Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


A Blue Rose Tragedy


A tale of two weddings
wonderfully writ,
weddings have so many
secret tales to tell,

the tale of love unrequited
not reciprocated,
is a bitter low blow to groin
to grievous heart,

to watch another happily marry
long soul sought lover,
is nail driven into coffin bound heart
wedding couple merrily,

depart on romantic honeymoon for two
one left unloved can only rue,
hand of fate remorse grown dark of late
feelings grown blooming blue.

    The tragic winners and losers in the the game of love with wedding bells to heavens or hells and the poem opens up a can of worms that in reality are so real and sad++++10 regards (Report) Reply

    great poem! as everrone's said, this happens all the time, on loser whos only gift is pain and despair, and one winner who is showered with love and wedding gifts much nicer than the gifts given to the loser. well done! (Report) Reply

    One winner and one loser. The loser is left with the pain, while the happy wedded couple ride off into the sunset. An experience that usually happens to most people at sometime or another. A good write. Lynn (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
