food, humor, humorous, silly,
Love me or hate me
few people can take me
plain, unadulterated, true to myself
their compulsive need to gussy me up
or completely disguise me
gives me nightmares...
The worst is where
they try to make me
Suffocated in sauces, sweet relish
and pickled beets
garnished with green olives
and fussy-cut vienna sausages
all dancing in fancy chorus lines
on top of me
Oh No! I can't take it...
It just can't be!
What are they thinking?!
I awake with a snug sensation
as something warmish
down my back
by Dana Smith |
Sparkling fireworks inside his head,
Disregarding love, inviting anger instead;
Won't he get weary of so much pain,
Taking it out on the world is insane.
Transform slowly and surely mature,
He'll find light in the night, I'm almost sure
Finding his place where time reverses
Musing the worlds small petty curses;
Can't be realistic with a good attitude,
Can't be alone without pure solitude
A world without color, just black & white,
How can he stand such a horrible sight?
Some day he'll notice the small things in life
And transform greatly without hate or strife.

happiness, life, love, passion, uplifting,
Sweet the clue,
That does adorn,
The sweetest thing
I've ever seen,
Since I was born...
Embracing at an airport,
But not for "Goodbye"
But here to "court"
No way, but
A short while ago,
Would I ever,
Dare to believe,
This could ever be so...
Life carries some surprises,
Some are awful sweet,
Not every one,
Ends in some
I'll ask no more,
Of my God above,
Because he has returned
Your precious love.

death, lost love, love, wife
Vultures surround me, glaring at my ebony“ unsaved Soul“, Squawking, waiting for the
“Feast of Death”
The Sallow Sky envelopes me, destroying all thoughts of Eternity , a Love tear falls with-in
my last Breath
Where are the Stars, the Moon, the Sun, LIFE? : I stand alone scarred and scared ; “I want
to go Home”
See the glory of Mother Nature, touch the Robe of Father Time : To Write myself out of this

depression, forgiveness, me,
My hurt that can't be seen
The pain that came
At the end of my dream
It's presense, a horrible thing
I want to let go
But it just seems to cling
It's maker, still walking around
Unaware of my worries
How hard I feel down
I need to hate
But love gets in the way
It holds my rages and makes me to
Am I the fool
That you want me to be?
It isn't cool what was done to me
What should come
At the end of a dream?
When the star has been broken and
ruined the theme
I will survive
But just this one thing
I'm letting go if you can't fix this
(Dedicated to Colleen Bono)

10th grade, 11th grade, 9th grade, angst, anxiety, emotions, feelings,
Buffed out with time's fine emery
Alzheimer's stole your memory.
And you sit in your chair and gaze
lost in a perpetual haze.
There is little left but a shell
you're not in pain, but don't look well.
And when I touch you, you pull back
as if fending off an attack.
How horrible to be confined
especially trapped in one's mind.
And though I wish it weren't so,
love only adds to my sorrow.
This is something we will work through
for I'll never abandon you.
And when you breathe your final breath
smile at me, through the veil of death.

life, lost love, sadme, me,
Today I saw a teardrop
Just resting on my sleeve
He said his name was "Heartache"
And he came to watch me grieve
He showed me many horrible things
This drop of liquid pain
I tried to wipe this tear away
But it turned into a stain
The stain said, "Look a little closer,
And tell me what you see"
The more I looked the more I tried
To rid this stain from me
Another tear ran down my face
And was sitting on my cheek
My sleeve again wiped it away
Then he started to speak
He said his name was "Past Regrets"
"And the things you see are true"
But as I peered inside this tear
All I could see was You
by randy johnson |
(THIS IS A FICTIONAL POEM)
It was a horrible thing that I saw.
My girlfriend wears a padded bra.
Her chest is flatter than a pancake.
It made me mad because her boobs are fake.
She got excited when I started to flirt.
As she jumped up and down, the falsies came flying out of her shirt.
She was so embarrassed that her face turned red.
It was a day that she was bound to dread.
I love her and I decided to give her another chance.
I can't judge her because I always have a radiator hose in my pants.
by Shelby Wood |
hope, life, loss, love
Hard and strong.
Can’t stop from falling,
In love with your gaze,
And I won’t realize it,
Until I’m hit hard in the face,
A horrible reminder of this morbid place.
Can’t stop time,
And can’t turn it back,
Can’t change your place,
In a world made of class.
My heart shatters,
When you aren’t around,
And yet you don’t notice,
Until the day,
I’m gone for good.
Not there for you to admire.
And now you’re the one falling,
Until you’re hit in the face,
And realize you’ve made your biggest,

life, today, war,
You can not decide
You can never get back
You can not wait until tomorrow
today is the day
What will you do today
Today you can decide
how it should be
Are you happy and satisfied
or sad and tired
A world in war
where everyone killing eachother
Scream cuts in my ears
Faith - hope and love is your way
Choose your path with sensitivity
Because if everyone will
we can surely get it

Life is a many things
Sometimes life is a dark tunnel,
But every tunnel has a light at the end
I will be your lantern to guide the way
Cling to me and I will keep you from the darkness
Life is a giant battle.
I will be your shield and spear
Your spear to pierce through the horrible people
Who want to harm you,
Your shield to protect you
From the battles you cannot win your self
life is many things my dear
But I am here,
For you to use, to cherish, and love.
Life is many things my dear.
But you are not alone.
I am here.

There once was a sister most prosaic
Who's love for her kin was most archaic
She turned a blind eye
To horrible lie after lie
And ignored her sibling's mind of mosaic
by Kuleza John Lembi |
Dwelling in them, a soft hearted soul
Love plated but pain on its core
Moss covered mountains to cross
Full of merciless piercing stones
Mind invested into a battle of memories
Battle with horrible images of courses in diaries
Both ends candles are burnt
To light the way through the six hills of torment
Flooding down cheeks are tears
Shaking rough hands of lamenting songs
Injecting the venom of fear into the spirits
Made to be passed, though hurting beyond limits
Journey of a medical student
Like a terrifying flood to expose the hidden gold

africa, mom, mother, mother daughter, mothers day,
It began with a kiss of love
graduated to nine months of
mixed feelings which ended
in hours of horrible pains and
In the sight of your babe came a
sincere smile of success.
You didn't know how strong you
No shock absorber could have been better.
You stayed strong like a giant Iroko tree
in the midst of turbulent winds of life
You are my hero mama.
You patiently carried on the tedious
job of nursing regardless of burdens
Denied yourself comfort to make me happy.
Your baby I will always be.
Mummy you are sweet, tender
You are indeed a blissful bridge to the paradise

africa, angel, beauty, bible, black african american, god, racism,
Long ago, when a white man saw his brother's dark face,
He did not accept him because he was from a different race,
How could such a horrible thing be so true?
The scares, the bruises, all black and blue.
Where was the love?
Finally, a man was sent from an angel above,
No more war,
He opened up for us a brand new door.
A door where there was no more violence,
Where we could live everyday in peaceful silence,
A door where we had the right to choose where to sit on a bus,
And not make a fuss.
So, here we are today,
Each year getting more grey,
Do we accept people the way they are?
We still have a while to go, but we are not very far.

abuse, addiction, conflict, courage, discrimination, hope,
Every day I wake up
With less and less of a purpose
I keep looking to the sky
For answers to tsunami me
But with no luck and more grief
Not knowing my purpose
My path my capabilities
No guidance and I only have myself to blame
Blame for my faults and lack of hard work
My life is horrible and its only me who knows this feeling
I’m not blaming anyone for the way I feel
Just that I’m tired of feeling this way
All I want is to just be happy
The pursuit of happiness is so far from my grasp
I need help
I need forgiveness
I need love
I pursue happiness

death, loss, lost love, passion, people,
Life without you couldn't be right.
No hugging, kissing, or pillow talk at night.
Life without you just wouldn't be fair,
I'd have all these feelings too good to spare.
Life without you would be kind of lame,
Things would be dry and always the same.
Life without you is a horrible lie,
I'd probably break down and have to cry.
Life without you can't really be
For I would be very painful and insane to me.
Life without you is a bad dream,
You and I are one, the most formidable team.
Life without you.

emotions, feelings, heart, heartbreak, love,
Yay!! My 100th poem is complete!! Now I may be able to write my book now!! Please enjoy my poem "Feeling Emotions" and please comment!
Why do emotions hurt us?
Why do emotions and feelings,
Hurt the human soul?
Damage our hearts,
And make us feel pain?
When we are happy,
When we are sad,
Angry or in love.
Sometimes love is amazing,
And sometimes disgusting,
Pleasurable and sweet,
Or horrible and distasteful.
Sometimes it wonderful,
To feel emotions.
I don't want to feel anything.
I don't want to spring emotions,
When I know then,
That my heart will get broken.
Everyday, I try to understand,
The human soul,
And how to feel emotions...

The Soul Of A Man
By Nate Spears
When a man lies to a woman
He kills her soul
Accompanied by the credibility of himself
At the end of the day what’s left?
Distrust and guilt
In which relationships aren’t built
Killing her spirit forever
Crushing the matrimony given
By the creator of life
Your for better
Your for worst
Your for good
Making the soul of the man
A horrible reflection of terrible
Your for better
Your for good
Your for worst
Your for gone.
by kevin leake |
Glorious and beautiful
Omnipresent and omnipotent
Devine and loving
Deceiver of nations
Vile and horrible
Insanity and madness
Liar from the beginning
Sent from heaven
As a man
Restorer of faith
The truth, way and the life
Hope and courage
Eternal and loving
Lamb of God
Omega and alpha
Restores with new life
Destroys the devils works
Justice for all
Healer of all
Redeemer of all
The King of Kings
Glory To God

boyfriend, crush, girlfriend, i love you,
Burning fiercely in my heart is your love
Like life in the darkness of death it shines
Illuminating my path in the thick forest of loneliness
Keeping me company in the horrible days of boredom
Oh! How abundant is your love in my heart
Igniting daily the fire of passion of commitment and faithfulness to you like from the start
My love much I could say to describe how much I love you
But few I could type for words have repeatedly failed me to tell you how much I love
Because my love for you is best expressed in practical than theory

I DON'T KNOW HOW IT HAPPENED
A REVERBERATION MORE THAN A DREAM
SHE WAS NAUGHTY AND ALWAYS LIKED RAIN
I TOO MADE MY CHOICES COME CLOSE TO HER
SHE SPOKE LITTLE BUT HER EYES TOLD A LOT
WE SHARED DAYS NIGHTS AND EVEN DREAMS
I CANT EXPLAIN WHETHER IT WAS HER TEARS OR NOT
THE PROFOUND RAIN SHOWED ALL ITS EXTREMITY
THE DRUMBEATS MADE MY EARS A HORRIBLE EFFECT
THE NIGHT SCREAMED MORE THAN THAT OF A CHERUB
I COULD'NT RECOGNIZE IT WITH THE HEART BEAT OF NEWBORN
IN OUR THOUGHTS THERE REMAINED THE COOL VIBRANT WHISPER OF LOVE
by Tony Lane |
There once was a man who had found true love yet squandered it away,
And for this one transgression is tormented to this day.
He found the girl to call his own and bade her to be his wife,
But to the chapel he came too late and the poor girl had taken her life.
The day that they were pledged to marry he’d started for the church,
But highway men had stalled his progress thus leaving her in the lurch.
And with her dying breath she uttered the words to a horrible curse,
Now wandering has become his penance with no way ever to reverse.
The only name by which he’s called brings laughter from the cruel,
For he is the one who is known to all by name of the wandering fool.
by Elizabeth Kinch |
betrayal, break up, divorce, heartbreak, lost love, trust, wedding,
You promised on our wedding day
To take me for your wife,
That from that day forward
You'd stay beside me all my life.
Yet when better days were over
And money got a little tight,
You started being horrible
Causing us to fight.
You promised you would care for me
In sickness and in health,
And yet as soon as I got ill
You left me by myself.
You promised to love and cherish me
Till death do us part,
Yet you never meant a word
You've broken my heart.
You're dishonourable through and through,
A renege, a traitor
And yet I still love you.
