    I watched as that fire

    died from its flames

    from those eyes, from that soul

    I thought needed to be tamed

    but when I realized life was too short

    things were never the same

    and now that you've lost that spark

    everything has changed

    so I tried to make it up

    for all that I wronged

    when acceptance and love

    was all that you longed

    but words I washed from my mouth

    could not from your brain

    all the memories and tragedies

    like un-washable stains

    I had to bottle some stuff

    Just so I could seem tough

    like a red sock In the laundry

    need I toss out the door

    all the hate that it spread

    now pink socks are pink sores

    So please forgive me

    I promise I've changed

    No one is perfect

    but I'll do what it takes

    Come cry on my shoulders

    ive got a hand to lend

    come tell me your problems

    ive got a back to bend

    So I can dare to cover up

    What I don't want to replace

    Because I need you in my life

    For all the fears I can't face

    I love "Ozymandias" by Coleridge. Used to be able to recite it. 

    "Locksley Hall" by Tennyson is a close second. 

    "Andrea del Sarto" by Browing (Robert) is another one I love.

    I like the first 12 sonnets by Shakespeare. Works by Faust, Frost, E.D., Poe. "If" by Faulkner. My favorite poems I have published are titled, "Beauty's Sight" the prose and video "It is not Chance." by Josh Alfred. I haven't written anything decent in years. Shakespeare influenced me to write a series of sonnets on Emotions in my early twenties. Now that I am 31 the world of "poetic naturalism" is vague and stale.
