Soulmate
Written by ChanelleJoy in portal Philosophy

I LOVE YOU

I love you in

The morning light

I love you when

The moon shines bright

I love you with

My entire heart

Not just a piece

Or one small part

I love you in

The summer time

Watching waves

That sing in rhyme

I love you in

The coldest winter

When ice splits skin

Like a splinter

I love you when

We fight & glare

When neither of us

Can come up for air

I love you when

We joke & play

Those days we'd never

Wish away

I love you when

You laugh & smile

& even when

You're sad awhile

I love you when

You're such a dummy

Even more when

You're being funny

I love you more

Each new day

I love you more

Than words can say

I'll love you always

Until the end

I'll love you always

My lover, my friend

CHOOSE LOVE

Suicide should never be an option.

No one should ever be left feeling like suicide is the only way out.

Where has human decency gone?

Where has that thing called kindness gone? Where has love gone?

Seriously.

Get a grip!

Stop hating!

Stop judging!

Stop wanting everything & everyone to fit into your perfect little square!

We're all fucking in this shit together so let's start acting like it!

Fuck!

We all gotta survive & we all gotta strive!

We all gotta work & make a living!

Nothing comes easy or free.

But we don't have to step on those we don't agree with.

We don't have to tear others down just because they do things a little differently.

Everyone's gotta do their own thing, make their own way.

Who are you to judge?

Back the fuck off!

You do your thing & let others do theirs.

& just love them.

Love them for being them.

Love them for being brave enough to not listen to society, to the critics or the naysayers & for just doing what they want.

Because these are the people that will change the world.

& we're killing them.

These are the people who greet the day with their middle finger & scream, "fuck you" to the demons & the devils, crying, "you don't own me & I won't let you win!"

These are the people who give the world their all, who bleed their hearts dry to show people they aren't alone.

These are the people who will care about you, who will be there when you have no one else.

& we're killing them.

We're killing them under influence of ignorance.

We're killing them under influence of selfishness.

We're killing them because no one is there for them when they need help.

When they need to speak, no one will listen.

When they try to speak, they're judged & criticised & they're the ones who get called selfish!

All that they give, everything they do to create a better world & yet, when they need someone, they're ignored.

& all their hard work, all their labours of love are wasted.

Fallen on deaf ears as people turn a blind eye to their pain.

It's sick.

It's downright fucking wrong & something has to change!

So I challenge you today.

Today, I want you to reach out.

Stop being ignorant.

Step outside of yourself, out of your perfect little square where everything is pretty & reach out to someone who needs a helping hand.

Reach into the hurt, the pain, the scars.

Yeh it's ugly!

Of course it's fucking ugly!

It's messy, confronting, upsetting & disturbing.

But you can change that.

With one simple gesture, you can change that.

Yes.

You have that power.

In you is the power to make or break someone.

So how are you going to use it?

I say use it for love.

Use it to be kind.

& if you can't think of what to say, a hug can speak a thousand words.

Buy them a coffee, take them to the park, watch a movie or TV with them.

Just be there.

Don't hide in your square, letting anger & hate seep through the cracks in your walls.

Get out!

Smell the fresh air!

See the beauty in your surroundings.

Take things as they are & leave your judgement behind.

We are not here to judge.

We are here to love & if you start looking at things through eyes of love instead of judgement & hate...

We can make the world beautiful once more.

Are you with me?

The last time you saw her...
Written by EyesofArt in portal Poetry & Free Verse

The last time I saw her

The last time I saw her, she grabbed me into a hug after she told me she was leaving to go to a new school. She was the new beautiful, intelligent girl transferred to my school of horrors. Her cousin, Rosemary introduced us and we were like magnets since. I admired her because she wasn’t vacuous like most “pretty” middle school, popular girls. I was a unique cookie, and yet she took a keen interest, and I believe nothing would ever rip us apart until the last time I saw her.

“Miesha, I am moving away. My parents are forcing me.”

I sat on the bleachers staring past her into…nothing. I didn’t register until she pulled me into a hug and said, “I will never forget you.”

She let go…

And walked away… 

I just sat there as a single tear dropped down my puffy cheek.

That was the last time I saw her…

A Magical Night

Moonlight soaks in the

Wispy clouds

Carries glittering rays

Down moonbeams headed to

My heart

You are a

Silhouette of

Reflected love

Come, angel

Will you dance with

The faeries

And me

And bathe us all

In the substance of

This glorious night

A LOVER'S SONG

I saw a song betwixt the rose petals

Blooming there in fragrant red

I smelled the musky scent of lust

Betwixt the sheets of our lover's bed

I felt the storm within my bosom

The rising pleasure didst steal my senses

As lightening struck me down below

& shattered all my inner defences

I'm lying open, vulnerable, exposed

Desire burns in your sun-kissed eyes

& in your touch, I hear a devilish sigh

As your hands trace lines upon my thighs

You took me higher than the bluest sky

& I lost my head among the stars

We wrote the song of passion & pleasure

The beginning of our luscious memoirs

So I see a song betwixt the rose petals

Still blooming there in fragrant red

I can smell the musky scent of lust

Betwixt the sheets of our lover's bed

Cliff Diving

I'm experimenting with formatting today, and would appreciate feedback as to which of the two versions below you think reads better. Also comments on the poem itself are welcome.

Cliff Diving - I

Meet me there, on

precipice where

full moon bathes our

bodies bare. We’ll

dare our longest leap,

side by shivered

side, into still

waters deep; off

new shores, beyond

bind of shadows’ keep.

Fueled by beam of

satin song-shine

stitched through breaths, to

hold for ages

shards of broken hearts.

Cliff Diving - II

Meet me there, on precipice

where full moon bathes our bodies,

bare.

We’ll dare our longest leap,

side by shivered side into still waters deep;

off new shores, beyond bind

of shadows’ keep.

Fueled by beam of

satin song-shine stitched through breaths,

to hold for ages

shards of broken hearts.

Written by jmasalgado in portal Poetry & Free Verse

My skin caught on fire at the sound of his voice as he whispered my name. It was the last promise he had to break to finally set myself free. 

We waited 40 days to heal as we break and build each other's dreams. As he cruised with the cold breath of the night time under his feet, I found roads yet explored. My eyes sought comfort with the warm tears swelling at the edge of each one. They blurred my sight for a while, but they served as the lens for a clearer view of him watching from afar. 

Every beat of my heart reminded me of the wishes we shared, of the goals we made, and even of the struggles we faced. In those 40 days before the end, saying my name, one last time was the deal.

He complied. I am now free. I hope he is as well.

~reconciliation

 

 

 

 

 

 

imagine surrender

 

     as white as truce

     as white as truth

 

 

from the attic

I pull down the stars

for you

     like fireflies in a jar of night

 

 

darkness dissolves our scars

suffocates our segregation

 

manipulates the distance

between us

as it salts the sheets

of our waiting bed

 

 

& we become the unstill

 

 

a blue crush of shadows

in a half-naked room

bending, writhing

against the skin of a musky moon

 

 

     come into me

 

    

as if you were wind

     stealing my breath

STAY WITH ME

Come be with me, come dance with me

Underneath the starry sky

Come be with me, come dance with me

In a place where we never say goodbye

I feel you in every moment

With every beat of my lovestruck heart

& there's a part of me that dies

Whenever it's time for us to part

Without you, I'm incomplete

& so i close my eyes & sleep

To meet you here within dreams

Where safe, the memory of you I keep

Come find me where roses bloom

Here I'll wait for you

Come find me where the jasmine twines

In vines that bind our love so true

Then stay with me till the end of time

Stay with me in the lullaby

Stay with me until the day

That never again must we say goodbye
