Bavvy - thanks for your kind words.

You're only 16, bloody hell you're just a baby. In which case I'm even more impressed by your poetry. Posted Image

I once wrote poetry, when my life was a lot more dreary.

Looking back at it, i have to say... WTF was i thinking!? Of all the poetry i wrote only two lines have any merit at all.

Here they are:

Let’s burn the tree of knowledge
And dance in the ashes of certainty.

The rest was melodramatic gloomy crap. But hey i was only 15 or something.

And a second one...this time it's in the first singular form, meaning i'm the speaker! Posted Image Posted Image

==================================

I tore the corners of my lips again
I won’t learn to breathe I guess
I know it couldn’t matter less

Insane children’s game
Who falls first off the carousel

I set my hands aflame
Now if you let me touch you
I will show you poetry.

=================================

I guess I'll rewrite it sooner or later. It was just something that I really needed to write I guess Posted Image

and *ahem* please comment, I don't sulk n I'm not a mod Posted Image

farad & Aimless - cheers. You're lucky it's quite a while since I read the Iliad otherwise I might have gone on for ever. Oh well only so many stupid puns and jokes you can do. I can't believe I forgot Cassandra and I should have put something in about "bleach blonde Ajax cleaning up" but wasn't sure whether it would have meant anything to anyone outside the UK.


Bav - tut tut my little pomme frite, don't you know size matters. Posted Image and swearing at your tender age. I don't know. Posted Image

@ farad - cheers mate Posted Image

@ Bav - as promised here's another (can you guess the inspiration)

Spit and Polish

Behind a silk soft silhouette
an acid tongued sharp shock jockette,
performs deft verbal pirouettes.
What’s that name I can’t forget?

At times a child with simple glee,
infectious laughter breaking free.
An open mind, eyes wide to see,
frankly gifting honesty.

At others a woman demure,
sophisticated and secure.
An icy intellect that’s sure,
ever searching to learn more.

A fiery heart that’s burning bright
with confidence in what is right.
She clutches brittle armour tight
sheds her tears out of our sight.

Creative force with talent clear,
and gentle warmth that draws you near.
A wisdom that belies her years,
always welcomed by her peers.

Dearest Bavvy - so nice to converse with you once more. Yes I am afraid I have been absent from here too long and my muse had deserted me but hopefully I shall be able to start producing the goods again! In the meantime i have missed your own creative flurry - very impressive.

Danke schön Posted Image

It was supposed to be about a man that's been handicapped after an accident, and then it was supposed to be about a man that'd just separated with his wife, and then it was supposed to be about an average Joe with an average job... I can't tell what I settled on, but I dun' think it was no. 1 anyway. Title inspired by you, and content partly inspired by a line from Welcome Mrs. Doubtfire, and partly by a new friend I've made--a funny but moody guy with CP.

I like short, simple poems. If that gives rise to a confusing host of interpretations, all the better. But you'll [almost] never see me write a poem like the ones you guys write, because I just don't have the attention-span required to take something beyond ten lines or so Posted Image

I also like playing structural games--with rhymes, syllables, flow and so on. That kinda game is hard to play, with long poems (I get bored, in other words).

Short simple poems are fun to write and (hopefully!) fun to read.

Did I have a point? Yeah. I'd like to see you guys play around some more Posted Image
