|I am a warrior not the one you may think With fighting there's no link No I don't need any swords The only weapon I need are my words|
Off the cliff he/she walked
There are times in life when you feel miserable, when you feel down, when you feel like you're a disgrace, when you feel like you're a burden to everyone, when you feel it's because of you that the people around you suffer. It's not only you that goes through this, everybody does. From a young adolescent to a successful and aged adult. Everyone has these feelings at some point in their lives.
For some it may occur on a daily basis, or on a timely basis. These are the times when the heart becomes vulnerable and the mind starts wandering to find a way out. What's the way out? !S...
The struggles of his life
Written in the wrinkles on his face
The scars in his hands
Tell the stories of his journey
Bruises all over the body
Fought through the rough past
Life was not as easy
Brought up in a harsh reality
Had dreams, a lot
But chance of fulfilling, zero
Cause reality was the villain
The dreams, the hero
The life, the plot
Murderous, the reality
Gentle, the dreams
One triumphed over the other
In this case, reality was the victor
Every step of the way, needed assistance
Helpers, yes, but helping hands, none
Thoughts of tying the knot
Fed up, he thought he was done
Hey! I'm taking part in a poem competition and am having a hard time deciding. Could you help me on the title and give me any feedback possible, thank you.
Infatuations, feelings, crushes;
Escalated the spark to a fire.
From a slight liking,
To what people called " True Love".
A love compared to Romeo And Juliet;
One was the land, the other the sky,
As the sun set, the beautiful colours;
At the horizon , their symphony, magnificent.
Who knew, at the fall of dusk,
When the darkness filled in,
The beauty horizon was a mere mirage,
"The Dawn always follows the Dusk";
The people eagerly waited,
For their beauty of love to resurrect,
Their beauty never returned.
Their love was conc...
This deep dark fear of
Closing my eyes today
But not being able to wake up,
To open my eyes ever again
Bothers me everytime
Strikes the anxiety
Strikes the locked up cage
Of the demon I named Depression.
DEMONS IN ME
The clocks broke the silence
Frightened to the inner core
Stood alone with my thoughts
Terrified of the consequences
Dozed off,drowning myself
Within the pond of criticisms
Woke up to a new reality
A reality where I could visualize
My thoughts, my deepest darkest fears
Petrified of my own self I struggled
Struggled to free myself
From my inner demons that
I had seen in front of my eyes
With eyes deep red,the colour of blood
Frozen, couldn't move or even scream
Only the tears seemed to fall on its own
I saw the demons in me
Hurting the people close to me
With a smile on its faces
I wanted this all to be over
I needed help, I needed support ...
I've seen the spark of hope
In the darkness of life
I've seen the troubles of the people
Behind the fake smiles they wear
Cause I've been through it all
Wore a face mask
As if everything were fine
Beneath it all i was crying for help
I've screamed,I've shouted
But that's all in the mind
Never have I opened my mouth
To share about the real me
I'm broken, I'm bent
I'm striving,I'm almost dead inside
But that "almost" went away
When I tied the knot and let myself go
I let myself go without hesitation
Cause I succumbed in these feelings
I gave myself up as a sacrifice to life
I fell into the dark, the spark vanished
It's been a couple of years now
That I've been lurking i...
If I had a chance to say a few things to my yourself,. . .
I know you love her, you've written a song for her, yet you never talk to her, never call her. I don't know what's wrong with you. You keep thinking it's just a crush but it's not. You've had a crush on her for over 2 years, dude that's love. You say that you get satisfied by just seeing her but that's not true because you're me and I'm you. Come on. Grow up, man up. Throw the shyness and the nervousness aside. Tell her, confess your love to her. Else I can guarantee you this, you're gonna have a very hard time in your life. So come on confess it, tell her.
Too silent to shout at the world
Too sad to smile at the world
Yet the smile is seen from the mask i wear
Yet the screams are heard from the rolling of a tear
Why do we feel hollow and empty inside even when we're surrounded by people who love us and the positive thoughts ?
Why do we only take negative things seriously?
Why is one single moment enough to make one sad ?
I'm asleep with my eyes wide open,
I'm numb when I interact with the world,
I'm cruel when I help the ones in need,
I'm pessimistic when I get motivation;
Cause this mind's playing tricks on me,
My heart and my mind don't synchronize,
Dilemma between living and leaving,
Living for myself and leaving from myself;
I'm in the darkness when I step in the sun,
I'm far away from my own self when I'm awake,
I'm lost in the parallel dimension where,
The sun is dark and the moon brings light;
Cause the sun doesn't awaken the person in you,
The light it gives us creates the shadows, the darkness,
The only way the person in us can awaken is by,
Embracing the darkness within you and living for yours...
EYES OF THE DEAD
Danced around high expectations,
I was a normal human once,
Devoured by the murderous reality,
I am a different creature now.
Failed to see the beauty of my soul,
Tears rolling down from my eyes,
But a smile on my face cause,
The feelings in me are long gone.
Now all I see are regrets,
Regrets in the form of these scars,
These eyes see the sins behind every virtue,
See the frowns behind every smile,
See the demons inside every angel,
See the lies behind every truth,
See only the negative sides of life,
Cause the eyes that I have aren't normal,
The eyes that I have are the eyes of the dead.
In his smile she saw their beautiful future.
But she failed to identify the pain he was holding inside of him . She failed to see the tears in his eyes and the fears in his mind.
My eyes are waiting to see you,
Your beautiful face,
That joined my heart back to one,
And made me live a new life
Made me forget about the past
The things I've been through
Your voice, your eyes
Are you an angel in disguise?
I am sure that you were sent for me,
To guide me to a bright future,
To make me ferl that j am still alive,
Not only breathing but living a life,
To rebuild my fragmented soul
To turn my frown upside down
To see the world beyond my room
To make me feel loved and cared for
But now all the things are just opposite,
You dont want me in your life,
You dont want to talk to me,
The saddest part you removed me from you,
Was head over heels in love with you
But now I'...
Avoiding looking in the mirror
Because every time I do
I never see myself
I see the failures,
The fragmented soul
But not myself.
The pages she used to fill about her broken soul was very hard to tell looking on her innocent and lovely smile.
You're the proton to my electron.
It's all because of you,
Because of your positive energy that
I'm held intact, held together
These negative charges in me hasn't spread
Love, don't ever leave me
Cause without you,
Without this force of attraction
All these negative charges
Will spill out as radiation
As a pessimistic objection to the world.
Does a lion or a tiger give up when its prey is being taken away from it ? No, it fights back with all its might. Sometimes it fails to retrieve its hard earned meal but does that stop it from hunting for his prey? No.
Same goes for all of you reading, you fall down ... so what ? Get back up fight, be fierce, be stronger than before. Although sometimes we just don't have the energy to even move a single muscle in our body but does that mean that we give up ? I don't think so. We learn from our wrong doings from our foes. It doesn't matter how much time it takes for us to stand up what matters is that we tried and we are striving to live through the dark and light phases of life.
You've never given up on me. Even when I was down on the ground you gave me motivation. It's all because of you that now i am here still living a live through the harsh reality of life . You've always taught me to get back up when you fall down and to never doubt yourself and to always believe in yourself. To see that smile on your face and to make you proud makes me happy. Dedicated to my role model, my hero, my dad.
Everything I see now
Everything I feel now
Just won't be the same anymore
And it's all because of you
All because of your smile
That i fell in love with
All because of your eyes
That mystified my mind
Head over heels in love
Or was it just the feeling
Cause the next thing I knew
About me, I was a heartless man
Staring into the wind
Without you, only your thoughts
Without your presence, only your smile
That never ceased to leave my mind
As I looked upon the constellations
I joined the stars to name one after you
I texted you the name of the picture
You saw the message.
And as soon as the typing popped up
I was on cloud nine .
But it all went away when the sound of my alarm woke me up.
I even checked my phone to make sure.
But the saddest part was you hadn't even seen a single "Hi" that I'd sent you weeks ago.

The stories that never leave my mouth are told by the scars on my hands.
We were the poles of the magnets. Never did we attract each other only repulsion.
Is it because we were the same inside and we just couldn't fulfill each other or is it something else ?
