    That is a great point.

    Just a suggestion; maybe find someone near you that can help in person. It can be tough finding that collaboration on the internet if you do not have a setup to where you can sing or play.

    There is nothing better than sitting in a room with another musician and creating together.

    Online collaborations can and do work (I have tons of them that started here) but you really need to give some type of direction that are looking for first.

    Something as simple as a melody line to start.

    Hi I was thinking ballad style and pop. These would be my preferences, but even soft rock would be nice.

    Thanks, I do have some ideas, but as you say it would need someone who plays an instrument to bring it all together.

    Do you have any understanding of musical structure - or play any musical instrument?

    Hey, I'd like to collaborate on pop songs, ballads, soft rock... I haven't found anyone in my area who wants to collaborate so I'm still looking. Any pop writers out there wanna collaborate distance, Skype, etc?

    I just realized it's not so easy. The post looked great, but then i tried to fit the words into a couple of my ideas. I've always had music first, and filled it in last with lyrics. The poem is good, but not enough words on the verse, and too many words on the chorus (2nd paragraph). Maybe i was looking for something written like a song with verses and a repeating chorus. I wish you luck, but honestly, this isn't as easy as i thought. Maybe because music was always first in my process. Good luck with it.

    Hi Damian, thanks for reply. I hope I find someone who'd be interested. I'd like to collaborate - so shoot ideas around and come up with something attractive. I understand that poems aren't songs but I hope to be able to bring music to them with longer verses among other things.

    For me, your words would make a reasonable foundation for a song, but there would be a lot of messing around with them to make fit into the conventional song formats that I would use. They would end up being almost unrecognisable.

    Maybe if you craft your poems so that they consist of chunks that could evolve into verses, choruses and hooks?

    Hey Gecko,

    How are you? This is a sample one I quickly drafted today:

    you are my sunrise,
    dawn in my day,
    ocean of dreams.

    You bring hope
    to my despair,
    every day in a year.

    you are the bond
    which tightly binds
    threads in this heart.

    you are my summer
    and now my winter,
    my seasons for all time.

    Please give me your opinion. I'd appreciate any feedback. Thanks
