    I thought @Stormtrooper was the one posting most of those posts in the poetry thread, but I am surprised Baya was a larger culprit.

    SONNET 60

    Like as the waves make towards the pebbled shore,
    So do our minutes hasten to their end;
    Each changing place with that which goes before,
    In sequent toil all forwards do contend.
    Nativity, once in the main of light,
    Crawls to maturity, wherewith being crown'd,
    Crooked eclipses 'gainst his glory fight,
    And Time that gave doth now his gift confound.
    Time doth transfix the flourish set on youth
    And delves the parallels in beauty's brow,
    Feeds on the rarities of nature's truth,
    And nothing stands but for his scythe to mow:
    And yet to times in hope my verse shall stand,
    Praising thy worth, despite his cruel hand.

    I like this sonnet, despite it being partly about god.

    I have eaten
    the plums
    that were in
    the icebox

    and which
    you were probably
    saving
    for breakfast

    Forgive me
    they were delicious
    so sweet
    and so cold

    Leonard Cohen "A thousand kisses deep"

    You came to me this morning
    And you handled me like meat
    You’d have to be a man to know
    How good that feels, how sweet
    My mirrored twin, my next of kin
    I’d know you in my sleep
    And who but you would take me in
    A thousand kisses deep

    I loved you when you opened like a
    Lily to the heat
    You see I’m just another snowman
    Standing in the rain and sleet
    Who loved you with his frozen love
    His second hand physique
    With all he is, and all he was
    A thousand kisses deep

    I know you had to lie to me
    I know you had to cheat
    To pose all hot and hide behind
    The veils of shear deceit
    Our perfect porn aristocrat
    So elegant and cheap
    I’m old but I’m still into that
    A thousand kisses deep

    I’m good at love, I’m good at hate
    It's in between I freeze
    Been working out, but its too late
    It’s been to late for years
    But you look good, you really do
    They love you on the street
    If I could move I’d kneel for you
    A thousand kisses deep

    And I'm still working with the wine
    Still dancing cheek to cheek
    The band is playing Auld Lang Syne
    But the heart will not retreat
    I ran with Diz and I sang with Ray
    I never had their sweep
    But once or twice they let me play
    A thousand kisses deep

    The autumn moved across your skin
    Got something in my eye
    A light that doesn’t need to live
    And doesn’t need to die
    A riddle in the book of love
    Obscure and obsolete
    Until witnessed here in time and blood
    A thousand kisses deep

    I loved you when you opened
    Like a lily to the heat
    You see I'm just another snowman
    Standing in the rain and sleet
    Who loved you with his frozen love
    His second hand physique
    With all he is, and all he was
    A thousand kisses deep
    But you don’t need to hear me now
    And every word I speak
    It counts against me anyhow
    A thousand kisses deep
