Wilted Rose

A rose is just a rose is just a rose is just a rose 
I truly have always felt they fill too many words of prose. 
I tried to fit the image of some plain old rose you see 
I'd rather be a daisy, sunflower, daffodil morning glory.. 
I held my tongue when after I said roses have always bored me 
of all the flowers that i love he chooses that one to pin me. 
He casts the blame on a stranger that did nothing to him at all 
they both know stoop with fevered plea
such arrogance will cause a fall. 
I find it dumb, ridiculous because my friends I'll tell you this 
I've never meant a single thing to him he plays pretend. 
He needs revenge so here I am my arms splayed wide for pain 
he calls me jealous, delusional and even took my friend. 
She won't talk to me right now and all because of this.... 
foolish crap and hateful words and tons of words so meaningless. 
And just in case it's been implied there's a man that cares for me, 
well no there's not my poet friends I am alone you see. 
A girl can't be amazing sweet 
and then a jealous ***** 
You don't know just what I know 
or how I even feel. 
Fancy words wrapped up in verse 
and petals lead the way 
a rose is still a boring rose 
pink, purple, paisley grey. 
I never want to hear the words rose, bud or petals now 
it pricks me with the thorns of hurt 
I can't believed I tried to fit the typical rose part. 
I'll take it down and be myself 
although he has his vision 
go find it now and let this be 
I'm done with love 
it's my decision.

    ‡ Well, That's The Kentucky Derby And The Preakness, Sweet Beautiful Juniper..No Wilted Flowers Here Within Your Gifted Lovely Beauty's First Two Paintings In Poetry My Heart And Eyes Have Thus Beheld. I Am Not Truly A Super Duper Rose Fan Either Yet Metaphorically As Figuratively, They Fit Sooo Well The Verses Vase. This Being Said, 'You,' Are An Amazing Poetess I Can Surely See. A Red Red Rose The English Sonneteer Cried As They Bled, Their Love's Most Beautiful Lines. Love To You, Rachel ‡
