    Now that my entire poetry collection has been digitized, I feel motivated to post more of my poetry. I am not good at much, but what I am good at, I really take it and run with it. I have been writing poetry since I was about 13, and I wrote quite a bit when I was 15-16, cranking out as much as 5 or more poems a day in study hall. I guess boredom can breed good things sometimes :lol: I used to say everything I wrote was bad, now I do not feel the same way. I am becoming more confident in my writing, and I can only see that as a good thing. Now it is time to share this with the world. So without further adieu, and less talking :p here is my poetry!!


    A moon-shone beacon is sparkling out there
    Out in the cold, black, still evening waters
    Just a tiny, minuscule white dot on the horizon
    Like a small child against a world of giants
    It is as still as a tigress stalking her prey
    As it silently glides along the crested waves
    You cannot help but stare at the sight
    For the sight is quite simple, yet grand
    The night is warm, salty, brisk, damp
    The epitome of a seacoastal vision
    Seems as if you would enjoy spending more time
    That you would love to give your life to the sea
    But I think only those truly dedicated would
    In fact, I believe this is why they sail
    The fishermen, the sailors, even the recreationalists
    Because they love the adventure, the greatness
    They admire the great beauty of the sea
    Even of things as minuscule as a beacon
    A seagull could be like a godsend to them
    Just because they enjoy the surroundings
    I am still adamant about the loveliness
    The blue-green melding of sky and sea
    Moonlight reflecting off of the mirrorlike glass
    Much like a heart reflected to the world
    I will never forget the awe of the sea
    Even when I am floating around somewhere
    Down with all the other lost souls
    Hoping that we will become one with the sea
    Hoping we will become sapphires in the sand

    You formally address her as the temptress
    Beauty of Venus, the craftiness of Medusa
    Caught between desire and danger
    The hunger for lust is ever-powerful
    You know she can't put you under her spell
    Only I have the power to summon you to my side
    No other woman will simply do, you see
    I'm the best, the greatest, the supreme seductress
    The Mary Magdalene of the twenty-first century
    A Mona Lisa for a new millennium
    I'm even racier than Madonna in the eighties
    But I have the class of a young Jackie Kennedy
    I am no courtesan and I am not cheap
    I'm the girl next door with a sexy flair
    Hypnotized by my eyes of fire and steel
    You'll never go back once you come to me
    We share a kind of mutual love for each other
    Something that will be cast for eternity
    When I kiss you, the passion is ablaze
    Call me the temptress, pure evil, I won't care
    Because you always come back for more

    Rainbows (Lost Faith)

    It seems after every rainstorm, a rainbow appears
    Colored magic coming out of nowhere
    An aura of toned lights so beautiful
    I know that everyone has their own little rainbow
    One that they can follow to reach their destinies
    Never to fade or to disappear
    A constant sign that all is right in the world
    I never understood the full meaning of faith
    Just another lonely shell of a person
    Never looking for faith, hope, or charity
    Because I didn't believe in those sort of things any longer
    When I looked outside, after all of the tears and rain had fallen
    I too noticed how the rainbow was in harmony
    And how bright it shown to see me smile
    Then I knew that it was something right
    That it must be the truth after all
    You will never be forgotten, no matter how lonely you are

    Vociferation (The Echo)

    Alone, a voice was heard but no one listened
    They seemed not to notice the little power within me
    No one wanted to believe in me or trust any longer
    Thinking that if I might choose to falter, they would follow
    Like they would not be able to hear me
    Just because of what they had done in their lives
    Reckless abandon, the cause of all problems
    Nothing to do with me whatsoever
    They stabbed my back, but never waited to see if I was alright
    They used and abused me, but never stuck around to see the final results
    Manipulative, lying, cheating, deceiving
    Hating, slandering, ill repute and all
    They managed to band together and overcome me
    They somehow got into my mind and stole all of my dreams
    I never thought I would be that one
    I believed they would always stand right by me
    Sometimes you never know with friends like these
    One day they can be the only place of solitude
    The next day, they can be your worst enemy
    Now I have finally figured out the plan
    I have come up with my own grand solution
    I know that my echo won't bounce off the cave of darkness any longer
    I will not stand alone in the world
    And I will no longer have to worry
    My voice will be heard after all, loud and clear, forever

    The years fly by, but don't forget the past
    Keep the memories somewhere special
    Keep them under lock and key in your heart
    Then you will be able to share those memories with special people
    Smile when you think of the good times
    Cry a river over the bad, even though it's all over
    Never forget the past
    Always treasure the present
    And look forward to the future

    Just be yourself
    Living day by day
    Hopes and dreams all in your heart
    Never let anyone take them from you
    No one is perfect
    Everyone is flawed
    You just have to learn to accept yourself for who you are
    Never try to be like the next person, be special and unique
    Don't judge them
    They will judge you
    People will respect you for showing your true colors
    Nobody wants to be friends with a great pretender
    Just be yourself
    That's perfect enough

    Sunny Girl

    Sunny girl, at least you're happy
    Living in a world full of fear
    Trying to make the best out of a bad situation
    You can sit and smile and pretend it's alright
    You can't fake emotions
    You can't hide your true feelings from me
    I can see right through your thin shield
    Let it all out, come along and cry with me
    Let rivers of anguish flow from your eyes
    Sunny girl, it will be alright

    Wow, I want to pick out one as an example but all of your poems are equally beautiful and touching in their own way. Thank you so much for sharing, Witty :D. They are a pleasure to read and a treasure to share. I look forward to reading more! Keep up the great work; it shows.

    It's not about anyone in particular, just something I had thought of on the fly :p

    Work Of Art

    Doesn't he know how special he is
    How he can cure the pain of the world
    With just one kiss
    He doesn't fit into conventionality
    Beyond the realm of reality
    He's such a work of art
    He's captured my heart
    The greatest work of art
    Had me entranced from the start
    Better than any Degas or Picasso
    I'm going to my private art show
    The true beauty shines in his eyes
    His mysticism shows no disguise
    A unique work of art
    Two souls that will never part
    An amazing work of art
    Forever he'll have my heart

    The Best That I Can Do

    From less than fortunate beginnings
    To auspicious ends
    I'll be here forever
    I'll love you till the end
    It's the best that I can do
    Just to love you
    Through the tribulations of life
    The ups and downs
    I'll never force a smile
    Never fake a frown
    It's the best that I can do
    Just to love you
    Sometimes I have it out with you
    Sometimes you have it out for me
    I guess this is real love
    'Cause I'm too blind to see
    Even though I'm starting to get sappy
    I know in the end, I'll always be happy

    Skeletons in the Closet

    Sometimes it's hard to conjure the past
    The fleeting memories in your head won't last
    Trying to have more happiness than pain
    The bad is all that seems to remain
    Like pouring salt into open wounds
    Ripping through your heart like a typhoon
    Your exes, your secrets, all exposed
    All of the things that no one knows
    Trying to shut the door again
    The secrets and lies are seeping in
    Have to keep the closet door closed
    Don't want all of your skeletons exposed
    It's impossible to know everything about someone
    That's just what keeps it fun

    I get a kick out of this one :coffee:

    A Nice Cup of Joe

    Brown liquid gold, the drink of the gods
    How I adore thee so
    Your alluring scent, you're a beautiful brew
    Be still my beating heart
    It won't listen because you're coursing through my veins
    You spin my head in circles, keep me up at night
    But you're my favorite addiction yet
    I like you the way I like my men
    Dark, bitter, with a little bit of sweetness added
    As I often am, but you bring joy to my life
    Some add too much filler, but you are meant to be strong
    Hot or cold, I love you so
    You are so well-revered
    People go to the ends of the earth just to find you
    Your fruit comes from plants, and sometimes animal poop
    It just shows how great you are
    But I draw the line there
    I like bold flavors, but not that bold
    You make me want to run a marathon, in my mind at least
    Sometimes you just get me through the day
    I could have you morning, noon, and night
    You're so great, I could just drink you up
    The glass is always half full with you
    I dread to pull the plug
    You'll always be there for me when I need you most
    What a wonderfully smooth roast

    Old maid, I don't want to play this game
    Should know better than to bet with a losing hand
    The joker and the fool, the jester and king's rule
    I was a spinster long before my time
    But I don't spin balls of yarn
    I just stand on a planet with a spinning axis
    Years pass by before I have the chance to change anything
    As if extra time could salvage this existence
    I just sit quietly and hope someone will find me
    Before I forget what it's like to have human contact
    Need to find a shoddy backup plan
    Hey, where are all of my cats?

    What happens after the phoenix dares to rise from the ash?
    Does it lose its colors, its pride, its ability to fly?
    The phoenix is strong and proud
    It can fly high above the clouds
    Even with its broken wing, broken crown, broken spirit
    It will always rise again
    Its rebirth is neverending
    As long as it dares to strive, to stay alive, it will never die
    Because the need to thrive is something that can't be taken away
    No matter what may cause your downfall
    You have the power to rise above it all

    I hear children playing outside
    Does it bring back memories of times past?
    I can't remember being so carefree
    I always felt older than my age
    Oh my God, how long has it been?
    I cannot believe your kids are so big
    It's almost time for another reunion
    Where has all the time gone?
    I haven't done enough with my life
    So, basically I am still a kid
    It's not so bad to be that way
    To stay young at heart
