    Default MCD's Anthology of Poems

    'Hey hey! Just thought I'd pop by to post some of my poems. If I get enough responses, I'll post some more... and... stuff... Anyways, here's the first:

    Dictatorship

    The man in his palace or temple watches
    As the world at his feet runs accordingly.
    Everything being as it should be, and all
    Being well.

    But when the Iron Fist simply pats the
    Earth of which it came from, all shall come
    Undone. All for what he strived to acheive -
    Nothing.

    One single act of power can strike terror
    Into the hearts and minds of the innocent.
    Their lives before them, ruined. What little
    They had, vanished, gone, destroyed. Time

    Doesn't stop for them or even the people in the
    Palaces or temples. For them, the world keeps
    Running smoothly. Everything being as it
    Should be.

    Power corrupts even the most pure of men, as
    Once the lust devours your fragile mind,
    Anything is at your disposal. A monster rages from the
    Depths of your stomach.

    But what of the innocent? Why should they have to
    Suffer at the hands of this evil, twisted man?
    Why should they have to rebuild everything of
    Value?

    It's not their fault that this beast runs their lives
    And has them like puppets on a string, with his
    Iron Fist. It's not their fault that they voted for
    The wrong party.

    Thanks Dani ^_^ Here's another one. Twas orignially the prolouge of a fic, but since it failed, I kept the poem ^_^ Enjoy:

    Prophecies

    Alone at night, a dying couplet say farewell.
    Their partings are swift; like an angel
    Of death. Betrayed, betrothed, between
    Themselves are a matching sword and shield. Alone.
    Together yet apart. But all is not lost.

    They will be reunited, not in heaven, but
    In the shadows of their past. Only there can they
    Reap for what they have sewn. Unpicking
    Every little stitch from the tatty hem of
    Deceit, despair and the most important:
    Death.

    The Five betrayers shall be persecuted. For
    When the past has been repossessed, Judgement
    Shall reign. It shall sanctify the innocent, but
    Condemn the guilty to a terrible fate.

    The Power of Love. Sent from Above.
    Death-defying this was not. But the
    Consequences will wreak havoc upon those
    Who have betrayed the Almighty pair.

    Those who have not sinned will be spared.
    But for those Five, a contrasting bridge of fate lies for
    Them to walk across. Unbeknown to their fragile
    Minds, their guardian angels have been stained
    With their vulgar hands.

    Thanks again Dani ^_^ At least one person cares about my poetry.

    Love is Conflict

    I wake, weary and almost delirious.
    I find myself confined, trapped, but
    Strangely happy. Simply lying in the
    Pool of love, yet with a chain clasped
    Around my waist and abdomen. I sit
    And swim in bliss and ecstasy. But
    Then it happened. The plughole opened
    And all came gushing. My Prison caved
    In and Out. My chain was being pulled and
    Yanked. I kicked and screamed and
    Wailed and cried, and yelled and tried
    To say:
    "Why aren't you letting me stay?"

    Yet, I remember little of those fragile
    Days. But the situation remains the same.
    I still lie in your pool of love. The chain has
    Gone, but the emotion still remains from our
    First struggle to keep ourselves as one.
    Now the fight has turned upon itself.
    Why can't I see my friends? Why not?
    Please stop yanking my chain. Please!
    I kick and scream and wail and cry and try
    To say:
    "Why aren't you letting me go?"
