Covets of the lost Orchid


Flowery bloom
chocked in fumes
of envious covets
after a botched
attempt to vivisect
it's nature.

Suddenly it dropped
in the world filled
with fury to unmeasurable-
wonders, dismissing it's
Marvellic nature.

Ow! see them chirp
like morning birds
as they observe the flower
losing it's honey to thirsty
grounds, shamefully the Orchid
in dust surrendered.

Gracefully it never withered
to please the enemy rage,
it's scent gives life to art galleries.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
