A huge ego breaks off love’s embrace,
A tiny ego slips off love’s embrace,
No ego, no embrace of love!
A selfless ego suffocates from love’s embrace,
A selfish ego wards off love’s embrace,
No ego, no embrace of love!
A super-visual ego overshadows love’s embrace,
A deep-seated ego is colonized by love’s embrace,
No ego, no embrace of love!
A healthy ego humbly looks above,
A healthy ego can lead and also serve...
Its nerves know not pressured blood,
But developing it is almost hard!

crazy, funny, love, love hurts, sad love, satire, scary,
It chokes and mauls me,
It suffocates me as its venom spread to shake my heart,
It kneads and lives me vulnerable to hurt,
When you hunt it,
I remained obdurate to love,
Its obsession sucks my strength,
When the peril of real epitome of African beauty sprout her,
Chokes and desires of having you drown me into sour guts,
It is a suicide how this eerie feeling fills,
For it freezes not the frosted and fermented heart to freedom
It is suicidal how love is.
by Marty King |
loneliness, lost love, sad,
there is a sound when you leave
all electricity is lost
all water is dissolved
all air is thinned out
there is a blankness as time passes
all age is tainted
each era is ruined
every period is murky
there is a change when realization comes
what matters drown
what is important suffocates
what is relevant becomes inanimate
the golden road is now blue
by Robin Maughan |
You do not frighten me.
You haunt my spirit at times,
But my glory for God suffocates your wrath.
Your temptations are mere reminders of my weaknesses.
With God`s humbleness He brings me to my knees
and strengthens my wounded soul.
I welcome your evil as an avenue to prove my love for Jesus.
I challenge you!
I am a warrior of God.
I shall march over your so called angels who lure me.
You do not intimidate me.
I have God`s power burning within.
by Ralph Mason |
cold rock, who's gnashing teeth
beget torn lips and tidy legs
loveless creature clothed in rind
future queen would nary pine
fondleproof my guest
gentle curls no effect
your veinous tarmac brings organasms arrest
abandoned crusades confer pontiffregrets
what! the spectacled porpoise awakens!
the breeze suffocates
the sun withdraws
now must I greet your desire and drain your ample limits
by Chante Reeves |
fantasy, fear, first love,
the love suffocates us
from floor to ceiling
i feel tension everywhere
then the love suffocates us
i inhale his exhale
the red room is destroyed
from floor to ceiling
and for several hours
in a daze
i feel tension
i scream that i trust him
to combat his pain
he touches my face
what a mess we made
still, in a daze
the love suffocates us
by Barbara Washington |
just like a blanket
by john castro |
blood suffocates my broken heart like darkness suffocates the sky
remembrance of fog on a rainy day perception deceiving the eye
they say time heals all wounds yet it still leaves a scar
we can never again go back to innocence to change who we are
by David Rombo |
love, peace, pain, hate,
The pain that one feels,
For no gain doth anger bring,
But hate that cometh from within,
Burns like a witch at the stake,
Suffocates like a hanged man on a noose,
Back stabs you with a blunt knife,
Like uncertain delivery from a drunken midwife,
Love and hate both have pain and strife,
But only one brings forth life.
by liam mcdaid |
To me I saw you
you are still there
to be in the presence
Making all my stars fly
a summers day
to kiss you
all my dreams
even to the end
unless it gathers thorns
I want to be your Mark Antony
As my life passes us by
never forget the love
I have for you.
A real dream
made for a reason
It is so special
I can never find
the right words
You who suffocates my heart
The circle of my life
who has the very keys
beautiful to me as a rose
my very own heart
broken in all
that a woman
by Green Trees |
art, dedication, faith, inspirational, introspection, loss, love, passion, social, teen
Agony poisoned every thorn on this rose
Feeding the ashamed for what they are worth
In countless times, where did these countless hours fall?
Aura suffocates our senses
Leaving a trail full of fear
Fear of the unknown
Bottled up, your heart shifts
Feelings of insecurity
Breaking the glass inside yourself
It robs your bones
From the inside out
So pale, you stand broken
Will you follow the smoke
That was left behind
For you to choke upon?
by James Ph. Kotsybar |
It’s the quiet of the quiet moments
that brings painful shuddering awareness
that things are no longer the way they were
and will never be quite that way again.
It’s the hollowness of routine gestures
which once expressed love so casually
that they were as unconscious as breathing
that echoes sudden death’s meaninglessness.
It’s the emptiness of the empty rooms --
the pressure of a vacuum -- that draws
the body’s hydration out through the eyes
and suffocates what was accustomed joy.
It’s the unexpected desolation
that passively inflicts deepest anguish.
by Olivia Struthers |
absence, angel, desire,
I want you to touch me until
My ribs become piano keys and my
Lungs are filled with sheet music I
Want you to love the way that
Art fills my soul and blooms in
My head, I want you to hate
The way that I can't let go
I want you to touch me the way
That the crisp winter air suffocates
The corrupted inside air.
by Kyle Carlson |
Don’t consume now.
Spilling your ashes.
Suffocates my dreams.
Why don’t you die?
Why won’t you fly?
You only revolve in the sky.
Above my life as if you love to listen to my cries.
Watch my dreams die.
Within the ashes from which you rise.
by J Hamilton Gist |
Celibate to love
Suffocates accepting expectation
Felicitous suppressants seem vague yet expecting acceptance to gleam
obediently wile anger continues to...
Our bond pulsates as days and nights are misinterpreted.
Inquiry demonstrates how to be a suitable leech
sucking patience from the reins of guided discontent.
Joined at the hip
Severed near the center
What was once yoked to one another now hinges upon swollen pressure
The trembling heat of predictability examines the idea of being apart.
Broken rust the smell
Ripped apart in stillness
Should have left well enough alone at first.
by Kamila Godzinska |
death, fear, sad, war, fear,
My heart sinks in terror
that this beat may be its last,
that the pulse will stop.
I fear that the end is near.
Guilt suffocates my throat
at the thought of painting a grey mask
on the faces of those whom I love.
They fear that the end is close.
I shudder at the thought
that our names will be forgotten,
that their memento will turn to dust.
For remembrance we plead as the end is impending.
Regret poisons my mind with its toxins.
My aims aren’t fulfilled.
My life has not begun.
It’s the end itself that I fear.
There is so much joy I look forward to,
so much success, passion, love.
I plan my future with delight and hope,
yet I know that the end has come.

desire, emotions, love,
I am bound by every bone, by blood.
Captured in my mind, is your beauty.
You are loved more than love itself, more than life.
The peace I feel when I'm with you suffocates all my fears.
No one can replace your touch, your smile, you.
It's you, I love, I've watched you for a lifetime.
I've felt your pain and suffering.
I've shared in your laughter.
I watched when you mourned, laugh with me.
Cry with me, bring me to my knees, I beg.
You I love, if only I loved you as I love you now.
For you are me, myself I love.
by Melissa Ross |
Back the vanity,
And pure insanity,
That breaches my mind,
The beauty in all,
Tender loving care,
This cross I bear,
Hurry and flee,
I’ll surely be,
The one you desire,
That makes you perspire,
My love runs deep,
Let it seep,
Into your heart,
Into your soul,
Of all that you feel,
I’ll show you real,
When I swing my hips,
And meet your lips,

faith, friendship, love, time, light, light, universe,
It’s been a while, I hate to admit
It’s been a while, three or five?
The distance suffocates the breath out of it
What makes it worse is the struggle to survive
Holding on against all the storms
Holding on in spite of all the thorns
The lifeline slowly ebbed away as the horizon darkens
The universe scorns our attempts
Its illusive helping hand becomes
An element of our fake reality
We regretfully question our own morality
Then a light seeps defiantly
Evades the illusion gradually
For eternity, we are fighting the doubt
Finally the light defies fading out
There’s my savior ...
by ANKIT DEDHA |
emotions, encouraging, for her, how i feel, inspirational, love, valentines day,
I can't breath her in
But in her absence air suffocates me
She doesn't flow in my veins
But my heart pumps her so hard
She is not my vision
But without her light itches in my eyes
She is not everyone around
But she is everyone i see
She is not my damn life
Niether my flash, nor my soul
But a cute reason why i am alive
She is not my lips but my smile
She is not an angel
But the whole paradise

angst, depression, fear, girlfriend-boyfriend, words, me, me, i love you,
Daggers, Swords, Knives
Things that can kill in a blink of an eye.
That is what your words are made out of..
Break me down with your kiss of death
Breath into me that vapor of poison
That shrinks my veins
Suffocates my lungs to where I can barely breathe.
And yet I still can mutter the words " I Love You "...
you touch not gently but ever so rough
Your arms around me .. not a sign of endearment but a sign of hate..
And despair is what I felt because of it..
But yet never regret, for it is past
and it is a lesson I will never forget.
And I Build
And I Stand
And I Survive....
by Teresa Harr-Pena |
Delusional by choice
Reality suffocates dreams
Sleep is only nightmares
Burned by the rising sun
Swallowed by the mouth of darkness
One eye open, the other closed
Never at total peace
Restless at all hours
Turns between life and death
Laughter and tears
Love and mourn
The other eye closes
by CHIOMA ONYEKABA |
When money lies
Love speaks truth
Where money bears fruit
Where money sleeps
Love is awakened
Where money ceases
Love is amended
Where money dies
Where money breaths
Where money laughs
Love suffers all these
While money enjoys all things
Yet where love blossoms
Money in hell rots!
by Kaedence Morgan |
loveme, rain, me, rain,
Black clouds all around me
what has this world come to be
the rain just falls
the rain just suffocates me
will you kiss me in the rain
take away my pain
hold me close
and never let go
will you be the one for me
say i’m the most beautiful girl you’ve seen
say you love me more than anything
and make my heart stop aching
will you be my rising sun
turn out to be the one
be my gift from up above
by Edward Schmitz |
break up, depression, divorce, lost love, memory, missing you, pain,
To Reminisce is Poisonous
I see the ghost of our love
It haunts me to this day
In heartache, happy memories
Are slowly cut away
Time passes all too painfully
Spring flowers quickly wilt
Once together blissfully
Now many tears have spilt
The happiness I once felt
Suffocates this soul
My memories are a poison
Which slowly take a toll
Once more I'm lost within myself
Within a hopeless dream
As I recall my life before
How much happier I seemed
