A rose by any other name

Is nothing more than poison

A stem with thorns

Tempting you with green

And as you near it

It’s spike pierces your skin

Gurgling thick red

Through what once

Was virgin veins

Come quick my friend

Run far from it

Don’t look into its eyes

Hold back your temptation

Run to the beauty

The peace that surrounds

Live through the heart

Enjoy only the color

Of what life has

Delivered you today.
