Tell me another
Love like simple infection
Tempted with tales of happiness
And told like stories of deception
I have met someone new
And answer to the unsolved equation
Do they make me feel loved?
Deceived, I love like the abandoned one
Alex Teng
So tell me where shall I go ?
To the left,
Where nothing's right ?
Or to the right,
Where nothing's left?
So early,
earlier than the bird

worms have to live too.

At the last stop, some
people popped on
some popped off,

I'm here for the duration
revisiting and reviewing
every station along the way.

It pays to like some days
and Thursday's no different
liking doesn't pay too well.
Know loving me would be wrong
isn't it strange,
that the most
things in this world
are not what we do not understand,
but the things that we do?
"I hear a song like lullaby
a flick that slips a butterfly
dust and small branches in her hair
sorrowful dream of Autumn Fae"
Katherine KSB
A poem for a painting
I’m sacred.
I’m scared of breathing.
For that’s the greatest crime.
And it kills.
Phasma de Oceanus
Tear into these sweet
Autumn memories;
Break the girl silent,
Bind fall tightly at the wrists,
Restraint or protection?

The shrouded but
Shining collapse,
Rhythmic and raging,
A heavenly surrender
From a sinful woman.
Just in time for winter.
Kayla Chappell
You may not get him
But at least you get you

Love yourself
Each and every bit

It doesn't matter
What he thinks

You are worth it
You deserve the love
That you give.

So am I loyal

for still loving you
Luis A Estable
Ah, your action, lady,
Causing the rise of my rod.

You have not touched me,
But your eyes are the culprit.
A Simillacrum
Lose a tire? Tires,
they come and go.
Do you have a grip?

The wheel works, but,
what's the point
if the blue sparks fly?

Some words stuck
well inside this
sternum of mine
just need be said.

What's the point of
you and I, then?
Are we always safe?

What's the point of
this fear of life
when I'll soon be
nothing more than dead?

Hold your eyes, then,
til the heart arrives.
Sparks cannot fill
me up inside with dread.
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

when will i get out of this stupid hospital?

soon they said.
baby's breath, tulips, disorientation,
swinging to saxophonists in french yards
and for this I cried when waking
because you were then a fool's gold,
a vinyl alyssum, a grafted painting
and yet I see you there still
on tonic winter midnights
lurking in the garden of tuileries.
I have many dreams
They’re only dreams .. and some are only daydreamt
Gabriel Bonney
I’m not your Savior
Although I can mistake myself to be
I’m just trying to pave in the way of, the Lord
Just a player in this game He wins in
Am I to, march in, this parade
Is it my duty, to pervade
To march in the dark, to bring sight to the light
Logan Robertson
Sally's oven is on highest heat
Shaken and baking the meat, a treat
All the trimmings set forth
Her bird's a rising north
The game ****'s glow knocked her off her feet

Logan Robertson

I know you love me
I feel it
As you sway beneath me
Every word,
Every touch
Attempted to break these walls
At first it was bliss
What once felt fun,
Now feels foreign
I don’t want to be here
I can’t be here
I’m sorry
im still alive
sorry to disappoint
Cup Noodles
but i guess you can't really force chemistry
but for whatever reason
my heart just doesn't give a ****
Erin Reed
a fool
i am
  to convince myself
  that the words that flowed
  like the sound of a perfect melody
  from your lips,
  were the words
  of an honest man.
What if
You have been fighting
A losing battle
All along
What if
The silence
Within you
Is only
The calm
Before the strom
It is going to be a fight
You just cannot

my biggest fear.
Sofia Hinojosa
The brain becomes silent when the heart speaks.
i wish you weren’t with her
i wish you wanted me
i wish you’d see that she’s not right
i wish you’d see what we could be

i wish you’d hold my hand
and cherish me instead
but i need to accept you’re not mine
get it through my foolish head
classic “you belong with me” scenario
I’m scared as f*ck
to want you.

But here
I am,

Still wanting you
I won’t lie.
Once those eyes met mine,
I imagined.
When I watched you run your hands through your hair multiple times,
I daydreamed.
But when I saw that genuine smile and laugh you gave once I made you laugh,
I fell.
rain spattered
pavements teeming;
one thousand prismatic shades of meaning

graffiti-laden puddles splish, splosh, splash;
as midnight turns
to blue, and
dawn to

‘I walked up, and I walked down, and I walked straight into a delicately dying sky, and finally the sequence of observed and observant things brought me, at my usual eating time, to a street so distant from my usual eating place that I decided to try a restaurant which stood on the fringe of the town. Night had fallen without sound or ceremony when I came out again.’

BJ Donovan
People are kind.
Blame it on me.
I lost you long ago
but you still haunt me.
Wander beyond sanity
and flights of fancy and
see what climbs up my
spine and whispers
"Life is empty promise".
I'm out of my mind. Stay.
Buried Words
I want to look as empty as I feel
She made her crown out of thorns and broken things and built a castle in her ruins
and became a forgiving queen.
at this point,
i can't even tell
if it helps anymore
it's just a part of me
ingrained as deeply
as a love of stars
or running
until i can't breathe
just to drown out
the noise in my head
i have to wonder
will these scars
ever help?
i still feel like **** no matter what
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.

"keep your eyes closed love. sometimes all you have to listen is to what the sound of the waves tells you to do"

When I was much younger, beaches were my second favorite places. I still love watching waves as they go by, crashing against each other and the whole process repeating all over again.

a thousand i miss yous linger
in the sky, stubborn clouds that they
are. but i am not tall enough,
nor can i reach high enough to
bring them down and spill them upon
the floor for you. so they remain
there, unspoken, unrained, unloved.
Moon Cherry
I don’t need love in my life,
If i can’t loving you
No, I don’t need this heart,
If it won’t even beat for you
And I don’t really want to feel,
If i can’t feel you.
Love really takes everything
and give back everything.
Faizel Farzee
Love is a drug, i wish to overdose on yours
                No Rehab Required
Love is the essence i breathe, only if it's yours
you are my one and only
your gaze make me feel like a super star.
We flow in circuits
Circling each other
You ignite a flow
Inside of me which
Always finds it's way
Back into you

I search out your eyes
When I'm wet in tears
And you never turn
Me down, you light up
With a smile so bright
I feel myself

No matter how long
I've left you hanging
You greet me like I
Just got back from Spain
And you want to hear
All the juicy

We speak in riddles
So much so that they
Don't believe you are
Really real or that
You tell me secrets
No one else knows
But us

And buried in all
Our tricks is a ***
Of honey so sweet
I switch from Eeyore
To Winnie in a
Holy instant
I sink

In the inter-webs
For now, I am yours
Virtually yes
If not in flesh yet
But the future holds
New layers of

For us and for all
Who lay apart from
Their loves, the distance
Isn't real in the same
Way it used to be
For us anymore
My love

No amount of space
Or time can unlight
Our flames, we're dancing
In ways we won't be
Forgotten soon or
Maybe ever
I dream

That we discover
New technologies
Bridging the gap from
Me to you and back
Again one day I'll
Rest your bones on
My flesh
Love poem
Ariana Bagley
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.
I know you looked at me,
But I don't think you saw me.
A "poem" every day.
