WHEN are we going to be together
WILL we be in Love forever
I will love you always, these words are true
SLEEP is sweet when I dream of you
WITH this poem I have 1 thing in mind
You just have to read the 1st word of each line!

Haha, I love that poem. Ok, not really o.O

I REMEMBER YOU

I remember you
as the flaming landscape in Van Gogh's eye
before his mind took a ticket to nowhere

I remember you
as the raging skyline in Sierra Maestra
where outnumbered 200 to 1 Che won

I remember you
as a suitcase full of memories & hurts
that i left behind & suddenly stepped off

I remember you
as the long road to the factory every morning
& an empty room I returned to at night every night

I remember you
when the summer fell out of the sky & scalded us
burnt sienna was the colour of our lust

I remember you
as the long fevered road to nowhere
before being lost became the vogue

I remember you
when your twilight scarf was caught in a speeding wheel
& your snapdragon neck snapped like a twig

I remember you
as the flowers stopped changing colours at dusk
& the third magi forgot to bring his myrrh

I remember you
when Vleasquez's nude suddenly turned around
& asked Sai Baba to stop being lewd

I remember you
as the great dictor who shaved his moustache off
& the moustache grew its own dictator again

I remember you
when Ravishankar forgot the darbari kannada
& started playing the simple blues

I remember you
When the july rain suddenly came back in february
& the seasons were caught unawares

I remember you
when you unbuttoned a row of eucalyptus
& a rush of glow worms breathed in your eyes

I remember you
when my car crashed into a hurricane of swallows
& the last swallow remembered your name

I remember you
sailing from Cadiz to Gibraltar with Lorca
on a shipwreck of rains

I remember you
when you stroked the midnight in my hair
till daybreak came

I remember you
when nothing but darkness exists
& the darkness is in your eyes

I remember you
when the station is empty & no one remains
except the old man in the skies

THEY CARRIED YOUR FRAIL DEAD BODY IN THE RAIN
They carried your frail dead body in the rain and when they reached the crematorium spring returned

Countless names were scrawled on the walls and there comrade anonymous they found your name in red

In the black light of the mirrors i traced a broken sea where memories of a lost war sailed

And in my arms you were nobody and yet you burned like a nacreous monk in the streets of Saigon you burned in the improvised bunkers in the foxholes near the border in the drop of the sun in the night's uterus

And in the black light of the mirrors I traced a broken sea where memories of a lost war sailed

And the word that was freedom the word broke down and wept in the eyes of the sun

A Poem For He

This Is My Poem,
My Poem For You.
I'll List Many Things
That You Never Knew.
I'll Tell You I Loved You,
I'll Tell You I'm Yours.
I'll Be With You Forever,
Even At Heaven's Doors.
I Want You To Know
That I'll Always Be True.
My World Is But Nothing
When I'm Without You.
I Cry When You're Gone,
I'm Weak When You're Away.
I Don't Want You To Go,
So Please Baby, Just Stay.
You Left Me Alone,
You Left Me To Die.
I'm Eternally Sad Now,
As I Eternally Cry.
But You're Gone Now,
And You're Not To Blame.
It Was My Own Damn Fault,
Had I No Shame?
I Let Go Of Your Love,
I Was A Fool.
I Had No Idea
I Was More Than A Tool.
You Truly Did Love Me,
And I Had Never Known.
But Once You Had Left Me
Is When Your True Love Had Shown.
Now I'm Alone,
In A World Without You.
As I Stare Up Above,
My Sky Is Not Blue.
All I See Is Your Face,
As I Cry Myself To Sleep.
I Can No Longer Smile,
I Can Only Weep.
But I Cannot Give Up,
I Cannot Give In.
Even Though My Leaving You
Was A Dreadful Sin.
I'll Make It Up...I Promise You.
Then I Can Let
Myself Go Of This Pain,
And Be Up Above
Where The Clouds Make The Rain.
But I'll Be There With You,
Above In The Sky.
But The Only Way It Could Be...
Is If I Were To Die.
I...Love......You.........

----Release--------

Do you feel my desire?
Do you know that which I need?
That want that will not ever sleep,
As long as I can bleed.

I cannot muddle through alone
though sometimes it seems I am
Those times when all my friends are gone
see the bursting of my mind's dam

Give me guidance, show the way
Someone, anyone, give a care
Ten directions, all of them wrong
Where to aim, I don't know where

I need a rest, I need to sleep
And sort out all my muddled thoughts
Some such release is all I seek
Though to me it won't be brought...

--------------------------

Erm... yeah, that didn't work out how I wanted it to...

Ayame
Dec 6, 2002, 06:11 PM
I loved that! It was great...honestly. http://www.pso-world.com/psoworld/images/phpbb/icons/smiles/anime1.gif

Well...here goes!

A Musical Night

A Sound In The Night,
A Moonlight Shadow.
Butterflies Gathering
In A Nearby Meadow.

A Howl In The Distance,
A Crescent Moon.
Violins Stroking
A Familiar Tune.

Stars Shining Bright,
They Seem So Light.
Every Day Is A New Story.
But Don't Put Up A Fight,
Just Fly Into The Night,
And Realize The Night Sky's Glory.

No Longer a Sound,
No Longer a Shadow.
The Butterflies Left
The Nearby Meadow.

The Howl Is Just Closer,
The Moon Is Now Gone.
Violins Now Are Playing
My Fav-or-ite Song.

The Howl Was My Heart,
Playing Musical Art,
The Violins Continued Playing.
And Since The Very Start,
I Was Unable To Chart,
What My Heart Was Really Saying.

It Was Saying To Leave,
Leave If You Please.
Leave If You Please
To Be At Ease.

I Will Not Leave,
Nor Be At Ease.
That's What I Kept On Saying.
And So I Set My Sights
Towards My Future Nights,
When The Music Continued Playing...

So...! Did you like? http://www.pso-world.com/psoworld/images/phpbb/icons/smiles/anime2.gif I went for a different angle this time...it's much more poetic now!

:: Stand Up and Hands A rose To Ayame : Very Nice
Here Is Somethign I wrote Since i lost the origional i had to remake it http://www.pso-world.com/psoworld/images/phpbb/icons/smiles/icon_frown.gif
But here it goes
" Final Breath "
The Night Is Cold the Night Is Blind:
I Close My Eyes Yet the Moon Still Shines:
I Do Not Cry Yet My Eyes Bleed Tears:
Full Of Fear And I Knew Time Was Near
That He Would Come; Brittle And Old And He Would Take My Soul
My Hands Red And Stained… Horrid Screams And Misery Rains
Angels Shouting As Full Of Fury.
I Held My Self; the darkness grew weary
Screaming Echo The Truth I Denied
My love just died.. And I Cried
As Dreams and Reality Coincide
Cold Winds Woke Me Up.. And I Took A Gasp
And Left I Looked ( Means I Died )

Tell Me what You think Please http://www.pso-world.com/psoworld/images/phpbb/icons/smiles/icon_smile.gif Thanks For Readin

Untitled...

It seemed so perfect at the start
Location of that missing piece of my heart
Gave me a sence if pure protection
But by showing my affection
Does that nevessarily guarantee protection from
Neglection, or perhaps my theory needs correction?
Maybe it was my perception that
brought this about in the first place?
Was it the personification during the
Duration of the relations we shared,
Or has my worst fear come true; neither of us cared?

That was a great poem! Keep writing some more stuff, I wanna hear more. http://www.pso-world.com/psoworld/images/phpbb/icons/smiles/anime1.gif

And Frosty, that one was really good. I liked how you used alot of words that rhymed with each other, even when they weren't the base of the rhyming in it. (That probably made no sense...hehehe http://www.pso-world.com/psoworld/images/phpbb/icons/smiles/anime2.gif ) It sort of reminded me of the lyrics in a rap song (Which isn't a bad thing, it's really poetic!)

Both of you did really good jobs! Keep posting more!

smiling faces pass by
slightly realistic, makes me cry
falseness relives through the face
can i believe it? i go at my own pace
what you want to believe, its understood
i did what i did and i would try what i could
making others feel better, its a good try
but do you even care? When you say hi
and you ask how i am, are you even interested?
somethings that stayed with me nested
emotions ripple and stop with time
soon my life will be mine.

Demise

Alone she sits below the windowsill
Looking with her back upon the world outside
Angst in her soul dead flowers on hand
Longing eternally for her release

Scars on her calves and red in the eyes
Blood stained knife on the engraved shelf
Spent tears dried only with searing despair
Born of the impossibly desireable dream

Knees imprinted by the pristine carpet
Her skirt climbs higher up her cut back
Keeled over in a crimson blood bath
Harassed by each ache of a beating heart

A knee-high sock with a single run
Captioned by the long chaotic ruled hair
Abating the blossoming of her existence
Cherished by self inflicted exit wounds

White collar shirt with red tie improving ensemble
Fallout tactically calculating her eventual demise
When and only when the courage deters fear
Forged with pity unforgiven from pastimes

Shoelaces untied flailing in every which way
Unfrayed as if from the factory warehouse floor
Soles wore down from a lifelong falsity forgotten
Ultimately leading to a veritably fallen existence

As dolls look on from their makeshift house
Girls of perfumed porcelain permeate hollow scents
Anthems from their cracked painted smiles lie
Gluttonously stealing what she'd hoped love repair

Sunlight streaming through the window closed
Bars perpendicular illuminating the cross road
Should the final plunge be the chosen choice
Bathing a soft dark soul in hard coarse light

To look under this young woman's disarray
Overlooking her self righteous deserved rage
Threatening the finished piece of revered art
Optimistic is my unspoken whisper already ignored

damm i thought this thread was gone, lol i remember i got banned for posting poems in "Off Topic." so i posted a couple of off topic subjects with tiles like "not a poem" and "not a poem either" after THEY (The Man) told me to put it in fam works http://www.pso-world.com/psoworld/images/phpbb/icons/smiles/icon_razz.gif they werent poems but were written in "poem form" lol any way i see this stuck around in the Off topic lol


Humdrum

I comfort myself and soften to melt
in the morning sun
I don't mind at all, you have to be on top to fall
and i fall
In my dreams it's real, the drumming fades and i hear
nothing at all
And i could die right now and never care how
things turn out

Everyday I humm
I humm the Hum to be the one
that humms the Hum

Another morning long ago and i still don't know
if it was you
I'm chasing after the day when my mind starts to fray
and i can finally get away
In my dreams youre real,the druming fades and i hear
your voice getting near
You brought me out like this, did i imagine your kiss?
Did i imagine your kiss??

Everyday you humm
You humm the Hum to be the one
that humms the Hum

I'm tired from all this humming
I'm sick of this song
I'm sick of going on

Everyday We humm
We humm the Hum to be the ones
that humm the Hum...

in my dream it's true
You say, "I'll see you soon!"
But i know when i wake up
You'll be humming a different tune

i posted a poem thread in FAN WORKS called "momentum vs. the gravity plan" feel free to read and post there as well since this seems to get lost http://www.pso-world.com/psoworld/images/phpbb/icons/smiles/icon_smile.gif

Looking to the sky for a solution,
blinded by a political pollution,
watch us all crumble to nothing,
we've fallen cause we wanted something.

War brings us life and death,
a serious game of brutal chess,
how can we now re-build,
rolling agressively downhill.

Its like a car with no brakes,
conseqences from our mistakes,
Anger will live on forever,
cause we cant co-exist together.

BRIDGE:
Does it get better then this? (x4)

CHORUS
We need a leader,
one that can fight,
we need a leader,
someone to make this right,
someone to make us safe at night,
we need a leader (x2)


Call it poetry if you want...Its one of the lyrics to our songs. http://www.pso-world.com/psoworld/images/phpbb/icons/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

"Acquinition of Lonliness"

Mulberry inscense intoxicate my thoughts
Pleasures in the scents my love bought
Sadness covers my saddened face
Because her lovely presence has finally left this place
Just in case, I go around my resedence to check
I may find some items or gifts she may have neglected
Instead of my other senses finding those, my smell detected
Perfume, love, passion, sadness, gladness, madness, satisfaction
Despite all these characteristics of how I'm feeling
Nothing can replace the fact that she's gone
Once again I'm alone, so I pick up my phone
To see how everyone's break was
Because words couldn't express how much I enjoyed mine
Time limited my enjoyment and my planned deployment
Of different things I may've had the chance to try
But the duration of love allowed those things to float by
My "what ifs" questioning events that could've occured
Just made me think of all of the wonderful things I would've heard
But I no longer kick myself, I don't mind
Regardless I still enjoyed myself, her love was so kind....

A "tame" story of what happened over my Spring Break....lol......

"Random Thoughts"
Sunny spring days get me to meditation
It amazes me that I once had hesitation
About both of these "life and relation" situations
At one time I hated it but now it seems that I'm finally complacent
My record of sadness and dispair; I erase it
Misplacement of once rampants sorrow
Make me satisfied with myself; I look towards tommarow
I feel as if I'm able to change oppressors
I'm so used to the ridicule phrased by agressors.
My mind was quick in memorization to assist in
Helping me remember the numerous sensations
and multiple highs I get when I search through her eyes.
The same feeling I have now applies to
Back then when we were nothing more than just friends
Grins cover my face when I think about it
Sadness covers our grace whenever I begin to doubt it
Possibly this is the proof I need that I can't live without it?

Abaddon
Apr 5, 2003, 10:13 AM
I havent attempted poetry in ages! But a month ago i came up with this:


MUST

Must grudges be like wounds
That close up, heal up, but never fade
Must our pity be thrust so deep
That we are compelled to wade

Must forgiveness be mandatory
Never can we quietly punish.
If we meant to steal the bread, or to slay the man
Then we would not feel remorse

Must souls be so rigid
That they reject all forms of praise
To go on believing that we are strong
When really we wish to be

Must we reject ones like us
That differ from our hue
Or the size of their nations
And their differed point of view

Our souls as hard as hearts
Our judgement based on diversity
Our pity borne from mandate
Our forgiveness out of courtesy

Our grudges the size of church doors

TRUST
Credibility for your trust in me
Shows inevitability in the fact that
Sooner or later your worries will have to end
The moment you consider us more than "friends"
Past relations shouldn't reflect the fact
That you neglect to TRUST whomever you run across
Your mind is blind; your feelings seem so lost
But you have to come to the conclusion that
Mass occlusion will devour you in loneliness
If you don't accept your homeliness views of relationships
Is skewed, and misconstrued, how will your level of trust be viewed?

BlackRose
Apr 6, 2003, 10:42 PM
The forest ends all around me,
The black maw of night opens up above.
I've found my way here,
though "fought" seems more appropriate.

I sit there and I think.
I take a moment and sacrifice it
to that precious self-indulgence
that I wish I felt better doing.

Who am I right now?
Who would I like to be?
I sound these trumpets in my head,
but no answers heed the call.

A cool breeze interrupts my thoughts,
and with it I hear a million voices
Telling me that they love me.
Why, then, do I feel so alone?

A million paths that I could take
But I only halfway want to follow all of them.

I'm really fond of your style, BlackRose. Flows nicely.

Most of my poems are incredibly small. Due to the fact that I use poetry to catalog my moods for future reference, I like to keep them short/to the point. At least, to me. It may be hard to translate what exactly I'm saying, so I'm content with varied interpretations. I'll post two.
________________________________

|A string: it captivates.
|The vibrato~ your falsetto.
|Liquid-base-- cover up the scar.
|Narrow within, expansive without.
|Your deviation, a quartet of five.


|Green drops: pierce the pupil,
|Visions of past, look to the future...
|Wishes granted by stems you crush--
|Flowers which stood; the scent is a rush.
|Bring pale hands into the sky.
|Hopes of ascending...
|Can you fly?
|The opposite of happiness, condemning the sad~
|Green drops of Earth,
|Eyes you once had.

I didn't really like the flow on this one, but it's an oldie so I figured why not post it....

History of Love
A crimson rose grew seasonly from concrete
Nourished by all elements
It's stem grew long to a certain extent
It resembled steel, it'd most likely never be bent
Even through all disasters, it grew tall
Despite the world being so big, it never seemed small
It needed no thorns for protection, it's name said it all
The flower seemed to have an endless lifespan
Longer than Earth, longer than the history of man
Longer than the eternal hourglass containing endless amounts of sand
When the flower was discovered it was in high demand
The flower seeds traveled to many people, that it did
Everyone misused the secret it hid
Because of this, the flower slowly withered away
Instead of sunny skies it encountered cloudy days
Men and women corrupted it, they took it for granted
The sturdy rose stem slowly became slanted
As the steel turned to copper slowly bent
The invincible rose lost the message it sent
The rose slowly started to lose power
It slowly became an endangered flower
The emotions inside slowly turned from sweet to sour
It no longer stood tall like a tower
As the flower slowly withered, it was retrieved by a dove
The two slowly flew to the sky above
The lost species of flower's name was love...

The Haze

I sit on the sand and watch the clouds float by
On the dark blue surface of the water
And watch the sky crash against the shore
in phosphorescent crimson waves

I've got that ugly taste in my mouth
the salty taste of sweat and blood
I feel it dripping off my chin
adding to the swath on my chest.

A bloody mess lies a few yards away
An enemy that was once a friend
The taste of a tear joins the others in my mouth
as I ponder all that could have been

The red haze took him, just as it's taking me
I realize this now, but only too late
At least for the purpose of saving ourselves.
I get up to my knees and pray for his soul.

I can feel my mind losing control
With my last bit of resolve, I wade into the sea
I begin to swim, and vow not to turn back
This haze will kill nobody but me.

No Title

Why are we cruel when we know it brings pain
Why do we fight when there's nothing to gain
Why do we hope that others might fall
Why is it hatred's considered at all

Why do we fail without giving a try
Why do we insist to complain and to cry
Why do we trade in our honor for shame
Why do we always pass others the blame

Why do we expect change when no effort is made
And claim we are powerless as our life is laid
What justifies these things we have let loose

Nice poem Frink: Title it 'Why' http://www.pso-world.com/psoworld/images/phpbb/icons/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

--------------------------------------------------

15 MINUTES OF BLAME

Surrounded by girls
Lean bodies and smooth skin
Like his own
Who do I have to blame?
Me, for being the way I am

Surrounded by friends
Popular and energetic
Like himself
Who do I have to blame?
Me, for being the way I am

Surrounded by fortune
Wealthy and possessive
Like his parents
Who do I have to blame?
Me, for being the way I am

Surrounded by bars
Imprisoned by fame
Suddenly worshipped
Then suddenly forgotten
Who does he have to blame?

Dreams of Chibi
~
Am I a dream?
forever haunted by night
Can I live and not breathe
so hidden from the touch of light

not alone, though
there is something near I know..
pools of color open, and stare
"is someone there?"

nothing but falling,
bottomless and endless midnight squall
"I am not afraid!"
although i'm so small

I feel it again,
aloud instead
my name is called..
hope and wings spread

not alone,
can it be..
do you believe in me?

i know you, i've seen you
in dreams?
i've waited so long
from birth it seems

kokoronohitotsu, two hearts become one
two worlds become one,
i feel the sun
i see the sun
i'm awake! i'm real!
i've found you..
~

Wai!!! The poem thread still exists! I haven't seen it the last few days I've been back and I thought it was gone! I'm so glad it's still around!
Great poems everyone! Chibi-chan, I really love yours. Frink, yours, too.
Well, here's a contribution from me.

Chronos:a Vision [in dreams]

Here now always
The time passes slowly
So slowly it seems I can see it
So slowly it seems I can touch it
Here now forever
I stand watching time
Watching you
Wanting to hold you
Just once Just once
You would crumble in my embrace
These arms that are poison to all they touch
Here now always
In the deepening void
Time stretches on
Endless and into infinity
Here now forever
I think about your smile
Your sweet breath, wishing
Just once Just once
That maybe you could wash away this stain
But I cannot hold you, cannot find even my voice
Here now always
Time laughs mocking me
So loud it burns my ears
So loud it swallows my screams
Here now forever
I watch you I want you
But my love is a dangerous drug and
Just once Just once
If I could...
I see you fade away with time.

the 'e' in the guys name should have those two dots above it, but, i removed them incase the board removes the e's altogether

anyway, the background behind this is basically that it was done for a role playing thing that i've been developing over the past few years... the people live in a permenantly frozen land and they're mostly artistic and such... this is a poem/tale that depicts the loss of the first king in the current royal families bloodline... anyway... uh... enjoy... or something. its not my best work, but it was written on the fly.

---

Azrael the wise king looked out over the people
his wife then prompted him to look to the steeple
Azrael my love, do you not feel the gods around
Azrael my love, do not go hunting for trouble abound

the queen pleaded in vain to her love the king
even as the winter sun light glittered on her ring
Serenity my darling, all will be fine on this day
Serenity my darling, the gods only want their say

The gods merely watch us with all knowing power
The gods have saved us in our darkest hour
the wise king smiled, despite his wife frowning
it was now twenty five years since his crowning

my love she pleaded, fearing this days coming
but from the cold winds her fingers where numbing
she knew his fate was one that would take him
she knew his fate was one that looked grim

at the age of fourty he was still quite young
a boyish lord who climbed the regents rung
a man of wisdom who was loved by the people
but this day was the last one beneath the steeple

unto the church he went so that he might to pray
for the gods to bless him on that very day
while he didn't believe in the fate he was given
he still worried, from his fear he was driven

he asked the gods that they may guide him true
for what lurked in the ice fields there nobody knew
he took his steed and his armour did shimmer
but in his eyes, no hope there did glimmer

the great wolven steed bounded through the snow
knowing exactly where the king wished to go
the same hunt that he had done every year
was now one that had his wife shed a tear

protect my husband, please listen my gods
protect my husband for his fate is at odds
the white hound of the snow fields is stalking
of hunting it my husband has been talking

please do not take him, his loss i cannot bear
to know that he is hunting, while i cannot be there
please do not take him, from his children dear
without their father for their safety i do fear

the queens tears flowed like crystal streams
while she reflected upon all those dreams
she was going to loose the one so wise
because to his fate she could not open his eyes

the wise king rode his great wolf proud
while on the low mountains he spotted a cloud
lo the white wolf is upon us my faithul steed
you have brought me here and that is all i need

he dismounted his steed and sent it away
as deep down he was aware this was his day
watching the could descend the mounain side
from a sheath he did draw a sword in pride

the sword burned with cold fire in the kings hand
the sword had been forged from the ice of the land
while the crystal clear blade gleemed quite coldly
the king who held it, strode forward boldly

the wise king was destined to die on this day
but because of his pride he wasn't going shy away
the cloud of the white wolf vanished into the mountain
from where a cave had been carved from a fountain

the king strode to the entrance standing tall
the white wolf inside was sat by the wall
Azrael, you must now surrender your blade
said the wolf , while at the entrance he stayed

why must i give up this weapon, i feel i must know
for on this day i have been destined to go
the king asked brazenly, with pride he stood tall
he looked at the white wolf, that in his eyes was small

Your majesty, the other gods have decreed
that your loss on this day is a tragic need
please surrender the blade that you carry
as my magic it shall certainly parry

the king sighed, his heart a dead weight in his chest
no sooner had he dropped the blade he was lain to rest
the young king wisdom was taken from the people
while his wife prayed beneath the churches steeple

every day she prayed for his eventual return
but if it would happen none would ever learn
for him, the name of the capital was planned
Azrael, the heart of the winterland

Wow. Your first attempt? Amazing. You did exceedingly well in that case. I thought you were an experienced poet. hehehe I hope you try again because I'd really love to read anything else you write. ^_^

Thanks alot Psylocke, you're real nice! I'm glad you liked it. I guess i'll try some more http://www.pso-world.com/psoworld/images/phpbb/icons/smiles/icon_innocent.gif

You're welcome, Chibi. ^_^ And thank you, too. I can't wait to see something else from you.

And here's another one from me, just because I can.

One Last Song

You never told me that you cared
Even though I always knew
It was in all the little things you did
That showed me it was true.
Whenever I was at my lowest
You were there to pick me up
When it seemed that all the world was dark
You were there to show me love.
I made many mistakes along the way
And always you were there
But when I needed you the most
You suddenly didn't care.
And now I'm lost without a clue
I don't know which way to turn
Realizing I could lose your love
Was a difficult lesson to learn.
You never told me and I thought I knew
Could it be that I was wrong?
I've left it all for you to read
In this meaningless little song.

Nightmare

Lost in a night that's haunting
Drowning in thoughts, daunting
I try, but there is no release
No morning light, no peace
Trapped by my own mind
Scared of what I may find
Yet, nothing more felling
Than the words I'm not telling

-BK-



Not sure if it's actually finished (I might edit it a little more), but that's the latest that I wrote.

Psylocke

BK, I think that's a really good start, but it could use a little more. Maybe just a few more lines. Something to give it a feeling of finality. It seems left open as it is right now.
Just my suggestion. But very nice. ^_^

Most of the people who read it asked "What are the words you're not telling?"

Yeah, I felt that it needed more, looks like I have 3 unfinished poems now.

Hey BK I didn't know you write poems. I like yours. I really suck in literature but I enjoy reading them, so I'll come more often to these topic. My favorite is lolita's poem on her extra info. It describes exactly as I feel. That's what literature is for right? Feelings.

EDIT: The poem is no longer in her extra info. http://www.pso-world.com/psoworld/images/phpbb/icons/smiles/icon_frown.gif

Same poem, but with more lines from me.

Nightmare (again)

Lost in a night that's haunting
Drowning in thoughts, daunting
I try, but there is no release
No morning light, no peace
Trapped by my own mind
Scared of what I may find
Yet, nothing more felling
Than the words I'm not telling
I fear what they can bring
Ending that upon which I cling
Hidden, something that won't be
A future I don't want to see






Reinaldo: I know what poem you're talking about. It was great, one of my favorites that I ever read.

Well, lets give it a shot...

Untitled so far
-----------------------------------------------------
The road was made of solid gold
The world shone with a divine light
I stood there in amazement
At what had been lain out before me

Every so often, there came a moment of darkness
Or a time that shoudn't have been
Through all of this I noticed though
The true power of a friend

At the time when the light was white
And the gold shone so bright
I enjoyed a peaceful walk
Truly none to better

But it all came to an end
From that moment on
I felt the cold of death strike me
As the sharp blade of betrayal pierced my skin
-----------------------------------------------

It's not the best thing I've ever written, I just wanted to write something about the difficult time in my life right now.

okay. i've delayed this ones posting a long enough time, and after discussing it, and seeking clarification on the matter, i've done my best to interpret how it would be acceptable to post the poem here, based on what was said, so, if its still unnaceptable to link to it in this manner, then i applogise and will have to as another has mentioned, look into getting a poetry section set up on my website so its not a direct link to the poem..

a warning about it though, it is quite possible that it will offend some, so, if you will be offended by derogatory terms or the almost religious overtures it has, then don't read it!

now to pray i didn't misinterpret what was said, and have to ask for further clarification (and thanks to the person that put up with me bugging them to know..)

and... thanks to abdur for hosting it for me.

[Edit] i missed one / and it messed the url closing tag up... oops.
