I just wanna leave
everything and everyone
Just to see who'll find me
In the crowd of thousands
Will ever someone actually
be bothered about my absence
I wanna sit back and watch

Meet me,
Dancing in the pouring rain
with nothing left to lose.
Their lips touched in the autumn air,
under the tree he had always loved.
his hair tickled his chin,
they both giggled,
what a sin.
if this is sin, so be it
love, burst, explosions that I will die for.
their hands tangled with such scandal
the roman air smelled nice
they saw their graves
but nothing came with more worth
than the ritual of love.
My skin is ripping because my monsters are getting bigger, my troubled mind is exploding and my soul is reaching for the stars.
Am I going to survive this? I've never doubted surviving but this time is different, this time nor my monsters or my soul want to fight. We want to rest, they want to rest, I.. want to rest. I want peace.
I don't want distractions nor am I looking for them, I don't want friends nor am I looking for them.. That's exactly it, I am not looking for anything nor am I looking forward to ****. Unless it's peace but I'm not looking for it. I am just waiting for it.
It's just not the same
darkness swirls
but there's no light
no will left to fight

I miss you
and your semblance of right

So, I send my love out in the breeze
take it, take me, if you please
Mauricious Maurice
My night just got longer ,
My comfort just got fortified,
Fortified with toxins,
Am doing a research a research of my own heart,
Am doing a search a search of my own pieces of heart,
I thought I was in summer sunny beach only to wake up in Amazon forest predators at my tail,
I took you as my Queen not knowing I was a servant to you
It's where there is smoke fire is you blinded my eyes to see the smoke
My wounds are still fresh ,fresh than fish from a fresh water lakes.
My tears of emotions are crying , crying for help ,help of survival.
I built an empire on top of an oacen and now the tides have washed it away.
I jubilate in tribulation in relationship
Am weathering in my in my island of a broken heart
My sweat memories tormenting my memories
My broken heart
Renee Danes
I never judged
Your flag
Your views,
Who you love,
I never intend to,

I love you rainbow friends
I have a lot of Trans and *** friends, etc. and when I hear people talking about them in a negative way in that aspect... I want to beat the *^% out of the bully's. People should be able to be who they want to be without people saying it's wrong.
Serious sticky sugar heat
Baited me when I hated that pretty girl.

Crazy, I dug so deep
Doubt tip-high nights with a facade of trust.

Busting through a shroud of hell,
you made,
and hid,
cuz you're such a sharp gal.

And we both found it when we found ourselves
in a ***** bottle after a night of happy chances.

After flirty advances,
a shell ripped off my legs.

I sign that I was just another,
One of your nicely sculpted dregs.

Immediately, really,
I'll shut up.
Georgia Kereopa
words magicked from air
dance joyfully on the page
sprouting wings to soar
I dream for you to come one day
A man who'll love me the same way
A love that's pure
And truth I know
Together forever
We will grow
Sail thru galaxies
Discover unknowns
Together forever
Buried our bones

What will they leave you
only the worst of what's yours
best to have nothing

                         Kelly McManus
maybe the reason you run from some people
is because you are afraid to see yourself within them

Pour down upon me
Fill my nose with your scent
My eyes with your cascading droplets
My ears with your pitter-patter
My hands filling to become small pools
My mouth with your refreshing and cool take-over

Calm me
Then release me
Make me wild
Laughter erupting from deep within

O, what a wonder!
O, what a blissful time!

Bring me life
Make me anew

I refuse to even indulge in empty promises.
No more will I accept husks of words
That float on air because they hold no weight to them.

I need rock hard, solid, ground breaking actions because words
Were dangled in front of me for so long.

A carrot on a stick,
Leading me further into the dark.
Guiding me into cages of expectations.

No more.
No more.
You had me at my best,
I had you at your worst.

You left me at worst,
She had you at your best.
you caught me off guard
but deep down I knew
I felt a stirring
the pull of a connection yet shaped
we danced with our words
cautious then bolder
each step entwined with your confidence and my curiosity
before I knew it
I was lost in the music
colored by the lyrics of your thoughts
Naysayers are bystanders
meant to only see the clouds thicken as you climb
and to only smell the dust of your triumphs.

Haters are takers
of your brilliant shine
and elysian decent

You are delightfully masterful!
and in some small way...  you are      Godly!
Because the earth’s round
Doesn’t mean it’s  having a ball.

Because waves crash
Doesn’t mean that they aren’t in control.

Because the sea is deep
Doesn’t mean that it’s thoughtful

Because land meets the sea
Doesn’t mean that they agree

Because you float my boat
Doesn’t make me the captain.
Five little ten worders to ponder.
If one considers love to be a poison,
Does that mean that if after enough doses,
The patient will develop an immunity?
Assuming of course that the doses aren't lethal,
Which is sometimes the case.
I'm always falling in love
Loving someone like
I've never been hurt before
And i guess that's what i do best
Loving someone
that doesn't love me back
When the sky is shrouded
with darkness of expectation,
When the day is filled with
screams and abuses.

There comes the night
where misty eyes caress
the sleeping soul with immense love
depicting that, in the midst of darkness
of anger and frustration,
resides pure love which
still lingers around to keep the bond
strong enough and not to let it falter
These words are for me,
For I'm the one who's hurting,
I'm just healing myself.
I often wonder why we can't understand other's poems sometimes, but deep down it is the one who writes it knows the value of it.
Because sometimes,
paper is the only one
who listens.
A cuddle is bliss
It’s warm cozy and lovely
And makes your heart bloom

Xxxx ❤️❤️❤️
I got that CD today
from that band that you really like.
It cost $20 but
I didn’t really mind.
And it smelled like french coffee in my car
and it tasted like a spectrum of blue
and I decided it felt like you.
Ivan Lopez
Me in your fire
and let the drips
sear me in pain

My flesh with acid
till my very bones
become like tears

Me like death
that has appeared
at my door

and Take,
All that I have
and I promise
to be yours
I received some bad news of a friend. I only wish I communicated with him more often instead of ignoring him all these years. I only hope he forgives me.
They’ll paint pictures of you without knowing your true colors.
I’ve dealt with this my whole life but it’s never effected me like it has now.
No matter what, I feel like I will always be misunderstood/misjudged/mislabeled.
Sorry this isn’t even poetry.
Oskar Erikson
draw, across my collarbone
the length of your tongue.
all there is to taste in your mouth, is home
and all i am is chewing gum.
Dennis Willis
I am open to some web
some web of energy
and being
that scares me
I think it will
swamp me

Dark nights
              wild thoughts
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!
Explanation 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!
Traveler Tim
No matter who you are
You have my deepest respect
I love you all!!

Who said explanation marks were merely laughing at your own joke?!
If you could read my mind,
You’d see a thousand papers
Filled with broken poetries
And deadbeat proses
Full of woeful verses
With mournful pieces
Of unfinished stories
That are yet to be written
And failed to be spoken;
If you could read my mind,
You’d hear horrible screams
And earsplitting weeps
From shattered dreams,
Kept in a nasty notepad,
Scribbled on a bed
Of bloodstained words,
Ringing in my head.
If you could read my mind,
You’d see the shadows
That lurk within me;
You’d hear the bellows,
Screeching the words
“I’m tired,”
“I’m a failure,”
“I’m stupid –”
I know it sounds stupid,
It’s pathetically foolish
And seems too *******.
If you could read my mind,
You’d feel the tears
I had ever failed to cry;
You’d see the people
That make the weak weaker;
You’d see the monsters
That consume my head;
You’d hear the hollers
That failed to be freed;
You’d see the heart
That still bleeds and bleeds.
If you could read my mind,
You’d see the face
I’ve failed to show back then,
The face I’ve faked back then.
If you could read my mind,
You’d see a character
I had ever failed to become
If you could read my mind,
You’d be able to read
A book you never wished
To touch and read,
But sometimes I still wish
Someone could read my mind.
I wore it again
and people complimented me
they say red is my color
and it suits me.

it's too thick and dark
did I overapply
no, it's the right amount
just enough
to make them think
I'm fine.

I look at myself
in the mirror,
and they're right
red shines on me,
so I applied
another layer,
and another
until my lips felt too thick,
but my eyes still see
the scars beneath it.
he's here

and once again i fall slowly
light as a feather
gravitating to the river
to be washed away
by the peaceful flow

We fell in love by chance,
We stay in love by choice.
In the ocean of people
There's always a beautiful pearl
You can never see her in a shallow water
She's always in the deep
If you happened to have found her, take care of her and keep

She's one of a kind
She's hard to find
You need to swim across the deep dark ocean
Just to see her glamour- as she shines.

She comes in a range of colors
White, black, or gray
Keep her, due to her rarity
Blue, lavender, and purple
She's soft, pure, innocent yet powerful

If you already have found your pearl
Please don't overlook or take her for granted
Good pearls are rare
that no amount on earth can ever make you worthy of her

Velvety sunshine
Fields of golden marigolds
Chasing cirrus clouds

While on a road journey to hometown!! :)

"I dont know"
Ask me if its okay to stay and sleep
"I dont know"
Ask me where I want to eat
"I dont know
Ask me if i want to leave

Ask to hold my hand
Ask to kiss me

Ask to love me
