a man runs down the road
exercise brings comfort
but who needs comfort
when you have
beer
cigarettes
and a summer afternoon
Will life, angry, feel lost?
Rain love.
Stand(ing on the) earth,
sadness eyes.
Beautiful pain-man,
(for you, I) air deep wonder.
(Lost in a) broken time ride.
Storm (on)... Cry, dead heart.
Innocence?
Worth?
Sleep, summer dreams.
(I remain.)
An experiment I did with the top three lines of words on my profile. I wanted to use them, in order, to write a new poem. The words in parenthesis I have added. Honestly, it isn't bad.

Stand upright
Be rooted
String a thread above your head from the sky
And close your eyes
Relax all joints and muscles
Quiet your mind
Let a column of white light
pour in from the top of your head
      to under your feet
Feel the connection
     above and below, and all around
Feel the suppleness
     within
Breathe in the tall pines
Breathe in the fresh bamboo grove
Breathe in the pure mountain stream
One minute
Two minutes
Fifteen minutes
365 days each
This is the meditation before tai chi.  It helps with posture,  inner energy training, immune system and overall conditioning.

Stress?
Get on the treadmill, lazy.
Anxiety?
Get to sweating, lowlife.
Depressed?
Turn up the speed, slowpoke.

Avoid your other problems,
Work on your body.
It’s the literal least you can do.

Ease my wayward mind,
relieve the tension I hide.
Put aside all my pride,
address evil deep inside.
I must learn to love my life,
invite others with open arms.
I cannot do this alone,
one man can't make a home.

You're something
right out of a movie,
I still can’t believe
that you’re real.
Delicate,
you’re relative
to perfection.
Ethereal, pure.
No one around
will come close
because for me
you're the cure.
I want to protect
every fiber of you.
You are my hope.

You ran your fingers
down my arm,
whispering in my ear
all the things
that I wanted to hear
but I couldn’t get over
how good you were at this.
You were a flirt that was
borderline Rated R.
Your fingertips met
the scar on my forehead.
To put it politely,
you were directly forward
with all these gestures
of pure dalliance.
To be blunt, to be frank,
you wanted me *****
in the sheets of your bed.
I left covered in your lipstick
and the smell of your perfume.
You surely dominated my mind.

Dear HelloPoetry community,

There is a writing exercise I’ve read about that I want to test out on myself, but to do it I must require the help of all who may read this entry. To expand my horizons, all I need is for each of you to offer me just a single word. I must in turn write a poem about that word.

I will reply to every comment with the poem I create using your word. Who knows, if they are good enough then they may be published on my profile. If this is the case, then of course I will shout-out the commenters on the poems as well as follow you (if I don’t follow already) and share some of your work with my followers. I look forward to working with you!

So I hope you all will be willing to help me in this exercise, I appreciate you reading! Thank you!
I hope to read some comments soon!

i long for the body i used to have.
strong and fierce.

obsessing over my weight
and the food i consume
comes far too easily.

can't be mentally stable and healthy,
can't be happy and healthy.
