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.

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.

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.

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 am Shinigami, the local God of Death.

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
