So, just about everyone I know has their own thread in AMW, and I decided it was high time I started one of my own. I'm no artist, but I fancy myself to be a bit of a poet. Here's a few by myself:

The Five Seasons

In the cool of these days
I lie in the grass and contemplate
In a fresh and gentle haze
These beautiful breezes of late
I long for times to go on forever
But alas, they always stay never

Through the days of heat
I long for the autumn
Through this swelting waves to beat
A cold, wet column
Like a fresh breath of life
To end this heated strife

In these months so gold
When fresh joy enchants
The colours grow bold
With gusts of cool windy rants
I fear my life is gone
When these perfect days move on

Like a renewal of heart
These ages are bathed in white
When gone are the times of hurt
Here the young are fresh with delight
Sweet peace, joy, and love
Soon flies away like a dove

Ah, this fifth season
It is how I am alive
It ends without reason
It all too soon doesn't arrive
When this season is gone
To the afterlife, I move on

You Live To Die

Men live, men die
A pat on the back
Beats a poke in the eye
This pendulum is out of wack

As life marches on, love might find you
If it does, it might stay
Or it might sail on with a ship's crew
If it's still there, hooray

Soon, tragedy strikes you down
Life starts to end, fall to pieces around your ears
Those bright lights of love may turn brown
If you're lucky, come true will all your fears

Soon pain will come 'round
Like a swimmer drown'd
You have no will to be alive
You impatiently wait for death to arrive

When you see him come over the hill
You run to greet him, as a friend
Suddenly, to life you have the will
But it's too late; come, has the end

The Long Road
As I walk along this road
I see many dead on the road
I see bodies on the road
I see limbs on the road
I see heds on the road
But never on this road
Have I seen love on this road
Never once happiness on this road
Everything is dead on the Long Road
Walk life traversing the Long Road

I'll add more as the days go on
Even though time leaves
I'll not be long gone
For he that in me truly believes

Okay! So I decided to add ONE more....

One Day

One, time
One moment

One, Promise broken
One started journey

This is one of those sad days
I look at the,
Sky and wonder

One, time
One moment

What could have,
Been, what should have
Been, What is

One, time
One moment

Inspired by a song by Enya. (dunno the name, sorry)

Okay, so, depression. Good subject for poetic... prose.

Love's Coronach
It's been so long
I've been down here
The past is my prologue
I don't want to stay
Don't stray close, or near
Unless you've come to take me away

It's been so long
Into the blue
That i've been gone
I used to gaze into the view
Now, all that's left
A broken heart
A mind of twisted heft
I'm not going to be inert
I've got to stand up

I look into the skies
And I see no joy
Maybe love is so many lies
it's all a clever ploy
Now I take my revenge
I stride boldly out
I step on my enemies' bodies
Nobody can stop my powerout
I walk through the nobodies

First I feel the quiet creeping
The fear takes hold
Sadness in my heart sleeping
Comes out and is of old

I pause, stop, halt.....

.....I notice....

...Love is gone

I smile, death
I wink, pain
IN your lungs no breath
IN your struggling no gain

My soul, my life, my joy
I watch them suffer
Yes, my pleasures annoy
For my wrath tehre's no buffer

To save myself, you I've destroyed
Your words are mixed up, unintelligable
My hatred not even God can avoid
My head spins, I watch you become circumsual
It's a headache, it's hell
Pain, anger deep in my soul, well
Back: now Forth goes the Legion

Now I'm back for more
My presence the most patient abhore
But the devils do me adore
Angel's heads my wall's decor
I move my feet, sinister gyrations
I dance the waltz of Death
I tempt Wrath's endless frustrations
I'm going to live soon
Mourn for the arrival of my Scourge
I dance to Satan's tune
And sing love's dirge

My best so far.

I like Loves Coronach, its dark in a way that riveted me. I also like how you step out of the box of traditional meter and rhyme in your poem, One Day, and gave it a broken rhythm. It really drives the whole think home. Keep it up, these are good. Only problems I see are occasional misspellings, like

For my wrath tehre's no buffer

I see heds on the road

Of course, the irony in me pointing that out is I misspelled thing, writing it as think instead. Oh well.

Thank you for the critique. I know there were many mistakes in there.....
I'm glad that Love's Coronach hooked you. It's my best yet.

Well, I finally add another poem.

Dunes of Darkness

Marching across dunes of gold
These Dark Crusaders undermine peace
As a shadow spreads bold
They darken the dawn horizons

The Dark Crusaders spill blood across the field
Once peaceful sand, disturbed by the wind
Now live only those who weapons' wield
Those peaceful here meet their end

Across the plains, these Shadow Knights ride
Gold to dust, stone to sand, life to death, light to dark
Through burning towns these Swarthy Chevaliers stride
Wreaking doom and hell through the night so stark
Over rotting corpses do these phantoms glide

The desert mourns for souls lost, Hell's gate hangs open
The dunes flow into its teeth, dead bodies on dirt choken
HellRaiders, demons of the deepist pit of hades cackle
The greatest heroes fall, gurgling horribly awoken
Here Hercules rests in many a shackle

Dickens' ghostly appearance shatters the Angels' souls
No hope is left alive, yet in this defence are there holes
The desert summons up legions lost to fight
Undead Vagabonds, with bloodwrath their eyes alight
Shrieks of the afflicted in a gaggle
Wraiths of life and light rampage through Hell
Life loses meaning as those in the front lead the straggle
Death reigns supreme as death tolls the bell

Now, who the dunes, who the sand, spares the life of a Demon's thousand?

My second demonic-based poem.

Okay, so, I've had enough with the depression for now.....

Blanket Land

I walking along the fluffy path
Never my shouldser lightly sag
I haven't yet seen such as a hint of wrath
Everything is soft as a thermal sleeping bag

There's no need for even one warrior
It's beyond rare to see a worrier
Everything is fine, nobody is a courier
The only thing to think about is a blanket furrier

Obviously I'm slipping. xD

And to address the loss in the world.....

[b]Ain't Got Nothin'[b]

If and when you die
With sorrow so would I
But I ain't got nothin' to lose
If you ran away, from me
I'd spend my life looking for clues
Really, I ain't got nothin' to lose

So when my heart is broke
I wont really care anymore
'Cause I ain't got nothin', to lose
I'll ne'er again on tears choke
I never had feelings for you

All I did was a front
To hide from boredom's brunt
I'm not ashamed to say at all
I ain't got nothin', to lose

Anyone who thinks I am, something that I'm not
Probably sees a smiling face, and laughter in my eyes
But when all's said and done, all my battles have been won
I really don't smile alot
All I really am, is a storm cloud in a clear, blue, sky

Now you may be surprised, that someone like me
Would not have realised, you can live happily
Oh, I ain't got nothin', to lose
It doesn't matter what I choose
It's sometimes win and always lose

When kingdom come, thy will be done, I'm drowning in an ocean
There's no help for me, you're wasting your time
I'm content in my depression
'Cause really I ain't got nothin', to lose

'Cause I really ain't got nothin', to lose

That's to the tune of "Alone Again, Naturally".

Hope you enjoy.
