Rose petalled hearts

slowly fall away

as love falls apart

as stem dies

and decays

a moment of beauty

did we stop and stare

as it lit up our life’s

with beauty so bright

and so colour full

when in center piece of our room

it held its place

for all who entered

it could be seen

full of  pride and beauty

with red glow too

a rose petalled heart

full of life love and beauty

has passed away

with love and tenderness

it lived life to the full

untill it ended its days

  1. thats a sad one kevin love deep red roses xxjen

    • this was a bit of imaginative writing it just fell into place as words so i wrote but thanks for all your wonderfull comments jenny keep smiling my its lovely. i have a very spooky poem i wrote earlier in the year a lady i showed it to it sent shivers through her not sure whether to put it on here for halloween its bit of chiller.

  2. Hi Kevin I was reading this little poem and this reminds ome of a Chinese poem in a classic book “Dream of the Red Chamber”. The girl was negative about her life and wanted to use flowers to represent herself. Here are the origginal words (translated into English and I don’t guarantee their accuracy):
    The blossoms fade and falling fill the air,
      Of fragrance and bright hues bereft and bare.
      Floss drifts and flutters round the Maiden`s bower,
      Or softly strikes against her curtained door.

    The Maid ,grieved by these signs of spring`s decease,
      Seeking some means her sorrow to express,
      Has rake in hand into the garden gone,
      Before the fallen flowers are trampled on.

    Elm-pods and willow-floss are fragrant too;
      Why care,Maid,where the fallen flowers blew?
      Next year ,when peach and plum-tree bloom again,
      Which of your sweet companions will remain?

    This spring the heartless swallow built his nest
      Beneath the eaves of mud with flowers compressed.
      Next year the flowers will blossom as before,
      But swallow ,nest ,and Maid will be no more.

    Three hundred and three-score the year`s full tale:
      From swords of frost and from the slaughtering gale
      How can the lovely flowers long stay intact,
      Or, once loosed,from their drifting fate draw back?

    Blooming so steadfast ,fallen so hard to find!
      Beside the flowers`grave,with sorrowing mind,
      The solitary Maid sheds many a tear,
      Which on the boughs as bloody drops appear.

    At twilight ,when the cuckoo sings no more,
      The Maiden with her rake goes in at door
      And lays her down between the lamplit walls,
      While a chill rain against the window falls.

    This is only part of the poem. IIf you want to find the full version, see this:
