    Long Distance Love

    Miles of empty air between us, We still manage to love. Through time and space, The affection finds its way. Words cannot take the place Of physical contact. But somehow, Love finds a way.

    Night terrors will take on a new meaning Since

    a new player entered the game She's the world's first blonde, air-headed vampire Her eyes burn in the night like a flame You won't hear her slip in your window For she can move like a piece of the night But if your room is filled with bright baubles She's distracted and...

    Truth often goes unheard,

    at times spoken not a word, fools that can not bear it will give you the bird, it's a shame they do not care, but ignoring it will lead to despair, for if ignorance can be bliss there is no purer example than this. People don't want to admit things: their fears, their tears, the...

    The Hello To My Good-bye The world,

    so beautiful yet so cruel, so peaceful but full of raging wars. Every smile is led by a frown. In the darkness I see it. I see the peace. But when night turns to day. I’m just another person born upon a grave. Are we not all bid a due with the warm welcome of hello when we...

    This is not a poem, but a question.

    I can't help but notice that lots of poems here are kind of dark and full of angst... For those of you who write that way, what is it about those emotions that inspires you?

    Real Pain

    You are lost In faded colours of Summer's smile Memory. The world we had now locks me out I tear and strain in desperate style You drift away, I scream and shout My blood dries in the vein True love just means real pain. You are lost Until moonbeams send you from the skies To cut...

    who looked just like an angel. As she walked toward me, I smiled & wondered what a beautiful girl like her could want with a guy like me. As she approached me, I began to see past her beauty & focus on her heart. She looked really hurt emotionally. As we looked at each other...

    The Winds Of Time

    Titled Hollow. Empty husk of what

    once was, Butterfly soul flown away. Hollow shell; Hollow eyes; All fire dies In the end. Ashes on the wind, Remnants of before. Silence falls. The grave calls But I am already dead and gone.

    The whisper, a quiet,
