Do you have any poetry you have written yourself? Would you like to share it with us and win a 3-question reading?

Providing we get 3 entrants or more, we will vote for the winning poem later this week and the winner will be able to ask two yes/no questions and one more open-ended question - I will use my pendulum and my Shaman Tarot (for the first time) to read for you.

Simply post your poems here - you can enter more than one, and it doesn't matter if it's a poem you've posted here before.

Burns Night is tomorrow, January 25th, so you must post your poem by the end of January 26th to enter please.

Look out for more celebrations tomorrow night if you're able to be around!

Just to get the ball rolling, I thought I'd post a few of mine.

CHILD OF MY HEART

Child of my heart
When you came to earth
You brought a key from heaven
That unlocked rooms in my heart
I didn't know existed;
That key has such worth
More than any treasure listed.

Child of my soul
When you smile just for me
Hug me with your love so fierce and pure
You infuse warmth in my soul,
Set my spirit so free,
Help my heavy heart endure.

Child of my life
I love no-one like I love you
And for your happiness I'm trying
Every minute of my life
To make a key for you
That your life be spent flying
Extraordinary and free;
Your dreams unlocked,
Love in all you see.

Child of my heart, my soul, my life
I am your angel on earth
And you are mine.
2008

TAMBOURINE SONNET

No sonnet to hold the magic of feeling,
A trembling tenderness in my soul delights –
A shadowing sonnet to reflect the lights,
The beauty, the beauty, of ever believing.
No sadness to spoil the depth of compassion,
A freedom so simple, though love lives still –
A flyaway sonnet to soar with the thrill,
The release, the escape, of all love and all passion.
No days and no years could cut its throat,
A timeless emotion that cannot know never,
That can never quite give enough.
No cymbals for us with one splendid note –
A tambourine sonnet for you, forever
For the soft steady shake of this love.
1998

A MUSE

Heart and soul, you touch me
Regardless of whether or not you’ll ever know
I have been breathing you
Turned on the lights in my darkened life
And never again will I stand to be kept in the dark
My light smothered, my spirit closed
A free spirit now you released me
Tremble as you whisper in my ear
Though it’s not really you at all
Your energy comes over me
Like a ghost with good intentions
Constant love reaches between us
A stream created by a spiritual mystery
Know that I send you my love and light
And hope for everything you wish for
A sudden charge, a shock, a flash of energy
Finally hands me back my power
And I step in confident and beautiful and alive
Truly in my own power
I have only been a ghost of myself for too long
Your magnificence is my inspiration, my motivation
Your distant soul my safe haven
And beside you I disappear
Into an obscurity I am happy to be lost in
Endlessly share your beauty
It lights fires in the hearts and minds of many
And makes me free to dream
Wherever that world is where you lose yourself
To follow for a glimpse, I would gladly
You already showed me
A new way to be.
2004

Sharron you said we could submit any amount right? well here goes mine. i love to write!

NEVER MEANT TO FALL IN LOVE,
NEVER THOUGHT YOU'DE BE THE ONE,
NEVER KNEW MY DREAMS WOULD COME TRUE,
NEVER BELIEVED TILL I MET YOU.


SOMEONE I LOVE BUT HE CANNOT WAIT,
SOMETHING I SEE BUT IS NOT THERE,
A THING I LOOK FOR BUT I AM BLINDED,
SOMETHING I HEAR BUT CANNOT TRUST.
WHY MUST THE WORLD BE LIKE THIS?
SO COLD HEARTENED, NOT FORGIVING, UNRELENTING
YET I FEEL LOVE AND HOPE AND THATS WHEN I KNOW
SOMEONE CARES!



YOU TOOK ME BY THE HAND,
YOU WAITED FOR ME TO FOLLOW,
YOU GAVE ME LIFE,
YOU REPLENISHED MY HEART
YOU FOUND THAT WALL THAT I HAVE BUILT,
THE ONE TO HIDE THE PAIN
AND NOW I'M IN LOVE!
I'M IN LOVE WITH THE WAY YOU TALK
THE WAY YOU LOOK AT ME
THE WAY YOU EVEN CALL MY NAME
FOR SOMEONE I BARELY KNEW,
I AM SO VARY IN LOVE WITH YOU!


last one i can find at the moment...

SITTING DOWN THINKING ABOUT YOU,
I HAVE BUTTERFLIES IN MY TUMMY IT MAKES ME WANT TO PUKE!
YOU DISGUST ME YOU PERVERTED LITTLE PIG
BUT I LOVE YOU AND I DON'T KNOW WHY.
THERE'S JUST SOMETHING ABOUT YOU
THE WAY YOU LOOK AT ME,
THE WAY YOU SMILE.
STOP IT!
I DON'T WANT YOU!
GIVE ME A REASON TO LOVE YOU
AWWW YOU KNOW I CAN'T STAY MAD AT YOU.
PLEASE TELL ME YOU LOVE ME TOO,
CAUSE YOU KNOW WHAT?
I LOVE YOU.


thanks for reading. enjoy

Im going to write one right now for you ladies

I stumbled upon a site one day that defiantly got my attention
The talks of angels spirits and manifestation moon light wishing

I met some great ladies I can call my friend and even some my family
I love the way I can tell them anything and they agree with me

The life i live at home is very much so empty
But when I get on JM to talk to my girls i feel the light within me

They taught me things that i never knew and made me feel so welcome
I cant believe i met this ladies and i wrote this poem to tell them

I love them all and will never forget the way that they have treated me
and if one day you find this site i know you will say this with me

I will always remember the day i stumbled upon a forum that defiantly got my attention
talks of angels, spirits and manifestation moon light wishing

All rights reserved to Shanise Robertson this 26th day of January 2011

I love you ladies

um, I don't do poetry! lol I did write a little "poem" for my xbox live account. I will share, but I really don't expect anything for it. I am a girl gamer and I am always tired of the boys talking mess because I am better than they are! Please don't think bad of me! I am not exactly lady like.

Chill out with that attitude,
We all know that your the newb.
Feel the pain of my bullet,
if your on my team, cool it.

As I tea bag softly in the night,
I laugh that you barely put up a fight.
I pound you with my nice hard stock,
beat down like the rest of your flock.

Did you forgot this is Halo: Reach,
Quit daydreaming of the beach;
Get on your knees and bend over,
Howl, like your a little B!tch name Rover.

It's okay if you want Momma,
I love to hear your lag drama.
Big boys don't cry,
nor do they run and hide,
like a wet little pu$$y cat,
dead, on his backside.

Want to run with the big Dogs?
I will eat you up and push you out in logs.
Yeah, you like it from a female,
Come on, see you in Halo Hell.

OK, this is a song....I cannot find my notebook with all my poetry in it, but I wrote this song and eventually will put music to it.....

It was a summer too long ago,
Where our souls were entangled.
Back then, time moved so very slow;
Knowing our hearts would be mangled.

I miss the way your hand caressed my face.
I miss the way your lips felt on my skin.
Memories now that time can only chase,
But, baby, how I long for you again.

Palm trees sway and the ocean sings
The songs of love and the lost
Baby our time has nothing but wings
Killed like grass in the first winter frost.

In the sand we wrote our names, surrounded by a heart
The days were hot, and the nights were ours,
Under the bright white moon, we had our start.
Where we watched the reflection of faw away stars.

Tell me you can't feel the pulse of the waves
Bouncing back and forth from me to you.
The tide rose high that night in the caves
When we proved our love was, oh so true.

Palm trees sway and the ocean sings
The songs of love and the lost
Baby our time has nothing but wings
Killed like grass in the first winter frost.

Baby the echoes of the past haunt me
Begging me to come back to the beach.
Can't you see we just can't get free
True love is practicing what it's preached.

LeAnn, I like it!!

To clarify for everyone you may all still enter poems until 1pm GMT Friday. On my lunch break tomorrow I will set up the poll and leave it running over the weekend. I will be at Shaun's all weekend - Chris is having Daniel - so will have no net access after finishing work tomorrow through Sunday evening, hence the 1pm GMT Friday cut-off.
