I hate to say it but, i think the amount of people wanting to post poems is going to drop to a minimum.. just a guess here, poetry is a deep and meaningful way to express oneself, i feel it's going generic now. No offense to anyone i just feel it wont be the same.

You are right. If I put one of my poems in a thread here, I want it to be the same as a short story. Possiby, there needs to be a line count on poems? Longer than a haiku, as there is a haiku thread aready.

I want to rap
This is crap
Those few that complained
Have rained on the parade
Maybe they're not at fault
Knowledge shall be sought
If it ain't broke
Fixing is a joke

It was winter when I first saw her there,
Standing alone in Moscow's Red Square,
She told me the time was at hand, for too great was humanity's demand, we had fought and killed and bled and died, mother earth was no longer on our side, a great fire was set down below, the destruction was greater then any man had known, as our cities burned and fell to the sea, mankind would finally bend the knee. Yes it was winter when I saw her there, for I met death in Moscow's Red Square

There was a tree
by the sea
lots of bees
flying free
in the air
i saw a bear
we made a dare
we did not care.

This is a high coup
No one should feel blue
The decision was made for me and you

It will help to save our sanity
From bitter inanity
And even a little profanity

I applaud the decision
There should be no derision
Even if it means an incision

A coup indeed
From those in need
Attention unabated

Even in here
I'll not shed a tear
Art need not be castigated

Fellow friends of writ
Those with humor and wit
Will still shine through what you've propagated.

I took that hole and it sucked my soul.
To infinity and all.
Standing straight and tall.
Thought the project would never end,
Tragically now, my mind just won't mend.

Lately I'm a thinker,
That your infinity hole was a stinker.
Taking me from sane to that godforebidden place,
And I could not surface,,,,,

As the lace in that space tied me up
After I took that sup.

I take the Infinity hole and aloft I cast it,,,,,
Miles from the stagnant atmosphere it creates......

Only to be taken and caught again and again,
By the persons I called mates....


Kind regards,

bally

It was not my high coup
I only made one post critical of the short story forum, not even two
I believe in free speech for all, spammers too

Seeing constant inane poems
Wasn't even ho hum
It was more like low hum

I would have put up with it in the name of free speech
Even if it were just a screech
And needed to be cleaned with bleach

Epic and with passion is your write,
Explaining the substance of your might.
Take from your experience the forum froth
and challenge it with profusion wrath.

I follow the substance of your talk.
Simply in my mind I take the higher walk.
Your inane contributions slice the sagging walls,
As spoken with your Avatar's blessed falls.

Kind regards,

bally

a reply to: TheKnightofDoom

I love performance poetry and I tend to try and decipher the narrator in their acting and spoken words,

Here's my take on your contribution.

Doom and fear overtook my solitary stance,
Once my sugarpeas drove her car.

Then, like a bad black cat waiting in a preying prance.
Boom.

Sad aye friends, the fear of her death has overtaken me,
Gloom.

Kind regards,

bally

If your "higher walk"
Consists of keeping yourself from certain forum talk
I just have to balk

No one is above criticism
Whether they think they're awesome
Or they think they're humdrum

Most of the poem threads were echo chambers
Criticism wasn't allowed and was often met with anger
Is it right for this forum to allow that and act as an anchor

Wasn't there once a poetry thread?
Perhaps as it goes, it is now dead.
But from the ashes hope springs anew
Poetry is flowing, Merci Beaucoup

Coffee it is

Some of mine are easy to read
mostly they're not,
a way wrought with danger caught,
in what the demons taught
me
and what can I say?
did I sleep last night?
I'll sleep today.
hey if I dozed right now,
I still have an hour,
the power, to rest,
is in my hands
but dang my brain is wired,
I'm not even a little,
tired.
I'm going to work
I'll be fine
I've never been fired.
so coffee it is.

It is with some melancholy I announce a reply.
My intention to applaud you was tragically overtaken,
by my desire to inspire and not be sly,
I feel my words were mistaken.

My regards to you fellow writer,
My "higher walk" words were my abstraction,
And I apologise if these words were a distraction,
from the otherwise praise to you as a fighter.

Take this prose with gifted thoughts.
Nought be any hard directions to you.
Fine literacy only constructed.
Find this letter to be true.

kind regards,

bally
