This poem is an idea;
This poem talks about love.
This poem is a silver bullet.

This poem is open to numerous ideas;
Ideas are water and ideas are wings.
Ideas somewhat can humble a being;
Ideas shall help fulfill our dreams.
Ideas no matter how odd or even;
Flow through mind like river stream.

This poem talks about aspects of love;
I heard that love is a battlefield.
It requires a certain amount of hope;
Through difficult times we learn to cope.
For love is but a growing garland;
Its not for sale nor up for bargain.

This poem is like a silver bullet;
Aiming straight towards the heart.
Sooner or later the clouds shall part;
In constant stars we read such art.
Inspiring us all to reach out and touch;
To believe in oneself right from the start.

This poem has spoken about ideas;
This poem strives to honor love.
This poem has shot a silver bullet.

    Really enjoyed “In constant stars we read such art.
    Inspiring us all to reach out and touch;
    To believe in oneself right from the start”

    Our own self doubt can do us in, a monster perhaps more fearsome than a werewolf (of which silver bullets are supposed to be able to kill )

    I like the lines about “Ideas are water and ideas are wings.” they certainly can take you anywhere. just like how a poem can be interpreted in many ways. (I am still wondering, why a silver bullet?) πŸ™‚
