I'm Fine

Julia

She asked me today if I was okay today.
Again the next day, over and over again.
She knew me to well, better than I ever did.

Answering everyday "I'm fine, okay?"
She just stared at me, my black eyes hopefully revealing nothing
I closed my eyes, eventually the years turned and so did she
She turned her back on me, because i never answered her the truth
Always answering her "I'm fine."

Once opon a dream
I wished to be happy

Suicide

timothy long

25 Nov, 2016 04:36 PM
sitting down, 
with a hand over the mouth, 
just thinking, 
what to do next, 
die or keep fighting? 
a rope tied up in the ceiling and the chair under it, 
suffering and pain going angst hand in hand, 
never to think again  clearly, 
sleep does well to soothe the soul but not the pain, 
cutting not a lot but temporary relief, 
stopping the hurt was what i wanted, 
alone doesn't matter,

His Daughter

Ashley

18 Nov, 2016 08:41 PM
She was behind a wall,
when she saw her father beat up her mom
She heard cries,
but soon found out it was her...
Her mother silent as mouse cried...
She watched as her father drew lines on her mothers back with a knife..

10 years later her father was gone..
She had no one to go to..
Her mother left her when she was six..
She grew up in a foster home
2 years after living in that home she ran away..

I have loved

Ramadhan Abdul Rahman

07 Nov, 2016 07:37 PM
It has been a
difficult road but I have learned. 
I have loved; I have lost; I have changed.

I have learned people
can hurt you so deeply and not even worry about you;
good people can change in a minute when their hearts
have being broken.

But the most important thing I have
learned you are strong enough to let go. People come
and go, that is part of life,

An Orphan's cry

Nberna Beryl

06 Oct, 2016 12:01 PM
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,

Spark

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.
