tears

Numb

Folder: 
Light and Dark

Every tear a snapshot

Every wound a memory

Scars I can’t remove

Remind of what you did to me

Visions glare in front of me

But I can’t feel a thing

That life both past is present

All lost because a ring

 

I'm trying to make things better,
but they only get worse.
Trying to stuff the pain away
To try and hide the hurt.
But this world is grinding at my sand paper sanity
until it's absolutely nothing.
And these demons have me on my knees begging for mercy.

Well, at least it’s something

 

I can’t go on like this

I’ve got to get away

Fallen angels dragging me down

To die again today

My heart has lost it’s city lights

It’s eroded into the slum

And I’ll never feel a thing again

I only can feel numb

Lost, abandoned, forsaken, left

Deserted, discarded, neglected, bereft

Cast off again, I can’t even start

Another child aborted, but this was my heart

 

All that’s left is apathy

Nothing left inside of me

Never will we be one

And so I’m left again, numb

Sleep, My Love

Folder: 
My Love

Just close your eyes

And sleep away your fear

In dreams, no-one dies

Don’t worry, I’m still here

Come morning light

You need not have a care

Because all will be alright

I’ll dry away your tears

have you created something

have you ever created something
creation you've never seen
have you stayed up nights & wept
for someone you've never met
have you shed rivers of tears
over that someone for years
your life would you share
if this someone was out there
would your heart be aching
would your knees be shaking
would you fall to thier feet
on the day you were to meet
if you met would this melt
the sadness you have felt

well i have this someone out there
and cant express how much i care
believe me this is true
son i love you!

Tears For My Adversary

Folder: 
Untitled. . .

Why did you do this?

I ask you for nothing

I didnt even know you.

Why me?

I deserve an answer.

Instead you grin.

Tear one.

I even tried to help you

Still sour?

Ill play by your rules

You snicker. This is pain.

Tear two.

Im trying to understand.

If you would let me.

Wait, I dont need your permission!

You dont own me!

Smacked down

While hearing the sound of hysterical laughter

Three, Four. . .Tweleve. . . Twenty.

I give up.

I can no longer cry for you, Confidence.

I lack confidence, sometimes I dont. Even having confidence in a situation can still end badly. Sometimes confidence changes nothing. All you can do is wait and see. What happens, happens.

To Whom It Concerns

Folder: 
My Love

I know your fears
Your tears
When you think no-one’s around
And break down under the façade
The mask you use to hide yourself
I am there, my hand outstretched
But you do not see it
You cannot see it
Do you not know
The walls you’ve built are a one way mirror?
I can see in, but you cannot see a way out
The gates you built to protect you are enclosing around you
Can’t you feel their pressure?
Can’t you hear my voice?

I see the past pain
Engraved by your own hands
On your arms and legs
I see the fear you have
That someone can look past your shadows
And see you
A little girl with tears in her eyes
Trying desperately to be brave

I can see you

And all this time, you thought it infatuation perhaps?
Why I stay around
Why I care
Why I’m always there
Why I support you
Why I pray for you
It’s not a passing craze on my part
It’s love
And because of that, I want to see you reach for the stars
To become better than you are now
To heal the scars that just won’t go away
To find the strength to fight another day
I don’t care if you love me back
I don’t care if you feel indebted
Forget it
Because this isn’t about me
I live through you
Can’t you feel it?

∞ Infinity

Folder: 
Rookie Poet

After everything, all those years
Those happy nights, them burning tears
Forever felt, close-by and near,
But now it’s gone, with deep strong fear.
The fear of loss, the dreadful days
Nothing to do, to ease the pain
Distant memories, of sunsets and smiles
Heart-broken times, remain sad and futile
Teenage years, full of lust and firsts
Overshadowed by endings, with sudden disperse.
Questions impend within a shocked mind,
Once inseparable, how we intertwined
Forever is over, infinity spent
Lies swept away, all that’s left is your scent...

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Wrote this about an hour ago... written mainly to get closure on a situation. Rookie poem by a rookie poet (rhyming and all!)

Time to move on.

Your Decision

Folder: 
My Love

I know how you feel
Like being ripped apart
Lying on the rack
Two different answers
Two different ways
Two different lives
And I won’t give you the right answer
Because I’m one of them
But, this is your life
Are you who you want to be?
Which way does God want for you?
Which answer do you really want?

This is your decision
But even if you don’t choose me
Know this:
I’ve got your back
I am with you
I won’t leave you
I’ll catch you when you fall
I’ll rejoice when you fly
And be there when you cry
Even though I may want to die
I’ll smile for you, hidden tears in my eye

Yet, should you choose me,
I’ll never love another
I won’t be concerned with me but each other
You’ll never have to run
You’ll never have to fear
I’ll love you till my dying day
Even when memory fades away
God and us, love never ending
You’ll always be cared for, loved from the heart
And you’ll never have to look for love somewhere else

Would You Go With Me

Folder: 
Love

Would you go with me
Far away from where we are
To another world from where you've lived
We'll follow the morning star

Would you go with me
If I led you from your fears
If I kissed away your tears
Loved you for a million years

Would you go with me
And start this life anew
I didn't lie, I only want you
To be one instead of two

Would you go with me
Love you for the rest of our lives
Better than those fakers can contrive
You make me feel alive

Would you go with me
If I told you I loved you
And that there's nothing more that I want to do
Than to live and love no-one but you

Break Your Sound Barrier

Can you hear my mind screaming out to you?
Listen to the voice of the woman you loved,
Crying out for you to take her back.
It'll lose it's voice soon if you won't be able to hear it...

I won't be able to stop myself from trying to break it,
The sound barrier that separates both our voices.
You may be able to still see me through the glass,
But will you be able to understand the pain without hearing it?

My heart beats faster than normal when I see your name,
Hearing too many echoes to give me a headache.
The sounds are blocked off by your barrier...
Soon enough, I'll break it and let you feel and hear my pain!

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Sorry if this is my shortest poem, but I think it's time that I stop writing about my past relationship and move on.
