I´ve lost the count
of sleepless nights
when dark window
mirrors my face
I no longer recognize
without you
I am nothing
Mister Clown, mister Funny
Mister Always has some money
Why aren’t you joking today
Mister i’m always okay
i’m okay, okay

On my tiptoes like it’s ballet
It’s second best we call that Park Place
and i’m blue, blue, blue
Ya know me well i’m mister cliché
Trade my years for smokes and ashtrays
Time just flew, flew, flew
Here’s some candles, it’s happy birthday
Here’s some camels, TGI Friday
TGI Jesus, TGI Nietzsche
it’s NTK it’s TLA, that’s AKA
It’s subtlety and puppetry,
it’s how you got the best of me
you pull the ground from under me
for me to fall and i just do, do, do

Mister Clown, mister Funny
Mister Always has some money
Why aren’t you joking today
Mister i’m always okay
i’m okay, okay
Punish me again,
Kick me in the heart,
Drive me out into the desert,
Leave me in the dark.

No food, no water
for the emotional cutter.
But hidden in my clothes
Lies a tired thirsty Rose

To leave a trail of petals,
Wait till the dust settles
And follow sandy specks of red
Always back to you.
Buried Words
Memories like glass,
Carving images into my brain.
Tattooing them there,
Never forgetting,
What happened.
My mind is playing them on loop,
Over and over.
Until the day my heart stops.
not even the Eiffel Tower at night
can top
the light in your eyes.

-May Colde
ting is
your           life
thro             ugh
a ne           edle
and         if
you sew
It’s always me and
That one mistake that follows
As if my shadow
Robert Marshall
An angel in heaven gave to you her eyes
just to compliment the beauty that radiates from you.

Your hair like that of the goddess Athena's silky soft
flowing tresses of mystic light outlining your beauty.

Your smile fades the sun till it seems like day has turned
to dusk all gray and quiet.

Your skin like velvet to the touch yet smoother than
the finest satin in it's milky white shine.

Your voice like that of a sirens, reaches into the depths
of my mind and brings calm from chaos.

Such is your beauty that it reaches inside my very soul
and holds it captive and I can do nothing to escape it's grip.

As I gaze deep into your eyes I become yours and
yours alone Trapped in love for all eternity.
Jana Vasiliev
Put my hair up in pastel ribbons, and give me your honey-eyed Eskimo kisses.
Baby girl, I’ll be the kitty who lets you drag her around by the tail, and lick your soft cheeks when you cry.
Make silly demands and watch me roll my eyes, and do everything you’ve ever dreamed of.
I’m a heliotrope and you are the sun, yes.
Your sugar plum lips make me bloom into you. Watch me get drunk on the air you breathe out. I love you, I love you, oh sweetness, I love.
Ankita Gupta
Open the door
Enter the time that lapsed
Draw out the curtains
There is light from the past
Breathe the air
Dance to the tunes slow and fast
Ride the carriages
Travel to the time of chance

i always have
the urge to run.

but what is it like
to be a tree?

to be confident enough
to root yourself
and grow with
wild abandonment,
being unapologetically

i'm still running,
but i wish i knew.
It’s a city from the outside,
Shining on a hill
But from the inside looking out
It’s just another jail
It sometimes feels like the city walls are pressing in, suffocating me, but I can’t leave, at least not yet. Soon, though, I’ll be leaving; soon... I just have to remember to breathe long enough to get there.
Abigail Elizabeth
bitter blue breezes glide across your skin
in an overflowing orbit that always seems to win
listen to the sound of the voice of the wind
a biting chill claws its clever way in

a regal violet sky engulfs the velvet atmosphere
as the strange trees swing in tandem, you feel honored to be here
listen to the voice
the ones within the forest rejoice

misty and soft is this place
enchantment is cast upon your face

the fae wilde invites your spirit in
the grooves in the wood are carved like a mandolin
your heart will feel the stars glisten
a psychedelic morning storm
Luis A Estable
My heart is hurt gone full.
My eyes no more can cry.
My mind no longer can stand
This agony so high.

My Butterfly is gone!
My Flower is no more !
Oh, I am so sore!
I've lost my precious Love!
A man cries out for his life is gone. All is easy language in this.

Man love tears, pain
I'll grow up and be the women you said I never ever could be.
I really hope that when I do
you'll be able to find it in you
to be happy
and proud of me.
Tyler Harper
Star moves in dark sky.
White dragon flies with the night.
Cold, dark; beautiful.
Amy Childers
A picture may be worth a thousand words
But none of them adore you.

Wicked and malicious
Dark and fiendish
Knavish and swarthy

Luckily words are empty
And actions are temporary
But a shredded image can go a long way.
Deniz Eilmore
In my mind
I create worlds
Of endless possibilities
Ones in which I do not pretend
I can be who I am
Richard Matheson
But how far have we come?
The miles we've traversed are benevolent ice:
we fly,
into each other.

Love destroys.
That is only to say,
"Love makes room."
i do not believe in god
but i do believe in poetry
and for me
maybe poetry is prayer
and the universe
is an unwavering ear
in the shape of a god

⚠️trigger warning

I wanna put a bullet to my head
My fingertips loosing grip to my life like thread
I feel so down yet I can't help but bottle it up
When I'm sad nothing changes I just wanna cut
I can't seem to escape the feeling of being a disgrace
But it's not my fault, my demons ar hard to face
It's safe to say I have seretonin deficiency
My happiness is clearly in the history
I just wanna die
I miss the way I used to feel
When I didn't hate myself after every meal
Everyone wants me alive
Why won't you just let me die?
⚠️trigger warning
We don't talk much but I need your help.
I am in your garden and so is he:
My apple.
These two years I have sat here,
Waiting for my apple to fall that I may take a bite, feel his sweet company beside me.
Yet the apple is distant.
He doesn't see me

So I drink this poison instead.
I sit here anticipating his company but he never shows

Sabi nila,kapag nahanap mo na daw ang tunay na pag-ibig ay nahanap mo na rin ang iyong langit dito sa lupa. Kaya't naniniwala akong langit din ang maghahatid sa'yo patungo sa akin. Pero naiinip na akong maghintay,at nanghihinayang sa bawat sandaling lumilipas na hindi ko man lang magawang hawakan ang iyong mga kamay sa mga panahong kailangan mo ng karamay.Na hindi ko man lang magawang damayan ka kung dumadanas ka ng lumbay.Alam kong katulad ko,pakiramdam mo minsan ay binitawan ka na din ng mundo.Kaya't patawarin mo ako kung sa mga pagkakataong nararanasan mo yan ay wala ako d'yan para ikaw ay aking ma-salo. Kung totoong ang pag-ibig at ang langit ay may malalim na kaugnayan sa isa-t isa,malakas ang kutob ko na tayo din ay iginuhit na katulad nila. Minsan na din akong nagtanong,saang sulok ng langit ka kaya naroroon? Malapit ka kaya sa araw? O marahil nasa tabi ka lang ng buwan,na sa tuwing sasapit ang dilim ako ay binabantayan.Kaya pala kahit saan ako magpunta ako'y lagi niyang sinusundan. Pero maaari din na ika'y kapiling ng mga bituin na kay daming nais mag angkin. Kay palad kong pagdating ng araw ikaw ay napa sa-akin. Kaya habang wala ka pa,ako muna ay magiging kaisa ng mga mabubuting kawal ng ating bayan. Makikidigma kung kinakailangan,ipaglalaban kung ano ang makat'wiran. Upang sa iyong pagdating ay malaya nating tatamasahin ang payapang buhay. Kaya habang wala ka pa ako'y taos puso kung manalangin sa ating may likha. Na paghariin niya nawa ang kabutihan sa aking puso bilang isang tao at higit sa lahat ay bilang kanyang anak , upang sa sandaling tayo'y pagtagpuin ako rin sa iyo ay magiging isang mabuting kabiyak. Hindi pa man tayo nagtatagpo,nais kung malaman mo na laman kang palagi ng aking panalangin. At habambuhay kong itatangi ang iyong pag-ibig na siyang dahilan kung bakit maka ilang ulit kong nanaising mabuhay. Nais kong ipagsigawan sa mundo na iniibig kitang wagas,ngunit mas mamatamisin kong hintayin ka at kapag naglapat na ang ating mga dibdib,ibubulong ko sa'yo na ikaw ang aking daigdig. Maghihintay lang ako,habang wala ka pa.

Pag-ibig sa tatlong salita (IKAW,BAYAN at DIYOS)
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.
talking to you
fits like a glove
you're not the one
I'm dreaming of
falling in love
with love is like
searching frantically
for your iPhone
in 1847.
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.

Rain on me,
For I have been longing to be free.
Lost in my world, needlessly.

Rain on me,
For I am too tired and I need sleep.
This world is a herd and I cannot be its sheep.

Rain on me,
And show me the way.
This place is empty and I cannot stay.

Rain on me,
It has been too long.
I am sick and tired of pretending to be strong.

Rain on me,
I want to see the lightning pierce the sky.
As the thunder roars and the clouds fly.

Rain on me,
Let the winds take my mind to another land.
No one needs to know and no one needs to understand.

I came up with this while I was watching the rain from my window, a few days back. I hope you like it.

“Partners “

     Until the stars fall
         Hear the wind call us
           See it written in the sky

       It seems our lives have been
        Since the very day we
     To make our journey through this life

Anywhere it will lead us
      Every phase we go through
     I’ll be here beside you
Until we reach our journey’s end

Like stars within a constellation
Until we reach our destination
Until our last card has been played

Anywhere it will lead us
      Every phase we go through
     I’ll be here beside you
Until we reach our journey’s end

    Before our paths crossed we were
   Our love has been alive forever
    And will be ‘til the end of time
    And will be ‘til the end of time

That pure innocent smile,
Your childish face and that side profile,
Your silky hair and that perfect hairstyle,
Would never forget you.
**** I miss you!

The touch of your smooth skin,
That beautiful little chin,
Your blushy cheeks and that grin,
Still I adore you.
**** I miss you!

Those big dope eyes,
That ****** nose ,
Those size 7 feet and pinky toes.
Your medications and Ayurvedic dose.
Wish again to feel you.
**** I miss you!

Baby I still remember,
that freezy December,
The day we fell off the scooter,
Your ****** buggy computer.
Our first date and the perfect kiss,
That raining night we spent in balcony
When you burnt the toast and macrony,
That birthday card you made me,
Helping in projects and assignments,
You taking care when I got sick,
I recall all those perfect memories of you,
still there's a place for you,
**** I miss you!

I wish you would have waited,
I would have come back,
But I can't blame you,
It was me who needed the space,
The fault is my OWN!
So I am the one left ALONE! :'(
I miss every cell of your body,
every second spent with you,
every moment in your arms,
Every bite I had with you.
I ******* miss the whole of YOU.
Love is fake
Romance is a lie
I will be alone
Until the day I die
I'm always going to be alone.
"How are you?"

"I’m fine."

fine, fine like mother’s china,
breaking with a touch.
fine, fine like a fair maiden,
for whom only tragedy awaits.
fine, like the thread of life,
flimsy and anxious.
I’m fine,
Alessandra Faye
You've got the moon,
Scintillate in your eyes.

You've got the sun,
Shining with your smile

You've got the world,
Embracing the depths of your soul

You've got the galaxy,
Uttering celestial words

You've got the universe,
Since you've held me tight.

You've got the heaven,
And then you fell for me, told me that it felt like home.
Each day I long to see your face
Like flowers chase the Sun’s embrace
The time flies fast, it's quickly past
I wish that I could slow the pace
Callie Richter
i wanna cut
my chest open
just to make sure
my hearts still
beating inside
I feel like my mind is racing.
Seeing all of these nostalgic faces.
Wondering why people hurt each other,
or leave one another.
Just can hug this pillow tight.
As what I care about goes out of sight.
Can we talk?
Sure, whatever.
I’m self conscious.
I’ve stopped eating.
Are you listening?
I’m sad.
I’m depressed.
I want to die.
I am going to **** my self!
What!? Why!?
People don’t pay attention until you flat out say it. Nobody sees the small stuff until it actually happens. This is in no shape a way to make you feel bad just pay attention to the people around you, even if they say they don’t want to be around you, unless they’re angry. That’s all and if you need someone to talk to, I’m always here for advice and ect.
Freddie Ruiz
He tried to tell her she was perfect,
but she couldn’t believe him.
She wanted to, he could tell she really did,
but she just couldn’t believe him,
‘cause what she saw in the mirror reflected a much different story
than the one he was telling her.

My heart whispers
in a tune,
which only
you can

Art has ways to explore
You may be in dire need
But when it comes to art
You explore
In foreign cities
Sitting under yellow city lamps
Losing your way in the metro
But when it comes to art
You explore
Tokyo is such a place
I wish to visit
When I'm out of money
I explore
When it comes to sketching
Your grace
Your face
Your exotic charms
Make me clap my hands
And change my pallette
My love for the city has never changed
When the people degrade for their ruin
Get better by the years
The years change
Tokyo I need to dream about you
And explore
Hello people
How's the sunshine
In this cold weather
Love has traces of a past I can't recollect
But when it comes to loving women and friends
It's the same
Just like Tokyo dreaming
When one is painting one does not think
Messy Thoughts
most people see me as
a happy person because
i laugh easily,
i smile a lot,
i joke a lot.

but deep down
in my heart,
i am fragile,
i can get hurt easily,
but i choose to not
show it to the world.

instead of being sad,
i choose to laugh to cover it.
maybe you can call me
"the queen of the mask"

by this,
you can tell
that most of the time
when I'm laughing,
I'm not really laughing,
i was trying so hard to hide
my sadness.
