I love to write...heres one i wrote yesterday. Its called Whats worse.

Be More afried of the living than the dead.
Death...thats peaceful...
and you seem to have no worries about the world.
Life...thats difficult....
You have to worrie about EVERYTHING....
Not only do you get hurt emtionaly and physicaly..
But the living can hurt you more than the dead.
Than that eats me alive inside.
People search their whole lives to find what suit them well...But most never find it.
We all live in fear of something and we have to live with it on this planet.
Death is a place were everything seems calm...
And nothing can ever hurt you again.
But yet your stuck on this earth poepl ecpect me to call "Home."
We have one purpose in life...well to me...
And that is...
We all live to die...And we all die...to live.

I wrote this yesterday when the worse thing possible happened to me....It had to do with my parents...I wanted to die...but i wrorte this and let my feelings out...dont think im emo...i kinda am but im not...no offence...but i just thought it was kind of deep and personal so yeah lol...tell me what you think.

I like it Julie! It is true the grave does seem to have a certain draw. life is very hard full of hurts. But what we have to remember are the good times and the love that we recieve from friends and family. But I completely understand how you felt. Poetry is a great way to unleash our emotions. That why this poem means so much, it's from the heart

Our Dreams are dead. What could have been said that would lead to such dread?

How then would you act
If your life and free will
Were taken away, set on a track
Where there is no turning back
And no way to fulfill, the purpose
Given to life to give meaning, in a world
Of meaningless things
Purpose that was yours
The purpose that all of man sings

Eyes watching, making sure death is complete
In your own eye, hope
Laying Unseen
Because death, like winter, is a temporary thing
The dream will come back
No matter how hard you try to kill it
Doesn’t matter who trys to steal it

The human spirit will fight on

This one is called Forget:

Sitting here waiting for your return.
Why am i still trying?
When All yOu did was teach me to cry.
You put me though pain and misery.
Your soul is constanity haunting and taunting my every move.
I was your mop...
Only there to clean your messes.
I was your Tissue...
Only to be used to get what you want out of it.
Im tired of being hurt.
So why do i keep going back.
Its like im trying to run away...
But im on a treadmil...only staying in one place no matter how fast i run.
I hate to leave likt this...
dorwning myself in my sorrws deep enough to make a lake.
Please help me forget about you..
Help me forget about what i once had with you.
You hurt me Physically and emotionaly.
And i was blinded by love that was never there.
I may be young..
But i have seen may thing....
Maybe to much for my age.
So please i i said before....
Please...please...help me...
FORGET

Maxine Dexter (maxinedexter) | 38 comments The Morning Tree

Tell me where the wind whispers words
Where the rain sparkles as it falls
As purple clouds slice through the air
A majestic fantasy
A possible illusion
Created by an elegant witch
Lead me there…
…to the morning tree

Take me far away from this place
Where I can lie in fields of blue-green grass
With glimmering stars flying above me
Plummeting to the ground in a blazing golden mess
An astronomer’s dream
A heavenly image
Created by an elegant witch
Lead me there…
…to the morning tree

Bring me to the magical place
Where the sun rises in the west
And sets in the east
Puzzling all who’ve never seen it before`
Defying the sciences
A text book nightmare
Created by an elegant witch
Lead me there…
…to the morning tree

Explain to me where you can see the vivid moon
where it is almost always never full
where it hangs in the sky
The demented smile of the Cheshire Cat
A haunting sight
Created by an elegant witch
Lead me there…
…to the morning tree

I want to go to the place that tells a story
Where all the lively flowers sing a story
Waiting to inspire all who pass by
A writer’s utopia
The everlasting muse
Created by an elegant witch
Lead me there…
…to the morning tree

Now here I am on my hands and knees
Begging for a change from the normal bleak world
Take me to the morning tree
Where the wind whispers words
Where the flowers sing
Where the raindrops sparkle as they fall
Where the moon is the demented smile of the Cheshire Cat
Where the galaxies grin, where the stars fall
Where the sun rises in the west and sets in the east
Lead me there to the morning tree
So I can lie there watching the miraculous wonders
In the moist blue-green grass
Lead me there…
…to the morning tree

This one is called Dont Let Go:

I seem to always have you on my mind.
As if not seeing you drives me insane enough.
But honestly I miss your
Warmth,
Touch,
Your lips pressing softly against my own.

I cant stand the thought of you leeting me go.
You promised we would be to gether till the end.
You have changed me so much inside and out.
You make me want to be a better persoon.
How you may ask?
I honestly have no idea.
But when i get an idea...i promise to let you know.

People think im unloyal when it comes to relationships.
I dont seem to know why people think of me that way.
But oh well....Heres the truth.
I may play, flirt, and talk to oather guys.
But i want you to remember some things.

Whos the one i fell in love with?
Whos the one i want to spend the rest of my life with?
Whos the one i promise to never let go?
Whos the one im constantly worring about because i can never get a hold of you?
Whos the one i cry for when i need someone to talk to?
And....
Most importantly.....
Whos the one who i tell the words, "I Love You Too." everynight before we say out goodbyes fro the night.
I tell you this becuase you should know by now that i care a lot for you as you say you do to me.

Think about this for a second....
Whos the one who gets to hold me close and who has me my their side at this exact moment.
I always play arounf and tell you...
"Tonight i will go into sorrow...Because I know I wont see you till morrow."

I never get to see you...
And when I do...Its never for to long.
So I just want you to tell me that you wont let me go.
Just promise me...
Dont Let Go

My longest poem ever!

The boy opened the door
His feet planted to the floor
Looking inside he saw nothing
But heard of someone singing
He hesitantly moved on through
From the door a breeze softly blew
The door shut with a slam
He softly uttered, "Damn"
The boy was in the darkness alone
Sitting on what felt like stone
A booming voice came across the land
"H'llo, welcome stand if you can"
The boy swiftly stood to his feet
The voice he was eager to meet
The voice spoke again, softer this time
"What is your business? Your rhyme?"
The boy replied very timidly
"I don't know, I'm confused you see"
The voice then asked rather fast
"From where were you cast?"
The boy thought a moment, then said
"I was asleep in my bed,
When I saw a door
I had never seen before.
This is where it led"
"Well then you must be in a dream,
No matter how impossible it may seem"
The boy was confused almost pessimistic
"But how did I enter a dream so realistic?"
"Do not focus on the how,
Focus on what you will do now"
A gleam appeared into his eye
He moved to where his door would lie
He stepped into a dream of a memory
His home was decorative and Christmassy
He laughed the laugh of a six year old
There stood his dad, kind and bold
He ran to his dad, hugging him
Dad smiling said,” Merry Christmas Tim"
Tim the six year old was brightly smiling
But Tim of twelve was silently crying
Tim remembered his father's funeral
The feelings and sights so surreal
The dream then went terribly wrong
The scene then changed to further along
Ten year old Tim crying with mom
A letter clutched in her hand
The signia of the army on it's band
Father lying dead on a beach of sand
Affecting Tim horribly to say the least
His social life all but ceased
He thought of the days at school
The days when kids are so very cruel
Kids teasing him for crying to much
To wimpy to be one of the bunch
Tim yelled and he screamed
To be let out of these things he dreamed
Dreams that became nightmares it seemed
He stood alone now, crying for his dad
Yelling at the voice, sounding half mad
He then was silent gazing into his hell
Because then softly out of the darkness fell
A comforting voice that was a surprise
"Tim, Tim open your eyes.
Look at the blue sun swept skies.
Look at the dawn so beautifully painted,
Each color perfect, it's beauty weighted"
Tim opened his eyes and saw where he stood
He smiled now because he simply could
The beach where he stood made him realize
The darkness that had plagued was gone from his eyes
His father stood a few feet away
Watching him in that wonderful fatherly way
Tim let out a whoop as he saw his dad
No trace of him ever being sad
He hugged his father as hard as he could
His father hugged back as all fathers would
They talked for hours with no end in sight
For the first time in years Tim was alright
He said that he loved Tim but he couldn't stay
That he would join him on another day
The father put a shell in Tim's hand
"Go and tell people all that you can"
With a blink Tim awoke clutching sand
And a brilliant sea shell in the other hand

message 50: by [deleted user] (new)

i just got an idea for a poem! it's called "Widowed. Left With Only Loneliness and Sorrow."

She wanders her house all alone,
feeling lonely and depressed,
and sorrow.

She looked,
for love, care,
to be...not alone.

Widowed and left with pain,
no children of any.
No company, no nothing.

She had only her past,
her past of love and care.
Filled with friends and family.

Everything has gone,
everything has faded.
Nothing to be left but loneliness.

She looks out her window one day,
dreaming of her great times.
Happiness, love, care...

A little girl with long hair,
many family and friends to play.
Laughter and chatter filled the air.

A teenager with many experiences.
Love at first sight,
Cared for, never left alone

A young woman loving with passion,
walking the aisle with her caring father,
to the man of her dreams.

Whom she was to be with,
for better or for worse,
for richer or for poor.

a middle age woman,
listening to her husbands very last words.
Now widowed and left alone.

Now her parents have left her,
now her spouse.
Left with only sorrow and loneliness.


Walking to her bed, coughing and wheezing.
Lying down, on the bed which she had first kissed as a married woman.

Now she has no one.
She is alone.
She is lonely.

She has no love or care.
She is full of sorrow.
She is widowed.

She knows no meaning of happiness,
love, or passion any more.
It's all gone...and for good.

As the clock strokes nine a.m.,
the woman is ready,
ready to be with the parents and spouse who had left her.

With only the words of her mother to live by.
"Whenever in tough times,
Laugh it off."

The woman took her husbands gun to her head,
she laughed, then was silent.
The large home that had once been occupied...now silent.

Left alone, uncared for, full of sorrow...
