I was challenged to write a poem where the rhyme scheme didn't change at all. why? i don't know. we were bored.
at any rate
enjoy or don't. that's all up to you.

Come Around

Words cannot break, but yours break me down
Each sound that you make brings me to the ground
Slowly, my chest begins to pound
Simply when you come around
And all of this may seem profound
As you treat me like the lowly clown
Till you perfect world becomes unwound
When all is lost, I shall be found
In words of sweet and silent sound
In books that have never once been bound
Seek the comfort to invert your frown
From me each time you come around

  loved the first line..very good opening...lowly clown...that does seem a little strained, but like you said it was a challenge to keep the same rhyme it works..."in books that have never once been bound" thats a mouthful...this is pretty cool...good job

  Not bad as responses to challenges go. You've done an admirable job with the rhyme [far better than I could've]; nice work here.

  This was interesting, I think that using the rhyme scheme is coll, but you have too many filler words in between, You could use the end word to your advantage and make them more powerful by eliminating some of the junk words Ex: the of, it you and me...B
