An old fashioned poem tellin'! By garsh, it's been awhile.

<b>Dar Squid And Dar Boat</b>

Dar once wars a squid called Jenny.
He hard three of tharm tentacles too many.
He hard thirteen long arms
but lacked squiddy charm
and his brain wars the size of a penny.
In dar squid's belly
thar be things like raspberry jelly
and fresh leafy greens
and pinball machines
for dar squid eats what it spies
with it's darstardly eyes, arrr.
Once Jenny saw a large boat
dart he murstook for a goat.
He bit warth his beak
which carrsed a large leak
and dar boat would soon cease tar float.
Dar captain ran out
and gave a loud shout.
"Arrr! This be warrr!"
for his silver spoon wars not far.
But Jenny's tentarcles flipped,
and dar captain did trip
dar lethal spoon hit a gas can
while the captain fell on his ass, then ran
to strike arlight a match
with a flip and a scratch.
Ter his mateys he would boast
about der squid he would roast.
But came not true, his calamari dream
fer he dropped dar match in dar gasoline.
Dar captain met his doom
and the squid ran away with the spoon.

Coldy, this is my favorite piece of yours so far!
Please, keep posting your brilliant work, I get a kick out of reading it...

I never thought pirate jargon could form itself into a class A++ poem, but you would certainly be resident expert on writing one! Excellent work, Coldeh, excellent work.

I enjoyed it too, it's very ... different from what often tends to be written.

Seems like people liked the pirate one, so here's another piratey-type poem.
Going Down With The Ship

Arrr. G'harrr! I be captain of th' finest vessel ye'll see.
Yarr! She be tall, she be strong, and she belongs ter me.
Titanic, they calls her, ship of destiny, queen of der sea.
Darrr, I took her out fer the first time today.
Called the engines set ter full t' send her on her way.
Late at night, I wars asleep, when I hard a noise.
It was the yelling of them blarsted crewboys, arrr.
I ran out up ter the deck, shouted at them mutinous dargs.
"Captain!", said they, "We're gonna hit an icebarg!"
I felt th' ship shake under me, rattling 'round me skull
as th' blarsted hunk of ice tore gouges in the hull.
A passenger came up ter me, calling me "El Capitan".
I ignored her (my ship wars sinking!) and shut meself in me cabin.
The water rose quickly outside, I sawr it through the windahs
and pretty soon I was underwahrter, lookin' at the fishas.
Arrr, the windahs burst, the water rushed in, and, hell, yer can guess the rest.
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.


This poem got published, believe it or not. I submitted it to a poetry contest as a joke, and I didn't win any money, but the American Library of Poetry published it in some obscure collection. Not only that, they selected it along with about 10 poems by other people to appear on a special audio tape called "The Sound of Poetry", so I got to hear a professor-like voice read it seriously while light classical music played in the background. The introduction said something like "The next poem has a mythological quality that transports the reader to an alternate reality." Sure.

hey I got that same thing Coldfyre. :P
This was the one they published of mine.

Love at first site
From the first time I saw you,
I fell in love with you.
When you gave me kisses,
I knew you loved me too.

Your beautiful brown eyes,
Saw their way into my heart.
Your adorable face,
Keeps me smiling.

Your ears always soft,
Your nose always wet.
Your big feet a symbol of growth,
Although you only stand one foot tall.

I love playing with you,
And giving you baths.
When you leave for heaven,
I know I will cry for days.

When I hold you in my arms,
I wonder why you like that.
For usually,
Dogs don't like to be held.

Also had this one just published but not on tape.
Doggies are fun
Doggies are fun.
Fun to play with.
With their soft fur
Fur different colors.
Colors like brown.
Brown is a color.
Colors on doggies.
Doggies are fun.

(That one was from some weird poem style where you had to start the next sentence with the word that ended the previous, and the first and last sentence were supposed to be the same.) I think that is the lamest peom I've ever written, can't beleive they published it. :P

I like both of those (of course, I adore dogs, so I'm biased), and I think I might even like the "Doggies are fun" one best! Sure, it's short and simple, but does it really need anything more?

I'm making this up on the spot as I go. Right now I don't know what it'll be about. I'll title it when i'm done.

Sleep
by Adam Smith

Slowly, silently, slipping into still water
Softly sliding deeper
Darkness rolls in, caressing, staining
Softly sliding deeper

Muted voices mumble meaninglessly
Beating nameless rhythms
Rapping, tapping, slapping fingers
Beating nameless rhythms

Floating outward, up into the sky
Fading quickly away
Clouds and rainbows, sailing ships
Fading quickly away

Falling faster through warm cushions
Someday will I return
The netherworld tightly holds my mind
Someday will I return

------

Woo, done, and i'm about to fall asleep. Fitting I geuss.

Pretty cool, Live action Poetry. :)
Dog carcass in alley this morning, tire tread on burst stomach. This city is afraid of me. I have seen it's true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save us!"...

...and I'll look down, and whisper "no."

Always my Buddy

Postby Niralica » Fri Jun 11, 2004 2:26 pm

Well here is a lil one I wrote up, personally i think it sucks but I'm too depressed to make it better. Its about my cat, and my recent trip to the vet's office. :cry:

Hey there my Buddy
Welcome to your new home
we will take care of you
Show you our love
And you'll always be our Buddy

Hey there my Buddy
Your former life is over
No longer will you be neglected
We are here to care for you
And you'll always be our Buddy

Hey there my Buddy
Whats with the sneezing
Lets get you to the Dr
So we can make you better
And you'll always be our Buddy

Hey there my Buddy
It was just a tooth infection
But the Dr pulled your tooth
You'll be getting better soon
And you'll always be our Buddy

Hey there my Buddy
Why are you still sneezing
There is blood on floor
We'll make haste to the Dr
So you'll always be our Buddy

Hey there my Buddy
The Dr says you have a tumor
Rest now in peace and love
We send you off to heaven
But you'll always be our Buddy

Awe... that's sad... I had a cat die a couple years ago, she got feline lymphoma (sp?)...

But you know, it's something you kinda have to get used to. Cats don't live as long as humans, it's just the way it is. My mom goes through cats so fast I can't keep track of their names any more... Doesn't make it any easier when one of them dies though.


But off the depressingness, the poem is good. I think it's well written. has a nice feeling, a nice rhythm to it.

I'm going to pull an Atom and write my thoughts live for you.

Stream of Conscienceness writing:

I hate it when you look at me that way.
Like you can pin my soul to the bricks behind me with lies.

Tears boil down my cheeks and I seethe while you soothe and you don't even know who I am.
Can anyone see me? I'm standing right here in front of you, with a pocket watch and a smile, feeling naked as sin when I have too many jackets on.

How can you say something like that? What is there about me that gives everyone the impression that it's okay to hurt me? I can see your thoughts, taste them on my breath like yesterday's whiskey.

You're a putrid human being. I gawk at you like you're a flamingo on parade and you don't even see me. Do you see you? I don't think you love me anymore.
Everyday, you beat my soul down and crumble its remains like salt-less saltines in your calloused palms, and everyday, I allow you to.

A better question, do I love you anymore? What is it about you that draws my being into you like a moth to scarlet flame? The sweet sadistic pleasure-pain of you KILLING ME SLOWLY with your satin, silken tongue.

I wish you could speak to me like you speak to her. I walk down the street and I see EVERYTHING, the opaque clouds whisper and hiss, trussssssssssst yourssssselfffff.

I trust myself like I trust someone with a bleeding heart that tells me love makes the world go 'round.

I hate your eyes. I can't stand the swooping, sloppy and sloping feelings that they slosh into my guts. Like pig slop rolling and SINGING lullubies in my stomach. I see the bottom of too many coke-and-rum glasses now.
I hate coke. And I hate rum.

What does that tell you, my love?
Too many times, I needle my fingers, when I'm sewing your shadows to your soles. I staple your morale to your skin, and laugh when you bleed out.
Twitch and convulse, my love, it'll all be over soon. My voice is soothing, just like yours, bleed out my darling, the end is near.
I consider helping you to your feet, just to watch you fall. I'm afraid that if I do help you to stand, you'll push me down again.

Tell me again why I'm marrying you?
Because I love the way I hate it when you stare at me like you can pin my soul to the bricks behind me with your eyes.
I love you for PRIIIIIIIDE.
Can you swallow that one, love? That I can be prideful? Can you handle the fact that here I am, laughing, my cheeks painted black with asphyxiation and pink with sheer pleasure from dying because you will miss me?

That is why it's worth it, that is why I love you.
I love you.

why does my life suck
why does my life suck
why does my life suck
why does my life suck
why does my life suck

more than just at getting a life
i bet i'm failing school
econ
hell
i bet i'm failing life
as a whole
life in general

damnit
why the hell does my life suck so fucking bad


i wake up make some noises then go back to bed
thats about it
god damn
this planet is out to get me
i swear
fuck

i can't get a girl
i can't figure out why
every try fails
what the hell am i doing wrong
i feel like a failure
in everything
life
school
people
sports
i can't win a race
i can't do crap
i can feel sorry for myself and joke with my friends
few as they are
and thats about it
damn damnit damn it all to hell


i need a girl
a car
a life
friends
someone to take care of me
someone to love me
someone to hold me
someone to listen to me
someone beautiful
someone i can talk to
someone who will talk to me
someone nice
someone kind
someone smart
someone friendly
someone open
someone single
fokkin a

so tired
of this life
end this endless torture session
take me now
shoot me
cut me
beat me
burn me
help me
save me from myself
save me from life
save me from the world
give me the magical elixer of eternal A's
what must i do to make it in this world
i want to go back
do it again
try it all again
18 years is both too long and all to short
for a childhood
fuck this planet
this world can take it's rules
it's regulations
it's social norms
it's social pressures
it's needs
wants
urges
feelings
everything
it can take it all
you can take it all
and shove it
up
your
fucking
ass
you
piece
of
shit!


so tired
and sick
exhausted
i sprinted through my childhood
tried to slow down
before the end
linger longer
i can't
too much momentum
pulling me on
freight train
breaks are blown
cant we just go back
put it in reverse
i want to be 14 again
a freshman
come to high school
make a name
burn my computer
ace the tests
score the winning point
win the game
save the day
rescue someone
rescue people
rescue myself
from myself
i fucked myself
my own mistakes
cost me 4 years of boredom
of torture
i'm so tired
i want to sleep
but i can't
i have to move
keep on moving
push on
force my way
break the barriers
but they're so strong
i can't crack them
they're in my way
full speed into a brick wall
can't i go back

i hate my life
i hate my life
i hate my life
my life has sucked
four years
four years of hell
could have been
four years of heaven
but it was not
it was hell
i hate my life
i hate my life so much
fuck
fuck
fuck
fuck
fuck
fuck
fuck
fuck
fuck
fuck
fuck
fuck





give me a car
and a girl
a beautiful girl
a pretty girl
a cute girl
a nice girl
a funny girl
a smart girl
almost any girl
i would take her
make her safe
she would save me
give me a car
i would be happy as well
i could go
find a girl
make her mine
make her safe
make her happy
make her smile
make her content
she would do the same to me
we could go to the beach
sit on the bench
watch the sun set
walk by the water
skip stones
hold eachother
kiss
kiss in the red light of the setting sun
sit together
hold eachother
be happy
whisper sweet nothings to eachother
she could breathe life into me
into my life
into my heart
into my mind
inspire me
i could write again
draw
i could work
i would have something
something to work for
someone to work for
someone to make happy
by any means i could
do whatever it took
to make her happy
please her
cheer her


we could take walks in the forest
follow the trail
the one that doesn't have an end
keep walking
hand in hand
silent
comfortable with eachother
and ourselves
we could stop
i could touch her
caress her
hold her
she would hold me
her hair
beautiful
cascading
like a waterfall
over her shoulders
down her back
i would hold her
hold her close
kiss her deeply
our lips together
burning together
silent together
held together
no thought
only the moment
the kiss
the one kiss
that one magical kiss
perfect
in every way
the moment
we could be one
doing nothing but standing there
kissing
holding eachother
our souls entwined
nothing but the moment
the perfect moment
the crystaline moment
a dimond in time
inscrutable
untouchable
invincible
a fine gem
a perfect 10
rubies
emeralds
one emotion
love
joy
contentment
happiness
all in one emotion
one moment
one eternal moment
an hour
a minute
or a bare second
all one moment
all the same
and yet not
as i hold her close and kiss her
then we seperate
finally
after eternity has come and gone
the apocalypse took our bodies
and still we are here
in the forest
no time has passed
in that holiest of moments
now preserved
perfectly
every aspect
every feeling of her lips against mine
her body against mine
her hips
her stomach
her breasts
her legs
the grass under my feet
all
the smell
her smell
the flowers' smell
all
perfect
preserved
in the amber of my memory
until i die


that is but a fantasy
a fairy tale
for now
i wish it were true
i want to make it true
but what chance is there of that
i will try
i swear to try
but who
what girl
what girl would give me this chance
to make her happy
to show her who i am
how i love
how perfect we can be
together
i do not know
i cannot find her
there are girls
i could show them
but they are taken far away
distant
behind the locked doors of their own loves
why
why must it be so

I dunno, I just liked the way that one flows, Atom...

Well, to backfire, Atom asked about hadidjah's signature... It has a clip from the poem that I wrote a little while back when I rhymed my poems...
Actually... I think... right after ATOM broke up with me... *throws spotlight on Atom* muahahaaaa...

Diminish

I ran away to the ocean today, to bury my heart by the sea.
I danced among the glittering pebbles, but nobody knows it but me.

My soul's no longer sparkling, it no longer brims with ecstasy, the fire has gone out in my eyes, yet nobody knows it but me.

The people who crowd me skirt around, avoiding my pain and suffering, they choose not to notice that my heart is crying, so nobody knows it but me.

I no longer see, or breathe or care, without wishing this was some kind of dream, hating myself for all that has happened, but nobody knows it but me.

I will never forgive myself for the choices I made, and I pray that you'd tell me you're sorry, but I let my sould flicker, sputter and die, so beyond hurt that I can't even cry, confusing myself until I'm out of my mind, and nobody knows it but me.

You'll notice too late that I'm already gone, to crumple my origami-soul into the sea, you'll regret all the lies and the troubles you caused, and I'll make sure nobody knows it but me.

I ran away to panic and hide from myself, the feelings and my family, to stretch myself beyond the breaking point, and still no body knows it but me.

I ran away wishing it was different between us, and how I wanted you to say you were sorry, but my wish was in vain, and I all can say,

Is that no one will see that but me.

Dense Love

Sitting in silence upon her throne
Wondering why she is all alone,
She looks your way, you're in her sight,
A magnanimous wave, her smile is tight.

What bothers her so? You think to yourself,
While placing the book back on the shelf.
You get to your feet after completing your task,
Walk up to her and begin to ask...

With a wave of her hand she sends you away,
You archive the thought for another day.
The place needs tending, that's why you're here.
You finish your work with ardent cheer.

Later that evening she calls for you.
Curious and a bit frightened too,
You cover your nightclothes, pick up the lamp,
Traverse down the hall, hands quite damp.

A knock at her door announces you're here,
She beckons you in, "Come closer my dear."
"I don't quite know how to begin",
She says shyly with a budding grin.

"I suppose I'll just have to be true...
For all these years I have loved you."

So that was the secret! What caused her to fret!
How silly of me to completely miss it!
The furtive glances, the dreamy sighs.
The sparkle that was in her eyes...

But how can one such as she,
Ever fall in love with me?

Morpheme
(Inspired by Blingwolfs Journal)

You never raised a fist to me,
But I still ache inside.
You need not bruise my outward skin,
To make me want to hide.

Every little accusation,
That you slap me with,
Causes me undo vexation,
You must have been a myth.

You are not what I thought you were,
When you asked for me.
Can we go back to how it was?
I ask you plaintively.

Have I changed? Is that what it is?
What about me do you hate?
With all the venom I get from you,
You'd think we'd never relate.

From every angle I examine your thoughts,
That you express to me,
With malice and anger you spit them out
Oh so vehemently.

They stay with me and give me pain,
Is that what you intended?
Was this your way of breaking up?
Then please...

Consider it ended.

More "live action" "written as you read" (well not really, but close enough) poetry from yours truly. Editing and revising is for the not-so-lazy.


My Walk
by Adam Smith


I saw some people as I walked today...

I saw a man...
He was walking down the road
wearing a paper bag over his head
and talking to himself.

I wondered what his name was.
I wondered where he came from.
I wondered how he had grown up...

I saw a woman...
She was standing in a window
looking out over the evening ocean
and combing her hair.

I wondered what her name was.
I wondered what she saw out there.
I wondered if she would ever find what she sought...

I saw a boy and a girl...
They walked on the beach
their friends left far behind
as they spoke softly.

I wondered what their names were.
I wondered how long they would walk for.
I wondered if each knew how the other felt...

These are the people that I saw as I walked today.

Stream of Consciousness part II

Live and flowing into you from California, it's Chasma and her CrAzY thoughts!


I feel like my world has split into twenty thousand splinters today.

Like watching that spider stroll past that mirror that I shattered earlier.
I grin and laugh at myself for loving easily, no, for falling in love easily and then keeping it to myself like some kind of tuliped secret.

I see you reading this my love... I'm so happy that we can talk together, eye to eye, nose to nose, chin to chin, soul to soul...

You saved me, you know. God, I love you. I love to say it, I love to scream it. I LOVE YOU! I chased seagulls today and braided seaweed in my hair and giggled like a toothy infant because the sand dollars knew it too... They knew that I loved you like a shiny new race car. Loved you like I love a good opera with great company. How I love you even still like I can lick you all over like a lollipop at a carnival and still crave for more when you're all gone.

I love you like crazy.

I miss you like crazy. You're not even two minutes gone, and my brain swells with missing you. God, I love you so. You make me happy like you couldn't believe. When I woke up this morning, I stared out my window and cried with syupy relief because I rushed through another day-dreaming night and lived to talk to you again. I feel like a butterfly, sorry to cliche it, but I do. I feel like a butterfly that gets to fly away free among the shapely clouds everyday... I flow in and out of my sub-conscious like a bubbling broad gloats over pride. I'm a big girl again. You make me feel like I can own the world and wrap it in a yo-yo string and tie it to my past with the flick of a switch. Or at the very least, you make me feel like I can wipe my own ass and sew my own damn britches together.

Hell yes, I love to love you!

You could give me the command to "fuck off" and I would be so very happy to do so. I'm so proud to be your girl... You treat me so well, like I'm a person, like I'm a goddess and that if I don't get my way someone who got in the way of preventing it will have to be pushed off of the face of the Earth. Hell yes, I'm glad I get to keep you forever and ever.

I gurgle with sheer delight and glow with love... I reek of it... It gushes out of my pores and spreads like a thousand different specks of pollen in the wind... I'm pollinating the world with our love!

Gush is a great word, isn't it? I <i>gush</i> for you! And only you can make me feel this way... Like my skin can't be thick enough to contain my sparkling spirit for any longer... I ran into the ocean with all those damn winter coats and floated for hours with nothing on my mind but you. You can keep me going with a two-worded sentence, saying ANYTHING... Hell, you can literally say, ANYTHING, and I will beam like an idiot for days... Another good word, fellows. I hear you say it aloud in my head and I pride myself in my imagination.

Want to be "fellows" together? That's a code-name for forbidden lovers... It's a game that we can play... But not for long! Because I won't stand for it! If I love you, then I better damn well, tell EVERYONE so!

I love you I love you I love you I love you I love.................
YOU!!!

What is this, a Poem Battle?

The writing mood struck again. Let's see what happens, shall we?

The Mists

A cool breeze is blowing,
caressing the grass,
leaving ripples in it's wake as it trails invisible fingers through wide fields.
A friend calls out piercingly, questingly, for me to return soon,
but I am home.
The fields fade off into the night,
shrouded by the ghosts of old rain,
trees standing like giants, with their heads in the clouds,
lit only by a silvery gleam
that fights valiantly to break through the cloak covering the ground.
A deep breath brings the spirits of the night inside me,
where they tell me things,
old things,
things only they know.
I close my eyes...
and step foreward...
and enter another world...
beyond the Earthly demands of my body,
beyond the chill of night, yet still in that same night
with only that single strand of white moonlight connecting this world with the other...
This is my home, my world.

Here we go then, Atom:
ON WITH THE POST-WHORE WAR!

Goodbye

I've done it again, haven't I?
NO, <u>you've</u> done it again, for THE LAST TIME.
I'm sick of crying my soul away,
you're dead to me now, your face has no name.

I cannot comfort you, when you shun me aside,
You son of bitch, let go of your PRIDE!
I coo and I sob and I coax you to talk,
and your fucking emotions send you off to walk.

I beg you to look at me, pray that you'll speak,
I'm sick of pretending and too wasted to be meek.
You storm off without me and I'm fucking sick,
and tired of killing my soul, you chauvanistic prick.

No more, I chant, I rave to myself,
My cinnamon courage flares up when I yell.
And laugh like a madman, "I'm free, I'm FREE!
You're a slithering toad now with nothing on me!"

I giggle and bubble like I used to before,
because you no longer determine if I am a whore.
And I am F..R..E..E and you can let go,
because I'm like the circus with my show on the road.

Goodbye, I still love you, just not the same way,
When you grow up, please call me, and you'll have your say.
Wait, I can breathe now, without you filtering,
Just the fact that I can makes my heart want to sing.

And leap out of my chest, yes, my flowering blood,
Blossoms through my veins and my shackles crash with a thud.
See me be happy? I scream and I soar,
Away from you, and the life where loving you was a chore.

Please see that it's better when I'm not suffering,
Try to allow yourself to move on, to cleaner things,
Like enjoying your ice cream that you had let melt,
because you saw another guy show me how he had felt.

About me? OMG! Please, leave me alone,
I handled it myself more than you've known.
Why didn't I tell you? Because you're a jerk,
This is what happens, and why it won't work.

Between us. Goodbye, it's really been swell,
Hasta la proxima, I bid you farewell,
Peace out my homie, until the next time,
when our paths cross again, now I'm done with my rhyme.

Haha... Crappiest poem EVAR, but Bling told me to post it, so yeah, here it is.

Folded flaps neatly tucked under one another,
Over an empty box.
Wrapped in lovely paper,
Ribbons and joyous colors,
Sitting quiet and content on a shelf.
Lovely, tidy, neat...
Empty.
Concealing a void,
Shadow, darkness,
Hollow inside.
Under the carefully prepared tissue and frills,
There is nothing.
Tear away these papers and reveal the emptiness,
Expose the hidden shame of the cautious masquerade,
Open the flaps covering the void,
And let the light in.

I don't know what you're talking about, crappy... that poem was great. Struck a chord in me. (I don't know which one. One of those chordy chords.) If that's a "crappy" poem, I can't wait to see a good one.

Alright. I'm only partly in a writing mood, but I must perpetuate the War of the Poets (TM). What shall I write... (BTW, rap isn't the best thing to listen to while trying to compose poetry. I think i'll wait for this song to get over and a ... calmer, less-lyriced one to start...)


*sigh* you know what it's too late and i'mg etting tired of waiting for Winamp to pick a decent writing song. i'll write one tomorrow.

Intro:
This started as a message for an AIM contact who was away at the time... It started as only supposed to have one line... But then I got inspired and started rhyming nonsense... Enjoy, if anyone still reads this thread...

Piece


I can hear you in my thoughts, taste you in my mind,
I dream of you slipping on my tongue, and taking you inside

Join me in my ectasy, I want you in my soul
Your fingertips brushing across my body, I'm losing my control

Need and passion are thick as wax, then melted by the flame
Of our souls crashing, colliding together, and you whisper my name

I burn and yearn and long for you, and I feel so very lost
I am dead when you are gone, my essence crumpled and tossed

Like misshapen cranes and paper flowers molten in the rivers
I plead and pray you'll come for me, and my heart bleeds, cringes, shivers

My craving body cries for you, and my soul begs for your skin
Your velvet warmth pressed up against mine, you're my deadliest of darkest sins

But you are there...and I am here, can we cross soon our paths?
Because I believe my being will die, if I don't soon get a piece of ass.
