I have no where to go, after I lost my dearest love.

Deep inside,

Under the dark void. 
I wandered aimlessly,
Through the scar of pain. 
The memory portrayed,
 The silhouette on the lost way. 
The hope was swallowed,
When I saw my face,
The contorted visage of misery. 
 You said that you could have stayed,
When you kissed me one last time at the doorway. 
So why you ran away,
Leaving me there to stay.
Staying for the lost hope,
When there are nothing more for me to hold. 
The landlady said that you didn't stay,
But I smelled the perfume that you had sprayed. 
The vanilla of your favorite. 
 I cried in pain,
Wishing that you were there,
Smiling like everything was okay. 
But I still cried in vain, 
 Cuz you were gone,
And there was nothing left to stay. 
 Nothing left to stay. 
 Please tell me that you did have stayed,
Cuz I was crying in pain,
And I didn't know that how could I take,
  The sorrow within my vein.

This is so beautiful and well written. It was kind of creepy reading because it went so well with the song i'm listening. Loved it though. Great Job.

Thank you soooo much. I'm so happy that it can be fitted in with songs.

Making use of references to recognizably real-life observations (i.e. the vanilla scent, the landlady, etc.) was a good move, and setting them in the poem gave the piece a sense of depth because you allow the reader to understand particular experiences (i.e. the kiss at the doorway). While it is still a bit lacking grammatically-speaking, I feel that your poem has potential, and I think would double as lyrics for a song if you ever felt like composing one. :) Good work! :D

A truly sad poem, I can feel something there. And I liked the way you changed some cliche stuff and it made it in your own way that for some reason I couldn't do in my poems, lol. So, good job :)

Oh, really. So there are cliches. lol
Thank you for saying so. :)

You know what, I finish this in twenty minutes when I was in dorm chit-chatting. There are times for sure, not to say you are an American girl now.

And we are studying poetry now, it is so hard to me I want to die!!!

Thu, May 3rd, 2012 10:37pm


Actually, it's just about rhymes and making senses. Listen to some songs. It will help. :)
