Sweet Dead Roses

sweet dead roses

blackened

withered

death on the fringe

an outward sign

of an inward fate

bittersweet fragrance

is all that remains

death’s deft touch

rotted your beauty

stripped your petals

leaving your flourish

like a distant echo

on a forgotten

brighter day

sweet dead roses

lying all in a row

no one to give them to

no where to go
