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.

i dont care
not even about myself
i dont care, that i dont care !!
i have no more of me to share
people have bitten chunks
out of me
ther,s nothing left to see

how does a person get to this
final destination ?

the low of the low
hollow
lights on nobody home
down and out
no more fight left
just a tragic pathetic
excuse for a human being

but i dont care
stare if you like
try taking another bite
slim pickings for sure

feel dead
enough said

Tapping my feet ..
 
Ripping paper ..
 
Tapping my fingers on my desk
 
What the hell! Why cant i rest?!
 
I feel so anxious, i cant relax
 
So tense, you wouldn't understand
 
Being as dense as you are
 
Too different to even par
 
You just dont understand!

Winter, another Hell-bound
summer has passed, followed
by the fall
.
the wind whispers
in your ears, delivering
portents of snow
.
We sit by the fire
and think on what
was and shall be again,
my greatest love.

to a realm of mountains

I am
more...
than the strum
of my heart
I am
less
than a multitude
of breath...
I am more
a soul, for whom
any sole could attest...
I am
thought
comin' together
then fallin' apart
I am
more, or less,
truly bleedin'
the question...
'Who thou art?'

I am
less...
than the whole
of my bein'
I am
insufferable pain,
a vision
none has seen
I am more
yet, less than
all that I feel
I am
life...
so achingly...

Succumbing to this feeling, free falling through a black uninhabitable phase. I've reached it once more, I'm only on my knees again. Fucked up again. Disgusted by what I've let myself become. Im only worth as much as you've made me to believe. Your beautiful disease, let's see how much I can take, by allowing this mistake. Washed in the blood of the girl she once was, not a drip of sanity left. You've managed to make sure of that. I guess I'm only as good as you, so all I feel about you is also my own truth. I really hate you now. I'm questioning myself. Allowing the proper words to come out....

every inch of me shivers
as the snow falls around me
trench coat drifting with each step
my cigarette heats my lungs
tears sting my eyes
this heart does not beat
but blood does pore
it all comes to pieces
i feel complete
my feet drop me beneath a tree
a place to collect my bones
this is home

Weel me the wheel ill push the foundation
On the peddles that batman cycled domination
Trap my own tree to redeem satisfation
Analogue rock pool arousal arousal
My friend looks so pseudo, when his hair is with Judas
Slowly growing patience with a halo thats Wonkeys
Hazard, peeping piper pipeline devil colour artist
Warped landslide with time for your trauma faces
Rip the red rope, you funny bandit
Are you pregnant
Fruity baskets stalkers prices
Shave your chin with real suprises
Hands on my head im under arrest

“I felt a Funeral, in my Brain,
And Mourners to and fro
Kept treading – treading – till it seemed
That Sense was breaking through – “

i do not know
i do not remember much
busstops and sharing a bed
i suppose
antiques of nostalgia and
other such                                    marginalia of memory
One day you had a gerbil perched on your head
the next a tarantula
plodding up your thigh
blind stupid reticent
Terrified.

Who knows?
There's a light that never glows.
It's simply an illusion for lively eyes,
the darkness only shows when connection dies.
How would we know?
When the light goes on,
but it really died?
Who knows?
Who knows that I'm dying inside.

DU Poetry : Poems about Self : You and Your Self Awareness

Published on 31st October 2014 3:13am
Written by Firebyrd
She sat...
with a jumble of words
fighting...
to get out of her head.
Facing the
starvation of her spirit
Because her soul...
hadnt been fed
Thoughts screaming...
Bleeding to get free
Ripping through her mind
Tearin out her seams.
As she flipped through
all the scenes of her
Tainted history...
Trying to breathe...
waking up sweating at night
Then she grabbed a pen
and she began to write...
Flying through memories
Like baseball penalties
Her mind couldnt take it
But the...

Words on a page
seam arcane to those
uninitiated to their joys
-
and yet either inspire
envy or utter contempt
for those whose life has nae been but one book after another
in an endless stream of dreams

calm, towards the morning
I drift on a darkened sea
who has need of dreams?
.
in the mornings light,
race towards the open door
who has need of dreams?
.
bound in pages white
carry others dreams with you
who has need of dreams?
.
in the dreamers gate
undecided, I reach for
dreams dancing away

There's a wormhole of light looking down on me
through extensive battleship grey cloud cover
Its borders contract and expand
Depicting how my mind and emotions are right now
Now it's in the shape of a butterfly, symbol of transformation
Giving me hope I will survive this piece of turmoil that persists in a part of my life
What a year this has been
People, events drawn to me so I can grow
If I can remember this for the rest of the year
I'll enter 2015 prepared for monumental change
I understand now why I was building these foundations

Written by Primogenito
As I stand beside this man
My past and future steps before me
Memories of good times and bad
And of the champion that I knew I always had
He has been there when things got out of control
Together, we were on quite a roll
We created a life together, and as hard as it was
we have stayed a couple, if anything, just because
A united front, we bonded when it was right
But first and foremost, we continued to fight
To remain as one despite amidst turmoil
For a while there, we thought we were on a roll
Then life changed, and this man lost...

I feel the endless pain,
as it runs through me,
I only live in vain,
and I am never free.
I am not you,
you are not me,
we have two seperate doors.

My skin has got coffee stains
Rust with my bone structure
I've been battered and bruised
And I've got scars
Enough to equal stars

My flaws provide me a muse to sing
Type with chipped fingernails
And half blind eyes to see
My definitions of beauty are highly skewed
An outlier on the bell curve of normality

To be or disappear?
All I see around me is people
with frowns on their face
& no joy in the world.
Is this how it's going to be?
I'm not an adult yet &
all I have ever known
is to deal with all the sadness in
the world.
I don't know.
What do I do?
Isn't the point of life
living prosperous & happily
surrounded by the people I love?
Working hard to achieve success.
But what does all that come
down to?
You live your life, whether you're
happy or sad, judged by the entire
world. Trying to do better...

procrastination
the worst thing to be good at
ruined them
dissolving my BPD mind
all my life
i tried everything not to be one of them
as much as i dug into the concrete ground
i couldnt escape the reality
something so plain and clear
glowing crystaline
denial
im crazy
not crazy as in wild, confident, flamboyant, vibrant
crazy as in Boderline, Schizoid, Schizotypal, Paranoid
i must say im not suprised
i might just turn worse like them
turn into an abused broken record
no more hiding
time to lift my head above water ...

My feet touching yours
Awake feeling your legs slide up mine
Anger and hatred well up in my mind
