    now that my songwriting skills have improved (thanks to bjr :) ), i'll be writing more often to work on my lyrics.

    The night is nearing
    Still yearning for more
    With pale stones for my grave
    A shattered ending
    Is clearing up my head

    Her words so far from the truth
    Each and every lie
    Indecisive wounds scatter my thoughts
    A painful gift wrapped in ebony
    She falls in my eyes
    So below
    A love that equals blasphemy

    The end of our perfect world
    Feed on my grief
    Friction between our shallow hearts
    Never to be the same

    No more innocence from my side
    We gaze into each other’s eyes
    And witness our own demise

    Beyond this world if you follow me
    No compassion will you ever feel
    Beyond the words that are drowning me
    You expect to be so real, such a lie.

    Bodies intertwined, no caring in this world
    We’ve come to recognize our fall
    In a world so evil as yours
    Lust can hardly be a sin
    How long will it last?
    A symphony of loss
    Keeping aside the pains
    A tyrant’s misgivings
    Our shadows still moving
    How long will it last?

    There will be no more innocence from my side
    Not naïve anymore to your empty heart
    We gaze into each other’s eyes
    Sum up and end these ruthless ties.

    i wrote this a while back but i guess i'll start posting with this coz my recent ones aren't coming that good...
    feedback is very much appreciated !

  5. i liked reading the lines ... they are good .. as a feedback i would say " work on the composition of individual lines ...most of them are quite odinary"...

    What ever but... i love the loftyness in gloomy style of writing ... so my final word is ur too gud with this style :D

    keep posting

    believe me u write so good...i just love scheme-less rhymes. or at least i hate AABB ABAB ABCB etc..
    i wish i had a local friend like u.. :) good job

    and there is nothing to be called ordinary ( even if i'm a beginner m sure ) ....for me, lyrics should have simplicity and emotion...u've put both of them beautifully....man u rock..

    heh somehow i completely forgot i posted this and didn't see the comments

    thanks to everyone for their feedback! :) especially harmonizer who praises me too much :p:

    i don't think lyrics always need extraordinary stuff ..i'm not writing poetry here just something i can sing (or growl or shout) with the guitar riffs that i write

    vaguely resembles a real-life experience i guess but i wish it didn't >_>

    OMG i completely missed that there 2 women on this forum now! mistook monica for nandy..can't blame me knowing IGT's been a male stampede for so long

    thank you very very much.

    how can you tell i've learnt?
    besides, what about the 36591 other life lessons queued up to our death? maybe learning is meant to be fun after all :)

    I quite liked it. A little dramatic for my tastes but I think that's an age thing? I loved writing like this not very long ago. The imagery is very nice!

    and <3 for the acknowledgement. When do I get a recording?

    there seems to be a misquote in your signature ! maybe after that's fixed...?

    btw do you think we have enough members active here to have song recording competitions like we used to have? and would you participate yourself if we did? i (and i'm sure others too) need some incentive here to work harder X_X

    haha, I just read that yesterday. I kid you not! I wouldn't participate in a competition but I will post recordings anyway.
