Roses in bloom


(Image courtesy: Google)

The roses were in full bloom
The red like spilled blood
Spreading their tentacles
Along the old brick wall

The roses would bloom
Every year just before Winter
Reminiscing its old life
Before she went away

The scarlet roses 
Were her favorite
Though they reminded her 
Of a love gone wrong

The roses would bloom
As though missing her presence
Watching her as she slept
Along the old cemetery wall
