Tired of these sleepless nights

Tired of these sleepless nights
While dealing with these drug-induced fights
Tired of the cravings on the daily
Shit’s been driving me crazy lately
Just want to go back to knowing me
With all the potential that will be
Put this work all

Shoes

Oh shoes oh shoes
How are you always untied?
With you I always lose
Security to my foot has been denied

You could come off at any time
I don’t know what to do
And you’re only just size 9
Every squeaky step is a crime
I’ll have to get a

THE HEART DESIRES

17th May, 22'
KUSHI ACHI

  THE HEART DESIRES
Here's a piece of my heart,
It bangs just at the sight of your call,
I could scribble how I feel but each time I try I get lost cause I'm head over hills.
In my mind,
I've written countless

Neighborhood

Kids playing outside
Trying to tag the other is what they want to get
No one wants to be inside

Outrunning others with pride
Being chased, but don’t fret
Kids playing outside

Escaping, running to hide
Shirt drenched with sweat
No one

THE WAY TO NEVER LAND

Feels like living amongst caricatures from that distant planet Plutocracy
Marionettes drawn by song and dance tuned in to waltz Disney's fantasy
Never a murmur made whilst scared making a splash in wavering
Wilfully allowing others

8th Grade ELA

8th grade ELA was tons of fun (hyperbole)
Mr Benders poems hit strong like a torpedo
His poems were all about something, but now it’s done
Every poem about his speedo

Every single day I learned ELA in 2nd period
(anaphora) Every single day

Poems

Poems, a form of art
All the words come from your heart
A clean style, a smooth rhyme
It makes me happy every time
All of the words so very pure
They make you happy, I’m sure
Writing a poem, it feels free
Only a limit of 12 lines and each

Ocean and river

My nouses are nonsensical to your silence and your wrath is comeuppance to my actions

Your cravings tells about your wants , you wanna be Pacific but you're not even an ocean till now

You are like rivers which sometimes stay calm , slow

Another

And yet another life well lived,
Another human being just trying to be good,
Going about their daily living aisle by aisle
Planning for the evening meal
Taken
Not by God or disease or accident or age
But by unnecessary hatred
Again
And

Sea Dream

Life is like water drops wobbling on a Lotus leaf,
Short lived & uncertain, like the dew on Fern tips
Every time I go to bed, an image of you flickers in my head.
Every time I fall asleep, an image of you flows in my dreams
And I can hope for

A YEAR CALLED"2020"

Stay

I love
like the beaten dog,
wounded and whimpering,
wide-eyed and wondering,
remembering what it felt like—
his kindness and warmth;
his sweet, eager greetings.
Then he strikes again
with words against my jowl or
buries his tongue-boot

    How can we "Subscribe" to an author, so that when they post a new poem we get a notice of it? That would be a really useful thing to do -

      HI Anisa, welcome to the site! If you scroll to the end of the poem you can read information including: date poem was written, date poem was submitted to the site, how long it takes to read the poem and also the number of views. It can take a while for your poems to get noticed - one way of getting out there is to promote your poem. It then gets featured on our homepage in the promoted poems section and you can enjoy your views rise there ;)
