Thread for Poetry

Post by Compactual_Poet »

Once before I made a deal with this
Flock
The leaders, greeders, peacekeepers and lovers
Of this group
But now I ask instead of poetry for answering
Poetry for the sake
Pure
And singular
Of Poetry

What poems and verse and written words
Of beauty
Have you written, made, or loved? Favorites of your life?
Poets you have seen or heard?
Songs that speak to body and soul?
All that makes you feel: whole

What is there from you, everyone? My hero is my mentor, writer of many a song, but naming him would do him
Wrong.
All we are is parts of a whole, body and soul

...this might surprise people, but I actually like this thread idea! :lol:

A human taught me those weird '5-7-5' haiku things a while ago, and they can be fun when you have all your toys and people taken away. In honor of him, and how/where I learned this, here's a haiku from me. I call it "Last Week's Bail"

I agree. I enjoy the sound of this. Recent topics here have made me quite...agitated.

The wife of a former owner taught me how to read and write their words. And all of it was poetry, ballads, and such. She had me write my own piece as an assignment. I thought I was being clever...

If you do not see the poetry in this, then you have no soul.
An idea is valid no matter the source.

That's better than mine

Or just more clever

You are quite the flatterer
Oh your words carry honey
Under that smile lies promises of pleasure

Always ready with a glib remark
Ready to pounce; laughing
Ever so cunning, you thief in the dark

How you make me jump with a start
Oh how you leave me in awe, darling Senn
Turian of my heart

I must admit that was a bit much. But quite fun :D

Close! I think you need one more bit in the middle line.

It was fantastic anyway, though. :lol:

Might I say that is a beautiful piece of poetry, provides for great insight into the mind of a slave during their periods of yearning for freedom.

But I digress, might I ask what repercussions this tiny bit of poetry had in terms of what 'trouble' you received? I wouldn't believe it was anything severe.

There was no more poetry. From then on, my antics were monitored and we moved on to other lessons.

A krogan spouting poetry would be a silly thing to show off to their dinner guests :lol:

Me heart is of fire,
It burn like flame thrower
But for all me love I send
Me only get you ire
Me hopes can get no lower
When will me heart ache end

Me search all me life
For one hot momma to be mine
To hold Spiker close to her breast
And not threaten him with knife
But think me lookin fine
For Spiker that be just the best

Me be good man you see
Me be loyal, kind of true
Me fly all way cross universe
To see you pretty face with glee
Me even share me food with you
Me no know what to say this verse

So many lovely ladies out in space
Me just want to kiss you all in you face
Humans, Krogans, Salarians and Turians too
Even Quarians, Elcore and me beautiful Asari blues
Me know me love is out there
Me have not many more years to spare

If you like me and me like you
Then me waste no time with what to do
Me can put an end to me search
And me take you to the nearest church
There me be yours and you mine
And we will celebrate with lots of sexy time

Then me always take care of you
Me cook and clean and kill for you too
Me no even care if you gain some heft
Cause me only have like 6 years left
But they be the best years of me life
If me can have you as me wife

Love for Vorcha may be rare
Me know you out there somewhere
One day hot momma me will be you beau
But just one thing me need to know
Before me can continue to roam
What the heck is poem?
