A place for all the poets who don't even know it! Although... probably more useful to those who do. If you're into poetry and looking for a place to share your work or get feedback on it, this is the place to do so. :)

All forms of poetry are welcome here - haikus, limericks, acrostics, etc. - and unless your poetry is, like, Dante's Inferno length, you're probably welcome to share entire poems. Use your judgement.

Oh, I have one!

Your eyes tell a story
Of warm sun and bright day
Of cold snow and dark shadows

Your smile paints a picture
Of a thousand sweet memories
And a thousand bitter secrets

Your laugh is a song
Of a soft summer breeze
Of a harsh winter gale

You’re like a puzzle to me
And I don't know if I can manage
To connect your varied pieces


Okay, actually there are two here.


Who are you
But a ghost from the past
A shadow in the present
And forgotten in the future

Who are you
But an ink-stained poem
On a wrinkled page
Whose words fade with time

Who are you
But someone lost to me
Too far gone to ever be found
Who perhaps I never knew at all

No, I know exactly who you were
 I know exactly who you'll be
 I know exactly who you are
And know above all you're nothing to me

No matter what I do that last line isn't right. You know, for someone who claims to not be into romance, I always end up with it somehow...

Please turn phone sideways on mobile. The lines should not be long enough to take up...well, more than one line.

^That is some beautiful poetry right there!
I absolutely loved the first one. The second one is pretty good too, though it does read a little rough towards the end, you're right. I'm no expert poet myself but I've been indulging in poetry for many years hence I suggest :P

Maybe removing the words "above all" would work better because that kind of language doesn't really tie into poetry easily (just my opinion) and maybe even the removal of "And know". So it'd be like "I know exactly who you are.... you're nothing to me." That delivers more punch in my mind.

Also, I totally know what you mean by not being into romance and then ending up with romantic poetry. I have the same thing going haha. Here's one of mine:

Quote
Shallow breaths, blurring vision,

hoping and aching and petrified in pain

trying hard not to love you

but these efforts go in vain.

Strangled words, half-written letters

trying to write you away,

silence glimmers, irony laughs,

on paper you can’t stay away.

Immortalised in ink

memorised in syllables

every stroke is a thought of you

relief in these words – so minimal.

Wish I could stop, not feel

pretend i’m fine and pain never existed

this love is blinding, so paralysing

can’t breathe ’cause I’m addicted.

What do you all think?

I have a couple I'm willing to share :)

All Because of You

What you see is not always
What you get
I'm the girl that will always
Keep you guessing

Just because I smile
Doesn't mean I am Okay
There will always be unshed tears
For the love I gave
And for the love you threw away

I gave you my whole heart
I gave you everything I am
I gave up everything for you
But you couldn't understand

My hopes and dreams were shattered
My glimpse at forever gone
My heart was handed back to me in pieces
I had no choice but to run away
I could not stay that strong

I found solace in another
But broke his heart in two
All this pain and suffering
And it's all because of you

And now for my next trick

Remember me in Heaven

There's not a day that goes by
Where I don't miss you
There's not a day that goes by
That I don't wish I could see you again

And I know that heaven is just
A little too far
But every night I find myself wishing
On that same bright star

Oh how I wish I could just
See you again
And I pray that I will someday
But I Know
That heaven is where you're meant to stay

Please remember me in Heaven
when you walk down those streets of gold
Please ask if they have a place for me
In that heavenly choir of old

I want to sing with angels
When it's my time to go
So please remember me in Heaven
While I'm still here on earth

Well it's been too long
Since you went away
I still find myself missing you
More and more each day
I have my days
Where you're always on my mind
And I have my nights
That I still cry myself to sleep

I want so much
to have one more chance
To hold you in my arms
And whisper "I Love You"

Please remember me in Heaven
when you walk down those streets of gold
Please ask if they have a place for me
In that heavenly choir of old

I want to sing with angels
When it's my time to go
So please remember me in Heaven
While I'm still here on earth

Oh how I wish I could just
See you again
And I pray that I will someday
But I Know
That heaven is where you're meant to stay

Please remember me in Heaven
when you walk down those streets of gold
Please ask if they have a place for me
In that heavenly choir of old

I want to sing with angels
When it's my time to go
So please remember me in Heaven
While I'm still here on earth

And one more short(ish) one

Untitled

You can take your reasons
You can tell your lies
There won't be any tears
Because I'm too pissed to cry
My heart's already broken
I won't give you another try
So please
Help me tell you goodbye

I have an entire 40-page word document filled with poems (I think I have a problem)

It's heartbreakingly beautiful. It reminded me of the lyrics of "Paper Airplane" by  Alison Krauss,

Quote
How many days should I smile with a frown?
 'Cause you're not around with the sun on your shoulders
 And how many nights must I wake up alone
 And know in my soul that it's almost over now?
- "Paper Airplane" by  Alison Krauss

Here's my attempt in haiku style.

Veil of Darkness

Wrapped in Veil of Darkness
I lingered by myself at midnight
It gives me peace of mind

Midsummer dream whispers to me
So gently, sometimes dangerously
Tomorrow, who knows the winner?

I've never been one for poetry unless I was being forced to write it for a grade.  Most of the poems from my grade school years have been destroyed. -laugh- You could tell by reading it that I was just doing it because I had to.  A couple of poems survived college though.  I don't mind reading poetry, but writing it has never been my strong point.  It is seriously a challenge and art form in its own right!

This is one of the few poems not to have been purged.  And yes it was for a grade which is why it is so rough.

Eyes That Watch

There stood a house at the edge of town,
With window eyes that watched the ground.
They looked upon the grass of green,
 And little boys within the trees
Those little boys were so carefree,
Never seeing the eyes that could see.

She stood behind those eyes of glass,
Watching as cars and clouds drifted past.
Gazing out with eyes that stared,
Through the grime that hid the crime,
She is like a ghost within the house
Longing to join them in running free.

She hears the footsteps upon the stairs
Never had been so terribly scared
With a small hand placed upon the eyes that watch
She hopes it will one day stop.
The boys outside run through the trees,
While she wonders if she too will again be free.
The cake is a lie.

A few... Nervous about this because I have no idea if I'm any good and only my English teachers have ever read my stuff. Just a note though, these three are pretty old, but I'm putting them here because all of my recent ones are in paper format and I'm being lazy ;)

Dirty

Dirty dirty.
Henry Miller,
Stream of consciousness,
Tropic of Cancer.
Tropic of Capricorn 
Sons and Lovers
The Rainbow
Lady Chatterley’s Lover
D.H. Lawrence those works
Melville Herman: No not Moby Dick idiot, Billy Budd and Benito Cereno!
James Joyce who didn’t write anything that offended…

To challenge the un-challenged I might say
brings upon a dangerous calling
he writes upon a page
without rhyme
and meter
meter
and rhyme
one should be called indecorous at this day and age
queers to be shunned
rebels to be stamped out
we the fascist of this society.

I have been sent to report this colossal deterioration of moral standard
you the dirty bastards that didn’t clean up the messes!
I’m here to bring back the pressed and the polished
the clean and the shine
the heterosexual and the reason
the champagne and the wine.
I declare that no longer, we take example from these treacherous works of what some may call “art”.

We the sage just call it “dirty”.

Boys

I distinctly remember the mist
Vaguely remember the kiss
Your soft lips against my rough ones
The moon illuminating our bodies
Curved together on the dock 
In the cold, dark night

You came out to me
I came out to myself
And the stars
The beautiful, awful stars
Sweetly smiling but judging us quietly
So much uglier up close
And so different from each other
And All they could do was stare at us
The two boys on the dock
softly lip locked


Beach Love

I have this lust for you, that I never knew.
I have this fondness for you, that I never knew.
I never knew, but I knew, and I never knew.
I didn't know till' the sand grazed my wrists
and you grazed my lips.

It was inappropriate because my mother had died.
It was inappropriate because later my brother would ask for your hand in marriage.
But you had finally turned pretty
But you had finally caught my attention.

^ your imagery is amazing! i love this whole stanza (is that what's it's called? i really don't know poetry lingo)

Quote

i also really like 'dirty', i think it's amazing!!
and below is one of my freeform poems:

ON ROMANTICIZING
feelings are not metaphors.
they are rawrawraw and bleed from your heart,
seeping through your body.
they are not an inferno, or a
hurricane.
there is no chaos glinting in your eyes,
no steel ribs protecting you.
there is nothing but youyouyou,
you and your emotions.

^ so dramatic! I love it!

The lost memories in the blue ocean

The lost friends under the hot summer sun

Time passes by slowly and gently
Healing your heart

You start walking again

Branwen I'm working on it lol

In the meantime, here's a snippet from an older one

Quote

I've been hurt before
But never quite like this
I let my guard down
And this is what I get
I believed you
When you said you loved me
And now all I have to show
For this
Is another broken heart
