We didn't talk much. Silence was pierced with long exhales followed by cigarette smoke that was circling around us.
We didn't talk much, but I remembered...
If I die today
Would you make a movie
Out of me
Remember me in pictures
Black or white
And let your memories
Fill me with new colors
I had no life
Would you remember the...
Siren of the Deep
I find your footprints that lead this rocky shore. Scraps of your clothing tossed apart without sanity. Cold hearts of treason that runs amok. The pure madness...

I took a seat to look outside,
My coffee cup in hand.
The sun had yet to raise its head,
To spread its warmth upon the land.
God, I'm scared.. I'm scared that I won't accomplish anything.
My family doesn't notice me.
I'm like an aspiration that just walks by and just startles people at times. Everyone...
Every night I stay awake
With my head just spinning around and around and as time goes by. Over thinking consumes me, death gripping on me , crawling on my skin, head to toe...
We set out for life and had a plan
To raise a family, make a home
We both pitched in offered our hand
You did some and I did some
Yet another half just happened
In reminiscence of my sister - who died in childbirth complications - a very strange way to die in 1986 in the US.
(Kit died the Sunday before Thanksgiving in 1986)
I saw a...
Then I Wrote
I want to tell you what I'm feeling
But i cant bring the courage to speak
No matter how hard i try
My voice becomes so weak
So i found a better way
Got out me pen to...
I always feel the urge to write but I end up discarding it because it doesn't sound right , or because it seems corny .
But then I'm not being true to myself...
I don't want to work, on this gloomy *** day
Don't want to go out, not even to play
Just feel like writing.. my day away
I don't care to write, all sorts of fluff
That's what my...
Every song I sing I don’t feel,
Every breath I take, “Am I real?”,
“Where should I sit?”
On the ground?
6 feet under?
Sometimes you are inspired to write things just because they are hard. One of my poems took three years to complete because of the complexity. I love twisting words with two or...
So hi. I'm not really going to share a poem today. I'm here to tell you about my love for poetry
It is not only a form literature
But also a source of happiness and pleasure
You seem so confident
Dressed sharp to represent
During the morning commute
You have places to be and things to do
I'll see you again in the evening
After taking the day's...
I'm just gonna sit behind the keyboard ( again ) and start typing word's, and just see where it goes?
I got up this morning, and rolled out of bed
Fell on the floor and banged up...
Mind filled with weakness
I know you and I could do better
Tired of walking life with lack of self expressions and needs of out lacking depression
Always wondering were my dreams...
I don't know if I can call this a poem. 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...
Before anyone panics, I'm fine. I've channeled someone else's experience to write this one and incorporated some of the advice from this weekend's jam session to help it flow...
Think, think, brain just please think.
As words flow thru my head, and rivers begin to form, I'm stuck here, wondering in a corner.
I don't feel as though tears are needed anymore...
poetry is very important to me, i love to write. ive written some wonderful deep thoughts.
I thought I'd try an urban throwdown to compete with the country songs about the boys 'round here. It's a work in progress because I'll need to determine if it gets sung like a...
I know this sounds unbelievably egocentric but, I really do enjoy when people ask questions about my writing on this app. I like when people have different interpretations of what...
she of silk
draped in lace
wrapped in woe
drowned in chaste
gone the dreams
in drops of hope
the longing dies
the flower wilts
she of silk...
Used to at least. It's been downhill for a while. There's no flow, nothing goes. Not sure why, but it's just not there anymore.
