The ups the downs and inbetweens
All started from my early teens.
The life I've lived is a story to tell
Some so beautiful and some felt like hell.
I do not dwell on my hell
Instead I admire my feet.
Optimistic and persistent
I stride with pride
in the knowing' I'm growing
No pain showing
My real strength glowing.
To bury both parents before thirt...

She's building since she was a little child
Not always living free and wild.
She learnt to take down' some small bricks
But certain things' make the bigger bricks stick .
Words that wore said
Never left her head
And made the wall grow taller .
In her bed the words consume
In return leaves her feeling smaller.

You can't physically be in denial after seen them take there last breath.
An Instant broken heart comes immediately after a death .
You see it , you feel it
You dream it.
Denial should be numbness .
The day your angels whisked you away
Was painful and my body froze so tightly in order to stay whole....

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
Because we lend a listening ear
To those who ...

I am your life span clock
I see you at the bottom of your rock
I see you at the top of your mountain
I see you indulging from all fountains
Not learning lessons
Poping pills for all kinds of depression
Crying in pillows
Dating the wrong
Not doing right
You sit up all nig...

We wait for a new day
Hopping it's better
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
The positive sound
It's easy to envision the worst
We cry so often
We may feel cursed

Deliverd to us all in one day
To be told her cancer will not go-away
Has left our family living in grey
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 ; 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...

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.
Heart beating franti...

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 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
Friday 8th March 2019 3:13 pm
She sit's amongst the piece's
Of broken glass
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
Thursday 28th February 2019 9:58 am
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.
I seen photo's of kid's
Thursday 21st February 2019 2:41 pm
At its best
Tightly squeezing air from chest
Meditation and salvation
Never feeling any confirmation
Always seeking an explanation
Anger is like a bubbling pot
Once you start
Its impossible to stop
Waiting for a fresh new season
Never needing a proper reason
Sunday 17th February 2019 3:12 pm
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.
And sore bums.
Walking the landing
While soothing your gums.

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...
Friday 15th February 2019 3:05 pm
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
Is it even...

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
And many more in-betweens
Thank you all for sharing

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.
The wind that shook the ba...

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.

Her feet placed firmly on the wet grass
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...

The building standing before you,
Was made from brick and water.
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...

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...

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.. Fuck the rhythm fuck the rhymes..

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...

December solstice opened a door
Something she never experienced before.
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.
Her home transf...

With a pliers
In a knot
Loosing the plot
Digging for the greenest snot
Buried to rot
Wishing to be a tiny tot
Sleeping in my cosy cot
Taking life seriously

Arrived at schools
Dick all hyper
Dirty man wants releasing
Young girl's seeking fame
Follow him ' you won't be the same
Enslaved by a monster
In hotels and his home
Left brainwashed and all alone
Girls full of a lust
for a man they can not trust
Wanting fame, then this is a must
Buckets and starvatio...

I try to speak up when words need to be said..
But I sit in silence and stay quiet instead.
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 ...

Today my feet took a journey I did not expect.
Listen up closely to what happened next.
I stepped inside unfamiliar ground.
then I Had a deep long look all around.
Ehhhhhh hemmmm _ I cleared my throat then took a seat.
I sat and waited patiently,
For The arrival of second class so I could support my son during practice for his commu...

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.
I am friendly ' yet im a savage.

As you sit there. ' in dispare .
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.
The morning breeze has secrets to tell....

Each day my feet walk along the grey pats, in the direction of the local shops.
I approach the same lady and purchase my ticket.
Some days its choosen and others " ill pick it.
Hoping tonights the night that I win it...
Praying to god with a bargaining ple and not realising my luck starts with me.
For I want it and see it ' yet, Im struggling to believe it.
Wrong attitude " if I...

An idle mind is the perfect work shop for the beast.
You may cook meals
But you'd never invite him to the feist.
dont give him power to plant those seeds of weeds.
Keep your garden for the prettiest of things like birds and the bees and great tall tree's.
vision them nesting ' flying and growing.
Life is about truly knowing and showing.
be productive as much as you can and ...

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.
I climb the mountains and yet your b...

In search of a place where she can be her authentic self for so long .
It Has left her constantly moving on.
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...

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.
Saturday 5th January 2019 12:04 am
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...

The smoke from your shoes has left me coughing.
By the looks of your speed
Noway!!! you are stopping.
You ran so fast and yet you did not come first.
but neither did he & nor did she
Not until I will become we.
Rat race ! Rat race
What a disgrace. Fooling those who have not found their place.
Happiness is a choice and not a destination
Prioritize your life and be happ...

The Energy was beaming from my flesh and bones ' imagination has always been the key we needed to open the gateways to our desires ' wants and needs
are all intertwined together because we are all the same
just on different waves.
A great man once figured this out in his moments of solitude
Many of us too rude or opinionated to take this...

Alone she no longer felt as her mind opened with great power and with out fear.
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.
She feels so deeply and sees what others can not even imagine to see. Every viber...
