A Very Short Song

Once, when I was young and true,
Someone left me sad-
Broke my brittle heart in two;
And that is very bad.

Love is for unlucky folk,
Love is but a curse.
Once there was a heart I broke;
And that, I think, is worse.

thats really short and specific and im in 8th grade i love poems
very brave to admit, many of people do not dare, and ignore the others' feeling very easy.
Both are bad- - Heartbreak, and breaking another's heart. Well- penned by Dorothy Parker, who certainly knew her material (read her Bio through.)
A Poetic gem from a much underrated poet. Dorothy Parker's incisive mind is one of my greatest delights in modern literature. sadly i think she chose men with less care than her words. But a quite unforgettable woman.
Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job I've had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail......._+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+.....................www.GeoSalary.com
