To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.


And the days to me
fly by;
so fast they fly,
that they're no longer days,
but minutes
turning into seconds.
Time's hands
ticking away,
flicking away
the past days,
that have passed.
The saying
that people say?
That time flies by?
It's true,
if you let it slip
through your fingers.

I believe that time does fly by, if you let it.

More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"

I adore this one!!!! Thge detail and thought in this is just outstanding, and the wondrous message is so true :") Time will fly by if you let it, and sometimes you have to stop and readjust a few things. Thanks for sharing this! CX

Hi Emily<3!! I''m glad i'm your first comment. I love how u started off your poem with  "and" it's like you never really began but just appeared from nowhere. it's like time. no one really knows when it started just that it never stops. loved it. -Caramel Kisses
