enough

A Fight With Myself

Folder: 
2018

You should not

be looking

through these pictures.

 

Pieces of the past

will drive you mad.

 

Eyes open

closed

open

you can’t decide which way to turn,

which mind you believe.

 

Every road that looks like home

looks like that day too,

every little flashback

and the tears burn

and maybe that’s why you don’t look

at people’s faces

on the streets

because everything

you think you can hold long enough to love

is slipping from your shoulders.

 

You are going through

the map traveled by her fingertips

but you should not

be drifting off

in the middle of living.

 

Laugh

love her

pick up the spare change that lets you feel lucky

tell yourself

there is nothing missing here

there should be nothing to make the black hole open

 

then turn around and go back to that place

where the devil sits,

where he reminds you

this is a fire of a heart

and it can burn

or it can bleed.


You should not

be looking

through these pictures.

Enough!

Enough has been said,


 The price must be paid,


The way you offended him badly,


He is not going to let you go easily.


 

While the iron is hot,


He will strike with what he has got,


Beware you who have lost sense,


Since the future for you is going to be intense.


 

He will see the end for sure,


Stop embarrassing him more.

Tired by dfx

I'm tired, tired of wishing on every shooting star

Trying my best hasnt gotten me to far

Believe me, its just as tiring to have to lower the bar

Tired by day and at night I cant sleep

Too tired to tread water and I'm in this sooo deep

I'm tired of spilling my tears and my blood

I'm tired from sinking in this puddle of mud


And I'm tired of yesterday, memories haunt me still

Close my eyes to tomorrow as I slip over the hill

Tired of getting by with less then I need

Wanting to be loved is not really greed

Its not true what they say that its only women who bleed


I'm tired of trying and getting nowhere

Living without her just doesnt seem fair

I know I'm a loser but you dont have to stare


I'm just tired, and so damned uninspired

I've had enough, I'm ready to go

I'm tired of being tired

Stand Strong

Sometimes
Life is just too hard
You fight your battles
And all you get are scars
You let someone in
And they break your heart
No one understands you
Just for who you are

There are times when we feel we’re not enough
That’s when you need to turn to God above

And stand strong
Don’t let life pass you on
Because it’s always the darkest ‘fore the dawn
So stand strong
Don’t let them lead you on
Because you’re beautiful just the way you are
So stand strong

I know it hurts
When they attack you with their words
But you’re stronger than you know
And you don’t know how much THEY hurt
It might be
That they’re scared of life too
And what they might need
Is the hero inside you

And stand strong
Don’t let life pass you on
Because it’s always the darkest ‘fore the dawn
So stand strong
Don’t let them lead you on
Because you’re beautiful just the way you are
So stand strong

You don’t know how much you’re worth
So get out of the dirt
And live the life you’ve been given
I know
That sometimes it’s too hard
So shine just like the stars
Cause the One who died for you
Is there to help you up

And stand strong
Don’t let life pass you on
Because it’s always the darkest ‘fore the dawn
So stand strong
Don’t let them lead you on
Because you’re beautiful just the way you are
So stand strong

Stand strong
Don’t let life pass you on
Because it’s always the darkest ‘fore the dawn
So stand strong
Don’t let them lead you on
Because you’re beautiful just the way you are
So stand strong

Sweet Rose

Oh sweet rose
Was it the wind
Could it have been the rain
Why did you close

Did I not give you enough love perhaps
Or did I not feed you enough
Did I take too many naps
Was I too rough

Am I the reason
Or, was it your decision
Perhaps it was just the season
Our future was in my vision

I love you
I want to hate you
But what I really want to do
Is find out what killed you

How can I move on
Without knowing what I have done wrong
Who has ultimately won
You where my song

Speak
Say something!
Always knew you were weak
Is that you I hear sing

I am not broken
I’ve just awoken
To the sweet realisation
That I was but only a token

Oh sweet rose
Was it the wind
Could it have been the rain
Why did you close
Will you one day come back again……
