    A poem of beauty and pain.
    Friends are like plants
    give them warmth and love,
    no matter how they are cut down
    they will come back. (Report) Reply

    I would visit my friends

    A well crafted and beautifully written poem,
    the meaning I cultivated was the clash between
    old hopes and new dreams. (Report) Reply

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
