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...
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.
#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.
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.
Passing you by.You were my sole inspiration
But now your just a complication
I had thought of you an angel
But you were the devil's cruel creation
I truly fell for your illusion
and I tried to be amusing
You're asking me forgiveness
My heart has had enough abusing
I don't give out many second chances
And I'll barely return your hopeful glances
He wasn't all you hoped to be
And I'm glad you finally understand this
But now i wave to you goodbye
without a second thought in mind
I pray to God that you forget me
Because it hurts to pass you by
An ode to a certain beautyThere's a certain beauty
That has captured my eye
Her friendship would behoove me
I can not pass her by
She may not be pencil thin
but to me, that is okay
She won't be taken by the wind
So her body I will not trade.
She may not be Americas top model
but there's no doubt that she is fine
The space between our eyes like tunnels
Their beauty traveling into my mind.
She may not be the next Einstein
But she is smart enough for me
She says the right thing at the right time
And puts my heart at ease
She may not be perfect to others
but everyone makes mistakes
The only real crime she has ever mustered
Was the taking of my heart today
She may not be be real popular
but she is just enough to make me laugh
She isn't scared of a little dirt
And always knows how to have a blast
So that's how I feel about this girl
How I fight to make her mine
but hopefully I'm the last man in the world
or she believes that "Love is blind"
So if you happen to see my girl
Pass this message, and be so kind
If these are to be my last wordsIf these are to be my last words...
And these fatal wounds are true..
as your captain in command
I have a few lasts tasks for you...
Tell my wife that i love her,
and that she meant the world to me
And tell her sorry for the emotions
that I was too dumb to see
Tell my son that I love him
He was to be my pride and joy
And tell him im sorry i wont be there
When he trades his wood in for my sword.
Tell my daughter that i love her
She is so strong just like her mother
Tell her let no man hold her back
and always look out for her brother
Tell my brother, that noble king
as he sits upon his throne
to watch over my mourning family
make sure they still have a home...
And last but not least...
I want you to lead these men home
And i want to thank you for sticking by me
off the battlefield and on...
Now go fulfill your destiny
And remember what i have asked
if these are my final words
then it be what our enemies lack.
Shed a tear for the Marine
Shed a tear for the Marine
for he is not allowed to cry
He's as tough as he can be
And they're never allowed to hide
Shed a tear for the Marine
for when the world is calling
They are the first ones to the field
To fight for those that have fallen
I shed a tear for my Marine
For he means the world to me
And I feel safer now at night
Knowing he's watching over me
Shed a tear for the Marine
For time doesn't fly by
Three long months in Paris Island
And he's a Marine until he dies
So Shed a tear for the Marine
For he is not allowed to cry
He is more than just a soldier
He is a friend to all mankind
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!
Be CarefulBe Careful
This is a rhyme to warn everyone
To be careful with who and what you mess with
‘Cause one wrong move will leave those you love, stunned
While some people may think bullying is cool
Don’t think they’re not messed up, too
These folks are weaker than those they abuse
At home, probably abused and spoken to badly
Probably cussed at and beaten
And unfortunately, don’t have the mental capacity
To understand what they’re doing is faulty
On the outside these people may appear cold and callous
However like everyone, they have a conscious, too
And I promise you, they’re not heartless
They’re just misadvised, mistaken, and misunderstood
Misadvised by their parents’ example
Mistaken in their unfortunate actions
Misunderstood since no one bothers to bother with them
They’re just the bad seed, the ugly duckling
And that’s why they call that same “nerd” that exact thing
They just need an intelligent
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.
Summer. I once knew a girl whose name was Summer
She acted like a child, she was so happy and wild
And she would always share her love,
She was always with a smile
But one day I noticed, she was no longer happy
So I approached her and said “Why so unhappy?”
She didn’t respond, she just started crying
Later she said “My father is dying.”
Her father had cancer, bedridden and solemn
I only had one answer, “We both know where he’s going.”
She grabbed my hand and responded with “Thank you.”
So then we stood up, and continued growing
A few weeks later, her father passed away
But I always held her, day by day
She never left my side, I helped her feel beloved
On the worst days of Summer, I gave her my love
You Told MeYou Told Me
You told me, “We only have one life to live…”
I never wanted to be ‘that guy,’ so I said, “I’d give it another try.”
But I suppose you thought that meant I had a few more chances to give…..
‘Cause nothing changed; simply more of the same straight-faced lies
Only this time, the lies became more outrageous
“You’re the most amazing person I’ve ever known,” you hesitated,
Then muttered, “I love you,” but now, deep down I knew you were no one to trust
Believe me I wanted to, but I’m not so easily persuaded
I saw through the façade; or as you put it, “Your wall,”
But you didn’t need it, not with me; at one point you really were my best friend
I would always be there for you, whenever you began to fall
I’d protect you and keep you safe; I never wanted our friendship to end
You told me, “I was the kindest guy you
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
Lately...Lately I've been thinking, if the steps
That I've taken were meaningful at all
I'm not sure if my conscience helps me anymore
Maybe faith is guiding me through this storm
My heart feels like it's being torn
By the one who I've cared about the most
It's Easier To Cry In The RainIt's easier to cry
In the rain...
Because I'm broken,
And the drops
Hide my pain...
With every step I take,
Another crack appears.
With every breath I take,
Another scar appears...
Is this what you want?
Not worthy of anything.
A figment of what
I used to be.
I used to be able
To stand every day.
Stand tall and strong,
Ready to tackle the day...
But not anymore...
I've been beaten...
I've been scarred...
Cuts and bruises appeared,
And their ghosts never left.
I'm here, crumpled...
Crying in the rain...
Dying in the rain...
And no one seems
To be interested in helping...
Won't you at least
Come over to check...
Check to see if I...
If I'm still me?
If I can still function?
It would mean the world to me
To know know that
Just one other person
Gave a shit about me...
Because no one else does...
On the verge of splitting apart...
And no one cares...
This rain hides my tears,
Hides my pain...
It's easier to cry
Short Poem for My FamilyShort Poem for My Family
My father, what a character, seemingly unpredictable
Yet somehow everything he says is expected
My dad, so eclectic and respectable
Intelligent and unforgettable
My mother so caring, she’s a genius
Qualities so beyond me; all of us
A beautiful warrior who’s overcome so much adversity
My little sister so quiet, I often wonder what she’s thinking
A creative mind, a right-brained, artistic wonder
She often creates dark characters who are trying to keep from sinking
These three people mean the world to me, more than they’ll ever know
This is a poem, that I’ll probably never show ‘em
But if they find these short rhymes, they’ll know I dedicated this to them
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"
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.
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!
