Broken Heart Feelings

DownUp 0

Standing alone on the world’s edge,
He prayed for hours and hours,
And there arrived a sage.

I’ll give you a boon, he said,
But, with it, a curse will be spread
You will have no enemies,
But neither will you have any love
You will have no good memories,
Neither will you have any casualties.

Or, you can choose to have 1 love,
But, with it, come a thousand enemies.
The choice was not that tough.
He didn’t choose love.
‘Life is hard’, he said,
‘1 more enemy and I’d be dead’

He lived his life peacefully,
But, the devil had other plans for him, painfully.
Dante showed him a glimpse of love,
One, he couldn’t have enough.

He pleaded to the sage,
I made a choice, please let me change
The sage took pity….
‘Have some love, have an identity’

The man happy and satisfied,
Blindly walked past his demise.
He got love, a lot of love
But she soon left him
And he sat there in disgust.

The pain of a thousand enemies wasn’t even comparable
to the sting of love.
He was vulnerable,
Too afraid to love, too afraid to trust.

The devil laughed to his heart’s content
The girl he loved was never content
This is the reality of us humans,
There is no love, there is no hate,
Life is just an empty tunnel, leading to our empty fate.

You will have no love,
But neither will you have any enemies.
You will have no good memories,
Neither will you have any casualties.

OUR TREE

DownUp 0

IT TAKES SO LONG FOR A TREE TO GROW,
SO MANY YEARS OF PUSHING THE SKY.

LONG BRANCHES STRETCH THEIR ARMS,
REACH OUT WITH THEIR WOODEN FINGERS.

YEARS DRIFT BY FALL LIKE LEAVES,
FROM GREEN TO YELLOW THEN BACK TO GREEN.

SINCE MY GRANDAD WAS A BOY,
AND THEN BEFORE HIS FATHER’S FATHER,

THERE’S BEEN AN ELM OUTSIDE OUR SCHOOL,
IT’S SHADOW LONG ACROSS OUR PLAYGROUND.

TODAY THREE MEN RIPPED IT DOWN,
CHOPPED IT UP. IT TOOK TEN MINUTES.

Everlasting Love

DownUp -1

everyday I can see your face
shining on me with such full grace
reminding me why I have my place
because you love me

and when all time seems to slow
its because you and I both know
that we are one and can feel it grow
our love everlasting

and in the cosmos
through time and space
we’ll find each other
and have our place
never lost to wander again
in that darkness

I love you …

My Funeral

DownUp 0

at my funeral
where i was layed to rest
my attire was smashing
i wore the best
i wish i could have seen me
as i went beneath the earth
but time went by so quickly
didn’t treasure my life’s worth
i saw their faces
filled with pain and sorrow
if i could turn back the hands of time
i would start back few years back tomorrow
but its too late
i cant change my destiny
my only regret
i left behind my family
my son he cried, my daughter she did the same
i only ask one thing of them,
never forget my name
i didn’t have a lot to offer
but my love and respect
i tried my best to show them
be truthful in every aspect
i hope my death hasn’t gone in vain
i love you all,,, please remember my name.

What’s Family love?

What’s Family love?

Well love is what brought you here.
Love is what keeps you here.
And love is a lesson you’ll learn so listen closely.
Love can nice and it can be wicked
Only if you share it with the wrong person
and love is what will keep your family together when you get older.

You Stole My Heart

DownUp 0

It started with a kiss
My god it was bliss
So soft and warm I wish it had have been till dawn.

You stole my heart in that moment
Now I am yours and devoted

Just realize what you mean to me and hold those thoughts close to thee
I love you more then words can say,
And hope one day that I might stay

The time we spend in each others arms
Means more to me then you could imagine
It’s like holding a princess at a beauty pageant.

My world has turned full circle round
I can barely keep my feet on the ground

I think of you all day long
Is that so bloody wrong
To hear you’re voice
Makes me rejoice

For soon our love will be together
and our hearts joined forever.
My love for you is brand new
Keep it polished and keep it true

I promise to look after you.

Sunshine I Love You

DownUp 0

That added brightness to my life
You are the one
That always came in my mind
You know? I am missing you so much
I just want to tell you one thing that
Sunshine I need you
Sunshine I love you.
