I Will Never Satisfy YouI will never satisfyYou. I saw you not,But seeing you, saw all:My world fulfilled;My heart surrendered;My freedom renounced;My half-lie annulled:I love you.------I will never satisfyYou. I see you now,But seeing you, see all:My world crumble;My heart break;My freedom lost;Because:I love you.
Sonnet 2I saw you once and then my thoughts were yoursNo rest had I for then I haunt'd becameYour words like ripples down a river courseYour face I see forever and againNo star, no flower: neither sun nor roseYou are no angel, devil, creature beFor stars sing not and flowers only poseAn angel, devil? Neither'd hear my pleaBe mine: that's all I want. You, you I'd keepI love you. I can say no more than thatAnd if you leave, I know that I will weepBecause my love for you I can't combatYour ice-blue eyes I see them burning coldBut these are memories so faded, old.
Plane Crash"Brace, brace!" The captain's voice was tense, crackling through the plane's intercom, and the alarm went off. There were cries of dismay from the passengers as the flight attendants hurried to their seats, after checking everyone's seat-belts. The plane shuddered violently, throwing people around in their seats. Skye braced herself against the seat in front of her, eyes wide with fear. The captain was speaking again, but Skye wasn't listening. They were going to crash.Turning to look out the window, Skye saw the ocean rushing towards them, its dark, glittering surface reflecting the stars.

Her brain refused to process any information, and she stared dumbly out the window.The plane jerked again, shaking so much that Skye thought it
Haikus from OblivionWhat will remain of me? On the altar of death where I lost everything, cold doesn't affect me anymore -My cigarette dies firstQue restera-t-il de moi ?Sur l'autel de la mort où j'ai tout perdu, le froid ne m'atteint plus -Ma cigarette meurt la premièreDressed in blackUnder the dew I stare at the sky filled with birdsWhere my husband is flyingHabillée de noirJe contemple sous la rosée le ciel rempli d'oiseauxLà où mon mari vole Desire to return to oblivion -Near the river, the white sound of snow dispels these wicked thoughtsAnd my life takes overEnvies de retour à l'oubli -Près du fleuve, le bruit blanc de la neige chasse ces vilaines penséesEt ma vie reprend son cours
