Good bye old thoughts

The  pain that is  inflicted upon us

Leaves  our mind full of ruckus 

The fight between wrongs and rights

Can keep us dwelling and awake all night

 

Walls they cave in on top

We ask our minds to stop

 

Tossing and turning frantically 

Visions of pain played out dramatically 

 

Worries and fear 

Won't disappear 

Because we lend a listening ear

To those who ...

No time to pause

Tick tock

I am your life span clock 

Tick tock

I see you at the bottom of your rock

Tick tock

I see you at the top of your mountain 

Tick tock

I see you indulging from all fountains

Tick tock 

Wasting seconds 

Not learning lessons

Poping pills for all kinds of depression 

Crying in pillows

Dating the wrong

Not doing right

No sleep 

You sit up all nig...

Mind over matter

We wait for a new day

Hopping it's better

In fact 

That shit is never clever

While we wait we hesitate 

Trying to imagine what we want

Our life we debate 

In the mist of our mind

We will find all the wrongs 

When we are down

We only frown 

Blanking out 

The positive sound

It's easy to envision the worst

We cry so often 

We may feel cursed 

What's wor...

Time is precious

Heartbraking news 

Deliverd to us all in one day

To be told her cancer will not go-away

Has left our family living in grey

 

Her brain

Her lungs 

The stomach too

Each part of her needs a prayer from you

 

The chemo is just a money making scheme 

The doctors and nurses are not what they seem

 

My mams a person who still has rights

There is help out there

SORRY

 sorry ; to the hearts I abused '

The lies i told , and those I used.

The pain I caused and tears I made fall,

These deep;  I'm sorry's  : goes out to all.

 

 A child thats growing,  will make mistakes

Until one day:  knowledge;  will take it's  place .

 

Without wrongs ' there are no rights

Without struggles ' there are no fights. 

 

No longer a child : yet mistak...

You're power

200mph  howling winds

Vicious down pours 

Hurricanes strong enough to permanently remove her ,

 in that moment : the same moment her life' no longer felt like she was living 

She realized ; she was drowning herself. 

Her own limitations ' covered in fear 

Her eyes closed

Unable to really see how it was all an illusion.

Curtains opened 

Colours fly

The blindfold

She's surrounded by beauty 

She's safe and secure ,

Her blindfold prevents her from seeing alot more.

 

Her eyes are open, her blindfold still on

She has her sight,

She knows she's wrong.

 

Removing her shield can help her to see,

But her pain is what's causing the blindfold to be .

 

Her hands move freely 

Their are no chains

Only mental blockages embedded i...

A lady in the streets but a freak in the bed

A woman so wild ' yet classy

A horney beast and sassy.

 

Filthy thoughts linger in her mind

 this woman is by far, one of a kind

 

She's eager to please

Ready, to drop to her knees

 

Panties ,so wet

With every tease

 

Wants to do absolutely anything daring,

But won't tolerate the idea of sharing

 

She's to cute and caring

 

Between the sheets

New lease of life

She sit's amongst the piece's

Of broken glass

And photographs

Reluctantly releases

The last

Of what was her past

 

The door's they slammed like thunder

Her tears they fall like rain

The warnings from her family

Whirl like a hurricane

 

She's no longer drowning in emotion

She has made it to the shore

She survives

her storm

Dating

Butterfly's and nerves

 

Anxious and scared

 

Excited and giddy

 

Our first date in our city.

 

Head stuck in the past

From the memories of poison gas

 

Feelings of disbelief 

And hoping it will pass.

 

 

This man seems

tender 'honest and caring

From the first phone call

He has not stopped sharing.

ANGER

Suppressed anger

At its best

 

Tightly squeezing air from chest

 

Meditation and salvation

 

Never feeling any confirmation

 

Always seeking an explanation

 

drowning

And hyperventilation

 

Anger is like a bubbling pot

Once you start

Its impossible to stop

 

 

Waiting for a fresh new season

 

Never needing a proper reason

Single mom's

Everything we do,

We did it for you.

 

Yes it was hard,

But all of the greatest accomplishments are.

 

Once we felt, we couldn't cope

 

Emotional turmoil felt like

We're Dangling from a rope.

 

The tears and the tantrums

The pain in ears 'from beating drums.

 

Countless nappies

And sore bums.

 

Walking the landing 

While soothing your gums.

Ready ;-)

Her mind is no longer a busy place,

The stillness has finally arrived,

Welcomed , with open arms.

The comfort of her own charms

Has evaporated her own alarms.

 

Although she still thinks,

She is silent enough to allow them to sink right down to her very core.

 

The alarm bell's have silenced once more ,

The pain she felt has lost its roar,

 

Her mind filled with...

I just want my mum

I think its really selfish

The way you drink your self into oblivion

Not caring ' not knowing

No longer glowing

Your liver failing

Mother daughter memories fading

Cleaning your sick is degrading

Falling in front of neighbors is shaming

Are you not sick of us all complaining

 

 

I want you to see 

What you mean to me

with you downing so much wine

We are all apart of art

Our poems are not contest's

 

Their is no win or lose

 

All that stands between them

 

Are different point of views

 

This site is full of options

 

Many things the poet can choose

 

Different styles of writing

 

Each individual poet may use

 

Many themes

 

Many dreams

 

And many more in-betweens

 

Thank you all for sharing

Blowing hot and cold

The wind that shakes the barley,

Was once fierce ' wild and strong.

 

The wind that shook the barley,

Blew rampant all week long.

 

The wind that shakes the barley,

Whistled its very own song.

 

The wind that shook the barley,

Left nothing standing still.

 

The wind that shakes the barley,

Can Help you up ' many steep hills.

Mistaken

I have a funny story!!!

It holds nothing but the truth.

 

I meet a man,who claimed to like me!

So early on in his youth.

 

When He first appeared,

Standing tall ' un- shaved beard.

 

Speaking like he knew me

For all the bus to see,

I sat with much confusion!

Nothing made sense to me.

 

After our first encounter,

I was dazzled and quite surprised.

Grounded

Her feet placed firmly on the wet grass

No shoe's

Her soles and the soil

United Once again

The connection between herself and mother nature

Love she will not feel in other places

Gracefully showing her gratitude

For all that mother earth has to offer

The soft whistling and chirping

different birds from diffrent flocks

Together at peace

The bare trees standing tall

Shame

The building standing before you,

Was made from brick and water.

Entering requirements,

be polite to owner also porter.

No man or woman should cross the threshold,

If one prefers only the gold.

The doorman himself has the right from owner, to basques those who withhold,

"good afternoon' here's my silver spoon,

I do not like that bellboy .

He speaks a truth, I know nothin...

Authentic self

Who is perfect?

Not me and nor you.

Not your neighbors.

Nor anyone who breathes the same air as us all.

What is perfect?

Is it pretending you dont make mistakes.

Or is it being accountable for your own doings.

How can one be perfect?

Does one follow others who think their right.

Or is it following your heart no matter who is against you.

 

If we dont speak up for w...

You pair are both great :-)

This place has turned into an unwelcoming habitat for hate and riots of hurtful words and negative minds.. I think the both of you have talent, different style's. It does not mean, one is better than the other. Appreciate the differences and remember in God's eyes you are indeed brothers. Please read with an open mind and know that this is me been kind..

No one is better than anyone

Expressing one's self

Should never be judged

Its takes strength and courage

With that  extra nudge

A passion for writing

A problem too spell

Should never be an issue, bloody hell

To say awful things , your soul needs guidance

Go talk to jesus, he can provide things

A dark soul, has story's to tell

An egotistical mind will always yell

To think your better ' to which...

Ghostly encounter

December solstice opened a door

Something she never experienced before.

Candles lit

Sage on fire

Her only wish was to fulfill her desire.

Called on to her angles prior

Called on to god for he is higher.

Beaming with light

She proceeded to begin, not knowing the consequences she would face within.

Flames flickering

Body shivering

Hand's quivering.

Midnight madness

Crossed wires

Heart desires

Pulling strings

With a pliers

In a knot

Loosing the plot

Digging for the greenest snot

Insane thoughts

Buried to rot

Wishing to be a tiny tot

Sleeping in my cosy cot

Taking life seriously

I am not.......

BREATHLESS

I try to speak up when words need to be said..

But I sit in silence and stay quiet instead.

BREATHLESS....

I cry and I walk and I laugh and I talk

But im silent..

Im not dead ' im just breathless...

I want to shout it out to you

But im breathless..

I want to tell you but the silence quietens my voice and I become restless.

With my arms stretched out wide

And my hands ...

I am me

And that is enough.

I am fabulous ' yet I am tough.

I have scares and thats ok

Birthing children made me this way.

I am funny

And quite loving.

I am brave 'yet I keep running.

I am strong willed and extremely clever.

Yet nieve and not fond of never.

I am chatty. 

I am free.

I am open minded to all possibilities.

Remember its your own doing that lead you here.... 

Blame thy neighbor.

Blame thy boss.

Your pity party is your own " dame loss.

As you walk ' talk and pounder your life.

Worries and struggles and a un happy life.

Your pitty party had created your doing.

Your pitty party is the cause of your ruins.

Twin flame

Oneness and yet divided.

For we split only to gain more insight to the true meaning of unconditional love.

You are my mirror ' and I am yours.

No filter or secret compartments locked away in our souls.

You see what I see and in return I am also your eyes.

I breathe and your heart beats.

I walk a million steps ' yet its your feet that bleed.

In search of a place where she can be her authentic self for so long .

In hope and faith she finds her place as she has landed in groups that wore a disgrace.

Time stood still but she did not mind.

She had her faith that her angels will find a home that she belongs too full of writer's and poets.

They helped her forget those who dont know it 'n...

Waiting

Curled up in a ball , a reenactment of her actions from a so called love life she invested in two years ago but has been free the last eight months and yet she lays here again. Hands grabbing her broken peices scattered all over the dark wood she calls her room.

Legs twitching as the shock runs down her spine,head sore and eyes on fire but she continues to cry to try put out the flames.

Lucid dreams

The soft fabric of new cotton sheets called to her, she answered and exposed her naked body to the coldness of her bed. 

A million thoughts flew passed her mind like clouds on a windy day.

Only for one single thought to be as dominant as her will to live,  a thought so vivid it felt like reality and she focused on making it a wish that will come true. 

She eventually gave permission for h...

What onece felt empty is now full of endless possibilitys. The scary blank stare is not a sighn of numbness but a gateway to create a story for her life , with out the interruption of the noisy un awoken world she is trapped inside.
