The saying is always
"A thousand times yes."

But a million is so much more.
someone date me
I know that you love me
It is so plain to see
You are not still contemplating
Yet somehow I am still waiting
Oh, how I wish to impart
This beloved phrase of the heart
A sweet thing you say
A look you convey
Three words come to mind
Yet I have opined
Although I may burst
That you should be first
And with more patience instead of haste
The sweeter I know those words will taste
Jacob Parnell Jan 29
These days, I spend my lazy days coming up with phrases to say.
A delay is to wait.
So what am I waiting for?
A torn deliverer departs saying life is an art form.
Sworn to protect his endeavors.
Swift and as light as a feather.
The blue embarks to make his mark on this world
in
due
time.
So I wait, and I wait out the hate this country has torn into.
Pandora's box locks from the outside.
I'm not hiding, I'm living in plain sight.
In
due
time.
We all wait until the day turns bright enough to ponder more.
We have all fought the night enough in excellent form.
In
due
time.
We will rise as a nation guided by unspoken voices.
Verses and choices.
In due time.
We stay alive till the coming of dawn.
That's just fine.
In due time.
Generations wait belated unto their fate.
This is our time.
We rise up.
Uncriticized this is our time.
We rise up.
One as a nation.
Two as a people.
Three as a crazed individual on a soapbox.
Four as the children with smallpox.
Five as the ones who just try to stay alive every night when the light shines too dim.
Six as the individuals who act on a whim.
Seven as those who pray to get to heaven but work all their days at a seven-eleven.
Eight.
Those
who
wait.
Well wait no more.
We are the infinity score.
The war torn worlds go down when they sleep and so as not to make a peep we plan in silence. Abstracting violence with peace. We sit in hollowed out churches without verses because if we speak the truth the worlds seams will undo, that's power.
One day will speak for hours for us.
Those of us who are meek and delirious.
Still stand proud.
Yes I'm loud.
Say into the light signs.
Stay until the night time.
Weigh it all and that's mine.
Yes I'm loud.
Take the voices. Reiterate the choices. Learn it through osmosis until we're comatosis.
Gleam what we mean when you read all these words.
Your life is better for it.
Just a phrase as it turns.
Abstract poem about certain dreams that I've had.

I used to write with words
Embodying my individual emotions
In splotches of paint
Now
I write with phrases
Stringing words together to paint a picture
No longer simply splatter paint
...
But a collage
They say "let bygones be bygones."
But How could one let go of a clock
To which one referred to—time.
Though I believe in forgiveness
History as is—is a tree
For a point cannot be seen—
Without salts in the seas.

It's my own fault
For allowing myself to feel
Amanda Mar 2018
It has all been said,
a line, a word, a dull phrase,
yet you're everything.

I just wanted to tell you that no matter what, no matter what people tell you, you are so **** perfect. Maybe you feel awful and that this is just a lie someone says to make you feel better, but dear, you are perfect in every way. You are perfect when you cry, you are perfect when you lie, you are perfect when you are angry, you are perfect when you scream. You are perfect in the moments when people shouldn't be perfect. That's what makes you so special.
