I love reading topics like this. I'm really going to have to sit down one day and read everything through. But so far I have to say I really like blearyeyedme person's poem that is like The Raven. Flows very nicely with the original poem I think! I have an Edgar Allen Poe inspired poem too so here it is. I don't write often but occasionally I'll throw a few wordlings down on paper....


I awoke one morning to find
I had lost my mind
A deep depression
Had been made in my pillow
From when the shadow thoughts came
And with their grey-gloved hands
Banished the sane

Suffocating, stifling, smothering barrages
of bleak thought
Deserve the blame
For they cut off the flow of reason
So the absurd had more room to play
They pranced and they danced
Until I knew they were true

"And why will you say I'm mad?" -my favorite line from The Tell-Tale Heart


And here is another poem cause I feel like it.

I shall never long for another
to be by my side
for I have my little spider
In my mind
Ready to catch
Ready to consume
Any malevolent musings
that dare to resume
Their blue fly buzz

And she never lets them go to waste
Actually, she has quite an insatiable taste
for those repulsive creatures
for those destructive thoughts
she'll catch them
in her glorious web
spun from all the tangles
in my head
She is a busy little eight-legged soul,
Always spinning away
and i do enjoy her company
to the utmost of my being
so i'm glad to find
I have my mind
with me each and every day
for my little spider prefers to weave
in the attic

I didn't know you write prose! :D I've enjoyed it very much!

Hm... Again.... :lol: It's like Nightwish... Just wanted to write sth else...

"Empty cradle"

Your voice is calling me now
Where are you, my poor child?
Who took you from my arms?
Who resisted your charms?

Now I'm running this way
I'm afraid to be late
I am the mother of the heir
I am the Queen of this day

I feel you're far away
Not in this gloomy day
How will my world live
Without your decrees?

Through forest and hills
I'm running to you, my dear
My helpers are deer
And eagles high above

Please, help me with your love
With your heat and you heart
Don't tie up my hope
I won't bear it... I won't...

Very nice! :D

Here's a little interpretive I wrote based on "When A Dead Man Walks".


I lie awake in bed, watching the time drag by. The dark skies slowly turn from violet to rose. The stars flicker out and moon drifts off to sleep. It's been three days like this, I don't know how much longer I can go on. Each night I stay up with anticipation of the coming morrow. Lately there is nothing I can do to keep from going insane.

They're coming for me. I don't know when, but it can't be long now. Just one more day is all I want...just one. But I can't. There's nothing left for me now.

I wish this never happened, but I can do nothing to avoid the inevitable. I messed up and there was no hiding it. I tried so hard to make an excuse, but there was no denying it. Why did I listen to them? They said everything would be fine. But I can still hear the screaming, the painful screaming that's driving me insane. Get out of my head!!

The clicking sound of a key in my door draws me back to reality. Each click ringing like thunder to me, warning me of my fate. Each click counting down my time until it's over. The final hours have been planned for me, and there's no looking back. The time has come.

I'm taken from my room much like an animal from it's cage. They show no respect, and have an air of complete indifference. If they only knew.

Walking down the hall, I glance out the window. The sun has risen and I can hear birds singing in the distance. The world is moving on, completely unware.

As my last request, I asked for a picture of my wife. She's sitting on some drift wood under a small overhanging bluff. She is surrounded by white sands that give their soft aura to her. The sun setting over the ocean gave a warm glow to the waves; their sparkle reflecting in her eyes. A forced smile, like in all the photographs I took of her. She hated having her picture taken...

Here's a poem I wrote. I've always felt strongly abu tthe destruction people are doing to the world, so I wrote a poem about it.

Gaia

She watches the sunset each day,
waiting for the rising moon.
As the burning fires dance under the clouds,
she ponders everything.
With the world beneath her,
the soft humming music that comes from the indigo skies.
With the magic she posesses, she could renew everything;
but sadly she doesn't.
She leaves it up to us to save her child that we are rapidly ruining.
Only to sit back and watch the torments of hatred brewing steadily beside her.

here's some lyrics i wrote not too long ago called 'suicide lullaby':

~Suicide Lullaby~

i put on a smile for you today
as fake as this life i lead
i sit up straight for you
and try to be what you need
a brand, a scar, a friend
as on my pain you feed
does it make you feel love again
do you com alive when i bleed

fuck me one more time
before we say good bye
(forever and ever love)
rape my fragile soul
and quietly i will die
(close my eyes and do not wake)
spread my tattered wings
i'm learning how to fly
(away from all i keep inside)
asphyxiation in your arms
and you will sing to me
my suicide lullaby...
(don't cry)

in the shards i lay so still
watch me fall don't try to save me
shed the tears i left behind
among the peiced up memories
the words aren't that simple now
trapped inside like misery
it's just a little secret now
with my last breath i scream

(chorus)

i can't take this anymore
you touch the scars
be careful with my heart
burry my face in the pillow once more
and i try to take my life away

(chorus)

fuck me one more time
rape my fragile soul
spread my tattered wings
and sing to me
my suicide lullaby...
suicide lullaby...
don't cry...

that's good.

There’s no Music

In the end there’s no music,
In the end there’s no song.
People just expect for you to simply go along.

There’s lullabies at bedtime,
There’s lullabies at dawn.
But there’s none when your life is a dried and crinkled lawn.

People may be the reason,
People may be the cause.
It’s their fault that your life is stuck forever on pause.

It might as well be your fault,
It might as well be you.
Yet taking your own life is an awful thing to do.

Suffocated forever,
Suffocated for now.
Killing out the music and you managed it somehow.


I wrote that a while ago...

@cri, yes, i do write occasionally! i'm glad you enjoyed reading my ramblings. I read all of your poems too and they are really good! I liked "While you were away..." the best. And "To My Muse" is a heartwrenching one. You express things in English better than most people who grew up with the language do!

here's another one of my poems!

I gauge my hand against the stars
Seeking the width of my soul
Some would wish for a diadem
Set with each luminous star
To signify their soul's worth
Other's, a gown of shimmering star-studded cloth
In such an infinite array
The sky itself would have to fall
But what I would desire most of all,
From the realm innumerable hands higher
Would be a cloak of modest proportions
Made from when the moon
Has taken her metallic shears of silver light
And snipped each star out
To leave a black satin night
Scattered with countless holes
So the light within might begin to glow
And its humblie luminance mayhap show
Those others
The true measure
Of my soul

Stupid French Movies

I spend what seems a lifetime building and planning,
waiting and watching,
to find the one I was meant for.

Kismet.

Which is harder, to have lost a love you thought was true,
or to have a love you ache for never happen?

Will this cycle ever break?

I want her.
I want the idea of her.
I want all of her.

I cycle between hope and fear and love and desire.
From telling myself "Never Again!" to whispering "Never say never."

A long time ago I would never have let myself go this far.
I would have ended it before it started.
But you'll never win the lottery if you don't buy a ticket, right?
Amelie taught me that.
Stupid French movies...

If that made no sense it's because I just made most of it up...random thoughts...sorry.

Here's another recent one of mine....don't necessarily think its my best work by any means, but what the hell....


Never Knew


I never knew
Where your steps would lead
Did not expect
What you found in me
Led me to a place
I never dreamed could be

You exposed a side of me
I never knew existed
You drew out a part of me
I’d hidden from the world
You filled a hole in me
I never knew was empty

I never knew
Where your steps would lead
Did not expect
What you found in me
Led me to a place
I never thought I’d see

You found a place in me
Even I had never seen
You awoke a part of me
I thought forever gone
You soothed a fear in me
I never could break through

I never knew
Where your steps would lead
Did not expect
What you found in me
Led me to a place
I never want to leave

You took a piece of me
That forever will be yours

Sliding into slumber
Softest light keeps fading
Warm and quiet and still
Breathing drifting waiting
Here alone and standing
Soaring with the clouds
The great and misty everworld
And the arms of sleep surround
Walking into twilight
An unchanging wind
Elegant stars of might
Heading towards the end
Eternal rest be with you
Arms of God surround you
Kiss of serenity touch you
This is a lament for the dead


and...


Insanity slowly seeps in
As I think of you
I would give anything
Just to be near you
I feel imprisoned
My heart is aching for you
But I am trapped in this cage
As the insanity seeps in

Insanity slowly seeps in
As I think of your face
I would do anything
Just to see your face
I feel empty without your love
I am lost without you
But I am trapped in this cage
And insanity is seeping in

I would give my life
If only I could hear you
I would give my life
If only I were near you
I begin to doubt
If can I do without
I need you here with me


and...


I have heard a song on the wind
A quiet, unspoken death
It surrounds me and consumes me
I can taste it in my breath

The sea of words fills my lungs
I now speak its’ ugliness
The sharp phrases cut like swords
This villain I now possess

Visions of undoing
Flash through my memory
This poisonous venom
That runs through my veins

Keep away from me
Now I bring sadness and loneliness
This morose beauty causes pain
I’ll give It to you in a kiss

This came to me tonight....iI guess its something about our insignificance in the greater scope of the universe....


Empires of Dust

Everything we've built
Castles made of sand
An empire of dust
Moments will it stand

There's no permanence
It's all a fading dream
We are but a fleeting thought
Within the greater scheme

Nothing stands forever
None escape their end
World moves ever onward
Leaving all behind

Being fades to memory
Memories slip to dreams
Dreams crumble to dust
Scattered on winds of time
