    The Miracle of Death

    The miracle of death is precise like the law.
    Our bodies will decompose in their natural elements.
    Perhaps we'll meet as underground streams,
    as humus and salt at the roots of a plant
    that will flourish and open its petals,
    astounding everything with its anonymous beauty.
    Our bones will blossom . . . .

    ...............................................*But the souls?
    poor aerial creatures, they'll wander the clouds,
    forever separate and never whole.

    I was wondering if anybody knew of any way to... 'feel'... iambic pentameter. I've been trying to do different forms, and a sonnet is what I thought of first, but I'm having trouble with iambic pentameter. I know what it is, definition-wise, but it's hard to 'feel' it... do you know what I mean? Can anybody help?

    Bashing through the forest
    never felt so hopeless
    Where are you MJ?
    somewhere out there, are you ok?

    I miss your scent
    I long for your rants
    Your presence
    give me assurance

    Come back to me
    your face I want to see
    all your features too
    I miss you.

    This is supposed to be the rythm workshop? I dont see much point in extracting literature from cutting yourself or pooping in front of crowds. I just thought this would be hosted by someone from the site. Take care, everyone.
