C’est La Vie

Cest La Vie short poem

Photo by h.koppdelaney

Others knew it as a song
Some use it as expression
For me, it was our story
“C’est la vie”

How can I say this?
So many words to express
How will I start?
Let me say I love you with all my heart

From a distance we crossed our paths
Of all the people why the two of us?
They say everything happens for a reason
Alright, let me hold on to that

We became close
We shared our thoughts
Joked and laughed together
Seems like it’ll be forever

Time didn’t bother me
As long as I can feel you’re with me
Truly, you made me happy
Though I felt something’s missing

A year passed, everything changed
What we had is the opposite of now
What happened?
Can we bring back the past?

People come and go
A fact that’s hard to accept
Now I know the reason
“C’est la vie”

Seeking Shangri la short poem

An isle so lonely, that no one seeks. Full of allure and comeliness, that no one sees. I search, I seek, my Shangri-La, in solitude purdah of wilderness, seeking for my ecstasy. It’s the detritus they see, winsomeness, is what

La Spezia ode

Sapphire blue turns to white As waves greet rocks of black Bella notte, the waves promise, a beautiful night While the road rises to meet me, and welcome me back Boats rock gently upon your sea The clouds turning pink

Definition De La Beaux long poem

Billions of billboards and floods of commercials Bombard and pollute young minds and our values Where social vices overwhelm visual material So, what are standards of beauty and virtue? Is beauty really only skin deep, let the young ones judge.
