Okay fine xD

To warm up, some haikus! Then I'll move on to bigger stuff gradually I guess xD

Earthbound constellations shine!

I actually have a good lot of them linked here but it has a lot of stories. And some are really, really old.

Cybersadhu is Jack's storyline though, and his section+Janan's+Devin's have the most poetry.

;__; er or should I be quoting them here like you did?


I LOVE that first one though D: That's like... on top of my favorite haikus list now

IT'S HARD TO QUOTE MINE HERE BECAUSE OF FORMATTING but okay, lessee

Quote :
G r i s


I'm pinning Ashen Edges Together;
Burnt Pages in Shapes so Meaningful
A Collage on an Empty Wall
Making Minimal Nothings
Into Colossal Somethings
By a Simple Path of Placing and Spacing

Take these Letters I've Written,
Take a Flame to Their Edge
(one or two words consumed by flame)
(but the memory remains)

Newsprint Grey Dissolves to Cream,
Off-White Paste of Flour to Taste
Ink-Stained Substance
And each Word-Covered Strip becomes Indiscernible,
Lorem-Ipsum Given Form
Blocks of Words Wrapped Around
And Sculpture given Ground

Smoothes with Plaster,
Painted Grey,
Formless Form for Shadowplay.

And beneath the Plaster,
Newsprint.
Seven Obituaries,
Six Politicians
Five Automobile Ads
Four Pieces of a Murder Story
Three Local Columns
Two Horoscopes

and!
One
fortune
from
a cookie.

in black and white that blur together in Papier-Mache,
It says to appreciate Overcast Days
In More than Subtle Ways.

Oh, I think there's a lot of freedom with formatting in this forum o3o;; Try copy/pasting stuff that is formatted into here directly? Maybe it'll work! x3

AND THAT. That was beautiful. ;v; <33 Wao.

I think... the closest thing I have is this from 2003. xDD I was... 12? *keeps archives of poems by date written on computer*

Quote :
A new little poem


A new little poem
What will it contain?
Is it a new subject
Or is it just the same?

A new little poem
Is it short or long?
Can it be sung
Just like a song?

What is it about?
Do we whisper or shout?
Who wrote it?
How?

So many questions
About this poem
Well I’ll show them,
It’s just the questions.

Any questions?


-Mythee




But meh, since it's comparatively not all that interesting I'll post this one too.

Quote :
Clarity


Thousands of tiny stars, perched in every tree
Like a scintillating flock of birds, stretching to infinity
Bounced and slid, dripped and dropped
Dancing, singing, the rain has stopped!

One
after
the
other
they

Burst into brief scatters of sunlit water
Upon the surface of the mirrors below,
Like blossoms of light, small sparkling fireworks
To celebrate the return of clear blue skies.

I did try pasting and it looked like it kept the formatting but when it posted, it didn't, and I'm thinking it's JUUUUST a little far-fetched to go trying to re-space the damn thing.

I really like the imagery of the second one, it kinda takes full lead over the wording of the poem itself.

now it's time for a Luke poem.

Quote :
Ah, Damn, there's grit in the bottom of my cup,

But

Aah, Damn, I still can't get enough,

It keeps us Alert, it keeps us Awake,

A bit of Borrowed Will to Keep us up Late.

Fire and Kettle,

Dents in the Metal,

There's a Moon over head, Thin to Test the Mettle

Of us on the Range, Brothers Estranged,

Guarding a herd from the Tooth of the Mange

Rifle and Cartridge are one in the same,

But we couldn't do a Damn Thing without our Brown Brew,

Strong as Hell, And as hot to Boot

Not used to it, well, watch out when you Shoot.

Ain't Nothing Worse than the Jitters when something Dark Skitters

Just out of reach of what Night lets you See

Yeah I'm solving the respacing problem by previewing it in a forum without html formatting (Gaia) and then copy/pasting it here again. n-n;; Ughugh. Sorry. D'8

LOL COFFEE
That's epic xDDD For some reason I'm imagining it as a weird little song with just one or two instruments and a man with a low gritty voice singing it
idk
And thanks! ovo I'm glad you like the imagery, it's the thing I focus on kinda xD;;

And this is what happens when you're running low on coffee and doze off woops

Quote :
Promenade

In the quiet place of slumbering
where forgotten symbols lay
A world whose giant pendulums
fill the sky with their gentle sway

By a numbed will overcome,
I walk forwards, promenade

I walk the peaceful hills of dream
I walk along rivers of dream
I walk between curtains of dream

There are gleaming birds behind green leaves
Who swiftly take flight

I walk among figments of dream
I walk within gardens of dream
I walk with consciousness of dream

Anemone drifting in the wind
Faint chimes in the sleepy light
Promenade

The first and second parts of that are really great, they have a nice beat to 'em that the rest of the poem doesn't? Especially "By a numbed will overcome\I walk forwards, promenade" That is my favorite part.


yess the coffee one is intended for that arrangement exactly C8

By formatting though I mean REALLY WEIRD SPACING, subscript/superscript and typography like that D% It's tough to translate some of my poems over without that, especially the Cybersadhu group.

Here's two that went with the piece I wrote about the nightmare in which the toothpuppies first appeared:

Quote :
Glory to be Unfined
A Riddle Waking in Your Mind

Ask the Question,
Free the Keys
Stashed in Chaches
Hoarded in Waylines, Bylined by Roots Beneath the Earth

The Keys I Have Sought
Jangle at my Belt
A testament to doors not open (emotions never felt)

Quote :
There are things in the Dark
That Deign not to Sleep
Creatures Hunting and Running
Scenting out our life-blood-heart-beat
I cannot come to Hate it
I only blame myself for to bait it
As its growls spell out:

"Don't. Tread. on. Me."

There are fiercer things than panthers and rattlesnakes in places like this.
Just...
...Remember, Little Birdie.
[The F o r e s t Doesn't L o v e Us.]

Ohh. @v@;; And you'd have to redo the formatting and stuff here if you wanted to post those. Dayum.

Two more awesome poems! 8'D I love it when they have a very defined mood. (It's from Jack's point of view?)

This one below is titled Armaj because it's a poem based on my OC of the same name. :3 I was in the mood for a brawl and writing this was like. My substitute for a fight. xDD

Quote :
Flowers breathe fire on this battlefield
They twist and writhe within my blood
My mind burns in its poisoned flood
I don’t think it can be healed

Look at me I’m bleeding all over this world
Finally, the fragrance of ruin calls
I’ll break all the darkness, all the walls
Destroy it all till the whole sky’s unfurled

My heart is twisting, tightening, twisting in anticipation
The violence
It overflows

I’m roaring, soaring forever to the song of destruction
I’m gushing out
Nothing can save you

Goodbye world of ashes farewell land of graves
I’ll tear them to pieces and blow them away
I’m crushing your cage and you still want to stay
These homes made for death, their confinement depraves

My heart is boiling, bursting, boiling with elation
The violence
It overflows

I’m roaring, soaring forever to the song of destruction
I’m gushing out
Nothing can save you

Flowers breathe fire on this battlefield
They twist and writhe within my blood
My mind burns with a poisoned flood
I don’t think it can be healed

Look at me I’m fighting against your world
Finally, the fragrance of ruin calls
I’ll break all the darkness, all the walls
Destroy it all till the whole sky’s unfurled

My heart is twisting, tightening, twisting in anticipation
The violence
It overflows

I’m roaring, soaring forever to the song of destruction
I’ll be the end
To this illusion

AND THEN POKEMON TIME
Lol this was for a little event I held where people had to write poems about the pokemon they get from randomizing their national dex number.

Quote :
Seel

Okay son what's this and why let it out
No, I don't want that, don't make me shout
Look kid just put it back in its ball NOW
What do you mean you don't know how
Hey why are you letting it into the pool
Tell it to get out that's expensive you fool
Oh please tell me it's not using Horn Attack
Just say return, just please get it back
Oh damn and now it's taking a dump
You brat now it'll block up the pump
That's it kid just go to your room you're grounded
As for you, Seel, you're getting pounded
Do you have a problem with that huh what's with that frown
Oh god someone save me it's using Take Down
