The majestic man
with his shiny hair
and straight nose.
This precipice shadows his real nature.
Look into his stare,
he eyes the number hungrily.
Hamilton on our ten dollar bill.

heed the illusion of crisis,
take care around those
PRESENTED TO YOU
keep the tip of your tongue
the back of your front teeth
and your hands balled
in fists in your pockets.

Of the night! Of the poet that lies to you. Beware of the enemy that does not show himself or the never mistaking friend. Beware of a heart that has never broken or a mind that has not had a dream. Beware of gum on a hot road. Of a crack in the ice. Beware but not weary! Beware of the big bad wolf.
By Shelli on 03.20.2013
Beware. Bware self-judgement. It cuts deep and leaves lifelong scars. Those scars won´t heal easily. You have to take it day by day. Be nice to yourself. Think happy thoughts. Don´t compare yourself. Smile.

‘Beware of dog’. Isn’t that what they always put signs up for? Or is it more of a “we don’t want visitors” sign? Either way, I never enter places with those kinds of signs. I feel unwanted. I feel like they must be anti-social.
They are anti-social.
Am I anti-social?
Maybe I’m just self conscious.

Beware the demons in your room for they will steal your eyes
Beware the demons in your closet, they will steal your heart
Beware the demons under your bed for they will steal your nose
Beware the demons in your mind…
…For they will steal your soul

As we crept into the tomb, we ignored the “beware” signs posted around the entrance of the building. Sarah excelled in front of me, eager to get on with the adventure. Suddenly a loud, “Hey!” sounded behind us. Terrified, we sprinted out and into the night.
To this day I still don’t know who the noise came from.

“Beware,” she cautioned, “there are more people involved in this than you think. ” She knew that if Dave dug any deeper he would find out about the surprise party.

beware of the big bad wolf,
who comes in broad daylight
under the ruse of handsome gentility,
to steal away your heart and
pitch it back to you with shattered pieces
in his full stomach.

There was once a man who was always sitting alone in the park. Every day I would walk by him and see him just sitting there. It was like he was waiting for someone who would never come. The man did not seem to have a purpose however. He was just there. However a peculiar thing happened that Saturday evening. It was something that stood out in my mind completely. As I was walking by the park I noticed, carved in a bench, the word “beware”. I then realized that this was the same bench that the man usually sat on and that he was not there.

lonely travelers beware stopping at roadside inns seeking food and comfort
these places are frequented by the most dangerous kinds of people
ne’er do wells, pick pockets and ladies of the evening
all waiting for unsuspecting passersby to stumble into their webs
beware, o take care

watch out. be careful. be aware of your surroundings and the people around you. there may be danger or risk, so keep your eyes open.

The clock was ticking in the abandoned tower at night. All along the beach, the waves were lapping, the gulls crying out into the shore. Something was hiding in the everglades, something dangerous and cruel, that didn’t care for the timid machinations of men and machines, something as ancient and eternal as the ocean waves. Beware, the thing that calls in the dark.
By Sarah on 03.20.2013
Beware of nut ass guys leading you on and trying to break you heart. They’re unthoughtful and do not give a flying fuck as long as they’re getting what they want. So in reality, beware of getting your feelings hurt or being let down by someone who you thought cared about you. Top 5 worst feelings.

Trust? Who? No one. Be wary when approached by the wily femme fatales. Their feminine wiles will drain you and leave nothing but a shell behind. You will become a spectre, a shadow of who you once were.

of anyone with drugs available. with anyone who is miserable. misery loves company, they all say. And that is just the truth. Beware of me. beware of you. Unfortunate incidences always involve drugs. unfortunate incidences end up with someone telling us to “beware.” but we never listen. beware of me. beware of you.
By Brittany on 03.20.2013
Beware of the dog. That’s what the sign said. I should’ve listened. I know I should’ve…but I never listen. You can’t tell me anything; I have to find out the hard way. And like all those other times, I found out the hard way again. The bite hurt. So did the stitches. And the rabies shot. But is it sad that I don’t regret it? Beware the dog. Beware my stupidity.
By Rachel on 03.20.2013
She has a smile like moonshine, a walk promises, and a dress on that says “Beware”.

of your own shadows, beware. since they congregate in a tight ball hidden from your direct line of sight, they may fester undetected. but take your courage in stride and bust them up good, or make friends with them and negotiate a firm settlement, so when you peer with care in the mirror, it’s light most around

Beware of the dog. It creeps up on you like a rising blue line, threatening to kill your joy. Threatening to kill your creative juices. Up up up it goes … closer and closer until the pain of the bite. Until you have to return to reality and listen to your law lecture. TImes up.
By Vanessa on 03.20.2013
We were lost.
The street was lined with rickety, peeling houses. Chain link fences rattled and groaned in the winter wind, and an open gate bearing the sign WARNING: BEWARE OF DOG creaked restlessly on its hinges. We had never been through this side of town before. Especially not at night.

beware of life, there are so many things in life that you need to watch out for because the world is filled with dangers. It is a wonder that you step out into the world and come home alive because so much of your life is put up to chance. why wont the car at the light hit you when they accidentally swerve? maybe because you stepped away just in time or that second you took to look in the mirror saved your life but you need to always BEWARE.
By sarah on 03.20.2013
Have you ever met that one person that you click with instantly, and you’re so excited about it and everything seems so perfect and lovely that you just want to basque in their glory forever? And then you tell your friends about them, or anyone who will listen really, and they say “beware”. “don’t go there, they’ll only hurt you” “we know” “trust us”. At the time I thought, and why should I? Why should I be careful. They’ve changed. They’re a different person. They’re not the person you knew. I let myself get attached and only ended up being hurt and alone. I should have heeded their warning and stayed clear.

she said to the boy as he pushed through the slightly opened door. but he didn’t hear her warning. he was peering through the opening. already captured by his own curiosity. ensnared by the visions he beheld on the other side. the light was dancing there.

“Beware!” I yelled. “Beware the Ides of March!” He looked the other way. I laughed.
I knew he was going to die. Fair game, I thought. Now it’ll be all the better when I kill him. I imagined myself stabbing a knife into his chest and it brought me great joy. And pity.
He will die, I thought. And I will kill him.

every shower is a bic razor
and a routine of crushing four aspirin tablets in my palm, because i never replaced the face wash that ran empty two years ago–
we were underage then but we made our own wine, (he kisses me and says we always have the most fun, i always have the most fun with you)
except i don’t remember him and he doesn’t remember me, standing naked warm under water with a new body he wouldn’t know
(longer, whiter, curvier, the excitation of new youth settled into plain proportions, i would be a virgin to him if we met again)
stretching onto my toes thinking of someone else in his place,
this is how strangers are

Beware the old man that lives on the hill. He walks over to the library everyday, humming to himself. It sounds like an wheezing wheel tumbling.
Beware of my ex. Oh how you ripped out my heart and fed it to me. I wish I had the moment back when I first saw you. It was love at first sight and you smiled because you knew. To the next person you date, beware. For you have a wicked way of making love be the most amazing and worst experience at the same time….heh. irony….

“Stop!” she shouted. “You’ll get hurt!”
The young boy turned to look at the fence in front of him. An old, rusty metal sign was nailed to it. ‘Beware of Dog’
By Tes on 03.20.2013
beware she said. Really? Beware of what? Why do they never give you more information than that. Fright tactics! Beware pshhhht. Beware shmware – however you say it, that’s what I’m thinking. I shrug my shoulders and open the door anyway. And that was the last/
