The Orchid Tattoo


He said, "You remind me of an orchid. You are beautiful, fragile, and exotic."

Orchids are known for their delicate beauty and exotic character. They had an intricate and interesting history. The meanings of orchids have been about love, beauty, luxury, and strength. I always thought they were the most gorgeous flower. When I was 18, I got my first tattoo of an orchid. I always have loved it.

The Orchid Tattoo

She was rare and fragile

With delicate beauty

She had exotic looks

Beautiful with long dark hair

Curvacious and womanly

Always dressed well

With elegance and flair

Her style was simple with sex appeal

When she moved I could see her orchid tattoo

Twisted like a dragon around her leg

She walked with confidence

And had a great laugh

Like nothing you could fake

She was happy then

Before the demon set in

He preyed on her

And tried to take away her strength

To fulfill his own desire

And wanted her to believe

She was nothing without his fire

She fought hard and long

For the demon to disappear

And to release her from his maze

Finally she won

And ran far away

And moved on to a new phase
