I Can Tell You

Thorn. ~ a composite photograph by Michael Douglas Jones 

I was not the first to touch the thorns beneath the foliage, to taste the blood on the berry before I savored the sweet fruit. I was not the first to feel the pain, but still desire the taste again, and I can tell you of temptation, of danger, of sweet, and of pain, but I was not the first to touch the thorns, and you will not be the last.

  1. I love this image, both the photo and the word painting. None of us shall be the first, or the last, and yet, we all bleed the same shade of red.
