Re: The Poetry Writing Thread v2

Here are some of mine

-Solitude-

It would be too much to meet anyone
Hidden deep inside, my solitude is laughing
While I watch the sky above

Behind me crawls the good and the bad
Tied to the joys of this world
And oh, how my solitude is laughing now
Holding on, nothing's yet doomed

It would be too much to meet anyone
When the dreams seem so close and far
And the sky is waking up above

The mountains so far away are glittering in silver
Beneath the heated fog
And in the valley I see the river

It's so nice when you forget all the fights
And listening to silence just once in my life
Where the joys and laughing waters
are the sky's eternal daughters

And what's the worth of meeting anyone?
When my heart blooms in solitude
And the sun is shining above

If I could only rule with the beauty of the sky
And have the power of all the selfish wants
Maybe just walking along a stolen path would make me cry
And just maybe, I would faint out and die

And I'd walk untill I'd completely forgot
All the wishes and the cries that wouldn't stop
I would go somewhere where solitude happily blooms
Untill it's all doomed

And I wonder why did I ever meet anyone?
And I am lonely when I quietly pray
Because I see the bits of good in everyone
And I am alone when I love, when I may

And I will alone travel to death
Human with human is always alone
The only thing connecting us is the huge sky
And all the quiet cries

~Hazel~



Come with me !
We shall weave the sky together !
And each hazel step of ours will last forever.

Distant seas we'll flow
We shall let the darkness of this world to surrond us
And yet you could be
The only Sun I'd ever need

When the tornados of my world
Shake hands with the soothing touch of your hazel planet
They will calm down
when your voice
surrounds them

When the freezing breath of fear
Collides with the warmth of our embrace
No matter how how hard the tornados turn out to be
The wind will not stand in our way
for we are too strong
and yet too weak
for anything more

Re: The Poetry Writing Thread v2

Here's something I wrote pretty recently. I'm strange.

"siliceous spicules"

i crawled into a glass skeleton with her
and dried inside, drifting lifelessly,
an empty, blank insect carcass;
this vessel anyone could inhabit.

so i spun her a perforate web
and entangled myself in her tendrils,
entwined among the strands of lies
i will never unravel or touch.

i am imprisoned because she laid me out to shrivel,
yet she creeps into every drop of ink i try to squirt.
if she spoke to me sweetly, i would never protest,
but i know she broke me as a consequence of coding

as i was cursed with half a lens and inferior sex,
lacking her inherent gift. i was never competition
but a tool to be used. i only wonder how thoroughly
i've been soaked with all the years spent trapped by her.

may i look forward to a suffocating wave washing me away
or a display case in a laboratory i'll never deserve?
may i be brittle but unbreakable, untainted by sticky dirt?
the problem with time is that i let go, and everything collapsed.

i want to remember the future
and not the past,
see the glass upon the table
before it crashed,

never knowing it was once shattered on the ground.

Re: The Poetry Writing Thread v2

glad to see so many talented poets on this site.....

Lucretia.....we're all a bit strange....lol, nice poem though, very good use of description, i can picture you're words in my mind very easily

here's my latest.....AW



At three foot high with bat-like ears
Dressed in a pillow case
Two tennis ball-like eyes of green
Engulfed his tiny face

A slave by birth, this tiny elf
To serve his wizard’s need
Mistreated and abused until
Through Harry’s sock, he’s freed

A free elf now, he does his best,
Keep Harry safe from harm
But manages to hex a bludger
In to his right arm

When offered galleons and days off
As Hogwarts staff, he said
“I beat him down to one a week”
“I likes to work, instead”

Time and time he’d come again
To render help and please
Return Mundungus or provide
A room that no one sees

His heart was true, effort well meant
The purpose for his life
Until it all was swept away
By Bellatrix’s knife

“A beautiful place it is to be,
With friends” his final words
Above Shell Cottage lies the elf
A guest of Bill and Fluer’s

No truer friend hath Harry had
Not worried bout himself
Keep safe the “Chosen One” for all
Just Dobby, “A free elf”


AW

Re: The Poetry Writing Thread v2

AW, I loved your Dobby poem! It describes him so well.

This is my first poem ever, so please go easy on me.

Her back is straight,
It wonít bend for any pain
Her steps are light and effortless
As she dances around the room

Her eyes are clear
The doors to her soul, it seems
Her wrists are small
Fragile, but they wonít break for any pain

Her long upheld hair shines
Seems too heavy for her thin neck
But it wonít break for any pain
Her skin is white and pure
Untouched

As she bows gracefully,
She fakes a smile
Wishing it would all be over soon
She breathes heavily,
Her tiny frame shaking

Her shoulders slumping,
Lips shaking
Something wells up in
The corner of her eyes
But her feet keep on moving
Barely touching the floor

And she falls, trips
Sinks together,
light as a feather
And she is gone

Iíve memorized the shape of this bruise,
and when it fades, Iíll still remember
the lopsided affection it represented.
Love that turned purple and faded to brown,
was tender in all the wrong ways.
And the days pass and the throb dulls,
pressure no longer lingers.
But it was there.
When the bruise has yellowed to nothing,
it will still have been there.*

I don't like poetry. After reading about two lines, I usually fall asleep. But I liked this poem. Well done.
