Shall I compare you to a winterís day?
You are more dark and full of misery.
Hunchbacked trees will never once complain
About the wind or snow or stormy sea.
But you? I think youíd want all of mankind
To feel the joy of a monthly tax bill.
Perhaps the problem is not in your mind
Just the mirror of time makes you ill.
The red-brown blossom with cuffless pants
Became a tree with an old gnarled hand.
Beauty lives by escaping. Take a chance
And let worry go. Soon youíll understand
To make beauty grow in a loverís heart
Give it some room or it will fall apart.

***bboog,
I LIKE this one!
It's exeptionally clever and full of depth and beauty, despite the fact that you talk alot about ugliness.

Fantastic.

Wonderful way to write about a person that is critical and dwells to much on the negative.   I used to be like that.  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.   James

Reminds me of an old song - "Hold On Loosely" - but don't let go.  Indeed, you must give room.  Wonderfully expressed words.
