Can we try that again?  Just for me???  *hopeful smile*  
All the phrases, submitted under that challenge by Poet DeVine really really helped me get out from under a writers block and from falling into a rut.

Can all of you throw out a phrase or two?



"I can't remember if I'm the good twin or the evil one."

Remember softly, my love is stirred

Dragon fire, hero's quest

Coffee craze me, I'm aware

Geesh..don' ask me where I come up with this stuff...   Hope this helps.

I am bound by this, you see...to become Night's sole mistress, and I am jealous in my endeavours for his attention.

This one is one which I came up with while listening to a CD of musical scores.  Anyhow, I figured this would be a really powerful last line in a tragic poem or story.  I plan to use it in one of my own major projects, but I'm sure it won't kill me if I share it here for others to use as well, not that it's all that original:

"Forgive me mother, for I have failed you."

Here are a couple others that i've just come up with now, lol:

What has been demanded has come about

We are the last, and the beginning

"If history is to change, let it change. If the world is to be destroyed, so be it. If my fate is to die, I must simply laugh"

Your love is like chunky peanut butter
Sometimes it's Skippy, sometimes Jif
you think you're Peter Pan but
that only causes a tif.

I am smooth and you are nuts
but together we make a good blend
who says we can't live together
stuck to the roof of life till the end

(I know it stinks!! LOL)

I knew that I'd find you. . .

Lost on this dancefloor. . .

Slipping into your dreams. . .

This moment of my life. . .

Wow. . .can I borrow some of these???

To the world, you may only be one person. But to one person, you may be the world.

Chunky spread on thick
Blended with strawberry me
What a tasty treat

WOOHOO Mike

LOL and now for some lines

Wishful dreaming

Finding the key to me

Alone amidst your memory

Once upon a summers evening

Throw me a lifeline

I wrote a poem using the phrase "lost in twilight hues" and posted it in teen. If anyone cares, it's there to read. These phrases are great. I will try to get back with some of my own later, but I have to go now. Bye.

within this life I found you

Never knew what it would be
Never knew what life held
I thought I was forgotten
No where to turn or hide
I thought love passed me by
Life was a miserable and
Aimless string of days
I just wanted to be over
I was searching for an end
Life held nothing for me
Until you came to into it
Turned my life right around
And my searching was ended
The good had finally returned
And I could smile once again
I never knew love existed until
Within this life I found you.

"Generation X"

You look down on us
The forgotten children
End of a century
And bringers of anew
You fear us
We see it in your eyes
Yet you curse us
You call us lazy
Yet we work hardest
Your salvation relies
On children in a world
Of hate and violence
Thrown in front of a tv
From the beginning
Because it kept us quiet
Given medicine like
Ritalin, because you
Didn't feel like putting up
With us
We have been taught
To hate those who
Are different and yet
We know our strength
Lies in our adversity
We continue to grow
Stronger with each day
And we are beginning
To prove you wrong
Not by violence,
Like you showed us
But by suceeding
In all that we do.
We are the last
Of a century's
Children.
We are the first
In a whole line of
Fighters, Thinkers
And Workers,
The likes of which
This country has
Never seen.
We are the last,
And the beginning.

Thanks for the inspiration
~Susie
