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

Because we have to say goodbye,
our paths split.
never talking again,
going our own ways.
forever parting,
goodbye.

You have the power

You have the power
To change your life
To correct your mistakes

You have the power
To help others
To do some good

Fire it up,
Drive away,
On your shiny new motorbike,
That you got today.

Its a present,
From your Mam and Dad,
They knew this present,
Would make you GLAD!!!

Sitting by myself on a winy day,
i think about the things i've done,
how i messed up the good things,
but now my chances are gone.

I can't set things right,
i've got nothing left in here,
So the best thing for me to do,
is just to dissapear.

Well i'm saying goodbye,
to everything and everyone,
i'm making an end at me,
now my worries are finally gone.


New opening line: When i woke up and i saw myself

When i woke up and i saw myself
i was a monster
could see how other people could see me
i didnt like it
so i turned over a new leaf
i saw myself normal

The moon shines brightly
Down on the lonely fields
But there is no more motion
Only blood and broken shields

We thought it was so brave
To set off and fight to death
but now we moan in agony
and cherish our last breath

We wish we could go back now
wish we could all be one
but we'll never see those sacred fields
bathed in joy and sun

Our time grows near as we lie here
Dying in the night
Oh we will always regret forever
Our insatiable need to fight.

Bring it back I wasn't done

Bring it back, I wasn't done.
Bring it back, I need some more fun.
How rude of you to take away
The only think I had with which to play.

What is that you're saying my friend?
All good things must come to an end?
Not this, not this I tell you.
By spiting me here you have unleashed a deluge.

Come now, come one come all.
Come everyone here, we'll have a ball.
I'm going to get it back, you hear?
I'm going to get it back.

Decided to just go with the first thing that came to my head, to everyone's discomfort, including my own. I'm not a big fan of end-rhymes myself, I can't be sure how they got in there.

A new day shines brightly
As the sun rises on the horizon
Droplets of dew sparkle on the grass
The morning breeze sings in the crisp dawn
Ah to witness the breathtaking beauty of a
New Day.

Time and again
Waiting for when
I'll feel fine again
This cycle, this spin
Only sadness within
Another turn I begin
Just waiting, again
For a return of a grin
For once, to win

That was absolutely horrible. Ugh...

Do geese see god?
As they climb into
The vaulted heavens

Do geese meet god?
As they wheel about
The clouds above

Do geese touch god?
As they soar through
The azure skies

Frozen like a sculpture
Face wreathed in agony
White and cold
Dusty and alone
Dead

lol


this is spam... but i guess you already knew that..

Ot:

Help me,
that's what i want
i want to say it
but i can't

Nobody wants to
i did to much wrong
can't do it over
i did it for too long

I want help
but i can't ask for it
i would be so happy
with just a little bit

I guess it's too late
My future looks bad
and that's where it started
i wanted to be dead.

Eventually i chose for the dead
i did my best
but when it ended
i could finally rest.



Everytime i look at you is the next opening sentence!
