    I see that you've given this newest poem a title. That's good: I prefer titles. The bottled-up anger in this poem is really powerful, as if you're a ticking time bomb. Great sense of rhyming too. All in all, I can say I like this.

    The Return


    *sarcastic tone*

    There's like so many things
    I want to say right now
    i'm just having some trouble
    like figuring out how

    *serious tone*

    Like the problem now with society
    can't stand nothin in sobriety
    so the only state of mind to be
    is a f***** up piece of trash,
    don't seem right to me

    Got the case in point here you see
    this dude was driven quite illegally
    he was beyond intoxicated for you and me
    ran his car right off the road straight into a tree

    Of course they didn't find him for a couple of days
    all mommy ever did was bow her head and pray
    asking that her husband makes it home real soon
    looking out her window staring at the moon

    She finally got the call that said to come real quick
    she got that feeling in her stomach like she was sick
    she rushed down to hospital to meet him there
    hoping for a miracle to her prayer

    The doctors met the mommy in the waiting room
    they couldn't look her in the eye, just hung their heads in gloom
    they said they weren't sure, to tell was too soon
    so mommy waited there until just about noon

    There was a sudden alarm and mommy just knew
    nurses started yelling code blue, code blue
    the pain in mommy's stomach grew and grew
    mommy hit the floor and didn't know what to do

    More than one life ended on that horrible day
    mommy's life ended in a different way
    she had to raise two babies all on her own
    she had to get two jobs just to pay for their home

    A shame that this is one of many to see
    first hand a problem with society
    they had to feel the pain unlike me
    I stand back and watch all the misery

    I can't do a thing cause the fight can't be won
    don't get me wrong, if it could be done
    i'd be the first to hold up his gun
    and watch all the wicked take off and run

    The battle may rage and the soldiers may cry
    some people live and some people die
    some people get to hear the warrior's scream
    some people get to live life like a dream

    For those who must stand for a nobler cause
    come take a stand, give a round of applause
    for you are the few to see any flaws
    in society . . .

    This was not based off of an actual event. Any likenesses or similarities to an actual occurrence are completely coincidental.

    As The Year Goes By

    Let's build a home in January
    fill it up with lots of merry
    our own little sanctuary
    let's build a home in January

    We'll make the time in February
    to go down to the cemetery
    if not you, i'll be an emissary
    we'll make the time in February

    Go and watch the sun in March
    observe it beat down on the larch
    just enough so as not to parch
    go and watch the sun in March

    I'll go and see the skies of April
    watching with my lovely angel
    promise her that i'll be faithful
    i'll go and see the skies of April

    Let's go swimming at the end of May
    we'll go out and play and play
    won't go home till the sun does lay
    let's go swimming at the end of May

    I'll go fishing in mid June
    i'll go at night and watch the moon
    i won't be leaving anytime soon
    i'll go fishing in mid June

    Bring me freedom in July
    without liberty i'd rather die
    know that i can tell know lie
    bring me freedom in July

    I'll paint a picture sometime in August
    i'll ask you to be truly honest
    on the day when it becomes the hottest
    i'll paint a picture sometime in August

    Wake me up when September ends
    bring about peace to all my friends
    to all the hearts of broken, mend
    wake me up when September ends

    We'll have a drink about October
    let's hope that we can both stay sober
    as the sun goes down, we'll get closer
    we'll have a drink about October

    Let's go buy gifts at the end of November
    we'll swing buy the shopping center
    find something that fills us with splendor
    let's go buy gifts at the end of November

    We'll make a fire in December
    it'll be one that we'll remember
    watch the flames, its burning ember
    we'll make a fire in December

    I promised didn't I . . .

    That one day I would make you see . . .

    That day has come so make your choice . . .

    Him? or Me? . . .

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Come on, just give it a rest
    I'm so sick of being depressed
    got me running round corners
    with my hand on my chest

    It feels like all these pills
    the doctor prescribes me
    when i'm getting the chills
    the blues make it seem like a lie
    thought there weren't supposed to make me wanna

    Fly off to the sky at rapid speeds
    the pain hurts so much i'm on my knees
    beggin please just make it stop
    make it pop all the pain away
    I can't take it no more but it's here to stay
    either way I can't win I have to lose
    I have to chose what I want to do
    what I need to do is throw it all away
    give it all up and maybe then someday
    i'll finally say that's it i've had enough
    can't keep pretending that i'm tough
    i'm not tough i'm weak i won't pretend
    that this ain't the end
    this ain't the end i thought I knew
    the big bad wolf he blew and blew
    tore me down bit by bit
    struck me down hit by hit
    until i finally quit
    and gave up all my hope
    i can feel that lump down deep in my throat
    but I can't cry all my tears are dried up
    pried open my eyes to get one last look
    you came to my rescue but now it's too late
    don't worry i won't hold no regrets or hate
    just promise me that this ain't fate
    that in another life it wouldn't be the same
    maybe then we could be together
    just the thought makes me anticipate forever
    well my love till we meet again
    so long goodbye now this is the end

    So I hung up the phone
    the thought of being alone
    was too great for me
    I need some company

    Though as it would happen to seem
    i'll go hang out for a while
    at her best friends house
    i got her on speed dial

    So it appears someone has been putting in work for their rhymes, meaning, metaphors, that raw talent, and just finding you. That's why you are just so talented I'd love to do a poem duo with you again real soon.

    "For every dream, there are several more."

    "For every tear shed, another drops."

    I hold these statements, along with the link they share, to the highest regard.

    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

    Sometimes I like to dream
    of everything i've seen
    the things I never will
    and the things that cannot be

    Seems like a hopeless matter
    when i've all but broken down
    hear all this endless chatter
    as it tears apart the ground

    And now from where i'm standing
    all things I could not see
    i'm gonna stick a perfect landing
    on this life outside my dreams

    Never give up hope, till you've found the answer
    never throw away all of the things that matter
    if you give it all you've got, you will make it there and see
    come now take my hand and we'll go find our destiny

    We'll find . . . our . . . dest . . . in . . . y

    ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

    The things i've done
    in life i''m not proud of
    but cannot leave behind
    what lies above, what lies above

    Truth be told from me
    all of the sincerity
    i've shown you all this time
    was part of my broken reality

    My world came crashing down
    the walls were caving in
    I lost my mind around
    the time I lost my soul to sin

    I gave it all I had
    and it just wasn't enough
    it really is quite sad
    a fractured mind is not that tough

    There was a time I thought I knew
    with everything i'd do
    came with consequence
    so true, so true, so true, so true

    I weighed it in my hands
    the forces that we hold
    just where that I may land
    in the darkest dirt or solid gold

    My world came crashing down
    the walls were caving in
    I lost my mind around
    the time I lost my soul to sin

    I gave it all I had
    and it just wasn't enough
    it really is quite sad
    a fractured mind is not that tough

    But whose to say the truth
    isn't all a bunch of lies
    even in the darkest dirt
    shines the brightest fireflies

    the brigh . . . test . . . fi . . . re . . . flies

    --------------------------------

    Hopefully you all can find a few truth in these pieces, or at the most enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed making them. I actually hope to produce that last one into an actual song. Thanks for reading ^_^

    So the truth is it how we take it, or the the way you see it through your eyes, but just us trying to see what you see?

    That last one I just meant to look for any truths you might find in it. It doesn't have to be from my eyes, in fact it should be from yours. If the only thing i'm making you see in my work is what I see then it's basically a waste of time. It's supposed to make you feel something, though it may be a different feeling for different people. I use my emotions and my experiences to create something, hoping that it might spark something in someone else as a creative inspiration. That's all i'm looking for when I write, that's all I want. But enough being all deep and stuff or whatever, here's the next piece ^_^

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    I'm In The Shadows And I Just Don't Give A ****
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    *wind blowing in the distance*
    *leaves rustling in the wind*
    I know that everything's about the spotlight these days,
    I just don't really like that lifestyle.
    I can't help but feel afraid of when the light shines on me,
    i'm gonna choke and get left in the dust.
    But . . . that's okay because . . .

    I'm cold like ice in the snow it's alright
    I travel in the shadows be it day or night
    it's not a frightening scene to see me lean
    under the shade beneath a tree because i'm me
    that's who I am that's who I want to be i'm not afraid
    to say these things because i've laid so many rhymes
    in the time it takes two rappers to throw down
    my pens down i'm out and i've already played
    the cards i've chosen hits me like the sharp end of the blade
    I can't evade the situation when I know I won't obey
    the people laughing at me, oh look at him there
    hiding in the shadows, hey look I don't care
    I'm gonna share something with you so you better take a seat
    i'm gonna show you who I am and then you might believe
    that i've not gave a single **** about the bull**** that you breathe
    breathe, breathe into me and give me life
    now that's some total bull**** I can't even get behind
    if I needed you're attention i'd be beggin for it please
    down on my knees pleading please concede
    forget that whack a** bull**** you'd best believe i'm out
    without a doubt there's no ****ing way that that's what i'm about
    i'll stick to the shadows in a manner such as this
    and when you're six feet under on your grave i'll take a p***
    make it rain on your parade promenade
    paradigm i'll lay a dime and bust a rhyme upon your grave
    better shave that fake a** haircut lookin like Dennis Quaid
    what a shame, I apologize that was offensive just by name
    i'm sorry Dennis Quaid for the comment that I made
    so before I p*** off some other movie star
    i'm gonna go back to my shadows watching from afar
    watch closely now and don't even look away
    or this might just be your very last ****ing day . . .

    Your title reminds me of a 2pac Title of one of his songs.
    And again man this is some raw ish man. I seriously doubt people could actual understand how raw we are when it comes to doing things of this nature without even trying. Good stuff man good stuff.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    In a world of danger i'm no stranger to you
    without danger i'd have nothing to do
    but my friends are all falling around me now
    i'd like to save them but I don't know how

    it's like everything is changing before my eyes
    and I can't stop it, hard as I may try
    stop the press it's all a bunch of lies
    I won't stop trying until the day I die

    I'll fight everything that gets in my way
    I don't give a d*** about what you say
    go ahead and tell me that i'm wrong
    maybe I was wrong all along

    it's like everything is changing before my eyes
    and I can't stop it, hard as I may try
    stop the press it's all a bunch of lies
    I won't stop trying until the day I die

    Now i'm lying here waiting for the end
    I have nothing left here to defend
    all my friends have gone away for good
    follow them, I think that I should

    it's like everything is changing before my eyes
    and I can't stop it, hard as I may try
    stop the press it's all a bunch of lies
    I won't stop trying until the day I die

    I open my eyes and see the brand new places
    I look around and see the familiar faces
    I guess that I was wrong after all
    maybe they're not so bad . . . changes

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Not some of my best work, but i'm not as upbeat as I usually am. This is probably one of the slowest flowing pieces i've made . . . if not the slowest. I might come back and revise when my tempo picks up, if you know what I mean.[DOUBLEPOST=1352589072][/DOUBLEPOST]Some believe in miracles
    some believe in faith
    it's just so hysterical
    when I see your pretty face

    How much my heart opens up
    how it feels like i'm on clouds
    shrouded in your love
    I just feel so proud

    and lucky to have met you
    this just must be fate
    I think that we can do
    anything today

    Cause when I look in your eyes
    all I see are endless possibilities
    I can't hold it all inside
    when you look at me . . . and I look into your eyes

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Been a while since I wrote a sappy love poem. I don't know why I write them even though I hate love songs -_- it's quite the conundrum.

    The Contents of My Heart

    Left standing broken on a bridge
    my heart was bursting at the seams
    tears stream down both my cheeks
    as I call your name . . . no answer

    I wonder through this endless town
    seeking comfort in my worst of sins
    I stare down at the emptiness of the bottle
    it's reflecting the contents of my heart

    I have nothing left to give
    and still hope for something in return
    I simply wanted your hand
    yet you did not feel the same

    I count endless nights thinking of you
    the memories burn inside my head
    I strike a single match
    perhaps I should fight fire with

    The phone rings before I make my call
    I pick up and there's no answer
    yet I feel like someone's there
    breathing as the silent wind

    I call your name once more
    and then you say hello
    twas your fateful greeting
    that halted my final farewell

    Untitled Christmas Poem . . . or just Christmas Poem

    I stand there in the cold
    breathing here and there
    left frozen in the snow
    gazing at your icy stare

    I see your arms just hanging
    limply at your sides
    can't imagine what you're thinking
    all the secrets that you hide

    I can't help but feel bad
    for your fate is carved in stone
    i'm so sorry Mister Snowman
    for you're going with the cold

    But I smile in the end
    for in my mind I know
    i'll see you again
    next year, with the snow

    Sometimes I just wanna free the flow
    the hate, anger, rage, I just wanna let go
    free to be me in a world that says no
    free to say yes because I said so

    down and demolished like a pile of rubble
    the hate inside of me, like a vile it bubbles
    boils till it bursts bringing out all the trouble
    and when I try to suppress it it doubles

    i'm like a ticking time bomb i'm ready to burst
    everybody hates me cause think that i'm cursed
    I feed off that hatred like it's quenching my thirst
    hey everybody I just guess i'm the worst

    don't care about nothing except for myself
    put all of my emotions high up on the top shelf
    you got something to say to me, come on, well
    so you started talking to me cause you thought it would help

    no, you can't help me and i'll tell you why
    i'm knee dip in darkness, when I breathe it's a sigh
    a sigh of relief because I seen you go by
    so when you told me that you cared that was a lie

    i'm fine like this, i'm happy this way
    why would I change starting today
    I learned I can't put two sense to the stuff that you say
    let me dig you a bed in which you may lay

    see I talk a big game like I really don't care
    the truth, I hide my emotions cause they're hard to share
    it really breaks my heart cause we was a pair
    now you wanna make up, don't even dare

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Just wanted to get rid of some pent of rage. Been stressed out lately. This is a toned down version of an angry anthem/ramble. Just a bunch of jumbled up things coming together.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~​
    Scars​
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~​
    I breathe in slowly​
    the pain has yet to leave me​
    I breathe out again​
    I close my eyes now​
    I can only fear the dreams​
    the terror they hold​
    I await the sun​
    it will wake me once again​
    from the painfulness​
    The dog I see now​
    how he has brought me sorrow​
    yet he does not know​
    The scar on my knee​
    it was he who put it there​
    and the scar inside​
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~​
    This one's based on an actual even that happened in my life. Back when I was a kid I was chased by a dog, I fell and cut my knee on gravel. There's still a scar there to this day. It's not that big a deal though, I most often forget it's there. Ever since that day I haven't hesitated to walk up to any dog I see and attempt to pet it. There isn't a dog in this world that i'm afraid of. Unless it's foaming at the mouth i'll try to rub it's belly ^_^ Guess this one sort of had an opposite effect.​

    I have read pages one to five
    And your words just come alive
    I know I shouldn't rhyme
    But I just had to this time
    All those words are quite great
    And I have a lot of respect for you mate
    The lyric about an apartment coming down
    I just couldn't frown
    That one stood out for me
    And I can't wait to see more from you buddy
    Your writing shall take you to new heights
    Write more soon my friend Nights.

    Party Till The Lights Go Out
    Him:
    I know it's late but i'm calling now​
    to ask you everything about​
    that thing I told you yesterday​
    I guess it's just something I had to say​
    Her:
    I know what you said back then​
    that you're tired of just being friends​
    but I don't think that i'm ready​
    for you to be with me​
    I can't change my mind​
    Him:
    I can't throw away the time​
    i've spent on this road I chose​
    Her:
    maybe someday who knows​
    Him:
    I'm gonna throw it all away​
    forget about the sorrows of today​
    forget what this life is all about​
    for now i'll party till the lights go out​
    . . .​
    I've been waiting now for so long​
    i've tried to but I can't stay strong​
    i'm losing all I thought I knew​
    less and less I wanna be with you​
    I found someone else who loves me too​
    it wasn't really that hard to do​
    I gave up all those feelings I had​
    but then you called me and said . . .​
    Her:
    Hey I guess I changed my mind​
    I wanna spend a little more time​
    I guess i've always felt this way​
    so what do you say . . .​
    Him:
    I thought i'd moved on​
    I thought I just wasn't this strong​
    all the words jumble in my head​
    and now i've thought of what you said​
    I'm not gonna throw this all away​
    you are just a part of yesterday​
    i've learned what this life is all about​
    so you can party till the lights go out​

    Haha nice lyric Nights but it seemed a little to familiar to some I've seen before but none the less good job.

    Sorrow's forsaken me,
    this hand is taking me nowhere.
    All that I wanna do
    is be a part of you somewhere.
    But somehow i'm left standing
    in the cold and lonesome rain.
    And people keep on handing
    out ways to kill the pain.
    I won't be a part of this anymore.
    I can't keep watching you walk out the door.
    I'll stand and fight my way
    through the darkness, that's for sure.
    I won't give up, I won't give in,
    to the cold and lonely world i'm livin' in.
    Give me a break, before you break me down.
    Give me a taste, before you throw me out.
    I won't give up . . . I won't give in.
    Three more days and then I see your face,
    walking back with no sign of disgrace.
    You make me sick, you make me sad,
    you make me hurt, you make me mad.
    You don't do anything for me at all.
    I wanna run every time I hear you call.
    You call me baby when I'm barely breathing.
    You say maybe every time you're leaving.
    I won't be a part of this anymore.
    I can't keep watching you walk out the door.
    I'll stand and fight my way
    through the darkness, that's for sure.
    I won't give up, I won't give in,
    to the cold and lonely world i'm livin' in.
    Give me a break, before you break me down.
    Give me a taste, before you throw me out.
    I won't give up . . . I won't give in.
    I won't give up every time my heart bleeds.
    I won't give in to the shadows that haunt me.
    I won't break down just because you're not around.
    This boat's moving at the speed of sound.
    I won't give up . . . I won't give in.

    I can't remember
    all the things I used to know
    like the trees of late december
    or the feeling of the snow

    beneath my hooves
    i've lost all time
    there's nothing left
    now in my mind

    my heart it aches
    my soul it bleeds
    and I can't take
    this misery

    I'm not who I was anymore
    I can't be who I wanna be
    it's like my mind has closed the door
    but nopony else can see

    I'm all alone
    the dark is scary
    no place for home
    no place for merry

    I travel on in hopes someday
    of finding my lost memories
    somepony else may come this way
    maybe then it won't be so scary

    Somepony please come here to save me
    I can't keep on like this
    somepony please, can you even hear me
    but surely they won't miss
    surely they won't miss
    I know they won't miss
    a pony who doesn't even exist
