One man 13h

Tell me now then Mr minister
why is politics all so sinister
In past controlled us all with fear
now they fear the truth is near

Divide and conquer is the goal
hate what they cannot control
Internet means communication
no longer divided globalisation

We are numbers this they know
struggling to keep us all below
on our shoulders they've stood
not helping others as they could

We all know about their crime
and now I think that it is time
for a simple an affective solution
has anyone heard of revolution?

Like it or lump it

She was like a broken record
Repeating her song of lies ,good faith and happiness
And they all judge her
But can't they hear it
There song
It's repeating  
Maybe someone should let them know

Empty 20h

Like a broken record my emotions play on repeat.
Eventually the music moves on,
but it always finds its way back to the beat,
and I get it,
I could always move on
and buy a new record,
but I like this scratched music,
there's not one thing better.

I don’t hate him
I just wish I hadn’t fallen for his little game
I don’t wish him bad omens
I just pray he doesn’t do the same to other girls
I don’t tell his secrets
I just let people figure out his intentions on their own
I don’t miss him
I just have an aching in my chest when I think about him
I don’t cry over him
I just stay up at night contemplating the pain he caused me
I do forgive him
But I don’t forget the scars he left
I don’t forget the lies he fed me
I don’t forget the things he took from me
That I will never get back
I don’t forget the feeling of unworthiness
And I will never forget the words he said
As we neared the end
I don’t hate him
But I don’t love him either.

I hold no animosity towards the man who broke me, for without him I wouldn’t be as strong as I am today.

Spell words that bind together passing strangers
Set down thoughts coalescing those whom often walk alone
                 Append the goodwill of poetry,
                 bonding individual hearts and minds
Assemble letters to bespeak sincerely,
                 a hope of unabated love
Spel­l words that bind together passing strangers
How can one unseeunhear what decries one love?
Some say it’s not love when your love is unrequited    
Spell it another way, so it cannot be abandoned
                 like a deserted broken heart

Spell words that bind together passing strangers
Intertwine warp and weft fabric
                 stitching understanding uttered artistry
Entwined within the threads that weave poetic tapestry
Unveil the lyrical essence of singular hearts and minds

Spell words that bind together passing strangers
Compose eloquent sonnets that impassion hopeful hearts
Betoken words that unite lost and broken souls
Muse the alphabet to beget an amazing grace

Spell words that bind together passing strangers
Sense hearts awaking of a beautiful enveloping love
Manifest a vivid renaissance of random acts of kindness
                 Testify, uplifting bemused spirits;
                 bear witness to a higher love from mountain high

Spell words that bind together passing strangers
L o v e  is amity beyond the bounds of a   f o u r  letter  w o r d
Assemble letters to embrace a sublime affection
The total sum, affinity is the fusion to become one love

Spell words that bind together passing strangers
How can unwritten words change your heart
                 about singing love psalms?
Inseparable musical notes synthesis
within the greatest harmony of song

Spell words that won’t question,  
                 "will  I  ever  spell  l o v e  again?”

Spell it another way so it cannot unravel

                 amities' sublime tapestry

                 or ever be lost again …

... be thankful to hold the power & choice to just be you ―

"Oh, the comfort-inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person-having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that the faithful hand will take them and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away."

   Dinah Maria Mulock Craik

It hurts when you look others
But no one looks you back
It hurts when you care others
But no one cares you back,
It hurts when you love others
But no one loves you back,
It hurts after you know that
Whatever things you are doing for others
Aren't going to be valued and appreciated
Is useless to do, But still, you do
Because you are not same to them
You are different,
That's why you are you,
A true exquisite pure life.

Do you relate to me?.

Standing in an ocean of dreams
Dreams that would lead me to you
Your life is so precious to me
It's my dream to be next to someone like you

The cool autumn breeze whispers
"He's the one. Your one and only."
I smile sweetly, nodding
"I know."

Pine trees mimic the movement of the wind
Waving hello at me, ever so gently and calmly
They agree with the wind, showing off their dark hues
I take a deep breath
"I see."

Our hands intertwine with, one after another
Our eyes stare deeply into each other
Heads moving, stealing glaces at our love
He's my moon, my sun and my brightest star

If only he knew about my presence
If only he knew he wasn't a real being
If only he knew
If only.

I originally wrote this for my boyfriend at the time, but since we are no longer together, I decided to provide a... twist to it

About you I was so curious,
But now I am so furious.
Your lies and cheating left me broken,
From under your spell I’ve finally awoken.

In the beginning there’s such intense love,
It was like you were a gift sent from above.
I honestly believed all the things you said,
Knowing it was all lies makes me wish I was dead.

I listened with empathy about your toxic ex’s,
About bad bosses, family issues and all your other vex’s.
You listened intently about all my woes
I bet you top the list of Narcissist pros.

You watched me & learnt what my life was lacking,
Asking me what I’d need to make my life cracking.
You then moulded yourself into my knight in shining armour,
Once I’d given you my heart & soul you then unleashed the drama.

Six weeks into our love affair your mask suddenly fell,
Hunting out new supply, a game you play so well.
A new victim was selected & you started up your act,
Trying to fill the void that her life did lack.

Again you played your part so well, she was putty in your hands,
By me finding out it ruined all your vile plans.
I should’ve stayed away back then but I believed we were destined to be,
Everyone warned me of the monster you were but I was too blind to see.

You carried on with Liz for nearly a year
I think I stayed anyway out of fear
I wanted our future, I wanted our happy ending
The impossible dream is over it’s now time to start mending.

he finds you beautiful

"god, you're so beautiful!"

only when he's getting pleasured
something that makes your heart squeeze a little.

Angie S 1d

in eons the Earth
found the means to create
a wonderous world populated
with lush forests, rippling oceans,
and life bursting from every corner

and yet, the planet
still spins in the same direction
the moon still
borrows her light from the sun

then tell me
what's the use of
wishing on shooting stars
they've seen every unchanging moment
they know each story ends the same way

the flowers i've planted
have never bloomed, nor felt spring
all these years i believed
with enough water i could do

perhaps i need to
plant my flowers elsewhere
or perhaps i should
accept this broken universe

i want to thank the hello poetry community for being so supportive of my poetry over the past month or so. a lot of them have trended and the comments i've gotten are so nice! maybe i don't get as much feedback as other poets, but it's okay :)

my whole life i've tried to fix things
but doing so has broken me
