EXERCISE Poetry Challenge #4 - A Confession of Love

Discussion in 'REFINING WRITING' started by Fluffy, Dec 4, 2010.

  1. Not just any old confession, though. Your confessing your love to a food! Write a poetic confession to the food you love most. If there is more than one, feel free to creatively combine them into one poem or talk about the conflict of choosing one over the other. If not that, write more than one!

    This is food, mind you. Not drink. No poems about beer. :P

    Here is my poem:

    Hello, Pasta
    Sitting on the shelf
    caged in some coloured cardboard
    I'll have you to myself
    you're so easy to afford!

    Red, white or plain
    just butter and garlic is great
    I feel so insane
    about this flavour debate

    Never without cheese
    Always a delicious shape
    I say thanks and please
    for this heavenly escape​
  2. OMFG I wish I still had a poem that I wrote about tacos and sodomy for a 'goth' themed party my friend threw a couple of years ago.

    Anyways, those unfamiliar with Mr. Noodles, they are essentially a Canadian (aka more awesome) version of ramen noodles. While I love many other foods more than Mr. Noodles, Mr Noodles still holds a place in my heart for always being there when I needed him most.

    What's Shaking, Mr. Noodles?
    What a glorious cardboard cup,
    I just can't wait to fill you up.
    Beef, mushroom, chicken or curry,
    It's you I go to in a hurry.

    But before I do the deed,
    I must instructions read:
    If you really want to dine,
    Fill with water to the line.
    While you wait for your noodles,
    Fill a page with tiny doodles.

    And with that task complete,
    I taste your broth so sweet.
    For me there is no other,
    I love you like a brother.
  3. Breathless on the counter
    A heart thats struck so deep
    I'd give the years Before now
    Just to watch you sleep

    A heart that once was tortured
    I swear that now is free
    Dreaming of a life
    Together, You and me

    This distance isn't all that bad
    The things that I'd go through
    I'd travel to the end of time
    Just to be with you

    OF all the things I am to you
    I hope one day I can
    Be the one who walks with you
    Together, Hand in hand

    Apart, we start, but finish
    Together, this I swear
    I'd give my arms to hold you
    Wherever you are, I'll meet you there

    Dry them eyes with razors
    The pain of distance leaves
    The first time that I saw you

    I loved you, as I breath.
  4. I used to hate the autumn
    so distant, cold, and lonely
    I used to hate the winter too,
    But what would that mean to you?

    In times past there was brief warmth
    but it never stayed and would always fade
    And back to chills I would go
    my heart was wintered
    without snow

    I wear these clothes to keep me hot
    but with you I need them not
    and I stumble on these verses
    like horrid rancid hearses.

    I hope this poem explains
    the feelings that I keep
    you've taken away my pain
    as I watch you fall asleep

    You're everything I'll ever need
    Without you my world goes gray
    I promise I'll do my best to please
    and smile when you stay

    I now love all the seasons
    because you showed me the light
    And you gave me reasons
    to look at them with a different sight

    I love you, Twizzlers.

    *Grins a sly grin and slowly walks away*
  5. I know this is late,
    I know this will hurt,
    I know time has passed,
    I know so much more.

    I know its not fate,
    I know this is curt,
    I know this will last,
    It is you I adore.
  6. A Confession of Love (Birthday Cake)

    Oh! Sweet birthday cake,

    With your icing and candles,

    Become one with me.
