Words that can't be expressed without flaw
pain thats hard to withdraw
life living in a adolescent stricken nightmare
writing your hand into intensive care
taking foes that are PG there
showing them ways of the mind that leads them with glare
a blank stare to the words that are sinking
the parents that are incompatible and fail to admit it
a step father scorn over jealousy from his step sons notes
a mother born with not a bit of spiritual quotes
suicidal notes all over the place
tears that acquire a delicious taste
the room moving at a slow like pace
your weight is going downward and your heart race
dianosed with a disease unheard of
missing the taste of food you grew proud of
can't afford to miss a dosage to cure the pain
lonely nights as tears become rain
leaving the one you love for the one you love more
finding out the one you love more is the one you love less
and the one you love is turns into a ghost haunting your mindset
writers block when things go good
there when your things become gray and you're misunderstood


keep it going

    leaving the one you love for the one you love more
    finding out the one you love more is the one you love less
    and the one you love is turns into a ghost haunting your mindset

    🤬 I love these lines!

    i got you

    POETRY IS....
    my addiction
    I'm sick with it
    sometimes I dont have it but I stick with it hoping to write myself miles away from this block
    POETRY IS
    hip hop
    POETRY IS
    my flip flops flappin in the wind as my earphones bump southernplaylistic
    or some Wu-Tang Clan
    rhymes sneak along with the whispers that whisk through the slits between my teeth
    POETRY IS
    my mindstate
    poetry may seem like suicidal notes in my computers top right hand drawer written down on post it notes
    like "I don't wanna live more, knockin on deaths door, but theres no answer"
    the angel of death is my private dancer
    but shes slippin me tips on how to 🤬 myself faster
    i listen
    ...cuz that 🤬 is THICK
    POETRY IS
    a 🤬 up day
    jotted down on a page with rage against the machine
    like your mad at the pen and you wanna see it bleed ink
    rippin the notebook apart like thats gonna change the way you think
    like the government is actually gonna read
    you writing a million lines of 🤬 BP like Bart Simpson's chalkboard
    POETRY IS
    my escape when I'm bored
    I'll write about anything , I'm aboard
    POETRY IS
    my imagination running wild like I carry a 44
    like Hacksaw and his mighty board
    POETRY has my mind sore
    my mind soars and rhymes explore the deep jungle of my mind
    my mind is forced to write and have every action followed by millions like its Tigers' course
    POETRY IS
    listening to Recovery and Bar Exam 3
    I was 🤬 up and failed the first 2 times
    no A's, B's, C's, D's,F's
    All I got was Z's
    I'm lying, I wasn't asleep, I was wide awake
    the Poetry on these tapes is amazing
    POETRY IS
    my explanation of my life
    my intervention of my life
    my education about my life
    my vacation from my life
    my temptations from my life
    my contemplations to end my life
    POETRY IS
    my outlet that I stuck my pencil in and crazy ass stories bled out my ears
    on to a page of "Dear John" letters that I'm writing myself
    because I'm alone
    and POETRY IS

    my only friend

    Poetry is
    An expression of self
    when only words can express how ya felt
    Its the morning and the night
    the dawn and the dusk
    Its for the ones that you love
    and the broads that you 🤬
    It brings calm to many
    brings the pleasure when the pain is too much
    Its my form of story tellin
    the tone I selected
    The right words to tell her the moment I exit
    Its the rain and the storm
    both a gift and a curse
    It brings out pain from before
    that tore through like wind liftin the earth
    Its my family, my love, my wisdom and knowledge
    Itll still be when my kids get in college
    forever, infinity, for always you know this
    It clears the path when hallways aint focused
    Repeats hopeless, happy, desperate times
    Excedes potions, clapping, necklace shines
    Far from materialistic but on some slickness
    Words flow smoothly like water under the bridges
    Now can I get a witness?
    Yes poetry is, my story, your life, our words
    It starts in the center then spreads outwards
    Meaning, it reach everyone wether they listen or not
    Cause I preach my gospel to the world not just a listenin block.

    Man ya'll is killing it! all of ya'll had some good stanzas.. props to that..


    So lemme dabble with this..

    Poetry is my everything
    like lilacs that bloom in spring,
    a husband but me with no ring.
    It's my quick fix for what i fiend
    like herion going in your vien,
    its here when I"m screaming in vain
    its there when nothing's contained
    and listens to all my blames,
    ressurecting my soul that once burned in flames
    expressing the things that once clinged
    im not talking of the bling
    im talking of the stuff i've seen,
    i've experinced, perhaps my concerns
    or the worlds discerns.
    Poetry is epic,
    verses of dialouge with intent
    words that can be conversed,
    rehearsed or dispersed
    in fact reversed.
    Poetry is my therapy
    letting my words flow like flowtry
    a life of my registry
    perhaps this is my ecstasy
    a pen and paper with some hennesey.
    Yea this me spittin solo
    busting hard like the riffle
    better go get your bible
    and recite the verses
    reading my words making you go loco
    braced for critiques like stucco
    shoulda known that name,
    instead of waiting for answers
    see im sick of this cancer
    making ya'll feel ill while tryna deal wit it
    now just be still with it, not stale with it
    im like uggh this is what's poetry
    drop a dolla bill
    and I tell a true story
    of the kills
    or tryna eat another meal
    can ya'll feel for real
    or ya'll lost your feel
    forget the industry deals
    i rather stay in these heels
    and keep writing an making ya'll feel
    cause Im in love with what poetry is..




    Yo, that 🤬 was off the top of my mind, i didn't get a chance to write it out, i typed as my thoughts was venting.

    Epic...epic stuff i'm seeing in this thread....keep it going yall



    poetry is...


    the fling i found at the mall the other day
    about to make whoopie and brag all day
    to my boys about how much this jawn is bad
    intellectual and has a old school persona
    new school if she wants to be
    maybe i'm falling but not just yet...maybe eventually
    to the crib we go and shes sitting legs crossed
    telling me its all on you on how you do me
    she started saying things that made my spirit roam smoothly
    "just vent and tell me your every moments"
    i don't know what to say towards her like 🤬 in the mist of flesh
    a hidden glow upon a gem she resembles
    my eyes grew watery and my heart open upon thee
    shes the epitome of what true love brings
    i think i wanna marry her but i'm afraid she don't see the same thing
    all i know is she reads me and proceeds to say yes
    only if you are real and not like the the rest
    launch your anger upon my thighs
    🤬 me with your love and never trick my mind
    give me words that could express your true honest feelings
    don't forsake me for its I that's your personal healing
    look at me as your get out of jail free card before a incident occurs
    the voice within the keys stopping you from losing it
    the kiss that settles your thoughts of self disapproval
    the motivation to spread knowledge to those that need it
    together we are one and you are the secret
    to keeping me fresh and pure for those to explore the remedy
    of what you brew with my help and pure beauty
    enough of the pillow talk baby just do me
    make love with your hands and 🤬 me with your mind
    so the 🤬 will have a perfect design

    poetry is yin and yang
    overrated and unappreciated
    one minute you write five lines
    the next you a poet
    its a shame and unappropriated
    unrelated to my eyes
    15 years of perfection to be defeated by disguise
    youngins typing, writing and inspired but why
    could it be self importance or trying to fit in
    break out or breaking your own persona
    to open doors towards something new
    only to see that poetry isn't you
    so end the writing and be true to you
    because poetry is the epitome of through and thru
    not defined for the espresso crowd of few

    Poetry is...

    Like the object of my affection
    striving for a simple perfection
    its brings up many attention
    did I forget to mention,
    i rocked poetry the other night
    it felt like i was on some plight
    see I'm just tryna see the light
    And let free like kites.
    Poetry is the essence of my presence
    An essential piece of my plesantries
    poetry is like the plumeria tree,
    that only grows on the islands of Hawaii
    Somewhere in Kauai or Maui
    Poetry is like the sound of ukelee
    Hyming the song "over the rainbow"
    Poetry is poetry and I'm in love with it...
