Played

DownUp +38

You asked me out, I said yes
3 hours later I found your dirty mess,
Girls, cheated on, dumped and I was next,
I wasn’t gonna be played, so not impressed,
I dumped you then I realized,
I just beat the player at his own game,

Too many girls felt weak to there knees,
I stayed strong,
I wasn’t afraid to break a nail,
I used my power and let you go,
So you could go sink.

Gone

DownUp +47

She wore a broken smile
For just a little while.
She’d paint it on everyday
For no certain reason,
Not the color of the season,
The simple shade of gray.
The shameful walk,
Oh if walls could talk
I wonder what they’d say.
“There she goes,
No one knows
How she begged him to stay”.
But she stood there so confused
That night, broken and used
And watched him drive away.
Black rivers roll down her face
His love no one can ever replace.
A scar this deep will stay.
A river of red,
A concrete bed
Is where she will now lay.

Gone

DownUp +13

The steps became quiet
your figure faded
your taste left in my mouth
you said you loved before but not like this
I was young and in love
so stupid to get it
I can’t figure it out why you did this
maybe the girl I was then is different
changed and grown not so frisky
memories start to fade and more things I get
my heart is held together with glue and stitches
you were gone nothing was left
I wanted you back
how sad is that
I’m so through with that
cos honestly you turned out to be the best thing that left

You need to know

DownUp +30

You need to know that God loves you,
You need to know that he cares,
You need to know he’ll help you out,
Because he is always there.

So now you know he’s there for you,
And you can be so very proud,
That you did have someone to talk to,
And he’s up there in the clouds.

Without You

DownUp +10

A glimpse of light
In the midst of night
When everything is as black as the galaxy without stars
When things are as thick as a red velvet blood
A stained soul is who I am
Without you

A ray of hope
Deep inside the abyssal sea
When my soul is lifeless as the Dead Sea
When my heart is frozen as hard as a diamond
A wondering ghoul is what I am
Without you

Without you I feel empty as a void
Loss with no place to go
Incomplete like an unfinished puzzle scattered on the ground
Unsatisfied of this everlasting desire
Broken
Without you

Meaningless

DownUp +7

When a man is hindered to indulge love
Or perhaps anything that associates within it
A man is lost in the deep endless void
The man is incomplete… unable to revive
No words, no songs, not even Shakespeare’s sonnets can comprehend

When a man is rejected from his rights to love or be loved
Or perhaps anything that associates within it
He has lost the primary goal in life
He is trapped in love’s puzzle… paradoxed
No friends, no family, not even Aphrodite can substitute

When a man’s love is unrequited
Or perhaps anything that associates within it
His love and hope is once rejected
His spirit to live starts to faint… subsequently his life
No shrink, no wealth/fame, not even the fountain of youth can re-offer

The worst of all is when the man knows
The man knows deep within himself
That the reason why he has no love
Why he is lost, trapped, and fainted
Was his and only his fault

The guilt the sorrow the regret
Is devouring from within
Literally reaps him slowly
The Grim himself has admitted
That unrequited love is the worst way to die

Time itself slows down to make the man suffer
Cronus speaks, “Let him die as slow as he possibly could…
Let him savor the outcome of his own actions
Let us sedate the time from dusk to dawn…
Let him mourn for the touch that he did not deserve”

Shakespeare’s poems could not comprehend
Aphrodite herself could not substitute
The fountain of youth’s offer means nothing
Reaper’s scythe defeated of its power
Cronus prolonged the time of suffering

All chances I’ve wasted
To win I’m defeated
To live I’ve seen no meaning
“Give up” my conscience’s song
“Take that one more step, towards life’s denouement”

Forgetting You

DownUp +14

Finally forgetting you, because you do not belong in my heart.
Finally forgetting you because, you can always move on to the next.
Finally forgetting you, because the love I gave to you wasn’t near enough of what you wanted from me.
Finally forgetting you, because you truly do not deserve a BEAUTIFUL soul like me.
Finally forgetting you, because I’m wasting my time here with you.
Finally forgetting you, because my tears aren’t worth the laughs you probably are sharing right now.
Finally forgetting you, because we aren’t meant to be and you have to go…
I’m sorry but Good-bye.
