I got this out of a magazine

Love & Roses by Tracy Marshall

Love and rses presented by such gentle hands
So enraptured by the gesture
I didn't see the blood on the thorns
Prophesying how you'd hold me captive
With that two-inch story of crimson tears
Superficial as the song emanating from the radio

But barbed wire bindings only work for so long
I defy the blade and the flesh it holds hostage
That of my own, seemingly unscathed
To emerge into a saline fog, and stand unflinching in the wake
Of all circumstance behind that follows
As shadows in the trees, so in my mind
Your hands lurk in the darkness, gesturing
One more bloody rose.
