Gift Wrapped.

The rose, deep red,
Soft petals,
Thorns,
All as expected.
Given as a gift,
Received as a sin,
Two hearts, torn within,
One gesture.

The chocolate box.
Ribbon tied,
soft brown,
Expensive.
Thornton's. As expected.
Given with a tear,
Received with a beer.
Dismissed with a grin.

The teddy bear.
Huggable,
Soft white,
Company.
All as expected.
Given with thought,
previously sought.
Yet rejected.

The final ring,
Engagement.
Beautiful.
Eternity.
Lost, as expected.
Given with greed,
Water for seed,
Previously real.
Now it's over.
