cbLoans(DD) will help me judge a little. Thanks

Blarg May 4 2006 8:56 PM EDT

Lukey's making me post these on here too so...

"Hourglass"

It seems to me
That every day is just
A day closer
To seeing you

School to me
Seems like just an interlude
Between waking up
And talking to you

It's all so pointless
Just meaningless ramblings
Just a passage of
Time, till you

I don't even care now
All I think is you
I can't even care now
All I know is you

So until I see you again
Hold you close again
Be patient as the hourglass flows
Too fast with you, and too slow without



"No title is good enough"

How is it possible
That you could leave me
Breathless
Yet at the same time make me feel
Invincible

My heart nearly bursts
For it has never felt such
Joy
Before, and I hope it will never
Dull

Whenever I'm with you
Every inch of my body
Trembles
And whenever I'm not, my body
Yearns

My mind is filled
So full, full of
Passion
That the words just pour from my
Soul

I promise I'll never hurt you
I swear I'll never stop
Loving
You, my soul's mate, you, my
Love



And of course...

"My Love"

Blinded by your beauty
Excited by your voice
Encouraged by your mind
Longing for your touch
Entrapped by your eyes
Hurt by your sorrow
Stunned by your grace
Warmed by your kindness
Charmed by your smile
Enraptured by your laugh
Mesmerized by you,
My Love.

[SNK3R Edit: Fixed Â's in first poem.]

Good poems. Here's a little something.

I hear your voice and see your face in every passing second
I yearn to hear you say my name and cant wait to see you again
I want to give you everything because you are my world
I want to hold you close forever and never let you go
I love you with my everything my heart and my soul

save your breath. if Sefton sees this it's game over.

QBSefton [Black Cheetah Bazaar] May 4 2006 11:13 PM EDT

OK maybe this is not your average love poem, that is OK I am feeling sort of "Dylanesque" this eve, so you get

So Tall

She asked me once for the hundreth time
Give me one of your loving rhyme
I gave her something she could not see
A small and minor part of me
It was worth its weight is solid lead
And no I speak not of my head
She took it in hand and tossed it up
I toasted her with my champagne cup

It floated high onto the floor
I kissed her once then no more
We shared a second for the next hour
I plucker her red-rimmed gemlike flower
Then she said you have what wasnt mine
And I replied whats mine is thine
She said thats fair I guess
So I talked her out of her Sunday best

So you wonder what she got?
What was it shaped like is it hot?
If it glowed or perhaps it smelled?
Maybe it made noises when I yelled
You will never know if you do not try
A tasty slice of humble pie

Give something of yourself
no matter how small
To that person you know
Makes you feel so tall

Limerick Love

"What is love?" you ask.
I'll take time for the task.
You might not like my mood,
Love isn't always so good.
But I promise I won't wear a mask.

Love can be chance.
It can land with a glance.
Make the decisions you should,
What feels right, what feels good,
But know that there's more to the dance.

Let's start with the start...
It feels so from the heart.
There's nothing more true,
Than love felt through and through.
You can't even spell "apart".

So two become one.
Don't question how it's done.
It's how we're meant to be. (Right?)
Hold on and don't leg go? (Hold tight.)
Don't forget to have fun!

Here's begins the stray.
Some strange push away.
Or is the push the good part?
Maybe I'm not as smart...
...As I thought I was that day.

Focus.

Love is great, don't get me wrong.
Every movie, every drive, every song.
But which part is he?
Have I lost who is me?
Has my love been not me all along?

Here begins the doubt...
Surely, I'm not what this is about?
But I'm part of the pair.
Shouldn't I still be in there?
Hush fool! Just be devout!

That lie lasts a while,
Then resigns to denial.
This isn't love I have known.
I just don't like being alone.
Who'd have know I could be so vile?

But I'm not going to settle.
God help you if you meddle.
If I compromise myself,
Then love's better on the shelf.
"Love me, love me not?" Screw the petals.

Don't cringe.

This isn't something new.
You know what to do.
Stick with the test.
Ol' Will said it best...
"To thine own self be true!"

Love will find a way? Good. Be sure it earns it's passage.

Love Findeth a Way - by Sir Freedalot

Night is falling
and so are my trousers.

Limbert Amberstam May 5 2006 4:19 AM EDT

Walking in Heaven


Silver snow drops and butterfly sugar canes,
Falling, Spiraling, Burning with love

Candied,

Splendid.

Aromatic as a midwinter blanket of crushed petals
Fallen from the milky white flowers in the sky.
Footprints of antlers floating in the wind,
Shifting with the frozen sands of water's time
Culminating with the sheets of solid life's blood
Flowing like a river of glass through the shadows of my mind
Drinking of the essence of my everlasting soul
And bleeding of the retribution of yesterday's forgotten woes.

Take me to that place,

Take me to your love.

And show me the meaning of...

Country Girl

Love is your country lanes
Love is your hills and valleys
Love is lying in your grass
Love is time lost beneath your trees

I'm a city boy, concrete and glass gave birth to me
But I like to get away from the streets
and relax in your countryside

Love is a white horse high upon a hillside
And days passing lost in your blue eyes
I think I'd like to build my home
Down here beneath your blue skies

I'm a city boy, concrete and glass gave birth to me
But I must confess a love of wide open spaces
And relaxing in your countryside

"I Miss You"

To see you when I wake up, is a gift I didn't think could be real
To know that you feel the same, as I do, is a Three-fold utopian dream
You do something to me
That I can't explain
So would I be out of line, If I said
I miss you.

I see your picture, I smell your skin on, the empty pillow next to mine
You have only been gone ten days, but already I am wasting away
I know I'll see you again
Whether far or soon
But I need you to know, that I care
And I miss you

Angel of Death [Hell Blenders] May 5 2006 5:36 AM EDT

im not good at this but who cares

everyone is afraid of dead
im death so fear me

the end :D

QBJohnnywas May 5 2006 6:05 AM EDT

'Country Girl' was written on the spot but here's a couple of older lyrics of mine. Nothing major but I thought I'd chuck them in. One of them is an 'anti-love' song. Should be fairly obvious which one....

The Gulf Between Us

I've got a bullet in the head for you
I've got a feeling this will go right through you
I'll make it quick I'll make it fast
Trust me now we'll have a blast
I've got a bullet in the head for you

I've got a spy in the sky for you
I've got a feeling it will see right through you
I'll be able to watch your every step
Be able to see where you've crept
I've got a spy in the sky for you

I've got a biological weapon for you
I've got a feeling it will really suit you
I'll make you sick make your hair fall out
You won't have the time to scream or shout
I've got a biological weapon for you


=================================
Here's The Catch

You keep falling out of my life
Turn my world upside down
I keep running to try to keep track
Of the things we mean to each other

You keep falling out of my life
Drifting in and out of town
You keep slipping from view
I keep losing sight of you

I try to catch you try to catch you try to catch you
But i can't hold you

You keep moving past the horizon
It's like chasing a pot of gold
But the rainbow is losing it's colour
The day is dark the sun is cold

I try to catch you try to catch you try to catch you
But i can't hold you


====================================

Looking good, haha, Freed, That's awesome!

AdminG Beee May 5 2006 7:26 AM EDT

Perhaps not quite a "love poem" but it fits the bill I think ;)
Oh yeah and btw, plagiarism rules!

PS. Don't tell the Mrs ;)

--
Love: From the perspective of the male.

When I was 14, I hoped that one day I would have a girlfriend.

When I was 16, I got a girlfriend,
but there was no passion so I decided I needed a passionate girl with a zest for life.
In college I dated a passionate girl, but she was too emotional.
Everything was an emergency; she was a drama queen, cried all the time and threatened suicide.
So I decided I needed a girl with stability.

When I was 25, I found a very stable girl but she was boring.
She was totally predictable and never got excited about anything.
Life became so dull that I decided that I needed a girl with some excitement.

When I was 28, I found an exciting girl, but I couldn't keep up with her.
She rushed from one thing to another, never settling on anything.
She did mad, impetuous things and made me miserable as often as happy.
She was great fun initially and very energetic, but directionless.
So I decided to find a girl with some real ambition.

When I turned 29, I found a smart, ambitious girl with her feet planted firmly on the ground and married her.
She was so ambitious that she divorced me and took everything I owned.

I am older and wiser now, and am just looking for a girl with large breasts.

QBJohnnywas May 5 2006 7:51 AM EDT

Love is never being right even when you know you are.
Love is never ever having room for your clothes again.
Love is never acknowledging the existence of an attractive woman again.
Ever.

Love knows no fat. Just white lies.

Love is dinner with her friends. Love is the pub with yours.
Love is never mentioning that ex with the long legs.
Love is shopping. For shoes.
Where the first pair you looked at seven hours ago
Are the ones that you take home.

Love is spending Christmas with her parents and five minutes on the drive home with yours.
Love knows no action movies.
Love knows only soap operas and reality television. Love doesn't like hangovers. Or big fried breakfasts.

Love is always hungry because love cannot live on lettuce alone.


But love is cuddles on the sofa and laughing until dawn.
And succumbing to the curry and the beer on the way home.
And standing at the bus stop not caring about the rain.
Love is always smiling when you wake up.
Cups of coffee in the May sunshine in the garden.

And sometimes love is forever.

Not always. But sometimes.....

QBJohnnywas May 5 2006 8:10 AM EDT

Nobody's going to tick all the boxes.
So don't be disappointed when it all goes belly up.
But when you're lucky you're lucky
Because there are checklists that you never knew existed
If you can laugh you've got it good
Because laughter is a better foundation than you'll ever find

I'm younger now than I've ever been.

"Clean"

Today, everything was fine fine fine
Until roundabout quarter to 9, suddenly I found myself in a bind, a bind
Was it something I said?
Something I read
And manifest that's getting you down?
Don't you dare come to bed with that ambiguous look in your eye
I'd sooner sleep by an open fire and wake up fried!
Say what youu will
Say what youu mean
No, you could never offend
Your dirty words come out clean, clean
Tomorrow, what price will I pay
Could I make it all up to you by serving coffee for two in bed, would you then give me the time of day?
I need a map of your head, translated into english so I can learn to not make you frown
Feel better if you vent, put your frustrations into four letter words and let them out on mine
The most weathered ears in town!

Angel of Death [Hell Blenders] May 5 2006 12:55 PM EDT

to lose your soul or to lose your soul
you will always lose your soul to me
to be sad because you go were you you suppost to go
good or bad you'll always get a visit from me

man im bad at this

MY LOVE FOR YOU (FOOD).

If I could ask for just one thing,
if I could have, just one wish,
it'd be a big plate of chips and fish!

O' love, sweet tender love,
as tender as whiting grilled,
this food, I eat you until I am filled!

O' love, sweet love so gentle,
gentle as the waves breakin' upon the shore,
this food, I just want you so much more!

O' love, I just love my food so,
how much I will only know,
when I've eaten so much I can eat no mo'.

O' love, my love of food,
never knew this much love I could,
have for my beloved food!

If I could ask for just one more thing,
if I could have, just one more wish,
it'd be a for more chips and fish on my dish!

Love's Last Confession

Lilacs at my head and daisies at my feet
E're Spring prize the blooming, your dearest conceit

What lack you, wretch, who never dares?
Armored all in disdaining airs

Faithless brute, to waste such trust
Always You, as True You must

Stubborn and stoic, forsaking each chance
Being the You to refuse every dance

Cowardly kisses and the bravest of sword
Palt'ring each gift for wit's bantering word

All facade and good will and sins of omission
All hard and unbending and lacking contrition

Bold, blatant, so easy, complete disregard
A debasing, a wounding, a permanent scar

(Profligate defiling
With casual styling!)

What lesson unlearned,
With every love spurned?

The hardening heart
Denying love's art

Cautionate fashion
Stymying passion

Hateful potential,
So self referential

Eschewing demands,
Blowing time's sands

Wantonly reckless,
Oblivious, feckless

Determined unknowing,
A dying heart's slowing

This oft-lying artifice
Killing that part of us

A blazing defeat
Admitted, complete.


Come now, Love! I'm restless
Time draws me to breathless

Love's labor lost, my starving obsession
Now quickens my end, bears hard my confession

Bend once! At last, Love, turn your ear in
As I exhale, expire and grant you, "You win."

QBBarzooMonkey May 5 2006 6:02 PM EDT

I wrote this way back in 1993:

My love, she touches Angels
As they light upon white wings
I hear her name upon the wind,
And my heart, oh how it sings

My love, she touches Angels
Yet I hear them softly crying
For they know I am without my love,
And my heart and soul are dying

My love, she touches Angels
As they light upon the sky
But, alas, they have abandoned me
For without her, love has died

My love’s Angels called to me
Through my sorrow and despair
To say that my love was never lost
And that I could never leave their care

My love, she touches Angels
And in answer to her call,
They bring messages of hope, and peace
And the gift of Love, for all

I even illustrated it in 1994...

Maybe I'm dense (and it is your contest to run how you please), but I can't find a poem named "Lost Again", nor one by PitSpawn?

Am I missing something?

{CB1}Lukeyman May 6 2006 3:19 PM EDT

It was personal to him, and he emailed it to me

QBsutekh137 May 6 2006 3:54 PM EDT

Ah, I see... Thanks for the contest!

Blarg May 6 2006 5:09 PM EDT
