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.

    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
