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

A sickening smell
That stench of hell:
Not sulfur, brimstone,
But smells unknown.
That smell of fear
Will hurt your ears.

I somersault into the waves

I somersault into the waves
Hoping for sweet embrace
Too early as the peak caves
And slaps me hard on my face.

The archetype of a human

The archetype of human, was quite slow witted and dumb.
Luckily, what filled his rumen, was Nature's equilibrium.

The combo of malts, yeast, waters and hops, made everyone feel quite on the top. This utopia had noneed for cops, until one day someone had dropped!

In humanity's curiosity, one thing came to be. Learning why was all that mattered to he.

What a sausagefest..

What a sausagefest
All LAN parties are the same
At least I kick ass.

I always lied to you.

I always lied to you
And never felt bad
You kept coming back
And that made me so mad.
I never gave you a reason to love me
I always hated that you stayed
I wanted you to go
So I could be alone

I hurt you too much
The last time around
When I realized I loved you
And you couldn't forgive me
Because I broke your heart too many times before
You couldn't seem to find it in you
To let someone in
So I saw you shut your heart down
And store all emotions beneath the skin.
So this is a goodbye
To all of my family and friends
I just want all of this to end.



Yeah this sucks butt. XD

The rain poured down

The rain poured down
Always the same direction
Never returning to the sky
In the same form.
Evoporation, just a slow death
Torn apart by the sun

The singular, final journey
Of a raindrop
Ends in a pitiful pool

A Thousand million drops
race for the earth
Instead trophies, the victorious
win only eternal slumber

The discarded bodies of the drops
form puddles of death
Children laugh and stomp
in the graveyard of rain.

I'm gonna get Tao on ya'lls with this new line:

The uncut block

The uncut block
the uncrafted stone
a new hope
hope that something new
will bring back loss
the loss of a keystone

Try this...

Sorry for the double post... That was supposed to be 'will take away loss'

The distant sea of green
I thought I saw was but
A summer field of grass,
Waving slow, waiting to be cut.

Just a note: The first First Line Digest is coming soon...

Summer's day is both short and long,
or so it seems as we tarry along.
The wind of the air is so crisp,
as a throw my dog's frisbee disc.

The parents grill the steaks,
as we wounder what rules to make.
for the game we are about to play,
will lead us into the end of day.

This actually seems okay to me. Hope you guys like it.

Is it worth fighting for

It is worth fighting for,
My country's honor is worth this war.
I don't care if I die today.
Hell, I'm not even getting paid.

You feed me the same line everytime
and yet I keep listening
convincing me that we are fine
a tear filled christening

How can I believe your lie
when I have no reason
I can never reach the high
of which you are teasing

You are a tremendous saint
and also a spitting demon
our relationship is only paint
my life the product of semen

The grot is expanding

You feed me the same line every time:
"Satisfaction guaranteed"
But when your life fell into haze,
I came to miss you, Billy Mays.

RIP Billy Mays.

It's a bloody business
