Empty

Empty
like bottled air
clinging to nothing real,
except to slippery inside walls
of space

Empty 
like heart chamber
holding on to first love
bouncing back and forth, side to side
then gone

Empty 
like nerve feeling
continued ceaseless pain
until all feeling is dissolved
or cold

Raining


Raining
Third week now
Like stinging prison bars 
Someone is lost out there, I hear
Whimpers

Despair

Despair. I am like a windowless, empty room. Bleak and dark i steal hope and give anguish. Distress i am to you. Lonely desolation. Like a cloak you wear me with great sadness.

Broken

Broken
I do not feel
My skin is numb when touched
Still waiting for the day to come
Repair

Drug Cinquain

Drugs
Changing People
Left And Right
It Makes Me Upset
Turning good people to addicts

Empty

Empty
silent darkness
Kiss’s you lightly
Emotionless moment to grieve
alone

Gone

Gone 
Without presence
Taken from sight 
Alone with no reflection
Vanished

Shrinking Violet

Death masks
the intrusive
images of past thoughts
being burned.  The soul's dark night dreams
lynched hearts.

Judging the Cover

Cover,
sometimes dreadful,
keeping from outsiders 
the beautiful, loving contents
unseen.

The Seeking

The Seeking
By: Noel N. Villarosa

Cinquain poem

Worries,
blaming oneself
for the ungrateful work
seeking a forgiveness to ease
the pain.

Young Girls Pain

Love
Deceitful, wicked
Weeping, cringing, loathing
Things children shouldn’t feel
Hate
 
Intimacy
Repulsive, severe
Struggling, bleeding, collapsing
My pain continues unheard
Father
 
Hope
Abandoned, faulty
Hiding, listening, praying
Life is my suffering
Justice
 
Purpose
Forbidden, fruitless
Reeling, clutching, grinning
The agony has ended
Redemption

Anxiety

anxious
pulse pounds   in throat 
stomach flutters    skin    crawls
metal taste on tongue, a pale pall
heartbreak

heart break
hands wrung red,    raw
cancerous lips, chewed sore
nails ripped from their beds bleeding, worn
anxious

Cinquain Six

Face
contorted smile
trying to disguise
the pain that underlies
mask

BORROWER

Borrower,
Borrowing appettite;
Increasing gradually.
Weary to live within means.
Handcap of saving culture;
Hand-to mouth disposition.
Lender connives with bailiff!

Depression

Depression,

Casting shadows,

Sadness overtaking fast

It threatens to last

Forever.

Schizophrenic

Listen.....
Creatures whisper
Paranoia consumes me
Delirious, manic; psychotic fantasy
Medicated

Eyes On Me???

Eyes on me,
People watching,
In my direction?
Can't they look somewhere else?

Feeling uneasy,
Discomfart rises, too.
Afraid to mess up,
Afraid to fail.

Eyes are on me.
I feel pale.
I freeze.

I don't want
The attention.

Regret

Regret
Terrible Sadness
Voices I can’t forget.
Forgive me, Oh wretchedness!
Madness!

Running In The Dark

In the dark,
Shadows whisper.
Dreadful creatures stir.

Running away now
Into the light.
Now all's safe.

Liars Lyres

Lies flute
Shadows discord 
Bellows forth to night's arms
Tears salty anger languishes
Deceit

Hollow

Hollow Drained of will Echoes of the past tease Reverberating off my soul absent ~~ Barren An empty husk Tears leave only dry stains Cracked and parched emotions Wither ~~ Useless End of the rope No savior in white pills Letting go, wanting the abyss Futile

Deceit

The traditional Cinquain.
A poem, I'm sure, everyone can relate to.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Deceit
Is like a knife
Opening up your heart
And causing it to hemorrhage
Always.

Deceit
Can scar your soul
Leaving you defenseless
Against a world full of vicious
Tyrants.

Deceit
Is a sick joke
That is played upon you
And you never see it coming
Ever.

Deceit
Will drive you mad
And make you scream in pain
You will never trust anyone
Again.

Still

As I open my wide brown glazing eyes....
I stop and realize.....
This is who is am...
You get one soul as you do one mind....But as you know when its your time you will fly...
Fly high in the sky with the angles above with no shame like a white feathered dove....
Souring like a bird,swimming like i fish in the deep blue sea...
Standing perfectly still with no motivation of moving....
Going down 99 just crew-zing...
Waiting on god to answer my prayer......
I keep thinking to my self life just isn't fair...
As i lay me down,I sit an think....
There's better ways to get my way!!!!
Tho hes by my side.....
Still no tears i cry..... 
I shall not die,With out goodbye......


So for now be still..........

It's pain, Intensified

I loved you once,
I love you still.
Always have,
Always will.

You took my heart,
And broke it to pieces.
Now all I have left,
Is pain that never seizes.

skeletons

Free 
or not free
long haunting skeletons 
trying to escape imprisonment 
for freedom


Details | Cinquain | |

Walls


Too thin
these weak walls stand,
keeping cold from comfort;
dividing hope from dying dream’s
lament.


Details | Cinquain | |

Still Love

Timeless
Beauty itself
Unseen yet known
For lack of a better word
Splendor

Ageless
Without ceasing 
Breath throughout ages
Love unto a broken heart
Stillness

Holy
Purely undefined
Contained by none
As a dying breath
Complete

Blanket Of Sorrows

Clinging
Wrapping tightly
Sorrow shatters daylight
Pushing darkness ~ beyond sunlight's
Grasping

THE PACT


She loved
him, he her. Life!
had not been kind, their land
dry and insipid, excepted
them both.
