Hi :wave Uh....I are very nervous indeed :paranoid

I really hope you like my poems. If you don't, please say why (If I don't know than I can't grow) but if you do, please say why as well because, ya know...compliments are always appreciated. I think I'm starting to get the hang of being a kitten. At least, a kitten insofar as this website is concerned. I've been a kitten in the "I meow at people, purr when I'm happy and curl up into people's laps" sense for a lot longer. Erm....none of this has anything to do with my poetry. I'll uh....yeah, I'll get to that in just a second. Actually, I guess I'll just leave this as my introduction and I'll start posting poetry below this. So, uh, yeah....here goes.

This one is a bunch of my poems. Like...a whole big ole bunch. But, hopefully they're a good bunch. :)

MY VOICE

It's been a while
So long ago
Since I wrote on myself
Since I had things to say
Things to say that maybe
No one else would hear
Or could hear
And now I've found
My voice again
I'm saying so much more
Than I used to say
Since I lost my voice
So long ago
My voice is....home
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

NO MORE THOUGHTS TO THINK

It seems as though I start to find
A lack of things to say
And on those days I start to think
There has to be some way
To see a silver lining
I'm sure it's best to just
Not say anything at all
Instead of losing trust
Trust in other people
And then their trust in me
But then I realize a truth
I hadn't really seen
I had found that I, in fact
Did have something to say
All along I'd held a thought
That begged to find its way
Out into the world
For everyone to see
No, not the thought, I realize
I want them to see me
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

MAYBE I'LL ELABORATE

The poison in my soul
The drag in my step
Maybe I'll elaborate

The tears in my eyes
The break in my heart
Maybe I'll elaborate

The storm in my sky
The shadow in my dreams
Maybe I'll elaborate

She broke my heart
Be still these tears
That haunt my dreams
With needless fears
Of dark storms rising
Soul is dead

She is the drag in my step
She is the drag in my step
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I LONG FOR LASTING LOVE

I long for a lasting love
As deep as ocean trenches
A scabbard to the sword of love
Bury in me to the hilt
Plunging into the deepest, darkest
Recesses of my soul
Wrapping itself, serpentine
Round and round my aching heart

I'm slowly losing faith in love
The loss, it cuts me like a knife
The precious drops of ruby red
Dripping, draining, spilling out
Weakening with every step
I falter, now I'm falling down
I can't sustain this quest for love

Will no one ever quest for me?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

FOR HER

Why must it always end like this?
A heartfelt goodbye, sealed with a kiss.
Why can't I find the one who will stay?
Why do they always go away?
Am I not desirable to you?
Why do you not want me the way you used to?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

HAIKU

Here I am unsure
Of what I should do about
These issues of mine

How am I supposed
To get her to realize
That I want her so

Or does it matter
When ultimately the choice
Is not mine to make?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

WISHING

Every wish on every star
On dandelions too
Is sadly more than likely
Never ever coming true

Every wish on every star
Is hope in something more
A hope that likely, sadly
Is not worth hoping for

I wish upon a dandelion
Plucked it from the ground
Hoping, wishing, wanting
For my wishes to come 'round

I wish upon a falling star
That never comes true
What's worse in this is that
I was wishing for you
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

SAID THE DAMSEL OF HER DRAGON

So many choices and voices racing about
That I could scream from frustration and still never make it
To the place where I find that the darkness is falling and my eyes are adjusting
And I hide in the shadows and I'm safe from the bad ones
Who would strike in an instance and take everything with it
All that I hold dear and it's coming I fear
But its now or its never and I won't let it ever
Take me or break me or make me afraid
I'll stand tall and I'll fight and I'll make it tonight.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

DYING

Everybody looks at me
But they don't know what to say
They don't know if I will die
Or if I'll live to see the day
When the skies are blue
Or will I die when skies are gray
They don't know if I'm alright
But I'm gonna be okay

Because to die is to be free
So why can't they let me be
Slip into that nothingness
Into that place I want to be
It's somewhere I want to go
With someone or on my own
Because I've finally had enough
I think I have lived to much

And so now I lay me down
For my final breath
And I close my eyes and sigh
"Thank God, now I can finally rest"
And that's when I realize
How great life has really been
I don't know why I complained
Quite as often as I did
But, I'll rest my head
Lay upon my bed
Breathe my final breath
And finally welcome death
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Looking Glass

You are to me a looking glass
A lens I use to view myself
To scrutinize my every fault
To learn the ways I can evolve

I realize now the way we've changed
The way that you now look at me
You do not want me in that way
That you wanted me that day

Or all those days preceding this
I spiral into the abyss
Recognizing subtle shifts
In the lens I'm viewing with

And now I'm in the darkness deep
The darkness I forever keep
Within myself for no one else
To see the way I see myself
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

FUCKING DOORMAT

I'll be your fucking doormat
If it means you care
I'll do whatever you want
Just to keep you here
I'll tell you anything
That makes you wanna stay
I'll be your fucking doormat today

I'll be your stepping stool
If it makes you love me
I'll follow all your rules
You're so high above me
The way you saw me there
I never stood a chance
My strength is my weakness
When it comes to romance

I'm too much of a gentleman
To let the lady see
That all I want is someone
Who'll take care of me

I'll give myself to you
So, I hope you want me
Even if it isn't true
Well, too bad you've got me
I'll make whatever wish
You've ever had come true
I'll give all of myself to you

I've given you so much
I've nothing left to give
And yet you're still the reason
That I breath
That I live
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ON MY FIRST TIME WITH HER

When you let me taste your tender flesh
At first I felt a tinge of guilt
A feeling that I’d crossed a line
And yet, I couldn’t help myself

I was shaky right at first
And then I felt the feeling pass
Things had settled once again
It was like it had never been

And then you made that face again
The one that you make only when
You’re thinking something mischievous
A face I have come not to trust

To be anything other than
A harbinger of trouble and
I realize now that I was right
You had mischief on your mind that night

And in true geeky fandom form
You quoted Harry Potter’s charm
For being, himself, mischievous
“Mischief managed” and so it was

You pulled me down on top of you
Assuming I’d know what to do
And yet, I’d know idea, then
You bared your neck to me again

“A proper bite” is what you said
I let those words sink in my head
And then my teeth into your neck
All I could think was “what the heck?”

I figured nothing more would come
Of the biting on its own
I don’t see how I could have known
The way that biting would have grown

You moaned with pleasure every time
I altered or deepened the bite
You scratched your nails down my back
A feeling I have come to lack

In recent times, though I enjoy
The pleasure that the pains employ
To distract from unpleasantness
A feeling I won’t really miss

For no unpleasantness, felt I
No, only pleasures felt on my
Back when down your nails came
To bring me pleasure with the pain
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I love this collection of poems! You have really good rhythm, and they all flow so well. I'm actually partial to Wishing, though I Long for Lasting Love has fantastic imagery. Please post more in the future if you have any!

Here's a stack of "love" poems about my first girlfriend (mostly after the break up)

AN ODE TO A LOVER’S LOVE SCORNED

I’ll never again say “I love you”
I’ll never again say “you’re mine”
If ever again you should love me
Know that you left love behind
You’ll never again hear my laughter
You’ll never again see my smile
If ever again you should want me
Know that I waited a while
I hope that you feel the way I do
I hope you weren’t lying to you
If you can’t get over love lost
Know that I did and I’m through
I’m through with the pain in my stomach
I’m through with the pain in my heart
I’m finished with feeling this torment
Self-torture that you helped to start
You’re lying to none but yourself now
You’re lying to no one but you
When you come out of denial
You’ll be all alone with the truth
That you had love and you left it
That you hurt someone you loved
That she grew bitter and hates you
And you’ve no one to blame but yourself
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ATLAS IS ME

Be it thou known
That on this day
Hearts will shatter
Split in two
Hearken on this soul
I view
Your love as deadly
Painful too
A burden on my life
And shoulders
This is you
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BITTERSWEET

A bittersweet memory
Is all that I am left to view
Fragmented mirror pieces
Reflect images of you
Distorted, warped and twisted
And yet, I know I knew
The 'you' I thought was perfect
Was in my head, she wasn’t true

A sweet and bitter pill to take
I swallow and I stand
Upon my feet and say out loud
'Yes, I will love again'
Labyrinth of distortion
I’m lost inside your head
But cannot make out any of
The thoughts or words you’ve said

A shallow pool of consciousness
I’m drowning nonetheless
Consider it a product of
Long nights of lovelessness
My heart is beating in my throat
Because of all this stress
I pray to God and only hope
That he can make me love you less
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CONSISTENCE

Constantly
Constance
Consistently mine
My Constance she loves me
But make love go blind
Blindly this Cupid
Consistently plagues
My love with his bad
Decisions
Mistakes
Constantly
Constance
Consistently mild
Doubtlessly darling
I’m doubly beguiled
Constance she loves me
But make love go right
Make waves in this ocean
Stand to and we fight
For this consistent
Constance of mine
To be mine
For all time
Consistence divine
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

HOLD ME, THRILL ME, KISS ME, KILL ME

Kill me softly in my sleep
Let me slip into goodbye
Pull your knife out of my back
And just hold me while I die

If you torture me I’ll die
If you nurture me I’ll thrive
Why is it you want me gone
But you’re keeping me alive

Kill me quick or not at all
Nurture me or let me fall
Didn’t you think I’d find out
That you never loved me at all
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

IF

If I had a nickel for every day that I hated you
I would be rich beyond dreams
If I had a cook for every dream that you shattered of mine
I’d have meals fit for kings
If I had a man for every time that you’ve hurt me
I would have an army
If I had a woman for every time that you’ve left me
You’d be the one then you’d leave

Yes, these are things that I will never have
Wealth and power galore
And yet if I did I’d have given them all up
Just to have you as I had once before
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

LOVE SICK

Here is my confession
You’re the strongest of obsessions
You have my affection
And you give me satisfaction
To me you’re an affliction
And such is my prediction
That this predilection
Is merely an infection
A negative inflection
To the point of my subjection
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

LOVER’S WINGS

My lover lives in a land I know
But a land I cannot ever go
To or see
But in my dreams
I’ll go there
Up
Fly upon wings
Ethereal
Effervescent
Everything I touch or see
Seems to only make me think
Of the lover that I leave
In this land
Within my dreams
Fly to my love
Gossamer wings
Fly to my love
Ethereal things
Fly to my love
Loving she brings
Love to my heart
Strength to these wings
To fly to her
Up to ethereal things
Cry to her
Down she won’t come from my dreams
Die for her
And for the love that she brings
I fly to my love
On ethereal wings
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

REGRET

In my deepest
Heart of hearts
I’ve been known to keep

A secret hidden
Longing for
A better part of me

It’s as though
The better half
Of me has flown away

And I’ll try
And hopefully
Will bring it back someday

Her heart was mine
My soul was hers
The two of us could’ve made it I swear

Our love was real
Or so I thought
Maybe I was wrong to care

Only of
My selfish want
I wanted her for me

She had thought
Things would get weird
Who could know how right she’d be
‘Cause there should’ve never been a “we”
Between her and me
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

STAR CROSSED LOVE

In the passing of the stars
Two crossed as falling
Fading out

In the harking angels song
Two fell as loving
Wrongly so

In the wronging of the hearts
Two souls coupled
Sweetly thus

In the coupling of the souls
Two hearts shattered
Glass to dust
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

TO LOVE? OR NOT TO LOVE? OH, NOT TO LOVE INDEED!

Love!
It’s the way we behave
As if, as if we were all
Slaves?
Yes, slaves
To this feeling
The one we cannot
Fight!
Though we try
Though we try we cannot
Cannot?
No, can’t
We just can’t escape
Cry!
Will you?
Die!
If for your loves sake
Will you?
Oh, will you?
I doubt that
I do
I say that I would
But I doubt it
Would you?
Would you throw your life
Away for your love?
Or are you important enough
To yourself to stand and say
I love me more anyway
I could never love anyone more than me
So I say, “let it be”
But, I lie, can’t you see?
There is none as bad as me
Pathetically afflicted
Sardonically affected
Optimistically anointed
With a tomb for love erected
Love is dead
“And Jesus wept”
I knew no love, and so I slept
My life away, and day by day
My end drew nearer, life grew clearer
But it was too late anyway
I’d wasted life for love that day
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Another wonderful set! I've said it before and I'll say it again -- you're really, seriously, talented. And If you're not published, you should look into it sometime.

Thank you both. Actually, I'm not published and have no idea how to go about getting my work published. I didn't think there was much demand for poetry books what with the internet being flooded with poetry as it is. haha. But, I'll look into it. :)

I've been published in many anthologies,can't remember the exact number.
Check out Forward Poetry on Facebook. You'll find a link to their website to submit poems to forthcoming anthologies.

True to my word I am ^^ I read them all, and even though some of them didn't move anything in me, others sounded and felt amazing. You have a true talent, please keep it going :peace

Thank you, KiWy darling.

I admire your honesty. :) And it's okay if they didn't all move you. You know that saying about 'You can fool some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time', right? It's kinda like that. I can move some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time and to me the most important part is that I moved someone somewhere at some point. :) <3

Also, I'm been thinking of opening this up to my song lyrics as well, but I'm not sure. What do you think? Make a separate thread for song lyrics, just post them here or don't post them at all?

Just a few songs


NOTHING AT ALL
I don't know why I bother
To wake up everyday
Not like the things I do are ever
Worth the time it takes
To even rise and take a shower
To even come awake
It's like all of my time is devoured
By nothing at all
My friends and family don't get it
They think I'm insane
And I know that I would just regret if
I tried to explain
That all the good that they're projecting
All the good they see
Is just some mass hallucination
It just isn't me
And when I look in the mirror
It's that nothing I fear
It's like I'm just a great black hole
Nothing good comes from me
And it's out of my control
So I'll just hide away
Behind computer screens
And I waste away my day
It's kind of obscene
How I won't let anybody see
The deeper side of me
Like all my insecurities
About being nothing
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

WHAT YOU MEAN TO ME
I look in your eyes
I see the sunrise
Smiling back at me
You think you're nothing
But I'll tell you something
You mean the world to me
And I don't care
What you think you see
I don't care
If you think you're nothing
You're insane
That's what it's gotta be
How else can you
Not see what I see
In you
Some thought they knew you
But they looked right through you
And they missed the best part
They failed to see
What's so plain to me
When they missed your heart
And I don't care
What those others say
It's not my job
To please them anyway
You're the one
Who amazes me
So, I won't rest
Until you see
What I do
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GIRL OF YOUR DREAMS
The beating of my heart is like a drum
I'm marching through this life completely numb
If there's a way to change it tell me how
Otherwise I'll have to leave you now
I know your heart
Can't take
The pain of having it break
But my heart
Won't feel
Anything for you unless it's real
You were the unwritten song in my heart
That says things aren't as bad as they seem
I got over you
And you'll get there too
I'm not the girl of your dreams
No, trust me
I'm not the girl of your dreams
The falling of your tears is like a drain
That pulls me deep into your well of pain
I know you think I made a big mistake
Believe me that I did this for your sake
I know my heart
Can't take
The pain of seeing yours break
But your heart
Will feel
The difference between this and what is real
You were the unwritten song in my heart
That says things aren't as bad as they seem
I got over you
And you'll get there too
I'm not the girl of your dreams
No, trust me
I'm not the girl of your dreams
Yeah, this songs for you
But, it's for me too
Helps me to think I've done well
But, that's just a lie
And I'll tell you why
I realized that life without you is hell
So, I'll sing a song
Just to get along
Denial is a powerful thing
If I say I'm well
It means I'm in hell
Without you and the joy that you bring
You were the unwritten song in my heart
That says things aren't as bad as they seem
You got over me
As we both can see
I'm not the girl of your dreams
No, and now
You're with the girl of your dreams
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

LISTEN TO ME
I talk, but am I speaking?
If I’m not alive, in your eyes
I walk, but where am I going?
As I pull away, you can hear me say
Listen to me
Listen to me
Listen to me, to me
Listen to me
Listen to me
Listen to me, to me
I’m here, but am I really?
If you cannot see, if you’re blind to me
I’m gone, but wasn’t I always
You were too unaware, to notice or to care to
Listen to me
Listen to me
Listen to me, to me
Listen to me
Listen to me
Listen to me, to me
Now I’m walking away
Why would I stay
If you want to be alone
I’ll leave you on your own
I wish you’d
Listen to me
Listen to me
Listen to me, to me
But you’ll never
Listen to me
Listen to me
Listen to me, to me
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ME
Everything I am
Is not everything I ever thought I’d be
I won’t be
Defined by what I have
’Cause it’s not all I thought I would have with me
Won’t you see?
What it means to me
When you’re eternally
By my side
My side
What it seems to be
Is you’re leaving me
Torn inside
Inside
All that I let go of
I don’t miss as much as when I am getting burned
I won’t burn
Because everything I know
Is not all I know that I could ever learn
Won’t you learn?
What it means to me
When you’re eternally
By my side
My side
What it seems to be
Is you’re leaving me
Torn inside
Inside
Of me
There is a hole caused by you
It’s one depressing ride
And the only way for me to get through
Is if you’re by my side
The side of my heart that you hadn’t broken
Is so precious to me
Like all of the words that I have just spoken
Do you know what I mean
When I say?
What it means to me
When you’re eternally
By my side
My side
What it seems to be
Is you’re leaving me
Torn inside
Inside

MORTAL OBSESSIONS AND SINFUL CONFESSIONS
Sex after midnight and I
Am feeling tired but I
Can’t close my eyes because I
Want more than I can have and
I, I, I profess
I’ve got
Mortal confessions of a
Sinful obsession and
I, I, I profess
I’ve got
Mortal obsessions and a
Sinful confession come on, on, on
Come on, on, on
I’m cumming, oh
It’s so frustrated when I
Am masturbating ‘cause I
Can’t seem to find the one who
Can make me cum like you and
I, I, I profess
I’ve got
Mortal confessions of a
Sinful obsession and
I, I, I profess
I’ve got
Mortal obsessions and a
Sinful confession come on, on, on
Come on, on, on
I’m cumming, oh
Pleasure of the skin
Are the sweetest sin
Want to taste your flesh
Expose you to the very best
Carnal needs are mine
And this much I find
I want to grind you down
And fuck you straight into the ground
I, I, I profess
I’ve got
Mortal confessions of a
Sinful obsession and
I, I, I profess
I’ve got
Mortal obsessions and a
Sinful confession come on, on, on
Come on, on, on
I’m cumming, oh
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

MOST CELEBRITIES
Money always mattered to me ‘cause
I never had it but
Money doesn’t matter to them ‘cause
They have it everywhere
It really is a burden
To have to chose between
Making a little more money
And having a little dignity
I’ll bet you all know
The path of most celebrities
Privacy really don’t matter
‘Cause I’m always all alone
But privacy matters to them ‘cause
Cameras are everywhere
It really is a burden
To have to chose between
Making a little less money
Or selling your soul to a magazine
I’ll bet you all know
The path of most celebrities
Don’t they all
Just act the same
Well, I’ll be different
Even if they think I’m lame
I’ll bet you all know
The path of most celebrities
I’ll bet you all know (echo fade out)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

NEAR ENOUGH
Parting is such sorrow
So say goodbye tomorrow
Romance is so tragic
But dying is such magic
You slip away
But where do you go
And if you stay
How could you ever know
Parting is such sorrow
But the magic starts tomorrow
You’re dying alone now
Our love has gone home now
You scream and I hear you
Still no one is near you enough
Near enough to watch you die
Loving is so bad now
My life is just so sad now
Seeing you here dying
I cannot cease my crying
I’d slip away
But where would I go
And if I stay
How could I ever know
Loving is so bad now
You leave me and I’m sad now
You’re dying alone now
Our love has gone home now
You scream and I hear you
Still no one is near you enough
Near enough to watch you die
Near enough to see me cry
To know I don’t wonder why
To know I just wanna die
To know that I want you back
To know that I can’t have that
Loving is such sorrow
Don’t say goodbye tomorrow
You’re dying alone now
Our love has gone home now
You scream and I hear you
Still no one is near you enough
Near enough to watch you die
With me by your side
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

NO MATTER HOW
Close your eyes to the world
You could feel it, it’s spinning
Yeah, this lie that were living
Where we die just to fit in

But open up your mind and
You’ll see that we’re lying
To ourselves we’re denying
That inside we’re all dying

I will show to the world that I won’t be harmed
No matter how wrong you are
You’re never gonna get that far
I will show to the world that I will not scar
No matter how wrong you are
I’ll never let you get that far

Heard you cry to me one night
You said “I’ll awaken
If only for your sake and
I know life’s what you make it

And sad to say that for me
You made my life a nightmare
It’s a heartache we both share
But it feels like you don’t care

I will show to the world that I will not break
No matter how much you take
My love you cannot forsake
I will show to the world I won’t be disgraced
No matter how much I face
I’m never gonna lose my place

:) Thank you, Tina. That's actually one of my favorites from that set of poems which are actually from a book that I wrote, titled "Letters to Josephine: A Collection of Poems and Songs". Then again...self published doesn't really count. lol.
