Swallowed in a sea of black
The perpetual motion above me keeping me sane
In a desperate race to understand
I never want to feel your pain again

Leave me alone
Just leave me be
I thought I was free of this mindless pursuit
Some things just won’t lay to rest
I’m fine just kinda chilling
Ickabobroe Nov 2018
Those who are lost can be found
Those who seem found may be lost
Those who may help the lost be found, may be both

Some will make others feel lost
Just to try and find themselves
Even if they can’t

Be the light
Show those who may be lost
Help them find the way to where they can be found

What is love?
A chemical?
A feeling?
The rush of knowing who is there for you?

no.

There is no comprehensible way to describe love

There is no single feeling to show love

There is no definite's in the world of love

but.

When you know love?

Don't let go

Doesn’t matter what it is
Who it’s for
Or when it comes

Just don’t push it out
Ickabobroe Feb 27
Mannequins
Staring blankly
Motionless
Unfeeling
Yet fearful
Scared of what comes next
As they cannot do anything
To prevent it

Maybe we have chemistry

Maybe we have math

Maybe we have writing or reading or feelings that have passed

Maybe I’m annoying

Maybe I’m too bland

Maybe I’m just simply something you don’t understand

Maybe I still love you

Maybe I might not

Maybe I still crave the things we said but never got

Maybe I’m a nuisance

Maybe I’m just wrong

Maybe all I really need is myself all along
wow the beginning of this one is dumb, its fine though its casual

Music is the root of all
Inspiring good and evil
To show people the light
And the dark
Pain
Happiness
The drummer boy
Pushing the dreams of the troops
The beginning
The end
Music
Silence
Nothings

Why am I the way I am
Why don’t I like my choices
Why am I so regretful in life
It’s simply my nature

It’s just the way I am
It’s just the choices I make
It’s the regrets I face
It’s simply my nature

If that’s just how you are
If those are your choices
If that’s the reason for my regrets
It’s simply your nature

If I still can’t let go
If I overthink everything I do
And keep looking at the past
I can’t stand my nature

Imagine if I was normal
With normal thoughts and normal feelings
In a normal family in a normal house

But why be normal
Because if I were normal



I wouldn't have you
**** why does everything I touch have to go to ****
Ickabobroe Feb 27
When i tell you I'm ok
I could be living
I could be dying

When I say I'm alright
I might be doing great
I could also be breaking down

When I'm fine
I could be happy
Or I could be crashing

But when I say I promise
I mean it

Maybe I’ll finally start writing well
When I finally figure out who I’m writing about
Because it always starts with you
But I really don’t mind
Y’all I can’t even express how amazing last week was
Ickabobroe Dec 2018
You're hurting me more than you'll ever realize
You're causing me more pain than you'll ever imagine
but like the candle to the flame
the flame gives the candle life
and yet slowly brings upon it's death
You deteriorate me
Break me down to dust
And yet like the pheonix
I am reborn

The paper picks up the marks
And only after it is tainted
Is it beautiful
Ickabobroe Mar 12
The sailor looks upon the horizon
Seeing a beautiful isle
Waves the crew to dock
Heading for the shore

As he reaches his destination
He sees sweet fruits
Tall trees and shade
And long elegant beaches

The sailor looks out
Back at the sea
Remembers his sense of love
But pushes it down with another drink

After time
The sailor cannot take it
And as nobody else shall leave
He takes a boat and makes way

Weeks later in the open ocean
Weak and dying, hungry and thirsty
He closes his eyes
Then a smile portrudes
Ickabobroe Apr 16
Push me away all you want
Love me and cast me astray
End my soul and show me darkness
Allow me to leave on my own
Send me your condolences
Envy my happiness
Idk just something I wrote
Ickabobroe May 1
What gives you the right
What power do you derive authority from
And yet you come and act like you're in charge
Or you have some divine permission

Alas why but not to know
Come my bitter heart from within
Asking why you never notice me
Or why you can't accept your fault

I mean no disrespect
I do not mean to jab, poke or ****
But if you continue to act like you're better than anyone else
You'll have to be brought down
Ickabobroe Jan 17
When Icarus fell from grace
The waves did not catch him
When you cast a glare upon my face
My hope began to grow dim

You crushed me
You destroyed my inner self
You killed me
You’re bad for my health

I thought I could love you
I was wrong
For once in my life
I thought I was in control
So just leave me with my empty soul

I grew up to trust you
You made me who I am
I thought I could be made new
But you were the slaughter and I was the lamb

But I’m coming back
I’m defeating who you tried to make me
I’m stronger than I was before
Back when you used to berate me

And now that life is different
And I’ve moved past
After everything you did
why do these feelings still stay
Ickabobroe May 23
What a funny word it is
As if said by a child
Bringing back all I’ve lost
And the lives I’ve left behind
Man I’m stressed and sad and lonely Jesus **** man I’m not about it
Ickabobroe Jul 21
They say by any other name it would smell as sweet
And yet you’re the sweetest I’ve seem to come by
Maybe one day

The rose that withered to dust in my hands

And I’m trying to sew it back together

Ickabobroe Apr 20
Consider me selfish
But I’m moving past it to heal my wounds

Consider me selfish
But I don’t need you in my life to be happy

Consider me selfish
But I’m living my own life and not trying to live the life of another

Consider me selfish
But I care about me more than you
B*tches ain’t sh*t but hoes and tricks
Ickabobroe Feb 27
We’ve all heard it
The ups and downs
Of life we’ve all felt them both

And life right now
Is like a boat
That’s starting to overflow

And yet with this
This simple truth
I would just like to say

This slant of life
Is going up
And tends to go your way

Do not throw out
These words I say
I mean them serve you well

Your life is short
So don’t hang on
To when you are not well

Alas it comes
My parting words
So please lend me your ear

Don’t give up hope
Don’t get so down
Your happy days are near
Ickabobroe Mar 13
I tried to be a secret agent
I smuggled the keys to your heart
Little did I know
You had changed the lock
Ickabobroe Mar 13
You came to me like a stranger in the night
Alone left with my thoughts and emotions
You arose from the dark
Pulling me into your snare

I had gone so long without you
But your embrace of death constricted
Reminding me of the time
Keeping me in your clutches

I had struck you down
I had pushed you away forever
We still haven’t yet met again
A shadow of a past eternity
Ickabobroe Apr 27
I probably spoke far too soon
Should've caught my tongue before it fluttered away
I know it left me for I'm at a loss for words
However I don’t think you’ll ever feel the same
Ickabobroe Feb 27
I’m searching for an answer

Looking for a solution within
Every touch
Every breath

Asking questions I know I'll never answer
Or you
Alone

I don't know why
I don't know what makes this
I'm lost

Cement pulling me down
Drowning me in the vastness of the void
No choice but to watch the world disappear
Fading
No Answer
Black

gone.
Ickabobroe May 22
I feel like there’s an unspoken rule
We both tend to follow
Upon the ground in which
We build tomorrow

The ever silent code
To maintain our bliss
Has really ****** me up
And I know what I miss

And now I lay here
Typing away
Thinking of you
Not knowing what to say

And then a thought
From out of the blue
I remember again
That I love you
**** y’all, life kinda ***** *** right now and idk what to do
Ickabobroe Dec 2018
Do I want you?
Do I need you?
Why do I think that you belong with me?
Where are you?
Who are you?
Not a huge fan of this one but just kinda felt it
Ickabobroe Apr 29
Like a shadow in the night you arrived
Promised to make my every dream
As if upon angel's wings
You were there to comfort me and light my heart agleam

Like a bugle call you rang in my head
My inner consciousness booming with delight
The searing flames got to me
And annihilated anything that might

Like a shooting star you flashed into my life
Bringing light and with you a sense of alleviation
But when the sun then rose upon the hills
You made me regret falling for apparitions
Ickabobroe Mar 1
Why?
The motive of a peoples
The reason we are

Why?
The driving force of history
The catalyst of the future

Why?
The question asked every day
To learn our being here

Why?
The ode to my sadness
The reason of my doubt

Why?
The key to all questions
But couldn’t unlock my heart

Why?
The question I wonder when I think about you
The question I ask as to the reason I do

Why?
My silent cry in the dark
The haunting echoes of a chamber

Why do I miss you?
Ickabobroe Sep 3
The chill of wind
Mixed with the heat of passion
Leaves a whirlwind of emotion
With nothing behind

The uprooting breeze
Which had grown to enormity
Was sweeping away
The hopes of my dreams

Yet whilst my gaze
Still lies on you in the depths of night
Allow me to dance with you
Along the mist of fantasy
Dude I don’t wanna **** this up
Ickabobroe Mar 3
We all search for the perfect words
The ones that will make our heartstrings sing
But once we find them, then what?

There’s no such thing as the perfect words
They come and go as they please without a care
Who are we to tell them their worth

Words are as they are to be
A reflection of who we are when we stare into the dark
Staring us right back, showing our true selves through the night
Ickabobroe Apr 29
Some things
remain in your head
on who is alive
and who is dead
so you wont be funny
you won't get fame
be a decent person
don't spoil endgame
y'all please i haven't seen it yet
Yes
Ickabobroe Mar 6
Yes
There is a word
One word
The greatest desire
To cross the lips

The most powerful word in existence
From someone loved long ago
Yet to show again
Yet to reflect

I despise it
As it out of my reach
And I feel I need it
In order to feel anything again

But I guess we wait
And see the future
To see if the treasure
Can be attained
Been sitting in my drafts forever so I have nothing else to do with it
You
Ickabobroe Jul 9
You
You see, it’s going to be ok

It looks dark but there’s light unending
Just around the corner

Even though it all seems black
And there doesn’t seem to be a reason to continue
You’ll find your way and happiness soon enough

The world is bright and full of good
You see, I can help as much as I want but I’ll never open your eyes for you
It’s simply a matter of acceptance
And love
And hope for a better future with you
Just trying to spread some positive vibes tonight, hope y’all’s summer is going well!!!
Ickabobroe Jun 5
I don’t know why I hold on to hope for you
It’s all lost anyway
I shouldn’t have invested so much time in you
But nothing’s going to change

I try and make you feel something again
I really though you did
I really ******* miss everything we had
I miss everything we did

I want you to see all my poems
I want you to see you in all my words
I want everything to go back to how it was
But we all know the past is done and gone with the birds

I genuinely had hope
And I miss you
But now it’s gone
Nothing anymore is true
Tonight was rough y’all but I’ll be ok, just going through some stuff and sorting it all out. I don’t know why I feel how I do about her but everyone knows
Ickabobroe Nov 2018
I can’t stop my thoughts
From penetrating into my brain
I can’t shake this feeling
That I’ll be lost without you forever

You say I’m ignorant
Or I’m overreacting
But I just can’t
Get out of my head

I’m trapped
With you
In my mind
And I need my way out

I saw you as an angel
But now Lucifer is with you
You fell from your Grace
And I got rid of you

But just like an infection
Pulling at the walls
You tore my foundations
And killed me with thoughts

I’m trapped
With you
In my mind
And I need my way out

I was holding on
Until I realized
Your toxic lies

I was reaching out
Grabbing for your heartstrings
But they had already gone

Gone in the breeze
Ickabobroe Apr 17
I guess you don't realize

Sometimes the truth is better not told
There's so much I want to say to you

— The End —
