Traditionally spoken in the present tense, lyric poems typically express personal (often emotional) feelings. Usually expressing the feelings of the poet, was the dominant poetic form in America, Europe, and the British colonies, in the early years of the 20th century rhymed lyric poetry. By its musicality, you can usually identify a lyric poem. Lyric poems were in fact sung to the strums of an accompanying lyre, in ancient Greece and Rome. Modern examples of lyric poetry often have specific rhyming schemes. Modern forms are sometimes set to music or a beat, and Greek lyric poetry was defined by its musical accompaniment.  

"Listen to the Lyrics..."
by: Corey Corum

Listen to the Lyrics as they lead you into Temptation..
Listen to the Lyrics as they bring you no Salvation
Listen to the Lyrics to show you how you're growing weak
Listen to the Lyrics to close your vision and stare at your feet
Listen to the Lyrics that remind you of the girl
Listen to the Lyrics that tell you she was your world
Listen to the Lyrics because they remind you of her it seems
Listen to the Lyrics because everything isn't just a dream
Listen to the Lyrics to know that it really happened
Listen to the Lyrics to know without her your hearts flattened
Listen to the Lyrics and turn of the treble and the bass
Listen to the Lyrics and let them remind you of her beautiful face
Listen to the Lyrics that bind you into chains
Listen to the Lyrics that warm the blood that runs through your veins
Listen to the Lyrics as they warm the tempo of the heart
Listen to the Lyrics as memories never let you apart
Listen to the Lyrics the way you would her words
Listen to the Lyrics the way she treated you, so obsurd
Listen to the Lyrics wether a piano, guitar, what does it matter
Listen to the Lyrics wether it instruments it can make your heart shatter
Listen to the Lyrics as you make unintended sins

Listen to the Lyrics as this vast poem becomes to an end
