    ...Somehow, the poetry section became very inactive. And I have decided to return to it by a random impulse. This is a thread in which I will post a compilation of a lot of poems. Be patient with me...I haven't written poetry in a while. Constructive Criticsm is greatly welcomed and appreciated, or even just a small post that says 'Hi, I was here and I read your poems.' Little things like that can keep me going.

    The first poem:
    Your Choice
    Spoiler:


    Four legs, but I walk on two


    Orange skin, a bright flare


    Nestled on my soft tail





    Moist skin, brown shell


    Blood-red eyes, glinting


    I am playful


    Let me drench you





    Pink pod resting upon my back


    Green skin, darker splotches


    A gentle nature


    A dark secret





    You will take me


    We will battle


    I might drown your enemies


    I might burn them


    I might poison your foes


    It all depends


    Your choice


    It answers the final question:


    Who am I?

    Shove

    Spoiler:


    I ran into a door, mom


    This bruise on my forehead


    Is my own doing





    With one hand, he flung me into it


    Into the wall, my head hits first


    I cry, and he calls me pathetic





    I tripped and scraped my knees, mom


    The blood running down my leg


    Is my own doing





    All he does is trip me


    I shoved him down and tried to run away


    He grabbed my legs


    Clawed at them


    I cried for mercy, he calls me a wimp





    I fell down the stairs


    landed strange, mom


    This cast on my arm


    Is my own doing





    I scream for him to get off of me


    He bends my arm behind my back


    We both hear the crack


    I cry softer than before


    He tells me to grow up





    Mom, I promise I'll be more careful


    I'll never be as clumsy again


    I'm sure of it





    The next day, I have brought it


    He balls his hands into fists


    I point it at him


    His face pales


    Power goes to me


    I laugh at his pain


    He is forced to be silent

    (For all those wondering, in Shove, the protoganist brought a stick. With society today, I bet you guys thought he did something different. Let's get this straight: Poking a person with a stick is more effective than anything. Just thought you oughta know.)

      *sigh* Why is the poetry section so inactive?
      The next batch of poems:

      Aunt Marianne(aka Adventures in Castelia City)
      Spoiler:

      Rough, pink, disgusting
      It rests behind his lips
      He hides quarters under it
      But today, no quarters
      It has a different purpose

      It climbs up me
      Taking a part of me with it
      His teeth soon follow
      As does the pain
      I cry in agony
      He does not stop
      I am sentient
      He does not care

      It started when I saw her
      My Aunt Marianne
      Within an ice cream cart
      Mistaken for a Castelia Cone
      We are not Castelia Cone's
      We live in Cold Storage
      We taste like vanilla
      But we are sentient
      And that is enough to stop
      To stop the terror
      To stop the inhumanity
      To stop most..

      This boy is an exception
      He wants to taste my flavor
      I went in after Marianne
      And the two of us were trapped
      I was sold first
      My life was given away
      So my fate lies
      Within a stomach
      Be safe, Marianne
      My sincerest hope
      Is that you can escape

      Butterfrees in my Stomach
      Spoiler:

      Butterfrees in my Stomach
      This is it, the final bit
      Of my journey; my quest
      This is it, but there's this pit
      Within my stomach
      It hurts, it throbs
      Can I still make it?

      From when I was ten
      I wanted this moment
      From when I was ten
      I was told I could beat them
      From when I was ten
      I have been with my team

      They are loyal to me
      I am loyal to them
      Together, we did it
      We beat them
      Together, we got here
      To this point
      Where the last surprise
      Could be fatal

      I was told to face the League
      Four of them, in a row
      We had made it
      We had suffered
      But there was a catch
      Nobody told me
      I was unprepared

      Nobody told me
      There was never four
      The league lied
      There was one more elite
      One more elite trainer
      The only one left
      The final obstacle
      The hardest challenge

      He waits beyond this door
      He waits for his victim
      It has been two years
      It has taken two years
      To get to this door
      I wish I never got here

      The final obstacle
      Is the sole victor
      The only one before me
      That had beaten the four
      By doing so, he became it
      He became number five
      He became 'Champion'
      And I have entered the door

      Our eyes lock
      The start of a battle
      His eyes twinkle
      The thought of challenge
      My knees shake
      The fear and adrenaline
      Our hands reach
      Both latch onto one
      A spherical shape
      That is in the air
      That has landed
      That has opened
      That has revealed

      The creatures face each other
      My mouth is dry
      He tips his hat back
      I can't yell a command
      No, I have been paralyzed
      Fear
      It's all over

      He notices and it dissipates
      The heat, the adrenaline
      His smile has vanished
      He asks if I'll be okay
      In response, I vomit
      The clean, grand room
      Has been dirtied
      I have embarassed myself

      But he just nods at me
      He tells me that it is okay
      And then his pokemon
      His Pikachu
      It loses it's offensive stance
      Instead, it comes over
      Rubs against me
      We talk a little bit
      And I realize it's not about this
      I don't have to win
      It's about giving it my all
      To have fun with them
      My friends, my pokemon

      His courage spreads to me
      We resume opposite sides
      Our pokemon are out again
      This time, I'm ready
      The battle has begun

        ...I wonder if anybody is even reading these. Anyways, I decided to read the "Poetry Guide" in the sticky part of the poetry section and pick one. In my old poetry threads, I have never done what I have decided to half-attempt. What I am half-attempting:
        THE SONNET!!! (dramatic music)
        The sonnet may be the hardest form of poetry. Given I don't have that deep of a poetry vocabulary(ex. iambic perimeter, quatrain, etc.), I picked my criteria from the brief part I did understand:
        -14 lines, 10 syllables each
        -ABAB CDCD EFEF GG rhyme scheme
        -Also, sonnets tend to have a 'philosophical idea' or message within them as the guide stated. Given that this is my first time attempting one, and that I'm only going on a half-attempt for the first try(I left out some criteria...), I will probably not have an idea too philosophical.
        A final note before I begin:
        If anyone is reading this, tell me the rest of teh criteria in simple terms so I can try a rewrite. I need feedback before a second attempt!

        THE SONNET:
        Valentine's Day, hearts in a daze today
        The big dance is happening tomorrow
        For chocolates and hearts, guys have to pay
        With money spent, love is your wallets foe
        ...
        Girls desire a lovely teddy bear

        Some people never get asked to the dance
        If not asked, their hearts shall suffer despair
        Boys stare at cute girls as if in a trance
        ...

        Hearts are broken, relationships are born
        Cupid has a busy job, spreading love
        Girls want a new dress, one that is not worn
        Plently of matches, Cupid makes above
        ...

        The day of the dance finally arrives
        Boys currently dancing with future wives

          EGAD! I attempted a crazy Sonnet and nobody responded!
          I guess the poetry section is...a bit dead.
          Anyways, this is the final poem I'll make without a review. What's the point of writing poems if nobody can enjoy them? If I get one comment, one just 'Hey, I was here and I like your poems,' or something, I will continue. Until then, this is my final poem for this dying thread:
          Spoiler:

          The End
          In my older poetry, as any can see
          I was obsessed with The End
          Apocalypse's occuring rapidly
          The poems giving them imagery

          In my days of childhood
          I pondered how we would end
          How the world would die
          In my days of adulthood
          I ponder how my life will end
          How I would cease

          If the world ends
          And you're not around
          Did the world truly end

          If you're not there
          Not living or alive
          Think this, I dare
          Would you care
          If we met the End
