out of reality like

on those days
i just think
my god, you really don't
realise how amazing you are.

I remember that some day,
When I'm sitting with my husband
In the old old house... my days will simply
And that day,
The day when my heartbeat is
The day when my breath
Truly gets taken away.
That's the day
When my worries, my concerns, my fears...

I whispered to the evening's belt.

a mother hushing her child's cries
with century music.
it could have been crafted
by the fingers of glass orchestras.
I let them strum until
the vibrations send earthquakes
rattling buildings like
this, I knew,
was silence deciding to scream,
a storm finally hawk-winging
its thunder to the world.
I, an unperforated
sheet of old tastes,
I, an empty letter
taped beneath the mattress...
I lifted my life to my earlobe
and waited for the sound.
Radiant Smile...A radiant smile as yoursRadiant Smile...2 days ago in Free Verse
is hard to find,
but when I look at yours
I want to cry.
When I look a little closer
I can see your eyes,
And it makes me want to scream.
Nothing escapes your gaze,
yet you remain silent.
Like a reaper,
observing from shadows.
Such a vivid and bright soul
went almost invisible in front
of our judgmental eyes.
And we did nothing.

It left me burdened with strife.
I cried for you,
Living life in a bluish hue.
I must stand and fight,
Cause this just ain't right!
Losing family and friends,
I will make amends!
This cancer it is a blight,
Life is already finite.
We can not give up hope,
Just waiting, learning to cope.
A difference must be made,
So the doctors receive our aid.
A cure will be found,
To my word I am fully bound!

Make my heart sing.
Until your misdirection.
How many lies told
To one you would give gold?
How can you lie?
Makes me want to die.
Why cause so much pain?
Tears pouring like rain.
Dreamed of many years.
Gold covered in tears.

The Place where Time Stands Still (Poem)The Place where Time Stands Still (Poem)3 days ago in Free Verse
And the blades of grass sway
In the calm of the breeze
And the sun has now risen
The mood set in ease
In a place not our own
More in tune with the heart
Does time seem so still
And a world far apart
The farmer has woken
And the animals now stirred
Awake from their slumbers
From dreams pure and good
The bovine does moan
And the swine start to wallow
As the rooster caws loudly
At the coming of tomorrow
And the town rouses quietly
To the start of a new day
To grow tomorrow's corn
And today's ample pay
For business starrts anew
And there is money to be made
Not enough to love in mansions
But to keep the bills paid
For the sun shines so bright
Yet the day seems so still
Against the swaying of corncobs
That move at wind's will
The town gets to work
And the day has begun
And the future is set
At the guidance of the sun
For the town never changes
Nor the field or the homes
Nor the people and families
That are never alone
In this quiet little village
A place humble and small
Do the eons pa
TreeTree1 day ago in Free Verse
i sit under my old oak tree
on the lonely shore of a black sea
i used to be lively, care free
now look what i've done to me
suddenly the tree begins to sway
i fear for myself, i must run away
roots around me, how did i become this way
the ocean attacks me with it's spray
i need to break free, don't know how
the roots hold me, getting away they won't allow
i'm strung as tight as a violin bough
looks like i'll always live here now
i just want to be free
but away i just can't flee
the tree giggles happily
but me? i'm part of this tree.

winter's been settling in our eyelashes, finding a home among the stillness.
supernovas in skin, we were never stars, only the dying light in fresh blood, every wound we've had fringed with frostbite.
see these scars?
tell me you can't bury dead things in frozen ground.
( don't forget to take the withering flowers when you leave, darling.
funerals just aren't quite the same without them. )
dissect the planet, search for things we'll never find.
you've got mortician's eyes, and i have scalpel fingers; let us discover what killed venus.
did mercury poison her? did earth drown her?
did mars choke her?
let us unravel the tendrils of sunlight in her arteries, witness the flicker of a memory of warmth behind her cold eyes.
we'll only expose with horror that the fingerprints are our own, the blood under her nails our own.
( we killed our own love,

Green: The Color Of Nature And EnvyGreen: The Color Of Nature And EnvyGreen: The Color Of Nature And Envy4 days ago in Free Verse
Ugh... where am I... again...?
Am I lost...? If so... I don't mind...
Green. The very mention springs nature to mind. From the leaves on the trees, to the grass in the ground, green is everywhere to be seen.
Ah... this is nice...
Unlike the other colors of the spectrum, green can be found everywhere in nature. It reminds one of the days of old, before technology took hold in the form of man-made cities. And being that it is the fusion of blue and yellow, green is cheerful, but not childish. It is calm, yet wisdom never seems to be the major concern.
In short, green is balanced.
Eh... okay, I gotta find something different now.
W-What? You... reject green?
Okay... fine. You see us as a dull color, then. So WHAT if we aren't filled with wisdom like blue, or filled with absolute innocence like yellow? Maybe we aren't passionate like red, willing to compromise like or

I hug them close at night,
kiss their foreheads and mutter:
"I love you, don't leave me."
And that changed me,
changed the person I ought to be,
I don't recognize myself.
But you were my killer, too.
You promised you'll be here for me.
Where are you.
Where are you.
Where are you.

3AM ThoughtsI want to scream.3AM Thoughts2 days ago in Free Verse
I want to break down every wall surrounding me.
I need to run so far away,
but I know escaping with no consequences is impossible.
I just need to get away.
I need to live and go on adventures.
Instead I'm stuck.
I can't escape.
There is no escape.
It's the 3AM thoughts that never leave your mind.
Constantly thinking, hesitating, deciding, wondering,
Why is my mind a grenade of pain,
anytime sadness seeps into my bones an explosion of emptiness evokes me.
I am an enemy of my own being,
the creator of my own darkness.
There are Friends.Friends are the people who hate you,There are Friends.3 days ago in Free Verse
Friends are the people that love you,
Friends are the people you love,
Friends are the people you hate.
They'll hurt you in order for you to grow,
They'll help you up when you're left down low.
Friends are stupid random people.
Friends are serious helpful people.
Friends will tell you that you screwed up,
However they'll help you fix it all up.
You'll fight with them and hurt them,
You'll care for them and heal them.
Friends are your deathbed.
Friends are your life link.
They tell you what you don't want to hear,
They tell you what you the harsh and honest truth,
They tell you what you are in the mirror.
They will love you.
They will hate you.
Perpetually on and on.
Oh. (Ode to the Replaced)Oh. (Ode to the Replaced)3 days ago in Free Verse
You’re gonna hang out with them?
No, it’s fine—I think I have something to do, anyway.
Oh, you’re hanging out with them again?
But—I was thinking maybe we could do something. . .
No, never mind. It’s fine.
You guys have fun.
Yeah, they sound great.
Hey, maybe we could talk about something else?
Yeah, I think they’d like that.
You talk about them the way you used to talk about me.
We used to do the same things you do with them.
But now, we don’t do anything.
But now, the only thing you talk about is them.
But now, I’m not welcome.
I’ve been replaced. . .
How lonely it is,
To be replaced.
Whether it be a friend,
Or anything else.
It leaves you feeling empty,
Of little value.
How lonely it is,
To feel so un-extraordinary,
To feel so un-unique,
To feel so un-special,
Because someone is willing to throw you away,
To be with someone else.
''Emine''Many people have been near me,''Emine''23 hours ago in Free Verse
But they were never there for me.
Many people see my face every day,
But they can never see who I am.
Many people speak the same language with me,
But they could never understand me.
You though, you are different;
You’re miles away from me, yet you’re always here for me.
You had no idea how I look,
Yet you could see who I am from the very start.
Our mother tongues are not the same,
Yet you’re the only one who can always sort me out.
I used to believe that Angels don’t touch ground
But you are the proof that I was wrong.
I don’t know why, but God has sent you to me
And you’re the greatest gift I could ever receive.
