'Bad' PoetryWords that only rhyme,
Expressing thoughts as old as time.
Twisted and coiled with meaning,
Just me trying to conjure a feeling.
A little emotion to make the reader think,
Nothing too fluffy or anything too pink.
No risks are taken by me,
So it’s basically as simple as you see.
I don’t have that spark,
That poets have to make their poems work.
My language is monotonous,
And now...I’ve given up on the rhyming.
Words that only rhyme, what happens when poetry doesn’t rhyme? When simple monotonous language is used? When nothing like shakespeare’s works are produced? There you have it. 'Bad' poetry.
More Than One PillShe was a piece of living skin holding flesh, a mouldy heart and worn out brain,
The only one thinking nothing could ever numb her pain.
A hollow body with empty veins, and a ripped will,
Became of the girl that took more than one pill.
There's Just Something About Leo: Chapter 99. Secrets released beside the fire.
“Do you seriously have any psychic gifts?”
I grimaced. “Yes.”
“I knew it!” He laughed. “So…you can just read people’s minds whenever you want?”
I shuffled on the spot a bit; I hated being asked questions to which the answers were complicated.
“Well, yes but I choose to respect people’s privacy so I only read them if I need to, or if people think ‘loudly’ I pick up on those thoughts without meaning to.”
Leo nodded slowly as I spoke.
“Is that what’s been happening, every time you answer to something we think instead of say?” He asked.
“Yea.” I continued. “I never realise that it’s a thought sometimes, because it sounds like the thought holders voice.”
He changed his position on the log again; which made me think that we’d end up talking for longer than an hour or that he had a list of
She Is PoetryShe speaks to me in sonnets
Sighing her similes
Angrily articulating her alliterations
and ranting her rhymes.
She mumbles her metaphors
Heaving heavily her haikus
Bickering her ballads
at my feeble free verse.
Perfect DissonanceThe sound of my sins
hummed softly under her breath:
she caressed my heart's strings -
strummed perfect silence.
The sound of silenceThe sound of silence,
Is so deafening,
That it makes my ears ring,
With the cacophony of my own insanity.
Immortal EmberOh luminous star that bathes at sea
Such a blaze of light... faint clarity
Thy flame does ember, thus remember
In light of darkness, I burn with thee
Endings.The end is inevitable.
We're all racing towards our dying day
And crashing into our graves.
Without any breaks.
Because just like everything else,
We all will someday come to an end.
And close our books,
On our stories.
And let another chapter begin.
dead silkdressed in dead woman's
in cloths of silver
drapes of mist
in vestures of promises and one broken wish
through their pearly veil
and silken screams
like a ghost
a shadow of a man
after midnight hour
miles to goi.
i am tired
of having nowhere to go after midnight,
when the skies are cloudiest,
and the streets are darkest.
there's a thirst in me
that desires a map for this twisted path of life;
it's too broken in places
to navigate alone.
goodbyes echo in my head as i step
off the train platform and onto the waiting car,
but i cannot concentrate, for fear
that i have boarded wrong.
so all i can ask
is for you to keep your arms open,
for it's the closest thing to home
that i have ever known.
Broken SmilesBroken smiles and empty hellos
Beneath my skin, a soul bellows
Not too loud, but not too quiet
Yet enough for thoughts in mind cause riot.
Broken smiles and perfect skin
Opening up and crying is treated as sin
Hope filled sighs and dangerous intimacy
Nourish a part of me unconditionally.
Broken smiles and temporary moments,
And me thinking you’re my only component.
But most of all, that broken smile
The one that keeps me hidden for a while.
The layer of protection I always seek
If only there was something to make it complete.
