Lately I’ve been really thinking. How can we love someone unconditionally but can never apply that unconditional love for ourselves? We need that love too. I wanna love me to the moon and back. I wanna be comfortable with loving myself to the fullest.
Every word has a meaning
But every silence has one too.
My love, I see you walk in rays of light
Crowned in gold, a wondrous sight
You hold me close and my heart takes flight
the first time i saw you that day,
your eyes were red and beneath them were puffy.
you blinked slowly and stared off into nothing.
i'm sure you were thinking of either nothing or everything,
maybe both at the same time.
i couldn't help but reach out to hold your hands.
once upon a time…

only once?

she asked

yes once was enough & there is hope it will not be repeated over

the evil of it all

which time?

i am sure you remember…

prayers are spoken each hour

the bell rings

once upon a time..

only once?

she asked

no, it happens all the time when folk are kind all the time

it comes in layers like a trifle pudding

yet more important than a mere dessert

prayers were spoken each hour

the bell rang

once upon a time

A million idiots,
Are more powerful,
Than a billion eggheads,
That slept on their senses.
Two “loving” parents and 4 “happy” kids
All dressed in coordinating clothes
We looked happy as can be
No one would’ve guessed-
Not ten minutes earlier
We were wiping away our tears
And applying concealer to countless bruises..
Don’t ask why, you don’t really care
We hide our trauma, we hide our scars
It’s better this way
Less pain for everybody
After all, as long as we’re grinning for the camera
Nothing could be wrong
In our sickly sweet, happy lives.
I don’t dye my hair or dress in only black
So I guess everything’s okay?
Doesn’t matter that I constantly wear long sleeves
And flinch at every noise or touch...
I’m both begging to be loved
And desperate to float by unnoticed
I’ll smile for the picture
And pray that it’s enough

I became famous so I
could take my shirt off.

I became famous so I
could make out.

I became famous so I
could meet Tom Welling.

I became famous so I
could have my own butler.

I became famous so I
could ditch my Religion.
Oh the smile indifference lifts upon my face

It’s neither this nor that
I don’t need nor want any sort of embrace
Disconnecting, always take first place
No suffering
No desire for anything better
No contempt for more or less

Oh the smile indifference lifts upon my face
Mary Gay Kearns
Few people can be beleived
The lips are packed with lies
Words fall as if manœuvred
To benefit selfishness’s world.

I carry the dust of deceitful
tongues, swollen, diseased
Where is cleanliness left?
‘The dog’s bowl at the door’.

Love Mary ***
Spilling my truth as if it were my own blood
It drains me as I search myself
For what sleeps inside
Sums it up.

ln a room with so many people
l can only hear your voice
is that love?
another random thought , help with the title
So, you fancy fame?
Are you willing to step into the frame,
And give up your life
In exchange for the spotlight?

It could go out soon.
Listen to the monster's croon.

So, you envy the game?
Will you keep your reputation tame?

And listen as they watch,
While you are left all done and used

Like another belt notch.
For every lie told
In the name of love
I am tired!!!
I wait for you!!!
Masha Yurkevich
In the morning,
I was determined to move
the mountains.

By the afternoon...


I decided to let them stay where they are.
I guess I kinda gave up.
Crushing gravity;
Knowing that I crave human
intimate moments.

Your soul is the moon after dawn
A vapour who sings of love as well as pain
A delicate blossom that twirls with zephyrs
Fragrant and enriched by the snow's kiss
The geese have fled from iced lakes
long preserved with whispers of old
In the shade of bamboo, my flute is heard,
carried to you by the frost-kissed air
Your soul, a vapour, the moon after dawn
Hear my hymn of peace,
till winters turn to fawn

My head's still in the clouds! ^-^
I'm trying SO HARD not to freak out about my media course interview...

Pulled in this way,
Pulled in that way
As if they are trying to
Hurt the rope,
But, rope isn’t the one
Who's getting blisters
ting is
your           life
thro             ugh
a ne           edle
and         if
you sew
Winter springs
into summer,
as the setting sun.
Summer falls
into winter
and then all at once.
Thomas Wan
Love is like taxis
They're everywhere when you don't need it
But nowhere to be found when you do
someday it will
come again.
someday someone
will come in.

a star
with the deepest depths in the eyes
with the gentlest of breaths
and endless soul in the smile

one day
i'll forgive this pain
not forget -
we are all destined to love again, i am sure
you left me

don't you dare get after me
because i'm doing what i please
with whom i please

i am not yours anymore
don't act like i am


after you gave me up
go awaaaaay im so over it *******
esther fraser
i fell for you and you only watched.
something shall touch us
and it shall touch deep
in the sensation of touch
emotions shall freely seep

being touched by love
a never forgotten tingle
wherein our hearts
feel a poignant jingle

Plato's quote still
bears relevance to-day
on the way love's receipt
does in us play

oh poets shall touch
the inner core with
a repository of the
wordsmith's lore
I'm stuck between the
past and the future.
memories and dreams
life and death.
I am chaos and I am desire.

So say my dreams.

It's always between the two.

Last night I had a pleasant dream that I was dating her.

It was sweet.
Precious even.

But when I awoke I had to deal with different things.

It's ****** that I still write about her, but what can you do.

The heart wants what the heart wants, so someone said.

Right now my heart only seeks friendship from her. Ot at least,

She didn't even want to give me that.

Dear H.

Love R,

I am exhausted
with your

The chattering muons
rain upon my

this crushing

of everything

I wish I were made of stone
So your words would never hurt me
I wish I were cold as ice
Then maybe I wouldn't be lonely

I wish I were made of steel
So my strength would never waver
If only I could turn back the clock
To a time when I felt safer

But I'm only flesh and bone
And your words have left me bleeding
My heart is torn apart
It's a wonder it's still beating

You made up your mind
Given me your final answer
What we shared is in the past
Time to write a brand new chapter

I will fix my broken heart
Some how glue it back together
It may never be the same
It'll bare this scar forever

But I'll be strong, I'll be alright
Though I'm not as hard as steel
And I can't turn back the clock
In heart will heal
Ariana Bagley
I love him
I tell myself
I know that
We will be together forever
I don’t believe that
We could be separated
My thoughts tell me that
He’s the love of my life
Sometimes my heart lies and says
I could live an eternity
Without him
Like my friends say
“We’re perfect for each other”
And you can’t tell me
He’s not the one.

Now read from bottom to top.
Putting the laundry out
I break form
And fold myself over the line
To hang
‘are you lonely?’
my reflection asks,
her fingertips touching mine.
‘no,’ i smile

‘i have you.’
maybe my own company isn’t so bad after all.
Sydney Rose
i realized that everything
i always wanted

can be granted
in the clumsy hands of mine

when i finally release everything
i was never meant to be granted
Grace Spellman
hey you
we haven't really talked
in a while
which is funny because
i've memorized every inch of your profile
the softness of your deep eyes
that you hate so much
that i sometimes hate too
lately i just feel so far away from you
pull and tug
tug and pull
why won't you just let me
make your heart full?

on and off as we are, you're the only one i'll ever want. ****** loyal for you bby.
I saw a monster this morning
staring back at me
when I looked in the mirror
i couldn't recognise my eyes
it was like all the life had drained from them
