Jason Bayliss on Proud men i know (two short poems for father's day) (1 hour ago)
Bird beneath the midnight sky
As on my lonely couch I lie,
I hear thee singing in the dark,
Why sing not I?
No star-gleams meet thy wakeful eye;
No fond mate answers to thy cry;
No other voice, through all the dark,
Makes sweet reply.
Yet never sky-lark soaring high
Where sun-lit clouds rejoicing lie,
Sang as thou singest in the dark,
Not mute as I!
O lone, sweet spirit! tell me why

Asking for help left and right
In the roughest moments
Hope, I need you
There is always a war going on in my head
Angels and demons clashing inside of me

But I know that as a race we should be fed up,
Fed up with all the bullshit that has been placed upon us.
Fed up of all the...

But I think it fell in a black hole.
I’ve been searching
For the sun to come out
But it burned out years ago.
I was surrounded by such beauty
I could not take my eyes off of you
But I wasn’t enough to captivate you for long.
My heart used to beat for you out of time
You were like a flower that st...
