Adoration

Spread the love

Roses in their naivety wear blindfolds;
pastel red,
their fragrance, a moment transitory
that seeks

to align with the cosmos almost immediately.
I’d taken breathing for granted
until the day,
you stole the air from my lungs;
you are sweeter than any poem possible.

  1. ❀️🌹❀️what a perfect poem of love in only 44 words:
    ‘I’d taken breathing for granted
    until the day,
    you stole the air from my lungs’
    I LOVE it!!!

    1. Yes πŸ˜€ the song is a classic example of romance! Thank you so much, Merril πŸ˜€ so glad you enjoyed it πŸ’„β€οΈ

  2. That naivety of roses while seeking fulfillment is brilliant as a metaphor for your confidence at the end. When something is totally unexpected it certainly can take your breath away.
