    I agree with you...
    I can never read story
    and I have never read...
    I don't know how people can read...
    At the end...one will die one will live
    Let us live and read your poems...!
    I hope I find time to read...!

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
