GREEN IS THE BRANCH, BLACK IS THE HEART

Green is the branch that I offered you

In hope we could start our friendship anew

But this offer seems over before it can start

As green is the branch, but black is the heart

 

The past has been bitter

Some fault has been mine

But I’m washing away all that poisonous brine

But you seem to linger, all pitted and tart

How green was my scheme, but black stays your heart

 

I still care for you

I want you to know

And wish we could plant this and help it to grow

But your inner feelings you will not impart

So green I have been, to expect a new start

 

Silence is golden

But not in this case

As stewing in your juices, it will not erase

The problems that led to us needing to part

So please take this branch and open your heart

 

But even the greenest of branches will wilt

And if a new friendship just cannot be built

Please know that I grow, and I plan and I chart

As greener and cleaner and strong is my heart

 

You still have some time

To think all this through

But I think that I know your mind better than you

So I bid you goodbye, even though it does smart

How green was my branch, but black is your heart

      Ah it was a long shot to try and fix this one, and I thought she’d react like this, but at least I tried….
