"I love you. I love you. I send this message through my fingers and into his, up his arm and into his heart. Hear me. I love you. And I'm sorry to leave you." -Jenny Downham

Love is like a missing shoe
Most people are desperate to find it
Thinking they are late
Thinking they will never find it
Thinking the shoe
Is all they need
But others
They realize
That they have forgotten to brush their teeth.
So they run to the bathroom
Forgetting about the missing shoe
Not really caring
And when they come back
They just switch pairs.

"it's impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might has well not have lived at all-in which case you fail by default."

WOW this is really good! I love that the whole poem is a metaphor!! I think this is brilliant!
