Hello! I am a beginning music composer, and I mostly write music for string ensembles and for voice. I would like to find some poetry I may make into a song, with the author's permission - I will give you credit! I will also try to make some piano accompaniment. I love writing and I can write poetry, but I do not write it as well or as moving as other people do. I occasionally add/change a verse or so to make it fit the format of the music better. If you are interested, please send your poem to me at rachel.a@bigfoot.com  My only requirements are as follows-


- Long enough to make a song of, at least 5 verses, preferably more
- Preferably emotionally moving
- Have some sort of rhyming
- You don't mind of a few parts are changed

Please help me! Thank you!
-Rachel

Rachel,
I could help, if you are still in search...
If you are hunting still, the target is at sudhir_iyer@yahoo.com.

regards, sudhir




 My heart is pounding, my stomach's inside out
I'm feeling kind-a-shaky, my mind is full of doubt
All I ever think about, is fearing fear itself,
Wish I could unscrew my head and put it on the shelf
Everything is twisted, everything is oh so tight,
Don't know what I'm looking at, the lights are all too bright
My brain's about to crumble, spill out on the floor
Sweep 'em up. Throw 'em away, don't want 'em anymore
Clouds race across the sky, day turns into night,
Still there are the questions, no answers in sight
Everything is twisted, everything is oh so tight,
Starin' out the window, everything is just too bright
Brain's about to crumble, spill out on the floor,
Wish I could unscrew my head, and kick it out the door...
You know I'm feeling kind-a....Strange
You know I'm feeling kind-a....Strange
