    The fragrance flees from the flower,

    alas; The flower plaintively calls it back. 'Come, come,' says the breeze, 'its loss is no lack: You wouldn't have scent if it didn't pass.' ~from 'Particles', by Rabindranath Tagore.

    Beautiful Dreamer

    Beautiful Dreamer by Stephen Foster Beautiful dreamer, wake unto me, Starlight and dewdrops are waiting for thee, Sounds of the rude world heard in the day, Lull'd by the moonlight have all pass'd away..! Beautiful dreamer, queen of my song, List while I woo thee with soft...

    I was telling a friend here

    that I've written mostly sad poems because the happy sounding ones always sound too cheesy to me. Then I quickly sliced off this bit of cheese..The birdies in the trees, The doggies with no fleas, They all have too much cheese, So stop now, if you please.

    A Dream Within A Dream

    Take this kiss upon the brow!And, in parting from you now,Thus much let me avow-You are not wrong, who deemThat my days have been a dream;Yet if hope has flown awayIn a night, or in a day,In a vision, or in none,Is it therefore the less gone?All that we see or seemIs but a dream...

    “This raggedy man, he works

    for all Whom troubles and worries hold in thrall. He sings sweet songs of sun and dew And lightens that world for me and you- He opens our hearts- and pain has fled. And memories of childhood live instead. He soothes with the balm of love-bid tears The bitter pain of the...

    Rain BY EDWARD THOMAS Rain,

    midnight rain, nothing but the wild rain On this bleak hut, and solitude, and me Remembering again that I shall die And neither hear the rain nor give it thanks For washing me cleaner than I have been Since I was born into solitude. Blessed are the dead that the rain rains...

    One Of My Favorite Robert Frost Poems

    The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth. Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the...

    that smile and inject it directly into my bloodstream. My parents warned me about drugs in baggies Sold on the street but never ones with teeth and a heartbeat

    Never again will I over explainall my actions to you.Your face turns sour, I gave you the powerto do what you’re going to do.When you got me scared, I wasn’t prepared,and so I pandered to you.You justified your torture,and scared me into silence. You punished me...

    I Am (poem of Randomness)

    I am; I am me, I am not you, I dress as I wish because I am allowed too, I am weird, But I am caring, I am not into lies, Not even in the slightest, Not towards others, And definately not towards myself, I am single, But I am not desperate, I am smart, But I am not a...

    "He took the stars out the sky

    and put them into her eyes. And she looked past the shadows -at summer's white butterflies. Seasons change and people grow, still she waits there making angels in the snow."

    It could be your eyes.

    The way they stare through me.. Like you undress my soul. To continue to pursue me. Or it might be your lips. Kisses so passionate. Could be your energy. Pulls me in like a magnet. Your body language speaks so dramatic. Your hands grab enough of me I almost can't stand it. This...
