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!

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
Meeting you was an accident,
You are the scar
I never want to heal from.
The light tail of the tail light leaves me blue in the dark hues
… when it carries away what I belong to…
Unfolding the tar-black sky of asphalt, the longest arm of missing you…
My body is now the distance between us, big and empty,
The bigger, the emptier, thinner than air…
As time piles up, my ladders turn into pointless meters
Measuring the ratio of nothing in everything
And then I met you…
A happiness like I have never known…
My knees went weak when we first touched…
My heart shouted out when I held your hand…
The smile in your eyes brought warmth into my heart…
I am complete now…
Since I met you…

you never really
cared for
the things that
she enjoyed.
you would rather
see the woman
you ‘loved’
suffer from false
than be

- she still isn’t happy and you’re gone
she threw the necklace
you bought her
out of her window
as she drove
past the all familiar
waterfall she parked
next to,
contemplating driving off.

- she didn’t die there, you did.
if you ever find happiness,
never let it go;
because most people,
like me,
may never even catch a glimpse of it
without the help of a little pill.
i would die for you,
but you wouldn't even notice
until i was six feet under.
everyday she spent loving you,
she lost a little bit of herself.
every time that she said your name,
a piece of her heart broke off.
everyday she laid her eyes upon you,
she had to hold back tears.
every time she said 'i love you',
she hated herself more and more for
