An Orphan's cry

Nberna Beryl

she carries her shame 
in one hand and sadness in the other
she carries a smile that fails because
her lower lip is wounded
she slowly drags her feet until they come 
crumbling down,
she cries out 
"MUM it hurts 
my smile hurts 
"MUM it hurts 
my hands hurt 
"MUM it hurts

Three Poetic Fragments

Theodore B. Dove (D.T)

27 Sep, 2016 10:33 PM
The moons fading light was met by the suns' slow incline,
Who's fair shine did naught but wither once in decline.
So is mine hearts' pulse only flickers of light divine,
Cast, in turn, into that wearying darkness of nights' malign.

- - -

Whereat can one find thou muse? Whereat must one seek?
Barren fields whom once bore trees, feel no longer roots,
And have so little thereof to speak; numb they fall to sleep.

Through thou windowpane cast thou eye - as do I.

My life

jazzy

22 Sep, 2016 08:22 PM
There's monsters in my head, 
there's monsters in my mind.
Thought they were helping, 
thank you so much for being kind.

I've been shattered and battered,
my body abused and splattered. 
New mamma hates me,
even wishes she didn't create me.
New mamma's taking pills, 
real daddy's not here right now.

I Died Yesterday

Boygene Borice

02 Sep, 2016 02:53 PM
When you stood before me,
Shining like the new moon,
And shouted to me “NO!”
I lost myself,
Coz I never knew,
That excess brightness is a needle to the eye.

I still recall your architecture,
How curved it was,
Like a new born baby,
So innocent to the eyes,
And kind to the lust of the soul,

She cried
She screamed
He wouldn't stop
What madness in this world
What bitterness can take hold
It twists the mind
And poisons the heart
Each broken soul fighting alone 
As he drew closer she knew what was to come
She begged 

She pleaded

Questions Never Answered

Kathja Andersen

27 Jul, 2016 12:30 AM
Why do i feel misunderstood
when everyone says they "understand"?.
Why do i feel like i'm alone
when they say "we're here for you"?
why do i question my life and choices
when it's so clear to me that it's all in the past?.

I can't see my future
yet i know it's not a good one.
"I want help" is a sentence i have never said directly.
Yet it seems everyone know
no it dosen't "seem" like that, they know.

Just a Little Cut

Kimberly

10 May, 2016 08:03 PM
Crimson red fills the bowl
With everything spinning so fast I cannot breathe
Walls closing in and everything fades
Flashes of lights come by, one by one.

Feeling sleepy not knowing your name
There it is, my favorite thing of all this,
Ah the feeling of pain is gone from before and new form enters me
Laying here waiting for you to come home
I open my eyes and see flashes of you and me from before you went 
You walk inside 
You call to me and wait for me to answer

I'm Sorry

Kimberly

10 May, 2016 04:33 PM
I'm sorry for the things I've done.
I'm sorry I can't be your number one.

I'm sorry I always put you to the test.
I'm sorry I can't be the best.

I'm sorry I keep myself in a shell.
I'm sorry I put you through hell.

I'm sorry that sorry isn't enough.
I'm sorry for all the dumb stuff.

Farewell

Darkness fever

28 Apr, 2016 07:25 PM
the skies shall mourn,
for they're masters of disguise - 
But no poet's hand can paint
the shades of blue,
dwelling in your eyes.
The spring shall rejoice,
and the winter will scorn 
Just like the sun; for it ever plays
with my forlorn - 
honeyed kisses of it's rays.
So if the stars are meant to glisten 
and if the winds are destined to cry

I carry you with me

Zurri

19 Apr, 2016 02:09 PM
I hurt with just the thought of you
The memories burning in my soul
Yet I can’t forget you or ever let you go

Like mist hanging over the ocean
And water drops hanging in the air
I feel you presence all around me
And wish you were still here

Is it weird to think I can sometimes smell you?
Hovering close and near
Or hearing your voice drift from afar
