 Poetry and Stories



I have nothing to gain
And everything to lose
If I continue with this
Dreadful case of the blues.

You may think that I think
My own life is divine
I smile when I'm sad
Can you see how my eyes shine?

The past that is gone
Was ever so bright
But my future looks
Dismal and dark as the night.

Wish I may
Wish I might
Have a restful sleep tonight

But sleep does not help at all, it seems
You have gone and left me
Alone in my dreams.
