Life isn't measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments which take your breath away.

You are only as strong as your weakest link.

you promised me the sun and stars,
and i could believe it when
we spent all our time chasing fantasies
but now i’m lost [feeling like drowning]
screaming for all you have denied me
[and for the rest of my life, i will face this sea
and jump ship alone]

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

Quite a spectacular whim I'd say. I'm really loving reading your poetry :) And like Mckay said, "AWESOME first line."

I love poems that come out of nowhere, somewhere but subconciously. Title's great: it speaks for itself. I love the beginning: "you promised me the sun and/ stars"—beautiful line.
