5 CIHTD?: Traffic Light ("It's over!")

Title:  Red Light
Artist:  David Nail
Album:  I'm About to Come Alive
Genre:  Country

Notes:  I mentioned in my last post I wanted to write about traffic lights....  So I went out and found a song that had a traffic light in it to lend inspiration for this week's CIHTD?.

A Form Aside:  Over at dVerse Poets Pub they have introduced a short little number called the cinquain.  I thought I'd give it a whirl.  I'm not the only if you get a chance, check out some of the talents that chose to walk through the pub doors for this event.

Traffic Light ("It's Over")
stopped dead
blood drains with words
no liesno fightjust words
crashing down. light turns green; still I
can't move.


  1. nice...really cool...evocative and somewhat lyrical as well...

    really like the second line...and the crashing down....

  2. this is's not about the outside green light we need, it's about the inside green light? right?

  3. Perfectly to form and really intense - just words crashing down ... and still I can't move - those are powerful phrases.

  4. wow, that is a tough one ourselves permission to do or not do something ;_)

  5. That last line, can't move, tells a evokes a powerful emotion ~

    Good job on the form ~
