Why is る dropped

September 2014

I can't figure out why る is occasionally dropped (at least in songs and anime). Is it the imperative form or slang or something else?

Here's some examples from my lingq imports. I put square brackets [ ] around the words with the dropped る and the english translation.

空からの優しさに[だかれ]... I am [embraced] by the kindness from the sky

[凍え]そうな躯(からだ)と This [frozen] body and

また灯(ひ)が一つ落[とされ] Once again, another light has [fallen]

どうか [見逃して [くれ] Please [overlook] me

Thanks in advance
