The Poetry Game (thread Topic 2)

1,073 posts in this topic

Okay This is how the poetry game is played... A word has been left by the previous poster and you must make a poem using it. The poems are to be created by you so please no plagerism or otherwise that spoils the game and the fun. After you've done the creative task...you must be clever in leaving a word for the next person to come along. Okay...let the words fly!

 

(Since the original thread was 10 pages deep I have started it anew here with the word given by Quiet Cutie carried over)

 

Next word: enough (submitted by Quite Cutie)

I have had enough of this false mask of life!

Storming from the stage of good intentions I go..

Only to see nothing but copied expressions which pain me.

The audience is set to sit and stare at the misery displayed

And I am held helpless in distress naked from failure.

The lines given to me are unnatural and it shows.

Pray the curtain falls and all is done for but alas it goes on.

The Goddess of the hour makes her presence to me

In whispers as silk as singing nightingales.

The play ends in her arms I rest with thunderous applause.

summing? tried to find it in the dictionary and found "sum up" or summus-(highest) Did you mean summoning?

Well I'll pick 'sum up', because that's what I think you meant....

 

There's a chill in the air

the wind blows accross your house

the trees bend and sway,

The squirrels gather....

 

If I were to sum up this season

I'd say that there is a fear

Fear of no more warmth

Fear of being far but near....

 

When the snow comes

I'll bed down and wait

for the spring thaw

and then fate....

 

 

next poem, use the word:

 

Fear

Hidden in my chest

beneath the layers of skin, bone, and muscle

lies a heart

Not many acknowledge in themselves.

If you were to see it,

You'd notice all the scars

From words said out of spite,

Unrequited feelings of care,

love and concern...

scars from all the paths in life taken

which ended in disaster.

 

Look even deeper,

and you'll notice a quiet fear.

Fear of the unknown

fear of stepping out and becoming the woman

I was always meant to be.

Deep in my soul a quiet fear of

being alone; never truly being loved or accepted...

next word: delicate

Dreams of You

 

My dreams of you continue

Night after night

I wonder why it had to happen

When I know you put up a good fight.

 

These feeling of pain and remorse

They overwhelm me every day

I wish you were still here by my side

And everything would be okay.

 

I cry myself to sleep at night

With regrets of what I could have done

You did everything within your power

But said your reasons to live were none.

 

I miss the time we spent together

The most delicate and roughest of times

You saved me from myself

And listened to my bitches and whines.

 

I wish we could trade places

So you could have the life you deserve

But I guess it was just destiny

Yet I wonder how "God" had the nerve?

 

I know that one day I'll see you again

And I'm excited for that day to come.

Hopefully that day will be soon enough

And I can feel so relieved and so numb.

 

I know you still watch down on me

With thoughts of disappointment

But I do the best I possibly can

Without your love and support.

 

Next word: Heart

I'm not sure if you really ever understood

how much I loved you and what an important part

of my life you were and will always be

I hold you close in a special place in my heart.

Surrender:

the only way to experience love.

so afraid of what i am and am not

I hold back, I want to sound "right"

I want to look "right" but slowly I lose control

and can no longer dam the emotions

and feelings that come over

Damn it feels good to surrender!

Lying with my head on your chest

I can't help but squirm as the hairs tickle my cheek.

I feel so safe in your arms.

It's as if I belong nowhere but here with you.

 

I feel so warm, my skin against yours.

Your body radiates heat

So that I can feel your presence

Even when we're apart

 

The fast but steady beat

of your heart excites me--

yet, at the same time,

brings a sense of serenity.

take my freedom

my choice

my shoes

my voice

you can't take my dreams

 

take my ring

my locket

all the things

in my pocket

you can't take my memory

 

try to bend be

try to break me

try to fix me

don't sedate me

 

please, don't sedate me. It's not safe here.

why all the whispering

why all the deceit

why all the tears

why all the lies

why didn't i see

you for who you really are

This endless road twists out before me,

there are so many choices to make

I've been walking this way for some time now,

and don't know which turns to take.

 

So I blunder and trip and fall sometimes,

But my body is too tired to know,

I am desperate to get to where I am going

and I am running out of road.

Tranquility is fleeting in a world where there is no peace.

From my corner I see life passing by,

and wonder why we have to age?

 

Now I wish I was young again,

if only for awhile,

then I could kiss all you beauties

and leave you with a smile! :blush:

 

 

Yea it sucks but you try that word! LOL!

Time

 

 

Our faces show effects of time

the longer that we are here the more

marks we have whether they be on

our faces or on our hearts due to the thing

that we call time.

She walks on photographs and calendars;

Mentally crushing the memories of wasted crying.

And carlessly dismissing her reflection;

A mirror that tilts to one side.

The side to prefer best; though she's wrecked

In it's entirety.

Scratching rainbows in her eyes;

Dropping pots of gold under her tongue, to

Give her words a sense of gilded royalty;

When she knows she has none.

When she knows they all dig deep to find

Her glittering frames built on filth.

On easy pre-made wealth; from the loving and the blind.

And she plays silly.

Plays coy.

How could she know how deep we had to dig this time?

How far had we delved into the grime?

It's hard to know at this point.

 

 

Love;

Toni'Faye.

Asphyxia

 

she could never save me

no matter how much I wanted her to

I wanted her too badly to live with

what I could never have

and in the end I would rather die

choking on sunshine

the hands of the wind squeezing my throat

while the current of the river

held me down to the bed

and sweet water filled my lungs

 

 

 

Ekua

OK.. I haven't written poetry for quite some time.. so bare with me..

 

 

Tangled in her kiss

wrapped in her limbs

our bodies clinging like Velcro

our hearts beating like hammers on steel

emotions and fluids begin to flood

earthquakes and orgasmic eruptions fill my mind

I feel a buzzing, I hear a buzzing

my eyes flutter open slowly

the buzzing becomes louder

I'm in an empty bed

left alone with a smile and an alarm clock

insect? hmmm... :yahoo: ....k....I'll give it a shot :clapping:

 

A lonely heart is tossed aside

bleeding mercilessly on the ground.

Trampled on by incautious steps,

from walking insects who bare no name.

Broken into pieces and set aflame,

the heart is no more,

Mere ashes remain.

 

 

that was rough :clapping: LOL...

When I'm feeling lonely, I retreat inside.

There you wait, where I can hide.

You smile at me and I am free.

Your hair smells of flowers, so soft and sweet.

Your skin is the color of sand.

You take me by the hand,

And bring us to a place only we can see.

Oh I wish you were real my lover.

Then I could discard this cover.

Ahhh, but alas, tis not true.

And once again I am left feeling blue. <_<

My belly did not swell,

my heart did not as well.

Sunken hopes made me cry

why did my baby die?

 

The pain too much to bear

A hollow shell I wear,

I walk alone along the beach

a maiden came to teach

 

She held my hand and said

"your path leads this way instead,

be not afraid of hands

that heal nature's plans

 

I will hold you until you cry."

Waves flushed my eyes

her fingers graced my middle

white fire began to kindle

 

Hot flames replaced my ache

This maiden let me take

her body and her lust

turning memories into dust

 

the beach became our bed

til' twilight sky turned red

I suckled her very soft

until flesh became too hot.

 

I had her every way

she moaned in the fray

sand and salt in her hair

we rested now as a pair

 

I thanked the maiden in kind

for changing heart and mind

a grasped my new path

and walked the beach with a laugh

 

as I turned around to say good bye

she was gone in the blink of an eye.

If real or nay

I could not say

 

I will have her again someday.

Someday.

Across your eyes and down your neck

I pour my affection on you

You cross your legs and release a sigh

What's done I cannot undo

 

My breath gets caught up in your locks of hair

You look away from me

I touch your blouse and try to hold you close

You tease so seductively

 

 

 

 

Next word: REFLECT
