It was chilly today/ so I ate some chili/ am I in Chile?

    .../or is Chili in me!

    Whoa! Hold on to your hat, but I've got more of that kind of word play up my sleeve/you better believe!

    So yeah, this is actually the poetry thread. A thread where anyone can write anything they want basically. As long as it's poetic that is!!

    Let me try and get the ball rolling, it's been a little while since I've done one:

    As I close my eyes I feel fear scuttle over all my senses like an army of spiders
    I don't want to be unhappy
    I hate to be
    But it's so easy to allow myself to ease back into it's coldly warming embrace
    like I was I slipping into a spider suit
    turning my back on the hope of bathing in the sunshine
    But this isn't for me anymore
    I don't want it
    My name ain't Peter Parker

    Run da streets wid your thugs
    blessed by pac man
    but still
    tongue kissing
    god damn was it good
    The **** that could keep me motivated
    your hand
    it didn't turn to sand
    am I the man?
    Let me know
    I'm too sensitive for games
    I never played pac man

    As a chilli fan, I have to correct you on the spelling there. It is 'chilli' not 'chili' in this country. :p

    My heart was saying one thing
    my head another
    Because we weren't saying much
    Well, maybe I was
    But then I realized that talk is cheap
    and even if it's not, there are other ways to do it
    words are bond
    but so is a good look
    Like Connery in his prime
    I don't think my shell of a heart is betraying me this time
    When you buried your head in the sands of my chest
    I know you found it
    took it
    and heard more than the ocean

    C'mon guys...don't make this my equivalent of AF's thread. Post something!

    Okay vash, drunk enough to take whatever accusations of angst or pretension anyone might level at it now I think.

    Auld Aquaintance

    The trees are skeletal now
    Their ghostly winter forms
    Appearing dead

    I walked through the silent wood
    Following the moss-covered wall
    Crumbling with neglect
    To find the place
    To find the name

    Why return
    To pick at old wounds?
    To scratch them out?
    Damnatio memoriae?
    Pretend as though it never was?

    I did not know
    Although I searched
    And thought I knew the the place
    There was no sign
    No trace of what had been

    Had I not made
    Enough of an impression?

    The tree did not deserve
    The wounds which I inflicted
    Did I deserve my own?
    Perhaps.
    Time and age distorts
    The memory and the wood

    We grow and heal together, now
    But still somewhere inside

    The name
    The wound
    The memory
    Remains.

    When I am gone
    When she is gone
    It will remain until
    One last, brief flame
    Extinguishes the final earthly memory

    Then nothing.

    Life, it carries on
    And love
    And hope
    And fear
    And pain
    And misery
    Belong to folk anew

    And she and I
    And the tree

    Are nothing

    As we ever were.

    Fecking el that's what I call a poem! Still, yous got a ways before you reach the heights of something like my bond/Connery wordplay, but I can't begrudge that.

    C'mon the rest of AUKN!

    Seriously, that was a magnificent poem ayase. I hope I can write something as moving one day

    I'm pretty terrible at taking compliments for things I create because I instinctively think they're sh*t and pick them to pieces myself, but thanks. It took a lot of 13% alcohol to share it.

    No need for alcohol, that was honestly wonderful.

    Mortal Rombat

    Despite common sense, the desert makes you cold
    My heart was frozen solid for so many years
    So it was only natural at first I had fears of you shattering it easily
    Like a romantic Mortal Kombat (Mortal Rombat?) finisher
    The thought of that had my teeth chattering queasily
    I do talk too much
    I know
    I'm a product of this society
    But today it came to me
    I can deal with heartbreak
    Because it couldn't break
    The most you could do was bruise it
    you've defrosted it to such an extent
    When I sit next to you
    I'm always in a deck chair
    so if I get punch drunk off love and hurt
    that seems fair
    As long as I don't bruise you
    you're just far too tender
    So I'll tender you my heart
    I can't think why not to

    My life isn't straight
    it's a round shape
    but it still has corners
    I'm in one
    need to get out
    but the egg shells are cutting up my heart
    but then again part of me doesn't want to follow the line anyway
    so used to the harsh corner slice
    tastes like brittle stones
    or my chipped tooth
    chipped truth
    corner life
    cheeks sagging with bitterness
    no rose
    I think I need to grow
    but right now the only growth is coming from my nose
    it's like a jungle
    or the weed that tumbles
    at every stack of hay I stumble
    and say "you know" a lot
    I hope they do
    and give me a chance to hatch from this egg
    finally.

    Interesting thread. Ayase's post is reminiscent (at least to me) of the Darren Aronofsky film "The Fountain".

    oceans on cold days
    I thought this tube strike ended at 6
    central London always makes me feel more crazy
    it's not a place you should go to everyday there's just something wrong about it
    Primark playing suitably creepy music for me to creep about in
    I'm doing it again
    why can't they change the flipping song
    Am I just hearing it in my head?
    no one else seems bothered by it
    people are trying on 14£ jeans that come with belts
    I'm staring at myself like I'm trying on my face
    I don't look too sure about it
    and I'm not
    what am I?
    an ugly narcissist?
    that's the worst kind
    I can't circle anymore
    I think I'm starting to scare the staff
    I'm scaring myself
    did I scare her?
    did she realise like I realise now
    that I look like one of those terrorist mugshots you always see on the evening news
    maybe that sounds racist sorry
    like big bird then
    one of the staff walks past me
    I quickly switch my twitchy gaze to a backpack that has the union jack on it
    and pretend to examine it with sweaty hands and brow
    maybe it would have been more convincing
    if I wasn't already wearing the biggest and most expensive red backpack in the world
    outside at last
    I'm definitely not on the right path
    I'm in such a muddle
    such a puddle
    lost my only chance to escape
    that's stupidity not fate

    A blithe spirit and a pair of walking boots certainly help, I find!

    I'm the least blithe person in world Zink brother. There's almost no activity I can do without getting upset and troubled over something, especially walking around Central great wen. Do you too go into the central London daily, Zinki? Why do we not meet for Coffee or Pint?

    I work in Soho! I would certainly be game for a rendezvous! I recall everyone planned something last year, before the website outage saw an end to such discussions.

    Sweet. I'm always about in central London due to uni and whatnot, but I live in London anyway so I'd be game anyway. Yeah I think I remember us tentatively talking last year. If anyone else in (or out of) the big smoke wants to mingle then that's cool. Just send me a message when you're free or up for it, Zinki.
