I see my love in vivid colors
starched white rose with drops of blue
petals painted a tertiary number
I fall asleep and dream of you
Vin DeStefano
A contemporary peculiarity.
Youth tend not to care of me,
a virtue rather scarce to see.
Heart with love,
in love in lust
in love with lust
I'd escape, its just ..
.. If I could learn to trust.
Please help my heart,
For I'm torn apart.
I'd escape, its only ..
.. If people hadn't told me
What love had meant -
a concept bent -
time now -
Ask for God's forgiveness and stop making excuses. :)
Music of the wind
Drum of my own heartbeat
Songs  of the chirping birds
Orchestra of the leave’s rustling
Humming of my breath
Caressing  Mother Earth
Warmth of father sun
Blanketed by soft cloud
Here I come to my solitude
Where the silence speaks
To me always aloud

Paper faces and silicone smiles-
Where’d you get that mask, little girl?
Looks an awful lot like

He loves me
But he’s not in love with me
And it’s breaking my heart
But how can I explain?
You don’t look at me the same anymore
F A Pacelli
we live in a world 
of ones and zeros 
of science and theory
but only love will guide us
through darkness and pain
for its mystery is illuminating
Pragya Singh
I cannot explain what love is
But can anyone say why?
The star twinkle at night
And there is magic in the sky
Or why river rushes to meet the sea
No more I can explain
Just becoz you mean too much to me
Your my life and my happiness too
I just know I do....
I wonder..
am I too soft?
or is the world too hard
The flower in the garden
will one day be gone
it may be beautiful now
but it wont last that long
So like a flower one day we will see
In the end, How broken we would be
loneliness, an old friend
is knocking on my door again
and I’m trying so hard not to let him in
John F McCullagh
The earth eclipsed the moon tonight
and turned that orb blood red.
The Sox just swept the Cardinals
and Bambino's curse lies dead.

Old Da had rooted Eighty years
but never saw them win.
Of Buckner, back in Eighty Six,
he never spoke again.

So first I went and bought us beers,
I got Sam Adams best.
Then I crept into the graveyard
where old Da takes his rest.

I poured his drink upon the grave
and raised my bottle high.
We beat the hated Yankees, Da!
Next year our banner flies!

All around me here and there
were Red Sox fans, my peers-
All celebrating with their Dads
and wiping back the tears.
It is the night of 10/27/2004 and there is a strange scene unfolding in the graveyards around Boston
Verde the solace seethes
jealous of the tumbling wind
tossing bountiful waves about
in careless patulous splendor.

Out of the burning light
tendrils warm anfractuous trails
placid to the touch
alive beneath leathery veins.

Their tenuous links splinter
unaware of their impending plight.
The nights will give way
to mornings of gold and dying.

But I know--
after it all
new life will bring solace
the company she longs for
--once more.
Inspired by: the moments of contentment I felt when standing near our old madrone tree, as a child, before when I felt alone, and after when I was surrounded by love.

Solace isn't being alone
only that we've experienced it
and understand
there is more life
that we haven't met.

My mouth waters
when I look up to see
those tiny golden clouds
looking down on me
from oily amber skies
like little cheese puffs
like fresh made  golden fries
"Yes!" Some teardrop moon reminds me,
"Summer's always on her way."
The Masked Sleepyz
Sympathetic empathas saying words,
That are read from a script,
No one knew how to write,
It's early and cars,
Driving to,
Another paid bill,
Or whatever Thomas said,
Expierences fulfilled by fuel,
Maybe they aren't driving,
Or drinking,
might just be,
making babies in the,
Or whatever Keats said,
Distantly dancing,
To kindergarteners and,
cancer patients,
Just another Thursday,
With mystic music,
Lofting around,
The empty dance halls,
Falling up,
With Christopher Robbins,
To the stars,
The bus is on time
Or whatever Dylan said.
tangled up on a hammock
beach hair, golden skin.
a haiku
I have this one playlist
It contains all the music
That reminds me of good memories

So that whenever I feel alone
I play it

I don’t feel alone anymore
I still remember the last time I saw you
and I remember the day I realized
it was really over

but life goes on, as things do
however, I still find myself
thinking about you

I’ve seen other people,
I’m sure you have too
but still, I really, truly do
myss you
Sona Lachina
A single birch leaf
Floated to my sill

It made my summer
Knees wobble as it sang
September's denouement --

It laughed at me so
Mired in time and

Don't worry
Little one,
You will know
My secret
One day --
Neon lights
Bleed my eyes
I've lost sight
I can only rhyme
Whispering voices
Long day gone
Residue of life
Where did we go wrong
Giving we gave
Taken we took
Sinners and savior
All in one book
And so we read on
There's no end
To our songs!
Traveler Tim
...I have left this ****** nightmare
In my wake but out of sight
All I want is deviation by design

Out of all the past confusion
Out of all the common spite
Just tell me I am yours 'cause you are mine

Song #3
Is there no greed in Heaven?
Like the greed we have here on Earth.
Is there no lust in Heaven ?
Like the **** case we have on Earth.
Is there no strength differences  in Heaven?
Like the gender inequality we have on Earth?
Is there no violence in Heaven?
Like the manslaughters we have on Earth?

Is there no sins in Heaven?
Or is there no Heaven?
Yet i do believe in God
Never seen God
But i put my faith into God.
If God lives in Heaven
And God created us
I believe we all are from Heaven.
So ,
Is there no sins in Heaven?
Enigma GD
My smiles not real
Don't be fooled
Not like my heart was
Today I recall every time we spoke
and every time we didn't
and I tell myself I knew you
but I didn't

what I knew is that you were unstoppable
a force of integrity and passion
golden and swift
and I wish I knew you
when I had the chance to.
I don't know what happened
Until you and I talk like
We were just neighbours
Saying 'hey' and just normal Conversations.

One answer per one question.
That's all it is.
I miss the way you smile at me
Like I am the only joke
You have ever seen
And now all of that has changed,
No more 'goodnight' and not even a Goodbye at the ending scene.

Just so you know,
Even if your life turn out to be hard,
I will always stay there,
Right there deep in your heart.
I don't Drink
Not because I don't want to
I don't Drink
Not because I don't need to

I don't drink because of you
because of what you did
because I swore that I would never be like you
because you were the monster I feared

I don't drink, because I fear
The monster in you, will become the monster in me
and that monster is something I never want to be.
What if
You have been fighting
A losing battle
All along
What if
The silence
Within you
Is only
The calm
Before the strom
It is going to be a fight
You just cannot

my biggest fear.
Erin Reed
a fool
i am
  to convince myself
  that the words that flowed
  like the sound of a perfect melody
  from your lips,
  were the words
  of an honest man.
isn't it strange,
that the most
things in this world
are not what we do not understand,
but the things that we do?
They prayed to porcelain gods
In pursuit of imitation beauty;
Blithely sacrificing their youth
At the altar of fraudulent immortality

On hardened knees, they offered pleas
And the remains of their unconstraint;
They worshipped at magazines,
The gospel of each shiny, shallow saint

They believed in their inadequacy,
Failing scales, they purged their dreams;
Feeding hollows with empty fantasies;
Less is more is not always as it seems
To all the lost girls, I hope you've found your way
As the Earth rotates
We all live on this planet
Our Earth needs some help

Change things that make a difference
Changes that change opinions
Change that can be successful

We can all help out
Help others to encourage
Stimulate the change

Are you concerned with our mother?
Kurt Philip Behm
Gripping the meteor,
both hands for dear life

Expelling, compelling,
less heat and more light

Afraid to let go,
knowing what it will mean

My pen to go dry
—my heart not to bleed

(Villanova Pennsylvania: April, 2017)
At last,
I feel at ease
There goes the leash

I am far too young to be bound,
far too old to stay around
Clueless of what there'll be
outside, I might as well feel lonely
I need no freedom
For in this cage,
I feel free

And at last,
I feel at ease
I made this poem half asleep
That's why it makes no sense hahaha
Gone Lifting
I read someone on here just a minute ago
He brought back some strong memories
I feel compelled to write this

Jesus is Lord and God is Almighty
Two different times in my life
God spared me from being killed by men
Once he gave me victory over them
Not because I was better than them
But, because I trusted in Him
He made a way for me
the other time when I was in the Marines

This can be a dangerous and nasty world
And you can be gone this
I wanted to write this to remind people
To trust in Jesus, you may not wake
up tomorrow.
We are not guaranteed another day
It is very frightening when someone is in front of you with the intent to **** you right then and there. I hope I never experience that ever again. The Good Lord willing.
Ashly Kocher
Growing her wings as she makes mistakes and learns that failure is as beautiful as the day she was brought into this world..
So am I loyal

for still loving you
I’m scared as f*ck
to want you.

But here
I am,

Still wanting you
we could crash
we would burn
shaking wings
slight turbulence
metal monster
flying above
jittering nerves
gnawing anxiety
Time for me to head out to Washington! I've never flown before and I am downright terrified. Hopefully I won't die tragically today.
The Awkward Bard
Golden is silence
For words coarse and fine, still bear
Hard truths, or sweet lies.
that relation
can be grown
through love
and emotion
they govern
and depends upon
individuals intention

Next to your footsteps
I feel like an outsider
An unwanted guest
Ashlee Reyes
last night your kisses
made the moon brighter
we'd smoked before
but inhaling you
made me higher.

i went back to my empty apartment
dreamed of you real sweet

but i know better
than to text you
and wish you the
most decent day

i wanna believe in the concept
"ask and it is given"
but i know better
than to expect you to stay
