"Imagining the future is a kind of nostalgia"

She cuts,
She covers
And no one will know
‘Cause
She’s pretty,
She’s perfect
Or that’s all that shows.
She pushes,
She prays
For it to all end
‘Cause
She’s crying,
She’s dying
On outside and in.

This is really good! I've always thought something along these lines, but I've never been able to write it out before. Awesome!!

"If you are a dreamer come in
If you are a dreamer
A wisher, A lier
A hop-er, A pay-er
A magic bean buy-er
If you are a pretender, come
And sit by my fire
For we have some fox-golden tales to spin
come in, come in" - Shel Silverson

Short, but i feel like it says all it needs too.. great peom.
