Love Poem: Every rose has

Written by: James Kelley

Every rose has

She could curl her lips around fire's touch,
make the flames erupt into something
something more.
She could break the broken splinters 
inside my devoured core-
with a flick of her tongue. 
She could sweep it all away,
and watch the remnants settle 
in the glimmering reflection of 
her star kissed petals-
while making me yearn
for the fury of thorns. 
I would beg.
Pray to barter my flesh-
to be but a note in her symphony.
