SapphireIris: This was the first joint poem between me and MOBC, and it's really the one that inspired this collection. another cc came in on it later in a Renga we were doing.

MyOwnBestCritic: I love this one. I came up with the "raven dusk" and "closed my heart," parts. I was feeling a little angsty that day. Oh well. -

The Silence of the Rhyme (SapphireIris, MyOwnBestCritic)

Know to always keep in time

With the silence of the rhyme

It follows then and orders well

closed my heart and then it fell

That raven dusk so sweetly asks,

Why not drop it, break the glass?

My only secret you will find

In the silence of the rhyme.
