It’s been almost a year since I’ve posted. I’m 21 now. My heartache for my passed friend still stands, but I’ve moved. I’ll be writing more.<3 -Damien

Not At All

They say over time
It gets easier
But I still got feelings for her
And times fixed nothing

I still know her name
And I still see her face
There's a familiar smell
And a familiar taste

It leaves me conflicted
And it leaves me torn
With a pain in my heart
And in my side, a thorn

It's better to love
And not to at all
They can build you up
Only to push, and watch fall

Love Never Happened

I was thinking about you when I got home
Was gonna send you a text
So I picked up the phone
And when I saw the screen, and the other girls name
I realized that shit between us just was not the same

So I set down my phone
And picked up my guitar
And decided I wanted to play you a song

You know baby girl, I gave you my heart
I knew that I loved you right from the start

But everything in life will come to and end
And all we can do is start it again
So put on your shoes and pick up your keys
Wipe off the tears and dust off your knees

Now another years past
And your still on my mind
I try to forget you All of the time
But no matter how hard I try
You stay right there in ...

TE AMO

Sticks and Stones

They asked me where I got this gun
As I sit underneath the sun
I told them that it doesn't matter
Why do they care who's world is shattered

Worried as they might be
As I sit beneath the tree
Playing with the gun I found
Oh, gun shots, such wonderful sounds

They look at me with shock on their face
I know they think I'm a disgrace
They still don't know where I got this gun
This whole day has been quite fun

The others refuse to get too close
Too afraid I'll put some holes in their clothes
They haven't realized they caused this show
Oh, and what a show they have caused

Ain't it a damned thing?

When we reach the end
It is only then
That we know
That blowing a hole
In the side of our head will not fix

A damn thing

A damn thing to fix
Unlike stones and sticks
Emotions are not skin
And it is only then
That saying sorry will not fix

A damn thing.

Playing Games

I told you when we started
I didn't want to leave you broken hearted
But at the end of the day,
I'm just playing games

You gave me your heart
You made me your life
But I was told you I wasn't making you wife
I've just been playing games

Now look at where you are
And look at where you were
If you had left when I told you from the start
Maybe you wouldn't have shattered your heart

From card tricks and illusions
Some how you made this delusion
That you were loved and told that you weren't
Baby girl, you were told it was only a game

Coin Toss

You know it is depressing
When what you got is suppressing
You say you want out
But baby, it's a coin toss

What you got was once real
And they say that heart you did steal
But it seems it all turned to ash
So baby, it's a coin toss

You don't want to break it
What could be and what was
But you can't break what's already broken
So baby, its a tossed coin

Heads or tails
Win or lose
Either way your heart gets bruised
So baby, don't worry 'bout that coin toss

My entire life I've been told to just do what I'm told, and get it over with.
But I'm not going to just sit there and let shit I don't like happen.
I won't let a teacher teach my generation that two plus two is five.
That left is right and right is wrong.
I won't let them fuck up out thinking, and prevent us from thinking for ourselves.
We have to take a stand for what we feel is right, and not for what they told us to write.
Stand up, and stand for what you believe in

Why Not Say Fuck

Some times you're stuck
Inside of a rut
Not much to do
So why not say fuck

Inside of your head
Youre mentally dead
But no one can see it
So why not say fuck

Everyday's a little lower
Everyday is processed a little slower
But it never makes a difference
So why not say fuck

Mentally passed
Physically drained
Tired of it all
So. Why. Not. Say. Fuck.

See It Through

Everyday we wake up
Most of us with a coffee cup
One of them may be you
And everyday we see in through

Once in awhile we may fall flat
But who's to say we've lost our hat
One at a time, one foot per shoe
And everyday we see it through

They talk about schooling
But who are they fooling
We laugh at them, and ask them who
But everyday we see it through

Life may be long
Love may be strong
But for someone with the likes of you
Everyday you must see through.

This Unknowing Path

We express our love with such devotion,
Our lovers often become frightened.
Actions always show so much emotion,
That true intentions become enlightened.
The thought of spending eternal with one,
Will always make you second guess this life.
To build a family, with daughter and son,
You may get cold feet when making her wife.
Saying "I do", and "Till death do us part."
Realizing forever is a long time.
By saying those words I gave you my heart,
But forever may cause love to unwind.
Love is scary, and very unknowing.
The trip will be long; make it worth going.

Growing Up

One random day you're born
Thrown into a world of storm
Days pass by, and turn into years
Which turn to smiles and tears

Six years old
And you get told
You have to go to school
So you don't grow into a fool

Twelve years old
You still don't understand
What life is about
Or how you should have it planned

You come up on eighteen
About this time you're coming to age
Finishing school, and walking the stage
Hey man, you're growing up

Figure It Out

When I write how I feel
My emotions, you steal
I put myself into openness
My thoughts, completely motionless

I try to explain what I'm thinking
Put this stress into words
Trying to open you mind
To understand what's in mine

But you don't even realize
You just waste breath when you criticize
I don't need to hear what you have to say
When you don't understand what I feel every day

I feel as if I do not belong
I shape myself to simply fit in
I've played every role in the book
From silent guy, to nice guy, and what you consider a "crook"

But who gives a fuck
Just go to school and pass
But explain to me this
What's the point in going to class

To get a degree
To get a diplom...

Let's Talk

Lets talk about the world
Talk about how it should be
Let's just listen to each other
Instead of run and flee

Let's talk about our problems
Instead of hide and bottle them
Let's try find the solution
Instead of hide the issue

Let's talk about our future
To shine light on what is bleak
Let talk about our children
Their the ones who have to fix our leak

Let's talk about how we messed up
Let's talk about how we ruined it
Let's talk about how we should fix it
Instead of how our children should

Let's talk

Mundane and Repetitive

The mundane and repetitive
Makes it hard to view what's ahead of him
Everyday it's the same old rut
Never quite able to make the cut

Never left and never right
The same old thing always in sight
What's the point, you ask yourself
When your always looking at the same old shelf

Same old story, from the same old book
Same old food from the usual cook
Everyday the same old route
Pull your hair, tear it out

Just one slip
Is all it takes
From mundane and repetitive
To extraordinarily selective

Dear Grandma Neighbors

You lived a long life
You lived to eighty-eight
You continued your journey
All the way to heavens gate

You leave behind friends and family
But the roads of fate have spoken
You arrived to your exit
We want you to have this token

A token of love
A token of faith
A token of gratitude
And a token of appreciation

Dear Grandma Neighbors
All we want to say
We hope to see you
Some sunny day

I love and miss you Grandma Neighbors

What's The Point

What's the point
When you have know will
When you wake up
And depressions all you feel

What's the point
To try and succeeded
When you have all this air
But struggle to breathe

What's the point
To live, love, and learn
When the world you know
Is starting to burn

Can someone tell me
Show me the light
At the end of the line
Losing this fight

What's the point?

What To Say

Being with you
My mind goes blank
Doesn't matter, night or day
I never know quite what to say

Words don't come
Just a blank slate
When I look in your eyes
I never know quite what to say

Day or night
Wrong or right
Left or right
I never know quite what to say

Sit and think
Ponder and wait
Realization hits
I think I figured out what to say

Baby girl, I love you

Rules and Stipulations

They say to keep it clean
I say to stay unseen
Mind your own damn business
This is not the life you live, miss

Say yes ma'am and no sir
Make sure your words do not slur
So many problems and frustrations
With all these rules and stipulations

From west coast to east coast
Dialog changes the most
With all these rules and stipulations
Shit changes with each location

Rule one and rule two
Three, four, and five
There's not much differentiation
With all these rules and stipulations

Same Old Shit

In this life we live and learn
But in the end we all get burned
From top to bottom, front to back
Same old shit with a different mask

There are ones who love, and ones who don't
You have ones who are real, and ones who front
From top to bottom, front to back
Same old shit with a different mask

Black and white, no grey in between
Everyone playing the king and queen
From top to bottom, front to back
Same old shit with a different mask

We all talk big, but never can do
More mouth than action will never get through
From top to bottom, front to back
Same old shit, with a different mask

Beginning to End

Life is a journey
Enjoy the whole path
Everyday is a gift
From beginning to end

Love is a blessing
Filled with happiness and pain
Fighting for and against you
From beginning to end

Family
What more can you say
There for you every step of the way
From beginning to end

Start to finish
First to last
Love, life, and family
From beginning to end

Frustration

I can't put it to words
You make me feel ill
I put up with you best I can
How much frustration do you think I can stand

Your actions are ignorant
No I don't care
Keep it to yourself
Keep the frustration over there

You destroy my emotions
Whittle my feelings
I lay in bed staring at the ceiling
All I can think of is frustration from you

I try to decipher
I try to understand
I try to comprehend
But frustration is always the end

Poetry

It's nothing more than how you feel
Lines and stanzas
Syllables and rhyme
Just keep it all in time

Those are guide lines
It doesn't all have to rhyme
It should display your emotion
And sometimes it doesn't always rhyme

Emotion is wild
And your poetry can reflect that
Put your words on paper
Put yourself out there

Lines and stanzas are the basics
Who says it can't be one stanza
One stanza with forty lines
Forty lines that do not rhyme
Poetry is emotion
Poetry has pattern
Repeat, rhyme, and rhythm
Three R's to success

Just remember the basics
Feelings
Rhyme
Pattern
Poetry is nothing more than your thoughts on paper

Thinking

Burning my time
Wasting my life
Idle mind
Spending it all thinking

Worried heart
Sickening stomach
Stressed emotions
All caused by thinking

Too much to handle
None of it reality
All of it in your mind
Living life, just thinking

Worry and stress
Anxiety and nausea
None of it reality
All of it from thinking

With or without you

The days at its end
Tomorrow will begin
Life will continue
With or without you

I could be happy
This smile could be real
This laughter might exist
With or without you

One day there will be a family
A house and car too
My career will come to me
With or without you

We need another in out lives
And that other could be you
But I'll be happy either way
With or without you

Infinite

When the sun starts to set
And the day turns to night
The air gets colder and stars are in sight
What you see up above is infinite

When you see their face
And your stomach starts to flutter
Your brain freezes and heart stutters
What you feel for them is infinite

When you've been up all day
And your thoughts can not quiet
Everlasting imagination exists
What your mind holds in infinite

When your schedule is filled
And you have no free time like old times
Just complete the task at hand
What your future hold is infintie

The Crowd

Walking the halls
Sitting in class
Going to lunch
You're in the crowd

Going to work
Shopping in public
Sitting at home
You're in the crowd

Rebellion and revolt
Ignoring authority
Leading a revolution
You're leaving the crowd

Gunshots and explosions
War and ashes
Rebuilding and evolving
You're leading the crowd

Brainless

The population is asleep
The minds of most are closed
The brains of the same erode
Open your eyes, you're brainless

You sit in the class
You memorize but do not learn
They speak with redundancy
Open your eyes, you're brainless

Believe what they say
Social media and propaganda
We are the good, and they are the bad
Open your eyes, you're brainless

Black and white
There are no shades of gray
Right and wrong is the only way
Open your eyes... You're brainless

Silence

In the dead of night
You hear it
The sound that one can love
Silence

The sound that signifies so much
The sound of so many
The sound of many meanings
Silence

The sound of surprise
The sound of death
The sound of shock
Silence

It's the sound we look for
But when you call out it leaves
As soon as it arrives it vanishes
The sound is a mystery to me

>Silence<

Untitled

They tell me what I write is sad
They say that it's depressing
But my words are my emotions
And to express them is a blessing

You may not understand
The words I put on paper
But there is no hidden messages
Or secrets behind the vapor

Just read and listen
Hear and understand
The words that are in front of you
There is no slight of hand

No need to worry
Or to stress
Just read the words on paper
And your emotions lay to rest
