More of It to Give


What have you done to him?
The me I knew and grew to love.
You penetrated through my thick skin.
And melted my heart.
With an honesty that has no end.

What have you done to him?
The 'I-could-care-less' vision,
Has turned my frown into a widened grin.
And it is sickening to admit this...
But I can get use to it.

What have you done to him?
The me I knew and grew to love.
And now I seem to have more of it to give.
You must have seen in me my need to forgive?
And I saw in you a reason and purpose to do it!

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

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.
