The Blackbirds Song - Poem by Alyssa Lynn

Blackbird blackbird, sing a song for me, “I wouldn’t dare not while I’m in this tree”. Blackbird blackbird tell me a story of mountains and dragons and princes with glory “I wouldn’t dare to tell you such a tale too simple, too complex too much of the best I wouldn’t dare to say such a thing.”

Blackbird, blackbird tell me of you are you angel or devil, are you dreams come true? “I’d tell you the answer if I dared, but the truth is the answer makes me not care.” Blackbird blackbird why do you lie for I know what truth lies behind those eyes? “Why dare to ask questions that have no end, at one point why not just pretend.”

Blackbird blackbird, what is it you hide, is it love, is it sadness, can it be changed, can it be forgiven, can it be forgotten can I do something …..Anything? “I wouldn’t dare reply for the answers I still don’t hold, and last time I checked something’s can’t be told.”

    Haha a very daring work to say the least :) . I like the dialogue format you wrote it in. I can definitely put myself into this one. I just had a thought, if I'm Snoopy, and you're a BlackBird, does that make you my Woodstock? LoL. But anyway, on a less dork-filled note, I like how it asks the same questions I have and still continue to even though the answers escape the both of us. I can give this poem an 8.7 easily but I say we keep things simple and give it a nine :)   (Report) Reply
