Some quotes I really like:

"Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies." -Aristotle
"Every man dies. Not every man really lives." -William Wallace
"Sanity is madness put to good use." -George Santayana


Do you hear that melody?
Do you see it flying free?
On broken wings
With other things,
It's lost but not completely gone.

Can you feel the bitter taste?
Do you see what's gone to waste?
Burned to ashes long ago
Is something that you'll never know.
It's lost but not completely gone.

Smell the bitter sweet remedy,
And take the time to walk with me.
These things you never did.
Of your betrayal, I'll never be rid.
It's lost but not completely gone.

How long I've waited.
And this thirst has yet to be sated.
So I shall wait ever longer.
And maybe I'll grow a little stonger.
But I already know you're lost, but not completely gone.

These things I long for still.
So I'll listen to the silent trill
Of bitter loss and quiet hate.
And know that you'll be ever late.
You're lost to me, but not completely gone.

The author's comments:
I wrote this with a friend I once had in mind. He had promised to always be there for me, and I trusted. But when I really needed him, he lied to me and was never there. I still wonder where he might be today.

I don't have many favourite quotes , though I do love the truth that 'change is constant .'
For you , a thousand times over - Hassan , The Kite Runner
If you want to leave footprints in the sands of time , don't drag your feet - Rudyard Kipling

I like the idea behind it and the adjectives you've used to describe your bitterness.

It's almost like a song.

An awesome poem ( :

Loved it ^^ .
