Simple, just post up any poetry you have written yourself ^_^

Code:
[B][U]Monster[/U][/B]

Searched for everything that was right in my life,
I Searched all night, 
But it was right there, in front of my eyes,
Babe, I’m so blind,
I wouldn’t see you, if you was here right now,
Staring at me, saying you loved me somehow,
How could you love a monster like me?
I’m suppose to be sweet, but I’m nothing you see,
You bring out the good that lies deep beneath,
I’ve tried to before, but I just couldn’t reach,
You are everything, and I’m weak,
I’m weak, I’m weak.

Without you, I can’t exist,
I need you to live,
And just look at all I did,
You call me a man,
But I’m only a kid,
A foolish kid, a foolish kid.

And I’m suppose to be a something,
But I look at all I’ve done, and I mean nothing,
To the hundreds of eyes that see me, 
But still don’t see it in me,
They judge me,
Sayin’ I’m good, before their eyes really see,
So without you I’m weak,
I’m weak, I’m weak.

And every time I open my mouth to speak,
I hold back the bull**** of the week,
Why even look at me?
What are you trying to see? 
What am I trying to be?
Why do I even breathe?
Something must keep me goin’ on,
Something has me up all night long,
And without that something, I’m not strong,
I’m weak, I’m weak.

But something must keep my heart beatin,
Keep me breathin’, Stop me from leavin’
This cruel World  doesn’t need me,
But I need you, so I can’t flee,
I can’t take off tonight,
Without saying my goodbyes,
And it’s gonna be the hardest thing to say,
But maybe I’ll be strong enough some day,
But right now I’m in no shape, so I think I’ll stay,
Coz I’m weak, I’m weak.

So tellin’ you means your heart will break,
And I’m a monster, for Heaven’s sake,
I’m evil, just grab the stake,
It’ll take a sec to put me, out of this misery,
So why keep me alive? When I’d rather be,
With someone else, with someone else tonight…Someone else tonight.

[B][U]
Starlight Café[/U][/B]

Sitting here at Starlight café,
People walking past, coz it’s just another day,
Bright sky, and the birds flying by,
I shed a tear, and I start to cry.

Tears dropping on my plate,
Spilling my love, and keeping my hate,
Yet when I stare up, I appreciate,
You turned up early, instead of late.

And baby look, it’s just another day,
It’s just another day,
But you know what they say? 

Nah, me neither; but let’s keep walking,
I’m cold, so let me hold you; while we talking,
And I’m listening to everything you have to say,
Your words surrounding me like love, that won’t go away.

So I take a pocket full, and kiss you for a while,
As we stare at the sunset, and it dazzles in our eyes,
I hold you in my arms, and as I do I realise,
This is why I’ll forever keep this smile.
This is why I’ll forever keep this smile.

[B][U]Reserved For My Love[/U][/B]

Play is about to begin, so I start to relax,
But damn this chair’s hurting my back,
But what they hell, I can fix that.

The guy to my left tries getting to a chair,
So I’m shoving my foot down, without a care,
He says “Excuse me, no one’s sitting there”
“It’s reserved for someone that‘s always here”
And pointing to my heart, he starts to stare,
So he moves to the left, when I make it more clear,
“This seat’s reserved for my love”
So don’t you dare sit there.

I look at my watch, and ah crap you’re late,
And babe, you’re about to miss the start of this play,
So I have to hold it all up, you see? 

So I go and jump up onto the stage,
People looking at me like I’ve gone insane,
Like I have no sense,
Stopping some guy in mid-sentence.

He says excuse me “Is there a reason for this?” 
And the security guards, now they looking ****ed,
But you enter the room in the middle of it,
Just in time to save my ass from all this ****.

And I look to you, and you look to me,
“That’s why I held it all up, for love you see”
And the guy gives a smile, so back to my seat again,
And the crowd applauds, and the play begins.

Code:
[B][U]They Always Said The Truth Hurt[/U][/B]

Last night I stopped, and I started to think,
Hour after hour, I didn’t know what it meant,
And just as the day had come to the end,
It came to me, and I couldn’t pretend.

You’re miles away, miles and miles away,
And I can type words, but do you read what they say?
I’m confused, I’m beginning to forget me,
I’m so blinded by love, I don’t see what’s real,
Are we for real? Are we for real?

I ask these questions over and over again,
They don’t stop messing all the thoughts in my head,
So last night, you could say that I bled,
It wasn’t blood, and it wasn’t red,
I was bleeding anger, confusing myself,
And I’m not sure if this is good for my health,
But ah, what the hell.

I’m useless, am I not?
I try my best, but what have I got?
Not a lot babe, not a lot.
So I guess I shake my head, but I don’t regret,
Could take out all my money, and place a bet,
That the next guy ahead, is better than me,
Because you can touch him, but you can’t touch me,
No you can’t touch me,
I wish you could touch me.

^ u didnt write that :p

heres mine that i did

The raven

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore -
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of someone gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
«Tis some visitor», I muttered, «tapping at my chamber door:
Only this and nothing more».

Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December,
And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor,
Eagerly I wished the morrow; vainly I had sought to borrow
From my books surcease of sorrow - sorrow for the lost Lenore -
Nameless here for evermore.

And the silken, sad, uncertain rustling of each purple curtain
Thrilled me - filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;
So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating
«Tis some visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door -
Some late visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door -
This it is and nothing more».

Presently my soul grew stronger: hesitating then no longer,
«Sir», said I, «or Madam, truly your forgiveness I implore;
But the fact is, I was napping, and so gently you came rapping.
And so faintly you came tapping, tapping at my chamber door,
That I scarce was sure I heard you». - Here I opened wide the door -
Darkness there, and nothing more.

Deep into the darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing,
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before;
Put the silence was unbroken, and the stillness gave no token,
And the only world there spoken was the whispered word, «Lenore!»
This I whispered, and an echo murmured back the word, «Lenore!»
This, and nothing more.

Back into the chamber turning, all my soul within me burning,
Soon again I heard a tapping, somewhat louder than before.
«Surely», said I, «surely that is something at my window lattice;
Let me see, then, what thereat is, and this mystery explore, -
Let my heart be still a moment, and this mystery explore,
«Tis the wind, and nothing more».

Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter,
In there stepped a stately Raven of the saintly days of yore.
Not the least obeisance made he, not a minute stopped or stayed he,
But, with mien of lord or lady, perched above my chamber door -
Perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door -
Perched, and sat, and nothing more.

Then, this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling
By the grave and stem decorum of the countenance it wore,
«Though the crest be shorn and shaven, thou», I said, «art sure no craven,
Ghastly, grim, and ancient Raven, wandering from the nightly shore.
Tell me what thy lordly name is on the night's Plutonian shore!»
Quoth the Raven, «Nevermore».

Much I marvelled this ungainly fowl to hear discourse so plainly,
Though its answer little meaning, little relevancy bore;
For we cannot help agreeing that no living human being
Ever yet was blessed with seeing bird above his chamber door -
Bird or beast upon the sculptured bust above his chamber door -
With such name as «Nevermore».

But the Raven, sitting lonely on the placid bust, spoke only
That one word, as if his soul in that one word he did outpour.
Nothing farther then he uttered, not a feather then he fluttered;
Till I scarcely more than muttered, «Other friends have flown before!
On the morrow he will leave me, as my hopes have flown before!»
Then the bird said, «Nevermore.»

Startled at the stillness broken by reply so aptly spoken,
«Doubtless» said I, «what it utters is its only stock and store;
Caught from some unhappy master whom unmerciful Disaster
Following fast and followed faster till his songs one burden bore -
Till the dirges of his hope that melancholy burden bore
Of «Never - nevermore !»

But the Raven still beguiling all my fancy into smiling,
Straight I wheeled a cushioned seat in front of bird and bust and door}
Then, upon the velvet sinking, I betook myself to linking
Fancy unto fancy, thinking what this ominous bird of yore -
What this grim, ungainly, ghastly, gaunt, and ominous bird oi yore
Meant in croaking «Nevermore».

This I sat engaged in guessing, but no syllable expressing
To the fowl, whose fiery eyes now burned into my bosom's core;
This and more I sat divining, with my head at ease reclining
On the cushion's velvet lining that the lamplight gloated o'cr -
But whose velvet violet lining with the lamplight gloating o'er,
She shall press, ah, nevermore!

Then, methought, the air grew denser, perfumed from an unseen censer
Swung by seraphim whose footfalls tinkled on the tufted floor.
«Wretch,» I cried, «thy God hath lent thee - by these angels he hath sent thee
Respite - respite and nepenthe from thy memories of Lenore!
Quaff, O quaff this kind nepenthe, and forget this lost Lenore!»
Quoth the Raven, «Nevermore».

«Prophet!» said I, «thing of evil! - prophet still, if bird or devil! -
Whether tempter sent, or whether tempest tossed thee here ashore,
Desolate yet all undaunted, on this desert land enchanted -
On this home by horror haunted - tell me truly, I implore?
Is there - is there balm in Gilead ? - tell me - tell me, I implore I»
Qucth the Raven, «Nevermore».

«Prophet!» said I, «thing of evil - prophet still, if bird or devil! -
By that heaven that bends above us, by that God we both adore,
Tell this soul with sorrow laden, if, within the distant Aidenn,
It shall clasp a sainted maiden whom the angels name Lenore -
Clasp a rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore!»
Quoth the Raven, «Nevermore».

«Be that word our sign of parting, bird or fiend!» I shrieked upstarting.
«Get thee back into the tempest and the Night's Plutonian shore!
Leave no black plume as a token of that lie thy soul hath spoken!
Leave my loneliness unbroken! - quit the bust above my door!
Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door!»
Quoth the Raven, «Nevermore».

And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming,
And the lamplight o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted - nevermore!

Actually, I did. And I'd like to see you find those poems elsewhere over the internet, because I wrote all four of them last night in Microsoft Word; thank you very much.

[B][U]
This Is When The Penny Dropped, My Heart Broke, My Life Stopped[/U][/B]

This is when I got a call, that cold winter day,
I’ll never forget what that voice told me, 
I was broken, and that’s all I can say.

So now I sit lonely on those cold late nights,
Thinking of why you lied, why did you lie?
I was there for the most part, was all I could be,
You said you loved me, but you were lying to me.

And it isn’t the fact we’re through that hurts the most,
It’s the fact you lied, why did you lie?
You know my anger could almost hurt you right now,
In a snap of my finger, I wish to bring you down,
But then I stop, and I can’t do it somehow,
Oh wait, it’s because I still love you,
But it’s all over now.

And you know I told you, I couldn’t live without you?
Well I guess I lied to that, why did I lie to that?
So without you, I may still breathe,
I may still move, I may still feel,
But I’ve forget what is real,
What is real?

And I thought about sitting out in the cold rain,
Just to try and forget what I am,
I’m just trying to be, what you didn’t see in me,
That way somehow, you’ll love me, see? 

Ah, how could you understand?
You’re innocent, I’m the foolish man,
You didn’t break a thing that mattered to me,
Just my heart, but I can still breathe,
Even though I don’t want to, I can still breathe.

So I try to get up, in the cold rain,
But I’m not strong enough, to love again,
You took my heart, a gap in my chest,
But maybe this was all just for the best? 

My friend gets up, “I digress…
This girl was just one of life’s mere tests”,
You can tell that to me, but try telling it to the rest,
Who are cold and naked, but are still fully dressed. 

I thought we were real, but I was blind,
You tore out my heart, and left it behind,
Oxygen may keep me alive, through the pain,
But this heart will never ever beat again.

I apologize for the poor quality :D
These were written many a year ago and used more as a creative vent rather than a serious pasttime :)
Deserts and Battles

Walking through long corridors of old,
They are forbidden, that’s what I’m told.
Running now, I am trying to get away,
Impossible, that is what they say.
This beast of self, chases me far,
I run alone, not lead by a star.
Forever distant in this desert of fear,
Only the starry night and my conscience is clear.
Sword at my side and cloak at my tail,
My courage and hope begin to fail.
I trip and lose my icy breath,
Looking back to my past, all I regret.
At the creatures feet I close my eyes,
And then decide that I will no longer hide.
Stepping back now my sword is raised,
Though I somehow doubt my actions are praised.
The blade is blunt but my fire of heart,
Is what tore this creature of fear apart.
Now I wander, in the deserts of my mind,
Looking for an oasis, for more of my kind.

Heroic Irony

"Swords clash and shields break,
Staffs snap and knifes shatter.
The hero will come and he wont take,
He will fight for you it will not matter."

My heart they say is pure and just,
But I do not know love from lust.
Im confused always about what to do,
I fight and love her but it will not do.

She is not mine and will not heed this,
If I fall into the dark watery abyss.
My sword hits the floor,
My body broken and poor.
I cannot fight when my body is broken,
As I cannot love when my heart is frozen.

Forgotten Thoughts

Isn't there more to my life?
As I fight through dispair,
Im sure I was born from Strife,
This just isnt fair.

I find myself falling again,
I reach out into the cold,
But missing more than then,
I just find im getting old.

I have to fight this,
dark thoughts of time,
Long forgotten,ill missed
yet i find myself blind.

My screams fall to the deaf!
Why must I bleed for them!
For me there's nothing left!
Why must I start falling again!

Its never enough, the tears I cry,
Its never enough, the pain I fight,
Its never enough, my worlds gone by!
Its going to end for me, tonight.

I will wait there for you,
Behind the firey gates,
You know that I am true,
But it is far too late.

I remember now, my forgotten verse,
Words of shadow, wind and curse.
The fight is only beginning,
And the angels cease their singing.
They see me now, and weep they do,
As I leave a final truth.

I love the world, and all its blessed,
However my thoughts of dark I confess.
I fight a battle of my very own,
Outnumberd, outgunned...forever alone.

Time

Slowly slowly it ticks away,
Like my mind it does fray.
I wait and hide until my time,
As I conceal a shadow inside.
How much longer must I fight?
Against the darkness whom doth might,
Pull me down under cloak of night.

I can only watch as the hands kill me,
I resist but times poison has befallen me.
When will I fall and how?
For to the Reaper I shall bow.
For respect I have, even for him,
As he is still a sacred kin.

I have alot more, many which I too terrible to post lol...man I had some problems :D

Your poems are great Ryan ;)

Dressed To Be Killed[/U][/B]

I’m keeping it all locked away,
I know I won’t let it get to me,
Why should I go? I should stay,
I know I won’t let her get to me.

So I got dressed up for my heartbreak, heartbreak X3
And after all of this, it was just fake,
You don’t know what my heart can take, heart can take  X3
After all of this, it was just a mistake.

So I got dressed for my heartbreak, heartbreak,
Do you know how foolish I seemed?
All those eyes were looking at me,
I know that I should just leave, just leave.

It's not really finished yet ^_^
 
can i post one


It died with you

I am the light that fades from this land
I fade with you, as you fade away
As you say goodbye, i say goodbye
But does it matter?, do they care?
I wanted once to burn with you
To burn beside you
Soar when you soared
But now i cry when you cry, i die inside
When you died, I died
My emotions, carried away by the wind
My heart taken, encased in ice
My love, it died with you
My heart, died as you died


All the forgotten heroes

How can an angel with a heart
So pure fall so far from grace
To have a heart encased in ice
Although she is free from corruption
Althogh she is free from sin
She still feels the
Pain of a thousand patriots
Those who have fallen
Those who will fall
We miss you all
All the forgoten heroes
Who lie beneath


I ask you

I ask you
Could you understand?
Or are you here for another agenda?
Are you here with half a mind?
Or half a heart?

I ask of you
Could you look into my eyes?
See the real me
The darkness, the knifes edge , which i walk

I ask you
Could you be there for me?
With a whole mind?
Or a whole heart?
Would you be there to catch me when i fall?
And hold me when i break?

I ask you
Could it be you?
The one who completes me?
The war torn warrior
The answer i seek can only come from youre lips

So i ask you...

[U][B]What Makes This Real?[/B][/U]

As I lie here in my bed, wishing you were with here me,
I close my eyes, and I begin to dream,
But I’d rather open them and see.

Before I kissed you, I kissed you in my dreams,
Before I touched you, I thought of how it would feel,
Before I loved you, I didn’t know what love meant,
So you see,
So you see,
You mean everything to me.

Code:
[B][U]Merry Christmas[/U][/B]

The fire is warm and kind, like the touch of your hand across mine,
Gentle are the flames that light the passion inside my soul,
So I shall tell you all I want at Christmas time,
And that’s your soft touch, so please never let go.

Everyone around us, unbeknownst to our business,
Exchanging gifts, as outside it softly snows,
But the best gift for me would be your loving kiss,
Right underneath the mistletoe.

So calm is the whistle of the wind, and the night sky above,
And I know you will hold me this Christmas when I’m cold,
So merry are our spirits, as we embrace each other’s love,
You’ll forever be inside my heart till we grow old.

And I don’t care about what’s on TV,
I don’t care what everyone gave to me,
I know it’s sweet,
But it can’t beat,
Your love at times like these.

Because every day to me it does snow,
And it does look oh so beautiful,
And the World to me is magical,
Because you are just so wonderful.

So this Christmas it doesn’t need to snow,
This Christmas can just come and go,
Because deep down inside I truly know,
It will be the best Christmas if you love me so.

In death do we part

All roses fell as she collapsed in my arms, 
Stained by red patches down her back and waist.
I grieved in silence, But not for her death,
But for the things from me she broke and left.

I remember the way she used to look at me.
I remember the smile upon her face, 
I remember her strikingly radiant glow,
And I remember her trust in my faith well kept.

I wish again I could feel her warmth,
And drain her of all tears that flow.
I wish I could’ve been elsewhere that time,
And knew she was safe, and living on she goes.

I wanted it to return back to then,
But fate I see has a game of it’s own,
Abide by it’s rules we can only play,
Try to avoid and I would in vain. 

The only option allowed is to lose,
For my time and strength is all I paid.
I remember well our once sacred dream.
The secrets she held only in her heart,
And now it strikes me, that well-known phrase,
Repeated to another, “In death do we part.”
Code:
Imprisonment-A memory

A prison of darkness
Replaces that which
Once held love…

What once contained hope
Is now locked away
To where nothing can return-
A sea of souls
Lost and drowned
Never to be found…

Seek me if you can,
You will not find me-
In the shadows I hide
Atoning for my pains…

Forever here, I lye
Cold from the world beyond,
I carry the last of my burdens,
The memory of you,
In memory of you….

[B][U][I]You're Prettier Than[/I][/U][/B]

You’re prettier than the night sky. 
The infinite space above,
The time passing by.

You’re prettier than the sun rising, as a brand new day begins.
The sun shining to illuminate,
All the beauty that lies within.

You’re prettier than the sunset dazzling across the ocean waves.
As it settles to rest,
And rises the next day.

You’re prettier than Heaven, and all the Angels that lie above.
As Heaven would mean nothing,
If it didn’t have your love.

You’re prettier than roses, and all other flowers too.
Their looks are sweet,
But they can’t compete,
With all the beauty that is you.

You’re prettier than the splashing waves, sparkling on the shore. 
As I catch a glimpse of your reflection,
Your beauty meaning more.

You’re prettier than any love, that I’ve ever felt before.
I’ll love you my entire life,
And for that I am so sure.
 
Call me

i walk the knife's edge between the pulsating darkness and the blinding light the battle, the eternal war between the two factions who fight endlessley for my soul
until i breath my last

but can we question it, the fight, for a prize or a goal
is that what i have become, a prize to those who claim authority, who claim greatness in the face of the foe

i feel like im falling
falling so far from hope, from grace
until out of the blinding light
comes a grasping hand
you're hand
i feel an explosion of memories, of feelings
raging around in my head

but i walked alone for so long
i fought alone
i cried alone
my heart became encased in ice
been broken many times
but
can a heart which has been shattered like ice, love again?

Call me when you have the answer.

Sorry if this is bumping, but I have new stuff. And these poem threads always die so easily :dry: Come on people, something must inspire you to write at least. I mean, poetry to me is deep. I write it out of love, but you can write it for many reasons. I advise people to give it a try, if you haven't already. And never think you suck, as you don't. Everybody will think they suck at first when they only just start out, so give it time. If this stays alive, please try it out :)

~Thanks.

[B][U]Nothing Else[/U][/B]

Nothing else could, take us away,
I want to be with her, till my dying day,
You either die, if you let her fall,
Or you either die, if you save her at all.

You have no choice, feel lost and confused,
People trying to pluck, everything from you,
You raise your head, and you cannot lose,
You take a chance, play your final move.

The pieces are set, and ready to drop,
The game’s lit up, and nothing will stop,
You feel the knife’s edge, as you’re ready to rot,
You stop at nothing, to give all that you’ve got.

The thrown blades hurtling at your very soul,
Enemies blinding you from your admirable goal,
Carving away, till you can’t feel any more,
A brave one steps forward, to open the door.

The light passes by, and caresses your face,
And the Angels proceed, not a thing out of place,
Your eyes witness something that seems from outer space,
You look to the ground, but then pick up the pace.

Into your heart, you know you’ll win this race,
The test only shows you what you’ve already aced,
You play the heart well, not a feeling to show,
Scared of losing what you know, you cannot let go.

So set aside all emotion, no tears will you shed,
As you lie cold and naked, upon your icy bed,
Your cold, in need of warmth to show you again,
That all of the darkness, made you lose your way.

I shall be your light, when you are blind,
The hand that leads you, when they left you behind,
The voice that tells you to never give in,
Your warmth that keeps you from those cold feelings.

But now we’re tired, in need of rest,
Tomorrow will show us our life’s conquest,
A battle to fight, and bring forth what is right,
All this for love, which stays true in my sight.

My line of vision standing, never blurred,
Through thick and thin, past the absurd,
Our boundaries are tested, when we mention love,
And dreams are fulfilled, when the other we think of.

I fight for passion, honour, pride,
And my love, that I forever keep inside,
I hold you, I love you and I never leave,
I give you time, space and room to breathe.

I help you, I guide you and help you on,
I lift you, take you and make you strong,
I fight, I feel and make you see,
That you’re the greatest thing to me.

The light that now shines, stops the darkest of hours,
The cold rain stops falling, there’s no more showers,
The evil dies, our love killed its powers,
So we can stand tall, on the tallest of towers.

[B][U]Loss[/U][/B]

Can you remember when I was cold? 
You kept me warm, and held me close.
I remember you said it would be okay,
That was a lie, that you did say.

The many nights I didn’t sleep,
Instead, my hours, I did weep,
Away in the cold and the darkness of night,
Loss of vision, blind in sight.

Past my tears, all I could see,
Was an empty World, with nobody,
Not a single soul would make me smile,
Stop me from crying for a little while.

I use to be blessed, but now I’m cursed,
They told me it wouldn’t get any worse,
I guess that they were not to know,
But through my feelings I did show.

You know the pain just tore me apart,
I felt no emotion, I lost my heart,
For you put the love, right there in the start,
And there’s no other beauty, no; no finer art.

So I’m broken in pieces, torn to shreds,
Nothing can cure this, so forget about meds,
Look through all the people, past all their heads,
I go where he goes, where the good guy treads.

With him to the grave, I follow him so,
So lost and confused, where do I go?
I can see you, feel you and hear you call,
But will I finally see light, out of this all?

So if there is nothing, when we rest our souls,
No warmth, light or sound; and nowhere to go,
Stuck forever as remains, just our broken bones,
This is just a tale, I wanted you to know.

Every day was like Heaven, when you were around,
Like an Angel singing, when you made a sound,
The greatest pleasure to love you, and receive your love back,
I lived my life happy, and I thank you for that.

[B][U]I Must Be Blessed[/U][/B]

I must be blessed by the Heavens above,
To have been blessed, with your sweet love.

Code:
[B][U]Sweet Touch[/U][/B]

There’s a sweet tale, and here it goes,
It starts with a kiss, and leads to a rose,
Her look, her touch,
I do love so much,
Each day our love grows and grows.

Code:
[B][U]Her[/U][/B]

To hear her laugh, brings joy to my soul,
To see her smile, makes me hold her so,
The sweet feel of love spread onto thy lips, as a loving kiss entails,
Oh the nights I do miss,
Where there was such bliss,
To make me laugh, you never will fail.

I could sit for hours on end, to listen to her voice,
As she spoke of how she felt,
Never have I,
Ever opened my eyes,
Yet from her beauty my heart did melt.

I knew there was love in the World,
But the greatest does lie in her,
For just a moment to kiss,
I would never swap this,
For anything else on Earth.

I wrote while I was still sick and my head was in a weird place. I don't know where this came from, but here it is. I hope you like it.



I waited for you, but you weren't there.
Waited all day, then ran the trail.
I've been sick a lot and now I'm scared.
I haven't eaten
I attribute that to my sickness, but that isn't it
I blame it on my stress, but that's not it either
What is it, is that I'm scared to death.
Scared to lose the ones I love
Scared to admit there's a problem
Scared to face the fact that I might have lost one.

I ran all day, but he was there.
Running beside me, sniffing my hair
I break dressers to try and help him
But he dies anyway.
I broke a hole in the continuum today.
And this is my price to pay.

I did something bad, I did something wrong
But he's not around to hear my song.
I want to apologize but I don't know how.
I broke the trust I held so dear
And now I'm left alone with my fears.

I cough all day and all night
If I hack up a lung, it still won't be alright
My ribs hurt bad and so does my shoulder.
I'm suffering from injuries no one knows I have.

Find me again some time tomorrow
Maybe then I'll be done with my sorrow.
Maybe he will rest in peace.
Maybe he will forgive me and make me smile again.
Maybe he will understand me as no human on earth does and
Maybe my head won't be in such a fuzz.

[B][U]Will You Still[/U][/B]

Will you still wait for me?
As seconds turn to minutes, and the hands of time tick away.

Will you still be there for me?
When I go to sleep, and when I wake up the next day.

Will I have your shoulder to cry on?
When I feel like I’m broken inside.

Will I have your help to guide me?
When my face, I would rather hide.

Will you love me when I’m unlovable?
And as cold as the winter air.

Will you wait for me until I make it?
Just to show me that you care.

I’ll wait as long as it takes to be with you,
Should you ever wonder so.

I’ll still be there for you when you need me,
And I’ll never let you go.

My shoulder will welcome you kindly,
And let your tears dry when they’ve been shed.

You’ll have my help to guide you,
I’ll defend whatever you’ve said.

I’ll love you no matter what you do,
And I’ll always understand.

And I’ll be waiting right here for you always,
So that one day I’ll hold your hand.

Thanks :) Here goes a new one.

I can't start it on my own, but I can continue it
My heart's an ongoing warzone
Should I have told you? Where do we go?
The answer is: I don't know

I can't do what she wants
but I'll do what I need
Maybe that does include planting the seed


I am blind, but I still see
I am foolish but I understand
I can't start it on my own but I will continue it
If you'll just give me a push.

There's nothing wrong with poetry. I use my poetry to express my feelings for the one I love *Who is a woman* So I don't see how that makes it "gay" >_<

Mine:


I sat there.

I thought and I thought.

But I couldn't find an answer.

Even as I felt the pain of not being able to find this answer, I was rocked to sleep by the moon and the stars as I lay in bed.

But then my eyes pop open as I screamed, "Where the hell is my roof?!"

^ Pretty nice XD Rep applied accordingly.

[B][U]My Gift To You[/U][/B]

That cold day you wake, to a knock at your door,
As you tiptoe softly, across the floor,
You open with caution, only to see,
A man standing there, saying “Sign this please”.

You take the small box, and go back inside,
Opening it slowly, you can’t believe your eyes,
A single red rose lies waiting there,
You stop for a second, whilst you stare.

A note lying with it, rests gently so,
Taking it to read, you need to know,
You see my name, and you start to smile,
After you read the note, which only takes a while.

Note - A rose is still beautiful on it’s own,
But even prettier, when there’s one more.

You take off a layer, to reveal beneath,
Another rose, to your disbelief,
In surprise, the smile is worth it all,
And yet another note, is visible.

Note - A rose is still beautiful on it’s own,
But even prettier, when there’s one more,
This is my gift, for the love you’ve shown,
You’re my everything, that’s what I love you for.
