How do people keep on trying
As though their hearts aren't broken
With every rejection, each no?
We just can't control what'll happen
We wait for tides to ebb and flow
Knowing fully well we're only boats
Impatient pawns on a chess board
In a horrid storm that only grows.
Waiting listlessly for an end
Confiding in foes and secret friends
Now I'm entirely at a loss
Which of my coins will Fate toss?
Or will it even try something
Has it given up on me too?
Just as I've lost hope in myself
I know what's false, but what is true?

Giving up and losing hope.

I think I’m losing you but I will never regret choosing you.
Because I am in love and for now that will be enough for me.
The only ones who knew our love was eventually going to let go.
And everyone wanted me to know that we could not put on this show.

Without the consequences of this heart of mine being broken.
And when life teaches you to drive you can finally say goodbye.
All I can picture is the memory of you inside her sheets.
Wishing the memory that haunts my dreams would stay inside that suite.

The lips I grew to love forming the words I now know as goodbye.
And maybe one day we can talk about our past, or the weather.
Sometimes life will take a turn for the worst and sometimes life will hurt.
But at least I tried even when you found your way up her skirt.

And some days you will be afraid of the lessons you had to learn.
And some days you’ll burn because we always get what we feel we deserve.

The sonnet I tried to write for my Creative Writing class.

It's not your fault,
as I was the one.
I saw the roses growing in unexpected places,
I saw the walls burning down with expeditious intentions and no explanation
you'd think no one could here it happening,
yet I listened,
and i could hear his cries,
his oceans crashing into cliff sides.
I believed it.
And i did so, because when his oceans crashed into mine, it was a beauty god himself would have been jealous of.
Siren couldn't compete with the beauty that was our interactions, and they were flattered,
yet I have no matter.
Because her oceans,
found yours first
Yet I believed it when you said mine were bluer.

You can't save a loser
They have to save themselves.
No matter how you love them
You can’t breathe for someone else.
You can’t pay their emotional bills
With the love stored in your heart.
You can’t be with them 24/7
So it’s best for you to start
Waking to reality’s demands
And wash your hands
Of this self-destructive fantasy.
Soon, even they will understand.

And if they don’t see wisdom
In what you are trying to do
Let them go on and ruin their life
But it won’t be because of you.
Maybe you think it is too late
Because you spoiled them already,
So now they need your guiding hand
To keep their courses steady.

If you’re strong enough to realize
You’re not helping them a bit
You can gather enough love
And strength enough to quit
Babying someone who today
Is no longer just a little child.
Let them find their own rock bottom
At the risk of being totally wild.
It’s really the only thing to do.
So, if you are the wife, the friend;
Sister, father, brother or mother,
You will find you have the time
For you and the loser to recover.

No one understands why I cry
   myself to sleep everyday
Soaking the pillow while I try
   to mend the mistakes of each day,
The mistakes of the past
   and the mistakes of the future
For all my relationships may never last
   as hurting people seems to be my nature.

"Everything is going to be alright."

Man o Man the man's a moron
completely through and through
he says "I could've beaten Hilary"
what an unintelligent type of fool

I have no doubt, would have changed the stage
Trump not knowing, how to attack his twin
advisors in a quandary, no speech upon the page
not all that sure, either could, be pulling off the spin

If you're looking for wishy washy
then Biden is your man
a brain that's squishy squashy
totally, without a plan

Seriously, after everything, after all the crap he's shoveled.
"I could've beat Hillary" rings like your sibling in the backseat on a long trip "she's touching me" screamed as loud as possible.

In my entourage
people laugh
I got used to it.

In my center stage
I was the comedian
who never likes
his job.

In my closing remarks
their entertainment
was fulfilled.
I on the other hand
got drained
from my mistakes
turned to be pretty
never was that
my intention.

i guess i got used to it, being laugh at. a job that im forever tainted
well its okay, im good, im still strong to pull through, soon I'll get
out of this....

thanks, for reading
sometimes we just
needed to let this out
of our system...

Stole what they could, destroyed the best
encrypted the remains, ransomed the rest
They found a way in, probably electronic mail
sneaking like a weasel, and all, that entails

Shrieking in glee, streaming the Internet
reveling with cronies, they've never seen, or met
Socially awkward children, living in the liquid crystal glow
holding their virginity, fan boys, wallowing a hero show

Black hats worn, in darkened caves
darknet files, and tools that they've saved
Fat fingers fly, on gaming boards
over twinky crumbs, and hot pocket hoards

Hacker hacker, not found everywhere
hacking machines, on whim, and a dare
When dinner is served, Mommy will call
waddling from the basement, and slinking the hall

Ya gotta wonder how pale and sad such a life would be...

They say if you want to know where your heart is
Look at where your mind wanders to
I guess my heart is still with you
As you are the only thing playing around in my mind
I cannot seem to get over you
Like you have gotten over me

Wanders of the heart
Never thought you'd get to me like this
it's fascinating that the flame we lit together
Is now burning all the bridges between us
And the love we had, has vanished without a trace
It looked like a race
And the winner would be the one who falls out of love first
I guess you won and I'm the sore loser

I'd rather hear a bird sing than a dog bark
do you see the light or watch the dark?

I'd rather feel fresh air than a desk-top fan
do you want to run a race not already ran?

I'd rather read your face than see your e-mail
do you wish your best laid plans didn't fail?

I'd rather be a happy loser than a winning sinner
do you prefer a restaurant to a TV dinner?

I'd rather smell the flowers than a burning barbecue
are your funds empty when bills are over-due?

I'd rather make a positive difference with everything I've got
are you true to yourself or someone you're not?
