a second thought

You buy her a rose.
Make your way downtown only to find out through a text she wants to see other people.
You go to throw away your rose......but before you do, it hits you.
The flower is no less beautiful.
It smells just as heavenly.
The world still turns and you notice all the eyes on you and your beautiful flower....
What a lucky girl she must be they think.
What a lucky guy I am I think. 
To hold such a elegant flower.
He leaves it on the train seat and leaves.

Grieves and on train seat flower leaves. And if I were to suppose, It was such a lovely rose, But being I left her and rose behind Still have my own piece of mind. Write many more of your poems, As pretty as they can be; Will set our soul free; Yes, you and me. James Thomas Horn, Retired Veteran, www.story-telling-around-the-world.com

Hi Hani,,, Thank you for the comment on my comment. I am looking forward, in hearing from you again. You will enjoy this site, I guaranteed or my fun poetry name isn't PD :) I highly recommend the blog area, there you can read what is hot, and what is going on here at The Poetry Soup. If you like click on some of the side features ((-UNDER- the area where it reads "Member Poets/Poems")) to the left of this comment. -That's my favorite soup section. If you scroll down to where it reads "Contests" you will enjoy the "Contest Winners: Member " feature. Click away, and check out what's cooking. Enjoy reading and following, many of the incoming winners. "I SURE DO." Please feel free to comment and read any of my poems, if you'd like. My poems are not the easiest to understand:) I'm still learning myself. However, I enjoy encouraging others. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I might be able to help, if not I will recommend someone. Take Care~LINDA~

Hani, this is such a good testament of love and broken hearts. Life is what it is, and it teaches us to be strong. We must just have faith and move ahead. Lovely first write for the SOUP. Welcome and I am glad you shared. Take care my new friend, Jess :)
