          There was a time
          So far in our past
          That it's almost
          Unbelievable
          That it actually happened;
          The pub,
          A yellow shoe,
          Some beer,
          And then some
          Maybe
          These vexing secrets
          That we've held so long
          Are the reason
          That he still
          Won't call you back.        JD

Moon by P.o.N.

Take me to the moon
Away from all of this pain
My life never finding its way
With nothing else to gain

Take me to the moon
Where I can watch over Earth
Watching the prosperous lives
Unlike mine since birth

Take me to the moon
Where I can begin to wonder
Dreaming of something unreal
As I am getting pulled under

A woman feeds you
With her body
As you take sustenance
From her.
She feeds you
With her soul
And makes you feel whole.
A woman softens the blows
That this life can bring.
She’s comfort
Like balm on parched skin.
A woman is God’s idea of love.

Hope...
It's a terrible thing

Easy to bloom
But even easier to crush

It can be a saving grace
Or a death sentence

And its something I wish
So desperately
I could let go

Lua cheia
Lua vermelha
De tão grande
Fez-se nova
Entra de madrugada
E sorrateira
E fica vermelha
Tão viscosa
Tão torneada
Tão esperada
E aguardada
Tantas as horas
Que por ti esperei
Puseste-te no céu
Céu que parece rei
Contigo assim
Só sei que nada sei

Tell me all again,
What you think I should do?
Even if I do, just what will
I prove?
Blank spaces again, what is
It I can't see?
Everyday, it's same, no matter I
Try, then what's the point?
I know, you know, what
Differences we hold, striving,
Still to be like each other.
Just what is it that we
Want to prove? Accept,
Faith, sympathy, I'm tired
of these words.
Refine, my rhymes, should I?
I don't have to,
To express what I am.
Guilty, silly me, kind of
Tincture but still I am a stain.
What could I do again?
Maybe I'll find the beginning again.

Paper hearts torn apart
Learned the lesson
Of broken hearts
Everything’s beautiful
At the start
When you think you’ve found
Your counterpart

Just Be baby
Be drunk,be Bukowski
Be the whole god damn book of poetry
Be the whole goddamn movie
if that is what makes you happy
Be Titanic
Be majestic and drown
Be art, be Frida
Be love, be tragedy
Be who you want to be
Just be

There are days
when I feel like
I’m the only burning ember
left on this frozen planet.
A flame that the world refuses to see
and yet somehow,
despite it all,
I still exist,
I still burn,
even when it hurts to do so,
knowing I’ll always lack your warmth.

Don't hide behind your words.
Let them be a sword, not your sheild.
Wear your thoughts, like jewels
In a world full of noise, be a poetry.

مجھے خط ملا ہے غنیم کا
بڑی عُجلتوں میں، لکھا ہُوا

کہیں،، رنجشوں کی کہانیاں
کہیں دھمکیوں کا ہے سلسلہ

مجھے کہہ دیا ہے امیر نے
کرو،،،، حُسنِ یار کا تذکرہ

تمہیں کیا پڑی ہے کہ رات دن
کہو،،،،،، حاکموں کو بُرا بھلا

تمہیں،،، فکرِ عمرِ عزیز ہے
تو نہ حاکموں کو خفا کرو

جو امیرِ شہر کہے تُمہیں
وہی شاعری میں کہا کرو

کوئی واردات کہ دن کی ہو
کوئی سانحہ کسی رات ہو

نہ امیرِ شہر کا زکر ہو
نہ غنیمِ وقت کی بات ہو

کہیں تار تار ہوں،، عصمتیں
میرے دوستوں کو نہ دوش دو

جو کہیں ہو ڈاکہ زنی اگر
تو نہ کوتوال کا،،،،، نام لو

کسی تاک میں ہیں لگے ہُوئے
میرے جاں نثار،،،،، گلی گلی

ہیں میرے اشارے کے مُنتظر
میرے عسکری میرے لشکری

جو تُمہارے جیسے جوان تھے
کبھی،،، میرے آگے رُکے نہیں

انہیں اس جہاں سے اُٹھا دِیا
وہ جو...

i fell in love with your golden brown eyes that shine in the sunlight.
your gentle touch,
sweet smile,
kind eyes,
soft kisses,
warm hugs,
and your voice.
you show me love like i haven’t ever seen it before.
you opened my eyes and made me look at the bigger picture.
i am capable of love, and i’m capable of giving it to someone else, and i’m so glad i’m giving my all to you.

i gave up on love
the way you touched me
left bruises
yet you said you loved me
you abused my heart
you abused my trust in you
and then you took my heart
and you crushed it with your bare hands
you left me bleeding
i was lost
and all i was doing was looking for you.
i looked and looked,
but you were nowhere to be found.

.......... TERA, TUJSE OR TUJME......

Tu khas bhi hai..
Teri aas bhi hai..
Tuje khone ka ehsaas bhi hai...

Tu bawal bhi hai. ..
Tera khayaal bhi hai..
Tujse kuch swaal bhi hai.. .

Tu majboor bhi hai..
Tujme vo suroor bhi hai..
Par tera kusoor bhi hai..

Teri awaaj yad bhi hai
Or un yaado ke mohtaaz bhi hai...
Par unhi yaado se hume aitraaz bhi haii....

i saw the way your breath stopped
when their eyes devoured you
long before the crass words crossed their lips
i heard your thundering heart race
when they asked you for your name
and tried to buy you a drink
i felt your fear shiver its way down your spine,
the tension in your smile only evident
to the ones who carry the same pain
that you’ve learned to hide so well

sweet girl,
raise your voice
scream your truth to the heavens
tell your story to every soul who’ll listen
because things will never change
if we don’t let it out the ache

let our words be infinite
let the world hear every one
raise - your -voice

-ashley jane

Hold my hand till the end
Let the colors of love blend
Be it now or never
Shall no curse break us apart
As I sink you in poetic art
Make me your half part
May the metaphors of life flourish
& The glory of romance lift us high
Over the cloud nine

Poetic Tragedy

The reluctance of the morning wake.
Does not end when you start,
Your day.
The thing that was supposed to be better than,
The last.
Thing you thought was “wow, could this be”,
Any worse.
And you would have ended,
Your life.
Is exactly what other people want,
To imitate.
Your neighbor will lead to an ever living,
Heartbreak.
Is the worst thing you will ever,
Experience.
Is what you will need to survive in this,
World.

Every waking moment is nothing but a poetic tragedy, learn to embrace these moments.
