Firstly, thank you Xero for helping me come up with the youtube name.
This is the topic where I'm going to post videos. The other topic is where you can discuss things.
This is the first video, Introductionary!
I did one for the fictions and now I'm doing one here for the benefit of everyone writing or reviewing poetry. Please note that I have taken this from here and have edited very little as I am no poetry expert and thought that it would be best to leave poetry writing tips to the experts.
I have started going through the threads and editing poems which are not in the default colours as per stated in the rules. If you KNOW you have posted a poem in colours, please edit it yourself. Any threads created from 13 Dec 2010 with poems in colour will attract a warning.
Theme: Sunrise and/or Sunset
Your poem can be written in any style. There is no minimum/maximum line count or word count.
How you interpret and use the theme is up to you.
Submissions must have a title (this will be used for the voting thread), but descriptions are optional.
Okay, sometimes it's hard to rhyme certain words. So I think this would be a good thread to have. If you have trouble rhyming something... check this thread! I'll update it as often as I can with random words that rhyme with other words. If you have a rhyme I don't have, and haven't posted, feel...
I am revamping the rules as originally written by Princess Ai. I am adding to and subtracting from them now and will continue to do so as I see a need for it. Be sure to check back to the thread title often to see if you have read the most current rules.
There is a pinned topic in this forum....

A thread for poetry,
of classic eastern form
haiku only please.
A lens sees
reflections of life.
Full of tripe
Why does it always
Gotta be like that?
Write satire, or even joy
It never hurts to be coy
Careful not to

Hello AF and welcome to AF's very own Poetry Contest, hosted by Kagami Sama. Being your host, I can ensure that this contest will last an average of one month with the winner of this contest receiving an edited trophy, also going to be created by the great MaruDashi....
Hallelujah is the word I sing today
‘Cause heavenly grace must be spread away
My spirits will rise and be exalted
For good actions should not be halted
I feel in peace and I feel joy
Keeping in mind this is no decoy
And when the rough times arrive
Against myself I’ll have to strive
This is the official discussion thread.

I don't think i plan to make this a habit but i figure it would be best to put these all together seeing as i did them all from the same sea of emotions. feed back is always welcomed.
I beg, no, what you should do
My heart bleeds in every instance
Every harsh word and incomplete...

So I was walkin’ through the city streets
and a man walks up to me and hands me the latest energy drink
Run faster. Jump Higher.
Man, I’m not gonna let you poison me.
I threw it on the ground!
You must think I’m a joke!
I ain’t gonna be part of this system!
Man, pump that garbage...
A poem that popped into my head after thinking about my signature words XD I hope everyone likes it. ^^
A heart so innocent and true
It doesn't just form out of the blue
It brightens the darkest of clouds
To the full extent of it's allow
Someone tries to imitate that pure...
Well I've decided to lump all of my poems into one huge thread now. This way people could see my previous work as well as my newest, that way they can see how I'm proggressing.
This next poem I felt like writting because I reread the story "Oedipus Rex", and I felt like fate was something that...
Well I've been working on this poem for a while now (about more than 2 weeks already). I couldn't really think of how to continue it and forgot about it, but I finally finished it. :) I hope you guys enjoy, and any helpful critique would be much appreciated, thanks.
Promise of Love
It was a...
The girl no one cared for
She screamed but no one heard
She begged but no one helped
she sang but no one listend
she asked but no one answered
Her name is angel, like those with wings
She's twenty and single, so pretty and caring
My legs starts to shake, my little heart breaks,
Will she love who i am? Maybe she won't give a damn
Her eyes are so blue, like looking at heaven
Her hair a brown hue, the sun makes it golden
I wrote this a while ago. I hope it's alright.
I thought you loved me
All errors are intentional.
It's weird, the thoughts one has in the middle of the night. The battles within one's own mind can have a much more physical toll than a battle with another person.
A day began, elegant and bright.
This will shatter in the blink of an eye,...

Why....? Why did it have to come to this?
I've lost my will, the beating of my heart I do not miss...
hope you guys will like this, i used to feel this way, but now im feeling better...
I see a girl in the mirror crying,
the tears in her cheeks, slowly falling,
reminiscing what happened in the past,
things she thought would last…
I wish i know how to stop her,
and tell her to get...
i know its not that good , but here u can view my thoughts and know me a little better through this poem.
The night sets softly
With the hush of falling leaves
Casting shivering shadows
On the houses through the trees
And the light from a street lamp
Paints a pattern on my wall
This style is different from every other poem that I've written, so I'm sorry if it's not too good. Once again, I've migrated back to the rain, where I feel most comfortable writing about. I'd really like to know what people think, whether I should continue trying to perfect this style, or stick...
A poem I felt like writing ^^ I hope everyone likes it.
I wish I could see
Whats right in front of me
But my mind is elsewhere
It seems to have gone away
Yo', check 'dis.
Mike check, one... one two.
Yo' you be sayin' a lot of crunk,
Sayin' I moderate with the stylea funk.
But homie you aint got no love,
Why do you love me,
Isn't it easy to see,
I am not an angel,
Why can't you tell,
You think I am this perfect girl,
Time for the first poetry contest under my moderation ^^ Aren't you excited? For the first one I'm going with a very broad theme in order to get as many people participating as possible. This time around your theme is "change." Change for the better, change for the worse,...
With eyes wide open
and heart open wide,
I flip this token
and hope it lands
on the head side.
I leave it behind-
someone will surely pick it up
and sulk in some good luck,
Hopefully the good karma
i wrote this when i was inlove with somebody, before...
hope you guys give me comments and critisism, thank you...
I am wond’ring what your doing right now?
are you sleeping or just like me, somehow?
wishing that days would go on fast,
so i could see you at last…
It pains my heart to...
Okay, another poem. This one is actually a gift for ~Zetromis~. But, I want to make it better, so any advice is welcome! ^^ thanks
thank you for everyone who has responded, it means a lot and I'm trying hard make this poem better.
As the sky falls down , no one looked at me but you
Burning my ground , why wasnt i feeling this as new?
In the rainy morning , i looked for you with my shattered wings still in search for you...
In the rainy morning , i wished you would come as my blurry eyes searched for you in the sky
I don't really have a name for this, so "Thank You, Love" will be it for now. I don't know if it really matches, but oh well. I'm still terrible, in my opinion, at love poems, but I decided to make one anyway. I'm also very terrible at rhyming, so this poem is probably really bad. (Sorry, but I...
