• Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.

    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

Dragonheart's Poems!

DragonHeart

The Heir of Dragons
Okay I write a lot of poems, usually out of sudden and random inspiration. So I figured instead of making a seperate thread for each one, I would just put them all on one thread. I will add more eventually but so far I have these:
I Am Sadness:

I am sadness
Tall and foreboding
I move slow and silent, like a freezing winter breeze
I have pale skin
and hair that looks as though it were spun from the shadows
I never speak
I only whisper
I am sadness
unwanted
unloved
unneeded
I hide silently around every corner.
Every road.
Every path.
I am sadness.
Under every stair.
In every wind.
I lurk in shadows and alleys.
Waiting.
For someone to turn my corner.
I am sadness.
Under every stair.
In every wind.
I haunt every heart,
Every soul.
I may be dispelled.
But I always come creeping back.


The Battle Of The Elements

Dragon of ice and snow
Dragon of a flaming inferno
they screech and roar
flashing claws, and slicing fangs
one of flame
one of ice
a screaming, roaring, flashing battle
of red and white
they lash and pierce
blood stains the ground
they scorch and freeze
"oh they are so fierce"
into the night they duel
a screaming, roaring battle
of red and white
blood stains the ground
until one has found
that victory has been claimed



Violet
Looks like a dark shadow
Sounds like a howling wind
tastes like sweet taffy
smells like the breez over a frozen lake
feels like warm, deep water

Fear
Feels like a cold gripping wind
looks like a shadowy figure at the end of an ally
smells like a bitter un-ripe apple
tastes like a sour cherry
sounds like a whisper
that becomes a shriek​

It's actually got a great rhythm and beat; in some areas, I was going to say "use more vivid language," but y'know, it'd screw with the flow of the poem... I think it would help, though, to consider commas here or there. It's a bit direct otherwise, and it'd make the beat even better.

:) thanks for the tips! I will see what I can do to make it better!

EDIT: I had to fix it, I realized it annoys the crap out of me when poems are'nt centered!
