Valentina

Valentina, my beautiful blood- red rose mink

Once so bountiful in crimson now fade in pink

Tormenting heat robbed you of your passion

Once was red now dulled without compassion

The scorch of dry kisses singed your cheek

Thus in each advances you curl and turn meek

Valentina, share my heart to remove your terror

I too have felt the red of heat in my heart before

I too know the idea of love masked in lust and desire

I too have succumbed, fell in that desperate quagmire

Time and familiarity taught me to doubt in such

Yet not this one- he carries his dyes with his touch

To blush you red when sees you a blank canvass

Let him flush you full crimson in your waking days

Valentina, he will not burn us like the others’ ways

For there is the one hand to hold in the end

The one to shade us from the burning of the sun

The one who will quell us with a cool blow of mirth

Valentina, share my heart and release misgivings

Bloom red once more without lust but with honor

Impetuous scalding heat is temporal, Love is eternal

Valentina is the rose breed name here in the country. It’s petals are always deep red and it blooms in clusters. This summer all the blooms are coming out pink.

    • Gratitude for the like. I grew up with the classical style of poetry. It’s really fun to rhyme:)

        absolutely. I only started reading poetry in the last three years. I am only just beginning to have clear visualizations from it. That is part my mind and unwillingness to not watch television though
