Singing Nightingale

Failing to plan is planning to fail. A single gran of rice can tip the scale. Thin an pail. The world under vail. Oh holy grail sings the nightingale. Till midnights light,firm under delight. For a last night come to sight. (more »)

One, Two, Three in the Flame

One: The smartest action was to flee, But, she was a knowledge addict. He saw the chance to manipulate, And tricked the fear to dissipate. Why, why did this man have power? To inflict her with inner chaos? She gave him the deed her her... (more »)

Disoriented
Within myself I have no sense of direction  I constantly look around and strive for attention  Without you in my life I do not know who I am  I know I will get better, I know that I can  I know you are in a better place  Yet I... (more »)
Dear Grandma:
By , sumas, WA
You flow through us like a babbling stream. Summer winds can't blow as sweet as you breathe. Nothing is sweeter than the way you beam. You shone so bright, sometimes we forget these Your love showered us through our childhood Like a... (more »)
O that this too, too besmirched spaghetti
Custom User Avatar
O, that this too, too besmirched spaghetti would simmer, Drain, and resolve itself into my dinner, Or that my mother had not fixed Her mind ‘gainst cooking for me. O God, God, How arid, insipid, frangible, and scorched Seem to me all the... (more »)

Someone Come Help Me
Custom User Avatar
Someone come help me 'Cause I'm so damn confused; I'm fed up of hurting And my heart being used. Someone come find me 'Cause I'm always so lost; Being a loner Has a sadly high cost. Someone come love me 'Cause no one else will;... (more »)

Tell Me What To Do
Custom User Avatar
You tell me to try harder, But you don't tell me how; If you tell me to do something, I must do it right now. It's not as simple as it sounds, It's not as easy as it might seem, I just need some help here, But you're on a different team.... (more »)
Questions In My Life
Custom User Avatar
Why is no one listening? Can't you hear my cries? You say you're understanding, But you're just consumed by lies. What have a done to wrong you? Why do you treat me this way? I've almost given up trying; I'm dying every day. Why are... (more »)
The Blackboard
Custom User Avatar
I look before you, dark and bare, I fix you with a daring stare. Your hands, they shake, while reaching for chalk, And all around is silence; no talk. Your hand reaches up so painfully slow, And the chalk screeches with dread and woe. The... (more »)
Nightly Lullaby

Lullaby and good night; Go to sleep, but please don't cry, And in your dreams I hope you find A world of a better kind. Close your eyes and float away And leave behind the hurt of day. Sleep deeply and don't awake Nor troubled scream or... (more »)
Present Day Tragedies
Custom User Avatar
I love summer, but I write more about winter; I love laughing, yet I spend more time crying; I love sunshine, but it's always raining; I love living, yet I seem to be dying. Where has the hope and happiness gone? There's life, but it's all... (more »)
Call Me Ugly
Custom User Avatar
Call me ugly, And I'll flip my hair; Say I'm stupid, But I won't care. Call me creepy, And I'll say I know; Say I suck, And I'll say you blow. But call me beautiful, And I'd probably cry; Say you love me, And I might possibly fly. (more »)
The Sun Has Set
The sun had risen and you were here, Next to me walking and laughing, with no fear. How beautiful life was, was it not my dear? The weather sometimes was hard, But there was nothing that had left us too scarred. The rain had... (more »)

Impasse

Equal, but different, the dove said they would be Thus, they knew not why He was of the sky And she of the soil and the sea   They held the future’s key Enkindling the world with new light She longed for embrace in the night And he... (more »)
