Do Not Smile At Me


Don't smile at me your smiles don't carry wait
I haven't the time to be nice nor patient
Though it is what I believe and to which I swear
It is not the badge I choose to wear
It is not the place to which I'm near
Happiness is not my chosen place

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
