Bullets in roses

Some people come at you with roses

and hidden treasures

of dynamite,

wait for you to step back

and give them your love

because they’ve given you

so many roses

so many hearts

so much bullshit

and you give them back

so sweet are you,

so innocent.

Some people come at you with bullets

knock you down

before you can punch,

because you’ve given them the right

by accepting

so many x’s and o’s

they call you beautiful


and plant seeds behind your back

create obscure hurtful


and pray for your loved ones.

I’ve always been the way I am

one face, one account, one name

and this makes me

an easy target

I know.

but I can’t let it go

I can’t be sweet anymore

so people that intentionally

hurt me with their roses

I kick out of my life

with my own Bullets: words.

    That was what you meant in your comment, right? Whatever others may do behind our back, as long as we are who we are, we don’t lose ourselves. Some cannot deal with it… their problem!

    Wow, this is stunning! And I couldn’t agree more about being yourself and learning to let go of those that are unwilling to accept you for you.:)

      Thank you for saying, but it is a bit deeper, more conniving and two-faced people who appear to be your friend but genuinely are not looking out for anyone but themselves.

        Yeah, I see that aspect, as well. I strongly dislike two-faced individuals.

    Ah, bullets are ammunition. Especially on the crowded trains of NYC where everybody is letting loose with F bomb bullets. I enjoyed reading this my dear. Have a good one. Be safe.

    If you receive roses from me, you will get roses without any hidden agenda. Regarding bullets, I’ve learned to just stay out of their effective range. It is difficult to hit a moving target.
