Red-Felt Scars
L. B. Mek said:

brave write
\'scars to your beautiful\' comes to mind
our ugly, can sometimes blossom
into that which grants us relief
\'when you\'ve reached rock bottom\'
it\'s easier to follow the only path
left to you...
(or something like that, what do i know)
thanks for sharing, I thought this was well written, dear Poet

This is self indulgent and I am left wondering at the purpose.

I related, as my words below will show
thank you dear Poet
it helps us to know we\'re not alone;
nothing quite like that parent lottery
all the love they intended
yet we\'re rotten through to our core
is 9am too early for rum...
(I will die childless
just to insure, I will never become
like the toxic men
who exemplified fatherhood in my
I\'m enough
my accursed bloodline, i\'ll rid the world of
and yes, when that time comes
he\'ll be no more that dust, to be
I\'ll be speechless with grief
but a part of me will finally find
a true serenity...)

That\'s good news. Your poem portraits a street junkie.
Not that their the worst in the world.
Mature right.

Mirror to Death
L. B. Mek said:

couldn\'t help relating
to your honesty and bravery, dear poet
succinctly written and devoid of unnecessary, dramatics
reads like raw emotionality, reaching out
through a canvas, inked
with a trace of hope..
forgive me
your words inspired me to scribble a little reply:
(indeed, that \'great perhaps\'
of utter nothingness, where
musical melodies, serenade
in that serene silence
of unmistakeable, stillness
there is romance in that imagery
in that, blank nothingness
but such thoughts are often born
of our selfish mood swings
where all is \'woe is me\' convenient
see, in actuality
we know, already
that somewhere, someplace
someone is enduring
hundred times, a harder life
much worse, than we are
and is still, smiling bravely
for those mere handful few
that may be sad
to wave that final goodbye...)

best friends for (n)ever
L. B. Mek said:

don\'t explain yourself, dear Poet
those who read
willingly understand
... the rest, Fck em!
This is your space
you own it, just be You
no explanations
no apologies
no declarations
needed, we
that appreciate your voice
will read and decide for ourselves
all you need do
is write, write and write
till you feel like, your squeezing
the left few syllables
left in your chest..
\'stay Strong!\'
while I empathise
sadly, I never met any of my grandparents
so I can\'t pretend, to relate
thanks for sharing!
may he rest in peace

a poem? a vent? a hello? or a goodbye?
lalalaEulalie said:

Thanks for sharing this piece of writing. Do not let it be a goodbye. Unless you are saying goodbye to something toxic (like people or habits.) But not a tragic goodbye. Life is difficult and there are many slumps. Life is like a roller coaster with its ups and downs. \"If you want the rainbow you must have the rain,\" as they say.

I hope you will find something to pick up your spirits. You are worthy, and loved, and life will not be dismal forever.

Me & You
L. B. Mek said:

Time, is a strange
at once, it distances us
from pain and hurt
yet belatedly, after Time
has elapsed, makes us realise
that we yearn - for, we
already had
and no amount of \'new\'
will chase away that simple
(a great shorty
thanks for sharing. dear poet)

Ghost Kid
L. B. Mek said:

works both ways
you can ghost, those
that don\'t acknowledge
your worth, dear poet
don\'t turn yourself, into a ghost
because of someone\'s actions
always remember
that you, dictate your life
even sat, in a jail cell
of your mind\'s making
so long as you\'re breathing
you have choices, and those choices
afford you volition and direction...
thanks for sharing

To be treated like a ghost while they most likely are ghosting you. What insight, we can turn others to ghosts when we ghost them. Thanks for sharing.

Sinner Sinner With No Winner
L. B. Mek said:

firstly, your Author\'s comment
was just ummm - awesome!
you have a natural eloquence
even writing, in the shorthand
of modernity..
your poem itself, I found
spoke of the disillusioning distance
a lot of people, can relate to
that juxtaposition, absence
of an ever-Present, deity
seemingly, being
so consistently, Missing
in our everyday
of toil and chaotic, strife..
for those looking for signs
of some divine, guidance
or solace
it must feel
like they\'ve been abandoned...
\'It\'s me:
Your favorite nobody;\'

\'It\'s me:
The ghost you can\'t see;\'
what, a sad thing
to do to yourself
to invest, in a faith system
you feel, alienates
and hurts you..
better, maybe
to walk away and find, something
more tangible, for you to relate to...
(an engagingly, Timely
and thought provoking write
thanks for sharing, dear poet)

Hauntings Aren\'t Always Bad
L. B. Mek said:

indeed, \'life is messy\'
but so what
don\'t we spend half our time
doing cleaning chores
at home, at work
even that inevitable spill
form a pint\'s first sip
we wipe, clean
and do it all again..
so why is it such a big thing
when we\'re doing it internally
caring for that most crucial parts of ourselves..
write it all out, boldly
heal those bruises, as best you can
clean it up and prepare to go forth
and mess yourself up, all over again
sing your Truth, loud
and live your life: Proud!
(thanks for sharing, such an emotive read, dear poet
forgive me, if you take offence
to any of my words
I meant no disrespect)

Tick Tock (I\'m The Clock)
L. B. Mek said:

good that you\'ve found an avenue for release,
its a fck\'d up wolrd
lots of bull sht
we\'re forced to consume, for free
offered in the form of healing
that\'s not, costly..
