haha meter makes it actually a little easier having guidelines


Bullshit. Making something hemmed in by meter sound good is hella hard. You probably compromise and make lame rhymes to fill in the holes and call it a day.

But if you're saying making lame rhymes with a meter is easier than making lame rhymes without, sure, I'd agree with that.

quite so you dont find the 7 11's easier than free writing and trying to make rhythm ?

and giving a poem consistent rhythm without meter is considerably harder but this could all just be opinion of course

and yes just schlouing words together is much easier with guidelines but i'm sorry if you interpreted what i said as such

Right now my heart beats fast
but I know it will not last
One day I will be feeble and old
soon after my body will turn cold
When that time comes will I cry
would I not be ready to die
Or will I be relieved at my death
what if I was the only one left
All my friends, gone before me
no one left to listen to my story
I think I would fall into depression
Repeatedly asking this question
Why am I alone?

The Day That All Was Still

I allways have, and allways will,
Remember the day that all was still.
The trees begain to shrivel and crack,
There once pink blossoms, smoldering black.
The emerald fields on which I'd lay,
Scattered with ashes of death and decay.
My daughter who yesterday giggled with glee,
Now silenced forever and eternity.

I remember the dark and acid smoke,
That made me gag, made me choke.
I remember the fiery scarlet flower,
That crushed Hiroshima with her power.
I remember the war, I remember the cost.
The beautiful daughter that I lost.
I allways have and allways will,
Remember the day that she went still.

hmmm not really sure if this poem is good or not but if you hate it hate your hearts out!

bomb poem 3for3

dying in the great depression is the way it was
when the economy turned their thoughts into a bunch of fuzz
long into the fields thought many villagers upon graves but never applied their intelectual heroism
what many genius's believed to have great thoughts of silijism
what time is this in centeral time zone in africa
that deep dark thought crossed his path while reading about america
well i died because this song was over
while we prophets vanquished our secrets because the pillaging continues to be sober
back in the chamber of secrets i killed the professor gandalf's basilsk
subsequently i demolished forever the apothicarries who ended up being masichists

deep along the path i walked through fields of despair
which ended with hasteful waste and scarce care
tonight beneath the stars i gazed upon myself wondering how i became so small
but the reality was within grasp i turned upon a questionable picture in the fall
into eternity i began to find redemption and contemption for my feelings that surround my life and death
was it too bring me peace or just a short and meaningless breath

in loving me thee thou know'st i am forsworn
but thou art twice forsworn, to me love swearing;
in act thy bed/vow broke' and new faith torn,
in vowing new hate after new love bearing.
but why of two oaths' breach do i accuse thee,
when i break my twenty? i am perjur'd most;
for all my vows are oaths but to misuse thee,
and all my honest faith in thee is lost:
sor i have sworn deep oaths of thy deep
kindness,
oaths of thy love, thy truth, thy constancy;
and,to enlighten thee, gave eyes to blindness,
or made them swear against the thing they see;
for i have sworn thee fair; more perjur'd i,
to swear against the truth so foul a lie!

People pray and hope for something thats not there
God has died and no one cares
they all think that god will forgive them for there evil deeds
but they are so wrong
cause god has dies and no one cares
people want forgiveness but they don't see that
no ones there but there demons that wander into the little minds
they say they follow the path of justice
but they have committed a sin and know
they pray for light but what truly awaits
them is something worse
something dark with no lies,with no mercy
the truth hides beneath there lies.

Pills

We fear loneliness and the darkness that follows us step by step
we take our pills for a cure
but what we want is not the pills
not the lies
but someone to hold on to
we fall faster and faster
we die a little every day
we live on drugs and the false hopes we want
but what we can't see is thru our lies
my vision begins to blur,
reality has shatterd on my face
while death awaits for the pills to take affect

Death is a woman

In the face without masks
Death is a woman
In the moment you know yourself
Death is a woman
At the end of all questions
Death is a woman
As the well of all answers
Death is a woman
At the end of all regrets
Death is a woman
In the liberation through tears
Death is a woman
As the relief from battle
Death is a woman
In the loving embrace
Death is a woman
As the end of all pain
Death is a woman
As the return to the source
Death is a woman
In the dreamless sleep
Death is a woman
In the endless peace
Death is a woman

Life and Death

We say we want life, but what we really want is paradise
We say we fear death but what we really fear is ourselves
The darkness starts to cloud my judgment
I wonder why we think that life is freedom and death is prison
I live day by day but what they don't relies
is that I die a little every day

Father

You work and work
theres no meaning in the word freedom
because work surrounds you to no end
we appreciate your work now and then
we eat your life away little by little
but we thank you at you're grave
when the light starts to fade away and
the darkness surrounds you
you will know what freedom is.

Yeah

Baby show me some skin.
Fucking slow day this has been.
Got nothing left to do but sin.
Unthinkable what I've done and where I've been.
As punishment watched me with a grin.

Angry Heart

It started with my beating heart,
Pounding angry in my chest.
The world around me fell apart,
My soul was set unrest.

My face remained sheet of glass,
As I pondered what he'd done,
Fire blaze,bullets pass,
I kill them one by one.

I hardly hear their dying screams,
Over my own heart's malice beat.
I even touch their fragile dreams,
As they crumble in defeat.

Silently he stands,
His face as blank as mine,
He sees his comrades fall
His anger is devine.

As I make my slow aproach,
to end the story here,
I can hear his poisioned laughter,
Ringing in my ear.

In mortal combat we engage,
Our hatred all to clear,
My mind and body rage,
Against the ever pressing fear.

His face, his presence,
To much to bare,
Despite his evil essence,
For him I still do care.

He tore my will apart,
Much to my unrest,
It ended with my beating heart,
Stoping angry in my chest.


Figured I'd flow with the overall the worlds gone to hell mood. ;)
