10 (who?)

I really shouldn\'t of come here,
shouldn\'t of come this far,
but just one look
and i thought you smiled my name
with just one look,
thatís why i came.

I told you, \"Tread lightly
this mind is thin ice,\"

but you say thatís okay-

-that one more shot can\'t kill me
and one more drag can\'t kill me
and one more drink can\'t kill me
and one more go can\'t kill me
and one more spin can\'t kill me
and one more pill can\'t kill me
and one more hit can\'t kill me
and one more drug can\'t kill me
just one more hour can\'t kill me-

And yes, you leave me standing,
but broken apart.
It all makes me sick,
sick and tired to my heart.

Everything sounds like rain
and everything feels like shame
when i\'m the only one to blame
for everything taken away.

It\'s dust to dust,
rust to rust,
all blown away.

And i\'m only afraid to die because i wake up everyday.
i love the cure. robert smith is a god. an art god.

the artwork was created by Yoshitaka Amano

God, it sounds like a Cure song, as well! ;)

:} I like! Pretty picture caught my attention, too, so kudos to arteest.

I especially like the use of rhyme:

I told you, "Tread lightly
this mind is thin ice,"

My fave lines.

its been awhile since ive read this and i come back to it again with more in my head and in my heart than before. its even more incredible.
its amazing how poetry seems to grow alongside with you. even though its always the same, theres so much in it that it cant all be taken it at once.
its like listening to your favorite song a year later and hearing something youve never heard before.

where are you josh?

write some more...........
ive never felt so thirsty for your writing than i do now.

Very nice, it has a lot of feeling to it. I like the chorus, and the concept of the song overall gives me chills (The good kind) Very nice work with this, you should put it to a tune.

Very nicely done, as per usual ;).

Digin the deepness in this one, the mind can really interact with the actions taking place.

Great work.

Wow, that was very interesting to read. It does sound more like a song though. hmmm *thinks* you know any bands? That would be really awesome.

Take care
