The rules are pretty loose. You could write a poem about anything that has to do with the subject/photo but it must relate to the topic somehow.

Edward Davies | 1727 comments Title : Should I Turn Around
Poet : Edward Davies

Walking down the street at night
I hear a spooky sound
I dare not dare to stop and stare
Too scared to turn around

The sound of dripping, as from fangs
Like liquid on the ground
A dripping and a splashing noise
I dare not turn around

A growl like from some unknown beast
A devilish hellhound
Just risen from its muddy grave
I shouldn’t turn around

I stop my progress to the place
Towards which I am bound
I can’t resist, I have to look
And then I turned around…

Garrison Kelly (cybador) | 9619 comments POET: Garrison Kelly
TITLE: Cold War
GENRE: Heavy Metal Song
RATING: PG-13 for swearing



VERSE 1
I could do this all day long
Got to show that I am strong
I’ll wait for you to cool down
To minimize the angry sounds
You fought with me and lost
Stop thinking you’re the boss
This cold war is mine to win
Only then can we both grin

CHORUS
A slap to the face
Then I turned away
Escape from this place
For at least a day
Silence rules this domain
As we bottle up this pain
What are we fighting for?
It’s just another cold war

VERSE 2
This could end when you say sorry
We could end our little pity party
My door is open only for the calm
Until then, you’re locked in the hall
Pile bookcases against the door
It’s shelter for the coldest wars
Blast my music to drown you out
Go ahead and try to shout me down

CHORUS
A slap to the face
Then I turned away
Escape from this place
For at least a day
Silence rules this domain
As we bottle up this pain
What are we fighting for?
It’s just another cold war

BRIDGE
Stupid reasons, stupid words
Yet we never seem to learn
Stupid outcome, stupid shame
As we play the blame game
Was it worth it in the end?
Losing yet another friend?
Check your ego at my door
Put an end to this cold war

VERSE 3
Silence is an introvert’s favorite thing
Especially when the heartache stings
I’m still waiting, but I’ll never crack
You’ll be the first to stab me in the back

CHORUS
A slap to the face
Then I turned away
Escape from this place
For at least a day
Silence rules this domain
As we bottle up this pain
What are we fighting for?
It’s just another cold war
