A Poem I Wrote Before

Another older piece I had been fond of, and completist that I am, I like to show all sides of the poetic spectrum, so to speak. I still kind of like it because it is rather tongue in cheek, but still has a darker side to it. In any event, enjoy.

'A Poem I Wrote Before'

I think I wrote this poem before,
About a boy and a girl who loved each other
No more.

It is an old tale, a brief tale
Yet a very mediocre tale.
He reaches to her, she runs away
This boy and girl who loved each other
No more.

It is a sad tale, a warm tale but
Not a very intriguing tale.
I'm quite sure you've heard this poem before.

So why do I write this poem I wrote before?
About this boy and girl who loved each other
No more.

Love is the same poem I wrote before
Told by many lovers, many madmen, many broken Hearts...
Many poems we have all written before.

It is a mad tale, a romantic tale, and a very
Tragic tale.
No need for you to hear it;
No need to write it.
I know I have written this poem before.

I long for the day when I will write this poem
No more.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for the Poe-etic sentiments Sorry, couldn't resist... Poe is one of my favorite poets. (and not a bad story writer either).

Yes, enjoyed. One for you, same 'type', sort of:

I used to love him a long, long time ago;
but I don't anymore. I swear that is so.
He's been gone for years; I forget how many.
He is out of my mind. I don't have any.
Parting without words, not even one last touch;
he just left with my heart, so I don't feel much.

Now, we {as in me and my 7 personalities} are returning to our regularly scheduled banality programming...as in...*sigh* I think 'geeks' are just soooo cute!

Most excellent... definitely has an upbeat rhythm, but much more morose. I've had that backfire on me on occasion, tone not matching rhythm. But usually, the imagery usually lets me off the hook


btw, thanks... being 'nerdy' and 'geeky' comes naturally, lol.

{Re: tone and rhythm} I was going for the schizophrenia type mentality...I seem to come by it naturally!

I think the best poetry is subconscious at times. You have to feel, not think (kind of like using the Force If you really think too hard about a poem... in my case, if I haven't finished in under an hour, then start over, or attack it from another angle. Of course, if you have a good idea, don't let it go to waste either. I think what I do, is see the words how I would say them, then let it flow. The above poem is certainly borne of that methodology.
