    A musician and writer and now friend, Carl Rousselll's poems are both interesting and unique. Quet and shy by nature, his writings and music reflect the opposite!

Best Poem of Carl Roussell

Again With Hope.

I
gave you
all I could
stand, fell down, then
left.

You
took it,
all there was,
till there's nothing
left.

And when I left you yesterday,
did you notice I went away?

You know you had me,
the one I would want to be
if you were near here.
When I call you by your name,
I wonder, did you call mine?

You
stop, turn,
you face me,
we erase this
past.

Life
has us
hanging on
by this thin thread,
hope.

And when I see you today
you never really turned away.

You know you have me, ...
