Melanie 2d
Flowers flourish like clock hands rotating in time
ACs perish in the scorching heat
Leaves fall from the trees like little parachutes
A tide of snow holds people hostage in their homes
Even though the seasons change, your vagrant heart beats the same

I always thought that you were sincere
But let me make this clear
Why did you have to knock me down to pick me up in pieces?

I'm running in circles
Chasing my own shadows
Trying to make sense of what you have done
You left my love unrequited
And now I'm all alone
Holding on to the distant memories of you instead of your hand
Oh, I'm ashamed that I once called you mine

Before you left me, you said
I'm going to be honest
I can't keep our promise
I'm the reason we're caving in
Don't want to further tarnish your heart

Although it pains me to say
I can't keep living this way
You're no longer the light that brightens my day
You meant more than the world could give
Your words pierce my skin like thorns on roses
I'm afraid that your wilted love will never bloom

I could never rid of the thought of you
Someday, along the line, I will find my way to be all right
My mind may not be fine, but I won't give up
I want you to be aware that I simply don't care
Your love was like a complex dare that I played
I wrote this poem last year at 17. I drew my inspiration from a song that I really love, which touched upon heartbreak.

Have I told you about that day
When I gave up all hope?
Can I tell you about that day?
Because it just might come again

Just let me tell you
About the day I gave up
When the sky seemed too blue
And my life was dull gray.

No one knows about that day
When I couldn't hold on
But now it must be shared
Before another one like it comes

Today is not like that day
For I can see much more clearly
And my head does not spin, yet
I fear another one like it comes.
the skies were blue, and the day came out of no where
Is it that time already?
I did not expect this day to come,
Yet I knew it was coming all along.

Your face I recognize it from before I lived.
So beautiful, flawless and shimmering.
Everything that was a blur is now clear to me,
You have lifted my eyelids so I can see.
You were always there besides me.

The colours are so pretty,
I can see further down the spectrum.
I can see there is more dimension to you,
and that there is more dimension to me.

I missed you,
I was gone for so long,
But I have come back to you.

What do you mean I need to go?
Why are you leaving already?
I have waited long enough,
just take me in already!

Take me to this place,
this place beyond imagination!
Take me to this place,
this place beyond limitation!

I want to leave this all behind,
I want to go with you,
so I can fly too.

Got nobody, I’m all alone
Got no shoulder to cry on
A hand to hold, no there’s none
Just broken pieces and then some

It’s tough to be on my own
Had to build walls since you’re gone
An island in the middle of an ocean
The lights are off, the music’s done

Have no idea what I’m gonna do
Seems like the sky is now a different hue
The stars here are not much of a view
There’s grass here but no morning dew

I’m sorry I had hurt you
I didn’t mean it, believe me it’s true
If I could turn back time, you know I would
But right now, there’s not much I could do

Promise I’d step back and won’t go near
It’s hard but I guess this is how it’s meant to be
Our stolen time is done, now our path is clear
I won’t ever meet you again so, I’ll stop here

Will I ever prove that I exist? What do I exist as?

I may try and be a shadow to you
trying to protect you from the scorching heat,
but will I ever know that you're a night wanderer?

I may try to be the rainbow
for the silver lining in your storm,
but will I know that you constantly live in a drought?

I may even be a nightingale
filling your ears with music divine,
but when will you tell me that you are deaf?
Deaf to my yearnings and my cries,
and blind towards the tears
that wouldn't come out of my eyes.
Deaf to the rhythm my heart beats for you,
And yet I keep making the music.
I keep making the music.

I keep making the music,
perhaps to prove that I exist.
But what decides existence?
Do I exist?

I exist in nostalgia,
when people remember their first true loves.
I exist in memoirs,
of the greatest rivals they made.
I exist as the guidelines,
of the way they shouldn't live their lives.
I exist in their sensations,
illuminating how comforting a touch should be.

Yet I need to prove that I exist.
It's clear now.
I exist.
And you do too,
even if it is as a reader or critic of a this mere poem on this website.
I know you're there.
In flow I’m yet still,
Present here, but eternal;
A mystery clear!
I spotted you alone across the crowded room
With the feelings I thought I would never consume
Who knew that I’d gamble and come out on top
That my mind would cease spinning, and that time would just stop

When heart break,
and love is at stake,
It so much ache,
Still we have to live for our sake..

Crying lakes of tear,
Facing emptiness and fear,
When no one's is our dear,
Nothing is clear,
No more heart can bear,
Just hang on there,
This world is sphere..
Karma goes no where,
You are blessed,
Fake love has left you this year.
To all the beautiful people out there,going through breakup right now. Stay strong and have faith on karma. Leave all the fake love and people ,just in this year. Begin new with positive vibes in new year.
oh! My love
put your hand in mine
we will discover a wealth mine

we will be rich
and gain every wish
i know the winds blew up

disturbing all things
the ship sinks
if we follow sail against winds

the clouds appear
making the universe dark
we will convert our black

into good and sweet
if we follow our lights
gain from hearts

the poor will be at land
preventing any plant
we will plant

it will be green
if we plant tree
of love which is free

the Satan will appear
announcing war at angels
it will stay

if we we only obey
the lover which is clear
love is the tree of honest, faith , believe

Only after a storm can you truly appreciate a clear sky.
