hola.

this is just a poem i wrote back in january and decided it should go on here. it was inspired by RENT. have fun.

oh. and the litte random dashes in between lines signify where the stanzas begin/end, since ffnet insists on double spacing everything...

disclaimer: hooray for jonathan larson for developing this wonderful musical! (may he rest in peace.)

Today

-----

Love.

Want.

Give.

-----

You might only have

a few hours left

to live, to breathe,

to love, to give.

-----

Reach out and grab my

hand, take that last

step, heck,

JUMP.

-----

Don't hesitate.

Dive right in.

Take a breath…

Live for today.

well, that's that. i know it doesn't rhyme (few of my poems ever do), but i want an honest critique. it's not my best, but i can't put my best on here, since nothing particularly fictiony (if that's even a word) inspired me to write it.

warm regards,

dark-hearted rose
