Ok so this is the first piece i have been working on.One of two. I have just started writting music, but have written poetry for a while. I want to know what you think im talking about, so that i can make sure im getting the point. Its not that long.

A veil of darkness that covers up my eyes.
Deep in my soul that blocks out the lights.
Eclipses that cover up the lies.
I'm getting to tired to hide.

The feelings that i keep inside
you will never see,
a boy has went and died
only a coward remains of me.

I must keep going wth the lies i have built;
beliving my life, a glass about to spill

Trapped in this lonelyness
I'm lost and confused.
Hoping that my weakend mind
will kill the abuse.

Laying here i see myself
restless in reality
cleaning off the shelf
of uncertainty.

light shines through the viel of darkness
showing my soul a thread of hope
snatched away so quickly
None dared move,Nor spoke

For granted i have taken
things so far away to care
things so close to be given
no things gotten to be shared

Well there it is. I hope you like it.Crit please.

beliving my life, a glass about to spill"

These are some pretty powerful lyrics. The only things are the flow gets disrupted sometimes, and some of the ideas are the slightest bit cliche. Also, some of the ryhmes sound childish. BUt as i said, you can practically feel the emotion and feeling in this.

Can you check out mine? either one in my sig if you have time.
