"Nothing Gold Can Stay" Robert Frost

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

"I thought that I heard you laughing. I thought that I heard you sing.  I think I thought I saw you try.  But that was just a dream. That’s me in the corner, that’s me in the spotlight: losing my religion.  Trying to keep up with you and I don’t know if I can do it.” -R.E.M

"Years go by; will I still be waiting for somebody else to understand? Years go by if I’m stripped of my beauty and the orange clouds raining in me head.  Years go by; will I choke on my tears till finally there is nothing left? One more casualty you know we’re too easy, easy, easy…"  -Tori Amos

"So what does it matter now; I was swimming in the hate now I crawl on the ground.  And everything I never liked about you, is kind of seeping into me.  I try to laugh about it now but isn’t it funny how everything works out? I guess the jokes on me, she said -Nine Inch Nails

"Dearest, I feel certain that I am going mad again. I feel we can’t go through another of those terrible times. And I shan’t recover this time. I begin to hear voices, and I can’t concentrate. So I am doing what seems the best thing to do. You have given me the greatest possible happiness. You have been in every way all that anyone could be. I don’t think two people could have been happier ‘til this terrible disease came. I can’t fight any longer. I know that I am spoiling your life, that without me you could work. And you will I know. You see I can’t even write this properly. I can’t read. What I want to say is I owe all the happiness of my life to you. You have been entirely patient with me and incredibly good. I want to say that—everybody knows it. If anybody could have saved me it would have been you. Everything has gone from me but the certainty of your goodness. I can’t go on spoiling your life any longer. I don’t think two people could have been happier than we have been. V”

"Moving lips to breathe her name; I opened up my eyes and found myself alone above a raging sea that stole the only girl I loved: and drowned her deep inside of me.  You  soft and only. You lost and lonely. You Just like heaven” -The Cure
