sigmundfreud: THINKING OF U...
I think of you…

As a flower
With coloured petals

As a tower
Of precious metals

As a stream
Cool and blue
(Flowing through)

As a dream
Coming true

As a shower
Drizzling gold

As a cover
In freezing cold

…I think of you!


Me likey

Haiku form of poetry

'DAYMARE'

****4 years after graduating from school****

Injured dream -
Reality bruising 'daymare'
Another blood sweat stain

****5 years later after getting employed****

Life ache worries thee -
In the busiest of time
Wealth, Wife, kids and me!

****During Old age****

Now, time is lazy
white hairs and weak bones, life... pleased!
Death, when will you knock?

Blackened rain
Darkened Veins
Coloured rays
Troubled ways
They scream on the outside
Hungry for whats on the inside
I sit on the inside
My gun aimed at them on the outside
Blackened rain
Troubled veins
Sharp canines
Curved pincers
Blood-thirsty mongrels
Mutated scoundrels
Once human they were
Now they have changed
They are less human
More beast
They punch the windows
Bang the doors
I sit on the inside
Unafraid
Unmoving
I wont last long
THey will get through
And when they do
My jugular they will do

******************
Lastnights' dream, rather troubling if u may say

Black eye
I need a sunshade
hiding behind it
and the rays the sun bring
in wonder they stare
musing
thinking it's a new kind of gait
but behind the dark veil
my ramshackled eye stared on.

I am so pleased to find
a thread with words in mind
with rhymes that kindle emotion
and lyrics that show attention
to a cause worth promotion
and an art requiring devotion.
Re: The Poets' Café : Chat Room! by frodobee: 5:31pm On Feb 08, 2013
Good thread and lovely posts
shaping minds and nurturing thoughts,
though i like you, i do not wish to be like you- post- never smiles, never cries. Just there pointing.

Long I'd love poetry
Long to it I feel drawn
Like the moan of harlotry
Lures the lonely at dawn

The poet tells me of the hills
Of the beautiful flowers on the plains
And birds singing down the valley
My heart he makes sing the melody
Of even a stream flowing by

Isn't poetry a sweet dream
That leaves one cocooned in fantasy
Isn't it only an ecstasy
That harlotry cannot promise the chaste

Yet I stop not to swoon at his words
Eternally in hope of that abode
A world where if firestar offers a hand
That hand can be felt; its warmth embraced
Oh how I wish the poet's world were real.

Re: The Poets' Café : Chat Room! by Prodigee: 7:05pm On Feb 08, 2013
LIFE OH LIFE
You give it 5 cents
And it gives back 1 cent
You give it your all
It gives you nothing at all
You ask for justice
And it gives you injustice
You work and toil for gain
And all you get as reward is pain
The rich gets richer
While the poor gets poorer
The government is corrupt
Society is decaying and left to rot
Immorality is the order of the day
Sin seems to pave the way
Money has become a god
Kids now only know words to songs on their iPod
As dube said the world's a crazy place
Full of hate and violence and disgrace
Well for now i let my fingers rest
Hoping for a better tomorrow and all the best.

The soft whisper of emptiness...
A brain racked, muscles strained.
Its undiluted, emptiness.
Betrayal by a muse pained.

A sigh...
Words unsaid.
Do no let this moment die!
Voices scream in my head.

Write Ray, write!
Lest you be a laughing stock.
Do not surrender without a fight,
To this writer's block.
Re: The Poets' Café : Chat Room! by Caracta(f): 7:58pm On Feb 08, 2013
Emptiness? No
I hear a noise...a loud one
It pierces my ears
Shatters my heart
My grip is weak...my knees bow in fear

What is happening to me?
Please stop.
The noise...i hate it.
The sounds are terrifying.

Write if you want to
It's your pen and paper
Your time...your space.
I am not a writer.

******************************
Have you ever thought in your heart,
Have you ever wondered like me,
"Where am I going?"

Has it ever crossed your mind,
Has it fleeted through your consciousness,
The big question; "Where am I going?"

In your stuggles in life,
In your pursuits on earth,
Have you stopped and asked:
"Where am I going?"

It will do you good to ask
Your self
"Where am I going?"

The answer to this question,
The response to this heart-quest:
"Where am I going?"
May help you to know
That without a purpose
In your life

Your endless struggles
Of shadows
Will take you
Nowhere
