A dry leave reminds us the past
glory of the tree,
in the same way a lonely heart
tells us the days of love full
of joy and happiness in the past.

He’s like the tide
A surfer must enjoy his ride
Dive in and swim, revering him
Forgetting what’s outside
His waves are wondrous, warm, enchanting
Adventure filled in all their crashing
The ocean though
Has rules you know, and those it cannot break
For as I try to fight the tide
I find it’s my mistake
No Siren’s Song
No tug along
Could change his constant wake
As good as it may feel to me
To bask amidst his splendor
His salty sea breath smothers me
Unable to surrender
He’s faithful as he’s always been
Unchanging, strong, and genuine
It’s me, you see
Too wild and free
To float in him forever

Does he love me?
I think so
But oceans know their bounds
So as I go beyond his flow
The follow earthly sounds
Perhaps he’d like to follow me
To soar the mountain peaks
To leave the sea, dance blissfully
With sunlight on his cheeks
Perhaps he would create with me
a world of our design
Alas he knows that sea is sea
And he can never follow

Does he love me?
I know so
Although he can’t come with me
To sandy shore, find earth’s galore
***’ he is he – part of the sea
Entrapped by gravity

All gone now
and you're nothing
but a wound
cracking open
at 3 am- unsolicited

-Farewell, my beloved! Is there a farewell at all?
Every kiss you blew me
was a kiss goodbye
Every inch of skin
that caressed yours
was a vow
I bestowed
to love you
forever and ever more.
And the wine in my veins
says shut up! He's gone
And the cigarette smoke
takes you away from me
And all these men I toy with
they are nothing like you.

I've missed the train
of my thoughts
I sit back
and gaze at them
from afar
taking you away
I call out your name
but there are no words
I am stuck in nirvana
or else-
in sheer garrulous void
without you.

Who opened this wound anyway?
I'm sure it was open
from the scratch
I just couldn't feel it
bleeding me away.

Only a caress away
but I'm a *****
in your eyes
a ******* ***** *****
with no feelings
I can defend
my dignity only
before the strike
of midnight
that breaks my heart
spills my ***** feelings
all over my face
I love you
but it's dark at this hour
and you're too ******* blind.
I have been inactive on this website as of late, yet I have been scribbling poems here and there, you know, in notebooks past midnight, on my phone at work. Today, I came acros this one and boy it hit close home.

You want to fix everything...but do you know what's broken?
Poppy Rusert Feb 2021
I loved the wrong man,
Who never understood me.
I accepted all his flaws,
And he dares not to stand by me.

I got played by his lying heart,
He keeps hurting my soul and mind,
Still, I am a fool,
To stand by him by any kind.

I know I should have walked away
But his pretty face begged me to stay,
Everybody said I will regret this later,
But I trusted him, no matter.

Why does it hurt so much?
Why does it pain to death?
Why does it hurt to love the wrong person?
The prince, Who broke my faith?
Emotionally disturbed

i know we’re just friends
i KNOW that.
but... what if?
what if suddenly our hugs turned into kisses?
what if our midnight meetings meant something more?
what if i told you how i felt?
and what if you felt the same?
would you break her heart? or mine?
hey, i’m new so i would love some feedback :)

I´m obsessed with you,
Obsessed with the toxicity
Obsessed with you leaving me
Obsessed with the unknown

I´m obsessed with the dreams about you
The scenario´s i´m creating in my head
Obsessed with the urge to talk to you
Obsessed with the desire to see you.

I´m into you and I always wanted you,
You cutting me off, made me even want you more,
And I´m obsessed with all of you.

I´m obsessed with your dominance,
I´m obsessed with how you know what you want,
I´m obsessed with the way you flirt,
The way you have your life put together.

Will this obsession ever be over?
It´s a question for me
And a uknown mystery for you...
It´s hard. It´s been two months and it´s so hard to cut someone off you were building a future with. It became unfinished business, cause the relationship never ended. He just left, without explanation, without discussing, just disappeared and moved on. My life crushed, but at the same time, I didn´t want it to end. How can something so beautiful end so cruel. My pain is still there, it hurts so much. But I will get over it one day. As long as we keep the faith, faith in humanity & god.
There are alot of things in my mind
Very occupied, but you I find
It seems just three magic words
That my lips can't afforf

You manage to make me smile
Even though you seem to cry
You always light up my day
And your magic light leads my way

But at times it seems you try
Not to please, but make me sad
Doing this makes me die
But I'm sorry if I made you mad

Most times it breaks my heart
Just to discover that, there's no we
And all there is, is that
We were never meant to be
For the one who first caught my heart
