Im not aware of a thread like this, if there is please let me know.

Im a huge fan of poetry; i love reading it, i love writing it, and i love sharing it. So i made this thread for sharing poems and advice on writing them.
My poetry tends to be about my inner emotions, its a way of letting it all out in an indirect way.
I will post some of mine soon but i want to know if you guys think this is a good idea.

My fav poem at the moment is probably This Shore by Tom Milsom, its about NYC. I dont know what it is i like, i think its the rhythm and how he says it (video on youtube btw)

So share your poems and favourite pieces!

No problem :P

I enjoy writing poetry occasionally but I'm my own critic and never think they're any good :ph34r: Maybe I'll share something later.

I love Poetry as well, even though mine tends to come out kind of emo >.> idk why but it does lol. here is one of my most recent

Mind Games

I want to confess
So I can forget
But to confess
Is to cause harm.
These games in my head
They dont give in

I sit in the dark
Wondering if I am insane
But the voice spoken
Reminds me why.

Your voice soft
Your words unfeeling
Yet it still sends shivers through me.

Am I wrong
To feel this way
Am I wrong
To give in

These mind games keep pulling
ripping at the strings of my heart

You are him
In every aspect
But why..
Why cant I forget
You linger in the back
Of my god forsaken mind
Telling me words of coldness

Your name...

untold...

My favorite and most inspiring is Footprints

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord. Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.

In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand. Sometimes there were two sets of footprints, other times there was one only.

This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,

“You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”

The Lord replied, “The years when you have seen only one set of footprints, my child, is when I carried you.”

My poems atm are emo too
I wrote this yesterday

Memories:

Those memories, those memories
Those memories that scar
Those scars inside my head
Those scars across my arm
Its those memories
Those ones that haunt again

It burns and it hurts
Those thoughts and those taunts
The ones that are stuck
Stuck here in my mind
Its those memories
The ones I have to live with

I don't really write poems, these are just some of the latest I've written, but poetry is not my thing. And I'm not a translator either, all of these are written in Swedish originally ;)


a little thought
You fill me up
I can't think, you're in my head
You're in my ears, I can't hear
You want me to shut my mouth
but I can't!
You fill me up.
I can't meet your requirement.




me against the world
It was raining
The World and I drank tea
But the World wanted coffee.
The World looked at me
I drank in silence
The World said nothing
We both knew where we were going

"You and I don't belong together"




little brother close his eyes
Big brother sees you
you don't stand a chance
Hide here
I will protect you
You will not be seen

Little brother close his eyes
do what you like
Don't hide here
I don't want to protect you
Not without cause
You need to be seen

Big brother sees you
Little brother close his eyes
What do you want?



observation
it's grey
my heart is hiding
the warmth is hiding
no, it's too early

it's grey
water fill the earth
they pull dead dogs in leashes
the clouds say nothing

i observe
from a safe distance
i see what you don't see
what you don't understand






when the wind is cold
but the sun still shining
they stand there
sun in the eyes
reflections
they stand together
the ocean in front of them
roar darkly
hide more than they know
they turn around and walk away
the ocean gives and the ocean takes
they go together
leave what it took
she look at him
he take her hand
they go together
away from the ocean
from the salt air
the seagulls cries
and the waves dance

Thank you =)

My favourite poems are by Sappho who lived on the island Lesbos around 600 BC. They haven't find a complete poem, only fragments. No one really knows much about her, but her poems are filled with love and some call her the first love poet. I use to read the fragments in Swedish. I love the feeling in them, but I haven't find it in the English translations yet ;)


**
What country maiden charms thy heart,
However fair, however sweet,
Who has not learned by gracious Art
To draw her dress around her feet?


**

By the cool water the breeze murmurs, rustling
Through apple branches, while from quivering leaves
Streams down deep slumber.


**

Who made me gifts and honoured me?

**

To you, fair maidens, my mind does not change.

**

Turn to me, dear one, turn thy face,
And unveil for me in thine eyes, their grace.


**

I think men will remember us even hereafter.

**

With my two arms, I do not aspire to to touch the sky.

**

Now like a mountain wind the oaks o'erwhelming,
Eros shakes my soul.


**


The sinking moon has left the sky,
The Pleiades have also gone.
Midnight comes--and goes, the hours fly
And solitary still, I lie.

The Moon has left the sky,
Lost is the Pleiads' light;
It is midnight,
And time slips by,
But on my couch alone I lie.

A BIG thanks to the beautiful BoMa, my big sister <3. I know I haven't been around much to talk, but you're more than amazing and I'm so happy to receive this graphic as a gift. Thanks for being so kind-hearted. ;)

Quotes Which Resonate with Me:
"There is no success without determination" -K.S., #24. RIP <3, 2009.
"I don't need any of you to approve of my decisions, I need ya'll to respect them" -Sandra Bullock in 'The Blind Side'.
"People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstance. The people who get on in the world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them." -George Bernard Shaw, Irish playwright.

come take a peek at the sexy poem in my info ;)
“To sell your soul is the easiest thing in the world.
That's what everybody does every hour of his life.

If I asked you to keep your soul -
would you understand why that's much harder?”

The Lord replied, “The years when you have seen only one set of footprints, my child, is when I carried you.”

 

Though I'm agnostic and not a believer, I though that was a beautiful poem. 

I have one I love that I would like to share with you : 

 

Max Ehrmann 


Desiderata 

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story. 

 

Avoid loud and aggressive persons,

they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. 

 

Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism. 

 

Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass. 

 

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself. 

 

You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. 

 

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. 

 

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy. 

 

Max Ehrmann, Desiderata, Copyright 1952.


Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself. 

 

Desiderata
