you don't take things for granted, others do


you dont take things for granted
others do
-Melc

Im back
to my life
the one i
left

This boring life
it makes me
feel..

To think that
that girl
cried cause she
was sad

because of
the attention
she lacked

and here i am
crying
because a family
not of my own
is so far away

so far for me
to lean on
to say things
aren't okay

i miss the house
not of my own
the family there
that thought
themselves wierd

if wierd is
what you call it
then take me into it
i dont care if
im looked down upon

because i wish i had
a family like hers
but this computer
and room
is now all that i own

with my family located
on my AIM list
I feel lonely
again

Because thats
the sort of
loser
that I am

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
