Tearing Roses Apart
Yesterday I tore roses apart
At first I thought
Why would I do that? They are so beautiful and fragile
They laid in my hands and I could’ve done anything to them
But I decided to tear them apart instead of placing them in the water
They were old anyway
They were going to die anyway,
I thought later on.
I could have just simply left them alone too
Not give any importance, in hopes that, someday
They would by their selves regain strength
And get back the beauty and the shine
But instead, I destroyed them.
I probably destroyed them because I was bored
Or maybe even because I didn’t know how to handle them
I’m not a good person, I can’t take care of such a frail piece
I don’t even know if I wanted a rose
For a long time I awaited for one
Expecting one thing
And when I finally got it
I tore it.
Like I tore everything else.
Because the truth, is that beautiful things can indeed belong with me
But I don’t let them
I destroyed the roses
And today I live in fear
That you will be my next rose.
