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
With your words
The Knife.

Knowing and not knowing,
Afraid and clueless.

A thing that used to be,
The dust on the mantle.

Will never be the same
The blood that was spilled across the floor.

This crime scene filled with pain and sorrow and regret.  The murderer and the victim one in the same—but also separate.  Two hearts that both dance to the same miserable song.
Oof...  I wrote this one a while ago...

(Also this poem is dedicated to my father, like a like a lot of my poems)

and now i don’t know where you are.
Do I even know what happiness looks like?
Were you eve happy?
Do I only care about my own happiness?
Do I truly know what love is?
Am I OK?
I don't know anymore

Maybe just maybe you'll want me in another dimension diane.
Losing you
is the last thing
I want to

is what I

Every minute
I wish will
never end

You are amazing!
You're a star!
Trust me, I know
that's what you are

Funny, Kind, and Smart
Traits that help
heal a broken

Always there
cause you care
You will never walk
Little voices
Stuck in a trance
A key to dance
Wanting to be let out
For you
haven't been having a good day and this came to mind
I’m sorry you let me in
Now I’m a broken puzzle
All the pieces are broken.
Things won’t change,
Tape won’t cover the missing parts.
I thought you loved me.
I was just an object in your life.
I kept trying to make it work,
I just got a fire thrown at me.
If this love,
I don’t want to love anymore.
Why can't you comprehend
The words even my dog can understand
Aa Harvey

I will be with you through blood sweat and tears.
I will stick to you like note paper for years and years.
When you need someone to listen to, I will be all ears.
When the end comes and I fade away,
I will never truly leave your side; I will never disappear.

they said i was like a bird
supposed to fly in the air
without a care

so explain to me
Garrett Johnson
Emaciated Dawn.

Surged in the ecstasy.
Catacombs she asked.
I don't know where I'm going.
Where's going being gone without
Towards the other side.
Broken on through with leisure leaving trails.
And with the lover asking picture.
Moving languid.
Under the shirt.

Garrett Johnson
Getting near it.
I'm twenty five now
My eyes are wide
It took this long
To feel alive
So don't tell me I'm getting old
I'm just now living
The beginning was hell
I'm finally finding myself
They say it's only down hill from here
But that's fine with me
The adventure alone is worth the thrill
Slides are fun
fast and wild
No more treaching up a hill
Sounds good to me
So I'll keep sliding
No telling where this hill will find me
Always moving
Never whining
About a number
Or a line
On my face
Though time will change
I'll keep sliding
Fast and free
Down hill sounds fun to me

brown sweet eyes, curly hair slightly rough
firm light brown skin  
faint smell of cigarette smoke
mixed with little musky smell
of sweat
and a taste of slightly sour and sweet
it was years ago but I still remember
Shadow Dragon
Get a job,
a husband or wife.
Make yourself comfortable
in your own life.
So they tell me
or would have told me
if they were still alive.
But they are dying slowly
by the magic pills.
They are no longer there
to protect and care.
I no longer have devils
that whisper and scream.
They can do both
but now they are doing non.
And I can see myself having fun,
not caring or staring
into nothingness.
Yet it leaves me in mourning
to know they are about to die.
Maybe if I hold on a little longer
I won't be lonely and then find myself
a job, husband or wife.

desire for you
deep and strong
held tightly
like a child with a kite

stood by with a
soft smile
trust was pushed away
by me?
not entirely

but now i see
the toxicity you bring
no benefits with you

i was
were you too?

demons lie ravaged
by the light
the scorn of night
if they say a one-word poem,
i'll write your name...
Fire scales welcoming trees
To watch the wildlife stampede.
It's within their nature to flee
The ash nuzzled amongst scorched leaves,
And charred corpses exhaling steam.
tears glisten in the moonlight,
but it shines too bright.
blocking out reality,
and the sad fatality.
of my heart,
and it's broken parts.
Anakaren Davila
Here I am
As close to the ground
As I’ve been in the longest of times
I can taste the dirt
muddier than the day before
I can smell the earth
I can see the brown intertwined
With the green and a flower
Here and there

Here I am
Listening with my eyes closed
And arms wide open
to the music
I could almost call it noise
But in between each note
If i pay close attention
i hear a bird chirp
Here and there

Laying low
Back to my roots
Back to my home
What is Longing?
Longing is Love.
He said:
When I'm with you I miss her
When I'm with her I miss you...
That's Poliamory essence
Random thought at midnight.
Happy Family day
i met eyes with myself in the mirror this morning
we had a moment where time seemed to freeze
i saw that he'd got back his bearings
he saw I'd filled back up with light
we leaned back and laughed then kept staring
as yesterday limped out of sight
dragging away its bag of dry bones
do you ever feel
like a *******
rotting on the earth
for your rebirth
i met you
as the leaves fell
and the sky turned grey

the world grew cold
as my heart turned warm

i missed you
as the leaves grew back
and the sky turned blue

the world grew warm
as my heart turned cold

The depth of their romantic inhibition
is cigarettes, coffee, and fleeting pda
on public transportation

Inconvenience is an American bliss;
They sit within the door’s armspan
She refused back surgery to avoid pain,
but winces at the ebb and flow of the train

Hacking, wheezing laughter,
littered with glittering profanities
Utterly, wholly American
Someone look me up and define me
Please remind me

who I’m ‘sposed to be around you
so you will do what i want you to

I’m always winning the wrong game
I don’t remember my real name
the helpless long for it
the unknowing are gifted it
what we dont have we dream of
what we can achieve we strive for
we reach as far out as we can till we fall
we try to obtain what seems impossible
but it is possible
trust you can reach
stretch out over all the doubt you had
and obtain
If I’m getting involved,
Give me a reason to care.

I can help with matters
Pertaining to your mind,
But I am not so kind
All of the time.
I’m not the nicest man alive, but I assure you that it’s unintentional. Sensitivity isn’t my forté (I think that’s the accent placement).

          i go
              you go.

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.
God sees everything
we see
God hears everything
we hear
God smells everything
we smell
God tastes everything
we taste
God touches everything
we touch
God feels everything
we feel
God knows everything
we know
God is everything
we are
Dunno if I'm the first to write this but I didn't copy anyone. I often get the feeling I've written someone else's poem without knowing it.
Siti Asmida
Today I do nothing but look at him
Today I do nothing but thinking
Today I do nothing but feel it
Today I do nothing but..
with my bare hands
i can build
for you
the heavens

i will ask from you
nothing in return

except one thing
your chilled remembrance
soothes my charred indian burns
from love neglected.
Anmol Mago
"I don't understand your poems"
she told me so often

[and yet
in each
of my verses
there is
so much
more of her
and so
little of me]
Dedicated to (you)

sometimes the ones you try and forget, are the ones that matter the most
Love's only weakness
Is also its greatest strength:
It defies reason

My thoughts on Valentine’s Day
Charity Bascombe
I shutter at the idea
Really, it makes me,
my knees
Click, an ugly

Thing, lurks in
The valleys And
Hills of my brain
Jealousy writhes
Unplug from the
World, click
Cell phones
It’s nice to Believe
Nothing is Happening.

the pictures
of her
may have been
still photos
they always
moved me
They will tell you
All poetry has been written
There is nothing new
Under the moon
But let me tell you
They don’t know you
You are as unique
As the DNA that exists
Within your frame
The ripples on your thumbprint
No one ever had the same.


You have something to say
Say it proudly
Say it boldly
Never let them scold you.

Never let them make you go away.
I love it when someone tells me to keep writing. You should keep writing too!
