    Lately I've engrossed myself in the material of Edgar Allen Poe and am finding a new love with poetry. This thread is for anything about poetry. Talk about your favorite/least favorite poets. Share your favorite poems or your own personal poems (pussies). Humor is allowed...

    I don't how you can like music and not like poetry. Lyrics are often poetic (though not poems) and the phrases and words that make up poems convey feelings just as melodies and rythym dictate the feeling of a song. Modern music originated from Greek poetry and the scales that were created because of their way of speacking in rythym and pitches so stop being fags.

    I don't think I even know any modern poets. I've heard slam poetry and I think that's fucking dumb as shit.

    I took a contemporary poetry course a little while ago, and I found some of it to be decent...trying to remember some names. Adrienne Rich had some decent stuff. Sylvia Plath. I did like one poem Amiri Baraka did called "Facing It." I actually wrote a paper on it for the class. It's funny, a few years ago Amiri Baraka was appointed the poet laureate of New Jersey, and then he wrote a really controversial poem about 9/11 (among many other things...not the most neutral poet), and instead of getting rid of him, the state got rid of the position. So now New Jersey no longer has the position of poet laureate.

    Alright, I'll check those names out, especially Amiri Baraka.

    Here is a poem I wrote years ago. It is loosely based on myself at a certain point in my life.


    Escape from Escape

    I have planned an escape for myself
    Reality is way too boring
    Either that or it just hurts too much
    The retardation of my awareness
    Has created a mental haze about my life
    A haze that makes it hard to see
    The reasons why, and who is me
    Escape from escape is what I now need
    But to escape would mean to change
    To give up the life I call my own
    Or possibly to see the pain that dwells in me
    Psychological addiction pulls at my brain
    The Physical one tears at my flesh
    It all seems like so much to even think about
    So I won't

    A glooming peace this morning with it brings;
    The sun, for sorrow, will not show his head:
    Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things;
    Some shall be pardon'd, and some punished:
    For never was a story of more woe
    Than this of Juliet and her Romeo.

    Writing poetry is a good way to connect with yourself and to reconcile with personal inhibitions. I'll post some of my shit once I get back to my house and get to my notebook.

    These cryptic writings
    you set in stone
    help seal your fate
    This pocketwatch relationship
    ticks away,
    as I drink to forget about
    all the lies you told
    and all the things that might have been

    Thread starter, you are right, Edgar Allen Poe is amazing. I'll post one of my poems up soon. It was inspired by a book, and there was one part in the book that really effected me, a magnificent scene the part was.

    I was learning by heart one of the huge Edgar Poe's poems - "The Raven". Just for myself. Man, this is an awesome shit.

    I do a bit of creative writing every now and then. Here's a piece of an unfinished poem I started sometime last week:



    I spread myself upon the bed
    Awaiting visits to my head
    And as my thoughts start to unwind
    A climbing chord upends my mind

    From the window's vaulted gloom
    A fog unfolds into my room
    Whorled arms lap up dark air
    And opaque drapes melt shelves and chairs

    Within my eyes as from afar -
    Quilted heavens, patterned stars
    Crystal flames in bas relief
    Enclose me in a red-orange wreath

    I rise to dance - my feet are light
    Parades of muscles trail in flight
    Sweat-slick skin and pounding breast
    Youth's abandon, mind undressed



    Most of my poetry has some degree of psychedelic imagery and physical sensations. It's kind of my main shtick. Oh, and I don't always use such strict rhyming patterns, as it tends to make the poem sound pretty cheesy; but in this case I thought it would help to boost the general vibe of madness that I was going for in the piece.
