Some times, the chimes I rhyme,That begin ddeep in my minds thought,Get caught up, and jammed in blood clots,Caused by all my suicidal hollow tip shots,That leave collapsed veins, and knots,
No such thing as flawless, perfect, peerless; Only fallen varmints grubbing helpless, Guided by old books to find redemption And some vindication from above. Perfect spirits all alike and charming,
This is always where the story begin
I sometimes look at the forlorn pale moon.
Not everyone falls in love the same way, nor do they fall in love at the same time. But this is about that one fateful day when something was stolen, though not a crime; my heart, of course, but not by the book. It
Flowers at bloom Water that falls With so much room Nothing is gloom When Paradise calls Smiles Collide Trees stand tall Fun for all Till we cried Bulldozers storm in
Small child, so young, I wished for so much more Than fantasy and play to fill my dreams Those ancient tales of the great myths and lore Of feathered Pegasus by icy streams
Oh, your white gloves match perfectly with mine. And our same desirable big, round ears, To listen every melodious whine, As nature made us perfect among peers.

Caught up in a world of appearances
Ordinary. Is what we are without all the excess Is what the world looks like day to day
Under her Maybelline brand eyeliner
To me baseball is more than a game, Day in and day out i spend my constant time. With work and effort I will earn my fame, I feel as though my loss would be a crime. Nothing in life has ever felt so sweet,
The beauty of the sky, a lake of blue to own a piece of this glory beyond. God's creation gathered round He knows who, on the eve of the beginning he dawned. A forest of majestic green wonder
You can only frame me in a moment,A picutre that leads lies to the future.The time for false perfection came and went,A smiling skull without stable sutures.
Personas vacillate 'tween what is good,
As soon as I step onto pavement at The school I now attend, my smile becomes Affix'd. I must then straighten up my back And shoulders that are hunching down with weight, The pressure facing me-- they say conform
Archaic figures haunt your somnolence,
O, sea-soaked soul that rides the pother pale
Conventions of this wonderland I know
It's not unorthodox by any means
A stone is thick, a mountain ever more,
We are the cultivators Interpreters of dreams
I love to see the ships sail far along While the waves sing their same old used up song. The sea has long since lost it's sense of youth One cannot be too young and know all truth.
Behind the likes, filters, posts, and hash tags Away from the screen and into the light, There’s a girl who’d never raise her white flag. She carries her dreams around in a bag,
Poetic thoughts form onto my blank page
Deep into the untamed lands so alive the ancient forest heals a frozen mind.
I watched a bluebird on a window sill She sat there placid, calm, and singing. We shared the morning sun out in the chill, We let its rays shine down on our faces; freezing.
This poem begins with a man in fifth place, It is on Earth where people run a race. Life is a race that every man will lose,
I am from the unknown, from the sweet nector and the pillow of comfort, i am from sweaty skins all around, (rasping,damp,sun biting my skin) i am from the iris, the oak tree, birds here and there
Observing nature is odd

The storm has arrived. Draw the veil so None can escape. He is here. Escape fate? I will embrace it as it comes. Though no End in sight, I search! A thousand years late. The pieces are all set now. Only one release.
The bombs blasting all on the dreamlike ground Everyone is in hiding from the cold fear The earth shaking by the vibrative pound The chilled screams of loved ones is all I hear.
Today, a girl has sat next to my seat.She we
I close my eyes, the light of day goes dead. The whisp’ring voices prey upon my fear. They tick and click and cry and caw and toil. The daunting men do hiss inside my head,
"Are you seriously going to eat that? You already downed a can of Mountain Dew. Hey, I am only looking out for you. We simply cannot have you getting fat." " I am feeling shaky and sick.
Nobody knows this one thing about me Right here, I am a cancer survivor No please do not run away and flee
You know my name and claim to know my soul, That wickedness shows plainly in the face, Yet wicked parts do not comprise a whole. There’re secrets hidden in the empty space. Is it indeed the contents of a heart,
I wake up every morning My life kinda boring I had so much I wanted to do And one thing I wanted was loving you But now Im sitting here trying to figure out How to handle not having you as mine
If one word or phrase or sentence I say, inferno breaks loose - The townspeople flea from trembles, pulsations, and rifts in the clay. Magma to lava, from humble to greed.
'Cause just like the moon and sun
When I was a child I saw with wide eyes- Peering upward, observing in silence And covered my heart with a thick, dark guise A life that consisted of reliance
Since life is hard, to deal with love I’ve brought A mantra tried and true, and old as dirt: That of waste not, want not; date not, flaunt not; To hide yourself from love protects from hurt
As I look at them, a prequel unfolds In this aura colorblindness persists But look closer and the lines seem to bold The two identical souls coexist As time goes on, the story does begin
This beating heart aches with each breath I take, The pain is unbearable to my soul. I am drowning in this fiery lake, And this person I am is far from whole. Each day, I steal many a glance at you,
My piercing eye grows wide with horrored truth
The mountains loom above the little town. The sun sets and they cast their shadows down. The climber, still suspended from the rocks, Clips in, makes sure the carabiner locks,
Just who am I? A silent little girl?
We used to ride buggies pulled by horses, And throne-pots were in outhouses outside. Then second war raged, and Hitler’s forces. Sadly it was vain for Anne Frank to hide.
Black or White, Asian or Mexican, in the end we are all only human. It's not about the color of the skin, or even the personalities within. You can't judge a book by cover,
The retinas target the illusions,
I stand as the willow weeps soft The lovely keening sound I hate to hear She warms the hills with her boughs of kindness Gracefull she stands, a sight unparalleled A sun glares down with rays of malice
We watch this time go by And maybe we grow All we can do is sigh And say, "Where did the day go?" The Clock goes tick-tock-tick And it just makes us sick The way it perseveres
The personality Which lays deep within
Such a substance to tie them together Proposes a thought amid icy frost Such a bond between the three brothers torn Gives wistful embodiment of tears lost One screams ,in silence, the loudest of all
She felt the morning passing by, Sun lifted up in midday-sky. She heard the bluebirds start to sing, Oh what a frail, miraculous thing! Yet all these subtle presents missed,
Yield not sincere vulnerability Like the thorns on a rose doth separate Underneath lies thine past adversity Still the petals will fall for ‘tis their fate And expose the beautiful irony,
There was a girl with beautiful short hair, Blonde as wheat, once so long she chose to share. Pale as parchment with a spread of freckles, She enjoys foods with chocolate speckles.
Hard work and dedication, Starting with our pure creation. With the tightest motion, Comes time and devotion. People who become a pair, Keep a flyer in the air. Injured or depressed,
Every day I wake not knowing what's ahead Yet I still push forward instead. I, in my dark-skinned power and zeal knows that my enemies and my haters cannot deal, with me as I walk down our white tiled halls.
“Who the fuck are you?”
The vast, the deep, the wondrous, the ocean That lies beyond the borders of the land. Always moving with powerful motion,
I look for
Upon the beating of my rebel heart Lies weight so heavy I can hardly breathe I cannot place the feeling, but I know That things are not as brilliant as they seem I know those words should come out of my soul
[A slam sonnet I wrote after being in a difficult time in my life after a lot of introspection of who I am and the way people are.] Accept 'Except.' Always are those who don't meet a mirrow,
Mother Earth spreads her children far and wide. Their existence is well-known by but few. My discovery the groom; they the bride.
They think I’m quiet, so they guess I’m shy; Classmates look through me and just stay away. My solemn look tells them to pass me by.
being fearless does nOt mean i
I can see it nowThe huge doors opening my wayMillions of students pacing different directionsGetting to class, with only quick words to say Get to class on time
It happens in a moment--in a rush A flash, a splash of color Washes out the black and white And all the world is still. In quietness of mind, and voracity of heart A moment in time Is ours
