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.
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...
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....
Whatís Going On?
This is to be your one stop thread to whatís currently going on in the forum. Links to writing challenges, contests, and featured stories, both past and present, will all be located here. Other fun activities may find their way into being linked here as well, so make sure you...
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.
when we were young
you introduced yourself to me
you wanted to be friends with me
"we're friends, right??"
A wind blows profoundly...
Two people sit on a bench.
How are these two peeps related?
It can't be flat-out told!
That's not how poems work!
A wind blows profoundly...
A man feels a certain emotion.
He compares it to pancakes.
Ones that his mother makes.
its my first try and well im not good with poems so.. here ya go..
Game of Life and Death
Life is just another pointless Game
No goal to aim
A game you’ll have to play
Betting on a price you’ll pay
A thread for poetry,
of classic eastern form
haiku only please.
A lens sees
reflections of life.
where i live
where i suffer
a wish in the form of thoughts
a yearning that can never be subsided
A eagle returns
Will always burn
For why do you fly
Because im an eagle in the sky
Somewhere down below
I can go were i know
The wind in my face is maid out a case
eat some apple crumble
Up so high
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
You are the one who is dressing in sweet
The more i taste you
You are something to eat
You look okay but she says horay!
As I look upon the green prairies
My eyes get filled with tears.
Centaurs , Minotaurs and faeries
Yet suddenly it all disappears.
Such a beautiful fantasy
Exists only inside my head,
Uhm, hi. I know I haven't really posted or anything but we have to do this thing for my health class that requires us to write a poem. On one side, the person is mentally ill in some way. On the other, they are normal. Just want to know a couple opinions. Thank you in advance. ><
I will love you,
and never forget you,
especially the day,
the day we met,
I am willing to give myself,
everything to you,
my heart, my soul,
all of it for you,
I'm yours to keep,
I just want you to be happy,

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
here goes another poem i made years ago (2 years i think), i hope this one sounds and feels better than the first i posted here... i hope you'll like this...
The Game Of Life
A life , once full of happiness;
All fades in complete darkness;
The control she had with her destiny;
Is now in...
This poem sucked so I deleted it :}
This is pretty rough, so please be nice. I was trying to use more visuals than I usually do.
I catch a glimpse of her face
As beautiful as pale moonglass
And my breath catches.
The atoms in my brain
Begin to collide
The furnace in my chest rages
Hot as a sun.
A river flows through my...
Little stuborn girl,
Yet small and adorable.
Twinkles everyones heart,
"Stupid!" is what she yells out,
She clings to her most beloved ones,
And begs for attention, most of the time.
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...
This isn't really a poem; it's more like a prose. But I felt that it flowed sort of like a poem. Also, this is based in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. I've formatted it so it looks more like a poem. It's probably not very good. Oh well.
I am the light that hides in shadow.
I am the guide,...
okay, here's a poem I wrote today. Please tell me what you think, and what could be done better. ^_^ thanks -Tsuki **************************************
I will hold you in my heart,
and say words of a prayer.
Until we meet again.
I will rip out all my soul,
and be an empty...
I wish you were here.
I wish you were night.
Cuz' life without you,
Is just too dark.
I wish you were here,
To dance in my heart.
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...
Blue Butterflies in the Rain
Blue like the ocean,
Blue like the sky,
Blue like the glow in a new born's eyes.
Blue like a blueberry,
Blue like my heart,
I stand in the rain catching Blue Butterflies.
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...
In your dreams,magical thoughts...All things are real unless you dream they're not.In your dreams,love is the plot carried on wings of hope.Each of our souls intertwine, when we do.Instantly we see it the time to grow and be it when everything is pinned on a hope.Let rise the dreams of your...
This is really old. I found it. Thought I'd share.
I carved a cross into my arm the other day,
I tried to show you, but you just looked away.
Iím trying to show you I need help,
But you just donít understand how I felt.
Cut off from reality.
Tangled in ropes.
Donít want to break free.
Giving up all hopes.
Swallows the sun
My heart so gloom
Where is the fun?
well, i posted another poem a while back and got some good reviews on it. if you're new to me, it's called "Cold".
(sorry, it's a little long)
Life: Desire and Dissatisfaction
I search for my life.
Whether in my home with family
or in the virtual world
