The one who loved you the most (Goodbye)I suppose that i played all my cards
And still it has ended like this
but somehow im able to smile
even though you chose to be his
Do you remember not to long ago
We hung out all day at the park
you told me to "never stop writing"
and one day id be loved for my art
Well this is my last one to you
Anymore would fail to reach your ears
And it hurts to have to say goodbye
After all of our prosperous years
But I suppose that love really changes us
Hell, you changed me more everyday
You shown me what it's like to have a purpose
and to not be the one cast astray
But through all this I still find a smile
Because i know now that this is your choice
And there is nothing i can do to change that
Nothing 'cept the power of God's voice...
But Now as i take my leave
And the tears start to reach the floor
Don't cry, just remember me always
As the one who loved you the most...
Without you.what is a twister without the wind?
What is a high-tide without the moon?
What is a fish without its school?
The result would be me when im not with you
The fish is alone, easy picking for prey
The water can not progress, it is stuck at bay
The twister would fade, just lost in the air
And so that is me, when you aren't there.
Send me awaySend me away
To a place not tracked my miles
I know you don't want me to stay
So maybe now you can finally smile
Send me away
Like everyone else has before you
I'll find a new place to lay
For what else is a broken man to do
Send me away
Yet again I will play as the fool
Tear up my heart just to play
Then toss me like a useless tool
Send me away
What more can you want from me
Your leaving my heart to decay
So just let go and leave me be
Send me away
Away so I can go back to being alone
Go back to being cast astray
And go back to a world without a home.
I wish my eyes were a mirrorI wish my eyes were a mirror
so you can see you as i see
your heart was crushed by an image
built by a cruel society
I wish my eyes were a mirror
So that i may help you to believe
that what they say is lies
and show you how you are to me
I wish my Heart could speak clearer
to help you understand
that you are the only person
that can fill my empty hands
I wish i could be your savior
Wipe away your fresh tears
i would gently say i love you
as i hold you through the years
And i wish my soul was a healer
to undo all of the pain
Make all their hostile efforts
finally end in vain
But to you im just a stranger
or "Just friends at best"
because you fear that i will hurt you
just like all the rest
So i wish my eyes were a mirror
So you can see you as i see
And ill continue to count the days
until you become one with me.
To fight a losing battleYou've been acting funny lately
Is everything alright?
Don't you tell me that it's nothing
I see you toss n turn all night
You know I would give you anything
I'd bleed to make you smile
But if you're busy pointing fingers
I'll refuse to stand on trial
I'll walk away from everything
If you tell me that it makes it all better
I was here when life went to hell
And I stayed faithful through all weather
You're Killing me (Killing me)
You're Killing me
You ask me why I still fight
I don't know the answer
I'm trying to believe that We'll change
You tell me that I'm uptight
But you're not any better
No matter what I'm always to blame
So perfectly Ignited
I sit and watch our love burn
Tearing at the sight of the flames
Can't be the only one who fights it
When is it gonna be your turn
To be the one in love and insane...
I'm on the outside looking in
Because You barricaded all entry
I just wanna stand by your side
But it seems like I'm just an enemy
I'm fighting an army of hate
but I'm weak witho
#Another-Poetry-Group 's Challenge: Accepted!How exactly do you make me feel?
All of my mental wounds you healed.
Miles away, you may be
But you feel so close to me still.
I get butterflies when we speak
I’ll be even worse when we meet.
You make my heart skip several beats
Yet I’m falling for you like I tripped on the street.
And though I feel as if you deserve better
Ill be here for you and defend you whenever
Because if you agree we can find love together
And if you choose not we can stay best friends forever.
Where have you gone?You promised to have my back
When everything went to hell
You promised to stand beside me
And catch me before I fell
But where are you now?
Where are you now?
You said you would be my friend
And that I would never be alone
You said You would always be there
And make my broken house a home
But where are you now?
Where are you now?
You told me just trust and believe
And I swear on my life that I had
You told me you'd make everything okay
So I trusted that things wouldn't go bad
But where are you now?
Where are you now?
So Now I sit and fight this alone
I have no use for you anymore
I will find another to make my house a home
Someone who won't find me a chore
A battle cry for the lost.Open your eyes my child,
we're on the way home.
We may not win the battle,
but you wont go down alone.
Your mother wont be forgotten,
she was taken way too soon...
But,revenge is never the answer,
a calm mind will help us bloom
We ran away from death,
and feel guilty from the fright!
But we will return for our family!
We'd rather die with a fight!
Come to arms my brothers!
Nomads, we are not.
Think about our precious lands,
or maybe you all forgot...
Well, whoever will stand with me,
clear the anger from your heart.
Blindness from rage is fatal ,
and we'd be doomed from the start.
So open your eyes my people!
We are on the way home.
We may not win this battle,
but we wont go down alone!
Tired of being sad.Real men don't cry, they say
Well maybe their right but
I'm stuck with dry eyes
And maybe I'm not right for her
She still sits brokenhearted
And I'm all out of tries
But your life
is worth the price
of me losing my mind
So if you start
to see me smile
Its not a sign
that I'm over you
I see you running through my dreams again
(Happens every night now)
I toss and turn at what we could have been
(I'd stop if I knew how)
It just strikes a nerve, the thought of you out with another man
Holding his hand
And you may ask me what I smile for
Maybe you think I'm happier
With you gone.
I'm not smiling 'cause I'm happy, no
I'm smiling 'cause I'm tired of being sad.
The moment you left my arms
Was the moment I couldn't take
I felt every single part
of my heart start to break
No one else could make me whole
But you're a thousand miles away
And though i feel like my minds giving
I'm taking the breaths to stay
Cause I know we're good for something
We just haven't made it yet
But we'll feel it
I see yo
Count on MeYou can count on me, at any time
regardless the place or day.
I am here for you
(even though I don't know what to say).
I'll help you
as you have ever helped me.
Together, you know, we're stronger
and we will always be.
I beg you, please, let me know
if there's anything I can do for you.
You can trust me (as I trust you),
you know it's true.
GlitchStatic arises along her face. Her eyes are altering to a haze. Her expression is drawn to blank as she becomes part of a faint memory.
I sit beside her, her static hand held in mine. I don't know if this is reality or a lucid dream. But the anguish I feel is my castigation.
Her hair slashes at me when the breeze becomes a tempest. And her static body develops zigzag lines across her torso and face. She gives me a reassuring smile. But within my mind, that smile is a suppressed secret. Digital fragments of her body break away and dance with the tempest.
“Where do you think we go when we glitch?” she asked before she knew her life would end.
Above the twilight sky,
Beyond the violet horizon,
Is a firmament depicted perfectly.
Do not let your worry become so high.
That firmament is displayed so vividly, blazon.
And its welcome erupts abruptly.
Release your grasp from me.
And let its light wash you away
Into the embracing sea
And rest aside your fray.
She twists he
Shattered heartWith this broken heart I'll keep moving on
And the scar you left me will help me become strong
For my heart used to be so numb, but then you showed me love
Sadly then you shattered it, once you saw I held you dear
But I hope you don't regret what you have done
For what I felt, you'll only receive it once
A Poem About WordsA Word on Words
I’ve never been very good with words.
I spend so much time searching for the right ones,
For that one perfect phrase to describe a feeling.
Slippery as a sunfish it incessantly escapes me,
Or gets hooked upon my lip.
It’s difficult to say what I mean,
Let alone mean what I say.
And words make it so much harder;
Ineffectual, impersonal and imprecise as they are.
I might say I love a steaming pot of tea in the morning,
Or a big cozy sweater on a winter’s day.
But sweaters and tea don’t quite add up to how I feel about you.
You might say a rose is pretty,
Or a sunset.
But I am hardly a flower or a sinking star.
I wish there were a way to pinpoint these feelings,
To let you know exactly what they are.
Instead I tread water futilely,
Drowning in the vagueness of language;
I simply choose silence.
Perhaps worst of all about words,
Is that they can lose their luster so devastatingly quickly.
I want meaning to permeate time; to last forever
LoveIt doesn't come easy
It doesn't come quick
It can make you feel happy
Or make you feel sick
It can make you feel powerful
It can make you feel "hip"
But can also make you fall
And make you lose your grip
When you meet him, you wait for the words
The words you hope are true
When he kisses your lips and tenderly says
"I'll always love only you"
to feel...To feel someone's arms around me,
To feel a kiss, passionate, and deep,
To curl up together as we sleep.
Hearing your heart beat as i lay on your chest,
Holding you close, forget the rest,
Being happy with each other, no less.
Walking hand in hand down the street,
Not caring about the opinions of who sees,
Knowing despite what the world believes,
This love is real between you and me.
This is the simple happiness of my dreams,
Nothing extravagant, just having my love with me.
I don't have much hope left,
but i hope this will come to be.
The man in grey
Sits in the shadows
For his sweet love
To return to him.
Every day is always the same.
The man wakes up,
Out of bed,
And sulks through his routine.
First comes the slow,
Painful walk to the washroom.
He relieves himself, shaves,
And readies for the day.
Next comes his wait
In the kitches
While is coffee brews
And he gets on his shoes.
And then he's off
To his 9 to 5
Job at the office.
Biding his time to the end of the day.
And after work,
Every day, without fail,
The man makes his way
To the park.
The park where he proposed,
And his girl said yes.
The park where she vowed
To meet him when she returned.
The park where they were
To be married in three months time.
And he always sits on the same bench,
Every day, without fail.
Until one day,
When he recieved
A disturbing call
From the hospital.
"Sir, it's about your fioncee.
She's been in a terrible accident,
And has asked you come
As quick as you can."
Seeminly at once,
The tenderness that's herWith every word written, with every word spoken
I try my best to express myself, without it being broken
For what I feel is deep in my heart, is love that I want to be showing
Every day it develops, every day I feel more loving
Is the tenderness of passion, which I’ve never felt before
A feeling that I got from a girl who I truly adore
Beautiful as a rose and gentle as a peaceful dove
My heart gets filled with warmth, a feeling I describe as love
She’s the most beautiful girl I’ve seen, that’s as simple as I can be
So very cute and filled with joy, she’s the only girl who I want to see
Her adorable smile that always cheers me up, she’s the only one I need
She’s everything I ever wanted, I thank god that he gave her to me
Goodbye for now, Goodbye for laterThe Goodbye for now hurts me
And it is for your pleasure alone you see
For you are the only one who gains
And your heart he'll "Forever" Keep
But little did you know my dear
that you weren't the only one
Now your sitting there all alone
while they are together on the run
The Goodbye for later hurts us both
For as you try to come to me
I am forced to pull up the courage
To tell you its just not to be
Because if you were willing to leave me
for someone who you barely knew
then i know that you would do it again
And then i can no longer blame you.
So cry on my shoulder if you need to
I never said we couldn't be friends
but as far as love is ever concerned
This will have to be the end.
The Coffee GodThe Coffee God behind the counter shuffles foot to foot, a dance of steam and espresso. Black painted fingernails, inch gauged ears and a gray striped sweatshirt, hood crooked on his back. There's a cigarette tucked behind one ear; it bobs and twitches with each step.
“Non-fat caramel latte,” he calls, just as he always does, part of a spell, part of a mantra, toneless (just a tuck at the end). I reach. He looks up.
The espresso maker hisses.
There's something like a grin, something like a spark, something like a shared secret linked eye to eye. When he passes over the drink (rough cardboard sleeve hot to the touch), he lingers. Our fingers brush, a shiver, a jolt, a ten-watt shock.
The Coffee God tilts his chin, shouts, “Hey, mind if I take my break now?”
and ducks around the counter without waiting for a reply.
He slips his cigarette between his lips without taking his eyes from mine. I follow him out the door.
Keep in Touch!
