Title: L O T W #5: Poem
Post by: metaldevil on January 17, 2007, 08:54:24 AM

Rules:
1. Obey XS rules
2. One entry per person

Your task is to write a poem that spells out a vertical message with the first letter of every line. Space it out so it's easier to see the message. You can only use 2 words per line. Please give it a title.

Here's an example by StrictPuppet:
QUOTE(StrictPuppet)
Each line has two words, and it relates to the general message, which is the first letter of each line read down.

Saddened

Wilted mistletoe
Oblivious references
Nightly contemplation
Thoroughly exposed

Yellowed pages
Original contempt
Unyeilding challenge

Lonesome avatar
Outsider unwelcomed
Voracious interest
Empathic touch

Mysterious omen
Everything ends.


If you read it down it says "Wont you love me".


Submission deadline: Wednesday, January 24

Have fun! beerchug.gif

Well I'll kick it so I dont forget like last LOTW


The Journey

Incoherent musings

Mistaken nuances
Incomplete tasks
Subliminal thoughts
Seductive glances

Yearning desire
Omnipotent spectre
Unrelenting pursuit

All aboard the friend-ship


Decisions can
Overwhelm me
Under your
Charming gaze
Happiness never
Eludes me

Because you
Are a
Great friend

Blanket of Love

Drowning alive
Under sheets
Tears abundant
Can't breathe
Holding nose

Opening near
Venting covers
Escaped flatulence
Nostrils rejoice

FIN

American Way

So tempting
Unbelievable taste
Pride dying
Eating more
Reason subsided
-
Succulent grease
Increasing waist
Zipper broken
Entering diet

Major Breakdown
Ending diet


waalah!

I'm Cold

Decadent life
Energy drained
Aneurysm imminent
Decaying gradually

Oncologist pessimistic
Negative outlook

Another test
Results positive
Rendered useless
Inebriated constantly
Vapid existence
Accepted fate
Last request
