Falling, falling death is calling
Death the deepest hole
Blinding, blinding, life unwinding
Heaven help my soul

Burning, burning I am burning
Forever into ash
Slowly, slowly ever slowly
Nothing ever lasts

Trying, trying sure not flying
My heart the sound of thunder
Faster, faster to meet the master
In the ground, six feet under

Turning, turning stomach churning
Silence the only sound
Going, going never knowing
When I’ll hit the ground

Awesomeness. :) You really rocked it, Alice. Give yourself a pat on the back. (Oh, and BTW, I'm wondering about that description of yourself on your profile... wonder where you got that from. :) )

Oh come on Identity, you know as well as I that you write some pretty great stuff. I agree with you and the other post, I had to make it rhyme and didn't think to put it like that. I'm a freak when it comes to my poetry rhyming. It needs to be perfect. Almost like Kid, just not as crazy... XD Just kidding, he rocks. Thanks for the advice!

D**m. That. Was. Amazing. O.o Whoa. Dude, I couldn't write something like this if you paid me to. I couldn't write to save my life. O.O Wow. 5 out of 5 hands down.

 

The only thing, I agree with another post, the 'in the ground, six feet under' is a bit of a mouthful. But whether you change it or leave like it is, it all flows very easily and smoothly. Great. Fantastic. Brilliant.

This is really amazing! I love it! The rhyming not every line, but every other one works really good with it and makes it flow better and kind of fall off the tonuge gracefully. Great job! 5/5

Feel free to rate/comment on any of my works!

This is so good! But I think one line: "In the ground, six feet under" has too many syllables. Maybe you could make it "grounded, six feet under"?

I agree. The rhymeing and repeating makes it good. Nice job!

I really think that your use of repeating is really good and I like the rhyming too. I can't rhyme as good as that! Nice!
