Liberty Song
Freedom isn't free
it has a cost
so pay it in blood and soak on it, child
no matter what
let your tears
salt and dirt in your face
let them soak and rust your chains
for yes, the chains are peaceful
but tomorrow they will choke you
And pay that price gladly, never taking it for granted, for tomorrow it may not be yours anymore

There's a Light
Pedro Vialle Nov 4
It's been a lot
for a long while
such hurt, such malice
but have hope, lil' child
for alas, evil may be strong
but stronger is the will to be human
Strange times are these, when old ghosts of hate and evil seem to be back and at it again... But hope we need, hope to fight, to endure, for our light and our love, they shall prevail against the darkness!
Pedro Vialle Oct 29
Life is water
it flows
Life is fire
it hurts
Life is an artist
all the drama and shows
Life is music
magical and full of grace
Life is a lie
there's no saving, no chance
Life is fleeting
like a flock of doves
Life is nothing
but everything at once
Life is bright
a candle in a dark room
Life is all
but you
A simple missive, to all those who think the world goes around them. Sorry, my friend... It does not. If it did, it would be a very idiotic thing for the world to be. Hope you trip on a small rock,
                                                                                                       Pedro

Hiraeth
Pedro Vialle Oct 20
I feel I have a hole
where something was meant to be
but it never was there
so it's just empty
now and then it makes me cry
but it's alright, alright
always alright, never a let down
a weakness it is
and God forbids
I'll let anyone see that
for this ****** life made me a rock
so here I'll stay, forever
my tears slowly turning me to sand

A letter to burn later
Pedro Vialle Oct 8
Ever so gently
lay your head on my shoulder
dreaming of a better place
while I'll be awake
fighting your nightmares away
and when you wake up
I'll still be here
and I swear to be, for ever,
                                                           ­                                              your love

Run
Pedro Vialle Sep 23
Run
Run
for your life
not knowing what way
danger comes from
red and blue lights
shots fired
stray bullets
easy targets
never the bad guy
but always the black no one
tell me, when?
when this will stop?
when all this spilled blood
will finally be enough?
**** all those uniformed *******, those hateful pigs! They're killing CHILDREN over here...

Fallen
Pedro Vialle Sep 20
I fell
right from the sky
going down really fast
piercing through the clouds
then the ground got close
everything went boom
and when the smoke cleared up
there was only You
Pedro Vialle Sep 10
Hearing you breathing
softly on my chest
my skin burning
as I touch your hair
feeling your heart beating
so close to my own
makes me dream
all night long
and feel like in the sky
on my new found paradise

Clockwork
Pedro Vialle Sep 3
Tick and Tock
goes the clock
and I'm here
standing still
with my heart
much like a watch
beating soundly
at its will
but nowadays
I'm feeling weird
like I'm missing parts
of my mechanism
so my gears go round
but with clinks and clacks
instead of gently sounding
the bells on time
Lord, I feel broken
maybe beyond repair
doomed to be forgotten
in a corner somewhere
ticking and tocking
in all the wrong ways
until I turn silent forever
Not even twice a day I've been alright lately..

Embrace
Pedro Vialle Aug 30
Star-struck by your eyes
the magic in them shining on me
with such an angelic light...
Oh Lord, there's no other place I want to be

Drought
Pedro Vialle Aug 21
All around my world crumbles
no peace or love in me
and yet, after so many years
I can't shed a single tear
I guess I'm just used to it. It's kinda scary, to be honest...

It was quite windy today
and while looking outside
I suddenly realized
that my mind is like a yard
filled with dry leaves
all floating around
and me? I'm just running about
trying to catch 'em all
but when I'm almost over
sweating and making clouds with my breath
all the leaves fly away
leaving me standing there
tired of a work
that will lead me nowhere

Void
Pedro Vialle Aug 10
I feel a hole
gaping in my chest
dripping dark red blood
******* all that was left
of me, in the past
my smiles and sunny days
leaving nothing behind
but frozen shades of gray
And in my sleep I feel like falling
never stopping 'till I reach my doom...

Inspiration
Pedro Vialle Aug 7
I wish I was always inspired
by Light and all its daughters
by rainbows, sunny days
and afternoons filled with laughter
but Darkness
her rainy days and chilly nights
touches my heart in so many ways
I can hardly fight
So, I give in
letting it all flow trough me
turning my sorrow and tears
in this what you read

Frostbite
Pedro Vialle Aug 5
To feel cold
when hugged by a friend
to feel alone
among so many others
maybe this is
the winter of my soul

Crippled
Pedro Vialle Aug 3
A chained angel
with shredded wings
a room full of people
screaming at him
lusting for his blood
calling out his demise
taunting him with words:
"Oh, little bird, why don't you fly?"
And one day I shall fly, my wings finally open, ever reaching for the sunrise...

Nightmare
Pedro Vialle Jul 29
no one was calling for me
as I drowned alone
having no air in my lungs
my eyes seeing none
hands grasping my arms and feet
pulling me down into unknow
bubbles escape faintly
dark overcomes
Awful nightmare, felt so real...

when I already have so much on my chest
No rhymes today, just some tears

Insomnia
Pedro Vialle Jul 14
Memories of old
creeping inside
bringing back old ghosts
under the moonlit sky
I didn't sleep at all these past few nights... Oh anxiety, you heartless monster!

Proverbs
Pedro Vialle Jul 1
A rolling stone gathers no moss
quite smart words, I must say
but alas, no bird lives away from a nest
and no seed grows on moving earth
so listen to me, young soul
let thy mind seek some rest
grow yer roots, try thy patience
and you shall see that it's best
to be at peace
than to be fast paced
and to have loved
than runned away
My grandmother always said that those who are patient and sturdy lives to see the world change

Tears
Pedro Vialle Jun 30
When I was young
my father used to say
that the man who cries is weak
and deserves all the suffering he takes
So I grew up dry as a desert
not allowing myself to breath
acting tough and always faking it
that was how I used to be
Until one day, a very hard one
I finally fell and broke
screaming with the pains of so many years
of so many failures, of so many words
My tears were washing my face
making me feel like a kid again
but my father ain't around anymore
so I didn't restrained
And when I was done
not sure if after hours or a day
I've never felt so much better
because I was, finally, me again
Not my best, I'm sure. But this is how these words came out, so I decided to let 'em be

I'm tired
officially done
my mind feels broken
and my body does not respond
life became too heavy
my emotions too much to deal
the mirror shows nothing but trouble
a future seems so unreal
Maybe today, if I'm lucky
which sadly I usually ain't
will be the last of these awful
bleak, sad and terrible days
so let's just end it here
as I need to go and sleep
waiting for this night to end
and tomorrow to rise on me
Good Lord, things have not been great lately...

If
Pedro Vialle Jun 23
If
I wonder
if there is something else
than the tears that fall from my eyes
or the mess in my own head
if there is indeed
something other than this
I want it
Oh Lord, I need it
Kinda messy, but words come from feelings, so it felt right
Pedro Vialle Jun 10
I wish I had happy things to write
lots of happy stuff, with more to make it rhyme
but these days my eyes are all tears
and my heart aches as much as it beats
so for now, no sunshine and rainbows
nor joy or jolly conversation
only cold and dark
irony and snark
words of regret and fear
lonesome and horrific feels
it's all I have to say and- oh, hi love!
Forget what I just said
It's kinda amazing how just seeing someone you love make our days brighter
Pedro Vialle Jun 6
Sometimes it's easier
to live and let go
forget about what's done
looking only foward and above
to let the past turn to ash
and put the ghosts down to rest
to bury all there was
and never look back

But I dare to say, confident of truth
there's wisdom behind us
certainly something of use
not everything for sure
as mistakes were always made
but in those errors lies the wisdom
to not make them again

So yes, the future is bright
shining always in the distance
but never neglect your past
not even for an instant!

It made you
who you are today
they are gone, thanks the heavens
all those tears and pains
but they are ours, still
like it or not
so use them for you
maybe keep them in a ***
and open it once
in a while or a lot
go ahead make them yours
be like their King
and learn from yourself
what you were and what you may be
I dealt with a lot in all my not-so-many years of life. And I'm kinda tired of running from all that. Heartbreaks, disease, depression, let 'em come! My own history shall be my armor against the world...

Today felt like an endless night
cold, cloudy and whithout stars
wind running trough the leafless trees
the winter chill freezing my feet
I really missed you today, my love
and how your voice made me feel so warm
how your eyes made me feel safe
and how your love made me feel alive
Everything is so cold when I'm alone...

Fool of Hearts
Pedro Vialle May 11
I wish I wasn't this fool
to not be oblivious to all your moves
as we danced together along
to the marvelous song
of two beating hearts
Lord help me and my messy mind

Sors Nostra Sumus

Loud as thunder

and tomorrow belongs to none
so there are no bounds

Take your future for yourself

Stormbound
Pedro Vialle Apr 28
I will not break
no matter the wind
I will not sink
no matter how harsh the sea
I ain't dying now
for nigh the time to reap
all I sowed with my tears
Even the worst of storms eventually go away...

Today was okay
nothing else, nothing much
just a day
when time went by the hours
with no one to see
and I was just there
oblivious to all but me
playing in my toughts
with all sorts of things
I love these days, when all I do is... well, nothing :)

Lo and Behold
Pedro Vialle Apr 23
Far in the sky
outside of my own mind
there is an infinite amount of light
so why?
why I delve into what's deep
when just an straight up look away
it's everything I need?
Whenever I feel trapped by my depression and anxiety, I look up and away into the night sky. It reminds me that the world is so much bigger than myself and there is so much more for me than my mind makes me belive!

Words
Pedro Vialle Apr 15
There aren't near as much
of all the world's prettier words
to describe how you make me feel
but perhaps I can try:
The sun shining over a lake of cristal water
and the song of the birds in the woods
or is it the cosiness of a warm blanket
in the middle of the winter chill?
The starlight painting the world in silver
and the moon's glow cold in my skin
or maybe it is the feeling of that kiss
when everything but us turned to mist
Hm... No.
Nothing will do
because of all of these words
there is none better than You
The beginning is a bit messy, but I think this came out well!
Pedro Vialle Apr 10
I have this weight on my shoulders
this pain in my chest
because I just can't be the me
that all those people want me to be
yes, I may be broken
all over the place
lonely, weird and whatnot
but I'm me
and that, my dear
should be enough
I am what I am and people should just stop talking about how I should change. I'm me and that's it!

All Things Have an End
Pedro Vialle Apr 8
I tought that seeing you
walking down that path
away from me and getting further
never looking back
was going to hurt me
but it wasn't true
'cause I want to see you happy
as I couldn't make you
To see someone You love move on is sad... But then again, if They are happy, so should We be!

These Days
Pedro Vialle Apr 2
I'm always looking further than the horizon
with toughts far from the ground
my heart beating hard against the chest
and mind flying at the speed of sound
Every night I dream of you
and every day I long for sleeping again
'cause if awake I can't even be in the same room
my wish is granted in Morpheus domain
Oh Fate, cruel is thee
for separating my love and me
with the foul barrier
of being unrequited
I always have problems with rhyming the first and last few verses... Hope it's still good, though!
Mar 24 · 193
Please
Pedro Vialle Mar 24
Let me sit here
and let life go by me
and finally I'll be forgotten
left to be ash on the side of the road
stepped on like I always was
no value, no worth
no one to care
so end this, please
let go and forget
Why wouldn't you give up on me?
I'm just a rock in your way
so kick me to the side
and go away
before I ruin everything
like I always do
Mar 23 · 95
Summer
Pedro Vialle Mar 23
You are my Sun

making me happy to know

a new day arised
and with it

Spring
Pedro Vialle Mar 22
My heart is like a forest
right after winter's end
the trees all without leaves
and no life withstands
but when You are here
like the first rays of sun
bathing once more the hard frozen land
life again will arise
revealing it's amazing flowers
Mar 21 · 122
Winter
Pedro Vialle Mar 21
I need your light with me
lest I forget how the Sun feels
and when I look above in the grey
I will remember that one day it was blue

I need your embrace
or the snow shall not melt away
forever weighing on my shoulders
covering me up until I am no more

I need You
this hearth won't be enough
for the fire heats the body
but only you can warm my soul
Oh, to feel alone is inspiring... Painfully inspiring

Fall
Pedro Vialle Mar 17
I walked among the old trees
hearing the rustling of the dried leaves
feeling my feet sinking lightly into the mushy earth
while around me the wind was playing a song
and by the river the water meandered in it's shallow bed
In the middle of all this, there was me
so young in a much older world
and when my truths were washed away
I knew the fears I had were no more
Mar 14 · 170
Sorry
Pedro Vialle Mar 14
I said words of love
but I regret doing this to You
don't get me wrong
then they were true
and yes, I love You
but not how I tought I would...
Sorry
Hope I can be forgiven for this... I never wanted to hurt anyone, but I mistook a powerful friendship for something else and then things went very fast down the proverbial hill...
What to do in a situation like this? I'm just afraid to hurt anymore that I probably already did...

Inside
Pedro Vialle Feb 24
Maybe one day I'll get up
shave, bath and put on some clothes
but for now there's no reason
to leave my dim and dank prison
for the world is for those who feel something
and all that I feel is nothing

Martyr
Pedro Vialle Feb 21
I was on the run
Heart beating to the sound of drums
seeing nothing but dark ahead
and the past chasing me down
When I fell
they played their wretched fanfare
then threw me into a wall
shooting me until they felt it was fair
Now, as I bleed to my death
drawing the last of my breaths
I smile with you in my mind
'cause they can break my body
but never my soul

We hear everyday
to make the most of ourselves
go far and go deep
never retreat
Yes, it is great to burn the brightest
but to burn brighter is to become ashes first
So give time the worth it deserves
walk calmly on the side of the road
and let your heart decide your fate
Feb 12 · 76
Hearts
Pedro Vialle Feb 12
I turned my heart into stone
to survive all those years
it was to avoid being hurt by someone
and muffle the sound of my tears

It was hardened and heavy
cold to the touch
it made me feel weary
like I was carrying  the weight of world

Nowadays my heart is red again
muscle and blood, emotion and tought
but sometimes I miss my cold stone walls
as it hurts to be human
Feb 9 · 98
Life
Pedro Vialle Feb 9
Some say
to be is to suffer
and others say
Life is there for us to enjoy
well, both are true
Because to live is to travel
in a long road
some parts good, some parts bad
but what really matters is the whole:
Our choices, our feelings
all the words we said, all the toughts we had
for in the end, it isn't our future:
it's what we left behind for others
Be kind to others and leave a better world wherever you go, as that's a major part of our afterlife: our mark in the mundane and in those who are still on it. If we can make their journey any easier, then we should, don't you think?

Saudade
Pedro Vialle Feb 7
Time doesn't go back
all moves foward like a train in it's track
But I wish that weren't the case
for when I look the kids outside
I miss so much of back in the day
And then I start to cry
my memories of old paying a visit
and I see how much I miss
All those things that never were
To miss something  (or someone) is already sad enough. But to miss something you never had... That's a tough pain to have in one's heart. (FYI Saudade is a word in Portuguese. There's no translation to it, but it means to miss something)

A Young Heart's Eulogy
Pedro Vialle Feb 6
In a world full of people
it is truly sad to feel alone
To be invisible
in the midst of your own
But then again
to live is to die
and maybe in death my soul will matter
or will I disappear whitout leaving a sign?

Pedro Vialle Jan 30
Long ago someone stole some of my years
and with them, all the friends I didn't had
all the games I didn't played
all the loves I've never felt
all of my rainy days by the window
and all my sunny days in the water
So I went from a little kid to a cold grown up
heart of stone and eyes of steel
making a dam with all my tears
hiding away in the dark
and all of that because they wanted to laugh
Yeah, I know this doesn't rhyme
Nor there are commas in the rightful places or the usual period
all of this is a mess way more that is a poem
but there is nothing I can do
since this is the way my head is right now
All those terrible days
where I was tortured for being me
when my loved books where tossed in the ***** floor
and a chunk of chewed bubble gum was stuck in my hair
They just keep coming back
and back
and back again
and some more
until I'm nothing more than a shadow of myself
Maybe it was my fault
how dared I to be different?
How I dared to be me when I clearly shouldn't?
I need to go now
bury myself some more in all these lies
lies about how all is so nice
and no, I'm not crying, it is a allergy
and no, these bruises were from a fall
yes, I'm okay mom
I'm okay
I'm okay
When in the truth, I wasn't even me anymore
Maybe one day I will forget about this
carry on with my life
but somehow I know
I'm going to miss all those years that never were
and feel sad for that poor boy
who died for me to live
