a bit off the general topic, but here's one of mine

St. Valentine's Robin

Your eye, bright with curiosity,
Head cocked, calculating,
My small worth, to be paid in trust.

We blink you and I,
And the transaction is made.
Spidery birdfeet on matchstick legs,
Flex briefly to grip a forefinger.
A flicker of red, a flutter,
And you are gone.

But,

A glance at my palm reveals,
My nine sunflower seeds,
Reduced to eight: my receipt.
Proof that, for a single moment,
I held you, in your minute perfection.

In the palm of my right hand.

WF

A bare reflection haunts the mirror,
No patterning or colour,
Just a canvas for the artistic self loather.
A palette of distinguising features,
And a line to define,
And to add precision,
Around the glass that views the world.
Shields, they hide the glass from pain,
But blackened to be lucious,
And to do what butterflies do best.
But a parting coated in the blood red beauty,
With a shimmer of light that sparkles,
In the sun of noon,
And open to be blinded once more by bright white,
Enamel upon society.
Make up upon purity.

Hate me Now

Come on
You can do better than that
No?
You dont despise me enough?
You dont want to hurt me anymore?
Well
I actually quite like your hate
Cos i hate you
And you hate me
Hate me now
Please
You can all hate me
But you did used to love me
Right?
What is the problem?
You want my friendship now?
Youre sorry...
Thats not good enough
Me and you are through
mate
I dont care what the hell you want to say
Today is my day and of all days i want to say
I hate you and please, hate me now

This Is What You Did To Me

You lied to me for some time
I thought you loved me
But you deceived me
And now you're no longer seeing me

You told lies for fun
Made me believe them all
And what it comes down to
Is the fact that you made me fall

I can't believe you did that
You lied and cheated
But a player gets played
And you will get defeated

I loved you
And it hurts to know my feelings weren't returned
And I have had so much pain from you
And many times I have been burned

I will overcome the pain
It's already starting to fade
I will become a better person from this
And I will start to have better days

Have a nice life, hun
It was nice knowing ya, NOT
I hope you stop using people the way you did
Oh yeah, and one more thing, I hope you ROT


Lol...sorry but thats dedicated to my idiot of an ex

I love a poem by Rabbie (Robert) Burns - A Red, Red Rose.

A Red, Red Rose

O my Luve's like a red, red rose,

That's newly sprung in June:

O my Luve's like the melodie,

That's sweetly play'd in tune.


As fair art thou, my bonie lass,

So deep in luve am I;

And I will luve thee still, my dear,

Till a' the seas gang dry.


Till a' the seas gang dry, my dear,

And the rocks melt wi' the sun;

And I will luve thee still, my dear,

While the sands o' life shall run.


And fare-thee-weel, my only Luve!

And fare-thee-weel, a while!

And I will come again, my Luve,

Tho' 'twere ten thousand mile!

This is one of mine:

Oh thou fiery balls of light
Descend and shine through the night
And sparkle thou, shine on
Till daylight it doth come along
Distant from the Earth thou art
The sky and heaven doth keep us apart
And I stare up at thou in wonder
Thy beauty takes me under
Could one such as I
Dare capture your essence from the sky?

I don't usually write them in that type of language, but sometimes I get inspired to do something a little different.
Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.

Normally my poems are light and breezy but this one explores the dark side of daft poetry

"The Poem" by Vladimir I Beschastnykh

The poem, a poem
that stands high on mountain high
like an ugly raven it floats to the sea
How? you ask How can a poem float?
It's a metaphor, you swine
Dye your hair, it'll still fall out
Drive a car, choke to death
oh death, oh glorious death
oh hideous fate befalls us
oh death oh death oh death
death death death

Damned those who steal
but are forgiven as it is collar of white
Those who choke us for penny and life
Those who stub a fag in our proverbial faces
Yes, you know who I'm talking about
and no, It's not the Israelis (there's a swipe for them later)
Yes, it is the blood-sucking ill of the corporate pound
running us into the ground with a proverbial tractor

Israelis, why why why? oh why
fall ten times curse on it, ten times curse
a plague a both your houses
Call me
call me
I'm still here
you moved.....swine
Oh bitter death
oh, I'm going to go home and put on a pair of big boots
black nail polish, black clothes, listen to guff music
like the others and strangely call myself original
Originality? Give me the key

Love, like a thorn
sticks in my anus
not in the homosexual way
I do not roll like that
Love, like hell
moves in beside me
blights my life
kills my liver

bye
Last night I dreamt that somebody loved me.

oh what the heck.
i wrote this for my free verse assignment at uni
10/10 for pretension at least...

The Day before the Revolution

Under foot
We are shadow, smoke, subtle reflection
Background noise to the roar
Of everyone else

What people don’t know
We are sleeping
The power of a giant
The strength found in solitude

Soon, it will be upon you
Creeping like the spread of rot
Staring at your skull from behind
The imagined sound of someone
Calling your name

Then
You will see us everywhere
The face on the billboard
The woman on the tube
Will take on the visage
Of your reoccurring nightmare

And the next stage
Gross on opinion and without resistance
Our cocoons of conformity will split
And you like moths
Will be draw to the glow
Of our intelligence

We were always there
Stood in your blind spot
The out of focus figure in the photo
The sound at the edge of your hearing
A subtle shift in perception
And we are real again

It takes no effort to make you see in our ways
March in our footprints
Strength is power
Power breeds desire
You love us

And you will fall into new routine
And do, and think, and say
And be
As if you always were
Only these are our ways now

And very soon
There was no revolution
The tide of the years has smothered
Where we were dragged through the sand
The outcry lost
In time’s keen hustle

You block out the change that scares you
Difference is terror
And this will be our weapon against you
Until fresh dissent
Starts the cycle again

(extra marks if you can spot the bits i nicked from songs)

You say it's gonna happen now...but what exactly do you mean? 'Cos I've already waited too long, and all my hope is gone...

You sat there staring
I sat there wondering
wondering what it's like
to light up someones life
a ray of hope in a void of melancholy

You sit there smiling
Your smile to light up my day
Your smile to light up my life
I wonder how you feel

Time, like love lies heavy on my heart;
my heart driven by childish dreams
allows itself to be corrupted
into something non-understandable

But for now, this moment in time
a dove sits light upon my shoulder
allows my heart to rest
allows my mind to regain control

Then an eagle swoops down, takes the dove
my heart in anarchy, killing itself
a red rose turns black
the sky, once blue turns grey

All I see is your smile
A fix for the pain

Its not the best, some imagery is off, but it was done quickly. The eagle isnt meant to represent evil nor the rose meant to represent the heart going cold, just a change in the way it percieves things.

As you walked through the door,
My heart sank
I want so much more
I want you, yet you can't

I opened my heart
I let you in
We need not depart
Feels so good, but like a sin

Maybe it is too much for you?
Just let us be
Words, 'I love you too'
Crossed my mind everytime you spoke your soft words to me

I fell,
Fell for the charm
Tell me, all i want you is to share...tell
There was no harm

Yet, it hurts so much
Hold me in your arms just once more
There is no love now as such
We need another mystery tour

Regain what we lost,
I'll forever be your rose,
Before you know it we will be making a toast
That is it I suppose?

You threw it away
The world stopped
Our date at the bay,
We kissed, my leg popped.


OK, I am going to stop there before i completely ruin poetry.
