• The trees extended their branches
    floral and green
    I let them embrace me
    In the tightest of hugs, they felt my salty tears
    I am disgusted with my species
    I can’t look at my own reflection
    they listened to […]

  • Bong rips on a rainy night
    Music fills our souls and milky smoke fills the air
    I’m stuck in a cloud’s embrace
    But I’ll never come down
    I don’t know if I’m in love
    or if this euphoria is all a gentle dream

  • My body aches for a warm bed
    But I won’t let it rest
    It doesn’t understand
    It will never see
    There’s a paradise inside my mind
    One that’s bursting to be set free
    The words pour out my fingers
    Making my knuckles dance
    They’re trying to sing the song of the desperate
    Quickly they release their silent chant
    This is a poem for an artist
    A melody for a madman
    For when the body aches for contentment
    Is when true creation begins

  • The cats are here and they know I’m searching
    What I’m searching for I don’t know
    Bring me a coffee
    I’m addicted to the drug
    But mostly like the smell
    The birds are flying away
    The sheep are going too
    They know why they leave
    But I’m not sure if you do too

  • SubtleWhispers commented on the post, fences 4 years ago

    The birds sat still on silent fences
    They colored the world with their loud feathers
    And painted the air with their sweet songs
    The world turned round and round
    To the music of the birds
    In tune with the metronome morning sun

  • SubtleWhispers commented on the post, accordion 4 years ago

    My mind collapsed like an accordion Foggy memories pulverized into dust Sparkles and glitters filled the air And they were gone just as fast as they came A soft color drew the Silence A Silence unlike any other For it was too precious, too sweet in it’s delectable detail And it all came back to […]

  • When you’re this young, yet this old
    You’re not quite sure if this year will be another at the messy kids’ table
    Or at the uninteresting lull of the adults’ table
    As I’m handed a glass of sparkling cider
    I guess I’ll also take one more year
    Of being called naive

  • SubtleWhispers commented on the post, bland 4 years, 1 month ago

    There’s something about the plainer ones
    Something about their introverted character
    It makes me crave their lifeless existence
    And form it into mine
    It’s just the roar of the colorful ocean
    Meeting the soft, quiet sand
    As if it were the first time, every time.

    Don’t brush your hair.
    I like things a little messy.
    People will judge us.
    They think we’re naive.
    But it’s what we find in our adventures
    that make or break the deal

  • SubtleWhispers commented on the post, thorns 4 years, 1 month ago

    The little ant smells the fragrance from afar It’s a floral smell, light and sweet This fragrance is emitted from a garden of roses Their magnetizing aura bring the ant closer But danger lurks ahead What he doesn’t know Is that the thorns are there To keep the weak ones away The ones who are […]

    I’ve never loved you. I only loved the lustful glances at me Why am I in a hurry to make you love me? Why do I cry now that you don’t? The mirror lies to our faces Makes us hate our own flesh I turn to you because you loved The very bones that lay […]

  • SubtleWhispers commented on the post, flood 4 years, 1 month ago

    You love someone
    This person isn’t me
    You’ve thrown me away like an old sock
    And suddenly it all makes sense
    It all comes rushing to my face
    Flooding my eyes with tears of betrayal
    You love someone
    This person isn’t me

  • It was a marvelous quest
    through the tunnels of his soul
    In the depth of his dark eyes
    Through the iris rivers of navy
    A ship sailed to his heart and back
    Leaving no questions unanswered
    Captivating the very essence of his troubled mind

  • Cheekbones dusted with perfection
    Youthful hands reach across the piano
    Each note a mystery
    A sound sits still in the air
    Amidst the crowd
    Of blemished souls

    funny, we both used the use of “tears” in the temple one… but totally different!

    In reply to - drew commented on the post, temple As our eyes set, high on your temples my fingers prayed in circles, making wishes before those shooting tears that fell across the horizons or your face. • View
  • SubtleWhispers commented on the post, sleeve 4 years, 1 month ago

    My heart used to rest comfortably on my sleeve
    Then something taught me to fear the world
    Fear the ones you love
    Pain is their weapon
    Heartbreak is their song
    My bleeding broken friend now lies
    Beneath my shoe
    Never seeing the light of day

  • Today I’m a poet. An introverted mystery. Nowhere to go, nowhere to be. I’m on my own today. Tomorrow I’m a singer. A restless boom in the spotlight. Nowhere to go, nowhere to be. I’m on my own tomorrow.

  • SubtleWhispers commented on the post, temple 4 years, 1 month ago

    We worshipped the sun
    And rejoiced to the moon
    Our tears were wiped from our faces
    As we walked along
    Together in June
