Roses From Holland

ROSES FROM HOLLAND and an invitation
to join you there for the summer
well in my reply I said thank you but no
thanks if you’re just looking for a lover
I don’t do like that anymore I want to
know what this thing is now that they
call love besides I really can’t see any
future for us so I’m sorry baby and I
hope you understand, I am flattered
by the roses and those pretty pictures
of Amsterdam but we are from two
totally different worlds and wtf we
haven’t even held hands so no I just
don’t think it would ever work out
between us, maybe I’m just not the
person you think I am I said in my
reply…
Thanks but no thanks I think, I must
decline baby still if you think you still
can’t live without me then you will
find a way to prove it to me and well
actually ROSES FROM HOLLAND
is a good start, come on now your
you are just beginning to move my
heart but you got to prove your love
to me and I guess you gotta start
somewhere so ROSES FROM
HOLLAND is a pretty good start
ROSES FROM HOLLAND and white
laced cards that say please come
to HOLLAND I love you with all my
heart!

A nice poem. I wish we do not have to let go about love relationship but to nourish it to fruition Thanks for sharing, Bo.

Hello, I like your poem that openly tells the reader that, “prove your love to me.”
There is some insecurity in the lines because of the distance that divides. However, the ROSES FROM HOLLAND are enticing.
Hopefully, all may turn the right way. Enjoyed reading your poem.

Thank you,

When Roses Bleed Thorns

When Roses Bleed Thorns long poem

When roses bleed thorns- it’s time to prune them. Waiting for seasons to change- is like waiting for silence to resolve- conflicts- a game of pride and rank. When roses bleed thorns- thistles outgrow the rosebuds; until color is lost
