[bgcolor=white]Day and Age
Whilst all the [green]neon tiger[/green]'s lay in grass of golden sheath, the taste of [green]human[/green] flesh a regal change to that of chase- they wait like silent whispers of hunger and biding time before they thrust with an irreparable and [green]crippling blow[/green]
A [green]joy ride[/green] into the abyss of unknown thirsts for the flesh, a salivating tongue is like stars to a [green]spaceman[/green], so beautiful the lust is too touch, for [green]this is your life[/green] what they breathe and believe in ravenousness moments;
The chase for something more in this [green]the world we live in[/green], a time to say [green]I can’t stay[/green] in [green]a dustland fairytale[/green] with no new tail to devour in heartless ire and curious tasteful yearning for blood, does this mean you’re [green]losing touch[/green], losing control-
Should we as creatures of desire and greed say [green]goodnight, travel wel[/green]l for the misery and effusive indignities of man should leave us with toothless mouths of sighing niceties, how could that possibly bring peace to this [green]day and age[/green]?

a true tale of this day and age, when everything even remotely good has strings attached and the tigers lay await for new victims to pounce on.
ps - at first when I saw this poem, I was using "Autumn" as my skin.. and except for your words in green.. everything in it was invisible.. Then I hit quote by mistake and I saw there was a poem here beyond the titles of the songs so I changed my skin to "desert" to read this.. Seems the problem lies with the fact you made your background "white" and by doing that, it changes the color of the fonts as well.. So if others are seeing your poem and it looks like minimal poetry.. it's not.. just change the skin your using and read and enjoy.
Dreams do come true, you just have to have faith in them.

Well, changing the bg color doesn't automatically change the fonts but if you change your background color you should manually change the color of fonts so they'll show up in all of the different skins.
And I think the song titles here were much harder to work with than the ones I chose. Great story with a moral slant and I adore some of the phrasing you chose, particularly
