It may not seem like it,
but no one,
not one person,
has their life 100% together.
Everyone has their struggles
and everyone shows it in different ways.
Mitch Prax Apr 2015
I’m afraid of living in a
dreary world without you
So I went out into the fields
And picked
ten thousand sunflowers.
As they brightened my room
I was reminded
of the way your eyes
would brighten up my life
Mitch Prax Mar 2018
Love is not 50/50,
that is just a half-assed attempt
at an emotion that takes it all
and expecting to make it.
Love is 100/100,
so you’re giving all you’ve got
to someone who gives you their all.
It may not work out,
but it isn’t because you didn’t try.
Now it has come to an end,
you kiss goodbye,
and wave each other off
into the fading sunset
and not feel an ounce
of regret.
Mitch Prax Aug 2021
If I could
rearrange the Earth,
all of the flowers would
spell your name.
Mitch Prax Jul 2015
This feeling returns
Like running in circles
It's getting old
It leaves me at the
bottom of the bottle
lonely and cold
Mitch Prax Feb 2015
There’s a weight on my heart
And it’s ripping me apart
There’s a pressure in my chest
Again, it puts me to the test
Mitch Prax Oct 2018
Somewhere tonight
there’s a girl writing a song
between working two jobs,
ignoring the voices that
tell her to give up.
I hope she never does.
I hope her future
is a bright one.
Mitch Prax Jun 2018
I was reading over your poetry,
again.
Like somehow, if I repeat it
enough times
you would come back
and I would find myself
in your words
again.
Mitch Prax Apr 2020
I don't know
how to leave behind
all of these lingering feelings
that still dwell
from within.
Mitch Prax Feb 2018
I have not forgotten your name
nor what you did to my heart
the way it skipped a beat
from the way you light up
any room like a piece of art
Mitch Prax Jul 2021
Sometimes
things don't work out
the way you hoped they would.
It's as simple
as that.
Mitch Prax Dec 2018
Some nights I don’t want to be here anymore,
yet here I am still dragging myself through
another day of “it could be worse”
alongside my demons
and broken promises.
Mitch Prax Nov 2020
It was
a bad year for all,
but 2020 is
merely an illusion.
The arrow of time will
forever stretch in the direction
of chaos and
misery.
Mitch Prax Jan 2020
2019 began
in a shimmer of hope, of peace,
a little light at the end of the tunnel
that was this decade.
And now it is time to
bid farewell,
to not only 2019,
but welcome in another year
and decade with open hearts.
Even if life didn't go according to plan,
I do hang on to the hope of a future
so very far from my past.
Mitch Prax Jan 2021
Another year
is here,
another promise
of change.
But my only wish
is for our love
to stay
the same.
Mitch Prax Jan 2021
Each year is
a roller-coaster
of disappointment-
why would this year
be any
different?
Mitch Prax May 2019
It’s terrifying
when you get hit
with a revelation at 2am
that you can’t picture yourself
five or ten years into the future
sharing a cosy suburban apartment
with the love of your life,
with a family to call your own.
Mitch Prax Feb 2019
Does anyone catch themselves
in between two realities?
Do you wake up in a cold sweat
from a dream your mind still believes
is real?
Obsessing over every little detail
until your mind collapses from exhaustion.
This isn't a poem,
this is a question-
or is it?
I can't decide.
Mitch Prax Nov 2019
All of her words
were as empty as her
bottle of gin.
All he could do
was love her.
Mitch Prax Feb 2019
Why am I so preoccupied
with distracting myself
from me?
Mitch Prax Apr 2020
I guess I
will always be
writing about you
even though you
might not see
these words.
Mitch Prax Jan 2018
The simplicity
of a short but blunt
and simple poem
can temporarily
cast out the
demons that
roam inside
my head
Mitch Prax Apr 2018
The way you smiled at me
almost had me believe
that I mattered
again
Mitch Prax Feb 2018
What was scary as the monsters
Was living in my head
all along.
Mitch Prax Jul 2018
Awake and thinking about you
and all things we didn't say.
On nights like this I find myself
wishing you were still in my reach
We both still live in the same big city
but it’s not the place we knew.

Another year,
another piece of me
that is getting
left behind.
Mitch Prax Mar 2018
I don’t know
when or where,
but I know I’ll
meet you there
Mitch Prax Mar 2021
The clock strikes
Three Thirty-Three
and I am alone with these thoughts,
once again.
This could go
either way.
Mitch Prax Jul 2021
How many nights
have you laid awake
wondering if life
will ever change?

Oh, how big you have grown,
how smart you are getting and
how creative you have become!
I could not be more proud and
these are just few of the reasons
I miss you more
with each passing day!
Mitch Prax Mar 2019
Up until 4 am,
for no reason at all-
time just ran away,
And I wish you could
have stayed for
one more night.
Mitch Prax Jan 2019
calling it heartache
was a gentle way
of putting it.

I wasn’t sure if it was
the pounding of my heart,
the gentle autumn touch,
or your smile I call art
but it happened all too fast
Under the radiant moon
it happened like a dream
a dream too good to be true
Mitch Prax Jan 2017
I've been dancing
with the ghost
of you
I've been dreaming
of the past,
it's true
Now I'm thinking
of the present,
today
But you wished it
to hell and all
away
Mitch Prax Jun 2018
Your heart isn’t true;
not anymore.
And now this feeling of blue
leaves me unsure
because I can’t believe you;
can’t see you the same no more.
Mitch Prax Feb 2019
There was once a bird
trapped inside a cage
of the darkest blues.
He forgot how to fly-
he forgot how to sing.
He cannot remember why
he got here with this wing.
Mitch Prax Mar 2018
spring has sprung
and i’m left in
the snowy mountains
to face the damage done.
Mitch Prax May 2018
I ache for skies I have not seen,
and for people I have not met.
But most of all,
I ache for you.
Mitch Prax Jul 2021
My memories
are carried by the southern breeze
across the oceans
to the one I long for.
Our goodbyes wonder endlessly
on foreign shores and
I can still hear your whispers
drift through the
darkest of nights.
Mitch Prax Nov 2019
I didn't want to find love-
but then I found you,
and found a love so real.
but then I lost you-
That is why I didn't want
to find love.
Mitch Prax May 2019
We embrace the darkness
with arms wide open because
we've nothing else to hold.
Mitch Prax May 2019
a deep long lust
followed by a deep long kiss
followed by a deep long sigh
Mitch Prax Dec 2019
Let our tongues
be our swords and
our words as arrows.
Let us duel,
blood for blood
and nothing less.
Mitch Prax Mar 2020
She led me
to her distant world,
a strange yet ethereal land.
I had never gazed upon
such beauty
all around me.
Was it heaven?
No, it was all her.
Mitch Prax Dec 2019
Set the past on fire,
but don't forget to
admire every flame.
Mitch Prax May 2020
I used to
chase the sun.
I feared the sunset
and the darkness
that would prevail.
I didn't think the horizon
could be more beautiful
until I found my moon
that is you.
Mitch Prax Mar 26
What happens after death?
Someone sheds a tear for you,
smiles for you,
and the memories live on,
as you live on,
alive in another.
