The Mother "When your mother has grown older, When her dear, faithful eyes no longer see life as they once did, When her feet, grown tired, No longer want to carry her as she walks - Then lend her your arm in support, Escort her with happy pleasure. The hour will come when, weeping, you Must accompany her on her final walk. And if she asks you something, Then give her an answer. And if she asks again, then speak! And if she asks yet again, respond to her,

Why the hell is this place /pol/ and not something like /pal/? Completely misleading for an imageboard like this.
>>145 "It's a fraud", one may say, but the name of the place keeps the real /pol/ away.

I’ll throw one of mine in to get the ball rollin’

Love, By Anon

They all dedicate lines to you
Thin lines, easy seen through.
Of course they do to be like others, who
all feel something I wont pretend to feel just for you
because Ive never ever wanted anything from you.
Ive watched them marry up
their wives and lives with ties and lies,
Ive seen them fuck infatuation
And call it you so they feel safer
I hope you'll stay with them forever
Let them sit back and never dream thoughts like mine
Scared hearts running from you
Take longer to prove
They can sit back and laugh while others do
But still they hold you in awe
Am I the first to ever question you exist?
Why do I throw up when she says she gives me herself only for you
Or her belief in you is only for me
Sometimes I almost envy the need, but don't see the prize

How do you manage to come up with an idea of what to write? Writing a poem, is it a story you want to tell or an emotion you want to convey? Or both?
>>76 Here's anotter: The otter's charm, so little known Holds no ceptre, has no throne Lives in groups or on his own Relishing his dearest stone. Dirt upon which otter rests, In a coat of comfort drest, The big wide river makes him guest, Its wealth upon the beast bequests. Though in the waves at home is he, and on the surface equally, In either must he cease to be, Split half and half, the otter's see.

there is enough treachery, hatred violence absurdity in the average human being to supply any given army on any given day and the best at murder are those who preach against it and the best at hate are those who preach love and the best at war finally are those who preach peace those who preach god, need god those who preach peace do not have peace those who preach peace do not have love beware the preachers beware the knowers beware those who are always reading books beware those who either detest poverty or are proud of it beware those quick to praise

Here we post about how we wrote today. Daily updates. What you read what you wrote, maybe that you posted in /crit/ (or started a new /crit/ thread.
OP here. I'll go first. Today I wrote two drafts of poems. I still have to do my daily recording, which I post to tik tok everyday. I spent most of the day fucking off, but I still got some writing done, even if I didn't read anything. Gonna record now.
>>79 You record anything yet? I'd love to see your work.
>>106 Yeah. This is the latest. https://www.tiktok.com/@solonoftheeast/video/6854766879534222598 I tend to post poems a bit at a time, as the shorter length seems to boost viewcounts and moreover, seems to help me better highlight which lines are good and which lines suck. Helps me keep a tight "write-perform-revise" loop, which I think is critical for an auditory medium like poetry.
>>108 Recorded today. Spent a shit-ton of time on three lines: Mutatis myopis, mutandis into nonsense. What needs be can't be seen as the world bends in the mindlens of the cable box, the soundstage of the solipsis-fable.
>>109 Couldn't write for shit today. Did a bit of freestyle. Not a goddamn thing more. Chased down the muse for a bit, but when the soul is perverted, the anima becomes oedipal

Jennifer wrestled her friend playfully to the ground in front of the snow cone stand and began licking at the girls eyeballs, as if they were sugar cubes. Their bodies convulsed and flailed with an almost seizure like intensity. At times their pale limbs seeming to shift back and forth from one torso to the other. A crowd gathered almost immediately to watch these two girls tie and untie their bodies like a pair of pit-vipers. They were confused, or concerned, or shocked, or aroused, or all of the above. But no-one dared interfere with the performance. Jennifer's long ashen hair hung down concealing the girls face like a curtain around a hospital bed. No one had any idea that the girls eyes were revolving under her ruby tongue. "This is disgusting, it's pornography" exclaimed a pasty slug-like woman in a fur coat, vanilla ice-cream smeared across her double chin like

Sunday is gloomy, My hours are slumberless Dearest the shadows I live with are numberless Little white flowers Will never awaken you Not where the black coach of Sorrow has taken you Angels have no thought Of ever returning you, Would they be angry If I thought of joining you? Gloomy Sunday Gloomy is Sunday, With shadows I spend it all
