    Quick Poetry

    Discussion in 'Writing Prompts' started by Lyssa, Mar 29, 2009.

    This is kind of like "50 Word Short Story" thing, but with poetry. I won't set a limit on how long it can be, but make it pretty short. But write a poem about whatever theme you've been giving. Try not to think too much.

    I'll start with a theme-- Green eyes

    Green eyes are wide
    with pure pleasure
    at the coming tide
    from natures treasure.

    The park bench is cold
    As I slight right over
    But I shant be bold
    By giving a cold shoulder

    [pathetic, I know, I know :p]

    They say true love exists,
    But I yet have to see,
    A single man or woman,
    Not hurt by this thing.

    Music sings,
    it strums and chimes.
    Music lives,
    it moves all the time.

    Meat? Interesting....Ok...

    As I stand at the grill
    And watch the kids run 'round
    I wonder what I did to deserve
    Such an awesome life
    But little did I know
    As I sat and wondered
    My meat was burning,
    Melting my butter.

    Lol

    Ok....theme- Grass

    Grass, they say, is very unique,
    It comes in many forms, many tucks and nicks.
    A blade here sharp, another blunt,
    Watch out! that may be hiding a killer bug.

    As it loads I do my homework
    It takes so long I get it done
    But when it finally, after long, appears
    It always seems to crash.
    The internet is a ghastly thing.
    I'd rather use a book.

    Caressing your sweet face
    I commit your features
    To memory,
    Memorizing your every move
    As you reach out
    To reciprocate.

    In my own mess
    Of tears and rags
    I watch that ring
    He gave me fall
    In slow motion
    Like an action movie-slowed
    As it sparkles one last time

    Oh, that was good!!

    Oook.

    Um...

    As I step out into the
    Cold, dry air
    I wonder why
    You hurt me like this
    Wonder why
    You told me you loved me
    Before killing me
    Like this
    Oh, and giving me this hurt


    Ok.

    Perfect.
    This'll be bad.

    she said

    but I jumped in

    and frankly don't care
    even if it is bad
    I can make it through the storm
    because I'll always
    have you,
    "I do"​

    The way they waddle
    Makes me think of life
    And how we should
    Just waddle through
    Life, without a care
    Love eachother
    And always dare
    To dream
    And love
    And laugh
    And waddle
    Through life without a care.

    Under an umbrella of lies,
    we huddle in the emptiness of false hope.
    Through repition and reward
    we make it the truth, until everything is just and area of grey.
    The air becomes tainted;
    The worst kind of pollution.

    with blind eyes and an apathetic mind,
    we sabotage ourselves with white lies.
    No greater are we than what we have said.
    I've been the victim of lies,
    but more often the author, because I know too well that
    Ignorance is bliss.

    They say I look just like you, mother
    I don't see the resemblence
    They say we sound just the same, mother
    I don't hear the resemblence
    They say our smiles are just the same
    But I don't know, you never smiled, mother
    So how could I know the resemblence?
    No one ever tells me, though
    I act just like you did
    And that, mother, is something, I don't want to see
    The resemblence in.

    As into the light she walks,
    She pauses at the gate,
    Looks back remembering,
    Everything she's left.
    But as the dark she leaves behind,
    Breeze rustling up her hair,
    She knows it's time to leave,
    It's time to say goodbye.

    For everyone, death
    Is a ticking bomb
    But, without a certain countdown
    So when it stops
    And erupts
    It surprises everyone
    But you have to let the tears fall
    And you have to remember the happy times
    Cause it's not worth it, to worry and fret
    Just love life
    And never let
    That ticking
    Take over

    I was trying to catch
    some z's
    but kept dreaming you were
    catching me
    I just want to be
    free
    But you seem to so badly want
    me as a girlfriend
    You're invading
    my dreams
    go away, or I'll bust
    at the seams
    This is not what I want to
    dream about
    You are
    my new nightmare
    You are
    my joy,
    pain,
    dispair

    The stars blur by
    His hand in mine
    A breath of fresh night air
    Spinning, skipping, dancing, smiling
    Loving the way this feels
    Like Cinderella, at the ball
    This night, ought to never end
    But soon it does, everyones gone
    The dance floor, deserted and sad
    But I lie in bed, sleep with a smile.
    And in my dreams,
    I'm dancing all the while.
