Art, a smile like the one
on the face of Mona Lisa.
Curved like the waxing moon
above the sea.
Light a flame before a face
yet to be seen.
What will it prevail,
will it show once for all
a slow tilt on the smiling lips
—a curve softly locks on
a rose from the sun,
or a shadow beneath the moon?
This is a poem from my book Zero and One available on Amazon.
You laugh
Angels weep out of jealousy
Devils have no single conspiracy
Demons dancing in harmony
Men hearts go broken with no remedy
Women eyes tearing continuously
Violins break out of envy terribly
Composers have no more creativity
Music plays with no melody
Silence starts listening joyfully
Happiness laughters left in agony
Beautiful words describe nothing but misery
Tulip flowers become colorless shamefully
Believers lose their faith immediately
Infidels drop their convictions instantly
Hearts start beating rapidly
Lungs oxygenating quickly
Living ones laying listening carefully
The dead come back miraculously
The way Je laughs. Version 1.

My voice begins to creak
When we’re lying face to face
So I smile instead of speak.

But then you ask me to express
My feelings to your face --
But my voice begins to creak!

And I struggle to redress
My dumb, unbidding gaze
And so I smile instead of speak.

So then I pull you to my chest,
Pull you close enough to taste!
But feel my voice begin its creak

And leave my feelings unexpressed,
Leave my tongue within its case,
And simply smile instead of speak.

So when I link us back to breast
With arms around your waist;
It’s cause my voice begins to creak
That I smile instead of speak.
My stab at a villanelle. Any feedback welcome.

These are the words I would never tell you,
Your smile, your eyes, your hair, that is just a plus to you, but your personality is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. I thought after one year, the crush would be over but I was wrong.
7 years later and I'm still completely and utterly in love with you. You're the person I look for when I walk in a room, you're the person I can mess with their hair and wouldn't care. You're the person that I can throw a pencil at and make you pick it up and wouldn't get mad. You're the only man I trust, and you know how much I don't trust them. But I know I can tell every single secret but one and you wouldn't tell another soul. When you told me you believed in me, a piece of my broken heart went into it's place like a puzzle piece.
Wasn't sure if I wanted to publish this or not but fuck it.


The secret I can't tell him is that I love him :)

You wait for me in the night,
gliding through my room.
Hiding among the darkness here,
you've eaten up the moon.

Sitting in your stool,
you've taken out your tools.
Tonight's the night we duel,
as you unwind your spools.

I've felt the thread you have,
and all the needles you carry.
Let my mouth settle first,
this operation is quite scary.

My smile seems so real,
you'd never know how to feel.
If I tell you how I deal,
the way you've kept my lips sealed.

Now I stare into the dark,
laying in my bed.
You walk towards the light,
as you spin the thread.

In and out, in and out,
you've covered my whole mouth.
Now my pain is full of doubt,
now it holds no sound.

The needle pierced into my lips,
your hooks stuck in my cheeks.
Make sure you don't spill too much blood,
I'm already very weak.

Once again you made my smile fake,
another day you've chose to take.
My mind's begun to cry and shake,
this carpet you step on keeps me awake.

I can hear you walking,
tapping your feet away.
You're a real life nightmare now,
but you turn to dust at day.

Hide your work inside your files,
you've claimed that you'll play here awhile.
You made another victim's profile,
another human you've forced to
smile-
Have you ever been forced to smile through anger?
This is what the poem's for.
All feedback is welcome and appreciated

I was blessed with a smile that could convince you of anything,
But cursed with a tongue that could never make you stay.
oh, how I hate you
