A Rose For You

here i am bound with chains
wanting to give you this deep red rose
as a token of my love for you
my sweet and precious angel
i long to be set free of this darkness
that controls this heart of mine
i don't mean to cause all of this pain
i just want to be free like you
oh sweet angel
will you please take this deep red rose
for i picked it just for you
right before the darkness took over
how was i to know
that i would turn out like this
not quite human anymore
i'm more of an animal now
don't know exactly
what caused this change in me
i just want you to have this deep red rose
so that you will always remember
that i love you my precious and sweet angel
don't let the vampire you see chained here
scare you away from me
for i could never hurt you
for you are my sweet angel
and this deep red rose
is just for you

I like this poem very much! Wonderful theme.. Anything dark like this very much inspires me... I'm glad the pic I sent you gave you so much inspiration to write something so romantic and full of longing. : -)
