  1. Sounds a bit fun? :D
    No?
    Yes?
    Maybe you think poetry is all about rhyme and depression. That is a major generalization, and practically false, but poetry is fun :) It doesn't have to have rhyme scheme, only 14 lines, all those things you've learned to be the exact, tip-to-point regulations. No, poetry isn't like that. It's all forms, even without a form if you want. So how about we try to make a Poetry thread for the fun of it? :)

    No regulations. Only exception (I know, it's a regulation, but still) is to not make any offensive gestures towards other people's work, or to submit work that is blatantly offensive.

    It doesn't have to rhyme.
    It doesn't have to be amazing.
    It doesn't have to be written by you.
    But as long as you enjoy it, you'll be happy :)
    (We like happy people here ;D)

    So, to start it all off, I've made a poem. I'm sure you've all heard of the Mythbusters, hmm?

    Jamie Hyneman's got a gun!
    He's testing physics, you'd better run!
    Coming towards you, he hit the ground running!
    He may be a walrus, but dang! He's cunning!
    You dive left! Slide right!
    He's right behind ya, middle a' night!
    He curls his twisty stache, smirking...
    What equations are in his mind, lurking...
    He'll grab you up, to his lab!
    He'll take a knife, and with a jab,
    He'll stab that ballistics gelatin base!
    He'll then laugh, at your face.
    And you'll disappear.
    Without a trace.

  3. Awesome :p And by the way, I thank you to use a spoiler and a reminder on how it's religious. Don't want any flame wars started, lol. I liked it :) It was good :3
  4. This is a poem, it is pretty fun.
    It's a hobby that's good for everyone
    It's almost as fun as making a pun!
    Have a good time and you've already won!
    If you do it right, you'll never want to be done!
    Now give me the money, I have a gun.
  5. Haikus are easy.
    You can make them without thought.
    See? I just made one.
  6. Lol, so true :p
  7. 'Just get over it, ' they say
    I wish I could find a way
    Living with it day by day
    Memories won't go away

    Medication helps to sway
    Many feelings of dismay
    But they do fail to decay
    The loss that one does survey

    I read this somewhere... a few weeks ago...

  9. Here is a song (those are poems right?) that has ment a lot to me throughout the years and I thought I would share it.

    I'll light the fuse and I'll set the dam to blow,
    flooding the entire town below and all that I've known.
    What wasn't nailed down will be washed away.
    My hands are shaking but I will not hesitate.
    I found the strength to face.
    Because the place I fear the most,
    is the place I have to go to see the truth.
    "It's okay to feel lost, it just means you're alive",
    I've told myself a thousand times.
    From the ashes we will rise.
    It's okay to feel lost, walk through the flames and see,
    you're only left with what you need.
    We're only here for the journey.
    Am I bold enough to be underlined?
    Like sand sifting through time, it all falls in line.
    Life is a minefield and on one side I'm stuck.
    I broke the key on the door I tried to unlock.
    I'm never giving up.
    Because the things that haunt you are the things you didn't do.
    Not what you did.
    We find the truth through tragedy!
    I'm finding new ways to make the same mistakes.
    Putting my dreams onto paper and then folding them into planes.
    Then I let them go because when in Rome.
    I set fire to what I love the most!

    I just want to feel alive!
    I just want to feel alive!


    "It's okay to feel lost, it just means you're alive",
    I've told myself a thousand times.
    From the ashes we will rise.
    It's okay to feel lost, walk through the flames and see,
    you're only left with what you need.
    We're only here for the journey.
    We'll find the truth through tragedy!

  10. Wow, those were both incredibly excellent :) I like stories behind poetry, and especially meaningful ones. Thank you so much for sharing those, guys : )

  11. Oh, and here's another song I enjoy a lot. Besides its... fairly gloom meaning, I love it. It hurts but it touches you if you read the lyrics, and interpret them. (And yes, songs apply :)) Hope you enjoy it, guys.

    P.s., I had trouble with the URL saving, so here's the video link :)

  12. Hello, this is a poem,
    That I made with glee,
    You better like it,
    Or I'll kick you in the knee.

    I actually made that just now.

  13. Here's a short, original, Minecraft-related poem I wrote. WALL OF TEXT.

    On a dark, lonely night
    when no passive mobs stirred,
    lived a player named Notch
    with a dream most absurd:

    "I'm so tired of this game;
    It's no challenge at all,
    And the only way to die
    Is to starve or to fall."

    So he drew up some drawings
    And brewed up some potions
    And cast off the limits
    Of pre-conceived notions.

    He pondered and he thought
    And he struggled and he fought.
    But it all was for naught...

    Until a chicken pushed him into the brewing pot.

    When he woke, he exclaimed,
    "I see now, it's so clear!
    I just need to get some
    Hostile mobs up in here!"

    He found pigs and some pigments
    (Green, white, grey, and black),
    And some gunpowder dust
    From his programmer's sack.

    He mixed them together
    And gave them a great squeeze.
    And he painted the surface
    Like the leaves on the trees

    But he soon was aware
    Of a blank, vacant stare.
    A voice passed through the air...

    "Ssssssss. That'sssss a nice house you've got there."

    If you don't get it, read this:

    The creeper was originally designed from the pig's design - it's just stretched out and colored different. Notch is the creator of Minecraft, and this poem is supposed to be a whimsical portrayal of him designing the creeper.

  14. Yes, that is so short.
    (Sorry, I'm just not a fan of big walls of words.)

  15. These are the lyrics to a song, and as cami said, those are poems :D
    Hold me now I need to feel relief
    Like I never wanted anything
    I suppose I'll let this go and find a reason I'll hold on to
    I'm so ashamed of defeat
    And I'm out of reason to believe in me
    I'm out of trying to get by

    I'm so afraid of the gift you give me
    I don't belong here and I'm not well
    I'm so ashamed of the lie I'm living
    Right on the wrong side of it all

    I can't face myself when I wake up
    And look inside a mirror
    I'm so ashamed of that thing
    I suppose I'll let it go
    Untill I have something more to say for me
    I'm so afraid of defeat
    And I'm out of reason to believe in me
    I'm out of trying to defy

    I'm so afraid of the gift you give me
    I don't belong here and I'm not well
    I'm so ashamed of the lie I'm living
    Right on the wrong side of it all

    Hold me now I need to feel complete
    Like I matter to the one I need

    I'm so afraid of the gift you give me
    I don't belong here and I'm not well
    I'm so ashamed of the lie I'm living
    Right on the wrong side of it all

    Now I'm ashamed of this
    I am so ashamed of this
    Now I'm so ashamed of me
    I am so ashamed of me...

  17. The Mob Revue

    Of Mobs there are none like the creeper
    which turns each miner into a leaper
    His grave is all dug
    As he dies with a shrug
    Who knows if he was a believer.

    The zombie is simple in aim
    The head of his victim to claim
    Their numbers have grown
    Now that villagers groan
    Their plan to conquer is plain

    The skeletons bones creak and clank
    As denizens of the dark and the dank
    Their bones make a tone
    when they strike one on one
    Sinking arrows in miners to the shank

    The zombie pigman is a queer sort of mob
    He wanders about with no job
    And when they are struck
    their swords are then stuck
    In your gut to the point that you sob

    The enderman is a mystery too
    For he spawns only two by two
    He is found in the end
    But also does spend
    His vacations on the overworld "zoo"

    The Ghast is a giant white cube
    whose blasts makes him always the rube
    In the nether his wail
    causes miners to pale
    Lest they're caught unawares like a newb.

    The latest discovered is the bat
    Who no, does not wear a hat
    He flits up and flits down
    Even hangs upside down
    So you'd not confuse him for a rat.

    Now some withered skeletons have appeared
    and have miners real cautions and "skeered"
    Their black menace glowers
    As over miners it towers
    But for it's skull it is truly revered

    A wither itself is a mystery
    It has a very short history
    It spawns in the nether
    Three heads really are better!
    But it leaves you all blown up and blistery
  18. Nihilism

    To create things from nothing is absurd
    that is why we have the overworld
    The nether it is neither
    nor better than either
    is the end.

  19. I should post some depressing and morbid stuff.
    Haikus are easy
    But sometimes they don't make sense
    refrigerator.
  20. This is a song that reminds me of myself:

    The secret side of me I never let you see
    I keep it caged, but I can't control it
    So stay away from me, the beast is ugly
    I feel the rage and I just can't hold it

    It's scratching on the walls, in the closet, in the halls
    It comes awake, and I can't control it
    Hiding under the bed, in my body, in my head
    Why won't somebody come and save me from this, make it end?

    I feel it deep within, it's just beneath the skin
    I must confess that I feel like a monster
    I hate what I've become, the nightmare's just begun
    I must confess that I feel like a monster

    I, I feel like a monster
    I, I feel like a monster

    My secret side I keep hid under lock and key
    I keep it caged, but I can't control it
    'Cause if I let him out he'll tear me up, break me down
    Why won't somebody come and save me from this, make it end?

    I feel it deep within, it's just beneath the skin
    I must confess that I feel like a monster
    I hate what I've become, the nightmare's just begun
    I must confess that I feel like a monster

    I feel it deep within, it's just beneath the skin
    I must confess that I feel like a monster
    I, I feel like a monster
    I, I feel like a monster

    It's hiding in the dark, it's teeth are razor sharp
    There's no escape for me, it wants my soul, it wants my heart
    No one can hear me scream, maybe it's just a dream
    Maybe it's inside of me, stop this monster

    I feel it deep within, it's just beneath the skin
    I must confess that I feel like a monster
    I hate what I've become, the nightmare's just begun
    I must confess that I feel like a monster

    I feel it deep within, it's just beneath the skin
    I must confess that I feel like a monster
    I've gotta lose control, he something radical
    I must confess that I feel like a monster

    I, I feel like a monster
    I, I feel like a monster
    I, I feel like a monster
    I, I feel like a monster
