Poetry Snowetry
« 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
