After a week on the highlands ...
this is what came out.

: A reason to be
Quote:
Never asked another
to give you what you dont have
for in asking you allow others
to control your own wealth

Ask first what
then ask why
next ask when
last ask how

The only reason for any actions
is that we wish it to be
not what another thinks as reality
for we are only we



Enjoy.

Morning people.

Was reading about some articles about religion. Wrote this down after I finised the firt paragraph.


ry Spell
Quote:
When I look into myself
I see only a dried up well
nothing left to give
only emptiness echoes among these walls

Yet somehow when you come along
you always seem to see something more
the way you touched my soul like no other
like an angel you smiled upon my life
and suddenly it seems brigther

For you I try again
lifting up my last ounce of strength
giving my best to this world
so that it might changed for the better
all of this because of you
believing in a lost cause
having faith in me
because of you I believe
Strange way of saying things ... but somehow it seemed appropriate.

hope you guys liked it.

This is something I wrote after some indepth biblical study on the lifes of prophets ...

: So much for today ...
Quote:
Sometimes I wonder why I even bother
to do the things I do everyday
waking up every morning
and try to walk away from bed

Prepare for my morning meetings
just to look at my boss's face
finding every ounce of strength
and control my boredom within

then afternoon comes around
and lunch with my predictable friends
talking about girls and politics
that is what life is to them

Evening catches up silently
and I tuck my last report away
filing up all those red tapes
so that tommorow I can start again

In the middle of the night
I wake up sweating to my bones
nightmares upon nightmares
I dreamt my life was doomed

Thus I sat down and contemplate
writting down my lives work
just to come up with a blank
my life has come up to nothing
what a sad way for it to end

So I made my mind and said it loud
I will change my way
no more mindless exercise
my life will mean something today
until the end of time I will strive
make my life worthwhile
for today is so much more
much more than today

Sometimes it is just being me that counts

Untitled, for the Moment

Your day begins and ends on the street (whoaaa!)
Life hurts and so do your feet (whoaaa!)
Boy it’s time for you to fly
Pack your bags and say your final goodbye

Glory days are memories of the past
Images in your mind are flown at half-mast
Only just one, single man
In your room listening to you 7” Duran-Duran

What has become of your home? (whoaaa!)
Too much boozing led to an empty dome (whoaaa!)
Never realized why you were here
So I’ll start a letter, Dear

You: What have you been up to?
Done anything at all? Anything new?
You know how hard it can be
I’ll never find the difference between you and me

When will you be coming back?
For your life, your friends, or just a snack
Believe me I want to see you some time
Trust me, it would be so sublime

I’ve been wasting time on my own
And you’ve been running in a cyclone
Well, I guess I’ll see you on the other side
When this war is over and we all died

qHobbes,

You are the philosopher that is as grand as it comes.

Thanks for your new contribution.

: Why the pain
Quote:
Many things have happend
Some are real
Some are pictures in our mind
and some just intentions unsaid
but most of all are dreams unrealized

It is like a knife trough my heart
when I see people skipping trought life
not knowing any better
just sleeping untill they die

And if I wake them
I am blamed for their demise
I become the cause for their sorry lives
why did I take them from their lie
where life has no real pain
and takes no real meaning

Do they love the pain inside
the emptiness in their soul
eating slowly that essense
killing softly without a cry

What I only know is
that I must try
for I cannot bare to see it happend
beauty tarnish by lies
even if it takes my entire life
if taking the burden give me pain
I will wake them up
so they might see there is another way
they will know what it means to be alive

Sometimes it is just being me that counts

SPACE

i saw you today...
a million miles away.
you looked but did you see?
your gaze pierced through me.
where on earth have you gone?
we haven’t been together in so long.
you say we need some space
but i want to see your face.
i’m no longer in your head; .
it’s like to you i’m dead
and now i’m feeling daunted
‘cause i know this is what you wanted
but i still want to be near you.
so what do you think i should do?

Sorry if I havent been around Winamp...been too busy with school..but here's my contribution...

Hell by Lee
June 11 2002

I hate my job, but I have to work,
To suffer the wrath of my boss, he's a jerk,
My body is tired and I get no pay,
Sounds like a sweatshop on a hot summer day,
Others around me are dropping like flies,
And the boss says we'll get paid, he lies;
There are no breaks and we only get what we earned,
Usually water, gruel, and toast that has been burned,
It's depressing here, I want to go home; only time can tell,
But what is home? When you're living in Hell.

the little things are most worthwhile
a loving word,
a look,
a smile
though sometimes they seem quit small
these little things mean most of all.
to thankyou for the little things,
that you so often do
and to tell you that it is so wonderfull,
to have your love and you!

"Well, got to love you and leave you, need to go get into the shower and rub my hard naked body all over with soapy bubbles, I'll be back later to carry on playing....

It'll take you some time to get over the image of me naked in the shower......mind you don't masturbate to hard thinking about it...."

Pixie ... Welcomed.

A nice refreshing outlook to the world, compared to my more depresive works these days.

: Reasons to be happy
Quote:
Now I once heard that
being happy is simple
just think of warm thoughts
like blue ribbons on presents
or Febuary breezes in spring

Yet most of all
I remember mothers hugs
and her sincere smile
the soft touch of love

Then I see a reason
a path for real
somewhere I will be again
the true self in me


There is nothing like a happy thought in life ...

enjoy

Ah lee, good question and thanks for the complement. Means a lot.

How much time do I think about my poems? Not long, because usually, when I write, I already know what I want to tell. It somehow flows from inside of me, as I type the words out on the screen, or when I pen it on paper.

The words itself forms when I put one letter at a time. It is almost like someone else is writing and I am the pen in which he/she uses.

Like now I write this

: Why do I do it?
Quote:
Even as the second passes by
I doubt my answer will ever come
the real reason for my demise
being lonely and dumb

Sometimes you think you are better
but most of the time you are not
the only good thing that comes our way
are usually the things that we want not

So what do we do when these things happend
do we cry because of the unspoken threat
Reality of being left alone in the dark
or the truth that will shatter glass

Finally we look deeply into the sea
this sea of lives
this sea of confusion
this sea of change
for if will you take your time
and ultimately feel it
You will suddenly understand one simple truth
that the sea is in you
that the sea IS you
Where you can then trully decide
What you are going to do about it


Typed it and finished it in 15 minutes. But the reality is that I have been thinking about the same things since morning. Which was around 5 hours ago. If I were to write it again in another hour or so, the whold poem would probably be different. But isn't that how life is? Different every second all the way?

Hope you guys enjoy this.

Welcome DJ ...
Are you a frequent visitor to this thread? If you are ... thank you.

Yes I know the thread is long .. .. if you read it from the first page up ... it is will seriously test your patients. But the truth is .. ... you will also find a certain pattern within each poem and each reply ... hopefully it paints a picture of growth and change.

Do you have any works to share with us?
If so ... do you think you can post it, so that we will have one more mate in this journey of poets.

Again thank you for you participation.

izchan — That Haiku was meant playfully, not in a bad way ... just making sure you didn't take it the wrong way

I don't have any already written, but I'm working on one ... sometimes the writer's block kicks in .

DJ ... ... no worries ... ... it was not taken wrongly .. ... Just wanted to make sure that you do not get frustrated over the 14 pages of Poems ...

QHobbes ... ... your point is totally true ... as I said before, whenever I write, it is most of the time not me rather seems like someone else writing trough me.

Anyway ... it is always good to see people participating in this thread. It gives it life in which it can endure.

Just another guy:

Quote:
Crushed in her hands like bad fruit
My heart feels today
I didn't want it that way
Trying to make a move
Hoping she'll approve
But I'm just another guy

I ask her the question one night while we are alone
"Later I'll give you my answer
Right now I'm going to my Father's"
She'll never say no or yes
Not now or in the future I guess
'Cause I'm just another guy

Telling her what I'll do for her only puts her off
I'll give you anything, girl
If you'll only be with me, Gurl
I'll do anything, that's true
I'd even die for you
But I'm just another guy

Once again my heart is broken and crushed
There was another guy
Cruising in her life
She didn't even tell me about Mark
She just left me in the dark
'Cause I'm just another guy
It's not very good ... I don't even know why I'm posting it up here .

Oh well — I tried.

DJ ... that is one very direct way of expressing yourself ... ... I like it. Keep the posting coming. I believe most will agree with me when I say, it is a good piece of work.

AS for HAPPY_IN_HELL ... ... creative is the only word I can use. GREAT WORK!!!!

today ... I am in a dryish spell ... so no work to post.

or maybe a short one ...

: A short one
Quote:
I always tend to get the short end
of almost any deal I do
whether it is for personal
or for the company

My girfriend never go pass Five feet One
and their tempers never below par
Everything I tend to do
will always give me a scar

My work place is usually shitty
we share the same PC
but the worst part of the thing is
we all get the same pay

Always the short one in my endaevour
short of chance
short of time
short of everything
but most of all short on faith
and short of confidence
short of lifes meaning
the short one in everything

I think we can all relate to that one, izchan .

Thank's for the complement .

The Programming Master
Quote:
I wanted to learn how to program
But didn't know how
So I got a copy of Visual Basic
And I'm the master now

Put in a Public Sub
Or Private Sub mode
It doesn't matter what it is
Just as long as it is called Load

Add a nifty MsgBox
It pops up a little window
This box can have a title, body and icon too
Just as long as you have already done Show

We need to assign
To a clever little string
The words for the message
The one MsgBox will bring

Ache plus Eey plus an El El Oh
Doubleyou Oh, Are El Dee
These few letters spell
Something great to me

HELLO WORLD, the awesome phrase
That shows I can program now
I am now the best in the world
Do you want me to show you how?

But a pro never forgets
To put an Unload Me
The pro who's doing the programming
The pro, like ME!!!
A fun little poem about a naieve first time programmer. Even better if you know Visual Basic .

DJ ... ... nice work. As a developer myself, that poem was down right funny ... ... yeah ... i use VB as one of my tools.

Will post something later I think ... my mind is now very much tied up with something else. See if I can get out of it later today.

As for the others, thanks for visiting. And thank you more for contributing.

enjoy.

The Ballad of Frank O. Davis

The world just let you in
You're only 3 and you commit sin
But your mom told you
You have to live cause life goes on

Today preschool starts
Go in to find out you got no smarts
So your teacher tells you
You have to live cause life goes on

Get a D in English class
And break your dads favorite wine glass
He just scolds at you
You have to live cause life goes on

Went out for the football team
Never new a coach could be so mean
Hollers at the top of his lunges
You have to live cause life goes on

Ask out the girl of your dreams
She says no and just screams
Think to yourself
You have to live cause life goes on

Your best friend drove off the other day
But all they say is that he's okay
His last words to you were
You have to live cause life goes on

Wake up on the wrong side of the floor
Your wife turns out to be a real boar
Sign the divorce papers and tell her
You have to live cause life goes on

Cremated and stuck in a vase
Kids argue over money in the biggest case
Your dying words were
I lived and life went on

Lyle, that is one of the best poem I have ever read for a long .. long time ... It is comforting and saddening at the same time ... in which I can only say this ... masterpiece work ... superb.

You are one special poet, talented and remarkably focus and clearheaded.

I thank you for showing me such work of art.

Masterful.

Todays contribution

: Faith
Quote:
In silence I pray
so that I can see again
the wonders that is displayed
to those that believe

In awe I bow down
letting the sea wash over me
refreshed and freed
from the grit of the living

In remembrance I understand
meanings are but words
for calmness shows the path
to serenity and loves domain


Hope you enjoy this

hello- it's been a long time since I've been here! Well, here's one I just wrote. I don't know what I think of it yet- it feels a little raw.

some lovely daydream
inhabits this pretty mind

look at yourself, my dear
change that troubled mind

live inside of your dreams
nothing special here

he won't help you find
the answer to this fear

I'm running from life
I'm running for love

unfortunate for me,
the two cannot be

one without the other
they rely on each other

some wicked day life
inhabits these pretty hands

change yourself, my dear
maybe then you'll understand

live the truth of your life
that's all we have left here

after that he'll understand
the truth behind your tears

I'm loving for life
I'm living for love

and love cannot be
alone within me

one with the other
they exist for each other

Hello wise, nice to see you around. hope to see you more.

Here is something for you guys.

: Factor in these
Quote:
Many factors come into play
the smile for instance is a way
you push your lips up semi circularly
and flash a tinsy bit of teeth
thus portraying sincerity
for others to consume

Or you can choose another method
where flowers might be better
red roses for love
white roses for truth
and some pink ones for tender hearts
so that your lover will know
that you care and wants a truce

Yet none more efficient than true words
and communicate your heart in verse
of morning suns and jams and bread
of blue ribbons tied to the candle stead
of tender kisses before leaving
so that you will know
that loving you has made me whole

Hi Guys ...

Here is something that I just wrote.

: It could have been worst
Quote:
Even when everything seems to go wrong
Even if the world seems to stand still
Things could still have been worst
we would have never met
and we would be lonely forever
like a puzzle missing the final piece
life just expired without a date
Yes, it could have been worst
it could have been a world witout you


sentimental ... and something that would most likely make me cry softly if I were alone at night.

Enjoy.

Spiked Club by Lee
July 3 2002

Cold dark windy nights, as I walk upon
These streets of death towards land's doom,
Sickly smells from the sewer choking my lungs,
And the blood trickles down the whitewall
Forming puddles of black.

Keeping pace of my steps as I walk toward doom,
Watchful eyes prey on my soul driven body,
Wanting to eat the living flesh from my bones,
But I stay away from the Prime Evils,
Carrying with me a spiked club.

I near the end of the cobbled blood soaken street,
Leaning over the edge lies a fiery chasm,
Lost souls scream in agony as the flames lick their virgin body,
I need to do my job and restore peace to this city,
Leaping across with my spiked club.

I see before me the evils that laid waste to this land,
Circling above me like vultures that await the prey,
I slice and dice my way to them and hack off their heads,
Leaving a bloody mess of limbs and parts,
As I shine before thee, with my spiked club.

Lee, That made me think of the quake game I had few days back. Limbs of fallen comrades upon the floor, and me blood soaked in my shirt. Holding to my plasma rifle, waiting for my next target. Only to hear the soft chimes of grenades falling upon my feet, before my avatar perish in the firely inferno.

Anyway ... here is my two cents today ...



: The right way
Quote:
Though I love my woman deeply
there is something that I don't understand
why does a woman does things
without following a proper flow

Can't we just take things slowly
one step at a time
Maybe first the gentle kisses
then only later the room and night?

It is not that I don't enjoy it
nor is it not good
but sex is only a part
of the list of things to do

First a slow walk at the riverside
and dinner at castle white
we will share a night under the moon
where then I will tell how much I love you
with gentle massages upon your body
I see happiness in your eyes
I will give you everything
just to see you smile
for as night passes and dawn comes
only then can I say to you
I loved you the right way


call me romantic, or call me a fool, but that is how I rather things are between me and you know who ...

enjoy.

Sometimes it is just being me that counts

My Three Favorite Poems: Steal This Poem, The Poet Cookbook, and The Poet Manifesto

Wouldn’t it be great if life were free?
Kind of like when you were two or three
But no, life is real
So if you desire, you must steal

Surviving on zero cash
Milking “hot” wood for all its ash
It’s about sleeping in other people’s cars
And getting “house” drinks at all the bars

What can I do with bleach and soap?
Nothing, tell you read this book, you dope
I wanna throw a monkey wrench in The Machine!
Use the book wrongly and you’ll have no spleen

Take ½ a cup rebel and 1 teaspoon of being insane
Throw in a splash of the 70’s for some real pain
Let’s try to deface The Man
Plus it’s good reading for The Can

Gimme gimme the color red
We’re all equal, might as well be dead
Solute everything Soviet and be a drone
With blond hair and blue eyes, you should be a clone

I want my yellow sickle and hammer
About the first women dictator, damn her!
Do as Mr. Marx said to
And with red stars you will make do

Lyle, that poem is incredible.
When GOD made you, HE must haved paid a little more attention than when he did me ... ... Incredible.

Here is todays work

: And when He was done
Quote:
When GOD made the world
HE must have been in a hurry
because he forgot to put in the important things
things like understanding the meaning of life

When GOD made me
HE must have been busy
because HE forgot to put in the essential things
things that will help me know what it means

Not unlike the dog in the manger
I am trapped inside this husk call life
unable to comprehand the simplest facts
can't tell whats wrong from right

Should it been different
and GOD paid a little more attention
then HE would have notice my missing parts
batteries and assembly not included
thats the problem with user friendly equipments
a total mystery to the world its being used

It is a theory that when GOD made me
he was having his eyes somewhere else
for there are defectiveness in me
I question everything that is real
and ignore everything else
Saying things that no one wants to hear
talking to the wind just to catch a feel
surely I am not a whole full being
missing something within
insanity looming in my reach

When GOD made me
It must have been a busy day
for I am but one of the many creation
nothing important enought for HIS attention
my life is but a speck is the grand scheme of things
irrelevent to the furthest extreme
just another dust in the wind


Strange poem, based on just one sentence, guess which one ...

Enjoy

The words that has been in my head for the pass 1 week. Everytime I go to sleep, I hear this song in my head, where the lyrics go like this ....

: The long night
Quote:
It was a moonless night
where even stars went and hide
no clouds to show me dreams
without indications of where to go

The silent sighs inside of me
telling tales of constant misery
trusting no one, not even myself
I sink deeper into the quicksand

Suffocating from too much inquiry
lost in the mist of delusions
praying for a solemn hand
to guide me out of the night

It is the long night
the time in which souls are lost and found
just so that it might be forgotten again
as the cycels of time pass us by
so do our lives dims and dies


Sad as it might seem, it is quite releasing for my spirit ones the words come out of my heart ...

Enjoy.

Wow..that was really good....words cannot describe the feeling in this poem...
________________
The Day Before by Lee
May 6 2002

I was trying to think of what to say,
But I never got to do it until today,
I never wanted you to go that night,
But you headed toward that white light.

The smile on your face the day before;
Lifted my emotions, that I wanted more;
Now I'm sitting here with my face in my hands;
Hoping you have fun on God's lands.

Everything is so blurry;
So all night we sit here and weep;
Keeping an all night vigil, no sleep;
As we stand near the memorial of Sandy.
_________________________________

This poem I wrote a while back...sort of sad...

This one isnt mine but one of my favorites by Richard Brautigan
the poem is called All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace

I like to think (and
the sooner the better!)
of a cybernetic meadow
where mammals and computers
live together in mutually
programming harmony
like pure water
touching clear sky.

I like to think
(right now, please!)
of a cybernetic forest
filled with pines and electronics
where deer stroll peacefully
past computers
as if they were flowers
with spinning blossoms

I like to think
(it has to be!)
of a cybernetic ecology
where we are free of our labors
and joined back to nature,
returned to our mammal
brothers and sisters,
and all watched over
by machines of loving grace

Head slammer, Welcome to our little group of poem lovers.
A new voice is always welcomed in our mist.
The poem that you posted is very nice, as a computer person myself, I can feel the kindship in which it is protraying.

Lee, wow, that poem reminds me of the time my mom left me. It is always sad to see the love ones leave our side, but rather than thinking of them gone, I would rather see it as them preparing a place for me in the future when I meet them again.

I will post something later today, now I have some screens for me to finish. dateline is near ...

talk to you guys later.

Falling Back to Me by Lee
July 9 2002

YOu're falling back to me,
As far as I can see,
Somewhere out there,
For me to reach a hand and care.

I know you're out there,
Somewhere where I can see,
Defying physics and gravity,
I love you so much, to care.

Underneath the stars,
Watching you fall from afar,
I'm going to save your life,
And we're both gonna be alive.

You're falling back to me,
Somewhere out there,
As far as I can see,
For me to reach a hand and care.

Here is something after church ...

: Leading the heart
Quote:
When everything goes wrong
we fall from grace
all alone in pain
nver understanding why it happends

Most people think that GOD
has given up hope on them
but the truth is different
for he is now even more aware

In every pain there is always a lesson
In every smile there is always tears
nothing ever happends
withou reason following its tail

What we do is just to listen
and hear what it really says
for in silence you will hear
the grand orchestra play
where reasons flow from inside our soul
enlighting our path to our goal

Sometimes it is just being me that counts

Blind by Lee

Leave me alone in my dark cell,
You have left my life in shambles,
Now I live under torment and Hell,
How could I be so blind?

I trusted you, or so I thought,
I loved you, maybe not
Is this the lover I find?
How could I be so blind?

I'm not afraid of fading,
As now I'm dying,
I cannot see with these eyes,
Why am I so blind?

It has been a while since I last posted. Been going through some rough times in my life.

Yet all in all, it went well in the end.

: Clarity
Quote:
It is I that is me
and you that is yours
there is nothing left that is unsure

I live in my world
and you live in yours
neither relevent to our daily chores

Yet I can't deny
that you existence causes
some minor pain inside my heart

So I have come to terms
and have seen the truth
that my life is mine
and yours is yours

For you are just a part of the living
and that living is but a picture in my mind
when the time comes for revelations
I will wipe it clean
for that is the universe
that is my reality
Enjoy.

Sometimes it is just being me that counts
