Life has good and bad but in the end we determine our own course.

A Few Visitor Comments

Christina
I think that this poem was very intriguing, I think, because I am going through a tough time right now, and I think that this poem applies to my life.

Not Yet The Long Sleep

Glittering dark, dancing
Before my eyes, closed
Everything I see, shadowed
In roaring silence
I hear
Falling
A feather
Soundless, a brush
My lovers touch
Bitter, life's bile
Sweet, love's taste
Shadows of tomorrow
Darken the path of yesterday
What was will not be
What is, stands
Before my eyes, open
My life
