i took
the half empty glass
of my
and held it out to you
poured it into your lap
when all i wanted to do was

but then i looked up
and realized that maybe
it was not as
as i thought
because you were turned away
and didn’t even feel it
spill onto you

maybe it was
only tears,
only water
after all

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

I love this! great work!

This poem really touches deep. I know how the narrator feels. When you give someone everything and you still can't help them...I love this.

I like the pesimistic mood of the relationship in your poem. Kudos to Sarah W.

I can't remember it clearly, but it went something like this:

"The past is the past, the future is the furture. But now, now is like a gift, which is why it is called present."

I really like that :)
