Oh I love one carlyanne just told about jack so I have to post it and save it in my file:

smile flickers
across his face
revealing
boyish dimples
before swiftly
disappearing

They don't get mad about everything.But when things get repeated it tends to get annoying,that's all.

You broke my heart,
but I have some tape.
Put it back together,
in an abnormal shape.

Pretend it's like new,
ignore the scars.
Forget all the pain,
as if its not ours.

Throw away the hurt,
discard all the debris.
Candy coat the truth,
so no one can see.


I wrote that in a few minutes. I had a better one. Don't know where it ran off to..

Hmm... oh, here is one I sort of like... I will share...

their bare feet pad
through cool, damp grass, toenails darkened with dirt
tiny naked bodies
soft and unscarred
cool to the touch
their hair is unwashed
faces smudged with
dandelion yellow
they run across the lawn
jump into the elephant-shaped pool
giggling
their tan skin
shining with sweat
and hose-water
it makes me smile to watch them
these innocent creatures
lost in childhood
parents may fight
wars may go on
but the children will always smile
for them, everyday is as carefree
as this August afternoon

This is more of an idealistic look at children through my eyes. Unfortunately, I have had some terrible experiences with kids.

Imaginary friend come and take me along,
you make me feel as if I belong.
Looking for trouble in all the right places,
searching for fun and mysterious faces.

With a creative mind,
you can do so much more.
Your thoughts take control,
and life isn't a snore.

We can walk right on the water,
swim throughout all the streets.
Jump for the moon, steal stars,
accomplish incredible feats.

Grasping for excitement,
to do the impossibly impossible.

Cross all the I's, dot all the T's,
ride right along on a chilling breeze.
We're able to do what hasn't been done,
walk along while everyone has to run.

With a creative mind,
you can do so much more.
Your thoughts take control,
and life isn't a snore.


Another one. This is a song.

Thanks! Normally I don't like to rhyme either, I'm not very good at it. But I submitted some of my stuff into a song lyric contest, and I wrote a bunch of new ones. Songs just don't seem right unless you rhyme.
