    Thanks kimback for the inspiration to do this with your last topic.... Simple rules: Every two lines have to rhyme, the next two lines have to rhyme as well but be different from the first lines. Be creative and make it fun!  I'll start with the first two lines to give it a sense of structure.

    Beneath the starry canopy lay endless stretch of shore,
    Some distant, shrouded memory- a place I'd seen before,

      Your face was so familiar yet seemingly so close,
      You placed your hand upon my breast, your loving, lethal dose.

        Am I under arrested?
                 Or are you putting me to the test,
                 Your eyes spear through my soul,,
                 And made my trembling lips,
                 Just.......................unfold.

      Many types of cancer produce large amounts of EGFR. So drugs are being developed to target these receptors, in the hope that this might slow their growth.

    Basking in all the ecstacy, she trembles at the brush
    Like lovers in a fantasy, we embrace and feel the rush,

    But just like every fated love, the ending isn't bright,
    Cupid's arrow can't save their love for he (like always) leaves in the night.

      Every dark night is followed by a bright sunny day. So, patience and attention is required and things will be fruitful in near future.

    Wherein here lies the tragedy: lovers lost in world's apart,
    Yet passion spans both realities and reunites them soul and heart

    While longing's wistful memory,
    and thoughts of things not meant to be

    forever in a stream of love, longing, and the star speckled sky.

    Crossing o'er heaven's canopy to seek his angel's face,
    Falling through earthly gravity, he lives again for her embrace,

    She’s here, not here, just out of reach, separated by a thought
    So real but so intangible – almost a dimension forgot

    Forever etched yet nebulous, as written by a ghost
    Her memory fades, diaphanous, dissolving, melting... lost

    but found again on the brow of my garden's memory
    dreaming in sepia, among roses and rosemary

    Are they veils of make believe that hide her thoughts from mine
    Or memory’s failing, flowing stream that leaves just naught behind?

    His senses roused to moments fair, he breathes in mem'ries deep
    Her dusky scent on dusk's cool air enticing him toward sleep

    With thoughts brighter and dreamier than the setting sun.

    Running though the park's rustling leaves in dusk light,
    love and rejoice keep his warm big heart bright.

    A world apart, she's restless, listening
    Cruel dagger drops on hot cheeks glistening

    He's trapped in a hell yelling for her so,
    running quicker now only defense is a quiver and bow.

    Will the two worlds collide at all or ever more stay thus
    On parallel paths with just no hope of e’er uniting us?

    But hope isn't given up easy even in the cold ice,
    the dream can be achieved if you don't fear the price.

    Good question, that! What lovers wouldn't give
    To reunite in death ...or e'er apart to live?

    Each day brings the same , or does it just seem that way ,for if we look very closely , closer still ,
    we begin to see
    That the nothing ever remains the same

    Transfixed by all her pleasantries, this angel, goddess, queen,
    Affixed in shrouded mystery, is this phantom, lover's scene,

    Mysterious shrouds that do divide one world from the next
    One of real longing and the other just a jest?

    Whose ache is lie, whose frailty?
    This mystery cloaks all reality

    Leta Sposted 7 years ago

    For ache to end here in the desert; amid naked trees and scarred
        rough sand
    For ache to live beyond the river, this thirst, this quench--
        this rich-willed land

    Frailty?  Thy name is hope; thy dream woman, and mystery beyond
       that black dust of reality shared, stretch; yea, to the stars--
       to the heart of night, a sliver of hand, the feel of fright

    The ache     is to lie--drenched, sweet     and dream of oceans.

    Oh begone ache, begone! Begone and let me drown!
    Can't you see that my dreams have all but flown?

    Leta Sposted 7 years ago

    Fly; verily, swiftly   away, escape   as the wings of a sparrow 
        beat against the pavement, dying.

    And when he,  looking up sees   naught but the naked eyes of   
        buildings swirling, lying,

        Surely goodness and love shall follow all my days   dream me

    Anew, as in the arms of a lover newly waking   before that 
        long night's fresh due.

    Alas, i cannot fathom the paradox, the divide

  38. Shalini Kagal profile image79
    Shalini Kagalposted 7 years ago

    Are these fixed, dividing lines just in the mind?
    Or are just they manmade walls that us do bind?

    great walls of words that leave us asunder

    NO,let us united, and converge, and figure out what make this

    And so, we will have to drink the separting vastness

    We must abridge the ridge that creates this abyssness

    Darknlovely3436posted 7 years ago

    Oh! My  let stop the madness!!!,
    take a step, away from that vast abyssness
    look around, can you see, life is worth living,
    Smell, the air, feel the sun, against your face,
    We all know that life isn't...........fair!

    Two lovers' hearts ache longingly, across the vast abyss
    The wind, their only ally, wafts with echoes of a kiss

    a kiss that smells of summertime and full moon
    but sadly, still only echoes that end so soon

    but the lovers they smile, so sweetly as his lip gentle pull away
    from each other lips, and they eyes glue, on to each other, for a while,as the thunder roar in the sky;

    Like a favorite book, in our hearts we keep forever near
