I wanted to grow old with you:
turn grey and fade away, subdued.
To walk with you through all the years
and face, as one, our darkest fears.
We'd burn too brightly for this Earth
and share in sorrow and in mirth;
to each the other's soul would bare
and twice the love, at once, declare.
For each would know the other's mind
and there a perfect solace find;
we would be two, though as one known
discrete though merged & mingled grown.
I wanted to grow old, it's true:
turn grey and fade to dust with you.

I want to upload some of my writings/poems.  Can't figure it out.  What format do I need to save my poems in?  I don't mean to trouble you but I could use some help if you have the time.  I wish DA had a HELP menu!

I'm not sure how much I can help!  I choose 'Submit' > 'Submit Art', click on 'Enter text' and then type or paste my writing in - I've never tried uploading my files.

There are probably instructions somewhere here: help.deviantart.com/ but I can't find them at the moment!

This poem touches home for me.   And I wonder what grief urged these words from the depths of your soul.  But I will never ask.

Men are easy to read and figure out, we are too smart and think too much over complicating things, you can get him back if you really have feelings for him and without groveling or showing weakness, let him see you for who you really are, and not how you want to be seen, he will come back and love you for you if he is honest Heart

If I said I was near tears, I would be lying, but it defiantly is a beautiful piece of work. The rhythm and words give such meaning, and I was moved dearly by this poem. Wonderful work, keep it up! And Congrats on the DD. ;D

It really is amazing. It made me feel sad, yet a twinkle of hope shone brightly throughout this poem. That's what poems do though, they make you feel like you've never felt before. Truly beautiful! :'D

This is so beautiful. And yet sad. "I wanted" implies that it's in the past. It might be some of the best poems I've read in a while. (It doesn't hurt that it completely reminded me of Amy and Rory from Doctor Who.) Congratulations!
