I think to be thoughtful
I speak to be heard

I write to decipher
The truth in my words.

I smiled to ensnare you
I laughed to secure

You slipped through the trap
That I built to procure

I kissed to consume you
I hugged to enfold

My arms close on nothing
You're no where to hold

I writhed to entrance you
I clutched you to keep

Now the place where I hold you
Resides in my dreams.

I write so you'll read this
My hand pens the truth
All that I've written,
I've written for you.

I barely know you,
Yet my words just spill out with no filter.
I want you to just see me,
Without a mask and a little off kilter.

Crushes are weird.

love generates kindness
trust generates peace
open hearts breed understanding

Truth will forever be like grains of sand

seeping through the cracks of your hand

Sometimes the answers are always meant to be out of your reach...
Kody dibble Mar 2015

Time is whatever you manage to make,
Day in day out, we learn from that which takes it,

To silence the fears that make us,
Feel the hatred that takes us,

Continue, in vain,
Like gestures and coins,
Tossed in the great beyond,

Dimes and platelets of greener days,
Rendered the vision of maximum guilt,
Fortrusions for gone the desert a piece

Everyone seeks it
Yet people scarcely
Use it
It is manipulated
By the world we

You've been in love with every girl you meet
You've managed to get a heartache with them too
When will you realize that their love is not concrete
And you getting hurt is nothing new

Emily Townsend Jan 2016

Lying makes a placeholder for the inevitable truth. The lie will become the truth, as a rectangle can be squeezed back into a square.

Maya Veilleux Oct 2014

we all seek the truth
walking around blindly
but we cannot find the truth
until we find ourselves

my first poem:)

Trusting you is not hard.
The rest of the world, now, that’s a different matter.
But I trust you, as I trust the Sun to rise,
Feel free to hide.
Sometimes words fail us,
We cannot find the truth within.
Afraid, we feel unworthy,
Our need is overwhelming,
Crippled with self-doubt, words betray us,
But our hearts are as honest and true as the shining moon.
Fear not, I will always be here.
Sometimes I hide behind the clouds
But I will re-emerge to warm you,
Take heart, I would trust you with my life.

Young is the flesh that your body may be
Frail is the mind of a body that cannot see.

Answers are all I need
Weeks I have suffered
Verbal abuse, mental, emotional abuse
I just want answers
I know there are many of you who have them
I know
I don’t care of the consequences
If I have hurt someone, I will apologize
I will admit I was wrong
I can do it
I just want answers
I want the truth
Is that too much to ask??

Is it really to much to ask to have someone speak the truth to me, than around me. So many games, I do not know what is reality and what is fiction.....please
George Krokos Sep 2015

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth is what the law demands
but then the law is based upon the truth by which it issues its own commands.
The truth is based upon Reality where there can't be any idea of falsehood,
Reality is in fact the Absolute or Supreme Being that is really all Godhood.
