Favorite Quote:
"Chivalry!-why, maiden, she is the nurse of pure and high affection-the stay of the oppressed, the redresser of grievances, the curb of the power of the tyrant-Nobility were but an empty name without her, and liberty finds the best protection in her lance and her sword."-Ivanhoe

The cicada’s buzz in my ear
I feel the end’s already here
The subtle crunch of dead grass
Betrays thoughts of the lost lass

And yet my end I do not fear
No ‘tis terror for your fate my dear
Never shalt I accept what may pass
That act wouldst appear quite crass

M’lady stride over to thine mirror
Into yonder reflective depths do peer
Shall you find a smile in the shined brass
Or just a lonely and bitter young lass

Harken dost the pain of your anger sear
My heart and soul into brittle glass
Now before thy silence shall it shatter

Starting out pretty basic, this is one of my break up poems.
