Don't think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It's self conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can't try to do things. You simply must do things. -Ray Bradbury


The beat is broken, rough, choppy
Yet gliding into one
Like two people
Never meant to be together
But happy
Different sounds
From all around
Distractions tearing them apart
Yet they are determined, getting stronger
But their love cannot hold on much longer
Arabian nights
Black as ebony
Black as his heart will someday be
Black as the hole within her soul
Black as death
Black and cold

Inspired by an instrumental song I heard.

Thanks for your input and well, yeah.  now when I read it I can see how that'd be a problem.  I guess I wasn't really paying all that much attention reading it over and it didn't sound so repetitive.  thanks!

This is great! The only think I don't care for is how the 9th line starts with "yet" and the very next line starts with "but". They pretty much mean the same thing and it sounds, well, repetitive. And not in a good way.
