    Save Paper, Post Poems Here!

    Like the title says, post your poems and other literary works here. You're welcome to give constructive criticism or praise to other people's work as well.

    I call this poem, "Frozen Questions".

    Father, why am I so cold?
    Two moons have passed since Winter last arrived
    Does it rain now, when just minutes ago, not a single cloud
    flew freely in the skies above?

    Why do I feel so tired, father?
    I now muster everything I can just to speak
    Has fighting everyday worn me down?

    Why does it grow ebony, father?
    When merely seconds ago, it was midday
    Where has the color gone from my sight?

    Where did you go, father?
    You were here beside me, collapsed at the base of my chest
    Why does time stop?

    Why do I hear echoes of your cries, father?
    Luminescent is the path I follow now, like you always wanted for me
    Will you not come with me?
    Will I see you again, father?

    Very nice poem man. (Yes, I read it that quickly)

    Key phrase being "used to", hence why I made this thread.

    Thanks! I'm surprised you read that as fast as you did.

    It still got merged with the Art Studio lol it's why all of Brie's writing is posted in there and not a specific forum.
    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    You're more than welcome to move it to the Art Studio, then. In the meantime, I'll post another one of my works.

    This one is a set of unused lyrics called Annihilation.

    A thought stabs up, growing from my toes and ripping through me,
    until it stifles everything else and becomes the only thing I'm thinking.
    It fills me up like a silent scream.

    The beast with rancor as boundless as the universe
    To pilfer the sun, the moon, the stars from the sky
    And raze the planet of all innocent life

    As I lay here in this bed
    Strength and pride are scraped and bled
    Rather'd pull the plug till dead

    Annihilate all that I love
    Torture turns me to God's sycophant
    I wither away and nobody cares

    Considered a dead man walking as they mourn my loss
    Adaptive, cunning beast destroys who I am
    Tear my world asunder instantly

    As I lay here in this bed
    Strength and pride are raped and bled
    Rather'd pull the plug till dead

    Annihilate all that I love
    Torture turns me to God's sycophant
    I wither away and nobody cares

    All I had turned their backs on me as the beast had me felled
    Transformed and snapped whilst I wilt into another so gaunt

    As I lay here in this bed
    Strength and pride are raped and bled
    Rather'd pull the plug till dead

    Annihilate all that I love
    Annihilate...
    Annihilate all that you want
    Annihilate...

    Extortionist that otherwise only exists in dreams
    He shall become my god
    Feed your fears and your faith will starve to death...

    Fear the Reaper.

    We fear the Reaper for many things. When it's our time, a loved one, or a cherished one we may not have ever known.
    The Reaper looms over all, watching and waiting for us to pay our dues and return to him, back to whence we came.
    In the home of the living, or in the home of the passed, the Reaper waits in silence.
    As we live, day by day, we live as if we die soon, not because we have a long life, but because we fear a life cut short by the Reaper.
    We wish not to see nor feel his scythe, take us from this mortal plane, so we run to avoid it, fearing when we leave.
    Yet, when a loved one hurts, we no longer fear what the Reaper has in store for them, as we wish the Reaper to take them 'way to end their suffering.
    However we become angered with the Reaper, for doing his job, for taking our loved one away. We become sad, we lose our sense of life, and gain a temporary sense of grief.
    We fear the Reaper, for not what he takes from one, but what he brings to all.

    Thanks. Some death in my family occured last night and that is something and probably the only thing I could find that could describe how I feel about it.
