Love, basic as it is, let's start my free writing  journey with that. I find love as passionate and intimate. We think of it as this moral and necessity that we MUST have in life. But is it really needed to feel something? Is it like e-cigarettes where I need it in my life every day?
I find that love and being love is sometimes overrated but worth it when you find the right person and cant stop smiling when you see them, but I guess that  makes me bipolar then. I find love as a word containing the same power as someone using the N-word, you tell someone you love them and it's as if it brings back bad memories that can never leave your mind. I'm remembering her, I smiled every time I looked at her face, I'd literally do anything for her, wrote her a heartfelt message for her special day, but somehow I get cut off  like if I'm hanging from a cliff and you pushed my hand off the ledge. We look at this as ****** up and not worth your time, but there's always a reason for everything no matter how stupid or understandable it may be, love hurts This wretched word, feeling, emotion makes you want to spin through the whole world getting a rose from each country for this person, or it makes you want to dive sixteen feet underground into a casket to never see the light of day ever again since this person can't accept what you are offering. The other thing about love I hate is when people don't put away their ego's for you. Do you really have to be that stuck up and audacious when you know there's some type of spark? I move on trying to reconsider love and what it has to offer, but now what else in this perilous   affair will come my way? Love makes me feel sick to the brain, at times I can't get this person out my head. but other times I'm just silent and dying on the inside with no one to talk to because everyone has their own problems and lives to care about. So everyone facing issues in love, just know that being bipolar and keeping your ego is no the way to go. They say you must change to get someone but what's the point of individuality then? Love is not for everyone, but there is somehow someone for everyone in this small, audacious, egotistical world. Just know I luv you ~Aero
I know its not exactly a poem, but this is a piece that my audience found insightful. What do you think?
Static begins to swarm inside me,
Scratching,
As panic erodes my veins,
Numbing,
As I,
Drop,
Knees shaky as they kiss the floor,
I'm screaming, calling, reaching for you

Why are you weeping?

Found, ****** with tears,
Shaking,
Realizing it's not me you're afraid of,
Smeared now,
Tap, tap, tap,
She's back

Distorted, run by fear, she is me,
Yet no,
She's younger, paralyzed in time unwillingly,
Coming back to warn me,
I've been here before.
She's in control,
Watching,
Says once more, I need you to know,
You've been here before.

PTSD, you see,
It runs me,
Yet PTSD goes by she,
Don't be afraid by she, is me,
And you know me,

Right?

Did you mean to
Start this little thing
Did you mean to
Join two broken souls
Did you mean to
Make me see you
Did you mean to
Make me like it
Did you mean to
Intrigue me like this
Did you mean to
Run through my mind
Did you mean to
Keep me up all night
Did you mean to
I hope you did
How can I get out of this mess
This mess called myself
Breathing but not living
Content yet unsatisfied

The heart beats but it doesn't feel
Filled up but empty
Calling yet rejecting
It forgives but resents

The mind speaks but it never talks
Accepting yet rebelling
Praising yet cursing
It understands but refuses to

A liar
A contradiction
A paradox
That's what I am

Night- When I love being in your arms
Day- When I wake up and realize you are 300 miles away

Dark- When I can pretend you are here next to me
Light- When I see nothing but empty space

In my Head- We are not with each other
In Reality- We were never split apart
Zane Smith Sep 25
I have been
down and confused.
feeling things
I used to
be used to.
it had become
a normal
but now,
it's new again.
feelings of guilt
for missing memories,
because the past
can't come back.
I don't miss the people
I miss the places
I miss the laughs
I miss the late nights
I miss the stupidity
the vulnerability.
Zane Smith Sep 25
I have the urge to start over
to throw everything away.
tell me why some days
it's impossible to get dressed,
to get out of bed.
tell me why I want
to throw my phone in the ocean
to delete social media.
tell me why my best friend
isn't home yet
it's been over a year.
Tell me why my life feels
so put together
yet
so far away
where am I going?

Girls These Days ...
Are So ... Confused ... ???
  
They Seem To Be ...
In ... " Alices' Shoes " ... !?!
  
YES ... " Wonderland " ... ?!?
  
Well ....
I'll Be ... ****** ... !!!
Before I Fall .........................................
  
Into The Hands ...
of A Girl Whose Life's A ...  
  
........ " Sham" .......
  
Saying ... One Thing ...
But Doing ... Another ... ?!?

RUSHING Home ...
To Watch ... "Big Brother" ... !!!!!
  
Girls Like THESE ... !!!
Should NOT BE ... Mothers ... !!!

Because Their Child ...
Will Surely ... SUFFER ... !!!!!
  
Suffer FROM .............................
Her ... " Confusion " ... ?!?
  
Come On Girls ...
I'm ... NOT The One ... !!!!!
  
Mess With Me ...
And You'll Be ...  

... " STUNNED " ... !!!!!
  
NOT With ... Violence ...  
Or A .... " Gun " .... !!! ....
  
But With ... "THIS" ...  

Simple ... " Wisdom " ...
  
WAKEY WAKEY ... !!!
  
"Rise and shine" ...
Face The World ...
and Do What's Right ... !!!
  
DON'T Get ... "Trapped" ...  
In ..... "Your Mirage" ..... !!!!

Or ... A World ....
of ... " Tarot Cards " ...
  
See Yourself ...
For Who ... YOU ARE ... !!!
  
Don't Do Things ...
That You'll ... REGRET ... !!!
Like ... JUMPING IN ...
A ... STRANGERS Bed ... !!!!!

Make ... A STAND ...
And ... STICK TO IT ... !!!!!
  
Instead of S P R E A D I N G ...
THOSE ... WET LIPS ... !!!!!
  
DON'T ... Get VEX ... !!!
or ... Get UPSET ....
Because ... " CONFUSION " ...
RULED .... Your Head .... !?!
  
"Yeah, but you,
were making moves !!!"
  
"So were you, which goes to prove,
you were wanting me to woo !
Come on now, did I force you,
to come and sleep, in my bedroom ?"
  
"No, but now I feel abused !
We moved to fast !
I've thought it through,
and don't think that,
I'm right for you !!!"
  
"Okay, that's cool,
but, let me prove
something to you,
we kissed and stuff,
and then we hugged,
but, when I said,
we should get up
you put me in,
a tight armlock ?
Now you're saying,
you wanted to TALK ?!?
It seems you have
some things to sort
inside your mind.
Take that walk
I'll give you time,
but, don't complain
if I refrain, from letting you,
confuse my brain !
Figure out, what it is you need,
then come back, and talk to me.
Otherwise, let's both be free,
to be with, who we want to be !
But, don't be playing, games with me
My name's Big Virge, not Monopoly !"
Life to me, is not a dream
Talk is cheap, but, actions speak.
So, stop your talk, and walk the walk !"
Don't kiss me, on our first date !
and change your mind, the very next day ?"
Come on now,  give me a break !
Such confusion, breeds delusion,
and a premature conclusion !"
  
"I don't know you !!!
You don't know me !!!
You may be right ?
but let's wait and see.
Let's take some time,
the date went fine !
It's not my fault,
you crossed the line !
What can I say ?
I'm a **** guy !
Who'll give you lows,
as well as HIGHS !  
Every couple,
has their troubles !
and sometimes, yes,
fall down and stumble,
but, getting up,
is part of the fun,
and helps reduce,
our confusion"
  
"Opposites attract,
like, white and black
I suggest, you remember that !"
  
"But, firstly you,
must face the facts,
about the things,
you sometimes do,
Then I can, make love to you !"
  
Those Are Words ...
On Which To ... CHEW ...
  
Take Some Time ...
And ... Think It Through ...  
And Then ...  You Won't Be ...
  
So ....
  
...  " Confused " ... ?!?
Written about a woman, who was also a poet !

So, maybe the confusion came from that factor, as much as anything else !

However, this was written with a smile on my face, when I thought of the CRAZINESS that happened within days of us engaging in let's say, intimacies .... !!!!!

A ... " PEACE FILLED State " ...  
  
So ...  
Let Me Ask You THIS ...  
  
... " What Will It Take ? " ...
It was the situation in New Orleans at the time, that inspired this. The pitiful response, and lack of any kind of urgency to help the poor, angered and saddened me.

I guess people should be thankful it wasn't the current president managing the situation, now THAT would be depressing !

Not that Mr. Bush proved himself to be of a more compassionate breed, in the slightest !
