What I See, What You See

Is there a handbook I can read to see things the way you see them?
Tinted, rose colored
Beautiful and positive
For my eyes,
They only see black and white

Replacement

She swept you away like a tide

Swallowed you whole

You held your breath for her

Because for you,

She was worth it.

.

She was the most stunning rainbow you’ve ever seen

The loveliest rose in the garden.

But you broke her too

Replaced her with someone new

Kind of like how you replaced me…

…with her.

Goodbye Roses

They bloomed bright and well

But they can’t last, I could tell

They were beautiful, and are still

They brought me joy once before, my happy pill

But now I see they’ve wilted

I look at them with my head tilted

Since you’ve left, the sun did too

And I say goodbye to the roses that came from you

Blue Roses

Roses red and roses white
Plucked I for my love’s delight.
She would none of all my posies–
Bade me gather her blue roses.

Half the world I wandered through,
Seeking where such flowers grew.
Half the world unto my quest
Answered me with laugh and jest.

Home I came at wintertide,
But my silly love had died
Seeking with her latest breath
Roses from the arms of Death.

It may be beyond the grave
She shall find what she would have.
Mine was but an idle quest–
Roses white and red are best!

– Rudyard Kipling
