"I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead;
I lift my lids and all is born again.
(I think I made you up inside my head)."
-Sylvia Plath


Don't you miss the days
When there was nothing but the weather
To whine about,
Nothing but the weather
To cry about,
Nothing but the weather
Worth dying about?
Not me,
For with a million more things
To sigh about
Come so many more
To smile about.

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

Really?? I didn't think I did.. wow... You're welcome! It's my genuine pleasure!

I absolutely get what you're trying to say...I so miss that plain simple time when surely our effin insane heads didn't feel like they'd explode at the slightest touch.... all the time.,,.. Now is so complex and mostly vexation hangs around whenever you see stuff in the clear light of truth.... It gives me the shivers... This poem is amazing though... The rhyme was AWESOME  :D

I think the older I've grown the more complicated my life has become. So many complications bring forth so much pain, and yet there are so many new gems to find among the tear drops. I do miss the simpler times too, but the here and now is all I've got. Thank you for the feedback :D

In a way I do miss the "good old days" and yet I'm in love with the present, the now. The rhythm matches the words of poem very well. The theme too isn't difficult to understand.

I'm glad you understand. This really is a poem about change, something I am still learning to deal with. It hurts sometimes, but I would never go back to life before things happened because that has made me who I amand who knows what I would miss out on.

The poem is about the fact that I would never give up the hardships I've gotten in life because they've made me who I am, and for the most part I like that person. If we never felt pain, we'd never appreciate joy.
