Address a letter to noone ever
And send it on it's way
Into the gloom of another well packed bag
To be carried out and then whisked away

Let your focus not fall on the other
Let the falsehood, the penmanship
And all of the subtle friendlessness
Be mailed into the distant future
Far far away

Just address a letter to no one ever
And alone forever you'll ever stay
Just here laughing at myself. Me and my redundant ways. Lolz
Hands that only reach for you when you turn to leave, whispers that only say your name when you turn up the music and shut the world out...love that only rears it's head in their hearts when you give up on feeling anything beyond hunger; such is the fleeting nature of man. Noah_arkenswagg
Renhui 2d
Ancient Greek philosophers state that the world is
Composed of four elements
-- Earth, water, air and fire
Ancient Chinese thinkers say the world is
Made up of Wuxin or five elements
-- Metal, wood, water, fire and earth

Modern quantum physicists echo
And say the universe is mysteriously bound
By atoms and subatomic particles
As if in a gigantic bowl
Of quantum gumbo soup!

If we are all energy
What makes us organically beautiful?
Instagram selfies, luxury clothes and sexy figures?
What makes us organically powerful?
Physical strength, piles of money and millions of Twitter followers?
What makes us organically happy?
Endless laughs, constant highs and numerous lovers?

Ah do elements, atoms and particles
Fields, waves and vibrations care about those?
If not, what is the secret formula for all?
What is the one word that is behind it all?
"Mountains are mountains
Mountains are not mountains
Mountains are just mountains"
Said the Zen Master.

A drop of water belongs to the ocean
A music note is most pleasant to the ear
When in concert with other notes
We humans feel most vibrant most whole
When in harmony within ourselves
And in harmony with the Universe --
Ah "harmony" is the word!

You and i

this one is for a special girl
"When you are loved by an artist, you are immortal," I paint the tips of your fingers with deep blue, and the ocean forms with a movement of your hand. Pretty, so very endlessly pretty. You make the elements of earth become even more endearing.

"You live in their every masterpiece, live in their every breath," I draw finishing touches on the edges of your mouth - that I want to kiss every moment - and shadows of despair form in the words that you let out. But they sound pretty, so very endlessly pretty. You make every word in the dictionary become even more meaningful.

"And when you hurt them, you live in their memories forever." I sew words into your skin and you wince in pain but you don't stop me.
Thank you for making this easier for me.

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 naked
in the sheets of your bed.
I left covered in your lipstick
and the smell of your perfume.
You surely dominated my mind.

Here I sit broken-hearted
tried to shit, but only farted
Then one day I took a chance
tried to fart and shit my pants.
Saw it on pinterest

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!
