Poetry Blogs (2016, loneliness)
Hello guys, I have a poem here that I have entered. It makes reference to space and distant galaxies and such, so I have included the latest track I have produced to go alongside it. It doesn't have any vocals to the track and is only there to add to the experience of the piece. I hope you like both the track and the poem.
A Worlds End
I sit here, my quest stone - broke

I'm lying awake at 3am
Why am I never intoxicated with positivity?
Why aren't I a fountain of enthusiasm?
Why can't I see the euphemistic light in this unilluminated darkness?
I'm lying awake at 3am
All of my uncertainties are overwhelming
The formidable anxiety I've become acclimated with seeps in through open wounds
And yet I've learned to find tranquility in this res...

My greatest decision was to give my heart to nobody, but it resulted in an amazing loneliness. I created a safe haven. A comfortable place in my head, where words couldn't reach and prying eyes could never see. But with the gain of comfort, there came a sudden, unexpected loss of understanding.
I began to look for answers in places I had never dreamed existed, places that only exist in t...

The daytime creeps upon me
I see it and walk towards
I have been waiting for her
But it burns to love
She fades to black
My fury inside
My darkness of soul
I realise the truth
But feel no sorrow
And in the beginning of life
The universe said
You are the night

I can't do anything
Even when I try
It is destroyed.
It's my fault I can't fix it
Crushed her heart
Crushed his soul.
Miles away I screw
Not to mention my problems
Could it all be worth it
Is it all just an illusion
What's the purpose
When I only destroy.

At Clanricarde Gardens on a stuffy summer's night
I dropped a waitress at her flat
on a considered whim though undermotivated,
and she asked me in.
Through the marooned shell of a hall
and up the stair, no carpet
to soften the tread or tame
the lighted glare.
It was never designed to be a conquest,
she was dumpy and plain
and all the music wrung out of me...

When the remnants of defeat are strewn about the floor,
Covering my ripped and battered boots,
Crick and cracking evermore,
When my wounds burn and blister from the heat,
To drag my heavy soul to the depths of darkness,
When the mirror shatters to pierce the life that was lived before,
And hope dissolves into the sea,
When my dead, cold heart da...

Betrayal stabs like a dagger,
Cutting slices of my heart into 10 million scattered pieces,
The open wound lingers eternally,
Blood clots clump into a swamp of hate and anger,
The horizon does not rebirth the putrid, frozen tissue,
Feelings of filth and deceit seep through every cell of my dying body,
The bond that was once so strong rots into the sewage of what ...

You stand before an empty horizon,
The silhouette of the trees running sharply across the bottom of the sky,
Eyes fixed on those soulless, black shapes in the distance.
Your gaze wonders up – slowly. The sky transforms before you
From the light into the dark.
The moon hangs – trapped in the dawn of engulfment,
The ground beneath you is dim – stretching to meet the light.
