I'm a little embarrassed to post this one, but okay, here I go. This was my first attempt at romantic-ish poetry.
For a friend of mine, who moved out of the country. Would it be pretentious to say I was completely in love with him, and we were going to get married? I think not :D

Shimmer, glitter,

Sparkle and shine away.

Float so close,

And as my fingers brush you,

Pull back and soar higher still.


Be my frustration,

My longing,

My anger and my sincerity.

Be everything that is holy,

And pull me into hell.


Show me your wings, and coax

Me to the heavens,

Until I try to follow you and fall back to

My feet on the earth.


Be my longing,

Be what I need most;

My love,

My dreams.



And I shall work, and climb,

Until I can fly next to you,

In the white of the clouds,

And the light of the moon;

My love,

My obsession.


And I shall chase you,

With tearing eyes,

Until I can hold you.


But shall I be the lightning

That makes you fall from the sky?

And twist your wings from under you?


For you are in the heavens,

Can I pull you to the earth with me;

when you lose the lustre of your wings,

Will my illusion shatter,


And will I finally see

That you are only like me?


But until then,

I shall cry myself to sleep,

For Then I can see you, and love you,

And hope you remember me.

And if you do,

That shall be the day I cry from joy.

Aww this is so sweet! It really flows to! I love it! But when you start a new line I think it needs to end where it HAS to as you have ended the line and gone down the page still going in the same sentence... It can get confusing... But hey it may just be Booksie's silly formating! XD

yeah, I did it on purpose. It's supposedly a technique or something, but I just think it looks/sounds good.
I've always had this thing for an almost flowing, but still a bit jumpy rythems. It just sounds good to me
