I'm trying to keep this community alive here.. kind of.. sort of. I guess the only way to do that is to keep posting more poetry. Wahoo!


The Camera Man and His Love Affair

It is known that clockwork can and will tick fowards or backwards
To either confuse the mind or
Set the wrinkles deeper
Though a passing second may dim the edges and
Splinter greasy relics
But a moment lost cannot congeal and cling
As if to mute the patterns upon the paper

The dust comes with the territory
Like a parisite, it will clutch to keepsakes misplaced or
Misinterpreted
Such as the dirty little photograph
When souls were captured in the midst of squalor
Yet everybody smiled

Teeth were bared while rotting in gums
After tongues were bitten in awe of
A moment to preserve in time
Mouths grinned naked, barren
Living legends of dirt and honor
But they presented themselves to the lenses
And though their faces were stained
The flash bleached their imperfections

Today the grime can still be felt
Through the perforations in the folded cardboard
The blood, the mess, and the mud
Warped with age, lying statically as a backdrop
Holding dearly and closely to the three women
Aware but momentarily apathetic
To everyone but
The camera man


enjoy.
Current Mood: rushedrushed
Current Music: nothing actually

» Stamped

Of ashtrays and
Silverware
Shifted twenty degrees between
Palm and
Wrist
Lining contours
And stroking little
Ornaments had she
Only kissed


Him
When the static
Folds patterned
Hearts upon the
Screen
Romancing in
Circles
Within her upside
Down routine


Among song birds and
Love birds lies
Interstellar dis -
array
Provocative yet her
Passion
Some undefinable
Social cliche

» community or not?
It has been two weeks since i posted three poems in this community, and i have received only two comments, both of which i am grateful for.

However, i was under the impression that this is a poetry rating community with a stamping system. It is impossible to foster a sense of community when members are shut out of the entire process until they are "stamped," and then not stamp any new members for weeks on end. It is impossible to be rated when there are so few active raters. It is a vicious cycle.

I am not stamped yet, so i am breaking the rules by posting this at all, but this is something that seriously needs to be addressed if this community is going to thrive.

I think the rules need to be rethought and revamped if poetryreview is expected to survive.

If I didn’t tell you, would you know it was you that you were seeing?Collapse )
This time, instead of just saying "No" if you dont like them, could I get a little Feedback? That's what you claimed this community was for, so I'd really appreciate some if you see it fit to give any. However, if you liked these, more of my stuff can be found in my journal- StormyViolet.
