Zadgan's Writting Corner - Poetry and Short Stories

Postby samzadgan » Wed Oct 01, 2014 6:28 pm

So...I was thinking of putting my poetry online again, and thought about a blog etc...but then I thought, why not create a thread and just do it this...so...plan is to put up a poem a day if I can...hopefully you guys enjoy it...if not tell me and i will shut it down...so here goes the first one.


The Circus

The gates open and the crowd rush in
the circus is open for business
the freaks leave their caravans
after making last minute changes
to their costumes
they head out to the freak show

Between the bearded ladies
and the tattooed man I stand
a spectacle for all to see
don't get too close because I’m contagious
don't feed me because I might follow you home

The board above my head
does my advertising, stating
“The lonely boring wonder,
of the 20th century”

The Carney stands atop his pedestal
“see him folks, but don't get too close.
Children look at this poor soul, hope
you never end up like him. Never give up
never give in, never let yourself go
or you might end up at the freak show,
subject to ridicule and sympathy of all
people walking by”

I see women cringe as they walk past
only to marvel at the art work of the tattooed man
men feel their beard as they
walk past the bearded woman
but look away when they walk past me

The freak show closes and the people leave
we all go to our trailers
the bearded woman takes off all her fake hair
the tattooed man washes off all
the artwork from his body
I make myself a drink and go to bed

cool man....here's today's poem...

People Walking Past

Sitting on the side walk
selling my life to strangers
“They might appreciate
what I have written” I think to myself

I’m not selling it for the money,
and really, I couldn't give a fuck
about what people think of me
so why am I trying so hard to sell?
I have no idea

Some politely look at the cover
as they walk past
as if to say: “I’m interested, just don't have time”

One homeless lady walks past
she asks me if I have a spare dollar...NO!
“Well, can I have a free book?”
I smile, and think “FUCK OFF!”

A young couple approach the table
he boldly grabs a copy
he reads the introduction
she reads with him
“that's a depressing intro!”
he puts the book down and leaves

Was he expecting me to tell him
how bright the sun shines?
or how wonderful life is???

An elderly gentleman approaches me
“do you know so and so?”
“No I don't” I reply
“Oh he's a poet” he shoots back

He then proceeds to quote a line
I thank him for his wisdom
he has just bestowed on me
we exchange names
and bid each other farewell

An advocate of “NO WAR”
sits a few steps down from me
spreading her message of peace

She had as much luck as I did
she left just before I did
and we wish each other
luck on future endeavours

As we exchange paths
I think to myself
next time I’ll advertise
next time I’ll make a big deal of it
maybe I will sell some of these books.

STOP WRITING POEMS ABOUT ME SAM. :lol: :animal:

The second stanza hits me right in the feels. I guess I don't give a fuck about the money, but I want the success?

Ha! its a funny feeling right...you don't want to sell out..but there is a small part of you that gets all competitive about selling!

so, 3rd day...poem 3...


Unwanted Tune

He plays the piano drunk
with bleeding fingers
blood from the spikes on the keys he hits
belting out a song
that he does not like
a song he knows not to be his own

Meanwhile he reminisces
of a song his mother sang years before
in the years when he
lived carefree, and irresponsibly
when he lived to live

The song he plays now
seems to never end
he knows he can
never play his mothers song again

He is forced to play this
unwanted tune for years to come
an endless chorus of
sweat spent, never regained

He plays the final notes of the tune
fingers worn to the bone
blood ceased to drip
years ago as complaints
fell on ears that did not want to listen

He sits back
resting, looking at the piano
he wonders to himself
“what have I done?”

He looks to his empty hand
and the empty room
that surrounds him

The empty life he has led
playing a song that no one heard
a lifeless tune
and blank music book

Remains of a nameless life

Once led...
...By someone...
...Somewhere...
...Sometime...

I dig it. Reminds me a bit of the first poem you posted. I kind of expected the song to start again at the end of the poem, like a 21st century Sisyphus or some shit.

Reads a little like an Elliott Smith song.
Which is a really good thing by the way!

Cheers man...i take that as a complement.


Crossing Hughes Street

I think, what the hell am I doing here;
why did I come here tonight;
why did I flip the coin
why did it decide my fate?

I’m lying here as she shivers herself to sleep
I’m the sucker taking care of her
while her blood in the other room
screams in joy with here German Casanova

She hates to feel sick
she gets an attack
a rush of panic draws tears from her eyes
homesick, vulnerable, looking for shelter
shelter for her soul
safety from the world
within the arms of her mother

I try to comfort her
“but this isn’t helping”
“what’s this?” I ask
“you and me”

Drunken words maybe
alcohol driven,
the cleanser of lies make the drunken words
closer to truth than any other words spoken

So as I walk home at 10:30 am
I wonder,
why do I get into these situations?
What is it about me
that attracts such people?

Victoria Street clears my thoughts
I am the last stop
when everyone else has had their piece

I cross Hughes Street
and I’ve worked it out

There was particular bitch that I went out with for a while...who seemed to bring out the worst!

My Snake

If you knew it wouldn’t work
why did you make me admit to it?
what possible benefit do you get from it?

Is it a sense of achievement
to see me reduced to a hollow shell?
you crazy bitch
does that make you feel better?

Good work, you did what you wanted
yeah, you made me admit
to wanting you
and you spat in my face
after giving me a taste
congrats on a job well done
kudos to you bitch

I’m not going to pretend like I don’t care
or that I’ll get over it
or that every time I see you
I won’t feel what I felt last week
I won’t give you that satisfaction

Maybe I should have used and abused you
like everyone seems to have done
maybe that was my mistake
I actually cared for you
but with all that said
I don’t need a snake in my garden

That’s all I have to say to you
so goodnight and fuck off to you!

Your Place

That place in my mind
a place that is yours
reluctantly I have departed with it
it is where your memory stays
your pain stays in that place
that you call yours

I try to bury every thought
but it just escapes
finds solace in that place
a prison with no wardens

I would cut my ears off
to never hear you again
I would pluck out my eyes
to never see you again

But in the silence of the darkness
I can still hear you laughing
I can still see you betraying me
still helpless & forgiving
hoping that I had courage enough
hoping that I could end your life
to pay for what you did to me

But even with the image
of your limp body on the floor
floating angelically in your blood
I can still see myself lying
...dying...
next to you in the end

Just say Yes

The bus doesnt stop here
the station is inactive
has been for a while.
I have to walk another mile
keep walking, keep walking

The ease some people have
is foreign to me.
But its all my own doing
its what i fucking sign up for
blindly say yes, just say yes

Meanwhile i have to live
with every fucking yes.
Each yes has taken another breath
from my lungs.
Each yes kills me inside
a little bit at a time, just a little

She sits there looking at me.
I must be the devil in her eyes,
she wonders how i can feel
the way i do.
But I do and have been for a while
i cant just fake it, cant fake it

And...here's today's one...

A Nameless

She isn't real
even though I wish she was
nameless sleeps over nameless nights
forgetting memories I never had
pink and black portraits
line the sides of the gate
closing visibility of a door handle

I bite on the worm on the hook
I struggle against it
knowing that the hook
is all I wanted
an excuse to not go further
and only be tempted

An eternity of getting a taste
and nothing more
but the pain of the hook
lodged deep into my flesh
pouring blood with every movement
going deeper with every struggle
until the pain of removing it
becomes greater than any other

At the mercy of a dream
a fantasy I created
the fantasy that I control
but am too weak of will to do so
I dangle the bate & hook
tempting myself
knowing the consequences
but I bite regardless
and tangle myself
with my own nameless fantasy

Don't stop!!! I mean do what you want but I know I'll be reading them.

I'm enjoying how your poems read, someone mention it akin to an Elliott Smith song and that's pretty much spot on.

Are you writing these everyday or are you posting a backlog you already have?
