    If you are a poet and you know it, clap your hand to your heart and sigh
    Sigh for the beauty and the pain and the suffering and the endless monotony of life
    Sigh for glint of sunlight on golden hair, or the smell of fresh baked bread,
    or the scream of newborn child.

    Clap your hand to your head and dig in through your skull
    pierce those pesky thoughts of bills and loss with the tips of your fingers,
    till you can no longer hear the squelching, and the rivulets of blood running down your arms drip like rain
    slow, quiet rain, like on a fresh, Spring afternoon.

    :eek:
    Er, sorry, that got a bit away from me at the end there - I've been listening to Welcome to Nightvale a lot recently.

    You are f***ing awesome!

    I have played this one a number of times already on other fora (because it tends to throw people off) and while there aren't many responses over here yet I can tell you that you are the first ever to come up with a way to finish it. Everybody is looking for that one word that will conclude it, but you took the sentence and made it your own.

    I like your text but the fact you finished it period, bravo!

    Hello new friend, my name is Fred
    the words you hear are in my head.
    I say, I said my name is Fred,
    and I've been... very naughty.

    Nice idea. Here's a poem I wrote some years ago:

    Silent Embrace

    Down settles the sun into another enigmatic night
    Soft colors eroding in bewildering flight
    Light banished in sorrow
    Yet soft shadows remain
    Moon hovering uncertain
    Whether to wax or to wane
    My heart is the sunset, my dilemma the moon
    My soul is the night sky, with fond memories of noon
    Your love is the sunshine, softly kissing the dawn
    Gently stroking the flowers, then soft and meekly withdrawn

    Who guards the daystar when the long day is done?
    And who comforts the nighttime when he longs for the sun?

    Down trickles a tear from my waking eye
    Sleep stealing away beneath the dark sunless sky
    Stars twinkle in glory
    And the moon gives her light
    Still I weep for the sun
    But not from childish fright
    I long to caress her like a sorrowing fawn
    Give her comfort and guide her to the faraway dawn
    Then sleep overtakes me in the cool restless night
    No way to embrace her, no dragons to fight

    Down settles my soul into a dreamer's peace
    Love muffled and secret now finding release
    God walks in the nighttime
    Meets us deep in our dreams
    Dries up our tears
    And our sorrows redeems
    Here in this dream world, strange things can be done
    Daytime and night can be merged into one
    Love held in the heart can be painful and cold
    Love entrusted to God is a secret well told

    Up rises my prayer to the God-filled sky
    Comfort my beloved with the tears that I cry
    You who see her wherever she lay her sweet head
    Fill her heart with the comfort of words left unsaid
    Let her feel the embrace of your infinite love
    Let her know by its depth that it comes from above
    Yet in the midst of the sacred embrace that you send
    May she feel just a trace of the love of a friend
    May she know she is loved by a heart like her own
    Mortal and fragile, and beating alone

    Down falls a greeting from the mystic night
    Hearts beating together, removed from all sight
    Tender wishes transported by Heaven's soft grace
    Lover, love, and beloved in silent embrace

    I just received my black phone
    The screen is not yellow so I am not blue.
    Don't be green, I am sure your time will come too.

    Is this bliss or is it just a kiss?
    Am I blind? I feel foolish inside.
    Am I awake or simply dreaming?
    It is you who's always gleaming.

    Don't believe in fate.
    There's no such thing.
    It's never too late.
    Was this nothing but a fling?

    Your presence awakens me.
    With you I'm alive.
    You're my everything.
    Without you I'd never thrive.

    With you I'm whole.


    A lame attempt. I feel it's missing something.

    now my work day is done
    time for me to have some fun
    i've tried verse haiku and rhyme
    time to try another line.

    One thing for you
    Please from me
    Only time will tell
    Tick tock tick tock
    Hear the time go
    Everyone looks for it
    But very few show
    Eventually I'll have one
    So you will too
    Today or tomorrow if not I'll be blue:(

    I like the tick tock part a lot for some reason.

    Perhaps because of this:

    instead of with you I'm whole
    try
    without you I'm half
    and with you I'm whole
    forever together
    is my only goal


    just a thought
