Thenorn's poetry thread (#2)

Discussion in 'Arts & Banner Showcase' started by Thenorn, Apr 3, 2021.

  1. "Please leave me alone."
    "I don't want to live an illusion, I just want to understand and to be understood."
    "That tiny ray in our heart of what could've been can only be removed by what could be."

    August 5, 2020



    August 9, 2020

    The sky blue as ever,
    yet my eyes are not enjoying the view.
    I can't find any pleasure whatsoever,
    for whenever I seek it, I find it in you.

    My dear guardian angel.

    Every second of a gloomy day
    and every dream of the rainy night.
    Every word I want to say
    and every thing in my sight.

    It has a piece of you in it.

    Because now you are not here
    and the void is larger with every passing moment.
    Sometimes I wish I could disappear
    to avoid facing my abandonment.

    So I can at least meet you in a dream.

    For now I sit poor and lonely,
    awaiting the return of much needed hope.
    Thinking to myself sorrowfully,
    if only I could find another way to cope.

    As if something could save you from love.

    "Losing You"
    August 12, 2020

    I have a fear
    that one day you will not be there.
    That you will disappear,
    leaving me lost in the middle of nowhere.

    Well, know this:
    I can barely go on a day without you.
    You are the person I terribly miss;
    just your absence turns my day blue.

    Why have you conquered my heart?
    I promised to never hurt myself again.
    So why is the thought of us being apart
    putting me into so much pain?

    Is loving you too much to ask for?

    She was not a common sight,
    to him she was a bright light.
    And as if nothing else existed,
    his reality became increasingly twisted.

    He believed in the beauty of love and joy,
    dreamt about them since he was a little boy.
    Not knowing that people aren't just fantasies,
    and that Cupid's arrows have many casualties.

    Racing with a storm of thought,
    he was left helpless to rot.
    Everything seemed bleak and grim,
    until one day it had finally dawned on him.

    "It is time to let go of this memory.
    It is time to open another chapter of the story."

    And he let his love shine for one last flash;
    in a supernova of poetry, it became ash.

    "The Edge of Existence"
    November 30, 2020

    It all seems so different,
    as if another painter colored the world.
    It all seems so insignificant,
    like a past quarrel on a death bed.

    Back where you came from,
    there are no answers to be found.
    So keep walking slowly
    towards the edge of existence.

    Feelings are mixed, unbalanced,
    and the wind seems to have a different taste.
    But keep walking slowly
    towards the edge of existence.

    The human mind only awakens
    when it arrives at the event horizon.
    There is no coming back
    from the edge of existence.

    (Four) shooting stars
    (Three) wishes
    (Two) souls
    (One) answer

    "Who Will Save Us Now?"

    December 8, 2020

    When rain brings sorrows of eternity
    and reminiscence of our sheer fragility;
    when the rooms are dark and cold,
    and there is no hand to hold.

    When your heart is like an abandoned home
    whose old inhabitants are long from earth gone;
    the smell of old furniture fading away,
    as if the memories were not meant to stay.

    When nothing is quite like it used to be;
    when entire parts of perception disappear;
    when the consciousness feels completely numb
    and there is no hope in the days to come:

    Who will save us now?

    "Fade Away"
    December 10, 2020

    Fade away into the night
    Far away in a bright neon light
    Let the dreams come to you flying
    And soar with them to see everything

    Unfold on your palm
    A story so calm
    Of a brave little boy
    Whose best friend was a toy

    Fairytales faded into reality
    But for him most importantly
    The dreams lived on inside his head
    Hanging on a thin, worn out thread

    As tragedies came and went
    More and more he dreamt
    His heart's scars shone gold
    He made sure it was never cold

    One day the sky poured tears
    For this magical story of his
    Started to lose its color
    And the days grew duller

    "How much longer?" he asked in pain;
    One that he was no longer able to contain
    "What's the meaning of this? When will it end?
    Can't you see that I am struggling to defend?"

    The next day, he went into a forest
    Where life's heartbeat is always nearest
    And the green and blue replenished his soul
    So that in another dream he could fall

    Dreams merged with life, memories appeared
    But his traumas he no longer feared
    No longer blind to life, no longer blind to love
    He still dreamt of the stars above

    But he shared that dream with another heart
    That always wants to redo from the start
    And the birds listened just like before
    To hear the old stories of his once more

    They're fading away into the night
    Far away in a bright neon light
    Fly with the dreams towards the horizon
    Soar above the rising sun's shining

    March 18, 2021

    Reflected in a mirror, my entire past lies.
    Reminding me of the distant, broken ties.
    In there, it gets greener.
    And a little bit colder.
    For some reason, memories of cold days
    still blow northerly winds into my face.
    Memories contained in meaningless numbers
    about which my mind still often ponders.
    It is the only link to the land of no return,
    I'm afraid it will continue to make me mourn.

    But the link is just another lie.
    There is nothing true about this tie.
    It is a broken mirror,
    nothing to long for.
    Even though longing is my natural state,
    there will be twists and turns to my fate.
    The chains of the past will be broken,
    I will forget all the words unspoken.
    The mirror does not reflect the past anymore,
    it is finally time to open a new door.

    March 26, 2021

    Floating away
    in a sea of electrons
    passing by the ions
    in an effortless movement

    Clashing with tides
    of water so pure
    to oxonium it fades
    a proton's allure

    Will I surrender
    when acid's all I see
    corrupting the tender
    heart of mine in fear?

    I'm falling away
    in an endless decay
    it seems I can't stay
    in the new formulae

  3. Hello!

    I am speechless! You have an incredible talent of showing true emotion through writing. My favorite in this thread was definitely "Longing". The word choice, and rhyming made it flow very nicely. Incredible job, I look forward to many more of these in the future.

  4. Thanks for the compliment. I took up writing poetry around this time last year, and I only write for myself and a few people I occasionally show it to, as well as on these threads and on a currently inactive instagram account. I've never thought about publishing, I don't know if you're serious about that or not.

    Thanks so much! My writing is a reflection of the most vulnerable parts of myself, which probably helps get the emotion across. If you want to see more, you can check the first thread with older poems: https://www.mineplex.com/threads/thenorns-poetry-dump.131503/

  5. A fellow poet. Your poems are really something great, I've been writing poetry for around 3 years now. I really do enjoy your style and similar to you, a lot of my pieces focus on my most vulnerable parts. I really enjoyed Supernova; Love poems are my favorite to write.

    Good job

  7. I noticed a lot of the dates are fairly close to one another. Do you work on multiple at a time, or did you finish one and just happen to finish another that quickly? Either way is incredible in my opinion. They're all wonderful, and it wouldn't surprise me at all if one or two of these end up in a literature book in a few decades. Keep writing, you've definitely got a gift for it!

  8. Oh, hey there, long time no see. When I wrote purely romantic poems, I would usually write one whenever I felt inspired. In most cases they are done in under 15 minutes. For example, in mid-May I wrote six poems in circa 15 days, and in August there were five in the span of three weeks (two of them are on this thread). This is because in both of these periods, my emotions were at a peak. "Supernova" marked a turning point where I'd change the way I approach romance in general, which also meant I'd include it less in my poems. Because of this, I didn't write a full poem for another two months (although I recently had to factory reset my phone which erased my notes app so I can't make sure there wasn't something that I just didn't send to anyone). The three poems that followed were written when I was feeling down, which always produces something. Recently, I've just been generally unmotivated so I wait for the right moment to come. Hopefully that explains the dynamic.

  12. Theses are so creative!
    I was going to quote on of my favorite lines but I couldn't personally choose one since there are so many good ones. Awesome job at writing these poems, I really did find these poems good. Keep up the good work, i'd love to see some more poems from you in the future!

  13. Hello there sym,
    blessed be your presence.
    My memory of you is dim,
    but speaks of a great alliance.

    One that conquered cake after cake,
    day after day we fought our foes.
    Even though I made mistake after mistake,
    to the top we always rose.

    Please play mineman
    with me someday.
    I am big fan.
    Dunno what else to say.

  14. Hey!

    I really loved reading all of these. I think you have a super talent for poetry in the way you write, and I have always admired people who can really look at the bigger picture of life in a verbally artistic way. My favourite one was "Reflected" because I feel like as someone who dwells on the past, and past anniversary dates quite a fair bit, I resonate with it a lot. Keep up the amazing talent :D

  15. Thanks! I do quite the same thing. Yesterday was one year since I resigned and also the third worst day of the worst year of my life, so you can probably tell I keep track of a lot of things. Keep your head up and remember that good things lie ahead, even when it seems like you were better off before or if you've missed out on something. Life always finds a way.
