You will never know pain until you look upon the rose that one lover gave another, until you see it thrown aside as they dance in their love and it wilts, forgotten and alone, staring upwards at the universe, so very alone.
A symbol of love, now lonely. Once the world, now just another boring planet in the sea of the universe. Once, a great monument of emotion, now....nothing. Alone.
I pray for the ones who understand the most. I pray for the ones who adopt my gospel of empathy. I pray for the ones who take upon the pains of others, make them religion, sacrifice themselves at the altar of goodwill. I pray for the ones who stretch themselves to become everything to someone they believe in, only to be tossed aside like a wilting lover's rose. The good die a thousand deaths.
Nothing hurts more than letting someone become your universe, only to realise that they don't value you as much as you care for them. Nothing hurts more than sacrificing yourself for a non believer. Nothing hurts more than bleeding yourself to make someone smile, only to see them frown at you when you wave as they pass you by in the hallway.
Nothing hurts more than letting someone be your angel, only to realise that to them, you are but a rose. A useless, wilting rose, waiting to be tossed aside when greater things dance forth.
