it’s a long walk back
I said
we walked here earlier
you said
I know but
the  grass looked greener
sad like her cheeks when she forces a smile
dry like her lips when she kisses my cheeks
lost like her expressions when she stares into the darkness
Quivering like her voice when she lies that she's okay
Deaf like her ears when she slips  back into her void
tired as her eyes when she hasn't slept all night
Yellow as the pills she places on her tongue
And red as the wine she gulps them down with

If you ever wonder what depression looks like
It looks like my mother's face
Lying, thinking
Last night
How to find my soul a home
Where water is not thirsty
And bread loaf is not stone
I came up with one thing
And I don't believe I'm wrong
That nobody,
But nobody
Can make it out here alone.

Alone, all alone
Nobody, but nobody
Can make it out here alone.

There are some millionaires
With money they can't use
Their wives run round like banshees
Their children sing the blues
They've got expensive doctors
To cure their hearts of stone.
But nobody
No, nobody
Can make it out here alone.

Alone, all alone
Nobody, but nobody
Can make it out here alone.

Now if you listen closely
I'll tell you what I know
Storm clouds are gathering
The wind is gonna blow
The race of man is suffering
And I can hear the moan,
'Cause nobody,
But nobody
Can make it out here alone.

Alone, all alone
Nobody, but nobody
Can make it out here alone.
I used to read your poems
but lately you don't write
you're silent and aloof
you know that isn't right.
You can't close a door once opened
you can't abolish all your dreams
you're a poet of the heart
mustn't fall apart at the seams.
Say what you can in words
they speak the message true
spoken from the heart
the poems will see you through.
A hermit's not your style
a recluse, you are not
never give up writing
of things that you've been taught.
I used to read your poems
I'd read them once again
if you would send them out
(this one's from a poet friend)
She was beautiful
She was kind
She was  loving
Always on my mind.
She was a gift, always full of life
I wanted to stay, forever with her
Now she is ugly,
Cruel and wicked
She is always on my mind,
But not in a good way
She's a burden
That steals even the smallest life
She scares me
So I want to leave her
Yet I want to fix her
She is still irreplaceable
No matter how horrible she gets
If you understand what I'm talking about, leave a comment
The sky is red
The ground is wet
Chaos is loose
And order is caged.
But in the middle of it all
I see you.
In the middle of the world
I see your destruction
Your pain and shame
Moving all around
I am not good
I know
But what is your definition of good
Is it being like you
Is it defined by the ability to watch others suffer
Is it defined by your greed
Does my lacked of hatred soil your good
Does it make "it" bad?
If so I'd rather stay a bad monster,
Than a "good" human.
My chest is heavy
My eyes wet
I had to let go
But I wish you did it first
We couldn't be together
Couldn't even be friends
Our worlds were different
Even though we're both on earth
So I had to let go
Just wish you didn't care
I remember it like yesterday
Her wonderful smile
That hid her lies
The way she hugged me
Her arms wrapped around me
The way her lips felt on mine
The way she made my heart dance
She was beautiful
She was my all
An angel with a soft spot
For pitiful men like me
loving her is
dreaming of tropical sunsets
while stuck up on a blizzard
believing her is
driving fast on the highway
with ***** in your blood
wanting her is
hoping for the snow to fall
in the month of July
kissing her is
chewing the pieces of your own broken heart one by one
but that shouldn't stop you from
-loving her
-believing her
-wanting her and
-kissing her
her rise might lead to your end
her smile might leave you distressed
you might land up in situations, you can't comprehend
but isn't what you signed up for when you chose her over me
so you are not allowed to give up on her
not now
not ever
Tell her that you love her despite her flaws, believe in her ability to fight her demons, make her feel wanted for everything that she is and when she gets tired of fighting kiss her gently and lie down with her. Love her more than you ever loved me. Your love can be her only savior. Please don't let me down this time.
