Your Poetry
 
Letter To A Drowning Victim

I tried my damnedest to save
You but it was not enough
I must've got scared
It you were far too cold

All we should have known
That the overpass was too treacherous
But it would not matter
You would have gone

Wish I might that you were
Better but I have no hope
For the hope was gone
The last time it happened

I took my hands
Across your chest
Forced your breath
All for naught

I always thought blue pallour
Would be an attractive quality
Like almost translucent milky
Skin, but it's sick

I grab my hat, my phone
Fumble the keys
Emergency on the way
Emergency left and gone

I cry every night now
Out of sheer pain, the
Cessations of your breathing killing
Me; I won't forget you

Tadao May 4th, 2009 01:55 AM

The Selfish Heart

Pen laid down
Guitar unstrung
Paint box covered with dust
The bottle hits the glass.

In the corner
He keeps his muse
In a cage of rust
Waiting for time to pass.

Kitsa May 4th, 2009 06:28 AM

In 7th grade we had to write our own "epitaph".


Never should've touched it
Should've left it in the dip
Never should've looked twice
At that green potato chip.

It sat there so temptingly
It didn't look that bad;
And when I thought about it
All alone, it seemed so sad.

Never thought it'd hurt me,
Never thought it'd do me harm.
So I went ahead and tried it.
And that's how I bought the farm.

My writing teachers liked me a lot. My art teachers (almost) all hated me.

Tadao May 4th, 2009 06:43 AM

:lol

Fathom Zero May 4th, 2009 03:55 PM

green oh my green

How green are you today
My fair lady
Whom was so tired
That she couldn't
Cut the grass and that had
Feelings of envy for her fellow
Women?

Must you be so droll
As to expect me to make
Your day well when you
Are yet so pale and sickly?

How dare you think you're so
Helpless. Dearie dear, you are
As a blight to the firs,
It is any wonder why I
Keep you at all.

My senior English teacher liked this one.

ZeldaQueen May 4th, 2009 08:20 PM

Santa the Pirate King

Santa decided one Christmas Eve
That he was fed up and was going to leave
He was tired of the North Pole and endless snow
And elves badgering him wherever he'd go

He wanted to travel and see new lands
Cliffs and beaches and islands and sands
To travel the world he'd never seen
This was Santa's Ultimate Dream

So he died his beard a ragged black
And stuffed treasure, not toys, into his sack
He wore an eyepatch and started to sing
"Drink up me hearties! I be the Pirate King!

Around the seas I now will roam,
The entire world will be my home!
I can feel the sun and warmth for a start
Instead of building toys that should not come apart!

I'll feel the wind and enjoy the breeze
And go wherever I darn well please!"
Thus said the once jolly old elf
Who laughed with the thought, quite pleased with himself

To further prepare for his upcoming trip
He exchanged his sleigh for a galley ship
Then he left his eight reindeer on solid land
And found himself a crew of able deck hands

"Weigh anchor! Set sails! Check the wind!" he cried
"All hands on deck! Man your stations!" he sighed
"To the seven seas, to the oceans blue,
Now set sail you swabs, every one of you!"

Now Santa's a pirate who sails the Earth
But his eyes still twinkle and he still has his girth
And you can recognize the cry he'll bellow:
"Merry Christmas me hearties! And a Yo Ho Ho!"

The Leader May 4th, 2009 10:39 PM

I’ve written a Haiku:

There was a young girl
Who tried hard to be funny
She didn’t do so well

Kitsa May 5th, 2009 07:20 AM

*sigh* :blah

kahljorn May 6th, 2009 02:59 PM

awesome haiku :(

10,000 Volt Ghost May 15th, 2009 02:02 PM

Ode to the civil war

In the 1860's Abe said let them be free. The south took up arms against his decree.

Brother against brother fighting with bayonettes causing bloodshed. Brother against brother soon both will be dead.

Hundreds of thousands of injured and casualties. The legacy of a nation for the battle of slavery.

With all the dead bodies hitting the floor and gunshots like someone knocking down a door. So much injustice, violence and gore. This is my ode to the civil war.

(There will be more, once I get on my next break.)

Big McLargehuge May 25th, 2009 11:40 AM

The Civil war was a patch of daisies, the Spanish flu didn't break my heart.
Compared to the time that she left me, all of that is not worth a fart.

Kitsa May 28th, 2009 10:39 AM

There was once an old man named Don
Who put a sign out on his lawn
That said "yard sale"...well,
To shorten this tale, when
He got back the grass was all gone.


That's another from 7th grade, although I took a bit of liberty with the rhyme structure.

Fathom Zero Jun 3rd, 2009 02:12 AM

she's not mine.

But she's so close. I don't know if she knows just how much she means to me. How I cannot go a minute without thinking about her. How every minute I spend thinking about her makes a girl-shaped hole rip ever wider in my heart. How I think she's the most beautiful girl in the entire world and any flaws she thinks she may have are inconsequential at their worst and serve only to further accentuate her beauty at their best.

But she's not mine.

How I wish my finger tips would melt with hers, then move down her arms, down her sides, to her lovely legs, leaving contrails of tingly sensation in their wake. How her scent brings up within me the memories or everything good. How the mere sight of her instills within me an unparalleled elation, for truly I have never loved any girl as I do her. How my hands would ache, not being able to run themselves over the small of her back.

But she's not mine.

How the way her hair looks when she doesn't straighten it after taking a shower is one of the most beautiful sights I know of, and would surely be the last thing I imagine before I die. How her crystalline eyes belie a soul deeper than anyone before her's. How I love her punches so. And her lips? Oh, how I love her lips. Too shiny. In fact, too good to be true. They're what is good in the world. She is what's good in the world.

But she's not mine.

Even though she is as a beacon of light to me, the pinnacle of human beauty and fascination to me. Even though it would not matter to me whatever indiscretions she may have commited. Even if she was somehow made not as she is now, in an accident that rendered her somehow less aesthetically pleasing, it would not matter
to me. Fifty years from now, I can still see myself looking back on her as one of the best parts of my life, and how I would have given anything for her. I would feel the deepest regret, even if I had done all I could.

But she's not mine.

and I used to be okay with that. To a certain extent, I still am. But it pains me. And yet, the only thing I want is for her to attain every happiness possible, and I could only hope I would die trying to spare her some minute discomfort, such as a splinter or rash. Because, for her, she's entirely worth it.

Babe, you're worth remembering.

Fathom Zero Jun 3rd, 2009 02:13 AM

Poetry and love are only silly if you're just looking at it and not experiencing it.

I did write a haiku based on my hatred towards liver casserole during literature class back in high school, but it was written in finnish and translating it properly would be a real bitch.

Fathom Zero Jun 3rd, 2009 10:21 PM

It's an exaggerated view of feelings I have for a certain girl that is not mine, but someone else's.

RaNkeri Jun 3rd, 2009 10:33 PM

You're being serious?

Fathom Zero Jun 3rd, 2009 10:35 PM

Writing is the only thing I know how to do. So yes.

ODE TO FATHOMHERO

FUCK YOU

POETRY IS FOR WOMEN

ZeldaQueen Jun 4th, 2009 03:22 PM

FathomZero is a poet
And Misdemonar doesn't know it
He mocked Zero's dream
In a way quite obscene
And drank up a barrel of Moet

Tadao Jun 4th, 2009 03:31 PM

Zelda Queen is retarded,
This much is true,
No need to rhyme,
She wouldn't get it anyways.

Dimnos Jun 4th, 2009 05:25 PM

Me thinks ZQ has an internet crush on Fathom?

Fathom Zero Jun 4th, 2009 05:25 PM

There once was a man with a spoon for an ear,
And a tabletop vase for an eye,
And he would take to his horse and roam through the town
And declare Its quarter past nine!

And the regular townsmen, with a shaking of heads
And a noticeable stamping of feet,
Would say What an odd fellow, hes surely deranged,
For as anyone could rightfully say,
Its barely a quarter from three!

I dunno, Tadao is such a sweet-talker. Decisions, decisions. :rolleyes:

There once was a man from Nantucket
Who drank 'til he threw up in a bucket
He thought he was done
So he rejoined the fun
Then he heaved and everyone had to duck it.

Aren't blondes also supposed to be idiots? I like darker features myself.

As for me,
I try to rhyme
But now's just not
A real good time.

Fathom Zero Jun 6th, 2009 12:17 PM

My hair is to turn black later in life before going white. I get my hair from my maternal grandfather. But as of now, it's nigh on platinum blonde.

10,000 Volt Ghost Jun 6th, 2009 02:09 PM

My hair used to be crazy blond when I was younger as seen here http://www.angelfire.com/80s/threestupidpeople/12.jpg

Now its a dirty/reddish blond and my beard grows in red.

Blondes are usually sometimes smart people. They're good at making people think they're dumber than they are.

I've been a brunette all my life. With extremely pale skin (very Germanic apparently :sleep)

@ Tadao, not quite the features I had in mind. Besides, yours seems to be bright green...:\

I'm not always mean.
We should talk
and go on a zombie walk.

I know
You can be sweet
And that sounds neat

Fathom Zero Jun 6th, 2009 10:01 PM

I'll give you a zombie walk any day of the week.
Bayyyyyybe.

ZeldaQueen Jun 6th, 2009 10:02 PM

Take my hand
Across the promised land
Give me a twirl
Let's have a whirl

Fathom Zero Jun 6th, 2009 10:08 PM

Hey, any time
Just please don't rhyme
'Cause I'll be dead
When you're strapped to the bed

ZeldaQueen Jun 6th, 2009 11:42 PM

You're very good
I hope I've got this right
This format is odd.

Girls shaped like pears are hawt. No tits and all ass baby. :yum

Fathom Zero Jun 7th, 2009 05:19 PM

I don't really give a shit in the regard, sir. BESIDES, what have you done for me lately?

I'll blow you for a dollar.

Fathom Zero Jun 7th, 2009 06:25 PM

But I'll write a whole new bunch
Just as soon as I'm dressed

ZeldaQueen Jun 8th, 2009 02:23 PM

When I joined here many months
Many months ago
I called myself "insane writer"
This much I'm sure you know
A play on words, you ought to see
You ought to see, you know
That wasn't what I meant
Those many months ago

A writer, that I call myself
A writer, that am I
I write of those who haven't lived
And those who'll never die
But my writing's not insane
Not insane, to be sure
My writing is quiet ordinary
Quite sane is my lore

The insanity in my description
Which I wrote those months ago
Refers to my insanity
So finally you know.
My writing is quite normal
Of this (I hope) you won't debate
But I myself am quite insane
As I have been as of late

I hope you understand my mind
(Though there are few who do)
Congradulations dear reader
And my hat is off to you.

Kitsa Jun 8th, 2009 02:48 PM

Not to get too far OT (like it hasn't already) but my brother once had a birthday cake that said MACHOE MAN AND THE HULK in light-green icing, with a plastic Randy Savage up to his knees in cake and a plastic Hulk Hogan faceplanted in the icing. I've been looking everywhere for it.

(the photo)

Fathom Zero Jun 8th, 2009 04:11 PM

Dude, cakewrecks is one of my homepages.

Tadao Jun 8th, 2009 05:03 PM

ZQ, be a sport and post another pic of you so that I can write you more poems.

ZeldaQueen Jun 8th, 2009 06:06 PM

I don't have that many pictures of myself on the computer. The one I posted when I came on here was taken about two or three years ago.

I'll see what I can find.

Fathom Zero Jun 8th, 2009 07:30 PM

I didn't even see that one; :(

10,000 Volt Ghost Jun 8th, 2009 07:37 PM

You should get a new camera for new pics.....I'm getting mine on wednesday.

Pub Lover Jun 8th, 2009 07:41 PM

Yay! More shirtless Bill! :D

Fathom Zero Jun 8th, 2009 07:41 PM

I'm getting a camera that shoots a thousand frames per second. Not bad for a $300 point-and-shoot.

I want a DSLR, but I really don't. I've got one that is styled after one; a Kodak Easyshare something or another. It's just big and unwieldy and all I need a camera for is just takling pics and maybe some quick videos.

ZeldaQueen Jun 8th, 2009 07:55 PM

Eh, found one. I'll post it in the pics thread.

I went to find crows
But came back with doves.
The day was not though lost
For they're pretty much the same.

ZeldaQueen Jun 9th, 2009 12:27 PM

Kudos on finding that Tadao, I thought that thread was long gone.

The Dodo and the Old Bat
They thought the hours through
The Dodo with his research
Philosophy was all the Bat would do

The Dodo was demoted
Or so it was said
The Old Bat taught his lectures
That went right over his students' heads

That's based on two characters in a story I'm working on.

Probably more acurate yeah. But it's technically not a Dodo, just a guy that looks like one (yes, the story's obviously children's fiction).

10,000 Volt Ghost Jun 23rd, 2009 05:40 PM

Well I don't practice San-ga-ria. I ain't got White Zinfandal. I had a Sauvignon blanc, but i'd....I'd consume it all. If I could find that heina and the cuervo that shes found. Well I'd pop the cap off cuervo and drink it down.

I need a better 4th line.

10,000 Volt Ghost Dec 22nd, 2009 12:55 AM

bumping this instead of creating a new one and it getting lumped together.

I get smart like Don Adams. Write flows you can't handle. Look at you with your emo hair all mangled. When we tangle I'll grab you like an orangutan will.


My hearts so broken over the years even the Ataris don't know how I feel. Not looking for your sympathy just trying to be real. Sometimes I don't even know how to deal. You say you're here for my heart but I see the dollar signs in your eyes and hear your getting ready to steal. That's why my emotions are as cold as steel. My heart is Stone Cold like Bryan Bosworth except I'm not a shitty movie. Just trying to find someone to move me.

Fathom Zero Dec 22nd, 2009 01:30 AM

Bees

I asked my mother to tell me please
What it was like to be covered with bees
Fur and feelers all over my skin
Crawling all over my ears and chin
My hands and feet, ‬my eyes and knees
Covered every inch in bees
To sit and feel this tickly sensation
Unable to move from consternation
That in one second ‬every bee
Would jab their stingers into me
To sit and wait without a care
As they swarmed in and out of my hair
Across my nails and in my nose
Inside and out of my clothes
My mother said that my initial reaction
Would be pleasure and pain, ‬and then satisfaction

Tadao Jan 10th, 2010 05:27 PM

:rolleyes you just wanted to use the word consternation.

ZeldaQueen Jan 10th, 2010 05:34 PM

Actually no, I had to use "what is it like to be covered in bees" and "satisfaction".

10,000 Volt Ghost Jan 10th, 2010 08:08 PM

BROKEN SOLDIER

OOOOOH. OOOO. Broken soldier. Broken soldier, whoah. Where'd your pride go, soldier? Where'd your pride go? I couldn't help noticin'; your brass lost its shine, soldier. Where'd your shine go? When did ya lose that shine? There wasn't any glory for you. That shine's outta your eyes, the world musta broke you.
Ya just weren't strong enough. Now you're stained through. G.I. Joe, good to go; made of clay.

(Chorus) Leather boots didn't protect you, could only carry you, so far. I can't bear to see you; with your broken heart visible on your face, feeling so outta place. They broke you, soldier.
Whoah.

Where'd your smile go, soldier? Where'd your smile go? Did it run away when they took your stripe? Did it run when you saw those people dying? Ya just weren't tough enough. You tried so hard, but not enough. Do you hear the voices at night? Do ya hear 'em when you can't sleep? Did they break your mind too, soldier?

(Repeat chorus)

Shadowdancer21b Nov 14th, 2010 12:43 PM

The Boys who Bleed for You


My mother wept the day I signed my name. My heart swelled when I raised my right hand. Against all enemies I swore. God help me. Some of us never need to shave; Doughboys to the bone. Minutemen are we; always ready. Essayons! Semper Tentare! Do you know, we are all numbers, but we all have names. Every mother's son of us is ready to bleed and die for your sake. It is our fight that allows you to burn the flag you're holding. That flag is dyed with the blood of patriots and may it ever be so. I would have it no other way. To show the world. The brother in my foxhole never kissed a girl, never drank a beer, and he's ready too. We all stand. We are true. Our families know; we are the boys who bleed for you.

My father told me he was proud, even as I saw the shores of Grenada in his eyes. He turned away so I would not see that salty wave crash down his cheeks. He sent me on my way, with three old men behind him, behind me. The chain has not broken, five generations strong. the boys who bleed for you. We all have names; please don't forget us.

10,000 Volt Ghost Nov 20th, 2010 02:07 PM

I googled "The Boys who Bleed for You" and didn't like any of the search results
