i am neither here
nor there - just a
forgotten fairytale
hidden deep within
a dangerous mind.

it's the fear,
somewhere in the
truth beneath the rose;
& all i need are
memories.

see who i am -
the deceiver of fools,
pale & frozen,
an ice queen.

but i will
stand my ground
in our solemn hour,
lost in a
demon's fate.
Another prompt, using song lyrics (or titles) of a favorite band. I used song titles of my favorite band Within Temptation, a Dutch symphonic metal/rock band. Their music is haunting and gorgeous and the lead singer, Sharon den Adel, is even more so.

All credit goes to Within Temptation for the amazing song titles. I merely put some together to create a poem. It helped to get my creativeness flowing and break through writer's block a bit, but still not enough. Oh well. I'm putting this as found poetry since I'm using song titles.

Songs used (I highly suggest you listen to them):

Deep Within
A Dangerous Mind
It's the Fear
Somewhere
The Truth Beneath the Rose
All I Need
Memories
See Who I Am
Deceiver of Fools
Pale
Frozen
Ice Queen
Stand My Ground
Our Solemn Hour
Lost
A Demon's Fate

This is great. I would say make a profession of this, but poet financially is just above crack whore and bellow failing author.

Hahaha, I opened this up and before I ever read anything I was going to tell you it was a funny coincidence that the poem title was the name of a band you should listen to.

I guess you have.

Nice job with this. I didn't catch what you were doing until I was partway through.
