    While I sleep the city cries
    You won't find your lover here
    She's moved

    away To where every street
    Littered with broken glass
    Reflects the light of home

    And the broken bottles are tuned
    To a scale
    That makes the wind sing like summer

    As a choired voice
    In this draughty cathedral
    Where the candles stay lit

    In constant vigil
    Even though I don't believe
    It will make a blind bit of difference

    I still trace the stained glass
    Back to that chapel on the hill
    Where it wouldn't stop raining

    It never stops raining
    Tainting the windows sepia by streetlight
    Bursting the curb side rivers banks

    Filling my house
    With dreams of estuary towns
    Don't wake me up

    no problem man. I haven't seen this style in some time, and never here.
    does it have a name? or were you just messing with different syllable counts?

    bump for interest in good material..**
