Favorite Quote:
You can't always get what you want...

I turn toward the dark
And see those who have left
Backstabbing "friends"
Comitting emotional theft

They remind me of roses
Red and ripe
Always delightful
A beautiful sight

But don't be fooled
They're full of lies
They're like you and me
Because everything dies

Roses are great
As long as you need
Turn away for a second
And you're left with a weed...

"Duct tape is like the force. It has a light side, a dark side, and it holds the world together."

Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another,
"What! You too? I thought I was the only one."
- C. S. Lewis

I wish my poetry was as heartfelt as yours! Brilliant!
