Black Orchid

He held this rare flower in the palm of his hand,
A beautiful, exotic flower, one of a kind…
She shined for him, but he squeezed out the sun, moon and stars.
And, all that was left, was a pale reminder
Of what was once a match made in hell…

I will always love you…

The fire that had burned so deep and searing,
Had been doused with too many tears…
When love is all one needs, jealousy is a cruel friend.
It tears you up inside, it drives you insane
I can’t live under such a heavy handed Master…

I will always love you…

She longs to hold him, but rejects the drug,
There is a need to go cold turkey…
She will not grow while the addiction feeds on her.
I don’t have the strength for this pain
I must wipe out the memory of us…

I will always love you…

Why do we hurt and reject that which we most love and cherish?

    the langague of flowers delphine …..love can sadly change from carefree happiness to stifling
    unease of mistrust and resentment…your words are sad but beautifully expressed
