    I second your proposal.

    The problem with this idea is that it is a forum for fanart/fanfiction/fanmusic. These threads are here so there aren't art and poem threads all over the place. It's a nice idea, but I think you're better off going to an actual poetry related forum for something like that.


    Also, I find it funny that you say your poetry is too good for this venue. What do you have to lose to post it here? Get it criticised by people who aren't on the same level as you? :P More than half the stuff here isn't critisized anyways...

    Try me.

    By the way, I've always liked the Eliot essay.

    Indeed, if I simply wanted to read poetry, I would by much better off going to a different venue, and I do. Here my interest in poetry is combined with my interest in this community of which I have been an observer and sometimes contributer to for a number of years. I am interested in what these various personalities of yours have to produce. Also, it has been stated (and proven) that this particular forum is not only for fan-art of various sorts, but for all discussions of art, whether 'fan-' or not.

    OK; I'll share a poem or two of mine when I finish writing one, although you should take any self-aggrandizing statements I ever make with more than a bit of salt.

    Well, I wrote a poem a while back.....alright, a couple weeks ago, and i havent gotten around to posting it. Any who, i normally dont share my poems which kinda defeats the whole purpose, but i shall post one. ^_^

    Confusion

    My emotion is not clear
    If sorrow I would have shed a tear.
    Happiness was never it,
    If it were so, then why does a smile not fit?
    Anger was never my brother
    Hatred was never towards another.
    As i sit and ponder,
    My mind can only wonder
    What this thing is that taunts me so?
    I must, I must know!
    Why must it haunt me from within?
    What did I do? What was my sin?
    The answer came slow,
    But i did eventually know.
    The answer was near,
    So why then did i have so much fear?
    Why this thing i could not find,
    I must have been blind.
    Although my mind thought it an illusion,
    It was just a common thing that is called confusion

    Hope you liked it, if not.....sorry for wasting your time.
    I don't talk much....

    <b><u>Squeals</b></u> by Crotanks

    A body full of curves
    and of beautiful tone
    The most beautiful neck,
    for which my fingers are to caress
    As she makes some of the most
    beautiful noises one could ever hear.

    Her tone raises as my fingers wrap around her neck
    Making her squeal and screech in delight
    As I pluck all of the right strings
    To make her do as I wish.

    Upon the end of "our time"
    I place her gently on the bed,
    As a man should do a woman,
    And run a single finger down her neck
    To the end of her body.

    Then, I clean the guitar and put it up.

    Freya by Warsaw Pact

    Hail Freya! You comfort me in my sadness,
    You guide me though the darkness and light of love.
    I pray for Your favor so I may never face You in shame.
    I pray for your guidance when my heart is broken.
    To look for love without Your blessing is no different than sailing without a compass.
    Gold, amber, wine, flowers, honey, fire, iron, and passion are all Yours.
    Let all things acknowledge this.

    Sig by Comrade Rupert.

    (((Very loose freeverse poem that came to mind :) Replies are more than welcome! ^.^)))



    Sweet Escape

    Nothing would have changed

    My mind that day; not luck,

    Love, or endless torrent of lust

    So red. Not his touch, his

    Smile or laugh so kind.

    Would I be content with such

    Endearing promise? With heartfelt

    Light and power of passion.

    Would that lock that keeps

    Me hidden away break at

    Such fair and innocent

    Delight? Or would I perish

    In shadow of trick and

    Deceit, when words so

    Sweet dissolve into bitter

    And false euphoria.

    Would my dreams of

    Sweet escape and release

    Be brought to life, or

    Would they be squandered

    By cruel and cold voids that

    Are his lieng eyes. No, his

    Poison will falter to meet

    My strength, not this time

    Will I lose my sight.

    Nothing will change

    My mind this day,

    Not love . . .
    Join me in my journey to ultimate power! :)

    i exist in fantasy highway
    i exist in tree felling machine

    the famine maggots eat second courses
    while i eat a third of
    KFC brand potato flavored glop and
    manufactured chicken

    nothing is green
    in the land of the dead
    pillowmonsters smother
    winter children

    i exist in tree felling machine
    i exist in fantasy highway

    Well now I feel stupid for forgetting that this thread exists. >_<

    I'll have to remember next time if my rhyming habits persists.

    Not to waste the opportunity.

    Cross the Line

    Sittin here feeling breezy my mind is easy
    Thinkin' about what could be this night
    My mind gets crazy as it tries to fight
    keeping my thoughts from turning to you

    There's a line that's fading away so quickly
    I try so hard to keep it within sight
    But do I want to? Do i really Want to?
    Do I want to stay on that line or follow you away into so much more


    Paths fade as we walk upon them
    So many steps and you can only go so far
    But when the path dissapears will you be there at the end
    Will you be there to take me as I take you and will we fall into a dream?


    Cross the line and make me your lover
    Let's put aside all the clutter and be one together
    I'll take your heart and give you mine
    And we'll drift away with the sun into the divine

    Once there was a guy named Tony, who always wanted a Pony.
    One day, he got his dream animal, small and equine. To Tony, the joy was genuine.

    Alas, dreams die, and I cannot lie: A knight, not so bright, came and rode Tony's steed. Alas, the pony is not the sturdiest of breeds.
    Tony, wracked with grief, became a summoner, a conjurer of mystical creatures and then acted as their their chief.

    Upon facing the knight on his quest, made Tony a request: "Apologize, lest you fight with my best!"
    Dis after dis did the knight retort, like a sailor on a port you wouldn't miss: "Enough prattle, prepare for battle!"

    Tony's mystical abilities came to fruition, for them he had to toil and train. But no train would suffice for the brain of Tony.
    Quoth Tony: "The decisive treason brought by the ancient scrolls of Dar, fall down, ancient messengers! And that's precisely the reason why that car is off-limits to all passengers!"
    Then, about to cast Shoat, came along Charlemagne and quoth: "Dude, we're on a boat."

    Tony was flabbergasted, and how! The knight was free to deliver a killing blow, cackling with glee. And then he went to eat pie. In the sky. With a crust of rye. Oh why.

    Okay here's a piece of poetry. It's rpg related and in paraghra formate.

    Vivi: Standing in the Water

    Though I nearly died that day. I survived only to have my innocence shattered. A child for ten years, now a man. The empire rebuilt, when it all could have ended. The sacrifices made, the romances ended. Abandoned by my friends; for what they thought was my end. Iíve traveled long and hard to find them but only to find that the roomers of their whereabouts, were just that. So now I search still hoping that they didnít meet their doom the same day that they thought my death, my sleep, my stopping was near. I did not! Instead of death I was met with rebirth. Now I stand not in the shadow of my enemy but above them. No longer scared, No longer timid, search for my love, Eiko. I search for my friends, Zidane, Steiner, Blank, and all those other played hearty friends. I search for my queen. May my search not end in vain, for all the heart ship I have endured. I have survived, may my peace not be shattered.
