Due to a request, I'm posting them up. They just kind of flowed out. No editing done.


"Considered"

It’s a walk too short
During a picture perfect sight
It’s a movie too long
Before an intimate night

It’s a drink too many
On karaoke Friday
And a mile too few
On an open highway

It’s a mountain too high
For a stroll in the park
It’s a moment too low
To be considered just dark

It’s all things to be considered
When you hope to fall
The blunt reality
It’s what you never considered at all



"Wooden Box"

This imaginary fortress
My father built for me
up in the tree
I am the boy in a wooden box

This frame I built
With my bare hands
The roof and door stands
I am the man in a wooden box

This cramped place
Six feet under a carved stone
Never Alone
I am the old man in a wooden box

"You Lost The Key"

This room has become a tomb
The sleeping undead
Words left unsaid
Echo off these hollow walls

This screaming silence
Is deafening to me
Countdown to infinity
I keep one eye on my watch

I hang my past in the closet
It starts to knock
The door needs a lock
I bet you have me all figured out

Such assumptions I make
Are the same you made
So as I fade
I can not apologize

I bonded myself in chains
You lost the key


"Worth Unknown"
Birth made earth home
Innocent in nature
Never led
Worth unknown

Grew up a stone
From heartless neglect
Needs to be led
Worth unknown

Been left alone
Manipulated by love
Been misled
Worth unknown

Nowhere to call home
No one left to follow
Words left hollow
Worth unknown

Why would I?

I don't know, maybe you should ask the countless members who posted poetry in this forum before I did.

Tool.

Hi


Did you happen to check this forum before you decided to post? ATS is not just a conspiracy site - it actually offers a lot of different avenues for many different topics - one of which includes poetry. Perhaps you should check out the Collab. Forum and the Short Stories Forum, if you'd like to see more examples of poetry on this site? If poetry is not welcome at ATS then I am in fact, guilty of a crime.

Thanks and welcome to the creative side.

 


As always Grim, excellent stuff - I wish you would post more my dear
I'd ask you how long it took you to come up with these, but I probably know the answer.

was'nt saying anything disrespectful about your work
so don't be so quick to label people 'tool'
ATS has many facets as you learn as you go along

Ah the reaper of grim
shows a layer of skin
once peeled away
unveils an artist within

What a surprise
to see poems here
it softens the blow
of House's draconian
glare!
