OK all you aspiring poets out there, let's see some of your work. I can't say I'm any good, so I'll torture you with one of mine:

Almost

Almost is a turnon. Our bodies almost touching. Our lips almost kissing. Your mouth moving over my skin, breathing on me. Our skin never touches but your breath moves across my neck, sliding over my sweat, making my ears tingle.

But almost is also the same as not quite. As we're not quite the same person. And our differences collide, blocking your sweet breath from its movement.

Almost is the thing that just might happen, as well. You tell me maybe but are afraid of being hurt.

Almost is what hurts.

I liked your poem a lot, it certainly wasn't "torture" (believe me, some online stuff I've read IS...:P)

This thread will really take off, I look forward to reading (and maybe building up the courage to post) peoples' poetry :)

I once wrote an ode to ham sandwiches.

I don't even like ham that much.

I heard a song by a guy who did a parody of the Type O Negative song "In Praise of Baccus" and called it "In Praise of Sammich" I heard a few times and could never find it again but it was possibly the greatest thing I've ever heard. It had something about ham in there so I guess in a way, it to is an ode to ham sandwiches.

@SereneSerpentine, nice to see "Visions of a friend" have a happy ending (I did read that correctly, right?). I have a bad habit of ONLY writing when I'm down so most things are dark.

I'm so angry
Just let me die
Get me off
This emotional high.

I'm so mad
Want to kill
Adrenaline rush
It'd be a thrill.

Short and sweet
Do it fast
Or nice and slow
Make it last.

Take this rope
Make a noose
Tie it tight
Don't make it loose.

Hang me up
And take the chair
Then turn and leave
Don't stop and stare.

On second thought
That'd be no fun
Forget the rope
Grab a gun.

Take an aim
Don't start to doubt
One good shot
Make it count.

If that's too much
Take this knife
Slit my throat
Take my life.

Tears of rage
Gritting teeth
I hate myself
With disbelief.

Well, maybe you are going to be the next Jello Biafra. He can rant for quite a while...

@Serene - I dug the last one the most... the beat of that one is the same as an improptu piece I did called "Red Semen". I wont go into details...

Here's one I did a while ago, the only one I have on the computer:

A Broken Promise

In concordance with trivial being
Resolution through absolution,
Destitution an absurdity people are taught to fear
A question is raised
Intellectualism phased
Daring to think that value of a value can be biased
on escutcheon of it’s self
An epistemological nightmare
Following dysfunction of a virginal form
Lending words to others that indicate
Immoral depravity of yours and yours alone

Of postulation such as this
Only arrogance or aggravation could prove as bliss
So three shots of traditional redemptive
Red herring glide through darkness
But of three shots
Three marks are missed

A broken promise such as this
Conveys hidden truth
A broken promise such as this
Proves absence of propaganda ignorantly deemed as proof
A broken promise such as this
Sheds light on dark thought that often maims the brain
Regression or digression,
Call it what you will
Resurgence of early childhood in following absence of fear
In our soon-to-be convalescent minds
Nothing stands as sacred
No deity bears a name
Though every forgotten moment remains as mystery
With a broken promise such as this

Crawling back into reliquary
Upholding standards of hypocrisy
Aspirations of aversion easily dispensed are met
The black sheep of religiosity are we
For obligatory offerings of martyrdom fail
But accustomed semblance of futility quite clearly prevail

It would far too strenuous
To merely chalk it up to experience
Rather, it fits quite perfectly
In a tangled and twisted category of mock allegory
Playing tedious games
Quick to fuck with our minds
It’s far too late for apathy and
An apology would mask only occasional piety

A broken promise such as this
Conveys hidden truth
A broken promise such as this
Proves absence of propaganda ignorantly deemed as proof
A broken promise such as this
Sheds light on dark thought that often maims the brain
Regression or digression,
Call it what you will
Resurgence of early childhood in following absence of fear
In our soon-to-be convalescent minds
Nothing stands as sacred
No deity bears a name
Though every forgotten moment remains as mystery
With a broken promise such as this

So sit back and relax
Bask in the warm coals of this hell you thought you knew
Sanguine sanity in the growing atrocity
Though pessimistic are the thoughts I take home with me
Every glance in the mirror
Repels a face of shame
And every dream reminds me of questions;
Of answers left unmet
Because nothing stands as sacred
And no deity bears a name
Because every single fucking moment
Of my innate existence remains as mystery
With a broken promise such as this

@Joker: You need a hug or something dude? You seem a little upset!

I don't write tons and tons of poetry, and what poetry I do write I'm not able to remember. So I'd rather post a poem that I do know by Millay.

First Fig

My candle burns at both ends
It will not last the night
But oh, my friends! And ah, my foes!
It gives a lovely light

Same problem here. I use poetry, ect. to release my feelings, which usually end up being bad. I'll post one of mine soon and you'll see what i mean
