December at McClendon Villa: Day 3

Fisted

A rose to represent the love that you pretend we have
A rose to say I’m sorry, that you won’t do it again
A rose for the love that I thought would last forever
But that was before your fist shattered the rose
Spilling its petals to the floor…

A glove on the hand that once was in yours
A glove of a fighter, one who won’t give up
A glove, once lace now leather
But that was before the new rose blossomed
Awakening to love once more.
