Like an eagle in a cage somewhere, clipped wings by his sides
You can read the secret dreams of flight that soar behind his eyes
He may stay a while and love you, let you feed him from your hand
Ah, but leave the cage door open, you'll find the eagle's spirit strong
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...
Inch by inch
The water is drifting
Waves rise up again
My weight has been abducted
So I swim deep down into the ocean
Down where we can't see anything beneath
So we're left blind eyed
Until the bright lights shine
Underneath it seems so clear
Its safe to say...
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
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
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...
your life's problems,
But being on the road doesn't have to make them worse.
All that time by yourself is an opportunity for thinking,
Piece together the full story and maybe framing it as a verse.
Then you can rehearse and sing the song about what's troubling you,
And like with...
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...
I hear the pieces splinter,
And in that moment time stands still.
Shattering, falling, breaking,
Like rain that pours unendingly.
Pain courses through every fibre,
It twists its jagged edges,
embedding itself until
It is all that remains.
The pieces are so small,
The pain can't...
there were once calculations,
lies and numbers
painting a perfect passage of time
in the end was a parkinglotjunkie.
caught between a sleepy stupid figure and love
shooting wormholes for secret science
past pearly gates / with hateful thoughts
shaking sounds of shame bring...
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...
You took my soul.
When you looked into my eyes,
All you saw was a deep dark hole.
Help me when I'm falling deeper down.
I need you her to make me feel loved.
For every word you say is sweet.
And my heart stops each time we meet.
A day seems like an hour when you...
looking down and ready to fall
just seconds till the end, the end of it all
i can hear, i can hear the angels call
look at me here flat on the floor
who would have thought i once stood tall
So hard to live, harder to die
falling asleep, trying not to cry
i see the light...
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...
when i ws in a very dark place.
I'm sorry baby but i had to say goodbye
i'm looking down over you
up here with angels
please baby, please don't cry
Every day you wake up, i will always be there
every time you see our picture, know i'll always care
when you cry i...
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
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...
wishing i could die
I'm on public show
With absolutely nowhere to go
people stand there watching me falling
As i hear the heavens calling
I'm here thinking of the days when i used to feel tall
Now all i want is to end it all
Weaving pictures in my mind,
Of all the things I've left behind.
A tapestry of memories,
A portrait of how things used to be.
A word, a thought, a laugh a smile,
All beautifully etched in the image for a while.
The colours fade,
The feeling remains,
Like a part of your soul has...
perfect words to say goodbye
But every word just makes me cry
I’ve been trying to figure out why you had to fly
Now I sit and cry
A peaceful place where you shall rest
Hard to go on but shall do our best
We all said you were the best
Even through the trouble that put us to...
I wrote this song in my 20's to express some feelings I had which still come up from time to time:The Fool
Hello stranger, I'm a fool
who shares my heart and lets you see inside your own
Hello stranger, can't you see?
I have doubts and fears
the same as you've been locking...
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...
of release, red droplets staining my sheets, dripping down my leg, thighs on fire, the feeling of relief like a scream from my body, X's and Oh ****'s on my skin, my mind is full of hurt and deceit, watch my skin unzip with the razor blade, the pinky white below the surface...
... 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 ..
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...
(unlike the bad poem I wrote last week).
Sleeping on the job in Memphis
Sleeping on the job in Memphis
waiting for my shift to come in.
I can't get my trailer unloaded
until these guys start working.
I'm not getting paid for this downtime
so I'd better do something...
A little prince was born into this world with dreams and goals that burned inside him with a passionate fire. When he stepped outside his castle walls of stone for the first he noticed the poverty and sadness that surrounded him and, afraid of the world, retreated back into his...
Tired of feeling like I'm about to go to slaughter
Tired of holding onto yesterday
Tired of wishing it was a brand new day
At every turn there's a wall
At every turn there's another chance to fall
There's no end seen in sight
Searching long and hard but can't find the...
Existence is out there
While I hang from this rope
Waves against rocks
A constant reminder
Life will go on
And you will get stronger
Would you miss me if I left
Is there anything left to miss
Just a vacant shell
A gaping abyss
Washed up on the beach
Picked up as a...
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...
Past Present and Future
We're connected for sure
Not by blood, but by time and soul
We might have a different role
In another life
In another sight
Our souls have bonded
All on it's own
In another time, explained
Like invisible lines
Watch as the pieces fall
Watch as he comes undone
A man on the outside
A boy lay within
His smile, his way to hide
The tears dwell in him
The strength he must show
The man he must be
No one will know
The pain they’ll never see
A smile on the outside
when in all actuality I don't. It is just something I do from time to time. Here goes, a poem. Sing it if you can. Make music to it if you're able, and change it to further bring out the soul. It's amazing the things people can accomplish in groups.
Quickly my fingers work in...
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 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...
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...
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
thought of loosing
To forget all it was
Something from the beginning)
Society is killing me
Anxiety is my enemy
Time has no ending
I keep on falling
I've given up on redemption
But its not enough to live in prevention
Every day seems to be blending
When will it all grow...
Going to pour myself another drink
Anything that’ll to help make me sleep
See it’s not my dreams that haunt
But it’s how far they’re out of reach
So I sit by the window
Watch the world go by
Pretend it’s not getting to me
Tell myself another lie
“It’s alright, it...
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...
when i was feeling down one day a while ago. I still kinda go through this in my head sometimes.
If i died tonight would you remember my name?
If i died tonight would you remember what i looked like?
If i died tonight would you cry?
If i died tonight i wouldn't really be...
