Words float
not from your mouth
rather in your aura
i love your words
life-giving words
because life isn't life
if it isn't spent
with you
an emotion isn't felt
if you haven't compelled it.
a vision isn't beautiful
if you aren't in it
A smile, not smiled as wide...
if you aren't there
to return it.
I love you.

I love whoever wrote that poem. It's kinda the way I feel about that person, even though I didn't write it. That person writes good shit.

I love poetry. I write, heres one of mine.

"Off With the Night"


A horrid rendition of current conditions
Is ever so slowly now coming into view,
As I lie here sinking into wondrous thinking
Of the classically old and perfectly new
Beautiful renditions of every condition.

Then I began to hear the deep silence draw near,
A silence that could speak clearer than any sound,
Of all that we believe and all we shall conceive,
And it brought me to wonder what will come around,
Come around as I hear thoughts in silence draw near.

Will I just smile or cry in this state that I lie?
The state in which one must sometimes just choose sadness
To make it through a day before you go away,
Off to a lonely place that some may call madness,
A place to smile or cry no matter where you lie.

Is that smile all we know or is it just what we show
As we slowly wander off into the twilight
Into a sinking sun, gone before we are done
Slowly pulling us into this newly born night,
A time to try to know what we will begin to show.

It may be impulsive, or likely compulsive,
To do just as we tend and show just what we feel,
As we attempt to hide in realms deep inside
Ever so far from all that seems as if it's real,
No longer impulsive, now merely compulsive.

We're all caught in this game always feeling the same,
Just striving to matter and pretending to care
All just trying to fly as some falter and die
Die as they are dreaming of obtaining their share
Before leaving this game, off to more of the same.

The one mere social tool is destroying the fool,
Pulling him slowly deep below the cold night ground
Singing her own sad songs as she fulfills these wrongs
Pleasing everyone but no one, standing around
As this mere lonely tool is becoming the fool.

Then together they fly striving ever so high,
Both escaping alone and together from fear,
In this moment that seems to be scripted in dreams
But all that they dread shall now suddenly appear,
As they solemnly fly, falling from so high.

Forced down by the silence, using subtle violence
Ever so slowly clouding and calming my head
Now just drifting away to conclude my own day
With a sober peace, into which I shall be led,
Created by silence to abolish my violence.

With our silence in full and my thoughts in a lull,
Only dreaming of all the dreams yet to be dreamed,
When a darkness is full and logic can just lull,
When all that once seemed to seem now no longer seems,
I can creep into a sleep, beautiful and deep.

are you confused yet?

So this thread is for original poetry only? We can't just post some of our favorites or what? I'd never post anything that I've written, I won't even let my closest friends read any. I'm with LI on this one.

I'm like that with alot of my poetry; some I would like to share, and some I wouldn't let anyone see. I don't think this thread is for just original poetry, I think it was created just to talk about poetry. I could be wrong though; I didn't create it.

are you confused yet?

Well, okay then.


i like my body when it is with your
body. It is so quite new a thing.
Muscles better and nerves more.
i like your body. i like what it does,
i like its hows. i like to feel the spine
of your body and its bones, and the trembling
-firm-smooth ness and which i will
again and again and again
kiss, i like kissing this and that of you,
i like, slowly stroking the, shocking fuzz
of your electric fur, and what-is-it comes
over parting flesh . . . . And eyes big love-crumbs,

and possibly i like the thrill

of under me you so quite new

Same here.

I didn't know Cummings had written anything that - for lack of a better word - erotic.
Things are not what they used to be; Missing one inside of me
Deathly lost, this can't be real; Cannot stand this hell I feel
Emptiness is filing me; To the point of agony
Growing darkness taking dawn; I was me, but now He's gone...

i sure do like it though

i like to post my poetry to get some feedback. i've been somewhat desensitized, but it still hurtsif someone doesn't like it. someday i might post my fav one of mine, (that is original of course) and my explaination of it. it's pretty good i think. lovely insanity has read it. it's really what i'm most proud of. the rest of my poetry is mostly undeveloped thoughts on paper basically.

Alot of mine is too. But every once in awhile I sit down and really try to work something out into a smoothly flowing poem.

I didn't know that...I guess that's not the part they teach you...

I have problems putting my ideas into words as well...

So how come no one's posting any poetry? Especially curious as to why Danielle in particular has not posted any of her own work.

One time I wrote a poem about the 3200 meter race. It was a class assignment. It was good. Other than that, I haven't written any since I was young.

There once was a slug named Doug.
He was about the size of a bug.
Down came a shoe,
Causing green goo,
To pour out from the poor little slug.

Bleh, here you go. I grow less and less fond of this one as days go by, but people still seem to like it.

I see many things as I hang from the hangman's noose
I see how my life has had no use
I see people wondering what was to blame
I see some people wondering who I was and what was my name
I see people crying, I see people not caring
I see all this as I hang from my hangman's noose

I hear many things as I hang from my hangman's noose
I hear the people cry
I hear people saying that I should die
I hear my mother and father asking what went wrong
I hear myself think about why my will is so weak but my body so strong
I hear all this as I hang from my hangman's noose

I feel many things from my hangman's noose
I feel the noose get tighter and I realise that my body is a fighter
I feel that my body just won't die
I feel the tears welling up in my eye
I feel the people's breath laugh at me while I cry
I feel in my head that laugh is all they’ll ever do
I feel that in my heart to
I feel all this as I hang from the hangman's noose

I look over at the hangman while I hang from the hangman's noose
I look over and see a pathetic person
I look and see a smile filled with perversion
I look and see a body so big and strong but weak on the inside
I look and see his eyes open wide
I look and see his hands make a long stride
I look and see myself fall from the mirror
I look down at myself and see, I just died
I saw all this from the hangman's noose
My hands were finally put to good use
I just hung myself from my own noose
And I know it aches
How your heart it breaks
You can only take so much
Walk on

this is my favourite part

i really like it because it shows the self hatred that is deep down in everyone; or at least the people who think about it enough. hrm, i hope that came out right.

i like it because it shows his disgust for humanity; and disgust at himself at the same time. he really hates himself, and of course, that's what ends his life. very sad, i like the twist at the end.

I don't really write any poetry... I have written some but they're to personal to share with anyone. I really enjoy reading good poetry though.

I love all of emtilt's poems, especially the one he posted, "Off With the Night"
