    It is more of an aphorism-styled philosophical prose.

    I don't know if I would call it poetry, poetry.

    My real poetry is, well, revealing, and I have problems, at times, sharing my "inner" self to people, lol, it is a stupid fear, perhaps I will post a real poem later.

    That is entirely up to you. To me, what you posted spoke of truth, whether or not you consider it true poetry. I have many that I don't consider true poetry either. Example...



    Thought

    These poet’s thoughts flutter through my mind.
    Gather.
    Separate.
    Touch upon the tongue.
    Teeter.
    And then fall.
    Tumble over and over upon themselves.
    Until they are nothing but the thought of the aftermath.
    Seeded words make it to my hand.
    Seen by my eyes only.
    Until I share you.
    Infamous words.
    Let you be.
    Grow wings.
    Fly from blooming blossom to blooming blossom.
    Pollinate their sweetly-fragranced minds.
    Allow new thoughts to grow.
    Spread.
    Seed some more.
    Shades of blue.
    Hues of gold.
    Flitter.
    Fly.
    Grace me with your beauty.
    Magic.
    Telltale flights.
    Whispers.
    Shhh.
    Don’t tell me where you came from.
    Just entertain me.
    Then fly away while I laugh.
    I have no idea who I am. All I can say is let's rock hard.

    I think of an elusive and whimsical muse flirting with me, taunting me, enticing me, when I read that!!!



    Lovely!!!

    ^^^^^^(i think) (captain chicks poem) Cool . I think you summed up a lot about us right there.

    I write way less logical more emotional stuff too. It's all a weird mix.

    I don't know if I would call it poetry, poetry.

    Yes, I tended to agree with your self-assessment there. I'm glad you made it, because I was thinking precisely that myself as I was reading. It was quite prose-y to my tastes, and you seemed uncertain about what you wanted to say at times. I didn't see much that was new to me either, and so I felt a bit disengaged while reading, though I didn't disagree with what you were saying in it.

    My real poetry is, well, revealing, and I have problems, at times, sharing my "inner" self to people, lol, it is a stupid fear, perhaps I will post a real poem later.
    I'd like to see something that actually came from your heart rather than your mind. I'm guessing that you would be more expressive and energised with a poem that you are more emotionally attatched to, particularly after what you've just said. I'm quite happy to post something more personal of mine so long as I see some other people doing so, but I don't want to take over the thread by being the only one posting. I have plenty of expereince of reading my own stuff in public, so there's nothing for me to gain by pushing myself out there more.

    C'mon, post and be dammed! I'm certainly not going to pull apart a poem that obviously means something to someone, and I'd hope no-one else would be so bad-mannered either!

    BTW, thanks for posting that one, Gin ^^^ I won't add to my earlier comments except to say that it was a nice little poem which at least one other person has enjoyed reading too

    Nah, it is an okay fear. Most stuff I write is pretty personal too. I took years to share any of it. Think I was more honest with myself when I knew I wouldn't share any of it.

    *For Bluemonday*

    Trades

    We trade in cash all through the year
    And paperchase with words and deeds
    For drink, and drugs, and plastic cheer
    Like lulling savages with beads.

    We trade in dollars, guns and oil
    And dare not stop to wonder why;
    With faith, and life, and counterfoil
    And all on land, in sea and sky.

    We trade in stocks, and shares, and strain
    To keep those profit margins sound
    And play the loss against the gain,
    Because this makes the world go round.

    We trade our labour - grab your share!
    Because those shits by whom we're paid
    Know how to squeeze their pleasures there
    And pay the price by which they're laid.

    And we have bought, and we have sold
    To earn our place beneath the sun,
    And turned our trades of trash for gold
    Till like for like can keep but one.

    Trade love for love - no other price
    Or love it buys will ever do.
    Those happiest take this advice
    And through their lifetimes prove it true.

    I am in the mood to write a poem for you...here goes.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I sit here in silence, it's never enough, I swallow the pieces whole.

    I came up with an idea once, felt like such a surprise, it fell through, though, when forced to face the facts.

    I am tired of trying, trying to find something to quell what will be and is, the inevitable collapse.

    And these people, they keep coming back

    These moments, as they pass, how they seem, in retrospect, as units of life lived.

    To live within a perpetually permanent past. A life defined by an accumulation of acts.

    I am tired of an aloneness I chose but, still, I cannot ignore this hunger for more.

    I am a speechless poet, a metal muse, an intense implosive fuse.

    Lost in the infinite, my anchored -self , completely and utterly confused.
