mic | 82 comments Blind Sight
by mic

people drive by
with their metal blinders
seeing only and always
where they want to be

walking in nature
I see where I am
where I was
where I want to be

observation begets intrigue
I want to know
to cram the universe into my mind
that stars may shine through my eyes

people drive by
with their mental blinders
thoughts trapped in boxes on wheels
because they've lost the wonder

mic | 82 comments Spanish poem = not mean anything to me but a couple recognizable words surrounded by gibberish. Could you post it with a translation? I would love to read it still.

message 21: by Aysha (new)

Aysha (ayshabkhan) Al - that poem was really nice :)
And mic - "Blind Sight" was, like, woah.
I'm working on something right now, we'll see if it goes anywhere. :)

Hanzleberry (doughboyissweet) | 1065 comments I need to write something still. I like your poem, Mic! :D I really like the style. However, I don't agree with the concept. But, that DOESN'T mean I don't like the poem. I love your writing. Definitely amazing. :D

Hanzleberry (doughboyissweet) | 1065 comments Demise
by Hanzle

Desperate to end this downfall,
curious to unearth something more,
a motive for a greed and thirst,
a stimulus to be infinitely wise,
for how I tremble at this demise,

Power is too potent to be handled,
the threads of this body would unravel too soon,
self-control would be bitter medicine to swallow,
why couldn't we hold compassion in these hands instead,

I'm questioning this fate,
and fearing it's too late,
for this is our demise.


message 24: by mic (new)

mic | 82 comments Why do you think curiosity is our downfall? Correct if I'm wrong, but the message I get from this poem is that wanting to know about the world around us leads to "greed and thirst" and ultimately our demise.


message 25: by mic (new)

mic | 82 comments Haha, there goes my curiosity again in that last comment, always wanting to understand. How appropriately ironic ;]


message 26: by Hanzleberry (new)

Hanzleberry (doughboyissweet) | 1065 comments I didn't say curiosity is our downfall. I said I am curious to know why we want greed and power.

Caitlan (lionesserampant) | 2869 comments same here


Curious
By Kirilee

I am always curious
What am I?

I search and ponder
What am I?

I pounce and eat
I crouch and pounce
The world is my plaything
What am I?

I am the Cat
And Curiosity missed me


message 28: by Hanzleberry (new)

Hanzleberry (doughboyissweet) | 1065 comments Alex, you got the meaning of my poem right. And thanks for your compliments, Al! :D And Mic is not saying she thinks omniscience is good, or that she wants it. She wants to take in the beautiful things the world offers. If that made sense... Hem hem. I word things really weird. But, yes...

I really LOVE your poem, Kirilee! :D It's cute!


message 29: by mic (new)

mic | 82 comments Oh, that makes more sense. But I asked Kristen to read it and tell what she thought it meant, and she thought the same thing I did before she knew what I thought. That was a lot of thinking ;] Anyway, at least I'm not the only one who derived that interpretation.
