Until years pass.

But only for awhile
Or below
How does desolation
Sink in

Writing is vanity,
except in the bathroom,
where vanity lies beneath,
and is replaced up top
by a truth-telling device
called a mirror.

Naive, blind to limitations and innocently gullible,
But for equality's sake everybody got one.

Your emerald eyes

your emerald eyes
still today mysterious,
sea-green vanity
carelessly ignores my ship
to anchor there just for once.

Feed from the same

Short Vanity poem by Steve Eng| Details | |


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 | |


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.

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

The Trade-in

my old sports car’s
fun, eye-catching plates

tossed in the trunk of
my new sedan

part of my joy
unrenewed. . . . like

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.

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

The intimate structure of becoming

I get out in the street and 
in this this strong light
I can see the muscles of the men
looks like their intoxication
just like me 
always with something new
something else
near to one day.

Short Vanity poem by Liza Britton| Details | |


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.

Laser Lover

Bedroom barriers


Vintage idolatry

Pining protoplasms



Nimble fusion peaks

Passion howls

Velvet vanity

In unison we touch

Multilateral we twine

A fluorescent collage


Short Vanity poem by Abdulhafeez Oyewole| Details | |


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 !
