Take my life,
scatter the pieces all over.
I can't seem to suffice,
can't grasp our
Why did everything
have to end?
Or why did it
have to begin?
Pain is my normal,
misery is my everyday,
I'm glad our last talk
I'm glad you actually
knew what to say.
I promise this will be
my last good-bye,
we'll never walk
this hard road again.
And this time
I know I won't cry,
but ill be smiling
to myself within.

beautiful, care, devotion, girl, girlfriend, i love you, love,
I am aware that words will never suffice
We stand desparately
One in front of the other
Your face blemished with tears
So what did you do?
Asked the me, I once was
What will you do?
Begged the me, I shall become
What are you doing?
I urged myself
I stepped towards her and wrapped her in my arms
I had no words to offer
So I gave myself instead
My gift to her
I held the love of my eternity as she shed her grief
In my silence I professed my love for her
In my silence I revealed to her God's comfort

10th grade, emotions, feelings, heart, i love you, imagery, love,
I close my eyes, enamored by your kiss
and I let that feeling float me away.
The stars vanish, in my hypnotic bliss
and time pauses...extending paradise.
I love you more than mere words can convey
just to say I love you...will not suffice.
Like the rising sun, nothing outshines you
I’ll adore you forever...and a day.
Every word poets write about love...is true
it's as magical...as a child at play.

friendship, girlfriend-boyfriend, happiness, introspection, life, love
Suffice it to say I knew you before
you and I became so much more.
You started out as my best friend.
I started loving my life again.
We laughed and cried both with tears.
You helped put an end to all my fears.
Suddenly I realized I loved you so
I told you and you said," I know."
I feel the same you said to me.
But just being friends lets us be free.
Lets enjoy each other I don't want it to end.
Love destroys the fabric of being a friend.
Jealousy will arive and hate will come too.
The end of a friendship is I love you.
I reluctantly agreed but you were so clever.
This thing that we share makes us friends forever.

i miss you, lost love,
there's an ardent desire
burnt upon the umbrage
of my mind's deepest thoughts
on fields of green
i sit lost in the strokes
of time's hands
yearning to feel you
like a whisper of wind
as it twirls my hair
in its gentle breath
i long to strip
layers of life
that bind my heart
in the torment
through the valley
in heavy sighs
i want to gambol
like fragrant petals
in summer's warm caress
not suffocate on smokey breaths
in winter's colorless drab
i suspire beneath mist of dusk
laden upon my skin
and suffice in the bitterness
of your absence
through the traces
etched upon my face
as the years pass by

is a gift swelled inside my nape-
wrapped up in words of
love that suffice my desire
for you ignite my body’s fire
i tie myself snug with ruby red ribbons,
gentle whispers enveloped inside-
make sure the silver bow is in its
place so you may open with blown
kisses and perpetual promises
you open me up-
soft lace overlaying barren skin;
i disentangle and fall into your arms,
you kiss me like the first and we melt
into the abyss of marriage bliss;
my love, it’s always been…

should I be death’s curse?

depression, forgiveness, girlfriend-boyfriend, love, love,
She's reckless and a constant change,
Her ways have gone from calm to ill;
A love so pure does she exchange
But waves a warm embrace turn chill.
Could you awake to morning grey,
Or bright sunshine in the night
A storm that brews in early day-
Or an impulse shed by late moonlight?
Could you let her in your heart that's sure,
In your mind of ready thought?
Could you invite her sure uncertainty
And the frustration that she's brought?
Could you let me in when I'm a mess,
My sharp tongue, but gentle touch?
Will my love alone suffice,
Or am I just too much?

It’s very tricky giving gifts
‘Cause it can be a waste
If what you’ve chosen doesn’t jibe
With the receiver’s taste.
The hours you spend searching
For what they will love, you hope,
Often ends with shallow smiles
And the verdict clearly – nope!
‘Cause the vibe was off, the size was wrong,
The color or the style
Missed the mark that you were aiming for,
By possibly a mile.
For those folks who hate to risk it,
Well, a gift card might suffice,
But a gift that hits the sweet spot
For the giver’s twice as nice.

When we got married at twenty two
We said our vows beside a ski-doo
But then got marooned
So we honeymooned
In a five star, two story igloo
My wife said a stiff drink would be nice
But I couldn’t locate any ice
So I stripped to get numb-er
Then asked for a hummer
Hoping that my iced cubes would suffice

inspirational, nature, visionary,
What shadows hide
your dreaming petals?
Ebony srtains, pure
blackness never seen.
You Pimpernel rose
be your name.
Entwined with brothers white
so many hearts
A dream of Martin
in roots together.
An emblem for embrace.
The African star
will not suffice,
to buy your knotted gait.
But to see your wonder
afore I die,
I hope natures
not too late.

beauty, cry, love,
Take all the trees of the poet
and give me one drop from your face sadness
I want to blow the joy of the world !
Written on a bottle of poem perfume
Made in your face !
Suffice it to write to you ..
to spread smell of your face on my fingers
on The shirt of place
I write to you ..
Peel an orange !

Beyond the gaze of the sun lies paradise
The lights on the horizon entice
dreamy thoughts of many men
their hopes and dreams when
air is rent,
with love so sincere
afraid, yet wanting to hear,
love blossoms, will wings of hope suffice.
Beyond the gaze of the sun lies paradise

When a man brings his wife some flowers without reason
You can bet your sweet bippy there's definitely treason
Flowers are quite nice
But really don't suffice
However large sums of money would deal with the demons

black african american,
I tell you of a Queen
As dawn crept upon me silently.
The ear picks up on a bath prepared.
Breakfast flirting with my nose,
A true mother you are...
Her love brings solace to a community
and humbles troubled,treason ed hearts.
Caring for the young and old souls
I tell you about a mother...
I tell you of a pillar
There at every talent show
A savior in life cruxes
Mother of true diligence indeed.
I searched for adjectives,
none suffice you dear mother
I ended up with this...
Mother you are love.

lost love, lust,
when love is absent,
lost in the eye of the storm,
lust will just suffice.
by Christian Howes |
absence, betrayal, break up, farewell, longing, love hurts, lust,
For all those sins & reckless lies. For all the time and tears and sacrifice
And all his honest words too late, too shallow now to vindicate
A futile bid at any rate
And far too little to suffice
She saw the time that passed her by,
Too weak to look within and wonder why
Had torn apart and wrought to dust
The little things which earned his trust.
That bruised their lips and stirred her lust and left him burning in reply
But now it seems just far too real
And strange there isn't more beneath to feel
A numbness spreads and quells his heart, together seems now so apart
The ending once again, the start
The ever spinning wheel.

holiday, husband, love, me,
Will you be my Valentine?
Take me out and wine and dine,
Lavish me with chocolate candy,
A bouquet of roses would be dandy.
A diamond or pearl would be nice,
My favorite perfume would suffice.
Ah, Honey, I don't really care,
If all I get is a teddy bear.
You're worth much more to me than material things,
Your crooked grin still sends a zing!
Knowing that you're mine, all mine,
Is gift enough, Sweet Valentine.

Quick and easy
It's all so cheesy
Come home soon, please
Chinook ride overseas
She sends a letter
I've felt better
A spade's a spade
All this just to get paid
Improvised Explosive Device
Repeating "love will suffice"
Lines of sight
Bodies to drag
A fire to constantly ignite
Longest war in history
Victory is a mystery
In our blood
Till our blood spills
And our casualty joins the statistic

Hand in hand
walk along the beach
Calming sounds of the ocean
feel that zephyr breeze
Secure n Content
Mind is at ease
Cant stop smiling
never felt like this before
In heavenly bliss
as we lay upon the shore
The scent of his cologne
His gentle caress
Sweet n tender kisses
Head rested against his chest
He stimulates my mind
Could it be that my heart has
A moment in paradise
It all seems so surreal
Perfect moments like these,
are the ones that truly suffice
This may be the beginning
of something beautifully real
The union of two souls
That were meant to congeal.

Eyes collide as hugs suffice
Memories mesmerize moments shared
Time stills, passion pervades
Bodies quiver and linger in space
As the sun consents its heavenly gaze.

abuse, addiction, deep, eulogy, love hurts, romantic, senses,
Much like a lucid ambient layer—
I find myself floating down to the surface
Into the stratosphere without a care—
Projections about which I cannot repurpose:
Into my own inevitabilities;
Into the oxygen which I cannot breathe.
I sing the shifting dirges of stars
And the pragmatic proselytism
Of the rapists, of reapers and preachers.
But all of them so far have bled the same
And so many more will scream out my name
And none shall suffice as succinctly as
The one who hath passed her judgment
So fast. Posthaste I declare her dead.

fantasy, love, heart, beauty, beauty, heart,
Each night I see her beauty standing there,
My sweet angel of purity and light,
And thus, I know love and want her care,
My broken heart again must turn to night,
And leave behind the dreams of beauty fair.
I am the darkness, she is innocent,
She drinks the fine wine as I sup on blood,
Her human heart could only be misspent,
As I crush her like some flowering bud,
Thus, I suffice on the hint of her scent.
