A poem from the soul of Sebastian
« on: October 06, 2008, 05:16:51 PM »
 Sitting, waiting to be remembered,
 A smile in passing, a thoughtful glance,
 man is nothing more than memory,
 one stacked upon another, until, in culmination, they form a soul,
 each soul wants to be remembered,
 wives, children, grand children, great grand children,
 stretching out into eternity,
 remembered by every living being they connected too,
 everyone they touched,
 everyone they held,
 everyone they failed,
 blending into one final push toward eternal life,
 MAN IS NOTHING MORE THAN MEMORIES.......

 "Mystery"

  Mystery, the fog before the storm,
 the mist on the mountain,
 the glow of a fading sun,
 What lies ahead is a veil over the soul,
 shrouding the vision of those that seek tommorrow,
 the wise know the spindle never stops turning,
 and the sisters of fate yarn out lives and snip cords in ways mortals cannot realize,
 What right do we have to beg revelation of mystery?
 Take up your shovels wise ones,
 dig your holes deep,
 and when fate cuts your cord, and mystery becomes clear
                           Sleep Well.

 I really like these. But the second one is my favorite. Beautiful irony. Keep 'em coming! :wink:

darkness follows me, shrouding me like a veil,
my security is my inabilty to see,
ignorance is bliss, I dont know whats eating me,
so it doesn't bother me,

what happens when you wake up half gone?
turn on the light, and fight back coward!

 So many things that can mean! I love poetry that lets each reader gather something different from it. Short and sweet. Very well done, sabman. :wink:

My crime was being born, a victim of my mind I walk alone,
Rage fuels me, when all else fails I destroy everything,
How many times will I try to break myself?
How many times will the blood of others stain my soul?

What life has worth that values nothing?
Will my poison choke those around me once again?
Time is my enemy, I still have too much time left.

 I'm sending a link to this poem to someone who I think will understand it better than I... another great poem, sabman.

 I do have a question though.. why are they all so short? I don't mean to imply that they aren't good... they're just short and I'm curious as to why... :?

I have a book of poems, actually two, that I wrote that contain some poems from a relatively dark period in my life, that are very long. The last couple of poems here are spur of the moment thoughts from tonight. Not to go into a bunch of unneccessary detail, but when I have a thought I write it down or type it, to get it out, this is my way of avoiding the bottle up, therefore avoiding the big bangs Im notorious for.

 Very wise on your part. I do hope you post some of the longer ones someday. I'm a big fan of poetry of any kind. As you can tell from my varied poetry. :laugh:

darkness, thick as water in the lungs of my soul,
Falling away from myself into darkness,
What meaning does life hold?
Promises given and taken away,
the very nature of a thing turned loose on itself,
Writhing, breathing, living in darkness,
every hopeful glimpse of happiness to come,
snatched away by the ever faithful memory of happiness shattered,
Failure, overbearing failure,overbearing failure, overbearing failure, overbearing failure,
                                  Pain
