elliptical infinityyou exhale artelliptical infinity by DalekCaanII
and inhale the air
that everybody else
breathes but somehow,
made you different;
heaven made you beautiful
like what the other poets
say about the people that
they say they could spend
(if you want me
to be boring, i'll
just say "i love
DevourOh I'm well aware of my own limitations,Devour by WordOfChen
Unlike you, I do not quite have the talent.
I cannot warp the minds of the young and malleable,
I cannot make them believe I am greater than I am.
I am simply, not like you...
But if I were to eat you, I wonder.
Would I too experience such glory?
If I were to devour your flesh,
And drink your soul as if it were a fine wine.
Would I too become great?
Let us find out you and I;
And I'll thank you in advance, for the lovely meal!
The Mountain Climber'It's so quiet at the top of the mountain that the snowflakes tinkle softly like little bells as they fall.'The Mountain Climber by Farand
Only one man has ever climbed the mountain. On descending, he made no statement, save for the above-quoted remark. He went home, got into bed, and died.
What had happened? He went mad, the locals said: he had seen or heard something divine ― or evil. The newspapers suggested altitude sickness: 'When you've lived among rice paddies your entire life, you'll be breathless if you stand on your tiptoes.'
I wonder whether he fell into a deep depression on hearing the purity of the snowflakes' music. Did it sadden him to think that no-one else would hear it?
The mountain isn't tall; but the locals are superstitious. When you're eighty-two years old, perhaps you're less afraid of the punishment of the gods.
Losing ItI'm kind of going crazy,Losing It by WordOfChen
I'm caught inside my mad mind.
Ten different things weigh me down, but I'm still fine!
The words are coming slowly, my mind is on a slur.
I can't string this poem, because the brain is on a blur!
And I get so frustrated, I tear away at skin;
The hair is falling down and the voices make a din!
I wanna shut them out, but I can't find a key,
So all that I can do is simply shut away the ME.
