Warmth in FallIn the grey days of fall,More Like This
leaves keep hitting the ground,
while the tree keeps standing tall,
a safe haven for others to be found.
This home for happy squirrels,
will keep them forever warm,
when clouds cry and wind whirls,
in this tree new bonds will form.
And when the days turn bright,
some animals will leave their home,
but will keep the tree in sight,
afraid that it will go roam.
Yes, I am happy to have such a tree,
My little home, of which I hope it forever to be.

before I fade
and her curls go limp.

she is a romantic

a tired lion, even
if he knows Tennyson's beauties
Blake's marriage, Keats'

If it cannot be passion
and death for love's sake
(but, dearest, isn't to live
for love better?)

her fill of mediocre
lovers - cheap wine
and tired flowers)

I was afraid of loving you:
rejection hurts more than a tired heart
for it squeezes all emotions from your soul,
leaving you bare against reality's blank slate -
a state of invisibility and loneliness.
I called upon my friend, Time,
to help me forget you, only you...
Yet with every passing moment,
you plague my thoughts
with your humour and wit,
and I realise that I haven't forgotten -
I haven't forgotten you.
Turns out Time betrayed me,
so I gave Distance a call
to evict you from my heart
you unknowingly lived in.
Oh, Distance tried, oh yes she did,
but you just couldn't be moved,
for you were so deeply rooted
in my garden of love for you.
I told myself it wasn't love
and I tried hard not to love you
because you clearly loved another.
And I'm sorry.

I just hit my head for you. You see, I thought I'd made a mistake, one of the type that isn't easily recallable. And, well, you being wonderful, beautiful, and kind, I couldn't stand to disappoint you once again.
You see, I love you enough that screwing up hurts, even if you forgive me after.
