View Full Version : A thread for the Cow's poetry...

Hmmm... I had never even thought about putting my poetry up on PC, but I found the poetry thread today and browsed around it and came to the conclusion that I had nothing to lose by posting my poetry! So I've made a thread for all my poems! I will just start with one poem, and if people like it, then I will post more!

I'd also like to say that if anyone is extremely interested in getting feedback on any writing or art of any form they should join deviantART!!! (http://www.deviantart.com) Everyone there is very helpful!! :) Feel free to check out my page there too! http://pigeonpyro.deviantart.com

Anyways, here's my first poem!!! (well it's not actually the first poem I've written, it's just the first one I'm going to post... :D)

Handle With Care

The heart is a fragile thing.
I handed you mine knowing
The risk i was taking.
You paid no heed to the instructions,
The worn sticker stuck to the side,
'HANDLE WITH CARE' gleamed in bold black letters,
Letters which your eyes seemed to have overlooked.
It did not take long for your grip to wane,
You realised a moment too late,
You fumbled madly to catch it before it fell
But your futile efforts and regrets were useless.
The shatter could be heard miles away,
The shards of my heart were strewn across the floor.
You stared in a stunned silence at what you had done,
You denounced the fault and refused the blame.
You walked away without remorse,
Not caring what happened to me.
A janitor chanced upon the remains
And swept the crystals of my heart were swept up
Into the garbage, where they await salvation.
