I used to read your poems
but lately you don't write
you're silent and aloof
you know that isn't right.
You can't close a door once opened
you can't abolish all your dreams
you're a poet of the heart
mustn't fall apart at the seams.
Say what you can in words
they speak the message true
spoken from the heart
the poems will see you through.
A hermit's not your style
a recluse, you are not
never give up writing
of things that you've been taught.
I used to read your poems
I'd read them once again
if you would send them out
(this one's from a poet friend)

Tear drop
 Dec 2018 Daniel
My friend,today will soon end
It's  now or never,you'll  check the timing
A lonely tear falls down and dries on the cheek...
A friend reached out and tried to understand ..
if only the globe paused for your perfection,it would drawn in a tear lake.

Now or never!I'll  realise..
A contemplate of a teardrop,that's  all I see
It's all dry deep down your eyes,but signs still show,huh!
So many nights it dropped,trickling down,wet as the sand on the beach.A lonely heart imploded around a frown.
Tomorrow ,this will feel like yesterday's  newspaper!

Life will carry on,if you want to see your star shining,
then  check the night speed.You've  never seen the susnset..
It all felt like dawn,right?
Filled with tears,but now you'll  see it set,and that  won't be amere..I believe .
You can always find a way out!
There's  always a way  out,whether troubled or not just belive!

When I write poetry,
I forget to breathe and eat as it consumes me.
When I forget to breathe,
My head hurts
From lack of oxygen, possibly.
Then, my stomach screams,
"Feed me, please!"
So, this is my cue
To shutdown PC,
Leave HP,
Go eat, brush teeth, breathe in, and dream.

If everything is going well

sadly me
 Dec 2018 Daniel
Made a wrong turn once or twice
Dug my way out, blood and fire
Bad decisions, that's alright
Welcome to my silly life

Mistreated, misplaced, misunderstood
Miss No-Way-It's-All-Good,
It didn't slow me down.
Mistaken, always second guessing
Underestimated, look, I'm still around

I don’t want your fingers to bleed
while holding the pieces of my broken heart

I don’t want your eyes to cry
for the pain that lives inside me

I don't want your tounge to taste blood
each time it whispers my name

I don’t your hands to shiver
while reaching for my cold soul

I don’t want you to suffocate
while drawing air to my lungs

I don’t want you to consume
the venom that flows inside my veins

I don’t want you to break down
in the process of healing me

So I’ll love you but only from a safe distance
Knowing that we don’t belong to each other
I’ll always love you
But will never show it
i think it's better this way

They will tell you
All poetry has been written
There is nothing new
Under the moon
But let me tell you
They don’t know you
You are as unique
As the DNA that exists
Within your frame
The ripples on your thumbprint
No one ever had the same.


You have something to say
Say it proudly
Say it boldly
Never let them scold you.

Never let them make you go away.
I love it when someone tells me to keep writing. You should keep writing too!
