A/N: Not really good at rhyme but thought I'd give it a go, critques are always welcome!

what dreams we sing
on a starry night
the melody carries
a sorrowful flight

full of anger
tugging grief
doubt and sorrow
without relief

into the dark
our cares take wing
soaring high
an awesome thing

who am I
that it is true
the Maker takes note
when we are blue

Yes, we are graced
considered fair
and take our troubles
to Him in prayer

Well, a good start. Rhyme can be complex and what I noticed is that .. the last set got into the realm of sounds the same but looks different. I enjoy those most of all.

Did you feel my rhyme was forced?

true blue
The hardest thing and tantamount to driving over a cliff poetically is those too easy rhymes - probably because so many songs in the late and early 1900 hundreds used true/blue moon/spoon kiss/miss love/dove - sold a lot of sheet music to the unsophisticated - there is no accident that Hallmark carries on that tradition. Not that it's bad or poor form- it's just that we heard them so much and because of that overuse it's like fingernails on a chalk board. Besides we are, of course, poetically snobbish and want our peers to work a bit on the rhymes (If we are truthful!) Although I will occasionally write a June/moon/spoon/soon song! ;) Give it another go!

@Lucie and Ken
I think your right about the rhyme being forced. See this is what I love about this site, we're not afraid to be honest and challenge each other.

This piece came out of me almost completely whole. In fact, the only rhymes I had to think about were (drum roll please...) true/blue and wing/thing. LOL, great call Lucie!!!!

Thank you both for the critque, I'll give this one another go and see if i can be a bit more...inventive.

Much Love,
