Down

By AME

I wrote one poem but you dissolved it,
So I wrote a new one in the hopes to solve it,
Right now I’m angry and am in need of help – are you there?
I’m tired of being lied to – honestly do you really care?
I got my hopes up but now you just laugh – can you tell me why?
I hate to believe that you’re praying upon my downfall – is that why you cry?
All your tears I hate as well – when you look at me, honestly, can’t you tell?
Now it’s clear to see in my pain that you’re a hazard of – why I fail.
With that being expressed, I’ll close for now……
Just maybe – you will learn the meaning of truly – being DOWN!
Instead of living your life as a silly clown.
You always want to be seen – but I promise, “All is not what it seems.”
When you find yourself and become ready for a good man,
I vow to your will that I can – always be DOWN!

In Her Eyes

By JG

I see the potential for forever
Subtle glimpses of lifetimes spent together
I see the heart of a mother
Tempered with the mind of a queen
I see an intelligent, competent conscious woman
Made for nothing less than a king
Strength and vulnerability are also there
Along with passion and compassion
And if I happen to be the vaguest question
She’s the specified answer
I see a deep ocean full of love
That’s barely been touched
And I just want to go deep sea diving
Giving her all of me
In exchange for us
Her beauty goes without saying
My soul yearns for more
Her eyes tell me likewise
And my soul is assured
I see the potential of forever
But if we ever part ways
I’ll always remember the power and potential
That live in her gaze

Love Is Pain

By AG

They say when you love someone
you don’t treat them bad
and it’s sad because through the mud
her heart, I continuously dragged.
Love sometimes makes me blind
and I totally lose track of time
thinking she’s forever mines.
But I’m not understanding the signs:
the crying, quietness, watching TV,
rolling her eyes. She tired of my lies.
She knows I’m not faithful
She knows I cheat
so I confess my disloyalty ‘cause
accountability is the key.
She’s gone and I can’t sleep.
In all reality, she deserve someone
better than me.
Baby, I know every heart must break,
and every tear must fall
out of every love I ever had
you was the best of them ALL.
P.S. I miss you.

Loving with Free Minds

By CM

When I let my mind wander
There’s no telling where I will go
From loving you on the beaches
To loving you in the snow
But I‘m loving you all the time
It’s imperative that you know!

You’ve been loving me through this jail
In your letters your love shows
But our loving’s becoming stale
And I’m hoping that we can grow

So just let your mind wander
In remembrance of me
With thoughts of what we were
And what we still can be
I’m hoping that you remain
The same until I’m free
And able to turn all those aspirations
Into reality

Then we can look back on these days and wonder
How our life would be
If we didn’t let our minds wander

Trust

By JW

Trust is something that is given first time around
Break then it’s time to build up from the ground
Trust is two people standing back to back
Knowing that no matter what they’re protected
Trust is giving someone your heart on a plate
And believing they will not stab you with a knife
Trust is a treasure chest filled with diamonds
And you’re hoping that no one will take them

Trust is a relationship with another human
Believing that they won’t hurt you on purpose
Trust is a business owner and you have employees
That you’re believing won’t steal from you
Trust is believing that the government has your best interest at heart
Trust is believing that God will never leave or forsake you
Trust is believing that you will get treated with respect
And trust is believing that you can do what is right
In the sight of man and God
