A black veil cloaked
My cobalt heart
My soul was scarlet
Before being torn apart
An iris clutched to my chest
Petals fell by my toes
When you chose the hyacinth
Over the golden rose
With shattered mirror shards
You severed the chain
Precious as a cat's eye
Melted by flames
This is a poem with symbolism
Black = death
Cobalt (blue) = color of loyalty
Scarlet = Passion
Iris = Cherished friendship
Falling petals = deterioration
hyacinth = flower representing jealousy
golden rose = friendship
shattered mirror shards = a distorted self-image and separation
Chain = bond
The jewel "a cat's eye" = symbolic for platonic love
Flames = Vengeance
