Ardent || LoveArdent || Raya (loveardent) | 120 comments ooh ooh! *raises hand* I'LL GO FIRST!!!!!!!!!! ^.^

please don't copy my poem...or plagiarize or cut/paste. thanks ;)

my poem to the lyrics "I need your love"

I used the beginning 2 words as the same
the bolded words are the ones in the poem. the unbolded ones in parentheses are the actual lyrics
the numbers are they syllables

I need your love
I need your time
I need you now, here with me
(When everything's wrong)
Now, here with me (You make it right)
It feels so right (I feel so high)
You are a sight (I come alive 4)
My heart beats so fast with you so near (I need to be free with you tonight 9)
So close so far (I need your love)
You're my guiding star (I need your love)
I'm going crazy, please help me, I can't take it (I take a deep breath every time I pass your door 12)
I can almost hear you, feel you, see you kneel, sit (I know you're there but I can't see you anymore)
Please come back, I can't bear it anymore (And that's the reason you're in the dark)
So dark and closed, my heart, your windows, our door (I've been a stranger ever since we fell apart)
Your dark eyes, they once shone (I feel so out of sea 6)
Please, don't need to fall alone (Watch my eyes are filled with fear)


Black Beauty Bassist (darkflames17) | 178 comments yay people are submitting poems!!! they're both really good!

Standing on the edge ((The Grey- Icon for Hire))


I'm standing on the edge of returning or running away
Is this so called love worth my second chance?
And I was to hold you close enough,
Would we hold each other and finally dance?

I'm making myself look the other way
And I no longer believe these stories children tell at night
Their little mouths always lying
There's no way to get this right

And the hardest part in all of this is
I wish I could come back, hold you to me
And yet I know all my dreams
Are just delusions running free

I should have known, I should have known
You'd come stand right by my door
With dark grey eyes begging me
To give you a chance- just one more

We didn't have a chance
I closed the door on you
You stood there failing
To come up with words for why
We always lose
How cold have become?
This path is long and failing
To lead you on
Is not to blame
I'll walk this path alone
My heart will slowly
Turn to a deep dark stone
But I'll walk away

Erin | 123 comments Lyrics From: You Will Be Found (from the Dear Evan Hansen Musical)

If you ever felt like nobody was there,
If you ever felt forgotten in the middle of nowhere,
If you ever felt like you could disappear,
Like you could fall and no one would hear,

Stand up!
Let the lonely feeling wash away
And when you don't feel strong enough to stand
You can reach,
Reach out your hand.

And someone will come running,
They'll come and take you home
And you will be found because
You are not alone.

Even when the darkness comes crashing through
And your on the ground, broken and bruised
Someone will come carry you
You will be found.

So stand up!
Rise up!
Let the sun come streaming in
Reach out your hand
And you will be found

There's a place where we don't have to feel unknown
If you only say the word across the silence
You'll feel less alone
And you will be found

So let the sun come streaming in
Hold out you'll hand and you'll rise again
You will be found.
