no one is special behind the disguises that blanket the less fortunate times of our lives, just as there is no evidence of being special when considered fortunate.

trust me when i say there is no end game in finding ways around being apathetic about the subject.

you should be apathetic, it's only logical.

i think i may have misinterpreted the meaning of the thread. lol. i make a lot of short sentences with big meanings.
never really try to be a poet, just a thinker.
i hope at least what i entered falls within the ats community?

short as in.. a sentence or two to convey something that accounts for many things.

screw this, i tried writing poetry, but it's too hard. my thoughts are already concentrated enough. i end up making 3 word lines even i have to sit there for 5 minutes trying to figure out all the thought that goes into it. can't make poetry like that, i'm sorry, it's just not for me.

i think i'll just stick to my own way of making whatever kind of sayings i feel like without worrying about rhyme or prose.

so you can completely disregard my entries, i don't feel like making threads for each of those short little sayings.

so no point in editing them saying i'm not writer in that case, should be obvious anyways

Man

There are lots
and lots of peeps
who take a sentence
cut it up and call it
poetry.

Poetry is what you want poetry to be. A challenge to yourself to stick to a rhyme format for example can be a great way to divorce yourself from your ego and concentrate on what fits the form. Sometimes your poem writes itself leaving your opinion behind to fulfil the technical task demanded by the scheme you've chosen. Writing might demand less you. Having to fit a certain form is a great help to better your writing skills. Cutting up a sentence is easy.. fitting a Haiku or Senryu takes a bit more concentration and completing a sonnet will set you back hours if not days to fit the pieces. Sometimes leaving you flabbergasted by the end result.

Yes poetry can be hard, but it is as hard as you make it to be. You want to write that sonnet to the letter having al aspects perfectly aligning the format, you will fail as a novice. (there is no maybe there.) Poetry is making choice and knowing why you make them. A balance between what you want to fit and what actually fits.

Poetry is a mix of sound and rhythm, you can add meaning if you want but that does not have to be the main ingredient, you even can leave it be and just jabber away if you like. Poetry is breaking habits, shifting opinions, standing in another's shoes, taking criticism and giving it. Poetry is a process, a way to command and concur, leave behind and overcome, take control and let go.

If you let it.

I keep searching for a poem written by Phage; I haven't seen it yet, but I bet his prose about VD would be one to remember!

It would most likely be filled with so much logic and common sense, half the membership's heads would explode...

That's exactly why I'm hoping he'll share his thoughts! He brings knowledge from a place much deeper than the average person is able to go!

Reading your poem, the part of the tower - reminded me of this little diddy
that I could not fit into this contest..



A DEAD MAN's TALE

I was confronted by Lucifer late one night
I could not run and I dared not fight
When I saw you in the darkness of his eyes
Then I was mesmerized totally by his lies

He weaved me a tale of woe and sorrow
That of my soul he came not just to borrow
The rest of my life I would not know love
Promising this, he would make damn sure of

He said she whispered I deserved no one
That in his darkness, there'll be no Sun
For my heart no woman would ever care
Going with him peacefully, for I'm in his snare

He said the one of purity has fated me there
That in the game of love, not all is fare
My heart will burn, for she holds the key
As I'm down in Hell's fires for all eternity

That's why I went willingly into his Hell
Alone in his watchtower, I toll his bell
The remainder of my soul, his slave I'll be
Praying one day.. her love.. to set me free..
