Forever?

Those perfect crimson roses

You left lying on my doorstep,

The tea-stained note wrapped around the stems

'Forever;'

One word can mean so much,

And it crashed into my heart like a bunched fist.

Those perfect crimson roses

Are still by my bedside

Fraying, dying, crinkling,

But my feelings for you live 'forever'.

What happened between this love.

The End
