I wish that you loved me
but I know that you don't.
I wish your heart felt
something it won't.

I wish I had your attention,
your protection and time.
I wish there would come a day
when I could call you mine.

I wish that you wanted me
for more then just ***.
I wish I was the type of woman
a man like you respects.

I wish you could see things
the way that I do...
and felt all I feel,
and knew the things I knew.

I wish I made you happy
and fueled your inner fire.
I wish I were the one
whom you most desire.

I wish we could grow old
and grey together.
I wish I knew the meaning
of the word 'forever'.

I wish that you to loved me
the way that I love you...
But wishes are for fools
'cause they never come true.
Just a stupid little poem...
Spenser Bennett Feb 2016
It's sunny in the snow blown meadow of the poor man's soul.
Even when it's cold the sun still glows.
Too bright. Foolish enough to still be bold.
Silvana Franco Feb 2018
Try as I might, I couldn’t stay away;
Your eyes and vibes and rainbow light
Bade my restless heart to stay,
And gave me feelings I couldn’t fight.

Love makes a fool of men,
Or so I have been told,
But your kisses taste like honey
And your mind is solid gold,

So if loving you is foolish,
And wanting you, plain lunacy,
I’m quite alright with that my darling,
This insanity has set me free.
Cassia Oct 2018
I fell deeply in love
With a cowardly man
Who showed me his tricks
Had my heart in his hands

Then came the heartless
With his hope always late
Along came the fool
Leaving hurt in his wake

Next was the fearless
The shallow, the vain
The drunkard, the faithless
The strangely insane

Not one could know love
On the level of mine
I fell hard to my knees
While they yelled and they lied

With a foolish, sad heart
And a passion of flame
I but drown in their waters
While they sit on the bank

we're foolish lovers
living a lie

we're foolish lovers
stuck in the past

we're fools
for trying
to love each other

for we both know
we're only
fooling ourselves

we're foolish lovers
bound to regret

that we're foolishly pretending
not to love
someone else
They're both hurting, but instead of dealing with their true feelings, they unconsciously use each other to try to get over the person that broke their heart. However, what they fail to realize is that they'll never be enough for each other.

looked
            out of
                       my
                             window,
                                             watery
                 vision. droplets
                                            of water making little
                                                          ­               incisions of blurriness in my
                                                              ­      decisions. falling out of my
                                                              ­ senses,
feeling
defenseless
               could stare at these droplets racing
                      as if they were in a marathon,
                                                                ­     childhood
                                      memories.
                ­       steadily, tracing my numb digits
against the unsuspecting windowpane,
                                      droplets converge briskly,
like how you did when you left me.
                               left me for her, a better woman, apparently.
                                                             never said a word to me,
                except through the disdain in your eyes.
felt the pain shoot my brain like I was supposed to cry
                           a million nights to make you smile. felt the shame like
    I was meant to be ashamed,
                                 pinned blame.
                                                  every time I look at the rain, I'm  
                                                 reminded
                                 of your
                                                                ­  foolish games.

Thoughts are like raindrops, coming and going one at a time.

Slick grass glistened heavy
After summer showers fell before a sun
That trickled veiled toward transcendent trees
Towered on the outskirts of the demesne - It unsheathed
A pearlescent canvas for a dreamer who paints ideals;

A reader finding signs in smiles and glances
Strolling paths free of fear to free imagination;
Summoning hopes against a fresh red/orange
Backdrop, and ignoring perilous heights to cast
A thought to moments yet unlived -
This fool's masterpiece.

i want to listen to an inspirational song about a strong woman,
a woman with many battle scars,
who got over whatever i just did.

who got over it confidentally,
i just want to hear that someone relates.

but i guess no one relates to my foolishly going back to him whenever he calls,
he sticks kinves into my chest. but i will always run back.

why can't someone teach me the Art of Moving On. The Art of Forgetting You. But i guess no one is as foolsih as me.
why, o why heart? play your stupid love games on someone else, can't you see I am tired?

The words of a fool are blessed in ignorance but cursed in futility.
The words of the wise are few and expressed with humility.

Here goes my heart laid in your hands
Beating rapidly as blood drips from each vessel
I give to you all of me with no fear and lack of precaution
Take me as you will and do as you please

Unaware of your Character
Naive by choice and free will
I foolishly deny the signs of..
The lack there of

Here i am, open armed and bared heart
willing to be shredded in pieces
If they knew, they wouldn't believe this
I'm foolish, Not foolish

Complete, four wings stretched for you as an obsticle, big and ominous, they block the light of the sun as it crosses your way,
He will promise you that over walls you will go if you obey him,
Paying from the rule and standing proud with spiteful intent,
Or maybe he will make you believe to be able to shoot over the sky,
What a trecious act of misleading lies, leading to greater falsities,
The cards of fate are already dealt, do not sell your soul, do not lose,
Filth comes in many classes and ranks which cannot be conveyed,
Evil knows tricks into your heart which cannot be explained at all,
His footsteps will leave their mark on you once purgatory is served,
Burning up and feeling priceless now would simply be foolish, dull
Waiting for the cracks of a shady eternity once he breaks his promise,
Beware, the sweetest words might be a game of seduction for you,
Clouded, lost, uncertain of its outcome, struggling for the light inside,
Make another move, you won't be able to turn back, broken light finds no place in this realm of unending decisions to be made today,
You will see it is true, but then it will be far too late for realisation,
Each soul has it's given date, now as beneath the soil do you want to be laid with your records flawed, at last it comes to heaven or hell,
Will you decide now or will you delay, my precious treasure,
He will promise you wealth from amongst the heavens, to lead to poverty from the deepest hell, a cricle you won't escape from,
His promises are transient lies, all he wants is your soul which dies
Do not listen, turn away, do not become a silly devils prey

~ Umi
We keep running around
In search of something we ain’t even sure of
Hatred for no reason
War
Forgetting we are all humans

A young boy in a car
on his way to school
He was stopped by the police
come down they said
His phone rang
It’s my mom he thinks
Wanting to pick his phone from his jacket pocket
All we heard was silence afterwards
Dreams cut short
Why?
difference in color
Foolish homosapiens

A young girl at the airport
Covered in sweat
Eyes wild
Steps into the plane
Plane takes off
Boom!
Explosion in the sky
Why?
Religion
Foolish homosapiens

Why not love
Homosapiens: the name is Latin for “wise man”
Irony

I never knew
Love to be so cruel
You were my shining star
My crowning jewel
Things I learned
From love with you
They never taught in school
You broke every commandment
And every unwritten rule
From love with you
I was used as a fool
Of your desire
That unquenchable fire
Of me you said
You’d never tire
Oh my
My dismay
This dismal day
I watch as you
Walk away
I never knew
Love to be so cruel

Pulling string riddled through my mindlessness
Never took me places I should of gone

I found in the dark
Things wrought in moonlight and tears of lost lovers
How beautiful they would be
Sparkling in the light of the sun

I need you as you are
You changed.
I slept, fool that I am

I am dying now, shuddering to think
That I will live another day
It will be a day I live alone

There is nothing sadder to my soul
Than one set of footprints in the sand
The oceans claims them just the same

In the frailty of my mind
I wonder
Do dreams come true
Or nightmares found a way to sweeten themselves

Sigh

The night never ends
She just takes coffee breaks
I just break
Break up
Break apart
Drift among the uncertainty
With one hand clasping the necklace around my throat
The other holding a rose pricking my fingers

I shudder to think
So I close my mind
Running circles in my skull
Just wearing out the floor
Just wearing out the floor

She came with her friend
wanting an introduction
but I played the clown.
She never asked.

What if
I wouldn't have been
the child I was?

I may fool myself,
But dont be fooled you dont.
I mean yourself
To think you know.

Its a deeper meaning,
A closer look,
The ones-self i mean
To define as a whole.

Its not just this term
That words cant describe.
Each letter of any language,
The meaning depends on how you write.

But who gives the meaning?
And how it came to be?
If someone continuesly trys to wonder,
The mind will set to agony.

Your only comfort is your inner peace
And you constantly looking to find.
What many have died in search for,
Its only a threat and your mind will decline.

So you can't understand yourself,
Because there is no meaning in ones-self.
Its a paradox world which you only have to accept.

I feel so foolish
When my eyes see
The truth,
But still, love hearing
The lies that you speak
Like it's comforting words
To listen to
As I sleep, 
Almost feels like
A lullaby with
A wolf bearing out
Its teeth.

I am on Everest
But it’s suffocating my breath.
Wish it was like the Dream
Breathless Trek
Upbeat Track
Dirging my glory all around.  

I am on Sea
But it’s killing my gut.
Wish it was like the Dream
Featherlight walk
Suspenseful score
Wailing my glory all around.

I am on Cliff.
But it’s breaking my step.
Wish it was like the Dream
Gladiator circus
Dropping riff
Lamenting my glory all around.

Why DAFUQ do I dream
Nobody Feb 2018
They act like foolish mice lost in a maze,
with heart eyes, who only admire and send praise;
so blown away, and stuck in a dumb daze.
It’s amusing they excuse your wicked ways,
and you can gladly starve them all for days;
while smiling madly, not even fazed.
They’re dim and dull, you need entertained.
You can’t help it, you think, but don’t dare say,
to sustain your pointless little games;
that you can’t ever seem to abstain.
It’s the higher ground you need to gain.
So lure them in enduring your demented cage.
Provoke their wrath and force them to cave,
spread your foul poison to their every vein.
There’s no denying they’re enslaved,
locked tight in your chains.
