They say the last rose
of summer
is low born -
a slow moving blossom
that bears a crooked stem.
Pluck it carefully,
tender color
to raise the dull dusk
of your dress;
flush it pale and perfect
along your thighs.

You move through the trees
like pelerines at the fair,
carrying it in your hand
the adieu of petals
already inscribed -
never thinking
to score the thorns
or to leave it behind
for the one
who called you sweetheart.
This is for the:iconglory-be-project: While you do not have to post every day, you have to at least write something, even if it is a couple of lines. Please consider participating!

AAGH, you're amazing. Please take note. Love it. The imagery, the eroticism. Keep it up.


Ten points.
