Violence

a smile that could light up a thousand rooms
humor that can sting the sharpest soul
will you allow yourself to fall
double-down and let roll?

of roses red
and violets blue
these are the questions
to fall in love with you.

control your emotions
reel them into thread
push through dark needles
and put your thoughts to bed?

of roads red
and violets blue
not to be mistaken
what this can do to you.

when you don’t want the world to know
the shelter you need
allow your walks to get longer
allow that blood to bleed?

of roses red
and violence blue
these are the answers
I’ll forever need from you.
