Grouphug | 22 comments all right:


For those portrayed
In the movies
Silent and grey
Enchanting smiles
Imposing figures
Dramatic gestures
twisting, turning
Falling over
For an audience to be taken away from this life
For admiration
Pride in what you do
Naked in front of the public’s gaze
Better think that divorce through
Show the perfect family
It’s 1922
Unaware of what this enterprise will do
What it will become
Cranking the camera, arms ache 4 days after
Worth the hassle
To walk through the aisles in theatres
and see the the amazement on people faces
At these moving pictures
At what you created
Using so little
Imagination and enthusiasm
Won’t let this die on it’s feet
We’re onto something good here
Satisfaction
And where are the stars?
Ours
Rudolph Valentino doing his noble best
Arbuckle and Keaton
Causing belly troubles
People stop and gawp
This isn’t like vaudeville
It’s getting everywhere
People’s awe, getting their attention
and I thought you said it was only for the lower classes?
Telling a story - watch enthralled
Piano playing - seems so far off
We’re in this play too
Don’t go thinking theatre is mother superior
Better watch out
Movie producers waving contracts - cameramen - the stars - following behind- smoking cigars, speaking of the riches, are paving gold
In that small town called Hollywood.

Does anyone mind if I post mine?

Who am I?
I ask myself everyday
And the answer is always different
Yet I am always me
Each morning I wake
A different person then the previous
Subtle little changes
That add up over time
I shouldn’t keep my name
It belongs to someone else
I will try to stay the same
But I will always change

Mirvan. Ereon (mirvanereon) | 61 comments SINCE I LOST YOU

I started looking for a new morphine -
I have gone tired of cyanide.
It was a venom I craved
To destroy all traces of his last embraces.
But the psychosis of these cyanotic sighs
Were empty and still aquamarine.

Now, my ampethamine, my codeine,
Hallucinogenic panacea,
GIve me some rest lest I die
Without the mercy of a smile.
Give me the last memories
Of long ago and make me feel
The love in my synaesthetic consciousness.

I still see you as the color red.
I still hear the sound of honey
Dripping when I hear your name.
The taste of semen is in my mouth
When you tell me you love me.
That you still love me.
And will never forget about me.

Please, barbiturate,
Since I lost you
I am finding a new morphine -
I need some sleep
And some dreams
To carry me away from here
Where the sickness of life
Without you is the death of me.

Carry me home.
I am back
And this time
I am not leaving
Without you.

My poetry isn't that good compared to all yours :D

Anyway here's my poem:

Without You
by Alicia


Without You there's no light,
No guide to the darkness.
Without You there's no happiness, no joy,
As it was you that completed my life.
Without you there's no adventure, no freedom
As I stay trapped in my life long prison.

Without You there's no love, no kisses by the sunset,
No one to say I'm beautiful even when I doubt it,
No one to say 'I'm there for you",
And your reassuring arms wrapping around me,
comforting me and telling me its going to be alright.

Without You, there's no purpose, no meaning in life,
Nothing to pursue or have a passion for,
When I know that passion was you.
Without you there's no laughing, no smiles,
as I drown in my unshed tears of sadness.
Without you there's no comfort, no safety,
as I feel in danger and insecure.
Without you there's no good, nothing pure,
as my soul turns black and eats me from the inside out.

Without You I'm empty and lifeless as a ghost.
Without you I've let my fears overcome me,
let my sea of emotions carry me into oblivion,
and I don't exist any more.

With you, I felt alive.
Your easy going smile and your love,
was all that I needed in my life.
With you, I experienced what it truly felt like to be in love, so thank you.
I never realized the meaning of "living like there's no tomorrow", until now.
There is no tomorrow, no next week, no next year.
Because you're gone.
And as I grow old and you stay young,
will you call me beautiful then?
As I gaze at the clouds wondering if you can see me,
hoping that this was just some bad dream,
I'd wake up to find you next to me,
holding my hand.

With you or without you,
I will love you,
always.

Kelly (KellyLovesMagnusBane) | 3 comments Okay so my writing is not the best. i dont go by patteren rules or things like that and some of them are short... Yes i know what your think.... but Express Yourself, right?
anyway here we goo........................

Don't

Don't say you ever trusted me
Because it will make it harder
Don't say you ever cared for me
because i will feel so guilty
And please don't ever, ever say you loved me
because it would break me heart
to watch myself walk away from you
forever...


Yeah... then End!!!!......not that greath but tell me what u think!?!?

Ruby | 15 comments So for school I was supposed to write a poem about peace. Enjoy!

Their hands are clasped in one another's.
Their knuckles white and clenched.
They are waiting and hoping
That peace will come

Their hair blows in the wind
Ashes streak their tear-stained cheeks
Their noses are red with cold
But burns cover their innocent bodies
Scars and wounds and gashes

Their lips are chapped
Knees skinned
But their shoulders are back
Standing tall, indivisible.
Hoping that peace will come

They are the children of war
The children of today.
And patiently, silently, discreetly,
They wait for the day
When peace will come

I have to do a lot of poetry for English class. like 10 original poems written by me, 1 written for me by someone else and two song lyrics about a topic. My topic is "Originality." With a motto of something like "Don't be afraid to be different. If anybody has any ideas, I would be eternally grateful.

JazzyCat (dayandnightgirl) Shhh
can you hear that girl
begging to be heard
struggling to keep quiet?


no
of course you can't
because you never could
you are deaf to your own daughter

so
don't be suprised if
she is suddenly dead
or if she cuts too deep

because
you can't hear her
you can't see her
screaming through her fingers

she
is trying her best
to be a good girl
to be so very happy

but
she has figured out
(on her own, by the way)
that it's not that easy

everyone
sees her as a fun happy girl
and sure, sometimes she is
but most of of time she's not

what
has happened to the girl
that she once was
what has she become

if
she looks in the mirror now
she doesn't know the person in it
she has lost herself and she can't heal


so
go ahead, shut her up
listen to the lies she spins
as she slowly crumbles away
