It'll be daylight soon and for your life, my lady I fear... I get up, get up, sunrise is near.
I implore you to rise, please don't close those eyes, get up before they come!
The dangers of the ones who live in the day, they call us monsters and hunt us.
so please let us fly away, before at the stake we both shall lay.

Because I can,
because I want to,
And because who are you to tell me otherwise?

Even then, there may come a day..
When others opinions we may fail to sway..
And judged as by those we chose not to obey..

And judged as by those we chose not to obey.
Our leader can't beat us trebles any day.
soon at our feet they shall lay.
We shall run the world our way.

Because I can,
because I want to,
And because who are you to tell me otherwise?

Without regard to what used to be..
From our purpose we will never stray..
And change the world for all to see..

And change the world for all to see
What a wonderful feat this would be
Showing love and respect for eternity
Truly a marvelous change for all to see

Truly a marvelous change for all to see,
Is the evening sun
Settling into a glassy calm sea

Settling into a glassy calm sea..
The mermaid swam over to me..
With my last breath, the bubbles above..
I gave my life for the sake of love..

I gave my life for the sake of love..Said She
Staring at the stars above..
What she knows not ,
Is that she forgot,

Is that she forgot...
The thing that she held so dear.
her love for a world she couldn't see.
Her magic has faded... along with her memories.

Because I can,
because I want to,
And because who are you to tell me otherwise?

Her magic has faded... along with her memories..
Like a tree without leaves failing to catch a breeze..
Or an itchy nose that will not sneeze..
And a broken heart long after love leaves..

And a broken heart long after love leaves
as the days turn to weeks
you shuffle thru your day
stopping at the grocer for coco puffs
standing in line you remember
they were her favorite

They were her favorite
How could I forget
I should be contrite
Always in her debt
She is such a delight

She is such a delight
My Mon Cherie
What I would do without her
My heart would surely break
She lifts me up
When I am sad
She makes me soar
When I feel I'm going to crash and burn
She makes me feel loved
When I hate myself
I love her you know
Love the way she makes me feel whole.

Love the way she makes me feel whole.
She is making icing, I get to lick the bowl.

Her love for me always unconditional.
My for her, always purely traditional.

Now she is gone, I miss her very much.
In heaven she be, I wish for one more touch.

Even though it looks like a plaice,
Actually, now I'm quite hungry,
Hear that? That's my tummy: Grumbly,
Better get some food, posthaste,
Just so I won't waste
Away

Of times gone by

That keep cluttering my mind,
those thoughts, those thoughts,
that keep cluttering my mind,
I really hope I can eventually find,
some peace of mind.
I wonder if this driver is signed?

"I wonder if this driver is signed?"
My license and permits
Are all intact
And on the bottom line I signed.

And on the bottom line I signed,
But before doing so, I whined,
"this pen," I said, "is empty, sir,"
The man, he looked and gave me another,
I said, "why thank you man, now kiss my brother,"
The man, looked puzzled, his head he scratched,
"but sir, I fancy your mother, we are well matched,"
So as I signed, he kissed my mother,
They both eloped all the way to Anstruther

(Note: Anstruther is a wee town in Fife, Scotland)

just pack up and head out the door
leave your wooden oars
in the sand on the shore
as we all eat your smores

Just a wee reminder of the rules:

Quote:
Create a poem and use the last line of the poem created by the person above as your first line. I'll start:

A poem I'm creating,
It will have four lines,
But what I'm anticipating
Is walking through trembling pines

Edit: I should be clear, the poem can have as many, or as few lines as you want and take any poetic form.

They both eloped all the way to Anstruther..
Where it's not unusual to dress each other..
Nothing wrong with them all wearing shirts..
But a bit too much when the men wear skirts..

Lfunny

But a bit too much when the men wear skirts,
Such insolence! Kilts are manly,
And for big burly manly men,
Now excuse me, I'm off to swing a hammer,
Toss a caber, drink some whiskey and eat haggis.
Skirt, my hairy Scottish arse!

There's nae need tae curse,
I have no idea what my last line should be.

So let me start at the first.
As simple as 1, 2, 3 or A, B, C..
It could hardly be much worse..

It could hardly be much worse,
unless you were, by chance, the first.
I see them come and let them go.
Some then fell to the lowest of the low.
I know what I am, as you can see.
and yet you think you are able to change me!
I snapped hearts into and ripped love out of the seams.
and watch you shatter like waking from a dream.
so again be glad you weren't the first.
for she had it the worse.

Because I can,
because I want to,
And because who are you to tell me otherwise?
