Abandon the past. Forgetting the future. Not feeling the present.
Majestic and poetic. Unaffected by the elements. Tested, undefeated, overheated, & cheated.
The air around me Shakes with the intensity of utter silence
A soft summer wind Blowing by me constantly An unchanged peace A masked gray murmur The Sun has gone now, rain falls She is calling me
He wants to touch me. Skin on skin. Should we begin?
Thriving Hiding Confiding
Confused, alone, naked without a home. Banished, abandoned, forgotten & hated. Used, exploited, sold, & degraded.
Nothing to drink. Nothing to eat. Nothing to wear.
Avasive & not persuasive. Non believer adoring you. Misreading forever needing.
Stay away from me. Stalkers, rapists, & homewreckers. Your all heartless & faceless.
Psycho complex. You have too much drama. Don't call me I ain't your mama.
Don't neglect what you reflect. Detect what's negative & deflect. With no regret destiny you get.
Random senseless acts of violence. Hate crimes of consequence. Justice has no sequence.
You wanted to hold hands. You wanted to touch my boobs. You wanted to drive my car.
You took away my father. You took from me my daughter. You took my virginity.
Touching no slapping. No pinching or clapping. No babysitting or napping.
Bullies make you cry. They lack empathy & compassion. No remorse with sadistic nature.
He said he wants a three way. The alcohol will make us stay. He wants to do it in the parking lot at the bay.
I just need a knife to cut fruits and to survive. Simple as it can be.
Two men, one island. A single fruit on the trees. Friends until the end.
There is so much stress There is so much pain also There is still some hope There is even some light now There is light right now There is you, my one true love There is always you

I need the air to Breathe in some necessary Nutrients for life.
All I need is us. For us to love each other, care for each other.
Panic, dread, being lost, nervous, & unclear. Senseless, without purpose or cause. Waiting, wondering, in pause.
Feeling of something worse. No manners is a curse. Impressions are important if you want to impress.
Hypnotized by the sirens song of seduction. I have an unclear whiny voice. Flowers & fireworks.
Inside these walls true love never occurred. A fantasy dreamed is too blurred. My point of view obscured.
At 13 I was a victim. At 23 I was a mother. At 38 I am unemployed.
You can't love. Without trust. You can't trust without love.
A havoc of ecstacy. Brain damaged euphoria. Disintegrated brain cell mass.
Is this website dead? Are my poems even being read? I guess it doesn't matter what I said.
How would we ever live together? You can't stand to be with me more than 3 days. You ignore me the whole time with your video games.
I am interested in the job. Or I wouldn't have applied for it. I wouldn't of went to the interview.
You think I am boring. You lay there snoring. You only call when you need some whoring.

Migration. Hibernation. Igloo Station.
Fly across the room. Help is not soon. Demise is your doom.
For eleven years I sit here in this duplex. No husband, no friends, no job. Misery, filth, stench, eats & mold.
I would want to work beside the ocean. Along the board walk at a souvier shop. I wonder if they have many shoplifters.
I don't know why I have not be chosen. Not for a job or as a wife. I am trapped & stuck in this hellhole.
To be stung by jellyfish. Not your surfing fantasy wish. On it you have to piss.
What's wrong with people today & from lifetimes ago? Some if not most people can't be reformed you know. To prison or jail is where they stay and go.
I'm stalling. It's scary. Avoiding the inevitable.
I don't eat cheese because it's not vegan. Enzymes are a living organism. Caravores don't understand.
Old people shouldn't wear diapers. Like babies. Too stubborn to go into a convelesent home.
Let me catch up. Call me don't hit me up. I hate your slang.
Do not get a sexual disease. Not all of them have cures. Only sleep with people you love.
Do I look happy? This duplex is crappy? Set it on fire.
Bullshit club cards. Price tags that discriminate. Different prices for different customers.

Memory loss from neuro toxic pollution. Exterminate is a solution. Demolition is a clue.
Do not waste the twilight. Embrace the sunshine. Share the universe.
No worst feeling in the world. When be raped. Being a child is a hundred times worse.
We will make it. Time will break it. The two of us together don't fit.
You are mean & you do not trust. But I will not hurt you. I sit & stare I will wait for you to come to me.
Construct a rope out of sheets. More dependable than shoelaces? Plan your escape.
Your world is silent. Your ears can not hear. Your eyes to not fear.
Their teeth are so white. Their skin pale. Their eyes clear.
You look offended. I was recommended. Was sended.
Don't run. You are the one. This is not done.
Turbo slurp. Offensive burp. Apprehended purp.
Your a slob in the highest degree. Look in the mirror, do you see? Partners we won't be.
There you were. A desire so pure. True loves cure.
You made me cry. Burning my feelings. My heart simmers to ash.
Somewhere over thee Irish cliffs. Along the sea side waves flip. Cast always stranded with sunken boats

Dehydration. Water the one thing I need. Water for me please.
I am behind in my writing. My life I am confiding. The truth I am not hiding.

Wet, rainy mornings Tentative sunshine by noon Flowers start to bloom
Snowball fights outside Hot chocolate with whipped cream Cozy indoor life

In darkness I see a speck of light Fleeting in my realm
I collect playbills and rarely view them again. Materialism? Snow lands on my glove yet I feel the sensation on my fingers. Why? Good behavior is up to interpretation

We are upended, Like a tortoise on its back. The world is chaos.
Growing up, surrounded by relatives in the medical field
Move. Get out of my sight. The world does not revolve
Lies are action books Misplaced on dusty shelves Among nonfiction.
Drink your coffee strong sing me your silly little song go home before dawn
My heart's on fire
Sun set after rise Gazed upon by tons of eyes Here, the sea line dies
Wedding love--rare depth Uncommon variation Sought four leaf clover
Feet pounding the earth Salty sweat drips in my eyes Not too much longer.
Sometimes it rains Somtimes babe, it downpours Will you still kiss me?
My future is bright Even though I'm scared sometimes I know god is right
Life is fast for you You should always get back up When you trip and fall
Doublespeak is a Language of lies put behind
Scholarships cause stress. Will the judges like my poem? It is a haiku.
A sweet summer breeze
The leaves surround me The colors inspire me Autumn is serene

How do you know what is real? Does it think or breathe? Or does it simply exist?
Little fish look for food While worrying About becoming it
Busy street So many faces So few people
Ideas Like thunderbolts Fall from the sky
The smooth ocean breeze The shining sand on the beach The cool calming sea
Standing in the dark Looking at the starry night Waiting for a sign
Life's a mystery One must choose to follow it Its unknown secrets
I am your Father! OK! Where is the money? With my last honey...
I am a phoenix, Ashes only bring rebirth. Your flames hurt me not
If they are happy love is love regardless why should we judge them
The beach is peaceful
A life, a future Determined by ambition, stars are the limit.
Everyone does it Heads filled with assumptions It's human nature
When I was a little boy
Today I heard you You spoke to me through a song Lyrics echoed you
Dirty skies and trees,The gift we’ve left ourselve
A cold stormy breeze Chilled like my once broken heart Grace me with your luck
Harlot in disguise Shrouded in perfect deceit As a sweet angel
Life as we know it Life is full of change Day to day it seems the same
I would change it all To be free, or maybe just me To be seen, as me
When one speaks of loss, Words pour from their barren souls... Sorrow unmeasured.
Rich scent of autumn, Pumpkin spice and apple crisp, Leaves crunched underfoot.
Autumn leaves softly Touch the frozen earth below. Winter comes once more.
Night looms dark and bleak; Abandoned path, ghosts of dreams; Only sorrow here.
Solitude is just A pretty word for those who Find themselves alone.
Looking for grants and scholorshipsGetting ready for college is tough stuffBut the path is paved!
Sometimes I feel like the sky will crumble down and pigs will fly away
Paper leaves do shake Scratching veins and tearing holes Their skin scrawled with death
Browning purple plum Flies are buzzing and biting Sipping her life down
Golden ray of light Tip-toes sparkling to the earth Turning dust to art
I don't know why
Drought but still drowning Forest fires and broken levees Must be summertime
As I gaze at it, into the eyes of the beast, so I see myself.
A dark, dreary night Sitting here, waiting for warmth Tears roll down my face The cool, breezy air Spring has finally arrived New plants emerging The joy spreads throughout
"Beyond reason's grasp." Excuse me? Look at science! We THRIVE on reason!

Summer comes and goes Kissing my skin with its warmth Smiling in the sky
The trees are lovely, green, red, orange, gold, and gone. Then they are naked. Leaves parade across
All life is music: tapping feet, drumming fingers, raucous beating hearts.
I see smoke linger Feigning fog, clenching my lungs A dark fever burns
A wilted building Vines consume the broken beams Bound to take it back
I will taste the stars And most likely scorch my tongue, But I will return To fly yet once more Amongst the burnt-out, dead husks Of those ancient dreams.
