Poem Of The Week: She Walks In Beauty

I should have posted this last Monday but I wanted my poem "Love" to have more time to get comments ;)

So this poem is called "She Walks In Beauty" and was written by Lord George Gordan Byron and I hope you all like it :)

She walks in Beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which Heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o'er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express,
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

And on that cheek, and o'er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!

My poem today talks about "Love" which I think the only thing in my life that always goes wrong :D
I am starting to hate love and I mean the love between a man and a woman not the other types of love! :P

So enjoy reading and I am sure many will relate to the poem which I started writing long ago but just finished it today ;)


Love, how can it be defined
Ruled by the heart or the mind
Opens your eyes or makes you blind
Heaven or hell that you may find

You will never know when to fall
And you lose yourself control
And the changes in your heart and soul
And your willingness to give it all

The nights you spend all awake
Thinking if it is right or a big mistake
The things you will do for the other's sake
The eternal happiness or the heartbreak

Love is that indescribable feeling
It is the pure air, which you are inhaling
When you are sick, it has the healing
The compass that guide you when you are sailing

It gives you wings when you need to fly
And builds castles up in the sky
It makes you laugh and makes you cry
And it makes your tears run dry

Love is that what mends a broken heart
And keeps it safe from all the spite
Even if it is love that broke that heart in the start
Only God knows how many will be broken tonight

Song Of The Week: Right to Remain Silent

I have been listening to this song for like 5 times daily now since I have known about it. It is performed by a not so famous country band called "Perfect Stranger" and basically I don't know anything about them!

Right to Remain Silent

Can I have this dance, my you're looking pretty
Is there something wrong, did he leave you hurting
I don't mean to pry, but that tear in your eye, gave you away
If you don't want to talk, we'll keep it quiet
But sometimes a heartache hurts worse if you hide it
I think there's a chance, one slow dance
Might ease the pain...

You have the right to remain silent
Anything that you say as I hold you against me
Will forever be a secret, between us two
I've been wanting you, but you didn't know it
And now that he's gone, at last I can show it
If your heart is tired, for the rest of your life
Lay your love on me

So many times my eyes have held you
Tonight please give my arms that chance
If you don't feel the need for conversation
We'll just let our hearts talk while we dance...

You have the right to remain silent
Anything that you say as I hold you against me
Will forever be a secret, between us two
I've been wanting you, but you didn't know it
And now that he's gone, at last I can show it
If your heart is tired, for the rest of your life
Lay your love on me

If your heart is tired, for the rest of your life
Lay your love on me

Here are my answers:

Number of books I Read or Own:
Many I didn't count them! They are mostly mystery books by Agatha Christie and others less known! Even I have those small Egyptian mystery books if anybody remember them :P Last book I read:The Blue Nowhere: A Novel by Jeffery Deaver.

Books that mean a lot to me:
All Agatha Christie books! I think I have all her books that are available in the market :D

The book I am reading since long but could not finish:
A novel called: Birdman by Mo Hayder! For some reason I am not that attached to read it! Maybe the writer style is not that good!

I am currently reading:
Birdman and a poems book for Rupert Brooke!

The poeple I wanted to tag have been already tagged :P

Poem Of The Week :Loss and Gain

The poem today was written by the "Henry Wadsworth Longfellow" and I can say that he has a nice name :P

Loss and Gain

When I compare
What I have lost with what I have gained,
What I have missed with what attained,
Little room do I find for pride.

I am aware
How many days have been idly spent;
How like an arrow the good intent
Has fallen short or been turned aside.

But who shall dare
To measure loss and gain in this wise?
Defeat may be victory in disguise;
The lowest ebb is the turn of the tide.
