I don't know much about poems but I read one in my high school english textbook called A poison tree. Is that considered as a "dark" poem?

I come here to muse.
See when things bother me I write about it. It’s not always a poem.
Also since I can’t say what I would really like to say. I put it here in words of expression.

For example:

Be careful of those you pony up with.
Shallowness lacks depth perception.
Hindsight will always come into focus.
A media darling now.
A pariah after the gossip exchanges.
“I got no trophies on display
I sign them away
I mean what the heck”

Not a poem but a truth in words for once. Or damn near it. The opening where it says “they say I’m wrong” is an answer to those who have challenged my political views and beliefs. I simply do not align to a lot of LGBTQ politics. Simply no one has lived the life I have to impose their opinions and indoctrination’s on me. I don’t do it to others I simply ask it not be done to me. I will only handle so much before I snap.

The rest is about finances, drowning in debt, disagreeing with those who do drugs(don’t like folks who do it. When a junkie breaks into your home and steals you lose a lot of faith in humanity. You can support em all ya like. I don’t support folks who hurt others), and walking away from my mortgage.
Furthermore after the house was broken into it no longer felt like a home. The only place I ever felt safe I no longer feel safe because some loser had to get his high.
Say what you will. You haven’t lived my life. I understand addiction is a problem. But do not deny my anger and invalidate my feelings.


It’s near bed time.
Woeful b sides from Sheryl Crow’s first album fill the living room with regret.
They tell me I’m wrong.
Apply opinions and indoctrination without understanding.
No one has lived this life and few have ever tried to understand.
I relish the thoughts of walking away from that land that overlooks a billion years of history.
How else can I live?
My life at the hands of investors, bankers, and taxes.
It taxed my mind to the breaking point.
The property desecrated by a drug addict I had never wronged or known.
The society was on his side.
As I relish the thoughts.
I have big ambitions still.
I don’t know where I’m going, I don’t know what I’m going.
The financial burden is tightening around my neck.
Family and friends ask “have you lost weight?”
I dare not speak the truth.
I keep silent, keep it all in, and suffer.
Albeit once in a while I put in words for the world to see.
No one says anything. No one asks about it.
I carry on. I have lots to do.
Understand we all suffer.
No one person’s
feelings, race, religion, sexuality, identity, or anything override another’s.
At least in my world it doesn’t.
You don’t know what I’ve lived.
“I got no trophies on display
I sign them away
I mean what the heck”

The Fakes

People are always gonna smile in your face.
Fake their pace to win the race.
Backhanded comments abound and always around.
Personal gain by using and abusing you to gain admiration of others.
But when you bare your teeth in sheer anger.
They recoil at their foils.
As if they had done nothing wrong.
They select their posse and get real bossy.
They flaunt their cock of the walk and skulk about like clowns in town.
I know them plenty and I won’t vanish into the banishment.
“I got no trophies on display
I sign them away
I mean what the heck”

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.


Aware that this post is from almost a year ago, but thought it could be resurrected in the form of poetry. That is, if it wasn't already a poem. I'm not sure. Contemporary poetry can get pretty weird in its boundary pushing, I hear. :P

Several Poems – lynx

I – On the Nature of Poetry

No.
I definitely don’t write poetry.
I hate.

II – On the Necessity of Brevity in the Face of Mortality

Poetry: It beats around the bush too much and is just, well,
Artsy-fartsy.
Just fucking say it, bro.
I don’t have time to sift
through thirty fucking lines.

III – More Notes on the Nature of Poetry

Obscure language to peace.
It: all together

IV – On Going with the Flow

To come to The Final Conclusion:
There is hate in this world.
Trump sucks, your ex is a cunt,
etc.
I also hate the self-indulgent.

V – On Poetry and Patriarchy

Aspect of Poetry: I went to a poetry slam.
Once.
All they did was get up there and whine.
About men,
About patriarchy,
And this,
And that,
And all the other.

VI – On Aggression

Stupid, silly microaggressions:
Feminist brainwashed cunts!
Antifa Nazi fucks!

VII – On Becoming a Poet

They have nothing better to do
With their pathetic, spoiled, trust fund baby existence.
Let me do slam fuckin’ poetry!
I’ll bash the shit out of everybody.

Enjoying everyone's poems. Might try to actually write one rather than shamelessly appropriate next time. :P
