    I'm drifting off tonight
    writing lullabies
    for you I'll sing
    Im drifting off
    writing your diamond ring

    This ship I built with my hands
    to ferry me along
    it's just a fact

    I'll embrace this October night
    following the north star
    don't call me Ahab
    it's not vengence I seek

    I'll build our home with my hands
    Dress the walls with my words
    but first you have to accept
    this diamond ring I wrote
    not a demand
    just a fact

      I guess Up-N-Aroused hasn't read as many of your poems as I have. =P Nah, I'm teasing. Well, what I take from this is something of an ultimatum, and I dig it.

      The last stanza is gorgeous. Very romantic. I like the last line - "not a demand / just a fact" - if she doesn't accept your ring, there'll be no foundation to build on. Simple as that. Great job.

      Oh yeah-it should be "vengeance." And about your description-I don't think the last two lines need any work at all. Maybe just some punctuation, if it wouldn't take away from the matter-of-factness of the lines.

      I agree with you about letting go of the first two stanzas. The way you've incorporated them later in the poem comes across much better. Fix the typo in "vengance" and take out "it's" in the last line and you have yourself a brilliant poem!

      Wow. This is an awesome piece. You know how to use words to paint a picture and make the reader feel what you're feeling. Truly wonderous. *smattering of applause*

      Nice peace, full of love and devotion. Style is somehow "out of time"-I like that.
    The idea of diamond ring is a cliché but you with your idea of writing it kind of change it all.
    Goog work.

      wow... i completely love this... i love the writing a diamond ring... when i read the title all i could think of was the song about how the diamond ring doesnt sing coz his girl left him so im heaps glad that this poem is a nice happy sounding one ish. i love how you have presented this too... very well done! i like the ending myself... the 'its not a demand its a fact' you cant make someone love you back but that doesnt mean that you wont keep loving them i guess... yeah... i like this!
