A Blue Rose Tragedy Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

A Blue Rose Tragedy

Rating: 4.2

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

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

unrequited love inspires as much poetry as does true mutual love
