To love and to be loved; to hurt and to be hurt. These are the ideals that make up humanity. ~Me (Lisa)

Stalking shadows,
Walks in the dark,
Your hand in mine,
Moonlit smiles,
Whispers of wind,
Caressing this night’s delight.

Broken hearts set to heal,
A savior
Sent to save me,
From pains of despair,
Days of solitude,
Forgotten in my love for you.

Purple robes of renewal,
A new beginning for us both,
Destined to fail,
By prophets of envy,
Shattered souls into thieves,
Thieves of our happiness.

But succeed we shall,
Ignore the world,
Living only now,
In this fantastical time,
Roses of chance,
And freedom is ours.

I wrote this at the request of my boyfriend, so I decided to post it (: We have had some bad history, but we are together again.

I love how you didn't mention love at all; for this to be written about your boyfriend, and for you not to mention love is just great. Love is so spread throughout poetry, but I love how within the lines you implied the beauty of it. I love the understanding that nothing will be perfect, but sweat holds more value than tears, and you might not have said that, but it's well implied. Wonderfully written LIsa.

Great piece... you've got a lucky boyfriend :p I can see you have great care for one another and I'm happy you found someone right for you! I love the second to last stanza with the prophets of envy and the thieves of happiness... perfectly described how other people try to end some beautiful things that we have especially as it pertains to the heart but I'm glad that you didn't let them steal your love for each other! Keep on loving! Lol I feel like a hippie... anyways great job. Loved it.

Incredible wording and imagery. My only complaint is that you seemed to have just change lines at random, which kinda messes up the rhythm, but otherwise, great work! :D 4/5
