Give me a place in your heartland

DownUp +3

I was never so lost…
that anything i do,
I can’t stop myself thinking about you.

I gazed at you when the first time we met…
I couldn’t sleep that night till the clock in the morning struck nine,
praying-‘please God, make thou mine’.

I can’t forget the days we spent together
My eyes were on before time, i don’t know why,
now as those have passed, i only cry.

Whenever we come across
A hope rots that you’ll at least say hi,
but that’s broken in two pieces, as you pass by.

I wish
a day will come when you’ll understand,
and give me a place in your heartland.

(The question still remains unanswered…)

Demon within

DownUp +2

Everyone has a key,
A key into my mind,
They turn the key,
And they search,

They find my weakness,
And use it against me,
Why would they want to do that?
Do they want to destroy me?

Then they find it,
They find the demon within me,
For so long it was locked away,
Locked away in a cage,

Now that that cage is open,
The demon is unleashed,
They let it out,
And it won’t go back in,

No one can tame the beast,
Not even I,
But this demon, this beast,
This monster won’t back down,

I am the monster,
I am the beast, the demon,
Someone needs to get that cage,
And lock the demon away forever.

My Rose

DownUp +3

By nights long slumber
Never heeding my aching sorrow
Once again alone in nights cold clutch
Been so stupefied by emotion
Sight limited by clouding fear
Liquid runs down smooth but rocky cheeks
Self proceeds to wrongs rights
Voices commencing their anguish
Others their loath

Day by sun, night by moon
Neglecting their beautiful shine for me
Darkness swallows, and tastes bitter
Sewn eyes stay locked closed
Free eyes closed from hurt
Set my heart to flames
Then Dance in its painful light
Listen to it sizzle
And smile in delight

But is that who you are?
My wilting rose
Blossoming but again I cut your stem
How long will it be till your petals plunge?
Can I save what I nearly killed?
Everything’s more beautiful in their natural belonging
But is it you
My rose…
That belongs in nature or inside
In nature you fight the seasons
Inside you are free
Inside I can see you, hold you and care for you
Outside I can only visit
But is that what you want my beautiful flower?

In reality one deserves what one gets
No matter what they are or who they are
Whether you are the flower
Or the scissors that cut it
How many more years will it be the flowers will keep forgiving?
Or maybe they never forgave and we keep cutting

Please Come Back, I Miss You

DownUp +5

Your always gone
I feel like I’m just your pawn
We use to lay all night waiting until it was dawn
But now that’s all gone
When you lay next to me
It was like we where in harmony
I miss you
You know that’s true
Me and you use to be attached like glue
We used to row in a canoe
Into the sun we use to drift
I’m still holding onto your gift
You never call
When we where together, I thaw
I miss you
You know that’s true
Our love use to grow
But now I know
Your always gone
I’m so withdrawn
I’m so alone
Please come back home

I May Love You

DownUp +3

I see your smile,
My butterflies awake.
The twinkle in your eye,
How do I forsake?

How I do wish I was of older age,
Although me and you aren’t impossible,
If only you could see what’s going on inside,
If only I could send a signal.

I think it’s hard,
For anyone to feel for you the way I do.
My heart skips a beat,
When I’m in contact with you.

There’s a slender tone to your voice,
I hear the echo’s throughout.
My feeling grow stronger every day,
But whereas yours I truly doubt.

If only you knew,
The love I long to give.
The true feelings I go through,
Could I ever outlive?

I long deep affection,
I’m fired with intense feeling.
Without the threat of utter let down,
I would be more revealing.

Is this love?
Or just a silly crush.
The feelings inside,
How I do care so much.

People think I’m stupid,
But I know this thing is true.
If only I could say this to your face,
The fact I may love you…..

Summer Vacation

DownUp +29

When summer vacation started
We got a big break from school
We played all the time
And tried to stay cool

Our hearts were filled with joy
When we got such a big break
To eat yummy ice creams,
We could not wait

We were free
To do anything we like-
Playing all the time
Or riding our bike

It was a wonderful Vacation
A big sensation
For using imagination,
A lovely creation

Now the pain has ended.
And I can only feel the worries of life creeping up to my dreams.
Those dreams that have become nightmares.
Nightmares that are no more than reality.

I have been told I act like him.
Is this true?
Will I end up like him?
The father he was to me but the father he isn’t.
Will I walk out on my family’s dreams? Only to be seen in their nightmares.

The tears stopped rolling down my cheeks.
The happiness is gaining acceptance in my cold life.
But the sorrow remains.
Not only for the tears.
For the memories I have wasted on no memories at all.
