Title: Poetry Snowetry
Post by: xiuying hong is brill on October 30, 2014, 07:54:47 PM
Seeing as this is a Shenmue forum, I figure that most of us will be flowery sensitive souls who like to write about emotions, the changing seasons, true love, and other such cliched topics. I know I do! I know James is a latent lyrical mastermind, and Stare has a Haiku fetish, so I hope I can coerce them to contribute something.


I know, I know, after reading my expertly rhymed thread title (snowetry's not a real word by the way, I made it up 8) )you must be eager to read some of my own introspective heart singing. I will post one soon, probably later today.

Better than Floetry:

The seasons change, but I feel hot
Is it weather?
I don't think I care
Loneliness, but not despair
yeah
But I don't feel frosty
hot like a radiator
Just a thought for a penny
I won't get wild like a buck
want to keep contained
Like I was tightly tucked
Then when I make the breakthrough
It's gonna be better than the best luck

Interesting thread
Interesting poem, too
HOW OUR HEARTS SHALL SING!

But not right now, man
I've got a fuckin headache
the shit's just pounding

So i'm off to bed
I'm sure i'll dream of Shen 3
AHHHHHHHHHHHHH MY HEADACHE'S WORSE

I can't think of what to write.
I worry if I try, I won't get it right.

Maybe I'll try when I've got more time.
Perhaps then I'll produce a good rhyme.

Until then, I'll continue to think.
Because otherwise, my poem would suck.

...

Dammit.

My night
has been breeze
listen right
better not "geez".
From the moment
you spoiled my name
I dreamed torment
but don't be lame.
Give me insurance
to feel alright
call an ambulance
to make me bright.

...

On the day the snow turned to rain,
One young man's life would never be the same.
For on that day, he saw his father be killed,
And with a thirst for vengeance, his heart became filled.


Through Sakuragaoka and Dobuita Street,
He asked almost everyone he happened to meet.
His search for people who saw the black car,
Soon led to sailors at Heartbeats Bar.


Seemingly outnumbered, one against two,
The young man knew just what to do.
Good thing his father gave him karate classes;
He easily knocked them right on their asses.


(To be continued, unless someone wishes to help)

Your beauty
It's got my eyes so open
But my nose is wider still
Don't need Vicks any time soon
You got me floating high
Because your levels are high
So much Grace
I would have thought your name was Grace 
But it most definitely ain't
Maybe I'm just assuming
And I've built a dream in my mind
But here's hoping this isn't an illusion.

OK, after reading that poem back, I would just like to clarify that it's not about cocaine.

 I thought it was the best line in the poem too.


When are you going to let your heart sing in this thread, mr. 2 tweet to be sour?

My blackened heart ain't sang in years. This thread has rotten timing, 'cause nowadays nobody hears my poetry and rhyming.

Loneliness batters my body
Thought I was a fly guy
But I guess more like deep fried
Friends, I've a couple
But when the winds weather my bones
Need a lover who ain't no Medusa
With a warm face and heart
Don't wanna be with the wrong love
No sticky murky situations
Ta Bumba
Can't play Mario Cart
Not unless it's with you

Man, Mue, never thought Mario KArt could ever make me cry, but I have now been proven wrong. *sniff*

winter
The season no one wants to be alone
When it comes to Christmas eve
Don't want to be sitting next to some drunk called Steve
There is a some hope
But I struggle to know if it's the truth
or a trope
As when it comes to love I'm dusty
But the sky looks clusty
Want to experience it before I get musty

Seen so many Autumn leaves recently
or more like flowers
Even in winter they persist
like it's catching the glow of the sun rising through the woods
From the east
so bright it makes me squint like clint
This kami a strange contradiction
unnatural
the glare
But it's not about this fakeness that I care
It's your overwhelming honesty that I do
Inspiring me to be realer than your hair

Best floetry i've seen in quite some time, brodo. And that's Orson Welles from Citizen Kane, Jaywalker.

Worth highlighting this Shenmue poem (https://www.facebook.com/groups/Shenmue500K/permalink/747640838644956/) I reckon.

The Facebook-phobic can read it here
The Flame of a Home I Have Never Been.
By Sassi Lee

There are things I've left unfinished
There are things I haven't done
There's an echo in my heart and mind
Of a song I once heard sung
Had I known the path would be so long
I'd still have walked its trail
As I've done so many times before
And never will I fail
To retrace the steps his father left
Now trodden black with vengeance
The rain will soon wash clear again
As his way leads to transcendence
One day we'll see through blurry eyes
A light shine through the doorway
Until then spirits are our guides
And the hurt we feel, friends will allay
We've travelled far, have seen some things
That we never could have guessed
This boy will take us further still
When one day we'll advance his quest
There is more to this, I do not doubt
From home to far across the sea
And never will I lose my faith
That Ryo's life was made for me
Perfecting moves, we've heard the words
Spoken by our elders
Sage advice and wisdom truth
Affords our patience needed shelter
The friends we've all met, lost and loved
We know their faces and their stories
Heard words of comfort, and of pain
Seen his failures, lived his glories
So until the time has come to step
On out into the light
We'll keep his journey in our minds
And continue with the fight
And though I may complain that I
Have not yet met the end
I'll keep on fighting in his style
On that you can depend

Winter breeze
singing an atmospheric tune
like free 1 from Shenmue
oppressive sounds feel more tangible in the blackness of the night
I wish they wouldn't
Too close to the cold nature of the outside
frostbitten lives don't get thawed 
they end up ignored
we need more fire
Been too much bloodfire
there's so much ire
in this supposed season to be irie
on baked street we end up distracted and brains addled
hoping to find solace in the pursuit of Irene
