A few of my poems

Post by Emylee » Tue Jun 27, 2006 4:13 pm

If anyone's interested. I love wirting poetry so I thought I'd post a few of my favorites that I've written in the past few years. :)

THis first one is my very first attempt at a villanelle. =) It's not perfect but it was a start. I'm very fond of it.


Cradling my torn soul and blackened fears
I lay sprawled out across the scarlet floor.
Forever simmering in blood streaked tears.

Blotchy images not what they appear.
I close my eyes to an infernal world,
cradling my torn soul and blackened fears.

I try to sustain through the hate filled jeers
for the sake of many, and yet I am
forever simmering in blood streaked tears.

I am sifting through dark crowds filled with peers.
I cringe at their morbid composure while
cradling my torn soul and blackened fears.

Slick greasy words are all I can hear
and as they gnaw off rotting limbs I cry out.
(Forever simmering in blood streaked tears.)

I am silenced… waiting to disappear
into the deceitful world of chaos.
Cradling my torn soul and blackened fears-
forever simmering in blood streaked tears.

I Still Love You

I wish I could remember
simplicity and ease.
I wish I could see what it is
that I’ve always wished to seize.

I wish I knew my thoughts
in the midst of pain
I wish I didn’t block them out,
I wish I could abstain.

I wish that you knew me
better than I did.
I wish I didn’t feed this need
to do exactly as you bid.

I wish that I could control
My very thoughts and dreams.
I wish you were less a part of me,
however foolish that may seem.

I wish I knew my purpose,
that I had more shame.
I wish you wouldn’t hurt me
and that you’d take the blame.

I wish you could see what you do
to my frail soul every hour.
I wish the words of you
would not turn in my gut sour.

I wish you’d take the time
when I’m slammed against the wall,
to really understand
how much the children saw.

I wish you wouldn’t hurt me,
As often as you do.
I wish you could just see-
how much I’ve always loved you.

I want to stroke your hair.
I want to hold your hand.
I want to be the one
that you always demand.

Am I supposed to feel this way?
Constantly aware
where you hands are at,
and say only what I dare.

Should I be this scared,
to come to you when called?
Should I think of you,
and always be appalled?

I say I love you now,
and I truly do.
I’ll stay a little longer-
until your words are true.

You love me.
I know it in my soul.
I’ll take the hand I was dealt,
regardless of the toll.

Very good. Dark, but very good!

The last one incredibly moving.

Very nice, I really like them. I like anything that makes me think a little.

Religion is like going to McDonald's. Why should I be enemies with you because you choose to walk and I choose to drive?
