A Lover's Quarrel

Ignite the fire
We both burn out
Tears are shed
But there's a drought
Hiding out
We're in the open
One heart mends
The other's broken
Turn the page
Back to the start
The angel shoots
Gets hit by the dart
In the heart
The love explodes
Pounding out
Now bestowed
Upon us both
Still in denial
Of the passion we shared
We're still hostile
Let's put an end
To this quarrel, this duel
Ignite the fire
I have the fuel

Is this lyrics to one of your songs? I like it, especially "Tears are shed but there's a dought"
 — Capulet

it does sound lyrical....i like it.
 — Tandisol

Thanks guys! I plan on making this a song in the near future :)
Much thanks again!!!
 — psychofemale

Better as lyrics than poetry, this time.  Poetry would not have to rhyme to make it work but as I am well aware, lyrics often demand a very stark and heavy beat throughout.  

The angel shoots, gets hit by the dart is hysterical!  
 — Isabelle5

 — psychofemale

This would never work as a song, there is too much starch in the meter and this would sound like old macdoonald's farm. with a shingy dingy here and a shingy dingy there.

bad bad bad to the bone

Anything that has
"tears are shed"
in the first stanza (or any stanza for that matter)becomes a murky, putrid swamp
I no longer wish to tread.

heeheeteehee. tread, shed. I can rhyme, too!

unfortunately, that does not = poetry.

 — unknown

that's why i sell a shit ton of my music :)
 — psychofemale

but i guess old macdonald did sell cuz hell everyone knows the words :)
 — psychofemale

you sell a shit ton? probably because they can't unsterstand it behind the screeching.
 — unknown

that made no sense...lol
 — psychofemale

what does unsterstand mean? i do not understand :O
 — psychofemale

I enjoyed this, very much.
 — Seanote

thank ya very much! :D
 — psychofemale

are these the lyrics to a song ???
i love  the first verse, kinda puts me mind mind of where I'm at with my fella at the mo :0)
 — wintersun

yes, they are lyrics :D
 — psychofemale

you must take me for a fool. cause personally
i don't think you've got the fuel anymore.

and yes, we're probably still far too horsetile
the horsie's broken a leg, and the tiles are cracking up with laughter.

maybe change the last line to:

I had the fool
 — unknown

 — unknown

surely, you mean barf?
 — unknown

what in the fuck are you talking about....seriously?
