Figured I would try my hand at some poetry since I’ve been reading poetry blogs all day. What do you think america should I stick with pros and leave the poetry to the romantics?
The way the ship lay still and dank
will remind you of the day it sank
the people astir all over the boat
praying and praying that it will float
The sounds of the people wailing and screaming
praying and praying that they are only dreaming
As she sank they ran to the stern
they now know the lesson to learn
Don’t be consumed with wealth or gold
for the grim reaper comes for the meek and the bold
Then you feel the water rise
floating there your body dies
Then you are merely a soul
forever more paying the grim reapers toll
I this is your first poem, I am impressed. This is something you should continue. Hugs, Barbara
I’ve only read the first post and I’ve got to say it sounds as if you’re speaking from experience like you were one of the unfortunate passengers. Why didn’t anyone try to bail it out, or something?
I know you haven’t read my poetry – romantic it ain’t… 🙂
I like it a lot …keep going if you have the words let them out.
That was brilliant! Very, at least I think, Edgar Allan Poe, and I love that.
Poetry is not only for the romantic. I have not a romantic bone in my body. Good poetry. Thanks for following me. I only have 19 followers. Btw, sounds like your life should be a movie. Stay strong.
man I would love that money check
I hear that. I just want to be a famous poet-at least before I die. 🙂
Are you sure this is your first time? This was a very nice write!
Great poem, keep going!
Enjoyed it! Poetry isn’t just romantic, sappy, or flat words on a page for that matter. It’s about life, living, feeling, painting an image or telling a story from your perspective and you’ve done that in this piece well. So write about anything that you feel strongly about but just keep writing! 🙂
Keep going! This one was great! 🙂
My poetry is rarely romantic! Keep at it!
I normally don’t relish poetry (working on that) but this was great to read! Keep it up!
Nicely written. Very atmospheric.
Nice poem! 🙂
