- As A Rose

I saw him standing there beautiful

Petals stretched upward like the crown of a flame

His only conquest was that moment-

And for the moment to whisper his name

His bodice was ravaged in thorns

Driven from the inside to pierce his flesh

Yet still he did not falter

For he knew simply to exist- he had been blessed

I cry to the heavens

Plea to the moment's master

Offer my servant heart sincere

This is the vow I surrender-

Capture again within my breast the song of a thousand seas

Awaken the breath which dwells within the earth to seduce my humbled release

Replenish my heart to adore the divine, and allow me to taste the tears of sorrow

For these are the true privileges of the spirits purest wine

And the purpose of 'why' shall beseech my echo

Should the sands of time find pardon with me-

And favor my path with the laughter of her flame

Then I shan't neglect her precious simplicity-

Even if the blossoms which unfold refuse scent and turn away

And if the veil of the mid-day sun

No longer bids kisses upon my face

I only request that after my moment to love-

The whisper of my name shall never be erased

Allow me the strength to bare my thorns

And bleed my tears with perfect disdain

For these tribulations shall be the hours of my blessed lore

When I stand as a rose- and my crown is proclaim'd

 

I saw him standing there beautiful

Petals stretched upward like the crown of a flame

His only conquest was that moment-

And for the moment to whisper his name

His bodice was ravaged in thorns

Driven from the inside to pierce his flesh

Yet still he did not falter

For he knew simply to exist- he had been blessed
