It was the moon my foetid soul desired, lustily,
the curves of face and crater tried, tested, hungrily.
Entropy wore at my soul 'twixt moonsglow, vapidly,
the babbling of a thousand thousand nights.

Red and pink, painted against alabaster skin, moles
adorning, like the negative of stars on night sky.
Sonderous, craters large and small against my pale face.
It is a miracle I did not fall.

Fervently, time passed as if high deep in that passage,
Churlishly, refusal was my only option and
the Luness, too, had to refuse my passage in turn.
I wonder at the paths I might have walked.

'twixt moonsglow

This is both an enjoyable word pairing and an otherworldly candy bar.
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

There is more than meets the eye
Blackhole heart

Once you have torn all your dreams
Apart
Something needs to fill that
Hole inside your heart

Perhaps there is love
After all
But some people never seem to know
Some people never seem to show

I used to love
The whole world

But a world with no forgiveness
Is not a world worth loving at all

And it all disappeared
Is that what you want to hear

When you realised
That no one loves you, my dear

My life, I always knew
It is about what you do

And what you have inside
Is something you could hide
But if you could just
let it shine

Then you could shine so bright
That all your fears would die

And you could love again
My friend

This is a neat poem! Also if you rearrange the first letter of each stanza as an acrostic, it spells Topibawmata, which sounds like a geographic location.

I appreciate when people post in this thread!
Poetry is a worthwhile endeavor!

My island home was silent brush
What so enraptured 'fore the rush
To hear the sound, with land of lush
Of salttouched sands and endless hush
Of waves upon the open shore.
But then what spoke so through the night?
The sound, of silence, was the blight
As squawking, mocking birds took flight
As I awokke in horror, fright
A crashing near my humble door.

My night foregone and day foreborn,
I went to see with face forlorn
What now? I groaned, my count'nance torn
Its mast erect but sails worn
A ship had crashed before my home.
The hull was shucked, an empty shell
But blood and bone and horrid smell
Were sure of some past mortal hell
With nausea did my belly swell
My stomach churned as sea and foam.

I buried bits between the trees
And scattered 'neath the churning seas
The shinbones, armbones, shattered knees
Who's blood I swept, I hope that he's
In heaven's breast, weeping tears of joy.

Chronologically I wrote this poem before writing the one I posted before. But I wrote it originally in Finnish, so I thought I couldn't post it. But I did my best to translate.


Sometimes I feel like I will kill you my friend
And then neither shall I pity myself

In the cold snow together we will fall
When spring comes and nature calls
Is how we disappear
In this cold year

I cannot be more beautiful
An angel I wonít be
But from the depths of hell
I bring forth
Myself
When I lust for you,
My friend

I hear Mother Earth
It calls for me

It tells me
To lay down and sleep
If you are too tired
Then alive you shall not be

That is how it works
This beautiful Earth
It does not need you
Standing in the dirt

You
My friend
You have a different place to be
In the depths of Hell
Together
With me

It is only natural
When itís you and I
And our love dies

Itís only natural
That my heart breaks
And it aches

I feel hate
I canít take
It no more

It is only natural
That I canít see your face
You never look the same
No more

All of the pain
Itís never the same

Maybe there was never
Nothing
There
At all

Good use of some really compact stanzas here. Adds to the overall poem in this case.

So, I had a pretty strange experience after playing with a VR headset for an hour. After taking the headset off I felt like I was still in virtual reality. Everything was fake and everything was a game - I felt like I could teleport into China or walk through cars. Nothing could harm me.

So naturally I made a poem about it.


"Virtuality"

In my eyes
There are lies
But no disguise
I
Try

Virtuality
Whatís reality
Jumping out of me

Running on the street
Passing through the trees
Passing through me
Something I canít see

Virtuality
Whatís reality
Jumping out of me

Jumping into sea
And shooting through the stars
Dancing in the meadows
And passing through cars

Virtuality
Whatís inside of me
Transporting into dreams

But whatís reality

Virtuality
