This was the first poem I ever saved.



Drink, Drink, Drink away the sorrow
Maybe to never see another tomorrow
Never Paying attention to the people you love
Losing everyone around you looking down from above.

Hoping to see a familiar face
Being lost in this unfamiliar place
Trying to breathe underwater
My hopes and dreams will never falter.

Finally waking up with a scream
Knowing Im still alive and so is my dream.
I'm a Fricking Delight =]

I used to write. Not sure where the diary I had went. But I’ll give it a go.

I was Sgt Pepsi in a Coca Corolla.
They call me co dependent, fairytale, happily ever after daydreamer.
That great house I live in.
I imagine in a subsidence as I ride shotgun down the avalanche.
Believing that the things in the woods are would be creatures of the night.
I look there and get the fear.
Crash course on the sofa.
Floored from the bed.
Sport mode and paddle shift I make a slick get away.
New old stock and oem from Frankfurt.
A moment staring at the genuine hardwood floors.
I let the music give me the feeling.
I suddenly imagine you were there and the sexual tension intensifies.
Dismiss to the abyss.
The abysmal thoughts.
Pure as any bride wishes to be.
“I just wanna live the life I please
I don't want no enemies
I don't want nothing if I have to fake it
Never take nothing don't belong to me”

No, I definitely don't write poetry. I hate poetry. It beats around the bush too much and is just, well, artsy-fartsy (but I admire qualities poets have that have nothing to do with their poetry such as their dedication to craft, competence at what they do etc). But with poetry, just fckin say it, bro. I don't have time to sift through thirty fckin' lines of obscure language and try to piece it all together to come to the final conclusion that there is hate in the world, trump sucks, your ex is a cunt, etc. I also hate the self-indulgent aspect of poetry. I went to poetry slam once and all they did was get up there and whine about men and patriarchy and this and that...."I WAS RAPED by his eyes" and all other stupid silly microaggressions that feminist brainwashed cunts and antifa Nazi fucks cry about, cuz they have nothing better to do with their pathetic, spoiled, trust fund baby existence. Let me do slam fckin' poetry. I'll bash the shit out of everybody.

Aww come on lynx. Poetry is how you feel. Why not just do slam poetry here.
I will say I like that you speak your mind. :)

Modern poetry tend to be deeply pretentious bullcrap, much of the time. But How can someone not appreciate the likes of Wordsworth or Tennyson? Lovelace? Milton? Sure, modern poetry doesn't have mcuh of real subtance to say. But in times of yore. Well.

Softly placed, two feet descend to earth
Stars and smoke now orbiting my head
Whispering a chorus to the dead
As I sat there waiting for her birth

Testimony beckons forth a man
Cosmic threads embrace my flesh and sing
From the tendrils, notes of ether ring
From the void is where this all began

Now I'm praying in a blood soaked cave
Time abandons me and I'm alone
Surrounded by this never ending stone
My voice unheard above the crashing waves.
Ombra mai fu
di vegetabile
cara ed amabile
soave più

Here’s one of mine

Potato prone pears perished
Tables trekked tedious trees
Strained sieves spontaneously sue
Knackered knuckles know
Thoughtful thighs threatened
Odd observations object
Himalayan harvest harm homesick herbicides

Sometimes,

It is like that.
A simple acceptance of the unfair reality,
A semblance of tolerance.
The Cowardice of meaning, economics of thought.

It's hard to dissociate with the world,
to become not a part of the universe,
when every part of us exists here.
it's hard to accept the disgust of forgetting and of timelessness.

we will still be okay. we are just doing fine.
things are looking normal on your end.

the weekend was our downfall,
and it feels karmaic that I feel,
the utmost displeasure of epicaricacy-on my upturned lips,
I could feel the guise of the frown.

It will always be unfair to us,
to our minds, to the universe.
that existence,

the moment reality breaks.

I learned that on my palms were the beginning of this morose delectation.
I was happy for you, too.

I still remember you
Do you remember me?


Do you remember the first time i said Hi?
How about the last time we said Bye?

Do you remember that night we got drunk?
How about the night you slept in my bunk?


Do you remember the long walks home?
How about the night long talks on the phone?


Do you remember the laughs?
How about the long paragraphs?


Do you remember the rejections?
How about my imperfections?


Do you remember that night?
How about your flight?


Do you remember my pain?
You dont because your the one I blame.


Do you remember me?
Because I dont want to remember you.

Dark Room, Alone,
My thoughts are sown.

Dark Room, Silence,
There is no compliance.

Dark Room, Numb,
I let out a soft humm.

Dark Room, A Light,
Maybe I can still fight.

Dark Room, Hope,
I know I can cope.

Dark Room, Happy,
I don't feel so sappy.

Dark Room, Goodbye,
I will not lie.

Light Room, Hello,
I want everyone to know.

Light Room, Gay,
Im here to stay.

I write quite a few. A lot of them are about my love of nature or animals, as well as both the good and bad sides of people.

I wish I could scream

I wish I could dream

I wish I could feel

I wish I could squeal

I wish I could cry

I wish I could lie

I wish I could smile

I wish I could dial

I wish I could hide

I wish I could glide

I wish I could leave

I wish I could greave



I wish I could see you
I wish you could see me

This never ending cloud hanging over me,

It's with me when I feel happy,
It's with me when I'm sad,
Its with me when I feel crappy,
It's with me when I'm glad.

Everywhere I go I feel it,
Stalking my every decision,
They tell me just deal with it
But every second is a deeper incision.

I can never seem to shake it,
No matter how hard I try.
My life, please just take it,
So you won't see me cry.

This never ending cloud hanging over me,
This never ending crowd clanging near me.
I'm a Fricking Delight =]

I write them .but they are mostly songs ..
Tho i have a book by William Wordsworth .. and i can say it's really nice ..got it last year in london ... but it's not what i'm looking for!
I want something more dark and more morbid ... at least close to what i write ..

Wordsworth is awesome and he did some stuff that, perhaps isn't dark but can be quite melancholy.
