A poem or 2

On Mount Olympus the saying goes
A gods believers dictates his clothes

Their every thought and dream combine
To form the garb of those divine

Behold Morpheus the God of Dreams
In a Fila top and dirty jeans

cheers for the comments!
.....................

Penance is due,
From those who intrude,
In the land of make believe.

For they are the blight,
Who confuse the sight,
Of a mind washed in dreams.

Acting like god,
Striving to rob,
Freedom by the ream.

Who is to say,
What is the way,
To shatter life's appease.
...........

Or
...........
Face Alabaster, dreams so Nice!
Mankind's Master, or his Vice?

Excesses in All!
Inducing the Fall?

Breath taking!
Death making?

Fun!
Done?

Not sure m8, not sure I know what beatnik means to be honest..... if its that: short........ sharp....... paused..... way of reading poems then I'd say no, but I may be getting confused with a piss take in Mike Myers film

I like em

Have you ever considered blank verse poetry ? Like, I dunno, Philip Larkin. I've tried rhyming poetry but it always ends up coming out as doggerel or comic verse. I'm experimenting with blank verse poetry, but it's a FUCKING hard verse form, especially if one hasn't actually studied poetry (which I haven't, I'm a biologist by education). I think poetry may be my favourite artform, but there's so much intellectual masturbation out there, you try to do it yourself but even if it comes from the heart you know some fucker is gonna analyse it or take the piss. But I think it's something that comes from the heart. Like I said I like yours :hug: and it's nice to see folks doing it.

Nice one lol

Thanks gents!

Sorry I don't know what blank verse is m8 (I'll google his stuff thanks), I have lots of poetry books but don't think one's later than WWI, also no education on this stuff (geologist). These are short drug rhymes, other stuff mostly doesn't rhyme

My opinion is that it takes more skill to make words which don't rhyme flow well. If that makes sense. I'm not sure what blank verse is either.
