I say sorry
Grow Up (Poem)
I hear people
Tell me to "Grow up"
Instead what I hear
Them say is
"Surrender Your Inner Child"
The LastHe fights as hard as any of his kind ever fought
and thousands fall to his fury.
Yet even one such as he can hardly hope to stand
alone against this fearful jealous horde.
If man desires this world he may have it,
only at a cost of fire and blood.
The succumbingDo you ever own a mask
You put on every day?
Once you go home to your bed,
Does it fade away?
Do you break down in tears,
Noiseless hiccups echoing fears?
The heart is weak,
The soul is meek
To bow down to the demons,
That creep and crawl and
Come so quickly, so fast
You can't breathe, you are drowning!
Pessimism always lasts...
FearendsWe are pals in paranoia
Staunch allies in anxiety
Friends of stranger chemistry
Strangers to society
Never Perfect All beauty is in imperfection
Perfection is a horror to behold
For you know you will never see
Acceptance If life could take a different path
Perhaps we would be together
But if life was of that other draft
Would I have ever met her
Of the many twists and turns we took
Leading all the way to here
How many, with a second look,
Would fulfil my greatest fear
To never know her, never bathe
In joy from her bright smile
But know her I do and simply crave
To sit with her and talk a while
The Long Half of the Week Tuesdays and Wednesdays, Sundays and Mondays
The lonely and long days, each in their own ways
Alone in a crowd, bereft of my muse
Surrounded by people, none of them you
MirrorMirror, mirror, on the wall,
I refuse to be your china doll.
With your minions wielding microphones
Your gorgeous, dazzling, Barbie'd clones
Your lies, your smiles, your peddled "cure"
Your help, your love, your "Just a little bit more..."
"A little bit farther, and you'll lose who you were.
A little bit better, and you'll be just like her."
Mirror, mirror, at my feet,
Cracked and gone like once-was me,
Stop begging, stop pleading,
Stop lying, stop needing--
Let me go.
