Official Poetry thread VOL. pour out your soul.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I don't ever remember there being a thread solely dedicated to poetry.

This thread is open to anything for example:

-You can post your personal poetry/lyrics
-Your favorite poem
-Really anything that has to do with poetry.

I was just kicking back at this chill spot near my campus, writing some poems and I realized that I never seen a thread to share poems on NT. I hope y'all can contribute, I have some poems I wrote way back in the day when I dated this girl. I'll try to pick some out and post some. Really just share anything you like.

Wrote these a week or two back

It was

We had nothing
We had something

It was May
I failed to woo you

It was June
I realized I missed you

It was August
Your boo left you

It was September
I fell for you

We had the sun
Shine through us

We had the moon
Guide us

Our time together
Soothed our souls
Our fears dissipated
Leading us through the tolls

It was October
I felt you slip away

It was October
I wished for another day

Nothing mattered
My mind was battered

We had something
Without you
I had nothing


In the Hills

I walked through
The wet grass
Washing the soles
Of my sneakers
Wiping away
The steps we took together

I ran away from you
Just to forget you
Just to never hate you
But I couldn't escape you

You impacted my life
But you wouldn't put down my knife
You insisted on carving
Your initials in my spine

We walked for hours
We laughed when we realized
It was half past five
We both knew we were on borrowed time
But we thought nothing of it

You inspired me
To scream in jubilee
I lifted myself
To a level
I didn't know
I could reach

Your lips captivated me
Stop and go
Stop and go
Your legs wrapped around me

I never wanted you to let go

I have to live without you
In the hills
Wondering if we'll ever
Experience that weekend
Ever again


Understood

It wasn't my wish
But I understood it

We weren't supposed to go
Where we went
We never got
Where we could've gone

But we went far enough
To know the burning
Felt in Saigon

Our time together
Brought us to a place
You were too innocent
To understand

Jaded and abused
Malnourished and confused
I never wanted you
To slip away and leave

But I understood
Why
You had to
Jump out of the plane
Before we landed

You meant a lot to me
You always will

You were the princess cut diamond
I never thought I would find

One day I hope to see you again
Flushed and out of breath
Pushed
To your hot point

I never wanted you to leave
But it's understood


This Time

When it makes sense
It'll happen again

Life is cyclical
We went through
Our first two acts
Odds are
We'll have a third

Where it goes
We'll see
It doesn't matter
But this time
I'll at least
Cherish each moment
As its last

I was complacent
It was unexpected
I wasn't ready
I sunk in the deep end
I did it to myself

But this time
It'll be as special as it once was
The electricity will
Never be forgotten
And when the time comes
We'll both be ready

This time

It'll be easier to deal with
It won't come as a surprise
It'll be cherished forever


Without You

Common sense says
I should be upset I met you

I fell for you
And you left me
On the side of the highway
In the middle of Las Vegas
Without water or sunscreen

But without you
I never would've experienced
What it's like to live
In a world
Full of chaos and love

Without you
I wouldn't have found
The discipline and patience
Needed to achieve
Greatness

I failed for years
I repeated the same mistakes
I gave up hope
But you appeared

Without you
I wouldn't have been inspired
I wouldn't have figured out
How to turn lead into gold

I will always care for you
Because without you
I would be a miserable bloke

Damn dude, I like that. So much emotion. I wrote this one tonight in about an hour, which is weird. Because for the longest time I haven't been inspired to write anything, but this kinda just came to me.

Behold, beauty is there
Within every bare water drop that falls
From the sky
And even while you try to question why
It still exists
It exists, and persists through your emotion
To have the courage to create an entire ocean
It is within the wretched weed
That somehow, breaks through cracks
To feed from the sunlight above
It exists, whether you hate, or you love
Beauty is there
It manifests itself as a reminder
For you to stay strong
And for you to look back and see how far you've come along
Whether you notice it or not,
Beauty will always be waiting,
To catch your glimpsing eye
To give reason to your cries,
To be the reason to your whys
Never forget,
That beauty truly cares
Beauty is everywhere
Behold, beauty is there

Thanks dude, yeah wrote it in an emotional mind state laugh.gif

I like that poem. Too often we overlook how easy it is to find beauty, even in the ugliest, simplest things.
