The Living Poem


What I know of love is what I know of your smile
What I know of happiness is what I know of your eyes
What I know of life is what I know when you are beside me
You are the reason I have a reason to live.

A tempest came and devastated my soul
Lightning struck and these letters panicked
The mirrors didn’t know what reflection to show
My face was the shattered pieces of my being

This song forgot to sound and rhyme
These words forgot to mean what they meant
But then your voice shook the planet
And the Milky Way melted in your hands

I thought stars would fall and burn
And I thought they’d fall and break to me
But they fell into their right places
And you drew the sweetest constellations

Now my sky’s decorated, my ocean filled
My heaven’s corrected, my hell’s already killed
I began with the end; I ended now in the beginning
You are the lyrics in the song I’m singing.

I thought this fancy’s false
I thought the rain still falls
But all ends found fit to fit
Again, my poem learned to breathed.

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.
