'the sea'

(beautiful!) immense and Poseidon-like,--the sea washes o'er my soul.

Silly thoughts

Love is Blind

They say Love is Blind Cupid's arrows hit Whoever they Find And put them In a Bind

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.

My Muse

Free-verse is my muse.
Her twisted cadence my signature.
Her chaos my beauty.
Her simile my symphony.
Her metaphor my song.

She takes my emotion and creates life
In splendid fashion!

EXCLAMATION POINT


that simile of a smile 
in your knowing eyes
freezes whatever is left 
of my confidence.


i feel like a terrified 
exclamation point
hurrying off to the tip 
of a brave sentence!

'the sweat of lovers'

Fragrant, erotic, red and swollen, the rose smells like the sweat of lovers.

Rainbow

Struggles and success, Sufferings and happiness, Dreams and Goals building to life; Like colours of the rainbow making light.
A blessed day for you my dear readers :) Cheer Up, God bless

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

The Mind of an eleven year old boy

Mom, today we studied simile
   What is simile? 
A sentence that uses like or as to compare two things

Like a green car riding on the road is like a running vine?

Or  A red car riding on the road is like a running red rose?

Yeah mom just like that!! woohoo!

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

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 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

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.

Short Simile poem by Mike Conway| Details | |

Dribble A Drop

Let it trickle
Dribble a drop
From the Tip
Of the Top
Till it sits
on the rocks
a little sip
then it flops
another is sick
Hit up Doc
here's another hit
Hear it pop
Pills will slit
Big willed thoughts
Like a wrist
Do not watch
the skin split
Like gymnasts' crotch 
Sorry a bit
Going for shock
Not even wit
Just mental block

My Only Flame

My Only Flame

Love, like fire, is all-consuming,
And forever should be blooming.
Endless courtship is not a game.
As we watch each year’s seasons turn,
My torch for you will ever burn.
No regrets giving you my name.
You always will my soul inspire,
Forever be my one desire--
My first and last and only flame.

Short Simile poem by Zachary Schlegel| Details | |

Violet Light

Sinking through wispy clouds
On wings of amethyst 
I design the sky
Refracting light to royal poise
Essence of purple blankets the sky

I take perch in a crystal prism
Resting on the end of the spectrum 
Eminent land 
No salacious rumors to be discerned 
Void of transgressions

Here, I shall make stead
Periodically withdrawing to illuminate mortal sky
My grandeur, I shall share to all

Simile of a Smile

The whistling winds whip her words away,
            the simile of a smile on her lips
                         fades and is lost in the deepening dusk.


                         there on the moist, soft sand her footprints melt
                                       with the slow, oncoming tide at his feet,
                                                    he's got nothing to say to make her stay.

Short Simile poem by Andy Craig| Details | |

Distance

 To have friends across
 an ocean, to feel the love
 like they're right next to
 you. Every day I feel the
 devotion. We have never
 met face to face, yet I can
 picture a smiling face, I can
 can feel the warm embrace.
 Heartfelt emotion drawn
 from our spirits, love shines
 from within us. On our journey
 we go, put trust in our paths.
 Have faith in its flow. One day
 we shall meet and then we will
 know.

RELIGION

Asphyxiated by curled hands.
Punishment for tainted moon,
it has floated down to
darker side of continence.

You push the body in wall,
Coal burns in the eyes.
The shadow at last, leaves the body.

The high priest, goes for the copyright
and nerves explode in the books for
annular bulge of pride.

A simile was needed for a grain of sand
by cutting your wrists
and pouring the blood on the knives.

Short Simile poem by bulinya martins| Details | |

Girls are like pianos in deed and simile

Girls are like pianos in deed and simile
When well tuned they giggle and smile
When annoyed they prop and empathize
When spoiled they demand and emphasize
He who can make a girl laugh can make her upright
Then they grow glassy and fabulously bright
They become wily strong and pretty useful
Being good they go to heaven very beautiful
The saddest thing a girl can is to dump down herself
And then be a soaked wet coat hanging on the shelf

The Color Missing

The Color Missing
Red, black, and blue are the colors of our work pens. Red is the color of the blood we spill on other people’s mistakes.  Blue is the color of the songs we sing on tax forms or pay stubs- every page has a secret melody. Black is the color of the streets we fear most. Black is the color of our signature of approval. Black is the color of our death.

‘But what about the Green pens?’ I ask. They say ‘the ink is too hard to see.’


Short Simile poem by Rosy Love| Details | |

Flowers

Like drops of paint on a painter’s easel
Resting quietly, patiently among others
To gently decorate the canvas;

Like soft silk folds of a lady’s dress
Pooling out, freshly washed,
With a hint of sweet perfume;

Like a cluster of warm, new colors
Gathered in the glowing sunrise,
Bringing the fragrance of a brand new day;

Like velvety scraps of a doll maker’s cloth
Like the sweet soft blush on children’s cheeks 
Like the smile of sunshine welcoming spring

Summertime bliss

Summer fun in the glorious sunshine,
high spirits and glowing smiles.
Everything seems worth while. With
warm embrace upon you're face.

Summer is in full bloom, mother nature
she is  exquisitely bliss in all colours of
flowers and upon butterflies wings and
many more marvellous things.

An uplifting feeling from an energising 
sun, luminous green hills and a stunning
blue sky. Every colour so bold and brilliant.
This wondrous world is  truly one in a million.

MY COMET GIRL

.



She's back just like a comet,
a winding gold dust of love
tailing her since we last met.

Cerise lips stretch soft, slow.
A simile of her smile glows.
Her bubbling gladness show.

Her face, exuberant, vivid.
Pearly teeth, pinkish gums,
she's playful, confident, fervid.

The core of what matters
shines in her inner goodness,
touching the good in others.

Her eyes laugh with regret.
To me she grins her goodbye.
in a blink, she's gone, my comet!

Mouldy Inquiry

What suggestive simile has mould,
Its choice of residence could not be sweeter planned;
Such a perfect timed embrace,
Embedded in the papers flattering embroidery -
So fitting of analogy.
Growing down the wall each day,
A sickly, ill debauchery; 
but yet, it still amazes me.
How it painted such a life-like portrait,
How deliberate it seems to be.
So what of it’s reflective study
Should I now consider?
What of your depiction
Mould -
What are you trying to tell me?

'Being bipolar is like a rose'

Being bipolar
is like a rose born missing
some of its petals,--
its color is more vibrant
than all the other roses'!

It may never be
part of a "perfect" bouquet,--
but its rich pigment
can be a precious paint for
Da Vinci's "Mona Lisa."

Alas, it may not
attract the most "honeybees"
in the wilds of life,--
but its petals can be crushed
to make the finest perfumes.

Being bipolar
is like a rose born missing
some of its petals,--
its bouquet is more fragrant
than all the other roses'!

Finding God

In life, some would say
I lacked no good thing,
I was loved and healthy,
Young and nice-looking.

Yet my soul was parched,
It was cracked, dry dirt,
A candle with no spark,
An eclipse of the earth.

Then a voice caused me to kneel,
An unseen tongue let loose,
"God is real and
the Bible is truth."

Lots has happened since 
God took me by the hand
But I still remember when
My faith in God began.

(A non-fiction poem written for Gail Angel Doyle's "Finding God" contest.)

Short Simile poem by Ken Nwadiogbu| Details | |

I am ME

The only one of my kind
The undisputed champion
I'm the one you need find
If you're not gazing  for presumption

I'm the megaphone of my world
The gateway  to success
The daredevil of love
The pioneer of  my Highness

The panoramic view of paradise
Exalted the beauty of black
A paradigm of high class
Dominate like a spark

I am the synecdoche of mighty
The metaphor of wonder
The personification of Christianity
And simile of thunder

I am BEAUTIFUL
I am Kenechukwu Nwadiogbu A.K.A Kbillion
