Writing for Betty.

So, today’s different. Everyone’s a writer today. We’re writing 3-lined poems. Either a haiku or just a free verse. But three lines. No more. No less.

There’s only one rule. Your lines could be long-ish or short but a line shouldn’t complete itself on the next line. They could be #Deep (rolling eyes) or flighty.

It could be about your lover, your bicycle or taking a dump. As you please… I would like you to be creative.

Try not to be like Uncle Toolsman whose poem read-

‘Roses are red,
Violets are purple.
Blue may be calm but that aint you.’

Here are some I made 11 friends write- take a cue. And if you like them, do show some love.

Alright people, get writing.

Oh mine?

Umm..

Black, Green, Purple, Blue;
The tips of her fingers.
Her colors of rebellion.

(And- Yes, I can write 2, I’m Betty!)

Give me your chest.
Scarred from war.
For my headrest.

(Yes. Yes. It might be crap, let me see yours before you judge. 😐 )

1. Tolu Talabi (@NaijaRookie)
Another rainy morning, my clothes are drenched;
My hair is a mess and my hands are cold
Like my heart.

2. Osi (@osizurunkle)
Undo that voodoo that you do so well
The one that makes you the thing on which my thoughts must dwell
Secrets I’d like to keep my eyes always tell.

3. Bankole (@banxman)
Discovering seven new colours
In your beautiful eyes
As I send you to the sky

(And because he sent me many beautiful ones, another-)

A wild cat with nine lives
That’s died eight times
Is what I am

4. Moyo (@MazeDaMouth)
This was what the old knew
What makes the young groan
Hardwork is the key, not luck

5. Ayorinde (@awizii)
Emptiness fills my heart, depression claims my soul
Worry and so much negativity is hard to control
You overpower me so much I’m hard to console, what are you?

6. Osemhen (@OsemhenA)
You say you know me, but you don’t
I know a secret, that you don’t
See, I’m going to marry you.

7. Andre (@AndreBlaze)
I slave a verse for you
Make bars about us
Appeal through music to you; my sentence.

8. Samantha (@SamanthaSiren)
Trained myself not to love;
Love exists when its found-
But not everyone’s love-bound.

9. Omotayo (@JadenTM)
Moments:
The sun will still be there
Tomorrow will not care
Let go your breath my dear

10. Oyekole (@Qurr)
Party hard on Saturday Night
Pray hard on Sunday Morning Weekend Warriors

11. Nnaemeka (@MauriceNN)
The sounds of silence
are the babbling of a brook
and an avalanche.

PS: Ok. Ok, I’ll be nice and add one of the other ones Thetoolsman sent me:

Your eyes found me guilty of the heinous crime of staring at you
Your eyes found me guilty of the unavoidable crime of noticing your beauty.
Your eyes sentenced me harshly to the lifelong duty of forever loving you. I dare not appeal.

  8. When my phone beeps, my heart skips a beat
    When you walk into the room, I can’t help but swoon
    Whatever you’ve done to me, please don’t ever stop

    I know you said one, but here’s another:

    I can’t stop staring at you
    Your aura rings so true
    The sound of your voice refreshes me like dew

  11. Why didn’t you tell me? A little notice would have helped me…
    Why didn’t you tell me? The pain threatens to consume me…
    Thought we would have so much time… turning back the clock would be worth my last dime…

    Lords and Ladies, Masters and Minions

    Onward marching with bloodshot eyes
    Victors in perseverance, head held high

  29. As I told Betty yesterday, I need a new muse 😦 My poetry is not all that, unless somebody is “shacking” me :p. Short stories, I can write those anyday, I think. I sent a number to her and she selected the one she liked best (“weekend warriors”).

    Party hard on Saturday Night
    Pray hard on Sunday Morning
    Weekend Warriors

    Here are some of the others (5).

    Promise that you’ll come back
    And I’ll wait, sitting on the horizon
    Far below our future

    Your clear eyes and clean heart
    Inspiration outdoing desperation
    We can never lose

    Your eyes are like fire, burning bright
    But your soul Is dark
    As Night

    My love rises before the sun at dawn
    Laughs and plays in the noonday rain
    And beats the moon right back to you.

    An expert, he
    Had made many
    mistakes

  30. You were supposed to be my fireman
    You were supposed to quench a smoldering flame
    But instead turned it to a raging blaze

    After a while you learn that even sunshine burns when you get too much
    So plant your own garden and water your own soul
    You really do have worth.

    You stared at me

    I never meant to hurt you so;
    But I have to let you go.

  109. I refuse to carry last!!!

    From across a bridge our two hearts meet
    The world unstable at my feet
    Because of you, my soul’s in heat

    Another one

    Arms I can’t feel around me
    Words that melt my heart
    The pain I feel because we’re apart

  110. At the end of our aphonic walk, a pleasure so rare,
    When we reach our destination, we’ll just stop and stare
    At the wall at the end of the world. Striking, beautiful, bare.

    It’s been quite a while since I did any poetry,
    Comments have awoken stuff I forgot was in me,
    I hope I can do this a lot more frequently.

  211. Wow wow wow…. that’s all I can think to say
    If I’d been told I’d be this amazed, I would have said ‘Nay’
    You guys are sick, and I mean that in the best possible way

  212. Today a battle was fought
    A battle fought well, but lost
    The love that once was now is not

  214. Inadequate your words are not
    For they set me ablaze
    This fire which now rages in my bosom

  215. My face knows not yours
    But your name pleases my eyes
    My heart hears it and flutters

    Shall we then place a face to the name
    In so doing quench this fire
    Which frazzles my bosom and blazes through your loins

  216. you guys are just wrong…What is this? Dead Poet’s society?

  217. His body was molded like a Greek Adonis; my greek Adonis, I called him Thor
    Fair and rippled, his chest bore marks where my fingers had bid him come
    This man who was half god; my heart beat erratically for.

  218. My mind is indeed a maze
    Each passage lovingly dedicated
    To any who brings me succor

  219. Appreciate the beauty of words
    The soul it does bare
    Gay kids or not,for lack of a better word,poetry is the ‘ish’

  220. @Chinny…

    Elation, is wat ur last words make me feel
    Humility, dat I’m d one able to achieve dis feat.
    Incredulity, that u put into words my thots exactly.

    A face to ur name, I also seek,
    The mystery I wish to unravel is of proportions quite deep,
    On twitter, @tobicomm, is where my face can be seen.

  222. Your fiery touch enslaves me
    Ur kiss strums my heartstrings
    The pain u give a gift I gladly take

  223. I read Poetry here, both shallow & deep
    But while some r gawking & others fawning
    The wise among us r deftly ‘P’ setting

    Posted by Chukyjunior | July 20, 2011, 6:55 am
  224. I see a lot of P setting here
    I hope it becums a reality there
    I hope this isn’t the last here

  231. I chase my dreams
    Across the field
    I see the bees, sucking nectar from rose-coloured petals

    Kids laugh gaily in the distance
    As their nannies struggle valiantly to subdue their boisterous capering
    For a moment I suspend my pursuit…

    As I sink to my knees
    I close my eyes and inhale deeply…
    Savoring the scent of freshly cut grass mingled with the smell of rain on dry parched land

    I do not stop for long however
    For I feel the insistent tug of my dreams
    Tethered to my heartstrings jolting me from my reverie

    And once again
    I’m off
    In pursuit of my dreams… My happiness… My destiny

  232. My course…
    My cross…
    My curse…!

  233. Heavy as cement this load I own

    Meaning of my name; the reverse I’ve shown. 😦

    This last-carrying is too heavy for my weary soul.

    Posted by Genesis | July 21, 2011, 7:45 am
  234. My dry and cold hands I give unto you.
    Along with my heart, take them and warm.
    Until oblivion.

  235. Graze till U craze.

  236. How does a monkey shake its head that a gorilla cannot?

    How is woman with chutzpah better than a man with tools?

    This is a question we all (at least some 240 dedicated fans of this blog) needs to seriously ask.
