Rhymes For Her

The following bit was originally my answer to a comment on the last post, but I thought it deserved a spot on the main page...

I sit still, as I close my eyes;
I try to think, get my focus right.
But the words I see tell no lies,
There, laid out in plain sight -
A ballad, in perfect rhyme!
Enchanted, losing track of time,
I tell myself that it's a lie;
It's not possible, not ever!
Thoughts of you, begin to fly
Round my head, now it's a fever -
I need to get to know you better!
So have a heart, I need an answer!
For as much as I try and deny,
Your rhymes have me, I cannot lie;
Even now though I haven't seen you,
In shades of red, black and blue,
I think of you, and form a picture,
Though I know I could never capture
Your essence, your beauty sublime,
With the simple words that I rhyme.
So please, would you hear my plea?
I beg of you, down on one knee;
A little something about yourself,
Just to help me live with myself.
If not I could never ever forgive
Myself during this life I live,
Knowing that I'd never get to know,
About the girl that charmed me so.
In dreams you'll be until you do,
So here I am waiting for you!

Is this about the girl you used to run about with at school? :P

Nicee.... you are a prodigy.

No it's not... and thanks but I don't know about the 'prodigy' thing - all so-called 'prodigies' in history either end up dead or nailed to a cross! I'm just someone who's looking for a place to call my own in society... plus I don't consider myself a 'true' poet - true poets write and express what they feel. I on the other hand can only express what I 'want' to feel; I lack the true characteristic of emotion that gives meaning to the words...
