Born Into a World of Unknown Fate stricken life, maybe she just might Her Name was never to be known The things she was never to acquire
The young boy dances in the summer rain All the kids point and mom calls him inside
I see the burning of the sky tonight, hues of orange to light, fades of blue; dark overcast, overnight, I tame sight. Lion in the sky roars to lay a mark; Seeing the heavenly fire creeping forward,
A love is something that should cause no tears I had my share of hopeless sighs and yet I'm free of care without a cause to fear
On the bed and on the bathroom counter I lost track of time, maybe two hours? I completely devoured the passion you were incredibly lacking and got a high of pure satisfaction
This horse holds spirit rumbling real strong A loud neigh and a frightful sight, he rears He is young and unsure of what is right and wrong Do not be scared dark horse, for i am here.
"For in that sleep... What dreams may come?" Ah, but I know in my sleep what dreams may come, they haunt me by day as black as the sun For with your love went a piece of me,
Hath tho beauty of thy one With legs as powerful as stone Weighing as much as a ton Once again on thy throne. She is, they are, God's gift. Made to help man rule the world,
My heart sank with his visage in sight
My love does not love me like I love him. He claims I think we are what we are not. I just don't understand his frustration, For I'd like to believe I have his heart. My love, he thinks me insane, unstable.
His carefully constructed kingdom of sand
Death sparks contradictory emotions. Disappearance from our earth is morbid, Suffering is also a misfortune, But what if the afterlife is splendid? Majestic mountains and breathtaking streams,
Happiness: the ultimate lifetime goal. Escaping from many day after day, What’s treacherous is giving it delay, Letting various ideals eat the soul, Despite it being in their own control.
I am disheartened by the large decline In the vocabulary choices made By others who are posting things online I wonder how their English papers grade… I like to open books that smell with age
A Winter Within The winter brings its coarse face With unforgiving wind that bites my cheeks A cold too malicious to be embraced The winter is real; it talks, it speaks
One day I'll make a difference, you see Stuck and Lazy, stubborn in my own place But now I claim there's something more to me I'll come out first in this potential race The stakes are high but i shall not falter
Does he lament his life's imprisonment? Does he regret the choices of the past? One bad choice, his intentions apparent Though the future seemed, in stone, to be cast.
Sly grins and stolen kisses, one, two, three. Roasted chestnut hair falling on bronze skin, Piercing emerald eyes and a sculpted chin. A heart swells and bellows to be free. Dead child walking in living fantasy,
A letter has arrived from young Yoshi Mario Brothers has been annihilated Those tiny walking dragons are the yoshi
Its starting to snow, it must be winter, White all around us in the cold night sky. But do you know something this December? I really can't leave now, can't say goodbye. Unexptectedly I've fallen for you,
I love doing what I want when I want. I dont need you or your authority, Give me an open field for me to jaunt, While I run from responsibility. To not give a single care in the world,
Aisles of white, and read By scholars and hoodlums alike, Segregated by understanding, sight Of the future is too often said. The march of the Pedagogue Held count by the beads of the Abacus,
My dream job is one that many might have Although this may be for the wrong reasons An industry that I intend to save A purpose that won't change with the seasons Film industry is harsh, but beautiful
It's been a while since we last talked And I can see so much clearer Knew it was bad, still I was shocked The cliffs edge was so much nearer A long way down as I can see
I don't know why my daddy hurt me so, My arm is broken and it hurts to move; Why he has done this; I'll never know, I wish this would stop; I wish it'd improve. Now that I am grown; I fear him no more,
To change one thing would be a dream. Where people don't bully or judge. Whether it's just because or you're holding a grudge.
I mourn for you my dear Prometheus
A twisting lock of hair falls round your face A shield of purple lacquer coats your nail As desperately I need to know my place I try and try and try to no avail.
Our words already frozen, long ago
Slow like the morning sun rises The hourglass frozen Dawn passes a slow horizon
Balancing on a cobbled walk I go,
Oh my love. Sweet love. How close we had come. Our eyes met and hands touched as we drew near. With your eyes blue as oceans, hairs like chrome,
The purple dino is utopia. He wears a positive smile every day. Kids are happy in Dinotopia, Because he knows how to count, spell, and play. The purple dinosaur can laugh and sing,
Whoever implied that the red rose could love? Surely, then, he has missed its wicked thorns Be it no angel fallen from above Underneath the smile, silently it scorns. 'Neath slender stem, her false pretenses show.
What far too many people fail to realize The addiction of wealth is just as serious as cocaine or gluttony, just more civilized Wall Street watches constantly, imperious They snatch away vulnerable loved ones
We've been told from a young age How beauty is and ought be defined From a young age I have felt resigned Feelings of innadaquacy I could not assuage Actors, makeup, body type, it's all staged
Don't linger in your reverie so long Inside you hear that familiar voice Only keeping yourself holding on To the idea that you don't have a choice In what you're worth, what you offer
Faster than dark, from disillusioned skies Of sable silk, the stars release their grasp, Descending into bitter winds that rasp Against the feathers of a night who flies Faster than silence born of memories
I am no one's Juliet
I am one pursuit in hundreds of recruits. I am in one family in a world of two billion families. I am on one planet in one galaxy of limitless galaxies:
The days are gone but memories remain
When i see you, you take my breath away
So close the day that's gone and yet so far; One step behind, untraceable it stands. Some with their tortured souls and minds make war, And don't recall the glory of the lands
So close the day that's gone and yet so far; One step behind, untraceable it stands. Some with their tortured souls and minds make war, And don't recall the glory of the lands
Walking into the white circle I go Feeling the metal discus in my hand I look all around me as the wind blows The feeling of confidence is just grand
I once thought that your love might have been true, With fantasies I did betray myself. I thought you were my prince come from the blue, I put my real life back upon the shelf. I gave up everything I had for you;
The beauty of love is like a stronghold,
In sonnets all feelings encased therein
Looking up the sky, wishing you are here
The fiery beast falls, slain by the (k)night, His flame breath extinguished in the cool air As darkness engulfs the diminished light And strips its presence in the clear sky bare.
Sword in hand, the knight storms into the fortress. Swinging his blade, he strikes fear into his foes, Slaughtering them, savoring each of those blows. Spearmen pawn their poor lives for his sinful bliss,
Three hundred sixty-five days in a year, But all but one are truly un-birthdays. Days not to celebrate births, but appraise Life, randomness, occupation, career, And concepts that physically don't appear.
With great haste, the dark knight captures his foe Threat’ning the king, who’s turned white as a ghost. He escapes, but His luck is now His woe As His wife now falls, murdered at Her post.
We are simply friends, I first thought of youYou wanted my tape because it was funI failed to see you saw me as your sunThat brightened cloudy days, your skies made blueYour wallet took a punch - admit it's true
Across the room he sees her reading text
My feelings are something I’ve yet to learn:
She watches gladly as the curtains fallCheers happ’ly when they rise again to showConfetti litters wooden floor like snowThe leader stands in front to watch them all.She cups her hands in hopes they’ll hear her call:
Sonnet To lays here down on the bed Once forgotten once awake In the near future soon a newlywed! Just a thought but it’s never too late!
Snowflakes flutter, Pushed by the breeze. Snowflakes fly, Full of ease. Designed to be unique, Never one the same, Neither one has the same name. Fluttering by, Enchanting my eyes,
Cue a wave of gasps from the gallery As the leading man, up on stage he cries Emotion pouring into eulogy, Dead words rising for loves no more alive. We trip headlong into the tipping tells,
Unlike some people, I dislike the sea. The water transcends from clear to pitch black, And it never seemed interesting to me,
Mozart had made it so simple to write, Beethoven could construct with his eyes closed, And together their songs were never trite,
As the ashen harbingers loom abre
The width of a smile is proportionate To the woman's disconsolate heart
His self is more than just a common male; Pale tint skin far more white than snow; Conscience as equal as sun and hail; Large pale blue eyes that radiately glow.
A vacant vessel, void of hope or faithA sundered soul, despairing, dying, lostSo it remains, a restless, roving wraithUntil it can collect for Charon's cost.
High school is like a sea of angry sharks Swimming together but each on their own Some swim in the light, others in the dark By the time we leave we should be full grown Like a school of fish some follow, some lead
To wake on a cold, dismal Autumn night Glum and forlorn; a coffin filled with grief The pink of mine cheeks did refuse to stay Rose blush of love- lost to a wretched theif
I know that you can feel me softly breathe,But with each breath my heart beats fainter still,And though, my love, it's you I'd never leave,I know that it's my time and that I will.
“i suffer from intelligence” -unknown well hey, unknown or not, it’s a great quote by a great mind, whose sanity has flown
The chill of autumn swiftly in the air Its suffocation makes the summer die And winter’s cold is much for me to bear; I do not want to wait until July. For leaves that once were lively choose to fall
Did I mistake this for that lovely thing That draws some hearts to stir and to forgive; That perfect tune the birds in springtime sing; A lullaby that mothers ne'er outlive?
Where it Lies And here in this poem is where it lies With hope and longing torn apart My pain and torture shown through my demise
Act as if you love her; don't hide behind a mask Never give her anything but the best Dare to say that you've given her nothing less.
Today, I am a person born anew I am nothing but a lovely pure dream Black beginning cast aside from sun beams And now I begin a life I do not rue For Death is not a thing that makes you blue
Poetry I just cannot seem to quit. Is their another form that I could do? Dickinson's poetry is not worth shit, And there is nothing that can beat haiku. It sure seems that Robert Frost knows his stuff,
When I Met You By: Melanie Oh how I wish to be glad, With a person that has a great disposition.
Impatiently sulking through dismal days A wretched state of dour contemplationSeeing only drab shades of darkest graysCaged in cyclical self-lamentation Imprisoned in humankind’s austere wallsConsoled by a primitive ambition Pacing madly about thr
Forever thee flame could not be kindled Our love was unlike other loves, easy Wild tongues spread, unable to be swindled. And happily, it was a fantasy Today, sadly, like every fantasy
Shall I compare thee to the deafening silence of night? How it is strong and angry, how it crushes my day into tomorrow, and keeps a lock around my sight. At times you grasped me so tight,
Veils of gold pulled ‘cross the black of heaven, Weep warm summer rain cross meadows of green. Caustic memories wander and beckon,
The first time you made me yours, I never felt so brave Every touch upon my skin enticed an electric sting Each time we spent apart, I experienced a constant crave
Whene’er the lustrous moon and stars appear My tiny world is filled with truth and bliss. The nighttime and the dark I do not fear For here is where I ponder life amiss. Here all my sibling’s bickering subsides.
Fare thee well, my heart, which I have sundered Ripped from my own chest, ne'er to pain again Oh how it agonized and it thundered When thou left my side and thus followed: rain.
Legato, my heart, but sing with sweet joy The eternal tide of time tarries on Even though these moments have long been gone That is only our cruel mind’s clever ploy Dreams do not fade or fly; dreams do not die
Eyes of an everlasting sea-blue sky, Greeting my own whenever we two meet I notice them as life passes me by Knowing our next union'll be bittersweet And still those eyes haunt my eternal soul
Mysterious she lies in wait for him Dark hair that flows like evil in her soul Her eyes catch his and all his dreams go dim And red her passion glows but begs a toll
they protect our nation and way of life they are ready at moments notice there might not be many but they are proud can you guess who I'm talking about
Dig away from all the dissappointment I get lonley in caves all by myself. Thoughts lose everything all in the moment, Scraping nails upon walls, all blood runs high.
Villus burnished chassis still so lush. Pulchritude soars bound for my sulfur soul. Sets fire inside to the abandoned brush, Waiting to fry sitting on beds of coals. Yet these beds are only simmering skin,
When I hear of a hurricane, that is when I will think of you. A force that drove me insane, and a little senseless too. I admit I didn't love, how easily you caught my eye.
The seasons change as days and weeks go by, But winter is what I would like right now. My favorite time is Christmas, I don’t lie,
Thou dreams like no man dreamed before Looking upon thy heaven's for thou fate You speak out for me to say more Before thou sings that one restful note toward heaven's gate
Wherefore do I write poetry, you ask? I am afraid my answer won't be clear. But nonetheless I must attempt this task. I guess I write my poems out of fear. I fear I'm doing nothing with my time.

The color of a fiercely beating heart The hue you grew when you first heard “I do” The fire that rages, deep within my art. It can combat its calmer brother, blue. It is the color that provides us life
I wonder if the world is just a dream Elaborate illusions in my head And all reality is as I deem The weaver of the universe's thread Then why is my world filled with all this pain?
Sometimes I fear that ev'ry thought's been thought. That no more new ideas can ever be. That all creative writing is for naught. That we have simply seen all we can see.
A question I quite often contemplate: Could I create a perfect poem form? Regardless, I have too much on my plate Old-timey styles are the established norm. So what if I cannot carve my own niche?
I wonder why it is that artists choose to pour their heart and soul into their art. I wonder why it is that they refuse to realize that their work has no part In bettering the state of humankind.
It has been long since I've sat down to write I fear that I've forgotten how to rhyme So I apologize if this seems trite This merely is a way to pass the time But why not read a book or play a game?
This poem is a continuation of "Identity" So I am not a single entity. I'm a conglomerate of diff'rent states. Like Patrick Bateman, I'm illusory. I merely am the sum of all my traits.
If women are not bound by their waistlines, Then why do girls’ eyes droop at the sight of scales? More like blooming tulips than heady wines,
They say that all great artists have a muse A person or ideal that they admire. Therefore at great art I must always lose By nothing in my life am I inspired.
Here in the big city that never sleeps… The building of Empire, the Midtown rush, From places to go, and people to meet, Reborn every day from chaotic hush. The boulevard of lights and New Year’s Dreams, Isle of immigrants, Lady Liberty. Horse-dra
How odd that one you do not know today, Becomes the one you cannot live without.
Let love not be just an impassioned flameDark like charcoal in a matter of daysFleeting birds escaping, his misled aimSomething so exaggerated in plays
This is where goddess of wisdom began, In Athens, a petite village and shed; Where Athena grew up and made odd plans, To fight for the throne and not worry to wed. She was like a book that had not been read,
Its simple parts cannot ever redress The mystery that dances across its folds Cloth and thread, no account for the success Which strikes plain garment with magic untold The power it wields to fully impress
Enthralled by your unbounded beauty That I admire all seven days a sennight, It is me that you do not see; My heart pounds madly at your mere sight. Although we descend from people of conflicting histories,
E’erlasting Winter in Heaven subsides, When Fated birds a Chapter newly sing. A tune of Beauty which rare Hope provides, and might from Cloth of Time a Springtime wring.
My favorite character, she is ordinary Just another girl, yet more To admire such a maiden happens so rarely Never has this happened before What makes her different What sets her apart
The brook gurgles, its life bubbling through Sunlight glistens atop its smooth surface A sound very peaceful, a sound so true The light warms the land, its very purpose
Holy waters of the United States, Wash away the cherry blood on his hands, My voice calls out like David's precious lamb, So lost in the valley of death and hate.
I never thought I would see a mean cat It was indeed a day to walk outside It's fur looked damaged for it did look fat I could not believe it, I almost cried The cat was enraged with demonic hate

An aching mind that won’t stop to think, Just keeps moving with no aim to complete, Too quickly we’ve rushed onto the brink Of childhood’s edge, that end none wish to greet.
Humans are amazing, We can do so much in a matter of minutes, And yet our minds are still racing. Sad to say, we do it for the business. Everyone is a witness. We complain about the money,
Life ends death last forever Life is like a spring and death is the river Life is the caretaker but death is the deliver Life will leave you but death will stay forever
Time waits for no one It is sand without limits Covering the surface of life Our tribulations are like the stone The ocean beats against The echoes of sound The dawn of a beginning
Time, born a stubborn son of the universe, its own laws does it solely obey For though so readily minutes may pass, and hours dismissed Like the sun at once emits ‘goodbyes; ‘hellos’, with one soft ray
I'll have a dream tonight, you'll be the lead We'll walk through halls that seem to have no end We'll talk and smile and share our precious time, Together, hand in hand, how real it seems-
Behold! The once sublime and supreme man Trembling and dripping through the moon and sun: Like the God -- tied barely to life and land, Waiting for his last dawn of pain to come. The life and juvenility are torn,
Time after time, I told you "I love you", And you promised you would never hurt me. Your promise failed, but your love lasted too. Forcing me to think we were meant to be.
Shall I compare thee to your brilliant self? May your intelligence pray tell more lines? When I see your books sitting on the shelf It reminds me of your wonderful rhymes Sometimes I recall your serious death
Hours upon hours and miles spread between two small shiny red pins on a map. Asphalt and ground span to create a gap hitched and held together by a Red Thread. Despite all the distance that must be tread
Did love naught ever come this way for thee? Or did love take captive thou soul to slay? Faults rarely seen in love – blind cannot see. Buds of love’s young spring never dreamt this day.
When in her eyes and in her fractured voice, The ache hurts even I, who knows no pain, The tears in scarlet eyes, they have no choice But now to fall and mar her face again.
The golden chains from which you hang now shine, And likewise does your golden frame appear, Enough to so reflect this face of mine In face I see is gleaming glass this clear.
Tick-tock, tick-tock, goes the White Rabbit’s watch, The starry night will talk as the door goes Knock-knock-knock like the winding clock on scotch, Has the Queen lost her mock-mock-mock woes?

Its anger crashing on the sodden land To darken innocence and turn it gray The mighty power of the Sky god's hand His blackest soul that blocks the light of day Its wails, so full of bitter resent
I watch the depot shrink as we begin The sweat now starts to form behind my knees. The vinyl seats make patterns on my skin. I look outside and see the moving trees. We're doing the Lord's word indie this bus
Why compare thee to a summer's day? No good could ever come of it; Yours is a beauty that drives men to slay, And Aphrodite to throw a jealous fit.
The simple ingredients make it good. Mixing and whisking, adding and stirring, Batter is forming, like any cake would. “When is it done?”, my sister’s incurring, Not long now, for the cake is soon rising.
Why didst thou write to tease my weathered mind? In eighteen years on earth I searched to find, Translations for your works of tangled strife, Although thy quill ceased long before my life.
Death, you that lurk in the shadowy night You come as fast as you go like the wind cold and illusive you fill me with fright The sunlight goes dim for the souls that you lend
A person I most admire, this man; Mine eyes hath seen the beauty of his face. And of all others, he is better than; My dearest friend, he does my heart displace. My friend, my friend, of this I always hear:
I see the suns, and to my own demise- The heat, the light; a photosynthesis Of mind, of fight of a vacant mind's eyes. But to seed a life in sorrowfullness And heed in no desire forms as birth.
My love is a like a burning red rose with thorns that prick small fingers, illuminating my sunburnt pink nose. You keep me safe from life’s terrors. The shelter of your arms hides me from all
Sonnet writing is taking me so long. Fourteen lines, ten syllables for each line. I love writing, but this is not a song. Rhyming is easy, but sonnets aren't fine. I wish my sonnet was better. Ohwell.
What gift unto this mind was granted so To make these awful ghosts inside my head? The fountain pen, accustomed to my woe? The paper, still awaiting inkwell's thread? The pen: no door within to human minds,
Happiness is all I ever wanted But loving you is like a dying weed The actions that you portrayed assaulted The way you talk to me can only feed
Alas, I shall always be your "good friend", But this confession to you I must make. I no longer can pretend, That you do not make my heart ache.
She was the one who raised me from my youth. With arms wide open just as mothers do. She was the only one I knew as truth. My sister was the only one I knew.
Is love somnolent in our hearts truly? Within our breasts dost sleep til true love meet? Trust it is clear it is not so for me, Within me passion dost each morning greet!
I've heard about it back at the big farm. The Farmers told us that it's delicious. My Friends said: " Farmers are mean and cause harm." But they were nice and said I'm nutritious!!
Lets go you and me, Let us Travel the dark roads for we could have eternity. The desert sands are dry and thus We shall be bonded by Love with certainty.
A moment’s glimpse is all I get each day Her quick darting silhouette does intrigue Ever wishing for a chance she will stay I wonder how she moves without fatigue Should I call out to her, oh no too late
She sipping on some lean. Popping all of them pills. Smoking a bunch of weed. While i just try to sit back and breath. She said its just to much stress to leave. And drugs separate her from realness.
You are my lighthouse when I'm stuck at sea The mystical moon shining through my night The sparkling light that brings me to thee Shoulder to lean on when nothing goes right
everybody is looking for LOVE but we wind up with PAIN it's not peaceful like a DOVE It's more like a thunderstorm mixed with hail and RAIN
My chocoholic English teacher lights Up the classroom. Her witty remarks make The children giddy. She makes sure we cite Our work. For projects she won’t let me bake.
As we grew I watched you with ease, A friendliness only siblings could share But as you aged I watched that joy cease: And in our friendship you seemed not to care. In my maturity I saw your pain and flaws,
Track One: The beat plays and he ignores that intuition Grabbing his notebook and pen to begin his rhymes It’s like his love's past is causing this prevention
A heartbeat accelerates, blood coursing through protruding veins of scarlet and blue. Harder and harder to push oneself through indescribable pain, often forcing legs to keep moving; the mind divorcing
The Mother Earth that once throbbed with life Is falling into the abyss of death. It is the human and animal strife Which contracts and compresses nature's breath.
I've been calling you the Queen for some time And this for a multitude of reasons Out of wit, because your last name is King About you can drive a man to treason
Ceaseless lines of maidens enthralled by me Their love draped as a heavy wool blanket Suffocating, choking, can’t stand to be Beneath the wool, leading to my casket.
It was for our freedom that she fought Our suffrage, rights, autonomy Until her expression was brutally shot With the bullet of misogyny. This was not the end, she refused to eat
This is a sonnet; it has fourteen lines The purpose of its creation quite lame Simply to avoid my mom’s and dad’s whines And I suppose not to feel so ashamed To satisfy my English teacher’s will
From across the room I see you staring, Disappointed and disgusted with me, The staring turns into hateful glaring, Because I am not so ordinary. I look at you and go look who’s talking,
Seconds pass by every day, An unavoidable truth, Reaffirmed in youth, Destined only to fade away. Though refusing to stay, They rarely lack ruth, To forgo the uncouth, And blend into a graceful ballet.
Two hearts beat as fast as fluttering wings. People may say that it's just puppy love But that isn't what's engraved on their rings, "Infinity and Beyond," with a dove. "Y'all are making a big mistake," says all.
To my dearest of the night, Although we knew each other barely, My love for you is given such might, It gives me such pride to be with you verily.
What is a body but from dust is flesh? 'Tis purposeful to carry every soul, O'er life we sail, traverse with burdens set, [This skeleton!] This ship! The cracks are felt from deck to hull.
