Disillusionment of Your World

people tell me to

open up and let it out

but when I speak up

it seems they all run away

I don’t mean to harm

your comfy and naive world

the world you crafted

that shuts out those who feel things

those who speak freely

those who don’t fit in a box

we are not perfect

I sure as hell don’t pretend

that I don’t suffer

some extraordinary pain

unseen by others

but when you deny this pain

ignore the feelings

painted clearly on my face

you deny yourself

a true and real existence

you deny yourself

empathy, love and kindness

when you need it most

Haiku Mental Health Awareness Poems Poetry Writing Community

Write, Release, Repeat

Please put that damned pen down”

 

Go talk to someone”

 

not realizing writing helps

 

I don’t want to talk

 

don’t want to sit in a chair

 

just to talk about

 

emotional attachment

 

just to see someone judge me 

 

for not moving on

 

to feel awkward when I cry

 

I’d rather write down

 

the way I feel, without shame

 

without the stigma

 

of someone from the outside

 

forcing themselves to dig in

No Good Answers

Why do we hold onto things that make us sad?

Talk to those who make us mad?

Why do we look for happiness in others?

When we know it’ll only cause us to suffer?

Why do we put someone else’s needs ahead of our own?

Is it because we believe it’ll help out self love grow?

Why do we stay with people who don’t care?

Is it because we just want someone, anyone, to be there?

Slow and Eternal Burn

He put a match to her heart

And watched it slowly set aflame

He toyed with her emotions as if it were one big game

He led her on, made her believe in happily ever after

Little did she know, it would all end in disaster

She showered him with compassion and kindness

Even loved the worst parts she could find in him

It was never enough

He walked away and left her heart to disintegrate

She’s still waiting for her love for him to dissipate

Love Poems Poetry

Pain & Happiness

(Edited & re-posted)

 

In order to see clearly you have to lose it all

 

In order to succeed you first have to fall

 

To feel love you must feel sadness and sorrow

 

To let go of the past is to live for today and tomorrow

 

For a heart to mend it first had to break

 

Then you can begin to fix every last mistake

 

To know happiness you must first feel pain

 

Most times these two come together; they can be one in the same

Secret Crush

Her eyes were bright like embers

 

The color of fallen autumn leave

 

She’s certainly the prettiest girl I’ve seen

 

Her legs moved gracefully, her skin so smooth

 

The orange leaves sway with her every move

 

She has hair so kinky and marvelous

 

And a spirit so free and adventurous

 

Floating away from me

 

Just like the beautiful autumn leaves

A Simple Love

 

A love so deep it runs through your veins

 

Sharper than any ounce of pain

 

Connection so real it feels like fiction

 

Craving more would be an addiction

 

A touch so gentle it puts you at ease

 

Lighter than the cool morning breeze

 

A kiss so warm it fills your whole body with love

 

Bright and beautiful like the sky above
