Rose of Sharon

by boxcartenant

When I was strong, you made me weak
by teaching me shame
When I was brave, you made me afraid
by teaching me heartache

A black and white bird:
"you look so familiar."
"is that what you heard?"
This river flows through us.

"that never happened."
Were both of us liars?
What was our passion?
"you're playing with fire"

When I was intelligent, you made me confused
by teaching me curiosity
When I was adventurous, you made me content
by showing me love
