You take everything good in me
Heart that I polish for you
Take step after step away from me
Towards a door
Hoping you won't go through

I know I may not ever get you back
Pain has gone and opened my eyes
I still look for you everywhere
Find nothing
To no surprise

First they say
that you are too young
and not to rush
you have time
its too early

And then they say
that you are too old
and not to try
its not worth the effort anymore
its too late

In between their seasons, there is nothing.
There is nothing, except lies.

Don't listen
Don't settle
You know
They don't

Don't listen
Don't settle
They are afraid
You are not

Go.

give me a smile, give me a grin,
give me a happy meaning, even in the end
as i can't help but die inside
even if you stare at me,
i won't care
as i feel fine,
i feel great,
can't keep me down
i'm gonna raise the stakes,
so just follow me,
i'm gonna shine, brighter than the stars
if i can stand, then i can fall,
but if i fall i'm gonna shine bright still
as you can't hit me
i'm gonna shine like a star
remember when i was positive, yeah i dont. this is a draft from frickin 2018 its been 2 years since ive seen it

If you don't a support the left
You're a fascist
And if you are critical of the right
You're anti-national

So I guess, I'm a bit of both
The current political state in the nation where you can't exhist without being wrong

Blindly looking for love outside yourself
feeling broken and in chains
wearing masks for different times
going blindly by, feeling empty inside

feel the pain, let her lead you
feel her pull you deep inside
sit alone and feel her embrace
cry alone, let it all go, you've met yourself

all the love that lives inside you
the love you others give
feel it make you whole
let it save you

"Don't burst blood vessels"
says my enigmatic friend
"Stay cool, man, stay cool"
This Haiku was written as a response to the weekly 'Obheal' Five-Word poetry challenge (January 14th). This last week's words were: friend enigma blood burst cool
The day  has now gone here is the night
It's twelve o'clock all lights gone out
Not a single soul no one insight
We look out the window no one about.

Eyes are weary we are fighting sleep
Time to clime up that wooden hill
Waiting for us is the bed and sheets
Tired and drowsy sleep we will.

The evenings are colder
The frost here again
But we are much older
And our health's not the same

So as we head to that slumber land
And we dream our cares away
We pull up the blankets with our hands
And say goodnight to the day.
These cold nights a nice warm bed is welcoming.

I picked up
       Silence
And placed her
       In a bag of noise


I almost forgot
       About her


Till I heard her crying

Sometimes you will
meet someone with
whom you instantly
connect

Your souls appear
to have known
each other for
some time

The world becomes
magical and you
feel like you are
walking on clouds

There is not one
ounce of rain
in sight
The sun is glowing
in your heart

You've grown
wings overnight
and everything in
that moment ...
seems possible

Hey, you... Me?... Yes, you... Listen...
You are wonderfully and uniquely made
You are beautiful just the way you are
No one can be you better than you
Don't lose you trying to be anyone else
Be kind, loving and at peace with yourself
There's more to you that you ain't know yet
Don't let the world define who you're supposed to be
Don't let the outside noise drown your voice
Don't let the lies from the world or
your head overshadow your truth
There is beauty and glory within you
This is the you that I want you to see.

Cold and lonely silence
of early morn
Screams of rockets wake

No impact is heard so,
i must be wrong
Night gets darker still
no hope or trace of dawn

I wonder what it feels like
To hold the world in your hands
And let it slip from your grasp

Suppose I'll never know
This is my 500th poem here.
I really am a hopeless romantic.

do they make you swoon?
do you sigh at the sight of them?
do you think of them often?
are they a part of your prayers?
do you like their smile?
would you want to see their smile?
do you stare at their eyes?
is your worth not being judged?
does it make you think of other people to replace?
do they make you smile?
do they reciprocate what you feel?
are they open-minded?
do they make you love love?
do they make you feel different?


and lastly,
they dont make you question about love.

i believed his deceitful manner
his charisma, it was alluring
I think most people take this as an s.o. but it could be anyone who stopped loving you a friend, a parent to just deceive you to get what they want from you. I also thought of the devil as I wrote this, he deceives you and feeds you with lies to follow him.

I'm back!
So sorry everyone, the last few weeks have been... a strain on me.
I am still doing my media course and all, but mentally and emotionally,
I was slipping down into a dark place. My sleeping patterns have been messed up, my nerves have been completely out of control, my self-doubt, anxiety and depression drained me so much that I found it really hard to write, so I needed time to gather myself. It was so hard for me to pick up a pen. To do anything. My smiles were hollow and I just felt so lost.

I just wanted to apologise, I didn't mean to worry anyone. I'm truly touched by the out-pour of support for me. I got so many messages asking if I was alright. I can't express how much that warmed my heart. I'm so used to people being angry at me for my silence that it usually scares me to come back. By nature, with everything I've experienced, it's made me more and more of an isolationist. To all of those people, truly, thank you so so much for staying and just being kind to me...
Really. Thank you T-T
And thank you to all my followers, old and new.
245 followers... I can't even... T-T
I'm sorry if I sound like a broken record but thank you.
I'm back now, and I'm feeling better.
It's easier to hold my pen so I will resume spilling my ink.

I'll continue the Masked Bard on Thursday, I'm free the whole day.
I have no idea of my schedule the coming week.
Again, I appreciate everyone one of you.
Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts.
Thank you for staying with someone like me.
With much love,
Lyn ***

It’s alright now
I’m putting myself to bed
A few pills to make me sleep
I’ll calm down
I’ll feel pleasant and safe
My eyelids will become heavy
I’ll start to drift off
Because at least if I sedate myself
I won’t have the energy
To get the knife out
I gotta admit... I really enjoy a sedative...

there was a you and me

i knew you once
and it was nice
silence was comfy
and we didnt have to try

i knew you once

you shared your secrets
and i shared mine

i knew you once
long ago
but where did you go...?
argh, i miss you.

our parts
are
mostly
universal
sure...

our
outsides
are :

"you've seen
one,
you've seen
them all."

which IS
beyond truth.

remember
though,

that's not
what makes
you....
you.

you are
so much
more
than that,
so much more !

unique to you?

it's your soul
that
makes you....
you.

it makes
you
attractive,
it makes
you unattractive.

keep your
soul
beautiful.

feed it love,
feed it caring,
feed it sharing,
feed it
properly and...
people will
watch you
grow,
watch you
glow.

your soul
is not
universal.

your soul
is the
truest you.

To understand
what I'm driving at
you must go beyond

words sentences
paragraphs

and let all

the punctuation
float away
like dandelion seeds

then think
and speak

about the symmetry
of the thing

like say

a leaf

is it a heart

or is it a diamond

and ask yourself
why I'm looking
at you

wanting you

to see

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 too *******.
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.

I tell myself
I know that

I don’t believe that
We could be separated

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.
