From A Day To A Few

after a day of heartbreak
proving her love regardless
she knows her heart weak
and all only for him

but it happens again
and instead of shedding a tear
she draws strength from the pain
and hides her fear

as times passes
stronger she grows
closing her heart
not letting her emotions show

days turn into nights
Artemis guiding her dreams
nights fades into days
Apollo hiding her screams

then out of the blue
he calls her name
as if nothing has changed
she smiles her smile all the same

deep down
in her now cold heart
she silently prays
for the end to start

he speaks of nothing
it shatters her heart
he is her everything
but her world's torn apart

Goodbye, seems to be
the only thing that feels right
it's time to step out of his darkness
and into the light

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
