"If I wasn't meant to fly, I wouldn't have these wings"

The clock winked,
And the sun died,
As it slowly began to chime.
The rain swung to the ground,
Descending away from their seeping masters,
Such sullen, sunken clouds.
The mechanical mouse scurries to and fro,
Tickling each window's light frame,
Musing on and on, about the sorrid fog.
Now the fire cackled,
And cast light demons roundabout,
As the adorments on the mantel,
Gossiped among themselves.
And such haughty walls moaned and groaned,
Mumbling to themselves,
Of nails and screws,
That never ceased causing such strains.
Now the clock winks one last time,
And the sun will never rise,
For the clock no longer chimes.

"Don't punish yourself," she heard her say again, but there would be punishment and pain, and there would be happiness too. That was writing."
--Markus Zusak, "The Book Thief"

Oh my goodness! This poem is so full of imagery that it is just so great! I even got the smell of an old church (I think that's what it is) to accompany me along reading this poem without realizing--really great! I really love it!

"It's a saying they have, that a man has a false heart in his mouth for the world to see, another in his breast to show to his special friends and his family, and the real one, the true one, the secret one, which is never known to anyone except to himself alone, hidden only God knows where."
-James Clavell, "Shogun"

Wow...just wow. This is really, truly excellent poetry. So thoughtful and deep. Very well done.
