View Full Version : Write an ANGRY poem

Ok...so I heard some bad news this morning that REALLY got me steaming. The first thing I did was find myself opening a Microsoft Word document and furiously jotting down whatever words came to my head.
The end result wasn't my best work at all, but it made me feel a lot better.

Anyway, here please share any poem that was written about/inspired by/has anything to do with the emotion anger.

Here is what I came up with 10 minutes ago:


Every beautiful thing I touch
Turns to my dust.
Every beautiful thing I make
Every ounce of hope we generate
Is all ripped through my eyes
And shoved through their ***
Burnt at the stake without a tear

Thereís no good people left to fight
This year.

I'm sorry I touched you when you didn't want me to.
I'm sorry I approached you when you didn't want it either.
Clearly we need to...OK, I need to work on my communication issues.
Maybe we can work out some time when we can get together
sit down, discuss which situations would be good for us to have contact,
agree the types of contact you'll feel comfortable with and
perhaps, agree a set of signals to quickly indicate what is permissible at any given moment,

you uptight, anal, purse-lipped, lemon sucking shard of hate.

Just tell me what hoops to jump through and I'll do it.

Hot fury

Hot fury burns within me
Exploding inside me
Tearing at my lungs, and heart, and stomach
Tortured beyond internal measure
White hot fire stings
Consumes me
Violently

Inside I feel a thousand daggers
Driven into my chest
They twist and gauge
Bleeding me
Trying to let out some of this emotion
Before it bursts out
Hurting me and others

In my mind I can see broken glass
Shattered and splintered
I can see the pieces tearing my skin
Opening vents for this anger
This anger which is slowly wrenching
Pulling me apart inside
To kill me

I feel my nerves singe
They are quivering
Waiting for a merciful release
So that they can lunge out
And rip, and smash and grind
Anything to get this all out of me
It’s burning me inside

Help me!
I’m so afraid of letting go
So afraid of the hurt I’ll cause
To myself and others
When this monster inside of me is unleashed
And calls destruction upon it’s world

Pensive

Hated the idea of death
Have started to entertain
Ideas of my death
Just to wonder what your
Reaction on it would be
Impatient and I were synonymous
Now waiting for your presence
Has fetched off the old me somewhere else
And you don't know how it hurts
To see you don't know it all
And even if you do, you don't care
If you care, you don't show

Unaware, it is eating me

Don't know whether to call it a poem, seeing how badly written it is but well I feel quite angry, so just wrote it.

blp

Actually, I think it's pretty good, Pensive, especially: 'has fetched off the old me somewhere else', but also the strange mangled syntax earlier around 'impatient' and 'synonymous'.

I really like it too Pensive.
It has a kind of random, messy flow...but when I am angry I am always choppy in my mind, and choppy when i speak. So it made sense to do it like that.

Burn me with fury and rage
the twisting coils writhing underneath my skin
Making me think murder and rage
and shooting guns
going off like flares in the night
calling to me like sirens and snares
to cut the living skin of self
and whisper
"i loved you, I loved you well
but now
I hate you a thousand times more
than I ever loved you"
drowning in hot rage

I kind of suck at poems. I cant' rhyme and I mess up the meter badly.

I hate our lobbyist democracy
I want to contradict hypocracy
But sadly corporate plutocracy
Supports low-quality monopolies
The thing is it isn't stopping me
From me being what I want to be
I guess that means the problem's me
Maybe I need to clmb a tree
Maybe pull out a knife and bleed
Or just straight up get high to see
I'm not that good with rhyming schemes
I am lying in blinding seas
And thus I find that hiding seems
To be my choice, what I recieve
I have social anxiety
It's no excuse for my erring
It's not even my irony
That I imagine zion dreams
Of future life and I believe
That if I try then time will see
Real politics, a dying breed
Marginalised in spite of things
Which make it so we fight to feed
Many of us hate life and fiend
But never me, I'd rather be
Sentient to what's happening
But still blazed up on habit weed
Sometimes get drunk, but haven't been
The times just suck, I have to bring
-To make it so my eyes can see-
Some salve just like the lines I've breathed
It's temporary, I'm naive
Procrastinator I'm indeed
Inherited my violent greed
Blame others for what I succeed
I see right through the lies perceived
As propoganda, I precede
The proper stanzas, rhymes I read
I must be wasted I'm decieved
Hate this place, I'm trying to leave
And though I feel that I'm the mean
Maybe the grass that's mine is green
But what about the dying seeds
Once in a while hear crying screams
They're heads, so stoic I will be
Despite where all my trials lead
We sapiens are vile beings
So at all costs, know I will eat
Though I'm so poor, know I'm elite
I hate that I love my defeat
To government inspired speach
That's just life, you die and repeat

Eh...I guess it doesn't seem too angry.

Oniw, I think this one is ripe to sing, full of beats and rhymes.

Failure makes me angry-
how years of persistence and devotion,
dedication and passion cannot buy talent,
how you can try and try and try and try
until your hands are black and stiff,
until your only memories are of
rusted factories spewing rancid soot
and still, you will stumble.

That is why Hope makes me angry,
Because it is foolish, useless- a yearning
for something far beyond your reach, like
a swimmer allowing the current to drag him down
on a sunny day.

War makes me angry, simply because
I donít think I care enough to find my own truth.

And Love, love makes me angry
because it is such a simple, easy word;
misleading and conniving; slithering
off the edges of tongues when the
heart is a dead organ.

And it makes me angry that I canít explode words,
tear metal or rip carpet when I am angry.
Iím annoyed that Iím not angry enough.
And it makes me angry that I canít see all the small things
and that I canít write and I donít think.
And I hate how Ďangryí doesnít have the impact that I need.
And I hate how I canít make up my own words.

But what really boils my blood is that
it is so easy to be angry.

Okay, just wrote this one and thought this might be an okay place to post it. I wonder if anybody gets it or it's probably some senseless sh*t.

Title: Does It Hurt Too Much To Care?

Yes
No
Okay
Right
Wrong
Fine
Mine
Hi
Bye
Without any explanation
Without any description
Without any conviction
Am sick of this briefness
What kind of friendship is this?
What sort of love?
Where chatting for more than a few minutes
Would get you pissed?
Where sharing something with me
Would get you in trouble?
Where starting a conversation by your own
Would get your knickers in a knot?
Thinking it's so cool
As if we are together because
A woman only understands the language
Of shoe
Your thinking.
Reading your diary
Opened many forbidden doors
Thinking that I
Would leave you forever
If we got closer
If you become open
Your ideas make something in me
Scream.
Perhaps our relationship was a mistake
You never apparently understood me
I never had an access to your thoughts either
I know now your diary better than you
Which you decided to trust more than ever
You could trust me and entrust
Your thoughts to me
Stop torturing me
Order this pain to stop
Just by having a long chat
With unnecessary silly big words as you call them
No formality
No preciseness
No conciseness
Or slowly
Your lack of care
Might erase the existence
Of our commitment to each other

I wonder what you say
On our commitment's deathday
"Glad it's over"?
Or
"I knew this would be it"?
Or
"Bye, I don't care"?
Would you utter one of the
Longest sentence that ever
Have you said in your whole life
Related to me
To me?

Does it hurt to forget some old ideas
Written in your diary and to erase them
More than it hurts to erase a part of somebody's heart?
Does it hurt too much to care?
Does it hurt too much to care?

You look me in the eyes
what do you see?
My eyes are green, but when I see you, they turn steaming red
like flames

Look what you did to me
Look a little closer
You played me like a fool

Look at me
I hate that I love you that it hurts
Look at me again,
A little closer


What do you see?
My eyes turning red,
Why?
Because I hate to love you.

Dear Members,
Here is my anger in poetry.

A place like home.
---------------------
Tut!this my home?A mess and with papers ,books everywhere,

Who will clean it? Me?Oh! I have no time,


Anger swells and you want to burn the mess,

But look within and tell me can you burn yourself?

At stake ,is order,and around the corner lurks disorder,

The universal disorder too,via media,

What to do with it?Switch the T.V.Off?

Men in disoder and women cleaning after them,

Women in disorder and the whole house stinks.

Oh! Give me some rest for I am the charwoman of this earth,

God fumes in untter disgust and in anger.

Here comes a Tsunami,run before you are cleaned out.

i don`t know if it counts as angry, but it`s about as mad i ever got, so i guess we can pretend


WHY?!
why are you so much better than me?
this thing called god created us equally
so how can you stand there saying "no"
i placed my heart into one sentence
and you stole it
you didn`t even give me the satisfaction of watching you break it
you hid away my only heart
locked it in a cage to rot
and now in my dreams, i see you there
a tear falling from your empty eye
and i wake in sweat, cursing under my breathe
why can`t i just forget you!?!
tell my why if your so much better than me!
but you don`t know, you`ll never understand
the pain i hold inside is yours to command
you could make my day, or snuff out my soul
and i guess you chose the latter
they allways do
and i want to hurt you, make you feel
but that heart you hid away restrains me
these cold shackles i just can`t feel
allways there, never noticed
just like myself i suppose

Keep up the good work, all. Maybe we should make an angry-poem collection. :)

But what the devil do you think you're doing?
I was in line first and I'm doing my best;
Will you lay off of it you annoying pest!?
You think me rude? What a cold coencidence!
I think you could give lessons in what rude is!

I think I'll stick my stuff back on the shelf!

Some son or daughter of a female dog has got one big nasty surprise in store for him or her, from me! Granted, I know you only from our PMs and that whole kind, moderate, deeply empathetic sweet and tender person I've come to know by that means might be all just an act, right?

lol nah, Jer it's not an act although there are times i wish i were as jaded as i sometimes pretend to be. us sensitive saps tend to get our feelings hurt pretty easily. your protectiveness is extraordinarily sweet. true friends are hard to come by and i'm glad i have you for one.

Here's an angry poem I wrote a while back- It's pretty crapola, but there aren't many angry poems. Usually when I am in turmoil I can't write much:

And I am back to being the queen
of nothingness
How many ways can you say
(of course all left unsaid)
that you're not going to give me
what I want
And so I make love to the night
in nothingness
cigarette and pen in hand
to readjust to the mundane
of the goodnight kiss
with no meaning
And I know there was distance today
but nothingness
was the claim you made about my intuition
When you could have wrapped me up
any moment
and declared, "You!
You are breath, too...."
And so I am left to withdrawl
into nothingness
where I have lived for so long.

Re #43: Way to go, Dude(tte)!

But women aren't the only ones who've been effed over! (Posted this once before, I think. Apologies)



Take your vibrator and your husband,
hot summer lust, eyes
of a depraved child, and--

Have you looked at your tickets,
for Chrissake? They're marked
"Disorder" and "Misrule." Punch
and counterpunch
will seal you on that train

to nowhere. In the dining-car
they're serving pure poison
at outrageous prices,
and you're first in line.

Slope-necked for punishment and with
your lovely large lips
a little bit parted,
you heard them murmuring in the bar:

"Lunch? it's real poison!"
and you just had to be the first in line.

This is angry-esque:

The Way You Look At Me Now

I am only just a mother
with child
trying to kep down her breakfast.
No longer am I alluring
but another being to care for;
a responsibility
to make sure she's alright.
And when we spoke on the phone
we were back to being
like strangers
who happen to share the same life
A life that I don't want
in which I have no identity except
as mother
trying to keep down her breakfast.

I've already agreed to a load of different things
that mean my life won't be what I wanted
First I don't get to go back to there
Then I don't get to go to a place that's like there, but here
Then you take me to a place not like there, but OK
Then you put me on the wrong bus and I end up
at some other place that's clearly not nice
and after the mistake is cleared up
and I go to the nice (but not there) place
you find a flat nearer the not nice place
and I have to go there. It's almost as if
you were looking around for the worst possible outcome
So I'd completely give up saying what I wanted.
And that's what I've done.

He lied
All the grown men cried
A bunch of LIES!
They are worse then flies
Slay them all
Throw them through the door
Smush them into the floor
Until they are no more
But why would he?
Could it be?
No never
I'LL KILL HIM WITH THY FEATHER
Thy ink and quill
Is more powerful then any amount off bill
My Quill
Is what i shall use to kill
Destroy his name
Its now my game
I don't care about fame
Fame is lame
It clouds the mind
People become less kind
Steeling...
Give's me this feeling
I lift my head to the ceiling
He will pay
For every day
He stole my work
Still giving me that evil smirk
Her hugs and kisses
Are full of blisses
But now she's gone
No longer on my front lawn
Now i mourn
I feel so torn
Ripped inside
Knowing now she'll never be mine
I can't cry
I'd rather die
Can't you see through this lie?
Can you feel my pain
It drives me insane
This fear
Has never made things so clear to me
It leaks to me
Speaks to me
Now i know what i have to do
I have found the clue
When will i make this due?
Opening and Closing
While haunting my dreams
This dream can no longer be reality
Its insanity


I might have used to much anger lol

Here

I'm here.

You don't know what I went through to get here.
I left home two hours ago to get here.
I woke at 4 in the morning to get here.

But I'm here.

You see we had an agreement.
I would be here
And the plane would be here.
Not in 90 minutes.
Not at another gate.
Here, now, you see it even says on my ticket

Not that you care, not that it matters what I went through, what I think, what I say, what I do.
If I'm here I can just sit here and be happy you're even bothering to send the plane at all,
Be happy you haven't closed shop and run away with my $400 and my checked bags.
I can just be happy you even bother to acknowledge my pitiful existence.

But I'm here.

Why would you do such stupid stuff
You are one who I used to trust
Bruising the fun, you coup'ed the love
Crack is a drug that you should lust
Only to be a stooge or dunce
You stole from me, I proved it once
I let that go for who you was
-Er who you were, what you've become
Is nothing more than glutton scum
I face the war, exuberant
I move faster than you could run
If you're surprised, then you are dumb
Since on the rise is Thor succumbed
To snake poison, the ward is done
In other words, if through the gun
The threat will leave as prudence numbs
Even though the score's 0-1
Heathens know the lord o' rum
No hard feelings if more don't come

(I know this poem sucks but I'm so angry right now I don't care)

Paco P.

my self is my hatred
My anger and disgust
My misery and my blood
And you are the hated
The prey, enemy, shaitan
I hope the alcohol destroys your liver
and I can watch you die in pain
My joy
Because my anger is my self
From now and ever
I hate you, i would kill you
See, this is what you have made of me
I dream of the flesh, slowly peeling away
And showing what lies beneath
The sickening rot of your mind
The smell of alcohol
I wait for your death
And at the thought of it smile
You bastard!

A Fatal Encounter

Write your memoir in blood,
my Lucifer, now full of rage
driving a knife through my heart,
once raw and green
with fresh love in spring.
The time has come
and I am no longer afraid to
leave behind the garden of delight
where the fruit has decayed
and my old dreams
have been well and truly lost.

Apoplexy

Something called Providence built this sole
Something called Progenitor gave it a home,
Something called innocence got locked in time
Something called Apoplexy was birthed in mind.

I took it out on Providence
He took away my Progenitor
Innocence is still lost in time
Apoplexy is still in my mind.

You know, this can't keep happening.
First, there aren't any openings,
then, you want me back, right away --
in fact, maybe yesterday!
I would have said, "Just wait right here!"
But there is that fear
of having no money,
and so I relent, reluctantly.
Graveyard, you say, that's the only shift
well, odd hours aren't fun, but I'll make the best.
And now today, for about the fifth time
you say there's no work -- the night is mine.
What happened to giving me a call?
I could have stayed in, or gone out, after all!
All of this funny business just isn't cool
It's starting to make me wish I was back in school.

I was only human after all;
my husband was godlike my husband did not turn but how could he leave you behind without even saying goodbye-
now you are etched in my mind as my features are etched on my face;
one last glimpse of you-
but I loved you I loved your sinfulness, I could forgive;
but god could not-
especially after everything even god's decree but I had to see you one last time I had to say goodbye;
my husband the pious my husband the stoic did not even turn-

I stride around my town with stomping tread,
my morning light reduced to angry dark.
At 9 AM I barely see the park.
I mumble as I break my lover's bread.

And yet it started glorious and sunny,
no hint of doom as I went out to buy
my lover's favourite loaf, a crusty rye,
some butter, eggs, and lots of drizzly honey.

The smell of bread's forever mixed up with:
the scent of she-who-left-my-blue-striped-bed,
and stumbling-words-she-never-should-have-said.
My crazy, happy world's a sudden myth.

And though I thought my love would never go
I growl, I should have chosen sourdough!

Interesting rhyme scheme you've got there: ABBA CDDC EAAE FF. That's not a traditional Shakespearean schema, right? The volta is a bit weak - I can't tell if it's at line 9 or at line 12. Have you tried re-organizing the verses to create a more substantial volta?

The trochees on lines 5 and 8 work, though you've got to be careful with altering the form too far. But here, I think they work.

I like the hyphenated lines. They suggest the kind of run-on phrasing one hears at times, as in, "she-who-must-be-obeyed".

Good effort. Will you be revising it?

Hey Gitksan Guy, no worries if no-one replies to your obviously fun poem. It's a complex place here, nobody can be everywhere at once.

Meanwhile, take heart. Your new kitten is savagely destroying all the fuzzy animals in the mobile. If this thread is too old, simply re-submit in a couple of weeks, but not to ancient contests no-one's reading anyway. :)

I put this in its own thread before, but didn't see the angry poem thread until now.


The sun, savage on my eyes, reflects the heat. Burning away my peace...

There were once crops there, in that land.
But now the people, scounging for food, fading away with sickness and hunger
have long since bled the land dry.
For you have bled the people dry.
You and your fat hyenas laugh,
while babies, eyes bulging in swollen faces
stare at the sky in shallow graves.

Your two hands crush the land. Their grip will not loosen.
Can you not see the peoples' blood, seeping through the cracks of your white house?
Can you not see the price of your kingship?

The bread basket is broken.
The bread basket is broken.

I've made your coffin for you,
and I hope you sleep in it soon.

your other face pinned
in your eyes,
butterflies displayed,
once were jitterbugsÖ

thinking you, with your gun

could win the warÖ
believing the moon
owned its pale, mottled light,
and life, persistent as weeds,
cared little where it grewÖ
gone from a pink house,
gray at last.

Lest Old Acquaintance Be Forgot

He would be perfectly content
To make a cocktail with your broken life,
squeeze your tears in his gigantic fist
Stir in something clever;
He would make you drunk,
And you’d let loose
That hideous guffaw
That froze my glance upwards
in terrified prayer:
‘this isn’t it, is it?’

My ability to subdue repulsion
out of misplaced admiration
Is a questionable talent at best.

What a pair you made,
The way you braced yourselves
Against looks from beneath
blackened eyelashes,
Like book-ends holding up
Volumes of his philosophy and your history.
You’ve built entire cities behind them,
and I thought I had stopped trying to see over.
Yet lately, it has occurred to me,
in the unkind way the past slinks past the present,
I can still hear you laugh.

molten eyes swollen with rage
curled fingers rattling the cage
i shake the world and cities crumble
they all die as i mumble,

"you thought you were the ones,
you thought you were chosen,
kind, compassionate, loving, caring
sickly beasts"

i never knew this rage before
that day it broke right through the door
hooded and armed, it killed my family
fingers snapped and ensued calamity

rampaging through the golden streets
realized that rage is much like me
we sat down to a blood breakfast
rage caressed his ruby necklace

"this job is yours now, you see,
you will carry on my legacy"
and rage left my place that morning,
i took his job and now i'm scorning

the cell where i am poked and prodded
yet rage is still here, he hasn't parted
the necklace still molds my skin
this must be what they call sin


By the way, I liked yours Ashera. It was eerie in its simplicity.

With murmurings.

Your precious tale tongue
bleeding and drying,
drifting into silence.
And only we scream.

Love in apogee seems less brilliant
than the reasons for loving, but the pale
girl with her arms reaching out to you
in the deepening night is near. Remember
the brief tide pools—she is there still,
her fragile and alabaster arm in water,
the sightless stars she chose to reach
waiting in the sand for her sightless fingers.

Stop saying that. I'm not doing anything on purpose and
certainly not for the sake of being perverse.
It was just this: I got
excited suddenly
about nothing that I could identify. It's so silly.
A junk pile. A smear of dirt. Some torn
bit of paper on the street next to Why did you...?
What was on your mind when.... ? No, it's not...
That isn't it. Stop trying to get some little

chuckle of recognition out of this, it's.... really, I
mean it. Don't do that, you're irritating me and I will
hit you.
I will. This is not
about how cheaply we can nod at one another. There is

something things I suppose


6% proof chemical beer and skunk for that if you want it,
Sir, Ma'am.

You want to pretend that this pickled half-life approach of yours
is some joke, just what everybody does to




humorously fallible, the little foibles we all....

You're weird. Weird, but you damp it down. Privileged, but you use it just
for sentimental melancholy.

Childhood memory

In the hallway on my knees
heart a beating
Did I say please?

waiting for the light to come
feeling in myself
the excited hum

You told me I had to do
these things which I also knew
whisper to me again
so I can recall their name

I can feel your hot tremor
in the hallway dark
I can still remember
where you left your mark

My knees are still sore
from so long ago
I'm rubbing them for
a time when you know

I will open my eyes
as well as my mouth
and reveal all your lies
and let it all out

HALLMARK DAYS

Some childhood memories

should just be left at the curb

along with the rest of the trash.

Rancid, like a carton of milk

with a picture of a

missing kid on the side

and a 40 year old

Best Before date.


I always thought

Hall missed the Mark.



Mom…

this Mother’s Day 

I just wanted to say

sorry I ruined your life

on the day I was born.



Dad…


It’s Father’s Day
and
I want you to know,

the warm feeling of
your
strong hands
around my throat

stayed with me.

It's an empty shell, in winter
The elusive grasp of the cold
leaving shredded leaves
upon the grass
and tufts that stick up from the snow

Rivullets keep falling down
storming towards the branches
dancing a mad Tango
Encroaching dark fingers
that pull at the winter glow

And what a place is this
a lively garden
burdened by the snow
that turns to slosh and mush
before I get a chance to throw.

Posted this one in my first thread, but not independently.

Adienna's Song.

Wait for me when winter's passed
As earth lifts her white veil -
And underneath, her verdant blush
Blooms o'er her visage pale.

And I, in spring, will wait for you
Though off to wed am I -
Remember love like ours can last
Beyond a flesh-bound tie.

"Here am I, adorned in chains,
With every hook and frill aligned,
My hollow vow rings 'round the altar
His fingers twine in mine -
I'm praying now, through wedding songs,
My wish will speed it's way to you -
To you, my love, my only love,
To whom my hopeful heart belongs..."

Wait for me as summer flies
And heat clouds sense from sight-
The rain that springtime brought last month
Did naught to ease my plight.

I plan to leave the one who forged
The bindings 'round my skin-
The wedding vow that holds me here
And tempts my soul to sin.

"Here am I, adorned for blood,
With desperation besting time -
My once proud heart is craven now
And tempts me to a crime-
Hoping that, in time, will fade
My shame to murder in loveís name -
For us, my love, my only love
I stain the steel of virtueís blade ."


Alone am I, the curtain drops,
The game is up and played -
And you whom I had played it for
Has left our love to fade.

My sword has thrashed down every foe,
All those who held my key,
And now I've chained myself to fate-
My sins imprison me.

"Here am I, adorned for Hell,
With crown and kingdom at my feet,
And here I walk the road I've paved
To Judgment's weary street -
Should mercy come from Satan's mirth
And not from heavenís light-
Your steps, my love, forever, love,
Iíll haunt upon this earth."

Wait for me when autumn's gold
When the earth has cast her chill,
And spirits walk upon her -
I'll be waiting for you still.

And I, so true, will search for you
Though long past dead am I -
Remember loves like ours can last
Beyond a flesh-bound tie.

"Disorder" and "Misrule." Punch

they're serving pure poison
at outrageous prices,
and you're first in line.

Slope-necked for punishment and with
your lovely large lips

One gets a sense that the vibrator had meanings attached. It goes without saying the symbolism of the husband. A betrayal has occurred here. Something precious has been ripped from him. For everything the husband represents and the vibrator incites, this strikes me as an angry line.

HUSH, DONíT MAKE A SOUND


She lay in your strong arms
Trusting and innocent
You drowned her and killed her
Her cries feeble but
Her struggle to live persistent
Naked and defenseless
Punished by you for being
What she had not chosen to be-- A girl
Unwanted, unwelcome
The Mother of Man, deserved to die
So was killed in the womb
By her sons, Cowards all.
Sons of slavish mothers
In drunken stupor
Bought and sold
At will and whim
Some tossed in the ocean and in the seas
Drifting on to unknown shores
Chasing some drunken dream.
Hush, donít make a sound
Here lies the sleeping Indian giant
Donít make a sound
For if the giant wakes
It will be the Judgment Day
And all hell will break loose.

But I know the Truth.
I felt sorry for people who believe Liars Liars.

But I cant. my life will be in danger.

Not sure if it's angry, but I was angry when i wrote it.

Colonized

In a bed of thorns I lay each night
forever in eternal solitude's fight,
alone in the very shadows I've cast,
surrounded by the very walls I've raised.

To suffer in a room devoid of an
audience that gives cheer or praise
it is akin to suffering needlessly.
For who will ever hear of it.

The worlds cruelty arrests my eyes,
A gift of sight that would leave me blind.
In death I fear it will all be left undone
and the roads we've mapped left overrun

In the depths their minds are still fermenting
like so many dark jungles rich and ripe
with promise to be charted and pocked
with the scars of some vile colonization.

The civil conquerors will come again
to steal away with the treasure you keep within.
Of all creations that we have brought to life
There's nothing as vile as this merciless time.

Does anybody ever heard the words "You're not making sense" 'I am angry, making sense gets in the way'?! I think I heard it on NewsRadio. When I am angry, I can not find the words. My mind goes into staccato mode... Complete sentences become impossible.

You leave a ****ing stain.

Everybody clear the room,
watch me suck my thumb,
and as I crawl back to my womb,
slowly beat a drum.
I can only hang my head.

How dare you covet my grain?

It'll all turn out the same.
I'm inside out.
I'll gladly take a name,
if you like that kind of bout,
a loud abhorrent squeal from a dainty boar snout.

Now you're well fed.

Throw a ****ing fit in the rain,
your vigor wont last.
My eyes are ****ing slits,
and the sky is overcast.
I could keep a secret from the lights of day,
but there's a m*th*r****ing egotist bathing in the sun.
I could never talk my mouth off with nothing to say.

Like silly flapping birds
They take away in flight

On my way over i thought of all the things that disgust me
I came up with a long list but i will not read it to you
It took up many lines, many pages, a lot of ink
A lot of time, and a hell of a lot of experience, but f*** it
You are not gonna hear it, because you are on it.

Stop it

Stop being so selfish

Love? I gave you everything I've got,
I left none for me,
and you took everything without a second thought,
leaving none for me.

Care? Who said I didn't care?
Who was boiling with anger
when you were not there?
Alas, none of this matter...

Freedom? Baby, I don't know what to say,
you come and go through the door, not even a 'hey'!
I just cried silently inside, my hearts could only pray.
No more! As my heart and brain have only one word: SLAY!

Peace?! There is no 'PEACE' left, can't you tell?
You created this beast, I'm you're Nightmare!

Not sure if it's angry, but I was angry when i wrote it.

Colonized

In a bed of thorns I lay each night
forever in eternal solitude's fight,
alone in the very shadows I've cast,
surrounded by the very walls I've raised.

To suffer in a room devoid of an
audience that gives cheer or praise
it is akin to suffering needlessly.
For who will ever hear of it.

The worlds cruelty arrests my eyes,
A gift of sight that would leave me blind.
In death I fear it will all be left undone
and the roads we've mapped left overrun

In the depths their minds are still fermenting
like so many dark jungles rich and ripe
with promise to be charted and pocked
with the scars of some vile colonization.

The civil conquerors will come again
to steal away with the treasure you keep within.
Of all creations that we have brought to life
There's nothing as vile as this merciless time.


This is wonderful! Great imagery and metaphor!

(I've posted this under 'Personal Poems', but thought it was apt here as well. Breathe in as deeply as a free-diver... then begin.)

THE RANT!

I stand in the street as the world whips around
And a phalanx of faces that stare at the ground
All flash past without even so much as a glance
Too wrapped up with themselves in a fearful trance

And theyíre only concerned about how they appear
Just as long as theyíre busy theyíll be in the clear
From the voices that question the reason they live
So theyíll keep taking more from the world than they give.

But if Iím here that means that Iím part of the game
And I wonder how many are thinking the same
And how many enjoy being part of the race
And if anyone feels that we live at pace

And a speed that seems totally out of control
And if given the chance would they just stop it all
Because I would. I mean it, Iíve just had enough
Of being bombarded with rubbish and stuff

That we donít really want and we really donít need
And are made in a death-house by angels that bleed
And whose childhoods are stolen from under their feet
Just to feed the fat businessmanís need to compete

And the fat-headed couples whose fat-headed kids
Will ensure that we live in a world that forbids
All intelligence, beauty and people who care
About life on this planet, the water, the air

We all breathe, as the temperatureís starting to rise
And the sea-levels too, but whoís bothered who dies?
And the newspaper headlines are full of the lies
Of the climate change sceptic who pockets the prize

From the fat-headed businessmanís fat-headed mate
Who is sucking the blood from the earth just to make
A quick profit from people who donít have a choice
As the capitalist gags the alternative voice.

But if Iím here that means that Iím part of the game
And the car that Iím driving pollutes just the same
And the petrol Iím buying is funding a war
That was started by governments flouting the law

And inventing a spurious case for attack
Carried out against countries that cannot fight back
Which is spawning the next generation of hate
Whoíll be blowing up buses for martyrdomís sake

But as long as thereís burgers and fries and fast cars
And pictures of girls in bikinis and bras
And vacuous vapid celebrity stars
And bone-crushing morons to prop up the bars
Then thereís no chance weíll ever see anything change:
The asylum will still be run by the deranged.

In a world that seems totally out of control
If youíre given the chance would you just stop it all?
Because I would.

Last verse fell out of scheme.

he has left a hole where my heart was
he has left a bruise that will never heal
now i struggle forsaken
to make those bruises real

i want to choke away the anger
i want my soul to feel the pain
dont give me any mercy
i would due onto you the same

he has left only a sense of maddening
he has left only a sense of despair
but i rather this cruel numbness-
then to be left broken beyond repair

i want to feel a sense of danger
i want my will to be crippled lame
dont stop when i cry out
no tears will make this heart tame

i have no emotion outside these passions
no more love when speaking his name
and soon, these brutal re-enactments
will desensitize to be made plain

There is no gentle caress to free me
The last whim of it has thus died
i rather these eternal abuses
than once, love proven to be a lie

and my intent is not to hurt you
for my vengeance is only to see
the anger in someone else's eyes
the anger that lies inside of me
