In this game, I'll give you two words, and you will have to center your poem around them.

Make a poem using the words: Cheese and Sky

message 2: by [deleted user] (new)

Cheese and Sky

Cheese, Swiss cheese to be precise,
The holes in our relationship aren't filled,
But still, I'm drawn into your eyes,
Speechless, my arguments stand still,
Your irises, beautiful bright blue sky,
Even though my scars aren't healed,
They draw out all my confusion, and anger,
Making no doubt, no second thought, no why,
Your smile making the thought a stranger.
But even then, I'm trapped between the cheese and sky.

Wow! That was awesome!

message 4: by [deleted user] (new)

Thanks! I've written and published better though. Do I give two words, or do you give two more?

message 5: by [deleted user] (new)

Let me have a shot.
I must warn you, it won't be good :)

message 6: by [deleted user] (new)

Moon and roses.

message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

The boy skips along the moon lit gardren.
Picking roses and tossing pebbles, as his mom looks on.
A black beetle sits atop one of the rose's blood red petals.
The boy blows it away, then skips on.

message 8: by [deleted user] (new)

Pretty good, you'll get better with more practice too. What's my two words? :)

message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

Thanks, but it was bad

Door and water

message 10: by [deleted user] (new)

There's a door I'm not supposed to open,
A path I'm never, ever to walk, or even foresee,
A choice supposed to be left unchosen,
But I can't escape my curiosity.

There's water I'm not supposed to surf,
A wave never to be sailed by me,
A drop never supposed to come to earth.
But I can't escape the want to be free.

There's someone I'm never supposed to love,
A person I'm to almost, not see,
An individual not chosen for me from above,
But I can't escape my love for thee.

message 11: by [deleted user] (new)

Oh God, you're good!
Want two more words?

message 12: by [deleted user] (new)

((Lol, I'm going to have to give you the link to my poetry))
Sure, sounds like fun. :D

message 13: by [deleted user] (new)

Time and song

message 14: by [deleted user] (new)

Song of Time

Have you heard the song of time,
Ticking and tocking in rhyme?
Seen hands dancing with little clicks,
Moving to the beat of the gears' ticks?
Felt the change as the song goes by
As past the numbers they fly?

message 15: by [deleted user] (new)


message 16: by [deleted user] (new)

Thanks, do you want to give it another try?

message 17: by [deleted user] (new)

Me? Oh, no!
I suck at it! :)

message 18: by [deleted user] (new)

Lol, I was bad at first too! Welp, what's my two words?

message 19: by [deleted user] (new)

Shine and castle

message 20: by [deleted user] (new)

I'm trapped in a castle with thousands of diamonds,
None of these precious jewels ever shine or glimmer,
They just take up space, whispering lies, full of flaws.
All of them are the same, barely a difference in them,
So strange to think I can never leave them behind,
At least one is always near, ever so fake, ever so cruel!
Will I ever find something that is both pretty and real?

message 21: by [deleted user] (new)

Do I even have to say it? : )

Oh, well I'll say it anyway.

message 22: by [deleted user] (new)

Thanks! Next words?

message 23: by [deleted user] (new)

Woods and capture

message 24: by [deleted user] (new)

Who can capture the wind?
So swift, like the wildest river,
Blowing through the woods so fiercely,
At the same time barely brushing petals?

Who knows a trap to snare it?
So crafty and deceitful,
Blowing one way then the next,
At the same time staying on course?

Who can reject the mighty wind?
So sweet, like shade from the sun,
Blowing through free, softly and gently,
At the same time trapping you tightly?

message 25: by [deleted user] (new)

How do you come up with this stuff?

message 26: by [deleted user] (new)

I honestly don't know. XD

Bare and Mars

message 28: by LyraFirefly (new)

LyraFirefly (bookishmusicalfeminist) Walking through the empty field
dark night around my vision real
under the moon and Mars
the bare feeling of lonely solitude

I turn and see the night's becoming
seeing the river, reeling
light and quiet, there's no one there

message 29: by LyraFirefly (new)

LyraFirefly (bookishmusicalfeminist) oops- I forgot a line

message 30: by LyraFirefly (new)

LyraFirefly (bookishmusicalfeminist) the 2nd stanza 3rd line is

seal the bank and there's empty space

message 31: by LyraFirefly (new)

LyraFirefly (bookishmusicalfeminist) High and time

message 32: by [deleted user] (last edited Oct 09, 2020 11:41PM) (new)

Wow! That was great!

message 33: by [deleted user] (new)

I remember lying down on the bare grass counting stars,
Smiling, and laughing, and sharing Mars candy bars',
Watching your face light up, laughing, in the dark,
Hiding away in our secret place, in the old city park,
Happily falling in love with your smile and laugh,
Making small talk, like English and Math.

I remember you kneeling down on one knee,
Smiling, ring flashing in the box, begging me,
Watching your face light up when I said yes,
And when I walked down the isle in my wedding dress,
Happily speaking the vows to bind us forever,
Making the beginning of our life together.

I remember you standing there, holding our first,
Smiling, and crying, your tears of joy burst,
Watching your face light up when she held your finger,
Reading books, and teaching words and songs to her
Happily watching her ride a bike for the first time,
Making the happy first memories of her life.

I remember you walking her down the isle,
Eyes filled with tears you gave her away with a smile,
Watching your face as she said the I do's,
Bittersweet smile when all of it was through,
Happily seeing the love between her and him in one glance,
Making her cherish the moment you and her danced.

message 34: by [deleted user] (new)

Sing and crazy"

Striding from the balcony
head high, on the rooftop
letting my voice flow free
sing as I'll never again

I'm finally released
away from the prison
that kept me confined
the fierce spirit lives

I open my eyes
as if for the first time
seeing the light
my soul is glowing

Passing by
with the crazy glint in my eyes
daring to live
I am alive

Okay, your words are animal and fly.

message 43: by Imtryan153 (new)

Imtryan153 Everybody said pigs can't soar through the sky
But what about the measly fly?
I'll tell you its story, I won't lie
When I tell you the story...of the Fly

Once upon a time it was big and strong
A giant, 6 feet wide and twice as long.
It was nice, it did no wrong
Until a day it changed its song.

One day it boasted too much to the sun,
"No one is bigger than I, the number one."
So the Sun said, "Fine with me, I can be fun."
And created the spider; the Fly was stunned.

"I don't like this creepy-crawly.
Three times as big as me and five times as tall-y.
I apologize, Sun! I said, "I'm sorry"
Make me smaller, able to fly, and much less gnarly!"

The Sun obliged, glad the fly changed its tune
Sun said, "It'll be a minute, really soon."
As it mustered up the power to grant this boon
"Abracadabra!" and away the fly zoomed.

And how the fly got its buzz?
That's a different tale.
I'm glad I've earned your trust
With my stories so hale.
But I really must be going,
Yes, I'm glad I could regale
But goodbye for now,
I must turn tail.

Hey, that was really good!

Imtryan153 Oh, thanks!
The next two words are...
Mistake and accident

message 47: by [deleted user] (new)

No prob!
Does LuminescentFirefly want to go next?

message 48: by LyraFirefly (new)

LyraFirefly (bookishmusicalfeminist) Anyone can go!

message 49: by [deleted user] (new)

An accident, a mistake,
Worthless, too afraid,
Ugly, weird, obese,
Stupid, drama queen.
All of these thoughts,
All of these taunts,
Spinning out of control,
My tears spilling in the cold,
Imperfections everywhere,
Pain, but no one cares,
Mocking laughs, fake friends,
Disappointment, near the end,

Heaven reached down through your eyes,
Brought me closer to the painted skies,
You said i was no mistake, perfect for you,
Worth more than this earth could hold,
Courageous and bold,
Smart, strong,
I belong,
All of these words, broken made whole,
All of these words, from my heart to soul,
Spinning out of control in the feel of your love,
My once broken wings, soaring above,
Perfection now that i know its there,
I have pain, but now you care,
Honey laugh, a real friend,
This is just the beginning, not the end.

Your poems are beautiful Rachel.
