Poetry Blogs (2021, Pain)
Tinnitus shrieking day and night
Keeps me up, keeps me uptight
A high-pitched squeal
A constant Eeeeeee
A passing Jet
A Kettle of Tea
Crickets in the Forest
Cicadas in the trees
All screeching together
Like metal on pavement
Sure you can go
And do what you do
Don’t be bored
Don’t let it get to you
Sometimes it is alright

Mental - Physical - Emotional
No words can describe pain
No medicine can help pain
Mental - Physical - Emotional

You're a steady stream of bad choices waiting to happen.
The eye of the storm, or the calm before it?
What's the difference?
It's going to ruin you anyway.
You're a constant trickle of water, wanting to make noise but too scared to do it.
Because you're a puppet controlled by strings.
Water controlled by the trap.
I wish my life was like a game show where you press the buzzer and you're eit...

With gloom I express what I can,
not to do so will cause the demise of my soul;
sadness lacerates me like a dancing whip
To describe the incomprehensible in words is not easy,
to explain it is complicated,
to make it understandable is more difficult
People are slowly eliminated,
they agonize on a cross that has been erected for them;
hunger and disease spreads...

I hear the hounds whine. The dust rises as they stomp and claw the dirt before me. Eyes made of moonlight and their breath, the stench of pain. I am no longer their mistress. Forsaken them for a heart. Oh wretched beasts forgive me. Allow me one more day's light above the shadows.

A heart full of hurt, wanting to unleash pain
A heart not strong enough to endure all
But I find solace in our times together
I give that which I can't get, I have what I can't give,
Our moments gives me nothing but peace
Did you regret it?
A knowable answer
Was it worth it?
A question never asked
But I find hope in my love.
I know nothing will change

You are going soon
Going far away
Your bags are in the car
Your plane leaves at dawn
But you tell me 'don't be sad'
You are still here today
And that's the thing about going--
It means you're not yet gone

"Give children fire, so they can grow stronger than anyone you've ever known"
Take me to the edge
Give me wings to touch the sky
Let me hustle my sorrow into the wind
May my pain echo in a kind
Might it set their world on fire
Tears pumping through their veins
Let them know what I've felt
What ache I've been in
And they'll heal as soon as their own wind whisper hits 'em
As a hurricane

I hurt for you,
Then, now, and my whole life through.
I hurt for him, her and the next,
For last time and this time, I’m a motherfuckin wreck.
No body knows that shit but me,
That this butterfly ain’t as free as she’d like to be.
I’ve lived this way,
It’s why I sway and sway,
I dance, in a trance,
In the dark, feel the expanse.
I've never had a choice,
But I’ve l...

When you left, you took a piece of my heart
When you left, my whole world came tumbling down
I became so lost
I was left in the dark
You took with you my light
When you left, I learned to fight
I learned to navigate this world without you by my side
I learned to be strong to no longer rely on your love
You thought I was weak,
For feeling too much
Now, you're the one ...

Father's fell in the ages of stones ,
Then I was given names by companions .
In me there grew a pain none could see ,
As I watched back in the days ,
Others were bought Christmas gifts ,
While I sat back ,with burning wishes
I recall slowly ,the path itself was a war
With that little hope I grew, daily.
Everyday storms would sneak in the little shelter that Momma gav...

Close the door to all the pain
It will not help you.
Shut out all the rage
It will exhaust you.
Think your thoughts again
But try not to descend
Because you've so much to do
To ease your mind.
And how you'll do it
And if you're going to begin
You can only do it
One thought at a time.

What is it that attracts us to other human being so much we can’t breathe?
What is that gate to heaven and hell?
What is it that attracts me to you?
Eyes in the dark, like reindeers in headlights. About to live?
What was life? What was all that fear and anger? Sweat, trembling, catching breath so hopelessly.
So hopelessly lost in you. Forever....

Every time the glass of your skull
Crashes into the fist of another memory
To crush you where you stand
Because another memory has broken you
Because another memory has entered you
Like intruders, they force their way inside
They punch their way into your attention
They invade your heart
Until you must look at them
All so that they can violate you again

"You have been here a few days now",
"Since Saturday", she replied
"And why did you come in here?"
"Because I attempted suicide"
She didn't have any worries,
She wasn't sad or happy,
It was blank, emotionless state,
Nothing to do, nothing got her interest,
Now been quite a few time living through this noiseless rhyme,
It was like a vegetative state, living in her mi...

Painful embers stab the dark
Of pain too rich to bear
Callous flames, beguile a heart
Left stained by acrid air
Dreams denied by rancid thoughts
On lips too vain to care
Lifetimes lost in frozen eyes
A soul beyond repair

Climb the steps, one by one
Feel the breeze refresh me
Hands can nearly touch the sun
Golden rays drip down around me
Love and splendour encases my heart
With the world shining out all its glory
A brand new day, a glimmering start
New beginnings, new days, new story
Top of the slide, secure on the mat
Fluttering lungs fill up with excitement
The world whizz...

Days began and nights would turn
Through endless cycles of despair
The living dream, compelled by hope,
Carried away and lost in ethereal life.
Shattered byways that led to want and love
Broken by lies and embittered deceit
With the emptiness rotting inside.
Frustration abounded and sank In my heart
Fulfilment seemed to slip through fingers
As the quicksand o...

Stay with me dont leave me in this dark valley
Lay on my emotions pet them tell them it can all go away
Everytime im sleepless i have images of our times coming and going
Eventually youll walk in that fire and understand the burning
Peoplw will walk in an ember from hell just to find out where your going
Will we fall to our senses and stumble down lonely park drive
I see the s...
