i would rather it was raining

it would match my

kind of human

it would match my

kind of mind

the sun beats on my shoulder

i can’t see why i should stay

 

i would rather it was raining

it would match my

lie of life

stop one two three

count the reasons

these cords pull me and i break

 

but i’m done with hope

i’m threadbare

throw our embers to the sky

throw your kindling too much smoke

and i can’t let it scratch my face

 

i would rather it was raining

it would match my

kind of human

it would match my

kind of mind

the sun beats on my shoulder

i can’t see why i should stay

Why I Write

I write because i need to

 

A beast resides within

 

And to let it smolder would be my downfall

 

It would tear my body beginning

with my heart then my soul and finally my already half crazed mind

 

All i wish is to empty myself of words

 

Hoping that it, my maddness would slip out amongst it all

 

And so i pour and pour hoping in silent prayer

to imprison to these cold blank pages

 

The lines it's bars and chains

 

Sometimes i half think iv'e answered every question i have only to return to same

 

And as i stare at my sloping warm led jots

 

It scares my half empty mind

 

This beast iv'e caught as a disease is wild and foriegn

 

And until i catch him to word and page

 

I'll keep writing

 

I write to free myself

 

To sift, to find, to escape, to hope and yes to rant and rave

 

I write because i need to

 

I write because i must

Fire

Folder: 
Fire

Trying to find my fire

 

A little spark is all i need

 

From match to matchbox

 

Strike it once

 

Strike it twice

 

What keeps me here

 

Trying to find my fire

 

The limp paper match

 

That lit once, all burnt out

 

Strike it once

 

Strike it Twice

 

What keeps me here

 

Trying to find my fire

why we try

day by day we make our way....

thru this hell on earth....

we stumble and fall....

but thru it all....

we work towards an end...

a way to make a better day for the ones we love....

in hopes that they will do the same until we make our way above....

Why I Love You

Folder: 
2011

How do I love thee?
There are too many ways
To sit here and count
So I’ll just write a few reasons

I love you because of
How sweet you are
How considerate you are
And for your patients

Yes your patients
Of dealing with me
Brain injury and all
Even though I may forget

The little things like
When your birthday is
I don’t forget you
Or anything like that

I love you, Master
For forever and a day
And that I will serve you
As long as I live

This was written for Tom ___. I may soon be able to put his last name here. So I will go through and change all these poems. Until then, you have to deal with it. :P
