A TRUE BEAUTY

She is a metaphor
for love and life and such;
so beautiful to look at
with a soft, velvet touch.

Handle her with care
or you'll feel pain from her ire;
her essence, an aphrodisiac,
fills you with desire.

Looking perfect every time,
she illuminates the room;
an effervescent flower,
perennially in bloom.

She stimulates the senses,
your feelings juxtaposed,
the world's most perfect flower;
she is, of course, a rose.
