3/14 – a poem I’ve been working on

​Hello all! Here is a poem that I’m working on and will continue to update! I’ve been working really hard on this one, so I hope you like it! More info to come later.

For a time, I hoped.

Magically to forget; those few, these emotions.


Happiness veiling isolation, fit to few, hardship ever waxing.


My spirit lays dim, but recovery? Now, my meaning satisfies

Petrarchan 21st – A poem I recently finished

Hello everyone! Here is a poem I’ve been working on for a few weeks, right before New Years on the 29th, and just finished right before midnight on Sunday.

Writing this poem was a roller coaster. I started it then planned to post it on New year’s Eve, then decided against it. Then I tried to finish it but it was a lot harder than I expected. I felt like I had to get everything right, and I ended up changing the rhyme words several times throughout. I kept changing little things until I decided to settle with myself, and say “no poem can be 100% perfect”. And after 2 weeks, there became what you see below.

I hope you enjoy as I worked really hard on it. I think this is a good one and it’s one that I’ll look back on a lot for the effort it took.

Quiet world, wake up and give way to me

My quietness has done harm and shaken 

Asleep in that which yet hasn’t taken

Laying in a place where my mind’s set free
Whence is where my life’s work has come to be

A dream from which I shall not awaken

Lucid, a notion to be mistaken

For what’s in that place is a sight to see
Weary remains the feet across my path

Bramble-laden with a rose at the end

I, resilient and tenfold bettered

Shall still persist through pinnacle or strath

And shall all else become untimely rend

The dream rose will still remain unfettered

A Fairly New Style For Me

This is a nice little poem I wrote while experimenting with different poetic meters. The idea came to me suddenly about 2 weeks ago, causing me to scramble to write it down, only finishing it on Tuesday. I hope you enjoy it, even with my tendency to write about sad stuff.

O’er to the market, come back to see me
When you are done I would like to apologise

Four nights apart and not once that I saw thee 

Ere to this day we did hate and we agonize 
Fret and a strife, but now all that is done with

Done is the hate that will split us apart 

Bad words retracted, redacted and onward

Honesty, gallantry, values and heart.
Back from the market, come to my residence

I shall announce that I’d like to part ways

Sad as you must be, cry as you will

But I know that you sure would have done me the same

Hate and Love: Creative writing poems

Hello all! I’m eager to share with you these two poems of mine that I wrote. I first published these on my old unused blog about 2 years ago, but I felt like it’d be nice to post it here too. 

I especially like them because of how they were written. They go along with each other well, really. The first one is what’s known as a lipogram, where none of the words have one specific letter. For that, I chose to omit the letter ‘L’. Then there’s a reverse lipogram, where every word has to contain a specific letter. I chose to include the letter ‘L’ in every word. So in a way, they’re both opposites while also being linked together. 

I plan to do more work like this in the future, having to use specific rhyme schemes and word patterns. I hope you enjoy these twin poems, though!

Hate

Human nature requires it

But human prosperity detests it.

How are we such hypocrites

We manage to perpetuate something

Then go around and preach of us being the ones to deter it?

It’s just negative passion

But passion yet the same

Have it, don’t be it

Don’t ignore it, just see it.

Love

Ailment? Accolade?

Alas; all simply loose, loose melodies plus woeful flower petals plucked slowly, carefully, hopefully

Possibly futile, still always relentless

Joyful, still melancholy

Temperamental, still jovial

Actually, only negligible

A Sonnet About Heartbreak

Hello, my dear readers. I think it’s about time I introduce you to some of my actual literature and creative work. This is a sonnet that I wrote last Friday (Dec. 9, 2016) due to a sudden burst of inspiration. Two weeks ago, I realized that I had been focusing a lot on my long-term writing projects, and hadn’t taken much time, if any, to flex my creative muscles via poems and artwork and such. So I asked a friend of mine what I should write a poem about, and she said “heartbreak”. So I put that in my mental queue of things that I needed to write. I only started writing it on Friday, because that was the day before my 18th birthday, and I wanted to do something memorable to commemorate those last moments. I was thinking hard about what I would do, and then it came to me that it’d be the perfect time to implement the idea. It was originally gonna be a set of 3 poems, but that fell through, since I started writing too late. Anyways, here it is; I really put a lot of thought and meaning into it, so I hope you guys like it.

 


 

That what I thought we had leaves me remiss

And my heart cleft into these jagged halves

Still left, right where it’s situated at.

A beautiful thing that we had, a tryst

That let us feel like troubles don’t exist;

I wish you’d granted me a caveat

But you had not the wherewithal for that.

You stole away as if we’d never kissed.

Perhaps you never thought it was real

Or that secrecy made it something bad

But I’d like to know if the love was true.

Yet many things I’d still rather feel

Than to bring upon you anything sad

For deep in me, there is still love for you.
