A poet at heart! [:O]


So, in my off time, I normally write poetry (:s)

I thought I'd like to share some since they're all public anyway. I embarked on a daily poetry writing month as a personal project. The outcome was 24 poems, all here. Not all of them are excellent though :s

Just some I selected to showcase:

Quote:

With this weapon I...

With this weapon I command the law.
A flick and a swish and off comes a head
For breaking the rule imposed.
Dark fluid flows and imprints itself
On the purest, plainest field.

With this weapon I command armies.
To charge against one another.
I dictate the lives of the survivors,
And demand their gruesome deaths.

Wielding this weapon, I command the skies.
Storm when the Sun’s desired,
Cloudy to darken the day.
And stays clear at my bidding.

With this weapon, I control your mind.
Invoking thoughts of misery and torture.
I wipe your thoughts and create others.
Watching as you writhe and wonder.

And with this weapon I continue to write,
Smiling wryly.


Quote:

Serenity

Seated on a stone,
In peaceful serenity,
I see lush blue fields
And crisp green skies.

The blocky clouds gallop by,
As light rain falls from the grass;
And the Sun casts its icy gaze
Onto the sweltering snow below.

A calm little place, I must admit,
With silent bees and buzzing butterflies.
The flowers bloom in warming winter,
And snow falls in chilly summer.

Oh no!
Alas! My time here is short,
And I must return
To the crazy world
That I know.


Quote:

Yesterday

It was yesterday
when we sat together
with a glass of lemonade.

The bittersweet memories
have long since faded
from living thought.

It has all changed now.
We’ve went our separate ways
never again to meet by fate.

I'm not one for poetry. I just don't understand it unless someone else talks me through it; so I hope you weren't hoping for any sort of critique with this post. But I just wanted to say that this verse instantly caught my attention:


Quote:

With this weapon, I control your mind.
Invoking thoughts of misery and torture.
I wipe your thoughts and create others.
Watching as you writhe and wonder.


It's twisted, and in a way, bordering on sadistic. Love it.

I loved 'With this weapon I...' I usually write poetry too, which is why i'm nervous about this novel thing. They're not that good, but considering they are all posted online anyways, and I am always looking for opinions, I shall share one.

My Untold Illusion

Hidden in plain sight, lost upon finding, my heart races for you.
My dreams offer me no escape from the plague of thoughts that is you.
Is this what I have been searching for?
But it is a twisted prize, gaining pleasure from his pain and I watch him die.

The cruel vines of rejection swallow my sacrifice-
I killed him for you.

I would do anything for a mere flicker of your admiration,
I wait in the shadows and steal glimpses of your face
as you roam the streets long after everyone else has gone home.

I am crying silent tears of desperation and remorse at what was never meant
and what I want the most is separated as though mocking my futile attempts...
Have I killed for naught?
Have I destroyed everything for nothing?

Will I be fated to remain in the shadows forever,
never knowing what it feels like to belong to you,
To be your prized possession,
To win your love.

I love poetry, its one of the ways i chanel my darker emotions in a safe way. Heres one:

HONEY.


Everything I do is fuelled by you
The poems and songs and stories, your essence is there
Feeding them into something bigger and larger than I could ever make them
On my own that is
My breathing, my very heart beating
Once functioned on its own
But you’re my life support
To switch you off is to switch me off
To turn off the power
Is effectively taking my last breath, my last heartbeat,
Like a bee keeper taking honey
One little bit of honey
And incidentally taking the opportunity for life
Away from a single forsaken bee





Signature made by me :)

With this Weapon is amazing. I'll share some of my scribblings with you, I suppose. This is "Broken Blade".

"We are only flowers and snow.
Although we strive to hold back
Time from flowing past,
We watch our lifetime slipping by.
And when our moments are done,
We fade away before the sun.
We are only flowers. We are only snow.

It's sharp, the bitter tang
Of regret for the broken blade
I dared not raise
For myself.
Now in the summer sunlight
It's just as dark, as cold,
as a chilly winter night.
I'm all alone. I never stood
For myself, on my own two legs.

Where is the sword I never dared
To raise for myself?
It's vanished, my sword, and it
Certainly won't return.
These memories steep a bitter tea
One that I must drink
Unsweetened.

I am alone.
Only a petal,
Only a flake of snow."

Laughing and talking
Showing only signs of light
But inside the girl
Darkness shines just as bright

Music playing, song writing
Fun loving girl
Is really a secret temptress
Of the dark that makes souls curl

Behind the light eyes
Black stirs under the surface
Every now and then slipping
Letting the dark grimace its face

But still no one knows
Of this girl’s evil side
But the lightness is weakening
And darkness doesn’t like to hide

there's mine! :)
