So much praised ignorance
Those who fear the darkness are doomed to live in it and be blind
But those who understand it will find light
Freedom of thought, expression , and choice
Isn't that what everyone wants ?
Knowledge can be a sword that swings in both directions...
while I was having an anxiety attack which caused me to hallucinate. I thought about posting the first draft to display the pure, unbound disorder, but I decided against it, and revised it to try and turn the feelings into something coherent through the rhythm. Anyway, I'm not...
been sorrow , there could have been pain but yet all i can remember is the void.
The void of feelings once felt, it's essence leaving me in it's wake. Teasing, taunting me to chase only to find more of the same.
My heart is a time bomb of desire, i have no control when i...
I received huge amounts of positive feedback, a few people said they want to publish it in newsletters. (schools, agencies, etc). So I figured, maybe it's worth sharing.
People spend their whole lives
Trying to figure out
Who that are
Why they're here.
But I'm lucky...
another day by the grave,
Six feet down the broken cannot be saved,
When all is said and done,
We gotta sacrafice our paradise for oblivion,
One more day till the other side,
No time to waste on the stronger ones,
Tonight we have to bring it down,
Who knows tonight could be...
watch as i fall
Watch as i burn, as i risk it all
I battled them all to be the best
Time after time stepping over the rest
Nothing can stop me, i'll break down the wall
Nothing can stop me, i stand here, i stand tall
Try to break me, i'll just break free
It''s time to...
I'll play the part I have to play
You never know, dear
When God, Himself, will intervene
and I, myself, had no fear
In time, you'll see it just like me
I am worthless
I am useless
I am powerless to even face it
I am helpless
I am hopeless
Give me another day, I...
All over again:
i sit here, erasing the pictures of you,
i sit here, wondering what did i do
i go through it in my head, everything that i've said
i can't believe i let you in, now i start all over again
I only ever told you i needed you
I only ever told you i...
I could cry but it gets me no where. If I say something Ill be screwed. I don't want anything to happen but I dont want anything to NOT happen either. Maybe it's that perfection is staring me in my face and feeling how I am and my heart not wrecking the safeness of the state...
VERSE 1I have faced each day with the blade,Found no answers at all,I hold on until the end,But slowly it gets colder,Each night draws in my tears.VERSE 2You say not to run away,Yet you have left over and over again,Letting my light go,Fading away my childhood,Where has my...
"The invisible woman"
The invisible woman went out on the town
At the bar her husband sat down
So she was overjoyed when she caught the eye
Of a dancing guy
Who would twirl her around
It was nothing seedy that would go too far...
but then I woke
I still remember each word you spoke
I dreamt the way I wanted things to be
Here we stand just you and me
I look to the sky, know that you are there
Hope you know I’ll always care
Looked at the pictures of you and me
Thought that you and I would always be
write our names in the sand?
Would you let me kiss your cheek, hold you up when you feel weak?
Would you let me be the one to take you off into the sun?
Would you allow me this simple dream?
Steal a kiss or two, so glad to be near you,
Listen for a whisper or two, so glad I can...
Faster everything changes to a gray.
Farther I'll move away,
This madness in my mind,
It's just killin time.
This sadness in my bones, it follows me where ever I go.
Ya know I'll be alright,
If I can just make it through tonight.
And maybe you'll hold me tighter...
all your words and all your taunts
when alone i bled inside
ran away to my own little corner to hide
You used to make me cry
thanks to you now i can fly
i used to dream of the day i died
now i'm stronger i no longer have to hide
Keep thinking you ruined me...
or phrase that I'm really proud of, but never get to record. And then 5 minutes later, I'm trying to remember what it is. I once thought up an amazing song on the stairs and lost it once I got to class. :/
to walk on through the rain, while hammers break and bend the fibers of this heart that beats for You, each day I have to start again & search for strength anew.. Some may say, why put yourself through this? Why stay? I stay because I don't have it in me to walk away From the...
So, sometimes I get ideas in my head for poems. I mostly write lyrics, but occassionally an idea will pop into my head so I will write it down. This isn't very good, and I will probably adapt it, but I thought I would get it down whilst it was still fresh in my mind and edit it...
scars and make me sane// Make me numb/ Kill the pain/ Heal my scars and make me sane// I'm broken, broken/ Maybe this pretty pill will fix me/ I'm broken, so broken/ Somebody please just kill me// I am done/ I am done// Scars on our hips/ Scars on our thighs/ Eyes full of hurt...
... If only you knew ...
I see your beautiful smile ..
I see your beautiful eyes ..
... If only you knew ...
How much I love you ..
I see my life before you ..
And I see my life with you ..
... If only you knew ...
How much you've changed in me ..
I'm trying to tell you ..
back. I don't really know if I would call this lyrics, poetry or a short story. It's a bit of all three I guess, though structured horribly.. but anyway, here goes:
Every person has that point where they break when all of a sudden your sanity and self it's at stake...
You don't see me as I feel you .
You don't feel me as I see you .
Do not hear me as my heart holds true .
You won't give me.
When my mind is blue.
The time of day
Is it all I deserve?
A period of passing by .
Day and night a heartfelt cry.
To save me from myself...
The only thing complicated was catching fireflies
They said it gets better when you grow up, they lied
You're only 16, you get your first heartbreak from the girl of your dreams
But you failed to realize
From the look in my eyes, that I cried
Because it should have...
From this i would learn
The scars and memories of 1000 lashes
I wish i could fly
high in the clouds above
I wish I could rise and the old battered spirit could die
Rise like an eagle with the grace of a dove
Do you see my smile?
The one that I wear everyday
The one that says I'm okay
But am I?
Do you hear me laughing
At your lamest jokes
And silly antics
But is it for real?
Or is it fake?
Is it a mask I wear
To avoid the questions?
Or a mask that I wear
To hide my emotions?
one another. I really didn't want to post it cause I think it sucks but I haven't posted a poem in awhile so why not? Lol:
"Kevin I hate you!"
"Priscilla you're disgusting!"
"Kevin you're nothing but a liar and cheat"
"Priscilla, your presence is like rotten meat"
Sorry i looked at you
Sorry i said hello
Sorry i want to give my heart
Sorry i want to be with you
Sorry i want you by my side
Sorry i said i loved you
Sorry i told the world
Sorry that without you i feel i need to hide
Sorry but i'm just me
I wrote this recently for one of the most amazing people in my life. She has long suffered with autism and muscular dystrophy, and has faced many years of intolerant and judgmental people not bothering to get to know her and only considering how she looks. To me, she is stunning...
and crumble the page
she's gone now so shouldn't i erase?
How i feel inside?
Take apart what makes up my heart and cast it aside?
Do the feelings i have mean anything at all?
the words i know have become lame, replaced with a sole name
calling, hoping within' an instance
all of a sudden this was on the paper, and oh my god, where did it come from? But I love it.
I used to be the kid
Who wrote poetry at 1 AM
On a spare napkin
Because inspiration hit.
I used to be the kid
Who wanted to be a lawyer
So badly that I watched Suits
Like it was the...
I fell from grace,The fall was hard,The pained you caused,was brutal and scarred.I wished to never be in this place,That it hadn't happened,Was all a mistake.Yet still I fell.Heat turned to fire,The flames building so high,I just couldn't see it,I didn't want to try.I hit the...
One man's drink is another man's poison...that's true of women, too...she's anxious to get you, I can't wait to get rid of you...I say, more power to her! and I hope she's got a sense of humor...when she finds out she didn't steal a husband...she just won herself a part-time...
want someone to hold me
I have hit a low
See me as I am
A lost lamb
And life is the wolf
And I'm running away
Please tell me it won't always be this way
I have tried so hard to say my feelings
I have tried so hard to search for a healing
Depression is swallowing
Is numbness an emotion?
How can it not be when, at times,
It’s all I ever feel?
Sometimes I wonder if it has a mind of its own
It’s very deceptive,
At first it seeps into yourheart,
Makes you cold,
Then it envelopes your...
Close the door
Invade me I never opened my eyes
I don't really care anymore
Rob me of my soul
Rape me with your eyes
Transcend through time
I never opened my eyes
You'll whisper soft dark sweet lyrics in my ear that are as black as night and spread across eagles' wings
I now cannot sleep unless you are there to hold,
I now cannot dream of silver or of gold,
I wait for my dreams to fold as they crash into every one else I know,
I grow tired I grow so old, for all of this you never show
Hidden away like a shadow of love, these are the...
Someone I can run over to and jump into their arms,
Someone who is my everything,
Someone who could relate to my issues,
Someone who I can trust,
Someone who I could run away with,
Someone who feels what I feel,
Someone who wonders what lies beyond,
Someone who loves me...
I know that you and the bottle are buddies since way back when
you say that whiskey stood by you, when you couldn't find a friend
but sweetheart, I can't help but worry
you need it more each passing day
and when you crawl inside the bottle
the best of you just crawls away
