Cutie

Your eyes twinkle, 
Like a star in the sky. 
You hair is curly,
Like the waves on the sea. 
Your lips are,
As soft as a baby's skin.
Your face,
Makes the world spin round

Short Simile poem by Justin Benassi| Details | |

Distance

Are we not all
The night sky for our atoms,
A brilliant display for our elements,
A grace for our composure?
All are vivid; All are rich,
But as with any star,
Dimmer with distance.

Heartbreaker

If only I had stolen as many hearts, as I have stolen things.
Unfortunately, as soon as I learned to like things better than people,
I realized the hearts of others would only someday
Become just as broken as my own.

Short Simile poem by Cameron Hartley| Details | |

Sweet Dreams, Love

Watching you
Falling asleep's like
Watching day break
And stars fade
Into early dawn gray
It's as soft as the sunset
Sure as the rising sun

So sleep well
Dear i'll be here in the morning
I see those tired eyes closing
Have sweet dreams, my love
My dear

Short Simile poem by Giorgio A. V.| Details | |

Metrical Exactitude


Composing good
structured verse, 
is like piloting a
powerful racing car
in a tough and
demanding track.
Your functioning is
calculated with
precision 
and you are judged
according to that.

Killer

KILLER

Saturnine sleeper of the night,
Soaring slowly, out of sight,
Sleekly shadowing the gloom,
Silent harbinger of doom,
Innocent assassin, surreptitious, sly,
Stainless scandal slipping by,
Scything swiftly through the dark,
Hark the herald warning: Shark.

Short Simile poem by Andy Craig| Details | |

Stars


The stars seem hidden,

 yet I know they are

 out there. I have seen

 them on clear nights,

 bright wonderful twinkling

 starlight. It shows the

 vastness, the extraordinary

 feat of our Heavenly Father.

 It brings upon me a smile

 of delight.

Short Simile poem by Cameron Hartley| Details | |

Oragami

A smile becomes too hard too hold
When waterlogged and under pressure
So my face crumples in
And folds up into new patterns
I've never never let you see before
Transparent as rice paper, delicate;
Not so graceful as a paper crane
Near as fleeting as a paper boat
Vanishing downstream

Short Simile poem by Cameron Hartley| Details | |

The Dawn Broke Like A Heart

The dawn broke like a heart,
In shades of violet deep as violence
That bled into the night...

The sun rose like a love affair,
Sky scarlet with a jealous blush
As the first light burned like lust...

The day came like a nightmare,
Drowning in a blue deeper
Than you've ever seen...

Short Simile poem by Emile Pinet| Details | |

A Spontaneous Reaction-

I
love
your smile
even more
when it's not practiced,
but tugs the corners of your lips
as a spontaneous reaction to my presence,
for it immediately solicits a genuine smile of my own in return.

Short Simile poem by Karissa Kelley| Details | |

Parallel love

From afar I watch the sun 
That's setting in your eyes..
Shades of green melt into tangerine..
But I'm just a different hue 
From violet to pink and blue
We may never be intertwined..
For we are parallel dimensions 
Of the mind
But if I may say 
The vibrance in your eyes 
Is beautifully enchanting..

Short Simile poem by Andy Craig| Details | |

Waking beauty's

Missing you every day
like I miss the sun. I
miss the comfort of your
smile. Waking beauty's
you give me the strength
to make this life seem
more than worth while.

I  patiently await the sun
rise, like your sweet love
its beauty truly opens my
eyes. Reveals to me the
beauty right by my side

Short Simile poem by Andy Craig| Details | |

Laughter

 Jokes and laughter,

 some ones patter.its

 all part of the banter.

 Crack a smile its been

 a while, have a laugh

 be all out daft. A sore

 side and tears, drawn

 from memories of ever

 lasting silly cheer.

 Laughter is the cure, its

 sure to turn that frown

 upside down.
