The beauty that once surrounded me

DownUp +15

I look around me and I find the things I’ve seen have made me blind.
I can no longer look and see the beauty that once surrounded me.
I see the world with eyes anew, the greed and hate, intolerance too, have taken over to leave behind a landscape bare of all that’s kind.

Once we shared and shared alike. Our homes and hearts were open too.
What we had was there for all.” What’s mine is yours” was all the tone.
Now “What’s yours is mine, what’s mine’s my own”

I dream that things will change again, that new will not be the end.
That we will save the things we have. Not cast aside as fashioned slave.
The desire, greed and envy trend will fade as we make do and mend.

Our world would avoid the change in nature as men’s natures grew.
In taking less and giving more, we feed the hungry, help the poor.
A wealth that we have never known is there for all, no man alone.
No lottery, no selfish gain. A richness we had lost is found.
Life’s joy and happiness laughter sound.

Like we used to

DownUp +23

I look at her and then at you.
I realize what this comes to.
You’re eyes directly avoid my stare.
My heart is broken and you don’t care.

I look at her and then at you.
I can’t accept the fact we’re through.
The very last time we hugged.
I admitted you were the first boy I ever loved.

I look at her and then at you.
You won’t ever understand the pain you put me through.
Each day I cry from memories with you.
You hurt me; something you promised you would never to do.

I look at her and then at you.
Do you do anything like we used to.
Either way I’ll never know.
Your heart is just to dark to ever show.

What is Love?

DownUp +3

I looked at you,
You looked at me.
We looked in each others’ eyes,
I almost melted and caved.
I miss you,
I miss us.
What happened?
I always wonder, was it my fault?
It couldn’t have been!
We both got hurt,
We both lost each other,
What can we do?
Start over?
But then it starts all over again.
What is love?
Love is complicated,
Love is Magic and Confusing.
Love is when both partners are:
Loyal to each other,
Open with each other,
Voluntarily holding onto each other.
and finally,
Enjoy one another through it all.
Love is when you can pass through all the arguments,
and still be together.
Do I love you?
Of course, no doubt about that.
Otherwise I wouldn’t have cared about you so much,
even after you left.
But the question is,
Do you truly love me?

I’m sorry

DownUp +3

I love the way we work,
I love the way we talk as one,
But I’m sorry love this is confusing me so much,
The way we work isn’t working for me any more,
The confusing part is that I love you so much but I’m sorry I can’t go on any longer,
I’m sorry my mistake has led you on,
I’m sorry my love has failed you,
I’m sorry my love.

Sorry

DownUp +14

If you say you’ll take me back,
I’ll take you back,
if you say I love you,
I’ll be in love with you,
but I won’t interfere,
I won’t try to get my way,
because I had my chance,
and I screwed up,
sorry,
I don’t expect a second chance,
but if I do get one
I promise it will be different this time around.

What Is Love

DownUp +1

What is Love?
Love Conquers all
It even catches me when I fall
That feeling inside that breaks me down and reveals my pride,
when I try to hide.
Asking that question?
What is Love?
Is it sent from the one above?
or is it a feeling that makes you feel
scared or trapped?
What is love?
Does it define you?
I may have a clue
Love?
It defines me, It can’t be complete without a two part harmony, because why?
Love Conquers All

Pretty Girl

DownUp +49

Pretty girl with gray eyes
Heart full of hurt all based on lies
She lays awake at night
Trying not to cry
But the tears steady flow
As she runs to the door
Trying to escape a world
Of hate, pain and lies
Wanting and demanding what
They can never have
“Leave me alone”
She wants to shout
But nothing came out
Just a blank look
As they scream and shout
