Love is like a wild stormWith a shower of broken hearted rainIt will swing you like a tornadoFlood your heart like a hurricaneIts hard to love someoneThat doesn’t love you
Are we able to see each other? The beauty of you and me can you see it? Can you feel my heartbeat when you're next to me? You're a dream I can't touchFading away with the clouds
I want to be perfect, I don't want the pain. I want her to be happy. I want everything to gain. I want people to disappear, her attention I crave. She makes me strong, she makes me brave. I don't ever want to argue, I don't want her to hate me.
A steady rhythm, A speedy pace, My heart now seems to race. A race, A fight, What we do in the night. Loving, leaving, I begin to start bleeding. Remorce and grieving
I miss how you looked in my eyes that first night I could not recal anything else the way your soft skin felt on my cold hands The blurred memory gave me a rush I miss when we layed recalling the past
I want to love you, but I feel like we rushed. Two months went too quickly. It left me thinking, "Is this lust?" You said it was more, and with me you did agree, and getting "us" back
Love can be a poison Like a snake wrapped around you, Suffocating you, Injecting the poisonous venom Those tears that hit your face, They burn like acid Why must this happen to you
All you do is push and shove“You’re so distant,” then you’d say.Do you even want my love?“Save it for a rainy day”
and there’s a whole in my chest and it aches for you and I’m going crazy in my head, I don’t know what to do and I’m sad because you’ll probably never feel the same and because I’ll never see you again
You are my South Wind, There to uplift me There to surround me But never to falter. You are my Sun, There to light my way There to give me hope But never to dim.
She screams as the light beams pushing and pushing the wall of despair. Times of love from above is just like a dove resting on my shoulder. Times of love, Times of love, Times of love.
Because all the things you've done im like this today. Hurt, numb, empty; whats lost is gone forever. Forever feeling a unsacred empty space. You took the only part of me that wasnt yours, the part of me that you havent already distroyed.
The hole in my heart is deeper than the sea, The hole in my heart is blacker than the new moon sky. I still wish you were with me, your touch still lingers with me. As I’m asleep I dream of me back in your arms,
I am a silver moon. You are my world. If you do not desire this gravitational pull any longer, then I shall take myself elsewhere. I can find another planet to orbit my heart around. Someone who does not consider me to be a meteor.
You weren’t a waste,I was just a hassle.I wanted one taste,But I tore you apart,And I ruined your life.I caused my own demise,My apocalypse..
theres many ways to show love actions speak louder than words many people may recall the scene of pain to overcome pain forgiveness is the key.
Can a heart still break once it's stop beating can you believe me even though you know I am lying will you be there when I need you even though when your in need I'm never anywhere to be found when your in need will you catch me when I am
I said a word I made a friend I am yellow I said a word I am in a relationship I am pink I said a word I got into a fight I am blue I said a word
I knocked on the door just to listen and see if she was home For some time I waited, cold winds flowing past me and down my back my mind started to rome Alone is what I began to feel but then she came to the door
I used to write poems about the colors of your eyes with a stomach full of butterflies. But now I write words about the voices in my head and how I wish I were dead. You used to promise
He was my bandaid. I was his confidant. He was fun in bed. I was scared of becoming attached. He was my friend and potential lover. I was an experiment. He made me feel sexy and beautiful. I made him climax. He lied about wanting more.
Tears roll down her face as she sees her lover with someone else Disgusted she feels She wishes she was someone else The anger inside from the lies he told Disrespected from his actions He is so bold
Little reminders, I find them everywhere. Little reminders of how you used to care. Looking back we had it all, no wonder no one predicted our fall. More days pass and you’re still not around,
We don't get to timeour crises of faith,do we? When thebite has gone outof the bourbon itseems as thoughjokes are not funny,as they used to be.
It’s hard to miss something you never really had, But that’s all part of not having a dad Don’t get me wrong, I wish he were here, But like always he’s no where near. He’d be angry to know I’ve lost all respect,
Your memory is within me, And so it always will be. I remember now that you're free, From the pain of mortality. In my mind I see your eyes, As blue as the endless sky.
My heart aches and my stomach too I'm too old to notice you
I'm a statistic because of my family.I'm the derivative of a broken home.A shattered background of instability and hardship defines me.The remnants of my childhood are just bits and pieces
You reel me in, I cringe from you. You toss me aside, I hold you down. You throw me out, I run away. You long for me, I stay in the sidelines. You lure me back, I come back,
i want to hear everything you have to say. i want you to drown me in the sound of your voice, and revive me with the subtle whispers you breathe. i want you to perform a symphony
across the universe,i fall into the sky.lucy is there,as it rains she cries,"dear prudence,don’t pass me by.”
Four years ago I would be crying Devisitated Screaming out why me Looking inthe mirror trying to figure out whats wrong with me But now I stap back and look at it all Damn that was such a hard way to fall
Who blesses this child that cries alone, when the place that’s safe is farthest from home. To whom does she thank for the large dreams broken and who will wipe her face when tear stained shirt is soaking.
Last night I thought I calmed the waters You went back to sleep Peacefully But in the morning, there you were Hollow and empty Again Sometimes you disappeared For only a second
This is my last breath for youthought for youlast time ill ever spill my heart for youI said I'd wait forever but forevers deadI need a new reason to get out of my bedI need you out of my head, for good
Watching raindrops fall from out of my window As tears fall upon my pillow My heart it aches Because I've tried and tried...what will it take? I wear my heart on my sleeve.
I am sitting in a chair, thinking of your words, knowing that it wasn't going to be, so this time I know that I would be lonely. I walk into the room and the time passes by, I soon begin to forget...
Your currents carry all different colors that nobody else can see but meThey blow the strongest on my worst daysWhen you're near me, I can feel youWhen you're nowhere in sight, I can still hear you speak
Why did God give man a voice... if no one would listen. Literally Im screaming.. SCREAMING!. yet you call me soft spoken.
You’re the sunshine of my cut You’re the hatred in my love I thank you for my mistake Cause it made me so crazy And I deserve it.
THE DEFINITION OF A PUPPET IS NOT THE MEANING OF ME, YOU THINK THAT YOU CAN PULL MY STRINGS AND MAKE ME DANCE AS YOU PLEASE, I'M A HUMAN-BEING WITH FEELINGS AND YOU JUST CANT SEE, ITS ALL SAID AND DONE NOW THAT'S THAT, MAYBE YOU SHOULD FIND A PUPP
I know that I was hanging from a cliff you pushed me overand then all of a sudden felt safe looking up at you and while I thought you had grabbed me to save me,I soon found,I was the one who had grabbed your ankles,
Scented oil and a dozen sticks Emptied out and spoiled it Poisonous and full of blame Cheeks beet red again Spilled it out and filled it up A tablespoon and a teacup
Words were spoken of hate, Whispers of love. And although we both loved And hated, Hate got to us. We thought we’d be hurt by another.
Im running as fast as I can away from that path with the fork at the end of the road I've been down this road before Last time it left me hurting and picking up the pieces shattered among the floor
the thoughts behind love, the thoughts, the meaning for love makes you want to go crazy and wild for, your heart chasing while your mind just being wasted, wasted off of your heart consisting pacing, your heart never stop chasing off of the though
I tore through her forrest of thorns slowly becoming crazed, the faster I galloped, the more I panted. I saw her horizon line, bathing like temptation against the heat of
I used to think we could be one of two things-- friends, or strangers But I've come to the realization that it MUST be the latter I am so incredibly attracted to you And I can't help myself
Cut in two, ripped apart How could you-break my heart? Your love was firm, your love was rare But now I squirm, and I despair How did I change? Please tell me how I find it strange, but I’ll allow
A toast for the scumbag Three cheers for the jerk. Hip-hip for the asshole With his signature smirk. He struts down the alley With his head held so high He’s better than you So don’t even try.
It started at your ankles, rising slowly with the blood and sinews that attached it to your leg. I first was envious of your skin, wanting to be the thing that wrapped around you
There is nothing I can give you. No poems to read you have not read, no books, no songs to listen to and think of me that you have not already heard. There is no offering of peace or stability,
I woke up with you on my mind, the same way I went to sleep. I prayed for your happiness and welfare before my own soul to keep. I've been hurt and dragged and bludgeoned to death by the bombardment of my own heart.
Blinded by the prettiest eyes I've ever seen, Just had to compliment, not to be mean. Blue color unlike anything I've known, Stunned by the beauty, it clearly shown. Held hostage by your glance, Baby Blue,
When we first spoke Without having seen your face I knew I would want you and want to be yours After talking more I fell....hard My only hope is that you would catch me
Psyched and love-struck by you Dilate, constrict Constrict, dilate My heart is just as excited as my thoughts Did I eat a love bug? Or was that the pig I roasted from under the rug?
In my heart, is there a desire that may tear it apart? Is there love and hate, that may rise to a dreadful fate? Is there a soul, so dark from being cursed, that it blackens like coal?
Country fair, sweet seventeen There you were, and everything Faded from my view except The boy who had me won
Okay, you've done it, Are you happy now? You've crushed my soul, You're not stopping to help me pick it up. "Come on back," you say, What do you want now? Another piece of my heart?
There are men more clever than I. Thousands of handsome faces to steal you away. Confident Trojans, brooding, drunk musicians whose songs envelope you in swift, obvious seduction. Bullshit poets. Tale as old as time.
Give me then something to write about All the truth-tellers scrambling around Aching twisting burning out Because really, whats left to say? Why write why write why write Poetry?
Hi honey! How was your day? Let me get your coat & hat. I made dinner for you I hope you enjoy what I made for you. I love you so much heartache. no one else knows me as well as you do. Well I'll see you tomorrow.
My heart is heavy, with sorrow and grief It needs time to heal It is desperate, starving for relief.
The inseparable bond just disappeared into thin air, As if it never existed to begin with. But wait, flashback: weekend after weekend , we'd ride the metro to D.C. or go see a movie. We'd talk, we'd laugh, we'd have a good time.
My tongue will not spill No. I want to give her the world. No! she deserve the world. From my rib that is why He created Girl. She is so dangerous, avoid the eyes. Her voice is like an Angel, so check your pulse for evidence that you are alive.
I'm shutting down What else am I to do? Till you come around Till then I'll wait for you So broken How I feel inside words unspoken All these feelings denied
I long to tell you whats already been said but the rain has stopped, one sided romance feels dead. The bitter cold bite of reality engulfed me
Hello My name is Ashleigh I am a 19 year old African American female that was born in December Not only am I trying to succeed in beating out the statistics I am also proving that I can and will be something
Why not me. Look at them, they seem so happy Hand in Hand, drowning in the endless pools of each other's eye Oceans of euphoria, smiles real big like a child watching fireworks
If my heart was singing It'll crescendo lovely notes Repeatedly singing I want a sunday kindof love So I don't mourn monday Leave me broken on tuesday Over thinking on wednesday
I knew that when I’d fall asleep, I’d only dream of you. And of the Last rose I’d ever get from the man that loved me too. And when the night is over, I wake up and I cry.
When winter storms bring snow and ice and springs face hides beneath And life is draped in cold regret where jealousy sinks its teeth The road is dark and rough, though often traversed by those
It hurts, every whisper Each wayward glance, so close Every moment heard and felt Twisting the shard with each tremor, vibration Icy crystalline glass wedged to deep to pull Oh beating drum in my body and ears
Once there was a boy with a heart so big A heart so willing to give, give and give A heart so forgiving and filled with joy A common trait in such a little boy
"You look nice today." Flashback "You look nice today." She said it so sweet The smile that crept across her face Everything about me melted away Wanting to run into her arms
This Poem is my everything. If you can, just listen and let me know what you think!
What does it mean to breathe again to feel again to heal again It means to wake up and to see your mistakes Don’t ever let your mistakes take the place The place of your joy and the place of your smile
Its you that I've been waiting for The one who would sweep me back to shore Why do I fall so easily When the words you used were so cheesy my heart beats fast You were my first and I was hoping my last
when I watch the patchwork of stars ten thousand galaxies away when I watch you go - orbit away from me as I stay stagnant we are, feelings fall away like dust plummet to the earth
In the depths of my mind, I envision my own world. Its beauty is flawless. There is nothing but starry skies and peace that only paradise can provide. That day, I saw your despair and
I can see the heartache in your eyes someone before me made you want to die I've seen it all so many times I'll try my best but still I'll make you want to cry
Memories of you fill my mind. My heart aches and tears fall from my eyes. I miss you more than words can express. And I cry as you're laid to rest. Sometimes I feel so sad and alone,
(poems go here) This World... This place is so cold and hard It feels like there are boulders on my chest They crush my body
The day they met, it was love at first sight He kissed her, She felt butterflies for the first time She fell in love with his actions He told her she is the one he first ever loved
Shattered. Shattered like the chandelier Now crumbled on our floor. What once lit our worlds Now disintegrates into the dust of time.
The words fall Calmly Yet sharply Gracefully Yet cruelly Razors clothed in a hushed, quiet tone Yet, maybe, there could be A hint of longing, That lingers for me
Theres one thing i've learned about love, They never come with protection, So we are all forced to go raw. I was forced to fall in love with myself, Simply because nobody else will.
Vagabond. Wanderer. Nomad. You volatile piece of filth. Torn and wrenched my heart has been; now it is as lifeless as what you call a soul.
Talk about cliche I've got my heart on my sleeve. Unsure what to do Don't know where to go. You reeled me in like a little fish You've pulled me around like a puppet on a string
MAN OF GOD? MAN OF GOD?! YOU’RE NO MAN OF GOD…YOU’RE A BOY WHO’S HARD…THERE’S A DIFFERENCE.
