The Poems of an Extremely Bad Poet

01 February 2012 - 07:42 AM

Hello there!

This is just a little poem that suddenly sprouted out of me and I felt like sharing.

Love.
The word is like a dove,
Fleeting in my life, yet ever present.
Yet I do not resent,
How it seems to pass me by
For all I can do is watch as my heart dies,
Slowly.

Yet.
For though I had met
One who I thought was more
I was but a bore.
I fear
That I shall not find one dear.
Hope.

A New Beginning.
That is what I have
Yet how can I save
Myself from this thing
Precious as a Ming
This thing called love?
Like a snake, love has moved
Coiling and clenching my heart.
Yet.

How can this have Happened?
I want it not.
I have fought
Tooth and Claw
Against myself – I broke a law
A law within me
See the consequence?

You who have stolen it.
You cruel one.
What have you done?
I think I can say
However much you may
Disagree
I know now of Love.

A little background about myself and why I wrote the poem above: Once upon a time, I was a young lad. I had a friend of mine who happened to be a girl. Being a guy, I realized (eventually) what a lovely creature she was. My courtship was short lived as one thing led to another and I ended up being alone. It rather scared me and scarred me. I always thought the worst thing would happen if I got involved in any sort of relationship. Two years later, I entered high school and met another lovely creature. This one was different though, and soon I began in earnest attempting to gain her affection or even just her attention. Today I made a move and essentially ran into a wall. Perhaps I'm just blind, (I am a GUY after all :P) but it seemed that there was little hope....Than music and Youtube came to the rescue, and I wrote the above poem. If the last part sounds rather bitter, it's not meant to be. It's meant to show rather how I am enslaved - or my heart is rather....

If you made it this far, thank you; it means a lot. :)

And if it sounds moody and depressing, sorry. I can be like that sometimes. :blush:

Lastly, if you have any tips for the above situation, please do tell! ;)
