We were asked to write a ballad. Would love some feedback, even if it's critical. And tbh idk if I did it right, but here it goes:
There once were two classmates named Kate and Tony.
Her friends encouraged them to date
Since she kept telling them " He looks cute don't 'e"
me he speaks
The gentleness of his solitude
Grief and contentment
in his hands lie
Transparencies of love lost
barefaced in his eyes
Unyeilding strength he lends
in veiled moonlit glow
and ardent adjurations
melt slowly in his snow
In passing 'tis life he...
this addiction **** really blows.
I've cleaned the room now i clean my house.
Keep on my toes, not to offend my spouse.
I got a big mouth. With a blunt mind.
And if you got a problem well no problem of mine.
I just want happiness.... Refined.
I wish it was easy. I wish...
Why do I love you?
Ask why does sunset die
In morning dew.
Why gentle breeze ripples through
Cooling the soul, elations anew.
Why does tempestuous sea,
With passion unquenched
through countless years,
Keep faithful drenched
In a beaming moon.
which stirs within itself.
Each step across the sand covered by rising waters forgetting from whence it came.
Shall love come knocking only to receive no answer.
For the heart's memory so shallow forgets.
But knowing for sure can be painful, too
Waiting forever for the cure
But never looking somewhere new
Complaining because of not knowing
But not researching the solution
Not looking it up, because growing
As a person would entail a resolution.
Knowing would come with...
down at the bottom only spine would shiver.
The quake was so endearing lost her veiw of the past
And she fell into the ocean river couldn't last.
baby blue filled with bruise said she had nothing to loose.
baby blue was a liar. who fell into the fire.
Baby blue met a man...
Wouldn't it mean I was pretty?
If a boy had a crush, I'd think I was enough,
But I never knew if they did and I wouldn't self-pity.
A distant father,
Had left its hole,
I felt all alone, the pain I'd never shown,
Was like a scar in my soul.
I thought I was worthless,
Because of you.
My life has been worthwhile.
This wounded heart just flew
Your sun returned my smile.
An ocean sky turned blue
All stars burn bright with fire
Your sweet love so true
Has sent angelic choir.
With lightning in my veins.
I can't find the will to survive,
Hope why have you abandoned me? Faith why aren't you helping me?
As long as I feel this way I'll never thrive,
All this is so confusing,
Everything aches inside,
I don't want to be sad, all this is making me mad,
You tell me to be...
Aflame with passion embers hide beneath,
awakened by your breath on my neck.
Passion unbridled when our skin meets.
The view within your eyes penetrates my soul.
Missing is your laughter and wit from my conversations.
The comfort of a hug and sleeping next to you is but a dream...
All I can see is the storm cloud,
but where's the silver lining? I just can't stop crying,
I want to scream out loud,
The pain inside is engulfing me,
I hold a scream back in my throat,
I want to rip out my hair, cause it sucks down here,
Thunder storms have sunk this boat,
one that rocks me to the core.
I do my best to hide it,
but I can't deny it anymore.
It has taken hold of this life,
and turned it in-side-out.
Shredding what is left of me,
and filled my head with doubt.
Is this the life I'm meant to live?
Are these walls I've built my own...
There was once
a rocking chair
and beyond repair.
And though humble
and austere, stands a tale,
a lesson dear
There was a man
who sat on this chair
he would get Somewhere.
And he would rock
fiercely so to prove that somehow...
Harmonious ecstasy and
Oxytocin dance through
Every cell you've come into
Oh. My. God.
I never believed in god
until you had me
moaning prayers into
begging for sweet,
sinful, salvation. Your
tongue formulates it's own
scriptures, and I am...
and share poetry with, talk about it, have fun with it. Well i don't know if anyone would just want to share their poetry without reading some of my poetry so here's my latest one (no title as of yet):
Basking in the shadows
cast down on me by
dim yellow light
Hope springs to life with each turn of the page.
A knock at the door and her heart flutters.
Love has come to occupy her soul.
The sun rises to thoughts of hope and each sunset is met in embrace.
A journey hand in hand makes time stand still.
Return to my...
Dancing in the Rain
She grabs my hand and pulls me towards the shoreline for a closer view
We run through the sand towards the waves and surf, it’s just us two
We look out to the horizon and watch the storm clouds rolling in real fast

end is peaceful,
But of this I firmly doubt,
For at its end the river’s foulness comes to an increased lull,
As the river’s delta strains it out,
Oh yes, at the river’s end there is burden of sand,
Much less room for it to run free,
No further will it run, now more will it...
When stars fell
On a lonely street.
Were destined to meet
To defrost frozen hearts.
Where stardust covered love
When they trembled
In their bed.
And passion travelled
from their heart
To way below.
What candlelight dance
Could match the glow...
bashes in the walls of perspective.
It always seems to cover me whole
although its never been my elective.
It washes so fluidly down the back of my throat.
The flavor i could call permanent.
It drifts in boldly like leader ship no holding back liquid currents.
So bitter on...
can you please give me your opinion on it, it would be appreciated!
I want to die
Just say goodbye
And take that knife
To end my life
Because though I try
These lies of mine
Time after time
I'm left alone
With no one home
And so unknown
All on my own
none cares or knows;
My friends forsake me like a memory lost:
I am the self-consumer of my woes—
They rise and vanish in oblivious host,
Like shadows in love’s frenzied stifled throes
And yet I am, and live—like vapours tossed
Into the nothingness of scorn and noise...
Those lines that serve to hold you in
A noble spirits wrinkled skin
Engraved a dignity so deeply sunk in
Upon the cover wearing thin.
Emotion in motion of a thousand yesturday's
Gently crinkle upon the page
So novel is this coming of age
A distinguished script upon the stage...
Seeing nothing, I see everythingHere in this dark prisonThe light seldom permeatesDeliberate, though I concentrateIs nothing more than emptinessThere is nothing but a holeSpiral deeper, downwardsShould I not find the end?Seeking something, finding nothingHear the flutter of tiny...
In sea of loneliness, your eyes draw me in close
My nightmares disappear, as my attraction grows
More and more I want to see you and listen to your soul
Your kiss is like a key in my life, Can you make me whole?
I reach out to hold you and I will never loosen my grip...
Yes the eve, latter part of the day,
The locomotive heaved to the stress of its engine,
Yet the track seemed to sway,
The conductor, oh so uncertain,
His sweat gave away his hidden fear,
The rail would no longer hold the burden,
The train’s demise was certainly near,
very very very
maybe you will stop seeing me
or I’ll become some distant point of light
and you’ll look for a moment
and then move on
because you just lost interest
Then you’ll take the pressure
of your eyes
off of me
and I can escape
start from the end,
of something forlorn or wonderful
or something that simply began
Cease to use never
on what is still to become
even things that may not,
l'est you yearn that fickle crown.
Refrain to say never
to see the endless beyond
look to countless possibilities
In this **** hole I don't feel free.
This is so hard for me I don't understand ****,
Every time I look at my grades I take a hit because I'm failing.
People think I don't take it seriously, but I do and in their eyes I'm lying.
I try my hardest to progress.

with a beam,
It blazed through the crevices of my mental process,
Because of it I felt sharper, more keen,
The memory capsules seemed less repressed,
For my inner persona sparked the kindling of my minds dead underbrush,
The warmth of the emotion ensued the cracking away of the...

of forgotten sun.
A devil moon
this sky has spun
with burning tapestry.
and are to be.
in the silence
Of a purple sea.
dancers of eternity,
of golden morning.
With twinkling eyes
Love will come again.
Like softest summer rain
On sleeping fields of flowers.
Fragrant and new.
Sunlit and blue.
She leaves her ivory towers
And calls my name
On sweetest birdsong breeze.
Through the trees.
Time can't tame.
You see beyond the looking glass.
You are omniscient and bold.
The stars in your eyes
Give way to galaxies unknown.
Not an ounce of common sense applies.
Swirls of blue, green, purple, silver
Screaming of brilliance, never ending.
Entirely unique, your skin is...
with heaven in my hands
the dowry of a journey
Imbued whence began
O toil and plight exacting
as peaks wax and wane
the comfort of now knowing
the end to my disdain!
How soon 'tis peregrination?
I cannot but acquiesce
The early termination
time has lent with extent
The things I've said to you
Not even u should hear.
I don't know how to love
I guess I never learned.
u give me everything
And nothing in return.
I promise I will try
If u give me a chance.
I'll say the things I should
Without a second glance.
So i'll give u my heart...
all these thoughts in my head...
Matter only to me,
for they're seldom read.
Few people take interest,
in these things that I say...
Should I linger in this place?
Or just merely fade away?
I've tried to make friends here,
but have been burnt in the past...
When they get to...
I get no acknowledgement at all.
You chose to shut me out on here,
But before you made that call...
You chose to post an experience,
venomous words that put me down.
I wish it were just a bad Dream...
but this face still wears the frown.
You are delicate petals of my flower.
The joyous sun at waking hour.
You saturate my soul
Like april shower.
And you glow
Like a sunset sinking,
A fond goodnight.
You teem in silver cascade.
I sit and watch
Through sun kissed forest glade
As you bloom
Colors withered . . . set to fly
Spill from oaks of autumn skies.
Reds and russets spoiled brown
Now puddle on the forest ground.
Yet rising high for all to see
Their nakedness stood certainty
The skeletons that once bore leaves
A sacrifice amongst the tree's.
Their bony fingers...
You beautiful sun
That frees the trees
From winter embrace
Enabling flowers to show their face.
You revive lonely spires
And light exquisite fires
Of sunsets high.
That dress of blue
That you shine through
We can call the sky.
And as she stood solo
In meadow still
You lit her...
Troubled by desire
My home is caving in.
Wanted God to touch me
To reach right inside
But when he viewed me
My mind tried to hide
I'm scared of nudity
SO he tried to bribe
And when it was the devil
I wasn't even surprised
But I'm a survior,
I've been hurt, I've been bruised,
I've been neglected, I've been used,
But I'm alive,
So what if I'm just surviving?
So what if I'm not thriving?
I'm alive, thank the Lord I'm alive,
When I was thirteen I had suicidal thoughts,
Though I'd heard the Holy...
as she sits...
A game of chance
too high the cost..
A false smile
A glass dream
so real it seemed..
......Lyss.... I wish I didn't care so much sometimes...it hurts..
I'm dangerous, I'm neglected
That's why my emotions are so cold
The truth is a passive thought
Seeking something that cannot be found
Looking for who stole your spirit
While I'm here, just messing around
I'm not who you want to be with
I'm not who you think I am
The time has come to say goodbye,
Leave all the memories we share behind.
The love I had was pure and true,
But you left me sad and blue.
Looking towards a brand new day,
Without my heart standing in the way.
L O V E U N C O N D I T I O N A L + = Love unconditional - all senses are employed Your touch - your scent - your voice - your lovliness My heart responds - my heart is overjoyed Together we're a hand in glovliness ! Love unconditional - such love with such...
Lonely as the wind I reach like a
Falling climber for you
Desperate pumping heart
waiting to hit the ground
Without a sound
I scream inside as nobody hears
Two souls as one I lay in the night
My gaze fixed on black
Where you once breathed close to me
Your eyes a beacon...
Is it a feeling, or something more?
Is it desire, a slow burning fire,
Is it life itself?
Is it a dream, or a soft touch -
the ghost of a summer breeze?
Love is kind, love is warm
Love is life, passion, desire
With something more...
Love is like a beautiful dream.
and with some of the responses myself and others get on here I might not for a while yet... this is was written ten minutes ago just felt the desire to write
The gnaw of a heartless whisper
breeds the wound of goodwill
echoes from the distance
in coldness most pain...
And watch you fall asleep
We don't even have to touch
Or even have to speak
I want to watch you close your eyes
And dreamily drift away
Secure in the knowledge
that our love won't ever fade away
I want to wake up
next to you
and hear you softly breath
feel your heartbeat...
Emotions ooze out of porous blisters, where troubled thoughts reside.
The body crumples under the weight.
"Can you hear me?"
"Am I alive?"
There is no answer.
The puddle thickens and tightens its grasp until finally, the privilege of breath is no more.
"Invading Points Of Structured Light"
I can feel sound decomposing
and filling with a rotten substance
today I bled on a rose thorn
tomorrow I never remember
I've also heard the sound of death
for I need guidance
shattered sense of misgiving
the isolated hymn for peace
