Sleeping troubadour
Ask his ink why he slumber
Or his papyrus
Words they themselves would forget
Since their lord is indisposed

I am a pen-wielder
A word bender
Making sense
Off assumed nonsense
Passing timeless messages
With few words
Causing my pen with ease
To bleed my thoughts.

Dear Dana

So... how have you been?
When can I read your latest again?
Oh, yeah, in case you didn't know,
I've read on Drake's radio show.

moments went

sun sauntering, sun filtering
streaming through most moist silver branches
and I hear in the distance calling,
a tune most sad, to be remembered
most assuredly.

The Game

I played the game 
By the rules for too long 
Called them out
Said they were fools 
When they did wrong 

But whoever wins playing fair
How can you win 
If you dont take the Dare ?

A poetess once told me,
"Power shifts balance all the time
Empires crumble
Wealth and greatness shades too.
The only prosperity you can bed forever is love."
So i married her.

Short Poetess poem by Cameron Hartley| Details | |

If They Remember Me

I am content

With being a 

A stranger's smile

An almost-heard song

A single line of verse
That echoes

But if they remember me
Let them remember

Something that sparkled

Short Poetess poem by Alex Riker| Details | |


Your actions define you

You create your own persona

The power lies in your hands

It's your own aroma

Build it strong

Be a winner

Don't worry about mistakes

Everyone's a sinner

Past Her Prime

A poetess well past her prime
Had some trouble when writing a rhyme.
Her limericks lagged
And her readership sagged
You could say it was really a …tragedy!

A dream is but a thought

Laid out like a movie

They're there for you to absorb

Like a mind smoothie

Dreams are a message

In a hidden format

We try to decode them

But that is a skill we lack

Short Poetess poem by Milan Georges Burovac| Details | |

Most beautiful muse

you are my most beautiful muse
from the Pleistocene to a kiwi
from a storm to the heaven
from the blue age to a gnosis
from a hearing to the naked eyes
I love your pink poetry
caressed by the absolute

Short Poetess poem by Tobi Osunkoya| Details | |


She dreams of a throne
where she is not alone 

Dreams of stars 
That aren't to far 

Wishes for peace 
where pain is least 

Hopes for grace 
where she can see his face 

And still know her fame 
hasn't changed 
her name

I need a poetess

I need a poetess with passionate pens
To write me real and romantic rhymes
I need a sweet, super souper;
To write lovely lyrics
And make my heart happy
Every day and night
We’ll be lively;
Please will you
Be the

Short Poetess poem by J.L. Harlow| Details | |


Don't you know?
Oh, we all know. We see, and seek. 
I inhale stinging sand. The meek wreak of this heat. 
all we have are palms full of time, ticking with rhyme. 
Don't you know?
This is me, in all my entirety.

My girlfriend just loves me to death

As Time Goes, Goodbye

I wish there was a do-over;
God knows more poets loved her.
Even when racism existed,
So did her paper and pen.
I miss that Black Hawaiian;
I hope she's still writing.
Her skill is so unique,
Along with her beauty.

Short Poetess poem by Tara Andre| Details | |


Posing a question, a thought, an ideal
Opening eyes to worlds that were clouded;
Emotions and daydreams and feelings made real
Tied up in metrical mazes unbounded.
Remembering moments that symbolize bliss;
Your poetry succeeds if it can do this.

My pen is my sword
My paper my shield
Always I shall write
Light to shed
On the hard-to-express
Forever I shall fight
The negativities of this world
I pledge to sustain the fight
With all my might
Pen for the better
Reshape the world
So help me God!

I celebrate myself…
I am a diva.

I sing to myself…
I am a poetess.

I love myself…
I am a spirit. 

I appreciate myself…
I am a soul.

I respect myself…
I am a warrior.

I honor myself…
I am a Queen.

I esteem myself…
I am a woman.

Short Poetess poem by Ag Ki| Details | |

layers peel

I had a dream,
It was a nightmare.
I remember nights where,
I’d sleep. 

I don’t wanna feel lonely, 
it feels too real.
But if I don’t feel lonely,
Then I don’t feel.

Again my layers are starting to peel,
Which is a sad shame,
I was just starting to heal.

Centralized flowers
Coming to me middle spring
They need one specific thing
Garner all their strength
Inside my greatest flower
Show off magnificent rose

she is my wife

A sweet poetess named Gwen
is like the Soup's mother hen.

been gone almost two years now. Sure miss her!!

BRAINSTORM: A Letter To A Poetess

When the sun tries not to shine
And the rain won't fade away
When the clouds black the sky
And you can't tell night from day
Remember why we're here 
We make the world a better place
When the tempest is severe
It's the tide we can change

Short Poetess poem by Wendy Henry| Details | |


A combination of feelings for one single person
A loving, guiding muse 
Supporting a mythical image of life.
Brazen double standards
Found upon support of one another.
Forbidden passions understood
Embracing the occasion
As enveloped upon
An unexpected smile!

Short Poetess poem by Jeffrey Bovee| Details | |


Turning time and darkened footprints
Paved promises and lost calls
Wilderness songs and wishful thoughts
Arrivals at the common cause
The seasons merge and we wrinkle
Skin rooting deep into history
Sharpened eyes and tired fingers
Grasping for words or a fable

Plastering purple push pins on pissed poetess
Producing panic in preheated porridge pot...

Gem finders

it looks so ordinary 
another message
coming from  them

they're not an actuary
but searching for good forage
spending time on each gem

they're each a good fairy
sending encouraging postage
confirming another gem

quotidian pie with cherry
free for storage
coming from them

Canary Bird

In Riverside, a bird used to live years ago
nearby the only window of his branch,
a big lovely tree, he often sing terrific warbling 
rhymed cool songs early in the morn
and so every day at sunset. I asked
Is it a canary bird flower with some other?
Who makes that lovely "prose and poems"!
