A Cranky Old Man

By Coach Phatty, published on Jun 15, 2014

When an old man died in a nursing home, nurses found this poem. Its quality and content so impressed them, it was spread throughout the nursing home and afar. The old man’s sole bequest to posterity has since appeared in the Christmas editions of magazines around the country and appearing in magazines for Mental Health. A slide presentation has also been made based on his poem. And this old man, with nothing left to give to the world, is now the author of this ‘anonymous’ poem winging across the Internet.

Fibromyalgia Life – Poem

By Shaun Gibson, published on Jun 9, 2014

Another day of pain in my mind it feels like rain

The strain of pain develops inside me daily

I have nowhere to run and nowhere to turn

I am stuck alone with this demonic pain

~~

I try to show love and be a good man but it’s hard

The pain can turn me the other way, makes me bark

I sometimes ask how I get past each minute with hell

In reality it’s about getting past a day, I don’t know how

~~

My body burns as my mind is tangled with thoughts

The thoughts take me to places I don’t want to go

I have no... (more)

Love Poem

By Shaun Gibson, published on Jun 4, 2014

hold a touch to feel your breath every day

I awaken every day and you are my first thought

I need to feel you, hear you, your breath against me

I need you more than a lung needs air, I think it’s love

~~

Like Alpha needs the Omega, I need to know your warmth

Our sameness make us one, our differences make us two

When the night comes I need to feel your naked next to mine

Skin on Skin we intertwine as one soul, I think it’s love

~~

I am on a path to love you more, prepare for what’s in store

The love I hold comes from... (more)

A Death Called Dove

By D. Sager, published on Mar 3, 2014

Found then a little dove cowering in the birth of new

A blade came near and scant to miss

only a hairs breath relinquishing bliss

Flying before her time with wind both a friend and foe

Thinking to see, her wings grow tired

Blind fear rushes in ne'er more inspired

A shy grasp at what becomes a mysterious fateful lore Trying but giving away the hidden life

Reduced to nothing and shut in by strife

Again the hungry clock stood its watch o'er gentle dove Only to alight were she would ne'er to fly

Wings fail to carry her to comforting sky

Talented... (more)

Goodbye

By Rahul, published on Jan 1, 2014

Goodbyes are always hard -

but this time I’m prepared.

Knew’d never get to say bye -

the way it is mend to be.

But this time I’m prepared -

to cherish each moment -

spent with you, for I knew -

it was time to say bye.

But this time I’m prepared -

to walk with you,

just like you once did,

guiding my tiny steps.

But this time I’m prepared -

to show how much I care.

And to thank you for -

all that I have become.

The invisible person in my house poem

By Shaun Gibson, published on Nov 7, 2013

2nd proper poem ever here, go easy on me!

Uninvited, it comes and goes as it pleases

It comments to everyone in my house

We all have been changed by it in some way

But nobody invited it

It makes decisions none of us like, we hate it

We face it every day; we deal with it every day

It decides what we eat and where we go any day

But nobody invited it

It starts arguments and causes friction with us

It comes into our home and rules the manor

It laughs at us as we do what it tells us to do

But nobody invited... (more)

Lie Anyway

By D. Sager, published on Sep 12, 2013

Speak with your face turned away,

words that I long for you to say.

I believe them even if they may

keep my logic in constant sway

Holding my aching mind at bay

go ahead my love, lie anyway.

“PAIN”

By Shaun Gibson, published on Aug 3, 2013

...sad

But they are only gadgets spent with crooked money

Sometimes alone at night when in pain it’s funny

I surround myself with the latest stuff to make me feel happy

When in reality it doesn’t work I still got to change that nappy

As I type this shitty poem I feel the burn and take a breath

I try my best to write the words but I know I am no Macbeth

The pain starts in my toes and ends in my brain, it travels all over

Not a part of my body that isn’t sore I speak to my dog called Rover

Lisha is her name a brilliant dog... (more)

A Promise

By Rahul, published on Feb 16, 2013

Can’t get you the moon,

Nor do I promise the stars.

But a smile on your face

is all that I promise.

To be the reason for your smile,

that spark in your eyes,

that rhythm of your beat,

is all that I promise.

Start over each day,

love you in a million way,

walk with you all the way,

is all that I promise.
