PostSubject: Poetry   Wed Mar 24, 2010 1:36 pm

Love is Like Fire and Ice

Love is like a fiery desire,
And an icy hate.
Love is a fire-like passion,
Yet it is an icy prison.
Love is a hot, fiery feeling,
It is a cold, heartless loss.
Love is like fire,
And like ice.

It burns your heart,
And freezes your breath.
It creates a fiery burn,
And freezes your senses.
Love changes the fire in you,
It can turn it to ice.
Love is more dangerous than a fire bound mind,
And more evil than an icy soul.
It sets your heart on fire,
But it can freeze it too.
Love is like fire,
And like ice.

It creates a bond,
It changes you,
Brings forth new things,
And takes them away just the same.
Love is great,
Until it creates hate.
Love can destroy the best in us,
Or chases away the worst.
Love is like life,
It isn’t there without strife.
Love is like fire,
And like ice…

PostSubject: Eternity Poem   Wed Mar 24, 2010 1:37 pm

Eternity

The world never stops,
It always moves.
Flowing forever,
Thru a timely brew.

Slowly life grows
Before it knows
That it will go
Without saying, “No.”

It goes forwards
But never back
Life won’t turn around
It must stay on track.

Life is a breathing beast
Every form becomes a feast
It moves along
Slowly, like a walking throng.

The world never stops,
It always moves.
Flowing forever and ever
Going on for Eternity…

Nice poems Rain. I liked them both. The first one kinda reminded me of something while the other one made me feel like time is essential. If I could just go back in the past. LOL. But seriously though, they were both good. ALso the fact that the rhyming wasn't forced so, yeah, Smile

Keep writing.



P.S.Topics has been merged Rain. ^_^

Here's one I literally just finished a minute ago. I don't have any ideas for a title though, so any suggestions are welcome. Here we go, it's a standard sonnet (14 lines, 3 quartets, and 1 set of 2):

(working on title)

Love has no boundaries.
No restrictions.
Its grasp is endless,
Forever reaching.

Love knows not distance
Nor any issues.
The old and young
All feel the pull.

Love creates happiness,
Unites the divided,
Forges a bond
Stronger than hate.

I have fallen in love
And I’m not going back.

Hey, hey, nice one Rain man. To the point I must say, and clearly the kind that happens due to a moment of inspiration. One suggestion from my side would be to make the last stanza of four lines too. It helps with the rhythm. This is good though...

I'd have to look into it, but I may be able to add 2 lines and make it a non-sonnet, which I'd actually prefer. May take a bit though...

And glad you liked it.

Alright here's one I wrote last night:

As I was about to jump
As I was about to fall
As I was about to take the leap
That would end it all
She came into my life
Got rid of all the strife
Now I know
Now I see
Everything
That could be
Now that it's
Just you and me.

---------
Sorry about no punctuation, but I have no idea where to put any. And I can't think of a title for this either. Sorry. >.>

PostSubject: Re: Poetry   Fri May 14, 2010 9:08 am

The only problem I have with this poem is that it's not exactly going to be read like I want it to be. The flow and ebb of the poem is extremely odd and can't be translated into typed words. This poem needs to be...well, kind of sang, I guess. The rhythm I use is...different...when I recite it to myself. Each line kind of has its own rhythm and each transition is (overall) different as well. It's a right pain to try to convey how it's supposed to sound (at least in my mind) to others without saying it out loud.

But I am glad you liked it. The one in your sig, I think, inspired it because your kind of expressed how I was feeling. But I didn't want to take your words, so I expressed it in mine.

O.o I feel like I'm talking a lot...

It is a poem. I know that much Lmao

And yes, your sig...in a way.

Here's a few I had forgotten about:

(untitled)
You can break my bones,
You can rip out my spine,
You can tear me in half,
But I'll still be just fine.

Emotionally fucked,
Physically screwed,
Spiritually broken,
But at least I'm not you.

Cooled Rage
I used to feel
The scorch of a thousand suns.
It consumed me. It grew.
I embraced it...
But then I met you.
Little did I realize
I slowly was left alone.
Left for dead.
But I didn't die,
I kept my head
And held it high.
My strength grew...
All because of you.
I could fight for life.
The scorch couldn't burn me.
No, now it fuels me.
I am no longer alone.
I now have you.
You are the moon,
Lightning my night.
You are the sun,
Brightening my day.

Here's some more I did last night:

One Day (Haiku)
One day I hope we'll
Be together forever.
One day I will come.

------------------

That Girl
Just as I fell,
A wondrous
Nymph
Extended her
Left arm,
Lightly pulling my
Enigmatic self

Back into
Order and
Reversed all
Options and
Made me
Enjoy,
Oh, everything.

----------

My Power

Inside every man resides a Power
This power can only be activated under one condition:
He must devour
His own soul.
....
Love will conquer all,
Prevent their falls.
Nothing is more powerful than Love,
Not even the Peace Dove.
For it must be Destiny
That I have you, and you me.
What else can I say?
That you're on my mind all day?
That my love for you
Is more than true?
You are everything to me,
Can't you see?
You are my Power,
My preferred Flower.
Now all I can do
Is say "I Love You."

--------

That's all I've got for now...

Uh-huh... I kinda noticed your poems these days are of happy things and such. Well...you know, you can really tell that there is 'something' that is making you write these poems. Anywho, love the theme but punctuation mister. ;)

I wrote this one last night, I guess. I forgot about it.

Shattered Darkness

As I sit, I think.
As I think, I feel.
As I feel, my heart shakes.
As my heart shakes, it shatters.
As it shatters, I fall to Darkness...

My brain is flooded,
My heart has stopped.
Nothing can save me.
I have fallen,
I have lost.
The one I need,
The one who completes me,
She is gone...

Summer comes,
Bringing death,
Loneliness,
Darkness.
My heart has shattered,
It will break...

My fear has grown,
I am lost.
Darkness has won,
It is spreading.
She will leave,
And be gone forever.
The tears have come.
They are a river,
A river of sorrow.
I shall drown...

The pain is building,
Building.
My breast shall burst,
My Soul shall flee,
My heart shall break,
And my mind shall rot...

Little can I do,
Little can I help.
My friends should leave...

I cannot help
Two who love.
The fallen angel and dead knight,
They will fall apart,
All from my Fall.
My love shall leave,
She shall go.
She will leave
Taking my soul,
My soul that
I don't ever
Want back...

Never shall I have
Her hands in mine.
Never will I feel
Her warmth.
Never will I be able
To keep her safe.
Never can I see
Her flashing smile,
Her bright eyes,
Her flowing hair,
Her beauty.
Never can I
Make her happy...

My heart
Has shattered.
And my mind
Has fallen to Darkness...

------------

Keep in mind, please, that this doesn't apply to my state of mind or feelings anymore...

For the record, Keith, I don't think I'll be doing much of that style. I prefer my old style, as well, and I think that that's how I'll continue to write.

Oho! Pure emotion unfurled that one. It is devastating to hear that you could have felt something like that, but from a readers perspective, that was brilliant. It was very straight forward, very honest, and very unadulterated. Fantastic to read...

Really Ar? I thought it was a bit choppy, cut up (no pun intended...), or anything close to being a "fantastic to read" type of poem...
