Unsaid is the greatest regret:                 true thoughts and feelings That were owed to others                 but never paid, A mistake we seem bound to make over and over again Till there’s no time… no one left to tell. >>more

All I can say is: Sorry,         that she died without my name. Now, I'll tell you the whole story         and where I would place the blame. It's not true, what some are saying,         that I failed to heed her plea. I was serving in the army         far away across the sea. When her letters turned more somber,      ... >>more

The image of a young girl                 emerges out of the casket… Up, out of the ground                 into—onto— The divine dancefloor,                 there to be approached By her young admirer         ... >>more

A girl of all the beauty that he could see, Dancing with another,                 alone and waiting— It seemed—                 just for him. Twirling and turning to turn his head…. A rare, rare thing is first love —true love— And, should it come to you, it is your duty to live it! That’s what the smile in her... >>more

So,why do I love you?         You're really not like me! You look different—you are different—         as anyone can see: Your skin's a different shade,         or your hair's in a different braid, Or your eyes and your face show that         you were born in a different place. We don't talk the same: We use different  ... >>more

Death's not the victor, after all;           the equinox comes as a scold;  Life cracks the ground in shades of green,           throws off the lethargy of cold, And wakesand grows from fertile seeds,           aroused from dormant winter's night When dark was tantamount to death           and hope lay... >>more

Living on the boarder between         Valentine Day and despair, Looking back, then on ahead,         always to find you there. Back to those old memories             too fond for me to lose, On to daily fantasies,         too many from which to choose. But here, still on the border,         I... >>more

Dear father, please forgive the way    I’ve cursed and defied you, And that I have lacked the courage    to tell you what was true. The brutal way you taught us each,    your children, to be good, And why you seemed to hate us all,    we never understood. I’m speaking now about the pain    of welts that striped my back And all the times you slapped my face    when I was talking back; The promises you made to us…... >>more

If man, as a species,    rises to the occasion And takes the heavens    by storm— If we triumph over every element    and elemental force That reality has contrived—    that endless universes Have sprawled beyond our    infinitesimal species’ consciousness— If then, in some eternal tomorrow,    and after we’ve learned All that there is to know,    we should turn, at last, Our spectacular... >>more
