Have you ever felt
you loved someone that
you hated the person?

Have you ever felt
you knew everything that
you knew nothing?

Have you ever felt
the overwhelming happiness and grace that
you manifested signs of sadness?

Have you ever felt
the burning heart inside
though you are soaked outside?

Feeling feelings,
i do not fully understand
what they are
but they color the blank sheet of life –
David P Carroll
You come into my heart

And our hearts softly beat

Together as the wind blows

Our hearts beat together

Feeling true love as the sound

Of love Beating together

Our hearts smiling forever

As you touch me, I Softly touch you, We smile and embrace love

Our love together as our hearts smile together beating forever

In true love.....
Life is full of crossroads,
I am standing at one now,

What is buried so deep inside
A memory so entwined
many lines and differing angles
The same frame can be seen
Differently with different lens
Different outcome for every scene
Can alter all the things
And I would not remain
as the person I am
Travis Green
I am a poet in the night
I am full of thoughts and
endless equations, whirling
waves and towering mountains.
I am a ship of iridescent nations.
I am transcendence.
i dreamed about you again
we were cuddling
and i fell asleep with you in my arms
woke up next to you
and smiled
we lived together
we were happy
but then i woke up...
and you weren't there
but what was there was adorable messages from you
making me smile
i'm head over heels for you cutie pie
Sophia Li
remind me,
why did i start
What does it take,
To grow back
Your soul?

To feel a sound
Deep within
Your bones,
To hum a tune,
Arisen from
A place laid
To rest,
A place left
Only to remember
What it’s like
To be
You completely,
To feel what
It’s like to
Be closer,
To whole.
you aren't alright
stop lying to me
and everyone else
around you

I see the tears you left on your pillow
from crying yourself to sleep
I see the pain behind your eyes
you want so desperately to hide

I can hear the screams
you keep inside your head
I can feel the emotions
storming away in your mind

I understand what you are going through
I go through it myself
I need you to talk to me
because I need to help you

you want to lose your mind
and I can't let you
because losing your mind
isn't the answer, I promise.

I’m bright on the outside, full of all hues.
I’m on the downside, while I laugh with you.
This isn’t earth shattering news, though.
I am not see-through - I am closed off.
An opaque paper doll, that’s been worn some.
A moon that is drunk with the truth talk.
A sun that shines blue everyday, y’all.
And I don’t know what else to say, y’all.
Not all depressed cut,
Not all sad shed tears,
Not all strong fight,
Not all monsters roar,
Not all young are innocent.
Some just work harder to maintain a mask.
We are here,
And you have reason to fear,
We are the best liars,
We can manipulate the greatest con artist without batting a single eyelash.
Watch out we are coming.
This is a dark and serious prom but that didn't change the fact that In was tempted to put "and we're *****" instead of " And you have reason to fear" ****
a hug from you is so real
makes me feel as strong as steel
cats eyes staring at me
makes me feel free
„you were supposed to call me tonight”
I tell myself that as if everything was all right

i'm only honest when it rains
and all the rain did was help
you slip through my fingers
you're still jumping in puddles.
With time the distance grew.

Prepared myself for weeks.

Like ripping of a band-aid, it had to be done.

Every breath, every hit on that button felt like a stab to my heart.

I heard your laugh, saw your smile in my head for one last time.

I close my eyes and remember.

I need you to be gone.

Fully and completely.

Keeping you means losing me.

For the last time..

All of these hate that I get from people
Disinterested in me, I get it.
All of these lies that are trapped inside my mind
I don’t need an example, no really I’m fine.
The tragedy is
there's a prison in my mind
all the thoughts that lurk there
are ones I wish were never mine
they etch into my heart
the scars I wear so bright

They whisper wicked stories
of things that never happened
or maybe things that did
things that shouldn't create ripples
in the current in my life
but here I lay in bed
stuck awake at night
eyes cutting blankly
through the nothingness of my cold and dark bedroom
Eloise Rose
I opened up to you,
about my struggles, my destructive behaviors
and you said just don't do it.
If i could "just not do it",
I wouldn't have any secrets to be sharing with you.
I wouldn't be so depressed that I needed you.
I don't feel special,
I'm not unique.
I want to cry
but I can't even speak.
My hands reach out,
but they cannot hold
a single thing
but the bitter cold.
Everything's frozen,
I feel lost.
Even my tears
have turned to frost.
When I cut my waist
it bleeds black.
I'm so deeply gone
there's no way back.
This is goodbye
Hadrian Veska
Away and hidden
So fearful are we of our creator
That we deny His very existence

Further down and away
We delve to prove He cannot be
That we are all that is
And that we alone control all fate

Inward and outward we grow aware
The cosmos fills our minds
On every perceivable scale

In our great effort to undo our creator
We find Him both in heaven and on earth
In the pure order of creation we see Him
Witness Him and despair

As they did in that ancient garden
Hiding in their nakedness so many ages ago
Witness Him and despair

For His wrath is close at hand
Olivia Lost
I do not want to group every person of your gender in the same bucket but MAN you make me feel the need to.
How can I not when every MAN that promised me loyalty ends up delivering mind games and heart break.
Why do MEN tell me things that make my thighs tingle well you have your head between hers.
When will I stop letting MEN play me like an old video game just for the possibility they will be the "one".
Again and again I fall for men that are falling for too many other women.
The calf needs to suckle milk.
The farmer wants to sell it.
The farmer has a sharp knife
and a captive bolt gun.
The calf has wobbly legs
and wide set innocent eyes.
We get the milk
and the calf gets slaughtered.

It has taken me a while to realize
that ungranted requests are often
answered prayer.
The truth is that I liked you from the start...
The truth is ,I can't imagine us apart..
The truth is ,it feels like someday I'll be left with a broken heart..
The truth is that I've always wanted to tell you...
The truth is that if I do,will u still see me the same?
The truth is ,I keep wondering if I leave ,will u still remember my name...
The only lie I told, is that I like you...
Cause The truth is that I'm deeply in love with you ...
There was a baby girl in her bassinet
Her mother had not awoken yet
Sometime in the night
Death passed over, a terrible flight

Death passed over, a terrible flight

Her soul did take wing
Her tent, left behind
When mom, she did awake
Her heart trembled a horrible quake

A horrible quake

For in the cocoon of safety
In her swaddling was wrapped
The reaper did visit, silently
Quietly, quietly he swung his scythe

He swung his scythe

To the home was I summoned
To investigate for foul play
Four weeks old with wild hair
Laying as still as she did lay

Laying still as she did lay

A mother gently weeping for her loss
My mouth shut with her grief
Normal by all sight, no foul play
My mouth shut with her grief

The reaper is a thief

Of this I could not partake
Never get involved, the burden don’t take
But the mother’s grief
It was too hard to ignore

It was too hard to ignore

I picked up the baby to check thoroughly
A beautiful girl, her tiny face, soft and free
Rigor had visited, she felt so cold
As if her sleep was still nearby

As if her sleep was still nearby

In my heart I wanted to cry
Why did the little one die?
Some things make no sense
It wasn’t natural, but it was

No, it wasn’t natural, but it was

The girl I could never have
A girl to raise of my own
Her body quiet and stiff
My eyes did tear, my nose did sniff

My eyes did tear, my nose did sniff

The smell of death started setting in
The blood does spoil with an odor
What can you do?  What can you say?
I held the baby, I did cry, I did pray

I held the baby, I did cry, I did pray

Her soul escaped in a flutter
During the night it took flight
Was she watching? This I thought
Under the altar of the martyred lay she

Under the altar of the martyred lay she
I'm tired of trying
i just don't think
I can do this anymore
with all of my pain
tell me what's keeping me out the door
i just don't know anymore

if its too much too handle
my heart breaks everyday
and its always the same'
tell me why nothing ever changes
for me

living life in this sick reality
i want to wake up
but this isn't a dream

its a nightmare
and im a prisoner
locked and cant find the key

its the one thing
thats keeping me from leaving
Cherry Blossoms Fall
Like snow, they drift so gently
Spring is joining us.
The scent is overwhelming,
I enjoy it so,
Imagine the petals, falling,
Over your face,
The scent of spring is here today.

your           life

Dan Beyer
So much energy
declines belonging
trapped inside this
bundle of live wires
like the pulse of streetlights
in the glow of my window
driving down the highway
a feeling I look to outrun
Chante Coutinho
I always felt there was something
Missing from my heart
A gap found within my being
My soul with a missing part

I wonder if it will become complete
Or if a part of me is destined to be lost
Did a thief come to steal it at night
And sell it at no cost

Used to being incomplete
And knowing no other way
I eventually stopped searching
And felt that I would be okay

But silently I heard
The lost piece sing
Crying out my name
In the depths of the wind
I see you here and there, but couldn’t feel your touch anywhere.
I miss u da
Zoe G
If the sand meets the sea
will you cry softly with me
If the ocean stays blue
will you remain loyal and true
If the sky floats above
will you forever be my love
even on my worst days
no –
i'd fall with you
coursing headfirst and abreast through the clouds
with graceful reckless abandon
we'll live a supersonic life
& go out with a boom
like a pair of

Рубашка в бархатном багре
распахнула неуклюжие двери и обнажила ад
Разве мог отказаться от легкой подагры,
стискивающей мой побитый циферблат

Октавы переходят в звуковые волны
там, где расцветают колыбели сирени

Дифференцировать функцию моей тени
у пробуждения неистового жара и мигрени
Ты властный

А интегрировать выражение скул твоего лица
средь георгиновых клубней прибрежного городка
Я не математик

И камуфлировать все пятна на моих ботинках
и затемнённым скрыться в весенних долинках

Фуфайка с сигнатурой "вал"
преследует мой взор и размывает путь обманом
И разве мог я разглядеть колючих ёжиков в тумане,
когда мне очерки строчили, что он неберущийся

В тех точках, где эти два процесса невзаимны,
мы связаны, но не взаимно
Обратной связи жду, как раскаленная сталь,
но, падая хрупкой константой, не дожидаюсь, жаль.
i dream often
that i cannot move
or move s l o w l y

We were not meant to be friends
But somehow we became
But becoming is not enough
And we have failed to maintain
My heart pounds eagerly
Awaiting the outcomes of the morrow
What is awaiting me
Love, hatred or sorrow?

Fear and anticipation
All wrapped into one
Securely tied with a ribbon
Now we wait for the sun

Marching on to the time
Allowing fate to lead the way
My heartbeat is all I can hear
Let's see what's awaiting me today.

You're more beautiful
And more outstanding and bright
Than you'll ever know.

You're worth more than you'll know. Just a reminder.
Ariana Bagley
I love him
I tell myself
I know that
We will be together forever
I don’t believe that
We could be separated
My thoughts tell me that
He’s the love of my life
Sometimes my heart lies and says
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.
