Unwanted

unwanted

With petals the reddest of red
Leaves the greenest of green
Plucked from the earth…with the intent to impress
To help an undying love…be expressed

Given up…
But not taken…
They must have been mistaken

For surely this rose…
Would touch the heart of any
It is THE symbol of love
And to receive one
Would show…

Admiration

But it was turned down…
As if nothing
What now?

Once separated from the earth
There is little left to be done
Never again will this rose
Enjoy basking in the sun

The red will soon turn to black
One by one…
The petals…will fall to the floor
This beautiful flower
Wont be the same…anymore…

All because love could not be returned
All because love could not be accepted

Unrequited

And that’s the way the story goes
Love could have saved it
Yet it was…
Left without water
Out to wither…

This is the life of…
An unwanted rose…
