Distracted's five words: Warmth, Stars, Tears, Lips, Toothpaste

When toothpaste attains the warmth of stars
With all humanity forced to reside on Mars
For dead Earth’s oceans have boiled away
Human tears cannot the sun’s expansion stay
And lips whisper this is but a few years reprieve
For soon the entire system humanity must leave

The next five words: Logic, Stolen, Sky, Sea, rabbit

"everyone Happily Paired" is Malcolm, right?
"Beyond Reason" has to be Masaro.
"Me and the Sundered"... is it V'Las?
Your "Untitled POV Challenge Poem"... is it Forrest griping about Soval? : )
I love this Linda! A Vulcan might reminisce... just think about what it'd have been like IF T'Pol could've met Trip when she was in her 30's, hehe.
That's delightful!:D Your poetic touch is very considerable. I remember another poetry that delighted me: [b]This Thing Called Love[/b]. Beautiful! Very beautiful! :p
