Post  Warchamp7 on Fri Oct 08, 2010 6:37 am

Off shoot of the lonely hearts and whatever thread, post poetry here.

I'll kick off the thread with one I just wrote on the spot.
(Which I had to rewrite off of memory because I accidentally hit the back button before)



I search for you, I long to see
Those emerald eyes stare back at me
I meet your gaze, the moments passed
You look right through, I'm made of glass

I'm there for you when things go wrong
Each word you speak it's own small song
Your voice like diamonds, crystal clear
Time seems to pause when you are near

Yet when we part, it's gone too fast
Each precious moment seems not to last
Time drips away like ruby blood
My perfect gem in a sapphire flood

I prefer haikus
Because they are so easy
I am hungry now

Haikus are easy
But sometimes they don't make sense

I can write haikus
With great skill and wisdom
Don't eat yellow snow

Poetry is a waste,
I think.
There's little skill, just flowery
language
and the ability to write in
Short
Sharp
Sentences.
You feel your pain,
pouring like waterfalls onto the page.
You feel release and pride
but it will only come back
and embarass you
when you're older.

Poems can be long and confusing,
But limericks are quick and amusing.
A fast little rhyme,
That takes little time,
But with a framework that some are abusing.

i prefer free verse,
a way you can get things out,
without being constricted by rhyme or rhythm.
i can show the world my thoughts,
my feelings,
in a way that is constructive,
and to the point.

Free form is fine to express,
But limericks are not such a mess.
The lines are restricting,
Also eliciting,
A sense of order, more or less.

I don't know much about writing,
And poems leave me writhing.
I think poems need to rhyme,
but writing them takes too much time.

reading them is fine,
but the writing, it's pleasure will never be mine.

silent thoughts-
drifting on our minds, makes us do what we do.
giving life to the words we use.
Why try? why is the sky blue?
We do not know the things we think of.
Life is not something to be wasted.
make the best of what you have.
live a little.
Explore out from under your rock.
break the chains, see the light.
The future is up to you.
Make it bright.

I prefer Shakespearean Sonnet
I am kinda snobby like that
But I am to cut for time
to write such a rhyme
Perhaps I'll use limmerick instead......

First five syllables
Then seven more Syllables
Last, five syllables

I believe you have
My red Swigline stapler
Please give it back now

When I read haiku
I read them in the voice of
William Shatner

Whatever goes up
Must, because of gravity
come back down again

I'm sick and tired
Of writing these lame haikus
So now I will stop

I find that free verse
is pretentious and wanky
so I use haiku

I can't write poems
because I am not creative
isn't that just sad

I analyse them
and all I can come up with
is that I want sleep.

I want to sweep you off your feet,
but you planted them in stone.
Left no room for love to grow,
and so I'll wither here alone

To Be Numb.

I want to be numb,
it makes me feel free,
but you won't understand because your not me.
Not being in my mind,
leaving my head, losing reason,
is the absolute best.
No one knows how I feel,
about not feeling,
and what I receive from not thinking.
I want to sever those ties from emotions,
and just stand there as one person.
Not bombarded by an array of confusion,
but immersed in a pool of seclusion.

I love not feeling, the relief it brings, to not think is the best.
I want deeply to leave the rest.

Here's 1 I just wrote, basically I have a collection agency/lawyer after me and I don't have the money to pay them. It has worn out, to the point where at least once I day I think of blowing my brains out. So here's my way of coping.


Payment

Silently a man begins to pray
Hoping that it’ll all just go away
This debt, to be paid in full
Has repo’d his very soul

Once his life was so simple
When his only fear was that, of a pimple
Those days are now long gone
Because everything has gone so wrong

As he wallows in his pain and sorrow
He can’t see a brighter tomorrow.
That night as he lays to rest
He let’s his spirit fail the test

I saw you today
But you just walked away
I guess here, I'll stay
You don't know me anyway.

Others all around me, Others in my head.
Others take the pain away, with happiness instead.
Others have their own world, they roam, they are free.
Oh, to be an Other, but me an Other I cannot see.
Others feel no sadness, Others feel no pain.
Others are their own selves, time and time again.
Others are a fixed point, they do not age, do not fail.
You throw the odds against them, and eventually they will prevail.
I wish I were an Other, but that I cannot be.
So I sit here, playing, escape for a human such as me.
So let us run and hide away, for Others we can be,
With dreams, and hope, we can escape reality.




Something I wrote in english while bored, (seriously, she can spend 45 minutes about freaking vocabulary...) about escapism.

I seem to be in a poetic mood tonight.

Your Hero

Everynight in my mind
I can hear you cry
Always caught in a bind
You just wish you would die

The pain you carry inside
Is yours to bear alone
But if you’d just let your heart be your guide
You’d understand everything I’ve shown

Always being hit
You feel like a zero
But you can avoid the pit
If you realise I’ll always be your hero

NOT written for or because of my now ex. Wrote this yesteray or Sunday...

Solitude

I look to the future with great fear
Because I dread you won’t be near
No matter how hard I try
The thought of you saying goodbye brings a tear to my eye

For my past, I do so miss
When everything was full of splendid bliss
Now though the nights grow cold
As I stroll down memory road

PAIN, is all I seem to feel
The only way I know what is real.
Something is not right about me
That is certainly easy for anyone to see

But alas, despite my plea
The deed is done and I’m to have no glee
So instead I’ll lay here awaiting the love of a stranger
Because maybe it’ll save me from this danger

Though these are merely the thoughts of one worth nothing
I’d sell what remains of my soul to be your everything
To hold and love you so dear
Is the only thing in my life I can see crystal clear

Friends and lovers both come and go
As will both joy and woe
But my feelings for you are unwavering and true
Because if there’s only one thing I know, it’s that I love you
