this poem is kinda wacky...i needed something to write about and my friend suggested goldfish really being monkeys in disguise. well here you go egg lol

have you ever really noticed
that things are not always what they seem?
at times there are illusions
a barrier of expected themes.

have you ever really taken the time
to observe goldfish as they swim and dive?
for the reality of the matter
is that they are really monkeys in disguise

have you ever looked carefully
at people with weird hair styles?
in actual fact they are aliens
come to earth to co-write the 'X-files'

have you ever considered
the meaning of that common word 'love'?
because it is far from just an emotion
it's a priceless gift from above

I was only joking about the goldfish bec...but at least you made it comical. Very funny and nice rhyme you had going.

This poem made me smile! If you put a couple more stanzas on it, you could have a song!


 "The worst of what people do to one another is deceive.
Because when you love someone you control their version
of reality. If you lie to them that's like making them
autistic so that what they believe is reality is in fact,
not their true situation at all."

It's not the angry words that break the heart, it's the silence.

Someone said that true love is like a ghost -- often spoke of but never seen.
I've seen both and yet in my darkest hours, tend to believe that neither exits.
