Urban Warfare

The sun is melting down into a cup of coffee.
Gray,weary rainbows of nicotine addiction
Are touching up the ceiling in a sublime decay.
Enlightened silence brings its own destruction

Forever missing the sanest of the noises,
It shuffles down a bare, cruel laughing
And folds itself by killing off a rumour,
A tingling rumour of some odd corruption.

The crowd of empty souls is building now its coffin
Without the slightest sense of logic,but with reason,
And with their health intact as they are coughing
A hunt begins for one that does not say.

For they have felt the way to that odd something...
To lead,not push,the darkened reason into gray.
This is a poem i wrote as a challenge from ~poetic-forms

It's a bref double a traditional french poetic form,for a more elaborated description see [link]

Hope you enjoy it.

Im not big on poetry that rhymes at all, but this wasnt bad.
A few pointers though..
I think it would look better if first word of the line wasnt capatalized,
unless it was the beginning of the sentence.. etc.

Good words though.. you put them together pretty nicely.

I cant seem to go this deep, with my poetry, it takes something vinigitive and warps it into emotion.
Very nice, I especially like "Without the slightest sense of logic,but with reason" It is descriptive, as I like it ;)

intense... very intense. I love the concept... the imagery... all laced together beautifully. Interesting poetic form... I might have to try that sometime. You don't really notice the rhyme... but somehow it makes it all fit together smoothly. One suggestion would be to play with the meter a little... I'm not exactly what type you went with... I'm pretty sure it wasn't iambic but I could be mistaken. Anyway... just a small suggestion to help an already wonderful poem. Awesome work!

I enjoyed feasting on the metaphors in your work. The structure is very ..romantic. I'd love to try it. I have never used proper structure in my life.. you've inspired me to start!

Best regards,George
