Nonsense and misery,
But I'm usually happy!

I'm a father and a scientist of sorts, in that order.

If you knew the landing were made of swords,
Would you jump?

If you saw the bridge collapse, descending to the deep,
Would you follow?

If you had to rewatch your life at heavens gate,
Would you regret?

If you knew my touch were poison,
Would you accept it?

If you knew your actions had consequences,
Would you lie with him again?

Then why do you return to me,
And fall down on your knees
Begging for what I cannot give

If you knew I'd say the same,
Scream at you to leave,
Would you go back and treat me that way again?

An idea from reading one of Lori Jones Mcaffery's works, where knowing something is nothing does not always stop us. Consequences cannot always deter us from stupid, hurtful actions. Appreciate feedback <3

Three times nothing is nothing
Why do you keep going back
Haven't you had enough nothing
To last til forever and back.

I was told poems mustn't rhyme
Those that do show infantile minds
A child can rhyme two with glue
Or find a metaphor for the sky being blue

Rhymes are easy
Essence is hard
I use conventional flow
As my not-so-trump trump card

Stop. Branch out.
Find the words to reach deep down.
The soul wrencher's
The tear jerkers
The love felt on a whim
From first sight
Unable to project true depth
Just imagery
The easy kind
.
.
.

Stick to the rhymes for now
Best to do what you know how

Appreciate feedback <3

We've always known of the two that dwell within
Taught that neither,
ever could completely win
But there's no joy in not trying, no feeling of relief
When the one worthy of a throne
Must be made a thief

We've always seen the duality in reflection
The road to hell as simple misdirection
A place made for sinners,
Where the eternal night always wins
& the good had been forgiving evil ever since

maybe our faith was no more than hope
That the abandoned one will come again
A glimmer on the horizons,
Sign of the cross in the skies
To defeat the fire that was passed down to man

We've always known of the two that dwell within
Remembering that even Jesus
Had an evil twin
Whose hands carried the steel
Whose words have cursed our days
Whose torches, carried by our brothers
Set the world ablaze

We've always seen the duality in reflection
But a divided world is a misconception
There were just different colors
Given to the waves
To make slaves of kings, & new kings from slaves

'cause man is made of water
we're just like the sea
reflecting the skies when the surface is clear
our primal home was the ocean
the stillness in the endless motion
the will to make all life around us disappear

we made the Sun burn out
& we'll bring the rains
but not even in a thousand years
will they wash away the stains

Giggle giggle fart fart
chuckle chuckle hard heart.
Lose the formal wording part,
just rhyme with nonsense works of art

Fart art
Words are art
Parts of art
Those parts of art seen with your
hard heart
Soften up and see the humour
With a giggle giggle fart fart

My son laughed so it made it on here <3

INSOMNIA 2
             All
              I
             Need is
             More
             Of the
             Sandman's sand
             Nodding off to
             Imagination land

Good night

Unattainable Sleep

INSOMNIA

             I beat the Sandman
             Now I lay in limbo
             Sleep set to
             Off
             Mode
             Nobody
             Is truly
            Awake
