It Hurts

DownUp 0

It hurts when you know its over
When you wake up and find out your idol of joy is gone
When you can’t work with all vim and vigor anymore
All because you lost a heart to another
Its like the world is crushing down on you
Like the arrows that sphere up the world are headed in your direction
You fall when the ground has no space for you
You cry when all faces are smiling at you
It really hurts when its over
Especially when you lose someone you LOVE
It really hurts.

Only You

DownUp +1

It is so dark and dead
Every moment I open the pages of my past
There is something I never understand
like a part of me is yelling for light
But the moment you took that pathway and came in sight
And gave that face that brightened your smile
You filled every bit and tint of my broken memory
And answered the question i’d longed to ask
Then I knew even down the rope of life
A smile costs as much as a life
There were those who left traceable traits in my heart.
Those who left theirs footprints imprinted like a scar
I thought they would stay but they didn’t
They just faded away
Like the sun at sunset
But you came with your wings of flight
And took me to a land called paradise
If there’s someone who gives life a meaning
And makes me cherish every moment alive
Then it’s you. Only you

Lonely But Beautiful

DownUp 0

I am lonely but beautiful
trusty worthy and studious
a woman with flaws and high protection walls
beautiful and black,how about that

I am lonely that is so true
Why am I lonely ?
Are you?

Educated and faithful
just to name a few
beautiful, lonely, and black ….

What about you?

O wonder if you lonely when you die,
and i wonder if you can feel pain,
i wonder if you can be sad and cry,
and i wonder how many people go insane
but i will ask them one day,
just to see what they say,
i wonder if they say its the life,
or if they say its to much strife
but the day i ask them i wont wonder
just bcoz that days near, and i cant wait.

The Path To Follow

DownUp +6

Here I sit,
As I dream of it
A future with no tomorrow.
I press my days,
And keep my gaze
A life with no sorrow.
My peace of mind,
I leave behind
My dreams I’d like to follow.
And with each stride,
I take in pride
Dreaming the better tomorrow.
No feat is to weary,
Or obstacle too scary
For my dreams I will not shadow.
My head held high,
I cannot shy
On the path I’ve begun to follow.

Lies & Broken Promises

DownUp 0

Lies continue to be told
All my tears, I cannot hold.
What keeps me having hope, I may never know.
But I know that if you love me, you never let it show.
I’ve grown tired of your “apologies”
All the worthless Sorries.
Yet I continue to hold hope to the future that we shall not have together.
You say you know you hurt me, but yet you cause me pain that lasts forever.
Please, if you dont love me, set me free.
It’s worth it although it will hurt Ainsley.
Every night i dream….of a perfect us.
Where there’s love….and bundles of trust.
Happy I am, until I wake.
Realizing the truth, I begin to shake.
Tears begin to fall, washing away the smile that was once there.
Words cannot express how much I care.
Weather you do or not, Is a mystery.
Are you going to let the story of us end here, and become history?
Loving someone shouldn’t hurt me.
But I guess I’ll continue to dream of how we should be.
One day I”ll get the courage to leave you.
And maybe you’ll realize how my love was true.
Sadly those things shall never happen, so for now all i ask of you is…….
Never tell me you love me, until you are ready to mean it.

Shooting Stars

DownUp 0

If you,my friend were a shooting star
I’d catch you before you’d fall!
I’d take you home and dress you well
And care and feed you full!
I’d enjoy the pleasure of your warming glow
and listen your tales of thee,
Time you spent o way up high
glittering up in the sky!
Cos you my friend
are the best of friends
and I’ll miss you when you go
to wherever you belong!
