10 feet away,I’ve lost the strength or will to say.The trail was once was so full and bright.I fall asleep this lonely night. Youthful days when I was me,Of sunny days when I was free.Remind me of the life yet known,Among them all, I feel alone. When I was...
Your old mans old quiet lesson.
Let the smaller ones go, they still have a life to grow.
Sometimes you'll drag up branches from the bottom, and sometimes you'll lose a good one.
And sometimes while you're reeling in your line, you'll realize you're trying to catch yourself.
both worlds, but I'm a god damn galaxy.
Together we could have been a universe.
Instead he chose a star that'll burn so bright it destroys itself leaving him with no light.
And while he fumbles in the darkness he'll see the twinkles of the constellations i left behind.
afternoon, feet aching, sweat beading down your forehead and a smelly man in front of you, you've been standing in the same spot for oh about an hour and you're pretty sure that bird near the trash can is a animatronic, in some strange miracle the line takes one step forward...
something to kill some time
I know you're compelled to see me
To figure me out, to ***** me down
But I won't let you, I can't
You tell me that you die every single day
Because you know you're so close to finding what you need
So close that it become overwhelming
You need it...
And dragons breathing fire
I saw skeletons and demons
And the ugliest old vampire
There are monster and banshees
And rats with big teeth
There are zombies and dead guys
With my funeral wreath
I know that I heard harpies
And maybe a grizzly bear
Don't give me...
You won't believe what I just heard.
I promised I wouldn't say a word.
But you're my friend, so you I'll tell.
I know you'll keep it to yourself.
Come, I'll whisper in your ear;
I don't wouldn't want someone else to hear.
Now what I've told...
mean spirited spite of slaves. Disguised as capitalism, **** talking to their graves. What do all humans want, deep down, to feel safe and belong? Competitive rabies, The ego will always lose, something is wrong.
Deep down we all want to belong, sing our song and be...
bleeding the colors of yellow, red, deep shades of orange fading to dark purples, fading yet still to darkest of skies. He takes his slumber for the night, turning his reign over to his queen of the sky, with her soft moon light. With her she brings the soft twinkling of the...
sometimes go,When the shadows fall long,My mind drift back to aged memories,Of the crashing waves of my dreams.In the dappled sunlight of green and blue,The cooling blue breeze refreshes,Sharpening my resolve yet again,To peer once more into my yesterday.The lid’s creaky...
beyond your words
I thought you would love me with the strength of a storm
I was totally wrong
You are just a soft breeze
You can't reach my soul
You are playing with fire
You can't burn my desire
You are a little dreamer
You don't worth my time.
hot and hurtful sand
that grow nothin' but
rise'n in the scorch'n,
inside cold minds,
whole cloth lies
stink putrid with
that cracks young will.
inside cold hands,
stings wide eyes
and galls thin flesh.
You are my life
You are my light
Your so sweet like honey
Your sometimes so sweet, you melt my heart
You make me smile every time i see you
You make me blush every time i see you
You take my breath away
Your always there for me
Your always in my heart
Nothing makes me happier...
something you want
you never look at me that way any other time
stalling and waiting, we're wasting f*cking time
I do it every time I'm with you that's probably why time flys by.
sighing, I can't stand to look at you right now.
I want your attention
don't talk to me
game, so we'll play extra innings, and make some overtime plays. I am so happy we finally got drafted on the same team. I'll deffently induct you into my heart's hall of fame.
Call the scouts back, no new talent left to aquire. You are love's MVP. I present to you now my heart...
The silvery remnants of activity,
Reveals the hidden pathways of snail.
The network, a labyrinth of tunnels,
Leads me close to the working ants’ trail.
A cavern warm and dark beneath hedges,
Stores a visitor who reveals all at night.
With its prickly features it endears me...
Light scars glimmer on these wrists
You see my scars when I turn and I twist
Right in plain sight but nobody sees, right in plain sight take a good look at me
Long dark hair, caramel skin
Beauty outside and hatred within
Sin in my blood and blood on my hands
Before you read my poem you should know it uses symbolism, and it's free verse poetry.
My flame used to roar at one point.
Orange, yellow, and red bursting brightly.
Happy I stayed.
No worries but to go play.
Years past and my flamed has dulled.
not fake, but one that'll last.
We all have worries, these times are uncertain
I don't want preached at, l myself will remove the curtain
The curtain falls, and darkness once more
Comes, brooding to the fore
I can't say what l really feel or want to say
I can't find the...
One look from you, I bare my soul
Rarer than you will ever know
Forbidden love, friend or foe
I cannot hide, what I cannot show
Exquisite torture, I hesitate
Led by longing, lust, or fate
But through every pulse, you resonate
Made all the sweeter for the wait
Touch me now with...
as he walked away,
For there was nothing left to say.
The words they once exchanged,
Were simply rearranged.
She began not caring anymore,
As she danced alone on the floor.
The music that filled her head,
Erased the lies that were said.
As she danced around the room,
when you look at me? What do you see, when you think of me? What do you dream, when you dream of me?
Do you see, the frightened little girl, that hides inside? Do you see, the woman afraid to be free? Do you see, me holding together a tattered heart?
I often wondered, and...
Lost without a smile,
Tears that flowed with the wind,
Each night and day,
I close my eyes and dream of hope,
The shattered emptiness crushed my soul.
The cracks in my fragile heart slowly slipped away,
I look to the sky as my wrists cry,
I find hope in the darkness,
We can't forget our past no matter how hard we try.
But the tears we cry ,can wash away the demons inside.
It doesn't take much for our past to return.
A sound or a song, and those memories burn.
I wish we could forget the thoughts that haunt our soul.
So we could look forward...
It's been brewing inside me for sometime but I don't have a safe place to write. Someone might ask why I'm crying... I don't know if this is a finished work. Just thought I would share.
A child whose heart was chiseled away
Piece by piece
This is its currently completed form..I'm not sure if I will edit it in the future though..as something still feels missing..but..not missing.
I have lived a thousand lives in your eyes,
Painted portraits of a thousand angels
In trying to capture you on canvas.
I have seen the...
Dreams of youth eternal.
The sweetheart of all she touched.
The heady laugh that charmed all men.
The world at her feet she embarked
A journey of such cruel outcome.
Yet how could she have known,
That the end would be so far away?
The night is cold though,
Cecilia turned up...
don't let anyone in
Be nothing, don't let anyone see you
Don't let them see you, don't get too close, the closer you get the harder the blows
Silly girl, silly girl, you should've known, the truth doesn't just hurt it kills the soul
Be what they want you to be, stay in your...
Let me fall and disappear,
Let me become non-existent anymore,
Push me off I beg you,
My hands are burning me from holding onto this rope,
I’m holding on, thinking you are still holding onto the other end,
I’m wrong, I’m foolish, I’m stupid, reckless for letting my heart...
It touches me softly, I almost miss its grace, I am not sure if it is love or just love disguised as hate
I've thought i've known love but this I am not sure, for my heart beats with passion but not with passion pure
Love seems to be in my reach, it slides through my...
We trek across an amorphous dream
Vague shapes weave into obscurities
Drawing me in
Extending a hand behind a smiling guise.
Spiral front and then back again
In a barrel we spin in disarray
Reaching to wipe the tears from another eye.
Mind eclipses everything...
My stepson arrived whilst we were away,
Oblivious was I on that wonderful day.
My husband, he knew, his child would be born,
Between son and his wife, emotions were torn.
I never found out until much later on,
For a whole ten months, the prize I had won.
The confession it came...
except for one thing, they have four feet.
so tiny and pink,
makes us often wonder and think.
They put such smiles upon our faces,
running and playing in their own little oasis.
They've never known such pain or fear,
they are ours to...
Just trying to find my way like everyone else ,
With these blue eyes there's a story to tell.
A war on my mind but still moving forward ,
Sailing into the sunset where the birds chew crate and murdels.
Like a butterfly born after a storm I conquer these challenges,
On a quest...
than life, a confident man,
With much more hair on his face than his head.
He stands relatively tall with his shoulders so broad,
Pretty much fills the entire six-foot bed.
His kindness within, he’s a positive soul,
With humour never failing to amuse.
He dresses in shorts, or...
I was just a child,
and you a man,
now I'm an adult,
look at me if you can.
I'm no longer the child,
You sought to destroy,
the innocent life,
you claimed as your toy.
now let's see you hurt me,
let's see you try,
but you can't hurt me,
as I'm stronger inside.
You stole the child...
Beauty, love, all the things that I need
I'm lacking, I'm lacking, I never succeed
I'm forever in need, always in want
And all I can do is sit and watch
As you give away those things I need
To everyone but never me
How easily they fly from your arms
To those who I see...
class. It was to write a story or poem from a child's point of view.
There were others too. Write from the opposite genders point of view, animal point of view. And a few others.
I had fun with this one. I hope you will too.
OUCH MY KNEE
I live in a car
that's been burned out for years.
The guy that was driving,
His bones are still here.
I was with him when it happened.
We were both drinking beer.
We went off a cliff.
The fire burned up our tears.
I am waiting for judgment.
My soul shakes with fear.
Theres a Man with a heart of gold
Does he know this has he been told?
He sees the world so logically
Emotions and feelings he says dont come easily
He has many wise words for people to hear
Those who listen are the ones he holds dear.
The lyrics he writes are his personal game...
not, we ask why
When, for us life is good, we forget to care
To love others, to listen and to share
The sun shines high up in the sky
The world below, rotates, not asking why
We forget others have worries and strife
Stressed by daily struggles and what is called life
what and why you would cast some thing of such beauty and power aside.....like waves rolling into tides.... tearing down.... breaking .....apart.... lost then found like heaven and hell....rolled into one.....
Soldiers marched all night
inside the houses families cried
the townspeople were affright
people fled having nowhere to hide
One man spoke to the people as they fled
Crying:"be strong, fight, never give in"
But the people looked at him nothing said
He realized his fate he knew...
