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

It's a bloody business!
Signing papers, nothing more.
It's a bloody business!
There's nothing to abhor.
It's a bloody business!
People do it every day.
It's a bloody business!
We have to live some kind of way.
It's just a bloody business.
Said the spider to the fly.
It's a bloody business,
where good men go to die.

^ Too cliche, especially the end. Also, the tone is off and the pacing is awful. I don't like writing ones from Parsat's lines; I don't feel I'm doing them justice. Oh well, practice makes perfect.

I thought these days would last forever.

I thought these days would last forever,
The days of plenty and living more.
Endlessly they passes me by,
All the while I die inside.

living in endless suspense
I search for simple sustinence
i am dying inside
with nowhere else to hide
I thought you loved me
But now i can see

You tricked me so well
And watched as i fell
You deserve a prize
for your perfect lies

Next line:
What you see is not me - I have died

wowza nice job Aknerd!


Thanks, but it's all lies. The internet is my bff.

What you see is not me - I have died
I do not notice those who cried
Or who kept dry with pride
Or my now-never-bride
Or mom at my side.
To death I ride
My life denied
Wish I'd
tried.

But I never did.

But I never did;
Express the love I had for you
Tell you what you were to me
Explain that you were my life;
My love
My soul
And now I never will.

New line:
It is myself.

It is myself
I see in the mirror
A person full of glee
A person that is carefree

Sky is the limit,
Danger is just a title
To confuse the worrysome

Myself I see in the mirror.

Hmm, I seriously have no frickin Idea. lol.

Staring into the Night
I see
How amazing dark can be.

Stars are glistening
People asleep
Looking into the water
You can't tell how deep

All is quiet
You are alone
To ponder the thoughts
Of places unknown

Streaks of soft light begin to show
Light clouds caress the sky
The night begins to fade, although
You will see such beauty when the day says good bye.



eh, I rushed it.... Oh wellz.

Passing the time

Passing the time
I feel like a mime
I lost my voice
I had no choice

I spoke a word
But no one heard
I tried to shout
But nothing came out

I try to scream
Is it all a dream?
I'm trapped in this prison
No speech, no vision

I am left alone
Another unknown
I will die in peace
Death, is my release.

Lay a flower
Upon your grave
Symbol of life
It slowly fades
Just as you
Faded from life

The ticking of the clock
Resounds deep with in my soul
A chain that I'm unable to unlock
My youth is taken as toll

The ticking of the clock
He pulls on the lock
Touch the darkness here
Feel his growing fear

See the blackend walls
See the drop as it falls
See it run through the cracks
And leave everlasting tracks

save him

The river flows
But only in memories
Now a dry dead river bed
The river must have moved
On with its life
I wonder what it's doing now
Or if the river remembers me
Maybe I shouldn't have peed in it
Every day.

hehehhehe...
