    Post Your Favorite Poems, Lyrics, etc.

    my favorite poem of all time! (that wasn't written by me):

    by Charlotte Smith

    To Night

    I LOVE thee, mournful, sober-suited Night!
    When the faint moon, yet lingering in her wane,
    And veil'd in clouds, with pale uncertain light
    Hangs o'er the waters of the restless main.
    In deep depression sunk, the enfeebled mind
    Will to the deaf cold elements complain,
    And tell the embosom'd grief, however vain,
    To sullen surges and the viewless wind.
    Though no repose on thy dark breast I find,
    I still enjoy thee--cheerless as thou art;
    For in thy quiet gloom the exhausted heart
    Is calm, though wretched; hopeless, yet resigned.
    While to the winds and waves its sorrows given,
    May reach--though lost on earth--the ear of Heaven!
    It's a new art form
    showing people how little
    we care

    And I'd give up forever to touch you
    'Cause I know that you feel me somehow
    You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
    And I don't want to go home right now
    And all I can taste is this moment
    And all I can breathe is your life
    And sooner or later it's over
    I just don't wanna miss you tonight
    And I don't want the world to see me
    'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
    When everything's meant to be broken
    I just want you to know who I am
    And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
    Or the moment of truth in your lies
    When everything feels like the movies
    Yeah you bleed just to know you're alive
    And I don't want the world to see me
    'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
    When everything's meant to be broken
    I just want you to know who I am
    And I don't want the world to see me
    'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
    When everything's meant to be broken
    I just want you to know who I am
    And I don't want the world to see me
    'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
    When everything's meant to be broken
    I just want you to know who I am
    I just want you to know who I am
    I just want you to know who I am
    I just want you to know who I am

    (also, see signature)
    The Brain—is wider than the Sky—
    For—put them side by side—
    The one the other will contain
    With ease—and You—beside—
    The Brain is deeper than the sea—
    For—hold them—Blue to Blue—
    The one the other will absorb—
    As Sponges—Buckets—do—
    The Brain is just the weight of God—
    For—Heft them—Pound for Pound—
    And they will differ—if they do—
    As Syllable from Sound

    —Emily Dickinson

    "Have you ever had so much to say that your mouth closed up tight struggling to harness the nuclear force coalescing within your words? Have you ever had so many thoughts churning inside you that you didn’t dare let them escape in case they blew you wide open? Have you ever been so angry that you couldn’t look in the mirror for fear of finding the face of evil glaring back at you?"

    From the book Crank, it was about the authors daughter having an addiction to meth. I also believe the next two books are about the present but I haven't read them yet. I'll probably buy most of her books when i get time.
