roses for thorns

 welcome to my world of crimson briers

carefully constructed to cloud my judgement

within it my soul forgets

to think

to breathe

to shout

to accuse

too flawed

too loved

the supposed mutual exclusion of thorns and roses

far from evading

encapsulates

in an effort to drive it out

i unlawfully assume your crown

a reminder of my unbearable likeness to that which i despise

i cannot do what you can do

so you give me roses

for thorns
