    Default Poetry of Life

    Well, I figured that since I'm not getting much work done on my fan-fic, I should just try writing in little pieces. Poetry, when writing, comes especially easy to me because I can just let all my emotions flow out onto the paper and not really have to care about much. I'm not sure how often I'll update this thread, but I have two small ones to kick it off with.


    snow

    Floating around the world on a cloud
    It must be nice: the view up there
    What does it look like?
    Why do you not tell me?
    Come down and let me know
    I have been waiting all year
    So please, come down now
    I cannot wait to see you again
    Your could air
    Your icy breath
    The way you dress the trees
    It is all so beautiful
    So come down now, why do you not?
    I want to play again soon
    I want to go outside
    Where the air is cold
    And the sun is hot
    My breath is frozen
    But my heart is not
    Oh, come and play with me
    I am waiting here all alone
    Oh come and play with me
    Before I get too old





    Air

    Such an independent thing you are
    Free as you can be
    I need you
    But you do not need me
    So why do you always stay?
    Our relationship is mute
    But you are all around me
    But I cannot see you
    Why could that be?
    Is it magic?
    Is it my eyes?
    Why are you hidden?
    Don’t be shy
    Let me see you
    Let me touch you
    Let me taste you
    Let me smell you
    Let me hear you
    I only can on certain days
    Why are you hiding from me
    I want to know you better
    Come out, reveal yourself
    I haven’t got all day
    You may have many lives
    But soon enough,
    I'll be gray

    Really love both poems. The personification of snow and air were done beautifully.

    I'm not usually one for poems as I'm not really an expert on them. And yet I do have to say that this poems definetily interested me, the prose is pretty good and I just like the way they flow together and kind of grab you while also showing emotion and meaning. I for one preferred Air because it points out something I myself have thought at times during my life.

    Came up with the idea yesterday, and polished it off today. Although truthfully, I don't like editing too much because it replaces raw emotion with artificial, but I still like it. Hopefully you'll enjoy it.

    Fire

    A commandment of heat
    An oath of passion
    Your flame burns with great vision
    But you fail to see it, do you not?
    Oh how arrogant you are
    You think you know it all
    But indeed you know so little
    With the smallest breath you can be knocked down
    Truly, quite a pity
    If only you thought of others
    You might be doing fine
    Stop, look up and think
    What do you really want?
    Wealth?
    Fame?
    Love?
    Can you truly not see it?
    You are no better than I thought
    Happiness
    Happiness is what you want
    No
    Happiness is what you need
    So go get it, why don’t you?
    What is holding you back?
    Are you scared of the wind?
    Or is it the fear of a last breath?
    Your arrogance has gotten you nowhere
    Your egotistical ways
    But simply put you are no greater than a gnat
    Yes, a gnat, dare I say
    A small creature indeed
    Maybe if you saw a different way
    You could be at ease
    But it is too late now
    You are too stubborn
    It could never work out
    So go, be gone
    Get away from here
    Before I put you out myself

    Wrote it a week ago in school, decided to polish it off this afternoon. Should have another one posted tonight.

    Sand

    Before I say anything
    Let me begin with sorry
    I have stepped all over
    Your soft, warm face
    I regret it all
    Even though I am much too late
    You have had a lot going on
    Too much indeed
    I should have been there
    I should have helped you
    I should have taken it all back
    Because whenever you were not looking
    I spat in your face
    You were always there
    Beneath my feet
    Giving me support
    Your warm touch
    Your softness
    You lent me support
    But all I gave you was hate
    I crashed down on you much too often
    I was ignorant
    A fool
    But it is too late
    I know you will not recover
    I have dampened you too much
    Damped you with hatred
    Soiled your warmth
    So I will leave
    Leave you be
    Just remember
    I am sorry

    From all the poems posted here, Fire is my favorite.
    You could even write it in a paragraph form, like prose. That's how I see it; less like a poem, and more like written word.

    I'm the essence of
    daydreamer. time-waster. black and white painter.
    in an upside-down world.
    eyes closed. dreams unfold. ascending realities; open to me.
