This is a page for poems.
Poems that cause you to feel something,
to think something,
to do something,
to experience something.
Whether or not it's your own doesn't matter,
as long as it's something.

Feel free to add any poems that you enjoy (or does what I said above) to this forum.

Blackout Poetry

Devoid
Silence
Generally below the southwest
Through two signs of sight
Where a bridge looks like a gap

The Fury of Aerial Bombardment
BY RICHARD EBERHART
You would think the fury of aerial bombardment
Would rouse God to relent; the infinite spaces
Are still silent. He looks on shock-pried faces.
History, even, does not know what is meant.

You would feel that after so many centuries
God would give man to repent; yet he can kill
As Cain could, but with multitudinous will,
No farther advanced than in his ancient furies.

Was man made stupid to see his own stupidity?
Is God by definition indifferent, beyond us all?
Is the eternal truth man’s fighting soul
Wherein the Beast ravens in its own avidity?

Of Van Wettering I speak, and Averill,
Names on a list, whose faces I do not recall
But they are gone to early death, who late in school
Distinguished the belt feed lever from the belt holding pawl.

This is it
This is what we get
The end of us
Time to exit the bus
I got my story
I got my soul
I want to give you yours
But your heart is a hole
A hole nothing can fill
I shovel in feelings, creating a trill
Words of thanks, praise too
Nothing I do can make you revert from the blue
You’re stuck in sadness and so am I
This is it
The day you die

God is dead and so am I
God is dead, but is that why we cry?
We cry because of the things He left us
He left us dust
All that’s left is ash and bone
He left us to die all alone
I’m done with Him
So I swim
I swim through this trash
A world made of ash
A world that’s dead
Along with the man that made it

Before the tears there was something
Before the pain there was something
Before your fighting
Before your curses
Before you
Before you came around the world had light
Before you moved into my life things were finally going right
When you came I died inside
When you kneeled down in front of her I prayed it was a joke
But there you are, standing here
Years later

I wait for it to end
I wait for her to give you up
To finally say she’s had enough
I wait for you to get out of my life
But if I hate you, why am I feeling such strife?
I wait for you to say you’re proud
To say I’m finally good enough
I wait for you to smile at me
To be thankful I’m yours
But I’m scared that’ll never come
So I remember before and I wait for tomorrow.

I swallow what you give me
I eat up line after line
I pop your words like pills
Yet, what you say gives me zero thrills
I work so maybe I can leave this all behind
I work so that I can finally have some pride
But I swallow your medicine
I take your drugs
They make me numb
They make me dumb
Dumb enough to want to stay
Dumb enough to keep me here
To keep me from running away
I sit and think as I take the next drink

They always say don’t drink and die
But I’m done with this life
I just want to feel high
I just want to feel like I’ve got a place
I just want to feel like I can do something
But you keep telling me I can’t
So I swallow what you give me

Hoping I overdose

I’m racing at the speed of sound
Nothing is going to slow me down
I’m gone
Quiet as a whisper, quick as a flash
A flash of lightning
A wisp of light passes me by

No matter what I do someone is better
But I’m still flying
Still running as fast as I can
But it creeps into my mind
I have to go faster
Be the best
If I’m not the best than what am I?

I’m nothing

It used to be don’t be last
and feel bad for the guy that was
But now you have to be first
Be first and you’ll be happy
Be first and you’ll get the job
Get the girl
Get the life
But maybe I don’t want that
“Too bad,”
“It’s dog eat dog”
“If you’re not first, you’re last”

I race at the speed of sound, but somebody is going the speed of light.

I wait
I wait to die
I watch as days fly by
Life is rushing me
I never have enough time
Yet I have enough to wait
I mark off the days
They go past in a haze
I sit and stay
Waiting for the sun to rise
Waiting for my chance to die
But is that what I'm really waiting for?
I'm waiting for a reason
A reason to laugh
To smile
To live
Yet when I sit here
Waiting for the sun to rise
It feels like we're all waiting to die

Blood pools
Kids break rules
This is what life is
A series of sayings
A series of doings
Nouns, verbs, and adjectives
Yet nothing saying why we live
We're here
But why
People lie
Eventually we all die
Those are the rules
And a path to a broken heart
So what I get
Is from the start
Life is pain
I stand in the rain
Feeling it's chill
Thinking of ways to make this worth living
But then you walk up
A smile despite the shade
You open an umbrella
You clear my mind
And I realize
To live is to love
And to love is to die

Garbage, burden, mistake
I go by many names
Worthless, selfish, waste
I go by many phrases
Useless, stupid, freak
They all get to me

My mother doesn’t love me
My father doesn’t care
At least that’s what my brain is telling me
I live in a world of despair

“You’re a burden”
“Die already”
That's what the thoughts think
That’s what they tell me, day after day

Even when I think I’m fine
Even when I think I’m happy
Maybe this is a sign?
A sign I’ll never be free

Free from this curse
Free from this feeling
Free from my thoughts
Free from myself

At this rate, I’ll end my day in a hearse
One mistake waiting to be made
One made with little forethought
But is that what I really want?

I want to be happy
I already am
I don’t want to die
I’m not going to

But at this rate, what I’m going through
The words and phrases in my mind
I can’t help but cry
But I’m not going to

I’m not going to let these feelings win
I’m not going to let the words sting
I’m not going to let the phrases in
I’m not going to kill myself over talk

Useless, stupid, freak
They won’t get to me
Worthless, selfish, waste
I can change
Garbage, burden, mistake
I can leave

I’ll live a life
So pure, so fine
That even my brain
Will change its mind

Snow by Louis Macneice -

The room was suddenly rich and the great bay-window was
Spawning snow and pink roses against it
Soundlessly collateral and incompatible:
World is suddener than we fancy it.

World is crazier and more of it than we think,
Incorrigibly plural. I peel and portion
A tangerine and spit the pips and feel
The drunkenness of things being various.

And the fire flames with a bubbling sound for world
Is more spiteful and gay than one supposes—
On the tongue on the eyes on the ears in the palms of one's hands—
There is more than glass between the snow and the huge roses.

It's 3 in the morning
And I'm standing outside
I'm in a place
Where everything goes to hide

The cold bites into me
But I do not mind
I can feel the snow through my shoes
Maybe, this is what I should choose

I sit in the cold
And bask in the sun's nonexistent glow
There are no words to ruin this
No thoughts to ruin me

The cold, it alleviates my pain
Numbs the wound
It touches me
Through the layers

I feel content
A strange kind of boon
Is this the answer to my prayer?
Is God's gift the cool winter air?

Maybe this will fix my blues
Maybe this is what I choose
I should move to where there isn't sun
Instead of looking into the barrel of my own gun

I see the people
They sway around me
I think they're trash and scum

Then I think, don't be so harsh
They're people like you
They're human too

"What does it mean to be human?"
I cry
Now I'm under their scornful eye

They sit and state
And I feel strange and alien
They snicker and mock

And I think
What does it mean to be human
It isn't this

To be human is to care
And share
And give peace of mind

I think
This isn't human,
None of us are

Maybe the only ones that are human
Are the animals
Because it's certainly not the people

There's nothing more painful
Then losing a part of yourself

Losing a part of you
That you called a friend

There's nothing more painful
Then losing something you love

A feeling, an object
A person

There's nothing more painful
Then losing someone's trust

Get in place
Say your line
This is a play
Do your part

But this feeling
It isn't my heart
It's my mind
It's my sense

My heart says stay
My head says run
This isn't what you want
This isn't who you are

I break away
See them sing and sway
"Was that really me?"
I say to myself

I walk out
Into the sun
Only to find the barrel of a gun
And a man saying

"Go back. There's nothing out here."
But there is, I can see it
But I don't want to die
So I go back and hide

Their eyes judge me
As I sit underneath the stairs
Listening to the production
It's fake a flawed

There are corpses down here
Others that ran away
They tell me
I can't stay

I go out again
Instantly under attack
I run and run, feeling the wind on my back
For a moment, I'd say it was beautiful

Then I notice everything is black
The sky, the earth
The water is poison
The planet, trash

I realize the truth in the words
There's nothing out here
But there's nothing in there
I can't make up my mind

I can't stay
But I can't sing and sway
So I lay down and cry,
Waiting to die

I waited for all my problems to be solved
I waited for Solution
To be expected, I got Nothing

So I searched for Solution
I found half
Waiting in Office

Some Solution was given to me
It made me sane,
Fix my broken brain

But I wasn't happy
Half wasn't enough
I thought Solution was a bluff

I looked for something else
I searched for happiness
For Salvation

I searched for Feeling
But I only got Pain
So I went back

I went to work, unburying Salvation
Shovel in hand, book in the other
I read myself my final rights

I buried myself
Next to Salvation
But it was you, all along

You sat in my coffin
Waiting for me
Waiting to give in

You told me to get out
So I stood on the ground
Instead of in

You took my hand
and lead me away
My beautiful Salvation.

You lead me through Pain
Through Misery and Torment
I was scared of Salvation

But you took my hand and lead me through
Through all of the hate, anger, and sorrow
Through it all

I not only found you,
Salvation,
But I found happiness with you

You lead me through suffering
Only so I could understand
You gave me happiness

You gave me reason
You fed me strife
My sweet Salvation,

You gave me life.

What's keeping me here?
What's keeping me with him?

There's nothing keeping me here.
Nothing keeping me with him.

There's nothing

Nothing in my mind
My heart

I don't feel anything anymore
I don't care anymore

There's nothing keeping me here
So why do I stay?

I try to feel
I try to think
But there's nothing

There's nothing up there
There's nothing in my mind
My heart is empty

I feel like I'm happy
But I feel like I'm empty
There are no thoughts, no feelings

I try to care
But you make it difficult
You fight with me
You ask me why you matter
Why I love you
and, for the first time,
I don't know

I'm trying to hold on
Because that's what I've been told to do
I'm trying to understand
Why is it so difficult?
I've done this all before
I've cared so deeply
Loved so passionately
But now I don't care

I've asked what's wrong with me
But no one seems to know
I've looked inside myself
But there's nothing there

I don't know what to do
What to do about you
Or me
Or this

Maybe there's nothing to do
Maybe I just need to accept it
Maybe I just need to let you go
It's what I feel like I need to do

But you've been with me for so long
Five years
Why does it suddenly mean nothing to me?
Why do I suddenly want to leave you?
Why is guilt the only thing keeping me with you?

Why is guilt the only thing in my mind when I talk to you?
Why is guilt the only thing I feel?
Why do I not care
But I feel such strong guilt
Nothing is there any more
But this horrible guilt

You say you hate me
But for some reason, you respond
You say move on
To let you go
But why do you keep pulling me back?

Every word
Pulls me back
I feel nothing but guilt
And it keeps pulling me back

I thought I loved you
But I'm just guilty
I hurt you
and I'm sorry
But you won't accept it
So I just feel guilty

Not happiness,
Not emptiness
Not this nothingness,
I feel
Guilt.

I tell her to fuck off while I hold her tight
She's with me in every heartbroken word I write
She harrasses me as I sleep each and every night
When my suffering's about to end she waters me back to life
