In My Head
Memphis Storm Nov 2018
The banging won’t stop
The pounding keeps going
The screams keep echoing
The voices get louder
Even though I hear all these things
It’s all in my head

The last thing I said to him was
“As long as your happy then I am too.”
But I’m not happy
I’m crying -
I’m sad -
I’m selfish to think that I could ever be something such as that-
I’m selfish to think I could ever be happy
I was never happy and never will be
To think I thought I could ever be happy
To think I thought I could ever have that one thing
I’ll never be happy
But I guess it’s fine if he’s happy
Even if it’s not with me

Changing of the Seasons
Memphis Storm Nov 2018
Summer days slowly fade
As winter slowly came
Blistering heat no more
For chilly winds are to blame
Green trees now wilt
Green trees now have no leaves
No longer wanting cold
Now only wanting warmth
Now wanting someone to hold

Everything is happening
A blur of images in my eyes
Everything is spinning
I have no clue how stand straight anymore
Everything is changing
From one thing to another

You are...
Memphis Storm Nov 2018
You are everything
One of the stars in the night sky
Unique in every way

Are the Apple of my eye
Respectable and kind
Everything that I want to be

A genius in your own right
My favorite person
All the light in my life
Zip with energy
Incredible in everything you do
Non comparable to anyone else
Good to everyone you meet

Memphis Storm Nov 2018
For all I’ve done
For all I’m worth
It was for you in the long run

I know that it’s not for me
It’s meant for you

I know I’ll never be happy
That’s why I’ll try
To make you what I can’t be

I’ll make you laugh
I’ll make you smile
I’ll do it for you

I’ll give you what I can’t have
I’ll give you what I don’t have
I’ll give you what I won’t have

A single emotion
Something that brings everything to motion

Dead, Gone, Forever
Memphis Storm Nov 2018
Dead. Her brown gentle curls sprawling around on the concrete, slowly being touched with blood. Soft brown eyes, so wide of shock and fear of the events that had just occurred. Her body lays there mangled, and her limbs in every which direction in a uncomfortable position, not that she would feel it anyway. Her once yellow summer dress filled with white flowers is now stained an **** rust red.
     Gone. What once was filled with the very essence of pure life, now gone and is left with an empty shell. No longer will she walk down those bright city streets. No longer will she lay against the old tree, sketching out the ducks swimming in the pond. No more laughter to fill the deadly silence of a boring afternoon. No more pointless conversations just to talk about everything and anything. That’s all gone.
     Forever. She’s never coming back, not like when she would leave for work or go out for lunch with her many friends. She’s not going to come through the door and say “I’m home!” Or those soft “I’m back.” She’s never going to be here, not with me, and not with anyone. She is no more, like a flower, the most beautiful ones are picked and become dead. Forever she is gone and dead.

Dear, Cancer,
Memphis Storm Dec 2017
Dear Cancer,
For what reason is there to take someone precious?
Causes so much heartache, it causes so much depression.
To take someone we love, up to the sky above.
To hurt us in the heart, so much it makes us breathless, make us feel helpless.
Cause us to cry at night, to cry in pain for what we had lost that we wished was never taken away.
The skies turn grey as we wish for them to stay, but knowing it was too late.
Sincerely, The Families of your victims
My grandma has passed away from cancer. So I deceived to write out how I felt.#cancer #sad

I'm Like...
Memphis Storm Dec 2016
I'm like a piece of paper; blank*
Im like freshly fallen snow; cold
I'm like the tin man; no heart
*I'm like a ghost; no soul

Memphis Storm Dec 2016
My mind is flying
There's no way down
I don't know why I'm crying
There's an empty feeling
A fear of not knowing
Something is happening

My Mind
Memphis Storm Dec 2016
Everything is confusing
I don't know what is happening
I cant wrap my head around it
I'm drowning in my own thought's
I'm suffocating; no longer breathing
The storm came raging
The waves everywhere
I'm in a sea of confusion
I've lost my way
No way to navigate
I don't know where to look
I'll be gone at this rate

Memphis Storm Dec 2016
My heart is beating
And yet; I feel nothing
My skin is warm
And yet; I feel cold
My laugh echo's out
And yet; I'm sad
I do one thing
While feeling another
Why do I even bother
I smile, but I want to frown
I laugh, but I want to cry
I live, but I want to die

A Memory
Memphis Storm Nov 2016
Wind howling around*
And yet there is no sound
Images going by
One at a time
Only just a memory
A memory that is blurry
For we wish could happen and what does
Overlaps the true reality
A reality we cant face
Cause we are to scarred
And yet we still give chase
With everything going by
With the clock ticking
*I'm still not moving

Saying Goodbye
Memphis Storm Nov 2016
I want to say its going to be alright;
Then it would be just a lie
I want to say goodbye
Goodbye to you
Goodbye to the future I wanted with you
Goodbye to my fleeting memories;
As I'm consumed by nothing
So this is goodbye
Goodbye to you
Goodbye to us
Goodbye to our future
This is just a thought not actually happening just wanted to note this. Its about leaving someone dearly and being consumed by depression

An Act
Memphis Storm Nov 2016
I used to smile
Then I looked in the mirror
I could see clearly
That the reflection was not me
Not the one I see
This is not me
I realized who I am
Not someone who wears dresses;
bows and many more
I'm just a pitiful girl
Putting on an act
Lying through my teeth;
and not being me
I danced around the stage
Act all my parts in my play
I chose to be;
What everyone else wants to see
I'm just a girl hiding behind;
An Act

Memphis Storm Nov 2016
Life is so boring
Everything staying the same*
Nothing is ever changing
Sleep, Eat and Repeat
with everything else in between
Its so utterly boring
There is nothing exciting
Nothing to be occupied by
Nothing to fill our bored minds
Everything and anything are so;

Memphis Storm Oct 2016
She's crying everyday,
You see her eyes; bloodshot; from the pain
But you decide to just look away
Not saying a word
Not giving a care in the world
Bullied and teased
She's slipping away
She's been deceived
She's been betrayed
Left strayed
Left to suffocate
On your lies and embrace
Thinking she's a mistake
How she's a disgrace
Left with no one to explain
Alway's afraid, staying awake
Her vision grey
Waiting for the day;
The day that she fades...

— The End —
