Tiger Roses

Poem By Leanna Stead

However long I sit,
Nothing comes of it
Save visions of your face;
Dusky roses, graced
With jeweled tiger-eyes,
Their penetrating fire
Burning brighter
Than the rising Sun.

To look back is to freeze in time;
to be fixed, rooted to a moment
that has lived its life.


Charge me
with your nonsense,
blame your tears
on me; I have no lies to hide;


You challenged me
to believe
in immortality -
