Forever Begins

If last night I promised,
You- my hand in marriage
or bought you a diamond ring,
And swore to love you forever,
I lied,
Because forever begins today

If I was ever so kind, dependable- decent,
That you imagined ours being a lifelong friendship,
You let me in too far,
You got too involved,
That person was a front- he never really did exist,
Because forever begins today

If we formed an alliance last week,
Forever- we againist the world,
Now would be best you forgot it,
I am a man of no principles,
so that treaty is null,
Because forever begins today

I cut my ego down like a pine tree,
Destroyed and burned the old me,
Now I rise; the seedling of a vine,
Too fluid to be defined,
Strong, but flexible like the reed,
Forever begins today...

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.
