Be broken

Doing its damn best

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

Cold metal bite

The urge to slice

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!

Whisper,
Urging me to
Check out,

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

In Need of Maintenance

by Nick Anthony

For months I stood there
Teetering upon the precipice;
It being clear what I should do
Yet all I would or could choose
Was to merely waste away in fear.

I Cried A River Over You

by irinadim

p1120360-pansies-signed

 

I cried a river over you
For years and years and years
Until all the tears had dried up

The river bed is parched ground now
Dying a slow death
Yet yearning for life
Yearning for tears
But my tears won’t come

Potent Power

by Morgan

Potent Power

.

Words
Like a Pallet of Paint to Bedeck a barren canvas with Depths otherwise Unknown,
Stand Ready to unmask me.
Call I then upon their Potent Power to Speak for me in Tongues
I would otherwise be ignorant of, and let them Spill Out in Endless Fashion
That, by some means as I may be incapable of,
Tell the Secret Truth about my Heart of Hearts.
Listen, then, with an Attent ear so each word may Fulfill its Purpose.
Give over the Admiration of an accusing mind to the Power of these pawns,
Which now I use so grossly to Unfold myself
And Muse upon this Dilemma, so Beguiling of nature.

Weighty Words

by Nick Anthony

How can a word cut to my core?
Slicing and slashing its swooping sword,
It amputates limb and severs artery;
Once under my skin, it becomes a part of me. 

Fervently it festers unseen and unheard,
Eluding a simple diagnosis of words,
Invading my mind, body, and spirit
Until we are one, and I’ve come to fear it.

Devil’s Table

by Zia Jane

Everyday I see you and smile,

We talk and laugh, all is stable,

But when you pass the lights go out

And I find my place at the devil’s table.

 

They know me there,

More than is surely good

But I don’t judge, my friends all,

Faceless pains under every hood.

If I Had A Scar

by Zia Jane

If I had a scar

Would that justify my pain as real?

If my wound bleed

Would that prove the hurt I feel?

If i was in battle

Would it make the hate and anger right?

Her words see
Me,
Accepted and loved,
Through them
My soul feels
Her hands,
And I’m
Warm.
