Rose Thorns

You gave me a rose with thorns

And expected me to hold it from the stem for the rest of my life

You kept telling me to admire the scent

And I did everything you said

And while I have lived a life that I thought was all mine

I never noticed how much blood I lost

And how much of me you gained
