There are no rules. The only rule is the limit of your creativity. Post old works or write something new. Or, post someone elses poem or song you like, but make sure to credit them.



Just let it flow.......






Immersed in my thoughts, I circumnavigate the globe,
elevate my frontal lobes, and project poems,
That penetrate architectures like chapels and domes
From the Pantheon, to the Vatican in Rome..
I roam, thrown around, and blown..
by tropical storms and hurricanes
Manifestations of mothernature’s pain
Liquid rage flowin' threw her veins
now that her planets drenched in acid rains
All that remains...
Concrete and asphalt...
Gone are the rolling hills and plains
Extraterestrials think our race is strange
Flying planes into buildings
Bombin' innocent civilians
3rd world countries got terrorists
1st world has villians...

Care not what others think and do for you are not them. Do not look to them to see you for they are not a mirror. To see yourself you must look inside and feel. To know what is true you must feel it and if you can feel it then you must listen to hear it. You need your pain you do not want for without it there is no understanding.

Care Not

Do not stare at me with all-knowing eyes
You do not know the path I have traversed
You do not know if there is choice

Do not stare at me with all-knowing eyes
Stand before yourself and look and see
Stand before your world that is a haze

Do not stare at me with all-knowing eyes
I am one and two such as life
I am the veil that hides

Do not stare at me with all-knowing eyes
There is all and nothing
There is you and I

Feel as only I feel and know as only I know
Believe as only I believe and live as only I live
Then you may stare at me with all-knowing eyes

A Forgotten Friend.

Sunday
my cave speaks true.
empty beer cans, spit bottles, and dirty boxers
litter my bedroom floor.
an endless motley of intermittent music
ceases to break company.
Augustana sings their Best.
a profound solemness takes hold.
trance.
The wind in my hair and the sun in my face
running, running, running
through golden wheat fields
to a far away place
a sweet and forgiving Unknown
oh how i long for the Unknown...

...to and fro, teasing and breaking...
...coveting..i am...
a thundrous clap erupts uninvited
...alive

my reverie, no more
tap tap tap on my window sill
rain begins to pour her melancholy
onto those most undeserving.
another blast.
she shatters the heart and corrupts the mind.
she is my judge, jury, and executioner.
her feelings are always shared.
mother nature can never be ignored

tap tap tap, tap tap tap
a whisper, a friendly rapping,
she calls my name.
listless and unknowing,
I approach and prop open the window pane.

A light zephyr swiftly flows through,
an old friend long overdue,
forever awakening to the touch.
above, an old, forgotten poster dances with her
refreshing breeze,
and like a thousand truths, it reads,
"fear can hold you prisoner, hope can set
you free".
peace.
I fear her wind wont carry me away.
I hope to be free.

Villainous foes of the human race
spreading the seed of their hate
making us seem a piteous disgrace.

Let the gift of the feather
overcome the reptilian brain
and we'll cultivate peace together.

No longer may they manipulate
their efforts impotent and vain
human love is far too great.

By every man is his shadow.
The backdrop of a man and the direction of his view.
Holding in his hands the sands of all that is true.
Whispers in the wind and echoes through the hall.
Harmonious as the shadow reaches to the skys ocean hue.
And the man reaches down into the sea of sparkling blue.

Wow hillbilly just simply wow!
That is awsome. You definitely have a deep soul there. Not too many people have that or are even courageous enough to display it.

Down by the old model T
Where molly first showed it to me.
It was long and black, looked like a crack, looked like a man hole to me

I took out my 9 inch flag pole
and shoved it up mollys man hole.

And while she let out a scream
I poured on the cream
DOWN BY THE OOOOLD MOOODELLLLLL TTTTTT !!!!!!

I'm sorry but I ABSOLUTELY had to add the lyrics of one of my favorite bands Pennywise. I believe you will most (if not all) find these lyrics true. This is my favorite PW song,

“Music can express individuality because those of us who differ have something in common.”
- JB

We take this life and each day we try
We all believe but we can't agree
To get the life you choose but nothing you can use
We could pray all day but things won't change
And it’s all we need to make us believe

Don't Fight
You'll never win so try
Soon you're beat but why you'll never know
It’s something you’ll never know

Hey, you can't believe
The way we'll never see
Change

A little less tragedy is all we need

We choose to hide what burns inside
We isolate and recriminate
We all want something more
A life worth fighting for
Gets washed away
Because things won’t change
It's all we need to make us believe

Don't fight
You'll never win so try
Soon you're beat why you'll never know
It’s something you’ll never know

Hey, you can't believe
The way we'll never see
Change

A Little less tragedy Is all we need

We all go to a place we hide
You want out wanted out dead or alive
It's Your Life your philosophy
It's your dose of reality
and It's all we Need To make us believe

Don't Fight
You'll never win so try
Soon you're beat but why you'll never know
It’s something you’ll never know

Hey, you can't believe
The way we'll never see Change

A little less tragedy Is all we need


Pennywise – All we need

That was EPIC


So obviously that was all metaphors, I am hoping.

Here's one I just wrote:

A subject we all know too dear,
Future pain we must all feel.
Sorrow and fear oh so near,
Death by-god has come here.

We lay a flower on the grave,
Watching whilst it too is taken away.
Gentle breeze washing through,
Joy and sunshine so-far removed.

For the brightest light appears dim,
Death we know has already been.
Taken away a body of love,
Nothing remains to hug.

Bringing the strongest man to his knees,
Beginning and pleading to let him leave.
Alone in his silence,
Broken and peeved.

Death cometh as it will,
Behind is left a path of hell.
For no cry, plead, desire, or prayer,
Can bring your loved one back from there.
