Covered in Thorns

I will soothe and heal you. I will bring you roses. I too have been covered with thorns. –Rumi

My flesh cries out for comfort
For I am covered in thorns
That tear away my sanity
And leave me feeling worn
O’ who will bring the roses
To place around my head
On the day of my anointing
Who will lay me in my bed
Will there be a fragrant balm
In bowls of cherry wood
As mortal flesh is wrapped
In linen fine and good
For not one came to soothe
This weary aching soul
Nor brought a tender rose
While she was alive and whole
