We need a section for Poetry. Some of us are excellent Poets or have an extensive collection of Poems that we would like to share with all of you. Since we do not have a Poetry section this thread will have to do until someone decides to give us one. There should be some guidelines so no one gets confused so if the poem you are posting is your own then take the credit, if it is not your writing then give the credit to the actual Poet, if you did not write the poem and do not know who did please write either Unknown or Anonymous.

Thank you and I am looking forward to all the poems you all have written or collected.

OGRE OGRE

One lovely bleak morning
during Thunderstorm warning
Me wandered far out
Beyond hail of a shout..
Me was in a good mood
Just looking for food..
No creature stirred
this far from home.
No Dragon, no Monster,
Not even a Gnome..
Me entered a forest
Huge and tall;
The trees were so big,
Me seemed small..
The way was so tangled
No walker could pass,
But it opened like Magic
A lovely crevasse,
with Nicklepedes and more delights,
And stagnant water rich with blights,
And me tramped up to a hidden Castle
With shroud for Flag and scalp for tassle.
The wind blew by it
With lovely moans,
And all the timbers
Were giant bones.
At entrance slept
Little Dragon called Puk,
Guarding what left me awestruck
A fountain packed
With purple muck.
Spouting gouts of bright red blood.
Me stared so long
Me stood in doze.
And me mouth watered so hard
It drooled on my toes
But me knew such enchantment
Would be complete
The moment me yielded
And started to eat.
Me wanted to see
What further treasure
Presented itself
For the Hero's pleasure.
And in the center in a grimy sack
Lay a wonderful Ogress
Stretched on a rack.
She had hair like nettles,
Skin like mush,
And she face would make
A Zombie blush.
She breath reeked of carrion
Wonderfully foul,
And she stench was so
Strong me wanted to howl.
Me thought me sick
With worm in gut,
But knew it was love
For that splended Slut.

Thank you,Ayla! I couldn't agree more...
Here's one of mine I wrote lo so many years ago,that I think most can relate to....

Pre Nup Jitters

My dearest one
the clock it runs
without consideration
drawing us nigh
to say goodbye-
DAMN THIS SITUATION!
It brings me grief
for 'tis my belief
the one that spurs me onward
it will be
an eternity
before we head homewards
into each others arms
protected from all harms

that never fail
to assail
couples everywhere..
the niggling doubts
all this about
do they truly care
about us when
we part again
because of life's demands
or is it akin
to being in
an hourglass of sand
has dispair comes to stay
did life and joy go away?

We sit and curse
and fear the worst
about our true intents
not caring how
until now
we have been content
with our meanings
totally seeming
that we'd be together
through thin and thick
in health or sick
in both fair and foul weather
tis that unto me
we have for an eternity

until the day
we go away
finally as man and wife
I feel that I
can't say goodbye
to all this inner strife
that gets me down
when you're not arround
my mind races evil
thought prevail
I'm in a jail
caused by this upheaval
until our day has come at last
then these fears'll be laid in the past

another one of mine....

For my love

A smile that is freely given,
Laughter that is heart-felt,
Wisdom given when needed,
Comfort to my troubled mind,
Balm for my tortured soul,
Bandage for my wounded body-
You are all that,and more...

You are my lighthouse becon
on life's tumultous seas,
You are the one who knows
the pain inside of me.
You are the guide post
on the highway of life,
You are the only one
who can end the strife.
You are all that,and more...

Without you,I drift along
the days become a blur
Without you,each day
I become less sure
Without you,the night
grows forever long,
Without you,I'm not sure
how long I can go on.
You are all that and more...

i wrote this for my daughter while going through chemo...when she was in her teens we had some different opinions and views on certain topics...i wrote this poem for her years later

BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER

SOMETIMES AS A DAD
THINGS CAN BE A MESS
I DON'T ALWAYS GET IT RIGHT
AND THAT’S MY FAULT I GUESS
SOMETIMES MY EDGES ARE ROUGH
MY WORDS NOT SO SMART
BUT IF YOU LOOK DEEP INSIDE
YOU'LL FIND A SENSITIVE HEART
YES DEEP WITHIN THAT HEART
THIS I KNOW TO BE TRUE
YOU'RE MY BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER
AND I LOVE YOU.

here is one i wrote shortly after getting out of rehab
That Bright Light
Written by Ken C.

I broke all the rules that would bend
Thinking back on all the years
I find myself shedding tears
Of all the hills I climbed
There was a mountain top
I never reached
I came close so many times
Only to see myself fall back down
I tried to hide it
But I couldn’t shake it
I wasn’t as strong as I thought
I was only a broken clown
But H made it feel right
I was lost in the night
Then I saw God’s bright light
The dark cloud that followed over my head
Could not block out His bright light
He opened my heart
To give me back my sight

nother one

Right Now
the snow is piling up outside
but i don't give a damn
the only thing I care about
is that you're where I am
the breeze makes the shutters creak
the lights flicker on and off
the fire crackling merrily
the generator gives a cough
as it runs out of fuel
I don't care about all that
nor do I care that my manuscript
has been shreaded by the cat
the only thing I truly care about
is that you're here with me
and that we'll be together
throughout eternity....

Memories \by kjc

IF YOU'VE ENOUGH BAD MEMORIES
FOR GENERATIONS TO COME
PLEASANT ONES ARE SCARCE
IT'S TIME TO MAKE SOME.
FILL YOUR HEAD WITH JOY
NOT SELF DOUBT.
MAKE SOME GOOD MEMORIES
AND CROWD THE OTHERS OUT.
IF YOU NEVER HAD A CHANCE
TO ENJOY BEING A CHILD
OPPORTUNITY IS KNOCKING
ESCAPE FOR A WHILE.

Memories Of The Future
written by KJC
The Future
Is Not The Way
I Remembered It
It's Blurring, Going Out Of Focus
Distorting Into Something
Entirely Different
From What It Should Be
As It Was Meant To Be
I See Things Collapsing
Into A Singularity
Of Infinite Clarity
And All I See
Is Nothing

Moon message

I step outside to cool my head
the moon is full and bright
reflecting on the new fallen snow
it's cool healing light
I pause in the cold crisp night
my thoughts turn unto you
and the fact that you're not here
turns my mood to blue
I miss your smile,your laugh,your voice
and your body sweet
I know that until we meet again
my life won't be complete
So I send to you my love
bounced off the silvery moon
until the time we reconnect
I know it will be soon
I can't live without you
All I can do is survive
until the day you come to me
and make me come alive

the affirmation

the moon shines through my window
and the beams cross the floor
to where we lie entanged
across the bed once more
the light from the heavens
shines now where we lie
giving the blessings of the gods
to this union of you and I
Let no one draw assunder
what we have now here wrought
this love that we have forged here
is not lightly bought
it is forged in despair of the past
with all the future's desires
hopes, plans. and dreams
and cast into the heart's fire..
the cool glow of the moonlight
temper it until it's strong
enough to last absences
caused by all the wrongs
that life has dumped upon us
until we get things right
My dearest one hold on to
the memory of this night

Yearning


Restless,I toss and turn in my lonely bed,
With only your vision dancing in my head,
But you are not here.
I lie and dream in fits and starts,
Wanting you to calm my heart,
But you are not here.

My eyes open with a jerk,
And curse the sleep that doesn't work,
Because you are gone.
Although it's cool,my hair is wet
Dampened by a feverish sweat,
Because you are gone.

I get up and change the bed,
Pass the mirror,my eyes are red,
For I know you won't be back.
I take a shower to relieve
Muscles that quake like leaves,
For I know you won't be back.

I lay back down and try again
To sleep.But as just as I do,then
You come back to me.
And as the tolling of a bell,
I'm released from my hell,
For you came back to me.

My Special Love
He came to me late one night
Not knowing who he was
I knew he was mister right
My heart just felt so right

His eyes were dark as was his skin
I new right away that I wanted him
He spoke to me with a voice so bold
I new I needed him

My body was hot and wanting
Beads of sweat I could see on him
His body so nice and sheen
I wanted to let him in

His fingers caressing my body
Opening my legs so wide
My lips open his finger slides inside
Wet, waiting and wanting

Our bodies entwine as one
Explosion of passion is what we want
Is this Love that brought me here
Sad and so broken hearted
He told me this is not what I want

This special man with the dark eyes and skin
Walked out of my life
Just like he walked in

Patti,
Oct.26th 2006
