sorrow

Her Perspective

I found a girl, and saw her perspective
Silent, yet surprisingly reflective
They claimed she was away, entirely defective

But I knew otherwise just from the look in her eyes
I saw through the silent, and closed off disguise


And from there, I saw the immediate connection
Completely dissected, but still searches for true affection

 

Her warm, yet crooked emotion
A calmed, yet broken devotion

 

Silent, but struggling for her sound
and yet, still not a face found

 

Her skin torn, gone and rotten.
Her mouth stolen, words lost, ignored and forgotten.

 

She was exposed to all of the morbid things
Corrupted lies, and uneven broken wings

 

All she wanted to know if happiness was true
This is what I saw, this was the girl I knew

 

And she left sudden, without a word,
Her existence she seen was too blurred

 

Before I could realize, she was gone and done
Did you ever wonder what life can become?

 

All she wanted to know if happiness was true
This is what I saw, this was the girl I knew..

Enter My Fear

All of the welcoming emotion suddenly dies.
and the darkness shrouds the land in only misery's cries.

 

Enter grief!
A timeless ocean. 
Trapped of despair, trapped without relief
Enter the moon!
Endless racing of the thoughts.
Including you alone, trapped dead inside an empty room

The dead is holding you stiff once more!
Staring into your eyes, never have you felt so gone before

The time comes again, to pit against all that is you
Will you ever find the part of you that is actually true?

Paint the sky bleak
Consider everything we cannot speak

The one painting with the sun I painted as a child is lost.
Reality has broken the barrier, this is the ultimate cost



 

I Walk An Endless Road

I walk endless an road

locked into a heavy load

Of these questions and fears

Gripping from it's unreasonable tears

 

As a car roars by

I look dead into it's light

Wondering where it leads

But just like that it's gone

just like another day

As I wake up to the sun's harsh light

 

I try not to look back

As I attempt to fill this crack

Of this hurt and wonder

Unstoppable, a storm of rain and thunder

 

As a car roars by

I look dead into it's light

Wondering where it leads

But just like that it's gone

just like another night

As I stay up to the moon's hypnotic might

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..

What Can I Say

Its Time To Rise,
But I've Fallen Down
Will You Help Me, Lend Me a Hand
Will You Pick Me Up, And Care For Me

Cause I've Lost Sight Of The Light
I'm Starting To Fall Into Pieces
Cause There Are Times
I Wanna Give Up
Cause There Are Times
I Just Don't Want To Try Anymore

 

But The Grace You've Given
Is Far Beyond What I Can Comprehend
Our Tears Fall Out Of Cries
But What Can I Say When I Need You
There's None Like You

 

Into The Darkness I Fall
But When I Fall
I Rise Up With Greater Strength
Here I Start To Doubt
But When I Hit The Ground
I Know I Won't Break
Because Of What You've Made Me
Stronger Than My Actions

 

You've Turned These Ashes
Into Sparkles Of Color And Sparkles Of Light
Thanks For Caring About Me, When I Was Selfish
Thanks For Healing Me, When I Was Hurting Myself
Oh What Can I Say To Give My Thankfulness
What Can I Do To Give You Praise
To Kneel Down On My Knees
And Praise The Lord For All That He Has Done

                 Jenny Jenkins, cute little girl, but she has had a tough life. Far worse than other lives, she never knew of a thing above poverty. T'is late December, and here she sits shivering next to two stone blocks trying to warm herself with a single, small, thin match stick. Of course to no avail, as her eyes stare at the flame, the match reaches the end of itself, leaving a little burn on her finger. She can't feel it though, she lost her sense of touch about an hour ago. All four limbs numb, heat leaving her body, she starts to feel sleepy. She slumps onto one of the stone blocks, resting her head under some writing. Curious, she tries to read what it says. "Here lies Miriam..." and with that, Jenny's eyes glazed over. Her eyes meeting my own. Her tiny, fragile flame had been extinguished. Little did she know, the two stone blocks were tombstones that read " Here lies Miriam and David Jenkins". As I watched this happen, I couldn't help but feel saddened. Normally I watch deaths happen, visit the poor souls, and continue with my job, but it's always harder with children. I visited her parents, now I've visited her. Well, let's see who's next on the list. Damn, another kid....

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Ok, so all of my poetry is posted so I figured I should put up my stories. This, and others which I will post on here, are in the persona of Death or the Grim Reaper watching these people die, and he keeps a sort of journal explaining what happened to them. And when they finally do kick the bucket, they see him because it is their time to go, but to other people it just looks like their eyes have glazed over and they have died. That's what I meant by "Her eyes meeting my own." And as always, criticism of any kind are welcome and appreciated.

I Don't Know What It Is
But There's Something About You
That's Beyond Words Of Amazing
I'm Sitting Here Thinking About You
You Don't Know How Much I Love You

 

Because It Hit Me Like A Wall
You Surprised Me
It Was Overwhelming
I Saw You With A Bright Smile
You Caught My Eye
I Don't Know Why
But I Can't Explain Otherwise

 

But In A Few Moments
I'm Here With You
My Doubts Fade Away
Because When I'm Holding You
It All Starts To Make Sense
I'm Thinking Will You Be With Me Forever
And Of Course Instantly It Becomes Crystal Clear
Destined Love Known To My Heart

 

Let Me Brush Up Against You
Let Me Hold Your Hand Beside Me
Let Us Sit Below The Stars Tonight
Let's Enjoy This Beautiful Starry Night
To Have Time To Bond With The Love Of My Life

 

My Love Is Burning With Intense Passion
With You Standing Right In Front Of Me
Close Enough To Hold Your Hands
I Blush Bright Like A Tomato
Not Because You Make Me Smile
But Because I'm In Love With You
And I Love You More Than Words
Could Ever Possibly Say Any Day

Underwater Trying Not To Drown

Sorrow filling my lungs

Choking on the tears

Crushing my heart

But I’ve never felt so alive

Underwater Trying Not To Drown

Cinders to ash, ash to smoke

My soul caught on the breeze

And left this empty corpse behind

Far behind and not looking back

 

Why can’t we go back to who we once were?

Sparks Fly And I'm Trying To Hide
Because There's Someone I Love
No It's Not Just A Feeling
But An Excitement Of Pleasure
Someone Who Sparks Up Your Face
Somebody Who Makes You Smile

 

He Doesn't Just Say You're Beautiful
He Actually Means Every Word
He Makes Your Face Blush Up
He Makes You Feel Comfortable Being Yourself

 

If I Could Have You In My Arms
I Would Hold You So Close
If I Could Have You With Me
I Would Snuggle You Right Up To Me

 

It May Be Raining Outside
But Let's Make The Best Of This Moment
When I'm Snuggling With You
I Feel Like I'm In Love, No
I Am In Love With You
I Can't Shake Off This Feeling
Because It's Real And I Love You
More Than Words Could Possibly Show

 

You Came Into My Life
And You Made Everything
Way Better Than It Is
I May Never See You
But I Pray I Will See You
Maybe Sometime In My Life

 

I Swear I'd Do Anything To Have You
Distance May Separate Us In Life
But I Would Die To Be With You
Maybe It's All Wish Thinking
But I'd To See Your Face
I'd Like To Be With You
If God Determines Us To Be Together
My Lovely Skyler...
