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.

TITLE: Holding On Forever
GENRE: Rock Song
RATING: PG-13 for swearing and violence

Like a butterfly with its wings ripped off
I can’t forget the pain that’s been wrought
I can carry my baggage for years and years
Sleep comfortably with subconscious fears
Even during moments of quiet and peace
I’m thinking of ways to bleed the creeps
If only I had my very own time machine
Could show my enemies what pain means

Holding on forever
Is my only endeavor
If I let go I will fall
Lucky if I can crawl

Like a concert full of drunk ass punks
My mind doesn’t want to shut its ass up
The tiniest prick of a sewing needle
Is how a battleaxe’s chop must feel
Insults of the lowest common denominator
Feel like I’m trapped with a dominator
I carry that shit for the longest time
If only I could commit the ultimate crime

Holding on forever
Ties I cannot sever
If I let go I will drop
Nightmare will not stop

Like a strongman lifting a refrigerator
I can carry heavy shit forever and later
I remember every troll and every hater
Drinking their blood is what I will savor
Chewing their flesh, dinner and a show
It doesn’t make much sense, I know
You’re always on the outside looking in
Where every evil thought of mine is a sin

Holding on forever
Using trauma as a tether
If I let go I will splat
Break my fucking back
Holding on forever
Let go I will never
Nobody will pick me up
Expect me to be tough

Fidel  Love (fidelmlove) | 48 comments "I Wonder How It Feels to Float"
by Fidel M. Love

The sky is high
Way outta my reach
Sometimes I cry
Afraid of how I'ma be
Tomorrow, next week
And a year from now
Still in the same place?
Then a tear comes down
I wonder how it feels to float
To not be viewed as a slug
Not a insecure insect
But a beautiful bug
So low to the ground
I can hear some sounds
While my belly's in the grass
A soothing breeze passes by
Telling me this'll pass
I wonder how it feels to float
Like the leaves flying without wings
Then I'm filled with hope
