Poetry Quotes





 He looked at me like he was about to devour me.
And just once I wish those eyes were filled with love and not lu$t.

Just once I want to feel like the things that I want are not a burden.
Just once, I would like to feel like I am not a burden.

My needs shouldn't be something I have to bury.

I just want love.
And yet the only time I feel loved.
And seen, is when I'm not myself.

Who am I anymore?
I've not been myself for most of my life.
For the sake of being loved.
Is it truly what I seek?

I do just want love.

I don't want to be a burden.
But it's too late now.

I am the thing that they take and take and take.
I am no longer me.

My needs are a burden, met with sadness and annoyance.

I am just figment of what I wish to be.
Just take me, everyone does.

It's the only time I'm seen.

I can't.
Make it stop.

This is all I'll ever be.

Hold me, oh god I just wish you'd hold me.

The only time I feel loved, is when I'm not myself.

Take me.

What's the point of fighting anymore.

Maybe you'll love me when I'm longer me.
And I will simply cease to exist.

For the desire to be seen and loved.

Goodbye.

 


Generation's To Come
By: Justice Elliott


Every generation goes through a new type of segregation. Different problems but the same level of responsibility never taken; At least not from the ones who should claim it. The ones in charge have the power to change things, they have it all but still take advantage of the people who work hard to get what they cannot keep. Our pockets are wiped clean, our purity turns to darkness and our hearts harden; its the only way to survive what we deal with in our streets. You may think you run your life, but in reality we're all puppets, controlled by someone from behind the scenes. Its the ugly truth so many rather be blind then see. But we're not blind, all we have to do is open our eyes. We're apart of the problem and its time we stop assisting in their mass genocide. Lets make a plan for all our sakes; we are the 99% which means the odds are in our favour. The 1% cannot take us, its times we show them the monsters they've created. The damage to us is already done, but we can pave a path much better for the generation's to come. Allow our children to be proud of the people they become, give to them what was not given to us. Many regrets but this will not be one.
You say 'blackout poetry'
Like there's some other kind

Een vreemd boeket staat in mijn leefkamer.

De donkerpaarse zwerm verwerkt niet.

Dus ik verwijder het niet



Al is de eetkamer gevuld met vliegen

Op zoek naar zoete vruchten

Die hier niet te vinden zijn



Al is de slaapkamer gevuld met scherven

Van kopjes die wij wanhopig

Niet proberen te breken



Maar we ruimen wel op

En de bloemen staan ze zo mooi

Ook al hebben ze geen geur.


hope is the thing with feathers 
that perches in the soul
and sings the tune without the words
and never stops at all



i have loved the stars too fondly 
to be fearful of the night
The fire that burns inside those eyes
Schorching my heart, engulfing what's inside
My heart turns to charcoal..
Along with my soul..
There isnt much left,
But it's all for you to own.
  


 

                                    Down where the mermaids
                                    Pluck and play
                                    On their twangling harps
                                    In a sea-green day...


'Twas Thomas Edison did declare
That waste is worse than loss
Yet never thought it fit to pare
His first name to Tomás
You Go Girl
 
You go girl
Expression of approval
You're doing well
Fellow possessor of ovaries
 
You go girl
Empirico-metaphysical observation
You and your nails keep on moving
Through space, time, and Goddess knows what
 
You go girl
Requested action
Please take that attitude
Somewhere else honey
 
You go girl
Poetic sentiment
You decide to walk with mouth open
Bright color on your lips
