If I could read your mind
It would be reading mine
And we would say it
At the exact same time
Funny how that happens
PPE
I was once
A man/women
Like you

Unfeared
Unmasked
Uncovered
Unrested
To keep the pain at bay

I was once
A man/women
Like you

Sorry, I can't help
As you expect
Let me first wear
That PPE

Theme: Personal Protective Equipment || In The Background Of COVID-19

I remember what we had
Long passion-filled kisses
And lovingly holding hands
The same dreams and wishes

We knew what the world was
All those happy times together
We were very deeply in love
And we made our world better

And we are so alike
Yet we are so alone
Our love is still inside
Waiting to be shown

Our lives have always been tough
In between the years apart
But it seems love was never enough
Everyone doomed us from the start

But I know our love will never falter
Even though we are not together
It is firmly etched into our hearts
It will remain there always and forever

But we are so alike
Why are we so alone?
Our love is there inside
It is a love that we own

We never had to fake it at all
But we left a lot of things unsaid
The same goals we always talked
And together we planned ahead

I feel like I'm sitting in a corner
And your on the other side of the wall
I need you now more than ever
You're so close but can't get to you at all

You know we are so alike
Yet we continue to be alone
I see you but you're out of reach
Take my hand and allow love to flow

We had no temptation for any another
At the times when we were together
We were very deeply in love
And we made the whole world better

Maybe someday our hearts will touch
We were meant to be with each other
Many times we tried to no avail
No matter what our love will last forever

We'll always be so alike
But why are we so alone?
Our love is there waiting
We just have to make it known

things can be different
from different point of views.
the same sceneries can be dull
or they can be filled with hues.

the flickering flame can burn
or the flame can be warm.
the water can quench thirst
or the water can bring storm.

we don't have to think alike,
we don't have to be the same.
for some people my words could mean
and for some they could be lame.
I see a world where everyone bleed feelings into everything they do
you might see it as a labyrinth  of forgotten people.


if we are not different then, who are we?
Stara Feb 2019
I just met you
Yet I feel like I know you
Not a type from a box
But someone who got out
Explored the world for yourself
I see myself in you
But I see so much more
You have a depth
But you are still so very much here
Your happiness isn't a given
You have worked to be who you are
I don't  think I would have been ready to meet you
I forgot I had a crush on you
When you leaned in for a kiss
I was distracted by your mind
And our hours of stimulating words
Our visits from others throughout the night
I noticed your sense of hospitality
I feel like I can articulate myself with you
We both have passts
That led us to the people we are

And to each other

Maybe we are too alike

We are alike
Almost alike
Silent

Once I told
I like your vibes
Be a family

Now she is

Status of liberty
One can't deny
Her beauty

She is just like me
I had wanted her but I rarely pay attention to her
She sits and looks for someone to pay attention to her
Yet she will get some and then nothing
Ignored
Feeling replaced
Rejected
Unloved
Probably thinking I’d be better of alone and out of everyone’s way
Just pay attention to me
Just invite me in
Don’t leave me outside in the cold
Talk to me
Don’t just glance at me every now and then
And saying hey or something relating to the conversation
Minutes pass and I’m still as quiet as a mouse
My mind starts to wander
My heart starts to sink
My eyes just want to make a river
Take me in
Love me
As a friend
A sister
Walk with me
Talk with me
Play with me
Make me smile
Laugh
Just stop
Making me cry
And feeling left out and
Alone and
Unloved
I am like her and she is like me
We are the same in many ways
But in all its changed me and maybe her
I wrote this one a while ago some years past
A Alexander Dec 2018
These tears I cry aren’t meant for you
They are for the girl I long to return to
The girl with dreams that carried her away
To ideas of travel and love and to change the world,
but something led me astray
My heart demands that I return to that little girl ,who I held so close.
My heart screams and tugs, unable to ignore, who I was once before.
I’m taking my power back, the power of a girl.
I take her hand and make sure to never leave her behind.
I wrote this as my soul somehow needed to share to the world what I feel other women feel at times too
Joanne Russell Sep 2018
It shook me from my skin
It sent shivers down my bones
It caused my head to spin
Because I thought that I had been alone

But as I laughed at my fear as folly
It stared at me is dismay
For to it right now, I was far too jolly
And it wasn’t sure if I was okay

I told it my mind was fine
Yet it still looked concerned
So I told it that I’m crazy like this all the time
And that sanity I’d never learned

It then shook in its skin
And had shivers down its bones
But at me it grinned
Because it had thought that it would always be alone

And it stayed with me
And we were dark and crazy together
And that’s how we’d like to be
From now until forever
I fathomed this poem around midnight.
