This is inspired by Clannad.

 

 

Title: Broken Heart

Theme: Sadness

Entry:

How could it be? That I've lost so much in life.

How could it be? That I'm still alive.

Amidst all this pain

Amidst my broken heart

Why am I here at all?

 

Then I think back

And remember the time we shared

That light in your eyes

Gave me strength

Gave me courage

To face the world again

I really loved you

 

Then we had a child and on the day of her birth

You, you passed away

And I was destroyed

Fell into a great depression

For the next five years.

 

During, all that time,

Your parents raised our child

And then one day,

They made me reunite with her

She looks so much like you

It really hurts to see her

Yet I love her so much

 

Then she falls sick

Just like her mother did

And I hold close

Until she dies and

Leaves me

All alone in the world

How can I go on?

 

How could it be? That I've lost so much in life.

How could it be? That I'm still alive.

Amidst all this pain

Amidst my broken heart

I miss you both so much!

I was actually plannigt to go with a poem, too since I love writting them (it's the only thing I can write tbh).... and man, are they depressing or what xD I rarely include themes like the loss of loved ones like you did, though. My poems are depressing on a personal level... old habits die hard :P

As long as it is less than 1000 words, it doesn't matter.

Title:Goodbye

Theme: Sadness

Entry: Every time, when I looked at you my heart skipped a beat. I felt the sun on my face and I thought I had wings to fly high in the blue sky. I could've endure the pain when you were by my side. Oh how your hair flows in the wind and your smile which lit up like city lights. How your eyes seemed to see everything. This feeling, my desire for you grows stronger day by day. I thought that you were my everything, my destiny, my fate but suddenly everything changed. You left me alone to cry on the hard and cold floor. You were standing there, laughing as if you've done this before. How I've loved you and how I wanted you but now I know that the person that made me blush and made me happy was just a fantasy, nothing more but a dream. I loved you....You were my antidote to my sadness and loneliness. I wish I could turn back time and avoid meeting you, the person who would break me into pieces like glass. But now it's too late, for now I bid farewell to this world, to the people I've met, to the nice granny who was sweet and kind, to the children that came over for tea, goodbye. Goodbye to the shining stars that light up in the night.....goodbye.

Not intended to be like a song xD Just a paragraph of something sad

I actually did write it as a song. I just don't know how to write music.

Thanks!

I think she meant me xD

Bunny is pissed because she can't submit some of her favourite poems since they don't fit with either of the themes D:

 

Title: Illusions

Theme: Sadness

Entry: ok prepare yourselves for a lot of weirndess, my poems never make any sense xD

 

Burried in the sand

Out in the empty desert

A fullmoon rises

Above the mountain peaks

Only to fall back to the ground

Shattered by its fate

 

I could swear I saw you

Your shadow was dancing

With the winter breeze

Graceful and hollow

Torn into pieces

And carried by the wind

 

No one knows about my dream

Wide as the universe it was

Filled with galaxies and suns

That orbit around your dreams

Endless and lonely

Bleeding in pain

 

Why did I let you fall

In the blackness of your heart

Breaking the threads

You gently weaved

From the raindrops

You gathered in the skies?

 

 

 

There's no escape from greed and pride

Hell is waiting for us both

Our dreams were sins

And the wind was the devil

We sank into the darkness

Abandoned by the world
