Accident - Poem by E. A. Taopih

The world need not know
That I am too afraid,
With my heart that you've broken,
To give you what I made

In the scented white flora
Was a secret I hid
In disguise they were given
To be found I forbid

And the story of how
They were lost, I know not
All I know is I never
Did ask for a lot

All I wanted was that
You receive what I give
As long as you did so
I'd reason to live

I painstakingly drew
Your face onto the sheet
I was planning to give it
The next time we'd meet

But when I learned of how
You cared not for my gifts
My life lost all reason
And was then set adrift

Now I hide all my sorrow
And I try not to cry
Only cowards would rather
Be weeping than die

So you read through this poem
And you know what it means
But it's nothing and worthless
Like my love for you seems
