I am me

DownUp +8

I am me,
I just wanted to be free.
But all I could see
Is who you wanted me to be.

I longed to soar
to know I deserved more
you couldn’t open your eyes
And Look through my disguise

As I screamed with rage
in that gilded cage
Your love, it decieved
Silly me, I believed
Your pathetic lie
Then you said good bye

From that day on
I grew strong
I saw we didn’t belong
In the world of “ever after”
It was just a disaster.

Now I am free
Could it be
It’s time for me?

Friends !

So many folk I have known in my life
sharing the sorrow the joy and the strife
chums at the school that I knew oh so well
who went off to war and in foreign fields fell
girls at the school who went on to dance
and some that I even took out to romance
family and friends that are scattered all over
who all sailed away from the white cliffs of Dover
pals that I knew in the pubs and the clubs
some now long gone to the sky up above
they shared our sorrow our joys and emotions
and rejoiced with us if we got promotion
I think of them often all the ones that I knew
In the army in wartime that bright happy crew
Where are they now I muse and I ponder
Are they alive are they dead I sit and I wonder
Their faces I see at times in my dreams
As I ponder the purpose of life and it’s schemes
Where have they gone all these men that I knew
Who served in the colours of the red white and blue
We all swore to write and to all keep in touch
But with all of those names it was really too much
For we all live our lives in our own present sphere
And socialise gladly with the folks who are here
Fond memories fade as the years they pass by
And some of the sadness can make us all cry
But the past is a memory fading too soon
And the morning of life has become afternoon
Then as we move on into the gentle twilight
Be prepared for the dark as we move into night
And as we sail undisturbed across life’s tranquil lake
We arise in the dawn as we then all awake
For with all of these friends that we all have known
It is soothing to know we are never alone

A break up

DownUp 0

Out of sight out of mind
what a load of crap
because even when im not thinking about you
im thinking about you
and i know how crazy that sounds
but that’s how messed up in the head he has left me
he was the sane in my insanity
so the thought of us being over never occurred to me

why is it that after a break up
your ex is on your mind more then he ever was
i mean i was doin fine
until i started flipping through channels
and stumbled across one of your favorite movies
that you thought liked too,
i didn’t
i was just willing to watch anything to be close to you

hell i almost made it through today without
thinking about you
but then it happened
a memory of you triggered by a
a moment we shared
one midnight summer night
you know what im talking about right
remember when we almost got caught
how excited you were
and how i excited i was not
yeah thats the spot..
that memory fadded
just as fast as you did
out of my life
pulling a disappearing act.
i guess today wasn’t the day to get you off my mind

so you see even when I’m not thinking about you
I’m thinking about you
out of sight out of mind
what a load of crap
i starred at your face so long when we were together
that it burned your image into my mind
so that if i one day grew blind i could
still see you
your image has been painted into the lining of my stomach
i was so full on you
he was the little boy into my Hiroshima and the fat man into
my Nagasaki
you should see the mark
left on my heart
from your blast

if its true what they say that body language speaks volumes
then i hope that this extended single finger that i stretch out to you
and all men like you
tells you more of how i feel about you then i could ever scream to you…

Sweetest Dreams

DownUp +1

In my dreams he can’t hurt me…
In my dreams its back to the way things were…
The times we were happy…
The times we loved each other and knew it…
The times we only saw each other…
The times that there was no heartache…
The times when my heart wasn’t broken by him all the time…
The time when he and I were so in love…
But I know it wont happen…
Only in my dreams…
The sweetest dreams…

I Don’t Need You

DownUp +21

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?

Why all of a sudden did you have to change?
Why in the world did you begin acting so strange?
Why did you let things change your mind?
Why was it so easy to leave me behind?
Why have you let go of who you really are ?
Why did you pretend our relationship would go so far?
Why did you make promises to stick by my side?
Why couldn’t we make it thru this last and final ride?
Why did you give up on me, what did I do?
Why did you let another man take my place of being with you?
Why am I so stuck on you, I really don’t know?
Why cant it be so easy for me just to let go?
Why you chose this path is beyond my control?
Why now do I have to rebuild my mind, body, and soul?
Why am I looking back, I guess to say goodbye?
Why I wrote this poem, just to ask why?
