My Favorite Year

You...reappearing in my mind;
You were right and I was blind-
But that was long ago.

Now...do I ever cross your mind?
Are your memories like mine?
Or have they let you go?

After all the loves I've been through,
All these years-
I had to go so far without you,
Now it's clear:

You were my favorite love,
That was my favorite year.
When we...we were young forever yesterday;
Fools and little children run away,
If we could go back there, would we stay?

Time

Time has always been unkind,
Leaving childhood behind,
Racing through those few short years
Of carefree hearts and happy tears.
Then time gives way to hopes and dreams,
And all of life's ambitious schemes;
The future holds such fruitful plans,
For brilliant minds and busy hands.
The child who goes to bed at night
Becomes a man at morning light;
Then time slows down to help him learn
That childhood days will not return.

Inhumanity

I cringe at insensitivity,
Which bares its' face of stone
In this inhumane world around me,
Where I often feel alone.
No one cries out for the dying,
Or reaches to the heart
Of the child who's cold and lying
In a world so far apart.
All these feelings deep within me,
The compassion and the need,
Seem so foreign in a raging sea
Of hatred, fear and greed.
My humanity is spurned
By the wall of steel they've built;
Where concern has long-since turned
Into a conscience without guilt.

Power Crap: One Man's Toilet Struggle

I was on the throne
for over an hour;
grunting and moaning-
I had no shit power.

My ass was wet
from flushing so much
I sure as hell didn't have
the Midas power crap touch.

Then it came
in a great brown rush;
it hit the bowl
and the water it did crush.

The toilet overflowed
with lumps of brown;
What could I do?
Except wipe myself and frown?

I wiped and wiped
and wiped some more;
trying to avoid
the mess on the floor.

I got the vacuum
and sucked the shit up;
Then Dad walked in
caught the hum and threw up.

Roots

We scratch at endless fields of frozen earth,
And claw our way through beds of solid rock;
With bleeding hands we search for roots of worth,
And try to turn the hands back on the clock.
Obsessed with fading memories of the past,
We attempt to find the reason for our being;
And although the possibilities are vast,
It's the terrifying future we are fleeing.

Are You Really My Friend?

You say, 'Call any time!'
I've left messages,
You don't call back for days.
Are you really my friend?
You say you'll do things that never get done.
You set your guidelines,
And you stifle mine.
Are you really my friend?
We do nothing together outside these four walls.
Is this a problem of yours?
Or is it all mine?
Are you really my friend?
If I'm feeling sad or lonely,
Because you aren't there,
If I go to bed wondering whether you care,
Are you really my friend?
Are you anyone's friend?

The Tourist

Cities with their tourist prisons
Offer hypnotizing visions,
As art and history hide behind
A coin-slot with a master mind.
Quaint and pleasant country places
Wonder at the vacant faces
That never really seem to see
The awesome beauty of a tree.
They pack the prejudice of home
And take a trip to ancient Rome;
Its' majesty they cannot see,
But how impressed their friends will be!

No, they really are... really good. I love the rhyming in the Tourist. I personally can't rhyme... at all. I'm probably as bad at cooking as I am at rhyming. But yeah... Keep up the good work.

Same here. Most of my poems that DO rhyme just should be burned lol

Asiyah (vvanderess) | 327 comments Time and inhumanity are my favorites. The rhyming is really good, the meaning in it is really strong and relatable...Great Job! I love them :)
