I’m going to dump a lot of beta poems on you, choose which one you like. Be warned, though, two of them are found poems, and the rest were made with my “Edgar Allen Poet” magnet thing, so weird and morbid
(found poem, from page 99 of Charles Dickens’ David Copperfield)
Been months, months more
Never for want of a story
I never, with tears in my eyes, affected to be with mirth
This put me out, very often
Whatever i had within me that was romantic and dreamy
was encouraged by much storytelling,
is not likely to be much learnt.
Anyone can do anything in a life of constant misfortune.
(found poem, lyrics of a song)
I have slipped and danced,
I’ve climbed and joined sun-split clouds,
Done things you have not dreamed of.
I’ve chased and flung
Through footless halls of air…
I’ve topped heights,
and, while silent,
Put out my hand
I must kiss the sky
fly up to try,
Believe in the unknown,
walk like midnight.
Come fill my skin.
Whisper every dream
You love our evil face,
hole of confusion.
And a couple of haikus
Coffee, oh, coffee
oh how hot my hatred burns
like a scalding gulp
chemistry is cool,
but, though, the labs are better
we light stuff on fire
I’m either into depressing ones, or irreverent haikus
i could've gone outside to take a walk, but i know that i wouldn't've come backSeptember 18, 2019 at 8:48 pm #97301
Depression as of the rain, to some
Where others would take, decorant hues.
Petrichor and chrysalism, taken as of the withered weed;
Brought and chained unto the air,
Depression of aught, this of the brain.
To Him we look, and see the light,
Of Him we read and comfort, have
To set the sun within the sky…
This of the best of merchandise.
This upon a thought of mine, to pre and sent this riddled rhyme.

awesome and great for writers block. You get this little–i say little, its 200 words–and they’re all magnets that you can graft together to make a poem. I think its a good warm up for writing, like you you warm up with an instrument or singing.

there are a bunch of different types, like i got the Allan Poe set, but there’s an Austen one too.

@e_elaine_soup5 I love the song lyrics one. Sun-split clouds is a great image! The haikus were great too, especially the line “we light stuff on fire.” 😀

@evelyn Our local book/coffee shop has a magnet poetry board hanging on one of the doors inside. People put together lines of poetry from the little magnets and you can be inspired and make your own. It’s really cool.

That poetry magnet thing sounds awesome!
