Your mind's in knots, as stress plagues thoughts. On hope you cling, to bloom like Spring. Its fine my dear, nerves can cause fear. Don't be so scared, gifts must be shared. Your smile is cute, when you are mute. No need to hide. I'm by your side. Let the world hear, your tone so clear. Your will is strong, burst out your song. Sweet sounds you make our breaths they take. Look how eyes beam, your name they scream. Go to that length, love is your strength. Your voice brings peace, helps fears to cease. Like sad trapped birds, tongue holds back words. Free them from cage, take to the stage. When your heart sings, charms like harp strings. Look how they dance, as your tunes trance.
Silent One 31 January 2018 Another example for 128 words contest. Rhyme poem. Four words per line all one syllable each. 32 lines: 128 words.

I really am enthused. Your words are cute. Trust me I'm seduced. I'm pretty sure I've met my guardian angel. And I'm stuck in this your very angle. Bless me , without your blessings I ain't going nowhere. For someone like you I've searched everywhere .I'm pleased to have met you right here. I'm new and I really need your help. I've asked for help and guidance from many others on this platform, but they all seem not to heed my plea.

The compelling content of your poem is endearing and so very beautiful Silent One. The four word per line, one syllable per word constraint doesn't dampen your creativity at all. Your poetic prowess is impressive my friend.. ~Susan
