Ok... I think I'm going to play with this... Although it has been a while since I wrote anything...


I'm sitting in my bed
all alone
just thinking of you
and what could have been

I don't know what you're doing
I don't know if care anymore
Or did I ever care

Still I hope that
you'd be holding me
telling
it doesn't matter
telling
you missed me too



Ok. It's a bit crappy but I just made it up... and now I started to feel blue...
I want my honey here!

Thanks coop for your ever so insightful thoughts of our daily working life. We are the same kind of animals, no?

as for Murmeli, welcome to our little world of poetry in the forums, your words are simple and tells it story well, so don't knock yourself about it.

Just keep on writing, and you will find your own pattern.

Here is something that I just cooked up too ...

: I Fell
Quote:
Has it been so long
since my last kiss on your lips
my last chance to hold you thight
the last ounce of happiness

Have it been in vain
for me to diddle all my time
in making you my center
revolving around in your universe

There is nothing I want more
than to feel your presence again
kicking my left leg when you sleep
and clutching my arm when you are afraid

I wished I could have done it differently
yet I know that I would not have
because ultimately it all comes down to
your love for me has fade

Good bye my angel
even as you leave me now
deep down inside I know
my love for you had made me fall

Sometimes it is just being me that counts

And yet another depressing poem to post.

: To survive again

Quote:
And yet another day has passed
and I am twice as tired than yesterday
my breathing has come to a slow pace
blood circulation cutted from the brain

The sky has gone into shade
no light emiting from that grey skies
rain drops the size of nuts
drenching my 10 dollar tie

I though kissing the rain will do me good
I hoped that it might wash away my sighs
dreaming that sky water can save me
from me drowning from emotions inside

I wished I could start again
and avoid all those stupid mistakes
that had gotten me here
where life is slowly sucked away from me

How I wish all this will change
so that I can survive
and sail away into the horizon
seeking a new begining
with a differnt morning light
hopefully I will break out from this depression soon.

Sometimes it is just being me that counts

I wrote this on another thread, but thought that it will also be good to let you guys sample it ...

: The confusing factor
Quote:
What is this obession about age
does a old man make a better lover?
or does a young girl a better doll?
Why is it so important to get the number right?
does tha single digit makes me stupid?
and the tripple digit makes you god?

It is all inside
what we are as a person
and what we do as a man
what has anything else to do with it
why even confuse ourselves with the questions

Maybe it is just the old telling the young
that if you grow older your will understand
we confuse ourselves that age makes a man wiser
even though the braincells starts dying by 20

give me one good reason
why I should love a woman 12 years younger
and not one that is 4 years older?
is the age ever a factor in life?
does it make a difference?

Just ask yourself one simple question
do you or do you not love the other
if the answer is positive
then go and live a life
if not go out and find one

The answers are in the things we share
and not the things we say we missed
just tell those that are there
what you feel inside
because you won't know
when the sun sets down
will they be a tommorow to cry for

Go on now and live some
don't ask the all these strange questions
and blunder through these journeys
just tell yourself one thing
it is better to have love and lost
than never to have loved before
so is this the secreat to love? ... to me it is ... what do you think?

Sometimes it is just being me that counts

i was reading the LPSIII thread, and suddenly the fisrt couple lines of this came into my head, and i wrote them down, and the rest just sprang naturally from it... That doesn't happen to me much, so i thought i'd share it with you.

I'm not sure if it has a meaning, because i wasn't searching for one, just writing a thought. If it has a meaning to me, it's burried somewhere in my subconsious. Anyway...

Quote:
PEACE

I write of peace,
but peace finds me not
amid the swirling ever-
changing pool of life.

If only time would
freeze these wrinkles
and lock unmoving
the tumultuous sea.

Then perhaps i could
examine the twists and
turns, and find the truth
laying hidden there untarnished.

But not so is time,
and truths lie there
giving hints of what may
or may not be.

And so I write of peace.
hope you all find something for yourself there.

just dreamy

just a dreamy thought i had one day

title: Pretty

... for my friend Carlo

what a beautiful soul
fluttering from petal to petal
smelling and touching
the gentle breeze against his flight
keeps him afloat and still
hovering and looking ahead

ok, i'll throw another one in i wrote this a while back, but didn't want to flood you all with everyhting i've written.

Quote:
FRIENDS


You hit me, and say you didn't mean it.
Laugh at me, say it's in fun.
Try and be my friend, and take me apart.

I feel each blow, each cut,
no anesthesia for this one,
all the pain's out in the open.
Find all the sinews holding me together,
cut them one by one, trying to find what's wrong,
you say.
Deeper and deeper, finding my bones,
my marrow, wondering if there's a soul
hiding at my core.
I could tell you that you won't find it that way,
but it's not worth it,
you smashed my voice long ago.

Some dark spot, some cancer,
throbbing in my heart;
Black and twisted,
gradually devouring me,
inside out.
Found what you were looking for, huh.
There's your proof, staring,
lauging at you, daring you
to kill, destroy, remove it.

Yet you hope still...
You're not going to find it that way, are you.

Crying, you leave my side,
it's too much to bear, isn't it.
The truth hurts when you look to hard.
Slowly, I heal, hands reach
connect the sepparated parts,
put me back together.
And you come back for another round.

You're not going to find it that way.

You're looking in the wrong spot.

So you cut deeper,
maybe this vein, this organ,
holds my soul.
'Cause you know how to fix souls, don't you.
Tie them back together,
a little glue, a little stiching,
a little kiss.
And you'll have saved me.

But you're not going to find it that way.
You're looking in the wrong spot.

Maybe you don't even know what you're looking for.

I've seen what you're looking for,
Other's have found it before you,
but they looked in me for it.
You'll have to look harder than that,
you're the one who misplaced it.

But you don't even know what you're looking for.

Given up, huh.
tied me back up, stiched me back together.
maybe you think you fixed the problem,
maybe you think you cleaned me up.

You can't see the blood leaking down the table,
you stopped looking for it long ago.
After all, I'm numb, isn't that right.

If it wern't for the hands,
No one could order the pieces of me,
no one could search the four corners
for my heart, my mind, my sorrow.
It's not worth the effort, is it.

So you think you found what you were looking for?
Came back to congratulate me?
congratulate yourself.
what you found will wither soon enough.
After all, you took it from me.

My soul isn't wired to my arteries.
it isn't flowing through my veins.

Want to find my soul?
Want to make it better?
Want to find me?
Want to be my friend?
Well,
Keep lauging,
Keep hitting,
Keep smiling at me, appologizing, not meaning it.

You're not going to find me looking like that.


Look in a mirror sometime...
yah, so i was bitter... and it was about the same person i love now, so... love is a funny thing, eh?

Fog

Fog
thick and irridescent
blurring my vision
as I stumble into my bed
and tangled in clothes and blankets
and tears
I stare vacantly at the plastered ceiling
white and bland
the color of my expression
and the thoughts race through my head
trying to beat each other to my consciousness
attacking my brain
with monotony
of yellow-white thoughts
causing yellow-white expressions
to yellow-white ceilings
and yellow-white smiles
and the ambiguity finally
brings my eyes to droop
and I sleep the restless sleep
of one who is eternally restless.

And welcome XaraJodie ... thanks you for coming on to Winamp Forum and thanks for giving is the honour of your first post.

It is a strong emotional poem <FOG> I am having a hard time comprehending it, but yet it has such a strong feel to it, like a poem struggling to define itself, a sense of lost or misled directions ...

Did I get it wrong? was I even close?

PhotoFx, no issue, your poem is well rather long .. ... but well written. It is a nice way of writing, like talking to oneself, and narrating the whole story for only one audiance.
Plus you have just written a big portion of my teen life in that poem, for I am the one that bled and no one bothered to look anymore. It made me change, and became a different person by the end of the ordeal but I will like to think a change for the better.

And Coop ... well ... another nice line of thougths from your ever insightfull view of life. ... happy to see you posting more these days.

Here is something that you guys can read ...

: Failing heart
Quote:
Ever so slow
I see the chances passing me by
leaving a trail of regrets
and those that cannot be difined

Ever so barren
my thoughts on daily life
the incursions upon my soul
by the sea of sincere lies

Ever so sad
to see the broken man
moving from one pain to another
never breaking that cycle

Ever so far
the place that we all yearn
a sanctuary for the walking dead
to be left to die and be forgotten
This is a poem of a lost of faith, of regrets, of betrayal and of a broken heart caused by a meer sentence of 'I don't think this will work anymore, I am sorry'

Sometimes it is just being me that counts

I finally found an upside for today! My girlfriend broke up with me because her ex came back a few days ago and she hadn't gotten over him. At least I have some new inspiration even if it is depressing.

Oh yeah I thought the people on this thread might be interested in this contest:Lyric Contest

Inspired from the story of Ian again ...
hope you don't mind Ian.

Note: Emily is a girl that I once had a crush on when I was very young.

: Emily

Quote:
There are hidden everywhere
these little insights of life
Sometimes it hurts us most
when we least expect it to be so
So she found her love again
the problem was it wasn't me

I am in pain now
thinking about the things that I never did
never told her that she meant so much to me
but because I was so out of touch
I never saw it coming
and it hit me squarely in the face

I might look like I could stand it
and the pain will eventually go away
yet I still hope that I could tell you
how much more I wish I could be
the man that was beside you
and not the one that will never be notice
I hope you find the one that you should have
and not the one that you never did
for your happiness is all that matters
not these tears on my cheeks
I love you emily
good bye to you from me

well, while not the story of my entire teenagehood (as it's not over yet) it was the story of a couple months of my life. It wasn't fun.

i have a hard time reading the thing sometimes, it's just.... it's just really bitter, and i don't like remembering it.

I like yours by the way , though i'm glad i've never experianced anything like it.

Hey Fx which one did you read?
I wrote like several posts before.

here is today's last post.
Will be missing in action for the next 4 days.
Keep the poems coming in.

: Another view to life
Quote:
It is what you want to see
that makes you what you are
the hurt that hurts so much
comes from you and not from others

The angels try to teach
and you ignore it without hesitation
even when the truth is staring into your eye
nothing ever registers because you choose not to
The words meaning nothing to you
and you kept asking why

When will all this end
where will it all lead to
maybe nowhere
or maybe just too far away to see
I don't know
and I don't have the answers
you will have to bare with it
and go on living

If your life becomes too much pain
You either change and start from the begining
or stay the same and pray for an ending
either way life goes on
and the angels will still sing
listen or not
all yours to decide
at the very end
we are just star dusts
waiting for our chance to do it all again
And maybe do it right this time in
Good night people.

Sometimes it is just being me that counts

About Fog

Fog was written in a time when I was very confused about life in general and just didn't know the first step to take in dealing with it - I felt like my thoughts were racing so fast they were attacking me, and everything was so overwhelming. That's what it was inspired from. It was written in last November, I believe?
Here's another

One More

Hey man,
gimme just a one more drink
said the sorrow filled consumer to his
money-grubbing bartender
and the yellow liquid sloshed out
of the mug as it slid across the
oak bar
tequila bleeding onto the floor, feeding
its own anger
as the man slurps just one
more
one more
one more drop
and turns to the lady next to him
to ask for one more try
just one more try, oh please!
Her cold eyes turn upon him fiercely
her heart having faded from his gaze
but turning away they brim and storm
the saltwater falling away
Broken-hearted she shifts a five
to the lonely blues singer,
Play a good one, will ya? Play one for
the good old days...
and the music flows from her fingers
her mouth
pouring as molasses to the saddened
tired eyes and ears
of all in attendance.
She smiles briefly to each clink in her hat
but silently thinking the good old days
were never good
and tomorrow ain't got no promise neither.
Taking her break to make small chit chat
with the money grubber she is told in her exhaustion
with everything in life
Just one more set, please, oh just ONE more set
to keep these folks alive and buying...
and glaringly heads back, as the bartender slides
into the back room with his needles and dependence
to shoot up
Just one more time, just once more, and then I'll quit
I SWEAR
he mutters to himself
and slips back out to serve the sorrow filled man
at the bar who finished his sorrow filled tequila
Just one more, man, for the road, oh please...
Just one more...

Hmmmm

Hey gang.... Here's one for the road.


************************************
<you make me feel>

I run my hand against linen
smoothing it against skin
I feel in this moment, sensual
my breath draws deep, languid
movement slows, I appreciate
this moment, I feel sensual

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

as u can see i'm in one of them moods again. :P

wow, i like all three on this page.

xara, you really do strike deep. And i remember that one .

And here's another of mine, it's one that i wrote to ask a girl both out and to prom, and it worked (not like there was much doubt (i don't play bad chances)), and i saw her again tonight, and didn't want to leave, so this is for me to remebmer her.

Sonnet, iambic pentamter, abab,cdcd,efe,geg.

Quote:
When sleepy gray meets newly opened eyes
And veils tear and fall from untamed thought,
Then noble hearts are shown and stripped from lies
And bridges strong from bridges weak are bought.
How claustrophobic skies I beckon 'round
To give myself a space in which to breathe
Catch such unlucky fowl within the sound
That echoes round my cautious failing creed
I do not know, but move with them in mind,
For often times they reach behind a phrase
To tie and mend and brittle strands unwind.
Her heart is kind, but what she finds in me
I do not know. I only see in her the mind,
The kindness, love and strength I want to be.
ah how i love the girl

Heart Break

Love is what I was in
I longed for so much more
Will I ever see her again
Now that she's shut the door

You said that we should be friends
but that was total bull
I've been played yet again
like some sort of fool

I can face the day no longer
No reason left to live
My heart had fallen for her
Now I've no compassion left to give

Now that it's over I realize
That it was just a waste
Burning tears from my eyes
have left a bitter taste



This is the saddest poem I have written, but poetry is a good, healthy way to let out your emotions.

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

Expanses

This is one I wrote probably close to 6 years ago! It never had a title then, and I wouldn't know what to name it now.


I stare across the
cold expanses of my dreams
to you
this candle seems like phony ambiance
the flame flickers under hot breath
only anxious nervousness
no passion lingers here
'cept maybe for me
inside yearning for a hand to hold
wanting to candles red glow to turn real
to fill this sore hole inside with laughter
the tablecloth rubs my legs as i glance at you
but you're not even really there in sense
i feel you there
feel truth
long to reach out and hold your hand
for you to guide my pained heart
for my face to remember
how to smile

it's a good thing, huh i'm sure i would have gone insane by now if i wasn't able to rant in words. Though sometimes i'm not sure if it actually makes me feel better, but it does at least probably get out the tension.

[edit] just saw the new one man, if i'd been able to write like that then... what i could do now... [/edit]

Snow

snow lightly drifts in from afar
whispering to the evergreens
their white parka is coming.
swirling quietly in the hovering clouds
tied in the tension in the air
then, gradually, alleviating such stress
from the sky
to the ground
crying white tears
cheering white cheers
with white words gently drifting their
silent exclamations
to the heaving ground.
It sighs with relief at the first flake's landing
feeling the moisture seek throgh
singing it a lullabye
as the forest sinks into hibernation
a mere week before the onset of spring.
Fall, ice princesses,
in your silent reverie
send us to our peaceful wonderland
in pure beauty
one more time.

Here's another one of mine...


I’m not willing to believe

Stars above our head
Tell the story
That I’m not willing to believe

The dark night whispers in my ear
Tells the story
That I’m not willing to believe

Your eyes look into my soul
Telling the story
That I’m not willing to believe

The world keeps moving on
Telling that life goes on
But I’m not willing to believe

My "bitterest" poem. It's old and a little raw, but the girl hurt me badly:

A Cold Farewell

Underline me with your feelings of hope lost and desire harnessed
Highlight the fears that make you beg for control and die of envy
Crossing the street, cheap perfume and ashes in your wake
You take the time to look both ways as you're hammered from above

And on your knees, you look to him to bring sense into your life
But he only drains all courage from your soul
Spits as you swallow, looks down at you and gently sneers

Lost, you find me wasting away and ask for my shoulder, my ear
Anything to share in the shame festering inside of you

But darling, don't you know that demons cannot be pawned off to the lowest bidder?
They are yours to keep, to cherish, and as you reach out, drowning,
I calmly smile and walk away...

Under the Rug

Do you remember like I do?
Sitting in that chair
Together
We were together
Breathing in unison
Our minds: one likeness
Contented hearts -
But only mine; not yours
I saw it, clear as ever
That day
Your heavy luggage left scratches on the floor
They're still there
An obscure reminder under the patterned rug
The covering hides the scars
But they do not disappear

Do you remember?
Because I do.

Neargh.

Here's one that came to me right before I fell asleep last night.

Moving On

My pain is causing my anger to rise
Like the tumultous waves of the sea.
On the cold floor my heart is where my heart lies,
Because of the things youve done to me.

My grief and sadness are all that have been left by you.
Youve taken all of my gladness and joy.
Your felling towards me seemed genuine and true,
But you used me and threw me away like a broken toy.

Why do you do these things that cause such agony.
Youve hurt everyone that you have been near.
I cant understand why this makes you happy,
You are the only one that I had held dear.

I hope you will find someone that can meet your goal.
Now I must move on to someone who can forgive,
One that can complete me in body and soul.
I must go forward and continue the life I will live.

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

I have a problem,
And it tears gently at my being.
It seems comforting and safe.
It makes me want it to stay.

I have a disease,
And it is the kind that makes one heart-sick.
It is a desire and a need.
It makes me long for what I can not have.

I have an addiction,
And he has a name.
He is my best friend and my challenger.
He makes me strive for a better life.

I have a problem,
And he tears gently at my being.
He seems comforting and safe.
He makes me want him to stay.

wow, i was really really impressed wiht your old one facility. That'll take a couple more reads to comprehend fully, but it still hit the first time through.

And, another contribution:

Quote:
INCOMPLETE

Every love I've found has
found me incomplete.

And every love has left
it's own wound in my
slowly fading heart.

So I will build a wall
so strong and so high
that not the most resolute of
loves can find it's way to me.

History shall be the gatekeeper,
and Trust shall be the escort,
so that those journeying
will have safe passage,
and a roof over their heads
at the end of the road.

And those unwelcome shall
find the passage barred,
and the road broken.

And none shall struggle to
find and mend the incomplete.
after a breakup. I figured it wouldn't happen, but it's how i felt. And, it didn't, fortunately. I just kidna like the image though.

I am a spead reader and it took me awhile to read all those poems. I am very pleased there are so many talented people on this board. Here is a poem I have read, I cannot remember the author:

There the eye goes not,
Speach goes not, nor the mind.
We know not, we understand not
How one would teech it.

When I read this poem, it opened so many thought patterns and I instantly had it memorized. I hope it will shed some light into your brains as well.

I wrote this one a couple of days ago - very recently.

Your Eyes

The world melts
and dissolves around me
with the penetrating
soul contorting
gaze
of your deep
dark and intense brown eyes,
almost black with intensity.

How they shake my soul
my heart
and how my knees grow weak
and my mind grows fearful
in this one moment
this one eternity
as we gaze
unblinking
into our souls.

Thank you Xarajodie, Alan (aka PhotoFx), Coop, Ian, Murmeli, Facticity, sscw46 and trista for keeping the thread so interesting during my leave of absence.

Your poems are incredible, and Xara your poems are ever so interesting to read, though LONG, but interesting.

I will like to welcome Blaugh for his classical interpretation of the roses and violets. And thanks for MrMagic with his contribution of 'mind'

Xara for your unnamed poem maybe you can use this title
<Reaching for a candle's light>, the poem is beutifully written and I felt the pain deep inside. Thank you.

Facticity <a cold farewell> is one of the most bitter poem I have read. The realism in those words stings the very core of any broken hearted. Well done.

And trista's <I have a problem>, what more can I say, she has a touched a true poet. Good work.

sscw46, my favourite panda, <under the rug>, could not have said it any better about the pain and scar of relationships. In which I have my own rug that covers my old scars of war.

For Ian, I sincerely hope that <Moving On> did you some good, just pick up the pieces friend, and keep on going.

Alan's <Incomplete> is insightful and true. But there is no need to dwell in it my friend, no one is perfect and all of us have an incompleteness in us, that is why we fall in love, so that we can BE COMPLETE. No?

Lastly, Murmeli's poem <I'm not willing to believe> struck a cord in me so strong that I will like to express my feelings of it in my contribution for today. Well written my friend.

This is todays first contribution ...

: a memory, an end
Quote:
Have you ever loved a memory
one that you know is but a dream
which is now so far away
it seems like eternity

Have you ever wished it was different
that one time you hear me say 'I love you'
without you ever feeling lost and run away?

I have had you in my heart for ages
and for ages it has ache
Yet now I must accept the simple truth
it has to end
this dream of you
for it is nothing more than
castles in the air
Your love, to me will not come true
I hope you enjoy it.

Sometimes it is just being me that counts

Good to see your back, izchan.

Heres anotherone of mine, just made it today:

Unanswered

I toss and turn in my sleep,
into my dreams the darkness creeps.
It eats at my soul, relentlessly devouring,
I just continue to hide, scared and cowering.
The cold and the fear are all I can feel,
I am lost in this world where nothing is real.
This evil is powerful, it is overtaking me,
No matter where I run, it won't let me be.
All hope of escape has now been forever lost
I will flee from it always, but at what cost?
I dread each waking moment that I exist
If I were to die would I even be missed?
Answers to these questions, I will never know,
Because six feet above me a cold wind now blows.


Izchan, thank you very much for the kind words.

ok ok, glad no one got mad about my roses and violets joke...now here's a couple serious poems i've had stored on my hdd for a while:

<life>

life comes to us in stages...
but while one of us is down, another is up...

remember that...
when you're heart is broken over a lost love, or
you are sad over the loss of a loved one

someone else...
is finding love for the first time, or
is finding joy in the birth of a new child

remember when you're up, that someone is down
remember how it felt, and how it would have felt
to have someone help you up again...

*1999



this is a sappy love poem i wrote about an ex-girlfriend in college:

as tears roll in darkness
life lays, dusty, on the shelf
beside useless books, paper

depression and poor grades were the least
she saved me from myself
pity, all that remains is but a vapor

*1997


last but my favorite...

<scorn>

when lights go off in here
the sun comes up out there

and unto earth the dawn is reborn
like breathing souls coming to and fro
the lifeless cry of death and scorn
follows after like the faithful

*2000

thanks everyone for you inspirational poems...i haven't written in a couple years, but i think i may just pick up a berol black beauty and take it up again...

nicely written blaugh. No worries about the poems. as I said in my ealier postings, there is no such thing as bad boems, only misunderstood words.

<Scorn> is the best of the lot, definately.

It is good to hear that you will be participating in our little journey of the poets. Will await for more of your works.

Again welcome to Another Artistic Thread - Poems

Here is somethingelse to read ... enjoy.

: The old ways
Quote:
There will always be times of turbulance
times when we question to the core of our life
seeking answers for unknown questions
and meanings which don't exist
in which the world keeps twirling by

Sometimes when we are sad and confused
the very thing that we take for granted
are the one thing that will save us
from the grieve and the pain from inside

Sometimes it is the old things that makes us safe
able to find all the right answers in places
Where we know that roses are red
and violets are always blue

Sometimes it is just being me that counts

Izchan, thanks for the kind words. And these poems may seem long, but my personal favorite work is a poem that's extremely long. So worry not, I will not post it here. Too long. Also . . . "a memory" was beautiful . . . gorgeous, and something I can personally relate to.

Blaugh - the poem you wrote about your ex-girlfriend in college was very poignant. It really really stood out to me, and grabbed at me. I really liked it. So short, so concise, so intelligent.

So, I've been a writer for as long as I can remember - poems, short stories, you name it. As some points in my life I can just write about anything. In fact, I can write about anything, butit doesn't mean anything to me anymore. Recently - the past year or so - I've been inspired, and written something down, looked at it and hated it. I don't know how to get my true inspiration back, and to say what I really want to say anymore. It used to be so effortless, and it's not anymore . . . does anyone have any advice? Of all the things I do, writing is probably the dearest to me, and is something I will always always do, so I'd like to be able to express myself in poetry, again. I feel like everything I write now is just unsatisfactory and doesn't convey the ideas that I want. Thoughts?
