L.O.V.E.


Long have my eyes been open,
Longer has my chest been sealed.
Over the years I have seen my soul chosen
Out of the tears and all the pitiful appeals,
Vainly arguing for a wandering heart.
Vicious am I for leaving and crueler to stay.
Exalted is Cupid and his darts,
Ever dispensing the joy and the pain.

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
