message 6: by Alaina 8 hours, 52 min ago

Under this smile that is no sunshine
Just rain and storms
The happiness is gone
There’s a tear mark on my cheek
From when I cried over you

Thinking about the happy days makes me sad
Thinking about all the thing that went away
Know that I’ll never forget you
Even through you broke my heart
Just because I’m not with you
I still think about you

There was both good and bad
Even when I want to forget
I will miss all of the thing we had
But you will always have a place in my heart

~Alaina M.

Rain

The sky has a hole in it
Cause this is not sweat indeed
Its raining, its great
Its covering my tears,
because all of the nasty words I hate

I twirl and twirl and hear a crack
Its lightning, not one, but a whole pack
I sing a tune under my breath
Of the days we have just met
We were foolish and young

My heart often rains
Its wet and foggy most of the days
Black clouds always remain
Cause you I have them
Cause you I rain

-SG

Who are you?

Who are you?
I used to know
Before I saw
Your side I never knew...
What a big showoff you are
No compliments you deserve
Oh Can, who are you?
I no longer know...

Do you deserve my admiriation
I give in pain
Or is your place
In hell, all in vein
Oh, who are you?
I ought to know
Cause you are my love
That, I know

Will you hide me
Under your shadow?
Or will you notice me
Till the end of this world
A year or two I know you
But now I wonder again
Oh Can, is it you I really know...?

-SG

Kate Duerksen Ooooo I once had this really good poem about a Jewish girl in the time of the Nazi. I'll have to look for it.

Love

I sailed off to the sea
And asked it, oh what love could be?
Is it a kiss or a goodbye?
I stayed and waited it to reply

A month passed by
when finally the sea roared
'Its salt and storms for me girl,
but for a madame like you, it should be a pearl...'

I went off to the woods
And asked it, oh what love could be?
Is it my love not loving me back
Is it in my heart a lack?

A year passed by
When finally the woods soared
'Its darkness and birds mocking by,
but if you ask me, its the will to live or die...'

I went to him, yes my love
And I asked him, oh what love can be
I added if he'll love me back
Or if I was not even worth a sack?

Not even seconds had gone
when he replied
Not with words,a magic it had done
His lips were on mine

-SG aka the girl who has never tasted love

these are some poems i made for class


I’m From…

I am from everywhere
But nowhere special
I’ve lived in places on the other side of the world
But never crossed seas
I’m from scripts and “break a leg”
From homemade peanut pizza and “recipes are just helpful suggestions”
I’m from my mother’s spirit and my father’s logic
From “you look just like Sam,” and “Ben’s your brother?”
I’m from the church
From waking up at 8 o’clock every Sunday
I’m from taking all year to come up with a Halloween costume then changing it last minute
I’m from Canada, Florida
From Ireland, Poland, and Scotland
I’m from the boxed up photos in my mom’s room
From her and her best friend in Germany
From my dad in Italy
I’m from art and nature
From swimming in creeks and getting my hands dirty
I’m from everywhere
But nowhere special
I am from my world

-- Elisabeth M. Sadai



Me

They think they know me,
But how could they when I barely know myself?
They see so little of the real me,
I wonder what my image looks like in their eyes.
Who do they think I am?
I’m judged on what they think they know,
But it doesn’t matter.
No one sees all of me,
Not friends, nor family.
I keep the real me hidden,
Only showing bits and pieces.
No one knows the real me,
Not even myself.


Gloria

Disciplining, belittling and monopolizing, everything has to be her way.
My grandfather has a new “friend”.
Interrupting, demanding and witching, nothing I say is good enough.
No “yeses”—it has to be “yes, sir!”
Shocking, sinning and horrifying, she can’t believe what I wear to church.
Bare shoulders are “too much skin”.
Questioning, wrestling and praying, my grandfather has finely broken free.
He has left her behind and made a different choice.
Disbelieving, confusing and astonishing, not even a new wife will stop her.
Apparently “friendship” has no boundaries.



Who I Am

I speak my mind, but I hold things back.
I stand up for my friends; that doesn’t mean I like you talking about me.
I have morals, but I’ll do anything to help someone.
I have feelings, sometimes I can’t keep them all in.
I’m smart, I know it.
I may act crazy, but that doesn’t mean I am.
I know the power that words hold, and I know how to use it.
I take the time to know people, how they work, and what keeps them going.
I get mad quick, but I think that’s better that holding it in.
I’d like to think I’m always right, but then that would show how wrong I really am.

Ashok Satpathy (Asubakachan) | 7 comments A Sea-side Farewell
Today I found her, sleepy in the heat
Lying in the sand almost forgotten, like
A grainy wedding picture stuffed
Between Shakespeare’s Hamlet
And Juliet
Her lips were like Dune-grass
Humming quietly, in time with waves
Striking a piano of oysters
On and off and on again.

Her velvety voice floated
Over the heads of lazy seagulls
Past the empty lifeguard’s stand
Into the depths of an abandoned lunch pail
Where the sound resonates as a moan, Oh!
For she is all man could want for a night.

I walked past her four times. Twice going there
And twice coming back.
On my last return she turned
Over, showing the backs of her legs
Oh, to the whip of the sun.
Doing so tilting her song
Sideways across the rugged dunes.

I’ve tried to drown
My ears of her sound
Taking long strokes to the diving platform
Holding my head underwater and deep,
Until my ears pop. There still hearing it while
The diving platform swings over me.

That song jars me together with
The shards in my skin, shattered picture frames
And dead oysters.
We married two years later
And she left me last spring.
Oh!
-Ashok

Selin | 296 comments Mod
hah!

Shouts and lies
Comes always before and after cries
Life doesnt accept whys
Because this is the way, this is it

Today I asked
Would you have done the same
One question; paralel answers
I think I'm going insane

It was all a volcano
In me that gathered
And at the last drop
It all splattered

-SG


message 18: by Alaina (new)

Alaina  (PeaceLoveWriting) | 171 comments I can’t wait to you come
Down to see me
For me to look
In your beautiful eyes

I can’t wait
Till I see you again
For those eyes to see right through me
To see through all of the sadness and make every thing right

Till I see you again
I will have to think about that smile
The smile that makes the world go round
And makes my heart skip a beat

The smile that makes everything alright
It warms my heart to think
That im with you
That I get to see that smile

And those lips
Sweet like sugar
Right on mine
That makes me melt to pieces

It makes me feel so good to think of
Those beautiful eyes that see right through me
That smile that makes my heart skip a beat
Those lips that make me fall to pieces

But that is just you
The one that makes me happy when im sad
Till I see you again
I will just have to wait.

-Alaina M.

Once it is wilting
