I knew better
I put myself in this position
Just when I think I'm winning
I start losing
This game called love
It's so confusing
A vicious cycle with no conscience
No remorse, I made my choice
I sacrificed my heart
Was torn apart by feelings I let loose
It's a noose...
would you hold me tight?
would you kiss me softly?
and tell me you love me?
if we only have right now,
will you slowly take away my pain?
would you show me all I needed to see?
would you make me happy?
A kiss was never stolen
Which turned my burned heart blue
But in the midnight hour
When it's all said and done
Better we had each other
And created so much fun
You were part of my universe
But now you're just dust
The pieces of the alleyway
The old forgotten lust
I spend every day awaiting the pain to go away.
This came just out of NOWHERE in my mind. No idea why. Was just going to post to "I am not creative" and that pops out.
It's how I feel about myself. I am completely plain in every way. My appearance is plain, I have no skills...
I stand upon the epicenter of the world
I am at ultimate peace and harmony with myself
I stand where my body and spirit
Are at one with the universe and the cosmos
I gaze upwards to see a celestial
Divine of ambiance within the clouds
The clouds unveil...
When you look into someone's eyes, you can see everything.
You see emotions and their journey.
Their heartbreaks and their fears.
Their memories, maybe even eternity.
Now, look into my eyes,
And tell me what you see.
Can you see the darkness,
That lives deep within me?
i know i might just light this joint just for the touch , just for the rush
you dont even know the half of it , mad ruckess
tangled brain , im feeling like a hand puppet
cause she dont know im alone , im on my own
comatose , im feeling sick but im still posted up at...
knows that you are so beautiful
I held you too close to me, close enough to make me want to leave I still feel scars from me that you may not see
I wish we could fix what was broke
So instead of sending broken flowers I'll send you roses
Music: The Greatest... Cat Power
Feel, breathe, live,
Heart beat faster,
Pulse, heat, softness and hardness,
Minds and thoughts and desire.
Leave the rest at the door,
Tonight we are going to be on the floor,
Feet first then torsos,
Entwined in meaningful...
I'm sick, and it's a pretty little illness
A prefrontal bacteria that eats away my willingness
To live within the social parenthesis
I'm twisted, sick from this political annilingus.
The jacket that I'm wearing will define my disorder
I'm due to see a professional Visceral...
She cries each night,Never does she show her pain,Always hiding her face,How long can she stay strong?How many more days must she play along,Raw emotion in her eyes,Fear crawling up her spine as she wipes the tears,Looking down at her scars,Looking at her reflection as she hides...
I thought it was me
I was only five
Go to sleep to gunfire
Police never come
Crack ho's never tire
And I know I'm done
My uncle runs guns
My momma's doin time
I have to mule drugs
And I am only nine
They say I can choose
The future is mine
What do I have to do
Well here goes let me know what you think.
Every night brings a new day
Every moment brings a new memory
Every breath brings life
And every lesson learned should be remembered
Hills will come in my path
But it's up to me on how to get past it
Whether it be the long way or the...
path I take
Goes with me too
I can work alone
And think it is fun
To start a task
And see it done
I can sleep alone
For once I'm there
My dreams will take
I can stand alone
And face the fight
I will not run
If I know I'm right
But love alone
I can not do
! thanks so much for supporting who i am and giving me so much happiness :) i'll let him remain anonymous....
this cloud of dark emotions hung over me
and cold rain blocked the happiness i couldn't see
but then like the rays of the sun, you shone through
You are lost
In faded colours of Summer's smile
The world we had now locks me out
I tear and strain in desperate style
You drift away, I scream and shout
My blood dries in the vein
True love just means real pain.
You are lost
Until moonbeams send you from the skies
the broken and shattered pieces of me,
Finally beginning to heal,
Will I need you in the end?
If by some ill fated design,
You show your face again,
Will it cause me pain,
Or will I be perfectly fine?
if your thought has begun to fade,
if I can look at you as a stranger,
deleting things )
Looking out my window, something lately I often do
Just passing time and drinking beer and feeling very blue
Feeling like a lonely voyeur, as the day creeps by so very slow
Like the jet planes high up in the clouds, people quickly come and go
I watch the...
although i'm gone. Just know i'm in a better place now. Promise me won't cry even though you miss me deeply. I know you wish i was still there with you. Everytime the rain pours down it's my tears pouring over you letting you know i miss you. When the sunshines i want to to...
Broken pieces, shattered all around
We heard the sound, when it all hit the ground
Torn pages, in the book of my life
In the pain and strife, seems like a losing fight
Empty spaces, covered in clutter
My heart skips paces, and my words come in stutters
I see the places, where the...
I have let the light go,But not let the dark in,The pain from withing spreading my fears,You and I,Standing here alone,We are like each other,The pain consuming me,This world is nothing but a dream,A peace of a shattered memory,Here we go,The secrets we never shared,Each time we...
(Barvo's note - I don't actually write poems. I have no urge and don't read it for pleasure. I wound up in a writing class taught by a poet, so had to write several poems. When I can't do something well, I hide behind humour. Behold the result!)
Ode to a Lost Sock
so beautiful yet so cruel, so peaceful but full of raging wars. Every smile is led by a frown. In the darkness I see it. I see the peace. But when night turns to day. I’m just another person born upon a grave. Are we not all bid a due with the warm welcome of hello when we...
smoothing the breeze into a sleepy lover’s caress
encumbering the wispy strands through which limbs pass
until all is slow and gauzy like a dream.
This silken air was born in buzzing twilight
Gently protecting all who ventured into it in the dark
blunting the edges of a sharp...
begin each day;
We can only hope the path we found
Is the one where we should stay.
You can’t always judge the path,
Simply by its looks.
And you can never gain wisdom,
Just by what you read in books.
So be grateful for experience,
Whether good or bad.
For we can learn...
My heart is as deep as the Hudson River. Its fresh with unpredictable currents. Once a murky barren zone is now the object of a mid summers swim.
My mind is a twisted Christmas peppermint stick. Its stale and forgotten in your grandmothers garage, along with...
On the platform I watched with fascination the lovers at the station
Lost in tender admiration
I had to turn my gaze away.
For the first time in a long time I missed your smile today.
Living life at a pace, agents to please, speeches to make and deadlines to keep.
The only time...
As I lay back down to sleep
to dream of nature's virtue, sweet
to dream of her within my mind,
to dream of once upon a time
to dream the dream of
happy ever afters
to dream once more
of nature's laughter
to know it teases,
and in it's recourse
telling yourself its for the best,
and that to speak to me,
could end so much.
I wonder if you think of me,
and ask what happened,
if I am still the one you love,
or if I am just someone in the background
as a tribute
to the man that was my father as well as many
other father’s like him. However many do not
have that positive role model so I had to write something
for them as well. Here goes.
My father stood on a street corner,
Selling crack and meth.
He drank most days...
from the park I fed pigeons at every morning.
I was too emotionally attached to things that leave with the seasons.
They say my rain clouds over-watered the plants and killed them.
More time in bed, I thought, but I'm always looking for a reason.
So I gave my bread money to the...
home. Knowing what will come if he makes contact. Yet he must see her talk to her, feel her. His heart heavy as he watches her from the shadows. He slips in selfishly only to disappear again. Only because he knows the destructive world he lives in and the creatures within it. He...
It never rightfully belonged to me
But I wanted it nonetheless,
So when you were distracted and couldn’t see
I took it, I confess.
I thought that it might take a while
For you to realize your mistake,
And though I felt guilty in my guile
I held it close, for love’s sake...
but you don't know that I'm wise. If you ever listened to me, you'd see through my eyes. If you didn't judge my history, I wouldn't have to be in disguise. If you let me finish my sentence, you would see that this monster has a beautiful heart inside." -Beautiful Monster...
usually a writer but I kind of like this... I see this kind of stuff every day. I've been rapping these as lyrics but works as a poem too... I think. Lol
"Guys say your either a tease or a sleeze There's no in between but they go **** every girl that they see
I planted this seed...
watered it with my blood...
tried my best to shine...
my inner light upon it...
so it might prosper...
but as it broke through the soil...
I knew it was fragile...
maybe I sheltered it too much...
perhaps I didn't give it...
as much as I...
Knowing that no one understands him. All they see is the guardian of. the world. Only calling him or even looking his way when they're in distress and needing something. When they don't know don't even think twice to as to ask him how he feels or what he needs. Little do they...
flooded with mistakes
Trying to run
Trying to escape
The crippling fear of the unknown
Keeps her from moving on
A loveless life
With no real hope
The calm before the storm.
She finds solace in her sadness
As the day turns into night
Her demons caress her tender heart
