Acquiesce

At the incline
Of the mountain,
Wild roses bloom
Dark red
Like the puddle
Of blood
At a murder scene.

I slowly walk alone
The hillside of isolation
Like an Easter Parade
Depleted of joy
And reduced to a funereal dirge.

I don’t think,
She will ever understand
How badly I was hurt
When she refused to acquiesce
To give me her hand.

Your depth is bottomless, bringing forth the beauty in your pain and sadness... I've been missing your writes. Amazingly deep and vivid. Thanks! Lee
