PostSubject: Sphinx Poem   Fri Jan 12, 2007 3:25 am

Just an angsty little poem I wrote some time ago. It just popped into my head, believe it or not.

SPHINX
I sit here,
Watching,
Watching,
Watching across these lonely sands.
For one to grace my presence.

I sit here,
Waiting,
Waiting,
Waiting to be freed from these sands.
For one to deliver me.


I sit here,
Wailing,
Wailing,
Wailing across these dreary sands.
For I am but stone, painful stone.

Does anyone hear me?
No, they do not.
My voice falls on the wind

I sit here,
Watching,
Watching,
Watching all these modern people.
As they chat away once more.

I sit here,
Waiting,
Waiting,
Waiting to befriend those people.
As they buzz about, like bees.

I sit here,
Wailing,
Wailing,
Wailing about my sorry state.
As my heart is stone, mere stone.

Does anyone hear me?
No, they do not.
My voice falls on the wind.

It sounds like a song? Weird, I never thought of it as a song...O_o
But a poem is a poem, and songs are basically poetry, so I guess it could be a song. Smile

Too bad I can't write music well or I would make it into an actual song!

That is awesome Alanna. And I agree that it could be a song. When I read that I think of Evanescence style music. I don't know why. Lol. I just do, but they are amazing so take that as a compliment.

Yes, I've listened to Evanescence before- I especially liked "Bring Me to Life".
I never thought of this poem as a song, though, so I'm quite surprised at everyone's comments. Oh well, cookies for all of ya! Very Happy
