That was so beautiful and touching and full of emotion. Really beautiful.Holly504 Main
A very interesting take on the prompt by putting together songs from a bunch of artists. I like it, nice job.
Amazing, such creativity you have."Love me like the laughter" my favorite line.
So very beautifuly and touching. Great love is so rare. You're the only way to meYou reach in and touch my soul my favorite part
I love the twist you put on this by using song lyrics! "Just overwhelm me"....what a perfect line about how we feel when we are in love.Thanks for posting this.Stopping by from Mama Kat's
Beautiful arrangement! It amazes me how writers can write so many songs without duplicating each other, how so many songs say just you are feeling or going through.Love the look of your blog! Thanks for stopping by - from Mama Kat's
"We have been too far nowTo bend the truth"This line really stuck out. The depth of feeling in this was amazing. I'm so glad I stopped by.
"The silent pact of trust." "Your words in my memory are like music to me" *sigh* And music is the connecting idea in this. Wonderfully put together...
Your words in my memoryAre like music to me.That is my favorite line. I like this mish mash poem. It just gets better and better!
reminiscent of pablo neruda. "just overwhelm me" - yummy
This was stunning. beautiful!
so unusual, your mind comes at things differently to me and i love that. thanks for stopping by my blog today its really nice to say hello jane x
I love it when a writer feels free to bend the rules of "typical" composition. This was fantastic. What a great place to go with the prompt. I felt very moved with you. Visiting from MK,Amy
Awesome idea to take song lyrics and mold them to fit...creative and moving!
That's really gorgeous! I never thought of doing that.
Oooh, I love your take on this! So clever!
Very creative! Great job.
Love. LOVE this. Music is so powerful and I love how you intertwined so many songs. This is brilliant.
How cool that you put all those lyrics from different musicians together! Love it! Stopping by from Red Dress Club. -http://leahainla.blogspot.com
Oh, that's an interesting approach (lyric melange). It ended up beautiful.Stopping by from Red Dress Club.
That was great, so very sweet.
Wow. This is a challenging prompt. I liked the poem and I'm pretty amazed that it's a collage of lyrics. You did a great job:~)I loved every word, but this verse somehow really touched me:"Put faith in what you believe inEven if you cannot hear my voiceClose your eyes and sing to me"Great job:~)
Love what you did with this.
What great music you've made from so many different songs. You've melded, molded, and made a heart beat. :>
This is beautiful, sad, and touching. I like what you did. I'm impressed with how you came up with one song from different songs. That must have been quite a challenge!
Thank you for your comments. I felt badly that it was not an original work, but it does show my creativity. And like it is for many people, music speaks for me. With lyrics like this to work with, choosing the songs was easy. I had too many songs and probably another poem's worth of great epic, intense lines. I actually cut the line I was going to use from "Till Kingdom Come" by Coldplay, I realized later. The arranging is what took the time.I get the impression that several lines really impacted some of you, so here are the lyrics matched with the songs and artists:Walking on Sunshine - Katrina and the Waves"I used to think maybe you loved me"Think About You - Guns N Roses"It was the best time I can remember""Deep inside I love you best"Two Hearts - Phil Collins"put faith in what you believe in""can reach you no matter how far"You Touched My Heart - Phil Collins"you reached in and touched my soul"I Finally Love This Town - Tired Pony"we have been too far now to bend the truth""do you remember what happened here?""It was the purest moment"Everlong - Foo Fighters"the way you wanted it to be""promise not to stop when I say when""I've waited here for you"Run - Snow Patrol"even if you cannot hear my voice"In My Arms - Snow Patrol"silent pact of trust I never could admit""and sing to me"Set The Fire To The Third Bar - Snow Patrol"Your words in my memory are like music to me"What If This Storm Ends - Snow Patrol"I don't want to run, just overwhelm me"Make This Go On Forever - Snow Patrol"the first time that I felt connected to anything"Engines - Snow Patrol"I love you like the million times I..""Love me like the laughter and the kissed back tears"Just Say Yes - Snow Patrol"You're the only way to me"
So creative! I've never seen anything like this!
Wow. How great. Wat a neat way to create a poem.ps Popping over from Feels Like Home
I can't write poetry to save my life so it was I so happy to see another Mama Kat prompt used in such a creative way. You must have so many songs in your memory bank! Thanks for stopping by my blog, this is a fun way to meet new bloggers!
Beautiful, really. I've enjoyed browsing through some of your older posts today. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, and consider me your newest follower :)
I knew I was recognising a lot of this as I read! What a clever concept. Lyrics are some of the best poetry, in my opinion.Everlong - sigh. Best song ever.
Good piece, enjoyed it a lot.
Lovely. Chills! <3
