Poetry Challenge Accepted

Upon musing around through WordPress I found a challenge that The Shimmer Within Her had posted about making poetry from your playlists. You use the first line of the first ten songs on a playlist to compose a poem.  The one I have listed below is a random collection on my Halestorm Pandora station.  This was pretty fun, take a crack at it to get some creative juices flowing.  Also check out The Shimmer Within Her for a cool blog.  Thanks for the idea!


Circling your head contemplating everything you ever said

I always thought I had it figured out

Am I more than you bargained for yet?

I judge by what she’s wearing

A fire’s gotta burn

And this is how it feels when I ignore the words you spoke to me

Keep holding on

We’re all seen a man at the liquor store begging for your change

Just talk yourself up

I dreamed I was missing
