Time, for love,
Fine, for time,
Mine, you are fine,
A dime, to have you as mine,
A dime, to ear in your growth to shine,
Shine, as there is always a new tomorrow.

Gone are the ways of my past
Realizing reality doesn’t require me
Eating just to stay alive another day
As if that is worth my time
Taking every hit in stride
Kirsty Taylor
Boil the kettle.
Look out the window,                                  
To a world full of golden hues.

Red, Orange, Beige,
The crisp sound of leaves crunching,
as you feel the frosty wind hits your face.

The cosy cream cardigan,
you bought at a car boot sale.
It has arrived,
the time of nights in by the fire.
Endless cups of tea and walks in the rain.
David Løkken
Have you ever felt the silence?
The silence that drags you down,
into to the dark void where everything feels... empty.

The emptiness makes you gasp for air and wish you could turn off your mind.
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)
You, you, you
Wanna be in love with you
Gonna fall in love with you
If it’s the only thing I do.

You, you, you
Need to wear my wedding ring
If you’d do that special thing
I would feel just like a king

You, you, you
I’m in love with you, you, you
Tell me that you love me too
And make all my dreams come true
An old song becomes an ear worm.
she accepted people’s bad behavior,
because she thought,
they went through  difficult things.
yet, she invalidated her own feelings,
even if she knew what she went through.

At the moment, only drugs can let me escape from this reality
I wanna go back to my small cocoon world
I went out once
I almost died
Never coming out till then
When everyone will wanna be me
This time, not even the most beautiful ill get me out of this
We lied
When we said we would hide
It was not intentional
It is just when you got to ten
There was no place to hide
At the seaside
a few failures away
from death
hoping you are mine what's meant to be
all that's you fit perfectly with my wildest dream
The day came when my pen no longer
Wrote your name
Comes in many forms
George Krokos
I wish I was a billionaire
so I could travel everywhere
in my own private aeroplane
go see the world and not be vain
in a much more conducive time
and write about it all in rhyme.
Helping all those needy people
regardless of their own steeple
who'd come across my path to be
and give to them a hand from me
for all their immediate needs
as an example of good deeds.
Written in 2020. Wouldn't it be great?!
Our tired souls want to listen to the soundof birds
are you aware
Amanda Kay Burke
There is much about you to remember
Am terrified I might forget
To me appears you already have
Realization that makes me upset

Nothing to stop image from fading
From brain a bit more each day
Picture your face so clearly now
Know time will steal it away

Writing all our memories
The best way to ensure
In some way I'll preserve you forever
The perfect specimens we were

You do not care
Freeze precious snapshots
Because to you they did not matter
If love was a delicate vase
You would purposefully topple it simply to see shatter

Sit down to rest tired feet
Exhausted from leading around in laps
Do not know you're giving me the runaround
You set fire to all the maps
You can repair something broken but you will always have to see the cracks where you glued the pieces back together as long as you live
When I was younger, I was told not to feel
"You'll just get hurt"
I listened

But then I see these people
Laughing and living

I disobeyed and felt
I was alive

But I should have listened
Now I'm hurt
Now I'm broken
Now I'm -
I’ve been kissed in the night
by the moon
Everything so  light.
What a delight!!
Changes are following
Changes of  tides
During day time I am blue.
The kiss was tender ,It’s true.
It’s the key for my existence
For me to be!
I am the sea!!

He told me
"I will always smile  when I am with you"

We are nothing to the world
But the world to the beloved ones
As a drop of water is a few in the sea
But nectar to the thirsty bird.
i still
do not know
the poem i've been trying to write
and maybe
that's because
i haven't been
writing one at all
or maybe it's because
the poem i've been trying to write
is not ready for paper
and maybe
i'm the paper
that's not ready for it
Caitlyn Fletcher
I spend too many nights thinking
Wondering, writing, dreaming
Of someone who doesn't even think of me
She said "I'm falling in love."

I said "I'm falling apart."
What's the difference?
Terry Collett
Oi cud 'ear de bell
from de abbey cloister
it wus tellin' me
it wus time ter rise
ter bake a new day-
they don't rin'
de abbey church bells
cos de neighbour's
over de fields
allerge ter be woken up
at foive
scon oi rise
from me scratcher
an' shake sleep
an' dreams from me noggin
an' walk down de corridor
ter de ablusions
for a call av nature
an' den back
ter wash an' shave
before matins
an' de first sung
prayers av de day.

Yesterday I cried to the moon
as she wiped my tears away
made my worries disappear
so I could sleep again.

Today I smile at the sun
and it shines back on me,
what a wonderful world
to be alive;
to be me.

you told me i was pretty,
but you said i looked prettier on my knees.
i spend my days
pouring myself into the cups of others

only to find that
when it’s time for myself
to take a sip

all that’s left
in my cup
is the remainder of a girl
who gave too much
self care is extremely important. most days I fight my depression by putting smiles onto others faces, but forgetting about my once bright smile.
Rollie Rathburn
Leave yourself nothing on either side
of this moment.
Steeping until it’s strength builds
so wildly
you forget everything that isn’t standing
right here.

Every edge of you
like handfuls of wet hair wrung over the kitchen sink.

The sound made darker
the darkness made
existing everywhere
at the end of time.

The day
You and Me
Today is our 11 year wedding anniversary 💜
Words can’t explain what my eyes have seen
The pain it holds
The tears it cried
One look in my eyes and you wouldn’t notice the pain nor the truth it hides
My eyes hold my secrets

I traced the texture of your words
Like my heart was blind
And your voice was braille
रक्त से लथपथ शैल गात व शोणित सिंचित काया,
कुरुक्षेत्र की धरती  पर लेटा  एक  नर   मुरझाया।
तन  पे  चोट लगी थी उसकी  जंघा टूट पड़ी थी त्यूं ,
जैसे मृदु माटी की मटकी हो कोई फूट पड़ी थी ज्यूं।

भाग्य सबल जब मानव का कैसे करतब दिखलाता है ,
किचित जब दुर्भाग्य प्रबल तब क्या नर को हो जाता है।
कौन जानता था जिसकी आज्ञा से शस्त्र उठाते  थे ,
जब  वो चाहे  भीष्म द्रोण तरकस से वाण चलाते थे ।

सकल क्षेत्र ये भारत का जिसकी क़दमों में रहता था ,
भानुमति का मात्र सहारा  सौ भ्राता संग फलता था ।
जरासंध सहचर जिसका औ कर्ण मित्र हितकारी था ,
शकुनि मामा कूटनीति का चतुर चपल खिलाड़ी था।

जो अंधे पिता धृतराष्ट्र का किंचित एक सहारा था,
माता के उर में बसता नयनों का एक सितारा था।
इधर  उधर  हो जाता था जिसके कहने पर सिंहासन ,
जिसकी आज्ञा से लड़ने को आतुर रहता था दु:शासन।

गज जब भी चलता है वन में शक्ति अक्षय लेकर के तन में,
तब जो पौधे पड़ते  पग में धूल धूसरित होते क्षण में।
अहंकार की चर्बी जब आंखों पे फलित हो जाती है,
तब विवेक मर जाता है औ बुद्धि गलित हो जाती है।

क्या धर्म है क्या न्याय है सही गलत का ज्ञान नहीं,
जो चाहे वो करता था क्या नीतियुक्त था भान नहीं।
ताकत के मद में पागल था वो दुर्योधन मतवाला,
ज्ञात नहीं था दुर्योधन को वो पीता विष का प्याला।

अजय अमिताभ सुमन:सर्वाधिकार सुरक्षित
जब सत्ता का नशा किसी व्यक्ति छा जाता है तब उसे ऐसा लगने लगता है कि वो सौरमंडल के सूर्य की तरह पूरे विश्व का केंद्र है और पूरी दुनिया उसी के चारो ओर ठीक वैसे हीं चक्कर लगा रही है जैसे कि सौर मंडल के ग्रह जैसे कि पृथ्वी, मांगल, शुक्र, शनि इत्यादि सूर्य का चक्कर लगाते हैं। न केवल  वो  अपने  हर फैसले को सही मानता है अपितु उसे औरों पर थोपने की कोशिश भी करता है। नतीजा ये होता है कि उसे उचित और अनुचित का भान नही होता और अक्सर उससे अनुचित कर्म हीं प्रतिफलित होते हैं।कुछ इसी तरह की मनोवृत्ति का शिकार था दुर्योधन प्रस्तुत है महाभारत के इसी पात्र के विभिन्न पहलुओं पर प्रकाश डालती हुई कविता "दुर्योधन कब मिट पाया"  का  प्रथम भाग।
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!
Exclamation 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!
Traveler Tim

No matter who you are
You have my deepest respect!

All is vanity
The meanings of passion
The aesthetic expression
The lines we draw and stay within
Even love is beyond intent
Vanity transcends
Flowing from our pens
And so we breathe again
She was a thrifted sweater and denim and jersey knit sheets
Pizza breath and red wine and toothpaste
Alabaster skin and knotted hair and freckled shoulders
A tangible dream and my favorite good morning
She agreed to let me kiss her and I agreed to let her slip my shirt over my head before she became
Blood and tears
"I trusted you" and "I’m sorry"
Midnight poems and a drunk "I need you"
I’m afraid I loved you like the way I wrote
Andrew Layman
My feeling have issues
I'm trying to live
aside from the anger
I'm trying to give
nerve endings scream
you cannot go numb
breeding the theme
that I'm coming from.
My entire life,
I have been waiting.
For years,
Almost two decades now
I have been waiting.
For the better parts.
For the “soon”.
For my life to begin.
I don’t feel like I have lived.
In the nearly twenty years
I have been alive
And breathing
I do not feel
In any of those years
That I have been alive.
I don’t feel like a single breath
That I have taken
Has been real.
I feel as if
All these years
I’ve been stuck
Behind a window
Watching as my life unfolds
Before me.
I feel that
I have had
Zero control.
That I am in the backseat
Letting someone else drive.
That someone else,
Is writing on the pages
Of MY life.
But no more.
I will break that window,
I will take that wheel,
And I will write
My own pages.
My life has begun,
And now -
I’m in control.
Yesterday, April 8th, was my birthday. I wrote this poem two years ago, when I was 19 almost 20, and on my 22nd birthday I find that the website selected it as a daily and I have all these wonderful people saying wonderful things about my poetry. Thank you Hello Poetry, and thank you everyone else. This was the best birthday present I could have even gotten. (04/09/2021)
Forgive me father for I have sinned.

I have loved her more desperately than any god.

I speak of a heaven that only exists when she is near.

She is not made from my rib or my flesh — she is my very soul.

If she ever leaves the place in my chest I’ve now named hers,

I will lock the doors, pull the blinds,

But I will not turn out the light,

So that she can find her way back home.
She Writes
Nothing is louder
Than silent tears
And 2 a.m. overthinking
Someone once told me :
always remember that,
some people come into your life to make chaos.
and some people and come into your life to show love.

Some people will use you
Some people will always be there for you
Some people will be true
Some people will lie
Sometimes you will learn from a mistake
Sometimes you fall and that’s okay.

Sometimes you’ll  fall in love to hard
Sometimes you’ll cry alone
But you’ll be okay even if you’re alone
I'm sinking farther into the sea
Air cut off, unable to breathe

But it's not all too bad
The water's warm
and the fish look nice

It's a shame I can only see this
By myself
at the end.
There were segments of you through this world mirror parallel..

Increase the mystery of your smile as your tears leave behind light trails.

I can't find you anywhere..

Even though I can make the anywhere...

This control let me give in..

And it also let me reverse all of my sins..

And through all the magical haze..

You are still lost in my dream maze..
