A Sweetheart

DownUp +3

A sweetheart is one of God’s greatest creations.
Whose love brings to the heart.
A sweet sensation.

She makes everyday worth living.
Her love is always there for the giving.
A love that makes sorrow take flight.
That lights up the heart.
Like fireflies light up the night.

Invisible Wall

DownUp -2

I’m trying to reach you,
But there is a Wall.
This wall is nothing,
But to me it keeps me from talking.
This wall doesn’t let me talk,
I want to speak my mind.
This wall is all around me,
It doesn’t fall down and crumble.
I want to talk to you,
But when i get close i hit against it.
I was to speak freely,
but this wall is heavy against me.
I can feel the pressure,
I can see the wall pushing me.
But want to talk to you,
But i can’t because its my feeling.

Promise of the future

DownUp +13

Worlds and beyond I must say
are where my dreams lie
They go far beyond the visible sky
And deep beneath the sea floor
Even through the darkest hour I say,
I see my future so bright
Like the undeniable shine of the sun
So loud it echoes those of my dreams
Then I know I will get there now or later
For the promise of the future is so near
That I can almost feel it with the touch of my hand

Grave Thoughts

DownUp +47

No longer am I breathing,
As I lie beneath the ground,
Though once my rage was seething,
It does not make a sound,

My heart which was pounding,
Is lifeless in my chest,
My virtue, so resending,
I did it for the best,

Many dead lay at me feet,
And now I lie at theirs,
My assignments I did try to meet,
And honour my forebears,

My lungs which once were gasping,
Are airless in the earth,
The memories, ever grasping,
I’ll have no second birth,

The deaths I caused are countless,
And yet I buried none,
So many call me heartless,
For killing their beloved sons,

I was a devoted Nazi,
Or perhaps a mindless slave,
For no one comes to mourn me,
Or lay flowers at my grave.

Butterfly

DownUp +12

When you left me, butterfly,you took a part of me.
for now i feel so empty, just like a hollow tree.
when i met you, butterfly, you looked so sweet and kind.
we looked each other in the eyes, and i knew that you were mine.
why’d they take you butterfly, you didn’t want to die.
all you did was spread you’re wings, and up and up you’d fly.
it all happened in the springtime, it was either March or May.
every tree we would climb, every minute spent was play.
i had loved you butterfly, but thta you didn’t know.
We would always be together, through sun, or rain, or snow.
if i had told you of my love, you wouldn’t have to go.
i knew that something happened the day you didn’t show.
i tried to watch t.v but the only thing was news,
just a bad actor talking and an old man singing blues.
Unitll i got to twenty eight, it was there that my heart stopped.
what i saw almost made me faint, my heart shattered as it dropped.
for there i saw your picture, you looked so kind and sweet.
but what the camera showed, was you sprawled there on the street
they wanted me to go outside, to go run along and play
but i would rather stay inside, it was a sad and lonely day.
fly away butterfly, for you are in my heart.
and even though we’re not together, we’ll never be apart.

Until Then and As Of Now

DownUp +19

You tell lies like a second language
Oh you learned it well
You break hearts like a force of habit
It must come natural
It’s just another game to you
You must be on your winning streak
You see these tears fall down my face
A replayed seen viewed too often

This heartache asphyxiates me
And you stand there breathing easy
I am drowning in my suffering
While you stand on shore watching carelessly
As if you don’t even notice..

One day maybe you will see
That I loved you
But my heart can not bear this pain much longer

So Until then,
and as of now,

Farewell my dear..
I must let go.

Butterfly

DownUp +11

She opens her eyes and stretches her wings.
She flies underneath the golden sun.
Wings in a pattern of purple and blue
Peacefully fluttering just about the yellow dandelions.
Her and her beautiful wings.
