Frozen in Full Bloom

The cherry trees were in full bloom,

A swath of pink blossoms too early, too soon,

It has only been a week since the snow fell,

And my life changed from heaven into a cold hell,

Why am I lying here staring into that soft pink?

Why do I feel so paralyzed that it’s hard to even think?

Why is it that the things that should be so very right,

Become issues of the heart, wounds and tears in the night?

I cannot close my eyes for I see you now with him,

Remember my rage when I said he couldn’t be your friend?

Of course, you didn’t know that I was suspicious long ago,

And followed you one night as you braved the driving snow,

“Off to take care of my sick sister, her temperature is so high,”

You whispered you loved me and then kissed me goodbye,

Of course, the cherry trees were budding, covering up your lie,

They were promising spring too early, Somehow I could tell,

And your pink lips looking inviting, inviting me to hell,

Did you think my love was too thin, like the ice upon the pond?

Or did his love touch your heart, and fuel your fires to bond?

Did you think I would stand idly by, while you took your time to choose?

 I’ve got my pride, I don’t think I’ll wait, even if I lose,

You say you will always love me even though you don’t really “love” me,

He added spice to your life, made your love easy to feel and see,

But should you decide you need stability, just ring my warning bell,

With flowers and sweets I’ll escort you down, to my life in my cold, cold hell.

  1. “… just ring my warning bell,
    With flowers and sweets I’ll escort you down, to my life in my cold, cold hell.”

    Warning: Beware! 🙂
    I wouldn’t want to be on the other end of this passion and scorn … Well expressed!

    1. Something from my dark side squeezed through the barrier. Now that’s it’s gone, perhaps just kind words for awhile. Thanks for commenting.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!

    1. Love is bliss, sometimes hit or miss. Or sadness and pain. Emotions stir the creative side. Thanks for your comments. Feedback also stirs creativity.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!

      1. Life is meant to be taken with doses of kindness. Thank you for stopping by.

        May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!

    1. Thanks, Sam. The closing line just seemed appropriate at the time.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!

    1. Missed you, Pen. Glad to have you back. Frozen in Full Bloom is a long ago story but brought to mind again when a young friend went through the agony of a relationship off the edge. Perhaps why I’ve stayed alone for so long is the fear of all the trauma and drama. How is Bess? And how are you?

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!

    1. Thanks for the read. Goosebumps are aways encouraged. Thanks.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!
