poeticallyundead:

Speak not
of times gone by
when you and I
were lost and alone

Speak instead
of present days
how we found
perfection in each other

Speak also
of days to come
when you and I
are finally one

Speak to me
lover of mine
and I’ll follow you
to the end of time

Submission! And I quote, “One of the editors of the poetry tag thinks this is poetry.”

theanacronyst-deactivated201207 asked: So, what are your credentials? Where are your masterpieces of literary design? Perhaps you just sit here trashing others writing to compensate for your inadequacies. Your views on poetry and writing in general are very narrow-minded, to even attack someones rhyme scheme in any of your posts is completely ridiculous. It is a sad person that spends his/her days searching for things to insult.

This entire message was just……….horrendously wrong. But I’ll pick it apart, because I’m in the mood.

  • I have never claimed that I am a fantastic poet. I have never even claimed I am much more than a sub par one. I do, however, have a poetry blog; you can check it out at whilescribblingmypoetry.tumblr.com. Please feel free to criticize it however you wish. Either way, whether or not a person can write has no reflection on their knowledge of what is good writing and what is shitty writing. I don’t quite understand the logic behind that. That’s like saying a person who isn’t good at composing music cannot identify a good composition over a bad one. What if said person was well learned in music and music theory, just couldn’t write compositions themselves? Would you question him/her? Would you claim his/her opinion was invalid simply because he/she couldn’t pull inspiration to write a musical composition themselves?
  • I’m not at all narrow-minded, and I don’t quite know where you got that notion from. Perhaps you’re simply offended that I reblogged one of your poems and thus were fully prepared to spew out whatever angry words your fingers decided to type, regardless of merit? You do not see the poems I don’t reblog; you only see the ones I do. I let far too many slide that I’m fairly sure others would not. I understand that certain types of imagery and certain literary features that I may not be partial to still do have artistic value. I have a fairly wide view of poetry and what constitutes as ‘art’, perhaps too wide, when it comes down to it. I’m fairly open about seeing the ‘art’ in the poetry on here. I only choose the worst to reblog. I am the farthest thing from narrow-minded when it comes to poetry. 
  • Rhyme scheme is probably the most valid reason to criticize a poem. Obviously free verse poems are more than acceptable, as are poems in which some lines rhyme and other lines don’t. However, if a person is clearly attempting to execute a rhyme scheme, said rhyme scheme should be executed effectively. If I cared to mention rhyme scheme in the reblog, then it was not.
  • I would be happy to critique the poem of yours I reblogged if you’d like that.
  • Thanks for your opinion! Come again!

Got issues? Let’s fuck them away.

cafeofthedamned:

you have no idea how badly i want
to throw you on the bed and get buried in you,
i want to feel your body, i want to make it mine,
i want to make you feel like it’s near the end of time,
make you feel so good that it just might kill you,
the world might be ending, but you won’t have a clue.

because today i find that what comes to mind
is fucking you senseless for the rest of time
you won’t have no complaints so don’t even start,
cause i’ll repeat my mantra, “i want to tear you apart.”

and it don’t even matter what’s your gender
woman, man, trans, whatever, i simply couldn’t care less,
i just want to watch you undress and tear into your flesh,
just caress every little bit of your pretty canvas,
as soft as i can,
and amuse myself in the peaks and valleys and open lands
and reach for the wells deep inside you,
bring it out to make you feel like a million fucking dollars,
like you’re worth your weight in as much heroin,
that you relieve my pain by indulging in sin,
and the longer we go, the more we will win,

because today i find that what comes to mind
is fucking you senseless for the rest of time
you won’t have no complaints so don’t even start,
cause i’ll repeat my mantra, “i want to tear you apart.”

Jesus christ what do I even say to this

Everything from the apparent “rhyme scheme” to the subject matter to

yeah

just

everything

I hear your silence

klairkia:

Your silence speaks to my heart…

hurts from the pierce it caused

no object could do to my heart what your silence brought to life

do you hear it breaking?

shattered in pieces, from the words unsaid

fallacies of dreams had in my bed

the pain of it all

is your lack of concern for my downfall

from your pedistool that you placed it upon

like a swift swipe of the table cloth from the magician

you don’t even notice the crime you have committed

no harm no foul, the way you live your life

free from the woes of another’s strife

nothing said, says it all

but in the words of Usher:

“you don’t have to call…”

I will be alright tonight…

but the ringing of quiet

is my ultimate plight…

An Usher quote

really

an Usher quote

Maybe It’s Me

memoirsofamusician:

Maybe I don’t know how to love anymore

Maybe I need someone to teach me

Maybe I’ve messed up too many times to find hope

Maybe there’s hope in your eyes

But maybe this isn’t about you anymore

Maybe this is about me; who I was, who I am, who I will be

Maybe I don’t need you anymore

Maybe you never even complimented me, I just thought you did

And everybody except me knew that I’ve always been better without you

Maybe I’m getting smarter, braver, and more independent

Maybe this is how it should be

My life, about me

Suspicion is a nasty thing.

Paranoia is even worse.

Not knowing 

true intentions.

Never knowing

true intentions.

Sometimes even if it’s

your own intentions.

I wish that I could know

if you really mean it.

Lies are easy.

Too easy.

Truth, the truth is hard.

The truth burns

hurts

like looking straight into the sun

on a cloudless day. 

But we never really know for sure, do we?

We will never know if we are truly looking at the sun

or if maybe there’s a small cloud in the way

blocking some of the blast.

Her Kind of Man.

theanacronyst:

Her kind of man,

doesn’t raise his voice.

Her kind of man,

is always assertive.

Her kind of man,

knows what he wants.

Her kind of man,

won’t take no for an answer.

No,

He doesn’t raise his voice,

he raises his fist.

He is always assertive,

its his way, or none.

He knows what he wants,

and its not always her,

but when it is,

He doesn’t take no for an answer,

is it Rape, when there’s love?

Rape comes in many forms.

Unconditional L-O-V-E

mrandersonjr:

I’m so close…
It’s becoming clear…
No longer a long shot… Or
A penny in a wishing well..
A writing of a fairy tale

BUT A REALITY <3

No longer a doubt..
A missing part of me.. Or
A desire to be who I really am, but can’t be
Not just a dream
Nor a deep desire

I’VE SEEN MY ANGEL, MY SAVIOR, MY UNCONDITIONAL, “LOVE-E”

Now I’ve touched you..
Embraced your warmth..
Taken your heart out of remission..
and given it that “fresh” start it’s desired..
“LOVE”

With every passing second…
Every text, long or short..
Knowing your fears and with LOVE, helping you overcome them…
You’ve inspired me..
Connected to me..
Starting to become ONE with me
It’s clear now & I can have it all with you..
That all being,

Unconditional Love

God

neverwannasay:

When I was little.

i was the ugly one,

the weird one,

the quiet one,

the angry one,

the short one,

the ginger one,

the one who would never find love.

but now im the beautiful one,

the smart one,

the sexy one,

the one with everything i ever wanted.

people think im lucky,

but i know i worked for it,

i have the marks,

i have the scars,

i have the memorys,

and the stress marks.

so ill happily listen to your appraisal because i know i worked hard.

so you can call me what you want but i worked hard to be who i am,

and i will congratulate you when you do it too.

What a great way to start today’s round of shitty poetry!

Anonymous asked: i'd like to see you write something dumb bitch

whilescribblingmypoetry.tumblr.com

My poetry blog. Have at it.

Though, you know, I’m fairly sure whether or not a person can write has nothing to do with his/her opinions on others’ writing. Sigh. Nevertheless, have at it.
