Nothing is forever

Nothing is forever!
Not the sun, it'll burn out;
Not the stars, they'll shine out.
The moon will be lost,
Everything has a cost.
Love will be loss,
Life will be death.
Insults, putdowns, letdowns of every kind;
Every single grudge will be left behind.
All will be dust,
So quarrel if you must.
All will disappear,
Why not love while we're here?
Nothing is forever,
Everything is now, here!

Dorothy Parker Poems

Why Live?

Razors pain you;
Rivers are damp;
Acid stains you;
And drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren't lawful;
Nooses give;
Gas smells awful;
You might as well live.


**************************************************

Unfortunate Coincidence

By the time you swear you're his,
Shivering and sighing,
And he vows his passion is
Infinite, undying -
Lady, make a note of this:
One of you is lying.


**************************************************

Symptom Recital

I do not like my state of mind;
I'm bitter, querulous, unkind.
I hate my legs, I hate my hands,
I do not yearn for lovelier lands.
I dread the dawn's recurrent light;
I hate to go to bed at night.
I snoot at simple, earnest folk.
I cannot take the gentlest joke.
I find no peace in paint or type.
My world is but a lot of tripe.
I'm disillusioned, empty-breasted.
For what I think, I'd be arrested.
I am not sick, I am not well.
My quondam dreams are shot to hell.
My soul is crushed, my spirit sore;
I do not like me any more.
I cavil, quarrel, grumble, grouse.
I ponder on the narrow house.
I shudder at the thought of men....
I'm due to fall in love again.

Remember the best but don't forget the worst!

When you watch as many movies as I do, you're bound to stumble upon some absolute stinkers.

Ergo, the list of the worst movies(1/10) I've seen:

Watchmen (2009)
Push (2009)

Meet the Spartans (2008)
Shoot 'em up (2007)
Ultraviolet (2006)
