The forces within Are in constant battle. The good always wins – Or so you thought. But the veil has been lifted Revealing a barefaced you You with your angel wings Deserve no halo. In truth, you hide That dark little side.
You seem to find power In the silence of my thoughts. You think you exude knowledge In the thunder of your words. But you must know, as I do – Your talk is all fluff. The stillness you hear Is my mind picking that up.
I know you want it better I know you want it best. But if the way to perfection Is killing me with your Punctuations – Let’s stop right now So my life won’t end. And you get to keep yours.
You wear your heart out too much, Your emotions a neon show. Is there a way you can hide them? They look so raw. You say you’re being honest You think you’re being just. They get what they see But do they honor your trust? You can’t just open all your cards And let them play as they please. Hold some aces to your heart They deserve much less.
My mind runs the words Over and over again. My heart aches to burst From all the raging feelings. The things I long to say The truths you need to hear, I fear that they just may Be your heartbreaker.
Big word, I know. Too many letters wasted On something that Doesn’t really matter. But I dare say though – It’s a word well-spent Describing you.
My emotions are running wild I can’t seem to rein them in. They just flow out my skin Like lava when a volcano erupts. I can see the smoke belching Out my ears and out my nose. My head aches like it’s on fire And ready to explode. My heart is contracting It’s pumping black, not red. I am so mad at you And you don’t even know.
It appeared like a star In a very dark night. It promised like a god That you will be all right. It lured you like a temptress To a place you’ve never been. It stirred you to a restlessness Such as one you’ve never seen. It warmed you up to a vision Where you live your heart’s desires. It then left you disillusioned When it vanished as you caught fire.
It was a conversation I wish I never had. A dare against convention I thought was brave and rad. I let you see my future It was a big mistake. A call for you to nurture Left me reel at its wake. A year into that moment, I’d like to mark the day I chose to be transparent But you took it away.
Nothing tests The strength of our ties More than adversity. In happier times Our affections are easy. But in bad, we let the pain Hold us in a bind And we lose sight Of the day the sun Takes over the night – We break loose, We let go; We lose heart To see it through.
