first love,
That which makes one
melt
within, shines as a single beacon of
hope
against the dark sea.

.:: Criss-Crossing Lines of Shines ::.I

It's a dangerous dance we do, the dance of love
Of courting and malicious traps, of careful bonds of easily shattered trust.
Here, we tiptoe on a sharpened piano wire
In bare feet, four miles above the ground.
So easily could we cut off heads with the string we stand on...
Please, oh please don't fall, because if you do, I'll try to catch you
And if I catch you, I won't be able to hold on
So I'll plunge with you...

Or if by some misconception of that cruel temptress Fate
I manage to catch hold of your hand and the wire
It, being so sharp, will slice clean through my fingers, and then we'll fall.
Precarious is an understatement for what we have
Something so beautiful and strong, yet so volatile and weak
Please don't fall, but shuffle along the wire
Carefully, love, don't cut your feet
And grasp my hand, please hold it as tight as you possibly can
This moment could be our last, and I'm so very frightened.

Can we get off this atom-thick walkway
And onto something wider, is it possible?
Can't we trust each other completely like we used to
And never falter on our way from here to there
Where is our sure-footedness
Where has it gone...?
Please, don't fall off the wire without me
If we hope, maybe it'll grow...

It matters not that the rest of the world misunderstand us, for we have already bared our most inner thoughts to the world. poetry is like a kaleidoscope of colours, it mesmerizes our eyes and mind. So in my book, you are a poet and that was one very touching poem.
Thank you sir . . . maybe I'm a poet and didn't know it.(sorry, couldn't refuse) No really, I'm old school . . . 4th grade was the last time I wrote a poem (before this one) . . .

This was just one of those things I poured my heart into the only way I knew how . . . I don't intend to persue poetry, I just happened along this section of the forum and thought, WoW! . . I'll post my poem here! Didn't expect a rave review. Thanks for your words of encouragement.

aFfLiCtEd, you are welcomed. I just spoke my thoughts. i doubt many of us on this thread is really pursuing poetry, atleast I am not. The reason this thread has been here for so long is mainly due to the support of members like you. If you feel like a need to share again, then come back.

Mike nice work.

White Raven, what can I say. You are the talent that I will hard press to be.

And a merry christmas to all.

Here is todays poem.

: Less it be real
Quote:
Small as it may be
I am the one that cares for you
Less it be real
Your happiness is what matters to me
what is it that turns my world
I have yet to understand that
only that with your love I become more
so it happend within your eyes
I see my future and my destiny
never falter
never give up
So be happy tonight
for I am here for you


Enjoy.

and I am on a roll

: Love and Honesty
Quote:
Should it not be the same
Why does it differ so
Should it not be what binds us all
Like the land and sky
so far a part yet one together
at the end of this matinee
what else is left to us all
just love and honesty
that which blinds us all.


Enjoy.

This is really the day ...

: Lost to Time
Quote:
As I am leaving now
what have you to say to me
I hate to accept it
but I don't want to go
yet our hearts no longer belong
what was is no more
what ever happend to our show
was it not enough to just love
it seems that its just so
I use to be able to hear your heart
now I hear only the wind
where is the romance that we shared
was it all just for not
does time ever heals this pain
I remember it was just yesterday
that you love me totally
how much has changed
should I have changed too?
I don't know
at the end of it all
what is there left for us
tell me now
so that I could go


This is what happends to 50% of my relationships.

Really ...

need I say more?

:Sheeshh
Quote:
Don't say you don't know
did you not feel it all
should we have understood the truth
we could have walked away when we could
all that I wanted to say
was said a thousand times over
if you think loving me is a chore
then what do you take me for
I hate this dream
there are more reasons to let you go
then for me to stay and live like this
I no longer care what is there now
I just want to hold you close
and listen to you breathing in my arms
don't you see
its just me and you
love is what makes me better
and all I want is you
so don't say you don't know
for I love you with my entire soul
would you love me too like so


when the wave of words hit me, it hits me hard.

enjoy.

Time

Everything changes, but I stay the same
Nothing remains to which I may lay claim
Sorrowing, stumbling, crying alone
All for mistakes for which I can't atone
Loves me, HE carries me; another day gone
Faithful and true as each day is long
Walking, still walking, I'm still on my feet
Never missing a trial, never missing a beat
I stumble, I falter, HE's there to support me
My LORD, and my friend, my GOD, the ALMIGHTY
And pausing at last at this last abrupt end
As my dizzying course finally comes to a halt
What lines in this tale have yet to be penned?
What race to be finished I have yet to start?
The questions elude, and the years yet intrude
It's time vs. me, in an unending feud
Once I said...
"Master all, yet be no master
Turn the tide, the world turns faster."
But now...
"And all I can say, is I'm glad ever day
With the LORD on my side, I can yet turn the tide."
And I'm walking.
And I'm singing.
I was falling.
I was cringing.
And now I'm here. Now where am I?
Now where is fear? What if I die?
Some think... it all contradictory.
I know... I have the victory.
And I know I would never have made it this far.
Through all of the trials that were and still are.
If my LORD didn't love, and if GOD didn't care.
And if next to my side, HE was not always here.

Welcome to the threads, jzyehoshua. I believe a man of faith is always welcome in any place.

Post more and you just might end up converting us all ...

Hmm... I've wondered several times before just where the term "converted" came from and now seems as good a time to ask as any. Because the Bible doesn't say anything about "converting" to my knowledge, it's not about simple knowledge or simple acceptance and certainly not about any kind of works that will get you to Heaven. The fact of the matter is that it's not about denominations or what religion you claim to be a part of, that doesn't concern me. It's just the simple story the Bible tells of GOD who came to earth to die for the sins of all. HE said to love GOD first and foremost and love your neighbor as yourself. And the only way to live eternally is to be born again by simple faith.

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Call yourself whatever you want, attend whatever church you want, be considered of any denomination or none, it doesn't matter with eternal life.

What matters is that you believe that the Son of God, Jesus Christ, is exactly who He claimed to be, repent of your sins, and trust in Him, the only one who can rescue you from your sins for your salvation.

Trusting in popes, Mary, churches, or anyone/anything else will not save you, it's because we're hopelessly lost in our sin with no other hope that God Himself had to come to earth to pay for our sins. The condemnation to an eternal death in a place the Bible calls "the Lake of Fire" has nothing to do with what church you go to, what deeds you do, how "spiritual" you are, or anything else but this:

John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.







I don't care and neither does God if you're a murderer, thief, adulterer, or whatever else for all sin is guilty of death and we all deserve to hang eternally on the cross that our God suffered on for us. The promise is to "whosoever", and if you are capable of the faith to believe in the only begotten Son of God, the true repentance and sorrow in your heart for your sins, and are willing to accept the eternal King, then salvation is waiting for you. All the saints went in with their "righteousness as filthy rags" before knowing Christ, and enter His kingdom washed "whiter than snow."





John 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

John 8:54 Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:

John 10:29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
30 I and my Father are one.

wow ... all those for just one word.

I stand corrected. Faith is between the individual and god. opinions and views of others does not bare any weight at the end. yet in this everyday world we live in, we are shackled by the views of others and that somehow pulls us down deeper into our personal hell. Which is why repentance is important, not just to repent our sins, but to know that other than GOD there is no other salvation.

Do we fear death? yes, most do. But most of all, we fear life after death. If death was final then there is nothing to fear for, but if it is not? Does the journet end there? That is the biggest fear of all.

I am no religious person, though I do believe in the lord christ, I find it hard to talk theology with people, because everyone has their own version of the "bible". Thus I leave it to the lord to judge and I live my life as I see fit.

Hope I don't bore anyone with this, this is after all a poetry thread. Post more poems people ... let us share our wealth together.

Indeed my great friend.
This is a place to post one's own words
in the form of poetry or prose as they choose,
not a place to post other's words,
even if they're scripture.
Doing so breeds arguments that have no conclusions.
I'd truely hate to see this thread turn into that.

papadoc, well said.
So here is mine for today

: What I do to survive
Quote:
It might be inevitable
that we all go to hell
yet I will not do it any different
if not for choices
and decisions
what else is there in life
but the freedom to choose
what it is that defines our souls
it is like this everyday
every minute
every second
one decides their own path that defines our destiny
So I would rather be honest
then lie to my own feelings
it is a new day
and a new beginining
a new thread for history
this is what I do to survive


Am seeing the light at the end of the storm here ...

Before you guys read the following poem, understand that it is not something happening to me or anyone near me. It is a dream that was made by someone else which I so happend to stumble upon.

: Tales of another
Quote:
Leaving this behind
you are my only concern
maybe its for the best
but I still had to know
would you be alright?
could you smile again?
was it ever good enough?
can you let it go?
They say there is light at the end
to me its just another fairy tale
like love everlasting
it never comes true


Before it begins, we all see the end.
That is the most pessimistic view that a human being can ever had. Crying before the reason comes true.

Enjoy.

Here is todays little poem.
means something or not.
says something or not.
feels something or not.
you decide.

: Portrait of a man
Quote:
All there is in life
is truth
is pain
is betrayel
is love
is you

More than anything in these times
is lost
is hurt
is confusion
is anger
is heart

Losing every single second
is mind
is soul
is meaning
is grace
is me

As I lay quietly here in peace
I contemplate my final thoughts
does it really matter
and I let it all go


enjoy.

.:: a morn in january ::.

Running through melting snow and ice
In velvet boots of black
After a bus that doesn't stop
Funny how things happen sometimes

I wished you were here
For the sunrise this morning
But how many thousands of miles away are you?
So, alas...

But the sunrise was like nothing you'd ever seen
Like pulling a firebird's egg from the dismal night
Parts of the sky were on fire, and some parts were blue
A little like your eyes

My breath was too visible for my liking
I wonder what you're doing right now
The bus made me late this morning
Though I got up on time at five after seven

I remember thinking you were running alongside me
To get that stupid bus
Like your shoes were crunching the soaked snow, too
Like the black scarf around my neck was flapping in the wind
And hitting your shoulder in your strides

Something fanciful, I guess
Because no wondrous sight overtook me
But a bus spraying grey slosh and disappearing
Great

A chill held me in its teeth
Before I finally got the stupid bus
And everyone was staring because my pants were orange
Whatever

For a split tiny second I saw you with me
Stepping on the bus after I'd got on
I almost felt the reverberations
The displacement of weight
But maybe it was just delirium
I wish they'd stop staring
My pants aren't that bright

At least my music isn't doomed to die today
Saw you in a dream last night
Wondrous and leaning on a sign by a train
You held the ace of diamonds
In between your left middle and index
Tapping, tapping against your thigh
You whispered,
"It's all becoming clearer for you now,"
I blinked

So now I'm at the place I abhor
Watching screensavers with windows like hideous sperm
Wiggling about with their colourful panes
Through I assume clear liquid
How disgusting
I miss you

Nice poem.

I can totaly relate to that whole thing, from the cold to the snow to getting on a bus and being stared out from having bright orange pants... I really like the end too with the screensavers and the floating windows.

Alida has always been a person with bright orange pants. Never the norm, always the intrigue.

I wrote this while wathcing <Odyssey 5>, its a sci-fi (yes, another one) ... but it is not the science that gets to me, it is the life that is written into it. Its about getting a second chance.

: Regrets, too late
Quote:
Like most things in my life
I pay little attention to them
like that squeky sound at my door
or that drip from my water pipe
and the rush of air when I walk pass the bakery
but now it all seem so real
so much more in my conscious mind
because they all remind me of a time long ago
as I hear that squek when you crip up on me
or the drip that you keep trying to contain
and every morning you insist on getting bread from berrys
how much they mean to me now
I wished I had notice them before
now all is gone, much like you
I have only the faint memory of happiness
as I sip this cold coffee
I miss you so much
if only these tears would go away long enough
for me to see you clearly in this picture frame
I am sorry for not loving you more
My love, my life, my everything


Its strange when I finished this, I can only think of my mom. God bless her soul.

Good night people.

Toast, so sorry, I totally forgot to compliment on your poem.

<Away Forever> is really nice. I feel the frustration creep up on my mind when I read it. As if threatening to break straight out. Beautifully written.

been working on something on my spare time and had to put down all my "creative" works, poems and short stories are really getting the bulk of this "lay" over ...

Will try to post more.

.:: Only Child ::.

May you forever be free
Blessed be these that carry you
Across these vapid sands
Bringing you home to me

May these flames burn evermore
Somewhere in your soul
May a colourless bodice dance in your dreams
Scion of Elysium and Hades
Brought once together in a bond
Never again

Only Child, may you forever sing
Notes of beauty alone
They will stand strong
For as long as you run
For as long as you romance the earth with your toes
May you forever be free...

For those who are in a relationship or in a marriage (male only) you will understand.

: RIP
Quote:
Why do you do this
always clinging on to nothing
what is there for you
reminding me of these futalities
all I want is a little
freedom to do what I want
and you must come around
barging into my realm
do I ignore you?
no, I gave you all the time you need
and all I ask for is half an hour of peace
yet you continue to pester me
even when you promise me you won't
so why do you do this
what difference would it make
if you went in laurel or lancome?


Enjoy.

The forums are a little slow these days, maybe it is because it is still january and people have yet to come to terms that A FULL YEAR has passed again.

Me? I am just going on with the threadmill doing what I always do. That and making some changes in my life like, putting my signature on a project that I have no what so ever chance of completing, so that I will test my metal, so to speak, and see if I am really a genius or just a fraud. The truth can be really damming.

: Emotional Relativity
Quote:
Fear
Yeah, I know him
he is my neighbour
always spits and curses

Anger
I know him too
he is secound cousin on my moms side
never what you expect him to be

Envy
Now, thats a hot babe
she knows things about me
that even I never did

Regret
that is a close friend
met him the day I was born
always around to remind me of things

Happiness
nope, never heard of him
is he a friend of yours
maybe someday we will meet

Humour
thats my name
how did you know?
oh, stupid me its own my name tag.
So, do you want fries with that?


Technically, it is not really a poem, but I would love to think of it as one ...

It's close enough to a poem. I like it. It flows nice.

: Insanity strikes
Quote:
How many voices do you hear
when you are all alone and afraid
one tells you that time is grave
Another tells of a story of regrets
then there is the one that says its your fault
and the ever faithful that says are you gonna end it all?
more and more voices crowd into the mind
everyone trying to convince me their truths
whom shall I listen to
So crowded, so confuse
Voices upon voices catch me and turn
In the mist of all this another speaks
"They are all true, you know ..."
"But know this too ..."
"At the end, it is I who will choose"
"So go and live, venture forth"
"For in the very end ... "
"It is how you live that I see ..."
"... and from that you shall save yourself from you"


Now, I know this might sound religious, but the story behind it is really a person borderlining to insanity that is trying to recover from his eternal fall into the voices of madness.

Enjoy.

Sometimes it is just being me that counts

|--1 poem by john
|-So Cold
|Icy needles
|Striking into my soul
|Ripping my being to shreds
|From the inside out
|Sharper then any dagger
|Mightier then any sword
|Cold words
|Make cold cuts
|Deeply in the mind
|Frozen scars
|Never to be left behind

It's so cold.

Touching your face with clawed fingers
Death upon an eyeless mount
Your hourglass...
Has broken, my love.

let me say this b4 anyone else, other than alida's talent for poems. She is amazing in her ability to choose the best way to show her eyes in a forum avatar.

This new one is by far the most sexiest one I have ever seen. It gives me fantasies.

... enjoy.

When I closed my eyes, and read my mind.
This is what came out.

: Eyes wide shut
Quote:
Make it to the wind
sing it like it should
dreams are dime a dozen
does it make it real
Should the dead be silent
maybe just a peep
tell us now oh great one
why should lovers weep
sometimes I think my mind has a life of its own.

enjoy.

.:: A Letter to the Gods ::.
Your precious one has failed you

That little feather you once put in my hair
Still reflects the far away moonlight
In little blue bands, courting the ebony
Just like it did, back then

Sharp eyes, laden with sorrow
With tears in our own we both reach out
And attempt to drown the pair

Our hands so cold they feel like burning
We can't focus on the thrashing masses before us
Dear all the hundreds of billions of gods
Why did we ever choose to do this

We hold each raven under the water
Feeling ourselves start to die alongside with them
Sopping wings slapping uselessly in the waters
Cries of surprise and pain marred by bubbles

Feeling the throes grow weaker
My tears add to the waters of drowning
I can't stand committing this atrocity any longer
And release my wet hands from the bird's soaked form

With a sickening gasp the beak rips through the water
Gaping and sucking in air
The beauteous thing heaves itself from the pail and lies
Panting and shuddering upon the earth
It was afraid to die

I grasp your hand and try to wrest it away
But eyes of ice meet my own and
My hand still grasped tight about your wrist I
With a whimper of horror look down

The water still lapping from the motion
Distorts and yet holds clear
The image of your raven
And the last breath it ever lets go

Loosened feathers float all around it
And with a shudder and a painful cry
My hand claps straight to my mouth and
I fall back, spilling the pail

Your eyes staring dumbly
At the body, still clutched in your hand
In a moment that seemed so slow time might have ate it
They slid closed and your body went limp
You fell heavily onto your side

Obsidian hair entangled with obsidian feathers
Both dripping, dripping clarity
Soaking uselessly into the earth
They lay still as my terror bled out

I had let out a scream so loud and so primal
I thought for a moment it couldn't be me
But you were gone and had gone through with it
Gone so very gone, so far away

With eyes opened wide and yet unseeing I turned
To see my soul, that raven
She looked at me with such disgust and contempt
And I looked at her with sorrow and pain

And then she flew away from me

Those little noises a frightened animal makes
Wracked my ribcage so
Water slowly crept up and touched my knees
The spilt bucket lay a short distance away

Silence held the moment
Other than my grief at my hideous crime
We had drowned our ravens
Though one of them remained alive

My hands put themselves to my ears
I sought to drown the quiet out with more
And with a cough and a sob I realised

That little feather you once put in my hair
Still reflects the far away moonlight
In little blue bands, courting the ebony
Just like it did, back then.

Alida, if only words could say what I feel right now, I would feel much better. But there are none. Only tear filled eyes and a heavy heart.

life is many things, if not just pain and suffering.
there is always hope.

|--1 poemmmmememem by john
|-Vision upon the Glass
|I've seen so much
|With two small eyes
|For my sight is more then what I see
|We've watched as the first morning light
|Crept cautiously over the trees
|We've seen the bird that was chirping
|In that same early morning breeze
|We've watched the night evaporate
|By the glow of billions of stars
|We've seen as time thus shifted by
|And came to rest upon our arms
|We've seen the world melt away
|Into razor shards of glass
|We've watched it then as god itself
|Slowly repaired that past
|We've seen galaxies fade
|as light turned to shade
|while silence then became
|the world's one true serenade
|Through the eyes does one have sight
|But my vision sees so much clearer
|For we have seen not only the light
|But the shadow upon the mirror
|Woven into the essence
|Of the sparkle in this glass
|Lies more to find that what you see
|Glimmering so softly upon the mirror
|When you look deeper
|Then you to shall see
|The darkness that is the mirror



Shimmer on

First time I ever visited this forum, and hey a poem thread! I've read some of the poems and many of you are very good at it, you should be proud.

I suppose I could post some stuff, I don't write poems but I write songs, and I try to write lyrics in a reasonably meaningful poetic style. Some songs just don't work without the music, or sound stupid, but I'll have a look through my stuff and maybe post a couple (also I have recordings of some songs but this isn't the place to pimp my site ).

Okay, all are converted a bit to remove chorus etc:

Fly
Walking down the street on a summer's day
People inside, still afraid of the rain
Cause what's been before could come back again
Better to dream than to feel the pain

But they can read the future in a cup of tea, he said
"I can see everything and you can't see through me"
But I can see the cracks running through his beliefs
Standing on quicksand, afraid to flee

Lying in bed watching re-runs in my head
Of the past and all the things I prob'ly should have said
Plan out the future in elaborate schemes
Writing hopes on cardboard dreams

And so many of the things that I thought would be
Are scattered into dreams like entropy
Like rain.

New dawn, older themes
Sailing ships of paper dreams
Back to the start; it's all the same
Like rain, it all evaporates again

You could be safe inside
Live out your life under clouded skies
But if I could fly
Build our wax wings for a moment of sunshine
Could die; well at least we tried
If they said it's not worth it they lied
And no-one can ask you to justify
Your heart

EDIT: comes off a bit disjointed as a poem sorry, cause the verse/bridge/chrous structure is lost

Something Real
It's a kiss on the cheek the tells you you're real
It's the permanent scars dictating how you feel
It's the truth you forgot about so long ago

It's a message in a bottle to the world across the sea
Where there live all the people that you never really wanted to be
But it means so little and the waves are so high
That it might never get to the other side

All for something real, now
Something to break all these barriers down

A minute is a second when you feel like you're free
But it can take a lifetime to say what you wanna be
And I can ask the questions but you don't have to answer me

It's that mem'ry from your childhood you only see in dreams
And the moments you remember for eternity
But the truth of the matter is you never really wanted to see, anyway

It's a hope from nothing, that falls from the sky
It's a beautiful day; you might as well go outside
It's a smile from someone you've never even seen
And it means just anything you want it to mean, now

There's heaps more but that'll do I think. I have quite a variety of stuff. Enjoy.

These are the Haiku poems I made in the Haiku thread in the general forums(don't report the thread, it's receiving much publicity)XD.

First Post:
Leaves twitch through the wind
carrying away the lies of yesterday sorrow
awakening the sky in me


Second Post:
when the world goes mad
I'll enter a path of least resistence
just like flowers through graves
