"The Rhythm in the Rhyme"


(Spoken clearly, plain and true)
Have you ever felt a feeling? Then heard it in a song?
When those lyrics fell upon you? Were you compelled to sing along?


(Verse 1 Stanza 1 - from the beautiful mind of the romantic dove)


Yes, we are all poets, for all of you to see
Weaving words to lyrics, for everyone to sing
Words so magical, spiritual, to captivate the heart
All these words can heal or, they can tear your world apart
Some can be endearing; Always full of love
Others are revealing; Sent from Heaven up above
Some portray the lonely; Echoing sorrow
Others leave you hoping, for a brand new day tomorrow


(Verse 1 Stanza 2 - still in flight)


Yes, we are all poets, for all of you to see
No need for you to worry; it's what we love to be
Some words can leave you smiling, the proof upon your face
Others keep you moving; to dance within their grace
Some can lead a journey, to places far and near
While some can preach a story, as your soul begins to cheer
Some words can fill the heart with echoes of the pain
Others speak of glory, for all the poets' fame
Yes, we write these stories. All poets with no names.


(Bridge 1 - from the delectable SSmoothie)


A blessing from such furtive minds
That feed into these rhymes their depth
And from poetic souls we share these rhymes
To join us in this lyric quest


(Chorus 1 - from the madness in the rhythmofcontention)


This rhythm's meant to be a hook
That reels you in to take a look
And strikes you to the core
To strum emotions intertwined
And capture you in rhyme
To leave you wanting more


(Chorus 2 - continued madness)


And with the rhythm in these rhymes
You'll find the solace in your mind
With words that stand the test of time
In every heart and every mind
This is the very real idea
A testament to life
From onomatopoeia
To the rhythm in our rhymes


(Verse 2 Stanza 1 - from the exotic persuasions of Jay-JayMC)


The rhythm's in the rhyme, to help the music grow
Like an addiction to the senses, to let the list'ners know
That the tempo in these verses, can sing without a voice
That you read 'cause you're compelled to; not because you have a choice


(Verse 2 Stanza 2 - exotic continuance)


This rhythm is a simple poem
With words you read until you know them
To entice your mind's appeal
An entanglement of random prose
A rhythmic story you suppose
Expressive rhymes for how you feel


(Bridge 2 - still delectable)


A blessing from the magic rhymes
That feed this song its depths
And from the rhymes of rhythmic minds
To join us in this lyric quest


(Chorus 1 - repeat)


This rhythm's meant to be a hook
That reels you in to take a look
And strikes you to the core
To strum emotions intertwined
And capture you in rhyme
To leave you wanting more


(Chorus 3 - echoed in madness, inspired by SSmoothie)


Surfing through the lines of song
To feel the rhythmic beat
List'ning 'til the music's gone
Before you hit repeat


(Chorus 2 - repeat)


And with the rhythm in these rhymes
You'll find the solace in your mind
With words that stand the test of time
In every heart and every mind
This is the very real idea
A testament to life
From onomatopoeia
To the rhythm in our rhymes


(Verse 3 Stanza 1 - from the pain-stricken heart of xXLove_Hates_MeXx)


Your mind will echo from a sudden beat
Like the flash of stars above these streets
Emotions flow like water's ripples
Blended in a rainbow mesh, just like a bag of skittles


(Verse 3 Stanza 2 - from the triumphant running_with_rabbits)


And as the rhythm speeds its motion
You're among the notions
To share in the emotions
Of the poets in the world lived over


(Chorus 2 - repeat)


And with the rhythm in these rhymes
You'll find the solace in your mind
With words that stand the test of time
In every heart and every mind
This is the very real idea
A testament to life
From onomatopoeia
To the rhythm in our rhymes


(Verse 4 Stanza 1- from the majesty of deepblue)


We rise up from the mental vices
Into a welcome sanity
We cry out to survive in
A world of treasured vanity
Tribal devotion chimes in
To stand with all that stand up for the many


(Verse 4 Stanza 2 - echoed by the grace of poetrywings)


Music is a strum upon the beaten soul
Stroking in the purest essence
To be danced to as a rhythmic whole
With the passion of our own emotions


(by Beavis and his incorruptible insanities)


Caressing rhythms set the tone
Unleashed from passions kept within
These mystic rhythms take a toll
On all the world's indifference
Don't stand and hold out
Forever is now


(Bridge 1 - repeat)


A blessing from such furtive minds
That feed into these rhymes their depth
And from poetic souls we share these rhymes
To join us in this lyric quest


(Chorus 2 - repeat)


And with the rhythm in these rhymes
You'll find the solace in your mind
With words that stand the test of time
In every heart and every mind
This is the very real idea
A testament to life
From onomatopoeia
To the rhythm in our rhymes


(Verse 5 Stanza 1 - the return of the grasshopper SSmoothie)


Music moves the pieces of a tortured soul
Back to the places they belong
And fills the void inside the hole
Of all the darkest spaces known
To wallow in its rhythmic hold, just for the hell of it
There's always poetry untold, within the depths of it
Like a cool fresh breeze that comes along
To ease the summer's heated throng
Like the energy of lightning storms
A charge when rhyming takes its form


(Verse 5 Stanza 2 - from the caffeine induced insanity of my contentious rhythms)


Music yearns to grasp the soul
Of every victim it consoles
To every lover in the throes
Of sharing life with those they hold
To ignore the world and live in bliss
If only for one blessed moment
To tell the world to know from this
You're not alone in agony
We poets share your tragedy
To effervesce the beating hearts
When all of life is torn apart


(Chorus 2 - altered)


And with the rhythm from our rhymes
We'll grant some solace in your mind
With words that stand for all that's right
In every heart and every mind
This is the very real idea
A testament to fly
From onomatopoeia
To the rhythm in our rhymes


(And the finale - by the always tantalizing ashes_twisted)


To offer nourishment to depths
Amid your rhythmic innocence
The rhythm in the rhyme will bless
A benediction to attest
The adventure and pursuit that tests
The rhythm in this rhyming quest


The musical use of words so true
Unspoken in the course of proof
To occupy the essence in
The body of the beating blend
A sense infused with sensitivity
To contain the heart's capacity
To manifest a sacred rhyme
Producing goose-bumps every time

...reposted because it belongs here!


The final posting. With many thanks to beautiful minds of ashes_twisted, SSmoothie, poetrywings, dove, Beavis, deepblue, running_with_rabbits, xXLove_Hates_MeXx, and Shane MC (formerly Jay-JayMC). Without all of you, there would be less rhythm in my mind

Welcome, my friend

Here, I take madness and mold rhyme and reason to it.
Scattered thoughts and brilliance from PPs worldwide collective all blended into the emotions that music embues.

Glad you could stop by and enjoy the insanities we've all shared.
