Hush, my dear mother, say no more
(Shut up your criticizing, out the door)
I know you love me, want my best,
(You’re putting my temper to an acid test)
I’m trying Jenny Craig, I know I’ll win
(Your suggestions are tantamount to starvation sin!)
Hush, my dear mother, say no more.

To you. I dedicate this poem.
Sweet poetess across the sea.
I tag your name and underline.
All the feedback, that is mine
Your comments and suggestions.
Make my day.
I love them , to come my way.
To hear you say.
Made your day.
I will try to-night.
A happy poem to write.
Sometimes the Devil gets in.
Making my poems, grim.
I write with all my heart.
They are all truly.
Just for you.

voice as smooth as velvet
touch lighter than that
empathy that envelops people
wrapping them up in warm fuzziness
she has the style of the angels
listening without interrupting
saying the right things without directing
waiting for you to make up your own mind
letting you talk, without suggestions
cuddling you with her warm brown eyes,
she has the style of few who walk the earth

Envy the role, and the actress
Enjoy the soup, and the dish.
Love the person, not the looks
Miss the kiss, not the lips
Ride the road, not the bike
Smell the ocean, not the fish.
Grow old, but stay calm
Write bold, but speak less
Dream often, but cry more
Hope big, but make one wish.

funny love, giggle, how i feel, wisdom,
This house of hyperbole,
Does defy credulity,
Let's all exaggerate,
Aim to manipulate,
"I shall love you infinitely!"
Sounds a normal hyperbole,
"I never got over you!"
Am I a drama mama too?
You want me and need me,
But you don't love me,
Is that called two out of three?
Or more hyperbole?
Why answer such questions?
I'm always open to your suggestions,
As usual for you and me,
In this house of hyperbole............

She's longing for love and affection
So she tried to grab his attention
She let her "girls" go free
They were bigger than peas

care, feelings, imagery, inspiration, love, self, thanksgiving,
My nails are plainly white
My face with make-up but light
My hair fixed on simple align
My clothes on comfortable flight
Not that I don't care to fix
Nor do I want to match and mix
It's because It's not in me to impress
"Suitable to occasion", that's how I dress
Though, lots have said I'm a beauty
I thank but still be in simplicity
I want to be liked just the way I am
Anyhow, I'm flexible enough to change
Opening myself to suggestions
Criticisms even I take to attention
Remembering this, I do manage
Putting myself right or above average...

love, lust, philosophy,
Those soft ardent whispers bring rapture
Inflamed by carnal desire
Inhibitions released are not captured
Quenching the vehement fire
The final scene of a private affair
Long after the opening act
Beginning with innuendos declared
Suggestions explode on impact
Primitive instincts bring reflexes
Eyes dilate wide to explore
Hands touch with intimate caresses
Lips kiss then the tongue implores
A rendezvous of love or yearning
Humanistic by Divine design
When the need for togetherness is burning
It's more instinctive than refined

addiction, confusion, death, depression, grief, sister, sorrow, suicide,
Answers left more questions,
But lately I'm all wrong,
Daydreams to our song,
Even though you're above,
Forgiveness I have given,
Gripping for your love,
Held inside your prison,
Jerking our regret,
Kept the final chance,
Lying in neglect,
Nonsense as a gift,
Prayers at sea, adrift,
Quiet screams so loud,
Reversed into beginning,
Shameful but proud,
Toward the underpinning,
Underground so safe,
Victim of vaccines,
Yawning wide awake,
Zapping good mistakes.

best friend, birth, caregiving, childhood, deep, father, trust,
You are my inspiration
You are my belief
You are my life
You are my relief
You stand before me
You give me an embrace
You show your unconditional love
You present your grace
You make way for success
You guide me like thee
You help me throughout
You make me smile for free...
You give cute expressions
You give excellent suggestions
You give me motivation
You show your determination
You are my father
You are my friend
You are great
You love me till the end..

love, muse, night, remember,
Thinking back to his manly side outline,
Flowing slightly inwards, but not enough to perturb,
The suggestions of body hairs state humanity,
His subtle tan includes him in with the rough;
Smiling gently, he alights to my origami,
His accepting hair copiously outweighs my breathing,
As he hovers there to await the initiating signal,
For warmth and movement’s harmoniously laughing spring.
Constructing my suggestion and intention,
I lie awake compiling my words for his reaction,
Which settles me into life’s stance and symphony,
Of entanglement and sexual interaction.
by Mohan Chutani |
I would not take this forest path unless
to your angelic threshold gate it led.
All life, indeed the air, I do confess
is cherished, if your esteem they spread!
I can conclude a single thing my dear
I search for just your trail before me.
The traces only of your sign it’s clear
if I wander elsewhere, it does haunt me.
A path void of your love, I shall regret
for I may not relate to one but you.
My destiny is twined in you and set,
my solace only on a path to you.

lost love, sadlove,
So you don’t love me,
I won’t cry, these are not tears.
So you don’t love me,
You took your pleasure at will
Laugh, it really meant nothing.
This is my first go at this form..suggestions?

love, marriage, trust,
What's the secret that's kept you together?
Hugs that are stronger than any tether.
To what do you credit your long marriage?
Passion that won't put down or disparage.
Overcome by the volley of questions,
I passed to my husband for suggestions.
He returned my volley, his love I heard -
She's lovely - she let's me have the last word...
Respect is crucial from the very start;
trust for your spouse only God can impart.

emotions, for him, love hurts, sad love,
Maybe it's your eyes
Maybe it's your smile
Or our happy nights
That can't get you off my mind.
All those times you made me fly
You gave me wings and made it right
Your single touch that fills my soul
That fixed me up and made me whole.
All those days you made me laugh
The times you always lift me up
And all those times you made my day
Makes me strong in order to stay.
Those things make me fight for more
Stopped me from closing the door
Memories that make me stay a little longer
Longer enough to love you forever.
Hi guys... I'm new here and I'm still learning so please feel free to comment

lifemarriage, love, marriage,
His love for me was divine
My words he’d enshrine
But when it came to his mother
His devotion was deeper and subtler
All her suggestions were commands
This would be done on hands
Her failings he’d refuse to see
Even if it meant leaving me
Her power she wielded over him
Her terror shook his very limbs
His mother-fixation took its toll
Our marriage went on a roll
Its the kids who suffered the most
Of the sham marriage and love ghost
Inspired by a friend’s true story

With just this pen and paper i will fall down the rabbit hole.
"Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!"
Getting lost in my own mind.
traveling far and wide in seek of my messenger.

Alright so I know that this site is suppose to be all about poems. Well as much as I love writing poetry sometimes I like to just write about things on my mind. I also am aware that they have "blogger" sites, well I don't like those. I love this website simply because I know I can be myself and Know that people are going to be able to read and comment on how they feel or their suggestions to either a situation I am having or advice on something I need help on. So please just bare with me on this. It would be greatly appreciated, plus I still plan on doing poetry still too. Thank you for hearing me out. Have a wonderful day.

How many more words can I share,
to prove my love is true.
How many more coins must I spare,
on roses red for you.
How many kisses can I gift,
upon your neck your cheek and lips.
To gratify your loveliness,
in fullfilness of all that you miss.
My heart is full of guestions,
have you no suggestions.
by Ashley Beaudre |
dedication, devotion, love
My heart aches as I squeeze you tight;
Your tears run warm aside my neck.
You quiver helplessly, like I had never known you to be.
Torn apart like a rose stomped into the cement.
I kiss your eyes, and wipe them dry,
and the faintest little smile
breaks out across your weary face
like sunlight through the rain.

business, dance, music,
don't know where I'm going
cause I don't know what's
love is incredible
sometimes it makes you
sing a sad, sad song
right in it's richness
poor when the money's gone
tell me what the matter
cause I don't know what's
call mi outta touch
even when you answer wrong
say the right way
leave singing a happy song
say it wrong and then
they'll say you don't know what's going on
say it the right way
leave singing a happy song
tell me something foolish
I'll say you don't know what's going on

His spider web eyes
Delicious amber caramelized
Quick with playfulness
Surrounding with curiosity
Open to suggestions
Offering her Shangri-lah
She steps into his arm gladly
Eager to begin her forever dance
