The Prayse Of The Needle

To all dispersed sorts of arts and trades
I write the needles prayse (that never fades).
So long as children shall be got or borne,
So long as garments shall be made or worne,
So long as hemp or flax, or sheep shall bear
Their linen woolen fleeces yeare by yeare,
So long as silk-wormes, with exhausted spoile,
Of their own entrails for man's gaine shall toyle,
Yea till the world be quite dissolv'd and past,
So long at least, the needles' use shall last.

Why base your relationship on a lie? It will never work no matter how hard you try. Because you'll always know it, in the back of your mind, that It will all be over... Its just a matter of time. Why do this when you can do much better, you will find someone one, maby you have already met her. But that Is beside the fact, that a realationship should be based on true love and that is what you lack. So let her sit there and Lie to you, and keep on living the life you do. But just know that one day it will all work out, and you'll find out what 'TRUE LOVE' is all about.
Putting a positive spin on something perceived as negative... interesting concept, you pulled it off well, Amber! ! Brian
