Poetry Blogs (2018, lost)
Jon Stainsby on Autocorrect and predictive text ruined my chance of romance and sex (32 minutes ago)
A lost soul
not so bright
never done wrong
but not always right
Lost in the woods
in her dazzling mood
going against the world
she thought she could
I heard she was sad
maybe she lost her dad
in early age
she got trapped in a cage
Society used to tell her
what she had to be
but she never believed
and went after her dreams

You think that time would make it easier and maybe I'd just forget.
I still think about that day often but I'm starting to think about it less.
I don't know if I should feel guilty because you're not always on my mind.
Or maybe that's just what happens when you've been gone such a long time.
I do wonder if you'd be proud of me and the things that I've done.
Would you tell me that you're happy...

Rip off the band-aid, get it over with
I never thought it would come to this
Clear mind, clear eyes
Walking straight, no more lies
Don't rely on me and I won't let you down
You can't count on me, I'll only let you down
Don't reach out for me, I'll only let you drown
These feelings are getting harder to fight myself
Pulling teeth to admit I need some help
It's cutting deep on the webbings ...

Tell me baby who's on your mind?
Who do you see when your lips are on mine?
Is it the guy you kissed?
Or your friend you miss?
Or somebody that I completely dismissed?
Anyway, I guess I deserve all of this.
I put you through hell when I promised you bliss.
I know i'm getting fat,
And my habits are pretty bad,
I need to trim my nails,
And I'm just always fucking sad.
What a drag.

It's been broken so many times
I began to lose pieces that I thought were all mine
I'm in so deep and the void is so empty
So lost for words, but I don't want sympathy
Holding this heart with my bare hands
Please just take it...I don't understand
Time brought these wounds, yet they're not healed
Permanent scars have left them sealed
I'm scared of being alone and s...

I’m losing my mind.
Don’t you understand?
I’m desperately reaching out for your hand.
Don’t leave me hanging, slipping, falling…
down into the endless abyss of darkness,
Never destined to land.
You’ve saved me once before,
But this time there are no safety ropes.
I’m free-falling, plummeting, going down…
My only hope Is for you to save me now.
I’m losing my ...

I lost you today
I understand you, but then again I do not.
You led me back to a time last year
which I no longer remembered.
I made a mistake, which cannot be forgiven.
You hold these moments in your thoughts
thrashing around like a rollercoaster
until it derails and crashes head long into its target.
I know I am hesitant and full of doubt
but I had you fully in my heart.
If you we...

If you're not careful you can get lost in the woods of your mind.
My piece of advice would be to bring with you a guide.
Someone to hold your hand and walk you through.
So that if something is lurking you have someone to hold onto.
Make sure the person you bring is trustworthy.
That they'll stick around when it starts to get scary.
Things go bump in the night and more-so in these woods.

that's what i use to be
that's what changed in me
that's what i came to be
that's who believed in me
was all i could see
you suddenly took all of me
had problems of your own, some i'd not yet seen
became broken down and lost while looking for me
promised to never hurt me
promised you'd never desert me
tried to be

Sometimes it's hard to see the light whenever you're surrounded by darkness
Have you ever felt the type of pain from looking in the mirror and not being able to recognize yourself?
Looking into your own eyes and at your own face and you say "Who is this?"
I've lost myself, yes, I'm afraid I do need some help...
But help from where? I've already been here, and I've been there...

This is a poem written for the guy ,from his perspective, all of my other poems are about when he and I were still together.
I lost my wallet yesterday.
Went back to the south side.
It wasn’t there.
Some dickhead must of stole it.
It really doesn’t matter.
I’m a broke boy anyway.

Your very first
My most important
You held it so tight
I couldn't hold my tears
To make sure you're fed
You in the middle
Across from your neglected crib
Your first steps
Corners were quickly covered
You're getting so big
I always did my very best

Between the apparatus and the equipment he prowls
Perfecting his stance and menacing scowls
His carb free diet has led to irritable bowels
Hurrah the Gym Gigolo
So desperate to create a good first impression
He takes a supplement before his daily session
Leaves him ripped but prone to acts of aggression
You what? The Gym Gigolo
After his protein shake he pumps hi...
