Some girls are so lucky to have a giant
Hers came with thunder and brought smoke into the house
His face was full of canyons,
         and she knew that little people explored there
But Lord knows what happens when children live in the shadows of giants.
They get stepped on.
“I can’t do it anymore. I give up.”

Giants are good friends;
They know witches and are loved by cats
They have so many stories to tell little girls
         and she listened so very intently
But Lord knows what happens when children live in the shadows of giants.
They can dream of other magical things.
“Only witches like you and your grandma can charm cats like that.”

Giants are generous creatures, more generous than humans.
They bring trees into homes, and
Put aside riches for the future
         She couldn’t see the money then, but she’d need it soon
But Lord knows what happens when children live in the shadows of giants
They believe they have it all.
“A very merry tree just for you Munchkin.”

Giants have large eyes and large mouths
They see things they don’t like
They speak hurtful things
         But she knew those things were to help her.
Lord knows what happens to children who live in the shadows of giants
They begin to freeze
“You should stop eating.”

Giants can’t tell when they’ve crushed something beneath them.
They continue to walk alone without notice
Nothing matched their gape before
         But she couldn’t run fast enough to catch up.
But Lord only knows what happens to children who live in the shadows of giants
They get left behind
“You’re not my granddaughter. I can’t deal with you anymore.”

Giants learn lessons slowly, more slowly than humans.
They are gone for years and years
Before returning to try again,
         But she learned quickly
Lord knows what happens to children who live in the shadows of giants
They tremble when it’s loud.
“I’m trying here Mercedes, you need to stop being so touchy.”

Giants deserve to be forgiven more than others
They don’t see where their large feet go
They can’t cease the smoke from choking their loved ones
         Still she wanted to love him.
But Lord only knows what happens to children who live in the shadows of giants
They grow up lonely
“Hey there Munchkin. Long time no see.”

I am so lucky to have a giant
Mine came with thunder and brought smoke into the house
His face was full of canyons,
         But I knew that horrible ghosts lived there
And Lord knows what happens when children live in the shadows of giants.
You see, I got stepped on.
Your presence makes my stomach upset.
I can't explain the sudden
unrest which
keeps me coiled and my eyes
wet
Words are heavier than lead. This weight
on my chest is enough to crack my courage
Yet,
there you are, bringing it down
against my shoulders.
Every word thought and word taken, only to
regret.

Moxious roars, echoe into my grey toned visions,
They paint my breath, they are slaves

I'm not quite sure. 
What sort of things are you comfortable with / it's a free topic, anything you're feeling strongly about?
Hi! It's nice to meet you by the way.

Nice to meet you too! :D
Topically, I prefer light-hearted stuff to the darkness i.e love, seasons, holidays, humor...
Style-wise, I usually write rhyming quatrains, but this round is free verse so that's out the window...
And I feel strongly like experimenting with something new, fun, and challenging.

Any ideas?

That's so great because I tend toward the dark stuff ><
And freestyle is kind of my thing.

I was thinking of something along the lines of a conversation. 
That way we aren't writing two distinct stanzas, but it's all woven together. 
One person's text with be bold and the other italicized or something. 
Perhaps a back and forth between the sun and moon?
Or maybe love letters between Lithium and Fluorine on the periodic table of the elements? Ever stanza is a letter until they finally bond and become Neon?
Maybe we could have a rap battle!! Get on a google doc so the responses are in real time and 'rap' at each other about whatever. 

I'm sorry. These ideas are so lame ><
