God, so cruel a plague upon me,
dreams crushed, forsaken,
even as I hopefully step
where the sun leaves me to smile
for those brief but celebrated
Through tear blurred windows
dear hearts that suffer more than I
can despise their suffering -
much more than my own sad fate.
I'm called brave but it is they
who smile through pain,
struggle for the right words.
They need not speak.
How lucky I have been
no matter my end
to have known such love.
by Andrea Dietrich |
At the appointed time (you know not when)
your spirit will kiss this world goodbye.
Sands of your earthly time will then
have run their course. Folks will cry.
Your progeny will be
left behind, and words
at this time
for you alone
will have flipped. Dear ones
will keep on their own path.
With spirit eyes, you’ll view them
from behind the veil where you will
slip, knowing that the hourglass of those
whom you so love will also soon be flipped.

Title 4: Flipped Hourglass in double etheree poetry form
by White Wolf |
longing, love, poems,
The turtles roam where the butterflies go
How can I say what your love means to me
A poem I write to hopefully show
To convey with tender words sincerely
My love for you continually grows
For in my heart I hold your loving smile
Inspiring me to write you endless prose
Our time too brief though your love does beguile
All I can offer is my heart to you
In return for yours that will never stray
I promise you I shall always be true
Hear my words of love and let them convey
Of my undying love until the end
For now this love poem to you I send
For Trust Me Baby This Is Love contest

appreciation, love, peace,
Times when I felt my life is spent.
Should I yearn for happiness?
I feel I am like a towel
That absorbed too much.
Has it been washed
Far too many times?
Or like a colourful hummingbird
that lost its joyous tune
And can only grumble
At injustice and senile shame?
Behind the dark clouds of everyday
The sun shines bright and clear,
Emitting golden beams,
Enriching the deep galaxy,
Around it circle myriads
Of gaseous nebulas
And gorgeous stars.
And as I contemplate this greatness
I know I'm not alone,
I smile a little hopefully
And feel peace in my heart.

beautiful, blessing, change, moving on, thank you,
Stopping by with a sweet hello to all
Mentally, I'm not over my issues
However, I am Physically well
I do miss everyone, even the new poets.
Hopefully, my friends know, I miss them
I am sorry to say, these 6 months have been the worst experience ever
Even I endure heartbreak and pain.
One step at a time,
I'm experiencing a big change (a good one)
Hello, and Hi, sending a small smile to all......

An idiom by which she's always stuck
is 'having one's head buried in a book'
The truth behind it, she was unprepared
that morning as she went to climb the stairs.
Stopping to lift a bottle, bad mistake
especially when one isn't quite awake
her balance gone, could not control herself
now plunging headlong into the book shelf.
Bruised head, bruised knees,bruised pride was quite enough,
thankfully, make-up would disguise the scuffs.
But then she only went and made it worse
by saying that it would make a good verse.
Hopefully next time she will be wiser
and not tell me, but tell 'Trip Advisor'

desire, feelings, giving, i miss you, love hurts, missing you,
I will send my Love thru timeless space
No other emotion shall take its place
And as it lands on the many moons
You will see explosions of their crusted dunes
I shall send it to the vivacious Venus
As she prays nothing comes between us
But some will fall on the warring Mars
As he erupts with rage and leaves love scars
And if it should fall on the planet Jupiter
All will be absorbed by its custodian Lucifer
There are many sides from this heavenly view
Hopefully my Love will make its way to you
Two sides to Love two sides to live
One will receive and the other shall give.

blessing, emotions, family, inspiration, life, love, mother daughter,
Treasure every moment
Every little thing
Every sight you see
Every word you sing
It will be
Just a memory
Treasure every beautiful thing
Every bird in the tree
Every flower in bloom
Every joy you see
And then that
It will be

the skin that tingles when lips meet
will probably demand forever
but this heart that beats out of rhythm
from the touch of a dream
must say no to a blush and promises
instead I'm beholding to sacrifice
what cannot be laid down
by cheryl hoffman |
As small children we are wide eyed and innocent,
toddle after Mommy like baby elephants,
go to school to learn with our writing implement,
our parents hoping that we don't act indolent,
As teens upon graduation were confident,
some acting wild while others are reticent,
finding our jobs and falling in love relevant,
some marry while others act more dissident,
When we get old hopefully were still intimate,
thinking back on our lives with heartfelt sentiment,
being nice with people till death is imminent,
eulogy at funeral will be evidence.

This is a petition to convince dear Flo to return
It's just not the same without her
Hopefully I can convince 25 people to sign up
To make her aware how much she is missed
If you're one of those who badly want her back
Please respond to this petition and when I reach 25 names
I'll sent her the complete list of names to show her
How much we love her and miss her
I'm counting on you!

character, courage, devotion,
Veracious voices that come out to play,
Wandering words tell the tale…
Mending hearts in the mist.
Where secluded sacrifices submerge,
Whispers warming in their waves…
Sailing scriptural shores.
A man stands alone in the baneful breeze,
Watching the world decaying;
The juggling juggernaut.
This verse is inspired by & dedicated to, our brother poet Tommy (Son of Spock)...who is on hopefully, a short sabbatical...Live long and prosper SOS...lets show some love...

adventure, life, love,
I'm always close.....
.......i'm always near
no need to fear,my darling dear
even as I ride on seperate continents
long distance's just a matter of geography
that the farther apart we may seem to be
more space is now clear for you to feel free
my sacrifice for you to assure safety and peace
hopefully,one day,i'll be rewarded release
but in the mean time,I battle,for your love is true
security for the whole,lady fair,is what we do
A moments passing,only a moment
everlasting will be our delights enchantment.....

Where are we headed? I know not where
Where are we headed? I know not why
Where are we headed? I know not how
Where are we headed? I know not to whom
Is it better to know or not to know?
Is it better on my own or with you?
Is it better if you come to me or I go to you?
Wonder is an aphrodisiac that may lead me to you
Surprise is not enticing but it may lead me to you
Uncertainty is terrifying yet exciting and it may lead me to you
Where are we headed, me and you?
Where are we headed? hopefully not to doom
Where are we headed in this world and how will we bloom?

love, me, me,
Boy you got me messed up
I just wanna fess up
About how I feel about you
And I bet you wanna tooo
How I feel is so true
All I wanna do is be with you
I know its more than a fw
That wanna go with you
But let me be that lucky one
Then I'll light up like the sun
Something I wanna tell you
Is that I wanna be with you
And you know everthing I say is true
So, hopefully you wanna be with me too

friendship, love, me, day, me,
I've been waiting for the right moment to
tell you this, and now is not the right moment.
The way you make me feel when
your around is hard to explain.
Every moment I try to talk to you,
my lips move but nothing comes out.
There was one time everything I wanted to say came out;
you heard every word and even answered me back.
Unfortunately, when I was done and you were going to
give me your reaction, you were interrupted by me waking up.
Hopefully, one day I'll tell you when I'm in my conscious state
and your reaction won't be interrupted by my awakening.
But until that day comes, now is not the right moment.

art, child, children, funny love, giggle, hilarious, love,
I've been given a fancy name for my illness
It may be contagious
Never before seen in my colony
I can't work or lift a finger
Nice to see every one rally around me
Even the queen bee is worried
As what happened to me
Even sent the worker bees
All for one, hopefully one for all
Giving me a hand
I'm going to a special unit for unique bees.

betrayal, dark, destiny, grave, love,
Living in the Dark
Never truly finding the light
A glimpse here and there
Only to be stolen again
By Loves Selfish Snare
Resting in a open coffin
Awoken now and than
Only to be duped for Prince Charming Evil Sin.........
I close my eyes and heart once more
And return to my destine box
Hopefully Never to be Kissed
Putting Emily's Heart to Rest
And in Her Dreams
She Once Again Couples Her Eternal Bliss.......................

career, celebration, future, graduation, growing up, growth, world,
Graduating college where do I stand
I know God has a big plan
A plan for me
I'll just wait and see
Where my life takes me
And opportunities that arise
My future is definitely a big surprise
I have this feeling inside
That God will guide
He'll guide me through my life that is
Hopefully one day I'll be in show biz
I love to write and read and learn
To be successful is something I yearn
To make a difference in the world
No longer am I a little girl

dream, literature, poems, poetry, rain, romantic love, writing,
Why I wait for rain to hug you
Why I wait for a special day to hold you
Why I wait for night to kiss you
My love doesn't depend on occasion
I want to love you all the time
Thousands pirated laughters
Thousands impair nourishes
Made some misunderstandings
Now the time has changed
All the promises will come true
Hopefully you will smile again
No one will come between us
You will be mine
And I will be yours
by Sandra Dean |
Life without love is an empty, lonely existence
Our birthright is to love and receive it without resistance
Pursuing this emotion like a mirage in the desert
Reflecting perceived notions left only to be hurt
Wide eyed loving innocence, oh what an oxymoron
Blinded by emotion and then the love is gone
Leaving the heart with scars that hopefully will heal
But at this very moment, pain is all you feel
With time, if you decide, to let go of the pain
Only then will your heart be open to love again

character, friendship, inspirational, love, metaphor, relationship, trust,
A true friendship is a rare gem indeed.
One is just as hard to find when in dire need.
This is when one learns who is an acquaintance,
Shown by a small yet significant difference.
Once the subtleties have been distinguished,
And those fly by night friendships extinguished.
Hopefully the true friends are the ones you keep.
As the saying goes, "What you sow is what you reap.”
True friends lift you to the highest heights,
They make your heart sing with angelic delight.
So many people have those gems locked in their heart.
Remind them often you love them and never to part.

care, change, cheer up, endurance, farewell, girlfriend, heartbroken,
Still holding on to what I’ve lost
Still holding on to what was lost
Trying to move forward
But still the taste of tears scurry form my sight
My vision was clear
Now it’s all haze
Still gave my best
But now still I’m stressed
Holding on now to depress
My heart is sadden by such sudden grieve
My emotion now will never be free
My grasp of your love is tenderly gone
Gone hopefully not permanently still
Still holding on
On holding still
by Brooke Dylan |
The summer is here,
sweet songs come forth
maybe there are no more doors,
hopefully this is the night of nights....
Let no one kill their rainbows
although, the world tries
They're not sure of the slow death of time
never really letting it go...
Cast aside the master of misrepresentation
They cannot say with certainty
why love that form and always flies away
with the eagles of tomorrow that never stays...
It was just a patch of summer night
warmth upon their skin so sweet
as they lay next to the other
with flames forming through their minds..

My words invite willing participation of mind and spirit.
They are meant, and sent, as a gift of love,
sharing something precious to me,
that can never be,
expressed freely in the dialogue of everyday life.
Mysterious echoes hopefully capture you,
reflecting traces from your own soul,
through the story and sound
of the words sent to reach you.
Thanking you for your wit,
since I could never hold you close enough, long enough,
please enjoy the words I choose to send instead.
Knowing you, and how I feel about you within,
even from afar, and when you need to be close to others,
can only be described as a climate of perpetual wonder.
