I've been reading The Discovery of Poetry by francis mayes and it's helping me develop my techniques...

As well as I had a little help from a friend on the topic...a boy...friend? ^_^



Starry Aubade

i bid to you an aubade of truth,
of who, it is that my heart belongs 2,
you know as well as i
you have another gal and i another guy

however i, unlike many, notice when
the stars don't shine as brightly
and though far I may be,
of all their troubles, i long 2 set them free

now if it means that you light her world,
i'll trudge along with you through the dark

and if it means that i be a lonely girl,
i hope she brightens your tomorrow before 2day starts

AUBADE is not in my dictionary.
This is a lovely write however, and very real.
I am ashamed to ask, but Frances Mayes rings such a bell with me. What did she do? Who is she?
(And what does aubade mean?) I'm so ignorant!
