absence, death, emo, emotions, sorrow,
I sit alone in the dark
In the dark I sit alone
Nobody sees me
I see nobody
My eyes have darkened to a color never seen before
In this room, I've drowned too many times
I remember cascades of water under my eyes
My satin sheets wrinkle and cold
I die and die every night
No one sees the pain that kills me every day
Wounds that reach 6 feet deep
My mind is screaming
Is how I live
No one's around.
My body's like a coffin
Stiff in my own home.
~A Poet Destroyer Collaboration~
absence, death, devotion, grave, loss, miss you, spiritual,
I think about you, every single day,
Since from me, you were taken away,
Your absence has left my world cold,
Now I am alone, with no hand to hold.
I wish that I could bring you home,
So that your soul, shall need not roam,
I hope that you were given white wings,
To fly amongst, where the angel sings.
Within my heart, your eternal breath,
Shall now linger on, even after death,
My love for you shall never cease,
So, may you always rest in peace.

absence, animal, christian, death, encouraging, sympathy, uplifting,
Though my stall here is empty now
If you listen close...
You can hear me running through a greener pasture
Your sorrow opens the gate and releases me free
Thank you for rescuing me from worldly darkness
And giving me love unsurpassed
So that I may now run with others so loved...
But never forgotten
I am a child again young and lean my spirit afire
And oh how our spirits thrive here
Never again to feel the pain of the earth
Hear me running!
For your tears have watered the grasses for me
In God's Greener Pasture
-originally written for Kae Surrah
an Arab rescue mare
Your hat hangs limp and still with your loss
faded and stained, every thread, precious
my tears blur with silhouettes of you, dad
your distinctive scent, I touch your well worn brim
the hallway darkens with an approaching storm
pounding raindrops pummel my grieving heart.

absence, abuse, childhood, grief, growing up, solitude,
That childhood faith, vehemently spirited,
Difficult to bend, impossible to tame.
That still-cradled heart, curiously open,
Eschewing fear, shunning struggle,
Accepting of each coming day.
The journey so hazardous.
Now a cold-forged and unyielding heart
Beats out each agonizing minute.
Jared by indolence and disappointment,
Vision unrecognizably scarred.
The journey so quickly done.
Needing to chance upon that child again
To lightly touch the angel's brow.
absence, addiction, allusion, angst, beauty, grief,
Shadows dance behind her silver eyes
The ghost of her beauty struggling to show
A crimson rose amid the rage of thorns
Seemingly pure like the white of snow
Such a stupor of silence hangs above her
But it loses the battle in her mind
The silver key trembling in her ghostly finger
Attempting to lock up the heart inside
Never meant to be open, delicately curled
Her petals shouldn't seem foreign anymore
So she dances, silencing the screaming thorns
Leaving the key, now crimson, on the floor
absence, farewell, grandfather, grief, memory, thank you,
The leaves have turned brown and crisp
And I've remembered
How much you've been missed
On a day like today
It's the days when I feel down
And I'm sad
That you're not around
Desperately in need of a grandpa's embrace
You were like my best friend
And I'm yearning
For the hours we'd laugh on end.
Now I'm doing quite the opposite
The memories harvest in my mind
As I bow to your grave
With flowers of all kinds
Commemorating the part you played
In shaping the person I am today.
A granddaughter that misses you dearly.
absence, abuse, death, mother, sad,
Eyes flared in agitation
Damasked in utmost lament
The tyrants laughed in vanity
Remains of his mother lie still
As if the winds were holding their breath
The urn cracked and cold as night
Alone, the eyes softened
His heart a hermit of radiance
Temples tingled as silence stayed
The unprofaned laughter now ash-shamed
Hot tears of fervor reduced their pig-headed ways
He kneeled to his mother as they gazed
In the urn she no longer cried
Even in the urn did she not abide

Do not cry, for I am with you still,
in everything you see and do,
in every gentle whisper of name.
The breeze upon the windowpane,
a sigh, in the darkest of time,
it’s not yours, but mine.
I hear you weep, please no more,
for I am just beyond the door.
Just call my name and have no fear,
Each word you say. I can hear.
absence, beauty, death of a friend, emotions, grief, i miss you, sorry,
Glowing Cloud On Mountain Top
I met you there, so very full of grace
single rose in your shining raven hair
Radiance beaming from your sweet face
couldn't stop myself, I had to stare!
Every moment since, forever treasured
nights glowed on, your smile a star
Everything since that night measured,
love raced in deep, like a speeding car!
Now time has given me such great sorrow
Heaven welcomed your spirit on in
Misery my food, heartache my tomorrow
forever gone my lover, my great friend!
Glowing cloud on mountain top now dances
I gamble that climb and took my chances!

absence, change, death, death of a friend, first love, goodbye, grief, loneliness, lonely, loss, lost, lost love, sad love,
In the breaking light of dawn,
in a photograph - we kiss.
It's to your inner light I'm drawn,
while cursing fate, and chances missed...
Wrapped in thought, and solitude,
sweet lies trumped by bitter truth.
The road it forks,and one way taken,
now questions over dreams foresaken...
A puzzling gauntlet of how, when and why?
You were my favorite hello,
and my hardest goodbye...

absence, death, forgiveness,
My darling forgive me
I was not by your side
Was to blind to see
the emotions that you hide
Sorry for all the times I hurt you bad
All the times I was never near
I never wanted you to be sad
Did not want to cause any fear
Will you forgive me for not understanding
For not wiping away your tearful cries
For not knowing what was happening
It was too late when you said goodbye
You left and I cry alone
my heart has become a stone
6 October 2015
absence, death, memory, rain,
A curtain of rain obscures my view,
as I gaze out my window and think of you.
You've been gone for many a year,
leaving only memories for me to hold dear.
And hold them dear, I do indeed,
embracing them when I'm in need.
You see, the rain poured down on that day too,
as I gazed out the window, thinking of you.
A knock on the door and two uniformed men,
regretfully informed me of your life's end.
For Broken Wings Five rhyming stanzas - 5 only contest
( This is fictional)
absence, abuse, betrayal, death, depression, fear, feelings,
I feel loved at points in my life
Sometimes I don't at all
I can be pushed around and yelled at daily
In the end, I always fall
I have never understood love
Or what it really meant
All I know is that love hurts
And that, I can't repent
I listen to my orders
I stand up straight and tall
Wishing someone would hear me
Knowing that I'm crying in the hall
Some days I just brush it off
Letting it all go
Being who I would like to be
But hiding in it all
I'm alone in my mind
But I know inside
I'm dying before your eyes
absence, bereavement, life, love,
Your eyes spoke a million words without speaking,
Your heart stretched into my soul as easy as breathing,
Understanding and love needed no explanation,
The silence was enough with each compassionate expression,
My heart yearns for the peace I saw in your eyes,
The love you gave me to help me survive,
Each day that passes by without you here,
The memories I have of you bring me to tears,
Your sight gave me hope, your love was secure,
A simple life of love you lived, the small things mattered more,
Now you are my angel, living in the sky,
The gift you left me on this earth was the beauty of your sight,
absence, grief, loss,
You were once here, or so it would seem.
Gone now forever, like a half woken dream.
Flown beyond the farthest star.
Yet eternal within my memories you are.
Your echo of love will forever remain,
Guiding me through the sorrow & pain,
To the day my heart begins to heal.
Though not quite whole will it ever feel.
For pieces are missing, now shaded gray,
Given with love to love passed away.
absence, abuse, addiction, analogy, angst, bereavement, fear,
It wasn't hard to turn it off.
I felt like I was free.
Until I started missing life
The world was now inside of me
and I was now it's slave.
Where fear of stepping out to be
was more than I could brave.
OP Threat aka God
absence, angel, confusion, dark, destiny, dream,
Are we born to live,
Or are we born to die?
So what's more to life
You can be rich as ever
Yet still afford to die
By every breath I feel approaching mine
What is the purpose, or the goal of this?
Is one judged by their holiness
But how to live a holy life?
When every night brings blackened skies
And even during'st the brightest day
When the sun is smiling away
There will still be a dark cloud, vision
Eventually approaching in the distance
absence, death, lost, memory, seasons,
climbing stairways within my mind
I sit alone this silent night
and play a song upon the keys
in quiet melody to find relief
for many days have come and gone
and no ones here to share my song
for you have passed like seasons change
from sunlit beauty to wind and rain
where flowers no longer sway in tune
to weep in misery of bitter truth
absence, angel, appreciation, bereavement, bird, paradise, tribute,
to my son, Tito
A handful of sand in the angel's palm,
how often you strummed and sifted the metaphor
of Long Beach (since you were four and rolled
and unrolled and jotted down the specks of time
as if you knew what was behind the flimsy skies
that threw your quantum song asunder).
absence, addiction, bereavement, betrayal, death, education, loss,
Are in disguise
Working on our children's demise.
In our houses and on our streets
They give our children horrible treats.
The wolves lie of course
We're only parents what do we know? We talk until
Don't listen, look, or even try
Or you could be the next one to die.
The wolves are smart they know what to chit chat
And to tat
Webs that are children are walking in to at a fast pace.
My tears I can't erase
I will never see your face
Or feel your embrace
The only thing I could do was give you a resting place.
absence, blue, death, emotions, nostalgia, sad,
For Jay Dee, or Teheine.
I remember the first time I saw you:
Dressed all in brown,
Your hair hanging down,
With a bright splatter of blue.
Suffice to say that my days are all grey.
Without you, it seems,
I’ve lost all my dreams
Here at the end of the day.
My angel, my sweet,
You’ve stolen my heart complete:
Taken it with you to Neverland
Away you did go,
To a place I cannot follow,
To frolic in Neverland
I am happy for you,
My darling in blue
And wish you peace in Neverland.
But know that inside,
Where my heart did reside,
There now hangs a picture of you.

My knees were the things that
kept me up and my skin is my
cutting board my eyes are the
rain clouds to the fire running
down my arms and my heart is
the fire place that keeps me
burning so calm
absence, assonance, bereavement, christmas, kiss,
Little did I know
Our mistletoe kiss that night
By the Christmas tree
Would be the last kiss we shared
And then you left forever
*My first attempt at an assonant poem.
Those familiar with assonance please comment and let me know how I did.*
Leo Larry Amadore
angst, depression, devotion, introspection, life, loss, lost love, sad, sympathy,
Your absence hurts me,
Like a persistent toothache
Or a pair of too-tight shoes.....
But, worse, your hard face,
When finally we meet,
Leaves me panicked, gasping --
A doomed and thrashing swimmer
Drowning in your indifference.
