Everything about this is love.
[Four panel comic: First panel has a green stem with thorns on it and a person’s finger being pricked by one of the thorns. The person is saying “ouch!” off camera. Second panel has the entire rose and the person in view. The person says, “Oh the wondrous poetry of nature: that its most beautiful creation is covered in thorns. My attempts to grasp it are repelled, leaving me bloody but reverent.” Third panel has the rose standing by itself in a landscape. The fourth panel has a box stating the word “later” and the rose standing next to a white flower while saying “Some creep tried to touch me today so I shanked him”]
