Forget-me-not

The five petals of austere blue;
‘She loves me; she loves me not'.
The forget-me-not mutilated;
‘He loves me; he loves me not’.

Playing the devil's advocate:
‘He who suffers the most, cries out, 
baring his wounded pride to all.'
A bit of flirting; love was sought. 

Having second thoughts crowding in,
all reason drowned out in the din.
‘The less said the better’, sage advice.
Being shamed in front of their kin.

Being naïve, her only ‘sin’.
 ‘She loves me; she loves me not’.
Trust and honour mutilated.
‘He loves me; he loves me not’.

    I remember doing this as a teenager, and really believing it would reveal the truth all those beautiful flowers destroyed ! Lovely poem-- so true about playing 'the devils advocate'-- opening ourselves up, can result in more pain.

    I did with gousblomme - they have more petals and the suspense lasts longer - the answer remains the same.... ;-)

    Jag, I have lived long enough to know that there is not such thing as an "innocent party"
