The Beast and the Rose
by Talin Mari
The rose petals fell one by one,
The tempest was heading west,
Unable to control this calamity,
It hugged each petal at its best.
The Beast wept for the wilted rose,
Witnessing the tempest’s arrival,
Cried to God to stop the damage,
The rose petals were getting weak.
The angelic Beauty stood not afar,
She glanced at the dropped petals,
Her presence helping bring the calm,
The tempest quickly sprint away.
The Beast who wept for the rose,
Hugged each fallen petal at his best,
The angelic Beauty saw from afar,
She mended all of the fallen petals.
