The Flower Of Evil - Poem by Uriah Hamilton

Thomas Wolfe wrote God's Lonely Man

and You Can't Go Home Again

before he ceased his sojourn on earth at age thirty-eight.

The Flower of Evil, Charles Baudelaire,

suffered from venereal disease

and was obsessed with a lesbian,

the painful realities of Paris.

Twice I made love to a girl

for whom I wanted to fall in love with

but I knew she wanted no part of it,

what choice did I have

but to let her slip through my hands?

    Love that is not reciprocated or mutual is for sure a heavy distress in its bliss. A sad story in a lovely poem. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report)Reply
