All the more reason to post, so we can mock you. Laughat


Just kidding. If there is something you like and are proud of, who cares what the topic is about. I don't think Johnny REALLY thinks that kittehs are twisting his mind...then again, that might not be a good example. Undecided
Alright... Hold up.... I'll be right back with one.

RE: Poets' Corner
Oh how I've fallen
by ~Atothetheist

Oh, how I've fallen

I was flying so high

looking, not down,

but up towards the sky

But my wings were broken

so I went down

With only one tear in my eye

Now I'm on my knees

Crying, wishing for God to let me fly again

"God, please"

Oh,how I've fallen

No need to weep

just fall back asleep

for your pity is something I could never keep

oh, How I've fallen

you're still crying

I can hear

how come?

When, to you, the skies are so near

I'm on the ground

where hateful around me are abound

Oh, how I've fallen

I am a disgrace

I don't deserve

God's Holy Grace

I have fallen so low

that every one here only says one word "No"

I want to fly

but I fear that if I try agian

I will die

because with me so low and you so high

I could never reach you

so why bother doing something I can never do

Still, I love you.

oh, How I've fallen.


( Ohmy Unsure Blink ..... The shit I wrote when I was a fundie..... Not bad stuff looking back, but now it makes me facepalm)

Having written a praise song or three back in the day, I feel your pain.
Still, nothing wrong with being able to look back at what was once important to you. Poetry captures the moment, and that was a real moment in time for you, even if the subject itself isn't so real. Thumbsup

RE: Poets' Corner
Almost Forgotten

We are even
or so it seems
but then,
I’ve had so many dreams.

The time has gone
passed
coldly through
when
all my thoughts were thoughts
of you.

But,
wakened by alarming chimes
think gently
on more rosy times

And try to stir
a drunken head from
sodden pillow
on frantic bed.

I enjoyed this poem very much. I felt it did a great job of shaping and giving color to a single moment in time which also encompassed an entire relationship. Not to mention the rhythm and meter is wonderful and it is pleasant to read aloud. Thank you.

Here's one I wrote a bit ago:

Our Nature

Trees are vertical when they're alive,
horizontal when they are dead;
much like people.
Though people
can be
horizontal
when they're asleep
or get conked on the head.
This is akin to feigning a death,
and often when some people die
they get all burned up
like the trees
they cut down
when they want to be warmer and dry.
Often for shelter are wooden logs used
when their reapers desire security.
And when some people die
they get buried
in trees

to disintegrate to earthly obscurity.

"Tom, answer me true, now."
"Answer what true?"
"Whatever happened to happy endings?"
"They got them on shows at Saturday matinees."
-Dandelion Wine, Ray Bradbury

RE: Poets' Corner
Catching Up


For so long,
we’ve been saying:
“We must catch up”.

For so long,
we’ve missed each other,
been missing each other.

So caught up
in the moments.
So caught up
in ‘today’.

But from today,
there are no more moments.

For today,
death courted you,
caught you.

Today
was the day to remember you

Today
was the day to catch up
with those who missed you too.

Today,
At last,
we
catch on;
live life as you did,
full
forgiving
and free.

For in no time

we all
will be catching up
with you.

RE: Poets' Corner
Erasmus - 1802 - Temple of Nature

Ere Time began, from flaming Chaos hurl'd
Rose the bright spheres, which form the circling world;
Earths from each sun with quick explosions burst,
And second planets issued from the first.
Then, whilst the sea at their coeval birth,
Surge over surge, involv'd the shoreless earth;
Nurs'd by warm sun-beams in primeval caves
Organic Life began beneath the waves.
"First HEAT from chemic dissolution springs,
And gives to matter its eccentric wings:
With strong REPULSION parts the exploding mass,
Melts into lymph, or kindles into gas.
ATTRACTION next, as earth or air subsides,
The ponderous atoms from the light divides,
Approaching parts with quick embrace combines,
Swells into spheres, and lengthens into lines.
Last, as fine goads the gluten-threads excite,
Cords grapple cords, and webs with webs unite;
And quick CONTRACTION with ethereal flame
Lights into life the fibre-woven frame. --
Hence without parent by spontaneous birth
Rise the first specks of animated earth;
From Nature's womb the plant or insect swims,
And buds or breathes, with microscopic limbs.

ORGANIC LIFE beneath the shoreless waves
Was born and nurs'd in ocean's pearly caves;
First forms minute, unseen by spheric glass,
Move on the mud, or pierce the watery mass;
These, as successive generations bloom,
New powers acquire and larger limbs assume;
Whence countless groups of vegetation spring,
And breathing realms of fin and feet and wing.
The Temple of Nature (1802) Canto I.V lines 295-302
