So this is life -Poetry of sorts

So This Is Life (will be) a collection of all the poetry I have ever written. It may take me a while to compile it all, but please be patient with me! My poems have an odd style, and often little or no rhyme scheme. There will be no particular order to my posting of poetry, although everything I post will be something I've written in the past, with the oldest being from four years ago. If this is not what you're looking for, feel free to ignore this, and I hope you find it elsewhere! Please do pm me critique or just your thoughts; I'd love to hear them! However, please don't leave hurtful comments or post in this thread as I would rather keep this for just poetry. Otherwise, happy reading and thank you!

So this is life -Moonlight Whispers

Postby KCADO » Sun Feb 12, 2017 11:21 pm

    Moonlight Whispers

    The silver light
    that comes in the night
    from my window,
    from the moon

    It cuts through the dark
    like a wave, like a shark,
    and whispers me that soon,

    Soon you'll be there
    with your warm soft hair
    and your gentle, golden smile

    and then we'll sit
    in the darkness, starlit
    and dream a little while

    of forests, slowly creaking
    till it seems though they are speaking
    to me, to you, and to your smile
    -KeepCalmAndDrarryOn

So this is life -Raindrops

Postby KCADO » Sun Feb 12, 2017 11:25 pm

    Raindrops

    Sometimes I like it when
    the rain beats down outside;
    when the constant onslaught of
    the ground sounds soft
    and soothing, and it
    all just blurs into one
    big soporific drumroll.

    Sometimes I hate it when
    the rain beats down outside;
    when the soft, constant drumroll
    is erratic and startling
    interspersed with all of the
    unevenness of life,
    like

    the birds on the rooftops taking
    flight, a
    sudden raucous explosion
    of wing beats,
    or the droplets of cloud
    that get caught on the
    windowsill above mine
    and drip down with
    no real pattern,
    just noise.

So this is life -Golden

Postby KCADO » Sun Feb 12, 2017 11:30 pm

    Golden

    You are golden
    Everywhere I think of you

    I remember you
    Curled into a ball of happy exhaustion
    By my side
    You were golden then
    It shone slowly out
    Like a nightlight

    I remember you
    Laughing like you would never laugh again
    And then your laughter was golden
    It filled the room
    And my heart
    With light

    I remember you
    Wrapped in my scarf
    And my arms
    Then you were trying to hide your light
    But still it shone out
    Reflecting golden on the faces of the people around us

    I remember you
    Sitting with me on the cold stone steps
    You lent me your light
    To warm us both
    And that was golden too

    I think of you now
    And everywhere I think of you
    You are golden

So this is life -Colours and emotions

Postby KCADO » Mon Feb 13, 2017 4:12 am

    Colours and emotions

    We're a colourwheel of emotion, you and I.
    You say you like purple, and I know I like you.
    I like black and red, the colours of my life's worth, the colours of my heart that beats every
    Desperate Drowning Beat for you.
    You like silver and I like gold, and we're opposites yet complimentary.
    I think
    But my thoughts are not important, not when you're here in my arms and you're all I can see and all I can breathe,
    Because I would beg to drown if it would mean that I could drown side by side and watch our dying breaths rise with you.

Re: So this is life -Sleeping

Postby KCADO » Tue Feb 14, 2017 5:09 am

Sleeping

The car has stopped
And as you burn a hole into my shoulder;
Perhaps you are sleeping,
Perhaps you are not;
I sit
And write
And try not to dream.
I think that perhaps this should mean
Something,
But
I also think that perhaps
It should not.
I want to stay like this.
Does that mean something too?
I think and as I think I realise that you can see right
Through me;
You can see who I am, better than I can see myself, and
You feel like safety to me;
A bubble of not-quite silence.
The fiery outside sounds can't permeate it.
And in the end,
Is that really such a
Bad thing?

So this is life -Supernova

Postby KCADO » Sat Feb 18, 2017 11:04 pm

    Supernova

    They're telling me to get back on my feet
    but I don't know where
    the ground is
    anymore
    I was drifting quietly
    until he crashed into me
    on his way down
    and now I'm falling
    at a hundred miles an hour
    I'm freezing on the inside
    and burning on my skin
    and all of me is starting
    to give in
    As I burn through the atmosphere
    I can only hope
    that when I'm done
    crashing and burning
    you'll be there to pick up
    all the tiny pieces of me
    and keep them safely
    until the time comes
    for you
    to join me
    and then I'll be there
    to welcome you home
    with open arms
    and a softly glowing smile
    and I'll say
    'hello, my supernova'
    -KeepCalmAndDrarryOn

So this is life -I Read Your Note

Postby KCADO » Mon May 29, 2017 4:02 am

    I read your note

    I read your note
    Sitting in the rapidly enclosing space of my mind
    The train tracks racing around my head
    Took me directly to the darkest station
    The worst possible conclusion
    So I sat for a moment
    Then I read your note again
    I noticed the heart sketched at the bottom
    And the postscript;
    'smell the ink'
    So I did
    And the trains slowed down,
    Running out of steam
    And relaxing to a gentle buzzing murmur
    And I could breathe again
    And I read the whole thing through for a third time
    Running my fingers over the letters,
    Tracing your thoughts
    As they left my head
    So thank you
    For being there
    For helping my racing train track thoughts
    To slow down
    And curl up
    Into cotton wool
    And kittens

Re: So this is life -Hear me Shatter

Postby KCADO » Mon May 29, 2017 5:07 am

    Hear me Shatter

    As you marked me
    for the first time
    I laughed
    and blushed
    and covered you in
    markings
    of your own
    But the marks
    are fading
    faster each time
    and my
    lungs
    are learning not to
    gasp
    And very soon
    I think
    that to even
    {Hear Me}
    at all
    you're going to have to
    {Shatter}
    me into
    a million
    fiberglass
    shards
