I kinda wrote a poem and I've been hoping someone would tell me if it's any good. [Actually it's a song, but I dunno why I keep on calling it a poem.. =|]

It's called Envelopes, and...if you want to know more just ask =)


Envelopes
Writing songs on envelopes
With dreams full of hope
Hanging onto an unbreakable rope
And laughing at all the jokes

I can't feel you there
You're so far away
And the tears mean nothing,
And the fears mean nothing,
And the 'my dears' mean nothing,
And the days and years mean nothing too,
'Cuz it's clear; what I feared is true...

Writing songs on envelopes
Trying to find a shred of hope
Now hanging onto a broken rope
And wondering how to cope,
In the darkness I grope
I'm writing on...your envelope [X4]

Come here, sit closer to the fire,
Take my hand and together let's drown all the sorrow and ire...
We still have each other,
And I know that's not much,
But it's a crutch
We can lean on
As we walk...into the dawn
Into the dawn
Into the dawn
Into the dawn
Into the dawn
Into the da-aaw-awn
As we walk together...into the dawn

Hey, erm, this is actually a thread specifically for the Poetry Contest so this isn't the right place to post your poem but if you post it as a new topic on the main poetry board I'm sure there'll be people happy to give you some feedback.

Okay, thanks alot for entering but I already closed the competition for this week and said I'd post another prompt on Sunday. It's okay cause I never really made it clear but it did say in the rules that all entries should be PM'ed to me so they can go in the other thread, so it'd be great if everyone could read the rules and make sure they understand before posting : )

my screams are silent
my cries unheard
my only release is before me
when will i be free

i hear the cry of a fallen broken bird
i am the only one
i feel its pain
but there is nothing left to do

for the bird has died
and i feel as thought i have to,
but now, as the shell of my body
walks alone on this cold moonless night

i think about those who have caused this
who caused my tears
my scars
and now my death

i will forever haunt them
for what they did to me
