    Default Poetry & Songs

    Well ... Time to chance posting some of my non-literature work here ... I don't really write as much of poetry as regular literature, so take it as you will. Any opinions will be much appreciated, though. The thread will be updated as I write them after I'm caught up on what I've already written, so it is questionable as to how often new ones will be posted.

    Songs

    Sparrow's Call [Below]
    Sapphire Skies



    Not my best, but it is my first song to compose:

    Sparrow's Call

    A sparrow calls,
    From outside of these walls.

    I look towards the sky,
    And wonder why?

    Why can I not spread my wings and fly,
    Soar above, by and by?

    To shed these feathers of stone,
    For these walls to no longer be home.

    I look once more,
    Yearning to soar.

    Fallen no longer,
    I can see the ever changing path, yonder.

    Though not knowing where it goes,
    I follow the river’s flow.

    The ceaseless winds of time lift me into flight,
    Towards fortune and plight.

    Traversing the winding trails of fate,
    Whilst the hour becomes late …

    Based off of a combination of astrological myths, though the idea randomly appeared. ^_^


    Universe

    Gentle caress of the moonlight, harsh brand of the sunlight.

    By the star's light, plight of the solar system ignites.

    People of the sun, people of the moon.

    War and strife, or peace and light?

    Stand and fight, or leave from sight?

    Stars and planets unite, but for what right?

    To defend the universe, a common enemy born.

    Rest not, or risk the fate of the torn.

    I suppose I'll get my older poems out of the way now ... Well ... This one was my first, XD:

    Missing You

    As I watch the sakura blossoms fall,
    I cannot help but think of it all.

    The evening breeze is slight,
    As if it knows my plight.

    Staring at the moon,
    I think of you.

    Of one so true,
    With eyes so blue,
    Now I'm missing you.

    Again, this is an older poem (my second):

    How can I?

    Standing in the rain I sigh,
    And ask why?

    Why am I afraid of my affection,
    Do I fear rejection?

    As the days go by,
    My confidence remains nigh.

    Your departure draws near,
    Yet I'm bound by fear.

    My heart says yes,
    But I can only guess.

    How can I speak,
    For who do you seek?

    A bit more recent than the last two, but still from late 2008 (although I do like this one more :) ):

    Soaring

    Staring up at the sky,
    I watch the doves fly.

    A calming sight,
    Framed by evening light.

    One lands near,
    Beckoning for me to banish fear.

    A ray of hope appears,
    For me to tell the one I hold dear.

    Warmth washes over me,
    Like a flaming sea.

    The dove coos it's song,
    Lifting into flight to where it belongs.

    A white dove,
    Soaring on the wings of love.

    Time for another update, XD. This is one of my better poems, too. (Even if it is older.) ^_^

    Blue Eyes

    Though cool as ice,
    They bear little strife.

    Two of the palest blue,
    Clear as the morning dew.

    Powerful as fire,
    Blue flames that keep jumping higher.

    Pale blue eyes,
    Reflecting the endless sky.

    They are the key to my heart,
    And right from the start,
    I knew I couldn't part.

    Thanks, PF~. These are actually my oldest poems yet, aside from Universe, posted with the table of contents. You'll notice a clear improvement when I post more recent ones.

    Ren x Cou

    Elemental Gelade: Katana no Kaze
    ~ Sword of Wind ~

    Gentle winds dance through the air,
    Creating tenderness and care.
    Zephyrs coiling with growing might,
    Gracing the world with both power and light.

    So few desire to truly combine,
    Never looking to your unique shine.
    You are but a mere power sign,
    To those who seek a weapon divine.

    Do others see this emotion?
    The chance of everlasting devotion?
    Or just a gleaming sword?
    Something to rend a painful chord?

    As plain as it may be,
    The blessed blade is wielded free.
    Look past my eyes and you will see,
    A promise to be fulfilled by you and me.

    So few truly know,
    Appreciate your purity of snow.
    Only seeing you as a tool of destruction,
    Causing much strife and interruption.

    Yet one does not have to feel,
    To form a preserved appeal,
    This creating a peaceful seal,
    Still so perfectly real.

    We are different but alike,
    Capable of such an unusual sight.
    For our souls react as one,
    Hearts forming our own shimmering sun.

    *Smiles.* Thanks, Remew. I'm actually planning on writing another Elemental Gelade poem soon. Hopefully you'll enjoy that one as well.

    Thank you, Saint ... I'll try to get a comment up in a moment. This newest poem ... Well ... It says things for itself:

    Lost

    Cold, hot, this feverish heat,
    Something that refuses defeat,
    A thing obsolete,
    Yet incomplete.

    I stand at an impasse,
    Lost in thought.
    This, I cannot surpass,
    A light sought.

    Yet would it be all right,
    To be forthright?
    One faded in plight,
    Another kindled alight.

    I know not what to say,
    Lest it come wrong.
    After an uncomfortable sway,
    Wanting to blend with the throng.

    Uncertainty caught in a snare,
    Wary of a hurt glare,
    Pain to flare,
    Friendship beyond repair.

    It seems trite,
    After only words exchanged.
    But a precarious plight,
    Was well arranged.

    Yet confirmation in the past,
    Would mean it’s not wrong to care?
    Something that has grown in contrast,
    But in discomfit to declare.

    And yet, there is almost an unspoken pact …
    Time easing emotion into a gentle flow.
    Enticing connections to react,
    But also a fear to grow.

    With one link to break,
    It seems there was a past mistake,
    But would you think me fake,
    In these lines opaque?

    Based off of the kitsune myth. "Fox Fire" and the misting rain are reference to how they get married, and the former means the one they love.


    Fox Fire

    Some say we are but lore,
    Creatures of myth and legend.
    Yet we are much more,
    With powers beyond what most rend.

    A kitsune of fire,
    Master of many a guise.
    Capable of love and ire,
    Causing human and fox to rise.

    Few continue to trust,
    Blinded by their light.
    Putting off what is our must,
    Denying vixen sight.

    We of many tails,
    Paws and hearts of change.
    Searching for our spirit's sails,
    To glide on the sky's range.

    Only another can make us whole,
    Carrying our eternal heat.
    Joining us to create one soul,
    When we meet.

    It is our dearest hope,
    To wed under misting rain,
    Trot into the stars at a lope,
    For naught will remain the same.

    Now it is I who seeks,
    Listening to your soothing lyre.
    Wishing to be complete,
    Now that I've found my fox fire.
