Your life is a book
Each chapter of your life holds moments
You are a part of your book and even of others.
Don't spoil the chapters of other's book
Don't try to be a villian
Pay attention! Your life is being recorded.
Spread love

Neither matter
Nor mind
Dominated me
In lifetime
I am of my kind
I am aware?
I am mind!
I am unaware?
I am matter!
Mind, matter
I shatter
I am consciousness
Understand it better
A few would understand
It's a different matter!

A masked man stands before me.
His skin painted by darkness,
his eyes covered by jewels.
He offers his hand.
A sorcerer of mortal time,
we descend into the caverns of his mind.
Never removing his mask, never looking back,
I fall into his tracks.
Guiding us along hidden paths,
he tells me to close my eyes.
Blindly,        I follow.
I feel a heat begin to surround me;
the fire of the candles that guide us
fill my being.
I reach out for the masked man,
but my hands feel a new face before me.
I open my eyes and awaken into him.

How would you know when is enough?
-When it's already too much.

Then when is too much too much?
-When you've given too much, yet your too much isn't enough. It wouldn't be enough. So enough.

-‎Or maybe when you've given too much. You've been too much you've exceeded enough. So enough.

Either way, learn when to tell yourself ENOUGH.
ENOUGH.
ENOUGH.
ENOUGH.
ENOUGH.
ENOUGH.

You lived a life as have I,
Our journeys merged, I wonder why?

Heartbreak, sorrow and regret
seem to have faded every time we've met.
Words of kindness I shine on you,
Your smile blossoms, mine does too.
A burning in my chest, the desire so strong,
I crave your touch, your lips all night long.

About what's next my mind is taken,
Trusting, hoping, we won't be shaken.

I’m damaged goods
And I don’t know why
They say that I’m great
Their eyes tell me lies

I’m broken, I’m beaten
A victim of abuse
I’m angry, heartbroken
Tired of all the misuse

It’s a matter of time
Before the glue runs dry
The pieces now scattered
And the last of me dies

Tear me open
Break me down
Lie with confidence
Wear me out

Tell me a story I have not heard
Bet I'll wither with every word
Drag it out, don't let me know
If it's not obvious, I'll let it go
Oh it's so easy, to fool me
Someday I'll be overthrown

Convince me that I'm insane
Something's gone wrong with my brain
Fill me up with hormones
While you stay just the same
But that never even happened anyway...

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!

I do not wish to be blind anymore
Want to face fear
Closed eyes are sore
More worn than they appear

My vision broken
Said my piece
Words were spoken
Feel anger cease

Madness profoundly lifted higher
Joyful instead of sad
Swept up in happy fire
Drying teardrops had

Dammed emotions
Barrier built with sticks
Keeping in oceans
So waters won't mix

But it is time for it to fall
I am not ready to tear it down
Catch pieces of wall
Released to hit ground

Mourning loss of armour strong
Vulnerable
Naked
And bare
Warmth I needed all along
Love
It was always there
Feedback?

Your solitude;
Is about the
only souvenir
I can claim,
From our one way voyage.

Roses,
Highlight my bruises.
Sunflowers,
Illuminate Hidden confessions;

Softly,
Like petals;
I roam from wonder to another
Yet Swiftly
I vanish.

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



Hay
No matter who you are
You have my deepest respect!

Vanity
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.
:)
In our Lifetime
They come and go
You'll never see them coming
You never expect them go

Sometimes they come with a lesson
But sometimes with a heartbreak
One thing we should know early on
It's never wrong to prioritize one's sake
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
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

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?

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

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.

Mary Anne Norton
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
First
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
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 barricades may melt away
but true love shouldn't swim
in the path meant for hate.

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

I look at your fences
and your flimsy nests.
The wind comes in and breaks them.
You rebuild, the bear comes in and breaks them.
Yet you still rebuild.
Why do you do that when you know it's pointless?

your name is
forbidden in
my mouth
or in my heart
because when
i think about
you;

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

Him
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

Do I talk too much?
I'm sorry... You're the first person to ever listen...
Knicknacks
All over my place
Late cinema tickets
Dinner face to face
A figure at the window
Pair tea mugs
Under the blankets
Warm awkward hugs
The hair drier
At six am


I'm finally happy

With you,
I am.
(It was a hair drier so ... early driving me nuts, but i realised i wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. Well, you probably know how it goes)

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 stupid –”
I know it sounds stupid,
It’s pathetically foolish
And seems like *******.
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.

They say when one door closes another opens.
100 more have opened in its place
This don't will never shut.

I drank of his blood
Swam in his tears

I watched the flames surround me
And come out the other side

I waged war with the demons within
I found peace in His grace
I found love in a ravens embrace

Hold a gun to my head
And I have lived 1000 more times
They say when one door closes another opens.

The next door is open
Time now for the next greatest adventure

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
