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.

Written by ImmortalSamurai
I am someone who has nothing left to lose..
Been lost and alone their whole life.
No, I am not an orphan.
I had a family...
A family that didn't want me.
A family who punishes me
when siblings act up.
You might be thinking I am over reacting..
Well good for you and your opinions.
But that's not the case here.
Sure there was ďgoodĒ times..
These times were rare.
Let me share my story with you.
I was born in a quiet place.
A peaceful place at one point.
When I was little I disappeared.
No I wasn't kidnapped. I...

Bright side, light side, full of delight side, apple of your eye,
Dark side, hard side, stamped with the mark side, soul that wants to die.
Sweet side, meek side, delicately speak side, soft angelic face,
Mean side, keen side, foul lucid dream side, dirty basket case.
Enlightened side, not frightened side, awareness is heightened side, lady of our Mother,
Restrictive side, constricted side, icy vindictive side, temptation †like no other.
Smile side, worth while side, calm nurture style side, loyal loving friend,
Sad side, bad side, clinically mad...

Long towards the morning,
the quiet wood drifting
howling along the breeze
wolves roam wood and glen,
silent padding and
occasional howl is heard
songs nature oft sings
call to us in dreams
make us find ourselves, it seams
i would with you roam
this wild wood, were i
to know your name, were i free
i speak of other
wolves, one that broke me,
one that guides her, keeps her safe
were they to call me
and welcome me home
to them i would sure return
beta, omega
aspires to be,
guide me...

I was only a kid
Just lost, looking for my way
What did I do wrong
Please oh please tell me
And let me go
Just let me go
Why you gotta keep holding me
When you only want me gone
Just let me go
I just wanna run free
But you keep me here
Like I'm on chains
Your only drowning me
Just let me go
Why you gotta keep holding me
When you only want me gone
Just let me go
You only sucked the life out of me
Only to hold me back
And make this life for me miserable
Everything that I do is wrong...

You only judge me
You pick on me
Your nothing but a bully
Hurting me fully
The words are more painful then you think
Your only making me sink
Tears role down my face
My heart slows it's pace
It's slowly dying
Because you have me crying
You don't have to be so mean
Just wipe my memory clean
Let me be
And you'll see
I'll stand up
And succeed!

I'm having blurred vision without tears in my eyes
Questioning when is it safe to cry
Please save me from this room
Save me from this emotional experience bound to be doomed
Drag me by my hair away
Because I promise you I want so badly to stay
Choke me until I can't breathe
Because this is something that I crave, that I need
Don't comfort me until I drift into a further atmosphere
Because then I'll beg you to stay here
Can you hear the pain in my voice
The subtle fear in my slim noise
Can you see it?

Back in side this cage deep within my brain
I'm let out only to feel freedom to torture me
Stuck inside I wish for air only to receive laughter
If I could scream it would be silent
Where did I go wrong
How can I overcome this
I reach so far for answers to fall farther from truth
If I can stay alive it will be the death of me

Silent, a tongue.. Whispering so
telling us stories of ancient and old
in our dreams a theatrical muse
showing us which or whether †to choose
Hints, suggestion.. Fill the question
what do we see and why †me?
note upon note, pixels intertwine
creating line upon line
A picture, a map.. Of mythical proportion
lid up torches, and pavement that stray
leading us further and further †away
we left, safety, solace, and fear at bay
Spark, a match.. A bright idea
on the verge of a celestial sphere
indulge in vision

Written by TheMostUnclean
Simple words intricately weaved
Cruel laments sounding so sweet
Unseen to the skies above
Unheard to the winds of fleet
I lay confused
Deep within
The many layers of my lucid dreams
Diligent demons
Of hate & rage
Floating calmly in my never ending sleep
Far away from the carnal world
No sins, no temptations, & no regrets
I gently free my shackled feet
And next the burdens of a million years
I untie
My few victories & my many defeats
The people I've killed in love
& in wars
The people...

I canít think straight, †
I know this.  
Style is day and night and  
Cigs just taste better in the cold.  
I like to let the burn set in.  
When I feel the sting,  
I want more and all at once please.  
Everything is jaded so I stay faded.  
Devious fantasies drive my mind.  
Iím doomed and demented at times,  
Newly found, most of the time,  
And out of control, all the time.  
See what you wannaí see,  
This is only the beginning.

Written by Spanker
THIS IS ME
NOT TRYING TO BE
ANYTHING IíM NOT
NO FANCY CLOTHES
NO SINGLE RED ROSE
JUST A HAMBURGER
WITH CHIPS
AND THE LOT
TODAY
I DONíT KNOW WHY
IíM ON ONE OF THOSE
NATURAL HIGHS
I GET
FROM TIME TO TIME
NO ARTIFICIAL JOY
NO DEEP GLASS OF WINE
JUST MY MUSIC AND ME
AND THE AIR THAT I BREATHE
AND MY SUN
WHO NEVER FAILS TO SHINE

Expectation is truely the root of all heartache.
I promised myself to live by this quote by one of my favorite writers.
Get tattooed on my person one day, as a constant reminded of what I should always remember.
But their whispers--
And their constant reminder of my birthday--
The things they were going to do--
I just expected--
I know I said I wouldn't.
But I did anyway--
And here I am trying to hold back the heartache.
At 6:32am on November 26th I'll be 21 years old.
And it will be my birthday.
And there will be nothing to show.
But a cake...

I donít want to drink just cause Iím 21.
I didnít want to drink when it was placed in my hand.
I donít want to drink alcohol, I donít believe in it.
The plans we make--
The words I say--
Thatís all they are, my Love, words.
I canít actually afford for that poison to touch my lips.
And fester. like salt on a sore, as it goes down my throat.
So what if Iím 21, it matters little difference to me.
I have no need to drink demon rum anymore than I did a day ago.
When I was twenty years old.
21, legal to drink.
When I was fifteen I was legal to...

on the bed the boy larger†
knows not his own strength
broken bone later
boy is taught to be careful
and always reserved
especially†when
it hurts and soul death is near
hold in, no one cares
moving around from
base to base does not let you
keep a lot of friends
first law: do no harm
second law: ignore†wishes
third law: do as told
come out of dream world
nothing you want matters, boy

What is this life
Smoking pot everynight
Who are you sarah?
Are you the slut they paint you to be?
Are you the cutter in the dead of the night?
Are you the student with a future?
Who do you want to be?
In love?
Alone?
Happy?
Breathing?
Who are you sarah?

In the beginning it was a dull knife
And in the end it became a razor blade
You see cutting doesn't solve anything
But it temporarily relieves the constant pain
My momma said "just be happy"
Go to school and be just like that kid
I can't
I'm fighting a monster in my head
If I hear you yell at me again
I'm gonna wanna hold a shotgun to my head
My momma cried
Seeing me almost unconscious in my bed
Empty pill bottle next to me
With fresh cuts on my wrist and a letter in my hand
I don't wanna remember what I...

as the flickering of the candleís glow,
shadows float in the light, so low.
dreams and trances, all given to mood,
solemn moments, as i sit. i brood.
eyes grow heavy with each changing tune,
leaving me blinded by tonightís full moon.
ever so lonely, as i sit,
only wishes, i have not to forget.
moments like we had before,
i wish them back - for they, i adored.
sleep haunts me evermore,
is it you at my door?
for to hold you tight, thatís the wish, i have tonight.
with lips pressed as one,
i would...

There's always a storm
Just below the surface
Where rages breed and form
The infinite well from which my anger spring
So tightly contained
A pebble can start a hurricane

a war inside my head
the conflict rubs me raw
needing a sweet release
an escape from chaos
ancient warrior mystic ways
the death of creativity
embers blaze romance fades
all that remains is me
digging deeper for comfort
but again iím forgotten
wanting to know peace
but the clock is jealous
blistered skin paper bones
watch the ink dry up
enchanted spell distant well
iím left to walk alone
slipping slowly into sleep
the walls are closing in
give me bliss on tap
fornication as a delicate image
