AN ORCHID FOR MY ROSE?
Your eyes lead me to the Rose
that within your heart your soul,
yet it is the orchid chose
that leads me here, a mind stole
in dreams of the perfect goal.
Now lost am I to you Rose
a loser in mortal shame,
inept another I chose
took a chance on just a name
because life said ‘one of fame.’
Alas this lesson I learn
it’s not how one sees the frame
the truth within this I yearn,
for i am the one to blame
for dousing our true love’s flame!
