"when you cry, do you waste your tears?" Madonna

We are all thieves
whether or not
we are caught.
You stole my heart
and I stole time,
You stole my eye
and I stole breaths,
You stole a hug
and I stole grins.
Who said stealing was bad?
Who said it would feel so good?
So good to smile at him
Want to follow on a crazy whim.
Talk of good days in musicals and plays
whether we were onstage or not.
To not steal the moments in life
would be a crime,

wouldn't it?

"My role in society, or any artist's or poet's role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all."

Wow, this is actually good, unlike a lot of stuff on here. Awesome job.

I'd love it if you could check out my poem 'Change' ... thanks =)

You have such a unique and admirable perspective in all your poems. Different--reminiscent, subtle, smooth, provoking, beckoning, entrancing, and more and more.

This is really cute, but even more creative.  You have the ability to take an idea most people see a set way, and apply a completely different meaning to it.

It flows really well until the last few lines, where it gets a bit choppy. I like the idea, but I feel like if you ended off with a sort of drifting thought, rather than a question, it might work better. Don't get me wrong, I liked the poem, but I'm not a big fan of questions as endings for poems (anymore, at least, I may have done the same in my older poems) but that might just be because my creative writing teacher always ended with questions and it sort of irritated me. Anyhoo, it's just an opinion, take from it what you will, and in the end it is your work. Just a little constructive criticism.

Overall though, it was really good.

Marlyre! I found you!

You know I love you and your work. You should put up the one about the spotlight, if you haven't already.

When you're in a night that seems almost devoid of stars and you look but can't find someone to help you see. Look for that lonely star and let it guide you until you find the light. (anonymous)

I love how the fast pace of the poem keeps a vivid image of what's going on in our head!
