In the corner of a table
Lies a faded rose

A faded red rose
It lays as it has layed

For years
Letting time wear it down

It doesn't care
Hands reach out

Without a reason
Crush and bruise its faded petals

Destroying what was left

Of something beautiful
People may ask

What is this faded rose?


The question is

Who is this faded rose?
Every person you taunted
Every person you tormented
Every person you shunned
We are here

We are back
With a rose of our own

A black rose
And it calls for you

The Rose Of Death

Calls for you
There can be no ignoring

Now it's your turn
To be torn apart

The Rose Of Death

Will see to that
For every word you sreamed

It will scream

A hundred thousand more
For every blow you dealt

Comes ten more
Everything returns tenfold
By The Rose Of Death



The Faded Roses

You crushed

I wrote this one on my bed. I had had a pretty rough day. A lot of people had been teasing me. I was mad and thinking of ways I could get even when I just started writing. And BOOM! New poem.
