Part II-A poem that's really about my writing process I guess...In a literary form of course!


Continued from Part I
Part II
Dreams of yours, tell me now,
Your story I’ll show you, I vow. 
I’ll show you my pen,
And my ink stained ten.
Lilies and tulips and roses and more,
Really mean nothing when your heart’s at war.
Music is nice, but stories tell more,
Tales of dragons, goblins and gore.
Life isn’t simple like long, long ago,
When nothing was better than playing with snow.
Growing up happened,
And our souls have blackened.
Where’s the laughter of times long gone,
Of life’s young beginning, just at dawn?
It’s lost it’s magic and power,
And life seems to taste just a bit sour.
But there has to be a bit of magic left somewhere,
This can’t just be a blatant affair.
But where could it be found,
I’ll look under every hidden rock and mound.
The fairies still sing,
Listen closely you’ll hear the whisper of a wing.
Shhh, listen closely,
And you’ll know you’re never really lonely.
The magic’s there you have to listen,
They’re there beside you, perhaps you’ll see them glisten.
Do you hear it now?
Save your questions I don’t know how.
Listen to the fairy tale,
And you’ll transcend the veil.
Shhh, do you hear the music cue?
Yep, they’re calling you.

Hey Meradee, your poem is really beautiful. Keep writing more. Are you going to make part 3? If you do, please tell me first :D

Thank you so much! Umm...you know, I actually hadn't thought of doing it, but I might now that you mention it! :D

Nice job and great flow as usual and why not no 3 would flow nicely now as you left it in the air with the music.
