of roses
arrived today
their delicate scent
fills this room
but it is your
intoxicating essence
that still fills my head
so I close my eyes
and pretend
they were

expression matched by creativity - short, sweet and to the point - careful of the thorns in the roses....

Your poem makes one think about the pretending

which seems to be a prevalent disease in this day and time.

Its all some of us ever have. I like this poem little lady.

No - what is not to be is not to be. Better to face down the pain and go with what is surely?

 A man by any other name might be as sweet - especially if he buys you roses!

I love this Cindy! You have crafted quite a unique piece of poetry, one long stemmed rose as the shape...A great idea!   Henry

This is great....the poem itself is sweet and so sincere but arranging the words to look like a rose, that takes talent.

I love this. I like poems that take a very human emotion and simply state it. I also like the text in a rose formation. Nice touch!
