Shame ~Borrow the Lyric Challenge~ Creator’s Poem

I started to think
“When we lie to each other”,
We lose the emotion that we long to keep
And when we die for each other,
This is when the ends meet.
Our reflection in the snow,
We’ll lose it in the sun.

In the face of all the shame,
We’ll take it as it came.

If it’s a matter of you or her,
We both know whose losing it all.
Mother, will you catch me when I fall?
Catch me when I fall
‘Cause I can’t take it anymore.

Last time I did,
I fell to the floor
And the bruises hurt
So much more.


The quoted verse is from; Still Waters Run Deep by the Bee Gees.

The above is a part of a challenge; The “Borrow” the Lyric Challenge

The rules are;
You need to choose a verse from a song and use it in an original poem or story.
You must include the name of the song and the singer at the end.
You need to challenge someone else and invent ONE rule they need to follow.
You must credit the person who started this challenge (a.k.a. PJ) and the person who challenged you.
You must include the rules of this challenge.

A brief description of what you need to do: The person who challenged you has included a new rule you must follow. Using this rule you need to find a verse from a song and use it as inspiration for a poem or story. The song and singer from which the verse originates from must be included somewhere in your post, in or out of the story/poem is your choice 😊

If need be, do not hesitate to contact the creator for help!

I am challenging the talented Nour Lee and my extra rule is; You need to choose a verse from an Opera song.

ALSO: This poem is a sort of “Chapter 1” to a new series.

      1. I’m glad you do! By the way, the series I was talking about at the end was the book thing that you suggested I post! Can’t wait for your Opera-lyric-poem 😊
