Trying Poetry
nicetomeetyou Apr 2021
Poetry is vivid
Nature, leaves, rivers
So when a writer
Sits down for a lesson,
They are the notetakers
And Mother Nature is the teacher.

A Poet
nicetomeetyou Feb 2021
A poet walked
Along a river.

A poet was
Inspired.

A poet took out
Pen and paper

A poet started to
Write.

[blinded]
nicetomeetyou Mar 2021
they were born like -- this
a hand on a walker
they are hard to miss
but hey, at least they try;
while we -- with both eyes
and we -- capable,
and shall we be the blinded?

Scream
nicetomeetyou Mar 2021
Clear as the sky
And ****** as the moon
You hear her high
Scream.

A bolt of light
And a sliver of burn
You hear her bright
Cry.

Her hurt can be seen
Her hurt will be felt
You hear her keen
Yell.

She whispers too stop this
nicetomeetyou May 2021
In these starry skies:
You see those two stars, touching?
'Cause that's you and me.

what love means now
nicetomeetyou Mar 2021
in childhood ages -
love is "ewww"
and cooties

in older ages -
still young
love is a secret
and cannot be sung

and now this
what does love mean now?
someone to care
someone to hug
someone to bear with
through the seasons?

it's so hard to understand

wave
nicetomeetyou Mar 2021
a wave
it crashes down on me
as I sway
into your arms

a wave
had me drenched
in my unquenched
crave for you

my loveliness
let this wave press
gently onto us
nicetomeetyou May 2021
To kiss;
Hold my chin up with your warm fingers
No, I don't want you to
Let go of what we have.
You should definitely
Let your tender lips touch mine, and
I'll never
Push you away.
I have to say, that soon will I
Fall into my (love)sick self
After you go away,
I'll throw this love
in the bin.
backwards and forwards, you see?
nicetomeetyou May 2021
i really love sleeping
because i literally get 10 hours
of peace and silence and dreams
and i don't need to think because i can't
so i try to tuck into my covers as soon as possible

Dream
nicetomeetyou Feb 2021
Is life only this dream,
where you live through it
Just to feel the dream
But end up wasting it?

Because now,
I want to wake up.

Sugary Lemons
nicetomeetyou Feb 2021
Your words lay on me
like sour lemons
So hard I can't breathe
You left me in ruins
And then you pretend
To help me up
Are you a sugar-coated lemon
Or am I only falling again?

Her Words
nicetomeetyou Feb 2021
Has she ever spoken before?
Maybe only few words,
Yes, no, yay, more
But today she opened her mouth -
Her tongue was quick,
and words flew out
"I love you"
Her first sentence.

Bookstore
nicetomeetyou Feb 2021
A faint ding
This is so quaint
As I walk in the bookstore
A summery day

The faint sounds
Shuffle, hush hush
As I look around the bookstore
An afternoon - unrushed

A faint love
My fingers brush along the shelves
As I find a book in the bookstore
This day, just for myself.

Watercolor
nicetomeetyou Feb 2021
The stroke forms
A path - a water lily
On my canvas,
I'm fascinated - the beauty
I dip my brush into the water,
And can't help but
Exclaim in joy
When I have finished yet another piece...
Because, when there was a lingering absence
Before,
I'm now filled with happiness.
nicetomeetyou Apr 2021
If you stop and look more closely
At those people you trust
Although their smiles plain on their faces
Their tempting “love” may just distort you.

Time
nicetomeetyou Feb 2021
They said, "Time will heal."
So why hasn't it healed?
Why am I still broken inside?

They said, "Time is precious."
So why did I waste it?
Why was I stupid enough to do it?

They said, "Plan your time and you will benefit from it."
So why am I a mess?
Why have I hit rock's bottom?

Time is unforgivable.

Letter to Nature
nicetomeetyou Apr 2021
“It’s twenty-twenty one
And fires are burning
And number of creatures
Dead from plastic is surging
Our world is done but
We don’t blame you.
It’s only humanity.

Love,
The Destructors”

winter love
nicetomeetyou May 2022
i met a boy last winter,
and his smile warmed my heart.
i was so sure he was The One
right from the very start...

we grew close in a matter of weeks,
as i observed him closely
his laugh, his touch,
and the smell of his hoodie...

he loved to talk,
and i loved to listen
he words were so sweet,
and i always missed him...

spring came.

the hot chocolate and blankets and snowmen came to an end.

like the snow,
my love slowly melted...

i met a boy this spring.
note:
im so sorry for not posting in a very long time, i felt like i had no motivation to keep writing. today as i was scrolling through my poems again, i suddenly realized how much i missed writing these dumb poems. so im back, and i hope i can at least write a piece every week:)

Scars
nicetomeetyou Feb 2021
Every insult
Every hurt
Every scream

A scar

Drawn on me Permanently

you have scars too.

Selfless
nicetomeetyou Feb 2021
"Sharing is caring,"
They tell me.
I listen and I understand.

"Put others before yourself,"
Some said.
I listen and I understand.

"Don't say something rude when you could compliment it instead,"
Many said.
I listen and I understand.

"Be loyal and devoted to your friends and they will do the same,"
The people said.
I listen and I understand...

I share,
I care for everything - but myself,
I fake a smile and love everything, anything
I am loyalty at its finest. I am the most devoted friend ever.
I have listened, and I have understood, and I have tried to do it.

But...
Now, I don't understand.
Why is nobody treating me the same?
Why is everybody criticizing what I do?
Why have my friends all turned against me?
I am weak and I am too gullible.
I have become selfless...
Listen and understand, but don't be gullible.

3 in the afternoon
nicetomeetyou Mar 2021
it was about 3
in the afternoon
when the wind was calm
and an airy gloom

she had smiled at him,
her,
holding books in one hand
pack in another

she looked like
perfection to him...
nicetomeetyou Mar 2021

The Void of Truth
nicetomeetyou Feb 2021
We think we don't hurt
But everything we think
Just to unhurt, we're not listening !
Either way
We only fall deeper
into the Void of Truth

Sunday Afternoon
nicetomeetyou Feb 2021
Birds atop trees outside
The sun is smiling at me
Slip on my sneakers
With jeans and a tee
Only the scent of joy
And warmth and love
I open my arms wide
Wind on my tongue...
This Sunday afternoon.

What Duct Tape Can't Fix
nicetomeetyou Feb 2021
Duct tape can't fix
a broken heart
a broken smile
a broken love

But you can fix that.

fears
nicetomeetyou Mar 2021
some fear the darkness
others fear to be alone
many fear to lose the kisses
of a loved one

and some fear to speak
some fear their regrets
few fear to be weak
but when we've dried
anxiety and lies
you can see the rainbow is here,

so don't worry for now
because sun is coming out
78 · Feb 2021
Following
nicetomeetyou Feb 2021
Don't you see that
Following, caring for
Someone who doesn't know you exist -
Makes it harder to
Accept yourself?

Realize that...
someone might be following you too.

The only two things
You've ever stolen
Are my heart

You kept my heart
And gave me the diamond

the little girl
nicetomeetyou Mar 2021
the little girl
sat at the window
last night
and in her sight
was an angel
a little girl did not know
that this angel
was her
I wanted to express how children die around the world, and this child saw this angel in her head, which was herself - trying to warn her.

The Loveliest Soul
nicetomeetyou Feb 2021
The loveliest soul
Sits with us
The loveliest soul
Is close
She tenderly holds us
In her arms of love

The loveliest soul
Awakened us
Not necessarily a she or he or it =) I only used she since it goes with the flow

Life and Death
nicetomeetyou Feb 2021
Life and Death
Were in love...
Since eternity.

Life gave Death
Infinite gifts...
And Death kept them
Forever.
The process of living and dying. We are the gifts life gives to death.

Early Love
nicetomeetyou Feb 2021
She blushes
And he does too
She clutches
The flowers he gave her

The air is warm
Even if it's raining
A love is born
Softly, gently

Smiles linger
And gibberish too
"I love you forever"
Early love.

The happiest times

That Sweet Melody
nicetomeetyou Feb 2021
Gibberish
But they sound
Like song to me
Sing it loud

Don't stop now.
A wind of notes
A fuzzy cloud

That Sweet Melody

you sang.

Laughing
nicetomeetyou Feb 2021
They think they're laughing at me
Or they're laughing with me
Or I'm laughing at them
Or I'm laughing with them.

Actually
I'm not laughing.

Fine
nicetomeetyou Feb 2021
We say it
"I'm fine", "It was fine"
"This is fine"
All the time

But we almost
Never mean it.
