Borrow The Lyrics, Challenge!!!!

Thanks to my dear friend Jessica E. Larsen for this nomination… Querida, I have to say that this challenge is quite interesting and unique… And thanks to your rule I have to change my first selection (“Sorrow” by The National) Jajajajajaj

As always I encourage everyone to visit Jessica’s blog! It is quite amazing… There you can find the beautiful words from a helpless romantic (and dreamer) and the astonishing work of an accomplished writer…
Here is the link:

I hope I’m doing this correctly… I’ve chosen this song because it has inspired me so many things through many many stages of my life. From late 1991 “Drain you” By Nirvana.

“One baby to another says, “I’m lucky to met you”
I don’t care what you think unless it is about me
It is now my duty to completely drain you
I travel through a tube and end up in your infection”

My Poem:
I’m lucky to meet you

“I travel through a tube and end up in your infection”
If you could only go savagely round our affection
“It is now my duty to completely drain you”
And tear out your heart from its perfect and crystal clear blue
“I don’t care what you think unless it is about me”

We are much more of what we dare to see
“One baby to another says”, “I’m lucky to meet you”
But I tend to mumble instead of saying “I’m lucky too”
I’m lucky to meet you… At least for this instance
To feel with every inch of my reflection your powerful resonance
I’m lucky to meet you… From your splendid heart, through your bad moments
I have high hopes… Maybe with a kiss, we can endure the bad omens…
Nevertheless, I’m lucky to meet you… Because I have your poisonous perfume running through my veins…
Only, we know how this may end… With a waisted life, just like Cobain’s

Rules (as copied from the creator):

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

*My rule:

Use a song that uses the word “dream” or “dreams” amongst its lyrics.

I’ll love to make this an open challenge! Be free, write, enjoy!

    Love poem cariño ❤ I have to admit the only thing I know about is "Smells Like Teen Spirit" which is actually also my favorite.

    Love the piece you wrote based on the Lyric, though I have a bit hard understanding the singing of Nirvana without reading the lyrics, but it's good too 🙂

    Thank you so much for your kind words, for taking the challenge and for introducing that heartfelt song from The National. You could have been a rebel and chose it you know. My rule was not set on stone hehehe
