I wish you

Still to Be Neat

by Ben Jonson

Still to be neat, still to be dressed,
As you were going to a feast;
Still to be powdered, still perfumed:
Lady, it is to be presumed,
Though art's hid causes are not found,
All is not sweet, all is not sound.

Give me a look, give me a face
That makes simplicity a grace;
Robes losely flowing, hair as free:
Such sweet neglect more taketh me
Than all the adulteries of art;
They strike mine eyes but not my heart.

She Walks In Beauty

by Lord Byron

She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o'er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling place.

And on that cheek, and o'er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent

"Love: a temporary insanity, curable by marriage..."

- Ambrose Bierce

Who Ever Loved, That Loved Not at First Sight?

by Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;

And one especially do we affect
Of two gold ingots, like in each respect:
The reason no man knows; let it suffice
What we behold is censured by our eyes.
Where both deliberate, the love is slight:
Who ever loved, that loved not at first sight?

FoRgoTTen LoVe

I never thought I'd see this day
With all the problems we had in the way
Now the days have gone
And we are still holding on
To this love that is deep & strong
I know this cannot be wrong
People thought we wouldnt make it this far
But we proved them wrong and made the full yard
I never thought I'd love anyone like this
It feels like a perfect bliss
Now I know that dreams can come true
When I'm with you I'm never feeling blue
Your voice is so sweet, it makes me tingly inside
My feelings are so strong I just cannot hide
The way I love you deep in my heart
I wonder how this began to start
It's amazing how much we've been through
It just shows that our love is true
I'll end this poem simple and plain
Instead of playing a stupid game
Nothing or no-one will tear us apart
You will always be a part of my heart
