You & I

Once I believed

In all the promise of our future

For I was lost and broken

and yearned to find the song within my soul

What I thought could only be a distant wish

Soon became the reality

I so desperately wanted to see

with time I was healed

found my way in the world

I even felt my soul beginning to sing again

but now despite how far we have come

the battle still rages between us

I am afraid it was all an illusion

for how can you and I be real

when you tell me I should not sing the song in my soul?

The Box

more sickening than the senseless

tears of a young girl is,

your deceitful manner,

your careless abuse of those

so impressionable around

you &

your smile which masks it all

your carefree attitude misleading

your adoring fans to the

degradation you cause others

How surprising your Boldness

Caresses the innocent to the

point of trust

only to enclose them in THE

BOX of eternal terror

that will never let them

forget their mistakes

and I will never let you forget yours

Fellini: “Lies are fascinating for what they reveal about the liar.” (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

My fears are

coming true

your words

were lies

always denying

the truth

why couldn’t

I see through

your games?

I guess I always

knew you were

a liar

but I wouldn’t

admit it

I wanted to

believe you cared

I wanted to

believe your promises

were true

Out of your darkness

my best enemy, my worst friend

my best enemy, my worst friend (Photo credit: eggrole)

 

Jeopardizing everything

 

to stand by your side

 

& for what?

 

Only for you to use my friendship

 

for your advancement

 

and my downfall

 

Isn’t a true friend there

 

to lift you up,

 

not drag you down?

 

The blinders have been removed

 

but why did it take so long?

 

Now I am left with the decision

 

where to go from

 

here

 

Still questioning why it took

 

so long to see

 

the light

 

while hidden in your darkness

 

But you-you must remain

 

for you must find your

 

own way to the light

 

The realization that a dear friend has become toxic

Finding smiles

Something's Got to Give

Something’s Got to Give (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

It has been so long

since I have tried

to form my feelings

into these words

so much has changed

I can no longer worry

about the little things

that caused such turmoil

in the past

I have too much to look after

too much to do right

but

somethings haven’t changed

like the sadness

in my heart

knowing that you

and I

will probably never see eye to eye

we have built this life

together

but what is it all for-

If we never have a day

of real happiness?

I have learned to find my smiles

in the eyes of the innocent

she does not comprehend

the intricacies of life

or the distance that grows between us

-I wrote this about the struggle of a failing marriage when there is a child involved

Self Preservation

Truth lies

Truth lies (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I’m lost in my confusion

it leaves me

cold & empty

quietly I try to

realize the truth

They tell me of your lies

but when your

holding me

I hope they are

wrong

maybe they just

don’t know you

maybe your lies

are true

I cannot let

myself be fooled

again

so I may give

up & walk away from

you

never knowing if

your words were

true

never giving

you the chance

to hurt me
