Favorite Bleach poems
heyllo,so i have been reading the bleach poems at the beginning of each book since the first book and i find them to be one of the major reasons i got interested in bleach.i love all KTs poems.
i was just wondering what anyones favs were and if they could help a lil with the meanings cause some are a lil tough to get and i haven't found a single forum with the poem meanings.
There are poems in Bleach? Damn necros...
First I've heard of it too.
News to me too. Uh, kazehime, why don't you post some of the bleach poems? As to discussions on other boards, well I guess deconstructionism is seldom reservered for the likes of anime poems.
True, we don't have anything such as "fate".
It's only those who drunk in ignorance and fear
and stumbled over their own feet
that fell and disappeared among the muddy rivers
known as "fate".
This one is my favorite.
You know im actually on the lookout for these as well, could you tell me where i can find them, they used to have them on wikipedia but theyre not theyre anymore. If anybody has any please post.
Bleach Volume Poems
01: The death and the strawberry
what doesn't exist.
02: Goodbye parakeet, Good night my sista
People can possess hope
because our eyes are unable to see death.
03: Memories in the Rain
If I were the rain
could I connect with someone's heart
just as it can unite
the eternally separated earth and sky?
04: Quincy Archer Hates you
We attract each other
like a drop of water, like planets.
We repel each other
like magnets, like the colors of our skin.
05: Right arm of the giant
If I don't wield the sword,
I can't protect you.
If I keep wielding the sword,
I can't embrace you.
06: The death trilogy overture
True, we don't have anything such as "fate."
It's only those who drink in ignorance and fear
and stumble over their own feet
07: The broken Coda
We should not shed tears
for that will serve as a defeat of our bodies to our hearts.
It is then nothing more than proof
for it to be said that our hearts are things
beyond our ability to control.
08: The Blade and me
When rusted, I can't cut again.
When you lose your grip, I will be torn apart.
Yes, it's with that pride that
has me resemble a blade.
09: Fourteen days for conspiracy
Ah, even though our eyes are opened
we are dreaming of
flying through the sky.
10: Tattoo on the sky
We reach out our hand
to brush away the clouds and pierce the sky,
but even if we seize the moon and Mars
we still can't reach the truth.
11: A Star and a Stray Dog
I will light a fire on an unreachable fang,
so that I won't have to see that star,
so that I won't let it tear at my throat.
12: Flower on the precipice
We think the flower on the precipice is beautiful
because our fear make our feet stop at its edge
instead of stepping forward into the sky
like that flower.
13: The Undead
Any one time we throw away pride
we take a step closer to becoming beasts.
Any one time we kill a heart
we take a step back from becoming beasts.
14: White Tower Rocks
It creaks, it creaks; the tower of cleansed sins,
like the light, it will pass through this world.
It shakes, it shakes; the tower in our spine,
the one that will fall will be... us? Or the sky?
15: Beginning of the death of tomorrow
I am merely practicing
saying goodbye to you
16: Night Of Wijnruit
The constant shower of the sun's mane
will erase the remaining footprints on the thin ice.
Don't be afraid to be deceived
for the world is already full of deception.
17: Rosa Rubicundior, Lilio Candidior
Red like blood
White like bone
Red like solitude
White like silence
Red like the beastly instinct
White like a god's heart
Red like thawing hatred
White like a frozen, pained cry
Red like the night's hungry shadows
Like a sigh piercing the moon
it shines white and shatters red
18: The DeathBerry Returns
(Soi Fong Cover)
Your shadow stealthily
leaves nothing of where you go, like a poisoned needle
that sews together my footsteps.
Your light pliantly
strikes the water tower, like a lightning bolt
that severs the source of my life.
19: The Black Moon Rising
(Bankai Ichigo Cover)
nothing else can change my world.
20: End of hypnosis
One who paints the beauty in love
is one who pretends to not know love's form.
One who paints the ugliness in love
is one who understood it well.
21: Be my family or not
This entire world
exists for the sake of cornering you.
There is no meaning in our world,
neither is there any meaning in us, the ones who live in it.
It is then meaningless
for us, who are equally meaningless, to conceive the world in our thoughts
despite knowing there is no meaning to be found.
23: MALA SUERTE!
We are the fish before the waterfall
We are the insects inside the cage
We are the wreckage of the angry sea
The skull upon the staff
The torrent of power, all of which the whale swallows
We are the bull with five horns
We are the monster that breathes fire
The child who screams
Ah, we are
being poisoned by the moonlight
24: Immanent God Blues
Doesn't matter who it is
I'll fuckin' break 'em
25: No Shaking throne
(Hollow Ichigo Cover)
die as we are born.
We always find the end
before the beginning.
If to live
means to continually search for wisdom,
we'll find the end waiting after our last lesson.
To finally see the subtlety of the end
and understand it completely
is what it means to die.
We cannot help ourselves from growing wiser.
Those who are helpless to their search for knowledge
are those who cannot transcend death.
26: The mascaron drive
That voice that pierces my chest so deeply
resembles a never-ending cry of ecstacy.
27: Goodbye Halcyon Days.
(2nd Orihime cover)
are not intertwined
do not share the same form
Of the third:
we simply don't have eyes
Of the fourth:
we have no hope in that direction
At the fifth
therein lies the heart
28: Baron's lecture full-course
look upon you
as one would a peacock
A look that borders on
anticipation, adoration, and something
akin to neverending terror
29: The slashing opera
In my desperation, I'll dress myself up grandly
Even while knowing you'll cut me down
In my desperation, I'll polish myself to a shine
Even while knowing you'll cut me down
It was terrible, how it was terrible
When you once did just that
You lopped off my hair
And left me looking like you did when you died
30: There is no heart without you
That wound is as deep as the ocean
That bloody murder is as colorless as death
31: Don't kill my volupture
Tell me I'm hated most in the world.
32: The Howling
(Grimmy release Cover)
The king gallops
Shaking free from the shadow,
Beating the armor,
Kicking about the bones,
Slurping the flesh and blood,
The creaking increases.
Smashing the heart
He walks in alone
Toward the faraway other side
33: The bad Joke
We are insects...
Worms crawling underneath nonvolatile spite
I lift my head up, higher even than the moon…
…until I can’t see you merciful bastards anymore.
34: King of the kill
If you give me wings
I will soar for you
Even if this whole land
Sinks down to the water
If you give me a sword
I will fight for you
Even if this whole sky
Shoots through with your light
35: Higher than the moon
If you even fail to be born, it's only natural to die.
36: Turn Back the pendulum
(Long haired Shinji Cover)
"It's still too early to believe."
Rain is by far my favorite.
I love the rain one, especially the version in the Jump Fiesta '04 episode, I think it was the pilot or something.
5, 7, 20, 25 stood out for me.
Chad's poem made me think of a girl I care about.
Byakuya's poem is quite unique.
Gin's poem is so sad that its touching.
Hollow Ichigo's poem certainly brought life to perspective.
I think Grimmjow's poem was garbage.
