RPF Poetry Club

The Thread

Okay, gonna set a few things straight. I made this thread because I had an idea for something, but I didn't think it warranted an entire thread, and then I thought a thread just for poetry in general would be nice and - well, yeah.

This is a place for the poets of RPF to share writings, ideas, ask for advice, collaborate, and give each other challenges!

That last bit is important, because that's part of the reason I made this thread. I have a challenge.

The Challenge

Do you know Doki Doki Literature Club? If so, great! The challenge is to write a poem in the style of each of the girls.
Alone she drifts from ancient mists
Nary a candle, nary a wish
But in the wont of wandering paths
Through wooded knolls, and windworn crags
She seeks a face she thought as friend
But now -- she thinks as judgement's end

Afraid

The Blood of hate stains my hands
But it is only a reflection.
I am the object of their hate,
Their reason.
I reach for your gentle hand,
but I can no longer grasp it.
Swallowed by my own fear,
Loneliness,
I lose all grip on reality.
I fall deeper into darkness.
I cannot get out,
I cannot free myself.
I yell out your name,
but my voice is drowned out by my thoughts,
welcoming the darkness.
As soon as I lose hope,
You are there to guide me back from the darkness.

They are fighting again.
Two sides fighting over me.
I look to my hands,
seeing the reflection of hate once more.
I scream out for peace...
They only mock me and lock me away.
From my glass cage,
I watch the world around me.
I want to be a part of the world,
but they look at me like a freak.
Is there something wrong with me?
Or is there something wrong with the world?
Afraid to speak,
Afraid to be.

Very nice!
Alone she drifts from ancient mists
Nary a candle, nary a wish
But in the wont of wandering paths
Through wooded knolls, and windworn crags
She seeks a face she thought as friend
But now -- she thinks as judgement's end

Does anyone have any pieces they want to share, just in general? It would be fun to talk about inspirations and meanings behind certain works~

Alone
ImageImage
As I sit here...
Waiting for the song to end,
I think about everything I went through.
How could I still be living?
The pain, the tears...
The hate, the blood.
How could I have been so stupid?
I shouldn't trust anyone.
That's the mistake I made.
The more I trust,
The more the pain comes...
The more I live,
The more the hate burns.
I can no longer see my path,
Blinded by tears and blood.
I reach my hand out to feel for anyone...
Anything...
No one is there.
I am alone.
Please do not leave me here to die..
I don't want to die alone...

The start is reminiscent of Waiting for the End by Linkin Park, to me.
Alone she drifts from ancient mists
Nary a candle, nary a wish

The roses have wilted, the violets are dead. The sugar bowl is empty, and so is your head.

I am not a poet, and know next to nothing about poetry. But hey. XD

I reach for silk
It slips between
My fingertips - to catch a dream
Is never miss
So from this bliss
I ask - I beg for hope to wean
A soft embrace
Around my wrist
The gentle touch - and longing kiss
But in my fist
Is only faith
I catch my dream - a simple scene
But lose all chance of grace
Alone she drifts from ancient mists
Nary a candle, nary a wish
But in the wont of wandering paths
Through wooded knolls, and windworn crags
She seeks a face she thought as friend
But now -- she thinks as judgement's end
