If any of you did not know, I write poetry in my spare time. It ebbs and flows like many things but right now it's in a definite flow and (for reasons unknown to me) I felt like sharing this particular work which I hammered out today.

Does anyone else write poetry or short stories or anything?

What is this curse that a key
Be sharpened to a blade
And with it sacred locks unmade?
Not being used for pure intent
But instead it cuts, my spirit rent.
How vile a thing is this
A weapon rendered from a kiss?
And with this kiss my soul laid bare
Seeing my passion lying there
You cut not once you cut me deep
until I wish my heart not keep.
To see that key glint and flash
I loathe the fact that I was rash.
Again, ever rash will I be?
Nay, I will only act in what I see.
Though the violence comes to an end
I start to doubt that I will mend
Or will my wounds fester and rot
Until I wish love forgot?
The moment gone and passed
My soul did begin to mourn at last
And weep did I
And weep I did
Tears upon tears upon tears
upon bitter molten tears
that will haunt me for many uncouth years.

Whenever my life is going well, I don't write anything. I haven't written a poem or short story in about four or five years.

I like your poem. It's easily relatable. It sounds like you've gone through some heartbreak recently or are remembering heartbreak. Is that right? Feeling emotions requires some kind of outlet. Writing is a good one. I'm betting that's why it's a "definite flow."

If I had written a piece recently that I cared for, I would share it.

Very nice. My one and only poem:

Demure as a cellar door
Immortalize forever more
Epiphany stirs infatuations
A fantasy, forth and flowing
Allured, you were, with elations
A cure, a source, always showing
Insatiable, untameable; imploring all the shore
A ruse, made safe and sound -- Encore, I say! Encore!

I write poems sometimes but seeing as I always do this in the middle of the night, I don't really like any of it enough to share. I'm not particularly coherent at 5am :p If I do come up with something good, I'll post it here.

Raw poems are better than contrived ones. You may not think they are pretty but they may really be and you don't know it. I used to write poetry as a kid but it was quite primitive. I'd post if I can remember them.

I agree, emotion makes poetry that is written much more so powerful. Poetry thats natural too, as you put it, its better than contrived poetry. By the way, F-16, would love the opportunity to read some of that poetry. Even children can write poetic gems, that have broad appeal.

For all the creative writing I attempt to do, poetry is not my speciality. Here is a poem of mine from 2 years ago when I was a worse writer. The style and rules are based on the Shakespearian sonnet form, and as per the English assignment this might be a dash 'contrived' . Here it is:

Can I do justice given a lack of faith?
All alone I beweep my flawed state,
Decry that which one could love and crave,
And look upon myself and curse my fate,
Wishing to be alike one rich in hope, he that is stronger and nobler than I,
desiring this man"s faith and his leader the Pope,
I have yearned for long to open my eyes,
Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising,
Happily do I laugh as such wishful dreams,
Faith I want is not in any way arising,
I still can not see any light like moonbeams,
However this state"s run is over forever,
My time is gone and my passing eternal

Not too bad for my former self, yet not too brilliant either... I had no deep experience with the subject matter of my writing.

I wish it were about brainz, i'd definitely post it then. :p But no, it's usually fairly sentimental or mushy stuff. I'm not too good with that, especially putting it in words. So it's usually a mess. It's still something I enjoy doing, though, and that's why I write occasionally anyway :)

This is a great poem. Reminded me of "Ozymadias, king of kings." If this is one of the worse ones, can't wait to see what the better ones are.
