love and roses
i paint a lot of roses and i don't know why they're not even my favorite flower but sure as sin every few weeks there's another rose on the easel glowing more beautifully than in life
what care i lavish on them each brushstroke as perfect as i can make it and every time i finish i tell myself this is the last one i'm not painting another rose
maybe it's the symbolism that snags me into doing what i say i won't roses love love roses roses love the universal symbol of the infinite variety of that treacherous emotion
and just as with the painting the siren song of love lures me every time as sure as sin i run panting toward it and every time it proves a myth i tell myself that's it - never again who am i kidding - i'm a sucker for a myth no matter how many the times or ways my heart's bloodied on those rocks like a masochistic homing pigeon wielding a paintbrush i fly back to love and roses 2014 RC deWinter
