New poet

i'm horrid and switched the first poem with one i liked better...i live on the edge.....



V.I.D.A.

i think i am good or was good once perhaps
worn and spread far too thin
too many times spend in my malfunctioning washing machine
this punctured holes
deflating my bloated ego
i entertained the delusions of grandeur
a fabulous rock star in my own right
synthesized success
what part of this prepares me for the real world?
do i need a prerequisite of greatness to write?
can i craft beautifully made volumes of pretentiousness?
but i do give in to peers
and their common disinterest in passion and creation
exceptional apathy and disaffection
"just a plain girl" i answer
being spectacular is so passe
and i just wanna fit in and underachieve
'cause i really want you to like me
--------------------------------------

conform for adolescence and kill your self for kurt cobain (flush life down the drain)

pearly teeth
bruises underneath your dress
just an innocent caress can paint patches of maroon
i speak to soon 'cause i realize this was patronizing
after analyzing facts and figures
graphs and pictures that can't manipulate me
they almost kinda liberate me in a way but it still hurts
it's still strange to watch you flirt as they pursue this ruse
i am not amused

-------------------------------------------------------------------

i have written longer poems than both of these. but they are two that i have written recently that i am sort of proud of.

i write poetry as a means of expression for what is going on for me or those that surround me at a particular moment in time.
things that influence me:people, friends, strangers, acquaintances enemies, TS Elliot, crayons, glittler, nostalgia, traumma, coffee, conversations, film, illness, umbrellas, stickers, childhood, sugar, green tea, making paper snowflakes, rain, music

i have been writing poems since i was eight years old and going to alternative elementary school. i am serious about poetry and writing in general. but mostly story telling aspects. the idea of writing:films, novels, short stories, movies and poetry all excite me equally.
i have never been published but hope to be someday.
i still haven't graduated from high school i am 15 years old which may explain the occasional juvenile quality to some of my work.
but that does not mean that i am not interested.

tell me what you think.
