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.
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 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....
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...

hey, I haven't posted a poem in a while . . . Anyway, I found the awesome infinity sign. *points* ^.^ And I was thinking . . . "To infinity, and beyond!" <.< so, here's the poem. Hope you like it, and thanks for reading. *Tsuki*
Infinity And Beyond
It's so hard to say "I Love You", and not draw back in tears
It's so hard to know that your not there to help me face my fears
It's so hard to answer the calls from my phone, not knowing it's not your voice
It's so hard to see you laughing when I'm crying deep inside
It's so hard to fall in...
Okay....let,s try this again
Your voice is thoughtful
As your face is beautiful
I miss seeing you
Cause I want you to be my bu
I miss your fancy hair
As you talk I would want to hear
As cupid strikes me once
I just stare at a spec of dust
My love is like an ocean
it goes down so deep
My love is like a rose whose beauty you want to keep.
My love is like a river
that will never end.
My love is like a dove with a beautiful message to send.
Until we meet
My nights will be a little colder
My days a little shorter
My heart will beat a little less rapid
Until we meet
I know that my arms will be empty
My mind hurting from the constant thought of you
Minutes will seem to be hours
Hours will seem to be months
Your beauty recedes,
Along with your greed,
The horizon is obstructed,
From all the negativity
you have constructed.
The once magnificent sunset,
Isn't even visible to your eyes,
A Haiku by Diocletian
A haiku written
by Diocletian sounds like a nail
against a chalkboard
All my words are confused
all my ideas are being misused
Lain out on the floor
With no collaborator
my projects are in vain.
They'll go unfinished , unchanged.
With no co star my movie is a flop
Cinematography isn't even a good prop
(I don't know how well this one came out, this is one of my personal poems so it's straight from the heart =])
What am I running from?, the thing I could never find,
The thing that would never come to me, not even
in my dreams, it's the thing that seems impossible to hold on to,
Can I be your shadow?
Can I catch all your tears?
Can I touch all your fears?
Can I be your shadow?
I am your best friend.
I will always be at your side.
I will cover you when you hide.
I will be your shadow...
I will fight by your side.
I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in...
“I Wonder As I Wander, As I Wander As I Wonder”
©2013 by M. Benjamin Vaughn I Abernethy, Esq.
-I wonder as I wander,
Below unseen things above,
I wander as I wonder,
Hating all that I once loved.
I wonder as I wander,
With a loaded Gun.
I wander as I wonder,
(here is one of my poems that most people find hard to understand but poems are for the reader to interpret :] so try to interpret it into what you think it means)
Could you be here and there at once but not be there at all? this place is so familiar but yet unknown to me, I walk...
The darkness lingers allover my skin, I am corrupted by a shadow of demise and now I ask will you be here when darkness falls?, will you be here when the world collapses on me, are you even here at all?
I push my hand through the dark searching for yours but it's no where to be found, your no...
I know, I know.
Much too soon to post another poem... but this one comes from the heart. Lately I've been thinking aout my life a lot, my disease, my parents death... It's been keeping me busy lately. I have a pretty rough life, even if I say so myself. This is the result of me throwing my...
I know no one really reads/comments on the,, I just gotta get this off my heart.
"I couldn't live without my mom."
Some would say.
But you just wait until that day.
I see what I see.
"Is it enough?" I question myself.
It's part of "Seeing".
Things I can touch, like a house
a trashcan, a fireplace, a tree
a bike, a boat, a spiderweb...
Letters on a piece of paper
We are the used,
You are the loved,
Aphrodite= Goddess of beauty
This poem is really old but I thought I'd post it because it seemed to catch my eye. Maybe not the best but still comment. =] Thanks!
With the view of a bird's,
A vital life lesson can be learned,
So we passed this place in another lifetime
So we passed this place and left it here to die
So I’m waiting here waiting for the right time
To stand up once and take to the sky
But you came along inside a pillcase bottle
You came along and said it was destiny
My instructor assigned us a poem in which we had to write in the writer's point of view, in more of a metaphorical and mysterious sense, not so much literal. So before I turn it in, I'm looking for a little more feedback. As always, it would be much appreciated and it will help me a lot. Thanks! ^^...
I made this in school... Thinking about someone...
The only one I want is you.
I've always looked around for your name.
On the sports list, for instance.
Are you on my team? Soccer? Turning? Swimming?
I hope so.
Hey peeps. I wrote these stream of poems a few days ago( I think sometime last week xD)
Well anyhoo please take your time and read these. :)
I wrote this for this boy right after i met him. I mean i was instantly taken with him. Hope you like it.
Joy and laughter
Eyes of gold,
hands that flow steadily over me
Bold and daring
Strong and caring
Hello, my pretties. I believe I've been gone from this section far too long. Please, enjoy the mind of a disturbed individual.
This is not to insult or offend anyone. It's just a joke. A very sick joke. If you are easily offended, don't read it.
'Twas the night before Christmas and...
Yep, title says it all. I made this poem for some one I truely love.
Comments and questions are always welcomed.
Message in a Bottle
By Thomas G.
My love, I hope this reaches you
though you are far away.
I'm standing on the beach with blue
Hold me close
Kiss away my tears
Hug me when i'm not there
Always be there for me
Your everything i've ever wanted
Everything my heart desires
I don't know how i lasted so long
Knowing you were here in my world
This here is my little thread where I'll put some poems of mine in. I hope you don't mind and feedbacks are alwasy welcome! No worries! Just tell me what's on your mind. Cause I'm not a little girl who would cry over bad critics ^.^
And I want to improve myself so some feedback would be really...
So close yet so far…
Just one call you’re with me
No matter how far your there in one call,
You’re always there for me baby to make me smile
Hearing your voice makes me happy and calm
When I see you call I’m filled with joy,
Just to hold you in my arms I wouldn’t let go
To see you, hold...
Umm, okay. So, I couldn't think of a name for this poem. Weirdly enough, it's another one about dreaming (though really different). Anyways, if anyone can think of a name, it's appreciated. Oh, and I came up with this poem and 2 am in the morning while listening to Edward's Lullaby (so, yes, it's...
