    Poems from me and my friend

    Post by Subaru7 on Fri Nov 28, 2008 12:06 pm

    One of my friends, who is at my house at the moment, just swung a poem at me.

    Here it is:

    I sit in Darkness, draming of the one I love
    I wait in Darkness for her to appear
    And when the light comes out, I realise the truth...
    My love only true in darkness

    He wants to be known as...stan da man. (Random, but no.)

    New thing, Stand da Man, now known as Kevin's poems are in Green and mine will be in Blue.

    From age to age, hearts abound,
    One after the other,
    Till true love is found,
    So on this day, I'd just like to say,
    Thanks for bringing your heart my way.

    OK, one from me. It's called Staples

    If I could only see you once,
    Then I'd staple my eyes open.
    If only once could I hear your voice,
    Then I'd staple my own mouth shut and not speak
    And, if only once could you be near me,
    Then I'd staple us together, for eternity.

    Yeah, I know, I'm no poet, but could you guys tell us what you think?

    I like them, they're not complicated but they're straight-forward and romantic Very Happy

    Thanks ^_^

    Closing my eyes.

    It's fine to hear you when I close my eyes.
    I can even smell you and feel you.
    But the true mark of love,
    The one that I show now,
    Is when I can see you with my eyes closed.

    Oh my soul, this one is bad.

    Haven't got a name for this one.

    Every breath of air,
    Filled with your scent,
    Makes my mind go numb,
    But not with amazement,
    Nor with hate.
    My mind goes numb because,
    For that one second,
    It knows you're near.

    Everytime I walk,
    My footsteps echo,
    But it's not me.
    Evrytime I speak,
    Someone replies,
    Like an echo.
    And as I walk and talk,
    My mind turns back to itself, searching.
    And, looking into my mind, I see only two faces,
    Mine, staring longingly into the other one,
    Yours.

    Jeez people, nobody seems to appreciate me.

    Anyway, one I thought up while talking to my friend. The name's pretty obvious really.



    It's a strang sensation.
    It's a wave that crashes in on you when you least expect it.
    An example of what death may feel like,
    killing you from within,
    It's simple,
    It's one word,
    Rejection.

    Finality

    I don't know why I cry at night,
    I wonder why I feel like this, why.
    How a bond, as tight as ours,
    Could crumble like this, after so many hours.
    I didn't want a perfect one, just a normal old family,
    But instead, I got a disaster, a fail, a tragedy.
    And now, as tear-stained keys are pressed,
    I fear that life has simply lost it's zest.
    And now, what was once a perfect trinity,
    Is a single line, in finality.

    Aww, that one is sad.
    It's good, but sad.

    Can't make them all soppy, mushy and romantic, can I?

    Even if I like the romantic ones better. Razz

    Yes, I finally finished these.

    Alright, first is "Forbidden"

    Am I to stay in one place for eternity?
    Living my life in loneliness and insanity?
    Pressuring myself to keep a straight face,
    To keep myself under control in front of the human race.
    And then of course, there's the reason this all started,
    The fact that I wanted to love seemed to the others retraded,
    And now, instead of the perfect life in my vision-
    This love is forbidden.

    And Forsaken:

    Forgotten, thrown to the floor in cold blood,
    Once again, caught in the stupidest rut.
    But it's only a concept being thrown into the mud,
    Because it's only a concept that's ruined everyone else's strut.
    It's like nothing I say or do can keep me awake more,
    Than the fact that I'm living for the opposite of hate-
    Living for only that which was mentioned in folk-lore,
    The Fairy-tale love and happily ever after, but now it's too late.
    Because of the fact that they ridicule and say what they feel is true,
    They seem to never realise what they've taken,
    They've taken the happiness and turned it all to rue,
    And left the hapiness on the ground, forsaken.
