From news schemes to dank memes,
With Nothing less at my desk,
I avoid a snore, to never ignore,
a well written  poem.

It's open mic, without a fright,
not a dread in the poetry thread,

Post your best, with nothing less,

And thus I expect,
A well written poem.

Roses, like your lips, are red.

A question, begging to escape.

When I take you to bed,

will the curtains match the drapes?

 

 

Thank you, thank you. I'll be here all week.

 

 

 

jk no I won't because my life sucks right now and I work 24/7

I was expecting edgier from you guys, So to make up for the loss, here is a poem from my high school journal:

Here I lie in the wasteland of butterflies,
Imaginary, probably, my mind is one to run from reality,
Under apocalypse sun, my mind will run,
but my body will always lie in the wasteland of butterflies.

A gentle caress caries me to sleep

a world without sorrow

a place I don't weep

forever I wish I could stay in this place

frozen in bliss

the taste of your lips

until the time that I rise

despair in wake

wishing to sleep again

This hits really close to home. My mother passed away from opiate overdose after her long battle with a terminal illness when I was 15. I appreciate your contribution.

I'm so sorry, my deepest condolences.

So, recently my step dad had been hospitalized from a failing liver as he chose to revisit his addiction to alcohol. And for that purpose I wrote this poem. It came straight out of a rough draft I wrote.

 

Quote

 

Do you remember the day you took me fishing?
We casted a net to catch a fish but instead we reeled in crab.
That was the day that I've resented to say that I almost called you my dad,

But what held me back was a memory of when i was a child,
I remember watching your mild hit extreme,
like someone had turned the dial from zero to a hundred in means of self destruction.

So i filled a cup of water to splash you on your back in hopes to protect my mother from your fists as my brothers stared exposed to another violent sinking!
His anger, fueled by his addiction to drinking....


Oh god what was i thinking?
I constantly look back on that day you took me fishing,
And i remember the feeling i got when i wanted to call you dad....

And what makes me mad is that if i woke up tomorrow and you were gone,
I would consistently remind myself that i was wrong.
As you've already redeemed yourself as my parent when you taught me that people can change.
And because of you, I now know that I can change too,
For like you, I choose to learn from the pain,
And for each struggle I encounter I will grow,
In hopes that like you it too would show.
Because you grew from a man who inflicted pain into a man who took it away by supporting the people you loved by working hard everyday.

Now the mother of three could rest easily because out of the three she married,
you're the one who chose to stay to face your demons rather than running away.
For it was you who taught me how to be brave,

That my demons may only obey to me as I am the one in control!

And to this I say that as we stood in the rain,

You not only taught me how to fish,

You taught me how to change.

For I too have an addiction,
but at what point do our addictions become labelled as the obsession to hide from the pain that life let in?
For we both have chosen to ignore your lesson


So here I offer you some knowledge on obsession,
A lesson to bring to attention before it becomes aggression,

It's addicting,
Not drugs and drinking, but hurt and feeling,

Just as love, pain too takes healing.
So if we lead our hurt to oppression,

Old obsessions will turn it into regression,

and with that our regrets too become our obsession.

 

So let us cast another line in hopes to catch a fish,

And even if that fish is a crab,
At least this time I know I wouldn't hesitate to tell you that I love you dad.

A place so sweet, so dear to them,

friends and family alike among them,

to tell of tall tales between foes and friends. 

Here lies an ancient burial grounds. 

 

So March across, and March they did,

the children they ran, the woman they hid,

scared of what mankind was to bring.

Here lies an ancient burial grounds.

 

The face of man was dirty and worn,

a breed of evil awoke and was born,

the guns they shattered and torn,

everything they loved and adored.

Here lies an ancient burial site.
