Writing Poems for all from all


Recommended Posts

I've noticed that there are a lot of poem threads around this part of Otakuboards and perhaps thought that it would be best if there was a single thread for all of the future ones; that way, if someone is just craving poems then it's easier for them to find since they'll be together. It would also beneft the poet since that way they'll have a higher chance for their poem to be noticed...or at least that's what I think. This might either be a good idea or a bad idea, don't know until I try, right?

As for the one I'm going to post, it was written a few years back and I was going through some dark times, so I'm sorry if it's a little too depressing. :animeswea The odd thing was, at first it was just going to be the first couple lines, and right after I saw an episode of Yu-ghi-oh, the rest of the lines just came to my head.

[CENTER]Lost In Death[/CENTER]
I once had a small house
That had a brown mouse
Where I was happy as can be
For I had no new enemy

But now I am lost in this world
Searching for things that I can?t find
That would remind me of my past
That was taken away so fast

But all that is gone
And so am I
Like a faint glimmer in the sky
Always to be forgotten
But never to be remembered

So this is how death feels
It feels dark
It feels cold

I can?t see anything
So all I do is wander aimlessly
With no purpose
Nor any sense of direction

If this is death
Where are the angels?
Where are the demons?
Is all that I have been told a lie?

Am I really dead?
Maybe I?m merely unconscious
No, I?m dead
Dead to the world
Dead to myself
Just like I have always been

I'm really starting to like you:blush:

To two old friends in memory of

Cocaine’s perfume

Her skin was the color white like, a powdery snow
my friend lost his sense he breathed her scent up his nose

Breathed her scent until his face started to look old
Her scent is what made his body cold

He breathed in so much of her scent it made him choke
His love for her scent caused him to overdose

And when his life was over
it caused his mom to become sober

And her scent has forced us to remember her name
Never forget the perfume of cocaine


Not many poets in the OB.
[INDENT][FONT="Arial"][SIZE="1"][COLOR="Blue"]Hey, 3minds. (^_^)

Here at the Boards, we encourage members not to double-post. Instead, we have an Edit button if you feel the need to add information to a prior post. If you're wanting to bump a thread, you can always delete and repost your old post as well; this avoids cluttering a thread with spam, and makes it easier to find the actual content in a thread. I'd also like to direct you to the[/COLOR] [URL="http://www.otakuboards.com/rules/OtakuBoards%3A%20Rules.html"]Forum[/URL] [COLOR="Blue"]rules and the [/COLOR][URL="http://www.otakuboards.com/showthread.php?t=56606"]Anthology[/URL] [COLOR="Blue"]rules sticky. Give them a quick once-over to get the general idea, and feel free to hit me (or any other moderator) with a pm if you have any questions.

And yeah, as you noticed, it is a little quieter around this sector than most of the others. I try to look at each new submission and see what I can offer, but poetry is not my strong suit—I lean more towards prose and essay-type material.

Good to see you, though. Have fun, enjoy yourself here, and keep writing.

[SIZE="1"][FONT="Book Antiqua"][COLOR="DarkSlateGray"]Not much respect for the rules either. Anyways, just decided to say that we've already had a thread like this before, it's not that old either. I'll link it soon, but just a heads up for next time.

ooooh i've got one...


On the edge of the Sky, i found a flower
One so beautiful that none dared to approach
In fear that its beauty will outshine all other.

Ashamed, i backed away
leaving it to be torn apart
by loneliness and misery

As i departed, its cry shook me
Like nothing has ever touched me before
still, my jealousy pushed me away
farther and farther
i was unable to find it again.

Guilt became a fire writhing inside of me
And soon i began searching
The corners of this universe
For the pathetic, sorrowful flower

After many years
I saw it again
This time, in the hands of a child
who's laughter rang out
like a thousand stars singing in the wind

And the flower
became a delicate ornament
to the child's naive laughter

Beauty, be it a blessing or a curse,
brings delight and happiness
to the purest innocences
of this world
and rejoice the fools shall
when beauty shines itself
before their honest eyes.

=D its...not too badly worded, i suppose...?
