          no

 

 

 

 

 
                                
         no one can save me
 
 
 
 
 
         no
 
 
                
                        no one can save me
 
 
                                                
no one can save me but you
 
 
 
                    my world was on fire
 
 
 
            what a wicked desire
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
                                 An ocean made of sapphire
 
 
 
                  my heart is breaking for you
 
 
 
                                   our secret Eden caught fire
 
 
                                                
 
                           no one can save me but you
            
 
 
                                    
    I was treading an empire
 
 
 
                    dreaming and believing in you
 
 
 
                                our dance felt like barbwire
 
 
 
            lost in the wavelength of you
 
 
 
                                    A mirage made of hellfire
 
 
 
                             looking and searching for you
 
 
 
                                    might our energy expire
 
 
    
                loathing and hoping for you
 
 
 
What an oppressive attire
 
 
 
        drowning and swimming in you
 
 
 
    your resentment I admired
 
 
 
burning and dying in you
 
 
 
        No one can save me
 
 
                
                  no
 
 
 
 
                  no one can save me
 
 
 
 
                             no
 
 
                                                
no one can save me
 
 
                                                
              no one can save me
 
 
 
 
   no one can save me but you
 
 
 
                    my world was on fire
 
 
 
            what a wicked desire
 
 
 
 
I never dreamed
 
 
 
         I'd meet somebody like you

Author's Note

+she plays with matches+



This time I could say I was truly inspired by both music and imagery. I wanted to see if I could spin off my own poem based on a famous song and some well-known lyrics. The reverberation of her voice made me feel like I was in a canyon surrounded by beautiful echoes...I tried to share this emotion the best I could, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

And you have certainly achieved your goal.........the way you have formatted your gripping write is like that of an echo descending down the valley of desire while still so much on fire, but the fire being snuffed out little by little....AMAZING!! I love it!!! I am so often inspired by a video, or an image, or both so I can really relate to you wanting to create this piece!!!
A favorite of mine!!

I got goosebumps while reading this. The music added a taste to it! It was beautiful and it gave off a really unfamiliar feeling. I couldn't explain it but it was definitely a positive one. I felt like the words continued bouncing off against the walls of my room while reading this. Oh my God. I hope I can be as creative as you in writing. You're definitely into it. Excellent work. ^^

WOW MUSE this poem is really intense… I love the repetition, it drives the pint home… Can't believe I missed this one.

Well, based on your author's note, you did what you set out to do, using the medium to its full advantage. Your work lends itself to a multimedia exhibit.

Sounds like an intensely forbidden relationship driven by the passions of knowing you can never be together but in those few secret times. I've been involved in a few of these what can only be described as destructive liaisons. I was entertained at how you presented this. A truly unique style.

I never heard her but will keeo an eye on her work...
The way that you have presented this seemed very much like an echo to me even before getting your note. I love the fading in and out with the transparency as well. Beautiful piece. Beautiful words. xx
