Poetry Blogs (2014, sadness)
What, to you, does a tear signify?
Joy, pain, sadness, or just something in the eye.
How do you respond? Grasp the shoulders and share the joy,
Hold her close and reveal that it’s a boy.
Give a sympathetic cuddle with it's irritating stroking
Sorry, didn’t realise it was your eye I was poking.

I sit outside and smoke and stare.
At all the people who pass me there.
They do not wave, they do not smile.
Why won't they come and talk a while?
They pass me by without a care.
I watch them go and wonder where.
I go inside and think of them.
But they of me? Not now or then.

Once i heard tell of a road in the west
one that runs for many miles.
its full of twists,
Of sadness and of smiles.
a road that will challenge you,
that will kill you if you falter.
a road of love and loss,
and of branches that always alter.
this road is unending tranquility,
this road is unyelding strife.
in the west it has a name.
this road its name is li...

As much try shaking off
odd feeling can’t avoid
On face seems normalcy
deep within I’m paranoid
All evident brave fronts
and donned blasé guise
Reflect chinks in armor
of societal compromise
Frayed old compulsions
often daunt and afflict
Daubed in hues darker
sane rationality restrict
Old emotional stockpile

The time has come for me to go
My life's been hard, as you all know
I've worked hard, all of my life
All I've had is trouble and strife
How I've tried to turn things around,
My hopes my dreams
Smashed to the ground
I've had my highs and I've had my lows
But life has dealt me, too many blows
Endless depression, is getting me down
Can't raise a smile, only a frown

Like an old friend,
I stare at the clock,
"Should I sleep now or later?"
For I am not sure anymore,
What is expected
Of a single man,
And I stare at this empty bed,
And miss her body,
And her warmth... And her.

So quiet, faintly whispering
My real feelings about life
My insides are withering
Ever growing is my strife
I broke my eyes a while back
So now you’ll never get to see
My soul windows have been cracked
The pain is building inside of me
So here, I will sit
Forever a caged heart
In this deep dark pit
Until I tear this life apart
Slowly being consumed by hate
From my head to my toe...

My orphaned poetry,
protagonist of my sunset,
lyrics roam in disappointment
The rigor of silence,
feeling that it is impossible
to live without your love
This urge to love you
condemns me to the passion
of becoming a woman on your skin
How many days of nostalgia ran through my body?
How much longing for the kiss that you left ...

Few moments desolate
often get you to think
How the twist of events
push you over the brink
Streaks of fleeting joy
abruptly come to end
Sans even little caution
or time to comprehend
Just split of a moment
it hits one ever so hard
Striking at susceptibility
when entirely off guard
Once past the insta...

Confounds very purpose
in the end what it ensues
Logic macabre it nurtures
plain irrationality accrues
Those closer tend to shun
all unknown you befriend
Despise meant well being
disinterest try to pretend
The time will pass you by
in state sorry to repent
Unaware you’re of perils
uncertainties it’ll pre...

Tied to the cavities of the night,
life becomes written tears in my eyes;
every part of my body has its wound
and I unceasingly wander in the aggregate pitfalls of a fog
Before me the cross of loneliness turns to me,
pass painful valleys,
there’s nothing left standing
only dents in my soul
Between fear and courage,
cold and misery tally each step,
