Falling in love
Mel Oct 26
Falling in love is something people do

But only on days that don't end with y

And only on mornings when the sun doesn't rise

Only when the moon reaches its highest point in the sky

That is when people fall in love and take a trip

Quite a dive

Memories
Mel Oct 12
I miss when you used to be mine

I now catch myself wishing
I was yours
10/12/2021
Mel Oct 6
I've never been able to remember
your name
Or remember the upturn of
your lips
I've struggled to recall the sensation of
your touch
And the hardships we had faced

Schooling
Mel Sep 22
Fe is iron
     it makes no sense
Au is gold
     i don't understand it at all
Cu is copper
     BUT THERE IS NO U IN COPPER

Chemistry is so so confusing
Why can't it be easy
Like 3-2 is 1
Or Josie like James
Like 2a+3a is 5A

Tragedies
Mel Sep 9
Why do I have to be the one to
die
This tragedy made into a comedy
I'm the sick joke
who dies after being kissed
by my love

Smell of Blood
Mel Sep 1
The sweet smell of blood
underneath the breakable heart
An upbeat, yet tired love
keeps me from going broad
keeps me from Her grip

I strongly dislike the way I talk

And the way I have a lisp.

I strongly dislike the way I can’t drive,

And I disklike I can’t eat shrimp.

I strongly dislike that my feet are way too big

And the way bounce when I walk.

I strongly dislike myself to the point of starvation,

Although I’m not much skinnier, not at all.

I dislike how I’m never right,

I dislike when I lie.

I strongly dislike the way I laugh,

Even worse is how I cry.

I dislike when nobody is around

And the fact I always feel alone.

But mostly, I strongly dislike how I shouldn’t dislike myself,

Not close, or even a little bit at all.

Don't blink

Or you might miss

The sun setting or

Your last dying breath

Following the Leader
Mel May 17
I follow the red road
To freedom
I follow the yellow flowers
To my psat
I follow the green clovers
To my future
And I stand still to take
In the fragrance of
The blooming flowers
And dancing clovers
And the earthy red road
For my present

History
Mel May 13
History likes to repeat itself
But sometimes it likes to change
The curve in the river
Will start going straight
And the walls on the castle
Are now crumbling down

But then a new river is formed
And a new wall is built
And history starts all over again

Maybe it does repeat itself

I'm trying to get into the habit of writing more and writing more on themes but I've been stuck between work and school :-(

I hate tests
Mel May 5
I hate tests
Maybe it's because the circles
remind me of rings of
fire
Or maybe it's because the tests
are like life or death to a grade
that won't
matter

I just know I hate tests
I hate taking tests

Midnight Snack
Mel May 4
Tip.. Tap..
Children's shoes against the
Hardwood floors
Giggles in the air
Cookies in a jar

Tip.. Tap..
A child climbing a shelf
To reach the top
Only to fall
Leaving the cookies for the night

End of the River
Mel Apr 29
As flowers and dirt covers
the cautious ground
A long lure of leafy gray

Clear nectar runs into the water
Running down the mountain and
To the end of the river

Fatty Lies

I was so so sure
That the minister of mine
Would stop his hide
From splitting and stop
The fatty lies from being heard

Behind a van
Off a lit-up city street
Two dying forces meet
To read the drowning words of
Faceless man

Cherry and her dear Dee
Mel Apr 24
Cherry wished her dear Dee would see her color
The falling shades of leafy green
The hints of pink that people love to reach for
She hoped for a small moment of feeling
Between Cherry and her dear Dee

The Earth is Crying
Mel Apr 22
We've listened to the words
Of politics instead of science

We'll avoid the topic
Until the Earth cries her last tears

One day we'll be at fault
For all the problems we've caused

But right now
The Earth is still crying

My Dear Fat Minister
Mel Apr 14
My dear friend
My dear fat minister
My ambassador of truth

I cannot quite recall
How to spell my name
Or how to tell a lie

I can't be handy anymore
It's raising the call for alarm

My dear friend
Show me the truth

Why won't you ever love me?

Please love me

The words "I love you"
Doesn't mean anything
But the soft touches against
My hand everyday, and
The fact you can remember
My birthday without a calendar
Does mean something.

The phrase "I'll never leave you"
Doesn't mean anything
But when you give me flowers
On a random day, and you know
My favorite color is green, a forest green
Does mean something.

The smile on your face
Doesn't mean anything
But when you are cautious
And remember I don't like
Physical contact without permission
That means something
I'm so in love with him sometimes

What is Mine?
Mel Mar 30
“What’s mine is yours.”
The lie melted off your tongue without remorse
The hook of your words draws people in
Only to recast them out once more
You infiltrate the borders of their walls
And tell them
“What’s mine is yours.”

Can you Blame Me?

I just had a thought,
A tiny
Measly thought
What if everything,
Really isn’t my
Fault?
I hate that I feel this way

When you’re born without
                         Color
How are you supposed to view the
           Vibrant
                                        And the brilliant
How are you supposed to see the
                 Light
                          And the dark
When the lack of color you have
        Makes you only see
                                          Gray
               The color of
                                    Clay
                   And the color of
Purgatory
          The color of
                                        Nothing
                What do you do when you’re
Born without

                                                        ­                                                          Color
Enjoy, the spacing is hard

Van Gogh’s The Starry Night
Is full of color and fright

It gives you the rush of a feeling,
The rush of no return
You can see where the mind split and fell
Through the cracks of the earth

The indigo lines and the yellow circles
Van Gogh’s The Starry Night
Mel Mar 4
Let’s lay on the grass
We can just hold each other, pressing our lips together
In unorganized harmony

We can be the only ones in the world
Just for a moment

That
Small
Small
Moment

We can be the only ones in the world
To lay on the grass
And kiss
I want this so much, you know?

Digging for the Soul

Hidden beneath
The layers of cloth
Hidden beneath
your skin
and your tissue
and your bones
Is your heart
The one that belongs
To me
I've been trying to write a collection of romance poems! So enjoy!

"I love you"

I know.

"Do you love me too?"

No.
To a person or to yourself, love is never one-sided

Honeybees
Mel Feb 7
When you took me out to that field
I was so sure we were friends

But then the sweet smell of nectar on your hands
The sweet cherry color of your lips coated now in yellow

A feeling of love, pure love
I didn't know I had came over me

But you didn't notice how my eyes went pink as I stared
Maybe you already knew, maybe you didn't

I made it clear though when I tasted the honey from
off your lips
When I say I'm gay for this, I'm definitely gay for this

I love space and romance

Would Napoleon be so well known

If his name was Adam?

Would DaVinci be so well known

If his last name was Smith?

Does a name really make up a person?

Or does a person make a name great?
