View Full Version : Spend **5 MINUTES** to Write a Poem RIGHT NOW

Found this idea from another forum, thought it'd be fun. :p

You only get 5 minutes to write your poem (so set a timer if you must!) - no editing once the 5 minutes are up. (yes you may use less than 5 minutes)

Just go with your thoughts, go with the flow, write whatever....

**I'll start:**

In the midst of boredom
my thoughts ruminate
racing with ideas not-so-grand
cycling circling crippling chaos

emotions untethered
taking flight
grappling tight
in the midst of my mind
they have their own mind.

Now go! Your turn! :)

"not only the wind dances over prairies"
she'd heard it all her life
but never understood
today, it hit her
as she ran through the tall grass
arms out
wind blowing her curls all around her face
she knew
it was true
she had joined the wind
in it's everlasting dance
hand in hand they flew
and she was finally content

stop
there's still time
to stand before the line
hold on to your arrow
lest you quiver and strike
pride thrown away
for a soul saved
saved for a soul enraged
for integrity's sake

dreadful faces gleam
in the dreary dawn
staring spitefully
into your soulless black eyes

deranged,
untame
they strangle,
you strain
the faces remain with all eyes in gaze.

with fierceful force
you shake with shame
loss of control
they shall reign

black, jet, soulless eyes
stare at the faces they despise

Okay...went for more like 10+ minutes [BELLA BROKE THE RULES!]

grasping, aching, panging
for the gain
you clutch the wind
you strain

empty-handed
burned dry
another attempt
to fill your veins
empty veins
blood drained veins
forever hungering
not a drop attained

slowly dying
of empty drying
you grasp til death
with all your breath
with the crippled veins that
you are left

reaching out - reaching forth
your fingers crumble
until no more

vain smiles maliciously
at your foolish failure
once again a human slaved

reined in and fully tethered

captured ; enchained
by their own ignorant endeavor

led down the false lane
brilliantly by the works of vain
feigning glory
vain will proclaim
offering great inventory
until the dumb soul is relentlessly slain

slain by their need for shallow gain
this is the work of vain.

Thank you for this, Bella. I guess this is how I'm feeling right now - or how I always feel around other people.

When I woke up there was still a car
outside my locked, bolted window,
not speeding, not revving, but on,
headlights shooting through
the tear in the Venetian blinds
toward the door at the room's other side
filling with terrible sun the keyhole
for which I had lost the metal.
I wondered if she could see me wondering
whether below her gorgeous, repulsive hood
there might be some small car or person
small like me or shiny like her
illuminating the peculiar interlockings
of, you know, her carburetor or whatever.

i'm bored
i have to pee
the rain isn't helping
must hold for 4 more
minutes ever ticking
now that I've paid attention
it's getting hard to hold there's tension
my pants are tighter
i'm crouched right over
3 minutes
i can make it
take deep breathes come on
write it write it
why did I drink so much water
why did I not notice my predicament sooner
i wish i had a catheter
so I would not need to worry about this
but those are uncomfortable
and wouldn't want to leak
not to mention they're not really appealing
about a minute
I CAN MAKE IT
i am ready to jump
and rush to the bucket
i need relief
timer pleaseee
go off before
I can no longer plea
8
my fate is safe
rushing before I urinate

Underneath a neon sky,
electrified and fed by wires.
A zoetrope in godlike eyes,
potential waiting to be applied.

Nature crawling up, the mist beyond the reeds.
Dressed in fear imbued vanity.
The boredom waiting to be freed,
just an empty husk and a withered seed.

FREE TO SOAR

Some people live their whole lives
in the same place where they were born,
they die and are buried there as well,
like my father.

Some move just a few miles away,
like my mother.
Some move further away,
but are still buried where they were born,
like my sister.

My brother lives in the same place
where our father was born,
lived and died,
and he will be buried near our sister,
our parents, our grandparents,
and our great grandparents.

I won't be.

I was born there, in that small town.
I lived there for 21 years,
and then I moved away.
I've been back for the funerals and burials,
but I won't be buried there.

I want to be cremated and have my ashes scattered
someplace I've never been before,
never lived before,
where I didn't die.

My spirit will be free to soar.
My ashes will be free to soar as well.

May be cheating cuz I read the premise and my mind went before I could get to my comp--was browsing on my phone--but anyway:

Breathless heart and mind a-racing
What to write cuz times a-wasting
Rhymes feel useless but keep on track
They keep the thoughts from dragging back
Fixing, fixing, changing tune
Expanding ideas but they feel abused
Arc and themes are more in tune
They make me feel like I have some use

Every night
you bright up my secret place
but now I wonder why
you had to leave me

why did it have to end so soon
you burnt out and left me
stranded in the dark
when you promised a 1000 years of shining

tell me
did I press you too hard?
were you already on your last spark?

when I thought
your light was there to shine
your guidance by perfect illumination
to never let me wonder blind....

My forum buddies get me through,
they gave me love when I was blue.
I sought advice and their perspective,
They welcomed me humbly, they were most receptive.

They've felt the feelings that I feel,
they see my words as being real.
They listen when I need an ear,
I return the favour when I'm here.

I cannot thank you guys enough,
sometimes life's smooth and sometimes it's rough.
But the forum family keeps me strong,
It is the place that I belong.

I learn the details that I might miss,
I jump and clap and cry and kiss.
I hug and thank and offer advice.
Sometimes it's blunt, sometimes it's nice.

So to all that share the meandering journey
feel camaraderie, embrace dicernery
You have a gift, welcome or not.
We give in spite of what we got.


We've come together, in this place.
No need for rules, the mods embrace.
Bring your rhyme and bring your tears,
bare your soul, divulge your fears.

Strive to smile, maintain your light.
Give that spark, sustain our fight.
Brothers and sisters we are a force,
were tangential, gentles, let's map a course.

not used to getting a handle on my thoughts in this space of time, so i can only manage these sort of 'snapshots'. --

Out of the ashes rises life,
Bend bone and sinew to the fight,
Dressed in an echo of militaristic ambition
Crafting monument of your mind's elation.

Stepping out of stride: a song from a gestalt of eyes,
Ripping through placidity with a few stark lines.
Waking minds that are drenched deep in life
and beckoning ghosts from another kind.

(the light stories continue - now my closet light is out too.)

oh no
why did you go?
another one - will have to go to Lowe's

You were my last shining star
shining out the closet door
My last glimpses of light
you were my perfect beam
You were the only one that scared away all fright
You left me.
And now I'm in need. :(

'Cuz at night
in the dark
it can get creepy
and I think monsters with machetes will bite me
now this is what I'm left with
dang not a thing in sight
without your perfect little light.

No one is going to be sent from above

I'm about to give up and be happy sit
enough about the sappy love I can't find
For years its just always come into mind

I'm going to accidentally offend someone today

When your world collides with mine
I hold my breath.
A flower crushed to pavement

Underneath your icy gaze
I wilt.
Choked for light my petals stretch,
but never bloom.

Taking it in,
a scent passes by.
Triggers a memory,
long left to die.
Grew a great longing,
for a distant time.
Something most special,
a moment, she was mine.

I stopped asking questions,
consumed by our bond.
A place thought forgotten,
where I just belonged.

I know nothing's constant,
and not to dwell in the past.
Like a lingering scent,
No thing is supposed to last.

The beauty and connection,
passes like light.
Some memories are magic,
To the heart they delight.

To you my lost beauty,
I remember your smell.
It reminds me of contentment,
a place I seldom dwell.

in what feels like home
Seeking solace
here, where I am known

Rhyming words

Words say nothing

It's all in vain
It's all just in my head

Our intimacy, ferocious and snarling
we collided, rolled for control
painted fire
on snow, blood
in water, lips
on
and on
without roaring victor but
bruised and panting,
parting,
and violet in our intensity.

Florys on the kitchen surface , can't quite settle down
Flory needs to clean the bath ,her tan just made it brown
Flory has a messy bedroom, house is far from clean
What's the hour ? hyper hour, She needs amphetamine

Sexy dexy round and white I take it with some juice
If dexy time is any later I will be letting loose
My dexy makes me slow right down my twitching it does stop
But nothing in the world can make me stop blurting f**k off

Doors, couches pillows bins they make me feel quite good
I'd like to kick them all today but don't know if I should
I've broken many things before and today won't be the last
Don't trust me round your household goods ill break them pretty fast

I love animals I love my little roo
But earlier today on my shoulder she did poo
I did try to be cross she got a quick scorn
But how could you hate the cutest animal ever born


Ok I got way too into poetry hour there

I said you were fugly
I didn't say you were ugly
I would never say that
But, I guess you can have the cat
I love you, I'll miss you
I was always true
You're the best
Why did you put me to the test?
You knew I'd fail
I promise that wasn't my mail
My roommate's boyfriends are all pen pals
And those weren't my decals
There's no room for anymore on my car
Another thing, with that car you know I can't go far
I couldn't have even traveled to that club across town
You know I would have broken down
Who is Tiffany?
Oh my gosh I just had an epiphany
I get it
That's it I'm throwing a fit
Get my helmit, I'm about to blow
Tiffany has got to go
I can't believe this, you better watch out
I didn't think we would go this route
You told me you were at the grocery store!
I guess that's why you don't carry your cellphone anymore.
"I just miss wearing my beeper" yea, right.
What? You really did get groceries?
Oh yea, you did get those rotisseries.
Hahaha, nevermind
Let's just leave this all behind.

My good sweet heart's burried deep
But it's always on my mind
Who I can't be for the ones I love
I love my family so much it hurts
I've bruised them all
There is nothing worse.
Heart breaking
Never broken
Sometimes it comes back
Pure, Strong, Undamaged
The most rare and valued times
With tears overflowing
we all miss that
And where did you go?
I can't find you
I love you and I miss you

I love my mom until I learned of her sickness
Living through suffering is a terrible thing
I'm open to many things in life

I'm tired of feeling alone with my thoughts
My world is strange burdened with edgy rocks
If peace were mine let it come
This tired old guy won't let it run

Suffering hurts more than one
Babies are cute will I have some
I cannot ******* focus on much
Give me a song and I show you clutch

I feel like I suck at this poetry thing

you beam of sunshine
you radiate with rays so bright
breaking the invisible barriers
straight from a technology source to my heart

No, straight from your heart to mine do I feel your rays

We laugh
we dance in each other's light
oh so bright a radiance
do we bring
in our great dance

two mingling energies
in perfect synergy
two lights frolicking in unity
intermingling wonder.
two mingling interminglings.

Alone I sit
pages flip
magazines, junk mail

I feel the sunset breeze
all the mundane
All the beautiful
In all it's glory is nothing compared to you.

The tear falls as crystal down my cheek,
Glistening rivers await
Travel afar and you'll see all the mystique
All that's unique
But nothing compares to the moments
Vivid, pure moments - that come with you

Your presence is better than amazing waterfalls falling in silver streams
Rush greatly with might they knock your mind with wonder
The rush of your love
Is mightier than this
Nothing equates

I can capture any glistening photo, exotic moment, rare happening -
But baby,
You're a rare happening I'm ready to capture and baby, we'll always be glistening.
And what's so beautiful - is that exotic moments rare to all but given to us - they're so very special because your life is intertwined with mine and I wouldn't want it any other way.

Kodak can't beat that.

Sitting by a lake you see,

Spawned in a crevice like a tree.
Non-stop self philosophy,
That's how I am, with add.

Sitting in a dark, dreary room,
A hunched over figure sits in agony,
Surrounded by coffee cups and dirty dishes,
Papers scattered, projects unfinished,
Books abandoned, lost and unread,
The clock strikes 2 am,
The stench of cortisol, sweat and fear are the only things that fill that room.

A brain void and numb,
Eyes heavy, red, diluted,
Heart rythmatically rushed and pounding,
Threatening to leap out of ones' chest,
Hands twitching and shaking,
Baggy sweatpants, unwashed hair,
Sweat and tears slide off a hagrid face...

It's only the first week of school,
Are you a student with ADHD too?

Oh wait, that's not a poem, that's just a reflection of my week. :(

A reflection of reflecting reflexes.

Listen. . .
Do you hear that?
It's your soul.
Nope, can't rationale that, can't make a fact
except that you don't know
a true fact about your soul.

shove away the "perfect place"
step out of your precious comfort-zone where
proofs and proven methods
prove how the world goes 'round.

Sorry fact-
your deep down inside perfect place[soul] is in a place
-and choke it up-
in a *place* where no tactile evidence of it's existence will prove it
exists.
Nothing to prove it's place.

Notice yourself
Dig deep down
You'd be surprised
Don't be afraid to find shame, guilt, worthlessness,
You're all there
Shield your eyes
But you'll miss out on what's beautiful
Your soul

Not a fact, not true and false.
Hard-logic? Please. You would prove this philosophical before even digging.

But why not try digging?
Hold my hand.
Let's dive in.

Push away the restrain.
You'll be amazed at what you see.
And I'll catch your tears when they fall.

Every glimpse I happen to meet
catch eyes with
lock souls with
it's freeing
your soul is something beautiful

beyond beautiful
Please don't try to logic it away.
Just because you can't see it.
Feel.

You've got a whole world inside.

Closing eyes.
Hugging my paper towel roll
like it was something special
atleast it comforts me.

tummy hurting. . .

and I hear a voice, "Be still."

so I drift off in this place...
no tummy hurt there
a soothing place
where I sleep
only in my mind

I escape
over yonder be another valley
that I haven't treaded upon
leaves that I haven't trampled

and in the white
the nothingness but peace
it brings
whirlwhinds of silent wind

caress my soul
tell me "everything's okay, everything's gonna be okay"

I breathe faster.
but only because I have found my breath
where there is no pain
I breathe with ease and feel all relief
in a moment's notice I'm here
and out

this place.
this place gives me life.

my dear sweet baby
I love you so much.

"Do you dream of me?"

I miss you so much.

Your soft black curls
between my fingers
watching your sweet face fall asleep
gently into a peaceful land.

I remember the log.

The misty log.
Our initial place of romance.
Well, second initial place. . .

Magic set on fire is what your kisses are when you kiss me.

It was a long hike there.
You placed your hand on my back to guide me-
You held my hand.
You caught me when I fell
and made me laugh. :)

ha ha. . .

I'll never forget those moments.
Me and you up on that hill
chilled we quivered
holding each other trembling. . .
but we held each other.
tight.

I cherish you like those moments - buried deep within my heart.

Can you believe we are together now?
We're finally each other's?

My love,
you can take me to that log any time.
that misty log.
I hope you will propose to me there.

Love set on fire.
Nothing can quench our love for it is more full than a thousand rivers
It is overflowing.

It beats all.
Your love is all I need.

Why do people

chase what's not theirs

And steal affections

As if they were theirs?

I ... Am guilty.

Why do people let their hearts get stolen

By these thieves?

All forbidden actions that are far too often

Not fully perceived with broad rotation

But . . .what if the one who got chased

had only ever before caught by feet that kick?

and stolen affections - that should be saved for the *one and only*. . . ?

But if you stole the affections of someone

Where you were their *one and only* . . .

(who ever took the chance?)

And what if the heart that was stolen

was finally given it's very first beat?

. . .if you don't take chances

You could end up watching your love walk by...

Or you could end up walking into the life of a love you would have never found

had you not crossed into the forbidden

and leaped.

She should become a poet.

Lol, thanks Tina. Not my "thing", though.

You mean, she's not??

The virus jumped out at me
I was chosen victim because it said so.

And the symptoms -
-well I have become to adore them
Enjoy them thoroughly.

So now to put this in terms
under lock-and-code
Well, unless you have deciphered.

When it struck-
Like a deep-shot jolting flash
It hit me
it spread with the tactics of a well-advanced virus
Beneath the innocent seeming-exterior it lay
the most potent thing.

Faster than neurons dendrites can notice it
Seducingly it slithers through every fine ridge, synapse, any particle of matter it encounters
it spread with the tactics of the virus
clever and advanced in it's ways
The labrnth it enwebbed
Dark-chisle embedded.
How do I stop it?

It's still spreading.
--**Faster than neurons-axis(?) can notice it--** would have also omitted this other repeated bit. Oh well.
Seducingly it slithers through every fine ridge, synapse,
- any particle of matter it encounters
it slyly leaves it's black-webbed mark.

I always try to close my eyes to it.
But it always breaks through my eyelids
Shattering bone and
injecting itself into my inner brain.

From the moment I came in contact with it
I was infected.

Now it has left a deep impecable mark
Like my DNA
it has become an almost *part* of the very map.
It's deep-black-webbed existence there implanted
-whether I welcome it or not.


But do I really want to get rid of it? (s)

Ahhhhhhhhh too much Fi-dom for me. Poetry is a double-edged sword, especially since I have mainly been writing about things personal to me *or* about me. :scratch:

Up and down
Smile and Frown
Never here
Never near

Always in transition
Always on a mission
Don't know who or why
Don't know what's a lie

A life in five
Never ending strife
5 minutes to share
A life that's hardly there

You are wanted.
no rush

I peer across the tall looming blades of grass
I see your radiant hue
shining silvers followed by deep blues and lastly some faded orange

Looming grass
the barriers
serve a purpose.

Look across the looming blades
You'll see the reciprocal -
Hues of
bright beaming orange followed by deep blues and lastly a faded silver
surround me.

They're adiating with my smile in your direction
A curous
confused
cautious
awaiting smile.
Trying to read your signs.

The divider serves it's purpose - it is needed.
the reciprocal is only by a miraculous chance
and the chance to meet again
is something that only happens if all works together.

You are wanted.

Let chance happen. (in it's time.)

Oh dear
Here we go again
My brain raking up
Crap about bananas
Bright pink farting ones
Everywhere they fart
You can smell them
For miles and miles
They haunt me at night
Never leave me alone
I just wish that
My meds worked
They would chase them away
And I'd be safe again
They'd have vanished
And I'd be okay again

[I'm sorry, I was of two minds when]

My mind, machine gunning

(blind)

ricochetted and the conversation slipped sideways

(again)

entering here, but I cannot find an exit wound, bleeding internally

(running)

out of time, out of words, out of attention, yours, mine, slipping

(away)

into harder cover, spinning head down, disengaged and disappearing,

(home)

to deeper bluer shadows where I will tremble myself

(to sleep).

Another week gone
No work done
Dreading the weekend
It's just not fun

Another week older
And I'm still deranged

Forget and forgive
It's too late
The sun will set
and sooner or later, I'm dead

World War Three

Here we go again and again
Raised voices and arguing
They dont realise it causes pain
Listening to them downstairs

Verbal missiles flying free
Just like a war zone
World War Three
Voices exploding like bombs

Is it my fault they fight
Did I cause all this
Can I ever get it right
Am I as bad as they make out

What can I do to make them happy
Do I cause more harm than good
Is it always going to be this crappy
Should I fade away to improve their life

Cant we all be together
Make the best of a bad situation
Live in peace and harmony forever
Why do families have to fight

I am supposed to be doing work
but instead I'm learning how to do the twerk
I can't dance very well
My crush was watching and I fell
The he asked me what was that smell
I had candles in my room
And when I twerk I use perfume
why does my new crush wear glasses?
Can't he wear contacts shipped by the masses?
my boyfriend thinks I'm hilarious is that ok?
I can't believe I told him he'd be marriage material someday.
I really said that wth why did I do that?
It's ok... we still chat

It's sleeping time, yet i'm a wake.
There is one pedal and it ain't brake.
To any spark of interest I will cling,
To let it out, or take it in.

Where be the quiet, calming place,
tucked in my bed? under the base?
Where be the even steady mood,
At back of fridge behind the food?

Where be that warmth that distant content,
accept I do, need I repent?
Aloof will stay me thinks sometime,
Awake for days, albeit mine.

still in my night clothes, lunch way past gone
i need to go out and get a few things done
but here i sit fidgeting feet and hands
yet again i've not followed through with my plans

I did make jelly and tidy the kitchen
but when mum gets home she will be b!tchin'
i was meant to clean and organise my bills
unfortunately music is where im getting my thrills

Hip hop and tea, drawing pictures of kiwi
suddenly bills just dont fill me with glee
id rather dance around and act a fool
and fidget my feet on this kitchen stool :0

Stop whining all the time

Sick and tired
of this random hurt
My brain is miswired
and it's full of dirt

I used to feel good
I think
and if I could
I'd go back in a blink

Mood going crazy
either high or low
in addition, I'm lazy
have been for weeks in a row

Mood low or high
but never content
still scared to die
so I'm living bent

Happiness is an illusion
why do I crave for it
it's nothing but an intrusion
in a life that's full of ****.

Tired now of rhyming
and tired of whining
Tired of being awake
who said that life was a peace of cake

obsessed with my depression
it's all I know
and in every session
I just wonder why I'm low

Don't like my poetry
if you can call it that
it's not difficult to see
that my thoughts are stuck in a rut

Have to leave soon
another go at learning more
but it's only once in a blue moon
where learning about me doesn't leave me sore

Vampires Desires

The full moon, dark night
and that look in your eyes
is something that startles
but to me is no surprise

the distant screams
echo on in the night
as another human
is taken by your bite

Those long white fangs
now dripping with blood
and your ankle deep
in deaths miry mud

walking away satiated
raising face to the sky
targeting your next victim
the next innocent to die

open to my hesitation,

I’m just another fool
Y’all standin’ in the crowd
Screamin’ to be heard
Hopin’ to make ya proud

I’m just another fool
Y’all waitin’ for my turn
Standin’ in the crowd
Y’all tryin’ to be heard

I’m just another fool
Y’all tryin’ not to search/to emerge
Forget all your thoughts
This time yo’ lesson learned

I’m not your * tool
Not trying to endure
For every second elapsed

Entirely impulsive, any swearing is entirely unexpected :D

What is the heart but a spring, asked Hobbes
Whom I hated, if you can hate that way,
For putting my position so clearly,
I, I ladder of tissues, groping blindly at the sun,
Infinity in appetite
Is all.
And economies our total description.

Yet still the cursed iambs trace
A halo round the moon.

The roar of the waves,
the surf smashing against rocks,
Wind rushing over water
Where water and sand meet
I am home.

Sun warming my wet hair
The smell of salt in the air
The pull of the current moves me to a higher place.

Hands gliding, pulling, moving me further
Anticipation growing
Feel the swell
MOVE

Peace prevails

I am the constant in chaos.
I am the center of a world spiraling out of control.
I am the power in the powerless mass.

The unfinished dreams haunt me.
Why can't I go back and change.
I want to make new choices.
but what would I give up?

Would I lose more of myself than is already gone?

Hate...
Hey mate,
I can relate,
So it ain't too late,
Hell if that ain't fate !
Damn sometimes the feeling's ain't too great,
Do you agree or need to debate ?
Cause all I can say,
Is within the darkest hour with no escape,
I ain't lookin' for the light as I desire to destroy instead of create,
But maybe today is not the day,
For you to agree with my ways,
Of seeing life as I play... ?
What do you think I cannot see what's behind that beautiful face ?
I won't forget but it might erase...
Sometimes I even doubt I might belong to a different face,
And than I check just in case,
I'm not trapped in some sort of mental maze
Evolving swirling twisting turning like some mental chase...
A rabbit's' place...
Or eternal staircase ?
Or maybe it's just a passing phase ?
Either way every day is just another game,
Of rushing haste,
Not every evolution goes with my praise...
Have you been within my mind today ?
One more thing before I'll leave...
If I may ?
...
(for you to fill in this empty space... ;))

I don't mind the snow so much, a little shoveling is okay.
But when the barometric pressure changes, it wastes my day.

With white rage the arrow bends you
With black lust it pierces skin.
Your hand touches the water rippling
Cools the heart and desires too.
In a psychological mitosis,
Splitting skin cells
Replicating replies and irritations
Stretching the infinite chords of DNA we call hope.
Blood clots like thoughts nursing a memory
Scab wounds to pick at and scar
The memory never leaves you
Even if the arrow's dislodged from your arm.

The church up on the hill
Where Granny and Granddad used to go
Like the good people themselves
That old church is gone

The little Bible Granddad would carry
In his coat pocket to teach Sunday school
In the church where he was married
Is faded and yellowed with the years
Now it's carried with me everywhere I travel
To keep a piece of his legacy
Held in my own pocket now
Those gold-lined pages will be buried with me

A quarter-century since he died
Still the tears won't dry
You'd think the memories would grow misty
But they only seem clearer as time passes by

That church with the cemetary
Where Granny and Granddad were laid to rest
Is decaying in the elements
Forgotten like too many things from our pasts
Abandoned by it's patrons
Who moved on to something bigger, newer, better
No more flowers placed on gravestones
The dead returned to Sender

In times I grasped with clear signs
You weren't within my reach
Every second I breath

Not many steps are left
Before the final straw
And I'm about to break
It is coming near
Not much time left before the final step
