DAFFODIL

By Steven Lee Hann

will be the day we part ways.

You always found my stories a bore,

with no idea what this simple flower says.

My sights now belongs to another,

Aphrodite granted me a whirlwind romance.

You are free no longer will i be a bother,

we weren't fate but misinterpreted happenstance.

My heart now belongs to him,

He treats it with respect, passion and care.

You'll always be my greatest sin,

how grateful i am the gods answered my prayer.

So here i leave you this flower,

for your love went unconfessed.

Without a tear, a fist of ashes and my tastes sour,

I finally lay our love to rest.
