there's a twist upon the gilded eve
one that flits and smirks right up your sleeve
and slips on out, with sleight of hand
I never had a doubt you came prepared with such perception

no concrete vibes...

For me this reads a little bit like you had an ending line or idea and tried to cajole the rest of the piece out of it. I think what might be best addressed here is to focus on the formal aspects -...

The Curtain's Gap

you chew the meaning of your words
that drip upon the so-absurd
canvas you've got, to scrawl down your imagination's hands
but not the detail of your knuckles

and we'd decide how the planets aligned
and how the tides would turn at sea

I still think you should get shot of the two sub forums and run monthly contests through the main forum as a sticky, and also open up the rules to allow lyric writing discussion. Like, yeah.

Your Heart Will Feel So Damn Sore

I can't take back my love

I won't take your melodies
but I'll take away the band

and you'll be sitting on the sofa
and your heart will feel so damn sore

and resist the temptation to flick a pupil
her way. The air thickened into slag, each
psychic wave held in molten...

and rob the moment of it's fizz
a sentence hangs upon your lip

bored stiff and suffering
self-pity had got a little bit repetitive

or the ending of a trilogy

you make your mind up as you go along
like the wit of a poem or song
I find it get's overly complicated

promising potential or threat
