Sun and Me


The sun seeking my shadow
My shadow hides behind me
And when i look at mad-show
The sun gazes to blind me

I watch the sun from far
The sun witnesses only earth
Yes something called bar
Seperates me and sun since birth

Yes, i want the sun to merge into me
And i could become illuminated
But sun doth not want to agree
Yes, but moon is also related
To the sun by reflecting light
I am not the moon, i know the truth
Dependance does not give light
But victory always makes bright

But victory isn't gained by fight
A loser can be victorious like me
Yes, i could not face sun's light
and by light; it could never seek me...

    ya know it feels so good when your in the green shadow and ur going up to go camping
    and you pass up the oreo cookie up to Daddy to eat after eating the cream. And u ride and feel your body moving in the car. Close your eyes to feel the warm rays on you eye lids. Thanks to the technology that made it all possible. (Report) Reply

poet Ambrose Bierce

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
