"Nothing is impossible. The word itself says 'I'm Possible'"


All lined up against the wall
I see them and I know them all
Some, I note, I have forgot.
I don’t remember all the lot.
I come to one I do not know
She doesn’t seem to want to go.
I say to her, “I do not know you.”
She replies, “Oh yes you do.”
“Surely not, I do protest!”
she stands unmoving, waiting, lest…
I recognise her.
“You do. You do. You do”
She sings these words into my ear
Oh how sweet is that voice to hear.
“I really promise, indeed that you do.
You do, you do, for I… am you.

No critique, this is perfect. Your rhyming is on point.

*snaps resound out of true respect for poetic ability* I think you've captured the soul of rhyming poetry. Your rhythm is consistent, every line flows into the next, the dialogue is effortlessly interwoven, and I love the message! I'll be looking to read more. :)

Thanks! This actually wasn't meant to be a doctor who poem, but looking back, I suppose it could be. Anyway, I wrote a reply to t his poem called "who I was is not who I am." But also, if you want to read whovian things, I have a few fanfics on this site too :)

I love how it all fits together like that! You are a great poet and you know it! :) Fantastic! Allons-y! Geronimo! Lots of Doctor Who references! *smiles*
