A whistle in the wind
A rumble in the ground
Sin may be close to kin
yet with the softness of a cloud

A fast pitter-pat
A tickle close to heart
Beware of that feeling
-Squash it with a start
I wrote this for my friend.....though, I suppose she may never see it.

Hello to you, and you and you, what can I do today
I see what you want, it's ghastly and gaunt, and I think you should just go away
What do you mean, you think that it's keen; it's awful and I can't abide
I think you should hurry, and please, please scurry, get out, your want is denied
We all have our views and yours made me choose, to ask you to leave me alone
I know you meant well, but I bid you farewell to move on to a better unknown

Another attempt as this format. I like it because you can have fun with ideas, emotions and even beliefs...

To deny the curving turn of the earth
Is to deny your own subconscious depth
Your reasoning, wave and subtle worth

No stranger to temptation
Yet i find myself here -
This self destruction
Compells me beyond fear

Life's trappings cannot hold -
The fears of mortal souls,
Forced forward to an end
One will never suspend

So forth i will stride
Into paths indeterminate -
No longer denied
I will advance with morals forfeit

what a crazy life,
what an overwhelming and crazy life,
If people would have explained to me,
what this games was about from the start,
things would have gone differently,
What's this game about you ask?

haven't found the true meaning,
it's like wondering what's the meaning of life,
and sitting for hours wondering,
if dying for this,
and wasting time,
is all worth it.

And you see,
Street lights are very lit in my street tonight,
The funny thing about that sentence,
it's that i don't know what it means yet,
but deep down,
very deep down it's already implanted itself somewhere,
becoming meaningful, every second.

I've noticed the same thing happens,
with people, things, words, actions,
once they are implanted
there's no way back,
and they will become a part
of what WE will be in the future,
and of the few things, we will truly have before we die.

This petty game,
that's mostly being played
by people who don't even know
they are playing it,
It's all about happiness and being meaningful?

But how can we play a game about being happy,
when half the things that define us,
are the things that hurt us the more.

How can we play a game about being happy,
when we forget the happiest times
in our lives.

Just how can i try to be happy,
when happiness leaves my hands
as fast as i try to grasp it.

it's more than a game,
so this metaphor at the end of it all,
it ain't really good,

but when something
has been denied to you,
when deep down,
it feels like I've been
prohibited being happy,
Everything feels like a tabletop,
and i'm just the pawn.
