We - both of us - are not alone.
Our 'oddness', with each other, we can atone.

Our fears dissipate, and in that space we can create,
something that 'God' could not conceive.

Hmmmm, A challenge..
I would like a poem or song, about humans and aliens comming together and working together for a common goal. Something
inspiring, uplifting..


P.S..
Will try and get some more challenges comming our way.. :tu:

Glad you decided to repost this challenge because I thought I saw it then later saw it had been removed? Good thing because I began writing last night but finished just now. Hope it doesn't seem too morbid because it is rather inspirational for me.

It was a black day when they came
I'd just woke up from an accident
wrong way on the interstate
with hate
telling me I was to blame
for the family

Who died in the same hospital
the war of the mind
drove into serenity
of mother and child
then from outside my window
ships in the sky

Aboard one a psychologist
who'd soon stand before me
peering into fallow fields
of a haunted mind
light in her hand
my deep desire to change the past

And by default she explained
the future too
health and hope restored
not just for me
soon mother and child
stood there with us too

two of my friends, i had a few more

you were mine
never had doubt of mind
but i was young
and they say years for you go by faster
oh wait up
by time i got home you were gone
my cousin had told me you passed on
describing the way your tongue fell out
oh hold on
something is wrong

you were mine when i had no other friends
didn't make me feel inadequate
when i prefered to pretend
i thought i could be there
this time i was armed
not even foresignt could extend
to the day you chased a car
didn't stop when you got crushed
to the vets
was promised we'd rush
when in your pain you bit my hand
sorry for betraying you
carring you the wrong way
had to go to a human clinic
oh hold on
i'll be there soon

Challenge:  Emotion at the airport...


I'm sitting in a Delta bar
Terminal E, waiting for my baby
The plane is late and time stands still
I just can't wait to tell her how I feel
Along the paths of Avalore
Where sunset doth meet Earth and Sky
Another drink,  another song from
Someone's Iphone passing by
Another plane, a late arrival
Patience drained, it's pure survival
Finally the large white bird is flown
Happy travelers faces smiling
Forget this day, forget tomorrow
Nothing here but pain and sorrow
I'm left standing all alone

Challenge. Give me an original sad story, song, poem about a dog.

A chicken's life is pretty boring
Laying eggs and scratching round
For corn or bugs, what can be found
A pen of eight with proper wire
Built to keep out predators
Who could have guessed the neighbor's dog
A Pitbull full of Rage and Fire
Would break it's chain and
Break the wire, keeping safe the little spurs?
Arriving late upon the scene
Of carnage, littered chicken wings
With Magnum powered gun in hand
To end the Pitbull's final stand
But finding dog just laying, panting
Half hearted giving chase to rabbit
Tired from all the chicken chew
No heart was found that day to kill
He just did what Pitbulls will
He just did what Pitbulls do
The neighbors found him better home
Where chickens and toddlers do not roam
And just to make a safer pen
A hurricane fence was added in

reminds me of a poem request in the poets challenge thread..

hmm... maybe I should check it out ;)

The letter kills but The Spirit gives life. 2 Corinthians 3:6

Non-ambiguity and non-contradiction are one sided and thus unsuited to express the incomprehensible. -Jung

I challenge a poet to write an epic verse with this as your theme:

The Lord Jesus: Wild Oats Years (The Gospel According to the Girl Next Door)

Go for it.

I want to be the person
my dog thinks I am
I want to be honored
that he finds ecstasy in my touch
I want my devotion
to equal his unchanging love
I want to be his guardian
from all danger or trial
I want to be loyal
even to the damned
I want to be noble
by faith and forgiveness
I want to belong to him
even when he closes the gate of life.
