Black Rose

A black rose

So dark

So discusting

So not what you

Expect in a rose

Any other rose

Would be colorful

Would be sweet

Would be the complete opposite

Only a black rose

Would be able

To make you see

That even the sweetest flower

Has a darkness to it

Would make you see

Not everything in life

Is what you expect it to be
