what is true, what is a lie?
is there really a heaven in the sky?
what if heaven is a lie?
we will know the truth
the time we die
and then we will see
if there is nothing
or a heaven and a hell.
well, may i suggest,
that it does not matter
that life is maybe a test
to see who will get
into heaven or hell
if they exist...
i do not want to shatter
your view and belief.
but what if they are not real
and we insist
that they are real.
can we not all coexist
does it matter
if heaven and hell
do or do not exist?
maybe the religions
are all together
a fragment of
a greater trhuth
or they they are neither
true nor a lie...
so, do not cry,
when someone dies.
who knows, maybe we
can meet them and see
our beloved ones again
or we reincarnate.
who knows the truth...

I like villanelles, don't you?

Death is the only touch that's true,
Don't listen to her gleaming eyes
Red lips will always fade to blue.

The high and low, the middle too,
Ignore the sound of their own cries.
Death is the only touch that's true.

Measuring their bloody words to chew,
Spitting them through weary lives.
But red lips will always fade to blue.

They try to hide (as cowards do),
Building their castles scraping high,
But Death is the only touch that's true.

It comes to them, no better than you,
Buries them under dirt and sky--
Red lips will always fade to blue.

The bards will still sing as if they knew,
That until still tongues forever lie.
Death is the only touch that's true,
And Red lips will always fade to blue.

So never again
My eyes shall sparkle brightly
Truly, I'm alone

Dovakiin must you act like a spriggan
All spry and a wigglin'
How dare you go about
And do nothing but shout
What a fool you are
To be be a master of guitar
Or as we call it the lute
Such an unreliable boot
When they cat even fly
Like a vampire that is so spry
Like a Fus Ro Da to the soul
Or a butterfly that is as cold as the south pole
We must now drink the nigh away through these flagons
To be ready to fight some evil dragons

There is my nerdy amateur poem based on Skyrim hope you like it,

@Devoidless: May I get a ruling on the syllable count for the word "every"? This is one of the many English words that have dropped syllables--also known as syncope.

Other examples are "favorite"(pronounced fave-writ as opposed to fave-o-writ) and "interest" (in-trest as opposed to in-ter-est). I wasn't sure because after checking a few dictionary entries, they all listed "every" as two syllables (ev-ree as opposed to ev-e-ree). Thanks for your time.

it is a blue elephant.
no one can say what he must do.
even with a heavy hand.

jumping and running back and forth.
he likes it.
and he does it every time.

and when the day is over, the fun is over too.
He lies down with sighs and says:
I go to sleep it's bedtime for me.

ordt the next morning he woke up and everyone is gone.
He considered this not fine and went searching but everyone was away what a bad luck.

but when he woke wast and everyone was there.
that he found it fine.
He then went to his mother are cute anyway.

                                                       THE END
