Stars don't twinkle
They incinerate


Not the weak heat of sticks and light

But the thousand year power of the burning elements

The creator of light
Old and powerful
Not a shine, but a cry of light

So darling
when the stars twinkle to you
they are roaring.
It just seems you don't know the
power
of
the
Stars.
Hi, this is my first poem! I'm excited to share with you!
S.H.E

You forget
I'm a girl,
you forget,
I'm a S.H.E..
you forget ...
I'm a.. me
you forget
I'm a woman.....
Be a gentleman
Don't be so ready
to lose your patience with me.
Remember to sometimes walk gently.
Don't be so readily available to slaughter me.  
Just because I may seem a little flimsy
sometimes you just need to take it easy.
In the morning when you say your brain is thinking so clearly.
Okay then take it easy remember that
I'm not perfectly always me..
There are moments that I'm selfishly being me and there are times I need you to approach gently less selfishly patiently more gently.
I may be a S.H.E (Emotionally) so let me be.

I am a sculptor.
An artist.
My masterpiece? Myself.

Every curve, layer of paint,
Every shadow or exposed face,

All cultivated. Planned.
Incorporating all I know
And that which I do not know

Yet.

But you have only a picture.
A photo.
An image from just one angle.

And all that you recognise is
A flat
Two dimensional
Processed scrap of film.

sometimes I feel like a failure
Whenever I feel like I like someone
They show no interest
I always end up feeling like nothing
I think the more I get rejected
The more I listen to the devil on my shoulder
Instead of the angel
But when one boy shows interest
I abandon the devil
Yet it only lasts for so long
when it ends the devil on my shoulder says
"I told you to never fall for anyone ever again or you'll get hurt"
and somehow I feel comforted when I hear that
I feel the little devil sitting on my shoulder
is always there for me
The more I feel
The more you see
Difference has been set
but love comes to you and me
The less we talk
The more we hate
shared memories begin to fade
The less I talk
The more I think
love was never ours
efforts go down in the sink.

you were by my side
but i couldn't see you there
all i can see is your pride
and myself driven to despair

i hate to admit that it was agonizing
but i knew i'll love you til death
even if i heard the thunder blazing
i've fallen to the sound of your breath

there was so much i want to see
so much skies that've turned grey
there was so much doubt i want to free
but you didn't even bother to stay

i've seen your faces
i've heard your lies
i've felt your punches
i've smelt your fumes
i've loved your scars
i've been on your worsts

i've done everything for you
you told me it wasn't enough
you want more
and more
even more

then i gave you more
and more
even more
everything left in me

i wish i could see you once again
you that didn't have more
but me
it's never enough.

you don’t owe anybody
                        emotionally,
            other than
yourself.
had this poetry blog for around 6 years now.
For 2019, I’ve decided to start a poetry page on Instagram and would luvv the support of any of my HP readers
It’s taken me a while to take this step, and I’d love for you to come with me—@birduntitled
Never mistake kindness for weakness
or love, as a commodity
A happy holiday season for all, Merry Christmas, Happy new year,  Happy Mawlid el-Nabi , Happy Hanukkah, Have a super Solstice, a Great Zarathosht Diso, and last but not least, a terrific Rohatsu! be kind to each other, it goes a long way ;D
Laying In the arms of the
one you love magical moments, Oh how wish every one those memorable
moments
If somehow could have
made them last longer
especially now she's no longer with
me
So much more time could
I have given Helen If only
seen what lay ahead, so
sad there Is no going back to
put things right, no second chances
So much more time I would have Helen If Only I'd seen what lay ahead
