Rules: No being mean.
Helpful criticism is welcome.
Any type of poetry is allowed.
You may post favourite poems etc, but make sure you credit the poet.
That is all.


To start it all off, I wrote this just now. I don't like it too much, but eh Imma leave it. Any thoughts, whether simple or in-depth would be welcome.

What if I told you I could help?
Or rid you of your trouble?

What if I told you that you could be yourself?
Or that you could be blissful?

What if I told you I could set you free?
Or set you up high?

What if I told you that it isn't all you think it to be?
Or that it isn't a goodbye?

What if I told you I was death?




And then this;

I remember a time,
when I didn't have to worry about crime.

When my biggest worry was which toy?
Or who's that boy?

But then as I grew,
I found problems anew.

I had to go to class,
And now make sure I don't get into uni last.

Eventually I'll have a job,
where I'll have to deal with some knob.

And everyday that'll be it,
Until I've become some old git.

But life isn't all that bad.
It doesn't have to be all sad.

I've found love of my life,
Who can cause me no strife.

And I have friends all around,
And I'm glad it was them that I found.

So yes life moves too fast,
But it can be an absolute blast.

So whilst I have this life of mine,
I'll make sure that it'll be all fine.

Cause I don't want life to bring me down,
I don't want to look at all with a frown.

I just want to be free,
I simply want life to be filled with glee.

My favorite poem is this piece of artwork from one of my favorite books possibly ever, The Perks of being a Wallflower. Its kinda a trigger though so..Trigger Warning.

A Person, A Paper, A Promise
“Once on a yellow piece of paper with green lines
he wrote a poem
And he called it "Chops"
because that was the name of his dog
And that's what it was all about
And his teacher gave him an A
and a gold star
And his mother hung it on the kitchen door
and read it to his aunts
That was the year Father Tracy
took all the kids to the zoo

And he let them sing on the bus
And his little sister was born
with tiny toenails and no hair
And his mother and father kissed a lot
And the girl around the corner sent him a
Valentine signed with a row of X's
and he had to ask his father what the X's meant
And his father always tucked him in bed at night
And was always there to do it

Once on a piece of white paper with blue lines
he wrote a poem
And he called it "Autumn"
because that was the name of the season
And that's what it was all about
And his teacher gave him an A
and asked him to write more clearly
And his mother never hung it on the kitchen door
because of its new paint

And the kids told him
that Father Tracy smoked cigars
And left butts on the pews
And sometimes they would burn holes
That was the year his sister got glasses
with thick lenses and black frames
And the girl around the corner laughed
when he asked her to go see Santa Claus
And the kids told him why
his mother and father kissed a lot
And his father never tucked him in bed at night
And his father got mad
when he cried for him to do it.


Once on a paper torn from his notebook
he wrote a poem
And he called it "Innocence: A Question"
because that was the question about his girl
And that's what it was all about
And his professor gave him an A
and a strange steady look
And his mother never hung it on the kitchen door
because he never showed her
That was the year that Father Tracy died
And he forgot how the end
of the Apostle's Creed went

And he caught his sister
making out on the back porch
And his mother and father never kissed
or even talked
And the girl around the corner
wore too much makeup
That made him cough when he kissed her
but he kissed her anyway
because that was the thing to do
And at three a.m. he tucked himself into bed
his father snoring soundly

That's why on the back of a brown paper bag
he tried another poem

And he called it "Absolutely Nothing"
Because that's what it was really all about
And he gave himself an A
and a slash on each damned wrist
And he hung it on the bathroom door
because this time he didn't think
he could reach the kitchen.”

-Dr.Earl Reum

Ah thanks I'll edit that in there. I had been looking for the author a while now.
