Judgment is passed by those who fear,
Acceptance is given by those who love.
Hatred for the colored, the feminine, the queer
Is battled by warriors of the dove.
Rise against the high tide of hatred,
In favor of a kinship born of tolerance.
To cure a nation, a world, a species blighted
Hummingbird heart beating so fast
Tasting the fear, smelling the hate
Watch, little bird, for the predator
Don't get trapped in the illusion
Fly fast, my dear, do not look back
Nothing is back there but despair
Wings scorched and tainted
My mind is so numb,
I crave to busy it with words
Your world will spin
With endless possibilities
Are you against the flow
Or do you ride it with ease?
What will you do
Who will you be?
Will you conquer the mountain?
There he stood
Six feet nothing
Still and quiet
Not starting or stopping
From a distance
She is the silhouette of Artemis
With eyes as bright as stars,
A shining example of young promise
Espied with kindness from afar
A fold of her nocturne hair
Reveals the thought-strings of dreams,
With but a single porcelain glare
She tears ambiguity by the seams
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
I write poems quite often so, I decided I'd start a thread to share some of them with you guys. SO... here we go.
This poem is one I wrote after a series of events beyond my control that caused me and my ex to split up...
"Dereliction of the tormented"
A man imprisoned in an asylum of...
Here we are two strangers
Meeting for the hundredth time
Staring at each other
Through thick layers of grime
You remind me of a girl
I knew so long ago
Who vanished with the wind
To travel where it blows
My life isn't anything interesting. I watch birds fly with freedom
The foxes steal fruit with cunning belief...
I want to fly with proud wings like the black swallowtail butterfly
Don't say it's lame, I want that kind of life...
I want to become a black swallowtail butterfly and be loved...
Let go of the sanguine feeling
Into the winds so lost,
The ends and their costs
With pensive senses arrayed,
Songless and careening
Begging the forces be swayed
Cut off from reality.
Tangled in ropes.
Don’t want to break free.
Giving up all hopes.
Swallows the sun
My heart so gloom
Where is the fun?
Just as a reminder:
Line 1 is 5 syllables
Line 2 is 7 syllables
Line 3 is 5 syllables
This one is about a character in Naruto. Can anyone guess who I'm talking about?
Sand-skinned boy, we fear
He can kill us with one glance
We won't stand a chance.
i just get reminded that i didn't post alove poem here on v-day..
i am doing it now...
Love me, i beg thee..
i will love you more, you'll see
more than before, if you ask me
i will love thee
more than i love me...
Well here is a quick Ryhme I made in my English class thought it turned out pretty good. I know it's not perfect but I thought I'd post it to see what everyone thinks.
P.S. sorry if there is a missing "k" somewhere my keyboard got sticky over the summer :p
Along the road a lost reading...
I hate you, my beloved.
For the fact that i'm in chains because of you,
That I have no more free will.
That I'm in constant pain when I'm away from you,
That I've no life without you.
And that you'd never let me go,
But most of all, I hate you because
I'd die for you.
Fighting, scratching, teeth bared, body bloodied.
We are the warriors, the soldiers of life.
Our weapons are rusty, and our clothes soiled.
We will never know peace, only strife.
The only goal is to survive and pass on our legacy:
To have lived in world which treated us so cruelly.
Another day at work
Casts me now to shore
You are waiting for me
A horseshoe on the door
But it seems to nail is weak
It twists to face the floor
My knees begin to weaken
Your moan is burning soft
Intro: Hey my friends. After being showed to me what Haiku is and some little search afterwards I’ll try that form of Japanese poetry for the first time.
Haiku combines “three different lines in a noticeable grammatical break”. That break, which is called kireji in romanji, “is often replaced...
My heart for long cries
For my son’s death in my heart grew
His emotions fumbling to a stew
Being cooked as by a navy crew
Making me grow has from new
My heart for long cries
Between fear and lies
My worries trying not to rise
But it’s impossible: my heart dies!
I left your side.
When it all went down.
Baby, I know you cried.
I had to leave this town.
When our bodies where close.
I couldn't hold you, I couldn't touch.
As you threw of your clothes.
Time stopped, and it became to much.
While the moon glows with her shy emollience
I bask in the rays which wish to reach me,
Their numina gives off the sense of clairvoyance
As I sit beneath this mostly metaphorical tree
Another few moments could reveal the harbinger
Even when the inevitable is the impossible,
I await the...
Used to be a fighter.
She ran her hands through my hair.
Caressing my chest.
She was the only one to care.
Floating happily in her breast.
So that it makes a little more sense, I'll tell you that this one was inspired by a picture of two Kayan women with neck rings, one older and one a bit younger, smiling happily, and the older one was laying on the younger one's shoulder.
Years ago, when I was young
She would help to ease the...
This is by far the longest poem I've ever written and also my attempt at a faerie tale of sorts. I turned it into a short story later but this was how it began its life. Hope you like it, despite being super mega long! :D
A princess sits at her window
Watching the prince below
She watches his...

Love is the greatest feeling,
Love is like a play,
Love is what I feel for you,
Each and every day,
Love is like a smile,
Love is like a song,
Love is a great emotion,
That keeps us going strong,
I love you with my heart,
My body and my soul,
She's holding onto him
She's holding him tight.
He's scared to loose her.
but her hearts out of sight.
She belongs to someone else.
And he'll never know,
How much he meant to her.
His feelings, he couldn't show.
He couldn't understand her.
Miles apart inside,
Rain drops washing away in the gutter.
Hearts sinking deep in loneliness
People are hypocrites you can hear it in the words they utter.
How can I believe in your last kiss
Sunbeams throwing me around.
Worn out shoes, lifting me up.
While earth keeps spinning round and round
Drowning in the current of my hot tub
She sucks my last euro’s out of my soul
Trying to get close to her, so close
Trying to fix the hole
