Sonnet 02: Time Does Not Bring Relief; You All Have Lied

Poem By Edna St. Vincent Millay

No two people are ever the same…
By day or by night!
Their tapers both fan the flame…
The joy of their light!

No two rivers run smooth or strait.
The valley is ever winding…
But their journey is still binding…
For their love too collate.

No two forests are ever the same…
One maybe a birch another willow
One maybe mountainous another hollow
...But in the main
No two people are ever the same.

Restrain Me

Restrain me because I want to bathe in your sun
I want a southern moon to shiver on you
From the naked shadows, I cast over you
Restrain me I'm like an applecart toppled over

I've Frozen Time & Space

Fleeting as an ocean wave;
Once, surge waters knocked us both for six. "I know
And it is as if only yesterday for me
I held your hand in mine, a lifetime ago.

Let Me Fall Under Some Natural Disaster

Let me fall under some natural-disaster
The eye of a storm picks up the hereafter

Be felled as if by a random act of god,

Poverty Is A Gift

Father, poverty is a gift
Ask any bird taking a rain bath.
Son, don't make's me laugh
There's nothing but rain

Encompasses A Whole

Do our dreams leave impressions?
Like fossils leave-footprints
why count our possessions?
With others be wolfish.

The Falling Snow

From my home beneath your window
By sight I love you
By divinity, I kiss you
By touch, I embrace you
