If it had been a Knife
I would have known
If it had been a Fist
I would have run away
If it had been violent
I would have screamed.

But it was a Rose
So I stayed and waited
Then came Kind words
So I listened and waited
With all came deception
But I did not see

Then I thought I was Strong
Then I do not Know
Danger can be found
in Roses and Kind words.
