Those times I would write poems and submit for publications,they were all rejected, but now i have found my thing  And I am living a Superstar lifestyle , my name buzzing everywhere. Poems that have been rejected are the ones now trending

Thank you HP family for making me a better poet. Many love to you all. To all who comment, love, like my poems you are the real Superstars
My first poem in 2021
Cardboard-Jones Oct 2020
Truth under my breath
But nobody can hear the words.
I’m thinking out loud, what’s keeping me alive?
What’s keeping my mind occupied on Mars,
Fickle friends and fast cars?

I’m too nervous to
Stand in the room, waiting for the world to swoon.
I don’t see none of my regrets
And I don’t need anybody’s help.

A puppet on the string,
Control everything.

I don’t need any more regrets.
And I don’t see anybody’s help.
But I don’t see anybody else.
Just mute me.
Alexis Janelle Sep 2020
He glisten then i'm blind,
Illuminates me by his lies,
I took a picture from a wrong glance,
And then called him mine,

This love flashes before my eyes,
They warned me about him,
But he took a sweet spot in my heart,
And I let him in,

And i thought he's a Superstar,
Riveting in the middle of a ball,
And I am a wide-eyed girl,
Opened my doors,

But he is no a Superstar,
His darkness were masked,
By his riveting looks,
And i  let myself be deceived.

hey pete!
by michael r. burch

for Pete Rose

hey pete,
it's baseball season
and the sun ascends the sky,
encouraging a schoolboy’s dreams
of winter whizzing by;
go out, go out and catch it,
put it in a jar,
set it on a shelf
and then
you'll be a Superstar.

Note: Pete Rose was my favorite baseball player as a boy; this poem is not a slam at him, but rather ironic commentary on the term “superstar.” Keywords/Tags: Pete Rose, baseball, season, star, superstar, sun, sky, schoolboy, dreams, winter, spring, summer, Cincinnati Reds, Big Red Machine, Elite Eight, Charlie Hustle, Hit King
He carries the gravity of push and pull
he controls the lights and dreams
he's the sound of night,
he's the silhouette in room.

He manipulates the mist
he don't know if he'll be back again
tell me if he'll going to save the day
because the story of love will end at night.

He could be the superman
in story line
he could be a superstar
he controls the space and time
he carries his light and shadow
tell me, how it hurts when he looks at you.

He could carry, manipulate
and control everything
but there's only thing
that he can't do...

The stage is set..
The red Light's on ,
The condition is right ,
It's time to shine my son !
The time has come,
The world is ready ...
Superstar Welcome home,
Do them ***** !

Become a sensation,
In you a star is born ...
You are my inspiration,
Blow the poetic horn,
The world's watching...
Just keep going !
Don't stop creating,
Keep up the grinding...
Maybe from the onset,
You will be wrong..
Don't you ever get upset,
Like kunta Kanti,be strong !

Flex your muscle...
And keep pushing ,
And own your hustle .
Like a scribe ,keep writing ...
Stay active,
Keep grinding,
Remain calm but be passive,
Some day you gonna make it !
Don't wait ,
keep pushing..
Don't ever Quit !
keep writing ...
Make yourself at home ,
Poetic Avatar ...
The time has come
Mr ball-pen superstar !

he strums
the steel strings
of his guitar
akin to the strings
of my heart
     that I wear on my sleeve

he echoes
quiet unspoken
memories
through a
loud medley of
melodies
     that his heart and soul bleed

so in time
for him
I'll voice and play
to reach out
and give back
to him someday
     like how he reached out to me
For Meg,
and how she wants to reach Day6/Jae
through her guitar.

she plays so well! check her guitar covers out: @everyjae on twt :)

Its a Sunday
Let's see the Sun
But what of if
You do not shine
Does it mean
You can't see the sun
Or you're too dull to shine
No,you are simply
A rising star
The one that shines
When the sun is asleep
Talents are different
But soon your trail
Shall shine like diamond
Who said"for you to shine you have to do what others do"simply be you and leave a trail.
I never thought that a three second eye contact
Could rock my world like this
I just wanted you to notice me
It was never my intention to fall
I don't know where I lost control
Must have been somewhere between your smile and the way you dance

You have marked my notebook
But your smile left a mark on my heart and mind too
You are everywhere I go
And everyone I see
Take my heart with you
I don't need it without you
