Rather than individual threads with one post in each, a single thread for random spur-of-the-moment musings.
I'll begin:

I launched a rocket into the air
It shattered to pieces
I've crafted a spare.

To put this in the words of Edwin S. Porter...

I won my fame through wider claim along Lackawanna's splendid name.
For keeping bright and snowy white along the road of anthracite.

Child where did you go last night?
To a place of warmth and light,
of gentleness and love,
where the lamb, the lion did not bite.
Don't mess in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and go well with chocolate. - source unknown

The most common form of despair comes from not being who you are. - Soren Kierkegaard

Do not cry, you will die.
As you weep, the enemy creeps.
Make it stop, come out on top.
Now warned, you can win the war.

I fight to flee, to be free,
and yet there I see,
as I fight to return and to see
the other me...
Next time, I'll collect the money, and you can die!
The perfect blossom is a rare thing. You could spend your life looking for one, and it would not be a wasted life.

Beyond the farthest place,
It seems so commonplace,
But you feel out in space,
Away from a familiar face.

To sail upon the Rhine,
It's you I wish to dine.
If I only had  more time,
perhaps you might be mine.

Second thoughts arise
So quickly
That to act upon them now
Would ensure success.
But would it make happiness?

On my steed I rode,
through the forest to find my rose.
My sword was sharp my eyes were not,
the quest all but forgot.

Here's one of my own creations:

It's 1945.
So it's VE Day, a time for everybody to shout, "Hooray!".
Mr. Hitler's dead so the Nazi war machine has gone to bed.
As the vicar will tell, Sir Churchill will go to heaven while Mr. Hitler goes to hell.

I hope no offence has been intended.

Have you ever woken from a dream
Longing to watch it again?
Would you enjoy it forever
Or would it suddenly end?

Here's another of my creations:

Foxes.
So what if they cannibalise oxes?
So what if they're hated by farmers?
So what if they scare llamas?
If they should be cared for by God, let's all give a nod.

At night,
City lights
Hide the stars.
The moon remains
And illuminates my soul.

---------------

I have a prisoner.
I lock him away so people don't get hurt.
I lock him away so he doesn't get hurt.
I am my prisoner.

Watch the silent train
Go past the field of view
Don't look in disdain
But calmly walk the other way.

Feel the breeze go by
And don't look past tomorrow
Stand, stand boldly
And calmly walk the other way.

heres a poem i wrote a couple months ago, so maybe its time to reverse the season >.>

A wisping willow
A late night breeze
The chill of dawn
And the early humming of honey bees
Summer is on its way

A bright moon shining
Clouds full of joy, flowing gently along
Thousands of little stars all whining
So when i finally hear this mystical song
I know summer is on its way

A beautiful fire burning calm with heat
Although the anxiousness is swarming the air
The trees all listening, waiting, counting every beat
The tension I can hardly bare
Summer is on its way

Enjoy what you have. But most importantly, nothing will ever be handed to you! Put in effort, the harder you work for something, the more rewarding it is :3

the wind outside batters against my window
making sounds which a younger me may have knowingly wrongly perceived as a god

wolfcoon cuddles
squirrel criticisms as well as confirmations of his quality of character
a tiger came back

there is a family who come through the store
they all look very similar to one another
if you have ever sat next to a fat person
you know that smell
and that is what they smell like

woken by a knock at the door
someone else answered it
a rather fetching black number awaited me when i arose
i was drifted to new experiences

All there is - is to try
but it is nothing
if you don't.

Being alive is given
Feeling alive takes work
Throw away your misgivings
And discover life's perks

Multicolored fire
Combines into a dream.
A single strand
Can change the world.

This is your time now.

An Argentine gaucho named Bruno
Said there's just one thing that I do know

Women are fine
And sheep are divine
But llamas are numero uno

And here's something by W. H. Auden:

This is the night mail crossing the border.
Bringing the cheque and the postal order.
Letters for the rich.
Letters for the poor.
Letters for the shop and the girl next door.
Pulling up Beattock with a steady climb.
The gradient's against her but she's on time.

Moose stand their ground
While elk prance around
And whitetail are gone in a bound.
