I remeber the rush. The moment pen touches paper. The smooth glide on blank slate. Infinite array of options, Potential, that I never had.    The feel wasn't all however,
I am not a poet, And when I do I try, I put myself down, And give up every time.   I am not a poet, Though I would like to be. I find I can never express My feelings accurately.

Ambition, my drive   My mission is ride all of these waves until the day that I survive, with my mind, body, and soul.
There is nothing better than spiritual convergence with the physical. When my mind wanders unknowingly into the deepest Parts of itself.
Art lets me release my pent-up feelings, Lets me take out my frustrations, Lets me escape my malicious thoughts.   I need expression to clear my mind.   No other thing could replace the effects that
  Preparing for Battle It guards my heart and mind as it has stood the test of time.
Crippled crying, face like paper,  pen that hinders and defies a vision made by slender taper, appalling to my watery eyes.   Chords that always come out rotten, voice and string both shaking, shrill;
Take Me Away To somewhere new and familiar A place without judgment or fear A place to express the self   Take Me Away Where I can dance to the beat Let the notes flow through

This island, who knows where it is Alone, but not alone. There is so much I need, yet only one thing I can't live without All I need it my art kit.  
Take away necessities, Phone, computer, keys, and car. Take away priorities, Without them you'll go far. Take away those who I love, I'll miss you but I'll see you soon. Take away my one true love,
The dance between light and dark Smudge here Smudge there Highlight this Shadow that Charcoaled covered faces take their places in the dace between ligth and dark  
A flower, A beautiful bloom, A well-lit room, A beautiful girl, Latina and lovely. She made my scars beautiful, With the soft touch of a sharpie, And the graceful touch of art.

The say you need food, They say you need water, But is that really all you need? Without those things, living is harder.   Starting violin at age 9 it was just practice all the time
Without painting I would be  Stranded in a world Without color.   Without drawing  I am nothing but a segment on a timeline.   Without crafting Time is wasted
    Habitually I continue my trek in and around my environment. This movement is basic and we call it muscle memory. But the memories reside in my mind. I never forget the time I have wasted waiting for my left leg to pass my right leg.
So Rough   So Curved   Words are   When paired with a double-jointed mouth.   I bend my words past reflexion Just enough to cause perflexion  
I curve, the lines flow elegantly onto the surface Dark curves, long curves, jagged curves and smooth curves All becomes a piece of the puzzle.
If I lived in a world without art There would be a hole in my heart, Cause it completes me  In a way no one else can see From their eyes, and it gives me reasons To live and learn life lessons.
So many days. Too many to count. I've sat here alone, quiet, no sounds... Silence and sadness were my only two friends. Stealing and eating my life from within.   So many days.
It is my greatest love, My deepest passion, The keeper of my sanity, And the pillar of my strength.   Without it, I am an abyss.   It resonates within my head, And within my heart.
What can't I live without? Some may say a tiny little screen that acts as a suitcase for our lives

How can love be sweet like a summer's day, When it will always leave a bitter taste? Capturing and blinding mystified prey, Defeating mesmerised loves in the chase. It smothers the heart in an icy grip,
The smile is a lie, a lonely cryMisunderstood perception of the mindThis moonless night no sorrows' death defyBut twisted and undone for fighting blind.

A little dot here A splash of color there Just add a little bit of "omph" everywhere.   My soul has been unleashed My attention must not cease I want to forget; that is my silent prayer.  
All I need is a stick of graphite.  Dark and black as the night sky itself, when no stars shine and the moon hides from the horrors besieging the world.
The only time you hear about Iowa is when you see this happy couple, or caucuses, butter cows, et cetera. Corn.
What once started purely as a form of entertainment has now consumed me. I have become it and it, I. I simply cannot get enough of that sweet euphoria that flows throughout my body.

The earth without art is just eh, and the words I am spewing is music to the ears of all who hear, poetry is my art, and it is the art of the broken, the art of the hurt, 
You wanna know what's in my heart, Take a closer look cause it's been there from the start. It stares you in the face each and everyday It's not hidden, cause I express it in such a way.  
Early sketchbooks, overflowing with drafts and dreams, connoisseur collectors items. They study my work, discovering the loose red underlines of

Raindrops on glass, taking you anywhere and anywhen. Places to go and times you've been. Universally sound, solid right through. Black and white with grain. Yeah, that'll do. 
My life was not always this way I use to sit only feeling suffering and pain I'd cry for hours myself to sleep as I feel my soul slowly slip From my body into the dark abyss of the cold world

Often I look up to the Skies Relishing the beauty it holds Adorned at night by twinkling Stars And daily by the fiery Sun The full moon so enthralling The wavy Clouds so gorgeous

The most hated people I've come to know Love themselves more than they should show. The last place you'd see them is low In their own minds that is, they're really hoes. Romantic and flowery, they unfortunatly spoke

Last night, you came to me in a dream With a stanza the seemed to be out of this World. You laid down. I turned around. And my first reaction was to try to awaken.
I Am Paint splashed onto weary walls That have stood over centuries of the normal person. Spots of color to prove I am different Than the rest  Splotches that don't blend in With the rest

I fell in love with an artist.

At first, I thought I was a mix of my sisters.   They were complete opposites: One was cautious, one was reckless. One did well in school, the other struggled. One was popular, the other had few friends.
It was there, Always there. In the long studio, In the one room apartment, In the new house, In the green living room.   It was always there. In the second spring

My life has it's ups. And downs. And it's starting to turn around.  
Random acts of kindness to the strangers we don’t know. Anonymously letting our secret personality show. We are humans that have universes living within.
In your colossal columns of sand and grit are buried, forgotten under barrels of fresh paint, Kaleidoscopes of vision and neon colors. fast. Bumper-to-bumper on 95.
To read is to step into an alternate reality
 To write is to build one
 To act is to live outside of yourself
 To dance is sometimes just to have fun
 To sing is to let your worries flow

So many photos that compliment your curves until I compliment your curves.. "Swerve" you say I've somehow fallen into a pool of not acknowledging your worth..
The power of thought With all the paint I have bought Thinking of my fate   Art always opens new gates Teaching will be fulfilling Artistic minds are always thrilling  
A fly Circles My bedroom
Sudden 15 minute poem before I sleep because Why not.
When it comes to drawing,   moving a utensil across a page.   I could create a masterpiece, but   have the eyes be lopsided.  
How may I destroy you all? That your image be cast away They commentate my rise and remember your fall Celebrate my life and scorn your dying day All of the former,make way for the latter

  Phoenix Rise The stage, the lights, the crowd I transform into a different character
I break my bones and scar my skin, persistently flowing with red rivers, flowing into oceans of pain.
It’s dark, yet I am tempted to turn the flash back on, Tired of the bright lights, don't increase the exposure,

Aaron Galvin is a peculiar name But who am I with no camera, no filter, and no frame? Who am I with no bio, no likes, or user name? I am me. I'm creative, and artistic, I have a life.

I watched a bluebird on a window sill She sat there placid, calm, and singing. We shared the morning sun out in the chill, We let its rays shine down on our faces; freezing.  
She tried drawing herself as a lover on the canvas of his mind He erased all her sketches when her called her just a friend With one innocent word, she knew it was over then
Shouldn’t it be funny
Blank canvases that inhale and exhale with motives to live. That's all we are painted by Biology a gamble in the darkness of who wins the lottery of appeal.   Sometimes we are created
There’s something
Ask me who I am in the raw, I'll tell you. I wake up like everyone else. I get dressed, brush my teeth. Most people assume that is me. 5'2", brown hair, brown eyes.
We as people are canvuses. We get to write our stories and paint our pictures. We take care of ourselvs. If not, we are broken. Delicate, soft, easily destroyed. Every story has an ending, deside yours.
Born in the Flame of the controversial state. They try to burn my fate with bias hate. this 1525 woodcut print by Albrecht Dürer
A round lens glaring onward Flash, Another memory archived
Chapped lips and cold skin, soft eyes, playful grin. Though I have loved before, Know, I will search no more.
She was sewn into me deeper than I was sewn into her but cross stitched we made a pretty picture. but I was poked by so many needles that I became holy, not Mary, cest la vie, this is the way it came to be.
I don’t know much about life But I know about art Art is a hard task; there are no shortcuts Art is not always beautiful It sometimes can be depressing The right brush can create a masterpiece
Praise be to thee
When we wake up, we see the sun, Golden and effervescent; Gleaming gladly with a smile at our bare faces, We shine in brilliance. Trying to shake things off to ignore the circumstances of Everyday life,
Long walks on the beach Looking into your eyes

Truth be told Sometimes I have no idea
I'm not a "girl" That's not my label
I saw ribs, I saw bones, I ad-libbed, My lungs filled I with stones. I saw her eyes; Green like the sea, Looking up at cloudless skies; Bel esprit. Who; Can I be?

I Need new Jordans I Need a Iphone 6 I Need is really what you want, "But i gotta have it i need it now" The pleasure of what you desire in hand is an amazing feeling. I want water  I want food

Life is bleak Like an empty page Feeling agitated, restless, or violent Ripped, crumpled pages, and broken pencils This block - The first step to a solution Is a problem Life is unplanned
The world: silent dark and dull No rhythm rhyme or beat Something was needed to fill the null A beat, both pure and sweet.    Some to pen and paper turned To make their world alive 
The world is cruel Everyone always fights I thought we were supposed to be together
So they walk with their heads down, Or look up at the city lights, The mirrors for their eyes Reflecting everything, For they have no feelings On the insides. A hand to them is a weapon
I am not too funny Not delightfully clever I am not beautiful, Being that my face does not inspire poems or ballads My tall lanky frame is not the object of envy When I walk into a room no one stops and stares
Suddenly the skies are blue, The grass is green and the flowers grow. Could it be that I'm finally happy. I'm finally free, I'm finally home. I dont know about you, but I know about me.
Some see the winter breeze as the coming of change, An end of the sun drenched days, Start of educational imprisonment. No more seasonal freedom. But they are wrong. Winter is:
I need to get my feet out of the sand It's time for teachers to teach. I need to leave these foreign lands It's time to hear reuniting friends screech. School has began,
Just when you think I’m not listening Just when you think I have zoned – The pencil that’s shedding its lead on my paper has made a world of its own. I’m hearing your words, I’m just translating…
When I was born, my soul was full of crack and cocaine Six months premature, those drugs nearly murdered my brain You called my mom? Mom like a stranger who gave me life Hand in hand. Soul to soul.
It is my happy place, my getaway
With a pencil in hand, I sit with a mind wide open The blank space lays patiently until I see the lines  behind my eyes ready to melt through my fingers.  Tip to page, the graphite wears thin 
Art is like a bird learning to fly Or learning to ride a bike or read a book -  One of those skills that,  once learned, can never be forgotten.  But first, it must be found.  
Ever since my hands could grasp I was doodling and drawing something. I speak through my hands, not my tongue. The raddling and shaking of my ideas within my skull
Onto the South face, my mind is a yearning flake, nude and bare I am.
We all search for that lighthouse When we're hopeless, in need of direction, it's not there. When you close your eyes and imagine, you can see the light. You find it.
I said i'm going to rise to the top of the mountain....wait wait wait... I said I'm going to rise to the top of the mountain. Stand on this stage declaring my Name,say. Because I am a king, ayee.
I say   Knowledge is key  
Beneath the surface of the Earth Within the geosphere The remains of another world Awaiting discovery in its million year slumber. The thrill, mystery, and satisfaction
With my pencil full of lead,sharp at its head. The line I draw that's a bore,but soon it'll be something more.
When highschool is over and graduation begins, there'll be laughter and joy and faces wth grins. When highschool is over and life offers choices, My words will be heard, my thoughts will have voices.
So long as men can live and live to see Restrainèd not in action's course or bent; So long as those still fall be-weeping misery In silent haze of prideful government; 
  The pencil  It lands on the paper, waiting. Waiting for the race to begin; waiting for the picture in its mind to bleed onto the canvas Waiting for it to be caught up by a storm of motivation
There is a fire which burns in all men, oft banked by worldly care   It needs but one breath to waken its heat, a wind of holy air   On pagan altar once it burned, its all-consuming heat  
A pug who snores and grunts in her sleep, Who doesn't regonize rich from cheap. With a curled tail and a slant to her walking,  And enjoys peering over curtains for people watching.
There's an itch that needs a scratchJust like an egg that needs to hatch
I have so many people in my life That i adore so much. But the people i perform with Have a special place in my heart. I look at all of their faces as family. Every day i look forward to seeing them
Empty room, bleak, white walls.Standing still, shrouded in a cloak of black.Poised, porcelain face, perfect to those who
I'm sad, tears down my cheeks.  Walk to my room, the door slides open. His excitment, running, jumping, barking. My smile big, pearly whites showing Jumps in my arms, licks my face
The joy I find when their near The tingling sensations that appears With warm embraces Smiling faces The sound of laughter wafts through the air The glow in my heart for all to see
Happiness can be found in the air or in your hair. Happiness can be heard  in the laughter of company or in the peacefulness of your country. Happiness can be felt in your heart or on your skin.
Nimble fingers, busy hands- A guilty head tilt off to the right  As delicate lines kiss the page. She spends her imaginary free time in a world of her own. Armed with a pencil,
Restricted to elements and principles Technical lines behind computer screens Dying inside the artist screams Let Our Freedom Ring Colors that have to have reason Not just for feelings of a season
she is nothing  she is nowhere she is confused she has been told who to be her whole life she has no idea who she is she has been........ Beat
I like the sound that emmits from my headphones, the colors that cover the pages of my sketchbook. The sun that shines so warmly when I sit out on my porch, Literally heaven for even just a few minutes.
I am an artist.Some people would say that 'artist'is synonymous with 'creator'--I am not a creatOR,I create AND keep on creating.
I sit alone Staring at a blank canvas The power to create anything overwhelms
The other me is someone only seen by few, Someone not as corageous or as sure of what to do. Inside I'm scared of letting others down, Scared of rejection or the real me to be found.
Art made from my soul down to my hands. Changing the world without any fans. It doesn't need to be on a canvas to see The beautiful work people create for you and me.
The thrill chases the chill
I found my long lost twin in France. Hanging in an art museum. She is pale with long curly red hair. Like me.  She is a goddess, born out of a shell from the sea. Not like me.
Fingers brush over my skin That is soft but resistant with moisture. Brushes tease my grasp. This is art with brushes that doesn’t need a canvas. I’m not organized, It's chaos.
39 Strikes of paint on a canvas telling me to, Never Give Up Never Give Enough Never Give Up Never Give Enough Never Good Enoug- Im Never Good Enough . . .
Listen these days I feel enslaved in my thoughts left to rot in prison.
Let me mix my colors with yours it’s the human triumph and universal theme to get the better of your wounds and turn them to scars Let me blend mine with yours.
Why do we need to do what the teacher tells us to draw? Aslong as I put effort and make an art like creation, I should get an A in art. 
It bleeds through me - A whirling current of color, Flowing from my heart
I wake up to cosmetics and perfumes everyday to seem presentable to the world outside. 
If you can't read the photo it goes-   Here I sit in this rut once more, waiting, longing. I wish I could stop but it only goes just, beat, beat, beat. And the raging thump continues just
I hear church bells ringing when I know there are none; here we mark the time by the passing of trains on rusty railroad tracks. The solitude is tangible in the air, thick as quicksand.
Soon they’ll be sitting me down in cold metal chairs, wearing their sanitized hazmat suits. They keep a layer of protection between us and them, afraid I might be dirty.
To the young creature,  jumpy "you don't know nothing" on her street, sedated "can somebody please buy me something to eat?" in the subway, and her name repeated on a recursive loop at day
The strong array of colors were illuminating my eyes the colors deepend my desire to create i gathered all my weapons pencils, paint, erasers, markers i decided to demonstrate my love of art 
I have a thought on my mind and a hunger in my core, I need to fill up my heart before it’s over.   I need to see the pressure rise just as I escape demise--
I touched brush to paint, Paint to canvas. Poured thoughts, feelings and emotions, At every dab, At every stroke.   Permeate it with life! Saturate with color! Drench it in richness!
Hours, minutes, seconds of my time.   Tic; Mathmatics
Here's what keeps this soul goingHere's what makes
The catatonic, ironic void of plutonic perception – slips off like sleeves. Tease a fetish, fleshed by faith Till base-lines of broader bones – sculpt an age with ease.
I would rather fall into a pit
I flew upon the fragrant wings

To design or not to design - that is the question Whether 'tis better to follow dreams And risk not having enough money, Or not take that leap of faith, And, by engineering, playing it safe.  
Creativity is daring to enter all parts of your mind The parts you usually acknowledge are kind But what you may find
Our art has no real meaning behind it And if you ask us, we’ll say “I made what I wanted, you tell me why” Then we’ll leave it with you for a collection of dimes So carry it off, this piece of culture emulated
The best part of art lies in the subconscious, Not within the scrutiny of a scholar’s essay, Not within the thoughts that the artist speaks to herself, But within the very muscles of the hand,
i'm sitting in econ enjoying the lesson when my mind floats away.
A beat A rhythm A hook A chorus
I remember the shouting. Hearing the screams behind closed doors.
The first time you called me beautiful; It was as if that word spilled from your lips and danced around my head like Native Americans danced for rain. Your voice: was an orchestrated symphony of violins and cellos,
The air is thin   I could suffocate    I am alone    Rushing through the fog   I ascend    A light   
I spoted a New York liscense plate hanging from your chest as you parade the streets, from one boro to next. The best artists around can't wait till' you come to town
If you really knew me you would know that I look at people the way you read a book. If you really knew me you'd see the way I tense up when
I want to scream I want to shout
The epitome of what a woman should be. I struggle to capture perfection in words You do it ever so effortlessly If by chance you notice any defection, its absurd Not timid nor intimidated by possibilities
"I've Learned" by Nicholas Jones.In my 18 years of life,I've yearned for happiness,And I've yearned for strife,I've learned of death,And I've learned of life,
Living since the day I was born, Dying until the day I'm dead, And in the interim, it is and has always been, a still-life of what's in my head.
Still thinking the things my lips can't say. You may not be flawless but it seems that way. The little things count the most, and I'll never let go of my hope.
Sometimes life's problems seem to inflame. This is my cue to draw instead of being in pain.   To jump into the world my mind creates
Paint my insides pretty.   My ugly parts are found objects.   Arrange me so that I make sense.   I don’t wan to be seen
Artemis unslings her bow, The huntress selecting an arrow From her finely wrought quiver As an artist would select a brush For his next masterpiece. Filled with the power of the divine
I hate you
She cried through the winter, and so the earth painted itself her favorite shade of green. She cried for space to chase her dreams, and so the earth opened into a sky of pale blue.
Golden are the leaves illuminated by sun.
I screamed. She was never seen. See what she lacked I carried and what I lacked she held onto so dearly.
Off we go, just us two inside the studio   To free ourselves and simply dance, to inspire those who desire to advance
What is Beauty ? Is beauty something we have on the outside  or something deep within Is it a woman with curves  Or a model that is stick thin  What is Beauty ? Is it a woman with the bluest eyes 
Today in English class, we learned how one wordcan have many different meaningswhich I guess explains why so many people lieand can deny it.  
I write to free my mind To suprise myself with what I find It gives me wings So I may escape and be alone on the sea   I write to free my heart From those who tore it apart It gives me shelter
   My eyes are stars
We learn what we are taught. We use crayons to draw up a life that’s already been planned in permanent ink. But we still try.
I am better at writingthan making a verbal speechso don't expect me to preach
Art,abstracted aesthiticSketching, painting, sculpting.Let the creativity flowcraftily.

I was born without the invitation of saying hello, yet you might say I was blind from rejection. I guess it was too hard to live a life of deception.
What is art to me? Maybe it's Common and his metaphorical love affair with Hip-Hop Maybe it's Ntozake Shange and her play that is composed of beautiful poems where inspiration could only come from God
What would you do, What would you say, If someone said to draw your troubles away? Would you paint landscapes of fire,
I pushed my hand against my chest in search of a soundbut my heart beat was no where to be found.what a tragedy I must be for my heart to have abandoned meI pressed a little harder but still couldn't feel a thing

Dear, (Fill In the Blank), I decided the “check the box that applies to you” on the form, was not for me. So I’m writing over the boxes. I filled out my address, my name, typed in the codes,
Words long lay dormant And out of reach, Like shells washed up On a barren shore They gave the turbulen expanse A settled beauty, But the waves left Nothing free.

I want to be an artist, but that means I won't earn money. I want to be an animator,
Products upon products Days lost to adulation Looking for beauty under rocks, in-between articles. The funny thing is, I buy all this crap, but never wear it. Hundreds of dollars spent on makeup
My mind— Which usually perplexes me— Gets excited by art. Likes to dunk the world Into color, and tack On words My mind is Narcissus who— Under the beguiling face
The buildings crumble slowly Cement walls expose once hidden dark red bricks Those who slowly crawl past the scene see the structure’s open wounds
The scraps on the heap of the world are art. I just choose to make them my own and call it my creative side.   Reality bent for societies' eyes Stupid, smart Unsatisfactory, full
Animation has been such a beautiful concept for many years. From 2D, to 3D, it has always brought joy and tears. So if you ask me, I must say, That animation for me has always been the way.

Connect the streams of dreams of the lost man   Where an ocean of passion for art lies   In the brain of his youth, while gaming.   Feel the crushing waves of the obstacles  
Just one job may change my life
One Job May Change my life  
  Hmm so I ponder and wander and wonder  What will I grow up to be in is life of mine?
      Pounding heart, beads of sweat. Obscene memories one can't forget. Uncontrollable fears, a constructed dam to hold back tears.
"All the World's a Stage," And we're just actors, right? But it takes more than actors To bring a show to life.   I was a little starlet Born to sing and dance; Born to thrill the audience
capturing moments within my dream world as they strut down the catwalk like ferocious felines willing to share my vision on magazine spreads
Eighteen years have come  And soon they will be gone For what I have dreamed of Is no reality  Raised in the West With the ideals of the East Standing out as an individual 
I look at him through a dark tunnel, The only light comes from the exits made of glass. Watch as he starts to stumble I'm hidden in the tall grass   Through that dark tunnel,
Ghost machineChemical combinesEssential electronsFlame combustionRed-wired boiling water.
Drag an eraser through your tears until the wet trails have all but disappeared A wooden pencil shall draw your lips up into a smile And paints may drop all sorts of bright colors of all shades and tints But not even a million Could blot out the
One Job Could Change My Life
There are seven billion people on this planet that I have yet to meet, and one hundred ninety-five countries I have not visited. Yet I am stuck in this insignificant town,
What makes me tick? Well, take your pick: I don't like to exercise But I like to supervise. I pour out my heart In the name of art. My dark corners revealed There is no shield.
do you know the unluckiest man in the world ?
I'd change your tolerance and guidance toward art. It's socially acceptable now but we all have our opinions. Some call it art and some call it trash. We all have our opinions,
Society screams
I think sometimes the sky should be a chalkboard that I can scribble on That way everyone can see my thoughts And maybe be entertained They would see ornate designs and oriental shades
Sitting on the bus with my ears plugged My sinuses throbbing like wrestling giants Inside my cotton-filled head, I learned Of a place more beautiful and sad Than any I had ever seen.  
  Just picture life without limits.
life is like a canvas u add paint chage the color make the design but with this canvass you are never sure on how the canvas would look or how people will percieve it
  Scholarship Rejection   Play this game Write these words Jump through this hoop Now do five push-ups Say the alphabet backwards Lick the dew off a flower pedal
When life gets difficult, And your cup over flows, Things go haywire, Objects explode, Theres no air, No air, No air you cant breathe, Your brain cant conceive, Wrong, Wrong,
Id like to create a world with my vision, Soaring through skies and being able to see the sun shine. The waves crashing creating a collision, All atainable with my dream of being in Game Design.  
The lights go up, the mics are readySet up the camera, nice and steady“Quiet on set!” Ready for the showAll prepared, waiting for my go.
Art relates to me. Art is the creative skill and imagination presented to the world. Every stroke of paint an artist adds on a canvas, every stitch a designer puts in a piece of clothing
Timeless Stone             An ageless face             Carved under sunlight,             Ripened by moonlight.             A tasteless taste  
Art is my occupation By Kyle Solverson   Art is around us and within us It is the fabric of our being, For we were molded into an artistic creation And that art was given to us  
I live in a land where the flag speaks red A red that gives pride and shelter until my end Yet to my Friends  red Bends to displaying the Bloodshed Of their countries Living through the darkness of the dead
Starving Desperate, Hopeless Wishing, Wanting, Begging College, Debt, Wealthy, Employed Striving, Achieving, Believing
Marked by shades             Chained by judgment             Being blinded by false imagery             Colors of white to dark             Long plagued our kind  
My mother of Resolution A mother of hope A listener of wisdom My detective of crime Understanding of all imperfections   Loving, caring, compassionate
There I'll be Face to face with the Mona Lisa 
Dust in the airGlaze creating a glare.
Deep in my mind Imagination was born, Constricted in bind My imagination had torn.   The walls that had lied, That constricted my life Are no longer alive.   Now that I'm free
She connects the lines...
Therapy pushes the mind, the mind pushes imagination, imagination pushes art, art pushes the mind to be free,
How does one start on a canvas? What makes a stroke of the brush? We all have it in us It’s only a matter of trust   Trust the colors you mix together Mix well your yellows, purples, and whites
I was a child (more than I am now) when my grandmother shared with me the world. She’d get mail, like all adults tend to, and leave the blank envelopes for weekends.
" You have sad eyes. Beautiful, but sad.  Like you've seen too much."           "They are the only windows, no?"   Neji Freed Television raised me Lifted me high enough to see
Its flawless face is veiled with tension like a bride on her wedding day,
One, two, and three
Having a heart of stone is considered an insult, But what about having a heart of concrete? Cold, gray, hard, rough concrete.   But what is that concrete were covered in art?
The tears burn my face because of pain I can’t erase I dream of an escape these four walls are gonna take me burry me alive without memories to tell I wonder when I die will I be accepted into hell?
A sweep of the armA flick of the wrist,Bold lines thatSpeak life into
The blood of what fills "Art" Sustains me, Controls me, And tames me for another day in this world Another day to survive the lies, the heartache, the pain The blood filled with the history of a world
I wasn't okay. Everything Was sinking. I would stop in the mirror, An outline of faded empty holes waiting for me. Hidden in the dark Alone and trapped, Art opened the door;
I couldn't help it, I couldn't.The colors wouldnt workYou couldn't get along with the others.You thrashed without movingI could not keep you.
As I look back on those days when I was young When the sky was blue and the grass was green I remember playing with boys and girls my age And cutting out things from construction paper.
Cold, chilly, windy, wet, I watch as the rain flies by. Quiet, calm, warm, cozy, I sit in my room and sigh.  Wafting tendrils of clove, The scent reaches my nostrils, Enticing me to sit.
Can art make a difference?   No, the question is, can art be a difference? Can art settle, unravel, disclose, and ultimately end the differences of today's wretched world?  
An empty casket appears before me I cast my eyes upon the hapless victim This man is my own self There are no mourners attending this funeraul Because the man is technically not even dead
man, who are you? beast, what are you? woman, why are you? peace, WHERE are you?
Where is the feeling? The absence of loaded words
  I wonder if anything in life goes according to plan Or if there will always be these little bumps The kinks in the hose that won’t come undone
a stage, one lovely place, act to your heart's content and there below crowds of people all await your very life the truth scares me but
I see dead people Every moment of every day. They think they are living, but they are not. I see them wearing suits Their hair combed nice and neat, Their suits freshly ironed
On the balcony everything seems high and distance But when its really suppose to be close But closer you look the less you'll see Everything  to the artist is empty And the view is a sight not worth to see
  I measure every Canvas -with introspected eyes- I wonder if it will fit- my beautiful Disguise.   I wonder if Some see the beauty-or just what it’s worth-
A bell goes off in the distance followed by chatter and footsteps I stay still.  
You,  who stand there and look me in the eye.  You dare say I, 
Sometimes I get horrible waves of deep, deep sorrow. They come on soft,
That one day, two days, three. Each of these days was filled with suppressed anger within me.  Spread throughout the year, the source of negativity resided in Physics class.
It hurts to see the table empty with no foodAnd my little brother walking around with some fucked up shoes
Its marks are left As the future turns into past And the past becomes all but memory. It can be found wearing The gold paint of its author. To every page turned Its sweet, silent voice
The thought of liking someone
What is it like to be her? Never sure of what to do; Unsure of every decision How to describe her? Fickle, Fickle, Fickle   She can never seem to stick to one path
She compliments me She says she admires my work I laugh on the inside but outwardly am pleasant She does not realize  that I am a mere dilettante of the weakest kind
Wet the paintbrush and mix the paint, apply colour.    Colours blending,  Ceasing to become anything other than  Pure pigment. I am an artist.   "Your line quality is lacking,"
Measure the lines tangent to the bags under my eyes;There you will find the accurate slopeOf how quickly or slowly depending on how you look at itMy energy is decreasing.
Most people wonder why I spend time alone Why I prefer being stuck at home Than at that party with people I don't know Throwing compliments and smiles just for show  
No more music, we ain't got the funds, No more drama, we ain't got the ones, woodshop is cancelled, all the tools are broke, art will have to wait another year, the Super he has spoke,

When I was seventeen in early January of my junior year in high school I picked up a pencil and drew something out of boredom  a doodle of a girl with a bandana in her hair smiling at the sky
Consecutive steps toward the threshold Yet 10 miles from the desired goal. Am I too fast or Is life too slow?   Reaching pinnacles ironically by hillsides Rather than conquering skyscrapers
I make something I can't describe, my mind doesn't allow me to. Dark yet bold and bright. It doesn't take long to look at it. I don't care if anyone understands it. It's mine! My color and shapes,
I am the one who everyone calls short I am the one who often needs support   I am the black ballet who dreams My dreams are real My hopes are precious My hard work is golden  
In this world, there is much hate. Is it a coincidence? Or is it fate? Years of bullying, discrimination, war, and rape How much more can we take? Peace is there, I just know it.
Her eyes see better than my own. She is admired by all. She has clarity, vision, and artistry.  She produces works of art so clear, viewers are transported to a land of freedom and possibility.
Spotlight warms my skin, I have a rising feeling, All I have worked for, One shot for the role, And I know the lines, The audition piece is engraved in my mind.   My life is better on stage,
I love good haikus             They are an amazing art         Too bad this ones done                                                                                                                                                                  
i'm a leaf being blown across the highway. A rag doll being thrown to the side. i'm controlled by my surroundings.   i',m dependent of what others have in mind,
Am I here? Is this real? Please teach me gently How to feel …………………………………. Ive lost my luck
The history of our ancestors have been painted on the walls of the earth/ Painted by war, painted by death, but hopefully these paintbrush strokes by God’s right hand may color life onto our canvass/
grey hallways, close us in, trapping our imagination ,  trained to fight, trained to win, similar to prison, I wish it weren't true, wondering about what awaits for me in the big wide blue,
I think I’m crazy. You see… Artist drawalmost anything conceivableDancers dancealmost anything achievablewriters write Almost everything believable And I want to do all three
You stand up there, teaching us this crap How will it apply and when will I use that can’t I pick my own classes? Go to class when I want Whys the government control us, I wish I could change that  
Perhaps art class shouldn't have rules. Art is not rules. Art is free. Art is wild. Art is a pure expression of how we feel, what we see, what we are, so maybe my painting
should we love like science with solving for X balancing the equation knowing the complexity of our bodies? or rather like the arts flowing like paint passione dlike a pencil on paper
I am from houses, From old neighborhoods and drenched cities I am from tablets used for drawings Colorful, amusing Clean stroked lines   I am from movies nights and eating out
It's an insatiable need. Hoplessly inescapable and all consuming, with a pressure that builds until you take heed. A final release of emotion, expression, a work of love and complete devotion,
Voice…what is it? Why is it that there are so many types?Some have voices…like the Mona Lisaand others have it as the crushedpaper you find in wastebaskets.
  What is color? Is it a mood, A memory, An expression of life? It is the iron To the fortress,
I don’t like poetry. I know, it sounds like blasphemy to an English teacher’s ears but I just don’t like it. I know, I sound like a six year old
You sit behind me in the midnight sun Urging me forward toward the edge  Always there my dark twin You are the sin to my light It takes everthing to fight the pull Oh how sweet it would be 
  We paint our hearts across the skies Pour out our very souls To the world listening for hope The messages carry by wind
So, I'm perched atop my study stool, removed from social interactions.  I've become a slave to post-secondary school. I derive equations, not satisfactions. I've been solving for x longer than I can recall, 
Beauty is created on its face. Colors swirling into a symphony, Creating beauty where there is none found. All emotions are held beneath the tip, As it glides across this vast unknown.
 Maybe She Would Be Alive Today. If I Spoke Up And Said What I Needed To Say. If I Thought Differently and Choose A Different Path. Crazy Thing Is I Didn’t Think She Would Last.
Why don't you paint me like I am? Dancing and singing Full of life Always looking for adventure, never looking for trouble With close family and friends by my side Why don't you paint me Like I am
The Gothic beauties that engulf my mind Create a sensation within my soul-- Such is the feeling of flying far East. Elongated and sinister is the Very architecture of His people. I see only images and movies
I am a lost canvas Why do I seem invisible?Why am I ignored?

I am from lands which weep rain unto us all;From cozy tapestries of cloud and trees like the fingers of God.I am from the sweet, bastard child of Gaia and Hephaestus,Where Nature dances the waltz with Industry
The darkness doesn't always mean evil, Just like the light does not always mean good. Thinking for yourself isn't always a bad thing. Right and wrong is an opinion. Decisions blind. Outcome unpredictable.
Knowledge is power Learned since we were younger for hours Stupidity is what I devour Teacher wants an apple better not make it sour I want to learn about many things Not just anything
Red and green bows Puffy, flared skirts Ballerinas, An instructor standing in the middle of the hall All attention focused on him With his long staff in hand And then I see them The girls,
To become famous is a dream of mine, I've told myself that a couple of times. Being known, Traveling the world, Or to be looked down upon with plenty of stares?
Creation unlike reality, expressing for lunar eyes.
I wait and watch to hear my name, I wait until to see what tomorrow brings, I wait and I find myself listening, hoping, and dreaming.   Ohio brings what Arizona cannot, Humidity, winter, blazing summers

Now I know that in and throughout this unique nation Success is based mainly on education So I was one of the few who decided, long ago To be the best student and make some dough
Am I the only one to look up at the sky and wonder What is beyond the stars yonder Like a sponge I soak up information About anything that I can find
The Earth is made of art. The richness that comes from the Earth is my inspiration. I am an artist and life is a dream and I dream with my eyes open.  I am a poet in hiding. Revealing myself throught art onto my canvas.
I stand frozen among the trees.<br/>Who I am isn't who I will be,<br/>I'm clueless,hunted by the gun of what is normal,<br/>until a deer bounds away on a new route, eyes wide, nostrils flaring.<br/>But I follow this rat rac
Men or Women Have the power to kill. Though we blame objects Like guns, knifes, swords, etc. Why are we blaming these objects When we should be the one to blame The people that hold the gun,
I wish I had the metaphors tolend description to the love of God.“A father throws his own son in front of a train…”What an inadequate thought. You threwhim from heaven to earth – no.More, he jumped.
People are unpredictable. If you think they are who they say they are, then you're wrong from the start. You can only know somebody, if you truly know their heart. But how will you know that if they cover up their scars,
  Sleeping within waves Her thoughts drift by-   The sea encompasses her A soothing blue blanket Calm, content, secure.   With each ebb and flow she sways
So many think that war is the answer, Yet is a cancer  Spell it backwards its raw  what is the cause of this nature  resources are depleting what are we meeting?
  I could be a writer. But I much prefer photography. Yet don’t they say that photos are worth a thousand words? All I have to do is put those words onto non-light sensitive paper. But I don’t because

From as far  well as far as I can remember  From the cold fronts of December to the hot summers of July in everything  I've done it was to prove that I could do  anything as long as try,
The world has loads of unwanted things Things that we think make us happy Our trust has been broken Broken like broken records our beloved Michael had done time &time again Our lives have seen enough
A heart frozen from pain and hurt can have it all melt away from the touch of love and passion, the shadow of depression can be swallowed by the light of serenity, in a dream the heart follows the path it chooses in life the mind constricts and di

I loved you so much,Your feel.Your touch.The way you walked.The way you talked.I loved it all, so much.
Most people call it busy, A constant movement, A flutter in one direction Get this: You have no clue you're movin' Caught in the crossroads Two paths to choose But some can't afford
Courage, the pride of a lion. The heart of a marine. Something everyone strives to acheive, but many fail. Is courage best earned when it is ignited from love, anger, or fear. The costs can be high but the reward is sweet.
I put my pencil to the paper to drain my mind of flooded thoughts No need to look at the page my hand knows my brain's soughts From my emotions to conscious subjects I write it out in a cursive vent
Today  We Fly. Today We Cry. Today We Sigh. Today We Lie. Today We Deny. Today... We Die. (Written in Trochaic Monometer)
Before I step on the spotlight, I dip my pointe shoes on Rossin. Adrenaline pumps my blood and my senses change; I am not myself anymore. Once the melody strikes, the brain doesn't think, it feels and creates something beautiful.
The flowing dancer spinning with the tongue the pen the pencil sentences tumbling at times only to stand once more graceful as ever   Moving quickly then slowly
She steps inside a world unkown. The place is dark and stars don't glow. She starts to cry-- she wonders why-- she thinks she cannot be fulfilled with just her dreams.
Art is art to whom it is shown it does not need wit or pride but love and reality. As the hands of the creator, creates the soul of the artist is put in to his art work.
  Revel in many, first the art of fear. To paint fond pictures of the coming day, To abscond the life I hold closely dear, When butterflies can soon fly astray,
  The skin that I am in is my own For it is something that  I could never loan It is the bark on my bones the shell on my back It is the canvas of life for the voice that I lack
Why don't I be someone who can achieve greatness in wealth, in propserity, and health?   Why don't I be something that guarantees a home and a life without struggles and strife?  
The word must get out Without a sound, It must be louder than a shout!   The word is not heard Nor is it seen, It must be felt within the heart!
I'm writing because I'm angry. I'm writing because I'm sad. I'm writing because I'm lost. I'm writing because I'm mad.  Words are my escape. It is like they understand. I can express my true feelings,
    With you? The monsters don't seem so scary. And life? Not so tough. You are the sunshine to my darkness. You keep me safe beside you.  
I could say I write because it is an outlet, a way to release anger from a broken past and broken family. I could say I write because my mom was not there, because sometimes I write to convince myself that I don't hate her.
With this paper and pen I turn my pain into an artistic expressive manifestation Thoughts strewn across the membrane of each cell That identify as my being  
When I close my eyes all I can see is your face wanting to get me.           That's why I write When I go to lay in bed at night all I can feel is your hands on me.           That's why I write
As children we scribbled on paper so white, Counting the colors, Enjoying the sight, Of the marvelous splendor, Of something we made, Showed it to mom, Then went out and played.  
I Need To Write  
a cluttered studio full of only art how does so many ideas exist?   we sit down at a worn wooden table pulling out some moist red clay
With each stroke and drip of paint there is emotion ... There is a message By seducing the canvas with paint I am portraying some presage I want to be seen, I want to be heard I want people to think
Books would be different, Dr. Seuss would be pointless, Poems are an art.
Being rewarded: to receive something for doing something. It's a great feeling whether it be cash or whatever with we're dealing.  It sort of a mental healing.  To feel accepted and recognized,
  The familiar thwack of shoulder pads colliding filled the air. My heart pounded from the run over. My eyes searched for him on the field. Then I saw the familiar skinny, much too pale limbs,
Ideas, Jumbled in my head, pulsating, spinning, swirling I look at the blank document, white space Music lightly decorating the room Fingertips tingling, a quick impulsive burst of energy thrust onto the screen
-You lie through your teeth When it comes to how-are-you’s “I’m good” or “I’m okay,” Is what you’d instead say -Feeling lonely day by day Not that you weren’t alone in the first place
There are days that I findI do not identify with the me thatreflects in the sight of others.Lost in my subliminal mind,when ink spills and pen is broken,my quiet tongue is the ripple
As the sunlight slips between my fingertipsI watch the shadows fallThey fall in lacy breaths over my skin,Making darkness and light seem so intricate
I write this poem is for you,Because you have an honest soul,Because you've cried yourself to sleep at night at least once before.

I watch my art producing, the many thoughts that come alive Each piece producing, as the pages turn one by one and the many works begin
Smooth, wood shelf, open and close Silver, shiny curves, empty dome White powder, packs and flies Pure crystals, numerous and fine Pale yellow, takes a new form Flowing liquid, slowly pour
     Cuando plasmo en papel dejo huella de mi alma, la poesía libera mis más profundos pensamientos me alivia como el aire del viento.
Expression is my life.  Poetry allows me to be me, it allows me to be free. Drawing, painting, writing  All forms of art, are dear to my heart.   Expression is my life.    
Uneventfully I awoke. Unsurprisingly the sun beating hot on the single paned windows – Caused dew drops of moisture to form Dragging myself out of bed, Discarding one used shirt for another,
He had the hands of a construction worker Slit and scarred by boxcutters grinded and calloused by stretching canvas punched with holes from missed stapling
Do we let ourselves get consumed within our personal nations; A victim of our differences by nationality? What about the genetic equations of our emotions, And the resulting masterpiece of our emotionality?
As the ocean conforts me. The only thing between, Me and the sea, Is the air I breath.   As the tide comes in, I feel safe within. As the tide goes out, It takes my doubts.  
I can never speak, the words come out  twisted and jumbled and ran together as if the sentences I form were hit by a train on its track   When I write everything comes out clearly I can write on for 
It is elegant as a mute swan, As rhythmic as the beating of a drum,  That is poetry. It portrays detailed visions, The world as seen through the writers eyes, That is poetry. It is as long as life,
To me, art is the ninth wonder of the world, The yin-yang, the peace, and the harmony of life, A mystery yet to be unraveled,
  To me, ART has boundaries. It must Be more than expressive ugliness or even sheer beauty. The purest ART holds An ability to swiftly, discretely, completely arrest its viewer, transforming his eyes into those of the
I want to be lost in art. I want to be an artist who doesn't have a care in the world, No need for looks or fancy clothes. Content I want to feel extreme passion about what I make,
I want to be lost in art. I want to be an artist who doesn't have a care in the world, No need for looks or fancy clothes. Content I want to feel extreme passion about what I make,
A moment of peace when only our thoughts become our speech Our minds rewind as waves shower back against the sea, The passage in time with no utter sound or words that feel bleak,
Deep within my soul this story untold Of love life happiness and dreams deferred A poet’s passion Let my pen lead you down, down this road if you dare To tell a passion of poetry a love so deep none could tear
Hear their sickened words their twisted lies taste the poison on their tongues   Isolated and alone i hide in the shadows away from the evil away from their world  
Poetry is an art,  A meduim of words.  It can come from the mind,  Showing passion or pain.    I write to express,  It becomes an outlet for emotions.  Only for my eyes, 
There it is: nowhere, the idea has left Like a lightning bolt striking the air, and as deft As a mouse escaping beneath the stair- Where it has gone to I never shall know Nor am I intent on finding out anymore- 
Art is the millisecond one awakes from a coma,
I never liked poetry I never understood what it meant There was too much metaphor Without any intent   I never liked poetry Music was my medium At least most songs rhymed
Poetry is an art of itself, No rules, No sentences, poetry has a mind of its own It may rhyme from time to time, Or it may Haiku, A five seven five format Used inside this poem
My Reason Why? In life there are struggles And when the storm hits there is the question, why? Why did she leave, why are you here, And why are there so many deaths in the city?

Art, mind, body, soul. All are connected. Poetry, theatre, dance, sing. All are therapy. With therapy we join. With therapy we live.
You were like a painting I couldn’t finishA mural in my mind, how I planned to love youYou were my canvas,Each day you made me smile,A streak of golden yellow I’d paintEach day I woke up thinking of you,
I am a humble man,  No hero, king or saint.  My purpose is my brush,  My canvas and my paint.    My Dear, I have this gift -  I paint all that I see, And everything I paint
Look up at the sky, what do you see? I see a bird looking down at me. What does it see when it looks at me? Nothing, as I see nothing in me.   Why do you not have any hope?
  The art is never visual to the eye. It’s not always painted and framed on walls, Nor has it always consisted of paints.
Poetry is a form of expression. Creativity using only words.   Poetry is the way words are arranged, And the passion behind those words.   Poetry is art.
Scared. Have you ever been so scared of losing it (your Gift from God) that you'd never get that lucky break, the prize you'd win if only you could change the stakes erase the fate
When I was nine, I thought that every time my mom received a new name That I received it too.   I thought that names were like purple You can’t forget the red and the blue.

Away in her room, the little maiden sits, Sent there for throwing too many fits. Her brunette locks rest on her broad shoulders and cascade down,
I am a writer A musical writer I write in song in rythmic song my writing has notes my writing may be notes It may be whacked Or out of order but this is my writing
Stop Listen The thrumming of the music Vibrating through your mind Painting a picture no other can see   Stroke Erase Your hand moves on its own Making the mind real
  The creations from within, are inner expressions of my core self, spilled onto the canvas & Paper. The creations from within, is a tool I use to connect with my higher guidance to guide me through new creative pathways.
Ink, thick in the air wafts a seductive tale of permanence.   The room is abuzz with anticipation and cat-scratch pain.   The prick, the squeal of newly minted adults
discover knowledge imagine possible world create future ART
In the dead of night, crickets play their song. I lay on the cold dirt ground, while in your arms. Look up, you say. A diamond filled like sky. I see a smile.
Words swirl inside my head like pillars of light, I grasp onto the strands and wait: I wait for them to makes sense, Incoherent buzzes of truth are all I have.
My mind is spontaneous; at times I want to scream. But that is too extreme. Sometimes, I can't say what I mean to say. Oral words are sculpted for the outside's way.
When I was young words would jump at me, and land on the pages I turned. With each "swish" of the page new words gave birth on the thin white sheets. Spectators marveled at my unraveled gift.
I envy those who can create fine art. With brilliant strokes the make masterpieces. Colors flow and blend for a grand effect. They do not realize how lucky they are To have the skill to bring forth such beauty.
I was always fascinated by the universe of New York and all the stars that hailed from its solar system but Brooklyn was a bitter taste that was hard to swallow.
For the "I Am... Scholarship Slam."   We write, we hide, we live our lives in coffee shops, sippin' tea from little mugs, stains on our teeth, contemplating the meaning of life.  
I wrote a letter of uncertainty I scribed in sweet remembrance I scripted dialogue to make me laugh, when I hurt myself My words are drenched, in sorrows that I wrote about
“It is said that Prometheus ascended into heaven and secretly lit his torch at the chariot of Helios, in order to bring down fire to man”
Anger. Love. Strength. Weakness. Hate. Fear. I write for them. They take over. They use my pen to escape. Word By Word. Once they start, they do not stop.
Seamus Heaney wrote of his admiration for his family, they are determined people- something Seamus wants to be. He knew he couldn't compete with them in their talent,
these hands, subjacent to my heart, brush tears from eyes, push water through space, teach children to swim, feed hungry lost souls, faith, make art, heal wounds, and open doors... for you.

Anxiousness bubbles in me, boils in my veins, as paint falls before me. Color swirls, twirls at my fingertips, all my doing. I twist, curl, twirl the paint brush, stroking freely,

She has magic in her hands The wand is her pen She delicately draws the lines Then she eloquently makes them refined She doesn’t do it to waste time She does it to clear her mind
I cannot draw to save my life,Nor paint nor sculpt nor color;I cannot build inspired domes,Nor compose a simple measure.
The plight of the artist is one unable to be understood by others, By those who assume that an artist has it easy, Those who believe that art is a commodity.
Blank and barren pages have been my eternal enemy Hours tick by The start of a new battle Pencil and ink strike first Blood flowing Making me whole for just another moment “You are no one!”
Creation Of everything, of nothing Birth of lives, Called upon by lightning; A connection unbroken Unexplained, undefined, unmatched. One touch Creates one world

Imma call u picasso let my heart be your canvas.. get creative but gentle cuz my heart can b easily damaged, sometimes hard to manage, but well worth the investment.. my loves like a disease dont test it
If I were an artist I’d bathe myself in color And allow my art to consume me I’d wash myself with charcoal And paint my features with pastel I would wake in the midst of night

So, tell me, now who made this mouth of clay? What mighty being formed you from the dust? The One who watches you by night and day, And hears you every thought in open trust; The Man who takes upon your heavy load,
It's simply done. This movement through the dos and do nots have restrained an otherwise free spirit. I breathe through this pencil. I'm nourished through the words I read.
Choosing misperceptions, Misconstruing and impeding my attempts At intellectual self-betterment. Creating notions for myself, falsely, Of the worlds fabricated and lives changed By my brush.
Twenty six letters composing a phrase, Letters that have the power to break chains, Whether they exist in books or essays, Penetrate my heart, running through my veins.
God with us God with us, I’ve heard it said before But what does it really mean to be with the Lord?
You don't poison me with lies; You intoxicate me with truth. There's beauty in your mind That captivates me like a piece of art. Your words are a masterpiece, An orchestrated symphony
Keep the beats going through these halls. Or watch the silence take the last bit of thrill. An art form no less than the pictures on these walls. So it’s the dreams of artists you want to kill?
A woman's bare white legs, Cut off just above the knee, The shine of her patent heels, the allure Of the unseen. A telephone-- The old-fashioned kind-- Dropped in from the top edge of the frame.
(poems go here) Let me ask you a question When you look at your life what do you see? Is it a story, is it a song? Filled with the music of your dreams?
(poems go here) This is a song of my heart, a letter of my soul
To Hold. To Feel. To Write. To Draw. To Move. To Clench. Mine to Own, Yours to Hold. God’s best tool He’s given me. Hands.
I see something different. Instead of filthy streets and broken down cities, I see art. The world is a sculpture. Every single piece carefully, and articulately placed. Every piece of trash
I read about these people These wonderful, beautiful souls I wonder how I'm supposed to muster Up the courage to make my own.
Beware of Artists for they mix with all classes of society and are therefore the most dangerous. They study and socialize with any and all people. They are unafraid of what is different, strange, or new.
Coping mechanisms have increased Until loads of weight are placed onto my shoulder Relapses from what I once was From what I once did
They never stop Tears stream down my face I long for them to stop But they never stop
I sing my pages to sleep ruffle their hair with my breath Shh I will never wash their blood clean They bruise into my veins I will water them down and leave them on my skin oh, the joy
Pick a color of string Sure, violet works Now another Green sounds nice And another Pink Measure the string by using your arm span Why? It works every time Now fold the stings in half

The brush of life paints a beautiful peice of work depending on how the artist reacts to the changes of the canvis.Using paints better known as emotions the stroke of hands that have seen both death and life within the same year glide with grace.
Darkness cages, while canvas white is his only light as he avoids traces of human life. He ignores splattered paint, dripping brushes, and sickening scent of mildew and waste.
It's bursting out! This little beast Of joy and pain - My fingers crave To only carve And carve away, At the chips of reality Before my gazing eye.
True are the winds that speak through the pine, But humble is honesty too. Brave are the waves that crash to the bluff, But peaks are forever unmoved. What is sensation if only my sail?
Forever. Among the others . . . Crawling up my leg. A shark-bite? No. A deep slice Into the juicy insides Of a pale, goose-bump-covered watermelon. Sticky juices once oozing from its edges.
He looked at Me today.. He didn't speak but He peeped at Me today.. I caught that little smirk, I still consider him a jerk for the way he portrays himself around school, but its all cool.
There is something absolutely wonderful about a blank piece of paper Simple at the very least, it sits expectantly for touch Its every clean inch is a possibility for perfection
I have become new As the days burn out Cold comes out My eyes become new Along to the years ahead My breaths wait inside You'll come along in time Winter holds the stories I've said
Amazingly, pretentious artists actually exist Blissfully ignorant of the fact that Consciously barring any form of creativity Defies the very essence of art.
Oh when the base drops. Beads of sweat flying off of warm skin. Lights a flashing in synchronized motions. Teens giving off imperial notions.
Art is a dream that I cannot escape, It’s more than just colors and paper and shapes, Appearing in sights I see every day, I get lost in the beauty that’s on display, The gears in my mind spin with furious haste,
A streak of red, Anguish. A splash of blue, Tears. Yellows and oranges blossom, Bringing happiness. Swirls of green And black Lurk Eager to introduce
The art inside of me Pushes me, Hungry for creativity. It is me. It is who I will be and Who I have been. Let me express my Desires and dreams.
We already have a bad rep It's been going on since the beginning of time But I will not take this no longer Because now it's time to stop
The south wind blows and I will miss you Who will you miss, though? Have you anybody to know, grow, set seeds and sow? We fall, fall, fall to the blue, into the blue And then...
