    Hello,
    I'm looking for a poem that I first saw in the pages of a psychology text book.
    Poem was about a man (possibly named Jim? ?) who was tall, handsome, smart and admired by all.
    Although seemingly a content and successful, the man is living in despair as the last line of the poem reads something like ' and he put a bullet in his head'
    The reader is left with the impression that even the most seemingly happy and succesful person can be troubled.

    I was wondering if anyone has heard of a poem or quotation that includes 'I hate to fall but fall for love'? ? ? ? The poet or artist might be young, male and has the initials BW.

    If anyone has any information on this poem I would really appreciate if you could dropp me a line

    Hi

    I've been looking for the title, author and full text of a particular poem (or possibly song) for ages. The complete absence of information on it really puzzles me. Using Google, I followed a false trail to another poetry site but I'm pretty sure that the poem I saw there was 'inspired' by the (unknown) original, for which I'm looking. You see, the trouble is that 'my' poem was around in the 1990s, whereas the one on the web was alleged to have been written in 2003.

    This is the unattributed quotation I saw.

    'I know that people come to change... we'll grow apart. We'll pass with age... And so our friendship is a phase. But how I've loved these days.'

    It's not 'I've loved These Days' by Billy Joel either!

    This is a huge mystery and if anyone could solve it, I'd be really grateful. I have a hunch that the source is American because the 'author' of the 2003 poem lived in Missouri.

    Please help I am trying to find a poem that was read and a very dear friends funeral and I can only remember the gist of the poem not any lines.... It is a about a ship that is gettin further and further away and to us it is getting smaller and smaller but to the people waiting for it..it is getting closer and closer..... I think it may be from the 17th century. I know this is very vague but if anyone could point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it... thankyou
