I dream poetry There is nothing that excites me more More than transcribing thoughts I may never share More than reading out loud to find what sounds best
Poetry, is anything the truth? A lie isn't a lie and to die isn't to die. A thing is another. If someone stands for someone else does the second someone sit?  
Your smile radiates  Like the morning sun.  Your eyes sparkle  Like tinker bells pixie dust,  Bringing hope of true beauty to the world  The way your hair flows 
Purgatory.   The endless wait, the infinite tide of fear and anxiety washes over again. I wait to see you come in, your angelic face shining like a beacon in an ocean of despair,
The depressing anxiety was peculiar as it crept over me. A thought of another generation came to mind. Will it come with a mental period of time?
I spend my time biding by, tie my shoes, adjust my tie, i walk this square, all life seems fair a vision did i see, a vision of what I used to be how will i know i chose right?
Poetry is not the written word Or ink gracefully and artistically drawn on paper Poetry is a fond memory that comes to us  unexpectedly -  In the most sporatic times And brings a smile to our face
This job will not only change my life. It will change the world. Words can stab like a knife But without them would anything change? In a world so corupt  With problems that can widely range
You're that gleam I see in the dark,  You stand in the corner And shine in my eyes,  There's no better light To a better path... You're the answer, And you're the want Everything I desire 
The traffic sounded like the sea, always moving,                                                                                  never changing. The sun's rays grew intense, burning the skin,
No contest! No seriously, this is not a contest.  I am entering a random drawing  by adding my thoughts and words in exchange for money.
As she walks through the halls the whispers get louder she's listening her tear drops glistening your telling her she's not good enough some say she's not hood enough she's debating
Drifting, drifting, drifting In a boat on the cool, blue sea
In the shadows I sit Away from the crowd, A class full of voices My own starts to drown.   From class to class I rush and hide From room to room I stumble and cry,
Love is passion. Love is attraction. Love is devotion. Love is a notion that people care for people other than themselves. Love is small. Love is big. Love is humble.
land of the free,home of the brave laws force us to behave, the government puts us in a cage prospectives in projects makes the world hard to digest. Even when I try my best, you cannot let my flaws lay to rest
He once was a man just like you and I He had a family and a job to get him by. But then the war came and it all transformed He went out and fought through the storm. Everyday he put his life on the line.
Sitting on the floor, thinking of it all. Watching the clock move slow on the wall. You say you love me..but where are you now? All it took was a phone call for you to say chow.
You are curious You are just a child
My brother was forced from home I tried to ask, "why?" The seeds of our love were sown I received no reply
How long will you mourn me, Not at all, it's not your concern For if you were to mourn me It would make my heart burn Feel the cold wind surround you Enjoy the embraces of new lovers
I don't know how to say this, but the picture, I will try to capture But what I want cahnged is schools pressure. The pressure to get honors, and at the end of the day try to sleep
Let's go home and spill some drinks And then see what the good Lord thiinks This is a poem about a man in my head He put up a fight but now he's dead 
The words surface in my mind; streaming, roaring, Clicking together like pieces of a puzzle, From word to poem.
  The scratches on the papers are nonsensical to me. If there's only one set answer, you see, With that, you could fail indefinitely. Math..numbers, they never cease to inspire me.
Nowadays, poetry can be seen as this A sweet song, a love note about roses A rap about getting the desires of the world
I don't like to be ignored. Actually I HATE to be ignored. And fuck those of you who immediately think that I am an attention whore. I'm not, I just don't like to be ignored.
I have to write a poem Not too long or short. No required rhyme, No required sense. Just a gripping, passionate subject with flow. So here goes.   There are poems that teach lessons
I find feelings scary. They tend to make people Do uncontrollable things.   I find logic powerful For logic comes From the defeat of the monster That is feeling.  
You drive me to the edge again and again  But I hang on to the ledge With my pen The rocks at the bottom are razors I'm slipping Words are my savior   Feelings and memories triggered
Pen to paper, ink to letter, Word to phrase, line after line, Rhythm and rhyme, beating in time, Meaning so fine, inspiriation mine, Never will quit, the heart of the poet, Starts when he knows it,
The sea shimmers like sunlight on chrome Loud crashing waves and soft silky sand are my living room The beach is the place I call home   My home is unlike the old empire of Rome
Every poets’ voice is distinct. an indicative drawl or rasp, a characteristic blend of dialect, a certain brand of sarcastic humour;
I'm a visioner I see great things happening- Poetic Buildings  
Sometimes I dream That I will see them again My momma My poppa But when I wake All I can see is darkness I do not breathe in air This is pure musk that fills my lungs
A what a strange world we live in. How one joke is a muse, but flipped is abuse. How the light at the end is glory from war, but is also the big gold gates to The Lord.
One step forward The soft sand cushions my foot with its tenderness and warmth Seeping between the secret crevices of my toes The sun drenched grains heat my feet Almost burning But not enough to hurt
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
Endless Words Which lock your eyesPlentyPlenty of puns and idiomsI'm on another planetSeems to be from a different worldHiddenFoggy and somewhat unclearMeaning
There will always be painThere will always be sorrowWe will always burn bridgesBut when can we be free?  
Poems:  Expression and Lyrical.  Beautifully Hopeful.  Honesty and New.  A way to be true.  Writing is my way to vent.  In my own little tent.  My way to be real. 
When lust is greater than love When hurt is too much to heal It’s hard to stay in love, When there’s nothing left to feel.   When the pain of holding on Defeats the fear of letting go
I think metaphors and analogies are overused Like, here we all go again trying to sound all deep Trying to make some profound point out of some thought that we imagined was original
We will never again label people like animals they said We will never again let a government kill millions they said But what about the immigrants I say
Getting good marks in exams makes one happy Eating ice creams makes some happy Splurging money on shopping makes others happy Our parents become happy to see their children happy
Nobody in this world can live without music I feel And music transcends all boundaries But still some people seem to have no ear for music But even these people enjoy some kind of music or song for
Some have an ambition to be a doctor Some have an ambition to be a pilot Some scuba divers, some athletes There is a broad range of different ambitions With people preaparing for ambitions from a young age
Hero is dashing Goons he is smashing The heroine is so happy For the herohas come to her rescue, Many portions of the script are unrealistic, There are twists and turns in the story,
Why in the world do poems need to rhyme? You would think with everything else in the world People would be more willing to less rhymes slide. With depression and poverty Why is it so important that cat goes with hat
Sometimes certain situations are just so hard to deal with, other situations are easy, but the hard ones teach you a lesson in life, weather its for the worst or the better.
I often look to the yellow lillies in the garden on campus Friends pass me and time shifts Is it not the success that people want? Or perhaps it's the driven motive in which we attempt to strive Unjust it truly is,

As long as its in the future time will move me toward it,so im going to keep on fighting, while im struggling but its worth it., tired of all the hatred,im tired of all the fighting, so tired of my own lies,sick of my self portrait, disliking who
How to write a poem How should I start? This is my voice I can write from my heart Poems don't have to rhyme Poems dont have to make sense Poems start with you and your one line
I touch my pen to the paper and take in a deep breath. I feel like I'm about to create something breath-taking. Now to others who put their eyes on it might feel differently.
I am the quad core intel i7 chip in the beautiful aluminum unibody MacBook Pro. I am the retina display in the iPhone 5. I am the 4g LTE in the all new iPad. I am the 32 gb of storage in an iPod touch.
So many days in that black swivel chair Clicking on clues, who needs fresh air? Staring at the screen with its curve like the earth You’d think I’d been doing this from at least birth
