Dreams

PROMPT: Pocket Poem

Who says dreams cannot be true?
I've seen flowers blooming at night,
I've seen moon at daylight....
from deep oceans i've seen the sunrise.
I've heard many gorgeous lies!
I've seen roses without thorns,
from the grey I've seen a rainbow borns.
I've seen a night...full of light,
Still who says dreams cannot be true?

Journey's End

PROMPT: Pocket Poem

"In western lands beneath the Sun
The flowers may rise in Spring,
The trees may bud, the waters run,
The merry finches sing.
Or there maybe 'tis cloudless night,
And swaying branches bear
The Elven-stars as jewels white
Amid their branching hair.
Though here at journey's end I lie
In darkness buried deep,
Beyond all towers strong and high,
Beyond all mountains steep,
Above all shadows rides the Sun
And Stars for ever dwell:
I will not say the Day...

They Say I say

PROMPT: Pocket Poem

They say 
go to social media to rant about all of your problems get them off your chest. 
I say
Write in a diary all of your feelings 
They want
me to just like them keep your emotions inside do not show any feelings be a robot 
I want
to be myself 
They need
to be more considerate of me and what I want 
I need
time for myself
They have
social media and so many likes and lots...

Love and Hate

PROMPT: Pocket Poem

Some say love and hate are separate 
But this I don't believe
There are no stone-hard concepts 
That from files we retrieve 
Love and hate are something else 
An abstract concept I think
Love and hate are so entwined 
That there is no brink
You can't be on the brink of love
it just doesn't follow
There is no true and even
Between love and hate
Most love to hate
Some hate to love
The are not set in stone ...

FIRE AND ICE

PROMPT: Pocket Poem

Robert Frost's poems are my favorite. But FIRE AND ICE one is somewhat different.
When I first read this poem I was deeply shaken by the theme.

Some say the world will end in fire
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favour fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.


The poem...

RAINBOW

PROMPT: Pocket Poem

Black 
     are the dark clouds overhead.
Gray
     is the pavement she walks on.                                     
Blue
      are the drops that fall down.                                      
Yellow
      is the hue of her umbrella.
Red
     are the roses...

A scrap, a peice, a thread, im still searching for the strand of love
A thicket of dark wood that crosses thru pink and red flashes
Its is full and plump and ripe for the picking

The realist of the realist

PROMPT: Pocket Poem

They love you when you not being real. 
But, they hate you when you speak your truth.

Instead of following a set trend.

If they stray then they become of the world.  ...

I Got This

PROMPT: Pocket Poem



When I'm scared, 
Or unprepared, 
I remind myself
To breathe.
Inhale, exhale. 
I calm and I relax. 

I straighten my back. 
Posture, tall. 
I got this. 
Whether I'm calm or ready to brawl, 
I got this. 

And that's all that matters.

I found a poem in my pocket

PROMPT: Pocket Poem

A poem is a few lines
with words that rhyme 
It will take some time
but you don't have to spend a dime
all you need is some word of poetry
make it up
say it lightly
sometimes you may get stuck
put all you have to do
is find the poem in your ocket

Restless

PROMPT: Pocket Poem

As I lay here restlessly dreaming, I hope.
I hope that maybe you dream of me too.
Not as I was but what I could be with you. What my heart would look like if it could soar in and out of what I wish are your dreams. That in a false reality we could look at each other know, this is mine. That we are lost lovers whom one day maybe, just maybe be restless no more.
Or that...

Photograph

PROMPT: Pocket Poem

She captures sunlight
A female silhouette
A window
A pot

Before the glaze and kiln fire
The haunt of the dark room
Clarifying acids and shutters thrown open 
To the grating turn of centuries,
The breathless touch of a hand.

FAKE LOVE

PROMPT: Pocket Poem

You did wrong this time,
by giving me up this time,

But every time you showed up at doorstep soaked
I always faked my love for you,
because you broke me more than twice, putting me on the spot

And now I good at showing you fake love
I want to stop, but I can't
So I'll keep on saying I love you like I mean it but it is my secret to show you fake lovebecause you started...

A poem by Hannah Flores

My mother taught me 
Fruits of labour are so sweet
My hands bled to pick the fruit

I have never tasted them.

Horse riding

PROMPT: Pocket Poem

No one said
It was easy
Yet we plunged
Too deep Too far

Like a rider on horseback
I was held
Free to love
But trapped to feel

It was dangerous
It was thrilling
It was scary
It was all I wanted

In the fear
I found refuge

The horse 
Now could lead itself
With its rider 
On its back
No longer steering
But only looking

In my fear
I found love
and love found me

Hello, Hi, Greetings!

PROMPT: Pocket Poem

Hello, hi, greetings
So many ways to get by
It can be a sincere hello, or a friendly bellow
It can be a strained hi, or an insincere tide
Same with the farewell 
It can spurt a joybell bell out of your mouth
Or make you grope and mope, like a trout
La, La, La, La, La
So many ways to get by

Outcasts don't have to mourn

PROMPT: Pocket Poem

The piece of poetry that i choose as my pocket poem, is the ballad of reading gaol by Oscar wilde. The poem is six stanzas long,it perfectly describes how people who don't fit in, feel. Whether they are considered totally outcast or they just feel different. This poem suites all the people who feel this way. Oscar wilde wrote this poem while in exile in Reading gaol for being homosexual. He perfectly described the injustice done to the so-called outcasts...

Shining Star

PROMPT: Pocket Poem

Sometimes I look above me,
I see nothing to love.
But when I tend to wander,
I see you, my sweet dove.

Just like a light,
Shining so bright.
Like the moon and the stars,
In the night.

Out of all the stars in the sky,
I would choose you.
And after all the time in the world,
I would choose your cue.

Choose me,
Sweet dove.
Choose me,
To love.

Cold

PROMPT: Pocket Poem

Cold, everything gets colder by the day, by every wind change.
Pain, breathing hurts like knives desperately trying to escape their own damage.
Trapped, every day in every way behind an invisible barrier waiting to strike. 
Jealous, no one fails as I fail and even my biggest triumphs are the easiest actions to others.
Tired, the hours I get each night never make up for the hours I cry.
Hungry, the fridge is an enemy, a comfort, a dangerous thought,...

My Favorite Untitled Poem by Erin Hanson

PROMPT: Pocket Poem

''How can you say you know me 
When you've only seen my skin
And not the untamed world i hide
Thats growing deep within
You haven't heard my ribs all creak
Beneath each plaited vine
Or swum beneath the waterfall
That cascades down my spine
You've not been here long enough 
To watch a new life start
Or find the run down castle 
That lies just inside my heart
You haven't climbed the branches 
That are wrapped around each lung ...

Flower

Flowers spring up from the ground
Not a single weed to be found
Growing tall and strong
Hopefully they last long
Blooming so bright

To Helen, Edgar Allen Poe

PROMPT: Pocket Poem

I absolutely love To Helen by Edgar Allen Poe.
I love To Helen because it is chock-full of Greek mythology references. We were reading it in my class and I was the only one who got all of the references. I especially love the last stanza, because it ties two myths together, the Battle of Troy and Eros and Psyche.
