...the meadow and the puddle
you wouldn't come out of

wild and simple joy

invisable to eyes, now...

I wander the meadow grass

the fields where the flowers glow
in early morning

the fields you
only dream of
where your soul is always free...

and you come running

spectral through the mist

I walk lonely fields
Jason James
By three.

Before and after Darlene
And if it's fate
The pearly gates await.
I pray,
Not too late.
Because it’s you
I am smiling from head to toe,
Because it’s you
I feel free, everywhere that I go.

Because it’s you
I feel can do everything/anything,
Because it’s you
I just want to sing.

Because it’s you
Because it’s about you

Because it’s you
I have found some new inner strength
Because it’s you
I feel like I can go that extra length.

Because it’s you
My skips when you walk past
Because it’s you
When I’m with you, the time goes past so fast.

Because it’s you
Because it’s of you

Because it’s you
I love everything about you
Because it’s you
I really enjoy spending this time, together, with you too.

Because it’s you
My heart feels, very light
Because it’s you
Each day now, has been bright.

Because it’s you
Because it’s from you

Because it’s you
I want to see you more, and more each time
Because it’s you
Everyday feels fine.

Because it’s you
I feel like dancing in the rain
Because it’s you
I don’t mind that each day is the same.

Because it’s you
Because it’s with you

Because it’s you
You help inspire me
Because it’s you
I feel a different kind of free.

Because it’s you
I want to strive to be/become better
Because it’s you
I hope that you will accept this letter.

Because it’s you
I enjoy my time with you
Because it is, from you
There is, nothing more, that I ask of you.

Because it’s you
Just because it’s you.
For all that you have done, and still are to/will do,
In this, I just wanted to say, thank you
With all my love,
Because it’s you.

Collection "Different times"
Hakikur Rahman
The stream silently laughs,
O floating cloud,
You are stunned
You have become stale.

Where did the hectic bustle go
Where the noise,
Sitting in the far corner of the sky
What a feeling you have!

Meanwhile, look
Towards me,
Everyone is drowning and swimming
With pleasing minds.

Cluster of clouds said,
“Hey water stream-
Without me,
You are such a wretch”.
ruffling through the white bag
i found exactly what I wanted

the chips…

my sadness craved it
Secretly achieving my dreams
How I Invision myself since I was sixteen
Always imagined I would be a queen
But that's not what reality had in store for me
Working as a trainee
Nine to five daily
Never needing anyone to save me
Lunch break at three
Nothing in this world is free
That I can guarantee
Hope you enjoy reading this piece ☆

I'm sorry I can't give the
you feel

I'm sorry I can't feel the
you give

I'm sorry for everything
I've done

More so for what
I never did
Her eyes were fiery
While her lips peeled away
Her sun was setting
But her colors never fade
When she bites she is bitter
But when she smiles she is sweet
Like a nectarine emblem
She’s the fruit of life’s tree.
David Lessard
I used to read your poems
but lately you don't write
you're silent and aloof
you know that isn't right.
You can't close a door once opened
you can't abolish all your dreams
you're a poet of the heart
mustn't fall apart at the seams.
Say what you can in words
they speak the message true
spoken from the heart
the poems will see you through.
A hermit's not your style
a recluse, you are not
never give up writing
of things that you've been taught.
I used to read your poems
I'd read them once again
if you would send them out
(this one's from a poet friend)
A dry leaf fall..
The wind blew it away...
So far, it flies..
Carrying wounds that she holds...
Leaving the twig in silence...
May God always protect all human on earth
He asked her what it's like living with anxiety.

She smiled sadly, "It's a never-ending pulse-race. Like knowing you don't want to jump off a cliff but not being able to talk yourself down from it.

Your fears take on a nebulous, unidentifiable form that tightens around your throat and incapacitates you.

There is no calm. No peace. Only the edge of a very strained thread."
Brain, brain go away
Don't want to listen one more day
Already lonely and afraid
Feel insecure and full of shame

Brain, brain don't act this way
You're always angry; Filled with hate
You know we're joined; Can't separate
Yourself your punching in the face

Brain, brain what can I say
To make it so you see things straight
Don't know how much more I can take
Of constant warring and debate

Brain, brain it's getting late
This journey's not some endless race
Life's flying by and at this pace
Forget a win; Not gonna place

Brain, brain let's medicate
I'll feed you drugs and we'll sedate
The only way to mitigate
Discrepancies we generate

Brain, brain we sadly waste
This outcome feels like it was fate
But never was there a sealed date
Fulfilling what we self-create

Brain, brain so much we faced
Success so close could almost taste
Instead our tail we always chased
We'll die alone sad and disgraced

and I
had No

and Oh Skies!
and Oh Trees!

and I
had No

and the Universe
was rocking
as if it Was
And with a sincere smile,
she looked to the stars
knowing the future was worthwhile,
even, with a thousand scars.
I woke up from a nightmare
I could not stand to keep
to myself

you were stretched across the couch
coffee going cold on the table
a half finished cigarette
still burning

you wrapped me up
in kind words that
I could not bare
to hear

whispered into my ear
"one day we will go wandering
and this tiny house will overspill
with dreams'

you are not your memories, darling
you are not the bad things
that have been done to you
you are a fierce flame
that warms my heart

forget them, my love
they are nothing
and you, and you
are everything
Francie Lynch
A once dear friend
And I met up;
Twenty years since we spoke,
And neither one could talk.
We left each other's company
On terms of disagreement.
The ice was thick;
The air was clouded;
We stood beneath the shade.
The mountain didn't fall;
The earth didn't swallow;
The roof stayed on.
Nothing cracked our uncertainty.
Then we misquoted some old
Misunderstood memories
Of why we went our ways.
We felt the same.
Richard Reid
You find yourself coasting through a dark ocean and nothing but still air.
There’s no enjoyment in what you feel.
Everything just filters through.
Anger isn’t anger.
Happiness isn’t happiness.
As if you are numb, even being numb doesn’t feel like a feeling at all.
I wonder if I really am kind hearted.
Most people think it’s true,
But maybe I’m just afraid of being mean-
Maybe I’m afraid of being you.
not enough time
god it's going by too fast
can't count the days
count the weeks instead.

years pass as you complacently count
too busy worrying about wasted time
to do anything
worth living for
Alvin Agnani
Is it abnormal to love as much as I do?

Sometimes people find me odd.

I'm okay with that.

All I want is to spread joy and I've realised it gets easier every time you do it.
That goes for just about anything.

Is it abnormal to love as much as I do?
But this is the me I want to be.

Kindest regards
You will smile.
You will cry.
Part of life I'm afraid.
Just hold on and know that YOU are LOVED.
no one loves me
but they claim they care
if they really did wouldn't they see

i am falling apart
fragile to the touch
yet they keep on pushing me

closer to the edge
and they think i can take more
so they push farther till i'm at the brink

it's like they know i can't swim
but they are going overboard
and they'll be suprised when i sink
Love doesn't require any explanation to love
They said,
"The most beautiful art is
looking into someone's eyes
when they talk about the
things they love.
And I said,
"Or looking at someone you love.
Or maybe, just maybe,
by looking at the mirror
is the most beautiful art
anyone should appreciate."
Appreciation post for myself; for you and for everyone as well. You deserve more than the world has to offer.
I can’t blame you for loving her,
She’s everything I want to be
The pain
It comes and goes
One day it’s there
The next it’s gone

One day you’re good
The next you’re not
You can’t press “mute”
Do what you want
you hung the stars,
yet caused my scars -

when did you go
from silver to sold

why have you gone
in a hurry?

She said "I'm falling in love."

I said "I'm falling apart."
What's the difference?

Money may not
grow on trees
But far too many people
are willing to go
out on a limb for it
your eyes are full of galaxies and i just want to sit and stargaze until i discover every last one.

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.
lights flicker
in the distance
far far below

I’m here
looking down on it all
wrapped in a blanket
a book lies next to me
pages flipping themselves
in the cool summer breeze
inside are the sounds of life
outside are the sounds
of the questioning
the air is filled
with random notes
fluttering around me
like guardian angels
I know why they’re here

sat down
next to me
to keep me company
we look at the flickering lights
in the distance
he tells me
you’d do fine down there
if you wanted to
be a light
surrounded by light
but then he shifts his gaze
the moonlight
dancing through his being
but you’d do great
up there
be a light
where no one has dared to be
and with that
he left
Dear self,
In losing you

Days seem blurry
Nights seem scary

Heart grows weary
Eyes turn teary

I lost the merry
I lost the power to write my story
your name is
forbidden in
my mouth
or in my heart
because when
i think about

i'll cry a little more,
hurt a little stronger
love a little softer
because you no longer
make me feel sober

i'm drunk on the
memory of you
if only i could chase you with pizza but shots don't work like that
The poet lives two lives.
One on the outside,
And one in their mind.

When you look in their eyes
You could see an abyss.

If you looked long enough
You could sink into it.

But most people don’t see it.

Take the time to read the words, though,
And you would know for sure.

The poet lives in two different worlds.
A little escape from the madness.
Or maybe, into.
Chloe Pepper
I trace my mind for things to say
Of how you left my heart in disarray
I think of all the times we had
Trying to find the ones that were not so bad
Some days I wonder if we would’ve made it
Maybe if we didn’t always fake it
The love we had was so raw, so true
And all I can think about are the memories of you
As days go by I slowly see
Everything I wish we could be
My heart is hurting as I try
To slowly say my final goodbye
we do not write poetry
we write mirrors
which are held up
to curious faces
who read
looking for their
own reflections
