Gentle lady, do not sing
Sad songs about the end of love;
Lay aside sadness and sing
How love that passes is enough.

Sing about the long deep sleep
Of lovers that are dead, and how
In the grave all love shall sleep:
Love is aweary now.
Joyce Jan 2016
Sometimes
I sing.
Sometimes
I think.
Sometimes
I feel dirty.
Sometimes
I feel flirty.
In the shower
I feel the
power.
I can do
anything.

Singing in the car
Windows rolled down
Guy rolls window down
I look at him and sing
He smiles
GREEN**
We go on
And I keep singing
Sing.

show me
how you dance
and sing
for the cameras.
show the passion you have,
let me hear you hit those notes,
or perfect those moves.
i wanna
see how hard work and
the dedication.
show me, you.
your talent.

beware when you fall in love
with an artist
be it a painter, a singer, or poet

for the artist will
paint you
with strokes and hues
in shapes of every kind

sing about you
with heartbreak lyrics
and feelings which rhyme

write about you
with the simplest words
and a secret message she wants to say

beware of the artist,
and her love
one wrong move
and you're an artwork in her display
Sing for me, my sweet
You know I sing for you now
From the depths of me
My attempt at a haiku

4am conversations

I'm talking in my sleep



While you are somewhere crying

You say this isn't me.



You say that I have pretty thoughts

And I have pretty words.



But you don't see the under layer

(I'm dying in my sleep)



The scars go down like railroad tracks

(These pills are killing me)



And never seem to cease

(I'm dying in my sleep.)



This heart is barely beating

(How could you say that to me?)



My lungs are last to fail me

I'm singing in my sleep.

Poetry
to me
is taking
my pain
and making
it sing.
I love to hear you sing.
Your voice overwhelms my heart.
May I sing with you?
May  I accompany your great art.
I, myself, love to sing.
My voice makes me feel free.
Oh, please oh please
Will you sing with me?
I really do love to sing. I love to sing the most with one of my good friends. He is a very talented guy and his voice matches mine. It's not love that I feel for him, but a friendship.

Dance
as though no one is watching
Love
as though you've never been hurt
Sing
as though no one can hear
Live
as though heaven is on earth

The little mermaid
Is an incredible princess.
Her skin is immaculate,
Her hair is flowing perfection,
And she can sing-
I'm jealous.
Like the mermaid on the
Starbucks logo,
She's perfectly symmetrical.
And I know, I know,
She's not really a mermaid,
But a siren.
Much like Ariel
Who is a human on land
But a fish in the water.
I am jealous.
I'm a fish out of water.
Eleanor Rigby Sep 2014
I can't sing,
Or play the piano.
I can't draw
Like you do.

But I love you.
