    Sounds great!

    EDIT: Here is my entry, titled "You must send me away"

    Hugging me within the safety of your cardigan,
    drying the icicles of depression,
    lighting up my face with lanterns and pastels -
    you are too kind to me, dear,
    pouring compassion into my hollow eyes.

    But, I'm becoming swollen because of you.
    Was I made to love this much, this often?

    I know you never wanted me to leave;
    These streets pull me further away...
    your hands age and grow cold with fright.

    I'm sorry I cannot protect you from
    the change of seasons, yet I will travel for you,
    when wheelchairs screech and you ache
    for the strength it takes to soar.

    I will meet the forsaken skies (all for you).

    Here's my poem for the contest

    Title: Cry You Rivers

    You can lie to me,
    I actually look forward to your lies.
    For right through them I can see,
    The give away are your eyes.

    You ask me to run away,
    you try to keep me at the bay.
    So I am going to drift away,
    For your happiness,I'll make way.

    And I would go,
    from this beautiful land of yours.
    And I would go,
    taking away my remorse.

    But remember,this one tiny thing,
    there will come a day when the birds wont sing.
    When the forests would be bald and bare,
    Nothing at all, the storm would spare.

    So come to me that day,
    when the drought leaves you in slivers.
    So come to me that day,
    and I'll cry you rivers.

    (Here I have tried to use forests and the girls land to describe her mind. And how one day a certain mental pain would take away everything that's beautiful.I would know about it for it had devastated my forest too( though not mentioned expressly) and in the last line I would try to relieve her of this pain using some of my own. I hope you would like it.)

    *****************CLOSED*******************

    Since I only have two entries. I'm not going to pick a winner. However, I'll be commenting on two of your poems aside from the ones already posted here. So in reality, you should be getting three comments from me. Just bear with me. If you would like a particular poem for me to comment on, let me know.

    I'll start commenting tomorrow. Thank you for participating!
