Open Mic: Share Your Poems and Lyrics
4esh4oot
We drink, we smoke and we pop pills at our convenience because its all we have to do,
an excuse thrown upon other excuses
to alleviate the truth.
the truth it seems forgotten along with subtlety and discourse.
Can't enjoy a night out sober
without feeling some remorse.

Uncomfortable in our own skin, the words to all seem fumbled,
the tongues we speak are
foreign in the morning as theyre mumbled.
And foot shake, hand tapping, all create a beat,
the beat of indecision, anxiety and grief.
At the death, the loss of confidence, the loss of our own words,
just sipping on the poets brew of solitary curds.

Are we happy, who knows, its all about getting royally fucked up,
last night was so amazing, all the memories thrown up
upon the pavement outside the front door like an artist with his brush,
we puke upon our possessions, the ideals that we crush.
We grow up naive and plane, and a little misunderstood,
we don't mean to be a bother, we just need a little love.

Er...Yeah. Newbie here. *Waves* I've been writing bad teen angst drivel songs and poetry for a while, and I thought I'd post some of my works here to see what other people thought of them. I know I have a LOT of room for improvement, so if you want to leave constructive criticism, please do! And, er, enjoy?

new here. i love reading lyrics and poems, and although i'm not very good at writing them, i'll post some and see what you guys think.


the light from the window
was harsh and gray
and the raindrops on the glass
knew what i wanted to say
they wanted me to beg
for someone to hold me,and as
my face became like the windowpane
i waited for the day
i could ask the questions
because i will never be the same

today i'll be crying
today i feel like dying
but i'm waiting for a better day
and tomorrow, i'll pull the knife
out of my chest
and begin to heal
just waiting for a better day
a better day...

and don't you realize
you had me all along?
and don't you realize
i never wanted to hang up that phone.
and don't you realize
you were the one who
made all my days
better days?


comment with whatever you'd like. praise, constructive criticism...bashing--whatever you want.

Well, I just joined up here a day or two ago, cause I love to write poetry and such, and I'm interested in seeing what others write. This is the first poem I ever wrote basically:

Apocalypse

Rain drops from the sky
Like bombs from a plane
Cities are destroyed
People scream in pain
The skies roar with the sound
Of ten thousand volts of light
Armies on the hills
To start the final fight
The horsemen come down from the heavens
To destroy all that remains
The Creator saves the just
And brings the wicked pain
The pure watch down from Heaven
As the Earth erupts in
A final clataclysmic eruption
Rips the Earth apart
Soon there is nothing left
But debris in a void
So make your decisions wise
And also make them true
Because one of those wicked
Just might turn out to be you

Comment as you see fit, I would appreciate feedback.

Too many questions
Not enough answers
Hey little Head
Meet Mr. Wall
Someday I'll figure it all out?

Not something that I'm proud of really, just the only thing I've written in a long time

Hi, I'm new here! I joined a while back but haven't had time to post anything. I also don't write often though, only when I feel it. Anyway, I was going through my journal looking for a different poem but I came across this one, so I'm posting it instead. Hope you like it?! Either way, wha'ev.

"Promethea" (4/25/05)

Am I to forever be
chained to this rock?
So far
in my experience
'tis the way it seems.
Chained to this rock
most of
my 20 years. My whole existence!
Its been forever for me.
For reasons beyond my understanding.
"What goes around comes around."
"You only get what you give."
All that has come around
were the chains with which I am bound.
Is this what it gotten
for passing good around?!
An eternal pecking
from the birds of hardship and suffering?
Just when I think it ends
it only seems to begin again.
Day in and day out.
In day and out day.
Day and day,
In out they,
peck out my insides then perch
on my head
leaving the filth of fear,
uncertainty, and worry
which have seeped into my brain
and further progressed my insanity.
And it feels as though no one
understands.
Because despite their encouraging words,
my figment of reality remains
alone.

Ready to Listen
(Thurs. April 28, 2005)

The words I speak
Seem to fall on deaf ears
And as a tear slides down my cheek
I know that it hasn’t been in vain
Therefore, I feel no shame
Give me the ability to
Bring close a few

(ch)
If they’re not ready to listen
I’ll wait my turn
And then slowly start again
But if they’re not ready to listen
I’ll wait patiently
Till they are

I need to know if this is right
‘Cause I walk by faith, not sight
Life only lasts for so long
So I say live it, live it well
I need guidance to get me thru
Maybe one life will turn new
And bring close a few

(ch)

Please don’t listen to the words I say
But the one who speaks thru me, I pray
Maybe one day you’ll see
Maybe one day you won’t
I know I’ve learned along the way
If you aren’t ready to listen
I’ll wait for if your when you are
If or when you are

The L word...
By: Sally Siragusa aka ME!!!

hey i dont think anyone know's this
this is my deepest darkest secret
its written in all my diarys
it haunts me in everyone of my dreams
some people think its not what it seems

i keep telling myself
i keep telling myself im not afraid
but when you move closer it makes me go insane


Don't touch me i'm afraid of your warmth
don't kiss me it will bring a storm
don't hold me or you'll have to pry me away from you
don't cry baby it will make me blue
you want me but you deserve so much more
cuz baby i'm afraid of the l word
yah i'm afraid of the l word

he moves a little bit closer makes me squirm
as people pull off the walls and start dancing to the tempo
he tells me he loves me how can i be sure how do i know my face suddenly turns as white as snow

i keep telling myself
i keep telling myself im not afraid
then the beat changed


Don't touch me i'm afraid of your warmth
don't kiss me it will bring a storm
don't hold me or you'll have to pry me away from you
don't cry baby it will make me blue
you want me but you deserve so much more
cuz baby i'm afraid of the l word
yah i'm afraid of the l word

so no you know
you dont kiss me
you dont touch me
you dont hold me
you don't hug me
and i miss it so

please touch me
i crave for the warm
yes kiss me and ill dance in the storm
come hold me you never have to let go
if you cry baby please dont cry for long
i hope you still want me i hope you still care
cuz "i love you" will soon be here
Yah i love you will soon be here




please comment on what u reely think!!!

You x6
(written Saturday January 29, 2005)

I see, I see, I see
That you guys are together
I see
That I’m not invited
I hear
When you snap at me
When I was only
Trying to be nice
I see, I see, I see

But I’m done
You all say to put
Each other first
But I’m done
And now I’m lookin’ out
For me, me, me

I see
That everyone has a best friend
But me
I hear
The stories you share with each other
And not me
Yes, I’m jealous of that
Yes, I hate you for that

Because you all say we should
Put each other first
But I’m done
Done with you and you and you and you and you and you
Because it’s always been only me
