Literature
Out there somewhere
Cold hands
Out in the open
Facing the storm
Without a care
Walking forward
Nowhere to go
Feeling the rain
Soaking my heart

Literature
Though in distance
So far
So close
Images in my mind
In my heart
A person I care about
Bringing pleasant thoughts
Deep desires
To my soul

Literature
Save me
Take me
Save me
From myself
Love me
Feel me
Deep within
Look at me
And I'll look at you
At the Universe I see
In your eyes
As we ride in the storm
Rain, wind and thunder
Our dear friends
Our guardians

Oceans
An ocean outside
An ocean inside
Both deep and vast
Both full of mystery

Reason
Give me a reason
A reason to break
A reason to build
A reason to hate
A reason to love
A reason to die
A reason to live

Just us
Bright moonlight
Dark skies
Hand in hand
We go forward
Disappearing
Into the night

Literature
Re-ignite
I can't handle the desire
It hurts and haunts me
Thoughts of sensuality
Creep into my mind
The dark void that is my soul
Turning much brighter at that time
A silly smile appearing
For a glimpse of happiness
How can a single person
Bring such strong emotions to the surface?
What is this feeling
And why is it so strange to me?
Why is it so pleasant?

Literature
Growing relationship
One moment
One glance
A few words
It starts like that
Two very different people connecting
Becoming more than strangers
More than aquaintances
Close friends
Sharing a bond
Sharing a life
Making silly questions
And inside jokes
To cheer each other up
Care and curiosity motivating them
To keep talking
To be spontaneous
Even to flirt at times
With no consequences
Other than becoming even closer

No life
About
A third
Of my
Life
Gone by
And I've met
All my
Friends
Through
A screen

Literature
Conflict

Who holds the key

To my heart today?
I’m never sure
Where life’s heading-
Is empowerment more
Important than love?
I don’t think so-
Sometimes it feels
As if I’m powerless
To fight my feelings-
Why is life such
A giant combat zone?

Literature
Mental Torture
Let's visit awhile in this mental hell,
our collective myths we tell ourselves to avoid the nightmare,
well,
they're hitting another dry spell,
here comes the monsoon,
I'll see you soon in our world,
on all fours,
slowly turning the wretched keys to all these attic doors,
the spin,
I crawl within,
the hurricane of you,
and I grip to my anguish harder,
hoping the days go faster,
till the next time around,
to start the wheel of life again,
to yet again play in our cherished mental disaster,
here there is no servant nor master,
there is only harder and faster.

Literature
Intertwined
The comfort I find in you is
Vast in my ocean of emotion-
I find you meeting my eyes
As we touch in our minds-
The comfort appears once more
As you bury me in your arms
Lest I die from the longing-
Unite your body with mine
Entangled in with lust forever-

Literature
First Light
It begins here. When we are in the line-up, and you look at me. I see the way your eyes hold color captive, create an indelible prism of blue. Would sooner shatter any opponent before they could get in a word.
You are not like your parents. Or the flashes I’ve seen of them.
Your eyes pass over me.
I am a foreigner to dodgeball, but you—you are in your element. A ball nearly pummels me in the face, but it is not your doing.
That year, you quest after someone else, wrap your mind around another. I etch your name into cardboard, then quickly scratch it out.
You get open-heart surgery one summer and are out of commission for weeks. You come back, impervious as ever, and ready to tackle the world.
And then it ends.
We look to others.
(It’s fair to say you never really looked at me, but for the sake of a story, I take liberty with my narration.)
Our sails expand to full volume to depart for broader, deeper waters. It is abrupt, like a switchblade, how quickly the geography

Pieces
“I tell you, Jay, it was a cross between corned beef and head cheese—the way it looked all mish-mashed with little maggoty specks.”
“Did you barf?”
“Nah, I’ve got a stomach of steel. You’re talking to a man whose mother made him scarf down every piece of meat, innards, and skin, no matter the gristle or the grime. I’ve got a strong jaw cause of that woman.”
“Yeah, and an even bigger mouth. Did she make you eat human, too?”
“Course not! We might be from old stock, but we ain’t barbarians.”
“That body hadta been a disturbing sight, though, huh? Her head split open like that.”
“How’d you know it was a woman?”
“Larry told me. The whole town’s talking about it. Do they know who she was?”
“Mighta been a drifter or a runaway just passing through. She wasn’t that far from the road. Police are asking around.”
“Poor girl. I bet her pare

Become

My mind curls around

Thoughts of you tinted
With deep and dark lust-
Moreover, I invite you
To come and play my
Game as our passion rises-
It’s a complex game
Played just between us
No one has to understand
The way we interact together-
Sometimes I scarcely can
Recognize who we used to be
I just am absorbed in
Who we have become now-

Dreams

Pleasant dreams of free

Falling through the air-
Coming back down as i
Fall lightly to the clouds
Filled with rain- ready to
Burst- showering me down
To water on the earth-
It feels like growing as
I lie on the grassy ground-
Moisture surrounding me-
As my dream is now found

Wonderful. Suicide is a rather common subject among us poets but you managed to write about it in an original and fresh way. The first ...

Diogo
Portugal
Just an invisible man, writing his thoughts and fighting a battle in vain aganist life itself. Lost friends, broken hearts, bullying, a (relatively) messed up family life and overall anti-social tendencies led me to that. And love is a strange concept to me... At least DeviantArt is both an escape and a way to connect to others. Where would I be without it?...

Anyway, enjoy my poems, pictures and all the other stuff. I must warn you, most of my poetry tends to be quite dark and sometimes depressing. I do some photography too.

One more thing: there's no need to thank me for every fave, llama or whatever, OK?

Oh, and I don't mind poetry requests. For free. Come on, inspire me :)

Cold hands

Facing the storm

Walking forward
Nowhere to go
Feeling the rain

Out there somewhere
The sensual and emotional poems are nice and all but I missed the dark ones. So here's one.

So far
So close
Images in my mind
In my heart
A person I care about
Bringing pleasant thoughts
Deep desires
To my soul
Take me
Save me
From myself
Love me
Feel me
Deep within
Look at me
And I'll look at you
At the Universe I see
In your eyes
As we ride in the storm
Rain, wind and thunder
Our dear friends
Our guardians
An ocean outside
An ocean inside
Both deep and vast
Both full of mystery
I have a grand total of two things to say.

1. I wish a merry Christmas to everyone here, friend, aquaintance or stranger :)

2. I've been kinda uninspired letely. Except for that longer poem I shared recently, I haven't been able to write much. So if you have ideas or suggestions for poems, feel free to share. An image, a sentence, even a word might spark the inspiration here.

Have a good day :bow:

Over and out.
