Post Your Poetry Thread

So as we already have a great General Art thread, I thought we could need a similar thread for posting poetry.
As I've been around this forums for some time now, I am sure that there are at least as many poets here as there are artists.

In other words: Let This Thread Be

A thread for words from heart and mind,
For pictures drawn by poetry;
A place where some of us may find
A world of true tranquillity;
Where others find a place to dive
In thoughts as raging as the sea;
Where heart and mind and spirit thrive,
'Tis what this thread is meant to be.

  • This is is the limit of my Poetic ability:
    Roses are red (But are also available in other colours)
    Violets are blue (No, there not. They're purple and it even states so in the name.)
    I've got OCD and so have you. Or should it be CDO? Since I know how some people like listing acronyms alphabetically.

  • Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    Will you go out with me
    Now I kidnapped you

  • Seven Squeaky Silhouettes
    Knock knock knock
    Only taxes and cellophane
    Hanging the filth out to dry
    Frapuccino whore?

  • The hours are passing.
    Evening falls.
    Darkness takes hold of the Land.
    Lanterns are lit in the Dark.
    Guiding the Way.
    Illuminating the Paths for weary travellers.
    Strangers in this land,
    Yet Siblings to us all.

  • Gender equality

    Get back
    Into the kitchen
    Because that is where you belong
    Fridge

  • Hostile Waters

    It’s time to tell you, you’re in danger
    Don’t look at me like I’m a stranger
    This is only a friendly warning
    Keep well away and you’ll be soaring

    I’m telling you something here is gonna break the mould
    You’ll thank me when you look back, when you are old
    It’s time, everyone, to lock up your daughters
    I’m telling you we’re entering hostile waters

    We’re entering hostile waters
    Something bad is gonna find us
    We’re deep in hostile waters
    We’d better leave before they catch us

    It’s too late to turn back now
    But we can get through I’ll show you how
    Don’t lose your way now or go too fast
    Because pretty soon you’ll be in the past

    We need to leave these hostile waters
    Or something bad is gonna find us
    We got to get through these hostile waters
    Or we’ll be letting them catch us

    Come one everybody join in with me
    We are going to leave this place you will see
    Just walk on slowly through the night
    Eventually you find a wondrous sight

    You’ll know where you are as you’ll see
    Something that you will recognise with me
    You’ll see a wondrous sight
    We’re leaving hostile waters tonight

    We’re leaving these hostile waters
    Something bad hasn’t found us
    Say goodbye to these hostile waters
    We’re leaving before they catch us

    We have exited hostile waters
    We lost whatever was looking for us
    We have left these hostile waters
    Nothing is ever gonna catch us

    In these hostile waters

  • Apologies for the double post, I just found this poem on my hard drive and I just wanted to share without having to wait for someone else to contribute.

    It should be stated that this was written in about 2009 (my previous one was a further few years before this one - I should really write again as I've not done so for a couple of years now) though the sentiments are somewhat still valid to certain extents.


    Change Of View

    I was on the forum tonight
    Tryin' to find some peace of mind
    I got told to be myself
    And that's just fine

    I went away to relax
    To think about the things that was said
    I realised that I'm young
    I am happy with my life

    But when I came back things had changed
    I found out something that changed my view
    I couldn't believe I was so deranged
    It made me wake up and change my view

    I'm back on the forum again
    Couldn't believe my own selfishness
    I need to take a firm grip and
    Sort out my priorities

    And when I came back things had changed
    I found out something that changed my view
    I couldn't believe I was so deranged
    It made me wake up and change my view

    I know that different people
    Handle problems in different ways
    I just wanted some support
    But others need more than I

    Please, don't take offence with my words
    I just needed to clear my head
    Don't worry, I know what to do with myself
    I need live for each and every day

    And when I came back things had changed
    I found out something that changed my view
    I couldn't believe I was so deranged
    It made me wake up and change my view

    I've changed my view

    Watch out you'll set the jungle alight.
