"I think there is only one greatness for man. If a man can bridge the gap between life and death. I mean, if he can live on after he has died, maybe he was a great man. To me the only success, the only greatness, is immortality."--James Dean

youve brought me somewhere i have never travelled
my experience in nonexistent,and has been avoided
but your eyes have their wondrous gleam
in your smallest smile,lies the power which encloses
me,a smile that is potent and brilliant

the slightest glance at a thing such as me,will
easily bend me to your will
though i closed myself as fingers,
i always open petal by petal when you call for it

you do not wish to be near,i and
my life will once again shut,and grieve
for when the heart of this wilting flower imagines
you,a fragment of itself descends into oblivion

nothing which i will experience in this world will equal
the power of your intense brilliance:whose texture
compels me,with you on a pedestal,unable to be
touched,rendering death and forever with each

i do not know why you possess such marvel,
only i,and i alone,see your existence as a gift
from a higher power that i do not believe in
nobody,not even god,can compare you you,
my love

The author's comments:
This is another poem from my English final. I tried to imitate e e cummings, which is why there is no correct punctuation, or capitalization, or spacing. This poem was also written from personal experience. All of these stanzas reflect the emotions I was feeling during the 8 months of falling.
