How?

by markfahmy

how

How can you give up on the only self..
that never gave up on you?

How can you put a full stop to a story..
that involves other people too?

Love

by Nick Anthony

To think, you’re finally here with me!
After years of relentless, flirtatious banter,
Sometimes as playful as puppies, we were:
Other times more serious than a snake bite–
Always fruitless my affections were.

Unattainably distant, you seemed to me.
A hazy speck just beyond the horizon,
Across the ocean of my life.
And I, stranded on my little island,
Couldn’t possibly build a smoke signal
Tall enough to alert your look-out.

this time
I won’t let
your soul fall
into the sadness
you feed

I won’t let you
hurt yourself
as I watch
you bleed

Brilliant Madness (revisited)

by braveandrecklessblog

I live in a state

Of brilliant madness

I teeter on the apex

Of a jagged mountain

Balanced atop a skateboard

Precarious

I Am the Sorrow

by braveandrecklessblog

Some days I do not just feel sorrow

Some days I am the sorrow

I am the grey sky

That threatens spitting snow

I am the heaviness in your limbs

Your shuffling gait

Reluctant to get

Where you are expected

May I?

by markfahmy

mayI

If you’re going through hell,
May I be your drops of rain?
If in your sadness you dwell,
May I ease some of your pain?

If the world has gone black in your melancholic eyes,
May I be a your candles giving out light?
If you’re sinking deeply in your cries,
May I, for once, become your white knight?

Out of control,
No sense of success
You hold your head up
Just barely out of the
Shit,
Feeling the supports

Poetry challenge: Christmas poem

Watching the ugly come out
Stress and hurt
Fully deserved
As time marches steadily
Forward,
The happy and festive
Overshadowed by the
Circumstances,
Feeding the side that hates,

Life Matters(on suicide)

by 50djohnson

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The holidays are so lonely for so many. However, there is
always an answer better than taking your life.
Dear Heavenly Father in heaven,
I lift up this one who is broken.
The pain is too much to bear.
He can barely get up in the morning
Wishes he were with you there!

I daydream about
Dragging a knife through
My face,
Make the outside
As scarred and ugly
Just like the inside.
