I’m not the Poet,

I’m the poem.

I’m not the paper, not the pen.

I’m not the hand.

I’m a fairy land.

Aldo Tripiciano

  13. This is the best blog bout poetry n nice n inspiring for me 🙂
    a little poetry from me!

    Why I am not forgetting you.
    Why Inside depth of my heart endless love for you,
    You are not with me but still I am regretting for you.
    Why I am not forgetting you.
    Why, while I am unconscious always dreaming for you.
    When I am alone in dark night why I am screaming for you.
    I travelled highway roads, I rundown on hill way roads, to escape from you.
    I climbed up mountain, I dived into Dead Sea, and I walk in hot red deserts.
    I go everywhere to forget you, where my memory not remembers you.
    Whatever I do I feel my heart not with me he is always follow you.
    To forget you,
    I drink alcohol, I smoke cigarette, and I take marijuana,
    I did all these things to forget you.

  15. Hi, my name is Arthur L. Seymour. I live in the Bahamas, I’m looking for any performance, stand up
    poetry gig even if there is no payment involved I would like to
    display my talents. I have been performing my act in the Bahamas for
    over 4 years. We don’t have a vehicle for poetry in the Bahamas so my
    talent is wasting. I need an audition and chance to show what I’m
    about even if there is no money involved. YOU WON”T REGRET IT, they
    call me the Bahamian Tyler Perry because of my style. I have a variety
    of poems, I sent a few of my stuff for your viewing pleasure but
    that’s just the tip of the iceberg. This is my calling, I can write a
    piece in a day, shoot, edit and film. If you don’t think I’m unique
    please ignore my email, if you do please provide a way for me to
    showcase what I’m about.

    If I was to climb the tree,
    will you be there to help me?
    Tell me before I begin
    to reach out and grab a limb.
    Will you assist me to get on track,
    would you even let me on your back.
    Will you stand and watch me as I crawl
    up the tree to pick for all.
    will you direct my path up to the sun
    so I could grab the biggest one.
    Tell me that you’ll be outside
    waiting for me with a bag.
    Well, will we stilll be together
    to eat the fruits of our labour?
    Or will you up and disappear
    as soon as you get your share.
    I want to know you’ll be around
    waiting for me to come down.
    But what interest me most of all
    is will you catch me if I fall?


    I am lost and on my own
    Disconnected I stand alone
    A fragment of what was before
    Severed and joined as one no more
    The missing piece has been and gone
    Detached from where it should belong
    Separated, dichotomized
    From what it previously occupied
    I’m now a part of something new
    And I can’t be fixed with crazy glue.
    The sharp jagged edges mean a lot
    hurts deeper than a paper-cut
    Desolate I roam the land
    Like broken glass tossed on the sand.
    Segregated, there I lie
    Like pointy splinters cast aside.
    Disengaged so many years,
    Holding on to shattered tears.
    Torn apart, I’ve learned to blend in
    To what are now my surroundings.
    Divided, I long for the days of old.
    And to what made this broken man,


    I swear I have seen a ghost.
    “It” was the one I loved the most.
    Appearing after all this time,
    just so “It” could haunt my mind.
    Why is “It” horrifying me
    still remains a mystery.
    When I thought I paid my dues,
    “It” scared me out off my shoes.
    Go away, that’s what I prayed
    because “It” made me afraid
    Terrified to ask “It” why
    it wouldn’t go away and die.
    I thought that “It” would’ve stayed
    locked inside a hollow grave.
    covered with petals and stems,
    never to be seen again.
    Now that my life is back on track,
    “It’s” giving me a heart attack.
    I was so startled I began to melt.
    “It” already made “its” presence felt.
    If you need a description,
    “It” to me is an addiction.
    Returning after all this time,
    reincarnated to haunt my mind.

    Psychotic wife murdering poem.

    Wild and young.

    At first it was fun
    wild and young
    and the days go by
    the arguments begun
    first the shouting
    next the doubting
    third the hitting
    and then the counting
    days got longer
    as the hitting got stronger
    blood started to leak
    she started to weep
    I’m opposed a threat
    to people around
    to them I upset
    they cry on the ground
    she annoys me more
    when she gives people them looks
    so when we get home
    there’s a recipe to cook
    I cut her up
    season her with herbs
    cook her good
    and feed her to the birds.
