mistakes

Washed Away

Folder: 
Favorites

 

Mistakes of the past,
Created by misfortune,
And misjudgment,
Today are washed away.

 

Powerful strikes,
Break the layers,
Cut us down to size,
Restore us to new.

 

Water droplets,
Fall gently, then firm,
Spontaneously reminding,
Not to be predictable.

 

Welcome to the storm,
Nature’s forgiveness,
Apology,
Ending,
Fresh start.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

In honor of our January thunderstorm today.

Shutdown

 

The power is out,
The lights are gone anyways,
Seems I couldn’t find my way,
Always astray,
These days.

 

In a word,
Shutdown.
Past people,
Irrelevant sequels,
Happiness tainted by a frown.

 

Living to love,
Accidentally creating hate,
Emotions churn,
Leaving a burn,
Logic arriving too late.

A Cyclic Kinda Dizzy

 

I don't seem to learn from my mistakes

They just drift into oblivion

And I can't count all of the heartaches

I've caused myself from what I've done then redone

 

It's like my conscience is inaudible

Or that I choose to ignore its voice

But it never stays that silent

In this cyclic kinda noise

 

It's a deja vu

A wicked voodoo

And it's all thanks to me

 

I think I'm in a tizzy

In a cyclic kinda dizzy

I keep calling myself out

But the line is always busy

And no matter what good cards I hold

For some reason I always choose to fold

And fall back into this misery

 

You'd think that after a good while

I'd start to get the picture

But I'm beginning to believe

That I'm a unfixable fixture

 

This history repeats itself

And I cannot control myself

From weaving this web that I weave

 

I think I'm in a tizzy

In a cyclic kinda dizzy

I keep calling myself out

But the line is always busy

And no matter how what good cards I hold

For some reason I always choose to fold

And fall back into this misery

 

I swear that fixing this mess is on my list of things to do

But I either don't know how or I don't care to

Breakup of Success

Abandoned and afraid
Scared to death I fade
Exhausted and dejected
Anxiety to be expected

.........................................

Only you know what you’ve done
My heart strings toyed for fun
Convinced you’re worth the fight
I went sleepless night after night

.........................................

Lying to my face
I thought you needed space
****, I was wrong
With him now you’re strong

.........................................

Your decision to leave
But you led me to believe
With my heart full of affection
I believed in a re-connection

.........................................

I was too naive
Blind, she won’t deceive?
But now I see the clues
Just a firework with no fuse

.........................................

Bawling for days
Alone with God I praised
A chance to be redeemed
This is what I always dreamed

.........................................

Slowly I found the sun
Finally, it begun!
A path to become a man
God laid out my plan

.........................................

Engineered to perfection
I detached no more connection
Freedom long at last
Happiness unsurpassed

.........................................

I jostled for position
Ignited with ambition
Friends, family and new dates
My single life awaits

.........................................

A 180 degree transition
Now I’m on a mission
Jubilant life grows on
New beginning, I’m a pawn

.........................................

The spring of the upswing
Soon I’ll be a king
Bitterness in the past
Surprised by this contrast

.........................................

I rose up from the dust
Like a bomb I was combust 
The fire burned inside
Leaping I found my stride 

.........................................

This poem a rendition 
Interpret with conviction
For I have found the way
Forever I will stay

 

when it comes to you.

fearful of making the same mistakes

though I am more than likely to

because there are things I'd like to ask 

and as easy as those questions come

it is hard when they come to you

 

you weren't just a holiday or vacation

though you share the sentiment of one

because you are every day and every night

and you are the ache in between my giggles

my disorientation when the night greets the sun

 

there were a handful of faces to pick apart

though only yours really came into view

because you had the nerve to confront my absurdities 

and much of that I needed to hear

most of what you had to say about me was true

 

to make your eyes illuminate is a wish

though I am unsure of what my efforts would transpire

because the closer I hope to get

and the further things trail away

I am surely only causing your will to tire

 

fearful of making the same mistakes

though I am more than likely to

because there are things I'd like to ask 

and as easy as those questions come

it is hard when they come to you

Perfection

Folder: 
2013

I have always wanted the 'perfect' man

The one whom does no wrong, does

Everything correct, who takes down the moon

The type that knows me and the things I've done

And still loves me for whom I am

 

Well, I didn't find him, not by a long shot

I have found something even better

I have found someone that is perfect

In the face of all the flaws, even with all the errors

And I love him with everything I am

 

I'm so in love with him, not necessarily despite his flaws

I in fact love him because of his mistakes in the past

Because that made him who he is

And made him become the person I cherish

I love you Chad for everything that you are

To me and your feelings for me

What It Is

I feel like every single thing is like a mind game,  played and laid out for me

I can't feel a single thing, like I'm not blind, but I still can't see

 

What is it really? Perhaps it's not that important?

Tell me what it is, or is it just my own comportment?

 

I have walked in the very things I've looked down upon

What I once thought was selfish, now I too am wrong

 

and now there is blood all over my hand

But I have no idea why, I just don't understand

 

This is a complication called the human mind

Irony, double standards, hypocrisy, A place to be so blind

 

To wallow and loop in this thick puddle of shame

For the mistakes commited, I fairly wore the blame

 

Knowing is the beginning is something I suppose

It's better to learn, rather than to find it to oppose.

 

So I guess I'll take my feelings and throw them to the floor

I'll leave you where you originally were, trapped inside a closed door

 

And you can echo your goodbyes

as you embrace yourself to the ink of sheer ignorance and sighs..

I'm Just Human

I try my best to make things right;

every time I try  I fail miserably it just makes me scream, why can't I die?
So many problems all so quick,
So overwhelming I can't breathe.
I try to plan out what to do next,
then before you know it that problem turns into two.
I don't know what you want from me, 
I'm just a human can't you see? 
I'm not perfect, I screw up.
I'm just trying to figure out what to do without your condescending words in my mind flowing to the same hateful tune.
Why do you expect so much from me,
Perfect isn't my destiny.
I'm not meant to be flawless,
I just wish you would accept me regardless.
Don't pressure me, don't keep telling me what I already know.
I'm not stupid, maybe just a little slow.
That doesn't mean I can't fix my problems,
just trust me when I say I'll solve 'em.
I can't handle all this pressure,
my issues don't get better.
I'll try and pretend like they don't exist,
I'll try and forget about all of this.
No one left that I can trust, no one to count on, no such thing as love. 
I will runaway even if it's not right,
I'll deal with you and all my problems some other time. I just need to get some sleep and save what's left of my peace of mind.
