I wish you love for there's no better thing that I'm able to do
May the sun always shine upon you when you're feeling blue

If your eyes fall upon these words then they are meant for you
I wish you a lifetime of happiness, hoping your dreams come true

Praying that any dismal clouds of sorrow will swiftly drift on by
May peace arise from within to wipe away any tear you may cry

Flowers are tumbling from the skies, songbirds joyously fly free
Singing 'let's bridge the gap, in reality, there is no 'you' and 'me'

Thank you for your posies, more than just words upon the page
We all play our little part wearing the persona, life is but a stage...
I'm so sorry, I still can't get to any page except notification or message

All my love and best wishes...Kim x

God Bless you us all
I wish I knew
Why you couldn’t love me
But maybe the truth
Would break my heart?
Life is like the weather...
insuppressible and barely predictable.
Jenny Umansky
let me in
let me be your sunshine

let me in
let me be your light

ill show you a world
where trees smell like fresh pine

believe me
its a beautiful sight
You all say such nice things to me
Such pretty empty words
Paint me beautiful with compliments
But underneath all the colors run together
And it’s just a mess
Keep your sweet words
Give me something real
I am drowning and you are throwing flower petals at me
I could make you love me
It’s an easy thing
To do
But instead I make you
Hate me
Not because it’s easier for you
But because I cannot see
A single bit of worth
That comes from loving me
Loving only hurts
my spine coughs
****** smoke
& anger drives
my vertebrae
to get close
to the heart
& cleave it
with bony blood
Isn't giving up lovely?

What will I ever do?
Hey world,
Quit looking at me

They know my name
Why do they know my name?

Wait for the opportunity to
Knock me off my feet

I just want to tell my story

Don't let me go crazy

Are you with me?

Give and take
Speak a little louder

Listen a little better

Won't back down
Win or lose

Add a little sugar
Coat it
Make the truth easier to swallow

Death is but a step
A lesson to be learned
A step we all will take
Few yearn
For with an unfeigned step
Comes loss of
Earthly concerns
Death is but another
Lesson to be learned
one top of the other
At this point im running out of words to say
Guilt, regret ,shame,
Its pushing me all the way
Somethings wrong,
i feel it, sense it, and i dont want to let go of it
im so confused i dont even know what to do
In a few weeks ill be still in the same page and i,just want to get away
Not feeling lost, just getting healed
But lately every time i breathe i just feel like nothing is filling and im not feeling right now,
i feel like that the best to be compressed ** i feel and just say less.
Patches of Thought

loneliness is real
don't doubt it for a moment
it can make you motionless
you can't get out of your own head
everything is frozen in time
time is your enemy
an emptiness you can't fill

But, it can be filled

Wipe your eyes
tomorrow you'll
see the world differently

This is just for those who are seemingly lost in their loneliness.  May you find your way out of it. God Bless

Catch the waning
moon. It may not come
back tomorrow.

The traveller stops
under the sun, not to ask
for shade. The anger
was rising.

Like candle light
brightening your face
in autumn halo.

Would you like
to read a love sonnet
to retrieve the lost
Taj Mahel?

Squeezing the cool
bright moon in a glass of
drink, I want to see you
mutable moods.
Your words are like an arsenic drip
  slowly destroying me from the inside

As I Kiss my love
Over and over
Smiling loving you,
My love is true,
But forever in
Love with you,
A soft Whisper,

I Love.... You,
As I hold you forever
Inside my heart
And in my arms
Your best gift in my life,

And the perfect love, who's
Touched my heart.....
In my dreams is where I see you
As beautiful and angelic as ever
Then I wake up in some sort of nightmare
Because you aren't here with me
So until we can meet again my love
In my dreams is where you will stay
In sweet bliss
And perfect happiness
you are a beautiful mental disorder
that whenever my mind is thinking of you
it delivers me tickling signals in my stomach
giving me smiles in most difficult times,
pressures in my heart but lightly and gentle,
the symptoms aren't visible with bare eyes
so I tried to search my soul and meet yours
my knees are trembling and makes me fall
--in love for you
you aren't a disorder, I was kidding
you fixed me :>
You’re hurting, I know.
I hope to bring solace
to a desolate soul.
Even If I tried
I couldn’t replace you.
I must admit you‘re
my favorite shade of blue.
What is said is true of the plenty
of fish in the sea,
but you are a mermaid
basking by the beach.
it was on her shirt and yea idk. cringe? maybe.. mean it? also maybe

when the rain sets in
rainbows ahead of the pain
don't think of my shame
when I'm blue
Our eyes cannot think still (she) is exposed to every possible emotion we experience
In the way that we ease our emotions when we cry amazing isn't (she) how it partners with the soul
Tiny little reminders
Clogging my confidence
Defining my self
in black and white moonlit dreams
you’re not under my skin
you’re kissing it
i’m not stealing your time
i own it
we’re not avoiding love
we’re making it
reality, however,
is in screaming color
Today is a new day
(Jīntiān shì yīgè quánxīn de yītiān)
Once it is tomorrow
(Yīdàn míngtiān)
I will never see today again
(Wǒ jīntiān zài yě jiàn bù dàole)
so I will have to make today
(Suǒyǐ wǒ jīntiān bìxū zuò)
make it a life changing
(Ràng tā gǎibiàn shēnghuó)
To bad I can't post the Chinese characters
I look in the mirror and see
Wrinkles impressed upon me
Some from good and some for bad
I've earned each one, I'm not sad

Each wrinkle tells a story
Some glad some gory
So many ups and downs
Caused the smiles and frowns

I gaze the mirror and ask
Is this really me I take to task?
How did time fly by so fast?
My life is set in wrinkles cast

Upon my face, I wear my life
My sons and dearest wife
Some happened in the fire
Some took form because it was dire

I prefer the ones that came from smiles
A raised brow to see for miles
A ripple around my face pointed up
I wouldn’t remove a wrinkle, it's been my cup
I see him and I cry
He was my best friend
Now my enemy
I ask why
But i'll never get an answer
purple beams
Why does the sun shine
on empty branches?
The wind rustles the grass
like I rustle my guitar.
Wish the clouds could
take me to Paris.
I am a basketball
I am able to hit the ground and bounce back up like a person on a trampoline
I am happy when I go inside a basketball net
I am sad when I miss the basketball net
I wish I could be in the basketball net and never fall out
I would like to tell my owner (Please be a basketball legend, like King James)!
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 ****** –”
I know it sounds ******,
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.
If I wrote down
everything I hate about myself
I’d have enough content
for multiple novels.

If I wrote down
everything I like about myself,
it’d be summed up in one word.

stonned poet
I see people changed,
I see world changed,
I see my luck changed,
I see everyone changed,
I survived.
But the moment when you will change
I’ll die.
I cant find joy anymore.
I have looked under every rock,
And behind every tree.
Ive searched through fields.

I dont know when she left,
I just remember waking up one morning feeling a little emptier
And a little more lost.

Its been cloudy every day since.
no matter how hard
these winds blow and shake me
i stay  r o o t e d  with the Earth

storms exist to awake me
one of the first few
rhymes i ever wrote
*and still my favorite*

Her eyes
reflect my moon.
In her eyes
it's always full.

A big thnx to all readers and those who appreciated, thnx hp, thnx Elliott
Both can ****
        The only difference is
                      Cigarettes shatter lungs
         She shatters everything

            I remembered the first moment
my lips pressed the filter
     as I lit it up breathed it all
                savored every smoke
       as if we covered up painful lies
        in a container of painkillers

The same way  
we used to pressed our lips
     sparked something between us
           savored every moment we had
    as if our love was a rose
               in a valley of tulips

Distance yourself
from this world
before you
into its troubled atmosphere
are hurled
Cyprian Van Dyke
A he-moth looks at her tonight,
So beautiful, a she-firefly.
Fluttering wings sails him thru wind.
Eyes on her light is steering him.
Unlike candles with flames on a stem,
Her light is bright like a cigarette ****.
It’s her light he wants, he loves.
She’s on fire, but she is cold.
He’s in heat and only has eyes for her,
And she has nowhere to go.
Praying for the sun to come up
Before the he-moth catches up,
Knowing he will seek shade
And retire for the day.
The he-moth is so near yet so far away.
As he draws closer a bat swoops down
And takes him as his prey.
She flies off and sees another firefly
That takes her in the same way, as prey.
Yes, fireflies eat fireflies.
You didn’t know that?
Neither did I until today.

each intake is an escape
another swim in a lake of mistakes

a kiss of happiness in my lungs
a kiss of venom on my tongue

without surprise
i turn into the face you despise

a diabolical bliss
a soft kiss
of venom
this is based off a poem i saw on instagram
