amanda's random school poetry.

Post by amanda-renee on Thu 22 Nov 2007, 4:18 pm

hey guys i thought i'd type out some poems i wrote during my schooling years, about a different series of random events throughout my life i hope you enjoy them.

SEASONS:
the sun rises in the morning,
the sky is perfect blue,
there isn't a single cloud in site,
the birds are flying over you.
all the flowers are blooming,
spring is in the air,
everyone is so loving,
everyone seems to care.
boy's and girls are playing,
in the summer sun,
everyone is busily laughing,
and having lots of fun.
it's starting to get a little colder,
the leaves are falling down,
everyones feeling a little depressed,
everyone's starting to frown.
then the snow starts falling,
from the skies above,
everyones out skiing,
wearing big coats and gloves.
another year is over now,
birds begin to sing,
because now winters over,
and were back to spring.

THINKING OF YOU.

i wake every morning,
and wish you were here,
i sleep every night,
and shed all my tears.
i know i was the one,
who gave you away,
but now i want you back,
in my arms to stay.
i write your name,
almost a thousand times,
i write you the poems, pictures
and rhymes.
when i'm around you,
i act like a clown,
even if it hurts inside,
and makes me feel down.
i only hope one day,
that my wish will come true,
to hold you in my arms as a lover,
and not only a friend.

written 17/3/1996 about ex boyfriend darren (totally over that now haha)

THE MYSTERIES OF THUNDER

i was walking through the park,
the thunder bagan to roar,
and it got me thinking,
about something i never thought of before.
why does lightning flash?
why does the rain fall?
this is so mysterious,
whats the meaning of it all?
once a wise man told me,
it's just the way they talk,
so don't be affraid of the noise,
just continue with your walk.
the lightning talks by flashing,
and the thunder grumbles back,
it;s just the way they communicate,
so what's so mysterious about that?
it's the thought of angels flying,
way beyond the clouds,
but where do they go?
when there's no clouds around.
all of these mysteries,
i don't hardly know,
do you think the wise man was telling the truth?
i truely believe so.

IT'S HAPPENED EVERY YEAR

it's happened every year from year 7 to year 10,
and your never gonna guess but it's happened yet again,
we were just sitting around and you were acting smart,
the once again youv'e come and jump started my heart.
it's happened every year from year 7 to year 10,
you have always like me time and time again,
but we never made anything of it our timing was always off,
but this time i feeling lucky sort of.
now i should tell you exactly how i feel,
after all you told me and i thought this can't be real.
you made the wrong choice in the begining between me and a friend,
but now you want something to come of a mistake you made in the end.
it's a shame we are alike in oh so many ways,
but now iv'e got the feeling i'd like to be your's always.
if my dream keeps occuring or you and me together,
surely that must mean i want to be yours forever.
so thats the end of my poem and i hope my wish comes true,
that ifinally might get the chance to finally be with you.

SO FAR AWAY.

i see you smiling,
and i smile to,
your looking at me,
and i'm looking at you,
i stroke your chin,
you brush my ear,
i'm holding onto you,
even though your not near,
i let you go,
i walk away,
but you don't move,
you just stay,
i turn around,
and your still there,
you havn't moved,
it's like you don't care,
so i hold you again,
and remember why,
your still as you are,
and it makes me cry,
i know someday you'll hold me,
but just not today,
cause i'm holding a photograph,
of someone, so far away.

written 3/2/1997 can't remember who i wrote this about but it sends chills down my spine for how convieniently real it is at the moment.

MEMORIES OF YOU

i feel your arms around me,
i feel you touch my hair,
i feel your breath upon me,
even though your not there.
i love the way you care,
the way you treat me kind,
i can hear those gentle words,
echoing in my mind.
you promised you'd never leave me,
that promise i thought was true,
then you walked out the door,
i tried to believe in you.
you walked out of my life,
you left me standing still,
your world will go on turning,
but mine never will.

PAINTBOX OF LIFE

red is for love,
while blue is for sorrow,
i feel one today and the other tomorrow.
happy is yellow,
envy is green,
is it wrong to be happy? is jealousy mean?
pink is for passion,
while hatred is black,
feeling so good and then needing the attack.
purple is for royalty,
orange i don't really know,
who really cares as colours are just so.

WHY?

why is there hate,
why is there love,
why does rain fall,
frm the heavens above.
why is there black,
why is there white,
why does day,
turn into night.
why is there peace,
why is there war,
why does our anger,
keep building up more.
why is ther fat,
why is there thin,
why are there people,
who just dont fit in.
why do we want,
why do we need,
why can a man,
live without greed.
why do we die,
why do we live,
why can man,
learn how to forgive.
why do we sleep,
why do we wake,
why dont we think,
before we take.
why are we cold,
why are we hot,
why do we pretend,
to be someone were not
why dow we laugh,
why do we cry,
why do all questions,
come back to why?

SHATTERED LIKE GLASS

today i got really scared,
i felt like a payne of glass,
and what i thought was a small crack,
shattered all to fast.
everything just got to me,
work, emotions and the unexplained,
but i proved i'm only human,
everyone has a downpour of rain.
i felt very alone,
in my time of need,
although everyone was concerned,
nobody knew what was wrong with me.
i was empty and hollow inside,
a gap between my chest there lyed,
and made me feel like i was a ghost,
but had nowhere to run or hide.
i felt very naked and exposed,
which raised one of my biggest fears,
my nervouseness was brought out,
and caused all my flowing tears,
my emotional episode is now over,
my payne of glass reframed,
just waiting for another crack,
to come and shatter me once again.

written 10/2/2002 (i broke down a little after my dad died probley because i never had the opportunity to say goodbye he was there one minute and gone the next i'm ok now still hard at times but i think i'm a lot stronger now)

100% LOVE FOR YOU.

10% of the times i smile, i smile because of you
20% of the poems i write, are poems i write for you
30% of my niggling jokes are jokes i make with you
40% of the nights i sleep are nights spent dreaming of you.
50% of the songs i sing are songs i sing to you.
60% of the times i ring i ring to talk to you.
70% of the lies i tell are lies to cover my feelings for you.
80% of the things i buy are things that are brought for you.
90% of the times i think is spent thinking of you
and 100% of the work i do is not about the work but spending time with you.

written 9/3/2001 (about chris the 3rd who i still work with which makes it difficult as we have broken up with each other and we have to see each other everyday)

SNACK TIME

i was watching the 8.00 o'clock movie,
and decided to gather a snack,
when someone came up behind me,
and stabbed me in the back,
bloodberry topping on icecream,
guts on chocolate cake,
just the way i like it,
to bad the knife was fake.

written when i was in year 5 at primary school for halloween assembly, i won an award for this one.

CRY ON MY SHOULDER

come cry on my shoulder for a while,
tell me your darkest fears,
being alone isn't a problem,
you know i'll always be here.
come cry on my shoulder for a while,
tell me everything thats gone wrong,
if you come to me for help,
i promise the problem will be erased (poof) gone.
come cry on my shoulder for a while,
you know i won't judge or fight,
i'll listen to what you have to say,
be supportive give you a hug and say goodnight.
come cry on my shoulder for a while,
you know my friendship is forever true,
because if i every wanted anyone to cry on my shoulder,
that person would always be you.

written about my best friend phuong who also went through her share of emotional drama. don't have a date for this one though. but i'm guessin about the year 2000 or so.

Isn't she just?!

Okay here is my dodgy Year 7 poem that I don't really remember writing, or why etc but I think this is how it goes...

My eyes glance in the mirror
I pick up what they see
Another boy is there
And he's looking back at me
He wants to tell me something
But I don't want to hear
He hurt me once too often
I can't let him come near
He tries again to reach me
But you see, he's in the past
All the pain and hurt is now with him
Safely trapped behind the glass
