Update
Max Apr 18
Sorry haven't been on here for a while. Got no inspiration and tbh I'm not a poet just a lost soul looking for who he is. I'm almost 20 and still not the same.

Ps. Thanks for all the positivity, I got surprised with it today:)

Long time no see
Max May 2020
I rode long enough to be alone.
But sadly not enough to be happy when I'm home.
Maybe I'll explain later

I'm no superman...

Corona
Max Mar 2020
There was a man with Corona,
And he walked through Barcelona.
When he coughed and sneezed
people stared displeased
At that pitiful man with Corona.
Sorry not sorry, bit of a satire towards the fear of a disease that's not that deadly

Ps. If you love this. Please read Edward Lear. He's a genius and brings a lot of nonsense and joy.

Nah
Max Jan 2020
Nah
Citations and quotes,
All this writing I loathe.
Those ****** sources and notations,
Those boring words of personal innovations,
Writers, scientists, philosophers and other titles.
**** people being smart

Gloaming
Max Jan 2020
A universe so black and scarce of light, Might it be that light gleams in the immortality of

Darkness?
I'm trying to return, but
1) Creativity is missing
2) I can't even get to hello poetry.com, like I can't even log in... Is there something wrong? I really find is scary because all my poems are on this site...

Hopefully somebody can tell me what's up.

Cheers!

Provoked
Max Jan 2020
What is happening?
I socialism the strive?

Where is the resistance, the provocation?
Where is the different mind, the politically incorrect thoughts?

I'm a proud conservative, and I miss the different views of perspective.

I miss a real opinion...
Been seeing some changes that I don't agree on, which is fine. Because that's the beauty of freedom.

But I miss a lot of the provocative old mind.
And that not everyone goes with the flow.

I believe everyone should be able to speak their minds, but I'm frightened by the fact that a few people do people do....

I should go
Max Nov 2019
I'm
Slowly walking to the gates of white,
May it be soon, may it be tonight.
May it end my problems,
May it end my fight.

I feel dumb
Max Oct 2019
Altough we say
That we are smart,
We are actually dumb,
And we always will be.

But how beautiful is it, that we can learn our whole life long?
It's something to accept and eventually helps you becoming an even better you.

Hell
Max Oct 2019
I'll pray to the devil,

as I'm living in purgatory.
Burn
Max Oct 2019
As your love fills my woods,
Your heart beats like the heavy raindrops on the street.
Your hair like the movement of the leaves,
Your voice like the whispering of the wind.,
Your eyes, so gray as the calming sky.
Your smell, the reminder of my favourite moment
Your body as a strong tree, so beautiful and magnificent.

You are my autumn,

You bring the most memorable times to me.
Still love you

This and that

What is "this"?

When it's actually "that"?
Abstract but I liked it

My Compass
Max Sep 2019
Where does love go?
Does it go east?
West?
North?
South?
All I know, is it’s going away from my compass
It's an unmagnetic thing in my case

Telling me the truth
Max Sep 2019
I noticed that I always say
"It will be alright"
When things are difficult.

And I never broke that promise.
Just noticed it

Boy on a boat
Max Sep 2019
Apparently I'm a boy on a boat,
With high waves and an angry sea.
And on the lower deck people float.
They have been taken en have been brought back.
With high waves and an angry sea.

But at least I'm your boy on a boat.
Based on a dream of someone special

Globalization
Max Sep 2019
As the worlds gets smaller these days,
The distance grows.

As life is being made easier,
Why do the feelings get harder?

Why is it that when we look at each other,
That the the eyes are not the thing we look at?

What is progression if regression is it's consequence?
Thinking in a negative or realistic way, I can't tell the difference.

Max Sep 2019
As my love for you grows

My past became less important.

Shadows
Max Sep 2019
As the shadows crawl behind me in broad daylight,

I'll haunt them at night.
Better not be that shadow

A path uncharted.
Life's ahead.

Like a car, and I'm looking in it's headlights.

The unknown

Sleepless nights,

The future haunts me
I actually have never thought further than this...

Max Aug 2019
What's a world without hatred,

What's a world without love?
It's both needed to create the happiness and peaks of life

What the future
Max Aug 2019
I finally know why I always have a plan-B,

It's because I'm really terrified Plan-A will fail.
Really scared of the future

Gaining
Max Aug 2019
You lose some,
And
You win some.
Simple and true
Max Aug 2019
I was still thinking about my past,

While she was already talking about the future.
Is there a correct way?

Homesick
Max Jul 2019
Am I homesick?

Or just not able to let the stress and emotions fade.
Oh why do I have to feel this?
Why can't I just relax?
Why is my escape a memory of it all...
Homesickness is killing me, and I never had any trouble with it before...
Any tips?

The story we write ourself.

With the blood of those who tried to change my story.
And I'm gonna get there.

Took a little trip down the garden of Eden

And it had the best fruit I've ever tasted.

True Grit

Time just gets away from us.
Had to quote this amazing sentence from the best ending of one of the best movies I've seen.

Reality unfocused,
Fantasy lingers in my mind.

Royal Flush
Max Jun 2019
To prove
Is to reach.

To defeat
Is to accomplish.

To accept,
Is to be set free.
Mind slips away in the fear of losing a bet against the past.

Night tide
Max Jun 2019
High tides,
Low moon,
Light and water collide.

Foolish eyes
Max Jun 2019
They lied to me.
Some people therefore died for me.
All because of
Your fooling eyes.

My hands are tied,
And there's nothing I have not tried
Oh why do they control me
Your fooling eyes.

My trust became bona fide
My hate so unjustified
Oh why did you enter my mind,
All because of
Your fooling eyes.

I feel so horrified,
Terrified,
And somehow satisfied,
By this continuous thought
of

The eyes of suicide.
*sings happily* I got suicide on my mind.

Autopilot
Max May 2019
My mind on autopilot,
Life just goes on.

But if it were up to me.
I'd put it on pause,
Forever.
Life is useless

I wan't to move to heaven
Max May 2019
I want to be with you,

Even though you're in heaven.
The tempation of joining you is only getting bigger.
I miss you so much.

Shattered words?
Max May 2019
I'm scared
But by what
I don't know.

My mind shattered by the fear of the common,
And attracted by you.
If somebody could define this poem, that would be great.

De onbewezenheid
Max May 2019
Het leven is onbewezen
Niemand voelt het aan
We weten het, maar wanneer zal jij gaan
Het leven is onbewezen

De bevraging van ons bestaan
Leven we door, als onze taak is gedaan?
Of sluit ons lichaam en zullen we vergaan?
Het leven is onbewezen.
Moest wat schrijven, dus deed ik dat.
May 2019 · 250
Stay
Max May 2019
Stay a little longer, just for me.
Don't leave me here, you make me stronger.

You were my buddy, my pal when nobody stood by me in the past hell.

You're going to leave, and I'm scared.
Not because you're gone, but just because you're not there.

I wished you could and stayed a little longer.
I want to make you proud.

You'll be something I carry, around my neck and near to my heart.

So if the moment may come, the moment I fear.
Can I trust you, that you're staying by my side, up there?

Don't go, let's stop the time.

I don't want to face this fear.
For my grandma, I love her.

Fury fusion
Max May 2019
Your words are like the tail of a scorpion,
Your deeds like the fangs of a snake,
Your touch like the sting of a bullet ant,
Your presence like being surrounded by hellfire.

You're satan's little helper.
Somebody is trying to sabotage something that's very precious to me.

Clueless

I have a plan,
But no clue.

Discover.
Max May 2019
Discover everything, especially if they say you shouldn't, because new things are mostly disapproved at first.

But just don't do anything that indeed is dumb and results in death.
That's just plain stupid.
It's me back in the classroom being bored.

Spring is in the air
Max Apr 2019
I love you like
Spring.
You make me happy
Like the colours
Of the trees that
blossom.
Your smile
Makes my flowers
Bloom.

And therefore I only plant roses,
Just to give them to you.
I love you

Fuel of love
Max Apr 2019
Is love the fuel of our hearts?
Because maybe we should switch fuel.
Because our hearts are polluted.
Having some difficulties with leaving bad people.
