THE SADDEST POEM
by Pablo Neruda
I can write the saddest poem of all tonight.
Write, for instance: "The night is full of stars,
and the stars, blue, shiver in the distance...
"The Worst Poem Ever"
This is the worst poem ever;
nothing noteworthy profound or clever;
no meter, no measure, a confusing tone.
It's the worst poem ever so leave me alone.
My girlfriend one day read a beautiful poem posted by a friend here on EP.. by Laberge.. she said to me it would be wonderful if someone dedicated such poem specially for her...
I call it bad poetry
sometimes it's just stacked lines
sometimes it's banal and trite
I break the academic rules
and write songs to be sung by fools
Maybe I don't...
Pedestrian rhymes are not that fun.
Especially when your out in the sun.
Damn white paper blinds my eyes,
Every time, I get bit by flies
Sort of like King...
"I call it bad poetry # 2"
manic rudimentary ramblings
of a man child with poetic constipation
and stuck in a quatrain rut.
This feeling is nagging
Is it a love song, or self...
Light shadow, cosmic wanderer,
tooth pick broken, rainbow mirror.
Barefoot bard with teaks of Chan;
given, taken, held up here.
Maddening, glazed and...
It was a sad gray rain
that found your poem on the ground.
The wet ink flowed blue tears
born of loss, and love, and odes
to swans that mate for life.
My soul has lost it...
I looked upon the shelves and sought
what overrated writers wrought
philosophers and hitchhikers
their name gives their poems clout
You who suffer for your art...
Thank you for the golden bridge
upon which to retreat.
Thank you for the sacrilege
that makes me incomplete.
Make way for peace and better days;
find solace in...
I strolled among lavendills
in the pithy piney plodding hills
bearing the brunt of burdensome bollocks
as I garnished grins of whippoorwills.
On a plateau...
Have you tried translating poems? Trust me, they're really fun. I had this as a group project and it was a ton load of fun. The best part is how the mood changes as you translate...
Alliteration hides in the dried leaves on the forest floor.
Assonant and consonant, the sounds come forth;
the wind, or footsteps being their release.
Who else is obsessed with slam poetry?
It was another lonely evening
In another lonely bar
When across the crowded gathering
I see, there you are
Intoxicating beauty and grace and poise
Seemingly unaffected by the crowd...
SNOW PRINCESS DARK DREAMS MUST GO!My lovely Princess, of purest white Snow;I know your heart, knows not where to go;unseens strings, pull you every which way;turning dream filled...
You can leave me
Take away all that I have
You can want me
Love me for who I am
Takin' me high in the air
Flyin', so scared
Afraid not to see you again
There's a ghost inside the mirror
staring back into your eyes.
What exactly brought you here?
It's a wonder how time flies.
Have you ever traveled back in time
to the day...
To you who stalked me here, then came to bed with me, kissing me goodnight and let me fell asleep in yr arms.. you who runs her fingers in my hair and brushes my lips with her...
~The personal heart of a soulIs not the personal heart of a person.
The heart is what loves that of which is around you.
My heart is why i love you.
Many people say " you have to...
"The Briny Balm"
I went to the sea to heal my heart.
I found a balm
in the sighing waves,
the soothing salty air.
She's a fickle lover; It's often said
by sailors and seaman...
I'm in love with a lady named misery,
and trust me,
we have some history,
she drew me in,
with a wicked grin,
soon I would be hers,
feeding her sin,
letting her cold touch under...
I don't want to just love you. I want to own you
Every square inch of flesh
Every creased wet place
Your breath and heartbeat
Your scent and musk
Your eyes that seek me
She loves elephants.
She went to see them once,
She saw so much more.
picture word calligraphy
sight sound senses and minds eye
celebrate and grieve
source of frustration
"Inside My Head Today" (prose?)
Everything strobes and there's a ringing in my ears. Someone else is looking through my eyes, and I'm thinking someone else's thoughts. There's a...
There is an amazing lady
who lives across the sea
whose soul is powerful and true
and filled with artistry
Her pain comes from a real place
Her pleasure simply...
Sometimes people feel
expectations of themselves
they can't live up to,
so they see others
and expect them to step up
and live up to theirs
It's no big deal...
Sight, the colored canvas's in my mind;
the sun the sea the land beneath,
every thing upon which you've shined
your revealing light becomes belief.
"Patches on my Soul"
Let the four line stanzas roll
for all the patches on my soul
Muse I bid you to begin
to gently move the mind and pen.
Imprisoned in this cage of rhyme,
Atmosphere of blue.
Lovely, lush, and lascivious.
Individuality and collectivism.
Frothy foamy seas and Frisco fog.
Otherworldly in certain places...
Sometimes there's a disconnect
between the mouth and mind.
You struggle hard to recollect
the words you just can't find.
Words are easy. Words are cheap...
and I'm glad I've met another like me on ep, who loves to read and write
"There's a strange frenzy in my head,
of birds flying,
each particle circulating on its own.
Is the one I love everywhere?"
Whispers that make the wind seem like it howls in the moon light,
The dark seeming so far away only one thing that makes me want to forget the past was you and know your gone in...
Every direction i walk is all black and white no color, no expression, no emotion at all... until i met you, i cant forget that feeling , that indescribable feeling in my heart...
Won't you let me take away the pain and show you all the beauty I see in you?
Dreams...its all i got to escape the world , and return to my own
Even then darkness is shown at fully grown,
But yet light still shines, for it will always fight, climbing its...
