What! people submitting stuff, barely a few hours after the thread opened! scandalous. And no italics in sight! I'm presuming, this is not for the competition side of things: so here goes nothing.... Poetry thread is a go go go!:
Trouble belongs to me,
I will tell the you the great wonders of my life,
daring you to disagree.
In slow and entrenched disappointment;
my heart does solemnly bleed;
The sun is the source of my life;
in more then a single way,
it helps me to breathe.
Happiness and sorrow works in twine,
destined to be together,
like the heart and my mind.
Work is on par excellence;
like heaven doth poetry,
though my work takes forever;
and though my tongue is not of great wit;
I do beg forgiveness;
for trying to be perfect,
to try to offer a leaf so short,
hoping that you read and reread,
and of poor, shabby, honesty,
and in truth denial,
that my pen,
my humble sword,
and will always be:
of the worst quality.
and to end on but a sad note,
should tell you everything;
everything you wish to know about me,
for my life belongs to you and me,
like trouble belongs to sleep.
and this is one I'm working on (truth be told, I never finished a poem in my life):
My lover is my best friend,
She's my wife, she's my soul mate.
My mother's a darling,
Her grandchild's awesome.
My father died a fine man,
he left quite the gentleman.
Three is a magic number and I was going to post a third... but I don't have a third... :(
Ps. I tend to write about other people, cultures, friends, family... id est, this ain't me. Peace out.
