MY TWO CENTS




If hearts are made to be broken,
Guess mind's were meant to be bent.
If love is just a token,
Guess mine's been aptly spent.

If eyes are windows to the soul,
How can yours still seem so warm?
If life's a bridge, well I've paid toll,
So why am I still in this storm?

If dreams are merely vision,
Is hope not left to die?
Because faced with this decision,
Reality sure seems the lie.

If patience is virtue - virtue reward,
Ever pristine and chaste.
Why am I so prone to draw the sword
Of haste to lay her waste?

If pride cometh cheap, here's my two cents,
Endeavored to persevere.
Intelligence cannot be common sense,
Cause I still want you near.


Michael Anderson


Just diggin out some from the personal archives guys.  I will write something fresh soon - promise.



 For all behind was dark and drear,
And all before was night and fear.
How many hours of night or day
In those suspended pangs I lay,
I could not tell; I scarcely knew
If this were human breath I drew.

Lord Byron

Honey, glad you enjoyed.

Jeffrey, indeed, there was some passion behind this one...LOL

Sheri, Know you can relate    I am only sorry that is so.  Still happy you like though - I'll throw you a smile and some laughter now - catch  

Coco, I felt this one a little sour myself...LOL But I'm glad you like it.  


Thank you all for the kind replies

It's pretty sad when you've got stuff like this just sitting there ready to be dusted off....because it's so good!! The poetry I have that is collecting dust is terrible!! I enjoy reading anything you write...no matter what the topic. It's always perfection!

well, Id pay more than two cents to read any of your old ones I havent seen...
and this ones "lessons learned" are worth much more than two cents.
All our "lessons learned the hard way" are the most costly...
but we learn the most from them.
heres to new inspiration M,
its free for the taking...*smile*

Intelligence and common sense don't seem to be interdependant do they? Of course, I don't think intelligence ever wins out over the longing heart! Great poem, Michael!

I don't recall seeing this one! It is fitting though!  I wish I couldn't relate to this one, but I've been here before.  I'm sorry you're so sad, and I wish I could do something to make ya happy again.

Big Hugs Michael!

Beautiful and passionate.  Can't wait to read more once they are dusted off.
