How about I stick this and it can be the topic for everyone to share their own poetry?

Actually, I'm going to do that.

This love of mine has seen it’s day

The colors have all gone with day
The beauty done and creatures become fey

Plastic Smiles.

The crows encircle me,
As i walk through this wasteland,
A can of Hope in one hand
A lace of freedom in the other.
When i was 4 you gave me this locket,
Inside a picture full of fake smiles,
Fake beleifs, Fake hope, Fake trust,
Smiles so cold, So bitter,
"Just look at this picture and we'll be there"
That means nothing now!
Were are you when i need you most?
I have been alone for so long,
No sign of Beleif, hope or trust!
But it doesn't matter now,
This Can of hope will bring us together,
This lace of freedom will make sure you stay-
For the show.
Your fake masqeurade fooled nobody,
You were to busy chasing your fix,
To notice the halo above my head,
I needed you, You obviousley thought different.
The fake smiles on your face my me sick,
So Plastic, so fake,
I would know, I spent my life-
Hiding behing Fake smiles,
Reasurring you everything was okay,
I was dying inside...
I was on the streets at 7-on my own
Where was my mother?
Oh-that's right you were getting
Drunk off your ass- and screwing
Heroin needles until your arms were black and blue
This kerosene will handle all the memories
Every single stomach churning-acid-
Burning-turning, sizzling thought
That leads straight back to both of you
I was eating out of garbage cans at 9
Where was my father?
Oh-that's right you were teaching me
How to sell ecstasy in alleyways and
How to run from cops and
Drugs 101-the very foundation-
The basics of snorting cocaine-
And the best way to get your high.
I want nothing left to do with you,
I leave every trace of me behind,
Covering them in thihs can of Hope,
This can of kerosene,
Every picture, Every Fake smile-
Every Lie, Every Deception,
Every fucking wide eyed promise!
Not once,
Did you say "I love you" and mean it,
Forget all those Goodnight kisses,
Forget all the hugs you gave me when i hurt myself,
You never even noticed the scars on my arms,
3 years it went on,
I just liked the feeling of tearing myself open,
Leaving traces of myself behind,
For other people to see.
But thats all over now,
Thiis kerosene will see me to the end,
See us to the end,
Gave a chance, you could have stopped me.
Through It all,
I always did love you....
Good night.



No name



Take me away from this nghtmare
Give me Spira or Russia
Make my video game life come true
Take me away from this nightmare
Because i would give anything...Anything
Just to be you.

Given the fact that change is for the better,
I embrace for the worst,
Living my life behind curtains of false belief,
I hold my anger behing the walls of terror.
That you have brought upon my fragile heart,
Hiding behind the honest truth,
You never saw that my heart was falling at your feet.
Hold Me, Love Me,
Thats all I ask,
...





You left me (One of my favourite peices.)

Never leaving you
Such beautiful words
"I will never leave you"
They echo through my veins,
And glorify my heart,
I love you...
Such elegance,
Such a breath-taking flow,
Such Soft lips,
Such innocent eyes,
Stay by me forever...
All the things that are right with the world,
Get better,
Fuck Global Warming,
And the bastards in their Science labs,
I've Got...You've got me...
-------------------------------------------------------------
You left me...


I sit in the corner,
in complete darkness,
clutching that note,
"I'll be home before you know it"
Yer right,
I almost believed you,
Until the booze, the drugs and the sex,
It all got to your head,
Whatever happened to me?
Am i your faded memory?
I cry myself to sleep every night,
All in false hope,
It's my own fault really,
I know you're not coming back,
Ever....
"I'll be home before you know it"
The words echo in my mind,
I must have read them over a thousand times,
My trust in you was stronger than my trust in me,
You were my rock at hard times,
But it doesn't matter now,
The gun in my hand can solve these problems,
These fears...

My heart bleeds for you,
Physical pain is my thought of you,
What are you doing to yourself,
"Just one more, give me one more"
I remeber the day i hid your stash,
And i will never forget it,
The 6-inch scar you left on my arm,
This pain...
The doctor asked me how i got it y'know,
It took all the love i had to lie for you,
Even with all the addiction and violence,
I couldn't have lived without you there,
But it doesn't matter now,
I have the bottle to take my fear,
And this gun to take my emotion,
Your emotion...

"I'll be home before you know it"
If this statement ever lives up to it's name,
I hope you have forgot about me,
Saying that you probably already have,
Just to let you know,
I love you,
you always were the best,
.......

“Loss and Dreams”
Anytime you are down
just remember
to get rid of that frown
and surrender.
Something important may be lost,
and it will go away like the morning frost
Your dreams may seem quixotic...
...but that is no reason to be neurotic.
If you strive for anything, then keep in mind
that then you achieve your dream, you will feel divine.
Because it is holding you back from what you need,
and that is for you to go out and follow your dreams.

[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]In spring of youth it was my lot
To haunt of the wide world a spot
The which I could not love the less-
So lovely was the loneliness
Of a wild lake, with black rock bound,
And the tall pines that towered around.
[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]But when the Night had thrown her pall
Upon that spot, as upon all,
And the mystic wind went by
Murmuring in melody-
Then–ah then I would awake
To the terror of the lone lake.
[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Yet that terror was not fright,
But a tremulous delight-
A feeling not the jewelled mine
Could teach or bribe me to define-
Nor Love–although the Love were thine.
[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Death was in that poisonous wave,
And in its gulf a fitting grave
For him who thence could solace bring
To his lone imagining-
Whose solitary soul could make
An Eden of that dim lake.
[/FONT]

The Lake-Edgar Allen Poe

Poe is by far my favorite poet who has ever lived.​

Slaves to drums
Killer instincts, alien
Not from soul, implanted hate
One
Patriots are those who serve
Two
Patriots are those who obey
Three
Patriots are those who kill
Four
Patriots are those who die
One
Feel the beat
Two
Frenzied instincts
Three
Dance without conscience
Four
Dance without sanity​

Behind
Behind her smile is the song of a Seraphim
Is joy
Echoes

Behind her clothes is flawless, sensual skin
Is truth
Beauty

Behind her skin is a heart of infinite compassion
Is passion
Life

Behind her diamond eyes is a goddess' soul
Is transcendence
Philosophy

Behind my masquerade is love
Is poetry
Waiting

this was a poem I wrote for my school's Lit Mag, which incidentally was edited by GF's Kazmarov.

God invented corners for a reason
Two sides to enclose you
Two sides to expose you
Like the friend who really knows you
Two sides to keep you safe

From the inside, a corner represents enclosure
A reason to stand still, curl up, and stay
But from the outside…
it marks change
An angle is a new leaf, turning at the point

God invented corners for a reason
You can use them however you like
You look at the world, all you really see is angles
Angles and curves
Each an opportunity to hide from the world
Or whip around it on a dime

Two sides to enclose you
Two sides to expose you

So it really comes down to which two you turn to
Two sides meet to cast a shadow
Turn to them for blissful ignorance
Turn to them for stifling blindness
Two stay open to the world
Turn to them when you want to see
Turn to them to be blinded again

Really, we’re all blind in the end
Folds are corners, corners are folds
We’ve been blinded by folds
Or so I’ve been told

Can’t see for myself, can I?
