Rose so Blue

The tragedy of intolerance causes unneccessary pain. How can people be so blind. Love is not gender specific. Oh, rose so blue Dripping with the evening dew Your petals are so alive Without the rain, you continue to thrive While the petals of the flower inside of me Are quickly wilting in this reality Our mating was just society’s game For the end of our romance none can be blamed Both understood it that price that must be paid To live in this society our secrets must remain in the shade Some like us walk in the shadows living a double life But he chose acceptance, I agreed, and became his wife But something happened on the day we wed I fell in love, many tears were soon shed My life was filled with regret How would I ever forget? But today I understand He loves another man In this we were the same Our marriage was just a game

A passionate verse...Be strong, and try to remember YOU are good. The fault is not in you. Walk, head high...there will be another sunrise! Cynthia
