Roses Lie
shining like diamonds in the dirt
glorify themselves
hiding their ability to hurt

to see one
with petals full and a smell so sweet
but try to pluck it
and only thorns you will meet

draw your bleeding hands away
only to try again another day
to take the beauty into your grasp
knowing full well it won't last

roses lie
camouflaging all their faults
with the most enticing smells
to draw you to a halt

catching your eye
with morning drops of dew they sparkle and shine
with a splendor so untrue
