Really? You just made it up? Well then you're a doubly good writer. I wish someone else would post already.

Someone wanted a post? =]

Here are two poems that go hand in hand.

Smile
Wait for it, I tell myself
Right, left, right, left
My steps behind the beat of my heart
Look straight ahead, I murmur
Searching through the young faces
None aware of my heavy thoughts
I see your eyes, squinting
through your barely there lashes
What, no smile for me?
The scenerio repeats not one change
What has changed?

And....

Confused.
When will you look at me again?
With a sparkle behind your eyes
Smiling.
The quick glances in class
when no one the wiser.
From high to low
a steady rhythm
I took the bait
I peaked,
You sit still.

eh, yeah kind of. It's easy to write.
This one isn't though. =]

A path so straight
couldn't be detered
Crash!
Everything is dark
no way to escpae
Flash!
Light floods from every pore
A hand reaches
trying to grab ahold of it
Fade to black.

"It Smells Like.." a free verse poem by moi

It smells like running
through the rain
holding hands at
Twilight
in the early summer
knowing it wont
Last
but enjoying the moment
because it's

there

enjoying the moment
because you

can

It smells like dreams lost
hope found
crying alone at
Night
wishing it would stop
but knowing it wont

shouldn't

or can't.

It smells like forever
and ever
and ever
and ever
and..

STOP!

It smells like loss and pain
walking into it
knowing you should turn around
but you don't
It smells like sweetnes
and tears
and JOY.

But it also smells like
LOSING CONTROL
it smells like regret.
It smells like I'm glad
and I'm sorry.

It smells like
running through the rain
BAREFOOT
holding hands at
Twilight
knowing it won't last
but enjoying the
moment
bacause you

can

because it's

THERE.

It smells like you.
Or your essence
or whatever you want to call it
but it smells like June...
or maybe May
it smells like wet
and expectations
and

longing.


and it's all over me.



Yeah, all my poems are really long, and wistful/nostalgic. I just noticed that. I'm not sure if we're supposed to, but I have a ton of poems posted in my blog, I don't think anyone would care to read them but I might post the link anyways.



oh, and here's some lyrics for songs that I wrote back when I was in a (crappy) chick band

"What Did You Expect" Puss'N'Boots

You squashed my heart beneath your heel
never showed me what was real
never taught me how to feel/ What did you expect?

You turned my brain to creamy mush
gave me that one final push/sent me with a single wish/

What did you expect?
You let me break
you made me shake
You were so fake

What did you expect?

Nevermore will I be
the way i was when you loved me
I was once so very free

What did you expect?
And you broke it/
yes you chocked it
never spoke it

What did you expect?
What did you expect?
certainly not what you got
this ghost of me

What did you expect?

"Flying and Free" Puss'N'Boots

I'm running free
I'm flying
and you can't CATCH me!
(Oh no, not this time)

I'm running free
I'm flying
exactly where I WANNA be!
oh oh oh
Not gonna find me
no shackles can bind me
Cuz I'm finally free.
As free as we'll ever be
(Uh oh, never gonna find me)

I dare you to find me
I dare you to bind me
(not gonna make it
you shouldn't even try)

I'm running free
I'm flying
and you can't CATCH me!
(I'm oh so free)

Everywhere I wanna be
Everything I wanna see
And you can't stop me!
(But feel free to join me
don't be afraid to try)

I'm gonna be
you're gonna see
I'm running free!
(wanna fly by my side?)

I'm running free
I'm flying
and you can't catch me!
(Already gone)

I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be FREE!
(just try and stop me)

Cuz I'm running free
I'm flying
and you can't catch me

I'm flying free.
((humming))
AND YOU CAN'T STOP ME

"Beyond the Looking Glass" Puss'N'Boots

Let your imagination loose.
Unless you are scared,
You can't lose.

The dreams that we dream
the thoughts we think
these are the things that cannot be seen.
Until you step across-
to the other side of the mirror.

On the other side of the mirror
Where dreams run free,
I am the queen and you are my King.
In this court of things not seen.

Upon my finger
I wear a silver ring.
That pronounces me yours
to hold and keep.
So please don't let me weep.

Beyond the looking glass
Here in this world of SOFT GREEN GRASS
life passes you fast
but here, you're never last!

Nothing ever ends
when something begins
beyond the looking glass.
You never know what's real,
You must rely on what you feel.

And wht I feel for you
Is forever and always true

"Going Crazy" Puss'N'Boots

I'm not going crazy
tell me I'm not going crazy!
Tell me what it is I feel,
tell me what's the deal.


Can you see hear me? Can you see me? Do you even care at all?
Can you free me?

Would you love me? Would you leave me? Just touch me if you need me!

But whatever you do
don't leave me

Cuz you see, I'M NOT GOING CRAZY!!!



yeah, that's a lot. Seriously, feel free to let me know when I get on your nerves, I know it's not great, nothing special and I don't expect you guys to pretend to like it.

I liked them. Well especially your poem and the lyrics for beyond the looking glass. Escellent.
Here's another one...

Her eyes obscured by the mask she wore
as he tried to read her gaze
A fire was building between them
that only a flood could smolder
They continued to dance
twist and turn around the bodies that surround
She felt like she could fly
He took no wrong step
as her dress swished around her legs
Pulling her closer, he felt the drum of her heart
beating in time with his
This was something only in a dream
the blossom of first love

well this is one i wrote, i'm not sure if i like the short or long versions better..it doesn't ryhme or have any kind of patterning to it..like most of my stuff...but here i go

ok so the long one...

Sleep now gentle soul,
Rest unto the dawn,
You shall bathe in my warmth,
And i may watch over you lovingly
And when you wake and the sky turns to gold
I should weep for the night,
And my eyes will stain black
For the night may bring us fear,
And the night may bring unto us harm
But the night is the last stand,
The night is the last reserve
The night shall survive when the days have died
And the sun gods perished
For the night gives you reason to hold me

Or the short one...

Sleep now gentle soul,
Rest unto the dawn,
And I may watch over you lovingly
And when you wake and the sky turns to gold
I should weep for the night,
For the dark gives you reason to hold me

[WARNING] This is going to be a mahoosive post.

I've written quite a lot of stuff, mostly with the thinking of how they'd work as songs, not poems. These are some of my earlier works, before I was as far into that mindset.

I Don't Know

I sit alone
Drifting through life like there’s no tomorrow
I’m all alone
And no-one else knows my sorrow
I just wish you could be by my side tonight
You’re the only good thing left in my life
But you don’t know, I never said
And it tears me up inside

But when I see you I still say nothing
Too afraid of what you might say
Nobody knows what I’m feeling
Each one feels like the longest day
I tell myself “Today’s the day”
But nothing ever happens
I wish I could say what I want
But I’m my own worst enemy

But I just don’t know what to do
I feel both dead and alive around you
I’m confused and alone
But you don’t seem to know I exist

So now this is goodbye
You’re never going to see me again
Look what you’ve forced me to do
This really is the end

Now I know what I’m gonna do
Soon I’ll just be feeling dead
I’m not confused, but still alone
You have no idea how much you mean to me

Keep Walking

I hate who I’ve become
This self-obsessed man I am
It isn’t the real me

You’ve been nothing but bad for me
Changed me in ways I didn’t think possible
But the real me is back

I’m spiteful and hate-filled
I say exactly what I think
I don’t give a crap how it makes you feel
God it feels good to be me

Hate may be a strong word
But honey, that’s how I feel
So pack your shoot, and get out my house
I don’t know what I ever saw in you

For once in your life just shut up and listen
Not everything’s about you
We’ve all got problems too
Take a look at the world, then you’ll understand

So just keep walking, don’t look back
‘Cos I won’t be watching you go
I’ll be trying to get my life on a high
After this intolerable low

Roadblocks & Stop Signs

So this is the end of the road
This long and winding road
It’s been the best time of my life
Please don’t let it end now

Yes, we’ve hit a rough patch
But we’ve pulled through worse than this
Don’t let this be the straw that breaks our back

So let’s keep building this road
Because it’s our own
Our own unique piece of time
And only we know what it felt like

When we met a roadblock
We just found a different path
If we got caught in tailbacks
We’d just sit back and laugh

You’ve been all I ever wished for
Friend, lover, sister, even mother
You’re the one for me; I hope you feel the same

So let’s keep building this road
Because it’s our own
Our own unique piece of time
And only we know what it felt like

And now we’re at a stop sign
Wondering if we’ll ever be the same again
This journey’s been incredible
Please don’t let it end now

This Is Goodbye

I’ve had enough of you
And all your lies
Enough of this
I just can’t disguise
All this hurt you’ve caused
And all the pain I feel
You tried to use me
But I said “No Deal”

I’ll shout it loud
If you can hear me now
I’ve got one thing left to say

This is goodbye
For the last time
This is goodbye
And it’s not the first time
This is goodbye
I’ve said it before
But I won’t say it again
I won’t be taken for a fool
This is goodbye
And don’t you come crawling back
"Leah, you don't like me. I don't like you"
"Thank you Captain Obvious"

Okay , i am going to make up 2 poems on the spot in 8 minutes typing it straight onto here.
Note: This will not be my best work.

Hidden

Tall,
Towering,
Shadows, breaking down the side,
The last of the day.
The trees meet the dry grass.

Sky filled with mystery,
It can't decide what colour it is.
A bang shoots the air.
I flee,
Hiding in the Shadows,
I lay,
Hidden.



Chase

I run,
They are looking,
searching,
wandering,

Clueless,

I can see the edge of the earth,
They are lost,
looking for me.

Hopeless,

The edge is tempting,
like a cliff,
and it's freedom below.
They don't know what i am going to do is,

Fearless,

I can hear them,
Stumbling,
Dumbfounded,

This,
Will be my collection of last thougts.

If i don't let go now,
If i can't find srength to jump,
I can be sure the life life i lead after
won't be fulfilled.

They are getting closer now,

Solving

I can tell my hazel eyes are filled with fear,
Black hair withering,
Tall frame quivering.

Voices are coming now,
I've got to go,

I'm sorry,

I may seem selfish,
But it's right for me.

I seem to float,
as my foot slides off the edge,
The weight is lifted,

gone,

The Pain,
Worry
is gone,

Gone forever,

I know that they are,
Stopped i their path of tragic destruction.

They can't chase anymore,
If there is nothing to chase,

And those,
are my last thoughts.




~Thanks, that it, as i said not my best work,
quick thoughts......Love Lily ....
