A rose without thorns is a cat declawed...being your wife is potential deformed.



Sharlie Louise is a young poet from Melbourne, Australia. Louise's verses capture the purity of love, and they remind us of how beautiful passion can be when it truly comes from the heart.


A KING'S WORD


I watched your mouth form broken vows,

until excuses had run dry,

your tongue was thick with her thrush,

I guess they’re called white lies.


While away with her you sent me flowers,

blossomed death to stem the pain,

alongside the card read “for my Queen”,

while in my queen-sized bed she lay.

YOU MARRIED MY SHADOW


I don't want to become a wife again, if it means becoming less again.


A rose without thorns is a cat declawed.

Being your wife is potential deformed.

You only loved me when I was small.
