Do you have a poem to share? - Undale (ALL POEMS HERE, PLEASE)

Post#801 » Thu May 31, 2012 1:33 pm


Well it's been a while. Some brilliant work here and now for mine though it isn't one of my best.



 



Free At Last



I felt a cold and empty feeling.



As if it was my life, not his, taken.



I did not weep for it was hard to bear,



I tried to forget or at least to ignore.



 



You had left me alone to struggle.



I felt only sorrow; nothing would fade,



Your presence still there, ever haunting,



Driving me to insanity, showing no mercy.



 



I tried to fight it, to keep my senses



But there was just too much that time wouldn’t take.



For you had left me, forever gone,



Taking alongside you my sense of mind and state.



 



You left nothing of me,



Had broken me whole.



No-one could help me,



No-one but you.



 



I decided that I had had enough-



That this life was not for me



And so I left it, let death consume me,



And finally felt eternal peace.



 



Now no more do I need you



For I have my own gentle peace.



I am at rest with no-one to disturb me,



With no-one to hurt me nor to harm me.



 



For now I am nothing but a soul,



A soul alone who needs no-one….



 



----------



 



The flame burns gently against the wick,



Dancing and eating away at it.



It is full of life and of joy



Yet it has no heart of its own.



As its heat radiates away



It starts to fade.



To fade till finally,



The light goes out…..

Dear Lady, you always keep your style. For the sentences I have copied above, I DO REALLY UNDERSTAND THAT FEELING.  These days have been hard but the sun raises everyday and we can stand up every time we fall. Courage!



Go on writing as it helps you to take out all those feelings you probably don't say face to face to anyone. It's a good way to put them on the paper and share them.



Take care.

This isn't exactly a poem but I just thought of it when I heard about my friends mum in Afghanistan falling ill, she sent her here because of all the trouble.



 



If I love you I will be killed



But if I hate you I will die.



Know that you are my reason and my life.



Let it comfort and strengthen you



For I must leave.



If I were to stay they would find me,



It is tearing me, thought of you alone



With no-one to help you while you struggle



But I must leave it and let it be.



Don’t forget this, that no matter what happens,



No matter how far apart we get



I will love you and be with you.



Forever and always,



With love....

It has been two weeks or so, or maybe a bit more, and I thought I'd log in to share some information with all of you guys.



First of all, it has been quite nice to be off once in a while, but I already miss this place.



@ Lady Alyss: I am enjoying of your wordy offerings, and as usually, I'm singing to the rhythm of your words. I hope you'll always keep writing the way you do. Keep it going, my friend!



As the sun rises up to the skies, it sends a wave of sunlight to purify all of the shadows surrounding us..



Golden is it's powerful light.. Full of spirit, magic and trust.



@ Elbereth: Concerning my vocal videos, I haven't done much lately, but I've recorded a few of them, it all just needs some editing and maybe even re-recording in some ways.



There will be videos sooner or later though. As usually, they should be found from my youtube channel (Oerath01).



As for recent works and stuff: These two weeks have went very well, but I haven't been writing that much. It was a part of my overall plan to do so, but I've three news: Tonight, I will start to translate some of my grandfather's poems, I will do a 10-15 numbered collection with a few poems from myself too, written in finnish.



I will also record my first story-telling video today. It's supposed to feature some work of mine, spoken in my low voice. It will be awesome. :)



Also, I've been writing a kind of poetic tale alongside with some darker, short stuff. It's called:



'A Lightless Dream That Became Real (Shadows of Andareth)'



Some of my new lyrical stuff include: 'The Hounds of Darkness', 'A Dead Man's Ring' and 'Rise of Cthulhu'



Those three are possible working titles for future songs.



That should be all for now. Catch ya in a week or two.



- Oerath.

How thrilling, that your grandfather left something wondrous for the world and you will be the one to introduce it to us. What a momentous honor for you.



 



Have a good break dear Otto.

Tadaa! Hullo!



I am not sure is it yet my time to come back, but here I am.



I just wrote my english version of one of my grandfather's poems. He used many old finnish words in his works, which makes it harder to do 'translates', so I had to add bits of my own to this one too. It still stays true to the original version.



He surely had some imagination. Anyway, I'll be here for this evening, but it's soon midsummer, so I'll come officially back due to 25th of this month. With new ideas and new things. Cheers, and have a lovely and (drunky) Midsummer!



 



Winter Evening



Here, I just sit my time.. all alone, it’s a shady winter evening

Moon is my only company and the silver bridge it just created

Those thousand stars that shine in the sky, are they smiling at me?

No.. I don’t think they can even see me, nor acknowledge my existence

Maybe they share their joy and laughter only with others..



Deep is the peace of this winter night

It is so quiet.. there’s just darkness and silence everywhere

A worn and weary man returns from the woods, he has worked ‘till the fall of sun and daylight

And now he would wish to rest and remain silent..



‘The white nature glows like the shimmering light of a silvery pearl’



It’s light aids the ice, it has a power to solder all shores and cliffs together

It’s light tells about the fair winds and about the peace of future

And may that bright and white light shine forever

I believe in it's might, it's so much more than any vision or illusion

Hello all!



First of all, thank you Lady and Leelee for your friendly words. It's fantastic to see that you can someone else's shoulder to hold when you feel a little bit sad. I am fine but full of doubts. I tell you my current days in brief, next month I will quit my job and after the summer holidays in NZ I will move to Germany. I think I can find a good job there easily. On the other side, I will miss my family and feel soooo lonely that I fear this change as much as I wish it! I need it for many reasons indeed. Too long to explain it here openly!



Regarding to the lastest posts here. A friendly caring poem you have written this time Lady. Congratulations again! And Oerath, I knew your talent came from your roots. It's so beautiful that you translate your grandfather's work! It's a tribute you do to him. Clean the dust from those old papers and show them to daylight! Moving.
