Lightning wretchedly dances,

Thunders echoed and resound...

Or in some type

At a cliff, hanging,

My grip starts going unwind,

A square foundation
A picketed white fence guarded

Of the heated blood glowing

Reflections from River Nile

Acting

My notion at its most masochistic

The crowd, laughs, quite the kick.

The art is my greatest lore.

It's the only life I'd ever pick.

Nostalgia


Allow me another moment,
A moment in your nostalgia,
The moment that stretches to eternity.

Allow me another mile,
A mile by your side,
The mile that transcends the dead-end.

A POSITIVE POEM

Women who have style
attract with their fine attire,
smiles improve their looks.

Short Symbolism 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.


Short Symbolism poem by Ezra cook| Details |

Solemn's sin

As i sit here above the world

as i look at you

My thoughts are filled with solemn's sin

but i have no desire  to pick you my flower

ill just sit right here watching

you bloom 


Short Symbolism poem by Tobi Osunkoya| Details |

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 ?
