Poetry Cafe (Idk what to call it)

Good day fellow VFK players/ Miss Clue users!
So lately, I have gotten more into poetry and writing poetry and stuff, and I wanted to share it with y'all!

This discussion will be a place to post any poetry you've written and would like to share, and to help uplift others about their writing skills.

A few quick rules before we begin:
1. No hate comments please. You can make suggestions to help improve writing if you think it would help, but please always be nice to others!
2. If for some odd reason your poem contains talk of terrorism or has very detailed, gory violence, I'm sure it is great, but please do not post it. :)

Enjoy!

  • I wrote this on November 12, 2018, the day we had our first little bit of snow for the winter in my warm place of residence.

    Winter

    Snowflakes are falling,
    The bitter cold is raging,
    Winter's come early.

    For those of you who do not know, this is a Haiku Poem. It's a common Japanese poetry form that usually, but not always, has to do with nature. It follows a syllable pattern of (5,7,5).

    "You don't want to eat a dirty biscuit." "Then I guess you'll just have to feed it to me." "Then you and I were thinking the exact same thought." *gives a bite, and then slowly and awkwardly takes a bite out of the biscuit*

  • I also had a more lovey-dovey one that was written for my crush. Hehehe. So I'm not sharing that one right now.

    This next one is about Stan Lee, the creator of Marvel. I did add a little bit in here to have it make more sense. Enjoy!

    Snow is falling
    in the frigid
    cold air.
    Skies are gray,
    people cry,
    mourning
    the loss of
    their
    hero.
    Their hero did not
           wear a
                       cape.
             Instead, through his
    creative
    imagination,
    inspired a world of
    peace          and equality.
              Not all heroes wear capes.
    They just make the world a
        better
                        place.

  • Sorry I'm posting so much. I just don't want to have one really long post. I also wrote one that said "Just Monika" several times as satire cause I wasn't sure what to write so yeah.
    I also came up with the quote "Nobody is TERRIBLE at anything. They simply have a different style of doing things."


    My Next poem is a bit lovey-dovey but not like over the top. I did use a quote from Yuno Gasai (Future Diary (みらい にっき )) in here.  Enjoy.

    Crazy

    I feel as though I'm going crazy
    nearly unstable
    As I think of you.
    But
    "What's crazy is
    this world that
    refuses to lt
    me be with
    you."
    What is the point if
    I
    can't be your
    everything?
    Your sunshine,
    your happiness.
    And that's it.
    I'm gone.
    Completely
    Crazy.
    -------------------------------------------------------------
    Okay, I hope you enjoyed that! I have one final one to post and I may be gradually adding more to it.

    Ooo I love poetry @HBforever!!!  I have a poem let me post it!

    Also if you want you can look at my story I'm posting!


    Here is my poem its about my dog:

    He's gold and soft, he loves to play
    I can't imagine him another way!

    He's sweet and kind and wags his tail
    oh how I love my doggy pal

    He sleeps on my bed and we share my food
    On rainy days he brightens my mood

    If you have a dog you know that's its true
    You'll find no one like them, your whole life through


    It's not the best, but I thought I'd share it!!

  • I’m not going to post my entire poem here, because it is graphic, but I will post a bracket of it. I wrote this poem for my Uncle who was lost to 09/11, he came here earlier before my family did from Italy and he served as a first responder!

    It’s a bit sad, but it’s my favorite piece. Since it’s a bit of a “colorful” poem, I will post the filtered part only. This was the ending to the poem I had written:

    “...With your presence, there’s a hero we can always find.
    We hope one day the world won’t be so blind.
    We don’t think you have the slightest clue,
    that you’re needed and your heart is so true.
    You’re wonderful in a time that it’s found to be so rare.
    Please remain honest, and we’ll always be there.
    Stay safe, and blessed be, for we shall call you the peacemaker.”

  • Okay story time. I'm going to tell y'all about what inspired me to get into writing poetry. 
    So you might be wondering, "Forever, why DID you start writing poetry?"
    The answer: Doki Doki Literature Club. 

    Mostly because of how Monika (or maybe it was Yuri...?) mentioned that poetry is a creative way to express yourself, and I was like, "I wanna do that too!"

    xD Your welcome.

  • @goldenpuppy Thank you, so was yours! I intend to read your story over the weekend since I have some down time. :)

    @HBforever Lol, we can build a room to look like a cafe and recite poetry? XD It's something else to do in the game, besides our little adventures.

  • these are wonderful poems! i loved reading them. in my senior year of high school i chose Poetry class for my english requirement.  i love haiku and limericks! 

    @sugarandcoffee - i know you don't want to post but i would really be interested in reading your entire poem about your uncle.  i am a native new yorker and had just passed by the twin towers that morning.  i used to always look up at them, they were so majestic. we went to Windows on the World in July of 2001 for dinner and my twin daughters, who could see the twin towers from their bedroom window on the third floor of our house, were so excited to be there. they used to call them "our twin towers - twins like us!"  they were 5 years old.  thankfully i didn't lose anybody very close to me, but i do have a lot of friends who did. nevertheless, all the 9/11 attacks affected the entire country. one of my favorite memories was driving south on the FDR drive on my way home from work one sunday morning at 6:30 am and seeing beautiful double rainbows spanning across the east river from brooklyn and ending behind the twin towers!  so if you are ok with it, pls send the entire poem to me, or the parts you want to send, in a private message. i'm so sorry for your loss. your uncle will always be remembered as a hero who gave unselfishly to help others and with lots of love by your family.

  • Okay! I'm super excited for today, because I have TWO new poems to share with y'all!
    "You don't want to eat a dirty biscuit." "Then I guess you'll just have to feed it to me." "Then you and I were thinking the exact same thought." *gives a bite, and then slowly and awkwardly takes a bite out of the biscuit*

  • Okay! The first poem I have to share is called "Differences"
    I'm not as confident in this one as I am my other ones, but here we go..

    I'm so different from
    everybody else.
    They act all cool
    While I fade into the background.
    I speak
    but
    nobody listens.
    While others often feel
    alone.
    Misunderstood.
    Ignored.


    That was the main part of the poem. This next part is probably considered the chorus because I originally wanted to write more and turn it into a song.

    Our differences are what make
    us special.
    One day
    we'll show the world that
    we are worthy of
    being heard.
    Our differences can make us stronger.
    Don't let the world tell you
    what you can and cannot do.
    We're the ones who
    have the
    potential
    to change
    the
    world.
    Show them what we can do.

    And this last one I wrote for one of my really good friends on VFK. @sugarandcoffee This is for you. :D


    Coco
    ------------
    There's something special about
    her.
    While she acts all silly around
    her friends,
    on the inside she is caring
    and smart.
    She is always willing to help
    her friends in whatever way
    possible,
    even though she is constantly
    studying and learning
    to become a radiologist therapist,
    she helps those around her
    ENDLESSLY.

  • Holy tomato!! :O

    That's so cute, I love the gesture. 

    Although, there's only one thing I might add, I'm studying to become a radiology therapist that works with cancer patients. I'm not doctor status, lol. My mind would go to mush. 

    I appreciate it, thank you chicky pooooo. <3
