Diamonds Behold
A heart of gold
Silver is sold
Bronze is told
What diamonds behold
another ("populas")poem where each lines describes a person and then the last one kinda sums it up

A Puzzle I Am
A puzzle I am
You wont figure me out
A puzzle I am
You will not find all my pieces
A puzzle I am
You wont put me back together
A puzzle I am
You see the broken, tattered pieces
A puzzle I am
You did never solve

Dont treat me like glass
Because you think Im fragile
Treat me like glass
Because I am beautiful but breakable

Tell Me
ShadowSpy Oct 8
The way your eyes light up
When you recall
The days of the past
Leave a growing ache in my soul
For those days are not only the time you long for
But also the time
I was not in your life
How can you tell me
You miss those days
But also tell me
You miss me
can it be both?

ShadowSpy Sep 30
Every step I make
I fly a little
Each breath I take
The wind blows away
My mind filled with ache
Catches up to my thoughts
For my own sake
Leave me alone for a while

The words you send
Make my mouth bend
Then I tend
To think of the heart you lend
to me, your friend
whos heart you mend
please let this never end
for my closest friend

All Your Thoughts
ShadowSpy Sep 27
They say
If you run fast enough
All your thoughts
Will finally be left behind
I used to believe that could be true
But I say
If you run fast enough
Youll finally catch up
With all your thoughts

I will be found
ShadowSpy Sep 27
I cant be me
When you are around
I am buried deep
Way under the ground
I want to come out
So scared to make a sound
But someday Im sure
My heart will pound
Let me loose from its grip
To the pain I was bound
I will be known
I will be found

For You
ShadowSpy Sep 27
My heart is breaking
For you
But you arent real
How can I feel your pain
But never shed a tear for them
I want to connect
But only you make it possible
And maybe that is because you have no say

I Fear
ShadowSpy Sep 27
I fear standing alone at the edge of the cliff
I fear shaking in the night without a light
I fear living a day without the hope you are somewhere
I fear I will never know you

I am almost at the edge of the cliff
Yet I still stand alone
The darkness is closing in
No light is leading me away
I think of you everyday
But I dont know you are

a broken heart

The beauty of
a broken heart
That doesnt need

ShadowSpy Sep 19
To take a chance
And risk everything willingly

To trust someone
And let them break your walls

To venture into reality
And find where you belong

To believe everything will be ok
And know it

Is to
something we must all do
ShadowSpy Sep 16
Black streak
Between slabs of gray
Yellow dashes
Running their way
Head down
Dont hear what they say
Ask for food
When you know you cant pay
Wander outside
The empty cafe
Eyes close
Its been a long day

Of Sorrow
ShadowSpy Sep 15
infront of me lies
an empty canvas

with all i have

no words can i write
no strokes can i leave
no color can i show

in me

L O V E ?

Why Does One Matter?
ShadowSpy Sep 15
When asked, "Why do you matter?"
My mind drew a blank...

Why does one matter?
The unique aura they carry?
Thee insightful way they see the world?
The gift they hold within?
That which they will do someday?
Why do you matter?

Scribbles Before Bed
ShadowSpy Sep 9
Never being known
Is a feeling Im used to
So when love is shown
I try not to overdo

But she spreads it around
Like a whisper in the wind
That we have all found

Scribbles before bed
Is all she said
But there must be something more
Though what Im not sure
i hope you know who are, and that youre amazingly talented and have a heart of something more than gold

Heaven Once Spoke
ShadowSpy Sep 6
Heaven once spoke
With laughter I feared
Powerful vocals
That threatened me
But time in hell
Let me see
Heaven once spoke
With laughter filled with fear
We have united
But drifted apart so slow
In my mind
I will never let you go
the story of one of my friendships <3

My Hearts Already Dead
ShadowSpy Sep 6
Some days
I lie in bed
Over come by
A sense of dread
Lips trembling
But nothings to be said
Mind tries to get up
But my feet are bricks of lead
Breaking point is near
My hearts already dead

Lure Me In
ShadowSpy Sep 5
Lure me in
With a melody of trust
But bury me deep
Under the dust
Hold out your heart
But tear mine apart
Leave me alone
After the love you have shown

Time to Leave
ShadowSpy Sep 5
You'll know its time to leave
If all the truths you are told
Are just twisted lies
Spoken by a masked figure
You once knew
this can apply to any relationship

Heart Of Gold
ShadowSpy Sep 4
She had a heart of gold
So beautiful and bold
Eyes that drew you in
Not looking felt like a sin
Steps as light as dust
Looking was a must
Smile that broke your guard
Not staring was just too hard
how he saw her

ShadowSpy Aug 31
Just there.
Not sitting.
Not standing.
Not laying down.
So then what?
Brushed away.
That’s not what does the harm.
Without a thought.
That is the root of the pain.
Once brushed away, gone forever.
No one will remember.
No one will care.

Hope lingers in the dust
Death lurks behind the darkness
Faith rests ahead
Tragedy follows from afar
Loyalty clears your path
Pain pulls you back

Reality Does Not Hide
ShadowSpy Aug 24
Reality is not Hiding

It is being hidden
By liars

It is being covered
By demons

It is being shielded from us
By cowards

It does not hide
It fights everyday to be seen me

Hiding Reality

Look past

And you will find
What only I know exists

Some are Meant To...
ShadowSpy Aug 17
As we take our first breath
We are handed a tool
Given to us by the creator of the universe

It never leaves our hand
Although we cannot see it
Or feel it
We can sense it

Some are meant to change people
Into better or worse humans

Some are meant to carve the world
Into the place we love or hate

Some are meant to give us hope
Which without we would fall

Some are meant to teach us
What we would never know, other-wise

Some are meant to strengthen us
To become who we really are

Some are meant to save us
Before we disappear

And some are meant to destroy
The better humans we are
The world we love
The hope we stand upon
The knowledge we know
And the strength we lean on

Which tool is in your grasp?

We Always Think
ShadowSpy Aug 17
We always think
Those who are alone
Deserve to be lonely
Yet everyday we witness
Sins above all
Everyday we witness
The world we have built
From the outcast
Trying to fit in
To the stray
Keeping their distance
We always think
They are the ones falling behind
But think again
Are they?

The Day
ShadowSpy Aug 15
the day
we celebrate
how much a person has grown

the day
we come together with
those we have known

the day
we sing
till the candle is blown

the day
we know
we wont be alone
is our special day!

My Lifes A Show
ShadowSpy Aug 8
My lifes a show
Filled with sorrow and danger
Its not a promising film
You'll hear them say
As the scenes
Play across the screen
I glance at the audience
The theatre is empty
Except for me
I reach down and stuff
A handful of popcorn
Into my mouth
Hoping that'll stop the sobs
Even though
Theres no one watching
ill tell you, my lifes probably not the movie youll buy a ticket for

Its Not Ok
ShadowSpy Aug 8
Its not ok
For me to be here

Thats the one truth I know
But after all Ive done
Ive also learned
You were never
On my side

Last Wish For You
ShadowSpy Aug 7
Is all it
Would take
To crush you
Into millions of
Pieces and tear your
Soul into hundreds of shreds
Then throw them in a blazing hot
Fire and watch them burn to ashes in
The cold night where the last of your cruelty
Would keep away the chills and bring me comfort
Fulfilling my last wish for you; to send warmth into the world
Aug 7 · 105
How Could You
ShadowSpy Aug 7
How could you pick me up
And put me together
Using your own hands
Without a single doubt

Only to push me back down
And break me apart
Using your own feet
Without a second glance

I shouldve known
After all,
Nothing good lasts forever

Who Am I
ShadowSpy Aug 7
Who am I to tell you its ok to cry
When I cannot do so myself
Who am I to make you feel strong
When I am so weak
Who am I to let you down gently
When I have been crushed

Who am I to hold out my heart
When not a single of you will take it

ShadowSpy Aug 5
The love you never had
The pain you always carried
The trust you never showed
The guilt you were consumed by
The joy you were seeking
The anger you held inside

The rest of them could never see
But I did
Because I was once like you
ShadowSpy Aug 5
Fluttering Insides
Dizzy Head
Take a step
Do not fall
Right there it is
That which you seek
But my mind
Is playing with me
Feet of lead
Loss of words
I cannot do this
Collapse without words
nerves or love?

Chorus of Chaos
ShadowSpy Aug 4
Lurking in the dark
I do not see
He comes around
And buries me
My throat closes in
The world goes black
But I cannot tell
Because Im in the back
When my mind comes to
A masked face stares
I pull away
Hes from my nightmares
My body is bound
My head is throbbing
I can only do one thing
And that is not sobbing
I open my mouth
And out comes
A chorus of chaos

ShadowSpy Aug 4
I want to heal you
But I cannot feel your pain
Please open the door
Ive seen your eyes rain
You feel so hopeless
Yet a smile you feign
Crying cant help you
Let me be your drain
Call out for help
Before you walk down the wrong lane
I refuse to watch you
End your pain

Imagine feeling all alone
Not knowing youre loved

Imagine trying to fight the pain by yourself
Not knowing other can help

Imagine feel hopeless and despair
Not knowing that joy is not to far ahead

Imagine attempting to take your life
Not knowing it will not only **** you

Some of us can relate and
Understand the true feelings
I cannot, but I can look for
Clues that lead to the end
I know you are stronger than whatever is paining you
Do you?
Ending your life is not the way to go
