    So... going through life this way and that and not being able to work on my stories, I have decided to attempt at kind of like a free verse poetry... once more. *coughs*

    This first one I wrote while I was at work just a couple of days ago. Just some questions came in mind, and then I wrote it all down on receipt paper in between rush hours and dead hours.


    How

    How do you tape together a shattered heart?
    How do you wrap a blanket around a frozen soul?
    How do you tell all your fears to part?
    How do we find the courage to let it all go?

    How do you be proud for how much you've grown?
    How do you stand in darkness and be reserved?
    How do you whisper in your head, "It's okay to be alone"?
    How do you then embrace the love you deserve?

    So many questions my, dear child
    So many wishes that you desire.
    Be patient and let time tell you how,
    How to heal, mend, how beautiful you are to you
    And in time, how to save someone else

    It must be said,I really loved this poem.
    And I generally hate poetry.
    But the way it was said out made it both easy to read,and very nice to look at.
    The sounds,and just the general flow was great,and what the poem was actually about...
    It was just beautiful. From the first two stanzas,to the change of theme in the last...
    Oh I just loved it. Wonderful work my dear,please do keep it up <3

    Thank you you two. ^^ I really didn't expect anyone to leave any comments, so sorry if this is a bit late. :'D

    I wrote another poem, more like a narrative one, for my college class. I was suppose to write something for little kids to read, and make a book with it. I made pictures with it (drew with crayons!), but sadly I didn't have enough time to scan it in my computer before I had to hand it in. :(

    But this is what I wrote, so I hope you'll like it... Just a heads up, it's a bit long. I suck at shortening stories. ><

    I also posted this in the Wonderland event going on. ^^;

    Here we go:


    A Valentine for Princess Roo

    Once in the kingdom of Ellakazoo
    There lived a princess named Princess Roo.
    Princess Roo was of the snobbish sort
    After all, she was respected by the royal court.
    With fluffy dresses, hair-do piled high
    She had many friends, that was no lie.

    Those of high class, she looked to with awe
    But those grimy servants, she hoped she never saw.
    To Princess Roo, they were gross, icky, and slime
    She much preferred her fancy friends who sparkled and shined.
    But oh despite the warnings from his kin
    There was one servant boy who looked at the princess and grinned.

    He was skinny and tall, a shabby chap
    He mostly worked in the kitchen, making royal snacks.
    His ears were enormous; he had a gap in his teeth
    He was the awkward duck, and his mom called him Keith.

    Now Keith had his heart on the princess of Ellakazoo
    Even though his brother Kurt said, “That will never do.”
    Although she turned her nose up at him in spite
    Keith saw her as very sweet and polite

    Keith said, “How I do hope that someday she’ll see
    That there’s so much more to me.
    I am not all grime and slime
    Everyone after all can be divine.”

    And then he got his wish one day,
    When Princess Roo was caught in the rain
    Her fluffy dress was soon speckled in mud
    And her up-do hair became a dud
    Her fantastic friends scattered and scrammed
    For Princess Roo was the ugliest girl in the land

    When Princess Roo fell on the floor and began to cry
    Poor Servant Keith came over and gave her a tissue to dry her eyes
    The princess did not turn her nose up at him this time
    She only sat there and sighed

    Then Keith remember something he made
    And pulled out something that had a pink shade.
    He gave it to Princess Roo who sniffed and just stared
    “For you,” he said. “It’s something I want to share.”
    The princess took the work of art
    And unfolded it to find it was shaped like a heart.

    Her cheeks were red as she saw the words
    Which made her giggle and her spirit sing like birds
    On the heart was written a poem
    And Keith’s cheesy words were shown.

    “Roses are red, violets are blue,
    Rich, poor, mean, nice, or a bore,
    I’ll always like you for you,
    You make my heart soar.”

    From that day forth, Princess Roo saw something new
    And the love for all different kinds of people within her grew
    For she learned that even slimey servants shined
    And everyone was beautiful in someone else’s eyes


    ~THE END~

    Written on the spur of feelings... Eh, not really much to explain here.

    ~Unknown Title for This One~

    My hand presses against the glass
    Everything is so abstract
    The world is out of reach
    Blocked by this thick sheet

    The sun shines, no light enters in
    Grass and trees flourish, I cannot touch
    People pass on by, deaf to my voice
    I see what it’s like, and cringe
    I have lost all hope and trust
    I can’t make my own choice

    Pounding it, punching it, the window stays still
    To wait, to see it unfold without you kills
    Days go on, I’m not there
    Time to say hello to my old friend Despair…

    Warmth, on the other side of the glass
    I open my eyes and see
    Another hand pressed against my own
    So foreign, unreal, something only in the past
    But he’s there, staring right at me
    In his eyes, I see he knows

    “Do you want to be free?†his lips move
    Was this true? Or was it cruel?
    The sheet began to crack, part, and disappear
    Leaving me to make the choice I feared

    Freedom

    These two poems I wrote to begin a couple of private Roleplays off this site. I actually really liked them, even though I made them up on the spot and some of them are really sloppy.

    This first one was for a Kingdom Hearts themed RP. Very short... but yeah. ^^ I don't really have a tilte for it.

    Memories are scattered but near, alas all is not what it seems to appear
    Broken hearts and shattered dreams, come together once more and sing
    For within the darkness lies the brightest light, so please take my hand and hold on tight


    And this one was written for my character who is a condemned witch, forced to wander the modern world. Also, I really don't have a title for this one either.

    Stars so dim but so shine, twinkle, stay, and never die
    So I am a wanderer of stars, so I am a nomad of dreams
    To children, the nightmares of the waking dead
    To shadows, the love that only the pure can see

    Stars so dim but so shine, twinkle, stay, and never die
    So I am a wanderer of stars, so I am a nomad of dreams
    Be free, so the wind will sing
    Be still, and see what is meant to be

    Hey guys! Finally back into poetry writing. Woot. I found this one I made a while ago in my old Deviantart, and if I remember right... This was the time I was having difficulty with a "friendship". It's so cool going back and reading it now, because it's like... I was talking to my future self, me. If that makes any sense... So enjoy, and yeah. xD I thiiiink I didn't post this before... Hopefully I didn't. >> But yeah, have fun reading it.


    The Way It's Suppose to Be

    Life's vibrant golden days
    Stagnant now, peel, and fade;
    Light once there, but is no more
    Darkness once never here, wraps around the soul
    Coldness, bitterness, pierces the very core
    Watch me as I fall further in my own sinkhole.

    To you, I am all but gone
    And maybe I am
    You snuffed the life I had left inside
    Now there is no choice but to hide
    No hope for this wretched pawn
    I am nothing more than a hopeless sham

    But look, something is ahead
    Maybe after all I'm not left for dead.
    A soft voice calls, a hand reaches forward
    "No!" came my scream, "I can't!"
    But it was my hour, a voice answered
    I could only listen to the descant

    A warmth envelopes the ice
    Tears that shattered the world all but dry
    Arms hold me tightly, there is no price
    Something tells me to say goodbye
    I am wonderful, brilliant, bright
    Something tells me this is right

    This is the way to be

    Wrote this on the spur of the moment. Today was kind of a hard day for me. Been battling myself since I woke up this morning to face the day. Not looking for pity or anything, just sharing my thoughts. This one isn't fluffy and cute, so just a heads up. If you don't like depressing things, don't read it.Spoiler tags are not working right for me, so just don't scroll down if you don't wish to read it.











    The Disease of Us

    The disease resides within the heart
    Or the head, or both, and never departs
    Its whispers, whispers never cease
    Clattering, clattering and not at all at peace

    Silence in the sanctuary penetrates the core
    Of this virus and leaves pour souls sore
    Distractions of thoughts, melodies, and worlds beyond ours
    Destroys, infects, feeds the ailment all hours

    Weakened, soon can go on no more
    Nothing seems real there is no door
    To lead out of this nightmare of suffering
    And pain, cluttering, cluttering

    There is no end to this it seems
    No cure to reach for or vaccines
    Shadows are thick and tight
    Obscuring the view from the light

    Tears are cold and fresh
    Limbs, ensnared by a mesh
    The reality is thwarted, cries unheard
    No matter how loud they scream, still scourged

    Victims it claims are those who are lost
    Who stand in crowds and feel oft
    That they do not belong to this place
    Or anywhere and are heavy with weights

    No one to trust, or to blame
    For this thing puts sufferers to shame
    The culprit of this forever plague is Loneliness
    Of this sickening, sickening illness

    I'm glad you didn't follow the rules of rhyme as religiously as some poets do; you held on to a certain kind of freedom and it was obviously a commendable choice. Great poem; I enjoyed reading it, heavy theme notwithstanding.

    Sorry for the delayed thank you, but thank you very much for commenting on my poem. Made me feel speckled for a bit. ^^

    This is a poem I wrote based on my insomnia and oversleeping. Depression does funny things to you, and not giving you peace at all is just one of the things it does. If I'm awake, I cry and feel horrible. If I'm asleep, I have nightmares and bad dreams. And it's just a constant struggle... so here we go.

    My Weary Head

    There’s a time of peace and rest, they all say
    But my theory might make them insane
    For when I close my eyes and dream
    It’s shadows and sorrows as far as I can see

    Moonlight, sunlight, nightlight, flashlight, no light
    It doesn’t matter; the tears roll and the brain will fight
    Monsters love my closet, and ghouls devour my visions
    The fear, the depression, and the anxiety are the provisions

    Night falls, and let the games begin
    Morning comes, seeing is a sin
    Oh will it just let me rest?
    But I think it’ll never hear my protests

    Thank you Tummer and Styx for the comments, much appreciated.

    This one is a crap poem I wrote on the spot. Oooooh, Maka is so dramatic isn't she? Very much so.

    I'm Not What I Seem To Be

    There once was a girl who was all smiles and flowers
    She gave all she had and made friends with all around her
    Her giggles filled the world with happiness and love
    Her smile was soft, just like the wings of a dove

    And then one fateful day, everything changed
    The girl found sorrow and became dismayed
    Her joyful realm was all but a dream
    And really it was was a nightmare it seemed

    Hope and laughter had long faded away
    Hands reach out, some slapped, some were in the way
    No one to trust, no one to blame
    Save herself, she was really ashamed

    You wouldn't believe it if I said the girl was me
    Who hides under a smile, and pretends nothing is as bad as it seems
    You may say I complained and I asked for this
    You may be right, and I deserve it

    There are days I just wished I faded away
    Like in those video games, and I'm not afraid
    There's no way I can describe the anguish going on inside of me
    Because no words can touch on the hell that I feel and see

    So take my advice and stay away from this girl
    I locked myself away, many of my "friends" became gnarled
    You'll only get wounded if you get too close
    To the one who is not all sunshine and roses

    Welcome to My Insanity

    I feel rather insane in the brain
    Perhaps it’s because I played too many charades
    Whatever the case may be, I don’t know what’s up or down
    I dunno the sights or the people around

    I’ve gone nuts, I’ve gone bonkers
    My parents think I’m some wonker
    I’m staying up late hours in the night
    Never getting the rest I need, oh sigh, sleep tight

    Alone fighting with this monster in my head
    “I’m a demon child,and mad woman” it said
    Can I speak? No, no more
    Just use the blade until the skin grows sore

    My lips are sealed shut
    I must play as the puck
    To be submissive, yes, that is what the Good Lord said dear
    When I say no, then comes the worse fears

    I’m not the angel child you envisioned me to be
    When you had the chance, you should have disposed of me
    Now you have this THING running around
    And maybe it should probably drown

    “Excuses, excuses and foul play!” they scream
    “She is not all what she seems!”
    “Off with her head, no more we’ll wait!”
    “Plunge her in the darkness, it’s what she can take.”

    I scream silence and there is none
    I sit and wait, there will no more be sun
    No one is the culprit but me
    Pity, woe, don’t look at her and see

    Cheshire smile, everything is fine
    No matter the swirls of anger, come sit and dine
    A fake, coward, ashamed
    No one to point at or to blame

    “Guilty, however. Guilty is what she is!”
    Scorns and fingers, oh I’m such a sin
    And thus beings the cycle again
    And then they wonder why she pouts and never grins

    “A parable, a parable,” she’ll say
    “To those who do not understand my ways.”
    Then she rests and no words come
    Then others begin to ponder “What have we done?”

    “Nothing, nothing,” cries one
    “Everything, everything” says she and runs
    For her mind is like a maze
    Guess the riddles, and it’ll leave her amazed

    All I can really say is wow. You have a way with words and know how to tell a story with them well done.

    The Curse of Insomnia And Sleep

    Sleep now, it says
    Stay awake, the other one tries
    To close my eyes and go many different ways
    Or to stare, think too much, and sigh

    The eyes are heavy, spirits are dancing
    The heart aches, shadows are prancing
    Thoughts cannot be explained
    Patterns, words, ideas seem the same

    Croak, goes the voice
    Gestures are unseen
    Silence seems to be the only choice
    As films of thoughts begin to lose their sheen

    Who Is To Tell You So?

    Society is spinning
    You keep on grinning
    Rules die
    But you're alive

    Breaths whisper who is right
    And then they sneer who is not
    There you are, standing in the light
    Seemingly they cannot hurt you, they cannot

    Be skinny, be fat
    Be boring, be a gnat
    Be sad, be cheerful
    Be yourself, be not fearful

    Words are just words, you know?
    Labels will be labels, so what?
    Give them your best, give them a show
    Keep your head high, never leave the door shut
