I was searching through some of my older writing and I stumbled upon a poem that one of my friends wrote. For some reason I just decided to post it......

"Melancholy"


The better days that never were,
all seem to be only a blur.
People and time all move too fast,
I stay behind just to be last.
Innocence lost and innocence thrown,
are just little things I've known.
To throw it all away couldn't do a thing,
but kill a never ending sting.
The ride called life moves up and down,
but the people screaming make no sound.

Echo.....I agree with you on this poem. He is a very good writer. He writes mostly gothic and very dark poetry. Him and I have done many works together, and he always can sum up what I'm feeling. I have one him and I wrote together that I am going to post as soon as I can retrieve it.
