I PAID MY DUES
happymole

*  Not written as a poem but as just one of my blues (again).
 1
 
 
 
 
 
 
Shallow morning keeps the sun
 2
while purple evening hides a gun
 3
You went away and so we’re done
 4
found my heaven when you’re gone
 5
 
 
 
 
You know there’s nothing more than shit
 6
when you think that you ain’t fit
 7
When I’m feeling down a bit
 8
I know I’m smaller than a hobbit
 9
 
 
 
 
When all my thoughts remain unknown
 10
will mystery reveal to you
 11
That I’m broken and I’m blown
 12
So I’ll just play some crazy blues
 13
 
 
 
 
This tempting trigger triggers me
 14
I ain’t a fool but I can be
 15
I’m lying next to thousand signs
 16
That everest will soon be mine
 17
 
 
 
 
I paid my dues.

favorite stanza is the first one.

so, this is a song... and, if it's a song, then it can't be critted here, which is good, cause it's not a very good song.

haha, oh joey

I don't want to comment on the poetry, I only want to say that this is one of the sadder pieces here.  If it's your life, I hope you don't do this.  Time does heal and wounds (and wounds all heels so always be a nice person).  I can imagine this sung by Keith Urbin, whose voice I like very much.

JOEY:
Hi there! :)

Uhm,  I dunno but preference is relative, right?  Anyway, if this song hits the wave sometime soon, I'll keep you posted.  :)

Thanks for dropping by.  Hope you'll find some time to critique my other poems so I can do some revisions to improve them.  


FRACTALCORE:
Thanks.  

The first stanza is my favorite too.


ISABELLE5:
Hello there.

Yes, this is about my life.  I've been into this struggle for quite some time now.  There are moments that I'm being provoked to choose a convenient escape than accept facts/truths including the existence of pain inflicted to me 8 years ago.  To forgive is an act that is still strange to me.  Anyway, thanks for that hopeful tone of yours.  :)

by the way, did you mean Keith Urban?
 — happymole

haha
this is actually kinda funny
good stuff!
 — chuckle_s

Thank you so much, chuckle_s.  :)

if this "hits the wave" it wouldn't mean anything here. it'd be like joe-billy-joel doing a drag on elton john with a rhyme-slime about the greatful dead, on american idol... it wouldn't have anything to do with poetry or with anyone here. as you intuit, i wouldn't even know if your song got mtv'd because i just wouldn't care anymore.
 — joey

I like L 1 and 14. Don't care for any of the rest of it. Especially the use of hobbit. You can do better!
