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

i wake up each morning with myself
i fall asleep every night
with myself
I hold myself when I'm sad
and hurt myself when
i'm angry
i wipe my tears through the difficulties
and berate myself through
my failures
i love everything i hate about myself
and hate everything i love
about myself.
i'd leave me if i could, i wouldn't want to be anybody else

The direction of blame often has implications for individuals’ emotions and behaviors
Before I blame anybody I'm going to blame myself
Because knowing the What's and the How's
The opposite of empathy, due to self afflicted injuries
You are only privileged what you've contributed
Renard Jackson Feb 2022
Desecrated in cold stares not beyond ones sight to be unheard
Involved with actions of screenplay
Fought so slightly with means to run away
Not scared, just irritated
Heaves implacability to be disrespected
Lounged from so far to be seen as an outcast

Knowing right from knowing what’s wrong
Doing out of spite to move on
Detrimental drinking patron
I’m living life in a zone
Misconstrued I’m feeling tested
Living life but fighting death
Recognizing demons within myself
Surrounded by feelings except love
Reaching for acceptance refrain from no glove
Bask in your memories of hope to be spared
Grasp to the decision of how much do I care
In fear of nothing as in no man or no woman
Although death could be around the corner so is it the future I wonder
Aside from my actions my words are a interlude
For I see myself as one hell of a dude
Faults might vary in truths no lie I’m as close to having clarity as to growing wings to fly
With only family no friends life ends where it begins

Strip, remove, pull, or tear the covering or outer layer from something.
cant give too much from what is taken, I Am.

Make your intentions clear so we both don’t waste each other time stop dating people who only wants to see you at night if you want those who know nothing about a date night, vacations, or surprises.
After you pick someone over me, please don’t bring your lame *** back people will come back in your life after they get disappointed by people they thought were better than you. No hook up or *******, I’m patience enough to seek the right one, to find that special kind of love that’s what I want to feel but I would be patience for the right one if interested it would be a pleasure, I’m not here for games. It would be nice for someone real with someone that chooses you everyday not just when they are in the mood for you.
Eventually they are the same
