Shadows ask To speak under low breath, A campfire burns With pinion twigs Scavenged from Old Dolores Land, still she cries A forgotten martyr words now frail Sentiments, in the Pitch of night, The curse breathes Through the sand
The sky had darkened From fire smoke from the East The river flows with garbage Smelling like rotting flesh It was warm There was nothing to excite the body Or delight the eyes Everything had the shadow Of disappointment Even the birds Have given up singing their song (Tell me dear reader, Do you have the time to be strong?) All I can do Is wait for the rain To wash it all along
I just didn’t expect the tears at least not mine I was ready for everything else or so I thought I just didn’t expect the pain or to be asked to explain I just didn’t expect the blame or to be asked to explain
u see the knife you watch the glow u see me smile but can't hear me cry u think i'm happy but inside i'm breaking u see the blood then u realize that i wasn't lying when i said i'm depressed! u wish u gave me the support i needed but now it's too late. I'm dying inside...
I used to read your poems but lately you don't write you're silent and aloof you know that isn't right. You can't close a door once opened you can't abolish all your dreams you're a poet of the heart mustn't fall apart at the seams. Say what you can in words they speak the message true spoken from the heart the poems will see you through. A hermit's not your style a recluse, you are not never give up writing of things that you've been taught. I used to read your poems I'd read them once again if you would send them out (this one's from a poet friend)
The tragedy is there's a prison in my mind all the thoughts that lurk there are ones I wish were never mine they etch into my heart the scars I wear so bright
They whisper wicked stories of things that never happened or maybe things that did things that shouldn't create ripples in the current in my life but here I lay in bed stuck awake at night eyes cutting blankly through the nothingness of my cold and dark bedroom
I don't feel special, I'm not unique. I want to cry but I can't even speak. My hands reach out, but they cannot hold a single thing but the bitter cold. Everything's frozen, I feel lost. Even my tears have turned to frost. When I cut my waist it bleeds black. I'm so deeply gone there's no way back. This is goodbye
I’m sorry you love a damaged heart, I only know two sides to a story, either heartfelt or torture. It’s hard to put down my shields that’s been guarding me for years. I’m sorry I’m the one you wanted, It’s not too late to walk out.
They said, "The most beautiful art is looking into someone's eyes when they talk about the things they love." And I said, "Or looking at someone you love. Or maybe, just maybe, by looking at the mirror is the most beautiful art anyone should appreciate."
Appreciation post for myself; for you and for everyone as well. You deserve more than the world has to offer.
I never quite understand why people fear being alone. I've come to love my peace and solitude and it's not something I'm eager to open to someone else. When you fight as hard as I have fought to gain power over your own life, you are not eager to invite someone else into your sanctuary. So am I picky and discerning about who gets a pass into my heart and my space? Lol you bet your cute *** I am and I make no apologies for it. Not everyone values the treasure of peace.
There are lots of noughts in millions lots of trees in acres and winds will blow in gales and thunder can roar in white skies and labourers will do labour and will always lean oh study trees or find its shade to hide underneath some things never change
I love him I tell myself I know that We will be together forever I don’t believe that We could be separated My thoughts tell me that He’s the love of my life Sometimes my heart lies and says I could live an eternity Without him Like my friends say “We’re perfect for each other” And you can’t tell me He’s not the one.
Whether a comma, or colon: Punctuation slows my rolling I need no period. When I end no Capitalization when I begin Rulelessly I flow my art Not a single! Exclamation mark Are you not the one Who'll know? Where a question mark No longer goes
Warp the structure Bend the lines Put in repeat Let emotion unwind Make yourself Your poetry's the best Be your own ruler Pass your own test
Take your own road Where ever it leads Lover or hater It's all poetry!

Hay No matter who you are You have my deepest respect!
Vanity All is vanity The meanings of passion The aesthetic expression The lines we draw and stay within Even love is beyond intent Vanity transcends Flowing from our pens And so we breathe again
