a poem which describes where there is light, there is also darkness.
flowers are known as a beautiful thing, a gesture of love on valentines day. they symbolize everything positive, nothing negative whatsoever. flowers=love. love is known as a beautiful thing as well, smiles, intimate contact, marriage, all supposed to be happy. but anyone who has been through love, knows its not all happy, there are tears, hatred, yelling, fighting, etc etc.
love has its bad side. everything has its bad side. just like flowers. they have thorns.
just like you. you're beautiful, you smile and laugh at school or at work, and you never seem down. until you get home to your empty apartment. in dead silence you walk through the door and look at the room. and you feel alone.
you are beautiful just like a flower.
but you also have thorns.
that's okay.
i do too.
