Jaded Valentine

Roses were glazed red My fertile heart to woo Cankering jealousy did spread Bright petals now jaundiced hue Violets were silted blue Noble ambitions to thread Blossoms with intemperate juices did stew Now mildewed petals cloak our shallow bed Tulips were glossed yellow My cerebral chords to cue Anon, savory tips did mellow Now stale cortex in dark milieu Carnations were flossy white My purer instincts to hew Your waxed petioles lusty suitors did invite Now browning leaves on tendered stems accrue Now barren soul rimmed by bland fescue Heart heavy from chilling night's dew No garlands around glib psyche to strew Only drab, dense weeds to bid me adieu
