20 minute Poem!

As I was sitting on my desk one night my friend rings me up with a small request. I was to write her a poem consisting of 20 lines that had to do with a certain topic she chose for me. Thinking about it for a while I asked what day she was expectin it and she answered tonight... being in a strange mood that night and having been seated on my desk already I took the challenge... I asked her to give me 20 minutes before calling back... by then I was supposed to write 20 lines of a topic : "Lost in the Desert"... all had to rhyme! ..... as soon as she set up her stopwatch and put down the phone, I started....
being 20 mins for 20 lines gave me a minute for each ... and so this was the outcome a few seconds before she called :os.

~Lost in the Desert~
Days pass by as hot as fire
Nights just pass out cold
Temperatures keep going higher
Here my tales unfold
Long's it been since last I felt
The wind of a morning breeze
It's where ice would slowly melt
Or else would slowly freeze
Here I am, in the endless heat
Under the burning sun
I walk on sand with two bare feet
Where distance grows as I run
The mounting dunes keep coming on
No signs of life appear
My walking strength has almost gone
And yet I had no fear
Though burning days and freezing nights
Could mean my end is near
It's always hope and countless fights
That make my ways turn clear
Tripletee
Don't ask for every meaning :os ..... I've written this in haste with absolutely no clue what I was getting to in the end... however as it turned out to be... hope it makes sense.. :o)

There are signs on the ring
which make me feel so down
there's one to enslave all rings
to find them all in time
and drive them into darkness
forever they'll be bound
Three for the Kings
of the elves high in light
nine to the mortal
which cry

Slow down and I sail on the river
Slow down and I walk to the hill

and there's no way out
Mordor
dark land under Sauron's spell
threatened a long time
threatened a long time

Seven rings to the gnomes
in their halls made of stone
into the valley
I feel down
One ring for the dark lord's hand
sitting on his throne
in the land so dark
where I've to go

Slow down and I sail on the river
Slow down and I walk to the hill
Lord of the rings

....That's a song..I like..by a power metal band. Power Metal music tends to sing about fictions such as Dragons and so on.

Your blog is informative,creative. The poem is nice...
