I lie on a beach chair
The cool of the morning
Thaws slowly
Comfortably warm
The sun begins rising
As I try
To rest

Eyelids closed
But the sun is still visible
Beating on my face
Hot and unbearable
As I try
To rest

I can feel the heat lessening
The sky growing darker
The evening breeze
Sweeping across me
As I try
To rest

And then the night comes
Moonlight shines
The cold wind
Gives me goosebumps
As I finally
Rest

Favorite Quote:
I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

Congratulations on getting it published, it was good but I've liked other poems of yours even more.

Seriously. If you're going to ask me to put a favorite quote give me at least 1000 characters. This will have to suffice.

"Me without you is like a sneaker without laces, a geek without braces, a sentencewithnospaces."

I dont know why. I just like it the best.
