Written by Snowshoerabbit in portal Publishing

Hopelessly

So you say you're looking for fresh talent. I can tell you, you won't find any with me. I'm just another hopeful person hopelessly trying. I don't want your help— I'm just writing because I want to. I like to express my feelings— while stabbing someone in the gut. I guess that's gruesome, but I was never taught better. I learned too young we have to fight for what we want. I learned too young success is few, and probably will never hit me. I also learned, I wasn't someone to give up; I was someone trying too hard. I'm someone you will wonder who I am for a split second, then throw me back into that ever growing pile of wannabes. See I'm not here to impress you. I'm just here to write. I don't suspect success— I suspect failure. So I'm not trying to win; I'm trying to live. I'm here writing, so that I can continue breathing. I'm here to make a statement and leave you wondering. So even if you don't ever see this, or you throw it in the trash; I know I spoke my mind. Success is less likely than winning the lottery, but that's why it's worth it—right?

Bad Puns

Injustice is many things, but above all it's an injustice to let a bad pun escape your lips. You can do better than a bad pun people. And I must admit I'm not only a victim to this injustice, but a perpetrator too. There is not one person in the world who has never let a joke or pun escape their lips. You might be in history class and you say, "My dream is to open a photo processing store in a developing country" (Justbadpuns). You could even say that in a photography class. All I'm trying to say is the injustice of bad puns will never end. We can't stop the natural flow of time, neither can we stop the natural flow of puns. Sure you can subdue it by not saying any of them, but eventually you'll hear one and you won't be able to refuse muttering it again. So let's all continue on being the victim of bad puns, we can't do anything about it anyway.

Take one line from every poem you've written and create a whole new one using the lines you've chosen. See what you come up with...
Written by Snowshoerabbit in portal Poetry & Free Verse

Demons

You made me a demon

From a wound long open

You realize

And my memories

Skeletons of trees

What we see

Growing in size

Sweet like sugar

Lost in space

We were the ones being judged

They care too much

You touch the mirror and they do too

The fast cars

A lie

And I guess you're right

Has finally come for revenge

Even if that means nothing

When all of them are wrong

Goes their dinner

In what I'm writing

We all use controls

Life as you knew it

Cover her skin

That is completely real

Yet I'm still typing

Surrounds your lies

That a right number

And get rid of this lie

So laugh at my face

Grow out of sight

And you are as stupid

And diabetes and more

And some twitch or look away

A world of pollution

I have a pen name

I don't give a name anyway

What did I do?

Judging me

Even if I'm not

That was ever true to us

Well once you realize

There is nothing left to say

A figment of my imagination

We all just needed hope

So I thank all of you

You only really chose to help me

And neither one

And I will turn you in

And no one wonders where you are

And I hope you all live to grow old

That better days are

Guess what I forgive you.

Let me explain:

I took all of these from my poem book Demons and it was rough. Each line is the exact line in that one poem or the closest line to it. Each line is from a different poem. It isn't supposed to make sense.

Grab a pen. Now jot the first thing that crosses your mind--BACKWARDS! This shall now be the heart (5th line) of your new 9 line micropoem.
Written by Snowshoerabbit in portal Micropoetry

Comprehend

I threw out logic long ago

And replaced it with words plentiful

Who said I needed logic

I have never heard such a thing

Comprehending comprehend can't I

I don't even know what I'm saying

I try to ignore words now

Logic makes everything confusing

And I would rather not have that.

Love is overrated; write something about hate.
Written by Snowshoerabbit

Hate

Hate

Such a strong word

To truly hate something is rare

I used to say I hated this one person

Now I just nearly pity them

For no one seems to like them now.

There was this other person

I couldn't stand her

She was absolutely terrible

But still not deserving

Of the word hatred.

I think I'll know it

When I hate someone

There will be a feeling in my gut

And I'll want to stab them every day

But I won't.

I might even learn all about them

To give me a reason not to hate them

Because what is the purpose of hating

Why can't I just dislike them

Maybe there isn't a purpose.

The other thing is

If someone is being rude

It's true that they aren't doing it for joy

Nobody is that sick

Naturally.

So I don't think you should be so cool

And toss around the word hate

I might sound like a five-year-old

But I'm mature enough to say

Don't give them ammo, keep it in.

Push Away

"Don't let me go, I will always have your back, please don't let me go," Sarah said as she faded into the distance.

That was the actual name of my imaginary friend when I was younger.

According to a 2017 study done by me, stardustfalling (PhD in imagination, depression, and depressing poetry), "I'm fine" is the most commonly told lie in the world. Write about it, in any format you choose.
Written by Snowshoerabbit in portal Stream of Consciousness

Poison

Honestly I agree it's easiest to say I'm fine when you don't want to speak. I do it more often then I would like to believe. If you ask me how I am "I'm fine" or "good" is what I will say. To me those two just mean I'm still hear aren't I? Honestly what do people expect when they ask someone how are you, do you expect a long conversation about their terrible life, no you just want a simple less than five syllable answer. There is no point in elaborating because if you do then someone might know too much. Even with our friends we lie because who's to say they won't turn away from you, you don't want them having all your poisons. My friends in my opinion already know too much. So yeah that's why I just say, "I'm fine" because I'd rather not tell you my life story.
