We love to live

We love to live and live to die-
But yet again we have no right-
We breathe through fights that take life-
But yet again we begin again-

I write my name a thousand times-
But it still doesn't make sense in this rhyme-
The day flies by with no one by my side-
To close for comfort in this bottle of wine-

The Untitled title for this name-
An oxymoron in this game-
It doesn’t make sense that I’m so mad at myself-
Then again it was the hand I was dealt-

I wasted time wondering about this-
Because it wasn’t that long ago when someone knew how I felt-
I don’t care why I’m here or what I’m doing to belong-
It hurts me to realize that I will die in time-

I will move on and be gone-
But how can they live without my song-
Words that only make sense to my understanding-
How can we live with that under handing-

We love to live and live to die-
But yet again we have no right-
We breathe through fights that take life-
But yet again we hide our sins in this-

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
