Nightmare
Max Vale Sep 7
i ran from monsters in the night,
from screaming demons in my mind.
i want my feet off off the ground,
its crumbling under me, the sound.
i reach my hands up to the sky,
maybe the angels will reply.
but its all silent.

Grandfather Clock
Max Vale Aug 20
you were always there
steady, reliable
tick-tock-tick-tock
stood there for years
never missed a beat
but you're getting older
the wood is beginning to wear
the pendulum is slowing
yet you're still going
the memories begin to fade
you still tick
but you can't remember my name.
It's hard seeing a loved one go through memory loss whether that be from dementia or other illnesses. My heart goes out to anyone in a similar situation.

8/8
sometimes it was like,
the sun was going to shine,
forever.
you by my side,
i didn't think life could be,
better.
but fall comes,
and turns into winter.
its not only the weather,
that gets a bit colder.

Still Carries On
Max Vale Jul 5
the first time we met,
it was like touching heaven.
didn't know it yet,
but it was a dream worth living,
even if it was for a second.
because i still think,
i can see your smile.
even though,
you've been gone,
your smile still carries on.

Among The Stars
Max Vale Jun 12
you always seemed love the sky,
the moon, the sun, the stars.
they all seem to shine a little brighter,
now that you're shining among them.

Phoenix
Max Vale Apr 20
A new dawn arrives,
In a blistering red heat.
A small flame
Becomes a bonfire.
But alas it won't last
Forever.
Fade into ashes and smoke.
Even brilliance
Becomes dust.
But tomorrow when
The moon sets.
The phoenix will rise.

Every day like a phoenix we are reborn into a new beginning. We only have 24 hours to do something. But even the things we build are temporary and will fade into dust. But tomorrow the ashes from today gives birth to a new phoenix.

Not With Me
Max Vale Apr 19
I'm not alone.
The wind still laughs with me.
The sun still smiles at me.
The ocean still waves back at me.

The wind's laughing at me.
The sun's smiling not because of me.
The ocean is not waving at me.
I am alone.
The world's a cruel place
Sometimes even when you're with others you still feel alone.

Older
Max Vale Apr 9
We grew up on the same street,
We blew dandelions into the sky.
We chucked shells into the blue sea,
Wondering what it would be like.

To grow older.

I came back to the same street,
It's not the same without you.
I can still hear the sound of your feet,
I can hear mine too.

Wish we didn't have to grow older.

Less Colder

When I get drunk,
And I am crying on your shoulder.
That's when I wish,
That the world was a little less colder.

Sunflowers
Max Vale Dec 2020
Sunflowers reach,
Up into the sky.
The sun is sparkling,
And so are your eyes.

Daisies are pretty,
Bluebells have style.
Lanterns are illuminating,
Just like your smile.

The ocean is vast,
You lift up my heart.
And just like my soul,
I hope we're never apart.

Sapphires Are Blue
Max Vale Oct 2020
Roses are red,
Violets are blue.
I can't sleep at night,
Because I'm thinking of you.

I know this is bad,
You lost my letter.
But now its gone,
It'll never get better.

So rubies are red,
Sapphires are blue.
Making next time,
I'll end up with you.

Into The Light

Into the light.

Violin
Max Vale Oct 2020
On the outside,
I've never fitted in.
It's like I'm alright,
But there's a violin,
Playing in the background.
Why doesn't my voice,
Make a sound?
Why is everyone,
Never around?

Deep blue eyes.

Ecstasy
Max Vale Oct 2020
Cuz I'll rather have you instead,
Than feeling so so depressed
Why can't you be my ecstasy,
Take all the pain away from me.
Maybe in another lifetime,
You'll be the one I call mine.
Because you are all I ever need,
Now it hurt so bad that you have to leave.
Double post haha sorry just feel sadly inspired

Depressed

We are all so depressed,
Wanting it to all end.
Want everything off my chest,
Waiting for the weekend.

Someone New
Max Vale Sep 2020
My head was pounding,
The world was spinning.
I can't see my surrounding,
Pain is only beginning.

I could hear your voice,
You were weeping and crying.
In the background noise,
I could hear the medics trying.

The silence is creeping,
A sleep I can't escape.
My eyes were falling,
My vision full of shapes.

I'm sorry I didn't make it for you,
Hope you can find someone new.

I Still Need You
Max Vale Sep 2020
You locked yourself away,
When we were fighting and screaming.
You refused to open the door,
When I was pounding and pleading.

The flashing lights came,
You were on the ground.
I was crying and praying,
For you to come around.

You looked lifeless on the bed,
Without you I'm incomplete.
The black raven bows its head,
I can't hear your heartbeat.

I still need you,
Please don't go.

Please Don't Leave Me
Max Vale Aug 2020
All you see is darkness,
Your heart is lost at sea.
Can you hear me begging,
"Please don't leave me"?

Looking Glass
Max Vale Aug 2020
Here I am on the other side,
Staring into the looking-glass.
Where I left my heart behind,
Wishing I could have it back.

And roll back time.

No Good To Me

Maybe then I'll be free.
But living life without you,

On this cold and dark night.

Angels Don't Cry

Even when she falls,
She'll rise again to fly.
That's what she's been taught,
Because angels don't cry.

Taking Off
Max Vale Jun 2020
And so we dispersed,
Lost her face in the crowd,
Boarding a plane,
She's taking off the ground.

Now she's in her seat,
Do you think of me?
I know I do,
Those beautiful eyes of blue.

The sun's come up,
It's another new day.
Up in the clouds,
She's slowly flying away.

Touching down,
We're back home.
Isn't it weird?
I've left my heart in Rome.

But we have to move on,
It's part of life.
Yet I still long to see,
Your face against mine.

Wherever we go,
We're under the same sky.
Hope we meet again,
Before we have to die.
A year ago I met the most beautiful at an airport on vacation. Probably the greatest holiday I've ever been on. I wish I could see you again, airport girl. Thank you for the best days of my life.
Jun 2020 · 72
On Vacation
Max Vale Jun 2020
My mind has been lost,
In translation.
Wish I could go back,
To where I met you on vacation.
Miss you Airport girl, its been a year

Falling For You

I'll follow you if the road is burning
Even when death comes calling
Even when the world stops turning
I will never stop falling

In love with you

Close Your Eyes
Max Vale Jun 2020
All these angels and demons,
Keep trying to chase me.
To get inside my head,
And into my dreams.
They're all I see.

But demons are weak,
And angels will cry.
And the monsters?
They can also die.

You can run,
But you cannot hide.
So don't be afraid,
To close your eyes.

Just a Kid
Max Vale May 2020
I'm just a kid,
I don't know life.
All I know is that,
I've got to get it right.

Perhaps its the road,
Maybe a sharp bend.
But there's a reward,
Waiting at the end.

Sometimes the path leads you astray,
But that's OK.
You'll live to another day.
Let the demons go away.

I'll learn as I go,
The journey is enough.
Hopefully I'll have a chance,
To find true love.

To Fade
Max Vale May 2020
It's a long road,
And I'm on my own.
I'm scared of the things,
That I don't know.

As the night comes,
I look up to the sky.
I send a prayer,
Hoping my dreams won't die.

I wish my monsters will leave,
And the demons will go away.
I'm just begging,
For the darkness to fade.

Why Did She Leave?
Max Vale May 2020
She told me she loved me,
Loved her like a princess from Disney.
Still wondering why she tricked me,
Why the **** did she leave me?

Come Through

I'm lost in my imagination,
All my thoughts are thinking of you.

I Love You So Bad
Max Vale Mar 2020
Moved out of town,
Went looking for you.
Where are you now?
You were gone too soon.
The past was then,
I made a mistake.
I wanna hold you again,
I wanna see your face.
I searched day and night,
You've been gone for so long.
Gotta keep it tight,
I gotta stay strong.
Nothing but you,
Can heal my heart.
You not being here,
Tears it apart.
The memories we had,
They'll never be gone.
I'll never forget,
Your favorite song.
It plays in my heart,
It echoes in my head.
I'll never give up,
Until I'm dead.
When I find you,
I'll hold you close.
I'll whisper in your ear,
"I'll never let you go".
Cuz -

I love you so bad

Sorry You Lost Me
Max Vale Mar 2020
I don't wanna fall asleep,
I don't wanna shut my eyes.
Because every time I close them,
All I think about is lies.
The promises you made,
You said you loved me too.
But now you're gone our memories will fade,
Like all the love I had for you.
But I want to fall into bed,
After a very long day.
I want to feel your touch again,
Saying it'll all be OK.
Now I'm sad you're gone,
You never said goodbye.
And like all my dreams,
They'll surely fade and die.
But now we're done,
I hope you'll finally see.
There was no need to run,
I'm sorry you lost me.

This Place Called Paradise
Max Vale Jan 2020
This place called paradise,
Is where I want to be.
The limit is the sky,
For you and me.

Nothing can touch us,
The world is at our feet.
Can't you finally see?
It was meant to be?
