Dear You, Yes, you, the one sitting there With tears on your cheeks And fear in your weeks. To the one who’s worries Overshadows the prize And scars up their thighs

I’m dying to start a clean canvas,  A clear beginning full of motivation, freedom of chances.    I say clean and not new, for our past teaches us and holds our truth.   
I’m quiet and go unseen  It’s truly the best way to really see.   I see the face behind the mask, the one who frowns behind the laugh. I see the need behind the smile, the one that lies to please the crowd.  
I don’t feel it. The sensation one feels when they laugh, the inclusiveness of pure and true joy that friends are expected to have I don’t feel it.  The ease of their smile, the genuine warmth of those I surround.

This burn under my skin This fire deep within Burns my soul to ashes As the fire my body catches My heart alight My soul takes flight Flees to the grave Where it will stay

dear uncle you are not who you used to be you said you'd always be there but now you had to flee and now there is a tear my heart will never be whole about this I am sure you are now a lost soul
So you say you’re sorry, But is that so, Then how come you hack at my weeds When I only wish to grow.   I may have thorns, and needles, and vines,
Well, well, well Look what we have here, A girl who is useless and overwhelmed with fear.   I may be quite the criticizing one, But at least I know how to get the job done.   You screwed up,
  Dear Future, I yearn for the sensation of your reassuring caress, the blazing star in the sullen space that is endless.

Love Regrets by: Marie Brown Dear Ruthless Soul, Your heart ripped out of your chest for what?
To my loving and caring father, I’ve missed you for several years. I’ve missed your contagious smile and the nights without my tears.  
I have nothing.so I submit myself to something to soothe the stingmy society brings to me. He’s my puppeteer.so I let him grab me by the earto lead me to the sheerreality that I am just a negro. He is white.but he is sadly my knight,in shining arm

Dear Sky,   Thank you for housing the clouds that I dream on and the stars that gleam on.   Thank you for reminding me of the infinity of color and making the day seem fuller.  
Hello my name is properly in tune to your walk, your moves, and your power to soothe  My mind is wrapped around your reason to exist  When I look into your eyes I begin to loose myself in your disguise 
Homework will you go away, I’ll visit you another day.   I am not seen, I am not heard, You consume my time, this is absurd!  
The world was divided  In shades of black and white The hatred was created To show power between man and wife    The book people follow has rules  Against love. What has the world turned into? 
 I think I love you because I think that all that thinking thoughts you have thought about me that kept you awake in the wake of the night has made me to keep thinking that I love you. How be it that on the fist day of a new day of a new month in

Dear Depression,   You’re getting heavy, I’m sick of carrying You. I’m tired of You beating my soul so black and blue.

I see in your eyes. When I am with you, time flies.   I can't believe its been this long,  Our story is an amazing love song.    When I look into your eyes I see our future, present & past.
It is because I love you That I will never hurt you. I pray to God I don't make that mistake, That I should stand before you, Despite your fear berate you

I was empty, before you touched me, And filled my heart with stars. You graced my thoughts with all of these dreams, And made us who we are.   You fixed what was never broken,
We were lightness and darkness, a foil when together- A bond we thought would withstand the weather. Our friendship consisted of joyful bliss and laughter- A love so pure that people sought after.  
Relationships are just as wrong as they are right. Without the bickering and complaining, The relationship would sink and end with a big fight. Trust is just as important as the air we breathe, In a relationship,

No one ever falls on purpose, I knew you were no good for me, but I ignored what was under the surface. I was told you were a flirt, but that is what reeled me in. You acted intrested, so I put up my guard again.
I poked you, You poked me back. Soon it was, A full attack.   You smeared whipped cream, On my nose. I "spilled" ketchup, On your toes.   And when I went,
Many times I have seen tears fall, The sparkle from your eyes, extinguished by life's downfalls. Because I love you, I have watched the brightest of smiles light up your face,

Two in love don't need music to dance, jokes to laugh, or wine for romance. They don't need stars to say goodnight, or for either to be right. They don't need an event to come together;

One day I hope  For 50 years  50 years  Blood sweat and tears    It's beautiful to me  That you've come so far  Side by side  Each battle each scar   I can't imagine

Exploding, Hitting below the belt. And not a single moment taken to consider How the other person felt.   Discounting one another, Assigning each other blame.
Butterflies flitting through my soul  Our passionate love will never grow old   Held safe in your warm embrace  Your kind affection is chaste When my hand is on my waist  
Pure love the pure white dove doesn't like hate so it cannot relate   it only knows those who love it so the dove  does not shove nor does it  hit one bit

With her came a voice, a voice full of joy. As if she was granted a brand new toy. I gazed in her eyes, full of affection. Sadly for me, I saw just my reflection.
Was it my desire to succumb to your mannerism?   Or was it the force you put upon me?   Did I truly believe in this romanticism?

Since when was love only preffered by a small bird. If we were to believe these immortal words that, "Love is only for the birds." then it would be aabsolutely absurd! Since when has it been concurred

Our eyes meet But you see right through me The window in between You and your friend I've got so much to say And no idea how
I’ve been here before Way too many times. I’ve spent countless nights in terror Letting out frantic cries. I’ve plotted my death Again, again, and again. I’m willing to give up this fight, After all, it seems to have no end To you, to him, to her 
I’ve grown sick of this belief drilled in your head I swear, he’s perfect when were alone together When every night last week I laid restless in my bed
What is Love? A trivial thing? A higher power one may believe? Emotion one yearns when theirs is so hurt? Or a wink, a single causation to flirt?   Love is all of these things and yet, so much more.  
She stands at the mirror, afraid to look and truly see what this vessel has come to be. Body image morphed into something untrue after years of so called lovers, planting self hatred inside of you.
  My reflection showing hate Destructive thoughts would not shake I needed them to validate “What a pretty smile” Didn't they know it’s fake?
Can I trust you?    Isn't a question that needs to be asked. Will the thought of you, throwing it in my face hold true?                             No.   
I'll cry for you, I'd die for you, Take it to the other side for you.   Get high with you, I'd fly with you, See my heart is open wide for you.   I'll sigh for you,
He has stumbled upon the girl, the goal of his lifetime.   With an eternity of waiting, the two souls became one, Swiftly, under the golden shine of dusk in the summertime.
We are shaped to be normal, to fit in with the crowd. We are told to do our best to make our parents proud.   We are taught that girls can cry, but "men" can't shed a tear.
Why must you, leave as the leaves I love you, but leave you must Forget us, leave our dead tree We’re apart, like steel and rust  
Relationships can change like gusts of wind I know not of what you were thinking then             How did you ever get me oh so pinned You were changing me again and again  
There are things we can control and some not Don’t obsess of these, it will not bode well Do not disagree, for wars have been fought It will capture presence like divine hell
Love is more than a feeling Something words just simply can not express While this poem may argue that statement Still none can dismiss this engagement.   A feeling most selfless, never helpless
About her, an air of mystery I feel I must pursue; Besides my own sake, It is my duty To convince her That my every word Is true
Because I love you, I know you don’t agree Even at dusk, you heart shoots arrows at me  Your riddles reveal themselves at the altar  While my eyes are still waiting for your blunder   
These little brown eyes See darkness in the sky They try to hide the feelings inside And when the tears come down In a sea of thoughts I drown Worries keep coming around, coming around  
Glaring into the glass of lies. Im not you. You always die. Trying to see the figure before me. Wondering what's their story. Who are you? I ask the stranger Yet familiar being before me.
Take my hand in yours and let’s walk the earth, As if we were meant to since the birth, For I have never felt anything like this, When you lean over to blow me a kiss, In the haze of infatuation.  
Meeting you was no accident.My love, it was surely fate.From the moment I first saw you,I knew you were worth the wait.
Because I love you my life has been made new A tantalizing girl like you is one in a blue moon  
Begin each day with a text "Good Morning." Every friend you have is another reason I'm not worried. Count on me if your day gets overly boring.
My small dove how I long to see you so Your memories cool like rain on my cheeks I have searched long, for you, the one I seek You are to be the one, which I bestow
A relationship can't be won But it can be lost   The difference between a good and bad one Is at what cost   "Because I love you my dear." It's simple and sincere  
She couldn't understand so I sat next to her and held her right hand, she took her hand and squeezed my hand tight to let me know in her own way that it was alright, I didn't know what to say
Love isn't always easy, Challenges may come your way. But as long as you hold hand in hand, You will live to see another day.   Everything is up to you, You have your pen to write.
You're the apple to my eye But sometimes we don't meet eye-to-eye. All the little weird things you do I somehow fall asleep to. Why do everyone say long-distance is hard?
  In my darkest moment,  You were there to cradle me Somehow you became my opponent Preventing me from being free   You and I together Perpetuated my pain The way dark and stormy weather
The best of friends,Two parts of one whole.Together forever. We work together in every endeavor,Neither of us looking to take control,And after every dispute we make amends.

Meeting through video games was such a craze, as I grew to know you, I was in a constant daze. Your never ending smile with a bright future, Unfortunately, our broken hearts cannot be fixed with a suture.

To say I love you, Is to never in action, or word, choose to break you   In dedication, I swear my respect,
Me and you I thought would be forever We’ve been through it all and it basically turned into a never I don’t feel the same anymore  I thought we were compatible  I’m done I hope I’m being understandable

Orpheus strums the lyre, taming each sweet thread A sound dripping honey, melody dancing through head He gives even stones a will And golden sun, facing him, stands still
Accompanied by dying piano in a fragile room Do I realize the lives that we consume A violent direction of whispered lip Toward the door and a shivering nip And the lights shut leaving us to fend
Useless and destroyed The time we spent I try to avoid Thinking of you The time we kissed, happy and joyful In the rain but just a mist I have to admit I never felt this way
I knew we would last, As you made me forget about my troubles. Never having to relive the past, We would do silly things like play with bubbles.  
Love is kind but also cruel Everyone said don't fall for it ....don't But she still looked at him as a hidden jewel Someone she could mend on her own  
I laid eyes on you and nothing changed. Love at first sight is rare, more accurate is a slow storm coming in from the sea, from clear to clouds to a torrential rain.
Nine years ago you and I had never met -but you would not have liked me then I was with others whom I now regret I wished I had met you all ages ago when I was only ten

Hello, old friend, it’s been awhile. I haven’t missed you, and I’ve been in denial. Been telling myself it’s okay to smile.  
I drove six hours just to surprise you   Being spontaneous is something I never really do   I opened your door and once you saw me you squealed with joy

Love feels like a morning delight Your senses know it's just right Love is a pure form of heavenly hugs Sounds like healthy love When you love someone you give all your might  Without a hesistant fright 
With all this chaos I believe poetry died..     thinking to my self why does the world have to be so cruel      drowning in my sorrow in my own pool..   The lesson i take from life , I apply it like a tool 
When people say, "That's so nice of you to help with the dishes." I respond with "I do dishes because half are mine." Love, joy, sorrow, anger, dreams, hopes, and wishes.
Love seems so simple And as beautiful as can be But at its core, the need for more Can consume both you and me.   It starts out modest And innocent at best

I planted the spud, in the field, back in june, Knowing, that with nourishment, it will sprout soon, In the mud it rested, for 10 long weeks,
The thing that can separate living and nonliving, is the ability to feel the ability to take the course of action, steering the wheel. Happiness, Sadness, anger, surprise, disgust and fear
MY BEAUTIFUL  BABY GIRL Thanks for being the only one I can turn too Got me doing this because I love you  When we meet in public  I was amazed The tone of your voice sounds like music with  grace 
I do not have the time of day to play your silly games. There is so much more that I can live for. So, I will just get up and go. Your humor is bone-dry and you try too hard to be the nice guy.
  He tells me lies, but shows the truth. I ask him what he thinks somewhere hiding near a wall I whisper  Who's the fairest of them all?   Your toxic glass draws me in
We Got locked that dayIn top floor of our coachingDispersed late after 8On that busy Thursday evening
When I was in 9th grade  I put stars on my ceiling  just in case sad was the only thing I was feeling.   I'd look up from bed to see all of them glowing
Profoundly in times of the distant past Our forefathers began a glorious act Of thanking God for all His caring deeds. We carry on the torch. We plant the seeds
When the glow of the bow in seven hues Spans the horizon of wet rainy skies, Whilst the sun is still out there shedding rays,
A question was asked, a long time ago. What you meant to me, well I did not know.   My feelings were mixed, my heart filled with questions. That left me with my head,
Love is like a fresh breath of spring,  With love, anyone can do anything. When down, just take a look around,  and make sure your love is seen as profound.    Hug, kiss, talk, miss,

Men will always want to be the one in control. Yet they do not comprehend the difference of being in control, and being cotrolled. Coming from the perspective of a female These men make us feel as if we are in jail.
From relationship to relationship The goal is to find joy, But being stuck in a bad one Makes you feel like their toy. You say you know better, Yet you know that is false,
In this life, we are taught to feel as though we need to be filled to continue to flow. The words of our loved ones can  encourage our growth,  but what happens when that isn't necessarily so?  
Love is two hearts beating as one Mimicking the flutter of a butterfly under the sun It's in sync with time and rythme, not a second or early It even makes you believe in serendipty as well as fate
In the clouds to escape reality Constantly running from the monsters inside of me where do i go if i have no place to run where do i go to find the light thats far behind the sun
Pain lingering through my heart, Consistently anchoring my feet to the dark,  A vital resurection after this depression,  Please listen to this life lesson,   
Because I love you I see your flaws But you still leave me in awe.  Because I love you  I feel your pain  But your smile I still reattain.  Because I love you  You put me in a daze
“You’re just worthless, that’s all you will ever be.” “You’re a whore, and you’re not good enough for me” “I’m too good for you, can’t you see?”  
Lately life has not been treeating me well, Matter fact i can compare it to hell, When your in the mist of the struggle, Seems like all the bullshit doubles,

A healthy relationship can mean many things  Friendly Kind  And being caring  Generous  Helpful  And being trustful  It shouldn’t be  Manipulative  Controlling 
The children walk alone with nowhere to go on the very dangerous road that the darkness controls some walk others run but there still alone forever on the dark and scary road.
For just three months we've been together It truly feels like its been forever. We call each night with an exhange of words,  So simple, so sincere, I couldn't ask for more Time moves on as our affection grew
Twinkle of the midnight stars Candlelight, the smallest flame Brightened up the sunless days, Vibrant with Him near me.   Plain things turned to simple beauty, Bland routine, a familiar flow of life.
As the wind blows on the brim of ocean, When it blows on the unfathomed water, Rises a vast wave in the deep yonder Which, then turns into a vaster version.
I remember that rapturous moment      When the midnight silence bent To music that filled the pine scented air            In mountainous Platres*, where A loner's ears were  blessed to hear      
Love, A beautiful emotion, thick as ice. Love is very very nice. Damaging at first It could truly get worse But, I met a boy Stranger than most Oh that boy I love the most.  
This overwhelming tension is so blissful. How your soul is not resentful. You're the definition of freedom, unique spirit that's so seldom. Exterior of a goddess, superiority on every asset,

Tell me a secret. Something no one knows. Tell me a secret, And I’ll tell you mine too. We’ll pretend we don’t know how to use them against us.
I belong in the night sky A shooting star, immune And refusing to comply. I dance with the moon.   The husk of the world below is no place for me,
Straight from heaven she came to us, Welcoming her with open arms. She protects us like a mother to her child, From fear we shouldn’t be alarmed.  
Its 12am and i cant go to sleep  I was born too stubborn to admit defeat  Your face came to mind as i laid back down  And wondered how the hell i came to town  I came to a place where i found you 
When I look into your eyes, I see my best friend I see a part of myself and how over time we have started to mend. When I look at you, I see my number one supporter and fan

What does a healthy and happy relationship really mean to me?Is this a trick question?
It started with a cap and gown Cheers and laughter with hats covering the sky as clouds piercing the sun as it flies into the air Until flashes of light hit my eyes

Because you love me You see the me I was meant to be Not the me I see But the me I'm trying to be Through all the panic attacks I cannot bare Every one, you are there Even at my lowest You never left me unnoticed All the unwanted thoughts Everytim

Him and Her.   You shouldn't fix what's not broken, unless your in denial, but I don't want to admit,
I see you, stranger, I see you, I see your days in worries in your wrinkles, So deep but evident as Baikals bottom, And no one thanks your being eager To do the summer when its autumn.
Golden Sun and Silver Moon Eachothers love forever does bloom But as for Sky Blue who for me does yearn My true love will never earn The dark and silent night breeze Blows and rustles the pine trees
The fairy ring that circles round me As  I lay in my grassy bed The sun that shines high above me Makes me raise my weary head The others call me Night Pine A name that sadly I call mine

A heart so sincere and a Love without fear all those with ears ought to hear   Love can wait  it is the only thing that can create   Love is kind it is never unrefined

Because I love you, I stay strong through our fights. In getting past our hardships, true love takes flight   Because I love you, I can see past a flaw. They make you unique 
Because I love you, the thought of me without you was unbearable. Being by your side was my choice, little did I know it'd be nothing but a parable, A parable to warn those who thought, "because I love you" was acceptable,

A shattered heart, Torn apart. You broke me with such ease, Knocked me down on my knees.
Time flies, so you can never say goodbye. The thought of you leaving will kill me inside. So if you love me you must stay, You must stick with me no matter the pain.   How will you ever love yourself?
I can think of a million ways to say goodbye but Saying so long to you was the hardest thing to do. I never thought I would have to say it to you.
The reason that I love you is simply very clear, 'cause when I am around you I can feel no fear. Enfolded in your arms, warm in your embrace, all of my troubles I know I can face. Since you are my darling and my dear

It's so nice to feel supported My good intentions never extorted. Your actions aren't malicious or your statments ficticious. You will always bring out the best in me because our love was meant to be.
Ever wondered why I take the hit you give Or why I have suddenly lost the will to live? Have you ever thought of something besides yourself or ever helped anyone when their help was due?  
Though many have withered And none have become a winner We must rest with our kindered For what is success without becoming happier It is this strife that fuels a person That fuels a writer, and a poet
Isn’t it funny how everyone walks around with fake smiles on their faces?; Fake ears to listen to others’ fake cases; They made up in hopes that someone could possibly care;
The road is dark and dreary My feet are getting weary Of the Life Way Street   My eyes are not adjusting
For it to be healthy the feelings must be mutaul. Your life transforms and it feel like you're in a muscical. Healthy means you both are respected,  And you will feel blessed and accepted.

Do not look upon my face Love, why doth you look with pity My chest is filled with hallow space Looking in your eyes, I feel so guilty I'm sorry that I left you behind Filled with tears of all the wrong kinds

I walk down the street, silent and swift Upon my shoulders, a body I lift The blood, still warm, now over me In my eyes silver, is all that I see As the blood covers my eyes
A ruckus I hear, with murderous intent After my life, is now bent In fear I run, from that creature It's face distorted with horrible features A wolf's smile, plated gold Bloodlust within it's heat, so bold
Swiftly, I run down the street To the place where we will meet And in that room, awaits me there A lady in scarlet, with pitch black hair An angel of darkeness, that's what I see
A silent scream echos through the halls I move my knife, a body falls Crimson blood, on my face A grin of joy slowly breaks Here lies he now, on this floor Among the red that I adore
The pain of loss, the pain of love It echos high up above A star that shines throughout the night It goes on, small but bright The question "why" plays in your head As you look straight ahead
This little spark within my heart It quickly fades when we're apart But when we are together It only grows and becomes bigger The spark of joy, the the spark of love Before you, it went untouched
Im  thankfull  for being thankfull
