Grin and Bear It


She waits while drying her tears,
They've left stains on her face,
She does her best to hide it,
Since she realized what she'd been avoiding for so long,
Realizes that,
When he's there she wants him to stay,
When he's gone she wants him back,
She longs for more but has to settle for less,
She spends every waking moment,
Trying to grin and bear it,
But she'd rather be in his arms,
To satisfy this hunger that's eating her alive,
She wishes she wasn't afraid,
To live,
To tell him how much it hurts,
To care,
To trust him,
To want more,
To want him

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
