White Carnation

Poem by: Marathongman

Summary

When faced with a decision the best
outcome is the one we wanted -
The next best thing is that it didn't
work out - the worst thing is that we
took no action at all. Wall flower took
a chance and got dissapointed - his hearts
desire was with someone else - However the
Shrinking Violet was attracted to Wallflower
She picks the flowers out of the garbage - finds
the courage to walk over and gives the Carnation
to Wallflower who got exactly what he wanted -
someone who was attracted to him, who wanted to be
with him. He got what he THOUGHT he wanted exactly
- to love and be loved.

Pasted wall
Flower stamped
Rooted still
Potted plant

Courage wilts
Petals fall
Stood up standing
Flowered wall

Zero hour
Deep breath swallow
Ego crushes
Stems and all

She arrives
Hand in hand
White Carnation
Garbage can

Shrinking violet
Understands
Picking flowers
For this man
