All About Paris

Updated on October 22, 2010

All About Paris

Not Paris smirking at defeated ships while they sailed away,

But Paris sleeping as night spilled open, ending Troy’s final Day.

Not Paris ridiculed by love, before slain by Romeo,

But faithful Paris at her tomb, where his final breath he did let go.

Not Paris gazing eastward while hope escaped at Dunkirk,

But Paris marching west… ending with each step the Devil’s work.

Like the sea patiently waiting for dark cover to caress the lonely shore,

Nothing is forsaken… wait for the moment, and then wait some more

Pathos is for poets, and would-be dreamers afraid to sleep,

Lose no battle before defeated, give no quarter, do not retreat.

      Good idea not add Paris Hilton, you wouldn't want to trash it up. ha ha I know you are just kidding. That's what I like about you, your great humor, especially in the forums. And I think the way you wrote it is just fine!

      Nicely written and well versed. One area I found might need editing. "Like the sea patiently waiting for dark cover to caress the lonely shore, (this sttod out from the flow of the poem) perhaps "like the sea waiting for dark to caress the lonley shore," A nice read though, thanks.
