“The Truth” – A Poem of Realizing Love Lost and Denial by Susan Dahr

It’s time to tell the truth, time to own up to what’s real, this man left me for another, no longer cares about how I feel. Remained in denial for months, still believing the shallow lies he told, locked in the same old pattern, thought he’d love me until I grew old. Made promises that...

“Fear” – A Poem of Romance and Lost Love by Susan Dahr

Fear deters me from contacting him; afraid of the pain that comes from within. Fear of the words that may stab my heart, not knowing what to expect or even where to start. Missing the person I had grown to love, we used to be connected; we used to be one, blessed from above. Time...

“Stranger Danger” – A Poem of Despair, Lonliness and Running Scared by Jessica Baatz

The noises and sounds I hear at night,the wind rustling through the leaves.Flowing past the tallest trees.The night owl hooting as I catch its sight.It stares at me then takes its flight.Some noises I hear grip me in uneasestrikes fear in me to a certain degree.As I walk home, I see a flashing lightheld by...

“Indefinite Beauty” – A Poem of Dreams, Beauty and Nature by Jessica Baatz

As I walk through the meadow, I immerse in the beauty of the open field.

As I try to find my way toward the...

“Breaking Point” – A Poem of Despair, Lonliness and Internalizing by Jessica Baatz

Your life is a fallacy,Deceiving everyone around you.You wear your mask skin tight,Inducing suffocationWhile you hide your staggering despair,Disguising every emotionSo no one can see the pain and the suffering.Feelings of anger, sadness, and confusionBegin to take its toll.Breaking the silenceAs you reach your breaking point.They tell you that things will only get better,But this...

“Social Life” – A Poem of Passion and Sex by Emilio Ortiz

Screen on wood, not square. Slide right open, oh dare.Type all day and all night.Wish I could take flight.Keys hit so small.Thumb will soon fall.So accurate won’t look. I am not some rooke. Britnee woke me, shook.Her clothes, soon took.Kiss me not just once. Over and over again passionately you caress. Thick lips not to big, wet...

“Love at First Site” – A Shakespearean Sonnet of Devotion and Friendship by Jessica Baatz

Blue is the fascinating waves that flow.The reflection of the radiant sky,beautifying the waters vibrant glow.Looking out yonder with a watchful eye.My feet deeply buried under warm sand.While I sit in the beaming suns view,A man approaches me and grabs my handand pulls me to my feet, his eyes blue too.Together we walked near the...

“Fell Short” A Poem of Loss by Jevonte Lockhart

The feeling of love is a something that can’t be compared.But it’s not fun when you’re scared and your vision is impaired.Just because you’re seeing this world through a tear.The one thing that’s scarier than love is fear.The things that were close is no longer near.Fear makes your vision unclear, the pain is a spear.I...

“A Cold World” – A Poem of Life and Loneliness by Jevonte Lockhart

If I had the choice, I’d pause the moment, rewind the good times, fast forward the bad times, record the times I was at my prime, delete the moments where the spotlight wasn’t mine, then get a stopwatch to freeze time, then set a reminder to not lose her, get the timer and set it...

“Return is Possible” – A Poem of Death by Jevonte Lockhart

I wish R.I.P meant Return Is Possible. I think an angel came inside of me, just so I can tell you this first. Life takes it seriously when you say “Can this day get any worse?” Well I think I’m going in deep. It’s hard seeing the strongest people weep. I’ve been up here way...

“Going Through Changes” – A Poem of Life by Jevonte Lockhart

Going through the same stuff, different day, oh well, what can I say?I guess it’s supposed to be this way, telling myself everything will be OK.It’s like I’m on instant replay, the world in my eyes seem black and gray.Just because I’m tough, doesn’t mean I can’t be broken, but life has spoken.In my mind...

“An Ex Lover” – A Poem of Love, Life and Loss by Jevonte Lockhart

An ex is sometimes an example of what could have been wrong, what could have been right. An ex could be what caused the constant fight. At first you felt in flight, both people look into the same star at night. Who knew that love is a silent killer with a knife, but love can also...
