Here Lies the Rose

Author requests article critique

Passion kindled rose will die
 beneath the weight of urgent need
  The flower’s limbs limp to its side
   when love no more will give it heed

   And on the precipice of time
  lost more, a day, lost more, a day
 sapped of strength, spotted, wrinkle lined
a petal falls, away...falls, away

Vibrant red, now dreary dinged
 few petals hold for lingering hope
  But certain, soon the winter wind
   last petals swing from withered rope

   Upon love’s mist no more to feed
  the petal last, all hopes released
 beneath the weight of urgent need
the unfilled, vacant rose, deceased.
