The Perfect Night

The cool wind blows
as I sit by the fire
looking up at the sky
thinking about all I desire

The night is dark
but the moon shines bright
illuminating the world
with its precious light

I listen in silence
to little critters around
wishing the moon
would never go down

This feeling is perfect
if only it would stay
but sadly I must watch
it all go away

Words

“Why do you do that to yourself?”

“Please tell me. I'm really worried about you.”

“I don’t understand how pain can make you feel better.”

“No I don't, so please explain it to me.”

“Calm down. I’m just trying to help.”

“You may not want help but its something you need.”

“Please don't say that.”

“The world can be a happy place. You just have to find what you're meant to do.”

“If it helps then I'll say anything.”

“If words are just words, then why do you let them get to you?”

Light

I may be tiny
but I shine bright
I illuminate the sky
in the dark of night

Many see me
and don’t think I matter
probably believing
I’m nothing but splatter

But the few who look
in hopes of finding me
know that I’m more
than I appear to be

poem 2 comments challenge: Rain

An Adventure In The Rain

I’m stuck in the rain
as it comes down faster
feeling like my life
Is nothing but a disaster

I’m stuck in the wilderness
on a hiking trip gone wrong
getting colder and colder
but trying to stay strong

I keep hiking the trail
in hopes I will see
something worth seeing
Staring back at me

I keep going on my way
till I come across a cave
that can keep me dry
and be the shelter I crave

When the rain stops
I leave the cave to discover
a sparkling wet landscape
that is unlike any other

My Best Friend

    The sky is just the right shade of blue. Not a cloud to be seen. I listen to the birds singing back and forth. I have climbed this tree almost everyday of my life since I can remember. It’s my home when I need comfort. It’s my sanctuary when I need an escape. I always come here alone. It’s my own personal tree and I don’t like to share it. I can see mountains and rivers from way up here. I feel free to think anything I want without restraint. It far enough away from town so all I ee is 360 degrees of pure nature.I feel bad for the tree. He only has me to keep him company. I am not the best but at least i’m something. We have grown up together. A weird as it sounds, I think he’s my best friend. We are always there for each other. I don't know what i will do without him when I go off to college. I’ll have to come and visit. I never knew how much a tree could impact my life. Seeing things from his perspective is a whole lot simpler than seeing things from mine.

poem 1 comment challenge: Sure

For Sure

One thing I know for sure
Is how unsure I am.
I am always pondering
and questioning life's aspects.
Life's aspects are so complex
that my brain can’t understand.
Understand I cannot but
not for lack of trying,
trying hard to think of
anything at all I know for sure.
For sure there must be something
I know to be absolutely true.
Absolutely true is how unsure I am
that I don’t know one thing that I know for sure.

Realization

In that moment
I realized
Just how much
I despised
Every single
Word
That your mouth
Slurred
My anger
Just keeps rising
As you
Continue criticizing
I don’t
Really care
But you keep
On with that stare

poem 0 comments challenge: Love

My Many Loves

Bright blue sky
Cool breeze
Sun’s rays
Green grass
Birds chirping all around
Slow moving white puffy clouds
Not a care in the world

Lots of colors
Painted canvas
Acrylic paints
Different sized brushes
Soft music
Inspiring ideas

Kicking the ball
Traveling down the field
Running and guarding
Keeping an eye on the ball
Adrenaline rush
Ticking clock
Blocking the shot

Staying still
Listening for birds
Snapping the shot
Hoping for perfection
Walking aimlessly
Enjoying the moment
Looking from new perspectives

Autumn nights
Bonfires
Marshmallows and smores
Movies and popcorn
Tea and books
Long walks

poem 0 comments challenge: Forest

The Endless Forest

I go into the forest
The forest thickens
Thickens all around
Around me animals hurry
Hurry in every direction
Every direction is blocked
Blocked with vines and branches
Branches sticking out
Out of many trees
Trees are endlessly tall
Tall yet rising higher
Higher till the sky is gone
Gone from my view
My view is closing
Closing the deeper I go
I go into the forest
