Can you see the sadness behind my eyes?

DownUp +8

I wonder can you see the sadness behind my eyes?
When you see my smile, do you know what I hide behind it?
When you hear me laugh, do you know what I’m really thinking?
When you hear me sing, do you really hear the meaning?
When I touch you, can you feel my pain?
I wonder can you see the sadness behind my eyes?
If you ask me if I’m ok, and I say I’m fine, is that the truth?
If you ask me what I’m doing, and I say nothing do you accept that?
If you ask me if I want to talk, and I say no, do you pursue?
If you see me cry, do you just walk on by?
I wonder can you see the sadness behind my eyes?
Have you been in a crowded room, but felt like you were alone?
Have you ever felt like a puzzle with missing pieces?
Have you always been that shoulder to cry on?
Have you felt so empty, that the darkness takes over?
I wonder can you see the sadness behind my eyes?
Will you take the time to make me smile?
Will you make the time to see me laugh?
Will you sit down with me and sing a song?
Will you hold my hand and heel my pain?
I wonder can you see the sadness behind my eyes?
My eyes tell a story that few will ever read
But if you take the time to read them
Then you will see the sadness
That they hide.

Thoughts of a Dying man

DownUp +4

As our thoughts are governed by that of the earth,
our spirit does nothing but suffer,
hearts hidden in death and deceit.
Our lips whispering that of his name,
Doing as of his desires.
We are held in his lies, calling him leader –
All our lives we listen to his sweet caressing words,
savoring each taste, longing for more.
We call upon him through lies hate lust and war.
Hardly, noticing the black within our chest,
Slowly eating;
He tempts us not more than our earthly bodies can bare,
promising us wealth glory and more.
So perfect these lies,
Our lives dissipated,
only our souls – aware
Hearts blinded, cheated, betrayed
our souls yearning, screaming, beating
for that which is our rightful King,
The light bringer,
the savior – from our sin.
The Messiah.

Do not be disordered,
tis not Lucifer –
He is not that which his name calls,
But simply a man who rose from the dead.
He by 3 is the rightful answer.

Only he is the one.

I am nothing without you

DownUp +31

When I am lost, I know you are there
You never leave me in times of trouble and despair
When I feel lonely and empty you are there to comfort me
People around me don’t know what I feel but you always know all about me
I never regret the time when I know you
Time comes that I forget you
You always touch my heart to go back to you
I am all alone from this moment, but you are there
Waiting for me to reach for you
Thank you for everything you done to my life
For the care and guidance everyday you given to me
I know I am nothing without you
All the things I have right now is nothing without you

Happiness on a mountain, my dreams are on another
Making them meet, is like seeing through the eyes of Stevie Wonder
Even if you try a boulder, it’s like a shrug off the shoulder
Here’s a penny for your thoughts, but a hundred dollars wouldn’t matter
My view is that of two mounds of a breast, couldn’t get any better
Through the valley of death, will be my last letter
Slice through an onion and you’ll feel my tears
Even if you shake me with your spears
I quit with no fears

You think you know someone but really you don’t.
You get so close to them and become best friends
After a while you get to see the real them.
You start getting in fights over stuff you never used to.
You start to not talk as much.
You don’t see each other anymore.
When you see them for the first time in a long time you only see a stranger.
A stranger I use to call my best friend.

I Don’t Need You

DownUp +20

You didn’t hurt me this time.
I didn’t feel anything when you told me you didn’t want to be with me.
I wasn’t sad.
I wasn’t mad.
I wasn’t upset.
I laughed actually.
because I knew that I didn’t need you to live.
I can live my life without you, I don’t need you. I didn’t know that before, but I do now.
You just made me feel better for a while.
Then I noticed that we just weren’t meant to be.
I sat on my bed and couldn’t believe I wasted my tears on you.
You weren’t worth them.
You just took my loneliness away for a while.
But that came back faster than you took it.
I was stupid for thinking I loved you.
You said everything you ever said to me was true.
But at the end of all this everything was a lie to me.

Why wait for someone
when you have a gut feeling they are not gonna wait for you?
why hold on to something
when you feel that they are going to move on?
well I’m not going to
cos in the end I’m gonna get hurt.
I got my stuff,
but do you have yours?
