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

I took out my brand new army boots,
And shuddered with a shiver.
How long ago
Had that message been delivered?
We were young but we became old.
We knew he wasn't coming back,
Without being told.
Mom wasn't the same anymore,
And my brothers turned bleak.
But when I walk out of this door,
It isn't revenge I seek.
I put on my new army boots,
And promised myself I'd be back.
Eventually I returned,
But my world was pitch black.

I could face it if I could,
I would defeat it. I should.
But how can I when the shadows cloud me?
When will I be released from this worry?
No one can save me now.
No one knows how.
I am all alone.

Now, next person do this line!

Never will I submit
on a throne or on a spit.
On the streets being hit
Such things can't discourage me a bit.

and time will show
what have you done
you'll have to choose
the sword or the gun
you'll have to choose
pastor or nun
you might meet your wife
you might meet your son
but when that day comes
you'll never ever see the sun.
and when they put noose around your neck
you'll want to hide, you'll want to run
and when you fall from deck
you might break your neck
if not you poor bast ard
you'll strangle to death
your tongue will come out
your neck will be streched
on your tombstone
these words will be etched

Here lies the man.
The man that ruined my life.
The man that tore the tears out of my eyes.
The man that didn't care if I cried.
The man that thought my pain was funny.
The man that didn't care for money.
The man that only needed to see pain.
The man who I would've liked to maim.
The man who needed to go away.
The man that would hurt me with what he would say.
The man that, at night, would make me turn and toss.
The man that when I think of him...
I feel a loss.

I'm being pretty angst now.

I wonder will it ever stop?
I've been whirling past mountains
through the earth through fire through smoke
and then out the otherside
past the cows and sheep and pigs
through hell and out, through the sun and back
and then finally, i land on my feet
on the lovely planet of jupiter
so i died by inhalation
of poisonous smokey things, and also
the fact that i was sqaushed

no next line...? okay....

and as I looked into the depths of the screen,
my eyes widenend and I stifled a scream,
because in front of my face, black words on a white page,
THERE WAS NO NEW LINE
so I went off and raged.

But What Can I Do It Was My Fate,

And It Wasn't So Great.

But All I Could Do Was To Wait

And that request, to buy her a cocktail dress?
Oh, don't get me started!
I'll buy it, and I'll hope it fits.
But I ain't gonna pay for.it.
No, if she wants one, even if she begs me like a bunny,
I ain't gonna spend any of my money!
No matter how many puppy eyes,
I ain't gonna lie.
I am not buying her that dress!
Well, I would if it cost less.
NO! Don't mention it once more!
I'll lose it, for sure!

The fire burns in her eyes,
A passion that has yet to die
From our resounding argument.
Maybe the next time around
I'll just use acid on her instead.

So much guilt

So much guilt,
Her face flashes before my eyes.
Oh God, what have I done!?

Blood puddles under a still form,
Flaxen hair frames a serene face.
In death, she found peace.

A melody in the silence

A melody in the silence,
Of coldness and despair,
A constant shift of power
And the silent noise in pair.

An instrument of darkness
And an instrument of pain,
Conduct the silent symphony
In the silent, quiet rain.

Lurking in the cold white light
