I begged him to stay. Try to remember what we had at the beginning.

He was charismatic, magnetic, electric and everybody knew it. When he walked in every woman's head turned, everyone stood up to talk to him. He was like this hybrid, this mix of a man who couldn't contain himself. I always got the sense that he became torn between being a good person and missing out on all of the opportunities that life could offer a man as magnificent as him.

And in that way I understood him and I loved him. I loved him, I loved him, I loved him.

And I still love him. I love him." I Am Afraid You say that you love the rain,
But you stretch out your umbrella,
When it rains.
You say that you love the sun,
But you find a shade,
When it shines.
You said that you love the wind,
But you close all your windows,
When it blows.
That is why I'm afraid,
That you will say the same.
To me too. Lana Del Rey- National Anthem [Intro: Lana Del Rey]
Money is the anthem of success
So before we go out, what's your address
[Verse 1]
I'm your National Anthem
God, you're so handsome
Take me to the Hamptons
Bugatti Veyron
He loves to romance them
Reckless abandon
Holding me for ransom
Upper echelon
He says to be cool but I don't know how yet
Wind in my hair
Hand on the back of my neck
I said, can we party later on
He said yes, yes, yes
[Verse 2]
Money is the reason we exist
Everybody knows it, it's a fact
Kiss, kiss
I sing the National Anthem
While I'm standing over your body
Hold you like a python
And you can't keep your hands off me
Or your pants on
See what you've done to me
Give me Chevron
He said to be cool but I'm already coolest
I said to get real, don't you know who you're dealing with
Um, do you think you'll buy me lots of diamonds Lana Del Rey Birth name: Elizabeth Woolridge Grant Imagery Alliteration "That is why I'm afraid,
That you will say the same." National Anthem Poetry Midterm by Amy Vele Qyazzirah Syeikh Ariffin Born: January 10th, 1984 Other Popular Poems:
Black Locks,
Light After Darkness,
and Roses of Medina. Qyazzirah Syeikh Ariffin [Verse 3]
It's a love story for the new age
For the six page
We're on a quick, sick rampage
Wining and dining
Drinking and driving
Excessive buying
Overdose and dying
On our drugs and our love
And our dreams and our rage
Blurring the lines between real and the fake
Dark and lonely
I need somebody to hold me
We will do very well
I can tell, I can tell
Keep my safe in his bell tower, hotel
Money is the anthem of success
So put on mascara, and your party dress
I'm your National Anthem
Boy, put your hands up
Give me a standing ovation
Boy, you have landed
Babe, in the land of
Sweetness and Danger
Queen of Saigon
[Outro x3]
Money is the anthem
God, you're so handsome
Money is the anthem

Sparkle Jump Rope Queen Born June 21, 1986 (age 26) In: New York City Genre: indie pop, alternative, chamber pop, sadcore Singles: Video Games and Born To Die Speaker: The speaker of the poem is Qyazzirah.
He writes about how it he's afraid he will be forgotten by his lover and gives examples before the last sentence.

Tone: The tone of the poem is sad and almost disappointing because he knows that the same will happen to him, just as everything else has happened. Tension: As the poem progresses, the reader can automatically tell what Qyazzirah is trying to prove and once you read the ending, you realize how realistic it is. Word choice: The vocabulary he chooses isn't sophisticated but the way he puts them in the poem makes them flow nicely. Although Qyazzirah does not use descriptive language in his poem, you can still picture his lover closing the window, sitting in shade, and falling out of love with him. Repetition: At the start of the line, he says "You say" and then the following sentence begins with "But you" in order to give the reader an idea of what his poem is about. Metaphor Alliteration: none Metaphors:
