Lost Stars
Reimers Jan 6
Almost out of fuel
Light-years far from home
I already circled the moon
Even got closer to the burning sun

Maybe its time to accept the fact
That the star I once held dear
Is lost in the vast galaxy
Who knew that outer space could get lonely

Stuck with my messed up navigation
As its light always guided me
Without fail towards my location
Now its only pitch black that I see

Where do I go? What's Next?
Questions piling up, the cold creeping
What awaits me in the unknown?
Equipped with the fear of going alone

Here With You
Reimers Oct 2021
Theres this person I’ve became so fond of
She’s not one you may call whole
But trust me, inside is a warm soul
And I wouldn’t trade her for the world

Some may say she’s a handful
Ramblings of the ignorant if I might say
You just need to be patient
Then you’ll be enveloped in her world

She’s a beauty, hidden under those dark clouds
One I would storm into without hesitation
For a glance at a bright and colorful rainbow
For a glance at her prettiest smile

Not all the time it will be spring
There will be times of harsh winters
Stubborn, I’ll charge through the blizzard
Just to see the end and experience summer

A puzzle with jumbled and missing pieces
And theres nothing wrong with it
Because I am one of the same
And I’ll take my time fixing it
Cheesy I know but I write with the heart

Butterflies from you
Reimers Jul 2021
As you pick up the paintbrush
The music starts to play
Deafening the mundane cacophony
Enveloped in your made up world
A portal seen through your canvas

With each stroke of the brush
Colors starts to fly, fireworks in your mind
You sway to your own creativity
Couldn’t tell the difference,
Between you and a ballerina

The look on your face, filled with passion
Butterflies appeared out of nowhere
Carrying your emotions,
Flying in different directions
Filling the space within with life and glee

As you let go of the easel,
Ready to unveil your work of art
Smiling right at me, rays passing through
At that moment, I realized I wasn’t dreaming
There is indeed two masterpieces that I percieve

I Can Wait
Reimers Jun 2021
Keep working hard

To reach your dreams

I’ll always be here

Holding your hand

Redeemed
Reimers Jun 2021
To be consumed by my demons
Tears start to trickle, resigned to fate
I tried, the will I can no longer summon
Burdened, ready to let go of this weight

To my surprise a bright glimmering star overhead
I lift my hand, expecting to be burned
It was warm, all over my body it spread
These feelings and emotions I’ve earned

It’s been some time since I’ve put on a smile
Know that I won’t waste this chance I’ve been given
Know that I’ll be someone who’s worthwhile
Because with you I have gained an ambition

Another Sip
Reimers Apr 2021
Cigarette smoke fills the air
Reddened eyes from all the crying
In bed complaining why life ain’t fair
A sip of beer while I’m slowly dying

Hold on they said, I scoffed
How original, can’t I be left alone to rot
The last piece of my happiness took off
In its departure a lot of pain was brought

I took another chug, but met with an empty bottle
There goes my last lifeline
Here comes the memories on full throttle
I hugged my pillow, ready to resign.

Passenger
Reimers Mar 2021
I began my journey,
Walking down on this lonesome road
Wandering for miles and miles
Til a car passed by and offered a ride

She greeted me with a welcoming smile
We talked a lot and exchanged stories
We had a lot in common,
And It made the journey more exciting

It was all smooth sailing
Had we not been unaware,
That the ride was going too fast
We had to make an abrupt stop

I'd hope that I could reach the end of my journey with her
But I guess from this point on
I’m walking alone,
but this time with a smile

I’m Tired
Reimers Feb 2021
Countless attempts all to waste
Perhaps its time to let go,
The string that leads to fate
Encounters that are all for show

Easily deceived by false promises
Gullible for that wanted attention
Infatuation blocking all my senses
Only to face the inevitable rejection
Feb 2021 · 68
Tulip
Reimers Feb 2021
A tulip sowed onto the harsh ground
Awaits the weeds of the community
Suckling on its dew, defiling it all around
To live in this world, To face inhumanity

The miasma of lust and disownment
Suffocating and killing the tulip
Ravishing the flower to their heart's content
Cling to that small ray of light, oh tulip

Never let them hinder your growth
Soon you will be ready to bloom
And all those weeds you loathe
Will be brought to their doom
Jan 2021 · 68
Drunk In Love
Reimers Jan 2021
Would nicotine help me get over
The addiction I have for you
Would alcohol help me get over
The pain I felt when you left

All these vices right in front of me
Will these help me get over you
All these people around me
Will they help me get over you

The feelings and emotions
Always lead to me, ending up alone
The memories and special moments
Always lead to me, writing a poem
Dec 2020 · 66
All's Fair
Reimers Dec 2020
Who knew endings could be so abrupt
Just when you're already dancing to the rhythm
They cut you off and take a piece of you
Leaving you less of a whole

No matter how much you prepare yourself
You will never be prepared,
from the reality that will take place
The emotional consequences that come after

But hey! It was a good run, right?
You were happy You made memories
Isn't that enough to keep you going
Now let go and let the emotions flow
Jun 2020 · 121
Stuck In A Loop
Reimers Jun 2020
Is it gonna be like this forever
To only see you through photos
To express how I feel for you in poems
Unable to do in person, failing at every endeavour

Is it gonna be like this forever
To suffocate from the anxiety of loving
To feel depressed cause I feel I am nothing
Just a hopeless romantic, suffering and waiting

Is it gonna be like this forever
I kept asking myself the same thing
But even If I take action, it’ll end up for nothing
Maybe I am meant to be like this forever

Forest Elements
Reimers May 2020
Evergreens cover the forest
Fallen leaves at every step
Walking silently is a myth
Theres no place to avoid the crunch at each step

The rain pours, flowing through the soil
Throwing the wet leaves downhill
As I struggle forward
Progress slows to a crawl

A glimmer of the suns ray peeks in the foliage
Pointing towards a clear pathway
Ive thought that the forest has kept me a hostage
But little to my knowledge I was guided by a fae
May 2020 · 111
Midnight Downpour
Reimers May 2020
Midnight routine, checking my phone
As I stumble upon old pictures of you
It reminded me its ***** being alone
Smile, while the tears flow through

Playlist full of sad and sappy songs
Memories of my time with you filled my mind
The rain starts to pour and the cold breeze joined along
Overwhelmed by emotions, never forget the heart reminds
May 2020 · 83
Spotlight
Reimers May 2020
I yearn to be in the center, to be in the spotlight
Burdened by my unpopular features
But with courage and passion I will take flight
Holding back, anxiety and seizures

There will be a slight delay but I will arrive
It might take long , maybe even a year or two
Bringing along dreams and promises as my drive
Even if along the path I’m to be seen a fool

If perchance someone gets ahead of me
With all that I can, I’ll seize the center
Even if I have to face the very worst
And if I cannot, I shall wait for my time to enter

Haunted
Reimers Apr 2020
Every night when I try to sleep
I am met by unpleasant memories
Drowning in it, that is ever so deep
Suffocating, accompanied by anxiety

Its nothing supernatural, just the past that i cannot let go
The failures and mistakes, that shackles my happiness
Live and let go but I’m  stupid enough to let it flow
It is not simple or maybe it is, the cause of my loneliness

I’m blessed with friends, but this heart craves more
Which lead to this event that prevents me to be happy
Stuck in a loop, trying to open a locked door
It needs a key, with all that I’ve done, It doesn’t seem to be me
Been awhile since i have written a poem

Stranded
Reimers Mar 2020
As I awoke, I was welcomed by the vast sea
Laying on soft sand filled with rocks and debris
Whilst the sun and its rays are staring at
me
I could find a shade but then again I have no reason to flee

As the sun sets and the moon looms above me
And without a single source of light, I was left in the dark
Feeling the cold grip of the night, paying the terrible fee
Had I been more prepared when I decided to embark

As the night sets deeper, and the silence became deafening
I wonder if I will come out of this with my sanity intact
My eyes grew weary staring at the void, whilst my body is trembling
Not from the cold, but from the absence of contact
Feb 2020 · 117
Hypocrite
Reimers Feb 2020
A foolish ploy I enact for escaping
Proclaimed that I have moved on
Knowing to myself that I’m in ruin
Crying over a couple of beers listening to sad songs

Showed everyone that I’m fine and sane
But to be honest, I’m enduring my bane
As the mouth can always deceive
The eyes can tell how a life is lived

There is no escaping from the truth
No matter how much I run and hide
Unconsciously, I go down the same route
Truth be told there’s no restraining these feelings inside
Jan 2020 · 356
Poet’s Ink
Reimers Jan 2020
I might be the poet

Maker of countless words

Creating art, portraying life in every verse

But you, my favorite person of this earth

The reason these words and thoughts are given birth
Jan 2020 · 109
Perplexed
Reimers Jan 2020
I feel stuck, a jack in a box
Pull my crank, I will appear
Not me, but rather one that is faux
A facade shown, to appease my peer

But if stuck, akin to schrodingers cat
Because true feelings i hide with a mask
Unknown if I’m doing well with pent up feelings
Feelings that got my sanity reeling

Cursed this arrow that impaled my soul
Mundane enough that I fell in a manhole
For I yearn to be romantic yet timid
So back in the box, stuck I’m winded
Jan 2020 · 209
Otherside
Reimers Jan 2020
Often, I wish to climb
The wall that separates the two us
Is this our paradigm
Where any approach is considered a bust

Exert all the effort, sweat away
But at the end of the day I fall back down
There is no top or end, just dismay
A loop where in sorrow myself drown

But you love them dont you ?
But do they know you exist too ?
The presence of doubt makes it harder to climb
The weight in my heart, makes it easier to fall
Jan 2020 · 40
Cries of the Forest
Reimers Jan 2020
As embers consume the land
The last branch unlatches from the oldest tree
Rivers all dried up and replaced with sand
Roaring flames, deafening the animals plea

Amidst the noise, you could hear singing
From a little songbird, embracing her unborn
Who stood her ground unwavering
From an unexpected event that made their life forlorn

Start anew little song bird build your nest in the forest above
Where the fires and destruction could no longer harm you
Where you and your fellow animals will be treated with love
Just let go and join everyone as they pass through
Jan 2020 · 100
Quietly, Now
Reimers Jan 2020
How can you shut up the heart
Like for an hour or two
Because every time I’m with you it starts Beating uncontrollably, making my mouth move

I tried shutting my mouth but to no avail, If I were to stay silent, I feel like I bore you But the more I talk, the more I feel the words I say becomes stale
Different topics spewed trying to push through

When the only thing I wanted to do was spend time with you
Treasure the moment of us two
With the little time we spend together
To know if I have a chance to go further
Jan 2020 · 86
Masterpiece
Reimers Jan 2020
As I watch you create art
Exerting every effort to make it a masterpiece
Putting a part of yourself in every stroke
The world around me starts to cease

I get enveloped in your creativity
Everywhere is vibrant, painted with different colors
Grandiose formation of lines and shapes giving off positivity
Imaginativeness that will fascinate and wonder

As I get back to reality
Realizing theres already a finished masterpiece
What others tend to overlook and only I can see
Is the beauty of the artist
Dec 2019 · 110
Our Moment
Reimers Dec 2019
Clouds starts to darken
Embrace the cold droplets
The symphony you must listen
When they fall and meet the ground

An orchestra composed by nature
Prepared especially for you
With its soft and sweet feature
You are swayed by the rain

A romantic display for two
Wondering why theres only you
But this is the part where I say
Shall I dance with you ?
Lets just say its a confession poem
Dec 2019 · 197
Scenery
Reimers Dec 2019
As she runs off to the sunset
Filled with glee as she gazes at it
Little did she know it was a duet
A beautiful view and her captivating hue
Nov 2019 · 164
Glow in the Dark
Reimers Nov 2019
Amidst the lonely night sky
This one star dwells
Its only objective and nothing else
Is to glow and be seen up high

It lingers on the same spot every night
Waiting for someone or something
Even when nothing is in sight
It perseveres to stay and wait patiently

Up there wrapped in vast dreadful cold
Yet it still stays warm and glowing
Is it for a noble cause to be that brave and bold
To just stay there waiting for the unknown
Reimers Oct 2019
When I first met you, I honestly didn’t know
That you were gonna be this important to me
And every moment I spent with you
Is like a dream come true
Oct 2019 · 187
Sanctuary
Reimers Oct 2019
For your beauty is like a work of art
Abstract but invites an otherworldly feeling
You are worth a broken heart
Eluding the loneliness, I’m dealing

Mood
Reimers Sep 2019
It may look like I'm silent
But don't let it fool you
I'm holding back the will
To say that I love you

Courtship
Reimers Sep 2019
Scars well up within, hidden from naked eyes
As foolish as this may seem, It won't stop me
With every defeat, a new and sturdy me arise
Treading down this road comes with a fee

But I'm already jumping into the fray
Prepared to give everything I've got
Dancing along with cupids romantic display
Enacting the role of an Argonaut
Aug 2019 · 194
Bittersweet
Reimers Aug 2019
The scent of coffee engulfs the room
Amidst a table for two
A place where jazz music looms
Reserved for just me and you

Ignorant of the world around me
Distracted by your alluring hue
And that smile in clear view
Adds sweetness to my bitter coffee
Aug 2019 · 113
Obstacles
Reimers Aug 2019
Alone with my thoughts
Eating away my happiness
A trap, I've been caught
There was no struggle, I confess

Succumb to darkness embrace
The shadow whisper to me
One that looks familiar, similar to my face
If I let it inside me, I can no longer flee

It's not easy to abandon my light
For now, I'll calm down and breakthrough
It is the sole reason why I fight
I'll endure all pain, treading the path to you
Aug 2019 · 366
Where the sun sets
Reimers Aug 2019
To climb a mountain
One must prepare for the journey ahead
For the conditions up top cannot be tamed
Many have tried but all have fled

To fail is to progress
Climb again and persevere
The beauty atop, the air to ingest
One must take in the surreal atmosphere

But atop is where we'll truly see
If man's truly worthy
Will he be kind or will he be greedy
To be the caretaker of mother natures beauty
Jul 2019 · 707
Chin Up
Reimers Jul 2019
Things may not always go our way
Its's no one's fault, that's how the world works
We just need to chin up and be okay
Grab a bottle and pop the cork

Sit back and let pain takes its course
We need not be strong at all times
No need to feel any remorse
It'll subside, eventually, we'll feel fine
Jul 2019 · 110
Routine
Reimers Jul 2019
Every single day I try,
To catch her attention
Trying out every ways
Even with this lingering tension

Telling me I'm replaceable
Pushing me to the edge, telling me to quit
But it doesn't mean I'm not able,
To change the outcome, bit by bit

Curious? to why I'm like this
Being annoying and resolute
Simple, within her embrace I feel bliss
While hiding an obvious and cliche truth

That I'm so adamant to conceal,
Whenever I'm with or without her
Wanting to shout it with utmost zeal
That I'm madly in love with her
Jul 2019 · 98
Knight of the Opera
Reimers Jul 2019
Every passing day is a battle
All those days I put up an act
Battles that'll surely test a man's mettle
Whilst keeping thy sanity intact

For I fight not through a battlefield
But on a huge stage alone with her and I
Pushing through, baring no shield
With confidence alone, victory is nigh

Dancing through the ecstatic beat
To waver or to falter is no option
For she is gonna be my greatest feat
A gem in the darkest depths of the ocean

She might be hardheaded
Who's to say I'm not the same
To her sweet embrace, I'm headed
And her heart I shall lay claim

Dancing In The Dark Vol III
Reimers Jul 2019
An auction was held at the gallery
Many from afar had come
He who loved the painting so dearly
Puts on his best suit and brought a large sum

For he dreamed this day to come
Finally, he and the painting can be one
Alas a person came that made him numb
Who commanded power and
money, outbid everyone

Stood there lifeless
Could not comprehend what happened
Nowhere to go, feeling hopeless
His once favorite spot now darkened

Missing is the painting he so loved
That  was taken from him in an instant
For once he never felt loved
And that dream is now very distant

Left the gallery soaked with tears
His heart has died and lost it spark
All alone with a couple of beers
Drunk and left dancing in the dark
Something I experimented along with the other 2 volumes
Reimers Jul 2019
Eyes only for it at the start
Claimed to never look away
Ignored and started falling apart
Eyes now set on a new display

Intense feelings were felt from the last
But comfort was provided by the new
Decided to move and forget the past
And embraced the one that understands his hue

Nervous for what he had done
A crime only his heart can tell
For he broke a pledge, saying she was the one
Now his heartaches, like being burned by the fires of hell

Questioned himself If it was wrong
To pursue something that gave him ease
Like dancing to a properly tuned song
The closest to what he can call bliss
Jul 2019 · 160
Work of Art Vol I
Reimers Jul 2019
An ordinary guy nonetheless
Enters a gallery, full of wonders
Sighs can be heard, he was not impressed
About to leave, but heard thunder.

He stayed for the time being
Waiting for the storm to pass
He explored the entire building
And saw a painting, that he cannot bypass

For the painting bewitched him
Granted intense feeling of love and anxiety
He could not move a muscle, and it was on a whim
Staring at it like it was some kind of deity

No matter the occasion, he was there
Looking at the painting, like it was no object
Wishing he could hold it, but could only stare
For he wasn't worthy to have something so perfect.

It's All About You
Reimers Jul 2019
You, yes you!
And your smile
Your laugh
Yes all of those

Gives me energy and hope
Fills my world with glee
No sadness nor pain  I can't cope
Gives off strength as vast as the blue sea

In simpler terms
I like you, yes I do
I wouldn't even be writing this if I didn't
Aside from the normal poem

This one is special
You are special
Wait..I'm in love
With whom? With you
Jul 2019 · 140
Hope
Reimers Jul 2019
I was once left alone with pain
Cried for help, but to no avail
Maybe because I was too mundane.
No one special, just an ordinary gale

Never been  look at twice
Ordinary like a grain of rice
Forgotten like a sunken ship
Wishing that this life of mine, I can skip.

As I fall in my self created abyss
Something peeked through
A small light that felt like bliss
At that moment, something inside me started to brew.

My heart resonates with the light
Thawing its prison of ice
Releasing me from its plight
Once again, I can experience paradise
Jul 2019 · 204
Unexpected Visitor
Reimers Jul 2019
Feelings that were once lost
Knocking again at my door
Indeed a risk I crossed
But missing an opportunity, I abhor

Felt like I was in cloud nine
Not caring about anything
But the moment I blinked appeared a vine
That pulled me away from everything

Darkness everywhere nothing I see
The place reeks of despair and pain
The farther I was pulled the more it desecrates me
It never stopped, my sanity slain
Jul 2019 · 793
Be Real
Reimers Jul 2019
Take care of your smile
You're always frowning
It's been a while
Notice it is raining

You looked up to the sky
It is bright and clear
Did not notice the streaming tears
On your face, you wonder why?

Stop Harboring all the pain
Lean on me and Let it all out
Free yourself from your chains
Don't stop, Don't doubt

Leave the past behind
Cast aside all the pain
Never again be confined
Happiness you shall obtain
Jul 2019 · 169
Limbo
Reimers Jul 2019
Why is that I'm still here
Trapped in a room, with your pictures on the wall.
That whenever I go near, it disappears
And If I do get to touch it, I fall

Why is that with every fall, I end up back here.
Repeating the same scenario over and over
Getting back up, fall, then shed tears.
The more I fall, the room gets colder

Why can I not stop and give up
Abandon you and start living
With every fall my sanity blows up
But my heart insists on beating

For you and none other
Even if it starts to bleed
I will never falter
I will never concede

"Love's Cacophony"
Reimers Jun 2019
Waiting, amidst the usual crowd
To get noticed by someone I admire
Yet hidden within this friendship cloud
That keeps telling me I should retire

Love plays *****, it has ensnared my heart
No longer can I break free from this trance
My mind and body are being torn apart
Dancing through the beat of romance

I've sought ways to break free
Knowing my heart, I dare not
For it is a sin to myself if I flee
A tragedy to myself I've brought

Staying would lead to agony
My heart beats go unnoticed
Deafened by love's cacophony
Excruciatingly patient to get noticed

— The End —
