    Unrequited It's not his fault. She was too quick to trust The beautiful boy With sparkling eyes And messy hair.

    Unrequited It's not his fault. She was too quick to trust The beautiful boy With sparkling eyes And messy hair. Too willing to give him everything She ever had And everything She couldn't afford to give up But he never owed her anything. Even after she gave him Her entire world. He never promised her a single thing. She sits in the dark, night after night, Sifting through the pile of All the shooting stars, Fluffy white dandelions And birthday wishes She ever wasted on him. She still loves him Because she doesn't blame him. When she fell He never said he would be there To catch her. She can feel herself Slowly fading from his mind And soon She knows he'll forget about her. And it hurts So, so bad. Still, she tries, every day, To patch the holes in his happiness With pieces of her own. She knows He never meant To hurt her. Delusion is dangerous, And sometimes The hardest thing is to let go Of something you never had. She's trying To forget But how can she? He is her world, Her sky, her everything. For now, She takes refuge in the memories That they made together. Someday, she'll be okay again.

  • Have you ever lost someone to suicide?

    A crowd of people gathered closely in the park, Wearing colored beads to name the ones they'd lost. All had come from places where the land was sere and stark, Or sailed upon the waters where hopes and dreams were tossed. Orange and green and purple strands, one for each that died, Sharing hope from deepest... show more
    A crowd of people gathered closely in the park, Wearing colored beads to name the ones they'd lost. All had come from places where the land was sere and stark, Or sailed upon the waters where hopes and dreams were tossed. Orange and green and purple strands, one for each that died, Sharing hope from deepest sorrow, beacons in the night. Yet my heart was stricken with sensed grief each time I spied Someone bearing the mighty burden of a strand that was pure white. These brave souls releasing doves in their loved ones' names Made me feel connected to something beyond this; I grew more wise, and calmer- I will never be the same, Watching the flocks soar away, happy just to exist. After being a part of the Walk in Remembrance with Hope for Survivors of Suicide Loss.

  • What happened to Jimmy Stainthorpe in Wilfred Gibson's poem 'breakfast'?

    Best answer: Jimmy Stainthorpe is just a football player who played full-back instead of Billy Bradford, which a soldier in the trenches is recollecting from a football game between Hull United and Halifax, so Stainthorpe wasn't in the trenches.

    Holding arms, fighting lately, Nothing in you when you hate me, Aiming low, bullets grazing, ripping skin already fading.

    While my wife was changing channels All nice and warm and in her flannels She wonders what they all are doing With all those dogs that they are chewing I told her that the sport is new But it does draw quite a few It seems it is the newest craze I think they starve themselves for days She says she thinks she wants to try it But after that, she'll have to diet I think for all the things she's done Watching this, should sure be fun She's warming up, she's up to twenty If it was me that would be plenty I think she is a great dog eater I start to think that none will beat her Then she got tied at sixty-eight But she had one more in her plate And when she swallowed sixty-nine Behind me sprung a scary line But with that she nearly fainted Maybe one was kinda tainted But when they told her she had won She barfed them up, till there was none

    Been searching all along Came facing twilight on and on Without a clue Without a sign Without grasping yet The real question to be asked Where have I been? I'm a shape shifter At Poe's masquerade Hiding both face and mind All free for you to draw I'm a shape shifter What else should I be? Please don't take off my mask Revealing dark Moments of calm Nothing left to be found A mirror right in front of me That's where I find An empty glass Reflecting the sad truth It's telling words not to be told I need the mask I'm a shape shifter At Poe's masquerade Hiding both face and mind All free for you to draw I'm a shape shifter Chained down to my core Please don't take off my mask My place to hide I can't tell you How to see me Just a cage of bones There's nothing inside Will it unleash me? Burning down the walls Is there a way For me to break? I'm a shape shifter At Poe's masquerade Hiding both face and mind All free for you to draw I'm a shape shifter Have no face to show Please don't take off my mask My disguise

    I am in a philosophy class and am writing a poem about a “perfect world.” My main focus is compassion. My poem I have started has an unusual flow, but I think I can make it work. I’m not good with poetry or creative writing, so suggestions are much appreciated. I will provide what I have so far. Some lines I am planning on editing and others I may not use, but it helps to brainstorm, so that is what I have done. I am looking for help with adding lines. Please, give any personal lines you would write about compassion, a perfect world, or problems in this world. It needs to fit the flow I have already created. Please provide your name as well, so I can cite you if I use any of your suggestions. “Compassion The concern for suffering of others Imagine A world where people cared for each other A nation Of jealousy, anger, and lust Creation Of a government we can’t trust Our people Lay dying in the streets Drugs An epidemic we cannot defeat The churches Condemn us for our sins From a book By which they create their own interpretations War Freedom in return for violence Refugees We could help, but we choose silence Poverty Struggling to afford to live Selfish Not even a dollar we will give” That’s all I have written so far. Please help! I’m at a holt and don’t feel like I’ve captured the meaning I am wanting
