Wanna hear my skills?

"The fly"

I was walking one day under a tree,
I was like, "WTF no one can see me"
I thought about it and I thought like "Maybe it's a magical tree", but hey! it said "You shall die".
It made me cry, so I said to the fly.... "do you know
why it made my cry" because it's friday, and I dont want to die on friday.

Fin.

BTW: you guys make some awesome things.. very nice.

The other side of me
is the one which I don't see
but I know it exists
its a side that I am a stranger to
a part that I don't comprehend
Am I that person too?
That cold dark ego.
That uncaring bastard.
The souless dictator.
That really scares me
who am I really?
I don't know ...
We will just have to find out in time.

I could tell a thousand stories
but it wont calm your broken heart
One truth is all it takes
to covert the darn insecurity
yet why do you still deny your rest
bothering me with your dreams at night
did I not coffess it all?
who does your voice entralls?
I live to be with all you ask
just tell me what is it you want.
So that I can do it and then finally sleep
Merry christmas, Scrooge McD.


There were once a lot of talent here.
Now there is me and the toast man.

Merry christmas guys.

Enjoy.

|--1poem by john
|-Flutter by, flutterby;
|what a peculiar sensation?
|like the writhing pain of torturous night
|yet with the softest touch of silken sheets
|as the raging tempest of furious distrust
|but with a calmest ripple of lightest breeze
|Euphoria? I would love some of that
|served up in a glass shaped like the moon
|chilled and frozen beneath the late nights icy grasp
|melted and soothed through early night caress
|With a side of divine radiance
|baked on a sheet the size of the stars
|coddled and formed with loves tender hands
|molded and shaped with loves rough purpose
|Beyond the night, beyond the light,
|beyond, all, sight,
|This most peculiar sensation
|A rather dastardly yet effervecent rendation
|Of a rather peculiar creation,
|Simply together, love knows no better

You know the feeling. I bask and loathe in it.

|--1 christmas poem by john
|-Harumphmas
|To try and wrap
|Happiness in a box
|I reached out into the stars
|And grabbed three of the brightest
|I wanted to place
|A joke alongside
|I plucked it from creation, a hippo
|Undoubtably, one of the funniest
|I wanted to add
|Some holiday cheer
|But only one word came to mind
|Tactful, meaningful; yet certainly not the finest
|One last thing upon this box
|A seal for only you to open
|No mere lock, fastner, nor key
|Sealed with a heart, yet delivered by me

I love being able to make even the most random assortment of gifts meaningful through such a random jumble of words.
Life is good.

: Rough Interpretation
Quote:
ducks,
thats what came to mind
when you ask me
if you could love me
I am not sure why
those feathered fiends
could play a role
within my decision making
so I told you dear lover
it aint over
till the fat duck sings
and you look at me
with a strange gleam
Romance, does it mean anything?
Yeah baby,
but can we have in in green?
Merry christmas,
ducks and old man of seams.

|Me oh my
|I feel as if I could fly
|Stretch out my wings
|These beautiful shimmering things
|To paint my name in silver streaks
|Upon the canvas of the sky
|Dive amongst the seafoam whisps
|Of endless stretching expanse
|Swim amongst these airy lofts
|Through golden trimmed dollops of cream
|To soar, to soar,
|Amongst the stary sky
|I dream amongst the infinite chance
|Lost in my beautiful, azure, lie

Goodnight.

|--1 poem by john
|-Silver Secrets
|Pale moonlight trickles through silver haze
|Such glorious reflections upon this night
|Ponder through the misty shadows
|As time melds with infinity,
|Yet it all pales before the rage
|A thousand worlds melts in the flame
|While mind merges into being
|We lie awake upon this pause
|The plunge, before the wake
|As memories drift through the void
|Of lies, of lifes, of deaths, and of beginnings
|The reality begins to sink in as we slip beyond
|This time together, divine manifestation
|As if the very essence of eternity
|Bestowed a blessing brush of silent extacy
|Oh to reminisce upon this night
|This great, formless, hallowing night
|Lest never to forget this feeling
|Through even the worst of blackened hopes
|As demons wings abuse the pristine seas
|I come at last to this secret meaning
|All else pales, against this glorious vision
|Painted with gods own hands
|Painted, only within
|The finest polished glass

To try and convey a feeling that is so far beyond any rational definition, it's a wonderfully fullfilling task when you actually come up with some jumble of seemingly random sounds that in some way grasps the entirety and awesomness of a feeling that can only be summed up as purely, divine. It feels wonderful my friends, oh yes it does.

I happen to love the line:
|Through even the worst of blackened hopes
|As demons wings abuse the pristine seas
I have no idea were it came from but it just makes such a beautiful image for myself. Sorry for critiqueing my own poem, but I just love that line.

: In which there is toast
Quote:
There aren't a lot of things in life
which we difine as beauty
things that gives you insight
to the part of humanity
that no one bothers to see
Yet once a while
something comes along
that defies the torrent of meaningless banter
and focus on the essense within
things like honour
hope
integrity
these tiny flames that burn within us
forever glowing at the corner of our sights
challenging us to be more than the dark
So say the weaver of life
it shall be as it is meant to be
like the fresh made toast in the morning
we will rise from the fire
and nourish the begining of a new day


I wrote the above from the one image which pushed its way into my mind when I read John's poem [Silver Secretes]
Quote:
...
Painted with gods own hands
Painted, only within
The finest polished glass
If I say you inspire me John... it would be litereal.

Enjoy.

|-Schizotypal
|Echos of a sentient being
|Reverberate down glass halls
|Shattering each reflection
|Of it's creators illusionary image
|Such taunt and drained expression
|The mirrors crystallize into sound
|As infinite destructions
|Of the purest shimmering form
|Transform into nothing more then dust
|Dust upon the broken floors
|As wood flakes and splinters
|To crumble and melt from beneath shaky feet
|Those tacit tones, eerie in their finality
|Destory through perfect silence
|This silence, this silence
|It's the longing dream of a lost shard
|Slashing away the soul of a ruined heart
|Each wound decimating the structure
|Ripping it's foundations from the soft earth
|Pillars crash while stairways rumble
|A masterpeice of balanced design
|Destorying itself through unbenign thought
|For as the sigh upon it's passing
|These glorious ivory towers
|Come tumbling down from the sky

My imagination is my biggest enemy.

|-Temporary Victory
|Just a shimmer upon the eye
|A false sense of anguish inside
|When I stop and realize what it means
|This feeling is taking over it seems
|Less of the life is simply for me
|Devour my sorrow, yet amplify my pain
|Your being becoming some nexus
|A meeting point for what is essentially, me
|I see again such glorious things
|Visions of palaces, majesty, glories, and kings
|A castle built up from the falsified ashes
|Of once beautiful ivory towers
|New pinnacles rise upon the horizon
|Durable, steadfast, safer, strong
|The next brick to lay, will solidify the form
|My dissentful imagination, tamed to the task
|Time to hope these new towers will last

My mind likes to play tricks on me. This is a "continuation" from the last one. I won in this fight, and am certain I'm ready for the next.

If only words were more

There are plenty of things which could express ourselves but more often than not, we commonly dwell in our love and hate relatioinships the most.

Maybe its time I move out of that genre and maybe shift focus on something that is a little different.

what do you guys think?

Write about whatever you want. I personally encourage you to branch out from the love/hate thing. I myself, am still stuck in this stage were most of my inspiration has some conncetion with a love/hate relationship. Now while some are in my own head, and some are other people; it's just what gives me my inspiration right now.

If something else comes to my mind, I'll be sure to share it with you though.

: Simplistic Complex
Quote:
its not just the words
its the eyes too
the way words flow
changes the way the world behaves
its like painting the world
and it starts happening around you
people say we are our own worst judge
I believe its not true
we are our own worst enemy
condemned before the jury adjourns
the facts aren't all there
but we go straight to jail
without passing go
if only life were that simple as monopoly
we would have better goverment bodies
little green houses
little red hotels
a chance to win
and fate to loose
such simple rules
if only it were true


First initial try.

sounds very lame.

|--1 poem by john
I know what I taste
I know what I feel
My entire existance, knows this can't be real
A harmony made from the err of many
Symphony built from the choas so plenty
Oh it knows, it knows, it knows it all

"...Watch what build you fool
Don't you know the fall
It's around, consuming you
Your own creations fall the hardest..."


Taunting with truth of listless end
Taunting with long-gone memories
Banish away this dastardly exhibition
Creation like the softest whisper
Yet still echoing with loudest roar
Oh it won't, it won't have a say

"...Can you really seperate the day from night
Don't you know that I am you
There is no how to escape me
Your shadow never leaves..."


Fight now with whatever we have
Fight now, right now, and it will be better
With wit and whim, life and limb;
Reflection no more as but an image
Seperate, yet not particularly equal
Leave the old behind, as the new flourish

"..."





I have no idea what just happened there. Enjoy for whatever you wish.

A poetry thread! Whoa-- random! Do you like this one?



Just laugh it up
Push it down
So light me up
My world's a cloud

Carpe diem
And sinless night
There is no wrong
When there's no light

I'll mix it up
To break it in
In my profession
Love makes kin

What's yours is mine
And also yours
The lyrics, crystal powder,
Whores

Look at my face
All bones and grin
Let me see yours
I'll kiss your skin

We're looking up
So dress it down
Don't eat, don't sleep
No hurt, just sound

Welcome to our little isle of words and ryhmes BlackHairedBlon.

It sounds like lyrics to a song, do you have melody to go with it? I am sure it would be something of a sensation.

i personally like this part
