ending

Not one single tear

 

 

Not a tear will out a sigh,

Not a tear will hold goodbye,

 

Not a tear will grace my cheek,

Not a tear for then I'm weak,

 

Not a tear will drip and fall,

Not a tear to bawl then call,

 

I will have the driest eyes,

Colder than december brides,

 

Yes I will know no tears for you,

For if I'm asked- I'll answer who!?

Potential

Folder: 
2017

I am smaller than

you know yourself to be

 

hold me closer than

you know how to

 

hold you closer than

I think I have

 

and they press against

the walls and

whisper about

potential

 

I will put it right under their eyes

I have cared less

with

more to lose

 

I am not

scared of falling

I am terrified of

hitting

the ground

 

so many days I can’t remember

and even more I can

they all last

with you

so I will love like I

will never

 

land

Forbidden

Folder: 
2016

As a tangle of forbiddens

slip through my fingers

half a tree grows in seconds

and an atom splits the night

 

If a sparrow's breath can't get by

how will my screams pass

subside as the cliff drags me,

I'm eternally last

 

Rushes of blood linger

I'm half cold, half too alive

to bear this asymmetry

falling from the midnight sky

 

My future is

forbidden,

my every move

a curse

My eyes are closing

for better or

for worse

 

My life is

forbidden,

my breath gone

to its grave

So my screams

pierce the mountains

hoping I can be saved

 

When I creep through the shadows

I reach for sunlight but then

the bridges to otherworlds

slip past me again

 

We used to be magic,

we used to be marvelous

Glittering, guiding the lights

we knew they'd follow us

 

Now I'm the last of the lanterns,

I'm coming undone

I'm straying from the path

letting go of everyone

 

My future is

forbidden,

my every move

a curse

My eyes are closing

for better or

for worse

 

My life is

forbidden,

my breath gone

to its grave

So my screams

pierce the mountains

hoping I can be saved

L.E.V.I.

From nightmare to nightmare ,

wake up from a nightmare,
 And enter this nightmare,
 it's never a dream,
 
 if ever at all ,
I stand I fall, 
Berate befall,
It's Never a dream ,
 
 
Control is a lie,
I live I die ,
L. E. V. I.,
It's never a dream,...(there is more but to slowly unleash the damn of me is taken well)

DISTRACTION

THY, SAVE ME
THIS UNHOLY SCRIPTURES
UNDOING MY LIFE
BEES FLED FROM THEIR HIVE
THE FALLING OF LAVES STRIVE.
SWIMMERS FAIL TO DIVE
MY MIINDSHED ESCAPES,
HEART THROBBING WITH AGONY
SINNERS, THY DON'T FRICK THEM

UNTIL THE END
MIND PLAYING TRICKS
JOURNEY SIGNS TO CLOSE
THOUSAND HOURS PAVED
TILL NOT HAVE
PULSES CEASE TO UNRUN

THOU, I'M UNDONE
I'D MILES TO REGRADE
I GOT ENOUGH
THOU GOT PLENTY
YOU ARE THE SAVIOUR
I’M UNMODEST
YOU’LL PROTECT ME
UNTIL THE END.

This is what I want

I look around and all I see is happy couples that I envy
Wanting the smiles, the laughter wishing that's what we can be
But reality is a bitch and all we have is constant fighting
Going to bed not the way we intend is not the right thing
We don't want to end it because the feeling of it is amazing
Seeing each other with other people is just heart taking
You say its your fault and that I deserve better
You're a milestone in my life, I will not forget her
My choice is to stay together hoping we can be a phoenix
I want this movie to have a happy ending cause I've never seen it
Good in the beginning and now we're in a struggle
Hopefully this will end well, watch a movie then we'll cuddle
We may not be Hollywood actors, but the tears are real
The love ain't a prop, if you stay tuned it will be revealed
Our script isn't written in stone, so we still have a chance
Its up to us whether we want to nurture it like a plant.

Goodbye

How do I learn to say goodbye?
Learn to let you go? Learn not to cry?
Is it possible to smile without you in my life?
Can there be joy when I won’t be your wife?
I found my other half, my missing piece, my soul mate.
But sadly it took too long, we missed our chance, we’re too damn late.

I loved before – or thought I did – just to be thrown away.
You gave your heart only to find yourself used at the end of the day.
I poured out faith and was subjected to abuse in return.
You lowered defenses in complete trust but found it hadn’t been earned.
I lost myself, my spirit was crushed, I didn’t know how to begin.
You felt alone, completely abandoned, built a wall to avoid hurt again.

Then I found you, you found me, a new bond began to form.
We both were cautious – overly so – fearing the link would be torn.
My heart began to open again. A seed began to bud.
The flower grew, started to bloom the fragrant blossom of love.
You felt a pull, were drawn to me, found your spirits weren’t so low.
But not enough to move you from the defensive stance you know.

I’ve tried to be patient, kind to a fault, waiting for you to see
that the kind of love you’ve waited for was waiting for you with me.
You ignited the spark I’d thought long gone, an ember began to glow.
The flames need just the smallest encouragement to flare, leap and grow.
But the tender care that ember needs, you don’t seem to want to give
and I’m not sure if this limbo is a state in which I can live.

I love you deeply, with all my heart, and welcome that love’s embrace.
But you can’t get out of your own way to even look upon my face.
For if you did, I know for once exactly what you’d see—
that for the first time in so many years, someone brought joy to me.
My dedication is unquestioned, my motives couldn’t be more pure.
But you seem to be ready to walk away and that wounds me to my core.

I know inside I deserve devotion and love to come my way.
The voice of doubt inside my head is telling me no matter how I pray
I may not get those things from you, regardless of how I feel.
That thought makes my soul grow dark. I cannot believe that’s real.
Not just because of what it means for me, but because of what it means for you.
I don’t understand how you can walk away from one whose love is true.

Can someone help me to comprehend the thoughts inside your head?
Is it that you’ve been tormented so much that your ability to feel is dead?
How can you not want someone who would put you first in her heart?
Why would you choose to stand all alone? Why would you stand apart
from someone who wants nothing but to care for you, to be here forevermore?
And all you’re asked for in return is to lay down your weapons of war.

I don’t have the answers, that much is clear, and no one can give them to me.
And as much as it is going to break my heart, I soon will let you go free.
Not because my love has changed, diminished, faded, or is gone.
But because I cannot stay like this – my soul is not that strong.
There’s only so much uncertainty that I can continue to take.
There’s a limit to how much time I can give while you leave me here to wait.

So I’m trying to find the way to let you go from my life.
I’m searching for the method that will cause the least amount of strife.
I want to have no argument, no fights, no tears, no pain.
Yet I know my efforts to let you go will be somewhat in vain.
For even if today is the last day I see your face or hear your voice,
A part of my heart will forever be yours. In that I have no choice.
