I wrote a poem... oh what kind of poem is it called... The kind that has every other line rhyming, (ABAB) and then it ends with a CD rhyme.

14 lines.... SONNET! That's it.

Anyway, I called it... Smile I think, and the last lines are something about bleeding crimson and whispering brittle kisses to the shore. I submitted it as an english assignment, let me see if I can find it.

OMG. I don't have it on my computer anymore since the reformat I just did.

*tear*

ANYWAY, my point was, is that I wrote that a long time ago and YOU STOLE MY IDEA! PLAGERISM! DIE MONKEY DIE.

New creation from me :)

I'm Not Perfect
October 31, 2005

I'm sorry I'm not perfect,
Who you don't want me to be,
I'm sorry I'm not perfect,
I, too, wish I wasn't me.

I'm sorry I'm not perfect,
Who let you down again,
I'm sorry I'm not perfect,
I'm trying to fix it with this pen.

I'm sorry I'm not perfect,
Who only screws up life,
I'm sorry I'm not perfect,
I'm going to take a different strife.


/EDIT Here's another:

Forgetting
October 19, 2005

I forced myself to not remember,
What you'll think of forever.
Scared of those words,
That I swore I'd be tied to never.

Wishing I knew now,
The words that had lost their sound,
Wanting to remember it all,
So I can now be bound.

I think I've figured it out: I can only write poetry when someone else tells me what to write about. At least, right now, that's all I can do...

Inspire

Like a dove on the wind
She comes to me
Winging from heights unknown
Whispering in my ear
Of a golden tree

With glittering trunk
And leaves of silver
With rubies shining in the root
Free to take by any who
Have harmed a man never.

Or perhaps she tells me
Of a prince of yore
Who fought the dragon with a sword
And saved the maiden fair
Despite that she was poor

She is the one who teaches
Maiden of invention
Newton's lover, Tolkein's friend,
Her touch on all beauty is
Her name, Inspiration
"When the fuck did we get ice cream?"

I must say, Adam, that is quite good. I like it, particularly the second stanza. :D Write something about cheese now.

Fresh from the pencil:

Searching
December 18, 2005

Forever falling,
Into the emotional abyss,
Forever wishing,
For that one perfect kiss.

Forever loving,
All of the wrong persons,
Forever longing,
That one special version.

Forever wanting,
The one that's "meant to be,"
Forever craving,
Someone I'll never see.

Forever dreaming,
Of a heavenly scene,
Forever lusting,
The one that's just for me.

I wrote this. Apparently. I found it in a text file titled "idiot drunk poem", created May 6th at 7:30 AM.

Why am I so alone
When I'm home
With talking heads
Who are my friends
My name seems unknown

They call my name
like I have no shame
Who do I trust
I cause no gust
Of any change or fame

One man says I rock
Says Here is the clock
If you want to do this
Then don't you miss
Or cry into your sock

The other says I'm cool
Says Don't trust that fool
All he does is use
Don't let him walk your shoes
They're yours alone to rule

It seems my life is lagging
Behind, everything is sagging
I want to rewind
My life and find
And fix what is dragging
"When the fuck did we get ice cream?"

There once was a pali named Pipquin,
Whose hobby in life was a great sin.
He would spend every day
Touching boys as he may
'Til someone finally turned him in.

Four years since the last bump so... BUMP!

I haven't written any poems since... what's that above me? 2008? Yeesh. So, his new indie game came out and there was a flash sale on it on Steam and it was reduced to only $5. Someone bought a copy and was offering it up in a random contest where all you had to do was post in his thread about anything you wanted and he'd pick someone to gift the game to. I wrote this:

There once was a game named fly'n,
And I'd be most truly sigh'n,
If I were to dream
Of this game on steam
So I'm on my knees a-cryin':

I like feathers and birds and things,
Better than any diamond rings,
If you gift this to me
You'd undoubtedly see
A true sky-wild heart that sings.

~Lightfeather

He liked my poem so he bought an extra copy of the game to give to me and used a randomizer to pick a second winner from the rest of the contestants who posted with me. ♥

That made my day. I love winning stuff. Plus the game looks beautiful! here's a two minute game trailer on youtube:
