You told me that
If she makes you want to write poetry
She's special

Does that make you special?
Because you make me want to write poetry

It's difficult
Lily Barrett
I’ve been told I have walls,
That aren’t too easy to break,
They’ve been up for so long,
That my smile is entirely fake.
They’re made of unshed tears and a broken soul,
Of emotions that have taken their costly toll.
Tear them down if you feel you must,
But it takes too much to gain my trust
Strip me down to every pebble and stone,
Shatter me like a mirror and break me to the bone,
But don’t you see you’ve already lost,
For even my walls have a cost.
My friends say that I keep too much of it inside...I'm working on it guys I promise
Pilar Orozco
Turns out
I’m nothing
To anyone I want to matter to
that tattoo in the finger " you wish"
We always bother
Another with our problems
Leaving them would be the best
If we could hide our sadness
As well as our secrets on our chest
We would be better
The crimson red paint of my heart,
I took it out and drew a painting on the wall.
The judgements-laced to my body,
I shaped and tied them into a bow.
In the lips that trembled for your name,
I smeared some black lipstick on.
Ripped off that white dress,
Threw away your coat,
I put on my high heels,
Now I am dancing with my ego.
You have a certain magnetism
I can't define it
I see your north and it's pointing
at my direction

I have never been this close to
falling in and out of love
within days
my heart is a stranger

I write songs to lull me to sleep
I envy the words that keep me sane
Hearing your heart beating to my voice
was all I wanted
not until yesterday

I have never been this close to you
not until yesterday you are all I want
I have never been this close to
falling in and out of love
within days

my heart is a stranger
my head is in a daze
it's raining while you're away
it's raining every day
Antigone Awkward
My wings  aren't feathered
And my wings  aren't white,
They're leather  like a bat's
And I only  fly at night,
My tongue is forked,
My feet are claws,
You broke my heart
And now I'll feast on yours.
Hannah Marie
why is it
we grieve for someone
we don’t know

we feel the emotion
we’d feel if
we lost a family member

but we didn’t know them
but we felt like we did
felt they knew us

the collective feeling
of welcomeness
in their existence

it’s strange
how a stranger’s death
can break us down

but it does
and it’s real
so grieve

grieve for them
the love you felt for them
was real

the grief you feel
is real
so feel it

feel it with as much intensity
as you would
someone you know

because you did
so grieve
it’s allowed
I shall be happy once that evil devil is in hell.
Trying its best to destroy Gods work right here.
But the truth to be kmow is God can use everything.
For his purpose here on the earth and  Hellopoetry.
For sometimes while we are at our very worst here.
He can use us to reveal himself through us here on the earth.
Thus revealing that it was not us but his Spirit within us.
That has done that miracous thing that he done through us.

Morning Haiku
27 January 2019

Morning is hard boiled.
The eggs exhaust, an old car.
I could smell better
he's summer
his body
smells like citrus
like the June wind
lonely soul,
tell him
that i love summer.
I always thought we were the perfect match.
But matches are meant
                                   to ignite
                                         and burn out.
you dimmed the lights
closed your eyes
and so did i.

still felt the weight
and all the pain
when you left marks on my thighs.

i just laid there
weren’t you aware
that i didn’t want to die?

though out of sight
out of mind
you heard me cry.
Jerome Brown
5 feet tall but burned through the bones in me.
Long hair drifted with the winter breeze.
Found you broken on a fallen knee, locked you in my heart with a master key.
Made you see the beauty without the beast. Became a woman so you got  rid of the boy and found a man.
Scripted sculptures with a crown of a queen, one in a million with seductive dreams.
you're an endless sunshine
The one darkness cant
have control of

all the roses win
the lavender gets no way in
You are not perfect

Just real

Great guru jestoni
One day, you're going to meet a person
That you'll love the most
A love that's way dominant that your pride

Just like i did

For you
Ripping and tearing
The heart strings cry
Feeling it's soul
Cast aside

Agony grips tight
As darkness closes in
The light that was once there
Now fades to black

Fear takes hold
As the soul begins to fade
Am I dying?
Or am I just going numb

I wish I knew the answer
Of this simple question
Was it all for nothing
Or will you come back
Breakup with you just for him.
Get back with him
just for him.
I’ll make myself do dumb ****
just for him.
But, she’s the only one I want.
I don’t wanna do any of that.
i’m gonna develop bulimia and anorexia again because i don’t know what to do, too many problems, projects, people; i’ll land myself in the hospital soon enough and gladly let father death take me.

I always overthink
Leaving permanent ink
One thought
Next another
Each and every other
The constant annoying utter
i wonder if you like
video games
or is breaking my heart
the only game you like to play?
she is a happy ending,
not everyone can wait for.
Diksha Prashar
Her innocence is broken

Her trust is ruined

She still smile

Making it appear blissful
sprout, with tears
look up, clear
it always rains
you always love me

opening doors
so alive
but so hurt and

i am

it is
in my head

with cold ink

Why is it hard to live the day
without saying "I love you"?
Sometimes I just wonder why...

I'm back!
So sorry everyone, the last few weeks have been... a strain on me.
I am still doing my media course and all, but mentally and emotionally,
I was slipping down into a dark place. My sleeping patterns have been messed up, my nerves have been completely out of control, my self-doubt, anxiety and depression drained me so much that I found it really hard to write, so I needed time to gather myself. It was so hard for me to pick up a pen. To do anything. My smiles were hollow and I just felt so lost.

I just wanted to apologise, I didn't mean to worry anyone. I'm truly touched by the out-pour of support for me. I got so many messages asking if I was alright. I can't express how much that warmed my heart. I'm so used to people being angry at me for my silence that it usually scares me to come back. By nature, with everything I've experienced, it's made me more and more of an isolationist. To all of those people, truly, thank you so so much for staying and just being kind to me...
Really. Thank you T-T
And thank you to all my followers, old and new.
245 followers... I can't even... T-T
I'm sorry if I sound like a broken record but thank you.
I'm back now, and I'm feeling better.
It's easier to hold my pen so I will resume spilling my ink.

I'll continue the Masked Bard on Thursday, I'm free the whole day.
I have no idea of my schedule the coming week.
Again, I appreciate everyone one of you.
Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts.
Thank you for staying with someone like me.
With much love,
Lyn ***

I'm told I'm talented, beautiful, amazing, smart.

Told I'm a goddess, way ahead of others, easy to talk to.

But all that doesn't matter, because I'm also told I'm a *****.

of everything
you are
and lost
of everything
you ever dreamed
of every shred
of what had seemed
that was cut
from another cloth
and lost its colors
in the wash
that sticks itself
with needles and pins
and anguish cries
of might have beens
the beautiful angel
and evil twin
residing in
the same skin
do not ever ask permission to start a revolution
I'm not staying,
it's my blame.
I'll leave the innocent;
I'm not the same.
I've got blood on my hands.
Pressure to understand.
You're right.
You've always been.
I tend to forget.
I won't bother you,
still my existence bothers me.
My mind smothers me.
The nights scare me;
comfort is scarce.
The dark makes things worse,
and this silence hurts.
It can be so loud,
the noise of nothing.
The sounds of your thoughts,
utterly isolated.
I love y'all;
but I don't love me.
I can't live up to what you all think of me-
all feedback is welcome and appreciated!
when a heart broken
pours out all
her feelings and
translates them onto
words. something
beautiful gets created.
appreciated by many but
never the one
she's always written her
heart out for.
I don't care enough about me
Because they don't care at all about me
Because I laugh too much when it hurts
And I cry too much when it doesn't
But they don't see it
Maybe because they don't want to see it
Because I'm too much to handle
Because they think I'm crazy
Just because.
Such a phenomenon- stars.
Falling- falling out of the sky a once in a life time event occurs only,
Once and I stare-
What more to to when face to face with the tragic demise of your own fate to just stand and stand hopeless
Quite poetic ain’t it?
So when watching this star fall-
Watch the dreams of children perish in space-
You and I and they- all know
So stare and stare hard
For we die once the view fades
And the curtains close
Fade to black-
                                                The End.
Grey skies , leafless trees
A moment of quietness
Remembering Spring

Loving Nature As Always x
I smile at you to not worry you
Disguised in the happy mask
To hide my pain in the grin
But a smile, it doesn't hurt
I know you have problems
You struggle in life
But life is too short
And smile looks good on you
Sometimes the best thing is
Not think
No wonder
Not act
Just smile
Do you ever think
of a poem
that's amazing

and you're sure you'll remember
to write it down

but you won't
This is kind of my mood right now.

Kobe Bryant is with us no more.
The good do die young sometimes, that's for sure.
He was a basketball hero in LA.
He always played the game hard, that was his way.
An NBA legend he will forever be.
Always an inspiration to people like you and me.
salted wounds
stay open

blood seeps
in your mind

as a heart
cries out its pain.
