In front of the looking-glass

Until years pass.

Please tell me why I dye my hair,
And get red stuff everywhere.

Some people call it vanity,
Id plum for insanity.

Dead carcasses are buried

Your life on earth is no more
Farewell, friend

Unwanted Ads

Ego between stints -

narcissistic derelicts

scope the classifieds.

Vanity cracks masked mirrors -

Arrogance need not apply.

Cinqku seq-Embers

Upon

vanity

of vanities-

fragile egos will ride

the wind

clasping

brief moments

ephemeral-

that die in tomorrow's

ashes




Short Vanity poem by Joshua Lacey| Details |

Negative Focusing?

Did God damn me?

Am I crazy?

Too often comes the fear

Which I will not hold dear!

Reality and Sanity

Hope they aren't but vanity!


Short Vanity poem by Aron Jacob| Details |

Pith II

Writing is vanity,

except in the bathroom,

where vanity lies beneath,

and is replaced up top

by a truth-telling device

called a mirror.


Short Vanity poem by Joshua Lacey| Details |

Growing Pains

Wha'ts wrong with Mom - then me?

Distorted reality

Is everything just vanity?

About to lose sanity!

Focus on the cross

He will heal loss!


Short Vanity poem by Skyy Allen| Details |

leave me be

Leave me be, leave me be--



Why can't you see?



Depravity taints my sanity--



Vanity corrupts our fantasy--



Of a life without strife--




Short Vanity poem by kash poet| Details |

Your emerald eyes





your emerald eyes

still today mysterious,

sea-green vanity

carelessly ignores my ship

to anchor there just for once.

Altering her worldly reflection

Vanity clouding her perception

Sarah bathes in self deception

Beauty Within

    I can see
a beautiful soul
 lies within me.
    Therefore,
    no mirror
   can reflect
who I really am.

Envy


Flowering empathy
...Blooms
Run my beautiful one, 
Run!

With scissors

Nudist Colony from Space

An androgynous 
People. 

Vanity
Evaporated.

Suckling babes and
Adonis no longer
Feed from the same
Orgasm. 

I exhale, 
Feeling
Smooth and 
Whole. 

Extraterrestrial.


Short Vanity poem by Steve Eng| Details |

Diagnosis





Insanity

Is vanity,

The narcissistic cry

Of I, I, I, I, I, I, I.



And happiness

Consists of less

Analysis, and more of trust

In Him Who fashioned us from dust.

Short Vanity poem by Nathan Karczewski| Details |

Lavender

Lost in your eyes,

A pleasant suprise.

Vanity at it's best.

Enticing all of the rest.

No one will ever

Do what I do, so clever.

End the day with a kiss.

Rue the days we miss.


Short Vanity poem by Adeleke Adeite| Details |

Den of dreams



I wondered! Why wisdom wastes away

In the valley of vanity, void and voiceless.

I often pondered on how poor predators play

Away with the lives of the wealthy and worthless 




Short Vanity poem by Andrea Dietrich| Details |

The Trade-in

my old sports cars
fun, eye-catching plates

tossed in the trunk of
my new sedan

part of my joy
unrenewed. . . . like
those vanity plates


For  Joann Grisetti's
 Shanzi Poetry Contest


Short Vanity poem by Leo Larry Amadore| Details |

The Soup

Unconfounded by a doltish lack
of general public adoration,
our poetry we'll offer here --
and bend each other's hungry ears
in supportive, negotiated pacts
of (mostly) mutual appreciation.


Short Vanity poem by DON JOHNSON| Details |

how deep

<center><b>how deep the cut,
the pain is but,
camoflague for the sanity,
be strong and just,
don't look nonplussed,
as it bruises of the vanity....

Short Vanity poem by Samir Georges| Details |

Cherish your pockets

Crimson king of freedom

Wise men, fill your coffers with gold

Decorate your crucifixion with diamonds

The sight of sacrifice ordained with sin

Vanity raging rampant

Short Vanity poem by Liza Britton| Details |

frustrations

My valiant efforts are pushed to vanity

When the expression of love and desire are forced to the surface,

I cannot begin to explain what I want from him

And he will never understand my frustrations.


Short Vanity poem by Eugene Harvey| Details |

Broken

living

between

façades

hidden

reality,



pretext

screams

loudly

beyond

rescue,



while

boastful

vanity

disguises

conceit,



guiding

deceits

amazing

restless

finale.

Short Vanity poem by Glenn McCrary| Details |

Laser Lover

Bedroom barriers

Radiate

Vintage idolatry


Pining protoplasms

Levitate

Wizardry


Nimble fusion peaks

Passion howls

Velvet vanity



In unison we touch

Multilateral we twine

A fluorescent collage

Lasers


Short Vanity poem by Abdulhafeez Oyewole| Details |

Vanity

Vanity Upon Vanity

Morning arrives...
Evening takes over
Can't the day stops changing?

Mother born you...
You gave birth to us
Where are your ancestors?

Graveyard here calls...
Your family now run
Why do they stop to love?


Short Vanity poem by Ovidiu Bocsa| Details |

Chastushka with balalaika and nagaika

Sweet  horizon ,don`t lock , don`t taste the pale bitter moon !

I`ll whip my Fancy`s Fairy with your whip-nagaika:

Incense times of vanity unscrewing a camphor afternoon. ..

Let`s live together in poem,with  our balalaika !


Short Vanity poem by Judith Angell Meyer| Details |

ABC's



Any bold cloud dancing 

enjoys flirting gallantly,

hoisting; inspiring; jousting;

knowing laughter makes nice orchestrations

particularly quenching raw spirits

teaching unabashed vanity



While Xylophones yammer zanily.


Short Vanity poem by inya richard| Details |

ALL'S VANITY

Behold we toiled

Soiling our skins

expending our strength

Breaking our bones

Sweating like covers of hot pots

Toiling, soiling, expending,breaking and sweating

Yet all was vanity and yet would be

Where God toils not with us


Short Vanity poem by Ammy Avocet| Details |

Dripping

Remember that time
you bought a gallon
of cherry juice--

And didn't
have the decency
to pour it into
a cup

Of course-- it fell

From the hand less bodies
reaching

-- amiss

I couldn't help but notice..
all the cracks it filled. 


Short Vanity poem by Rachel St.Cross| Details |

Late Last Night

Squeezing gently her breast, afore the vanity
Arousing their nipples; soft moist kisses; She
Sitting atop perfumed in Violet's satin sheets
White lace stockings; Chanel No. 5 sixty-nine
Bows black silk traces; Carmine, lipstick sighs.


Short Vanity poem by Abdulhafeez Oyewole| Details |

FANCY

...Formidable treat he stress
At the early hour of this day.
No pain, no gain- All is still well.
Centenary dream is a luxury few can reach.
Yours truly, let your fate decide.

Short Vanity poem by jan oskar hansen| Details |

wind turbines

Wind Turbines. 

I see a bank palace 
lit up like a planet of excesses, 
the glory of the powerful.
I also see a landscape 
littered by a thousand wind turbines 
wasted by its wonder and peace
to keep the palace in
the vanity of power  


Short Vanity poem by Hope Ballard| Details |

Never Die

Pain in my heart,

Vanity turned into art,

A flasch of light before my eyes,

But, i will not die

Because i never want to say goodbye.

Tears fill my eyes

As your hand drifts to mine,

You say those words 

That will never mean goodbye.


Short Vanity poem by Anthony Slausen| Details |

to the streets

people break things,

then toss them to the streets

things once loved-now abused

were held in high esteem

chairs and lamps

a vanity

a spotted rug

chipped bowl

of insanity

yo yo hearts on a yellowed string

 all tossed to the streets


Short Vanity poem by Dawn Gordon| Details |

Vanity

block block block

only popular ones searched for 

most of them written by a vanity hog

with 25 accounts

NO LIFE

block block block

just a poet robber to have so many disgusting accounts

fake

jamming up the entire section

NO LIFE






Short Vanity poem by Don Schaeffer| Details |

Honors




I get up on the stage
do my act.
The rest is 
up to the audience.

When I die
I will face the Judge
salute and say the lines
Don Schaeffer reporting as ordered
Sir. The General will turn
in an abbreviated answer to my salute
and dismiss me.
