Joseph Macias Oct 2016
I have to think
No wait
I'm tired of thinking
What am I going to do
Someone save me
Is there an end
When will a new story begin
Catastrophe coming to an end
Never again
I must learn
Not all love burns
Sep 2016 · 292
Joseph Macias Sep 2016
Let me begin with this
I am with you
I'll try to make you see
It's nothing like you've had
Faith is all you'll need
You'll overcome many things
I'll show you the way
Just don't forget to breathe
Its the hardest thing to do
I am with you
I'll help guide you
Now hold on tight
Keep your eyes on me
I'll keep you safe
I'll make you strong
My love will flow upon you
I am with you
Sep 2016 · 227
Joseph Macias Sep 2016
I want to be clear
I gotta be honest
Let me just say
I can't live without it
You think of me to be foolish
It's all I got left in me
I hope one day you'll understand
He lives inside of me
Even if you don't feel me
I will still believe
What He's done for me
I wanna share this with you
Even though it might cost what I got with you
You seem to need this more then me
Trust me
I'm not judging you
You're my brother
You're my sister
Never a stranger
I can help rescue you

Over It
Joseph Macias Sep 2016
At this again
I thought I was through
Why must you be selfish
We can all win
Give it a chance
You'll find something from within
You and I go around
I'm tired of this merry-go-round
I'll leave you on the ground
No more dead weight
That day will come
Just you wait
See me rise
Rise to the top
All the way up
Ain't no stopping me
You'll be a past memory
Sep 2016 · 209
Joseph Macias Sep 2016
It's not that I'm broken
I'm not
It's not that I don't care
I do
I'm learning to care about what's important
I don't want to be nice to everyone
I just want to be what needs to be
I desire more from myself
I just need more
Settling isn't in me
I try and I fail every time
I desire more from myself
I desire more from others
That might be selfish
I truly see the best in others
I love being a mentor
I give more because I want more
I'm ******* myself
I see what I can be
I truly believe in myself
I love myself
Hardest lesson I had to learn
Learned that a long time ago
I desire more
I need and want more
With or without you
I will be more

Here we go again, this feels like a mystery, I'm inside of you, but I just can't read you, feeling like a crazy game, but this isn't Sorry, I know you see me try a lot, I know you do a lot, but for some reason we can't get together in the same slot, I'm hungrier then I've ever been, thirsty poets write as though they got nothing from with in, rhyming like tomato, tomahto, in need of a rhyming dictionary, save me from the misery, I'm the realist **** ever, I dare you to compete with me, trust me, I saw your arrival, but its time to go, you're about to go suicidal, let's end this with a goodbye and never say hello

Joseph Macias Apr 2015
The air has escaped my lungs
Let me just begin to breathe
I want to say so much
My tongue has no movement
My mouth does not open
These lips stay together and yet
My mind begins to wonder
It wonders into a million thoughts
There's no clarity, no reasoning
I believe this to be true
The way to say these things
Love, truth and compassion
They continually escape from me
I'm consumed with frustration
I bite my lips for any relief
There is none, no forgiveness
I won't give up
These thoughts, these true thoughts
I need to find them
I need to breathe again, I need too
I will find my inner peace
My thoughts will recognize the good
My life will have value
These words will know love
Apr 2015 · 234
Joseph Macias Apr 2015
It's been a long time come in
How do I begin this again
I feel I've said these words again
Strange feelings never seem to change
Let me just change this whole thing
I'm going to start it my way
Never will I let it go their way
I'm fighting this battle my own way
I'm tired of weak thoughts invading my space
No more
I'm going to think twice
Not making the same mistakes
Focusing on the choices I make
Looking forward to the promise of tomorrow
There's no letting go this time
Wisdom will guide me
Hope will carry me
Waiting for the title
Apr 2015 · 217
Beautifully Broken
Joseph Macias Apr 2015
I feel in pieces today
Wanting more than what is
Struggling to put it all together
Holding on to you and the pieces
Why must I feel this way
Praying on my knees
Tears roll down my face
I know I'm made to love
Made to love you everyday
Was I meant to feel this way
Was I meant to feel broken
Trusting you relieves the struggle
Your unfailing love everyday
Will help ignite the way
I'd do anything and everything for it
I'd give this life away
Just to be beautifully broken
For you everyday
Jan 2015 · 223
Let's Begin
Joseph Macias Jan 2015
I don't know what to say
Where do I start
Should I even begin
I had this journey
It needed to be done
It wasn't my choice
I'm back now
I'm ready I think
There shouldn't be distance
Will endure this together
I won't leave you
I'm with you forever

Passionate Desire
Joseph Macias Feb 2014
They're certain people you crave,
Feeling lost in their ways,
Trapped by emotion and delight,
Screaming for more, more,
You can't get enough,
It burns,
The sensation is overwhelming,
Endorphins explode with delight,
You quiver from the sensation,
Tears of complete satisfaction
Feb 2014 · 279
Writers Block
Joseph Macias Feb 2014
In the night I crave,
I have no motivation,
I know what to feel,
I know to breathe,
I know to love,
Why does it feel so,
My mind aches,
It trembles with confusion,
Like a child I am lost,
Someone save me
Feb 2014 · 227
Past Love
Joseph Macias Feb 2014
Let me try something more than just breathing, you tried to see me but you didn't understand me, I forgave you for nothing, you remembered me for everything, let me go of this journey, it'll be better without me, nobody could see it coming, but we fell apart, words meant nothing, love came and went, the way you treated me will be a memory, time will pass, thoughts of you will come and go, its okay to feel sorrow, we learn and grow for tomorrow, this life is a journey, a journey you'll have without me
Jan 2014 · 286
My Truth
Joseph Macias Jan 2014
I new a lot of you
Turns out I just knew me
It's strange how it all goes
I was on top, nobody could see
Now I'm just trying to get up
This life is hard, but I won't give up
Problems come just with different faces
I carry nothing, but big faces
Some say I'll never be enough
But I'm strong enough
I'll be here today, tomorrow and forever
If not only in your memory
Prayers and me are all I need
I want you to be more than what I need
Sometimes this life won't let me breathe
I strive to succeed
I am a man who needs
Wanting everything for free
knowing life is hard work
A man can dream

Keep It Up
Joseph Macias Jan 2014
Started from the bottom
no where at the top
somewhere in the middle
This has gotta stop
This can't be
You believe in me
I watch what you do
Inspiring me like no other
I wish I was like you
But all I can be is me
Every day is a struggle
I am so hungry
You'll never see me thirsty
When its all said and done
You'll be right there with me

Nothing Else Matters
Joseph Macias Jan 2014
When life is short, you just need to climb further
Love isn't difficult, let me paint a picture for ya
I don't mess with the negatives
Lessones learned a long time ago, but I've never picked up a book
Your words have me shook, let me get a look
Words so deep, she wondered what I be
Let me put this record on, **** it
I wanna hear you say you love me
Because in the end, it ended so cold
I thought you was cold, it just got old
I can't start from the beginning, you don't even know
I think of the future, leaving past behind me
Being successful is hard, its all I ever wanted
Even when you struggling, haters wanna see you fall
Catch a glimpse of me, living in luxury
My dreams will come true, it doesn't have to be with you
Oct 2013 · 310
its over
Joseph Macias Oct 2013
You had me at hello, but you forgot me when you said goodbye, don't ask me why I try, I just believe in lies, you could have said I miss you, I love you, you know what, forget you, with broken beer bottles and dreams, this feels too much like a tragedy... I loved you a long time ago, tried to pick up the pieces, but they all just fell apart, next time I see you, I'm letting you know, I'm letting you go
Oct 2013 · 282
Joseph Macias Oct 2013
I know no truth, all I know is lies, some say I'm a thief in disguise, look into these eyes, read between the lines, I'm just lost in this crazy world of mine, you'll never see me cry, tears never leave these eyes, some learn wisdom, seldom learn strength, a few know life, but all know me, why must you search for me, once you have me, its hard to leave me, be wise, I'll never let you go
Sep 2013 · 449
Different Within
Joseph Macias Sep 2013
Here we go again, this feels like a mystery, I'm inside of you, but I just can't read you, feeling like a crazy game, but this isn't Sorry, I know you see me try a lot, I know you do a lot, but for some reason we can't get together in the same slot, I'm hungrier then I've ever been, thirsty poets write as though they got nothing from with in, rhyming like tomato, tomahto, in need of a rhyming dictionary, save me from this misery, I'm the realist **** ever, I dare you to compete with me, trust me, I saw your arrival, but its time to go, you're about to go suicidal, let's end this with a goodbye and never say hello
Aug 2013 · 246
Joseph Macias Aug 2013
Steal me away, but only for tonight
You are more to me then forever
Wondering and hoping in you
Letting go of the old in you
Your lost in your ways
Believing in you always
Tomorrow should never come
Today will end with tonight
Aug 2013 · 286
Joseph Macias Aug 2013
As life starts to flow, try not to let it go, it might look like the end, but its just the beginning, doors may close, opportunity may walk by, remember... look away from suppose to be, keep your head up, its only life and its here to make us stronger

This Life
Joseph Macias Jul 2013
I was once forgotten, now they remember me,  they can't stop talking about me, I just want to escape reality, this is my fantasy, come join me, I don't smoke, I'm high all time, life got me feeling good, I promise I won't give up, just shut up, all I hear is noise when you talk, let's be honest, you like when I talk, drank enough for the both us, it should of been the two of us, just understand, my friends come and go, I'm trying to let you know, you gotta take things slow, don't let go, you gotta get it right, we be up all night
Jul 2013 · 216
Another Time
Joseph Macias Jul 2013
Here we are, you and me, just the two of us, its like we were meant to be, some days I can't believe, I can't wait to taste you, my heart is filled with you, you are beautiful in such away, I can't help, but think about you every day, breathing you in, a part of you, a part of me, this heart was meant for you
Jun 2013 · 301
Wanting You
Joseph Macias Jun 2013
I want more of you, more then I had yesterday, loving you in such away, it brings me to my knees, tomorrow can only bring more memories, the way you look at me, I feel you inside of me, my heart feels heavy, help me believe, never letting go, I just don't know, breathing in slowly because you take it all away, come with me today, don't push me away, I'm tired of praying, I want you in every way
Jun 2013 · 2.6k
Joseph Macias Jun 2013
Why must I feel empty, having a mind full of thoughts, a heart full of weary, lost in the world, found in Gods glory, never feeling complete, always wanting more, tired of fighting, even when I am dying, I'll still be fighting, my knees are bruised, my heart is lost, and my eyes are sown shut, I will continue to press on, my passion will move me, my drive will carry me and HIS love will strengthen me
May 2013 · 364
More Then
Joseph Macias May 2013
Dirt on my face, fire in my heart, no tears in these eyes, what haven't you realized, I'm a winner from the start, close your eyes, you can't finish me, there's too much in me, mountains I'll climb, troubles I'll go through, see my struggle, I won't lay me down, rising to the challenge, I'm more then you think, more then you believe, passion in my heart, wisdom on my side, there's God inside
May 2013 · 285
Come and Gone
Joseph Macias May 2013
Let's be happy, let's be safe, these words you can't erase, these words you can't escape, have you forgotten me, I don't remember you...I remember you, words of tomorrow, me loving you, an old hope I once knew, holding on to memories, I want more then a goodbye story, escape from all worry, I am not sorry, I did it with my heart, its where it all came apart
Apr 2013 · 271
A Girl
Joseph Macias Apr 2013
Tell me, what does it mean to love you, Dreams of you can only get me so far, Love of my life...Girl of my dreams... Or are you just a fantasy, Waiting for that moment when you're in my arms, Not wanting you to escape, but we all must part, It's seems so hard to start, Wanting you more then the air I breathe, That first kiss will be bliss, You are more to me then in between, Be more then a daily routine
Apr 2013 · 298
My Way
Joseph Macias Apr 2013
I will live this life, I won't give up, I won't quit, I will get back up, I will live for today, I won't believe in tomorrow, I will love and love again, there will only be right now, my promises will not break, only truth will escape me and only love will enter me
Apr 2013 · 757
It's Over
Joseph Macias Apr 2013
Let me start this again, finish this again, this is where I want to be, poor me, that'll never be, I will survive what say you, your words are childish, you're like hate, you're useless, I've done things you've never said, you can say you hate me, you don't even know me, its true what they say, haters gonna hate, its best not to retaliate, I have fallen like so many others, I'll never be done forever, my words maybe clever, what makes me is better, better now then never, I'll be here forever

Joseph Macias Mar 2013
I'm not trying to fit in, I'm not trying to get in, trying to discover the person thats within, I will win and there will be sin, being scared is your conclusion, there will be no fusion, hate and love, its not all the same, tired of these games, come to my conclusion, it won't be an illusion, inside of me is a warrior, he isn't full of hate, he doesn't discriminate, fighting to the end, possibly broken by hate, try to understand, I am stronger from within, giving up and letting go, only if I win, you're tired of me, I'm tired of you, don't be scared of what I think of you, I should of said this from the start...You. Will. Not. Win.
Mar 2013 · 329
love me more
Joseph Macias Mar 2013
Carry me away, I want to get away, say you'll forget about the times, the ups and downs of my heart, can you help me restart, my heart has  lost its way, this isn't easy, I don't know what to say, my words have become weary, my dreams have lost their way, we'll see each other again one day, promise me that you'll pray, changing me one day, pick a day, it might be that day, trust in my words, never again will I be that way, be with me in such away, giving you what's left of me,  brokenness has found its way, madness might find its way, realize life with me this way, carry me away

believe in change
Joseph Macias Mar 2013
I believe...I believe in the simplicity of things, you just live, even if it hurts, you just live, when the lights turn off, I'll be the light that lights the way, hurt and pain, only if I'm fighting for what's right, giving up, laying down, that's not me, you may get a frown, I could never fight alone, hold on to what lifts you, Change...change the way you think, change the way you love, life is bittersweet, even when its bitter, make it sweet, dream for a better you, even if it brings sorrow, today will show strength for tomorrow, be the best today, holding on to a wish is childish, believe in more then just breathing, holding on to past sorrow, that'll bring hurt for tomorrow, look up, you just look up, life goes on and so must the strong

Hold On
Joseph Macias Jan 2013
This isn't make belief
This is real life
Questioning me and wondering
Don't let this be
Trust these words with opens eyes
Actions will surely follow
Forget what what you want
I'm everything you need
Tonight won't end with goodnight
Grown ups, doing grown things
In between the sheets is where will be
Doing what you want, doing what you need
Don't be too loud
Neighbors might start to yell
Guess you just gotta live
Tomorrow doesn't have to begin
Take in the moment
Want it to last forever
Looking into your eyes
It just feels like forever
Jan 2013 · 510
Me and You
Joseph Macias Jan 2013
Lips touch for the first time
Feeling like the world is mine
Who knew it could get this good
Wondering if you ever a knew love like mine
Let's leave the lust and start with the trust
Letting go starts a new
Together we can make most days feel like better days
Call me with sweet words and a soft touch from you
Love is the best when it comes from you
Thoughts and memories of your touch
Let's be renewed
Embrace life with this heart for you
Jan 2013 · 230
So Much
Joseph Macias Jan 2013
I love because I want
I need because I feel
I breathe because I am
I let go in the night
I dream during the day
I want more then I feel
I feel more then I see
I open my eyes to you
I believe in you
I choose to be with you
I am more with you
I love you with an innocence
I am completed with you
Dec 2012 · 383
Forever You
Joseph Macias Dec 2012
Better then yesterday, bigger then tomorrow, you are with me, adore me a little longer, hold me a little closer, dream with me always, love me tenderly, understand me completely, take me away from tomorrow, bring me into forever, it just feels right, here beside you,  let my light guide you, you inside me and me inside of you, I will always love you
Dec 2012 · 322
Joseph Macias Dec 2012
Follow me into the day
Know that it will never be
Fears like a child
Dreams have escaped you
Stop rambling like that
On how you never had it
That you never got it
Say what you are
More then just shades
I don't need the violence
Forget about giving me praise
Just take my picture
Try not to be too untrue
We all know it's for you
Have no regrets
Learn to just except it
Try not to say it
You really should of said it
Dec 2012 · 825
Joseph Macias Dec 2012
I want to promise you
You probably won't believe
This life is about you
Forget the worries and the holidays
Those have nothing to do with you
I want you to be
Be more then the world
Follow your faith
Open your eyes
See the lies through your eyes
I promise you
This life isn't what it seems
Never follow blindly
Never give in to popular belief
Overcome the illusions of this world
Promise me
You'll never forget to breathe
Dec 2012 · 375
Joseph Macias Dec 2012
I want to be free
Escape from me
Forget me always
I am not of you
You have nothing for me
Tears in my eyes
Hope won't escape me
Faith will protect me
Stand alone
Never beside me
There will be no conform
Dec 2012 · 274
Not You
Joseph Macias Dec 2012
You loving me
I'm not loving you
Acting like I'm your world
When I'm worlds apart from you
You don't see me for what I am
I see right through you
You wanted me in every way
I'd rather not be with you
I want you to know
I once loved you
Love has come and gone
I'll never forget you
Dec 2012 · 282
Joseph Macias Dec 2012
Broken and battered
You’re feeling more then shattered
You stay strong
Strength will not escape you
I lean on you
Guide me into the escape
Never leave me
Strengthen me
Changed for you I will be
I will help carry you
You are with me
I am with you
Dec 2012 · 266

Love…The reason for it all…The reason we search…The reason we continue living…Why we strive through the heartache…It forces us to lose sleep…It ruins us and makes us better…We are stronger and weaker for it…It forces us to focus on one…It starts off as an emotion …It ends with principle …The reason for it all…Love

Joseph Macias Dec 2012
This is life, the hustle, the failures, the comes up, reading this is breathing this, my tears may fall, my swag will grow, played out, that will never be, care about me, better then me, that you'll never see, this is life, better not forget to breathe, listen to life, speak the truth, lies beneath you, no foundation, no rotation, you're stuck in your situation, you could hate me now, don't forget, fate has me now.

Letting GO
Joseph Macias Nov 2012
Trying hard to fight
Embracing every emotion
Never felt so vulnerable
Wondering when it will begin
Coming to the end
I can’t do it alone
Needing Him
Label me dead
Dead without Him
A tear drops
A heart opens up
Nov 2012 · 309
Dear You
Joseph Macias Nov 2012
Let me show you
Let me show you life
The truth in this world
What it is to fall while being held
A man full of love
A faith hardly seen
I know it can be challenging
Finding your clarity
The path is never easy
A different person you would be
Cold and alone
You will never be
Nov 2012 · 285
Joseph Macias Nov 2012
As good as one could be, you've been there for me, doing more then one should, always telling me I could, being full of love is what you've shown me, holding my hand and watching me grow, you've always been more to me, thank you for always picking me up, holding me and lifting me up, wiping away the tears and telling me to have no fears.

It's just me, imperfect as you can see, never hating, just being true to me, feel free to see, I dare you to believe, everything as it seems, fantasies are for the young, dreams are for the wise, being just me, being just you, makes you special to me.

Be the rain falls, steady in the storm, fearless in the dark, mindful with love, soft with every touch, wise with your actions, thoughtful with your words, forgetful of your worries and doubts, slow to your anger, weak in your judgement, strong with your passion and passionate with your life.
