i’m build from the fire
that evens you with ground

i rise
whenever you fall

don’t underestimate the power
of a builder

we can see a house
even if it’s broken down
- you wouldn’t understand
Peter Balkus
Avoid darkness,
befriend light.
Keep your eyes open

One day
the real light
will flood your eyes,

but you
- you won't go blind.
Muluuta Mugagga
I am searching
and thinking
does the world own
an all-embracing
and unifying
The world is full of intellectuals and others. Have they ever had a unifying philosophy?
Ramana Tandra
Cages wept
When the parrots left
They tasted
The freedom the best
Targets never argue
And bullets never lie
Finances and fiancees
Certainly have some value
Yet we underrate our skies
Miles of lost continents
Drift out from your skin
We begin an embargo
Hoping in the future we will win
Metaphysical furniture
Effects the state of mind you're in
The record player is turned down
Heat me up and we'll begin
oh, but look at what grew

all because of the dirt
that they once threw
nightmares every night
all of the guilt and shame of the people everywhere
comes inside me
it forces itself in
im paralyzed to my bed
and i just sit there
inviting it
coming inside
it is so heavy i barely manage to breathe
it makes me huge
fat ballon pushing my insides out
my eyes the eyes of a frog
big enough to LOOK AND SEE
and feel
and dream
your dreams
your pain
"not anymore'' i say to you
" its yours take it
care for it
i need to let go
and to leave... "
so i wake up.

but it continues
manic laughter and tears
every night its the same
in the day i forget
in the night im afraid
in the dreams i remember
ignorance is bliss
so i wake up.

and it starts over
im havjng a lot of nightmares and scary **** so im feeling a bit messy
Lonely one
Broken one
Tortured soul
Your song of despair is heard
Just take a look up
The stars shine for you
See them flickering?
As if to say look at us
Look how pretty we are
You are made of us

You are so loved
Not by people
By us
i never intended
to take apart
all the pieces
you glued back
August burned quickly, incipient nostalgia
prematurely vanished, mellow and gentle
sea stone on the tiled table, cedar plank
with fish, sunset through the eye-slit window

thigh high in life and riding wherever life
takes me like a hopeless romantic
shout out to ang for lighting literally every poem of mine up

There has always been a bus
Changing but constant
Reflecting my setting

Buses were peppers
A pop at the end of my day
Thirty bored children and one angry adult
The noise supporting us

Buses are lighters
Useful and dangerous
Tired people on the verge of tears
Anti social yet so supportive

Buses will be crystals
The excitement of limited exploration in the air
Too jaded to be cynical
The support of a daydream
Paras Bajaj
If you can be cold,
I can be colder.
If you can be strong,
I can be stronger.

I haven't been writing lately ,
just not to make it about you
poems have been my possession
i don't want to pen down you ,
for i know you'll take this away too...
Ziya mansoor
No one there for it
to see in to my dream
my ideas are sleeping
no one to lighten the dark ,
to lighten the small light
under the black cloud
waiting for a bright light
to light on me , on my dreams

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
Find hope through God
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.
Declan ODonohue
I’m an awkward guy
I know it
But when I tell you that I love you
It feels so mundane, cliche
Everyone says that
Everyone uses that word
It can’t possibly mean all of the things that I feel inside
So when I say it
I say it in a cutesy voice
Because inside
My heart is screaming a million things at once
And the closest translation
The only translation available
I love you.
I’ve been writing my own poetry for years, and I’ve never been brave enough to share it with my wife. I wrote this one day and stashed it with all of my other poems, hidden in plain sight in our house. Maybe she’ll find it by accident someday, or maybe she already has.
Anika Nelson
You're thirsty?
Let me offer you some of my tears!
(I've got plenty)
Joshua Marshall
I'm sorry, I have to
break your heart.
I can't pretend to
feel the same.

It may mean we
have to part.
You'll forgive me
one of these days.
Your soothing voice has lulled me to sleep
But I'm waking up alone

There are no perfect goodbyes
As hard as may try
We can plan them
Imagine them
But there are no perfect goodbyes
harlee kae
when you're little
everything feels black and white
good vs evil
a perfectly labeled box
for you to divide people into
experiences into

but the older i get
the more i realize
life is all about the gray
and most things are a mix of good and bad
happy and sad
an abundance of hues
some in crisp lines
and others splattered all about

and that maybe it's up to us
to make the painting worthwhile
i don't know. it was better in my head.
hey you. why
do                          you
always                       want
to                          confuse

t      .      h
when emotions goes overboard. what do you choose more- listening to your head or your heart more?
In my madness
I’m a lone wolf

When I’m sane I will be with you
I’ll care for you
I’ll be kind
I’ll smile and chat

But in my madness
I’ll be magnificent
Greater than Life

Nobody dare to touch me

When I’m sane I’ll be with you
When I’m mad
I’ll write poetry

I’ll be with you when I’m sane
Because you read my poetry
Mark levitt
I am transcendental
I am the sun and the moon
And the stars
I am energy
I am the duality of the person
In the mirror
And I will carry no malice
Towards who I just saw
Sam Hawkins
do you feel sense shift

corner turn
wind bring mary poppins
north from ancestral land

sky-blue signals
perfect blue

blue of whale
blue eyes of the newborn

blue of the revolution

this morning a half moon
over the mountain south of the peak

three clouds
thinning to two

over sedona red rock
one o so tiny cloud
has near disappeared

to blue signals
Was out walking, just have gotten back---feeling giant change this may 24th 2019 9:52 a.m. high desert az. Is this me changing?

"I can see clearly now, the rain is gone...all of the sad feelings have disappeared" I love you, Jonny Nash.
Keep some fun
Keep the love
Get back your desire
Stop the whining
There wasn’t much to begin with
What’s the wall now?

Leave your prints on metals
Let them find you
Make the cold warm
Bring heart and body
Suspend yourself from dailys
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*
Ashly Kocher
At the end of the day
You are the heart of it all
I long only to be a lily pad
drifting down the river
Water lapping at my sides
Peter Balkus
Her eyes
reflect my moon.
In her eyes
it's always full.
Victoria Edwards
I walk through ****
To heal the fallen angels
Because halos shine brighter
In the glow of the underworld

They've abandoned God's light
In search for another
For within a sinful plight
The hater becomes the lover

And perhaps I'm them
trapped beneath an expression
Because in place of my God
I am stuck in depression
Woven in
Your favourite shirt...
Weft be your tune...
Warp the harmony.
My headset bridge
an uninterrupted bond.
Our song alive in my soul.
Award me Solace.
Succour from
Your Eternal silence.
By. Lauren

Is this really real?
Are you really here right now?
I heard the knock of a door.
Just my mind deceives me.
Are you really in my bed right now?
Or do I just want you.
Do you actually know my name right now?
Or am I dreaming?
I'm afraid I'm dreaming.
Pinch me if this is real.
Am I even writing this or are my thoughts just racing?
Am I just playing a game
Or are you here in my room?
In my bed next to me.
My heart is racing.
Is yours too?
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
might mix toxins
and let you drink them
if that means
he’ll be far from ur thoughts
and ill
get to feel your lips on mine
just for a little while
i hate u sober for you are so beautiful yet so unaware
Jayantee Khare
