Shine Bright

Posted: April 28, 2013 in Poem

Starry Heaven
Starry Night
Don’t take
My only soul
Tonight

Pure and White
My soul of Might
Hardships
Chaotic
Dysfunctional

That’s right
It’s tough
It’s Mighty
It fights
All because
I lived
Through
My life

I don’t
Want the stars
To take
My life

I don’t want
To join
That team
Of light
The ground
The people

It may be
Evil
Not right
But I love
Its caring
Light

It’s dimmer
Not that bright
But it’s just right
For my
Everyday
Life
I don’t want
To Shine Bright

Night Shade

Posted: April 28, 2013 in Poem

A perfect black
A perfect cover
The best shield

Why do people lie?
Why steal?
Why cheat?

It’s all
Because
Of their own state
The state
Of confusion
Of delusion
Of a big mess

That shade of black
Are your lies
Your fears
And your crimes

Hiding behind
That black shield
Won’t save
Or protect

Be truthful
Be real
Be that better white

If not,
You can’t
Be saved
Or brought back
Once those shades
Of perfect black
Swallows you
Completely whole

Even white
Or gray
Not that crimson red
Nothing will
Take you out
Of that
Oblivion

Truth

Posted: April 21, 2013 in Poem

Difficult but not
Full yet empty
The pain
The suffering
It’s just not working

No heart
No pain
Maybe the aim
But it’s an enigma
Never knowing
Never finding
It’s just a pain

Give up
That’s right
But at the same time
Let’s fight
There’s no lines
Neither are there rhymes
Build and construct
Doesn’t come outta nowhere

You’ll know I’m right
When it’s time to fight
And become blight
When you have lost your right

No pain
No suffering
Lies fed to the mind
To make you blind
See the world outside
And you’ll understand
By that time

From the inside out

Posted: April 21, 2013 in Poem

I can’t hear the sounds
The busy roads
As the cars run by
Never coming back
Deafening

I’m nothing
Everything is black and white
Or that’s what I think
Blinding

What am I feeling?
No clue
I’m just a mannequin
You make my thoughts for me
No feeling

No hearing
No sight
No breathing
No touch

The glossy eyes
The blank look
Looks like death
From the inside out

It’s complicated

Posted: April 21, 2013 in Poem

So today i felt like being a little bit poetic. Tell me how you like this.

It’s complicated
It’s tough
You could say that it’s
Just plain dumb….

But you need it
It’s necessary
It’s complex
Without it….

You’re just a dead
Lump of junk

You say you don’t need it
You say you’re on you own
But it just hits you like a gun
Not avoidable
Not going to be gone

It’s always there
It starts out bad
And ends up fun
But you need the heart
The tools and a push
To do the right thing
And then you’re done

You’ll know what I mean
When it comes
It’ll show up one day
And you won’t be dumb
Knowledge is key
In these hard times
But most of all you need
Your heart and mind
