Vomit Poetry Challenge [Day 6]: if you see a crocodile don’t forget to scream

30-Day Vomit Poetry Challenge: Day 6. No stops, no deletes, no edits–just write and keep writing. Publish as it is. (I wrote this last night and forgot to publish it yesterday.)

And honestly I have no idea where this poem came from.

row, row, row your boat
gently down the street
if you see a crocodile
don’t forget to scream

scream your lungs out
the glistening reptiles shall dance to your heartbeat
the elongated nightmare, slithering logs
with glistening scales, yellow slits
glowing eerie in the dark

here it is, the swimming urban legend
coming towards you in myth’s river
you cringe, you shake, your soul aquiver

if you see a crocodile
don’t forget to, don’t forget to

the undead (rap?)

there’s always a reason to walk again, to live, to defy

in fact, I thought about this right before I died

if only to see you again, to have you by my side

now that I’m awake again, I am finally alive

the rules of the living I no longer need to abide

we can transcend reality, have our two worlds collide

though my bones are broken; my flesh is dry

but my love for you will never subside

I am yours forever, my sweet love, my dearest, my bride

we’ll get through this together, we’ll rise above the tides

so wipe your tears from your eyes, dear,

and watch me kiss death good-bye

So originally, I thought to myself: why not try writing a rap song? And then I thought: why not write a rap about zombies? But somehow I never got past that first stanza, so I’m dubbing it a poem.

And this is one of the rare moments that you’ll see me rhyme–just experimenting with something I’m unfamiliar with.

Having that said, you’ll probably never see me rhyme again, haha.

(Sorry guys…I tried my best…but my music player won’t go into silent mode *sob* so just click that little pause button on the ipod!! <3)

(And yep, I composed the piano part, too :D)

I tried to hold your hand last night

There was this strange light by your side

You told me not to cry

But it was useless my tears hadn’t been kind

.

And then there was wind

And then there was fire

And then sun sets in your eyes

.

I tried to hold on tight last night

There was this strange light by your side

You told me it’s okay it’s alright

But it wasn’t alright

How could I let you let by?

.

And then there was wind

And then there was fire

And then the sun sets in your eyes

.

Don’t go yet

I’m not finished with you

Don’t go just yet

It’s not the time to

Don’t go yet because I–

Because I–

Because…

.

I tried to hold your hand last night

There was this strange light by your side

You told me not to cry

You told me not to cry

Untitled Chinese Song Lyrics…未命名

I totally forgot that I wrote this! From now on, I’m just going to stick to one blog. Why did I create a poetry blog in the first place?????????????????????????????? Hm.

Here goes. It’s supposed to be a song…need to write the music for it soon. Recently I’m trying to finish this book Conversations with God: An Uncommon Dialogue by Neale Donald Walsch. It’s really inspiring. Anyways.

.

你的身影 隱藏在琴鍵之間

黑白相間 依附在我指尖

輕輕喚 輕輕願

空氣中已消逝的音樂

依然在我的耳邊迴旋

.

一遍一遍 在彈奏一遍

你臨走之前 響起的離別曲

它退了色 變了調 走了音

支離破碎 曲不成曲

.

眼睛痛了 再也睜不開了

那是因為 再也見不著你

輕輕嘆 輕輕戀

你胸腔中已逝去的心跳

依然在我的脈搏中顫動

.

一次一次 再夢見你一次

唯有用這種無可救藥的方式

來回憶你 召喚你 留住你

我才能夠 能夠呼吸

Soon

For my creative writing’s final exam (take-home portion): which is to write a song…with restrictions. As much as I’d complained beforehand, things got easier when I became inspired. I got it done in a few hours or so…didn’t really look at the time. I never do when I’m writing…sigh…like right now because I should really go to sleep because I have to work tomorrow…oh and my birthday is officially over! It’s 12:14 April 18th. Well. I ended up not studying for finals…I am now behind my schedule. But anyways. It’s my birthday…right? One deserves a little break.

Ok I should just stop babbling. Here’s my song, which is about the end of the world…since my thoughts are surrounded with darkness these days.

Soon

The angel’s feathers turning into dust

The hellfire burning in our eyes

The darkest light comes from the brightest sun

We are surrounded by the truest lies

.

It’s becoming thinner, this air

The Gods will leave no heir

The stars glow with our fears

The last shield will soon shatter

If nothing we do matters, then

We’ll blink twice, and hope for a second universe

.

Those wings no longer shield us

We refuse to hear them, though they still hear us

We’ve grown too pompous, have lost all focus

We rely on our strengths, but that becomes our weakness

.

It’s becoming thinner, this air

The Gods will leave no heir

The stars glow with our fears

The last shield will soon shatter

If nothing we do matters, then

We’ll blink twice, and hope for a second universe

.

Save

Save yourselves

Save

Save yourselves

.

It’s becoming thinner, this air

The Gods will leave no heir

The stars glow with our fears

The last shield will soon shatter

If nothing we do matters, then

We’ll blink twice, and hope for a second universe
