I went on a walk, along a long bare twisting road, out of their way
And then I came by my grave, with half-dried flowers on a white slate
This soul wanders free at last, now that my body has to stay
My first try on the six lined modern format of SijoHow does it feel, when someone sings your song? He never stole those words. He wrote them all The melody you found, those lyrics half formed The heart that broke, the tears that came on Now they come again as I hear my tune Far from my window as he sings his song…
And if you come knock my door now, I will clearly not ask you why I will breathe in this wild northern wind, I will scream to the clear blue sky With my life complete with the ones I love, I will slam this door shut
(II)My tears fall, I go on. Don’t hear my heart I so deny my soul I see you stand I don’t stop, when there you sit behind. I climb to the top I walk west and I walk straight. I walk this way to lead you astray.
Note: Sijo is not supposed to rhyme but I am not able to give it that musical quality until I don’t rhyme the lines, my apologies.. but it is more important to make it sing song :http://thenegativesign.wordpress.com/sijo/
