    A short one I wrote when I was bored...


    Candles of the Final Apocalypse

    Light the candles, burn the wax
    Burn the arsenic encased inside
    Smell the lingering death seeping in
    Crawling into your lungs, burning
    Burning like your last memory of death
    The candles burn, and your breath will cease

    All hail! Demons arise!
    Come forth to do my bidding
    The war begins, the apocalypse of fire and steel
    Spinning in the wind, a force of raging curses

    The candles blaze, brighter now
    Green fires awaiting the souls of the tormented
    The guardian lies dead, slain by arsenic
    Fires soar higher, towards the distant skies
    Resist the power that controls your poisoned mind!
    Your days have long since ended, you spirit torn and smashed!

    And still the demons scream
    Tearing through their prison
    Roaring into the dead night

    Flaming candles
    Murderer of the guardian
    Sole witness of the final apocalypse

    I'd like to see what you could come up with if you actually were into it instead of just bored!:)

    Actually I happened to be browsing another forum and they had a poetry section, so I just made up that poem on the spot. Hard to believe, isn't it? :)
    But when I get some time I'll try writing something good, when I'm in the mood for it that is.

    All right, got some. Hope you like it, I've done two, which contrast in different ways.

    End of the World

    On the day the last tree died
    The fires of eternal candles shuddered
    As the day of judgement dawned
    The claws of the first liche stretched into desperation
    And the walls of ice rose to claim
    What remained

    There was no one left to see, this day of judgement
    No one alive
    The skull of a long-dead human turned over in its grave
    Disturb not the dust, its spirit whispered,
    for the resting place of a thousand voices
    a thousand screams
    a thousand murders
    Souls trapped in a spinning haze, a balck vortex of non-being
    Freed from life, trapped by death

    Where were you when it happened?
    Your soul extinguished, a half-step into the afterlife -
    Caught in between, as the blazing sun caught your eyes
    The sight of the end of the world
    The gateway of fire
    A second world slowly emerging to replace the old

    Then, when it had finished
    You had no eyes
    You did not exist
    Not in this world, and not in your own imagination

    As you fell from your world and tumbled into oblivion
    A dark vampire took your place
    In the twilight darkness it churned
    And in the glorious sunlight it burned
    When it turned to ash, a demon was born
    It tunnelled through the earth to mate and spawn

    End of the world
    The death of humans, the birth of demons
    It is coming, the final apocalypse
    It is coming for us all

    Eternity

    When I was a stone, you were a fire
    They used you for survival, and me just for ire
    When I was a fire, you were a snake
    They lived in terror of you whilst I kept them awake
    When I was a snake, you were a spear
    They made you a weapon, and I slithered in fear
    When I was a spear, you were a shield
    They all hid behind you and forced me to yield
    When I was a shield, you were an elf
    They threw me away and went to you for themselves
    When I was an elf, you were a dragon
    They looked up at you and left me in a wagon
    When I was a dragon, you were a devil
    They all fled from you, and I sunk to their level
    When I was a devil, you were an angel supreme
    The humans had gone, and we were left in a dream
    And when the dream ended, I found you were gone
    Abandoned forever, wished you'd never been born
    But soon after that, I disappeared too
    Into eternity, where there's just me and you

    Those are really good, I would love to see what you could do if you were more into it. I started mine in the middle of my freshman year, because I wrote one for class.

    I wrote End of the World in the middle of my Chemistry lesson while the teacher wasn't looking :) and it still turned out good...
    I don't actually write poems much, I tend to be more into writing songs.
    In fact I've got another one, it's a short poem I did in five minutes but I might as well post it:

    Waterworld

    Rain won't stop
    Rain won't cease
    Wet, all slimy and trickling down your

    cold

    stone

    face

    You will never see the sun
    For the night shall never end
    The rain is here forever more, illuminates the

    cold

    stone

    stars

    Eclipse of stars
    The stars that will never die
    For the rain shall keep them all alive
    The beginning of the great flood

    cold

    stone

    ship

    Lone boat sailing on through the raging waters

    cold

    stone

    ocean

    Alright, I had some spare time today and got to write a few more, so here goes...


    Death of a Star

    Guardian of the light
    Lament with me
    Your world has collapsed amongst the stars
    Yes, the implosion of your sun

    Your beautiful sun
    Lament the death of your sun
    A core of burning fire past your blinded eyes
    Do you see?
    Do you see?
    Everything must end

    It is the law of the universe, the law of the soul
    Your precious blazing orb is failing
    Even as you watch it die
    Even as I watch you lament
    Everything must end

    Yet I have no sympathy for you or your world
    For I shall be long dead
    A billion years in the grave
    And still I shall be watching

    Watching the death of your sun


    Lost in the feeling of it all

    Six times the clock chimed
    Six times the cock crowed
    Six times the water hissed
    And in deep thought a crimson trickle
    Slithered down the wall
    And onto the pure hand of a dark-haired girl

    She never felt it touch her, never felt the touch of death
    But from that point onwards her mind froze
    She hated and despised
    After being rejected by her lover
    Someone she loved with unmatched passion

    It all ended there
    With the trickle of blood
    Spreading
    Spreading
    Her mind numb, her thoughts irrational
    Spreading
    Spreading

    She was lost in the feeling of it all
    The clock lay smashed in the street
    The cockerel was strangled where it stood
    The water turned to blood and rose up to claim everything

    A gushing wave of total red
    Engulfing the girl and her lover
    But still she never felt anything as she sank into oblivion

    She was lost in the feeling of it all
