MY Poems :P


#1

Hopefully everyone gets the MY Poems joke… :stuck_out_tongue: Anyways, I’m deleting the stuff out of the old thread so it can either be deleted or left to die, doesn’t matter…

In accordance with the request of Slowhand, I have started up this thread of poems again. I have all of my older and newer works posted up. Hopefully people will enjoy them as they always have. But I do not guarantee satisfaction for all readers!! :stuck_out_tongue: Feel free to make comments and post stuff you’ve written. Doesn’t matter to me!

Also, all the poems I put up are not necessarily how I view things or how I think as of now, considering they are all from the past and we are all ever changing beings… I also tend to portray an image that is not at all like how I really am as a person in my writings…

These are ALL original works and I am not a professional and do not research or read other poetry unless friends want me to read their own works…

I will get around to writing some more in the near future as well I am sure…

I have organized them all in order of completion. Keep in mind numbers one through eight were all written in and around 2005-2006. All the others are as old as possible 3 years or a few weeks/months.

Here it is, the first poem I ever wrote. Wrote this four years ago in 9th grade.

Never Forget

To all those who fade away
Look up and seek a better day
Whether the sun’s warmth and brightness shines down on you
Or is covered by a cloud that sends darkness upon you
Please remember the words I say
Look up and seek a better day…

Where the sun looks so blue
And no darkness is upon you
You will find the ones you love
And you will be shined on from up above…

You will find those you despise
And will be rained on by cloudy skies
But remember your friends are there
For they are the ones who truly care
And with them you will be fine
They will be with you until the sun begins to shine…

Once again, I tell you to remember the words I say
Look up and seek a better day
Where the sun will always stay
And the sky that is so blue
Will take over all the clouds around you…

With your friends you must stay
Because without them the sun will go away
So, never forget the words I say
Look up and seek a better day…

This is my second poem, also was written four years ago in 2005-2006…

Towards the Setting Sun

Fading ever so slightly
Succumbs not even to the mighty
The sun ceases to shine ever so brightly
In the darkness that falls it is impossible to see the light
There is no point to fight
But do not be afraid
For even in the darkness you can seek the light…

Even if there is no chance in sight
In an era where the sun is setting and will never rise again
A futile battle between both sides
Where not even the mightiest decides
Losing my mind, body and soul
Tearing them apart and throwing them to the wind
Scattered and misplaced I fall from grace…

I am losing sight again, lost in this place
There is no one that cares, no one to seek
It seems that I have reached my peak
Uneasy and broken I fall again, wincing to see the light
For it is no longer bright in this depth of night
With no end in sight
This is my last chance…

If I could see even just a glance
Of a face that cares or a sun that will not set
For just a moment I would bet
That all that has happened I could forget
And that I could find myself once again
But to fall from grace and lose it all
Just to hit the wall
And destroy it all…

In the end, I am barely able to crawl
To see it out of the corner of my eye
A useless hope that can only make one cry
I shed a tear as the end is near
Forget it all and live on
In confusion and chaos that knows no bounds
Chains are broken but I am not found…

I have seen a place in the darkness
That no one can replace
A sinister evil, a creeping shadow
You dare not follow
I’ve found my way through the darkness
And seek the light no more
Hope is lost, love is lost
Nothing to care about
The beautiful darkness that encases the light
A prism of evil that captured my soul…

Now, the third poem. All of my first couple poems are very similar but somehow all end differently… Idk they were all pretty much written in the same week so I had my mind focused on a few specific things I suppose. Oh well, it doesn’t matter. lol

Break Through

Tear it apart and rip it down
Until nothing is left of this town
Striving for vengeance and thirsting for revenge
A jealous rage that sends me on a rampage
Stay out of my way or I’ll tear you apart
Leave me alone this is not something you want to start
No one has seen it but it is close
Tearing its way through
Ready to escape
Don’t forget that this is what you chose…

Set it up and knock it down
Until everything is broken in this town
Thriving for hate and screaming for pain
A forlorn anguish where there’s nothing to gain
Get out of my way because I’m falling apart
Everything is in pieces and I don’t know where to start
No one can see it for the dare not get too close
Tearing me apart
Ready to break
I dare not forget that this is what I chose…

Smash it up and beat it down
Pulverize everything so there’s nothing left in this town
Aching for fury and pleading for petulance
A lost hope and a life in which I don’t have a chance
Please just keep away and don’t even give a second glance
Don’t worry about me just walk away
I am slowly picking up the pieces of my life that I’ve let gone stray
Broken down and shattered inside
All I can do is search for a way…

There is one that I have found
Yet I cannot do it alone
For the pain has been going on for far too long
The only solution to what’s gone wrong
Is lying beneath the damage I’ve done
Struggling to search for a lost cause
I’m falling into a trap
It’s been days since I started searching and I can barely see the light
For, I am far too deep in what I started that one painful night…

I know she is there for I can hear her voice
Searching deeper into darkness
I have made my final choice
I shall not leave without her
If I die trying that so be it
But there is no way I will back down
Since I’m in the ruins of this town
The one that I have broken down
I look back at the things I have done
And hold regrets for all that is now gone…

I cannot forget what I have done nor can I fix it
But with hope in my broken soul I live on
In the wake of my strength I find where I belong
With the help of a loved one I now can live on
In a peaceful paradise where nothing matters…

But if I were to lose it all yet again I might not make it
I would attempt to break through the suffering and the pain that looms around
In whatever manner that suffices
I will try to break through and seek the light…

Fourth poem is up. I made these damn things so long back then… :stuck_out_tongue:

Hang Tight

Confused and bewildered
A mind that once wandered
Towards things that would be great sin to me now
My mind, no longer on a one way track
It’s time to commit and get my life back
To the way I once wished upon
But it seems there is something that is gone
In a mind that just knew
It seems there is nothing I can do…

I hate being rushed and being slowed down
But in this situation is seems that I can no longer on my own
Travel at a pace which suits my desire
I can no longer ignite the fuel that feeds the fire
All I can do is live on
Sooner or later I will find where I belong
Yet if it’s without her I might not go
For if she will not follow
I don’t know what I shall do…

I do not wish to be a burden
All I want is for her to be happy
And if that is without me
Then let it be…

I have always been this way and there is no reason to change
The pain has built up over the years
And it makes me shed a few tears
For those I have lost or have never been able to gain
In a world where others are more important than me I shall be
Even if I suffer the pain
I wish not unto others unhappiness and grief
This just so happens to be my belief…

Go ahead and say what you must
For I care not what you think of me, it’s just
It’s just the way I feel when I see others I care for suffer
There is nothing that I wouldn’t do to save them from pain
Even if there is nothing for me to gain
I don’t care what you say
So you’d best walk away
For I will not go stray
From my beliefs and thoughts
I must hang tight
And do my best to fight for what ii believe is right…

My mind is jumbled and my spirit is cracked
And I am slowly putting everything back that I have misplaced
Gradually figuring out how to fill the cracks that split open
All I can do is live on
Yet I will have to wait
But it is never too late
When one cares about another as much as I
Seeking for answers and searching for decisions
I try again to light the fire, but it burns out instantly
Waiting again as I have been
Pondering as to what I shall do
Just waiting for you…

You need not rush for I will be here
So don’t ever think that the end is near
The end is up to you, my dear
Until then I will be here for you and I will go at a pace that suits you
I am here for you always, from now till then end
I shall never break nor bend
The heart that cares for you
I shall hang tight if you will be alright
When I am down, still you are my light
And through the darkness you shine through…

So do not worry for I am here and I will never leave you
As long as we are loyal to each other there is nothing to fear
And my heart that cares for you will always be near…

Here is the fifth poem. Getting into my darker works coming up after the sixth poem.

Lose It All

No words can describe
The love I have for her
But I don’t know if I can take it any longer
I found myself praying
For the perfect one for me
And now that I can see
I have the one I longed for
But it feels as if acid is destroying me at the core
It is so hard for me to stand it anymore…

Now, I find myself praying
For the one that I have
This time for guidance and hope
Words cannot describe my thoughts for at this very moment
My heart feels as if it is being burned
And my stomach will not cease to churn
Agony and hatred of myself
For I have lost all hope in our life
I can no longer see what I saw in the beginning
And I don’t know if I can believe in
All the thoughts I had before
Where we were perfect and more…

I still know it’s there down inside
But as rivals arise and I can still not get a straight answer
What can I do but get upset and jealous
For I have vowed to live and die for her
As it seems my death wish may be fulfilled
For, she is my life and nothing else matters…

So if I lose it all
And I break down and fall
I shall say goodbye to the ones I love
And will seek guidance from up above
Where it seems I will go
But without her I don’t know
If I lose her I want not a second chance
Or to even take another f*****g glance
For when the time may come
I shall bid farewell to everyone…

Here is number six, that last semi-positive one for a while… lol

Lost In Love

I have tripped and stumbled
And I have fallen
And in my heart her name is calling
I love her more than life itself
And a sin it may be but I think I may love her more than God himself
Emily with you my heart will always stay
Even if your love for me goes stray
And in those times when I know not what to say
Just know that my thoughts are all of you
And I will do anything you want me to…

I know that life is hard, but please my love
We need to speak of everything we can think of
So that we will not go stray
And with you I can always stay
For I care about everything you say
And if I lose you I wish not for another day…

So here I am in prayer
For it seems my heart cannot bear
All the love it holds for you
And this is all I know to do
So when I see you next
We must speak of all the things that trouble us
For if we bottle it all inside
That is where hatred and jealousy reside
And with you by my side
I will tell you everything
And whether you want to or not
I am willing to hear all that you have to say
And then I shall await the next day
In which with you I can stay…

*Number seven is up, actually not as negative as I had thought. *

False Truth

Just when everything is thought to be
Your mind’s eye is unveiled and now you see
Everything you say to be alright as you fake a smile
And your reflection in the mirror of truth has been shedding tears for a while
Casting your shadow on no one, yet accepting their shadows upon yourself
Helping others with their problems as yours are left to worsen
All you seem to care about is others despite your problems and health
Care which is needed yet lies untouched
Everything is beginning to deepen…

All the sorrow and pain is digging roots in your soul
Causing the darkness to rise and overwhelm
If they knew what you do some would call you a fool
Others, a caring person who is selfish seldom
The rules I live by are all I need
For without them I would be full of selfishness and greed
And I wish not to plead
For help as others do to me…

What I once said was the truth
I did love her
And was willing to be with her forever
But I was not the one who went stray
Now my heart seems to care for no one as much as I did in those days
As it seems truth one day can become false the next
A darkness false truth is, for all I wish for is revealing guidance
For hope that is not forlorn and a belief that was not the result of a root of sorrow…

As I tread on each day waiting for tomorrow
I live for others over myself despite what might follow
I shall live to the end of my existence in hopes that another will help with my sorrow
For one to show the same kindness and would not mind to borrow
The pain I carry for myself that no one has seen and the sins of my past
Leaving me in a final peace as I tread onto the tomorrow after the last…

Number eight…

Blind-Sight

A shadow that lies on the reflection of my mind
Stirs up my vision causing me to become blind
Blind from everything that I have known yet not believed
And even though I can see the lies through her eyes
I still am deceived
If only someone like me
Could possibly come to be
Everything that they want everyone to see…

A true me in a fake reflection
Is just as bad as praying for rejection
Misled and undecided fools
Drowning their minds in the shallow pools
The shallow pools of despair
Where they are undecided and can’t help but care
I say screw all worries in life and do as you wish…

During the end of the pain one comes to believe
That it is pointless to care about whom you deceive
Or who deceives you, as long as it is by your own will
Nothing else can compare to the pleasure that your inner darkness can fill
Consume yourself in isolation if you dare
And just pray that you will be able to bear
The everlasting darkness in which you will become aware…

The shadow has disappeared from my reflection
And for a short time I see the truth
But then blood is cast upon the reflection
The reflection of hope and light
Now all I can see is crimson red and loss
And I am so lost that I am not able to fight
The evil that overrides without my wish
And unwanted dark pleasure
Which only I can decipher
And no one else can help
Not even the holiest of them all…

As one looks into a mirror and sees their reflection cast upon the holy water
And there is a shadow of their faith drowning upon it will they even bother?
Or will they do everything to save their sanity?
Can they decide which is what should be?
As souls are set to wander and be free
Only the beholder can see their fate
It is up to then to choose love or hate
For in the end only they can alter what will come to be…

As it seems the water has run dry
And nothing is left
Not even a tear to cry
Now my soul can no longer fly
From now till the end of time goes by…

Number nine, kind of a twisted view in this one.

Plague

The curtain closes on a clear blue sky
Nothing open, suffocation (unholy)
Everything meant to die
Exposure to cold darkness (fear)
Frozen tears ripping skin off lonely faces
Knives coated with blue blood (suicide)
Frozen pools (blood) shattered by tortured souls
A massacre masked by blinding darkness (demons)
A sight seen by the beholders heart only to be pierced by sins (hopeless)
The Devil’s plague deepens
Light shines through the curtains only to blind and burn (victims)
Damage dealt to the holy
The curtain closes on existence… (Nothingness)

Number ten…

Desperation

The tone of aching hearts cries out tonight
Left alone to seek out eternal flight
Left alone too long for another night…

Desperations that could make one cry
So much to say, staring into the sky
So much to do, cowering coldly
Fears that could make one die
So much to say, worrying frantically
So much to do, hoping constantly…

Interruptions at the corner of every eye
Did I say you could talk? Leave me be you’re not what I desire
Don’t tread on my fire
Staring into the wavering flames
A distant place, seemingly not reality
A thought that could make one sigh
What to say? Staring into nothingness
What to do? Closing my eyes feeling hopeless…

A place of comfort, a place of reassurance
A dream that will make one fly…

Number eleven…

Blood Rose

Darkness so deep, yet the crimsons shown through
A thorn unveiled by the shining blood, illuminated by one’s body heat
Incense lit by the hand of another
Silence so sincere, a stem teeming with crimson as the thorn disappears into darkness…

Thunder claps as the rain begins to pour
Feelings indescribable as our hearts begin to soar
A rose coated in one’s blood licked clean by another’s warm embrace
A small light illuminating the most beautiful face…

The scent of heaven is near
Hand in hand there is nothing to fear
Pleasure rising to a height higher than holy
As the sound of rain is drumming through the walls…

In my mind the gates of heaven are opened as I enter the most sacred place
Angels singing through eternity as rose pedals fall onto my face
Eyes closed in the warmest embrace…

Number twelve, finally getting into my favorite works.

Black and White Coffin

The air breathes black and white
The air is cold, feels as if I’ve died tonight
A drop of blood cast on my face
Feel the punishment of your mistake
Look around to see the horror of this place
Feel the sorrow your heart begins to ache…

Are you satisfied? You’ve put her in her place
How do you feel now as you long to see her face?
Close your eyes you’ve sealed your fate
In pieces on the ground, you wish she’d risen
Think of all the sins you know she’ll hate
While she looks down from heaven…

Tool of vengeance grasped in your hand
Deceit unbearable dealt upon her and
You can’t deny it, God won’t buy it
Desperate for so long, now you see she’s gone
Crawl and hide from all
You’ve only prolonged you’re fall…

Can’t you see the rose pedals falling down?
Each one a tear shed as they reach the ground
Coffin of black and white
Darkness clouds tonight
There’s no point to fight
For eternal black will seem so right…

Number thirteen.

Corrupted

Signs of decay lead the way
Follow the path towards a darker day
Shattered walkways hidden under broken glass
Put the pieces together to uncover the past…

Blood stained streets of darker days
Continue walking even when too much is lost
As rain washes memories of loss down the waterways
You begin to stutter and your vision is blurry, you pay the cost…

Light from the lamp post is flickering
And the feeling deep down inside is sickening
Creaking of a door hinge echoes in the still, cold air
The abandoned house’s door swings open and no one is there…

The windows are shattering and the pillars are crumbling
At the tone of the resonating sound
One can hear the end calling
As everything is falling through the ground…

The streets falling beneath my feet
Slipping into nothingness, the devil that I am to meet
Nothing left of the place in which I dwell
Staring up at a fading heaven as I fall down to hell…

Lost in my final frontier
A dark and desolate place
With what I desire for most nowhere near
Staring into the most unholy face…

Stricken with displeasure and spite
The sick pleasure of a fight
Satisfied, yet broken
All the cracks in my heart become wide open…

Broken the pieces fall, never to return
Sinful, always I am to burn…

Number fourteen. This one was actually written in hopes of it being a song.

Bound To Reality

Late night, wake up, falling down on me
Crumbling, fading, exposure can’t you see?
See your future hit the ground…

Fly away, lie awake
Close your eyes it’s all fake
Dreams are your reality
Think of her, everything’s alright
Pray you’ll see her face tonight…

In the comfort of your own mind you feel sick
Trying to comprehend what has happened, but it just won’t stick
Keep your hands away from me (God’s voice calling)
I can’t believe this is what you said should be (God’s choice spoken)

Late night, wake up, falling down on me
Crumbling, fading, exposure can’t you see?
See your future fall through the ground…

Fly away, lie awake
Close your eyes it’s all fake
Dreams are your reality
Think of her, now nothing’s alright
Pray you’ll be able to sleep tonight…

Dreams fade
The sun ceases to shine
I’m afraid
Spiting the divine
Hatred made
Falling out of line…

In the comfort of your own mind you feel sick
Trying to comprehend what has happened, but it just won’t stick
Keep your hands away from me (God’s voice calling)
I can’t believe this is what you said should be (God’s choice spoken)

The chains that weigh my heart down
Binding me to reality
The blackened heart leaving me hell bound
Never setting me free…

Here I am waiting to die
Watching everything falling from the sky
You took the one most precious to me
You told me what should be
Thanks to you now I can’t breathe
Never want to be bound to reality
These chains that hung me…

Number fifteen, this one was also written to be a song.

Don’t Let This End

I don’t know how much longer this will last
Though I wish it’d be forever
So many times I recall the past
And realize how lonely life was without her…

No, don’t let this end (leaving me without understanding)
Not again, I don’t want to depend on everything around me
No longer shall I see (the depths of such depression)
Don’t let this end…

All that has happened has come and gone
We have forgiven
Tried not to forsaken
So, let this continue on
Please, always continue on…

Just another day
And yes, my love is strong
Oh, but something’s wrong…

No, don’t let this end (leaving me without understanding)
Not again, I don’t want to depend on everything around me
No longer shall I see (the depths of such depression)
Don’t let this end…

Just forget it, as we walk along
We have forgiven
Tried not to forsaken
So, let this continue on
I have faith, so continue on…

Please God
Let this continue on…

The pain is gone
Sufferings over
Her embrace has come
And made it all better…

Number sixteen was written for my girlfriend after I moved up to college. But, she broke up with me because she just doesn’t feel in love anymore. We are just friends now so the poem doesn’t have much significance, but I still like it… Enjoy! Completed: 9/25/2009

My Love

My love it feels forever
Has passed but you are mine
My heart has been so broken
To feel the pass of time
My love I wish to hold you
Time and time again
Hope is always with me
From right where we began…

To hold you now
And feel the pass of time
Mends what’s broken
Knowing you are mine
Forget what’s passed
Memories aren’t far behind
Embrace this moment
Until the end of time…

My love it feels like time
Has come to be so still
When thoughts of you surround me
I know this is my will…

To hold you now
And feel the pass of time
Mends what’s broken
Knowing you are mine
Forget what’s passed
Our memories are close behind
Embrace this moment
Until the end of time…

My love it feels forever
Has passed but you are mine
Still I feel so lonely
To feel the pass of time
My love I wish to see you
Time and time again
In my heart you are with me
Always until the end…

Hold me now
Don’t ever drift away
To be in your arms
Is where I wish to stay…

To hold you now
I would never fade away
My arms long for you
To come to them and stay…

My love it feels forever
Has passed but you are mine
My heart has been so broken
To feel the pass of time
My love I wish to hold you
Time and time again
Your love I carry with me
Forever until the end
Forever until the end…

Number seventeen was completed on 10/12/2009. It’s a cute little poem lol. Definitely not perfect… Little bit of love mixed in with mostly friendship… Enjoy!!

Memories

These thoughts I hold close to me
Do much more than cloud blue skies
Forever is never broken
Despite the tears in my eyes
Words that were once spoken
Will never be my demise
Forever is never broken
When past love fills my eyes…

My heart holds you close to me
And will never let you go
Friendship everlasting
I wish for you to know…

The years we’ve spent together
I proclaim them now and forever
My heart light as a feather
Time with you always better…

Always shall I be here
I’ll stay until the end
Whenever you might need me
Remember I am your friend…

Times we’ve spent together
The things we’ve gone and done
Always I will remember
Until my end has come…

These memories I hold close to me
Mean much more than bright blue skies
Always they shall be spoken
With joyful tears in my eyes
The door to my heart you have opened
Be it no surprise
Forever always open
As our friendship never dies…

Number eighteen. Ended up making the ending positive compared to the initial darker starting point. It’s a shorter one but I like it.

Clouds

Clouds that cover
But still they are so thin
Embracing this pain
Deep under my skin
So simple to break through
But here I lie under
Clouds so cold
In this darkness forever…

This radiant smile
Illuminates the skies
All the while
Pain ceases and dies
Warmth under my skin
Allows me to rise
Seeing your face
It’s no surprise
The sun shines so bright
Escaping darkness
Hardly a fight…

Number nineteen.

Longing

Clouds change direction
The sky has turned to ground
From what it seems my perception
Has been turned upside down…

Darkness surrounds the sun
Weight of air is a ton
Daylight embraces the moon
Will this end soon?

Longing for a way out
The dreams that fill these eyes
Are seen by a life longing to live these lies…

This flow is not the same
Feelings changed abruptly
Am I insane?
Everything happens so quickly…

Look around for a moment
Just to find
That everything is changing
Inside your mind…

Look around today
For the sake of learning
That tomorrow is here
And it’s left you yearning…

Longing for a way out
Chaos lies under my skin
What the hell am I supposed to do?
With this life that I’ve been living in…

These dreams I cling to tightly
One by one each slowly dies
Followed by an aching heart
Longing to live these lies…

Number Twenty

Dreams

Fight me
Surely, one will die
Start this
Living is a lie…

Fulfill my prophecy
My dreams will never end
In life I continue falling
Time in dreams I wish to spend…

Hate me
Everyone’s meant to die
End it
Time will still go by…

Send me into a dream
I’ll live an eternal lie
Death is not feared
When dreaming I can fly…

Believe me
It’s worth a try
Say it
Your mouths grown dry…

Fulfill my prophecy
My dreams will never end
In life I continue falling
Time in dreams I wish to spend…

Trap me
No wings I have to fly
Why wait
Alone, here I lie…

Send me into a dream
I’ll live an eternal lie
Death is not feared
When dreaming I can fly…

Kill me
Fighting I won’t try
Do it
I promise I won’t cry…

Fulfill my prophecy
My dreams will never end
In life I continue falling
Time in dreams I wish to spend…

Send me into a dream
I’ll live an eternal lie
Death is not feared
When dreaming I can fly…

Number twenty one.

Fated Dismay

Our faults begin with caring
Ethnocentric in every way
But, no one is more deserving
To see the light of day…

Hold me down
But, you won’t hold me back
Easily I drown
I can face that fact
I don’t need you
To try to change my life
I know my faults
And the worthlessness of my life…

You think you are better
But, you don’t know what’s right
You can preach it all
An argument not worth the fight
I’ve seen all you have to offer
The inconsistency of your truths
In life we all still suffer
From people just like you…

Our faults end with hating
Everyone is fated dismay
There is no reason in believing
Life was meant to be this way…

Hold me down
But, you won’t hold me back
Easily I drown
I can face that fact
I don’t need you
To try to change my life
I know my faults
And the worthlessness of my life…

You think you are better
But, you don’t know what’s right
You can preach it all
An argument not worth the fight
I’ve seen all you have to offer
The inconsistency of your truths
In life we all still suffer
From people just like you…

Your faults are mine, the same
My actions not always better
We’re all to blame
For making others suffer…

Hold them down
But, you won’t hold them back
Easily they drown
They will face that fact
They don’t need us
To try to change their lives
They share our faults
And equality of life…

We think we are better
But, we don’t follow what’s right
We can preach it all
Arguments never worth the fight
The world has seen all we have to offer
The inconsistency of our truths
In life everyone will suffer
From what we choose to do…

Number twenty two.

A Journey Underground

Ashes continue falling
And no one is around
My voice continues calling
But, I can hear no sound
Darkness is overwhelming
As I wander underground…

Will someone walk beside me?
Somewhere underground
Would they stand before me?
And speak a solemn sound
Could they ever find me?
If so, this would astound…

Is this everlasting?
The blandest sights without a sound
Could it be forever?
That I wander all around
Is this scenery never changing?
Nothing new that I have found…

In the end will I be crawling?
To make my way around
Will I continue breathing?
These ashes that surround
Am I destined to stay forever?
Somewhere underground…

Still, these ashes continue falling
And no one is around
My heart continues calling
For, my voice can make no sound
Darkness is consuming
As I lie here underground…

Number twenty three.

Scream These Words

Don’t come back here
Am I coming in clear?
Scream these words
And instill the fear
Stay in your place
And get out of her face
I’ll scream these words
Until you’re gone without a trace…

Not another tear will fall for you
Not another voice will call for you
To please stop doing this…

I’ll scream for you this time
But, now the pleasures all mine

Don’t come back here
Have I made myself clear?
Scream these words
And instill the fear
Stay in your place
And get out of her face
I’ll scream these words
Until you’re gone without a trace…

Not another tear will fall for you
Not another voice will call for you
To please stop doing this…

Why does this amuse you?
Do you see me laughing?
How can you live with what you do?
Can you call that living?

Not another tear will fall for you
Not another voice will call for you
I’ll end this now…

I’ll scream for you this time
But, now the pleasures all mine…

Don’t come back here
Have I made myself clear?
Scream these words
And end her fear
Stay in your place
And get out of her face
I’ll scream these words
Until you’re gone without a trace
I’ll scream these words
So she’ll never have to see your face…

Echoes

This thought echoes to me
Every moment of every day
Why is it that this world
Has come to be this way?

Send me to a day
That echoes in the past
A time far away
Where I can be at last
Break these endless cycles
And take this all away
Release me from these shackles
And let me live today…

Hope is growing colder
As faith fades away
We all seem to grow older
But what price is to pay?
More days we now see
But less time we choose spend
In our beautiful world
That this existence seems to end…

What’s wrong with such a simple life?
Like this world used to know
When shelter, food and family
Was all we had to show
To me, shortness of life
And quickness of death
Are small prices to pay
To breathe a true life’s breath….

Quantity over quality
Is what we seem to show
But in reality
Is this the best we know?
The “most superior” of beings
To ever walk this earth
But here we are where paper
Shows us what we’re worth…

Pigs wallow in their filth
As we obsess over ourselves
They enjoy what nature brings
As we collect things on our shelves
Show me how our fabrications
Are better than natures gifts
As we pay back these offerings
With toxins that the air lifts…

Was this world made for us
Or are we the fleas on its surface?
Is our survival more important
Than the lasting of its existence?
Is the universe our playground?
Made for us to do with what we please
Or are we less important
Than a simple ocean’s breeze…

Send me to a day
That echoes in the past
A time far away
Where I can be at last
Break these endless cycles
And take this all away
Release me from these shackles
And let me live today…

This thought echoes to me
Every moment of every day
Why is it that this world
Has come to be this way?

Number twenty five.

The River

I carried this to the river
And a cool breeze masked my shiver
I placed it in the water
And my lips began to quiver
I watched it drift away
And had hoped that it could stay…

I take myself to the river
And a cool breeze makes me shiver
I watch reflections in the water
And my lips begin to quiver
In my thoughts I drift away
And I can’t help but want to stay
Lost in another day…

More to come! Eventually… :stuck_out_tongue:

“The Disingenuous Monarch” (it could be about both a king and a butterfly!)

My Love

Yay! You’re back! :laugh:

This sounds like something that could be set to music… if I were more musically inclined, I could probably hear it in my head.

It reminds me of my college days a little (and yes, I can remember that far back!).

I hope you can find some of those other ones from the old forum, since everything has been lost from then. :angry:

Great to have you back, Foamy!

Memories

You have such beautiful memories of your past relationship - much better than I have of my past relationships. That’s such a good thing.

My favorite lines:

[quote]Forever is never broken,
When past love fills my eyes…

Friendship everlasting,
I wish for you to know…[/quote]

You also have such a gift of words, keep that close to you. Always. :slight_smile:


#5

Uhhh… I’m going to get the dictionary real quick and then I’ll see if that could be a possibility… Hmmm… disingenuous… lacking in candor… Back to the dictionary… candor… frankness… Lacking in frankness monarch?? How the heck is that supposed to make sense?? Back to the dictionary to better understand frankness… frank… direct and sincere… sigh Can anyone give me a better idea of what “The Disingenuous Monarch” would possibly mean besides The Lacking in Direct and Sincere Monarch??? :unsure:

Thank you Slowhand!!! You’re the best!!:slight_smile:


#6

“Disingenuous” is pretending you know less about something than you really do, often to look “innocent” about something.

“not candid or sincere, typically by pretending that one knows less about something than one really does.”


#7

Deceptive; ya never know which way he’s gonna fly.


#8

Lol okay then, the dictionary fails me once again! Stupid tiny dictionary… I’ll see what I can think of!


#9

“Memories” is quite beautiful. Made me remember an old friend.
You are very talented!
:slight_smile:


#10

Thank you!! :slight_smile: I do my best lol

Feel free to use it as you please,
To bring back good old memories!

Idk, it rhymed… so I set it up like I do my poems… :stuck_out_tongue:


#11

put some guitar to it an give it a chorus nd youve got yourself a song…


#12

Haha that’s alright you can do that if you want lol


#13

I have updated and posted some of my old/first poems that were on the old forums. I’ll be posting more over the next few days so check them out if you want. Enjoy!


#14

Never Forget

Reminds me of my friend who passed away this summer…

And those other two; you’re so serious and/or sad! It’s hard for me to remember how young you are! You must have an old soul!
You haven’t lived enough to have all these feelings! :dry:


#15

Haha. I’m not necessarily the same person I was back then. :stuck_out_tongue: Back then I was able to get in certain moods where I could just easily write what I was feeling and I don’t even really remember how I was feeling that way. I had some trouble remembering exactly what I was thinking when I wrote those. I have 12 more poems to go that need to be put up. Some I don’t think were ever put up before.


#16

Bring 'em on dude! The more the better. It’s pretty cool that you can put your feelings into form like that.


#17

Lol alright fillet, thanks. Just got another two up. Looking to get two more up later today.


#18

All of my poems are up for whoever wants to read them and comment. Have at them and enjoy! I will probably be starting to write some more soon, but since I’m going back to college soon I might not get around to it too quickly. But regardless, when something new is written you can count on it to get posted up here.

Hang Tight
This is a break-up ‘song’ if I’ve ever heard one; it’s so full of angst.

Lose It All
Depressing; so the deal is that if you lose the girl, you ‘lose it all’? I certainly hope that you wrote this one a long time ago, otherwise we need to get you in contact with Suicide Prevention.

Lost In Love
This is such a sweet little poem (except for the ‘not living another day’ part), I really like this one.

False Truth
I take it that you’re finally over the woman from the depressing poems from above; and that you’re just now letting it all sink in that you’ve been living a ‘false’ truth?

Blind-Sight
In despair from betrayal… who do you turn to… Man! This woman did you a wrong, I need to have a serious chat with her!

Plague
Oh, thank you so much for this up-lifting little number. I’ll just take a little break now.


#20

All the ones you commented on were from about four years ago. And yes I am much different now than I was then in the aspects of how I handle myself and the situations around me. I used to get a little carried away in my thoughts and wrote fairly over dramatically. All your comments are much appreciated!

Hang Tight, yes that was right before a break up.

Lose It All, well the fact is I’m still alive so no need for suicide prevention. Yea losing a girl is what was the intention for the title but now that I look back it could also possibly be interpreted as losing all of myself mentally. I really never thought much of what I was writing back then. I just let it all come to me and those old ones were all written individually straight through without stopping or taking breaks.

Lost In Love, thanks (yeah, I had a lot of that back then… sorry!)

False Truth, this kind of ties in with me not thinking my poems through and just writing till it stops coming to mind or when I sense closure in the piece. Um, I’m going to say that that is not what I had the intentions of writing about but more so that as time passes by a lot of things in the past that you say and the things that are the “truth” end up changing and become “false”. Like when you “love” someone and you say that you want to be with them forever when you are younger. But then you grow up and realize that you really don’t feel that way at all anymore but back when you thought that way that was the truth and you meant every word of it.

Blind-Sight, lol I hold no grudges and I’ve had worse done to me over the years. This is just another example of the way young people like to over dramatize things. :stuck_out_tongue:

Plague, sorry… lol idk where I got the inspiration for that one honestly… :stuck_out_tongue: Just kinda had the thought that if God and the Devil are true beings and that if God wasn’t the stronger of the two, what would happen to humanity? So I wrote… I kind of wanted it to give an image of a play or something with the curtains covering everything and the devil having hold of the strings that opened them.
