Fave Poem of the Day

I believe poetry can happen to anyone, anytime and any day. Was reading up on the history of punk rock and came upon this intimate eulogy written by Sid Vicious to Nancy Spungen. It's simple, it's beautiful and in my eyes, it has all the spirit of great poetry.


You were my little baby girl and I knew all your fears.
Such joy to hold you in my arms, and kiss away your tears.
But now you're gone there's only pain and nothing I can do.
And I don't want to live this life, if I can't live for you.

Sid Vicious............Jan 1979
