I COULD WRITE...

1 quote 4 that!

'Be Yourself'

I could write the many things i wish to say,

Here, now, just to enchant ur mind

And then, to delet all i wrote, in the next day,

Just to show you that was nothing written yesterday,

And u was blind...

I could write the many things i like to do,

In quick phrases, to satisfy ur curiousity, today,

But later, i will erase all the words i wrote you,

And all u'll see will be a clear background, grey...

I could write a lot of words, describing myself,

Just to show how interesting person i can be,

But right after that i won't say anything,

And i will leave and let u solve that mistery...

I could write u a collection of books with my life,

Just to show the beauty of Life,

But right after that, i will burn those books,

Cos the complex words are nothing to me,

But only the simplest ones,

Full of truth, cold as ice,

Will be those musical tones,

That i always wish to hear,

So, then, these ones are written but not deleted;

These truths, now, were stated.

I STILL THINK OF YOU, JOY MARIE..

I still think of you, my dearest one from all my Friends, Joy Marie,

A live remembrance of a woman loved, from my past,

Wide alike sky, deep alike sea,

Filling my eyes with its light...

May the years change around us, and one day, being old,

To remember the honest words, in our letters, told,

We'll be somewhere on a bench, smiling,

Hearing the wind's calling..

Alike a flute sound, the leafs in their hum, make noise,

Falling slowly, slowly, down...

It wasnt their choice,

To be there, on the ground;

Was the nature's way and law

Who brought in the autumne's rainy clouds,

The 7 colors of rainbow

And the rain stoped those days..

I will still remember u, my dear Friend, Joy Marie,

As with the same eyes to look at u,

Wishing, curious alike a baby, to see,

If the prayer to our Lord, for u,

Brought happiness and peace,

In ur life..

I still think of you, Joy Marie,

Alike in past, day by day,

Wishing to be near you,

To hold you,

To whisper these words:

'I love you, Joy Marie, my dearest Friend,

I wish to be with you, as much you do'...

I will be on a bench, when, old, watching the sky,

Remembering my past, i will smile,

I will find again the happiness,

Before i die..

Meanwhile,

I will live my life as it is...

So wonderfull is the life when u love! ! !

I reach to sigh, looking to the sky above,

Thinking when will be that moment when i'll close my eyes..

I will see then, a Friend from my past, happy;

I will know then that my prayers were listened

And once again, i will smile...

I will join a new life, there, near my beloved waterfall...

Then, looking at the water, i will whisper a call;

The same flute sound,

Looking beyound, i will know something:

Peace that was found,

Again, from nothing...

But i will still think of you, Joy Marie...

[ROMANIAN VERSION]

Inca ma gandesc la tine, Joy Marie...

Inca ma gandesc la tine, cea mai draga dintre toti Prietenii mei, Joy Marie,

O vie amintire a unei femei iubite, din trecutul meu,

Larg precum cerul, adanc precum marea,

Umplandu-mi ochii cu lumina sa...

Fie ca anii sa se schimbe in jurul nostru, iar intr-o zi, fiind batran,

Sa-mi amintesc cuvintele sincere, in scrisorile noastre, spuse,

Vom fi undeva, pe o banca, zambind,

Ascultand chemarea vantului...

Precum un sunet de nai, frunzele in agitatia lor, sa faca zgomot,

Cazand usor, usor, jos...

Nu a fost alegerea lor,

Sa fie acolo, pe pamant;

A fost legea si felul de-a fi a naturii

Ce a adus in norii ploiosi ai toamnei,

Cele 7 culori de curcubeu

Si ploaia s-a oprit in acele zile..

Tot imi voi aduce aminte de tine, dragra mea Prietena, Joy Marie,

Precum cu aceeasi ochi voi privi la tine,

Vrand, curios precum un prunc, sa vad,

Daca rugaciunea catre Domnul nostru, pentru tine,

A adus pace si fericire,

In viata ta...

Inca ma gandesc la tine, Joy Marie,

Precum in trecut, zi de zi,

Dorind sa fiu langa tine,

Sa te tin,

Sa-ti soptesc aceste cuvinte:

'Te iubesc, Joy Marie, draga mea Prietena,

Vreau sa fiu cu tine, precum vrei si tu'...

O sa fiu pe o banca, cand, batran, privind cerul,

Amintindu-mi trecutul meu, voi zambi,

O sa gasesc din nou fericirea,

Inainte de-a muri...

Intre timp

O sa-mi traiesc viata asa cum este...

Ce minunata este viata atunci cand iubesti! ! !

Ajung sa oftez, privind la cer, deasupra,

Cugentand la momentul cand imi voi inchide ochii...

Imi voi vedea apoi o Prietena, din trecut, fericita;

O sa stiu atunci ca rugaciunile mi-au fost ascultate

Si inca o data, voi zambi...

Voi urma o alta viata, acolo, langa cascada mea iubita...

Apoi, uitandu-ma la apa, o sa soptesc o chemare;

Acelasi sunet de nai,

Privind dincolo de el, voi sti ceva:

Pacea ce a fost gasita,

Din nou, din nimic...

Dar inca ma voi gandi la tine, Joy Marie...

THE ROSE & THE PRINCESS

Look at me

With your eyes, full of honesty

And i will turn the color of my petals in white;

Look at me

With your eyes, full of love

And i will turn the color of my petals in red;

Look at me

With your mind

And i will show you the little drops of water,

Flowing down, slowly, among my petals, white,

Look at me

With your heart

And i will show you the little sparks of fire,

Rising up, fast, among my petals, red...

Sweet hands holding me tight at her chest,

White,

The thorns, stungs her left breast

And a small dropp of blood flows,

Red,

Followed by another,

Again, and again,

Alike a spring who arised now from a mountain..

She looks at her wound and once with her eyes,

Silver,

Once with my leafs, green, alike jade,

My petals turn to red..

The little drops of blood covered my petals..

Her silver eyes let falling down, in rivers,

Of tears, a waterfall...

Hold me tight near your heart,

Princess;

Let your tears fall down, slowly,

On my petals..

Hold me close to your lips,

Princess;

Let my fragrance surround you in a silent kiss

And you'll find then soothe, kissing my petals...

Ah, may your wound provoked by my thorns

Be covered by my robe!

Dressed in white with red, you will be,

In Harmony, princess!

May the nightingale sing for u her lovelly thrills

And from your eyes, those tears,

Honest, full of love and peace,

Crystals and diamonds, may them be!

And i will turn the color of my petals in white,

When your honest eyes, will look at me;

And i will turn the color of my petals in red,

When with love, you'll hold me;

And i will show you the little drops of water,

Flowing from the spring of ur heart,

Alike from a fountain who never drains..

And i will show you the little sparks of fire,

Rising up from your eyes,

Alike the morning's star, who never dies...

[ROMANIAN VERSION]

Trandafirul si Printesa

Priveste la mine

Cu ochii tai, plini de onestitate

Si-mi voi schimba culoarea petalelor mele in alb;

Priveste la mine, plina de iubire

Si-mi voi schimba culoarea petalelor mele in rosu;

Priveste la mine

Cu mintea ta

Si-ti voi arata micile picaturi de apa,

Curgand jos, domol, printre petalele mele, albe,

Priveste la mine

Cu inima ta

Si-ti voi arata micile scantei ale focului,

Ridicandu-se sus, rapid, printre petalele mele, rosii...

Maini dragute tinandu-ma strans la pieptul ei,

Alb,

Spinii, intepara sanul ei stang

Si o picatura de sange curge,

Rosu,

Urmata de o alta,

Iar, si iar,

Precum un izvor ce rasarise din munte...

Ea se uita la rana sa si o data cu ochii ei,

Argintii,

O data cu frunzele mele, verzi, precum jadul,

Petalele mele se schimba in rosu..

Micile picaturi de sange mi-au acoperit petalele..

Ochii ei argintii au lasat sa cada jos, in siroaie,

De lacrimi, o cascada...

Tine-ma strans langa inima ta,

Printesa;

Lasa-ti lacrimile sa cada jos, usor,

Deasupra petalelor mele...

Tine-ma aproape de buzele tale,

Printesa;

Lasa-mi parfumul sa te inconjoare intr-un sarut in tacere

Si vei gasi atunci alinare, sarutandu-mi petalele...

Ah, fie ca rana provocata de spinii mei

Sa fie acoperita de mantia mea!

Imbracata in rosu si alb, vei fi,

In Armonie, printesa!

Fie ca privighetoarea sa cante pentru tine cantecele sale incantatoare

Iar din ochii tai, acele lacrimi,

Sincere, pline de dragoste si pace,

Cristale si diamante, fi-vor ele!

Si o sa-mi schimb culoarea petalelor mele in alb,

Cand ochii tai sinceri vor privi la mine;

Si o sa-mi schimb culoarea petalelor mele in rosu,

Cand cu dragoste, ma vei tine;

Si-ti voi arata micile picaturi de apa,

Curgand din izvorul inimii tale,

Precum o fantana ce nu seaca niciodata..

Si-ti voi arata micile scantei de foc,

Rasarind din ochii tai,

Precum steaua diminetii, ce niciodata nu moare...

PASSED AWAY THE YEARS...

Passed way the years...

I was little child,

Then, young,

Now...i am old...

I was a small blade of grass

Growing up on a meadow

But now, ...i must fall...

I will born again...

A new blade of grass, little,

I will rise in the same place,

Then, i must fall...

I will be then a fir

And when the time will come,

I will cheer up again someone's soul,

On Xmas, i will be there, in its home, ...

On my top it will place a star...

From my branches will make its chaplet

And i, always,

Alike a living Spirit, i will exist...

The sorrow i'll change

To someone, with happiness;

A he or a she, will reach to know,

Then, the Happiness...

Happiness of a child,

Who became over the yeas, a young;

Passed away my years,

Now, i am old...

Passed away the years when i was playing in the sand,

There, near my beloved sea;

I had a castle, wonderfull, who...in time,

Price of a second, it was,

In the next one, vanishing,

Swallowed, into sea's water...

'Why you build castle near sea's water, child?

Its waves will took ur castle away, u know that well enough! '

'Oh, yeah...i know, but don't forget something:

The sand appertains to the sea...

How i will take something that isn't myne? !

Who will wanna take something, who doesn't belong to it? !

Do you see well, the righteous answer, to your question? ! '

Passed away years, now

And still there i am, near sea...

I make another castle who won't last...

But the magic of that second

In which, with a smile, i will look it,

Will last...my entire life...

Last even now, when..being old,

I tell my remembrance...

I look at you, very well knowing

That you'll smile...price of a second,

In ur smile,

I would have found...

Happiness..

Oh, passwed away my years, alike the desert's sand

Cos, came the storms, moved the dunes,

The oasis full of life yet remained,

There, somewhere, secluded...

And the thirsty ones, found their peace...

They were walking through desert, straying,

Searching for a place of rest,

To defend themselves of the strong sun,

Who, from their journey, stopping them...

From time to time, they noticing the oasis,

Running to get to it...

But there, there wasn't anything..but the mirage...

Weaken there minds were! ! ...

Conclusion would have been, now:

They walked on a road of knowledge,

But only the sand's inhabitants

Know the secret of dunes...

Passed away my years...

But there remained

something...remembrance...

[ROMANIAN VERSION]

TRECUT-AU ANII...

Anii au trecut...

Eram mic copil,

Apoi tanar,

Acum, sunt batran...

Eram un fir de iarba

Crescand pe o pajiste

Acum, tre' sa cad...

Un nou fir de iarba, micut,

Voi creste in acelasi loc,

Apoi, tre' sa cad...

Voi fi apoi un brad

Iar cand timpul va veni,

Voi imbucura iar sufletul cuiva,

De Craciun, voi fi acolo, in casa sa, ...

In varful meu imi va aseza o stea...

Din ramurelele mele-si va face cununa

Iar eu, intotdeauna,

Ca Spirit viu, voi exista...

Tristetea-i voi schimba

Cuiva, cu bucurie;

Un el sau o ea, va sa stie,

Atunci, Fericirea...

Fericirea unui copil,

Devenit peste ani, un tanar;

Trecut-au anii mei,

Acum, sunt batran...

Trect-au anii cand ma jucam in nisip,

Acolo, langa iubita-mi mare;

Aveam un castel, minunat, ce...in timp,

Pret de-o secunda, era,

In urmatoarea, disparea,

Inghitit, in apele marii...

'De ce-ti faci castel langa apa marii, copile?

Valurile ti-l vor lua, stii bine! '

'Ah, da, ...stiu, dar nu uita ceva:

Nisipul, apartine marii...

Cum voi putea lua ceva ce nu-i al meu? !

Cine va putea lua ceva ce nu-i al sau? !

Deci, vezi tu, oare, un adevar, in spusele mele? !

Vezi tu oare, raspunsul drept, al intrebarii tale? ! '

Trecut-au anii, acum

Si tot acolo sunt, langa mare...

Imi fac un alt castel ce nu va dura...

Dar magia acelei secunde

In care, cu un zambet, il voi privi,

Va dura...toata viata mea...

Dureaza si acum, cand...batran fiind,

Imi spun amintirea...

Ma uit la tine, foarte bine stiind

Ca vei zambi...pret de-o secunda,

In zambetul tau...

Aflavo-mi eu...

Fericirea...

Ah, trect-au anii mei, precum nisipul desertului,

Caci venit-au furtunile, mutara dunele,

Oaza plina de viata inca ramase,

Acolo, undeva, retrasa...

Iar cei insetati, si-au gasit linistea...

Mergeau prin desert, ratacind,

Cautand sa se odihneasca,

Sa se apere de soarele puternic,

Ce din drum ii oprea...

Din cand in cand, observau oaza,

Alergau..sa ajunga la ea.....

Dar acolo, nu era nimic...decat mirajul...

Slabita le mai era mintea! ! !

Concluzia ar fi fost, acum:

Mersera ei pe drumul cunoasterii,

Dar numai locuitorii nisipurilor

Cunosc secretele dunelor...

Trecut-au anii mei...

Ramase ceva...amintirea...

THE MORNING AFTER

Around, silence..

In silence, a shadow..

The shadow, a woman,

She stays there, on a bench, crying..

A lack of confidence..

Confidence lost..cos there, in the meadow,

Finds a peace, her man;

He is there, in her arms, slowly, slowly, dying...

Destiny..

Sometimes, has its own actions..

Irreversible situations,

Alike when now, one is healthy

And then..sudden..dies..

But his woman, stays there, near her man,

Remembers the beautifull moments before they were gone

And..cries...

She remembers that one day before

He was smiling back to her so full of life!

But now, the merry moments are no more..

Sudden, in a morning after, gone, because of a strife...

A strife seen in a casual death chain

Cos her man

Struggles to live..

He has no will, to leave..

'I wish to lie down on the grass, my wife'

He whispers, slowly, bearly breathing

And the teary eyes of his woman,

Looks at him, alike begging to remain alive..

She drags him off the bench, there, on the grass,

Holds him dearly in her arms,

And her silky hair covers his face,

Alike the night covers the stars..

She close her eyes wishing again to feel

the other soul,

To give it life,

To split her life..

'Stay with me..

Do not leave me..'

She says him, among tears, flowing in a river

And her body, shiver,

When pressing her lips

In a silent life-kiss,

Of a morning after...

He's breathing normal now;

The heart-attack stopped;

The supply of blood and oxygen to an area of heart muscle is un-blocked,

And lives..

All because of God's will

To make happy a loving wife,

Changing hand of fate,

In a morning after...

@Th3Mirr0r

[ROMANIAN VERSION]

DIMINEATA DE DUPA

Imprejur, liniste..

In liniste, o umbra..

Umbra, o femeie,

Ea sta acolo, pe o banca, plangand..

O lipsa a increderii..

Incredere pierduta..caci acolo, pe pajiste,

Isi gaseste o pace, barbatul ei;

El e acolo, in bratele ei, incet, incet, murind...

Destin..

Uneori, are propriile-i sale actiuni..

Situatii ireversibile,

Precum acum, cand cineva e sanatos

Iar apoi..deodata..moare..

Dar femeia sa, sta acolo, langa barbatul ei,

Isi aminteste momentele frumoase inainte ca ele sa dispara

Si..plange...

Ea-si aminteste ca in urma cu o zi

El ii returna zambetul asa de plin de viata!

Dar acum, momentele vesele nu mai sunt..

Deodata, intr-o dimineata de dupa, disparute, din cauza unui conflict...

Un conflict vazut intr-un lant intamplator al mortii

Caci barbatul ei

Se chinuie sa traiasca..

El nu are nici o vointa, sa plece..

'Doresc sa ma intind jos pe iarba, sotia mea'

Sopteste el, incet, abia respirand

Iar ochii inlacrimati ai femeii sale,

Privesc catre el, ca si cum ar implora sa

ramana in viata..

Ea-l trage jos de pe banca, acolo, pe iarba,

Il tine dragostos in brate,

Iar parul ei matasos ii acopera fata,

Precum noaptea acopera stelele..

Ea-si inchide ochii vrand din nou sa simta

celalalt suflet,

Sa-i dea viata,

Sa-mi imparta viata proprie..

'Stai cu mine..

Nu ma parasi..'

Ii spune ea, printre lacrimi, curgand intr-un rau,

Iar corpul, ii tremura,

Cand isi apasa buzele sale

Intr-un tacut sarut al vietii,

Al unei dimineti de dupa...

El respira normal acum;

Atacul de inima s-a oprit;

Cantitatea de sange si oxigen dintr-o zona

a unui muschi al inimii este deblocata,

Iar el, traieste..

Toate acestea datorita vointei lui Dumnezeu

De a face fericita o sotie iubitoare,

Schimband mana destinului,

Intr-o dimineata de dupa...

Limerick:

There once was a fat crocodile

Watched films like a great cineophile

The first one he saw

Did leave him in awe

But Twilight left his throat full of bile

...except "Twilight" is 2 syllables instead of 1. Oh well. Needs work I guess.

Thinking of Life

As I close my eyes I see many things

Some are nice but many frighten me

Horrifying faces revealed to be dead beings

But I also see creatures of marvelous beauty

A raging war is being fought inside my heart

A battle between fire and water,between darkness and light

In one word it can be described as art

Because victory can only be obtained with might

I hold tightly in my hand the meaning of my life

It's a frail creature i can easily kill

But i don't do that,that is not my will

I let it go but in my other hand i still hold a knife

By Sorin T.

Well here it is

:) ....i know i am still far,far away from being a writer :)),but i want to hear your opinions

I was asked to write a Villanelle for Writing Skills class recently.

A Villanelle has a rhyme scheme of

Hidden Content:

A1

B

A2

A

B

A1

A

B

A2

A

B

A1

A

B

A2

A

B

A1

A2

(A1 and A2 are copied exactly to wherever they are put)

So, here is (roughly, from memory) what I wrote:

How sweet is the night?

A darkness so immense,

Let it stay, if you might.

Two men end their fight

Concluding a minor disturbance

How sweet is the night?

A bird swirls mid flight

Landing to decorate a nearby iron fence

Let it stay, if you might.

The world renewed in lack of light

In an air cold and dense

How sweet is the night?

Some say things are sad when they aren't bright

But the night disproves this in its true joyful brilliance

Let it stay, if you might.

The world needs it, alright.

At the end of every day it is made less tense.

How sweet is the night?

Let it stay, if you might.

To be honest, I am both proud of what I wrote but dislike it at the same time. I want to break the rules of the poems structure, as I feel like it could be improved that way.

Anyways, I feel like you all enjoy challenges (yes, these are quite challenging to write - trust me) so I decided to share. Write your own before critiquing anyone.

The hardest part of ending is starting again.

I like it. Keep up the good work.

As for the rules and structure of poetry...

"Poetry without rules is like a tennis match without a net." - Robert Frost

...and he would know! ;)

Keep the structure. Expirement with different structures. Create your own. But, don't ever lose them.

Here is a good resource for poets: http://www.rhymezone.com just type in a word and it will search for all words that rhyme with it. I've written MANY a poem using that site.

I wish I had my old English class. Robert Frost was one of my favorite poets, second to Emily Dickinson. Haven't read any of his poems in over a year, though.

Edit: whoops, sorry EER. I read Bolt's post first, just saw yours...
