If you are a published poet, an aspiring poet or have never tried to write a poem but at least enjoy poetry- then WE NEED YOU! Here's your chance to both express and explore your creative juices in a rhyme, a line and a verse.
This is a fun, collaborative activity where a little effort from each individual in the group goes a long way in making for an interesting, exciting read. Let's make it simple and fun.
The rules are simple, for each post write only two lines (verses) that rhyme. The person who writes the next post (it can be the same person) they also will write two lines that rhyme but they must make the next set of rhyming lines or verses different from that of the preceeding lines. I'll start to give it a sense of structure:
"There's a vast and endless universe that mirrors the divine, In your eyes are treasures beyond worth that mere words can't define."
"There's a vast and endless universe that mirrors the divine, In your eyes are treasures beyond worth that mere words can't define." But you always seem to only open your mouth to change feet.. So my dear, it's time, it's time that I press..... DELETE! Darkness has become an integral part of my life. The things you've done to hurt me, pricks me like a sharp knife. Go away! Never again I wish you to stay To forget all about you is the only thing I will ask now in every pray And if my words should leave you in doubt, don't let the door hit you on your way out. And as I leave at the dawn of the day I look not over my shoulder, nor yet rue the day. On the golden wings of time I move on Your memory only adds another shade of red in my crayon. It is the color of the setting sun that casts golden shadows as I run The fire pit has been lit, the flames are rising higher Your clothes sure are flammable, thanks for being such a liar Which lengthen as the days turn to nights As your memory has dimmed the city lights The brightness blinds my darkest fear Securing hope for the New Year The blue mighty earth turns dark With moon appear I get moonstruck. Past gets lost in the oblivion I come out in the road as the new sun is on. Is there hope yet for this lost and wandering soul, Is there love left for one so out of control? So begs the question, ever deep, with chilling melting fear. Will I release the old heartbreak or relive the last New Year? I'll drink a cup of kindness yet for days of auld lang syne and smile into that universe that mirrors the divine. I'll smile in spite of heartbreak, and grin instead of cry, And sometime after midnight, I'll put my face towards the sky, And say that life's worth living, and I don't wanna die, And give the wings for hope to live, and begin again to try. Oh Please... get a grip, stop bleating; it's only snow Don't you understand that DELETE means.. Cya! - So Go! for tomorrow if I put my feet upon the floor success in contentment, I will chance to restore. Upon another year I close the door And wonder "could it have been more?" The clouds are coming together to form the new year distant whispers of melody and prayers I hear what else do you want me to say my dear the story tells how much i yearn to hold you near oh....Didn't know it has to be two lines I got carried away by the rhymes Accepting the rhyme of life a new turn is to take Last night I dreamt someone inviting my company on a horse-back I saddled the horse, and fled the memory of you I rode deep into the night, into the dark, dark, blue Intercepting fate, spiral down, down Bright as a star, horses and clowns pass our way as we travel through towns, over hills, fields and green hilly downs. Fate spirals us down to the darkest of night, But joy comes to me with the dawn's morning light. and makes me wonder if I took a part in the time and moments of my broken heart. As I face the clock after midnight was struck. I found that I the same as before might not learn from you or the door It might in fact hit me too it would be a shame to rue and find only another you in my bed, I turn a new leaf today, enough said. Yeah You heard me right- enough said and done, Now I m gonna let go and have my share of fun! A golden flask with bitter rum my heavy eyelids closing I sit upon a wicker chair sulking in the vision I dream of lakes deep and blue, ships with red sails that billow then I awake and remembering you,tears shed on my pillow. As the dawn of promise rouses from its sleepy state The memory of loss remains a stain upon my fate How deeply I now regret, that I cast my fortunes into the hands of fate. In future twice I will think, before venturing thro' the garden gate. Why do I forget regret never sleeps And give myself away while heart weeps Tis a melancholy time of year When every poet sheds a tear. And yet the beautiful day does not care Reminding me to love again if I dare Beckoning me forward if I would Wondering, still, if I should. But those who hesitate are lost Best decide now, later weigh the cost. Who can live without a dream In a towards death life stream!! Never live without dreams, be they castle in the air or hopes that time will steal away our cares. For our dreams be like beacons of light in darkness That steer us safely through the torment of troubled waters The steady keel of confidence comforts sons and daughters
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...
