A Very Short Song

Rating: 3.7
Once, when I was young and true,
Someone left me sad-
Broke my brittle heart in two;
And that is very bad.

Love is for unlucky folk,
Love is but a curse.
Once there was a heart I broke;
And that, I think, is worse.

This is a favorite poem of mine. She uses the right words and is so succinct.

very brave to admit, many of people do not dare, and ignore the others' feeling very easy.

Both are bad- - Heartbreak, and breaking another's heart. Well- penned by Dorothy Parker, who certainly knew her material (read her Bio through.)

A Poetic gem from a much underrated poet. Dorothy Parker's incisive mind is one of my greatest delights in modern literature. sadly i think she chose men with less care than her words. But a quite unforgettable woman.

Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job I've had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work
