    Inconsistency

    Hey guys For this poem I'm really considering the construction method here. The goal was to write things out of order, yet they still work in order, which is a very... ineffective way of doing things. I feel that its probably more of a gimmick that should be dropped so I can write the poem. The...

    Image

    Image Sit still, Sit still… It’s not going to be much longer now. What? Right now? I’m curving my thumb, encrusted with chipping yellow paint, around the curve of your delicate face. Be bored then. As I said, I’m almost finished. Now see, When you do things like that it just makes it...

    Funesto

    Funesto The silver lining turns to ash. In my childhood I remember the bells around the neck of a cat and the window that separated me from it. And I wanted nothing more. Then when my soul had matured there was a girl. I remember the blue ribbon in her red hair the song in her voice and the...

    Hello... Again

    Hey there, Writer's Forum goers. I previously made an account here under the name of Jeff Degginger, but for various reasons I had to make a different account. Anyways, glad to be back. I'll probably lurk around the Fiction boards most of the time.

    Comeback

    Hey guys, I figured I would share my newest poem with you all. I wrote this when considering a fictional alternative to why the girl I was interested in wouldn't respond to my texts or anything.

    Liquid Bliss (potentially offensive language)

    Okay first off I want to say that this poem is something I never thought I would be posting ANYWHERE. I came back across it today and I'm just looking for some reactions. Trust me, this poem isn't beautiful, it wasn't written to be great or to adhere to the rules. So I'm sure that its mostly...

    The Sound Of Death

    I find myself carrying water, Purified, In this hallway, Down the sloped ramp, Towards the door. I hear the infernal hissing, All around, And the car outside, The headlights switch off. All the lights go out, I continue walking, Towards the door. It never gets closer, No matter how much I...

    Apology

    I must apologize in advance, This poem is not my best, It could be my worst, But, I’m writing it anyway. It’s got clichés, It’s got melodrama, It’s got allegory, But, Its original anyway. It’s a rough draft, Written on a bar napkin, With a stripper’s red pen, But, It’s about love anyway...
