Nothing

Nothing

Nothing matters

Nothing really matters

Nothing really matters to me

You're never really doing nothing

cuz you're always doing something

breathing

blinking

thinking

eating

drinking

feeling

seeing

hearing

sitting

laying

standing

walking

skipping

tripping

falling

teaching

learning

Nothing really is something....isn't it?

Figment of my Imagination

Figment of my Imagination

By JFarrell

 

I am just a figment of your imagination

I don’t exist

The grumbling of a piece of cheese

Eaten too late at night

 

A shadow stirred by a

Tap-tap-tapping on your door

Memories awakened by

A howling on the wind

 

The breath on your neck

Of “Spring-Heeled” Jack

The knife at your throat

In Whitechapel

 

A ghost, a wisp

A vivid dream

Already forgotten

As you wake

 

The flea bites me

Then bites the arm of God

And I am nothing, forever

Just a figment, an echo

i'm i my imagination or yours?

On The Edge Of Nothing

The air up here is see-through clear

 

The only fog comes from our hot dry mouths

 

Rubbing our cracked hands

 

Licking our cracked lips

 

Teetering here, on the edge of nothing.

 

The air up here is blank-minded thought blinding

 

The only thought to shine through as stars in the nightling sky

 

Stomping our frozen feet

 

Shouting our frozen fears

 

Standing here, on the edge of nothing.

 

The air up here is falling down

 

The sky throws itself upon the mount and cries

 

We hold the frozen tears in our cracked hands

 

And catch them with our cracked lips

 

And looking up to cry with it

 

Happy tears

 

Teetering here, on the edge of nothing

The Note

I don't know how to start, I've only known sadness, 

I hate it  but I don't know anything else, 

I'm tired of waking up everyday knowing I won't be doing anything,

I just want you to know, I was never happy, I try, I really do.

But it brings frustration and despair, 

I want you to be happy, forget me and live your life, I was just that person in the back that isn't worth it.

Just something I was...  feeling.

Nothing Lasts Forever

Folder: 
Voodoo

I'm standing on an island
An island of blue
Surrounded by chaos
But caught up in you

 

Storm clouds shaded my desire
Yet, this rocky terrain fuels the fire
I've been lost for so long
Never looking for The Way

 

And now you've found Me
I wasn't looking for you
But something told me
It whispered your name

 

Come on and take My hand
Baby, we can't stay forever
But for a little while we can pretend
Nothing lasts forever
'Cept on this island of blue

 

Dark shades find us
We turn the light and blind them
Voices carry but don't you worry
The sands of time will guide us

 

Here and now
I fight but fall
Win or lose
I only know
Nothing lasts forever
'Cept on this island of blue

 

I look on past the distance
you pull me close and whisper
"I want you so bad it hurts"
And the earth below deserts us

 

Ill fated illusion cast it's net
But, let's forsake this ruin
And find what we've always been wantin'
Because, nothing lasts forever
'Cept on this island
This island of you

*You Say It Best When You Say Nothing At All*

  December-28-2002

  Trisha Barrek Hopkins

 

Your kiss says it all

Your touch tells me 

You'll catch me if I fall

Your stare lets me see

That you'll never forget to call

 

Sweety you say it best 

When you say nothing at all

But I must be certain not to make a mistake

To make sure I can put my fears to rest 

I'm still going to wait to let my heart awake

For I promised myself I would not hurt again

And for me to do that I must not feel

For true love is not pretend

I got to make sure your heart is real

 

But with you the one sent from above

From the bluest skies of heaven

I have a feeling... with you I could fall in love

Because You say it best

When you stare with your eyes

When you touch me so gently and nice

When you hold me under the starlit skies

When you say more then twice

I know you truely mean it from your heart

And whenever I start to cry

You will surely be the first one there

To gently wipe it away from my eyes

 

I tell no lies

When I tell you my heart skips a beat

When I have you by my side

I really can't wait because next to you I have a perminate seat

And when that time comes when I can truely trust

The way I feel I won't hide

Now I know its a definate must

 

Even through my body may shake a little bit

You holding me will calm me down

I want to be the one in control

On top I want to sit

After you remove my night gown

As we listen to our favorite hit

As we start to make love

We bothcan feel it...Together.. a perfect fit

 

You say it best

When you say nothing at all

Your own person your won soul

You're finally not like the rest

Making you mine is my goal

In love with me someday you;ll fall

But now lets just have fun and play

For we both are having a blast

Our true feelings lets share another day

Right now I just want to try

To make you forget your past

In every possible way

Let them bad memories pass you by

 

My love you say it best

When you say nothing

You express with no words at all

Just let there between us be something

And remember when you want some fun

You know who to call

*Nothing Lasts Forever*

 

January-20-2001 
Trisha M. Barrek Hopkins

Nothing last forever 
Sooner or later it must break down and die 
Nothing stays together 
You'll realize it when things start to pass you by 
And you no longer see each other 

Nothing lasts forever 
The tears from your eye 
They will disappear 
You will no longer be able to cry 
You wont even be able to hear 
The words from your loved one 
Because you'll be consider air 


Everything will come to an end 
Soon it'll be just space 
You will no longer have a friend 
You will be all left alone 
You wont have any love left to send 
Your heart will turn to stone 

 

Nothing lasts anymore 
It goes on to another life 
There is nothing left to adore 
What would be funny is if you were human 
And you ended up a knife

Tortured Love

Folder: 
Just Poems

 

Our love is torture

Can’t you see?

That I am suffering

You say our love is met to be

But how can this be?

 

Our love is fire

It burns me to the core of my soul

Can I just blow it out?

 

Our love is passion

I can’t get enough of you

But you’re so far outta reach  

 

Our love is happiness

It’s like the sun and hearts all in one

Is this love that I’m in?

 

 

 

Our love is heartache

Sadness and sorrow all wrapped up with a bow

How can this be?

Weren’t we met to be?

 

 

Our love was nothing

As we were never truly met to be

 

Tears fall like rain drops on the window pane

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Please do not take this poem and make it as your own, if you want to  use it please ask me first before you take it also please give me credit if you do have permission to use it. Because I will be pretty upset if you use my poems and not give me credit or anything like that. Also If I don’t know you I will not let you use it I don’t want to one day look on the internet and my poem is posted up and your name written on it I will know if you do so, I work really hard on my poems and wouldn’t like it if someone else took credit for my work. What good would it do you if you stole my work anyways?  Would it make you feel better that you stole work that wasn’t even yours to begin with.

Monsters In The Dark

Now listen to what I have to say

For the wicked hide in the shadows of this day

 

You know nothing of what is of me

You may know the color of my eyes

But not of what they are capable to see

 

Now here, I've warned this upon you

For not every smile is ever true

 

Everything is not set in stone

You may say there is an answer

When nothing is completely known

 

Close your eyes, please understand

That what you may rely on is a blood-thirsty hand

 

Unknown of what they truly are

Watch think before you turn and talk

Someone so close to you can be so far

 

So remember before you go on and say

"But why would anyone do this to me anyway?"

 

Human nature can be full of evil and greed

Unwatched, A monster born within the shadows, full only of self pleasure and need.
