Tuypo, next time you want to post something else, could you just edit your previous post? I don't want to sound rude, but I don't want double/triple posting to become too common a thing :/
i disagree i think that related additions should be edited in but i think that separate ideas should stay seperate

Ummmm, this might sound childish and retarded, but this is a dwarven song I wrote some time ago:

I am not a native speaker so my vocabulary might be poor, but it's better to try than to do nothing at all.

Run from the shadow run from the light
Run from that that makes you fight
Run from the hate run from the love
Run from the hawk and run from the dove

Run from the pleasure run from the pain
Run from the honor run from the shame
Run from the market run from the house
Run from the eagle run from the grouse

Run from the in and run from the out
Run from the decision and run from the doubt
Run from the young and run from the old
Run from the dung and run from the gold

How can I live when I run
From everything under the sun

Then

Run to the shadow run to the light
Run to that that makes you fight
Run to the hate run to the love
Run to the hawk and run to the dove

Run to the pleasure run to the pain
Run to the honor run to the shame
Run to the market run to the house
Run to the eagle run to the grouse

Run to the in and run to the out
Run to the decision and run to the doubt
Run to the young and run to the old
Run to the dung and run to the gold

How can I live when I run
To everything under the sun?

Then

Run from the shadow run to the light
Run to and from that that makes you fight
Run from the hate run to the love
Run to the hawk and run to the dove

Run from the pleasure run from the pain
Run to the honor run from the shame
Run to the market run to the house
Run to the eagle run to the grouse

Run to the in and run to the out
Run to the decision and run from the doubt
Run to the young and run to the old
Run to the dung and run to the gold

Now I can live

Was rereading Return of the King, so wrote this:

King Theoden the Brave went wandering
Pine trees were blowing, streams flowing.
They came to wood and flowers growing
Beside the road, he went wandering.
Enemies came, fire surrounding,
Knives there were, blood there was falling.
Son of Eorl with lance came striding,
Over foes the Brave man riding
On back of horse came Theoden quickly.
There Light he bore, none more kingly,
And smote he did the evil enemy,
The Southrons and the Witch King’s Army
To Gondor wandered Theoden quickly,
Afore the world grew cold and horse turned sickly.

Wrote another LoTR themed one:

The horn of Merry in the wind of yore
Was blowing through the grasses green.
The horses on its bowl did dance about
And fling their weight about that scene.
No Bullroarer to hold our walls in peace,
But Ent-Draught makes Entlings and Hobbits sprout,
And so came Merry, Sam and Frodo
Singing through the gates in time of doubt.

They came across their fellow man
Who long had sold their souls for rules,
But uplifted were the hearts of the opressed,
When Merry rang his Horn of many tunes!
They flocked around the banner then
To fight the dreaded men.
There Sam, the loyal servant came and rode
The sun upon his mail did gleam and shine,
And through the grasses Pippin strode
A Captain of the Bywater Battle,
A dweller on the banks of the Brandywine
Where waters flow and the Brandybucks did settle.

No foe could stand against those four,
For Frodo also rode that road
Along a lane inside the shire
Without his evil Load.
No Beast nor man, Orc or Hobbit fiend
No harm inside his native land.
The call went up, the weapons they did wield
Were held aloft with calloused hand
And on their arms they bore a shield
That shone a light throughout the land.


@Zlob:
Your poem was good, and I liked it.

I'd appreciate it if more people would post their favourite/liked poems, but regardless here's one I wrote there now:

O’er field and fife, through toil and strife
Along this lane I gladly go.
The lowing of the cows I hear, that stick their heads
Brown-speckled over the hoary gate.
The sparrows flit in multitude,
In hosts most glory-filled with hope,
And know the gift that’s solitude,
A hand to those that cannot cope.

Yellow flowers, green-filled hedges,
Here comes the thunder to tear asunder,
The lines of brown before my eyes
The lines of rutted brown now fill with water.
Oh, little earthly lakes that fill
With water of the heaven’s tears!
For walking down that lane,
The sparrows flit and dive away,
And clouds come rolling in
That drives out sun and fearless day.

But yellow flowers will not dim,
The day will rise again.
So walk and live through sun and storm,
Come Light or falling rain.

My love
He loves me and I love him
But we have not touched.
He is text on my screen
And I, the same to him.

He says “You can do better than him”
I tell him, “You can do better”
He could have any one he wants.
But he wants me.

He is my support, for when I falling down
My happiness for when I am sad.
My company for when I am lonely
If I lose him, then I lose me, for he is my everything.

I am weird, random, socially inept.
He is plagued with many demons,
Many more then what he has told me.
We will remained fucked up, together
Hand in hand.

Made by me, for school, enjoy.....

My Pie
I sit in this café, eating a piece of pie.
At this moment I am the queen.
I am the picture of nobility
 my clothes are now the finest outfit in the city
and my manners are proper.
All the girls
envys my looks
    wish to be me,
while all the men
    feel desires of lust and romance.
Everyone’s job
 is to serve me
and please me.
I am perfect,
until I finish
my piece of pie

another by myself

Same applies, I'm afraid, unless some time has passed since your last post :P

Regardless, I think the Pie one was very well done.

To put a name to Tiruin's, it's If, by Rudyard Kipling.

My dreams are not unlike yours - they long for the safety, and break like a glass chandelier.
But there's laughter and oh there is love, just past the edge of our fears.
And there's chaos when push comes to shove, but it's music to my ears.

That just became one of my favourites. It's always annoying to me that they can make it sound so effortless, almost easy. I envy 'em.

Ah well, here's another stab at it by me:

Dwarfy wants me to post here because he's lonely.
(If you want to drudge my other stuff out of the Writer's thread, you can.)

"So you think your lives aren't watched by the clock?"
He cackles and coughs, sputters and sneers,
"But when you reach the door, I know you'll knock.
I know three times, just like we did here."
And out he pulls his mysterious contraption,
"For the things we had, of knowledge, nothing,"
Meticulously measured, to divine infraction
"And even then, we never saw it coming."

Oh look, I have a steam account.
Might as well chalk it up to Pathos.
As this point we might as well invoke interpretive dance and call it a day.

I call these "stupid songs/poems get out of my head I'm trying to sleep". I cannot vouch for their quality.

Ha, I get that too :P
Here's the one I posted in this thread:

In dagger hilt a flame of gold,
In silver blade a sheen of light,
On hilt of stone a gem of old,
In old mens’ eyes the gleam of sight.

In heroes’ hands a blade to kill,
In poet’s arms a force to keep
As in our minds a flame is still
That we have yet to reap.

The gleam of sword, the sound of coin,
The heat of flame, the flow of streams,
The heart of yore still beats its rhyme
Where heart and country deems.

Also, they flowed well, and let's face it-most poems are at best nonsensical :P
