    Share Your Poetry!

    I thought it'd be cool to have a place to share your poetry! You can read and offer feedback or critique (if the writer ASKS for it) on the poems or simply just share.

    I'll go first. Something light to get us started.

    Poetry's Way By: Mariah Glidden (AKA Lonestar22 or LS)

    Driven by forces
    Somewhat unknown.
    Pressing the mind,
    An emotion roams.
    Put into words
    By the tip of a pen.
    An outlet for stress
    And beauty within.
    Poetry comes
    However it pleases.
    Reality slips,
    And peace seises.

    Now something with a bit of emotion.

    Toy Box By: Mariah Glidden

    You looked at me one day
    And liked what you saw,
    But you didnt want risk
    No connections at all.
    Just something to play with
    Pull out of a box.
    Tug on my strings
    Then give me a toss.
    I was a toy.
    Just fun for you.
    No harm done,
    Well, none that you knew.
    With each tug on my strings
    You tugged on my heart.
    Tearing it more
    Until it ripped apart.
    Once you came callin,
    But I wasnt around.
    You searched and searched;
    I was no where to be found.
    For a moment you grieved.
    A childs toy missing.
    But, open that box
    And another toy you'll be kissing.

    Okay, I have one I wrote a few months ago... It was after a family member passed away.

    This world is a place of sorrow,
    A place of pain, death and tears
    But we must always hope for a better tomorrow
    To get through the years

    Live life to its fullest
    Don't let despair drag you down
    In everything thing you do try your hardest
    To help you get around

    Never give up
    Move on with your life
    Indeed, your sorrow may not stop abrupt
    But life is to short to let sorrow cause you strife

    Very nice Gallop On. I find that I can only really write when I have have something really bothering my emotionally. I have to be in the "mood" so to speak. Which is why if you read my poems you'd think I was some depressed lunatic. Lol. I really only write when I'm sad. It helps me sort things out and get over whatever is bothering me.

    Thanks (: And that's how I am too. I can't really just write a poem on the spot, I have to be in the "mood" as you said

    Great poems so far :)

    Here's one, feedback/critique welcome;;

    Wishing Upon a Dream

    I had another
    Dream about
    We were together
    Again, and so,
    So happy.
    I miss that.
    I truly felt
    Like I had
    Finally found
    Remember all of
    The shared laughter
    And corny jokes?
    Without those,
    And without you,
    I feel so
    But now, I'm
    Wide awake. Reality
    Forces me to
    Question, do you
    Miss me, too?
    Honestly, I don't
    Think you

    Here is one I wrote a long time ago.

    The Stallion

    He stood upon the rocky crag,
    With nostrils flaring wide
    And gazed upon the herd below
    His eyes betrayed his pride.

    And then he saw not far away
    Ten riders on a hill
    All muscles tensed, all heard looked up
    And every heart stood still.

    Upon the herd the rider swept
    To drive them to a gap
    That just beyond the hunters knew
    They'd built a hidden trap.

    Upon the hill the stallion spied
    His captured herd depart
    Each passing moment,vengeance grew
    Until it filled his heart.

    Then every eye turned to the king
    Up to that noble sire
    The anger in his eyes did flash
    Like burning coals of fire.

    With lifted head he reared and pawed
    His challenge to the night
    With flashing hooves he wheeled and turned
    And disappeared from sight.

    This dare the men could not refuse
    They knew the chase was on
    And up above the reddened sky
    Announced the coming dawn.

    Four days did pass and every hour
    The quarry they pursued
    The mighty steed did wan and tire
    He could not stop for food.

    Till gasping he could run no more
    His will he would not bend
    His spirit always would remain
    Unbroken to the end.

    Before him lay a deep ravine
    No bridge across it spanned
    Behind the riders closed on him
    He would not wear their brand.

    Without a backwards glance he leaped
    Defiance to his foe
    His handsome twisting body spun
    Down to the rocks below.

    They say that on a starry night
    A shadow will appear
    And if you listen carefully
    Faint hoof beats you might hear.


    And for those coffee addicts....

    Where is my COFFEE ?

    I roll out of bed in a heap.
    It's too early, I'm half asleep.
    The brain is fuzzy, the hair askew.
    Where is the coffee I need the brew !

    A mirror glanced, I do not care,
    To see the image reflected there.
    Gack ! Can that truly be me !
    Oh please! Where is my COFFEE !

    My stomach's turning I feel sick,
    I'm shaking for my morning fix.
    I'm so bad I have to pee !
    Oh please where is my COFFEE!

    At last I see my favourite spot.
    I'm dreaming of my coffee hot.
    The cupboard's bare it cannot be !
    My Lord there's no COFFEE !!

    I have read your poem "The Stallion" on the forum somewhere before and I have to say, that's one of my favorite poems, ever.
