About Me

!nversed Poignancy!

...I am an eclectic amalgamation of many seemingly paradoxical things. This can be exemplified in both my seemingly endless persistance on many topics and arguments, as well as my careful cautiousness on other topics and arguments. This is largely due to how astute I am of the topic: more knowledge, more persistant; less knowledge, obviously more cautious. I also have times of obsessive compulsions regarding certain things (mostly just my thoughts, however)...

Life and Death

!nversed Poignancy!

Life

An assembly

Possibly impossible

Perfectly interchangeable..

Death

That lives most upright

Beyond the unspoken

Neither a squiggle nor a quibble..

She and Me

!nversed Poignancy!

She

A daffodil

Tyrannizer of me

Breaking the colors of dusk!..

Me

The rising sun

Infringed with violations

The impurity in the salt..

Love and Poetry!

!nversed Poignancy!

Love

A puerile desire

Buried in the heart

Never leaves..

Poetry

Sentimentally melodramatic

Cursively recursive

My thoughts idiotic!

Got it!

I can not talk so well
but I feel I can sing
and I know in my heart
what tomorrow will bring
I am a son of a God
who gave us all this
to play around with

Flying high in the sky
living is so good
don't think about death
try it out my child

If you have been forgotten
and don't know where you belong
don't forget these words
the Earth is given to you
go out and find who ever you meet
don't sit at home and waste your life
get on your feet

Take advantage of every chance
it is to sad
to live this life on your own
find your self a friend
don't be afraid of loosing
if you don't play
you can never win
start today with your new life
and soon you will be able to tell
everything turned out so well
and I am happy again
life is a wonderful game
don't be afraid
start to live
before it is too late

I can not talk so well
but I know what to say to you
and I also feel in my heart
that you will understand the plan
so go on forward
and create and build a new life

My Life..

Scribbled by Bharath C On December 08, 2006 0 Thoughts have been Sprinkled!, Your Take?
Iron doors
and iron bars
I feel that I am on Mars

Heart of stone
but even I
have a home

Keys are swinging
and bells are ringing
I don't feel like singing


My dear I miss you so
but I can not come
the gate is closed

People are screaming
and some cannot stop crying
a few are dying
the hard way
and my escape is in dreaming
and I know they will
never break me
that is the only thing I am certain of

Iron doors
and iron bars
guarded by innocent
guards

Years will go fast
and we can forget the past
soon my love soon
I will be in your arms
and there will never
come any cause
for separating us
and make our love vulnerable
or even make it die
because now I finally understand
that nothing in this world
can replace
lost love

Iron doors
and iron bars
to protect me from myself
and my way of living
my life
Oh baby I would die for you
I am telling you no lies
can't you see that I am
so totally lost in you
and there is nothing I can do
to change my attitude
when I am close to you


Cannot stop
cannot change
cannot let my love go
for you

Oh baby tell me
what you like
I am not holding back
anything for you
just show me the way
to behave
and I will serve you
for the rest of my days
don't you ever fear me
letting you down
I will always be around
doing my best
to keep you safe and warm


Oh baby you are so good
there is nobody close to you
I am telling you the truth
when I say
I love you
in a million ways
don't you feel
everything is alright
when we are falling asleep
holding each other so tight
and that love has grown
through the night

Oh baby there is nothing
like our love
and I pray every day
that it will last
because I have never met
anyone like you
and I will do anything
to keep you happy
as long as you want me
I will be there

Steroid..

Scribbled by Bharath C On October 08, 2006 0 Thoughts have been Sprinkled!, Your Take?
Believe in a big wonderful
strong body
dreaming of perfect triceps
and most of all
a 56cm biceps
don't think about the danger
no use in a mind or brain
as long as he can gain weight
every single day

Russian pills
makes life so complete
steroid head will commit suicide
after a very short while


Running over all the beautiful
young girls
who are working out
at the studio that he likes
to show off his
great latissimus
and wonderful upper chest
a steroid head doesn't
have to rest
because he is always the best

There is only one thing
that is bringing him down
and that is that his balls
have become so incredibly small
and his dick does not work so well
as it used to do
but he doesn't understand
a steroid head has to be ready
on command
so if you want to build
your body
beautiful and strong
so stay away from testosterone
and hormones
that will make your body explode

Believe in a big great
wonderful body
that will make everybody so jealous
and give the impression that he is the very best
to ever get in this life

A quibble..

Scribbled by Bharath C On October 08, 2006 0 Thoughts have been Sprinkled!, Your Take?
It is cool to be clear in your mind
you don't have to fear
getting nothing
in your nose and arm
it has no charm

It is not easy to say no
but you will find out
how high you can go

Spending all your money on nothing
not able to get up early
red eyes and headache
in a shaking body
with a desperate mind
wondering of your next disguise
and how to get the feeling
to rise once again

Telling lies to everyone all day long
thinking only on your meals
and how your body will respond
when the stuff arrives
the center of your brain
sorry my friend
you are on your own way
to destruction

It is cool to be clear in your mind
take my advice
and throw away the bad life
find yourself some new friends
don't take the chance
to see how it ends

It is not easy to say no
to cheap fun
just do it
don't wait
you will soon
end up brain-dead
and at that point
it will be much too late
don't hesitate
stop it now don't wait until
you are filled
with pure hate and anger

"You're a teacher?" she asked. "What kind of students do you have?"

"Smart ones," I answered with a smile.

"Uh... I mean what nationality."

"Mostly Hispanic. Mexican Americans, you know? I actually had to speak Spanish to get my job."

"Oh!"

"Some African Americans."

"Mmm..."

"One American Indian."

"Ah..."

"And a number of Asian Americans."

"Yes, but don't you teach any real Americans?"

Freedom

Scribbled by Bharath C On August 13, 2006 0 Thoughts have been Sprinkled!, Your Take?
Alone, I had escaped. Alone, I was free---almost.

I tunneled until the roof collapsed. Half buried, the moonbeam caught my eye. I jumped up and ran. Sirens wailed. Guns cracked. Dogs howled. I dove into the water. Drifted downstream. Across the border. To freedom!

Still, that other night returns. Knife plunging. Blood staining my hands, my face, my soul.

Alone, freedom eludes me.

Rainbow..

Scribbled by Bharath C On August 08, 2006 0 Thoughts have been Sprinkled!, Your Take?
Don't you want to find
the key to eternal life
reach out for me
and show that you need me
and I will give to you
that what is most wanted
the key to a happy life

It is just an illusion
that you are free
come and see me

This life could be paradise
but we have lost
our will to see and feel
what living is to be
there is no meaning
when we no longer can dream
of something that we don't know
what it is like
we have no sense of the past
I can tell you about everything
but do you want to listen


Under the rainbow
we are all born into life
but there are only a few of us
that are truly living
but we want to help you
to find your lost heart
you just have to turn your life
in another direction
everybody can change
but don't wait
it can be much too late
come and see me and I will
give you victory

Don't you want to find
a way to expand your mind
so you can be able to understand
how to get a real good life
or are you really pleased
with all the misery

Poetry...?

Scribbled by Bharath C On August 06, 2006 0 Thoughts have been Sprinkled!, Your Take?



We'll begin with box, and the plural is boxes,
But the plural of ox should be oxen, not oxes.
Then one fowl is goose, but two are called geese,
Yet the plural of moose should never be meese.
You may find a lone mouse or a whole lot of mice,
But the plural of house is houses, not hice.

If the plural of man is always called men,
Why shouldn't the plural of pan be pen?
The cow in the plural may be cows or kine,
But the plural of vow is vows, not vine.
And I speak of a foot, and you show me your feet,
But I give a boot... would a pair be beet?
If one is a tooth, and a whole set is teeth,
Why shouldn't the plural of booth be beeth?

If the singular is this, and the plural is these,
Why shouldn't the plural of kiss be kese?
Then one may be that, and three be those,
Yet the plural of hat would never be hose.
We speak of a brother, and also of brethren,
But though we say mother, we never say methren.

The masculine pronouns are he, his and him,
But imagine the feminine she, shis, and shim.
So our English, I think you will agree,
Is the trickiest language you ever did see.

I take it you already know
of tough, and bough and cough and dough?
Others may stumble, but not you
on hiccough, through, slough and though.
Well done! And now you wish, perhaps
To learn of less familiar traps?
Beware of heard, a dreadful word
That looks like beard and sounds like bird.
And dead; it's said like bed, not bead!
For goodness sake, don't call it deed!

Watch out for meat and great and threat,
(They rhyme with suite and straight and debt)
A moth is not a moth in mother,
Nor both in bother, broth in brother.
And here is not a match for there,
Nor dear and fear for bear and pear,
And then there's dose and rose and lose –
Just look them up – and goose and choose,
And cork and work and card and ward
And font and front and word and sword.

And do and go, then thwart and cart.
Come, come, I've hardly made a start.
A dreadful language: Why, man alive,
I'd learned to talk when I was five.
And yet to write it, the more I tried,
I hadn't learned it at fifty-five.

[An alternative version quotes the final couplet as:

And yet to write it, the more I sigh,
I'll not learn how 'til the day I die.]

What a fabulous poem! But such a shame no-one knows the author/s. So yes, English is crazy, and we have poems like this to remind us!

me..

Scribbled by Bharath C On July 08, 2006 0 Thoughts have been Sprinkled!, Your Take?
No one is ever going to force me
to change my feelings
and my way of living
I have what I need
and that what I want
I can easily get into my hands
without stealing it from someone


This is my life
you can join me
but never change me
this is my life

Strange people that I don't know
try to put stupid things
into my mind
and the only reason is
that they want me
to live my life just like them
wearing a grey suit and a striped tie
sitting in a house with a big loan
people like them are always
afraid to die

I live my life for real
day by day
there is nothing wrong
in living this way
if you have something to say
tell me now or go away
I am not scared of walking alone
there is always someone
living their lives just like me
so if I have to wait a little time
before I find someone who understands
it does not set me back on line
with the regular clowns
who waste their lives
without love

No one is ever going to force me
to change my heart and mind
just to please their kind because
this is my only life
and I will be the only
master controlling it
and if it ends in a greatdisaster
so what it is my life
isn't it

Gone?

Big hole in my heart
fall in my mind
I feel I never will be able
to find another girl to love
I am shot down
and there is no hope to be found
I have been looking all around
in this town
but you are impossible to find
my future bride
please tell me where you use to hide
so I can get to know you

Help me if you can
my heart is bleeding
I am shot down

No peace in my mind
no peace at all
am I bound to live like this
until my time comes to die
I don't want this to happen to me
but it seems like it is the only way
for a lonesome boy like me
because there is nothing good
coming my way
at least so it seems to be
please little baby
come and rescue me
and save me from my destiny

Big hole in my heart
fall in my mind
is it really like this
that nobody can stop
my blood flowing out and release me
from pain and stop my tears
they come like rain
come on girl and help me
to get rid of the strain and find back
to life again
before everything goes down
and I become insane
or is it really true
that it is too late now
for me
I am not afraid of the darkness
I can feel my heart beating so strong
and all the scary noises
give me so many unexpected choices
I feel I know all the strange voices
and they tell me the truth about life

After midnight
do not go out
if you are afraid
of the night

I breathe in the fresh air
it opens my mind real wide
and let the starlight shine right in
and it also makes me able
to speak with my invisible friend
who is always talking about
what tomorrow will bring
and he also helps me to forget
all my human sins

Flying high on golden promises
never afraid of crashing
into the hard ground
because I have been told
that I will never get old
that is why I am
keeping my mask and driving very fast
because I know in my heart
that I am a master
of the Shining Star

Join me on my tour
and you will be amazed
I can make your dreams be real
just let me take control
over your body and mind
trust me and you will feel how good
it can be
come on and share forever
the starlight with me
don't waste your life on drugs and alcohol
come and feel free

I am not afraid of the darkness
and you should not fear it either my friend
because there is nothing evil
that can ever harm you
as long as you use your mind to understand
what your life could be like
if you were willing to be alive all the time
I am not afraid of anything
neither should you
just say yes to life
and learn what you need

Sorrow..

Scribbled by Bharath C On June 08, 2006 0 Thoughts have been Sprinkled!, Your Take?
I will never forget
what I did not get
your eyes were blue
and so were you
your hair was brown
and it was sure
that you brought me
all the way down

Sorrow sorrow
was all I got
in return

I will never forget
how you always said
come on baby
let's get laid
but your heart turned black
and there is no doubt
that it really set me back

I will never forget
how you kissed me
and always said that you
missed me so much
when we had been apart
your mind was the best
but I can not rest
you sent me away
but I was bound to stay

Sorrow sorrow
was all I got
it is not enough
but I can only blame myself
you gave your best try
and I will love you
and miss you
and dream of you
until the day I die

I will never forget you
because you were the love of my life
but I spoiled every chance
for you to become my wife baby
I am truly sorry
but that is too late now

Lies..

Scribbled by Bharath C On May 08, 2006 0 Thoughts have been Sprinkled!, Your Take?
Lies have a different sound
you have to use your mind
if you want to understand
the meaning of life
and they who want
can follow a plan


Law of Three
Law of Seven
and you will find
heaven

Forget what you have learned
it is not true
there were some men
that would not give up
their power
that is why we
today cannot
find the right way


There is a man
you can believe
he is dead but he
was wise
and he never told
any lies
he knew the way
The Fourth Way
but you must be willing
to forget
that life in the way
we know it
is nothing worth
and the first step
you have to take
is to be aware of
your speech
because what comes out
is not always the truth

And the second step
is to try to remember yourself
and what it feels
like to be awake
and the third step
is to accept
that you are a man
not a super human being
that is above the
48 laws in our world
and the fourth step
is learning how to
see and feel
the important things
we need for fuel in
our machinery
if you understand
something of this
you are on the right course
heading against
The Fourth Way

When and how to use those three dots "..."

These 3 little dots are called "ellipsis". Now these little dots elicited quite a few comments from around the world, as they are almost always used incorrectly. You will see them in magazines, books, on websites, in newsletters, just used randomly.

In defence of our school systems around the world, I must say it's possible that a lot of us were never taught about ellipsis - yes, we were drilled to learn spelling, grammar, punctuation, parts of speech ... but ellipsis? I certainly don't remember ... although ... perhaps it was when I was off school having my appendix removed? :-) Well, that's my excuse!

Helen of UK, Bob of USA, Lee of USA all wrote in to clear this up for us.

When you want to use *...* in emails and letters, there is a rule to follow.

word space dotdotdot space word

An example is, "The door opened slowly ... then she heard the scream!"

When to use 4 dots instead of 3 ....

When the ellipsis is used at the end of a sentence, put four dots, for example:

* "He always wanted to have the last word .... His employees didn't like him at all."

Such a simple thing, but many people forget to put the space on either side of the three dots (fullstops/periods).

As with all things grammatical, different English speaking countries can have different rules [as well as different spelling and pronunciation!], so bear this in mind as you learn on the internet.

Smile..

Scribbled by Bharath C On April 08, 2006 0 Thoughts have been Sprinkled!, Your Take?
When I am sad and feeling down
you can give me the best of time

You are so fine
you are on my mind
smile smile
make it happen

When I am low and want to go
you can make me stay
in a beautiful way

When I am angry feeling like shit
you can kiss me with your soft lips
and make me forget

When I am happy it is all thanks to you
when you smile
there is nothing evil inside of me

You are so fine
you are on my mind
smile smile
you know that I am your man

Smile one more time please
you are the best there is

When I behave like a stupid fool
tell me again about the rules
so we can play and laugh
until we get tired and go to sleep

You got the brightest smile I ever seen
and it makes me feel like I am in a dream
but it is for real
I love your style girl don't let go of you smile

When I am sad and feeling down
there is nothing like having you around
since you bring out the best in me
I can do nothing else but love you
and I hope you can stand my behavior
when I seem to forget you are my savior

When you smile

Fish!

I have become stone cold in my lonely heart
nothing can move me at all
I don't care for anything any more
my feelings are gone with the wind
I am no longer owner of my soul
I know I am going to die in sin
because I let the Devil in

Drifting in the wind
living in sin
drifting in the wind

I have become so never minded these days
yes I am directly blinded
I can not see the way to go
but it does not mean that much
I am not going to stay here very long
I am just waiting for the Gong
to call me to my eternal home

I have become so fearless inside lately
nothing makes me want to cry
I am not afraid to meet the
cross over man
who is going to show me the way
over the finale border line
where I am going to lay down
in the desert sand and die slowly
with a cigarette in my hand
thinking of all the girls
that let me down

I have become the master of my mind finally
and now there is everything to gain
because every pain
has suddenly disappeared into thin air
and I can for the first time in my life see clearly
what I shall do with my life
so I can be free to live like a man
all the time
I have become aware of the real danger inside
and it is passivity

Memories last forever
make a wish
that you will meet someone
that you never can forget
and always keep in mind
that we are leaves
carried by the wind of life
sometimes we are up
and other times
we are so far down

Explore
save
everything you can

Sometimes you feel
that you can not understand
anything at all
but don't waste your time
staying to long in that state of mind
do your best try
to follow the yellow moon
and you will get a good grip on life's
mysterious reality
very very soon

Don't be afraid
to let your feelings float free
it is indeed very easy
you are born to win
not to lose
we are made to live the way
everyone of us find to choose
start today
don't wait any longer
before you know what is going on
it can be too late
to turn around and try it all once again

Memories last forever
you must never forget what to do
so you can be really proud of your life
memories are all
you ever will be able to take with you

Hey there wild child
listen
I have something
that you want
come closer
and I will show you
what I mean
this is not a dream

Look deep into my eyes
open up your mind
listen carefully to the sound
of my voice

Hey there stranded kid
listen
I have something
that you never had before
you are something very special
so you are the chosen one
I am going to give it all to you
I hope you understand this tone

Hey there beautiful human being
listen
I have something that you need
the sound of love
is now floating into your mind
open up and you will feel fine
this is the right time
to be my companion

Hey there lost soul
listen up
I have something useful for you
it will make you able
to speak the pure truth
and live like you never did before
open your mind
and receive the elixir
that will electrify your existence
into eternity

Hey there sedated and bound man
I have the cure just for you
and it is totally for free
just open your mind
and follow me
to see everything
there is for us to use
the way it is meant to be
come on
it is time to live

I am Gone!

Up or down
near or far
in or out
there is no doubt
you don't have to shout

I am going
stop that crying
I am going

Resigned from your life
can you imagine how I feel
I am so glad the wheels
are my property
now I am driving west
and you can forget the rest

Sometimes I wonder
why I stayed so long
maybe I was blinded by your
good cooking
but now it is my turn
to go out looking

Feeling so free
it is easy to be
a man crossing the land
I know I will find myself again
holding a beautiful woman's hand
I have good time to look all around
I don't want to make the same mistake
one more time
I just want to feel fine
it is my life

Up or down
near or far
in or out
there is no doubt anymore
we have lost our love
and I am leaving now
so please stop that crying baby
you are free
and finally so am I
I used to be number one in this town
always creating so much fun
but in present days I am not
the smallest shadow of myself
locked away in this prison cell
not feeling so well

I have done something wrong
and now I have to pay
I am locked away to stay

I used to be free and now I can see
and I feel in my soul what life returns to me
with giving me a second home
that does not come close at all to my own
now I have to live my life alone
in this big cold house of stone

I used to be happy and filled with joy
and all I feel now
is like a scared little boy
afraid of the beast
who is living under my bed
how could it be
that it was me
that had to experience life in this way
why do I have to stay the rest of my days
in this rotten place
which is changing me into an unknown being
that can not understand
the difference between love and hate
I don't know
but time goes

I used to believe that I could do anything
and get away with it
but it is so far from the truth that it
is possible to get
and it is no use for me to regret
I have to stay locked in for a long time
but they must let me out someday
and then I will change my lifestyle radical
and get myself a complete new life
without crime

I used to be number one in this town
and I will be it for sure again
but in a complete different way
that will astound everyone
that once knew my name and reputation
this time I will destroy
the consisting decay
and there will be shown no mercy
Is it really such a long time ago
how nice it is to meet you again
my old friend
how do you feel
have you had some good times
I my-self have thrown away
many good chances

Come on let us find the way
back to that good feeling
it has been gone for so many years

Tell me about your life
do you have a wife
and some beautiful children
or have you been acting
like in the good old days
I my-self have been up and down
in this town

What have you seen
and where have you been
since you left the scene
did you really get to the highest top
in Katmandu
or have you been sleeping in the sand
all this time
I my-self have been all around
in many great lands

What are you saying
can't you remember my name
and that you are in a hurry
and don't have the time to be hanging around
in this boring town
now I remember what happened
we were the best friends
but
I once took your pretty girl
and best friends share everything
except the same girl

Come on let us find back to that good feeling
it is never too late
to forgive an old friend
you must not forget that we were young
and wild
and you did some stupid things too
and I was hurt when it happened
but you seem to forget
that I forgave you everything
so why be so cruel and hard in your heart
telling me that you don't know me at all
anymore

Ahhhh, reflexive pronouns! I was unfortunate to be away from school for quite some time when I was about 10 years old due to a burst appendix, and I missed all these fabulous parts of speech.

I admit that some of them are still tricky for me to get my mind around, because I missed those months of drilling by my teacher with a ruler in her hand. Yes, that's what they used to help us *learn* better! Thank heavens those times have changed ... let's see what we can learn from this lesson in grammar and parts of speech.

Two people wrote in about Reflexive Pronouns :

I myself, You yourself etc

Thank you to Karen Z of Mississauga, Canada [Aug 2001]
and Connie Kozlowski [July 1999]

So many people and newspapers say :

"John, Sue and myself went to the store."


Ouch! This sounds as if someone is trying to be polite and they are not sure about whether to use *I* or *me* ... perhaps with some misguided sense of false modesty.

My suggestion is always this: think how you would say the sentence if you removed the other people from it. For example, would you say the sentence above as:

"Myself went to the store."
I *hope* you wouldn't!
Would you say, "Me went to the store."
No, of course not.
You'd say, "I went to the store."

So it should be, "John, Sue and I went to the store." This is the correct way to say this statement.

Let's look at this sentence again:

"John, Sue and I went to the store."

To make sure it is correct, let's remove John and Sue: and add the word myself [reflexive pronoun]:

"I went to the store myself."

Correct! That's the way it should look AND sound! So now you can remove the word 'myself'.

TIP!


There has to be a noun or pronoun in the subject (in this case "I") before you can refer back to it with a reflexive pronoun, such as :
myself, himself, herself, themselves.

I can hear you thinking, "D'oh? What does *that* mean?".

t means, dear friend, that if you are going to use one of these:

myself, himself, herself, themselves

then you MUST use one of these as well, to match it!

I myself, he himself, she herself, they themselves!!

Time..?

Living in a great land
where democracy is the plan
everybody believes
in the politicians
with their wonderful visions

It is time to stop
and think it all over again
before it goes down the drain

The police are everywhere
and the only things you can do
is to run dope or go on welfare
what has it become
when nobody takes care

Old people are put away
starving to their dying day
young people get no chances
when no schools are being started

Now it is up to you
show the country what you can do
don't listen to the evil voices
make your own choices
and start to build a brand new land
where everybody
can have the same opportunity
to get a good life
don't be afraid
there are many of us around
who feel in our hearts
that now is the time
for something to be done
so you are not alone

Living in a great land
where everything is taken
out of our hands
but we can not give up
because they are really weak
and we are strong
and we have to go on

The way..

Scribbled by Bharath C On February 08, 2006 0 Thoughts have been Sprinkled!, Your Take?
All the way to nowhere
for no reason at all
misguided a long time ago
because somebody
did not want us to know
that there was a meaning
in the way of living
as human beings

Where did we turn wrong
why did they lie
when will we understand

We are born to die
because we have forgotten
how to live our life normally
and how to understand
everything that we see
we can compare ourselves
with fish in a fish tank
because we can not
find the way out of misery
our memory is blank
but deep inside
maybe something could be found

What can we do with this problem
I will try to tell you
you have to break the mirror
so you can see and understand
what life is like
at the other side of the big lie
and with this I mean
that you have to set your mind free
and start to think in a brand new way
and then you will be able to find out
how to live and feel
like in the beginning of time
when everything was fine

All the lonesome way to nowhere
without any map to guide
along the dangerous track
they tell us all to walk upon

Wars..

Scribbled by Bharath C On February 08, 2006 0 Thoughts have been Sprinkled!, Your Take?
All this war almost everywhere you look
that is going on and on
and all they can gain
is to set us back in time
with no future left
to dream about

The Earth is turning
and the blood is drying
stop this burning fire

All this talk about peace
and the rising taxes
and the only way they want
to use the money
is more powerful weapons
and greater plans
with deadly intentions
who is responsible for this chaos
one thing is sure
we are all a little bit guilty

Start using your senses
and get rid of the crazy men
who are sitting in their leather chairs
spreading out all this fear
don't be afraid
you have the right to set the people free
start up now
it will be very easy
it will be too late when they stab you in the back
one more time with their lies
you are not alone
come on come on
it is time
we have to get rid of the crazy men
before they get rid of us

All this crazy war almost everywhere in the world
when will we stop producing
mines guns aerocrafts tanks bombs warships rockets
and when will we stop selling
what we already got in our overfilled stores
so we finally can get some peace

Colors..

Long time ago
we were childhood friends
we spent nights and days
trying to break away
and we had a lot of crazy fun

You have to know
with dope
there is no hope

We took all the chances
and had many
great romances
until we met the Dragon Lady

We got older
but we did not get wiser
soon no one of us
could be trusted
because we denied to learn
from our mistakes

We got separated
and one day I heard that you
had tried to fly like a dream-bird
but you crashed down into
the hard and waiting ground
beside the public toilet seat

Then I found out
what this life is about
and I am telling you this now
you got to know
with Dope
there is no hope
no hope at all

Long time ago
we were the best friends
but it all came to a very cruel end
you died with a dirty needle in your arm
and there was nothing I could do
to save you



  1. What do you want to write a poem about? For our example poem, we'll write about a country called Djbouti.
  2. Begin your opening paragraph for your poem. For example: "Off the coast of Africa, Is a country that exports no paprika. No cows, no geese, no flocks of sheep, Djibouti's income is rather cheap."
  3. Continue into your moral of the story, if there is one. If not, just continue on explaining about it. "If you go to Dijibouti, don't expect to find much water. For from there and here, it is much hotter! Don't look for a creek with a river otter, 'cuz you won't find it, not when there's no water!
  4. Something not to do? Keep repeating!! You usuallly shouldn'treuse a word in one stanza. But, if you look at the example above, you will see that I used 'water' twice and it sounded OK. So use your best judgement. And don't keep on going and going with words that rhyme. It's great to rhyme for a little while, but then you need to move on to the next stanza and start a new set of rhyming words. For example: "Do not go to Djibouti, If you're looking for a booty. For if you look up Djbouti, In a very nice big muti, You will find that Djbouti, While looking in a muti, is not a place to go to find your booty.


Tips

  • If you're writing poems for kids, make them rhyme. If you are writing a poem that doesn't rhyme, make sure it flows well.


Warnings

  • Don't make your poem too long, and don't make it too short.

Lol

Clearly I remember
we belonged together
how could I ever forget
that you loved me


Long long time ago
I was a boy in love
and I threw it all away
just because I wanted to play

Spending most of the time
just running around
and around
wishing I could set the time
back to those wonderful days

Many years have gone
but every night I
have the same dream
holding you tight
waiting for the morning light

Wondering what you
feel for me today
would you be shocked
if I came to your door
and asked you to let me in
don't be afraid
it will never happen
because I don't dare to do it
afraid of loosing
my dream

If you understand
what I am talking about
don't stay at home
go out and find and fight
for your lost love
don't wait for a man
who is too afraid
that he should lose his face
if he ever came close
to you again
it is not a shame
to take the first step
and to try
to make it work again


Clearly I remember
we belonged together
how could I ever believe
that I would forget
someone like you
my only love
Why does it have to be like this
do you really want your life to go on
fighting every day to make ends meet
don't you want to find out
how to use your imagination
and point out your direction
to another dimension

Free your mind
take the time
do it now

Close both your eyes and rest your thoughts
your mind will open up the third eye
and you will clearly see
how everything will be instantly
just listen to my advise
and you will soon get
many wonderful surprises

Are you ready to receive
all that free floating energy
if you want you can
start to build a triangle figure
not as big as a pyramid
just the shape to cover your bed
where you will be laying tuning in
the most powerful vibrations
that will bring your life into a state of mind
where you will be able to understand
the way of life to all of mankind

You are now starting to learn
and the most important thing you have to do
is to slow down your thoughts
about every day life in the way you know it
you have to begin from scratch
but don't you worry
your brain will show you what to do
it might take a little while before you fully understand
what is beginning to happen
you will earn so much from this so you must be
willing to spend some time
traveling around in your mind
before you can be able to find out what living is about

Open..

Scribbled by Bharath C On January 08, 2006 0 Thoughts have been Sprinkled!, Your Take?
Don't let them use you
they are no real friends
always wanting to borrow
and pay back
only with sorrow

Open your eyes
don't let them make
you bleed
hit back and run
for cover

Don't believe in
their greasy smiles
they just want to
suck you clean
don't believe
in their smooth talking
in the end it is you
who walks away alone


Don't trust them
with your heart
the day you may need them
you can only expect
a stab from behind
in the dark
without any kind
of warning

Don't try to understand them
they are only pretending to be
such great caring friends
in daily life
you can only depend
on your self
stay away from people like them
find some good friends
and start to live again
be smart and do it today
before it is too late
to recover
from too much sorrow


Don't try to deny
to yourself
that you got some
bad friends
and don't hesitate
get rid of them very soon
because maybe you will lose
the faith in future friends
if you let them continue
treating you
like a shabby street dog
without any home


Don't let them abuse you
with making you look narrow
while they stand laughing
hiding in the shadow
of real friendship
the time has come for you
to understand what is going on
open your eyes

Give it!

Scribbled by Bharath C On January 08, 2006 0 Thoughts have been Sprinkled!, Your Take?
Give it to me very soon
show it to me gently
tell it to me today
don't hide it inside
prove that you
love me

I feel it I feel it
give it to me
I need it I need it

Put it on paper
send it in a letter
let the mailman
deliver it to me
the message that you
love me

Let your best friend
come to tell
those words I need to hear
send her over to my place
to ring on my door bell
and she can whisper into my ear
that you care and that you
love me

Call me on the telephone
and tell me that I am the one
ask me to come over
so that I can become your lover
and show that I am
in love with you
come on baby
you know my number
don't be too shy
today is the day to try
prove that you
love me

Give it to me very soon
show me that you want me
and I will be there instantly
just for you

Passed or Past?

I've had LOTS of requests for info on these confusing words, so I do hope this clears up any confusion!

* If you PASS [drive by] a car on the freeway, you've PASSED it. [past tense of *to pass*]

* A Parliamentary motion is PASSED. [past tense of *to pass*]

* A Parliamentary motion is being discussed - the Parliament wants to PASS the motion. [present tense of *to pass*]

* The shop is PAST [beyond] the corner.

TIP: *PAST* the corner is not a form of *to pass*, hence is spelled differently.

TIP: *PASSED* is the past tense of *to pass*.

VERB: TO PASS:

Present Tense:
I pass
You pass
He/she passes
They pass
We pass

Past Tense:
I passed
You passed
He/she passed
They passed
We passed

Make sense now? I hope so!
