This is a bit of a forum game, but at the same time it has the capacity to result in a bit of poetry, so it goes here. I'm going to supply a line of poetry, and the following poster is to create a poem using the line I gave as their first. Along with their poem, they supply a line for the next person to write poetry on. No restrictions on the type of line or poetry; just keep the line open ended.

Here's the first line:

A mountain pokes out awkward in the mist

In the evening sky
Lies the unknown
A mystery to me
I traded sunset baseball
A yellow ball bouncing
in the could de sac
For closing duties
A vacuum and a mop

The evening sky
Must be meant for others
For the young, old, and homeless
I wonder if they still play
Does the yellow ball still bounce
Or was it thown away with my memories

Forever Falling
Overcome by chaos
Realizing a rocky landing

Even dieing

Venues of greatness; unreached
Ever so many things to do
Realizing the end has come

a solemn wish
is all i have
i've lost my will
As I have my life

I wish it could
Have been different
I wish we loved
Like Bonnie and Clyde

We only lasted
Like the sun
each day
We rose and we fell

And that is our world

Remind me of memory,
A happier time.
Of peace and friendship,
And our love combined.

When our hearts were free,
Minds were clear.
Thats my memory,
My sweet, sweet dear.


As the tide rose

As the tide rose
It reminded me of days ago
Where we frequently frolicked
Along these very sands
Now you're so very distant
In middle America
Far from the churning waters
Of the summer with me
Just like a buried beachgoer
The tides wash over my trapped head
And the memories mingled with the amber sand
I hope you know
You leave a golden glow.

Jeebus. I suck at poetry. But...

^^ You need to post a new first line.

Inside a moving palace
Turrets crumbling under heavy memories
The door boarded shut
Windows covered with tinfoil
Here I wait

Hmm this one turned out pretty bad.

Right lane must turn right
you in a car late at night
will you be smart
and do the right thing

or chance for a ticket
is it worth it
if you want to go right ahead
dont ask me i could be dead


Is that a UFO

Is that a UFO,
Flying by my eyes?
Or is it ghost,
Full of lifeless lies?

Ectoplasmic fury from the stars,
Or superstitious abduction waiting to start.
Lifeless creatures from the void,
Roaming and killing without a heart.

Or is it the government, tricking us all,
Using the rumors to lie in secret.
We all know all that they're doing,
But are too blind to see it.

Next line: Hello, cruel world,

You need a semicolon.

Was that your poem?

When I wake up in the morning
The bright sun wishes me good-morning
The song of a lark fills my ears
The breeze creates the music of spheres


In my life


In addition, the last line is referring to wind chimes.

Here's my response.

In my life,
there is a slug,
a nasty dark spot,
a disturbing bug.

Get away from my life,
the darkness hasn't gone,
I must get it away,
before dawn.

Here I am,
I am dark,
My life would be better,
but then there was a spark.

A light is shining,
a new hope,
Be gone now darkness,
be gone.

When I was a kid
My poems all sucked
Now I'm a man, still
No change in luck

Ha. I get it.
I feel so proud.
I wear my smile smugly.
I walk taller than before.
I cant be defeated.
I rock.

Ugh bad one.
