I'm going to use this as a sort of 'Archive' for some story ideas and old poems so if you like semi-deep poems that have a meaning but kinda really don't then i'm your gal.

Tree of Failure
Do you think that the trees
Know they die?
That as each leaf falls,
Exposing the branches to the harsh cold,
That the tree who once grew them,
Desperately tries to hold on?
Perhaps they fight,
Kicking up the wind,
In hopes that their leaves come back to them.
Perhaps, after their first Winter,
The trees understand their plight?
Perhaps the trees
Are like me.
The leaves,
My hopes,
And the harsh, harsh winters,
Are my failures.
I grasp, desperately as they fall away,
Exposing my soul to the cold
Outside.
The first one is hard,
And I wish to give in, and let my leaves fly.
But the second one is better.
I understand, and I learn,
That it will be okay to cry.
I can let my leaves go,
For they will grow back stronger
In spring.

Endless Stare
It sits, perched on the tree.
Staring, indefinitely.
Is it a judging stare,
Or a knowing gaze?
It’s eyes
Like stars.
Unblinking, Unchanging
Forever there.
The slightest sound, of a call in the distance.
It cries out,
I can try to hide it.
Hide it’s gaze,
It’s ever looming presence.
But I know for certain,
That I cannot hide from the truth.
It follows me, daring me to express it.
Like a raven follows a man,
Set to die.
Every glance behind my shoulder,
It sits there, it’s beady eyes glaring into mine.
It knows, as I know,
I cannot hide it forever.

Dear Hanahaki
Your petals edges,
They cut like knives.
The gentle touch of her hand
Her blossoming laughter.
The pressure in my chest,
The petals spill forth.
The softest hue of pink,
They spill from my mouth
Like I am a sink.
It hurts yet I dare not speak,
Her heart beats for another.
I want her to be happy,
To be joyous and bright.
Yet I cannot stand it.
Her skin brushes against mine,
Brief and accidental,
Yet it makes it all the worse.
I smile, my mouth full of petals.
Dear Hanahaki,
Why do you plague me so?
The feelings are one-sided,
And the more I realize,
The more the petals flow.
Your sweet petal edges,
They cut like knives
As they spill from my mouth.

Smile
It's empty.
Blank.
I'm staring at something with no meaning
No hopes and no dreams.
It's a mass of words
of shadows,
of useless phrases
in useless tongues.
It smiles.
My hand,
Against the cold glass.
It smiles.
I cry out,
Why can't you change?
Why can't you become who you want?
It smiles.
I rest my forehead,
Against the cold glass.
And it smiles.
So I smile, too.

Background
I watch,
behind frosted glass.
She'll learn, right?
I'm watching with baited breath,
hoping.
yearning.
It'll be a Happy Ever After.
My hands slam against the window.
I can look in.
She can't look out.
She'll see me. Eventually.

Cracking, Cracking-
It's gone.
The glass that hid me from it all,
I'm free.
Free to express myself,
Free to tell her that I-

Right through me.
She sees
right through me.
I'm nothing more than a ghost.
Her hand reaches out,
And I go to meet it.
She's not reaching for me.
Her hand plunges through my chest,
Cold
Unforgiving.
It connects with someone I don't know,
Someone else.
She'll learn, Right?
I drop to my knees.
Was it worth it?
Breaking my glass,
the only thing shielding my vulnerable soul.
I cry out, reaching,
grasping,
hoping for something that will never be real.
It'll be a Happy Ever After.

I watch from a distance.
My soul bearing the scars.
A passing glance,
A sad smile.
She's the background character of one story,
but the center of mine,
I cannot bear to watch.
Her heart beats in tune with his.
Not mine,
Never
Mine.
She'll see me. Eventually.
No, she won't.
I'm just a Background character,
for a story that was never meant for me.

Jfc, these are incredible! I have very few freeverse poets I actively follow, and you've just become one of them. I tend to notice a lot of poets that commit to that form just write flashy sentences and odd metric pacing to make it feel... slam or beatnicky, I guess, but the way you use rhythm to invoke feeling and control the pace feels totally intuitive. I love you imagery, and you manage to explore emotionally complex themes without seeming tacky or edgy.
Alone she drifts from ancient mists
Nary a candle, nary a wish
But in the wont of wandering paths
Through wooded knolls, and windworn crags
She seeks a face she thought as friend
But now -- she thinks as judgement's end

Or Do They?
Empty.
Soft pattering,
of water on a cellar floor.
Tick. Tick.
A clock strikes in the distance,
Signalling something to come.
Or is it signalling for something to leave?
I'll never know.
Footsteps in the distance.
Laughter,
hearty and joyous.
I haven't heard it in forever.
My hands wrap around the door frame.
How did I get here?
Where is here?
I do not care.
Wisps of gold
dance around me,
enticing me to follow.
And I do.
I grab desperately at the fleeting wisps,
Are they dreams?
Could they be hopes or ideas?
I'll never know.
For now they are gone, and I'm left with nothing.
Dreams flit about me,
taunting me.
You'll never follow me.
They laugh.
You are too afraid.
And they are right.
I cannot chase them,
for they are only dreams.
And dreams-
Well,
Dreams never come true.
