81/1000 - BetterApril 201181/1000 - Better1 month ago in Free Verse
"Sorry about yesterday,"
You texted the next day.
It was a Saturday,
The first one of April,
And it poured all morning.
It's pouring now as I write,
Reminding me of your boots,
The way you swung your legs,
The way you lit up
While receiving my gifts
Bringing me back
To our first time
At that mall,
Instead of hopping over puddles,
We strolled through the snow.
Peeking through the clouds
Glistens off both,
Sending microscopic rainbows
Into the air
For the observant eye
To enjoy only.
"Today is a better day."
So what? So what if I'm not the prettiest?So what? 1 month ago in Free Verse
So what if my skin isn't tan?
So what if I don't get into fandoms,
about some pubescent boy band?
So what if my hair isn't blonde,
so what if my eyes aren't blue?
So what if I believe in God,
in love, in strength and truth?
So what if my friends aren't normal,
so what if I'm a bit weird?
So what if I act like a child,
and I don't like the idea of beer?
So what if I'm into the bad guys?
So what if I don't like gossiping?
So what if I'd rather be with family,
then out at the mall, shopping?
So what if I like weird bands,
that don't curse or talk about sex?
So what if I shy from the future,
or what I'll screw up next?
So what if I love to write?
So what if I'm okay at art?
'Cause the man who accepts these things,
is the man who will steal my heart.
i always forget to clean my nailsyou designed me a quiet gravei always forget to clean my nails1 month ago in Free Verse
lush with darling symmetry
likely a product of your famished nails
or casket poetry
lead me lingering
down groomed and rose-full throats
with such a clever cadence
none of my defenses found their float
hope, you murderer
adorned in servant hem
i will steal your breath
and cut teeth like gems
love, you wretch
i will bury you shallow
red velvet tragedyBoy, you're like Indie rock; original, pure,red velvet tragedy3 weeks ago in Free Verse
not at all soiled by city-slick influence,
meaningless rhymes, screeching voices.
A beautiful disaster like hail pelting the cobblestone
streets outside my apartment; unforgiving,
phenomenal, like true airplane-madness.
Earth-shattering; can you see just how wrong
this is, my bare-chested angel,
lying on a sea-green mattress?
Fingers splayed across my abdomen;
boy, you say, “Maybe it's cruel,
deceiving everyone for the sake of what;
my out-of-control intentions,
bourbon-sun lust, something
I can't keep inside me, no matter how much of
its flower-bomb, fiery-sweet shots I swallow,
an overpriced drink at an East-side dive bar..”
Then you turn your head and
give me the saddest glance in the fractured light
of a Thai candle on the night-stand.
“Perhaps,” you continue, your throat tight, your
words wet. “You should take off
before the weight of this secret
becomes too much to bear, before; love-sick poison,
you see t
Just Me and YouA love so trueJust Me and You2 weeks ago in Free Verse
It's all so new
The way I felt
The way I couldn't breathe
When you said "I love you"
My heart skipped
and I couldn't believe
It's me and you
It's all hard to understand
Hard to control
Hard to beat
The feeling that I had
When you said "I love you"
for the first time
You still take my breath away
My heart skips a beat when I think about you
Even now I can't believe
It was real
Even when I say "I love you"
It's still true
Just me and you
ContiguousI’ll devour your every exhaleContiguous2 weeks ago in Free Verse
Like oxygen is for mere show,
I’ll caress the shimmering sweat
That glistens across your neck,
You be the salt-lick, I’ll be the rabbit.
I’ll release the songbirds from your chest,
Ringed until they glide home, sonorous
And vivid, there are entities within you;
They’ll immolate the sky and guide the lost
In ways the North Star never could.
I’ll harbour your ineffable fugitives;
The limpid logophile, the iridescence
Of the ineluctable tangents and thespians,
My consort, delicate as cygnets, the hierogram,
Sacred and irrevocable.
I’ll leave your regrets reeling, I’ll cantillate
Every repent and pursue your pavonine panoply,
Your Devil will plummet from the clouds
As swiftly and gracelessly as a clipped pigeon;
A gloved hand and a dirk’s hilt protruding from the throat.
I’ll absorb you in my embrace, we’ll dream of beauty
And Bacardi, playing with pandemonium had its perks,
Now the Pantheon is
the first woman i ever lovedshe sits there,the first woman i ever loved3 weeks ago in Free Verse
with her beautiful ground of moss,
gently contradicting the shards of glass
from windows that shattered under pressure
from the outside, to an untrained eye
she looks simple, basically structured.
few dare to get past her mass of artisan designed walls
and her natural barbed wire
but i do
i love her and her breathtakingly haunted ways
and the memories she holds deep within her molten core
though i can't help but wonder what she was like before all this
i can imagine her drinking and laughing with the guys at work
perhaps that's why she whistles old show-tunes
when it's dark and she thinks no one is around
i see the pain in her eyes that reflects the sorrows of her beholder
she understands me, and i adore all of her broken pieces
and crooked stairwells.
SteelShe has a shell,Steel1 month ago in Free Verse
Beneath her skin,
No one is allowed to know,
No one gets in.
Sometimes she lets someone in,
Lets them stay for a while,
Like a test of their intentions,
Like an emotional trial.
One of those she let in,
Broke her from the inside,
She felt like there was nothing left,
Almost like she’d died.
Now she’s reinforced her shell,
Not wanting anyone to see,
But someone’s determined to get through,
Open your heart, girl,
And I’ll open mine,
You and I together,
We’ll be just fine.
I’ll never break your heart,
Never steer you wrong,
I’ll be by your side,
Helping you along.
I give you my word,
And I’ll take it to my grave,
If I ever have to rescue someone,
I hope you’re the one I save.
I know you don’t want to get hurt again, girl,
So you have your shell of steel,
But I’ll make sure when I’m with you,
It’s the best thing you’ll ever feel.
Love is Beautiful in TheoryIf I were to write you a love poemLove is Beautiful in Theory2 weeks ago in Free Verse
I wouldn’t call you beautiful
Because you are so much more
I wouldn’t call you strong
Because I know you wish you didn’t need to be
If I could I would send you kisses
In sealed envelopes
Loving you from afar
Calling you at three in the morning
So you could cry with me
I would hold your hand
As we walked from one point to the next
Neither of us caring where we were headed
Neither of us wanting to go back to where we’d been
I’d ask what’s wrong when tears made your eyes beautiful
And I’d hold you close to me no matter what the answer
Because I understand being sad
And I understand not being able to share sadness with anyone
And I’d laugh at the jokes that only made sense to us
And smile when it felt like you needed it
And know that you are strong enough to see me cry
Because we have cried together
And that makes us a part of each other
I would send you a thousand love letters if I could
Each one inscribed
Dear HeartDear heart,Dear Heart3 weeks ago in Free Verse
Why have you chosen her
To occupy my brain,
To make me feel so warm?
We've been best friends
For so long
And only now
You tell me how I feel?
She captured me
With her adorable way of talking,
And her incredible kindness.
I thought you moved on,
Heart of mine,
So why did you lie?
I can't stop thinking about
The girl I've known for so
Unable to believe that
I still love her.
Let me love her
For the rest of time.

But you found me
My heart was a pile of bloody goo
But you reformed it
I was crying
But you wiped away my tears
I was scared
But you stabbed my fears
I was heartbroken
But I am no longer
Because of your love
I can finally live again
Because of your love
I can finally smile again
Because of your love

Hold me tight and never let me go
Because of your love
I am finally free
Free from all of my doubts
Free from all of my insecurities
Free from the darkness
Free from the heartbreak
Free from the heartache
Free from the evil
Free from the loneliness
I will love you forever

Love Is LoveHer lips and her eyes sparkle throughout the nightLove Is Love1 month ago in Free Verse
I hold her tight while her breathing sounds like a lullaby
Her hair flows like an ocean next to me
While her skin is as soft as can be
It's hard to say when this started
Remembering back, I would have to say that it started on a warm August day
Her lips were warm as they touched me
Lips smooth and sweet
I remember it was hard to just form one line
Being shy was something I might have been
But now I hold her so tight
Not even caring if this is wrong or right
Let the people say what they will
For my love is the same sex as me
And as long as she is with me
The people's word don't mean a thing

A way of keeping girls stay. trust me I was one of those girls
and now I'm just reading all the notes you gave me, the books, the humiliation,

But I know that I'm gonna stay in that school till I'm in grade nine.
I HATE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!I never loved you if I wasn't like flutter shy you'd be already on the moon
This is what people thought "I like you" meant "I love you" and that's what I hate!
remember the time when Hali told on us cause I said to jack "you like Hali"?
And then when the teacher called us you know what I should have said?
It's quite obvious " excuse me?! Do you think all of this is a joke?
Well guess what? It's not.
In grade two me and caedan got teased because we liked each other
I told the teachers but all they said was " ignore them " seriously?
and I only did it to one person and I

Because this is real

But you'd probably be afraid;
Some things are better not to say,
It's safer left unsaid.

How I feel all the time
And how happy I would be
If you really were mine.
But I can't;
I can't, its fine how it is now,
Better left the same, unsaid,
I'm just trying to figure out how.

My Life With Out My Light ( poem to my GF)a day in the dark,My Life With Out My Light ( poem to my GF)1 month ago in Free Verse
a day of pain.
for all I see is nothing,
nothing but pain and misery.
I journeyed through nothing
and found something.
a single fire that is dull
I ran reaching out for it
and grabbed on right were it sits
not letting the flame extinguish
A day in the light,
a day of joy,
I never new
what I would do
if I lost you.

MarcoMy heart breaksMarco1 week ago in Free Verse
As my life quakes
and is torn to pieces.
It hasn't been long
since you pulled the plug on our love.
I couldn't believe it happened.
I couldn't understand.
But now I get it more
more than I ever dreamed of.
I understand why life twisted,
why you broke it in bliss.
Even though I can't say it in words,
I know what you felt
the day that my heart fell.
It will always make sense.
It will always be confusion.
But it will never end
my love for you.
