    Flame (Don't Make Fun Please.)

    Before you read my poem you should know it uses symbolism, and it's free verse poetry. Flame By: Myusername22 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. New...

    To Find Again, The Way.

    Out of the void, the life of every day. No fanfare, or clashing of symbols, but a soft “hello”. Why me? I whisper in case I am heard to doubt, Am I man enough to return the greeting? Into the light the sylph takes form, youth and beauty but unaware, she plays with me...

    Awake At 300 Am

    To Those Who Have The Gift.

    It takes a special person to make another smile, and special thoughts from special sorts to do it all the while. Among the few I’ve come across, I really mean a few Count all of them on just one hand, among them there is you. So please don’t stop, or stay away, but...

    We All Have Our Demons

    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...

    Don't give in to the emptiness; There's

    so much more to life than this, Feeling of hopelessness... And despair, That seems to come from nowhere It's bright outside; Yet I can't hide, this feeling deep down inside, Can I make it through another night? Can everything just be alright?

    Our body is a cage. A prison

    for our feelings. Our voice is silenced. Our cries ceased. When will we be free? How can this end? When did it even begin? We are slowly dying. From the inside out.
