I like a lot of what you guys have shared and I know that it can be taken very seriously so here is a little "poem" to lighten the mood


To the Storks that bring pretty babies,
And the Crows that bring ugly babies,
But most of all to the Swallows that bring no babies


hope you guys like

"Swallows" bring no babies? That's saying something. Maybe people need to start talking to their ladies.

Glad to see the poets coming out again on here. Thanks for the words guys. Lets see if I can dig one of mine out..

hmmm. my poetry folder seems to be on another computer.

The Life And Death of a Pyromaniac

The flame dances under the darkness,

like a balerina from hell,

he watches in wonder at the short life,

that can magnify a million times fold,

with but a single touch it begins,

reproducing, feeding and he watches this also,

the flame in pure excstasy as it races,

he is now engulfed in the seemingly endless life,

he burns and melts his body incinerating,

his fate at the will of the fire gods,

or possibly satan himself,

He dies slowly, painfully, not uttering a thing,

lifted into a fiery fate of heaven and hell,

Such as the life and death of a pyromaniac.

 

Not all of my poetry is this dark. This one came from my teen angst years where things got very dark for me. But they do get lighter.

SALUBRIOUS

Never give an Irishman just cause for revenge."

You robbed me, you murdered me, you raped me. You did all but eat me. Forgiveness? The thought crosses my mind on reflex, and with the same blinding speed is tossed aside. You left me with nothing to live for, and suddenly your punishment becomes worth dying for. Who's to say where justice stands, or how blind she be? I know only that there's a great pit within my soul and it must be fiiled, no matter how bitter the filling be. Your blood would do some, but your tears far more. I yearn to hear despair in your voice, to see you fall to your knees for lack of strength. I shall watch as your soul dies, like mine, and watch as you stumble about, dead man walking, like me. I will be closer to you than a lover, and on the day when you know me as I am known, when I know you as my brother in all things, on that day only, will I finally give you release.

MURAMASA

I looked into her eyes, and saw the glint of bloodlust. Her horrible visage was capable of striking the deepest chords in my heart. I knew, beyound doubt, that entirely against my will, I fell in love with her. "Kill to prove your love!" She commanded me. I could only obey; and after, wearing blood like rouge, she came to my bed, a most desirable whore. It was my friendships I slaughtered as offerings to the demoness. then she demanded more blood. Pieces of my flesh were delicacies at her table; until I scarcely knew myself. Then, when near my death from the blood and tears I shed for her; she was sated, and wanted no more. The cruelest cut: she left me broken and alone.

TIGERS DON'T FLY

I'll never fly; above the dreams of ravens, dancing with the clouds below me; across a starlit sky. Tigers don't fly. I have no wings to carry me. 'Cuz flying means freedom. I am bound by responsibility; so much must be done by me. I have my duty. So I'll never fly. 'Cuz there's so much, so much I've gotta do; maybe for you.

So I leave flying to the angels, and birds and dreaming ravens. They can dance on the starry cloud. I can watch, if they let me. My paws will only get me, so far. I'll never fly; among the torches of the stars where only Mother Moon sees my scars. Tigers don't fly. Oh, I'll never fly.

Time to Revive this baby again. I started this thread but haven't been keeping up with it. I don't know when, but I'll have another poem on here. DP has poets and they will be heard!

I actually just wrote this one. It's going to be on the program of my father's funeral as a poem from my family. I'm also working on one that will be directly from me which I'll be reading as part of the ceremony. I just wanted to share this with everyone.

Moment of Solace

Remembering times of happiness,
Moments of jokes and laughter,
Things about you that will be missed,
Your words, your wisdom, you forever after.

Images engraved in our souls, buried in our hearts,
An essence deep within we've known, sewn apart,
Vividly we see you, a vision behind our eyes,
The drifting of your presence, missing your life.

Feeling you leave, finding your place of peace,
Living now among the stars, no longer in grief,
Getting away from a world filled of sorrows,
Making it home where no time is borrowed.

Resolving to solace ourselves as you are missed,
Holding dear to the memories enveloped in bliss,
Even through troubles, problems, and arguments,
Only to see your smile again is what we have wished.

Andre Ratchford
