Question

Guest

Where were you when the world stopped turning—

Or did it stop for you?

Were you red, or white, or pink,

Or were you merely blue?

Did you think it coincidence,

Or portent of something greater?

Was it good or was it bad,

Did it turn you from lover to hater?

Did the world then right itself,

And could you then move on?

Did it change the way you saw yourself;

Is part of you now gone?

Where were you then—

Where are you now?

What happened when the spinning stopped,

And is it spinning now?

___

I know this one is much easier with all four lines, but it seemed too pretty to cut up. I hope you like it as much as I do! :)

Congratulations on the first one, but the second one is on an entirely different track.

My first reply is much the same

I will not now a new clue name

Remember it's a different track

The second answer still we lack

Your answers have all missed the mark

Not even in the same ballpark

But thanks for trying to divine

The answer that I had in mind.

not bulimia, nothing to do with love (read the first reply and my reply to it); clues to come over the weekend when I have more time.

:)

you are sort of on the right track... I have something more specific in mind, though.
