Black Rose

Deep, deep, deep inside,
A place in the heart, unexplored,
Lay a beautiful black rose.
Touched by love and hate alike,
A charming showpiece, quite ignored,
Out of reach, but still so close.
Some emotions that want to hide,
Hide, but they just don’t go,
Trapped by a beautiful rose.
Lust, desire, passion–takes time,
Hatred, anger and scarred ego–
To gather it all, in the rose’s repose.
Concealed mysteries of our mind,
Frozen like tiny bits of snow,
Hidden somewhere between the rose.
In this entangled mess of heart and mind,
Rivers of serenity that gradually flow,
Flowers of hatred unabashedly grow.
Can someone unwind the mysteries?
Mysteries, like a game of catch and throw,
Mysteries, of a beautiful black rose.

-Ishita Gupta


I am so sorry!!! I took an even longer break than last time, after promising I won’t. But well, life is pretty busy. I have not read your posts either, and I don’t think I’ll be able to read them all, even though I want to! And this time, definitely, I’ll not disappear again. I hopefully, am back on WP, properly!

Hope you are healthy and safe! Love and hugs!♥♥♥🤗

  1. I loved the contrasts of feelings in the black rose so eloquently delivered with food for thought. perhaps you felt like the black rose untangling from all of the duties. I’m glad i didn’t miss your posts as I wondered where you’ve been but I also don’t think there needs to be a schedule. It’s a lot of input and output and honesty is what is needed. It’s a lot to keep up with, I get it!!! ❤️

  3. It’s okay, Ishita. At times, breaks are exactly what we need. Creativity tends to go on vacation at times. You don’t have to be sorry. We’re here for you, no matter what! Beautifully penned. It was well worth the wait. ♥️
