I like the last one a lot, it seems like it could be a very deep piece if you focused more on the point you are trying to get across than the rhyme scheme, but I do like the way that it flows. I do more blank and free verse than  rhyme schemes because I don't like limiting the poem to just what fits the rhyme scheme, but you did well with this.

I made this for FLP two months ago, but it was too late to use it there.

A shade darker than my soul;
Black as night,
Void of light,
No embers in the coal.

A truth to not ignore;
The sea of flame
Left me insane,
Though purer than before.

Eternally at peace;
And from the fire
Of your desire,
I shall be released.

Another FLP

What do you say, comrade?
Shall we go to war?
Will we fight for honor,
Or is it the slaughter you adore?
Will we return in triumph,
Or will our blood be poured?
Will they flee in terror,
And return nevermore?
Will they stand and face us,
Or be crippled to the core?
But first ask yourself, comrade,
What are we fighting for?

Another FLP. When I was tired, I made a notepad file of a few dozen lines that sounded neat. Here's some of that thrown together.

Erase the slate of dreary tears,
Clear your memory of fears;
Drink the wine, spend the time
To find your mind is in a bind:
Sleeping soundly without a scream
Of severed secrets sealed in a seam,
So slit the curtain from the wall,
Reveal the gory scene to all.
Shine like a seashell in the sun:
With a glint of ease and a glimmer of fun
Near seas of dreams and skies of light,
But brought to ashes in the night;
Shattered and scattered, they flit away
Above the ocean of dismay.

My wound continues to spout
A ruby river from a seemingly endless source.
The crimson fluid flows casually across the soft skin,
Not hindered by the wrinkles of wear, nor the natural contours,
But instead formed and guided by their canyons.
Slowly, ever so slowly, each drop drowsily falls to the floor
With a small, scarlet splash that cleanly coats the boards below.
Their stains will remain long after the cut has clotted;
A persistent reminder of pain.

Here's some old pictures I took of a bee and some butterflies:

Holy crap.
I really like the last two. You must have a really nice camera, man.

Daaaaaaaang... I'm just kinda shocked over how good these photos are!

While I'm here, I'm gonna read over a thing or two :)

A shade darker than my soul;
Black as night,

Ahaha I am also SunPixie, if you didn't already know. I knew I had heard that first line somewhere before.
The first stanza was my favorite, for sure. The second stanza's first line I had to re-read... it didn't really flow well when I read it in my mind. The final stanza's second line might not need "And" in it. That's all I can really say. I really did like this poem though :) Keep up the good work Emp, I'll definitely be dropping by more often to read!

Nikon Coolpix L18. I think I got it in early '09.

Whaaaaa-?! *head splodes* (jk, I node)

The second stanza's first line I had to re-read... it didn't really flow well when I read it in my mind.

Yeah. I wrote the last 3 lines, then slapped the first one on.

The final stanza's second line might not need "And" in it.

Yeah. Trying to fit the syllable scheme.

Nonsense poem

The inclipsing Nashler sliciped.
Its vormatious vlanthery was vease,
And though the plusper Moretchons
Had debesheled in the prissetium,
They orashiated in place.

A ghalined fighter sought the beast
With his wabulated blade.
He granbled through the trospicor
And waleed in the risule
Until he fid the glade.

The beast ujucaled and repistled
When vearping upon his terl.
A haeboun of slashes risuled the fighter,
Brought his alschins to their last,
And wambled his yalgrifel.

But the fighter enalcered his wounds
And hished his chisted teeth.
As the wabulated blade quostinged,
The porascuous man filled with exaniter
And fleskened the vormatious beast!

With his bashment won and the beast no more,
He jalphed and josked with pride.
But he knew not of the toxins
Within the beast's claws,
And that day he slolingly died.
