does anyone else in this forum right poetry, i've been writing since i was like in the 6th grade, so as long as i've been playing drums i guess. if you write you should post one of your writing and share it with the forum, here is one of mine

fear rests behind this walls
if you listen you can hear its call
a disease began here to set in
look closely under the skin
see the rot and the festered soars
smell the stench breath the goar
hate the ripe love the raw
nothing here makes sense at all
tossing turning sweating; bad dreams
for this you create and so you deem
oh i moan because the night is still young
waiting for the morning sun to come
your judgements placed apon my shoulder
as i am to carry them like a boulder
ankles crack and slowly shatter
my mind is torn like cloth, tattered
trip to fall into a corpse of myself
live to breath death's smell
hate the ripe love the raw
nothing here makes sense at all

COOL! I write a little bit. Good stuff man. Here's one of my more recent ones...

The past fades away, echoing memories
darkness takes hold, and changes me
a white light begins to emerge above
and I see the one I've grown to love

The past fades away, leaving emptiness
holes are filled up by faithfulness
uncertain future resides alone
together we can make it our home

The past fades away...

And here is one of my songs, which started out as a poem...

I. Unspoken Words - Copyright (C) 2006 Symphonious

Heard my name, you said it yesterday
it was only in my head
The words I speak, the thoughts that I think
These walls are going to hear instead
Ever present feeling
Oh I'm still feeling
My heart is bleeding
Save my soul from a
mind that's lost control
Haunting me, haunting me
Can't escape the grip
of my unspoken words

On long and sleepness nights
I lay awake and think of you
how I felt when I held you
your eyes when I yelled at you
Ever present dissonance
no longer consonance
Haunting me, haunting me
Can't escape the grip
of my unspoken words

(spoken)
I did not realize what I had until it was gone
I did not realize what I was doing was so wrong
I did not realize what happened until it was too late
I did not realize how much I'd sit and contemplate
If only I'd told you that I believed
instead I pushed you away
I wouldn't be falling under like I am right now
Yet i'm here, in this place right now
In a sky filled with clouds and thunder

Heard my name, you said it yesterday
it was only in my head
The words I speak, the thoughts that I think
These walls are going to hear instead
Ever present feeling
Oh I'm still feeling
My heart is bleeding
Save my soul from a
mind that's lost control
Haunting me, haunting me
Can't escape the grip
of my unspoken words

Thanks. I try. And I'm not afraid to admit it. Hell, if you're a dummer, you're a musician. And if you're a musician, you also have a creative side. And if you have a creative side, then you'll create things. Just because you're a drummer doesn't mean your creativity will manifest itself ONLY on the drums...

Writing is good. Although I did have pretty good English teachers in high school, who counted off 10 pts each for grammer errors, even in our speech! But we could get extra credit if we found grammer errors in newspapers or magazines and brought them in. It was cool. But yea, I love poetry. Very artsy.

Oh yea dude. Check this out, speaking of creativity. I did this little thing today while I was hanging out with the worship pastor at my church. I just had this idea for a song and had to get some of it down into tangible form. The only thing is I had to use electronic drums. Roland T808 i think was the model. I plan on using my acoustic drums on the final mix of the entire song. Anyway, he let me record away with the keyboard and drums. It was great. Anyway, here's the link. Give it a listen and let me know what ya think, as long as we're on this creative kick...

me too bro...we're musicians, we can be totally rational at one minute, and then the next, we can be as irrational as it gets...sorry 'bout your media player, that sucks ass...but just know it's cool, and hopefully, you'll be able to go to my symphonious myspace page in a few weeks once I have the final mixdown to upload...

I don't write poetry either.
Reading is good enough for me.
I've come across that poem before...
E.E. Cummings, right?
