The Oldest Good Bye

When you hide your heart among the stars
do they ever smile for the company of such a lovely heart?
I would.

I would have dressed you, with my arms, and glue
angel feathers, on your back, to make you my white swan.

I would have grown roots in your bed, like a tree
and never run, after another woman's smile.

I would have put your dreams before mine,
but I lie saying this, because you were my dreams.

I had no intention of hurting you, like your love has done you, but..

..you, you had no intention of loving me
with the same love, that those before me recieved.

You think you deserve better, better than me, but
there isn't one to love you more, more than me,
and never will be.

I'm the only man
that loved you
as a god.
Good bye.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
