Strength

Fade

When the dawn ends,

You were leaving.

Cradled in your pain,

Winded.

You didnt want to fail yourself again.

Grassy dew-

Can't undo.

The feelings and your memories,

Stranded.

Stopped giving,

Upon living.

 

But she gave you,

What-

What you begged and desired,

For-

For continous love and,

Hope-

Hope, that you're not,

Alone-

Alone and on your own.

 

Faded bruises-

Your self abuses.

Traveling through your veins-

Burgundy, blue shades held within.

Your dead ends and disappointments-

Drifting from your memories.

Hoping for a chance to make a stand-

When.

 

She gave you,

Love-

Love stood the chance,

Above-

Above the stains and,

Never-

Never good enough,

For-

For the pain you seek to,

Cut.

 

She gave you love.

When you wouldnt love yourself.

Eating Spooks

Folder: 
Wulfman Adventures

I say rise old spooks

I am ready to defeat more of you

The less hostile I will be in company of other

The feel of leather armour cocooning me

Feels like a cool, whispering breeze against feverish flesh

It tickles, it is chilling

I am ready to swallow the spooks

Only to regain the strength they have stolen

Breaking Down

She's a minute away from breaking down

A second away from exploding

She knows in her soul she loves him

And that he's the one she should be holding

 

She longs to feel his soft touch

And yearns to taste his fruitful kiss

The loving gaze in his eyes

She truly does miss

 

Her soul feels so torn

And her heart feels ripped to the core

As she gasps for her breath

She begins to feel even more sore than before

 

She feels her life is no longer the same

As she screams into the night

She wants so bad to be with him

But he feels it just isn't right

 

Her world is crumbling down around her

As she looks up to the sky

Asking herself questions and wondering why

Why he doesn't love her?

Or understand just how she feels?

She's tried so hard to show him

But he doesn't seem to know it's real

 

She doesn't know what to do

She's done all she could

Hopefully one day her feelings

For him will be fully understood

 

Until then she'll remain in pain

Maybe one day he'll open his eyes

And understand he could have had something to gain

But for now she knows in her heart so true

That as long as their apart she'll always be blue

 

She knows the pain will never go away

Not until that one glorious day

When he comes to her to tell her my love

I am here

And here is where I will always stay

Paragon Paradox

The shrill of your voice gets louder;

Your river’s a poison,
That I gladly swim in.

Caught in a maelstrom,

Ideal torn to pieces,

Only the heart can be followed,

The mind merely breeds panic and caution.

 

So let the drum beat louder,

Don’t falsify your conscience to suit another,

Journeys end and begin on the same note,

A person has to lead in a dance between two people;
I’ve forgotten my position,
So take my hand,
I can be the strength for both of us,

Just not always for myself.

Just not when I’m on my own

Left to my own devices,
I spontaneously combust.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I can protect those I love, but I find I can allow myself to be the target. An imperfect paragon of virtue.

no regrets

 

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




who cares if there 

are flowers on my corpse 

if I'm dead?


if love is your intent

then bring me

some good memories

and things you learned 

to make your life easier

and more worth living.


wrap it up in a rusted coffee can

from some dark alley where babies lie in dumpsters

and place it somewhere all can see and be comforted

that someone thought about them, and cared

about why their lives ended, and tried to understand

not to punish, but to prevent it.

 

give me life in my death,

and not sorrow for

what you forgot to do

or not do, to prevent 

yourself from being hurt

on the day I leave here.


funerals are for the ones who are left here,

because the only thing I intend 

to leave you after material possessions

are divied out,

is the same thing since the day 

I first looked in your eyes,


the gratitude for having shared moments together.


we have all been dying since the day we were born,

and if we arrive at our final resting place in peace,

and not at the hands of violence,

then we have been granted more than enough

to say we have been blessed.

I spend my days now thinking what a beautiful soul you are.

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


...........

truth conquers all

 

 

 

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

 

days and nights meld into one,

the sun an moon spar for my attention,

9,10,11,12, they begin to merge and look the same,

life becomes deranged, monotonous,strange,

yet all needs miraculously see their place,

no race for me, a gentle hand guides my pace,

still time to smell the cool breezes that visit,

still joy that fills my heart with each smile so freely given,

a baby's breath upon my shoulder,

watching as all of life becomes one day older,

younger in newly inspired tones,

melodious sounds, like music roams

every cranny of space in my soul, 

rhythmic tides that flow in and out, 

like the bubbling caps of ocean foam,

encumbrances placed in my path 

become small, and me,

I become tall, 

and just have to smile inside at the fact

i have the strength to face it all.

"Vincit omnia veritas"

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

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This poem was inspired thinking about how when we live our truth, obstacles in our path may not dissapper, but they sure do get a whole lot smaller somehow.

Emancipation

Courageous is the man who speaks openly
Of his afflictions, his addictions,
Who is under the 'dark night of the soul',
And can corraberate his admissions
Exposed in gratitude, to understand the path
That led him to his personal hell,
And bring meaning to his suffering
In a way that raises his spirit to higher ground.

 

Through the journey of tracing the scars
Carved upon his soul by his weaknesses,
He procures and acclaims his strength
As the gracious hands of wisdom
Untether the ties that bound his sapience,
And he learns what it means to be free
Whilst donned in the shackles of the flesh
Binding him to an earthly existence.

Dying Species (from the inside, out)

Folder: 
human beings

The smile that bursts through the clouds of pain,
Is the smile from a place of strength,
Unknown to men who have become weak,
Caudled by the world of fantasy,
It bubbles up from his well within
Like an an earthquake,
It tells the world there is something more important,
Something we need to attend to,
And something far greater than the inconveniences
That life can often dish out in it's merciless ways,
And yet, when we see the smile,

We do not recognise this,
We cannot rejoice,
We cannot appreciate,
We cannot love,
Our instinct most often sought is judgement,
Then envy.

 

 

Sad...isn't it?

Bulletproof

Folder: 
Miscellaneous

Hateful words like sharp knives,

scratching away at the surface.

Disdainful eyes to my surprise,

Claiming I have no purpose.

My skin has hardened,

so has my poor soul.

My once optimistic mind,

Is now as black as coal.

Sticks and stones may break bones,

But words will surely hurt me.

Desperate to impress others,

show them how cold you can be.

Ugly, Stupid, Bitch, and Fatty

were many of my names.

Seeing who could make me cry,

was their favorite game.

But that solemn little girl,

Who used to shrink away in fear.

Has long since died from tears she cried,

That child is no longer here.

Say what you have to say,

try your best to get beneath my skin.

I will remain unaffected,

so let your games begin.

I will no longer try to hide,

To try to avoid the things you say.

For all those people who targeted me,

They will surely pay.

They expected me to crumble and fall,

to be crushed by simple words,

Understand my weakness is gone,

I am no longer that quiet nerd.

I am stronger than I was back then,

I am way stronger than my youth.

So keep on spraying hateful words,

My skin is bulletproof.
