This is why I don't
share my opinions-
They won't listen.
They think I'm strange.
They think that they're always right.
They make me feel guilty
even though I didn't do anything wrong.
But still,
I won't stop.
There is a Monopoly for love in these times
In the name of love will you suffer or will you smile ?
I think part of me has excepted that I will be alone for awhile
And it's a heavy feeling
An isolating one, but I know somewhere deep down inside my damaged heart that I deserve happiness and I'm not finding it here
I don't feel love anymore
Just distance
Resistance like a rubber band
You pull it back far enough and it just hurts you in the end
I'm no genius.
But i know, that loving yhu.
Wasn't supposed to hurt.
I like to believe, we meet people for a reason,
Wether God sent me to change your life, or
Or God sent you to change mine.
the darkness makes it more sentimental
the warm light of a lamppost
It is a mystery
how it provides me feelings
as the lamppost shimmer through,
I’m here
looking at love
a tragic magical tale
people adore it
people despise it
I am dissolving through it
It came through pierced veils
Dark night
Broken heart
Pray to God
And now I feel alone

When we should feel connected
watch them in their slumber
Innocentia Hlophe
I want you to be kind to me
Be kind to me.
Infamous one
Someday are bad
Hide behind a smile
Push through to make it
Treat people right
A bad mood for the moment
Shouldn't ruin others day
For once loyal to the right people
Make it feel welcoming a place to go
Somewhere to be guilt free
Use to being rejected but forgiving
Not let others influence behavior
Be honest and genuine a lost trait

I gave them fickle fables
Far from forging truths
Fair young women
With facades cast over
Their fear-filled eyes
As they realize
There is no fairy tail
For fabricated dreams
No Prince Charming
Will fall for them
It is the princess fallout
That happens to
All folly young women

Let that smile return
Never let it fade
Whatever's occured
I know you'll feel better

breathing cosmo wordless movement of peace,
'I', content within eternal life shall pass,
'I', happy not knowing  clapping hands in bliss.'

I am boxed in by my own expectations
I am afraid of my own fore shadow
Of things that need to come

I suspect that if I were free of wanting the things I feel compelled to be, which are vast in number, I actually have a decent shot at achieving great things

Can I cast aside the pursuit of false projections of greatness and pursue nothing but the whims and inclinations of my mind. Will that lead me to greatness.

It’s ironic that my plan to conquer the world has crushed me under its weight
Marcella Faye
I feel so foolish
When my eyes see
The truth,
But still, love hearing
The lies that you speak
Like it's comforting words
To listen to
As I sleep,  
Almost feels like
A lullaby with
A wolf bearing out
Its teeth.

just a little more,
I should wait.
just a little more,
I will strive.
just a little more,
I will fight.


just a little more,
I will stop.
just a little more,
I will give up.
just a little more,
I will die.

just a little more,
just a little more.
whatever hardships we face, there is always an end. we just have to go on, just a little more.
My wings were clipped the day I was born
I was put under the pressure of a billion eyes
My dreams ripped my skies torn
My life was built on a faithful lie

The shadows of my imagination
feared the glare of their expectations
My broken bones, My shattered heart
Sang the stories of me being torn apart
I saw the knife
in your hand
I saw the hate
in your eyes
I saw the smile
slowly creep up
as you put the blade in me
I saw the blood
drip down
I am a witness to it all
The fortune teller yelled,
She told me
"There are two breeds of oathbreakers
The liar and the failure."

It is this feeble form,
With deep roots of saphire
Juxtaposed with soft silk
Spines, undermined by magma.
The milk of these bones are
From an unhealthy donar.

Great singers sing
Through happiness and sorrow.
The writers are writing
Whether with joy or woe.
The warrior fights on
For failure or valour.
The great fear not defeat
But the fleeting self
Who flees.
"12 Before a downfall the heart is haughty, but humility comes before honor."
-Proverbs 18:12
Love Shades
Love has different shapes and shades
My love your love is a source of joy
No matter where and why cut blades
Love is only truth there is just no lie

Beauty has to attract with different styles
Heart has to submit on the way to glory
From place and place from miles to miles
To make heart and soul to be totally free

My beloved dawn on me with all your light
I am in darkness with the pain to cherish
Be in me and enlighten me to be just bright
Before I lose my sight of love to just perish

My control became a variable.
My stability became improbable.

together we walk 
to our deaths
in this thing called life 
but somehow we forget 
we are in this thing

i’ve witnessed how his spine grows soft—
what makes his knees sink into the ground.
i am certain that the first time he said he wanted me
was the first time the word “want” felt like a leash around my neck—
you’ve got your hands full.
and on days you flinch
when you hear the word commitment,
they slink out empty.
Trevor Reynolds
I can't have depression because I'm a man.
I'll take care of everything, you know that I can.
It's not about ego or my self esteem.
And I'm not being moody, just what do you mean?
Go to the doctor, visit a shrink.
Whatever would our family and friends start to think?
I'm  just over tired that’s all that it is.
Let's put this behind us and don't tell the kids.
I can’t have depression because I'm a man
Or maybe I'm wrong, and really I can.

By Trevor Reynolds 2019
I wanted to learn

so last night my fourth grade teacher
tore my eyelids off

and sat me near a television screen
that showed my mother dying
over and over
and over again.

I left as a cavity
of a boy,

collapsing at the sound of passing cars

as I searched for a payphone where
I could speak to the static about Gabriel.

(where is he?)

When I look at my brother and father

I beg for my eyes to be caressed until they’re scarred

with every daytime matinee
and curtsy on the train platform

that built me into this mosaic
of a “man”.
deeply personal. would appreciate kind words and condolences. my mother is alive but a part of me has died.
so cool
quite senile
mysteriously gentile
my exterior.

so warm
quite degenerate
mysteriously hazardous
my interior.

my insides lit on fire
my outsides cooled with fire

propane surges through my blood
high octane through my nerves
an engine of a heart
a minefield of a mind

i am my spark plug

i am the trigger
separation lit a fire under my ***
Mackenzie Downs
I’m so sick
of dreaming of you
falling asleep
and you’re back in my life
the mistakes we made
the fights we had
we words we said
all forgiven
I’m back in your arms
my heart swells with happiness
you’re back!
I want to scream
I want to cry
I want to shout giddily
and I’m back!
back where
I’m always longing to be
but then
I awake
and a bucket of ice water
runs down my face
down my back
stealing the breath
from out of my chest
I’m needing a life vest
I need someone to help me
I am not in your arms
we have not forgiven each other
and you are so, so far away
Left Bracket
you know that I love you.

things you don't know is,
I was thinking about you when you called me.
I still remember the last time I saw you
and I remember the day I realized
it was really over

but life goes on, as things do
however, I still find myself
thinking about you

I’ve seen other people,
I’m sure you have too
but still, I really, truly do
myss you
Jenny Umansky
I'm sticking with you
Cause I'm made out of glue
Anything that you might do
I'm gonna do too

Some people go
Into the stratosphere
Soldiers fighting
With the Cong

But with you by my side
I can do anything
When we swing
We hang past right or wrong

I'll do anything for you
Anything you want me too
I'll do anything for you
Oh I'm sticking with you

Oh I'm sticking with you

Oh I'm sticking with you
One of my favourite song lyrics by the velvet underground <3
the scent of incense
hangs heavy in the air
the constant murmer of voices
comes crashing like waves
but your eyes meet mine
and the faces disappear
the voices die,
all that remains
is an unspoken invitation
from my lips
willing yours to kiss mine
and yours happily
meet their request
leaving our love tasting
like oranges
tenderly plucked
from moonlight lips.
I wore black
Event hough
I am still breathing
I am no longer

Shofi Ahmed
Give in love
but never give up!
aren't we all a little hesitant
to allow unexpected love
to enter
Levi Johnson
I just have to look
at you
to feel it.

To know it
I have to look

Like the pages
of a book

Fragments of
information, the pieces
all out of place.


I believe you
beg to be
spotless mind
tell me that you don’t love me anymore
say I’ll try my luck with the other boy who’s gonna give me some more
but don’t make me one of your toys
as if there was no meaning behind our conversations full of joy
Lips that have never been kissed
Hair that's never been brushed back
Cheeks that have never been caressed
Hands that have never been held

Yes, I know I dont need a boy
But it gets kind of lonely
These days I spend my time in wistful dreams
The imperfection
Exists in comparison.

The perfection
Exists in freedom
To be
What you are
As you are.
