If you participated in this event last year than you pretty much already know what to do, but this year's competition has a little more freedom in it. You now have the choice to add 2-6 lines. You can only comment once with your lines so please give it your best shot. It's simple, one person may comment with a few lines and then the next person has to comment with lines that rhyme with the previous comment. The person who gives the best lines will win a fan request from me and everyone who comments, which means that when you comment, you MUST fan request the winner when I announce him/her. On January 31, 2013, all of your lines will be put together into one collaborative poem. Good Luck:)

Mysterious Being


Darkness slowly falls to the ground,

suddenly someone appears withouth the sound,

your face is a mystery,

and you walk precise,

as the whole world starts to wonder,

who is this person of blinding fact?

Not quiet sure how to act

around this person who is so matter of fact

losing my mindslowly over timecan you help it stop?

Now all my hope is long lost

What few things I had to live for

I've now dropped

Am I heading in a new direction

Or am I plunging further

Into this strange, strange obsession?

After a time I make progression

But then I have come to a conclusion

So I leave a single message

It's that this stranger is a great intrusion

My turn is over, now it's yours

Can you stop this mental erosion?

All of a sudden, almost an explosion,

I awaken to the sounds of life so near.

What was this darkness, this faceless confusion,

come over me as if an illusion.

The future we fear, the coming new year,

like a face that is hidden, coming unbidden

Their face is uncovered, it's a contortion

Dark and twisted , the realisation

Of a year ahead tainted by confusion

The future unknown

My untold wishes look bleak

Where are these answers I try to seek?

My memories are going weak.

The colors are fading,

They've started rearranging.

Turning my dream to a nightmare.

And the ones I love are now gone.

But this isn't the end of my song

The nightmare is long,

But the end draws near.

The music starts to fade,

And I let go of my fear

Unknown is what tomorrow brings

No time in the world of planning

Will matter for life is unpredictable.

Fear only takes hold,

If you let it take over

A petrified clover

Enclosed in glass

Those memories I seek

Will they last?

Or fall in streaks

A/N: I know in the description in the description I said that the winner would win a fan request from me and everyone else who comments but recently I have come to the conclusion that this is not a good idea. If I let you down, I am sorry but I promise next time I do this there will be a real prize in place for the winner.
