Poetry Blogs (2018, Anger)
I never made it as the number one
Every time it hits me, I sing this song
Helps remind me I'm not the only one
That you would happily, see gone
I tried to tell myself that I'm mistaken
Surely this should be, my newfound haven
Instead I feel like I'm locked down in your basement
Living on time that's already over-spent
You can't say you never knew that
I saw you as gold, 14 carat

Those words we share
and those we don't
The ones you use
what do they mean?
So much is lost between the lines.
That inflexion or joy I might have heard
Those words we share
and those we don't
The anger I feel in you
what do your eyes show?
I can never know as I read the lines.

Preamble: see below for explanation that is too long to preamble here.
I didn’t know I was still angry till the day I heard you’d died.
Suddenly the old bitterness is welling up inside
I haven’t given you a thought for literally years
But now I find my eyes are filling up with tears
Not of grief, but of re-awakened pain
Reliving the sting of your words all over again
I’m not ...

Music fades away when you arrive
Spreading the doom with every stride
The stare of hatred locked in your eyes
Sinister cravings behind sacred lies
You want me to beg
You want me to look
You want me to bend
And follow your rules
Judging from throne made out of gold
Taken from people that you control
Deep in your cave, the smell of decay
Surrounded by slaves, you feist on their brain

Where's the fucking rizlas man?
I just need a fucking smoke
to take the edge of
starting with just one almighty toke
this week's been shit. I have to say
today's been much the same
let's smoke 'til I can't see her face
and can't recall their names
she said that I'm an addict yeah
what does she fucking know?
A few pills every weekend
and a little bit of blow
a spliff for breakfast every...

Should the feelings of guilt
outweigh those of resentment?
Is the fear of loneliness
worth more than fear of rage?
Is it wrong to long for simplicity
and abandon the search for contentment?
Is it right to write words of anger
on a blank, unforgiving page?
Is it wise to seek solace in poetry
when every act of writing
is seen as an act of selfishness
that can ne...

Looking into the depths of your soul
Your eyes glassy like a window
I try to reach out to you, but as if on cue,
You pull your shades down
You put up a nice facade
Concealing it with your dimpled smiles
You think you hid it well from me
But you'll watch me wreck your walls
Flames of orange and blue dancing in your eyes
Red blazing your skin and forming a silhouette

In a warehouse, in a cage a child sits
Clinging to her only comfort a blanket of foil
And whilst we all recoil
at the horror on display
Theresa May declares although it’s not ok
She will wait and chat in her special friend’s ear.... only when he is here
Whilst umbilical cords of family ties
Are severed bleeding out amid cries ..............................

It burns again this time too deep
And in it the angry grows and steeps
It controls the mind and makes it worn
And with each corrosion of my sanity
With every severed sinew of logic
The fear churns into a thickening layer
That snaps back quicker
I want to let it go
To let the anger flow
Through my shoulders and down to my toes
To the groun...

Must be quite a kick, that feeling
Walking the corridors with power,
Knowing you have that which others don’t
Holding it close, nestling, kneeling
Taking aim as others cower
Doing that which others won’t
Taking life, paying back, being
For once the number one,
The big man, standing proud and tall
The one who sends the toughest fleeing.
Alone, just ...

looking at things i wonder what went wrong
coz i am singing my saddest song
with no where to go
not even against the flow.
cant hold still coz my blood boils
and my mind recoils
my anger at the tip of my nose
coz of that i am writing my prose.
with no one to turn to
i am evaporating like mountain dew
thoughts running through my head
while i lay on my bed.

Lines I wrote while very upset:
Im worthless to you and rich to everyone else. Why?
Can you hear me screaming? My lungs are bleeding.
I’m not even in the water but I’m drowning.
We’re going no where. Ever. It’s a standstill.
Why do I keep trying?
You got got me fucked up. I know my worth but apparently you don’t. Are you fucking stupid?

Burning in flames,
The dailys and weeklys
With the cries of the innocents,
The tellys simulcasting the stamped extremities,
Of a soul, we call Women.
Crushed beneath the savage desires of the lousy men.
A girl, who once aimed of the skies,
How could have she known,
Jeopardy awaited on her way back home.
That she’ll be served as a bait to the lust,...

I am going to do something completely out of spite
i know it's bad it makes me sad it's definetley not right
It's something inside me that takes over when i'm jealous
this certian urge causes me to become rebellious
I will regret this in the future and i will be sorry
as for now i'l do it proud and not have to worry
I apologise in advanced for this
You'll find out some day...

In the great winter night,
Opened skies scream to the willowed avalanches,
Where the people die mourning their loved ones.
Leaves didn’t fall that afternoon in december,
Nor did the bodies strung up on the desert floor,
Sand seeps into wounds and makes the blind cry for their mothers,
Fashioned in a new way to see the world go round,
I opened fantasy and mirror alike...

Sometimes my minds a cage
To a beast who cant be tamed
These feelings to familar
I over came the pain
just to let you in
for a time I let you fuel me
im afraid that youve consumed me
