How does writing intrigue you? It inspires me to communicate more freely, to be true to and express myself in a way that goes beyond the mere spoken word. In short, writing intrigues me on a level which transcends verbal explanation. I feel very connected to it.
Why are you interested in Dream Poet?: I want to connect with other writers on LiveJournal and hopefully learn new things along the way! =D I'd also like to publicize my creations. =)

"Nothing Compares To You"

Still Earth
The breeze that sweeps across the hills
Breathes no longer
Its whispering silence hushed
Like snowflakes falling in the night

Flower petals falling
Gently caress the ground
Their pleasant fragrance rising
In the air without a sound
Call the senses loudly

Softly now the waters sigh
Sinuous they flow
Within my hands it dwells not long
But gives cool refreshment like a song
Its harmony beckons, wild and free

See the horizon
Golden fire splitting the sky
Soft as a butterfly's wing
It lulls the world to reflection
And the mind to silent reverie

The stillness of twilight paints the sound
Of majestic brilliance in my eyes
Awakening a thousand desires
And filling my soul with dazzling surprise
Sheer amazement seizes me

But none of this compares
In any amount of measurement
To the breathtaking beauty I see
When I look at you,
Masterpiece of Creation

Resplendent visage delights my eyes
Each time I behold you
And what I feel when you are near
Is impossible to describe
Ambience undefined

The more I look the harder it is to see
Anything else that compares to your beauty
For there is nothing in all the world
That is more wonderful than you
I wouldn't tell you if it wasn't true

Like wild horses that ride into the sunset
You are indescribable
And as the trees lift their gilded arms to embrace the sky
So I wrap my arms up around your neck
And drink in your presence

And as the moon rises in the velvet sky
Like a pearl in the ocean
I melt in your arms
And in the still of the night I come to realize
You are the reason I am alive

I don't even care that you forgot to thoroughly read the rules, that was too good for me to not approve.
