Poem Giveaway

Postby Armorath » June 27th, 2012, 12:55:02 am

So, I had this crazy idea, that I might actually be okay at writing poems, (Crazy, right?) and so I thought, "Huh, why not show off my talent by giving free poems away?" That's how this started! So, basically you give me a topic of some sort of sort, and then I write the poem for you. Also I usually find the dark side in most topics (Unless it's something like dandelions or pansies or something along those lines) so if you want to see if you want the happy side of something, then also mention that. Otherwise it's most likely going to be sad and depressing. Anyway, I'm going to put an example or two under a spoiler in case you want to see how good (or awful) I am at writing poems, and if you even want me to write you one.



((This one came from the top of my head, so don't blame me if it's terrible))


So I will usually make it rhyme, but if you don't want it too, mention that as well.

Waiting List
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.

I doubt I will have that many people waiting, but I like the number seven, so that's what I shall put. We are open?

Updates


6/29- So, my idea that I'm a good poetic person failed miserably (As I expected) so basically what I do, is I post random poems that you, the viewer, can use if you give me credit. Even though I know no one will ever look at this, I would just like to post poems anyway.

7/3- I updated my second example poem. Actually, I completely changed it, because I didn't like the old poem that I had created.

Thorns in Life

I keep landing on the thorns in life.
How unlucky can I get?
Every road leads to failure
Will I never get my rest?

I keep hitting rock bottom.
Instead of winning I lose.
I'm failing miserably in my own life,
And there's nothing I can do.

I keep saying the wrong things,
As try to talk to you.
But nothing comes out right,
So I'm left alone all blue.

I keep falling down.
I fail at everything I do.
After all, the one thing I need
Which I fail to win over is you.

Whoah! I was looking at my post when I saw that someone had posted here and I thought, "Wait a second, did someone actually post in my topic?" Thanks! I'm not sure if you actually like it ((Because personally, I think it's horrifying)) but thanks for posting anyway!

Someone

Just one person who recognizes me.
Someone who can make me feel free.
Don't need to change who I will be.
A real life person who I can see.

Who sees what's hidden deep inside.
Someone with whom I can confide.
No secrets hidden between them and I.
Where staying here is harder when we can fly.

But no one's here to say goodbye.
Happiness is none but a lie.
There's no reason left to try.
As my last breath goes out in sigh.
Yum! I LIKE MANGOS.

Dear my freind Armorath. I changed my name from wolfbloodedgurl to PhantomWolf, but i actually like your poems, they may not be the best in the world, but they got my attention, and most of them i felt could keep it. Sure they're different from your everyday run of the mill poems, but hey! thats what we need to liven up this world!So i think you should continue this!

I must say, I really like "If You Find the Place..." The others are quite sad and depressing, as you mentioned above. They're very good, I'm just not a sad and depressing kind of person most days. Some good prompts you could use include picking a color, feeling, or idea, and writing on that. One thing my teacher had us do to write poems was that she found a bunch of old calendars, some with landscapes, others with just artistic photography, and had us write poems based on the ideas we got from the picture. The picture method is actually quite effective, although getting stuck with a picture of cacti wasn't particularly inspiring. Also, my dad's friend created a site called typetrigger.com that gives a prompt every six hours. You can write something on there and have it read by other writers, and you could certainly post your resulting work here or expand on it past the word limit they have.
