POETRY Effortless work and hard relaxation

  1. This is the start of a HORRID, twisted journey.

    Enter if you must...

    Child Left Behind

    Tiny fingers of a young child,
    grasping around your hand,
    With a temperament so mild,
    But a hand drags its way and
    Nothing is there anymore,
    Child gone in it's grave,
    There's a certain common lore
    That the child had asked to be saved,
    But the knight in shining armor never came,
    And there was no one to save it from your horrid ways,
    How long, must I wait until I'm the same?
    I've asked myself over and over if there's a place
    to go to be able to block out what I know is going to happen,
    No matter what I do, I know I'll see that gravestone soon

    Outside the Window

    I hear the incessant tapping from across the room,
    The rain knocking at the window to be let in,
    It's tiny finger tips spread out as they tap a tune
    across the glass and then slide down, dark sin
    covering the light of day and swallowing the night,
    It's hands, morphing into icy pellets, pummel the pane
    Demanding to be let in and allowed the chance to fight
    for the chance to consume my mind, nothing'll be the same,

    Ignore the tapping - the wind howling- the pipes humming - and the walls creaking

    Ignore the screeching need and the mindlessness of it's demands, shove it aside

  2. Child Left Behind: is really deep and rhetorical~ Or that's how it came off to me. I really the way you put emotions and conveying your feelings before rhyming -- that's really deep. "to go to be able to block out what I know is going to happen" seems a little wordy to me. I kind of stumbled over that line, but over all I got a very dreary, haunted sort of feeling from the poem ! :)
  3. Thankies Saku!
  4. I hate cold weather
    The cold stings and bites my skin
    I shall put on socks

    I want a nickle
    I have a quarter though why
    don't I have five cents?

  5. Try and guess what THIS is about!

    Don't Fuckin' Wink at Me

    I'm the bride's niece,
    You're the groom's man,
    I know you don't know that
    I have a boyfriend

    You winked at me before the wedding
    you copped a feel when I helped my gramma out
    You blatantly stared when kissed my uncle on the cheek
    I was less than pleased to see that you were watching

    To be honest, sir, I was more interested in the guy to the left
    I was told he's a fighter pilot that, upon carriers, he lands jets,
    He is taken, and that's why I was interested, because it was cute,
    two stripes, one star on his coat, and the girl's wearing it to boot,

    You see, I don't like guys who reek of more booze than I did,
    I don't like to be tempted in that manner or way, please,
    There's just one thing that I'll ask:
    Please take your hand off my knee

    Just please stop hitting on me.
  6. ... I'm sorry...

    Show Spoiler
    The paint chipped off my fingernail and now looks like a mushroom cloud

    It's a disaster on my left hand
    My index finger has a nuclear explosion
    Makes me think of who I'm with
    And who I want to be with forever

    But the paint will eventually all chip away
    or glossed over with new paint
    So does it make me bad to want to move
    into a corner of my world I haven't seen?

    Mascara runs and melds with the black eyeliner
    my eyes look greener than usual
    Does that make me look greedy, or is it
    the fact that I have thoughts in my head
    that possibly have an undiagnosed motive?

    Is it the troubled bloody heart that betrays me
    by always skipping a beat when I'm touched?
    That quivers with joy when he's near
    and shrivels when I feel he's not
    and beats for half of my heart
    and half of his,
    and half of his heart beats for mine
    I'd hope.

    But I feel as though, that the half-a-heart I still have
    is tethered to kit strings and lead around to try and follow him
    to anyplace he might go
    Does that make me heartless?

    I have to cut the strings and stitch it all back together
    my body's too frayed to sacrifice half of a heart for someone else
    when it feels like their heart is too busy taking care of others
    But I fear, that in taking that part back, I'll wound them
    But I can't worry about that now

    I have to go
    I have to get away
    I have to try and get this right
    I have to take care of them, and them to take care of I
    And in such measures, I have to turn my back on the one who saved my life
    I have to step back, because, honestly, I can't follow any further

    These green eyes that try their hardest not to cry, were the ones that he saw
    this skin, frayed as it is, was what he felt when I hugged him
    these lips are what hurt the most, touching him once and wanting to touch again
    This voice is what he heard in the darkest of nights, now quakes and cracks
    This little half of heart is falling apart, and I need the other half back before its
    too late

    Give it time to regrow,
    let the paint all chip off so that you can paint it again
    restart, refresh, renew
    It hurts to have to strip it all down so that I can start over
    It hurts to know when I hear his voice next, it might be pained
    and I'll be the cause

    I swear, I wait on the end of this burning bridge until you put out the fire
    but you have to let all the ropes burn, and the wood blacken
    I'll wait through it all, but promise me one thing, and never forget this, please

    If a elephant has such a strong memory
    and an "elephant's foot" is so beautiful to you
    Then take the memory, and the long half-life, and know this:
    Your love is radioactive, and the memory of you is strong
    So even if a hundred years go by, that half-life means that there's always love left
    for you
    and that even if a thousand years go by,
    I'd never forget a single thing about you
  7. Iwaku is a
    Place for friends and fun times
    No emos allowed

    I am currently
    naked, sitting on my bed
    I am now hungry

    Paorou is crazy
    and Asmo scares me
    I am a newbie


    October's Angel comes on four wings and leaves on three
    she tears one away to color the trees
    come winter she always returns
    for the feathered limb that she yearns
    during spring and summer - she slumbers
    her body healing
    But every autumn she is peeling
    that forsaken wing away again.
  9. Blue Snow

    As the flakes fall
    I think of it all
    I just wanna stand here in the cold
    As long as I have you
    There's nothing anyone can do

    I'll sit here
    there's nothing to fear
    curled in your arms
    Letting the blue snow fall
    bare to it all
  10. In the Twilight

    In the twilight
    I see your face
    in the twilight
    I know my place
    in the twilight
    it's you and me
    in the twilight
    it's where we'll be
    In the twilight
    softly sleeping

    From the Heart

    Love is an obsession of mine
    Sometimes I just horde the hearts
    I used to love to put everything on the line
    And then tear them apart

    I was so angry once
    but now I see
    the one who was afraid of being broken
    was me

    Storm Clouds

    A flash of lightening cracks through the sky
    And I sit, watching from my place in the crowd
    all of us seeming to wonder the question of "why"

    We sit in these spots
    crafted to hold us still
    we're stopped by the locks
    and slowly, it becomes a thrill

    The storm crackles and roars
    it wavers and blows
    then the wind swiftly soars
    and the rain starts to flow

    A piano plays
    as time frays
    as we lay
    here under all the lights

    The sparkly silver
    Little tiny builders
    Start to shiver
    as the time freezes

    I've come to know
    I want you alone
    and I love you
    To your very soul
  12. <3 Awesome pieces.
  13. Shank ya, Fluffers. ^.^
  14. Desperation

    I sit here waiting for a sign
    I just wish it all was a fable
    Grab the jumper cables
    Shock myself into being fine

    I don't have your dictation
    in this desperation
    Hoping for salvation
    But all we get is orations
    words that choke the air

    I wish I could take it all back
    Say I'm sorry for the mistakes
    the paper is turning black
    as mascara turns to tears

    Can't stop hearing your voice in my head
    now I wish that all other life was dead
    if only I could figure out how to make this right
    then we wouldn't have to be alone at night

    I'm sick of the fights
    I'm sick of the tears
    I'm sick of wasting all of our years

    I fucked it up
    I'm to blame
    this shame

    I talked big
    I gave little
    I wore you out
    I wore you down
    I thought it was fun
    I guess we're done.

    I'm just sitting here
    wishing it wasn't over
    But now I fear
    you were the only clover
    I've no luck left

    I don't want to feel
    I don't want to loose
    beg for a deal
    Where's the truce?

    You called me crazy
    memory's gone hazy
    Already knocked back a drink
    I just don't want to think

    I'll wait for you here
    as long as you want
    don't let me disappear
    Pain that we flaunt

    Sticks and stones may break my bones
    but words texted on the phone
    will never leave me

    I'm a piece of modern art
    I make no sense
    and people don't know why I'm here

    I guess in the end this is what I feared
    I'm trying my hardest not to just sit here
    I'm just trying to persevere

    I'd give it all away to take it all back
    I'd want to look in the mirror and fix all the cracks
    I'm sorry for all that happened and all that's said

    but at the end of the day

    Call me if you get too stuck in your own head



    All I wanted to do was stare into those eyes
    but my judgment fried when I found it unwise
    Now I just feel like we're both left to die
    Boy, please, just come back around
    lemme see your eyes

    They used to scare me
    The emotion they would hold
    would have me under your control

    There were so many colors
    so many emotions

    Holding your guitar
    you were like a star
    yeah, just like a star
    leading me to where you are
    I wonder what you are
    You're my north star

    All I wanted to do was stare into those eyes
    but my judgment fried when I found it unwise
    Now I just feel like we're both left to die
    Boy, please, just come back around
    lemme see your eyes

    Yeah, lemme see your eyes

    I wanna just talk this out
    You know I'm devout
    I believe in you
    but it's beyond any doubt
    I have to reroute
    I have to reroute
    I'll die to survive and I gotta get us out

    Damn the rest to hell
    but I just stood and watched as you fell
    (just stare, just stare there and watch)
    Seems like our hearts are about to have a cold spell
    I just want you to do well

    All I wanted to do was stare into those eyes
    (Don't wanna listen to those lies)
    but my judgment fried when I found it unwise
    (You're the one person I'd never despise)
    Now I just feel like we're both left to die
    (Can't we just compromise?)
    Boy, please, just come back around
    (All these words I try to choke down)
    lemme see your eyes
    (I never want to see you cry)

    Your hazel eyes will haunt me
    Until the day that I die

    All I wanted to do was stare into those eyes
    but my judgment fried when I found it unwise
    Now I just feel like we're both left to die
    Boy, please, just come back around
    lemme see your eyes
  15. <3 Beautiful, TK. There's so much emotion. Do let me know if you ever need to talk.
  16. Gust of Wind

    The sun was out
    There was no doubt
    We were together all the time
    I always thought you’d be mine

    I guess I never thought it was a gust of wind
    I guess I had always hoped it would mend
    But it became clear when the love started to descend

    There was a storm approaching
    I guess I was just hoping
    That you’d have the sense to hold on
    And not let this love go wrong

    Why’d you have to be a gust of wind
    When I wanted a gentle breeze?
    You got your wish, babe, you win,
    I’ve enough sense to see
    I can’t fight a storm and I can’t fight you
    Nah, I don’t even want to try for you

    You turned your back
    You started the lightening
    I felt my heart crack
    You’d never know how frightening
    It simmered out and it boiled down
    And all that was left was a tired frown

    Why’d you have to turn rain to a thunderstorm?
    Couldn’t you see that I wanted to shelter you?
    I just wanted to get you home where it’s warm
    So why is it that you chose something else to do?
    Was I ever worth anything to you?

    Why’d you have to be a gust of wind
    When I wanted a gentle breeze?
    You got your wish, babe, you win,
    I’ve enough sense to see
    I can’t fight a storm and I can’t fight you
    Nah, I don’t even want to try for you

    It’s like we’re lost
    Heart’s covered in frost
    And you’re standing in the cold
    And it’s your own happiness you’ve sold

    Call me when it get’s too cold

    Tumultuous forces throw me aside
    I never knew this would be such a ride
    I thought we were on the same side
    Or was that a lie?

    You start to tremble
    I start to cry
    Was it a lie?
    Was it a lie?

    Why’d you have to be a gust of wind
    When I wanted a gentle breeze?
    You got your wish, babe, you win,
    I’ve enough sense to see
    I can’t fight a storm and I can’t fight you
    Nah, I don’t even want to try for you

    You’re unstable, babe, hate to say
    You aren’t worth the price to pay
    Was this just a little game you played?
    Aren’t you happy? You win today.

    I’m leavin’, babe, your behavior is too much
    All I wanted was a small touch
    I think I’ve had enough
    Babe, you play too rough

    I’m done with the wind and going inside
    Have fun on your own insane ride
    I’m sure you still think you’re right
    I think you’ve lost your sight
    Of what you had inside

    Why’d you have to be a gust of wind
    (I’m done with the wind and going inside)
    When I wanted a gentle breeze?
    (Have fun on your own insane ride)
    You got your wish, babe, you win,
    (I’m sure you still think you’re right)
    I’ve enough sense to see
    (I think you’ve lost your sight)
    I can’t fight a storm and I can’t fight you
    (Of what you had inside)
    Nah, I don’t even want to try for you
    (Of what you had inside)
  17. Sudden epiphanies
    come too late
    Suddenly accompanied
    to this fate

    I want to take back all that I've said
    but what good would it ever do?
    Crying and trembling, awake in my bed
    And I just can't stop thinking of you

    I want the tender
    sweet moments
    I'm a repeat offender
    of love, potent
    is my madness
    when I feel it's not enough

    It's not my fault
    I want to say
    Your love's like a vault
    I know today
    I can't take this
    I want to hear you
    It's you I miss
    I swear I really do

    With every moment apart
    you drive me insane
    It's damned near tearing up my heart
    and crawling inside my brain

    Call me, please
    before I walk away
    I beg for release
    for this way to say

    "I love you"

    But you're already gone, it seems
  18. Trust and Paranoia

    "Trust" is a four letter word
    So is the word "Cheat"
    Now I'm sitting here, concerned
    And I think that the lines have been blurred

    I don't know what you've heard
    But you made me complete
    So what you think you've deffered
    makes me feel like a woman of the street

    Boy, I wouldn't come close to
    I wouldn't even want to
    you've got a lot of nerve to
    Think that I would cheat

    This is absurd
    I tried to be sweet
    Wouldn't you have preferred
    To have not said those words?

    I don't want to think of what you've demurred
    Now I'm dragging my feet
    I'm wondering, man, if it's ever occurred
    to you that you might be wrong?

    If you tell a girl
    again and again
    that she does something
    it's all you're gonna see
    How can I prove that's not me?

    I don't cheat,
    You make me feel cheap
    when you tell me this one thing
    And it's starting to make my heart sting

    How am I supposed to please you
    when the words I say aren't enough
    when the things I do, I fuck it all up
    And that's when things get tough

    "I make mistakes", I tell this to you
    "But that's not something I'd ever do
    Now I don't know how I'll pull through
    Because this is something I can't undo."

    This is absurd
    I tried to be sweet
    Wouldn't you have preferred
    To have not said those words?

    "I want you to be happy", I had said
    and now I'm lying in my cold bed
    Wondering how this could be
    who the hell did you see
    when you looked at me?

    You're paranoid
    and it hurt
    You'd think I'd flirt
    I'd like to assert
    That I'm not like that at all

    I talk to you all the time
    I marvel at you day to day
    and now it's all on the line
    and I don't know what to say
    I wish you'd take it away

    I love you still
    But I don't know what to do
    What am I supposed to say to you?
    you're the one that needs to chill

    Talk to my family
    talk to my friends
    They'd tell you I would have gone to the end
    and back again, just to have seen you smile
    even for a little while

    I know I fucked up in the past
    But like all other things, it didn't last
    My luck was returned when you took me back
    Now I wonder what the future has cast

    I'm trying to be nice
    "smile through the pain"
    But honestly it's cold
    like ice in my veins

    I wanted to please you
    every damned moment
    In everything I ever do
    I always did it for you
    what you think is untrue

    I would never do that to you.

    In every thing I do
    I always smiled about you
    I thought we'd push through
    what ever we came to
    But this has really got you

    And I don't want to be thought of like that by you.
    So tell me what to do.
    How do I get through to you?
    I don't want to fall through
    This is hard to chew...

    What happened to me and you?
  19. WOW! Great Work Murrstress!
  20. Thank you very much.
