Premium membership would be great, but I can't afford things, so yeah.

Even one point helps, I guess!

It is four AM

I'm awake again

Or as awake as I can be

you see

I am not as I was

Or as we were

You, I, and her


At four AM

I still begin

To wander off, begin to dream

You seemed

To think little of us

We who still write

And say we fight


Next 4 AM

I'll think again

About all of the memories I made

You stayed

Such a brief time while she

Enamored me

Now I am strong.

You were wrong.
I'm dreaming again.
I hate you

I wish I were dead


I'm hungry.

I've never wanted to drink.

I don't write.

I'm better than this.

I'll miss you.

I enjoyed high school.

I have faith.

I'm not racist.

I'm not sexist.

I'm not homophobic.

I'm not biased against any religions.

I don't believe in God.

I believe in God.

I believe you.

I don't care about the drugs you're on.

I'd cross the country to save you.

I'd drive hours to save you.

I'd lift a finger to save you.

I like your music.

I respect you.

I've got your back.

I never want to see you again.


I'm glad I'm still alive

I love you
Lies I've Told
Exactly what it says on the tin. A list poem.
Take a bow and take a stand since we are not what we had planned
We were told to only dream and we would have our everything
But dreams have faded with our youth and we're the slaves of fastfood booths
So do we stand to tear it down and destroy every gilden crown
Or are we left alone to fade for bitterness to hold our days?

Happiness was just a thing that sold us papers and diamond rings
The icons we grew up adored are hollowed, emptied by de jure
They dealt us broken future lands and make us pay retirement plans
Are we to be the slaves of yore to serve the childer of wealth before?
Can we not still deny the fate that keeps our debt at endless rate?

How can we owe them a dime while promised much in jingle rhyme?
This Generation's Decision
Poem of the day for september 27th 2014
I never saw the sea

as a friend in chivalry

Or a dreamy place to be

Or a place to visit free


The ocean is, to me

The one true tyranny

For the land bows to our might

But the ocean's not our right


The sea is vast and fast and wide

And not a thing to be denied

It cares not for the lives of men

We treat it as an eggless hen


But one day the swells will rise

And men will reach a grim demise

For daring to think they restrained

That which will rise and kill and maim
The Sea
Poem of the day for september 26th 2014
Does that heart pump fear and hate?
Can you still show them all you're brave?
Are you a wounded fighter, then?
Or a leaking broken tin?

Use a metaphor like that rapper you dig
But top-tier wordplay doesn't make you big
Not like people care, it's something else
Timing? Luck? What puts platinums on a shelf?

Maybe you should take a nap, leave that for someone else
half awake philosophy
poem of the day september 25th 2014


Owari999's Profile Picture
James Knoll
Artist | Hobbyist | Literature
United States
Operating System: Windows vista (Gross.)
Open office for prose, Notepad for poetry.

I make words. Not visual art.
In honor of the late Robin Williams, I have decided to write and post a poem a day until I no longer can. Because life gets busy sometimes, I have made the caveat that I have up to a week of leeway before it ends (I.E. I can complete and post up to 7 days' at a time.)

None of the poems can be poems I have written prior.

The project started with "Robin Williams died".
