He said he loved me

I said I liked him too
I now draw black lines
on my arm.
instead drawing red lines
on my arm.
just because you needed
to care about me.
This disease struck me
Like a brick on pavement

Everything was
Then that brick came along
And with the slightest movement
Destroyed everything

“Count it
Perfect it
Measure it
Clean it”
The voices say

Why can’t I let them go?
They keep repeating:

“Count it
Perfect it
Measure it
Clean it”
Why won’t they stop

“Count it
Perfect it
Measure it
Clean it”
I don’t understand

“Count it
Perfect it
Measure it
Clean it”
Someone just HELP me understand

This disease is about
But it's the biggest
Imperfection about me

I am leaving, sweetheart
No you mustn’t cry
I want you to take my soul
I give her to you

She sings, sweetheart
Beautiful melodies, you’ll love them
I hear my requiem deep within me
We’re saying our goodbyes

She dances, sweetheart
Around and around the table
Boat rocking on treble waves
I feel the rhythm in my toes

Don’t cry, sweetheart
My body may be dying
But all I am, all I have ever been is with you now
Keep her safe for me
Could I take hold of your smile
Take a picture if you'd like
So I can put it in my pocket
And pretend that you are mine
For a day or two only

Can I borrow your talent
To impress with your words
For a day or two only
So I can make you love me
Let a man call misunderstanding bad luck.
God of Mercy, is it misunderstanding or bad luck.
Devil say is a bad luck and they trust.
I say is a misunderstanding but they do not trust.
Any training is a bad luck to you
Any tough moment is a bad luck to you
Is it not misunderstanding, this is misunderstanding.
Is it a bad luck or misunderstanding?

Is it fair for an unrecognized entrepreneur to search for a job?
If yes that is misunderstanding, pray for him/her to understand.
Is it fair for one man to get a Job and ten become jobless?

I like to say
your name

when you're
not here

turn you
into sound

conjure you out of
thin air

so that you appear
before me

dressed in sound

memory sketching in
the rest of you

as if sound
was just an outline

and love
colours you in

adding the voice last
so I can hear you say.

"Hello you..!"
and there you are

as present
as present

can be.

I like to say
your name

when you're
not there.
thank you
for the
that no
are they**
than my voice.
**anything/anyone trying to tear me down, whether mentally or situational

!!Don't forget to get out to those polls!!
Change is coming.

Do me a favor. Keep being you.
Sa bawat iyak sa sulok
Sa bawat tulo ng aking mga luha.

Ikaw ang nag - bigay ng lakas at saya sa aking buhay.

Mga bawat ala - ala na hindi maganda
Tinanggal mo gamit ang biyaya.

Sa bawat takot na mawala ka
Alam kong andito ka.

Andito sa tabi ko hanggang magpa kailan man.

Mga oras kung saan hinahanap hanap kita
Ika’y natagpuan sa loob ng aking puso

Tinitibok ang iyong pangalan.

ok okay
So many people focus on finding love
I'm too busy finding myself
heart made of glass
my mind of stone -
a soul made of fire
eyes burn alone
raising my voice and
walls of fear
someday i'll make it
out of here -
I know I know I know
Human emotions are simply complex
I understand but can’t control them
Every second is different
I’m in the middle of polar opposite
thoughts and emotions
I’m happy
I want to be dead.
Bipolar milliseconds
are draining my core.

in May,
now I know that every
love is prone to decay

Sleep's not the cure
but it sure as hell helps to
ease some of this pain

Why are we here when
awareness cites through
the left and the right
Self questions self
There is no us and them
Just us
To effect our reality
we need to
become bigger than I

She was like a black rose,
such a beauty in a sadness.

Today is a good day.

To youtube: charles jenkins my god is awesome
And when you left
I overwatered all your flowers
Dr Peter Lim
While on we sleep
the day's incomings
and outgoings we have forgotten
but our secrets night does record and keep

as in a chronicle, deep
into time-  stories will be reborn
highlighted in imaginings that leap-
not a single past page shall ever be torn
Hands, never can I touch
Heart, I'll never catch
I really hate loving You
yet there's nothing i can do
bounded by cupid's arrow
Mi Amor, My endless sorrow
I do not feel much these days
Seems like I'm running out
Losing feelings I'm always
Stressed and complaining about

Yet as much as I whine
When angry
Or glum
I would rather feel scared and sad all the time
Than feel completely numb
You hated me that day,
I said,‘I love you’
I moved on sad, defeated;
It’s been decades,
Since we met;
Don’t know if we will,
Ever meet again;
Is it just my feelings
That you love me too!?
For I hear you say so,
In every sunrise;
Every blooming flowers,
Fragrance so deep;
Myriads of lights shine,
In my heart and mind;
When I am alone,
Thinking ‘bout you...
Sue Collins
I would like to live.
You don't know
why the dog is
afraid of you:
I do.
You don't like the fear? Do something about it.

I'VE been crying

JUST quit hurting

TRIED to live on

TO you

FORGET the hurt

i've just tried to forget
maybe if you knew
all this poetry I'm writing
is only for you

maybe you'd give me a second chance
she is a happy ending,
not everyone can wait for.
all the fireflies have gone
and I am abandoned in darkness
here, I can feel the emptiness
of where love used to live
I wanna get you close to me
I wanna be your Annabel Lee
I wanna hear you say my name
I wanna see this burning flamme
I wanna be your every dream
I wanna you to be my king
I wanna have it all
Get to your mind and soul
Run my fingers on your skin
And taste your fever,
What do I mean ?;)
The warmth of skin
In search of paradise
The winter is kept away from this chill of discovery
Hidden from our very eyes
The blanket of security hides our sin
Harshitha Girish
Everyone thought she was the
icing on the cake.

Little did they know
she was the sparklers you put
on the cake.
To all the fiery and dangerous women. I wouldn't mess with them if i were you!
I find beauty in dark places
Love in mysterious ways
Comfort in unbelievable happenings
I'm not weird
I just pay attention to things others neglect.
Life isn't worth living if it's viewed in one perspective

Dear HP,

This is not a poem
But a question
The answer to which
I do hope you have

Why does my lover claim to love me
But still looks for every opportunity
To let me go?

Is it that she loves me so much
But doesn't think she's worthy of me

Or she doesn't love me enough
To think I'm worthy of her?
Bought some roses for my lady and added a little note with it:

Republicans are Red
Democrats are Blue
And just like them
I don't give a **** about you
He has
Cloudy eyes
Pock-marked skin
Forgotten desires

He has
Too many
You died that day.
No, your heart beat on--
But you died that day.
I watched your soul break
And I broke too.
I don't fear the death of me,
I fear the death of you.
Shreya Ghosh
I love you
Doesn't mean I love you

It means your eyes
Are deep enough
For me to dive in
And trust the waters
To keep my secrets

It means your lips
Are never harsh upon me
And they make me happy
Every single time they open

It means your hands
Are with you always
Except when I call them
To hug me and leave traces on me

It means your ears
Never get tired of
What my lips convey
And never will , they respond

It means your heart
Has touched my heart
And they'll never get apart
Like they are in a hug for eternity

It means you are special
It means you are mine
So I can be possessive
And you'll say nothing
I can be jealous too
And you'll never see
My hand leave yours
Or our hearts leave the hug

You are mine
And you will remain mine
