One Blue Rose

by pharp


You gave me a blue rose to say goodbye -

Your thorny farewell pierced my soul to cry

To pipe, a tune of hurt, bursting with pain -

Your words were hateful with nothing to gain

The love of my friend - you were pursuing 

While the love we shared you were undoing
Your actions were unkind and indiscreet...

My heart ripped apart, with hurt and deceit

I’ll air out the sadness which you have caused

The overwhelming grief has simply paused

Despite all of your lies, I cannot hate -

Broken promises will not seal my fate

No longer a puppet to string along
I stand before you, beautiful and strong

Determined to heal, I'll have peace of mind

Memories of you will be left behind!
