Treasure Island

Electric Lady

(Sacramento, California)


I do not know if I will ever get over you
You are like a drug
A disease I am immune to
The roses are slowly dying
And so am I
But I am like a dying rose
That has not lost its conscience
Be with me forevermore
Until the pain goes away
Then my heart shall beat its last tune
For you and only you
I can cry an endless river
As the mountains move heaven and earth
And the angels will appear
And at last they will rise
Love captures it beautifully
A glorious tragedy
It is fate, it is fate I say
For fate is everywhere
It is in the stars
It is in the mind
It is even in the heart
This is my gift
This is my calling
To wither away in tears
Behold what shall be left of me
A conscience that is clear.

    I especially like these lines... You are like a drug, A disease I am immune to... No matter how addicted you are they just wont be able to infect you with their love. Sad really. Allan Gerard~ (Report) Reply

    So movingly sad but beautifully enchanting,
    One would say from the romantic era,
    So openly absent, today.. (Report) Reply

    Wonderful poem.
    A glorious tragedy
    It is fate, it is fate I say
    For fate is everywhere
    It is in the stars
    It is in the mind
    It is even in the heart These are beautiful lines that I found very magnetic.
    Thanks! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
