Why can't my
Heart be empty?
Graham Oct 2019
Feelings in the shadow

Don't look down
There's an empty between what you may see
Darkness prevails so I'm blinded
But not from the tinglings you may feel
I'd go numb to forget
But nah, I love the feeling
But the feelings are intertwined with darkness
The shadows may be an illusion
What to do, I'm burnt
Between a mountain to conquer
But when conquered do the fallen rise again?
Do they feel within the shadows?
I'll just shine the light from my heart
Give thy life in my breath
To bring me back to life
To feel again what the butterflies once showed me
I'll embrace rather than shy away
In a land far far away
Happily eve after way, I'll tread
Atlast, I can see
I can see the light at the tunnel
Through your eyes
Through your heart
Your soul
Through your every touch..

I told someone
I wouldn't cry today
I lied, I had already started
Only she could not see
It was terrifying
I'm scared
In so much pain
I'm filled with sadness
I'm broken
I lost hope
My faith had vanished
There's no will left in me
If the devil had whispered into my ear
I would have listened
I had become the disappointment I envisioned for myself
It was terrifying
I'm scared
In so much pain
I'm filled with this darkness
Even the devil wouldn't get close to this broken vessel
I've lost all hope
There's no will left in me
I wouldn't cry today
I told someone.

Death craved my heart
She loved the scent of me
She moved to my every rhythm of thy beating heart
Death sent herself to me
She was beautiful
I played the long game
Hard to get; she smiled
Death to wrote love letters of condolences to me
Bringing me flowers in the process
Death tried to woo me with accidents
She even seduced me with suicidal thoughts
I struggled to get the thought of her out
She was beautiful made
I finally gave in..
Can I have this dance? She asked
With the undertakers theme song playing..
She took me out bungee jumping with a noose
And I soon fell in love.

The tears

My heart became dark
Loosing every ounce of redness to it's pump
So it became heavy
The thunderstorms were the aches that pained right through
The tears broke down my face
As every drop of storm was just the beginning
It poured and poured till there was no more
Till I became sickled to end the storm
There was gon' be light after the storm had passed
A symbol of hope I guess
But my heart had stopped
Underneath the storm I was..
All that was left is the cold I feel.

I felt his death
As he died in my arms
I could feel the thunder in my eyes
Assembling with the lightning
The tears waved through
Storming my eyes
Overflowing past my cheeks
I felt his death
As my heart became slow
I could feel the sadness brewing in my mind
Assembling with distraught
The pain waved through  my entire body
Overflowing down back to my bones
I felt his death
As he took his last breathe
I feel his body go cold
Assembling with no motion
The part he told be he'd be fine
Storming through my head
Overflowing towards my mind
I felt my death
As it stung a thousand times
I feel the tears of my loved ones
Assembling with the notion "Why couldn't I have seen it?
The part I always told them that I was fine
Storming through their heads
Overflowing towards their numbness
They felt my death.

All he ever wanted

All he ever wished for,
Was a friend
Someone he could share his silence with
There was no need for the daily consumption of socialism
He was involved between aloneness and loneliness
He was part of society's misgivings
He wasn't part of anything
Nothing was part of him
Not until she came along
A dark beautiful being
All he ever wanted
She whispered sweet nothings
Reminding him to forget
Making all happy thoughts expirable
A free wind ready to take me away
All he ever wished for.
