You gave me a Yellow rose
to signify the new beginning
of our newly found friendship.
It was the rose that
began the two of us.
You gave me a Pink rose
to signify your faux thankfulness
for our fantastic friendship
and your lying honesty, that
I believed with my naive heart.
You gave me a White rose
to signify your impure innocence
when I asked naively about that
other woman so present in your life
and I believed you with my heart.
You gave me a Red rose
to signify your passionate, using love
for me which I gladly returned
with an enthusiastic ‘I love you’ and
undying, naive love in my heart.
You gave me a Black rose
to signify the death of our dark relationship
and to signify my own new beginning.
It was the rose
that ended it all.
It was also the rose
That began the reign of me.
