Black Speck
By Fickle
IT buzzes annoyingly around my head
Like a beat-up thought racing around my brain.
IT dips and dives with my conciousness
Waiting till I am least aware.
Then POW it comes and hits my face,
rears itself back and attacks again.
IT sounds like static, it moves like oil,
IT tries to find purchase
on every little hair.
I scream, I rant, I bat my hands
I sneeze, I plead, I cry for help.
But IT stays with me the little thing,
Angrily buzzing itself around
My head, My arms, My face, my eyes.
It is nothing but an annoying fly,
a black speck that hums in my ears.
But its been flying around me forever,
Following me for years.
Friends and family say its not there
How can't they see it, How can't they hear?
The buzzing fills all of the air.
I scream I rant and claw at the air,
but still they say it isn't there.
So now I'm in this soft colored room.
The walls are padded, and I am safe and sound.
But oh, whats this? A crack in the floor?
NO! Here it is! Here oh God, Forever more!

Welcome all. The new guys, willowshade. Fickle.

Gemstone, your poems are nice. Love reading it.


Lee ... ... as always my dark prince.

Here is todays

: Questioning faith
Quote:
Even when reality seems not
I still think that it is me
that causes my life to be dark
and stormy in its path
where nothing is proper
and people are mean

Loosing faith
is making me rethink
of all those times
when I blindly see
to not question anything
oh what a bliss

I envy those that are simple
the ones who will live
when the end day comes
those that will flee
and then saved
but I doubt it be me
cause I have fallen
I am no longer whole
no longer me


Hope you enjoy this.

Sometimes it is just being me that counts

Morning People.
Here is todays contribution.

: Morning Dreams
Quote:
I can hear the morning sing
a song of new beginings
with the sun shining down
upon crystal dews upon the leafs

Before I know what the day will bring
I already have your smile in my memory
that light kiss upon my cheek
the seal that keeps me strong

What more can a man ask for
no greater love than this
that you give without thinking twice
even then my heart wonders why
GOD gave me such precious as you

I know there can be nothing more
even in all my dreams
you are above all the rest
my life and my destiny
I hope you enjoy.

Sorry for being out of contact for a hiwle... loved reading through this thread.. brings back memories good and bad. Nice to be able to just reflect sometimes.


Losing It

I look back on all I've done
All I do
All I will do
I need more than what I have to get me through
I lie in want of more
Oh God!
I implore
Leave me alone, lying on this cold floor
I look over the faulted holes
Crumbling my soul
No longer whole
I need respite from this painful woe
Overshadowing pleasure
Stormy weather
Regions of nether
Will I continue to hurt forever?
Sulking within
My patience grows thin
Never shall I win
I've lost all I worked for once again

Bound by chain of dwarven magic, A tale of trickery, long and tragic,
Sword in jaw, awaiting the day, Ragnarok, when all gods shall pay

These are the lyrics as far as I can tell from my memorisation from a group from Australia called "The Herd", the track is called "Too Late". If one or two words are incorrect then I appologise as I said its from my head.

This has to be one of the most meaningful set of lyrics that I have ever listened to and I find them uncanny because They are all encompasing of lagre portions of the way I see life.

*******************************************

When I, get a break will it be to late.
When I, hesitate will the sun not shine.
Is there enough inspiration to draw from?
When I, get around to up and drop these rhymes.
Cause I'm, Just a little bit muddled up, think always,
write the same thing with different inquires.
Really in control of mind and soul?
Why do they,sell enlightenment for fouls gold?

Give me soul,
give me strength,
give me colour,
give me depth,
give me heart,
give me courage,
give me intelligence.
Give me fight to resist,
give me light to let me live,
give me boldness to follow my convictions I beg.
Give me fire just to burn,
give me climax to earn,
give me examples,
mediocraties so I'll be stronger.
Listen to my song so I can ponder,
watch'em as I wonder,
presents the sencelessness, you there?

Who's up for troubles,
I'll take you to another zone,
another script, give me shit, give the dog a bone.
I'm out here all alone give me friends to keep me company,
Give me confict's to keep me company,
give me addiction to keep me company,
give me war give me harmony,
give me all above and all that's under me.
Give me nothing cause I dont need a hand,
I got a ladder if you tried to help I'd probably just pull you in.

Give me cynicism only so I can deny it,
give me temptation so I can try before I buy it,
once the coldened hearts rise above the heads it's still.
Its always schizophrenic never fearsome.

Give me blindness,
so I can learn what's really light.
Let me shrink,
so nobodys' confused about my height.
Give me humour,
so I can laugh at all my contradictions,
give me your positions,
till I can see that they're all usless.
Give me one trip,
to stop us beating round the bush,
give me just one push,
please tell me what I'm doing.
I dont want to know if I'm write or wrong,
but these are human creations,
please give me patience,
give-me-more-patience.
Give me the power to resist innovation,
I dont want to need to be innovative,
I'm far too unqualified.
I'm on a hiding to none,
If I chosse to look at it that way,
If I work out the secrets,
Do I get back pay?

Give me an appetite to swallow you whole,
what if I dont want to play your rules?
I simpily wont devour.
Constantly evaluate you good points I don't want to be sour.
We're all capable of redemption so I dismiss vengance.

We're all capable of redemption,
So I dismiss vengance ..........

When I, get a break will it be to late.
When I, hesitate will the sun not shine.
Is there enough inspiration to draw from?
When I, get around to up and drop these rhymes.
Cause I'm, Just a little bit muddled up, think always,
write the same thing with different inquires.
Really in control of mind and soul?
Why do they, sell enlightenment for fouls gold?

Ah the greate outdoors have visited us yet again. Well let me see if I can get my hands on that group. The lyrics are nice. Lets see if the melody goes with it. ... thanks for the tip Visual.

Ian ... ... after spending time contemplating my life ... I have found that no memories are ever bad. yes some might be a little sad and some anger. But none are ever bad because we are who we are becouse of these memories that we have.

: Memories
Quote:
Who am I
I say to myself one day
how does one measure up
to the perfectness of man
what makes a saint better
then the begger down the street

Who makes the choices
that determines our path in life
what governs our very destiny
is it not more than a stastical guess
between whats wrong from right

We live in tommorow as if it was yesterday
it is the illusion that makes it worst
untill we change whats inside
we will always make the same choice
moving round and round
the race to chase our own tail

From the memories we know
what we did and did not
from these past version of ourselves
me mold a new tommorow
hoping that somehow it will be enough
to take us up another level
a future build upon
past successes and failures


yeap. Stirred by Ian's post. Yet it sounds true enough ... don't you think?

Enjoy.

Something that I wrote on another thread. About how sometimes we all fall into the heat of things and forget to pull ourselves out of it.


: Aftermath
Quote:
the flames will go away
the anger die
whats left are ashes
and no one left to cry
be there ampathy
and curiosity
maybe then man will learn
to look above the grime
and see whats true and not
thus leave the dirt behind


hope you enjoy it.

I won't say goodbye, I'll just get the fuck out!

Well it's obvious that I'm no longer welcome here no more, so this will probably be one of my last post as well as my last poem. Easy come, easy go right? Anywayz I had to write this for english class.

I Do Not Understand

I do not understand
Why Bush was elected to office
Why we blame drug users for terrorism
(Can we all say, “Scapegoat”?)
Why the news only reports tragedy
But most of all I do not understand
Why bass is better than treble
500W of bass and some sorry tweeters?
Sound is more enjoyable when you hear both sides
You might as well set the balance all the way to the right
What I do understand the most is
To when to stop trying to understand
To know when nothing is enough
Because
“All I know is that I don’t know nothing,
And that’s just fine.”

Understood by: Lyle Wilson

Quote from Operation Ivy’s Knowledge

Hi

Twilightseer, one of the mods here.

I have edited your sig and removed the goatse link from it. Such stuff falls in the category of objectionable material that is not permitted by the forum rules.
Please, do not post that kind of thing again, in your sig or anywhere else.

Have a nice day.

Qhobbes ... I hope you will still come by anyhow. because as far as I see it, you are one of the family in this thread. Your contributions are well liked and appreciated.

As for the discussion between you and the mods on the subject matter is a private matter among you and them. Which I hope will not cuase another major thread war (see GE threads for further info).

Personaly, I would like to thank you on all your contributions and participation in making this thread such a success. Which I hope many more will join in and make it even better.

All the best. and I do hope you will drop by just for a read, even if you don't post. Your support is much appreciated.

As for the others. Well ... post and post more. for in the poems you contribute, you learn and grow at the same time.

: The very end
Quote:
Even when the sun dont shine
and the air grow stale
Even all hope dies
and life grows pale
Even when all is lost
where only memories survive
I believe that in the very end
truth will prevail
I know that at the final day
light will be unveiled
in peace we set sail


Hope you enjoy this.

: Ultimatum
Quote:
Retreive from the depths of past
the buried axe found again
blurred pictures of anguish
ingrained upon fragile hearts
what good can come from this misery
where lies the lesson learned
metal bringing fourth more fire
into the furnace of sin
with names of purity
they stain their hands
betraying their life away
yet at the very end
all thats left
are the cockraches
in trenched between the stones


well ... the poem pretty much speaks for itself.

enjoy.

Wow... like those last few a lot, Izchan, glad to see you have returned to us.

QHOBBES, from recent problems of my own with admins and mods at another ofrum,I have found its better to just swallow your pride, and stay than to leave friends behind. Even if it is just a forum, it still does feel like a family, as Izchan said. Its hard on those who care about you to see you go, and usually its hard for the one leaving as well. I hope you decide to stick around and get through it.

War


Watching from above
I see it start anew
Another thoughtless war
I see it from my view
Ignorance causing pain
Understanding is lost
Words thrown like blades
Cutting like bitter frost
Eyes blinded by rage
Prevented from seeing
Minds clouded by anger
Losing all sense of being
Tears are shed and blood is spilled
Though the end is not near yet
Grudges are held, all-consuming
Fighting again before the sun sets
I withdraw from the battle
I flee in fright and cowardess
Leaving friends and foes alike
To fall amongst the gory mess
I can run no longer though
My legs stand firm as stone
Into the tumultous battle
I will be thrown
If I fall this final time
At least in honor I shall die
Defending those for whom I care
From battle I shall no longer fly
Pierced through by stinging tongue
Against it, no armor can defend
It fills my heart and soul with pain
Longer than flesh and bone to mend
I stand strong against the volley
Though my feelings are ripped and shred
It feels as though I've lost compassion
Would it be better if I were dead?
Falling at last under the brutal onslaught
To the wounds I succumb
Though I fought bravely till the end
At last my final moment has come

Bound by chain of dwarven magic, A tale of trickery, long and tragic,
Sword in jaw, awaiting the day, Ragnarok, when all gods shall pay

Ian ... very well written. ... expressions are there. Though i feel that we are missing something important.

Lee. Well .. most of poem are written while I post. So you can try that method of contribution.


: the missing
Quote:
I know I am missing something
an fragment from the whole
the part which makes me complete
or should I say more humane?

Like the word on the tip of my tounge
I struggle to catch it with all my might
yet it eludes me totally

what it that which I can't find?

So silently I move on
sensing that emptiness inside
not giving up hope yet
for now I wait for my time


So general that it could mean anything. But that is the part that makes me ponder most.

What say you all?

Enjoy.

Sarcasm has been one of my biggest flaw. Most of the time, issues could have been avoided by me just keeping quiet. But then again, my mind will tell me that life would be so much boring if people were to accept the medicore lifestyle we have today.

: Sarcasticaly Yours
Quote:
Yes, I know I do it badly
I understand there are other ways
No, I do not do it intentionally
but that's the way I am made
Maybe if I were to simmer it down
my words not so strong or bombastic
the acceptance might just get better

Right, there are things that could change
for better or worst its a probability
should it make you feel better
I know my actions cause you pain
but my intentions was for your realization
that things are not necessarily what it seems
that life is more than just 'as it is'
don't let the 'everydays' drive you down
you spend a lifetime wondering why
when all you need to do is to open your eyes
Then you will be able to see
life have not yet passed you by
and friends are with you in every path
even me, this person that you dislike
is your friend, if you would take me.
A new poem. A strange one to boot. But it seems my writing pattern is changing again. Hopefully for the better.

Enjoy.

: The shortcut
Quote:
I walk the darken path
A shortcut to get home ealier
so that I can relax my fears
the stress ingrained within my nerves
yet no matter how hard I try
the road never seems to end
how much longer do I need to go?
A little more now
I tell myself silently
Just a few more steps and it will be done
and yet the road goes on

Thus I hold my foot down now
seeking a barring of my position
only to realize
that I am still where I started
what have I been doing all along
my efforts used and wasted
the dark path leads to nowhere
in circle I have walked
stumbling my way in the darkness

When I should have taken the other
where there is light to show my way
the one that has rocks and mountains
where valleys and sea block my path
for at the end of the journey
is the little house by the apple tree
where I can rest my tired body
Enjoy

Had to do this project for my Egnlish class... we had to "look" at a certain thing in 13 ways. This is honestly the first time I've been pretty happy with my writing... enjoy

I
Beautiful blood
oozes out
as the CD
carves into my skin.

II
A CD flies across
the room
to its destiny
like a frisbee.

III
Hear the silence
a CD is played
music meets the silence.

IV
Sweet CD’s
cannot escape
monstrous mouths
pancakes can’t either.

V
Green goblins
exit the space-craft
grab our globe
and reenter the CD.

VI
Cool coasters
hold the hot tea
as the CD
is stained.

VII
Wobbly wheels
simultaneously spin
as the CD
rolls on the road.


VIII
I read the reflection
of myself
the CD stares back at me.

IX
All DJ’s
have hundreds of CD’s
prepared
to dazzle
the dancers.

X
A CD
is laid
in the sandwich
waiting
to be devoured
by a lettuce-lover.

XI
The
shattered CD
lays on the ground
as it reflects
my image
in
pieces.

XII
Chewing the CD
waiting for
the donut’s sweetness
to stimulate
my senses.

XIII
The halo
spins on top
of my head
in peace
like a CD
in its player.

GO CANUCKS GO

Supremacey. That is a very interesting way to look at a CD.
I will never look at them the same way again.

Post more, if you write them. New blood is always better then them always reading my work ... ... it starts to get stale after a while ...

Contemplating by Lee

Gaze upon the midnight sky;
As the cold wind blows
Softly against my face.

A tablet and a pen in my hand;
Writing about a paradise,
Similar to this land.

But in this place, as foretold,
Angelic femmes sitting under a tree,
Their faces never creased, never grow old,
And the wings shall make them be free.

That's my story about my paradise,
They're more to contemplate...
But dammit my hands have turned to ice.

Here's a poem I just wrote, it's pretty long and ongoing.
____________________________________
Imperfect by Lee

Is it any wonder?
Your image will not leave my head
Dancing with me in the fields
Twirling together and falling to the grass
Trapped in a world of memories
I cannot break free of you

Is it any wonder?
I cannot sleep
You haunt me even in my dreams
Calling quietly to me, like you used to
I try to run, but I keep looking back
And it turns out I was not running at all

Is it any wonder?
I cannot eat
The food looks poisonous to me
As if it has all been touched by you
I forget about it soon
And just hope I will look better for you

Is it any wonder?
I've been going insane since you left
Wanting to hurt something, anything
But only hurting myself, in the quiet of the night
The daggers blade kissing my skin ever so softly
And my blood falls onto pictures of you

Is it any wonder?
You were scared to leave me
Frightened of what I can do
You should still be afraid
Because you hurt me, and I will come for you
And you will finally see what I really am

Is it any wonder?
People don't befriend me
Because of the gossip and the stories
That surrounds me in all my glory
You didn't know about them though
You made a mistake

Is it any wonder?
I wait for you eternally
Never realizing you are not returning
My dagger tastes my blood every day
And I only want it to taste yours
As my eyes start to get heavy

Is it any wonder?
I lie, dying alone
All the thoughts of you coming back
Swarming my mind
And I cut myself too deeply
Know that there is no one around to help me

Is it any wonder?
That you didn't come back
I hoped you would
I am drowning in my life, still wanting you
Still thinking I will find you one day
Even if I have to search for eternity

Remember me?

To My Father

Little bird, please sing your song for me.
Lift your once strong wings and fly again,
Away from darkness that you wish to flee,
Far from your fateful flight ended with pain,

Back to the blue where you are most at home
Where endless opportunities abound.
Return to those you love and call your own,
The cozy nesting place your young surround.

Reverse all time and throw away neglect.
Your path was once so hopeful and so clear,
Yet turned quite sharply like your twisted neck.
Little bird, did you feel very much fear?

A young child weeps deeply, crying for you
Though your good heart before she never knew.

Go right ahead jedi...
Here's a poem that took me all day to come up with...it's quite lengthy but im sure you guys will enjoy it...my best work so far
_______________________
Alluring Darkness

The journey started,
With only one,
Walking down this path,
Called life.

Thru the journey,
The road had split,
And down the path,
Less taken she went.

Finding new,
And interesting things along the way.
Meeting different people,
Keeping only few close to heart.

Now she finds,
The last path she took,
Is as predictable as the others.
Same twists,
Same turns,
Always ending with a curve.

But it is here,
In the center of this path,
She stops.
Glancing around,
Finding a path not traveled,
Leading into the trees.

She faces a tough decision,
To keep walking,
A path that she finds boring.
Or to walk the path,
That seems alluring.

Glancing down,
That familiar path,
Seeing that predictable curve,
A fork would come soon after.

Glancing down,
That new path she sees,
Where it leads to,
Is hidden among the trees.

But why see it now,
And not sooner?
Why stop here,
On this path,
And not the others?

She steps off that path,
She had been traveling for so long,
Into the darkness,
She finds alluring.

As she steps,
Away from that path,
A small glass figurine falls,
From her hands,
Breaking,
Shattering.

And tho she travels,
This new path,
With curiousity peeked;
She leaves behind,
That fragile,
And broken figurine.

People. I thank you for returning after so long. I was very worried that people have all left the forum and only lee and me are here.

People with poems just post. We welcome you with our arms wide open.

Lee ... ah ... Arcane ... ... I have to say, you poems have grown more mature over the postings. Do I detect that your literature class is paying off? .. ... keep it up.

Trista ... ... Yeah ... one of our old friends. How are things coming along? ... more poems please ...

Jedi. Let me put it this way, if the force is with you, don't hide it behind a cloak, ok? .. ... send them in.

: The Chosens
Quote:
If I could say it differently
I would have done so
but the truth is harsher
than the lies than were told
I could not forgive
those that knew better
the ones that was responsible
the people that we entrust
I will not back away
from the sticks and stones
nor the words of damnation
nothing could crush my soul
Lastly I will not stay silent anymore
of all the vanities
the sins from their jeolousy
that which bring forth war and death
but most of all
killing the innocents from within
these murderous of dreams
the bartards of politics


One of my stronger toned poems. But after what I read in the newspapers these days, can you blame me?

Enjoy

Sometimes it is just being me that counts

I didn't totally get that but hey it sounds nice And thats a good poem ya got there too
May the force be with you izchan

Does it ever happen to you when all your bad memories that were locked away
And forgotten about come back and you just want to cry?
Its happened to me and all I can do his hold my head high
My black thoughts take control and lifes like shit
I lose my self in a dark chilling ditch
The darknesss inside me taking control
I snap back to reality losing my soul
When will these dark thoughts from within stop reaching out to mortal pain?
When will I gain those who trust me again??

ok God knows how the heck I came up with that poem but I just found it in my pc folder....enjoy

Wel well well ... jedi ... the force is with us all ...
your contribution is very much appreciated. Keep them coming.

Arcane ( ... still prefer to call you lee .. ... ) ... well the movies paid off too ... I think ...


: Now
Quote:
Now I am lost
where is myself
my soul does not know
when to exhale

Now I am blind
where is the light
the wisdom from god
have lost its own might

Now I am dead
stiff as a nail
never understanding
neither prevail

Now at the end
I am where I began
then let just start over
life is just a game


Sound like one of my younger poems. But it just seemed to pop up when I am typing this.

Enjoy.

[ArcanE] and TwilightsEcho are the only usernames that I use the most on poetry forums...but Lee is fine
________________________________________
You by Lee

I try to be what you wanted me to be,
Only shot down like a bird out of a tree,
Our life together, so fragile, yet unbroken,
Leading myself into deadly sin.

Just figured that love could never be true,
Lost in the sea of anguish and apathy,
I could never be the same old 'Lee',
So I might as well get away from you.

Leaving this house for good,
Going back to my ghetto hood,
Left behind me a everlasting memory,
Pain and sorrow, between you and me.

My turn to shine

The things that inspire is Linkin Park actually, a few other things inspire me too but its mostly music.

A warm glow inside me builds up then explodes,
pains holds the reign,
All my happy thoughts are vanquishe,
I feel incomplete,
Hungter and suffering take over in my dreams,
My yearning for light heartedness grows in dejction,
All I pray for is redemption,
I'm lost in this madened dream never to awake and realise my mistakes

I'll put up another one too while I've got my note pad

I sit here in darkness with only a candle as light,
The rain beats against the window,
As the wind howls by,
A street lamp flickers,
And my candle dims,
Old memorys return to my mind,
Lonliness has engulfed me,
Solitude is great,
Its one of those times when we learn who are our real mates.

Hi, izchan and everyone. Things have been a little crazy for me lately. My life is crazy and I'm so busy with school. It's weird, I started writing poems again. I have these three 90 minute classes in a row on Tues/Thurs. My imagination just starts going after a while. My best stuff is done during class (this includes drawings haha). I really am a good student.

Anyways! I want to explain my last poem.

Quote:
To My Father

Little bird, please sing your song for me.
Lift your once strong wings and fly again,
Away from darkness that you wish to flee,
Far from your fateful flight ended with pain,

Back to the blue where you are most at home
Where endless opportunities abound.
Return to those you love and call your own,
The cozy nesting place your young surround.

Reverse all time and throw away neglect.
Your path was once so hopeful and so clear,
Yet turned quite sharply like your twisted neck.
Little bird, did you feel very much fear?

A young child weeps deeply, crying for you
Though your good heart before she never knew.
My dad died three months after I turned three years old. One day, soon after, I was sitting in my living room playing, when I heard a loud noise, a BANG at the window. I went outside to investigate. On the ground beneath the window was a bird. It had flown directly into the window, broken its neck, and was dead. It broke my heart. I began to cry, and cried for hours. My mom helped me put it in a box bury it in the yard. Later, my mom told me she knew I wasn't only crying for the bird...

My dad was 32. He had a gorgeous wife, a three year old daughter, and a six month old son. Life was good. He was just sailing along, everything was as it should be. But suddenly his heart attacked him. Like the bird, he didn't see it coming. He didn't even see it at all. No one did.

Trista...that poem touched something deep inside of me that I cannot explain. I can relate to that in so many different ways that may have endless meanings. Maybe in the future I'll open myself up to the true feelings that dwell inside me.

In the meanwhile, here's my contributition:
_______________________________________
There's Nothing Left Inside of Me

There's nothing left of me,
Only a sullen face to see,
My heart is cold from misery,
A stone figure, left to bleed.

Twisted joy spills forth in my head,
Killing itself, thoughts of the dead.
Sadness engulfs this once beautiful soul,
Greatness once bloomed, now its just cold.

My skin turns pale and peels away,
Life has changed drastically this day,
I'm no longer what I am used to be,
Because there's nothing left of me.

Here's something different I wrote tonight. Need to get away from writing dark stuff for awhile and look at the lighter side of things.
________________________________

Sensual Crush by Lee

As I gaze at the stars, millions of miles away,
Thinking of the one I love almost everyday.
Thoughts of her that would never cease,
Dreams that bring my mind at ease.

My heart intertwine with desire,
Mind racing as if on fire.
An image of you embedded in my head,
Dreaming of her as I lay in bed.

Her starry eyes staring at me,
A twinkling of brightness that I can see;
Our lips pressed in ecstacy,
A moment together, lived as a fantasy.

*POOF*

I wish though, that it was true,
That both our hearts were as one,
And together it would weigh a ton.

I may not be a poet or romanticist
But there are three sacred words that I like to say,
Is that Britney, 'I Love You'.

Trista ... most of our best works comes from our worst fear and deepest hurt. Like so many things in life, we usually take things for granted.

It is seldom that we question the constants in our life, until one good day, it is no longer constant anymore ... ... nothing is forever, and because of that, it becomes precious and becomes part of us for eternity.

: Constantly yours
Quote:
Like a mountain you were there
always grand and solid
your strength forever filling me
never would I be who I am
if not for your visions
if not for your love

Yet even mountains disappear
clearing itself for the future
you went away quietly
telling us it would all be fine
even now I can still hear you say
"life is finite but love is not"

So now my strength comes forth within
from the memories I have of you
like the waterfall, never ending
and I will forever remember
the teachings you part to me
live life without ever regreting


enjoy.

Sometimes it is just being me that counts

WOW Lee (dont mind me calling you that do you?) anyway that is the most beautiful thing I have seen in a while.
Trista thats a nice poem you have too.
izchan your poems are lovely.
I aint put one up in a while, so I'll post a few now.

Day turns to night,
The stars are dimly lit,
The moon sails alone across a midnight sky,
Night turns to day,
My mind awakes,
I'm greeted by the sun,
And white fluffy clouds drift from here to there,
This is peace.

Not the best poem I've ever written but still.

Fate of darkness

May it be,
winter, autumn, spring and summer,
when you could have it all,
Leaves of memories collect at my feet,
I surrender to you and admit defeat,
The moon smiles alone as it drifts by,
A cold chill blows and I'm left with emptyiness inside,
Lost in a dark memory looking back on harsh times,
Can't you see what you've done?
All this suffering and pain for the end of a war,
And another war to reign,
For wars there is no gain,
Just going in continuos circles,
Thats the fate of darkness,
To never live again.

I might of posted that poem before I forogt sorry if I did.

enjoy them though

:Rain:

- cold but soft , always hugging you , never leaving , just saying hello. It's there because it needs to be. Because it gives life to the rest of the world. It's quiet and colorless , it does not need color , it does not need to be seen , because it knows you'll remember it. It moves you as if it where the sound of life.

When it's awake I don't feel afraid of the world
afraid of the Empire, the Empire known as me
The rain carries my paper sail-boat with pride
it loves my crafts of solitude.

I cannot walk anymore
My wounds are creative
My eyes? Helpless
My sadness competitive
Must quiet my mind
Why did she leave?

The rain is my friend and I'm proud of it.

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
So that's my poem
Hoped you liked it.

Jedi, Fate of Darkness is very well written, concise, clear and straight to the point well done!
_______________
KnightFairy, welcome to the Poetry Thread @ WinAmp Forums. Love the imagery and imagination in your poem. Keep on contributing everyone!
____________________________________________
Ex-Girlfriends by Lee

Never would I have thought,
Of all the wars we fought,
Only to one day talk to you again,
And try to be your best friend.

But no, you had to turn around,
Throwing me to the ground,
With your glowered eyes of hate,
A mouth from hell opened its floodgates.

Telling me all along,
That you were playing with my heart,
But I had to be strong,
And say, "Baby, that's why I had to part."

Leaving the scene with anguish,
A sad face that made me look like a fish,
But, hey at least I won't have to do that again,
Just trying to make amends with my ex-girlfriend.

Thanks for the compliment Lee
KnightFairy welcome to winamp, your poems are very imagnitive....... I like them
I'm bored so this is a poem I've written right now-

The memorys live again
as a storm cloud drifts in the sky
little sunlight has passed me by.

Darkness has filled this land
Taken adrift in the calm cool streams
But then again nothing is as it seems.

All this darkness will one day be gone
Passing like a bee to a flower
Then all the goodness will be restored.

If the darkness of earth will ever fall
And it comes to the end of the day
All those wars will be erased.

Until this darkness has dissapered
Until we have nothing to fear
This will be the last smile I fake.

One poem I just written this very moment enjoy

:FireStone:

Feathered and For gotten
They’ll shed the skin broken

Come with me to the forest deep
Find the one who bares my dreamful tears
Lift the sword of animus
Stand by the sun
It was my design to make you mine

Fruitful tethered fairys hither upon this waterfall
They smile their shyful eyes at me
Calling me to the water, I’m afraid to go in
The fairys salivate as I drown and fall asleep
One of them weaves my eyes into there Tapestry
I begin to se an image
I see her crying , scratching at the window
She sees something, I can’t quite make out what it is
But I can hear her screaming as if she expects me to
Be her saltus to this pain
Yes, it was my design to make you mine

Then a voice says to me…

Come follow me
Come be mine
We will trap you the way you should be
Come be my FireStone
Come be mine

…..and then I don’t wake up.
......................
Ya, I have some crazy dreams
