Brother/ sister in my honest opinon, unless you are shel silverstein your poem is a tad bit infantile.

My Psychology teacher from 10 years ago used to say "When I am an old woman, I shall wear purple." which came from this poem, weirdly enough its always stuck with me.

Quote:
When I Am Old.

When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat that doesn't go, and doesn't suit me,
And I shall spend my pension
on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandals,
and say we've no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I am tired,
And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells,
And run my stick along the public railings,
And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
And pick the flowers in other people's gardens,
And learn to spit.
You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat,
And eat three pounds of sausages at a go,
Or only bread and pickle for a week,
And hoard pens and pencils and beer mats
and things in boxes.
But now we must have clothes that keep us dry,
And pay our rent and not swear in the street,
And set a good example for the children.
We will have friends to dinner and read the papers.
But maybe I ought to practise a little now?
So people who know me
are not too shocked and surprised,
When suddenly I am old
and start to wear purple!

Jenny Joseph
I started quoting some of it last year on a new college course to a person which...they just pinched my shirt and said "I see you took it to heart." I was wearing a purple shirt at the time....

New poem:

Take away the pain in my heart,
Make my life a little less hard.

Laying under my blanket at night,
Thinking about if this is the right.

Take a cigarette and light it on,
I promise you, I'll only take one.

Is it allowed to make a thread only about my poems/lyrics?

If you want, I can rename this thread to "Snowless's Collection" and merge it with your other poem threads.
Having one thread is actually better than several of them.

Black Rose

I'm not an ordinary girl,
In my head I like to swirl.

What if I pick up a black rose,
I'm afraid you'll break my nose.

There's nothing but dry eyes,
But I still think it's all lies.

Down the hill

I don't want it to end,
I just want you to bend.

Look me in the eyes,
There nothing but lies,

Seeing you down the hill,
Makes me want to take a pill.
