The value of  Vanity’s this;
It offers bliss
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,
I’d plum for insanity.

Dead carcasses are buried
Loved ones mourn

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 Kaitlyn Avery| Details | |

Don't

Don’t
Forget the message
Dates hide
On them
Vanity waits
We run
But only for awhile
Above
Or below
How does desolation
Sink in

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 Elizabeth-Dea Shanta| Details | |

Ego

Our ego is the culprit of all human misery.
Naive, blind to limitations and innocently gullible,
But for equality's sake everybody got one.

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--

Your emerald eyes


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

Vanity clouding her perception

Beauty Within

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

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.

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 car’s
fun, eye-catching plates

tossed in the trunk of
my new sedan

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

 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

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.... re "Salts of Insanity" Russell Sivey Don

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
façade’s
hidden
reality,

pretext
screams
loudly
beyond
rescue,

while
boastful
vanity
disguises
conceit,

guiding
deceit’s
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.
