I slipped

I slipped and fell so fast,
It was embarrassing.
You laughed asking if I was okay,
But no I just fall over things.

My biggest fall was for you.

It didn't hurt at first,
I didn't realise it quick,
Until your smile was my world,
Without it, it was sick.

There was a drop.

So fast and low,
My love for you found no bounds,
I didn't think to let you go.

I fell

I fell so fast and deep,
Your eyes suffocating me,
Now I must give what I keep,
Ending love what needed to be free.
Lilly F 6d
I annoy my friends when I talk to them about him
and I don't blame them because I make no sense
the light on the other side of this tunnel looks rather dim
these confusing feelings are too immense
to be placed on their shoulders to carry
"I don't have feelings for him but I'm mad when he's with her"
I can tell they get stressed as my eyes get cherry
but I still deny wanting back whatever him and I were

but I don't want him back, it's simple don't you see?
I also don't want him with another though
I know I'm drinking from a bitter cup of tea
and I'm being selfish, I know, I know
but I don't really care anymore
to my friends, I'm sorry for annoying you
and for making your ears sore
because even I don't even understand, why I don't like them two

I do not want you to be the reason I lose control of my feelings again
Should I go on that date?
s i r May 11
Truth is the threathening feeling of bile up your throat after a night of drinking,

And the butterflies in your belly as she dances with you in the moonlight and spins you off your axis.

Truth is the sound that pierces the silence when you look into her eyes.

It is harsh and painful like trying to reach the surface but the water never ends,

And the feeling of betrayal when she's slipping of your routine right after being told time would stand still.

Isn't she beyond you? And yet you continue to swim.

But truth is truth. And she is beautiful, that you know. She is free.

You have only one life,
but at the same time
you live forever.

I know, it's confusing,
no, you won't understand it.
So enjoy your life,
don't try to be clever.

This tether, to a dark ocean bed
pulled taut by the weight
attributed to this endeavour.
currents slicing
across sea floor
unanchored me.

lifeline

floating on the surface
upon water that might only be calmed
with time.
Jane Mar 18
What if I don't want to be obvious?
Lies can catch up to you.

I think we're all kids at heart,
that's why I still laugh at unnecessary squawking
I wonder if they'll remember that
while they crucify me

Some people think they can weasel
their way into your mind
They're conniving, planning-
just waiting for you to plummet from heaven,
All the while under the guise of righteousness
I don't blame them though,
isn't that in our dna?

This is probably a statue; caring is a statue.
we presumed it possessed a pulse-
when it's only a chunk of rock.

A sailor pulled me from the waves,
but I never really wanted to stop swimming
random poem lol, feel free to tell me what you think
Sammy Mar 6
in the moment before the sun rises,
the soft, warm glow creeping onto your face,
quiet Whispers float around my ears.
Whispers of love, hate, and that which is in between.
i wonder aloud,
"are we In Between? where do we fall?"
you take my cold hands in yours, and,
bathed in the golden honey light as we are,
you tell me that we are In Between.
but, you add, you're right where you need to be.
where else would you go?
when you stop and think, where is
In Between?
there's always a high and low,
big and small,
light and dark.
no matter where you are,
you're always In Between two.
now, you Whisper as you fade away,
dream away those dreams of perfection.
I'll always be here.
first poem y'all, not that great but that's what practice is for
