Thorns

Another petal falls
She’s crying now
The prince didn’t
Love her back.
Another petal falls
She’s gasping now
A love of hers
Gone from this world.
Another petal falls
She’s shaking now
Clothes aren’t enough
To keep her warm.
Another petal falls
She’s staring now
Her dreams slip away
With the rolling tide.
Another petal falls
She’s burning now
Trying with all she has
To conquer her fear.
Another petal falls
Now the stem lays bare
Time stripped its beauty
But never its thorns.
