RE: Poets' Corner (Serious Poems)
So this poem is reflecting upon a situation I am in right now. It's fairly straight-forward, nothing special, just rhyming, but I'm satisfied with it.


She's out of reach, she wants another
I know that I should not bother
But when I'm alone I always find
That she stays here in my mind

I should be glad that she found joy
After all I'm just a boy
Despite all this I want her though
My love for her just tends to grow

But I won't have her, she doesn't want me
So a secret my love will be
I'll be her friend and make her smile
And be happy for a while

RE: Poets' Corner (Serious Poems)
My knees bore the weight of every inch of my life!

I tried to send that desperate guilt to Heaven and slip, through the keyhole of the back door, like a snake!

But my knees bore the oppressive weight!

I cried for God, Snake, dead Mother, Father, murdered brother, any of Heaven's children to take my pox ridden hand and deliver me to the one, true, place of comfort!

But my knees bore the weight.

My knees dug into the mud of Heaven and begged for an open door. A crack, a crevice, a speck of comfort and forgiveness.

A simple, pox ridden hand, from He who feeds and gives sanctuary, and promise's that bygone days will sleep forever.

But my knees bled for the masses.

I wept for the dear, the deeply loved, the departed. And I fell to my knees.

"He" was above me and was lost in thoughts of vengeance as I crawled. As I hoped, begged, wept for my knees, the masses, the blood that coagulated and found no end to it's weathered, endless and glorious endless universe.

While I sunk to all that is deep an strange.

And bore the weight.

RE: Poets' Corner (Serious Poems)
Since I forgot to lay my had on my brothers back: Can I get a "Pass"?

I didn't tell him that he spread beauty when the essence of his life and depth dripped into the ocean of the void.

I was so beautiful that I didn't know he was full of the Earth, floating above me. Blessing every notion I had. Gifting me and asking me to look up and see!

I was so beautiful! So keen, So Cute! So right and so relevant!

I might have held him and whispered love and joy to the depths of his being. Fed him and filled him with the strength of the future!

But I forgot. I was so beautiful!

When I talk to myself, I am amazed at the brilliance that surrounds me!

The void slips away, behind the concise, perfect, and virulent beauty of all I share with myself!

All of my rigid ideas are spot on, immaculate and give me a hard on!


When I talk to myself, I am amazed at the brilliance that surrounds me!

And then I talk to the denizens of the dirty Earth. Pigs! Poverty stricken minds! Sleepy rabbits.

Here I am! Above you! 8 miles high! Always pleasantly, comfortably, sleeping on the blanket of God's will!

Why sneak up behind me, asking questions?

Titled: Untitled. (Or, 'You May Think it's Shit, But I Don't' or simply, 'The Shit' )

white prism of light
turns rainbow
expanse into umbrae

FLUFF!

do no unkind
fall not
cast no shadow

pronounce sparkle
tender love
reach the heavens

feel through the fog
through mist
through any single drop

dreams can catch
wishes grow
eternal heart beats.

Wouldn't have been the same without the white text. First stanza almost requires it. Very nice milady. Thumbsup

Zat's been missing out some very good shit here lately just 'cause his delicate sensibilities get occasionally offended. Tongue

Breathing - it's more art than science.

I know, I know! Like Girly said... I couldn't resist. If you highlight the whole thing it's a bit easier. Shy

Didn't know I could do that. Thanks! Couldn't see the white text very well.

"I know, I know! Like Girly said... I couldn't resist. If you highlight the whole thing it's a bit easier."

Thanks. I didn't know I could do that.

I know I'm about to commit a literary sin, by giving my interpretation of your poem, but I'm going for it anyways! If you're like me, you may not be completely sure what it means, yourself.

But here it goes! All who wish may send out the hounds!

Anyways:

I see the white prism of light, turning into a rainbow, then to umbrae as God. Hence the FLUFF! response (from you?)

The rest I see as aspiration's we can strive for ourselves. . . .?
