Ok so my thought is we can each post a few lines of a poem (Original please) and then everyone else builds off it and we'll see were we end up! Doesn't necessarily have to rhyme! I'll start:

Each night I look up,
See the stars,
And Wonder if there's life on Mars,
Demons run when a good man goes to war;
Night will fall and drown the sun
When a good man goes to war.
Friendship dies and true love lies,
Night will fall and the dark will rise,
When a good man goes to war,
Demons run, but count the cost,
The battle's won, but the child is lost,
When a good man goes to war.

Oh ya and it doesn't have to stay on topic but if you could put like stars or something around it so we know that's the poem part that would be great! Thanks!

Each night I look up,
See the stars,
And Wonder if there's life on Mars,

Each night
before I go to bed
I squeeze and rub my swelling head

After that
I get real tired
and feel great happiness, newly acquired
Me -Phil left the site in my charge. I have a recorded phone conversation to prove it.
kohai -If you're the owner, then do something useful like ip block him and get us away from juggle and on a dofferent host!
Me -haha you apparently don't know my history
Kohai - Maybe not, but that doesn't matter! You shoukd still listen to your community and quit being a tyrrant!
Me - i was being completely sarcastic
Kohai - then u misrepresented yourself by impersonating the owner—a violation of the tos

With brief credit to Eliot for the epigraph (and, more or less, the last line), and discredit to myself for having no poetic talent.

This is the way the world ends

bang
crash
BOOM

sky falls, salvation gone
anger solidified, hatred energized
panic weaponized
none survive as the red horseman rides, blazing and aflame
nothing remains in his wake--field and cities leveled

enrichment to enrichment, dust to dust
fragile as glass in a mighty storm, blown away
desperate as water droplets clinging together under a scorching sun, vaporized
broken like priceless antiques, made suddenly worthless
all are become death in a destroyed world

not with a whimper, but a bang

Also, I should note that I'm not really in the mood for rule-following. :P

Running
Never looking back
Masks are shattered, breaking
Hope is death
Forever black

Collective quote
Each night I look up,
See the stars,
And Wonder if there's life on Mars,

Space shuttle combusts
Silent screams, families mourn
A problem, Houston,
Each night,
Before I go to bed,
I squeeze and rub my swelling head,
After that,
I get real tired,
This is the way the world ends,
Bang,
Crash,
BOOM,
Sky falls, salvation gone,
Anger solidified, hatred energized,
Panic weaponized,
None survive as the red horseman rides, blazing and aflame,
Nothing remains in his wake--field and cities leveled,
Enrichment to enrichment, dust to dust,
Fragile as glass in a mighty storm, blown away,
Desperate as water droplets clinging together under a scorching sun, vaporized,
Broken like priceless antiques, made suddenly worthless,
All are become death in a destroyed world,
Not with a whimper, but a bang,
Darkness creeping in the shadows,
Running,
Never looking back,
Masks are shattered, breaking,
Hope is death,
Forever black,
Wakes up, body shattered, mind battered,
Man, that was a bad trip,
A red horseman? That's some fvcked up sh1t,
I'mma take another hit!

One for the team,
But two strikes I'm out,
I don't know were to turn,
I wonder each day who will teach me,
Just what is it I should learn,
Tic Toc, Tic Toc,
You haven't got much time,
Tic Toc, Tic Toc,
Your life is on the line,
Demons run when a good man goes to war;
Night will fall and drown the sun
When a good man goes to war.
Friendship dies and true love lies,
Night will fall and the dark will rise,
When a good man goes to war,
Demons run, but count the cost,
The battle's won, but the child is lost,
When a good man goes to war.

heavy
time-grains slip through my fingertips
they burn
dragging a smile to painted lips
i look
future beckons and mocks at me
tonight
the starlight brings a pained dis-ease
evidently i only come to ddo to avoid doing homework...

but there're sexy bitches everywhere...

From our lips
To their ears,
As we speak,
Nobody hears,
Or wants to hear our broken words,
Taking their words back and forth,
Like messenger Birds,
Flying through the Moonlight,
Guided by the Starlight,
Waiting for the Sun to rise again,
Demons run when a good man goes to war;
Night will fall and drown the sun
When a good man goes to war.
Friendship dies and true love lies,
Night will fall and the dark will rise,
When a good man goes to war,
Demons run, but count the cost,
The battle's won, but the child is lost,
When a good man goes to war.
