Nobody cares

  September 27th, 2018 by intothedark

What do you when nobody cares?

You reach out in pain

But there’s nobody there?
You’re slowly going insane
What do you do when you feel so empty
When there’s nothing left inside
You look in your heart, there’s nothing to see
But so many times you have tried
You keep reaching, but you’re just falling
Into the darkness even more
I’m just so tired of pretending
And I can’t do it anymore
I wish somebody would be there
When I need somebody to talk to
But I don’t think anybody cares
I don’t have a clue what to do
I just sit all alone in the darkness
Hour after hour, I can’t sleep
Why am I such a mess?
How have I fallen

shed

  September 26th, 2018 by undoubtedly

i have been graced with a voice so sweet and this voice rings like a bell. a church bell, to be precise.

i know others hear this comforting sound. the words she speaks and sings so pleasantly stick in our minds like the golden honey she does not allow.

she commands us to ritualistically douse ourselves in water as if it were holy. as if it will cleanse our wrongdoings.

every day is accompanied by her singsong voice in the background, whispering in our ears.

and even though this voice is angelic the words it professes are not so polite.

this voice is a ringing in my ears that will …

The phoenix

  September 24th, 2018 by another.anon.guy

Last time I had anything to do with poetry must have been like 10 years ago, in middle school. And my school path isn’t really literary. And English isn’t my native language. So don’t expect too much from this…

High and far in the sky,

Over clouds he could fly;

Phoenix was proud and spry.

Ending its aging fire

 

In his last, final cry

Spawns this new, and much dire

 

Dawn of rain in his stead.

Time has gone

  September 24th, 2018 by angeldiamond

Time is here

Time is gone

Love is near and love is high

Love is deep

Love is uncertain

Love is lingering

Love is nigh

Love is without

Love is sin

If taking to a deeper self

Love will reign high

Miguel De Unamuno – An Eternal Elegy

  September 23rd, 2018 by Taf Taf

Miguel De Unamuno – An Eternal Elegy

 

Oh Time, Time,

relentless tyrant!

Oh terrible mystery!

The past does not return,

it never comes back again,

ancient history!

Yes, ancient, but always the same,

terrifying!

Always present…

. . . . . . . . . . . .

When consciousness is deprived

of the passage of time,

what is it that remains?

What happens to light if the mirror is broken?

. . . . . . . . . . . .

Fierce Saturn,

oh

Constantine P. Cavafy – The City

  September 22nd, 2018 by Taf Taf

 

You said: ”I’ll go to another country, go to another shore,

find another city better than this one.

Whatever I try to do is fated to turn out wrong

and my heart lies buried as though it were something dead.

How long can I let my mind moulder in this place?

Wherever I turn, wherever I happen to look,

I see the black ruins of my life, here,

where I’ve spent so many years, wasted them, destroyed them totally.”

You won’t find a new country, won’t find another shore.

This city will

They say …

  September 20th, 2018 by Mirian

They say that I’m a lucky woman,
being healthy and successful,
living in good, rich Germany.
But sometimes I wonder
if people are blind
and completely heart-deaf here.
A few weeks ago,
I was waiting in a hotel –
A guest from Australia
was walking through the lobby.
A mobile on his ear.
I heard him talking:
„They are like robots here,
all of them!“
He couldn’t see me in the corner.
Then I just read HERE
from this young man
from Australia…
Complaining pretty much
about the same things over there.
Is there any better place?
Anywhere?
I doubt. I traveled a lot.
Hell opens everywhere I just
linger around long enough.
I stopped working now.
A freelancer, no lobby, no security,
trying to help other people.
Depression. Once again.
It is just …

Reason… No Reason…

  September 20th, 2018 by Itscolourlife

Yesterday I find a reason to live
Today I find a reason to die
Tomorrow what is the reason ?

Go back to my old self
Thats what I want
But it wont
Cause its already gone
The reason behind it

camaraderie

  September 20th, 2018 by undoubtedly

we do not speak the same language and we do not look the same way.

we are not flesh and blood. you are still family.

you bring me joy. you make me laugh. i love to be with you.

even though we do not speak, we communicate. you know me better than most people do.

you comfort me when i cry. you are always excited to see me. you are the sweetest thing i have ever known.

i do not know what i would do if anything ever happened to you before it is your time to go.

i heard all dogs go to heaven. i hope that’s true, because heaven …

christ

  September 19th, 2018 by undoubtedly

it is said that the man upstairs forgives all and loves all. he is a protector and a giver.

i often wonder if i am included.

i have spent my whole life pushing faith away. at the same time it has been forced down my throat.

i assume i am not included.

it is deadly

  September 19th, 2018 by Yikrens

to know I love the deaths creation.

but any of is for bme a taboo subject

 

so so don’t sing the deaths of. also I did.

 

this can’t be excused to some,

as strangers. maybe is takes a toll of relief..

but I’d stick to what I know as stranger.

and any must be alive. and that can be noone..

expediency

  September 19th, 2018 by undoubtedly

to live the life of a convenient blame is no life at all.

i am not the golden son. he looks just like you and i do not look like any of this so-called family.

you say all these things about me, your flesh and blood.

throw me into this cycle. curse my name and everyone who dare speak it in a way opposing yours.

pour your venom down the throats of everyone who is supposed to love me and have them excommunicate.

it is easier to point out all of my wrongdoings than to accept your own.

i know what i did but i see what you do.

unpretty

  September 18th, 2018 by undoubtedly

i cut my hair off because i no longer wished to be beautiful.

i do not want you to look at me and tell me about the way i look.

i do not care if i am beautiful in your eyes.

i am beautiful in my head.

i am beautiful in the way i used my broken second language to help a stranger from herself.

i am beautiful in the way that i will put you above myself. i am beautiful in the way that i will give until i have nothing.

i am beautiful in the way that i love.

i am beautiful in my ability to mold these letters into words that …

2000

  September 18th, 2018 by undoubtedly

you will never love your daughter the way you love your son.

you say he has his head on right and he is someone you can be proud of.

i do not think you have ever said those words about me.

i am sorry that i am not what you wanted.

you told me i would have been an abortion if it was not for my mother’s faith.

i think you gave up on me before i ever breathed my first breath.

unclean

  September 18th, 2018 by undoubtedly

i was twelve.

he reached between my legs and touched what was not his.

the guilt, the shame, the sadness… they practically ate me alive.

i was fourteen.

he pulled off my shirt and kissed me where i did not want to be kissed. i wanted those bruises gone. their weeklong stay was too long.

i was told that a boy will touch you like that when he likes you.

i tell myself a boy will touch my heart if he likes it so truly.

inferiority

  September 18th, 2018 by undoubtedly

i miss his large, warm hands and his scent. i miss his crooked smile and silly jokes. i miss his hugs and the way he fidgets in his sleep.

i wonder if he misses me.

perhaps he misses the other girl. the prettier girl, with the long, brown hair and dark eyes. she has a beautiful face and a white, straight smile. she is petite and thin.

she produces art but not in the same way as me. she draws and paints and all i have are these lousy words.

i do not think he misses me.

i see them together and i am left with a bad taste in …

Skalkottas’ music

  September 15th, 2018 by Taf Taf

” In music the passions enjoy themselves. ” – Friedrich Nietzsche

 

Nikos Skalkottas (1904-1949) was one of the greatest composers of the 2oth century classical music – I personally place him next to Kurt Weill and Igor Stravinsky. It’s a shame that nowadays most people (especially here in Greece) don’t know his work. Here’s the wikipedia page about him:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikos_Skalkottas

 

I should write what are the names of the compositions and the songs in this video and where the photos in it are taken.

36 Greek Dances

00:00 – 01:23 Epirotikos – photos from the region of Epirus in Greece.

01:24 – 03:22 Kleftikos – photos of various Greek mountains.

03:22 – 05:16 Tsamikos (An Eagle) – photos …

Life is boring , Reality is boring , real life is boring , real world is boring

  September 14th, 2018 by niki

Especially when you’ve realized that nothing we do here in reality will ever compare to our imaginations. And no, I’m not talking about petty, shallow, superficial, & stupid imaginations like most people only have with their simple-minded brains. I’m talking about all those best fantasy movies, games, novels, comic books, anime/manga, etc, with all their magic, superpowers, & magical, fantasy, adventurous world/universe with its limitless, unlimited possibilities.

Fuck this reality.
Reality is boring, stupid, & depressing.

reality is boring , life is boring ,
it’s all about money
i hate money
i hate business
i wish i live in the movie game anime manga novel comics books

I hate …

Honestly Honesty

  September 9th, 2018 by LiquidHuman

I’m not going to lie to you.
Sometimes i wish I could just fade out right here and now.
Im not going to pretend that I think life is one big open door.
And no no I don’t need you to tell me there is so much worth living for.
Because I won’t believe that yet.
I mean with the hatred and rigidity and sorrow and cruelty,
And how everyone thinks they’re right.
And well, I’ve heard it so much,
The arguments and rants of our parliaments
That I no longer believe any of us got it right.
And it’s slightly annoying that we’re so petty.
But not nearly as annoying as sad.
And you can call

Federico García Lorca – Suicide

  September 9th, 2018 by Taf Taf

(Maybe it was because you hadn’t 

mastered Geometry)

The lad was going blank.

It was ten in the morning.

His heart was growing full

of broken wings and rag flowers.

He noticed there remained

just one word on his lips.

And when he took off his gloves

a soft ash fell from his hands.

A tower showed through the balcony door.

He felt he was balcony and tower.

No doubt he saw how the clock,

stopped in its
