Alone you sit,
Right here with me.
But do you see?

I hope you see.

Do you see?
Darkness surround.
Do you see?
Am I at last found?

Do I see?

I do not know.
Creeping in; No ember glows.
The fire fades,
The shadows creep.
Is it just me?
For eternity?
And there will be nights like this.
Nights that you rather not remember.
Where you beg for mercy.
Asking if you please don’t have to look into the  interstice pieces of the moon.
Because you can’t take another battle.
Another realization.

Another night.
Darren C Swartland
Though the line is thin
between love and hate.

There can be no room
nor freedom to escape
in cells of a rib cage.

What lies within
closed walls is solid,
undeniable like brick.

what's felt is watched upon
as if prisoners guarded
until time served has past.

Ice baracades may melt away
but true love shouldn't swim
in the path meant for hate.
Hazy street lamp light,
illuminating nocturnal spirits or otherwise
the ghost of a fire burning low,
all green tinder and ember,
its tender lain down
for the night.
This post is inspired by a glass of mediocre Cabernet Sauvignon...I don’t even drink reds
Abner Ros
I wish I were a bird
Though not just to fly
But to be void of troubles
That is why
Shouldn't we all?

You are sweet
Your sound seems tweet.
You are beautiful
You are artful.
When we were together
We were time unaware.
I don't see you anymore
You still find me in that mirror.
That because you still love me dear
From far away I still live closely and near.
Every single day I feel this distance
night clear stars glimmer
silently glowing embers
bodies sweat glistens
Goodbye to the tears rolling down my cheeks
Goodbye to the bleeding through my sheets
Goodbye to fighting a battle I'll never win.
Goodbye to a world full of sin.
Goodbye to a hopeless night.
Goodbye...I lost my fight.
Yeah idk This just kind of came out of my brain. I hope you guys like it!

Funny how you can
Tell the moon
Is full
Even with the
Blinds closed
Radiance of light
Can't help but
Shimmy their way
Through the slits
But you feel it
Like someone is
Looking over you
And you look.up
And a beautiful
Snow colored oval
Stares back at you
Perhaps with a
Knowing smile
I ask the people of the world
Why must we keep boxes of
each race, barricades in each
Borders, separate lives of each
Cultures, as our truth varries in
    each mirrored choices, then we
Carry the havy consequences,
The burden of these shackled
Past - we ponder to wonder
These nightmarish Regrets
So in the end, the answer is
Subjective, rules and walls
Are there for a reasonable
It maybe
good or bad
Light or dark
Day or night
An infinite battle
Running in circles
         to maintain
chaos and order
in one box.
we the inhabitants of the world
Conquerors to our own selfish deeds
Our Survival depends to the equally cruel
jungle and our own fellow.
make it stop
these awful thoughts
when i think i can
they say you better not
when i feel safe
they ask are you sure
until i find
i'm not anymore
when i trust myself
they wait for me
to fall back into my
many insecurities
they want me to fail
because they feed on my fear
they like when i fall
love the taste of my tears
Highlight my bruises.
Illuminate Hidden confessions;

Like petals;
I roam from wonder to another
Yet Swiftly
I vanish.
Taken upon course,
love indeed sails in all directions,
Thus why a relationship.

Taken upon growth,
love indeed does grow as two,
Thus why we fall if a Lover leaves.

Taken upon mystery,
love indeed does bare a lot anew,
Thus why love can be so obscure.

Taken upon feet,
love indeed does knock you over,
Thus why we fall by a love trip.

Taken upon pain,
love indeed can easily break heart,
Thus why we call it heartbroken.

Taken upon lies,
love indeed built upon such less lasts,
Thus why love can be deceive.

Taken upon God,
love indeed then is True and Pure,
Thus why love be immortal.

As are the things of love,
wonder, pain, anguish, strength
And our very weakness,
love is many in things.
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
My eyes

have dried

with the tears

I've cried.

And now

I'm hollow,

I've got nothing to give

And now

I'm done,

I've got nothing to live.
I'm fine. Okay, if not completely at the moment, I will be, sometime later.

Three words I kept from youー
Words you'll never hear nor read
No one will know, not even these words I write
I just hope the sky didn't eavesdropped that night
Cause it's a secret I only told the stars.

A progress in the works
Stu Harley
what is night
a lark descending
from flight
sacred moon
she dip both her wings
curious night
living water
i love you,
and to prove it,
i need to end myself?
it's not  that I'm scared,
but i would die,
not knowing,
if you smiled,
when you knew,
i loved you more than myself
a lot of people **** themselves to show someone how they love them, but if you did you will never be able to know if your love for them, made them smile
Zoe Mae
Stakes are high
So is your tail
You say it's not your fault
But that means nothing at all
It's written all over your face boy
You wrote it on my bedroom wall

Tide is low
So is your soul
You think that you've got *****
But that just means you're small
It's written all over the place boy
I read it in a bathroom stall  

But I gotta say
This dance...
In a way
It makes me happy
Songs I wrote when I was 18. I'm telling you guys. They sound a lot better with music. Anybody want to start a band?

The moon and I love to play hide and seek,
While I count one to ten,
She hides behind the clouds,
Sometimes the clouds are playful too,
They float away fast,
And I find her.
My beautiful sunflower,
of warm, yellow joy -
infectious - as sunshine
beams across our faces.

An abundance of petals,
golden in the light.
Growing toward the sun,
striving for perfection.

Our beautiful sunflower,
nurtured and thriving,
growing through my heart, warm
with happiness and love.
happiness of being in love? feels gross to read it now haha

When you feel low
When there's no where to go
When you don't feel at ease
When people are too hard to please

Breathe easy
Walk out and feel the breeze
Let go when you are feeling queasy
Drown your worries overseas

When it seems like life is unfair
When things are going nowhere
When you can't tolerate the fanfare
When you sleep upon a nightmare

Feel the air
Life will take care
Hibernate your grizzlybear
It is only human to err

Hear the sound of the zephyr
Take a seat on the lawn chair
Let life go laissez-faire
Take your worries elsewhere
The bright moon shining as we lay,
You in my arms, it's been the perfect day.
Pin drop silence everywhere
We are together, I am here.

I open my eyes and you've vanished,
Calling your name, I am panicked.
I can still feel you, my dear
We are not together, I am here.
Samual Hidden
On the darkest of days
You my fae
Guide my way
Like a light
From a torch
You my dear
Scorch the world
With your beauty
Like cleansing fire
cleansing me with desire
ashes to ashes
and dust to dust
we know no real pain
until we find trust
then that trust is broken
and so are our bones
i entered this world crying
and i'll leave it

I currently sail on a current away from my current frustrations
to a concurrent location
where I don’t stay recurrent with gyrations at endless durations
Melinda Barrett
I know you more than you know yourself and that’s why you resent me
Distant in the sky at night,
a profound and shiny light,
the moon slowly moves,
like a sloath on the roves.

A sensation in summertimes,
a cloud that sometimes
dresses the sky of white
when the moon guides my typewrite.

Time is the
to any

destination if handled properly. It's the quickest means to greatness.
if I could just
how I feel
would you still be here?
Jeremy Stacy
We’ve been here before haven’t we?
Two strangers could never love so passionately
I stare adamantly at your anatomy while you throw your debonair back at me
Ikari Kanashī
Do I talk too much?
I'm sorry... You're the first person to ever listen...
Bea Autumn
Time flies by so fast then its past

Remember special moments always last

So make some memories to treasure

Each day have and give some pleasure

So when second chances do come by

To love again say yes reach for the sky

Because I love the moments in time

When you're with me and you are mine

Cherish and relish everyday while you can

Precious are the moments when love is the plan
make every moment count
allowed to admit
these letters
are losing meaning
some days
i don't want to be me

some days i don't want
to be a person
Heavy Hearted
First is a tree who's name wasn't taught
Next, then of course,  a tree now forgot
And then many maples
A spruce and a birch,
Then the last leafless branch upon which these words perch:

Now Into blue sky
Through the swirled clouds I search
On this dock, or a bible
In this lake like a church;

My soul does the backstroke
Toward the blue dream, I lurch.
your name is
forbidden in
my mouth
or in my heart
because when
i think about

i'll cry a little more,
hurt a little stronger
love a little softer
because you no longer
make me feel sober

i'm drunk on the
memory of you
if only i could chase you with pizza but shots don't work like that
and we lied there
a bundle of limbs and skin
and I didn't know
where I stopped
and you began
His face
The sight brings a smile to yours
His eyes
You can stare into them forever
His lips
You wish you can kiss them
His hands
You wish you can intertwine them with yours
His mind
It intrigues you
His soul
You can love it for eternity
His heart
It doesn't belong to you
You were
My sigh of relief
And now
You’re gone
And I’m sitting here
Gasping for air
you never asked to read my poetry
maybe that was the sign.
i told you i wrote for fun,
you shrugged and moved on.
red flags went up everywhere, but i didn’t bother looking
