secrets & roses

United States

everyone has secrets and sometimes they're hard to keep, but sometimes admitting them through poems and stories makes it a little better... at least for me

Message from Writer

Every secret of a writer’s soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind, is written large in his works -- Virginia Woolf

I am
    the paint on her bedroom walls 
    the skin of the grapes on her side table 
    the robes of her majesty left thrown on the floor 

I am
    the bruises he made on her delicate skin 
    the broken earring laying on the stone tiles
    the lipstick smeared across her mouth 

I am 
    the blanket that shields her lifeless body from prying eyes
    the dried blood left under her fingernails
    the delicate daisies from her son sitting in a vase

I am
    beauty
    pain 
    love
