A kiss, sweet mother
Could I obtain
The touch from you
For which I strain

For to hear your voice
As soft as rain
Would give new life
Like planted grain

A kiss, sweet mother
Would be so kind
For I fear I'm running
Out of time

To feel your words
Inside my mind
And know that I'm
Not left behind

A kiss, sweet mother
To end this pain
Lest the silence
Drives me insane
A tribute to Cicero. :heart:
Set as a prayer to the Night Mother, before his madness.
I am very tired right now. :sleepy:
Hope you guys enjoy! :D

Thank you! :hug:
This is probably one of the best poem I've ever done.
Cicero is great inspiration for me, considering for my writing style. XD

It definitely does sound like something Cicero would say.
Nicely done! :3

I tried to imagine it in his voice, and it scared me. :D

Yeah, it is pretty scary.

But, mostly, I felt pity for the jester as I read the poem.
It really depicts what he actually is like, deep down inside.
Homicidal clown on the exterior; but at heart, an equally insane individual who just needs somebody to love...and to love him back! xP

I didn't realize before I wrote the poem that Cicero probably was worried that the Night Mother had abandoned him. He probably felt inadequate since he could not be listener, or he did not keep her well enough so she could not speak. She would not speak to him even though there was no one else to choose from. That must have been horrible. TT_TT

I'm really glad that you saw so much in my poem. :blushes: For some reason when I look at Cicero, I see a man using humor to hide his feelings. He is crazy, yes, but I don't think he is as crazy as he pretends.

Well, let's just say I sympathize with him a lot.
I'm no psycho-killer, but I tend to unintentionally annoy people with being loquacious and overly cheerful or affectionate at the wrong times. xP
That, added to the fact that I have just a handful of actual friends I hardly get to talk with, and someone I once considered my best friend just abandoned me a while back...
I relate a little too much to Cicero. It's creepy how much his character actually speaks to me. x__x;

...Sorry for pouring my heart out like that, by the way. But I saw it as a good example of how I relate to the Fool of Hearts.

I'm sorry that happened to you. I also make people very annoyed, just from talking. When I was little, I talked so much that it felt like people were constantly yelling at me to shut up, for for I while, I stopped talking altogether. And at school, when I did talk, the teachers yelled at me for being too quiet. Like I was intentionally disrespecting them by having a soft voice. I don't know what to do about people. Even people I deeply care about, I'm afraid to tell them how I feel about things if it different from their own opinion. I'm afraid I'll annoy them so I stop talking. I was so afraid of being wrong that I decided to do nothing, so nothing could be wrong. It was really childish, but I still catch myself doing it sometimes.

I love Cicero because he is crazy, but effective. And when I was depressed and lonely, I also used madness as an escape. Not intentionally, but looking back that's what I did. I laughed at my sorrows, and used humor to ignore them. Some people say I'm crazy, but if I'm happy, and that's what I want. :D
