the secret rose

By
Secrets secrets are no fun until
One tells everyone, your story
So deep so dark it gives a chill
To all that hear its glory
Hush it is obligatory
For all to hear and to expose
For one it’s derogatory
The bloom is off the secret rose

Mouth to ear each time with more thrill
For one a distant memory
Flame is fed harder to kill
Rumor is now allegory
Truth hidden by details so gory
Can’t erase the auditory
The bloom is off the secret rose

One done in by the rumor mill
Without a chance of victory
The truth is but a bitter pill
Alone in the minority
Threatened by the majority
One’s poetry has changed to pros
Fallen tower of ivory
The bloom is off the secret rose

Hold your head high it’s history
You were just the story they chose
It is all just perfunctory
The bloom is off the secret rose
