Poefusion prompt

The Darkest Season

i dream a highway,
tomorrow is a long time.
i get a little lonely,
jealous of the moon,
when it don't come easy.
i want to sing, feeding
the angels afternoons,
language or the kiss.
we've gone so far,
i have lost my dreams.
how will he find me,
one night gone.
tenderness, comfort
forgiveness. Are you
out there?


this was a poefusion prompt to write a poem consisting only of movie titles, i switched it up a little and made mine only of song titles. thanks to these fine artists, in order of appearance, Deb Talan, Gillian Welch, Pete and J, Nickel Creek, Patty Griffin, Lori McKenna, Regina Spektor, Indigo Girls, Nicole Reynolds, Dar Willams, Deb Talan, Brianna Lane, Deb Talan, and Dar Williams.

Great job, Leigh! I really like how you used the song titles. And, it even made sense. Thanks for giving this one a try. Have a nice day.

Leigh, I don't know enough titles of anything to do this, but I really enjoyed reading yours. I would love to read another one if you ever do it.

I know a couple of the song titles. But that did not matter. The poem flowed beautifully and I could hear the music!
