Building up tension
Knocking it down.
Pins are quiet
We’re making sound.

Rollercoaster
Smile or frown.
Swaying and focused
Upside down.

Lip gloss stains
On the wall.
Aches and pain
Break your fall.

Laughter outside
Playing games.
Going inside
When it rains.

Do or die
Next to you.
I’d rather be
Till we’re through.

Lip gloss stains
On the wall.
Aches and pains
Break your fall.

Lip gloss stains
On my shirt.
Bruises bloom
Barely hurt.

You’re fine
You’re prime
You’re mine
Paradigm.

You’re fine
You’re prime
I’m yours
For shores.

Long hair
Short hair
Don’t care
Don’t spare

Long hair
Short hair
Repair
Compare.

Lip gloss stains
Post-night pains.

I wrote this while imaging hooking up with the type of woman who excites me (masculine, as my sexuality is androphilic and means I only experience sexual attraction to those who dress and/or behave in a masculine way) :)
I hope you enjoy reading this, sorry that there isn't a short version :(

Seema

I have dealt with this before,
This feeling...
I am dealing with it again,
This feeling...

The outer look matters
Rather the taste of inner
The shape and color of a bottle
Looks fancy and appealing
Rather its contents, so bitter

Beauty on face, complexion
So beautiful
Inside a dark, deep infested nest
Ugly and untruthful

Painted figures, expensive makeup
Lucious lips
Pleasing to ones eyes
Caring heart, kind soul, unpleasant appearance
Yet, doubtful cries

Whatever is beautiful, matters!
Regardless to the consequences
Most see the outer appearance and judge
Hardly see the innocent smile,
                            ...of the less fortunate

Judging people by their outer appearance is a disgust. Love yourself and appreciate others how they are.

I’m fragile and snide
She hasn’t died
I refuse to believe
She’s star side.

I’m her best memory
Warmth magnified
I stand in the rain
Hands by my side.

I’m a dry and empty well
I’m cracked inside
I suffer alone
She isn’t alive.

I’m the last raindrop in the sky
I’m the last tear in her eye.
I’m torn and tried
I’m the last to sigh.

I’m a fallen leaf
She carried me.
She was the wind
Sustaining.

I’m a dim light
Warmth petrified.
I stand by her grave
Hands by my side.

I’m the last raindrop in the sky
I’m the last tear in her eye.
I’m shaken inside
I’m the last to sigh.

For the full explanation of the inspiration, please refer to the long version :)
I hope you appreciate this piece and its message of grief, in particular the first stage which is denial.
I'm trying to post regularly as I'd like my works to be better known ^

This was inspired by comments on youtube I read about loss (and my own experience). I wanted to use simple phrases that delivered a powerful message of at least one stage of grief (denial), and I'm sure that's come across well.
Hope you appreciate this, and if this is too much to read, I've posted a short version for you :)

I know who you are
I know who I’d like to be.
You’re the reason I live
Will you spend life with me?

I make you smile
Every single day
But I’d love to be the reason
Your spirit never strays.

The rain was falling on my head
Now it’s disappeared
The leaves are crushed under my boots
The breeze is still.

It’s time to gather around the tallest tree
And put aside our daydreams.
We’ll always be friends
But like the season, I fall for you.

We hold gloved hands
But I still feel your skin.
I memorised your laugh
Before it grew dim.

The rain was falling on my head
Now it’s disappeared
The leaves are crushed under my boots
The breeze is still.

It’s time to gather around the tallest tree
And put aside our daydreams.
We’ll always be friends
But like the season, I fall for you.

(instrumental)

Like remembering sunsets
Your words don’t fade.
They’re colours that burst
From a single shade.

Unmistakeable
Like a butterfly kiss.
You gravitate me
In moments like this.

It’s time to gather around the tallest tree
And put aside our daydreams.
We’ll always be friends
But like the season, I fall for you.

The rain was falling on my head
Now it’s disappeared.

This is a final version of a song I wrote last month. A short poem version is available if you wish to read that instead.
Hope you enjoy :)

This was originally a song, but I edited it to fit into a poem format. You can read the original song version also if you wish.
Hope you enjoy :)

Every day I close my eyes
I feel like screaming; instead I sigh.
Sometimes I wonder why
I'm still breathing and seeing the sky.

I can be happy if I choose to be
But I can't be happy by myself
And I know it's difficult for me
To get along with someone else.

I try, but so many
Ramble on stupidly
I'd like to slap them silly
But know that accomplishes nothing.

So I have to breathe
I have to care for me
No-one else knows how to
It's the best thing I do.

I can be happy if I choose to be
I could be happy by myself
But I know that some love me
And don't want anyone else.

I'm writing this because I wanted something that expresses a little bit of my everyday frustration without focussing too much on the intensity of my frustration. I also wanted to end this with an important message for all as I've read these sort of messages that remind others to hang on. Thank you for reading!
