wounded

a hollow heart once alone and free
opened to the world on bended knee
it saw the bright sunshine and
the spotted skies and dreamed
of the love it had once despised

a flowering heart opened full and bright
cowered back into the bitter night
love had swallowed it whole in its
decieving grasp. promising friendship
and hope that could never last

this tattered heart now rotted and slain
crawled away from the world, none to
rise again. for this world had used it,
only as it would, this rose envisioned
what once was so good

tis better to stay in your petals
tight then to venture and burn
from the hateful light,
