Self Poems

Personal poetry about the way you feel about yourself

This area is for personal poetry: poems about yourself and your feelings about who you are. Poems here focus on identity, ego, self confidence, insecurities and personality. For readers it's a chance to get to know the poet better and for writers it's an opportunity to analyse themselves by poetic means. The self poems category encourages the poet to lay themselves bare for all to read about, it can be both a frightening and empowering experience.

Two points set bounded
in a plane of space and time
a known distance apart
a third number is what you
alter, modify or change
with one number you
can change a small thing into
something far larger
making a small figure be
proxy for something larger
with another one
you can make something far, close
spanning the distance
with your hands that takes mere hours
or countless lifetimes to cross

This time last year we
were on the way from georgia
with our new eleven
month old daughter, my cousin
she is still my greatest joy
She's what gives me hope
she helps me get through my days
for three hours i play
until her bath time and bed
and i return back down stairs.
i hope this wide world
gives you all the joy it can
none of the sorrows
mommie and daddie love you
very much, let us hold you :)

Wasted days I have lived
Nothing given nothing earned
What is my existence
Why am I here
What world am I living in  
Who's mind have I stolen  
With my wicked ways
Once was young and hopeful
Now nothing lift but darkness
My hurt is no greater then others
But it also is no less
We all live our own hurt
But we live we must
Fore it is this hurt  
That makes us want to live  
My hurt is the pain I feel daily  
But I keep going for my friends
I don't want them  
To feel the hurt I feel

The hammer of my hatred
a simple tool
Battering at the wall of my heart
the love that used to dwell there
Falls apart

Darkness infects the machine
pumping the virus of mistrust
Swallowing up everything

Spiraling deep
into the abyss
Engulfed by shadow
I reach the emptiness

the roots of my soul fall

All that's left is the shell of who I used to be
filled with the worst part of me

How is it that i
should allow my spouse to rip
out parts of my mind
poems deleted press by
press... is stopping her so wrong?
some woman's notebooks
getting washed by a boy friend
or spouse is so wrong
but i'm evil because i
won't let my spouse delete stuff?
both things break a soul
one poem lost at a time
if my wife is mad
she can write it to tell me
and not tear my broken mind

From Google to Raven should i go dark for six months...
It appears that HHMCameron has not logged into any of his Google/Android Accounts for six months
He is very sorry to bother you with this, but you are the only one that he could think of
He trusts you to preserve anything worth preserving....
and as much of what he has written deals with his (once) relationship to you (and the shards of his mind that he was left with thereafter), you may want to give it a once over before deciding what posterity (that finicky beast) needs to see
he has always...

Written by Jude Hurst LastSmile
I sit and wait
Nothin’ to it
Choice is my sin
Hard to live with but
Without, I cry to think
Where I wouldn't be.
Not to be selfish but
Hating the rejoicing evils
Birthed from marvellous womb,
Contriving to see through blood soaked eyes,
Watching lovers wither and embrace
I eat my sin so angels bestow God’s grace of more room.

Fuck off!
Context is for those hiding lost happenings
I pray in the eyes of God he favours me
More than what I see
And those who watch me see my glory
Second only to death.

Fallen petals
of an adorable rose
Words, i remember
At every cock crow
it withers in the cold
without the truth untold
on your lies i fed sometimes ago
on the truth you sat like a troll
Fallen petals
of an adorable rose
Memories fading with embers
from the worst to the better
Remember, when the wind blows
when the rain comes
when the sun shines
I will rise again like a dove.

I do not know if I remember her fondly or not.
I only remember that when she held my life in her hands she didn't take it.
I was a very young 23 when we first met.
I do not recall if I saw her on my first visit or not, but by then I was already trapped by her daughters lies.
"How old do you think she is?"
"... sixteen?"
"Yeah right"
Every time I visited, I cleaned the living room, so I would have a place to sleep
Raven was atypical, on mood stabilizers, claimed to self medicate on mj, and would often scream at and hit her...

Whatever happens
the love stays
the feeling comes again

The things done
can not be undone
a dead-end circle
the feeling stays

I hate you
for loving me
and you hate me
for loving you

the feelings still stays

when i look into the mirror

Poetry is to see
Ignorance in a sentence
The filling out of pleasant words
The intention being
Making the reader cry a little
A poet sometimes is a mockingbird
A mimus humming bard of Christmas songs

Moments like these create memories
Like ornaments shining on the tree.
When I look deeply into them,
I end up seeing nothing
But my own eyes and face
Aging with each year.
Christmas is a time for rejoicing
In the birth of a godly child.
Giving me feelings similar to those
On the birthday of my own children,
For a father can't help but see
In his own child's face, the face of god.
My mantle is lined with pictures from the years.
A weary juxtaposition
Between memories both recent and distant.
For, like in the ornaments, I...

This flower so pretty
So rare and seemingly perfect
Is closing my throat
Stealing my breath
Poison flowing through my now black veins
But i cant seem to let it go

You make words and they immortal
you are trying to adjust this world in a bottle
and you are penning so beautifully days
i have a little words outnumbering your praise

you are tied in a great white ribbon
i just give a gentle push to free you from this prision,
and make you feel that you are not alone
i too cry darling for someone who is now gone

i think of you even when my mind is in dream
and am making our love shining using fair cream
you write so vividely do you get your talent hire
but listen baby your a poem has put me on fire

This above all: to thyne own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.
Farewell, my blessing season this in thee!

Who's got the answer to this little question, how do I redirect my minds attention. It's taking over my whole day even most of my sleep, I forget it about for a few seconds then it will repeat.
I have dreams which are pretty much swell, but then I wake up mad as hell.
Thoughts about the same shit different  day, working hard hell to make topic go away. It kind of strange cause it's been awhile, for some reason I forgot how to smile.

I looked for him,
And he wasn't there.
I yelled for him,
and he didn't answer
I reached for him,
But he didn't grab my hand.
Why are the people you need most
Disappearing into the black hole in the earth.
Never to come back up again.

Growing to learn and learning to grow is what I'm going through right now.
Moving on has been the norm for me and it's time for me to make a change within myself.
I've felt the pain and loss of those I've lost and
I've felt the hatred and discontent of those I've never really cared for.
I don't need your consent to tell me what to do and how to do it,
I'm going to do something I will do it,
If I say I'm going to do something I will do it.
I don't need your permission to tell me how to live my life when I don't live for you,
Just be concerned...

Permeating my skin
This December depression
Seeps into my soul

My constant hunger
For excitement and newness
Wears raw patches
Into my existence

What can I do?
Take another hit
Break another heart
Write a new lamentation
Of my diseased mind

I'm just an empty shell
Filling up on useless folly
Follow me down to hell
And dance with our shadows
Casting figures on the walls

Don't hold on to me
I'll only make you fall
Down into the pit
Of dark pleasures
And pain
