"you know that place between asleep and awake, the place where you can still remember dreaming? thats where i love you peter pan, thats where i'll be waiting" Tinkerbell


A fragile beauty, elegant
as the 4000 year tree stands tall.
I love you, you love me not,
Less adored, must I leave before I fall?

Handpicked by angels - you leave,
Thus your presence flares and dies.
Unnerved by this sudden darkness
I Iove you, yet you tell me lies.

Deaths cavern invites me closer
Whilst I listen to you in despair
You say this earth needs better men
I love you- don't you care!?

'each leaf deserves a grave' you said
Jims story touched your heart,
Yet you stamp me to the sidewalk
Still I love, while you tear my heart apart

The author's comments:
One of my close friends recently discovered that I wrote, and managed to persuade me to send him some of my poems. He then revealed that he gets thoughts/phrases which inspire him or that he feels and would really like a beautiful poem made out of what he himself wrote down. I tried to fulfil his wishes with this poem, which combines his feelings with mine. He is now turning this into a song. I hope that this is beautiful.

the line about jim's story doesn't really fit - I know but he really wanted to include it as it is his answer to everything.

this was really original, I liked it. Kudos for writing a song about love that really stands out as unique. Have you written music for it?
