    Hey, john boy thanks for not divulging my secret. :D:D:wink: Hehehe!

    This poem is just from my imagination and it never happened to me. Can you imagine without a partner in a ballroom, with people looking at you? :smile: I put a bit of humor in this poem. Hope you enjoy it.


    Masquerade Ball


    Alone in the corner of the ballroom
    With people in different costumes
    Waltzing along with their partners holding their tails
    And smiles were in style.

    It was one lovely evening to remember
    Though I'm still missing a partner
    I figure out, I may have cinderella syndrome
    Here by myself, in cat costume.

    Wearing white fake mink
    Sporting fluffy tail and fluffy ears
    I was holding a black velvet purse
    Decorated with black sequins.

    Still waiting for my prince
    I wonder what he's up to?
    Will he ever show up?
    Soon it will be twelve o'clock.

    M.P.L. (2006) aka swany

    Poem for the Rose

    In this path there might be
    No time to pick the rose
    That once was seen in haste
    While passing without rest.
    You thought that deed could wait
    So you fixed a backward look
    In a tranquil mood of resolute
    Before the season's wilting bait
    I shall come to pick you and rest.
    I shall sit then to look,
    Touch, feel your thorns,
    Maybe enjoy your gentler stings
    Maybe afford back a dream.
    [c2006]

    My Filipina

    So many years I was alone
    Until I met someone to call my own
    She was indeed an answer to prayer
    With beauty far beyond compare
    My Pineapple Princess/Miss Del Monte all wrapped in one
    Now the emptiness has gone
    The unmeasurable joy she brings into my life
    I'm so pleased that she is now my wife
    With no regrets, I thank God above
    For helping me find.....true love.

    Those Tears On My Pillow
    by:pretty_edem

    Pretending that I feel fine
    A smile covers despair
    Sadness is easily hidden
    No one would be aware

    I go off into a quiet place
    When I am feeling low
    There I shall cry for hours
    No one would ever know

    Its easy masking sorrow
    If I keep it out of sight
    Weeping tears in silence
    As I hug my pillow tight

    Only my pillow will know
    Tears I cried over you
    Heartache is never heard
    When hidden from view

    Those tears on my pillow
    Shall be shed silently
    Yearning goes unnoticed
    Its hurt you cannot see.
