    dotsThe peep frogsdots

    I didn't mean to make it so,
    In my awesome little lair,
    With my lighter and closed window,
    There was more smoke than air,
    And the frogs they were still making sounds,
    Peeping and cricketing, chirping away,
    Taking turns meeping, making their rounds,
    Buzzing and ribbeting like it were day.

    Peeping and chirping without a pause,
    Cover my head with a pillow,
    Stuff my ears with gauze,
    But the bullfrog will still bellow,
    And the peep frogs will still peep,
    The crickets will cricket,
    And the meepers will meep,
    Successfully keeping me from sleep.

    But the window is closed…
    And they're getting louder…
    Both the frogs, and the toads…
    Echoing listlessly into my head…
    And they're getting louder…
    All I ever wanted, was to go to bed…
    Ohh the pain inside my brain…
    They're getting louder…

    The peep frogs are going to drive me insane.

      I agree with wewak11, the noise and sounds build up is done very, very nicely. Great combining of different words for making noise - I think it made me felt a little of that insanity. The rhyme worked, but the rhythm was kinda off...If it isn't ment to be a freeversed poem, then it's just really bad to kill the rhythm for the rhyme! but if it is, then it isn't such a flaw - more of an advantage, all the asimetry gives the poem a unique twist. I especially liked the line: 'The peep frogs will still peep' - that's really good, but you kinda messed it up repeating the scheme in the next two lines (if you feel you have to repeat it, at least repeat it once, change the 3rd line), the last line of that stanza's also great!
    You CAN express your ideas, original ideas, and you do it in a unique way - really like that.
    Be well!

      I really enjoyed reading this it is so vivid and though i can't relate to the frogs as i can relate to the voices in my head as they are as loud and un-turn-off-able as anything else
    but i really did enjoy this poem
    Oh and one question...

      Haha! Very well done! This is almost a tragi-comedy, sad and funny at the same time.

    I like your execution, the rhyme worked pretty well, and the build up of noise and sounds was done very nicely.

    Can't really criticize, I liked it too much.

    Great work,

    Be Happy
