The scream is silent
But everyone hears it
The scream is sufficating
But everyone ignores it
The scream is building
But no one cares
The scream has gone
But the screamer is too

He's just a  boy
I'm just a girl
He's in love
I'm in love
But I'm in love with him
And he's in love with someone else
he happily in a relationship
and i fantasize a relationship between us

The wisdom of age is caged
By rage
By pages staged in cultural serfdom.

The youthful burnt by truth's
Supernova
Of time and its rotten fruit,
wisdom, hah

So you find me between
The rage and the explosion.
Gritting teeth beneath pain's expressed grief.

Valleys, rivers, mountains wide
To great upends and depths of trenches which divide

No cloud nor star
Nor sun nor gleam
Or misting fog at last be seen

Neath rock and root
Or oceans wide
Or frozen tundra stretched outside

No warming feeling felt
Abides
Twixt valley, river, and mountainous wide

No distance compares or parts of mind
When you are standing here beside
When You Are By My Side

The mountains collapse at a slower rate
I see you in music
notes are steps
closer to you
press play and
we never pause
"music" and "you" can be read as the first words of the next line

I've seen you from the birth of time,
Before stars now stuck in oblivion.

I've seen it all yet not enough.

And I miss it all,
what has come and what will be.

After years of broken dreams
There was a smile that started to fade
I’m telling you the answer isn't the blade
Blocking my ears from the painful screams
Life has become a different color shade
We can get through it as a team

WILLIAM WORTHLESS
i saw her in my dreams next day she was there
walking down the street long blonde flowing hair
then she came towards me stopped and said hello
i could feel the love as it began to flow.

i told her of my dream she had the same dream too
said the one she saw. looked a lot like you
then she looked at me with her eyes so blue
i fell in love with her i could tell she knew

the girl in my dreams she had come to me
one i always dream of that i always see
sitting my side with the same dream too
dreams we both had now were really true

we walked along together walking side by side
my hand in hers began to gently slide
then we carried on walked a little more
i had such a feeling i never had before.

then we held each other i squeezed and held her tight
holding the girl i dream of each and every night
now she was there with her arms round me
the girl in my dreams that i always see

the girl in my dreams she had come to me
one i always dream of that i always see
sitting my side with the same dream too
sharing love together with a dream come true

It desperately pleads with me as I turn it between my fingers.  
It knows what I'm contemplating; dreading its own death, a slow sinking to the murky depths.  
It's time to follow through;  
A quick flick of the wrist and the deed is done.  
I imagine my flat stone screaming in terror as it skips across the lake's tranquil surface.  
My imagination is twisted.

I turned my wishes to verses
And sang it to the universe
And to my surprise, my desires
began to appear before my eyes
She must have enjoyed my tune,
My words & reality, she attuned.

Speak your wishes into existence,
Your tongue is a powerful tool
Whichever you say: "I can" or "I can't",
Ultimately, that becomes your truth.
Consciously pick the words that
proceed from your mouth.
Choose gracious, lifting, life-giving words.

Little girl, golden child,
heart of gold, but covered in ice.
Tilted crown, tear-stained cheeks,
dancing flames in her earth-brown eyes.
Angel child, with the devil's smile,
spread your paper wings, lift your poisoned wine.
Diamond lips and midnight hair,
do not scream, when you roll the dice.
Knife in her heart, claws on her back,
her blood was sunsets on her grey canvas skin.
There is no good and no evil, she says,
no black and white.
There are only angels and demons,
and a fine grey line in between.

It screams so vibrantly when convenient.

Then sends a signal through silk smiles that slowly simmer on tightly drawn lips.

The lips explode in an angry over boil of sour soot engrossed sin.

Heated thoughts point their haughty fingers in heatwave directions
striking the nearest and seemingly weakest iced block- melting it down to a puddle of pitiful pain.

Defenseless the droplets condense quickly in self-defense, running in every direction.

Slowly
   sliding
     downward
       into
         their
           death ...

Without feeling
You & I
Are just zombies

Therefore
Feeling is human

From happiness to pain
From sunshine to rain

Feeling is human
Blood, sweat & tears
Bears the sweetest fruits

Keep fighting. ❤️
Feelings, learn them and accept them but let them take you down the wrong route.

The best part of you  is You.


Your ability to take sadness and pain

and mold it into growth and beauty

To create peace and desolation in the embrace of the life storm

To sit in emptiness when there is chaos all around me.

I am the night thief... stealing hours from the normal day to

to exist in silence and think.

My diary has
all my secrets
even my best friend
doesn't know them.

My diary reflects me
It has all my
emotions and feelings
which no one observed yet.

My diary was torn once
pages were burnt too
memories were destroyed also
but not from the heart.

My diary was given a new life now
started fresh
with sweet memories
and only sweet memories.

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!

Show me a sign
Help me pause our merciless times
above myself and below you
Lies Orion’s Belt
In a Brownian motion,
The  stars shall set flight
But as for now
it is tragically silent
My emotion are threatening violence
Violence and conflict is what I feel
Unable to make a stable deal
a deal that appeals The judge of life
For I am my own soul’s reverse and forward drive.

True friends can see the hurt behind your eyes.
They can tell when you're not okay even when you say you are.
True friends will know when you need them.
They will give you a hug when you need it.
True friends will stick with you through tough times.
They will not give up on you.
True friends will protect you.
They will protect you even from yourself if they can.
True Friends can be hard to come by.
I have true friends, I love them so much. They have stuck with my when I was at my worst. I am so blessed to have them as friends. This is for Mjolnir, Sapphire, Peanut Butter, Tyto, FreeBird, Mismagius, Eclipse,  Daisy, and Mrs. G.

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 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 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.

Now read from bottom to top.
