A Blue Rose Tragedy

Poem By Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

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.

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
I really liked this poem. Read it a few times just to see if it read the same way. Nice poem.
Great poem Terry...
unrequited love inspires as much poetry as does true mutual love
great poem! as everrone's said, this happens all the time, on loser whos only gift is pain and despair, and one winner who is showered with love and wedding gifts much nicer than the gifts given to the loser. well done!
