"There it goes"  
So it's brigits_flame time again.

The last time I wrote poetry was, if memory serves, almost exactly a year ago. I just don't do poetry much, because it always sounds kind of juvenile to me when I'm done, and I don't tend to like it. But I was contemplating the prompt last night, abject and computerless, and my brain started throwing words at me. No clue why they decided to be these ones, and I didn't want to force them to try to be any others. Mea culpa. XD

Thanks as always to eltea for looking it over. :) The prompt was that it had to start with the words "There it goes."

There -- it -- goes --

The right, the wrong, the siren song;
The crystal nonsense words;
The shards of glass through which we pass;
The soaring flightless birds.

The truth, the lie, the screaming sigh;
The whisper in the wood;
The nightfall holds its orange folds
As we all wish we could.

The cautious haste, the grateful waste;
The corners of the ring;
The clock that stops, the tearing drops;
Absurd, and everything.

Good job! Very nice! I never do poetry that rhymes so I am very impressed when others do that! Nicely done. Good luck...
