    Description:
       Thought I'd try something a little different with my structure. I think I may have done something similar before, though. 3,4,5,4,3. But I don't think I've ever started and ended with a haiku

    dotsThe Thorndots
    -------------------------------------------


    I am a rose thorn
    Vowing to protect my love
    Always by her side

    She is the one, chosen for me
    Attached by a stem
    To the one beauty that has always
    Captivated me and my passion

    I watched her grow
    From a vibrant bud peeking with color
    To a full bloomed beauty flirting with sunlight
    That I grew with and protected the best way I knew
    But blooms can be plucked and thorns don't reach much

    And so I am a thorn on the stem of a memory
    I can't be grafted, as hard as I try
    Anyone that ever comes near me
    Is cut by the remains of my dying devotion

    I must be destined
    To forever be alone
    My home is long gone

      Glad you enjoyed this one; however, I feel I may have mis-portrayed some of the meaning. The thorn did not drive away the rose, but a thorn can only protect from a number of predators. How the thorn must have felt when his rose was plucked away by one. And the loneliness that would follow, for what could be with a thorn.

      mmmm yes...this reminded me of me at times....loving too much...overly protective, maybe doting too much...not giving enough space...being a thorn that chokes the rose rather than protecting it...."suffocating devotion which cuts her then cuts me...."destined to be alone"

    i guess we can love too much...

    i like the beginning and ending haiku in this...nice bookends.
