I see no mask
what a disgrace
so out of place
I cant be strong all the time,
i cant just pretend im fine
im never fine, but that worries mine
i try to change
think of a new path
i try to change
a happy life, dont make me laugh
Bodies intertwining laying on the floor
my partner said he loves me i believe nomore
The time has come for reckoning my time to leave
My love for him was over though two children I conceived
he said he loved me which I thought true
Until I caught him...
Master, I am A sTranger to you
but will you to hear my confession?
I am a faceless man who lives
in the backyard of
I share your table
So heavily heaped with bread,
fruit and meat
it huffs like a horse drawing a coal cart
As the richmans to Lazarus
What ever happened to the infamous "tick"
The sound of passing time
Arrested by the newest, the latest,
Hands that once rounded an ancient face
Are now circled by circuitry
Bound by electricity behind a glowing square
Incapacitated by laziness
What was once symbolic elegance...
Do not be ashamed of your sensitivity!
It has brought you many riches.
You see what others cannot see,
Feel what others are ashamed to feel.
You are more open, less numb.
You find it harder to turn a blind eye.
You have not closed your heart,
in spite of everything.
I have a friend who is dying of cancer, it is a tragady becuase he is a great person to me. He wrote this this week and i cry when i read it. Broken I need you to read this because sometimes we all fell like life has taken a great big ***** on all of us, but when you see the...
I don't spend a lot of time writing poems. In fact... I never write poems. poetry is not my thing.
But then stumbled upon this group, and sat rhyming for maybe five minutes. consider this my challenge for myself.
I don't have a title, I don't have a meaning, I have terrible...
This is the english translation of Rabindranath Tagore's song...Ekla Chalo Re (Jodi Tor Dak Shune Keu Na Ase Tobe Ekla Cholo Re)..an inspiring song...
If they answer not to
thy call walk alone..
If they are afraid and
cower mutely facing the
O thou unlucky one,
you say you are me but I know I am you.
We blind each other, making it to dark to see
I am you and you are me
We walk the same but have a different style
We talk the same but speak a different language
I fight to be free, you fight to stay, you are always reminding me...
Yes I made up my mind,
But if I made up my mind,
Why am I slowing down?
I see you fade in the distance,
But yet I am still taking my time.
The farther you go
The slower my steps
Now that I see you no more
Your footprints lead the way
I made up my mind to follow you
When it rains at night ,
I know I'm not alright.
Because I think about you,
And I can't help but feel blue.
Thinking of you gets me low,
How I wish it wasn't so.
I see your face when I close my eyes,
But your always waving goodbye.
When it rains at night,
I'm wishing you would...
It's actually an Arabic poem, (I'm Arabian, and I speak both Arabic and English), words are so powerful I had to translate this so you guys could understand. It's called "Seasons that have nothing to do with the four seasons...
am i right or am i wrong
trust and distrust
It is one and the same, I race and cheer
and cry and fear, of death and life
with weed or knife, I run and fall
stand up so tall, to crash
and burn and lift me up, to toss me down
I smile and frown
conflicted self, confliction...
woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the...
Heaven cradles my heart with love
it is what we should all be thinking of
Heaven is lifes ultimate grand prize
its rewarded to those who are wise
Heaven holds Jesus and all his Glory
its time to turn another page in this story
Heaven is all my heart can see
thank you Jesus...
an innocent face, smile of an angel, eyes of blue
Heart of gold, a life to hold.
How I have fooled you all
The ability to light up a room but never a soul.
Second glance it all changed
Dark, cold , lost, nothing to hold
Tears of anger, heart of envy
How could this be this...
Boundaries seemed boundless, crumbling with the echo throughout.
Moments shatter so bright, and fade from your mind like eyes adjusting to the dark. A dream upon waking, life upon sleeping. We are disconnected, or can be.
Losing yourself is easy, and it feels so good.
I will violently shake it, till I am sure of its complete emptiness
I will seal it in the fire of my will
The seal so true, neither light nor darkness could enter
My heart will forever remain empty
I will look into the eyes of the sun, unblinking
Till every image of...
you thought I looked so sweet.
You held me once maybe twice but never stayed to give advice
You became a father by chance but never a father by choice
I looked like you, you never knew
You hated her so gave up me, this made it so hard for me to be free.
but it just occurred to me that i could share my poetry with all of you. Thats exciting, right? Well, here goez :) the title is "Children"
The night, a heavy darkness
Precipitates the moving earth
Contrasting, with great starkness
Joyous colors and the mirth
calling her a freak?
Do you realize,
It makes her feel weak.
I hope your happy,
Because she's at home,
Going through hell.
She sits in her room,
Tears down her face,
All you ever say,
Is she's a waste of space.
She pulls out a razor,
Wanting it to end.
he drew pictures that nobody saw.
He was most artistic late at night,
in the bathroom out of sight.
He kept a secret nobody knew,
he didn't tell a soul and his gallery grew. His drawings were different,
no paper or pen but needed a bandage now and again.
He met this girl...
"I Will Break You" She Said...Born to heart
To love in mind
She took me there
Laid me down
Showed me truth
I had control..."You Do" She Said...
Born in mind
To love from heart
She kissed me there
Showed me truth
I felt strong..."You Are" She Said...
Torn from heart
I lay on the sand bed beside the Red Sun
The winds blowing past me caress me
The waves cover my body
I lay on the lap of the earth
Breaking the shackles of the evil
I lay on the sand as fetus in his mothers womb
As the red sun fills me up with inner light
The winds that caress...
around me for just one moment
While I gather my thoughts
For just one moment
The world's at peace
Then I come back to
The real world and
All corruption let loose again
One moment in time
This is an original from me
Could this be love or infatuation?
I'm feeling right now or just illusion
My heart beats faster day by day
Seeing you around I feel okay
I'm sure its love I'm feeling right now
But family and friends will not allow
Because you are but forbidden love
From my reality
Walking a dirt trail
Not knowing what to do
Trying to find answers
Tears stream down my cheeks
Voices in my head
Voices enjoying my misery
Voices hearing every thought
Voices trying to gain control
I reach the end
At a railroad track
I see the train...
where the sun is like gold,
And the cherry blooms burst with snow,
And down underneath is the loveliest nook,
Where the four-leaf clovers grow.
One leaf is for HOPE, and one is for FAITH,
And one is for LOVE, you know,
And GOD put another in for LUCK --
If you search, you...
the right direction.
If I choose wrong again ill recommend viewers discretion.
Everything has a shiny new feel a picture of promise that I hope is real
I can see further into my future than ever before surrounded by love and so much more
If disappointment should happen my heart...
A glass half full, to one that is empty.
I prefer a renaissance, to the birth of something new.
Love will remain a cheerful butterfly living in the wilds of my imagination.
Like a gazelle on endless fields of green, void of predators.
In this dawn, I’ll reside...
Hapless beholder, I am armed
With patience, prudence and prayers
Though demanding water
Of different sort
No seed survives
Too much water
Nor yet too little
None sprouts before its time
None also delays a second longer
Built to please the eye and subserve the foot...
A chance to blot out our mistakes
And change failure into winning.
It does not take a new day
To make a brand new start,
It only takes a deep desire
To try with all your heart.
To live a little better
And to always be forgiving
And to add a little sunshine
I'm nothing to them but left over meat.
I'm depressed, Why am I still alive?
I do nothing but mock and deprive.
I have no one to pick me up when I am down.
Maybe the best thing for me to do it drown.
Maybe I'll burn in the depths of hell.
Or maybe hang myself...
Nothing to catch me as time went by
Ground below, Space all around
There was no safety net for me to be found
Than you came with surprise
You opened the door
Shed light for my eyes
You showed me love and ways to survive
I had tears of joy running from my eyes
To weep is to risk appearing sentimental
To reach out for another is to risk involvement
To expose feelings is to risk rejection
To place your dreams before a crowd is to risk ridicule
To love is to risk not being loved in return
To go forward in the face of overwhelming...
There is a place that I call my home, There is a place that time passes by...Where the floors carry our souls, Where the windows beckon the light,This is a place where I don't feel alone...Where the walls echo our song, Where pictures of you still fill my mind,This is a...
There is a doorA door that you can only go through when your readyIts not lockedbut its not unlockedIt waits for youIt calls for youand it crys for youThis door is strange but goodIt wishes for your happinessit wishes for your well beingIt wished for your lifeAnd when that door...
so please don't be to brutal I don't have a name for it yet either xxx
I stare out my window painless numb
only to your love could I ever succumb
now you gone it's asif you were never real
a throbbing heart crushed is all i feel
my memory keeps you alive keeps me sane
What is the reason to live?To be hurt?To be killed?What is the reason to live?To know pain?To know heart break?What is the reason to live?To feel hate?To feel anguish?What is the reason to live?To smileTo laughto loveto be lovedto make friendsto build bridgesthen break them down...
eyes are tired I know
But believe me I've had tired eyes too
You ache in pain from your brain you say
Yet you do nothing to stop it
Your tearing holes in your skin just so you can cover them up
Those scares should be worn as battle scares
Your hiding your feelings from the...
I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times…
In life after life, in age after age, forever.
My spellbound heart has made and remade the necklace of songs,
That you take as a gift, wear round your neck in your many forms,
In life after life, in age...
In a world full of lies,
In a world where few care,
In a world full of phonies,
Because the world sees you.
The world hopes for you.
The world is inspired by you.
The world can be better because of you.
This substance seeps
makes my mothers bed
makes my father weep
stuck in the quick sand
unable to move their feet
in their heart lies a lion
that is feeding on the soul
these pressure cracks
are waiting around every corner
looking for the moment to attack
and we foolishly allow
