"You can only be smaller
than your ego is large."
That's what they all meant
when they said: "be modest."
False claim.
Please see my page for part two.

I know my face is feminine
I know everyone 'knows' I'm a girl
I know in this confusing christian society
You have to keep to the binary

And so I don't expect them
To look at me
And say "He"

But just once
Maybe they'll hesitate
Before saying "She"
That could be enough
Cranberries cry
And wait to be gone
From the world
I wait
To smile again
Sarah Synk
Smiling seems so right,
But sometimes,
Smiling seems so wrong.
Sadness seems so right to get rid of, if we could,
But it's impossible to get rid of all the sadness we have...
Seeping through our brains,
It makes us go insane.
Smiling seems so right,
Sometimes smiling seems so wrong,
And sometimes we want to remain emotionless.
~What do you see about someone's smile?~
cs wondering
you’re awake
when I’m asleep

you’re asleep
when I’m awake

slowly but pretty surely
we fall into a pattern
called ‘familiarity’
im in my bed
instead of yours
and theres no one to blame except your heart not feeling the same

all the things that you said
it felt like you meant
so i packed all my bags, took my broken heart back and i left
Chaos in my mind

                 Spirals on repeat

They left me behind

                  Blisters on my feet

I’m lost and I’m blind

                   Empty and Complete  

I try to chase my thoughts

                    But they end up chasing me

Rianne, our love is one
Sweetest Rianne, bright as the sun

I know you love me
Deep in your heart

So tell me you love me
When we're apart

Rianne, our love is one
Sweetest Rianne, queen of the sun

Tell me you love me
Deep in your heart

I know you love me
When we're apart

Cosmic seas are in our eyes
Poetry runs through our veins
Mystery swims in our hearts

I love you
Lost in the sea of life
I'm tired let me rest a while
What do you mean "The world's now ending"
It has been ending since a long long time
Things are spiralling out of control
My life so lost...,..,.

A cycle of pain and rot

Failures failures failures

Dead lover
I bleed through words,
From the cuts given by the society.

I want to escape and fly like birds,
With a hope, it all ends my agony.
Jack R Fehlmann
In the fall,

All is first one way

To turn, dry out

Destined to the breeze

Cold down from that

Introspective hell
Of knowing not matching my
Self appraisal
They are like commandos these sheep
rolling over the cattle grid
I don't know why they do it
there is nothing on the other side of the road

No greener pastures
no future here in these lands
for there are sheep here
with their rams and lambs

Come back if you can
but I think it's too late. I don't kid
never I think you will roll
back over the cattle grid

By Christos Andreas Kourtis aka NeonSolaris
i still look at the recipes you wrote about me.
you told me that baking requires trust—
maybe that's why my macarons burnt.

you were the most sobering experience.
sitting under the rosy sun
trying to escape the problems i cant outrun
waiting for the days to pass
people waiting for me to fall and crash
and i'm getting pretty close
underneath this sunlit rose

he held my mouth "don't make a sound"
but I'm so loud
on ****** ground
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

No matter who you are
You have my deepest respect!

Vanity but the computer is not correct
455 likes and loves
what is to trust
is is to entrust
your soul to someone
is it to become from one
to two
come i'll give you a beautiful view
of my abandoned heart
since i trust you
i hope you to won't break me apart
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
The knots know no reason
They come and go
Loosened or tightened
At will or not
They know no reason
For their being
And existence
U and I were both vulnerable.
the reason why are hearts remain broken and can't find a cure.
Grace Summers
It hurts worse than hell some days;
Some days it's rosier than flowers itself...
Fighting on, living through the highs and lows, taking everything in my stride continuing to breathe even as I fight for breath...
nebulous galaxies
                          spiraling forth
stars collecting
                          in clusters              lost
               constellations           in
                             ­         space
duly                        ­                     revolving,
     with                       the Sun  
                    and                           the Moon
                      in the interstellar

I don't know why ,


Sometimes it feels good to see you in my inbox .
New series
allowed to admit
these letters
are losing meaning
some days
i don't want to be me

some days i don't want
to be a person
there was a lonely mouse he moved in with me
somewhere he could live with some company
he lived in the corner in his little hole
happy and content  and such a friendly soul.

i gave him bits of cheese he could nibble on
he would chew away till all the cheese had gone
such a lovely chap he had a friend in me
somewhere he could live and had company
flicker in the party's fairy lights
padded feet fumble on the wooden porch planks
stars shine in the leave-shaped ruddy strokes
A rose-leaf complexion peers over
the sugar dusted tree tops
I didn't expect to find you.
I didn't expect to share so much.
I didn't expect to like you.
I was hesitant at first
but of course
I gave in.
It was my own fault that I opened up
knowing full and well you would leave too
just like the rest.
You said you weren't like everyone else
and you were right.
You're not like everyone else
you're you.
and you broke me.
You took the pieces of me
you promised you'd repair.
You're not like everyone else
you're worse.
Maria Etre
Imagine if rain fall
made sound
when it hit the surface
the world
would sound so serene
Varsha K

They look at you,
They don't see you
They laugh at you,
They don't laugh with you.

They check out your clothes,
They never check up on you.

It's a herd of million faces
Saying same words in different voices.
you write a lot about love
without wanting to say it
out loud
by maddy
I'll never know why you did what you did.
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
Zeeyerh Adams
The way you embrace me,
Embrace all my flaws,
It makes me see,
How like a broken bird I've become.

The way you kiss me,
Like a sailors wish,
Stuck in the eye of storm.
It makes me a criminal,
Fraudulent in the pleasures I take.
perhaps I talk too much to the moon
and don’t listen enough to the universe

for I long for a love
too extraterrestrial
to ever find on this planet

perhaps a poet’s true fate
lies in solitude

for we yearn for connection
too shakespearean
to ever survive this modern day
I turn 21 on Saturday but feel around 70 if i’m honest.
7 days it's been
since i last saw you
i haven't really written in 7 days
A poem every day
I have not been on for a while .
I have a crushed disc pressing against my spine.
Once that is taken care of I shall return.
The here and now
A place in time
The world feels so soft
and open

Fulfilling my wish
A three part kiss
where time stands still
and I seize the moment

On the brink of lust
With each healing touch
And suddenly the world
appears less broken

The here and now
A place in time
Our soft worlds collided
and wide open

I know some people
like to pour salt in the wound
but I'd never met anyone
who'd so carefully cut open old scars
just to clean them with saline
and delight so wildly in my pain
before you
adam, from the bottom of my heart, go to hell.
