I didn’t plan on dying at your feet tonight,
but here I am bleeding out
without a breath to spare.
Was I ever anything more than this to you,
a badly worded promise
failing its own intentions?
am i worth an answer?
Mitch Prax Jul 2018
I know a girl
on the other side of the world
she's my flesh and blood
my heart and soul
but I'm stuck with the blues
the baby blues now
Mitch Prax Dec 2018
The distant lights
in your eyes were a beacon
on nights long ago
I would’ve spent alone.
Mitch Prax Jan 2014
I see you differently now
I no longer need you
It took years to see who you really are
I no longer find myself identifying with you
I see now that you gave me the courage to break free
Break free from your beauty inside a black frame
Mitch Prax Sep 2017
I didn’t believe in fate
Until the universe
Threw me into
Your arms
I didn’t believe in souls
Until our souls
Became one
and the same
No, I didn’t believe in angels
not until I saw you smile;
a heavenly aura
Of beauty
And light
Mitch Prax May 3
they'll save your life-
they'll break your heart.
You don't know which
was better or worse.
Mitch Prax Feb 15
You don't need
a 'better-half'.
what you need
is to make yourself
whole again.
Mitch Prax Jan 2018
I do try
not to be a bitter person;
bitter about the life I live,
the life I want to live,
and a life that slipped away.
I do my best not to write bitterly,
And it's true, I sometimes do.
I do my best not to be so bitter,
though I can and often am.
I wonder if it's in my DNA
or because of a life so grey
But **** it,
I do my best.
Mitch Prax Aug 2014
I could tell that
the drive home would
be a bitter one
Her purple lips
They plagued my mind
How could something
So sweet
Leave such a bitter taste?
Her scent
Still fills the car
So close
Yet so far away
So sweet
so bittersweet
Mitch Prax Oct 2017
There's a black cat
that follows me home
every night I feel her gaze
cut to the bone.
I walk in her shadow
I cannot escape
sometimes it's more
than I can take.
There's no use running,
she's always one step ahead
though some will say
it's all just in my head
Black cat, turn away
I'm growing tired
of this struggle
every day
Mitch Prax Jan 2018
Why is it that broken people
confide in my words?
Is it because I’m broken too?
Are we shards from the same bottle?
Does it help when we fit into place?
You and I, a tragic jigsaw puzzle
Or when I put you back together?
I don’t know why it is,
All I know is that my words
bring a temporary relief
to myself and
to the broken people
Mitch Prax Mar 18
my dream has been a
curse in one too many ways-
I found and I lost you.
Mitch Prax Jul 2017
Suicide;
it doesn't stop the pain.
It packs it into a grenade,
amd throws it
to your loved ones.
Mitch Prax Mar 18
I guess this love was never reciprocated.
Now, our words just linger and fade
like bedroom cigarette smoke.
Maybe my heart will also fade
out of my chest on my walk home.
That’d be nice.
Mitch Prax Apr 14
It's when no one believes in you-
that's when you have to come through
but oh, it's such a hard thing to do.
Mitch Prax Feb 1
Every time
I tell myself
not to love you,
it feels like the entire universe
is fighting back against me.
Mitch Prax Aug 2015
Like the sun,
she brightens up my day
Always there, never far away
Like Mercury,
She’s scorched with beauty
A dazzling image full of glee
Like Venus,
A goddess in my mind
A divine gift for all mankind
Like Earth,
Her heart is where I make my home
An aura so real, I never feel alone
Like Mars,
Her hair, it runs with red
she annihilates any tear I shed
Like Jupiter,
She has the largest heart
She herself: a work of art
Like Saturn,
Beauty surrounds her like a ring
So light and divine, almost floating
Like Uranus,
She goes against the grain
Free from the world, she breaks the chain
Like Neptune,
Her passion rages like the wind
she sets out like a storm to rescind
Like Pluto,                  
So distant but never forgotten
Dancing for eternity around the sun
Mitch Prax Oct 2018
I’d crawl
back to love
even if
it was waiting
to destroy me,
again.
Mitch Prax Apr 2018
This car seems to drive itself.
I no longer feel the wheel in my grasp,
nor do I see the stretch of road ahead.
But do I see the black sunset
consuming the sky above.
I notice as the colour fades,
my headlights break through
the growing darkness.
I can see every changing moment;
the car drives on
Mitch Prax Dec 2018
She asked if I
wanted to dance in the ocean
I said 'only if
you promise we won't drown'.
Mitch Prax Mar 2018
Light dances off your red dress;
I think I adore you.
But it’s never the right time,
the clock ticks and distance
drags us apart like two galaxies
helpless against the dark energy
that keep us in our place.
It only reminds me
that time is running out;
that we’re moving further apart
and never toward one another..
Oh, what I wouldn’t give to hold you
to hear your voice guide me to sleep,
to undo this dark energy between us.
Mitch Prax Aug 2014
It’s the end of winter
And happily,
The sun is smiling
Down on me

It’s the dawn of spring
And calmingly,
The moon is smiling
Down on me
Mitch Prax Dec 2018
I saw you,
daydreaming yourself into a world
that is kinder than the one we live in.
Good for you,
that kind of peace
is hard to find.
Mitch Prax Mar 1
So foolish to
think that we are enough for
each other’s demons
Mitch Prax Jan 2014
Your happiness shouldn’t depend solely on a person.
Whether they don’t care half as much about you,
whether they’ve moved on,
whether you’ve never met them,
whether you hardly know them,
whether you miss them,
whether they ****** you over or
whether they might not even exist.
...but I can’t help it.
Mitch Prax Jan 2014
It is paranoia which destroys a man
Like oil destroys the sea
It is anxiety which destroys a man
Like termites destroy a tree
It is jealousy which destroys a man
Like disaster destroys a street
It is hatred which destroys a man
Like cold destroys the heat
It is worry which destroys a man
Like pollution destroys the air
It is anger which destroys a man
Like bleach destroys the hair
It is **** which destroys a man
Like darkness destroys the light
It is heartbreak which destroys a man
Like sunlight destroys the night
Mitch Prax Oct 2013
Memories are like stones
Time and distance erode them like acid
and I’m standing alone
I was certain that I found a diamond
I felt myself fading away
Like a memory of yours buried in the past
If only you would stay
You’re my diamond that cannot be destroyed
Mitch Prax Jan 2014
do you ever get the feeling that
The closer you connect with someone,
the further away you feel?
do you ever get the feeling that
when you think of someone so much,
that every thought seems real?
Mitch Prax Apr 11
Tomorrow
is tomorrow
is tomorrow
is tomorrow-
if only i could
become unstuck.
Mitch Prax Dec 2018
Well, I guess it's
just one of those nights
when I don't care if my batteries die
and I don’t switch on  
tomorrow.
Mitch Prax Mar 27
You're a dream
I want to get lost in -
One I don't wish to wake from.
Mitch Prax Jun 2018
Sure, I am just a passenger
in this story of your life
but each ride exhilarates me;
it rocks me to my core
and leaves me wanting more.
I always leave with a smile,
like we drove to the top of the world;
the perfect stop to drop me off
and let loose the butterflies
I collected along the way.
Mitch Prax Mar 21
When I eclipse,
just know that we will meet again
and you will be at my side.
I will shine on you again
and we will give the world
something they won't forget-
a dazzling twilight for all to see.
I am your sun,
you are my moon.
Don't leave me in darkness
anytime soon.
Mitch Prax Feb 2018
when you take out
every part of me,
leaving it all behind
and filling me
with yourself,
every inch and feeling
and every thought of you
has consumed me whole
and then you leave
me behind too
Mitch Prax Feb 2018
I wish they’d all go away;
The crowds, the voices,
all of it.
Yet they continue
to fill these empty days.
Time will continue to fade
and bring a brand new day
to waste my life away.
Mitch Prax Jan 2018
If someone told me
you’d be mine
sending me your love
all the time
I would have laughed.
But it seems as if
This endless fairytale
is in our eyes again
such a perfect story
and a dream so intense
this isn’t making sense.
Mitch Prax Oct 2018
I wonder how much pain,
that all-too-real pain,
I’m enduring on a daily basis.
I’m used to feeling like the weight of the world
is balancing on my heart
whenever I open that door
or a tidal wave of dread
plowing into my chest
every time I open my mouth,
but I wonder how much pain
I truly endure.
Each day seems to take a different toll.
Yes, some are better than others,
yet when I recall
how much I have endured,
I wonder if I should be amazed or ashamed;
I haven’t figured that out yet.
Mitch Prax Mar 7
I wish I could fall
together
as quickly as I
fall apart
Mitch Prax May 3
We choose people
so far from home
but no matter the distance
we never feel alone.
Mitch Prax Feb 8
It isn't always the light
at the end of the tunnel
or a brand new
sunrise
you see at first.
No, the first light
usually comes
in the form
of a person
during dark times.
Mitch Prax Feb 24
Viking cats live
in such magnificent ways,
and he was no different-
Valhalla awaits him.
Mitch Prax Jan 2018
Love is like a flower
It can be so delicate
And when you are seduced    
with its beauty and delicacy
You will want to pluck it.
But plucking, in essence,
Kills the flower
Love is different.
Love is leaving it be;
Letting it flourish
and growing with the flower.
Love is watering the flower
when it needs it.
Love is letting the flower
Live among its kind
if it desires it.
Love is appreciating,
Love is beautiful
but when one tries to control
or mold someone into an idea,
this is when love dies
Mitch Prax Oct 2018
There was never any love,
no harm in letting go.
The pain came from grasping the thorns
attached to the beautiful ones.
There’s no regret planted here,
only trambled hopes and withered dreams.
No bad memories can bloom
in a garden that rejects salting,
but for the slower, grey days,
find a mirror and love the image
until the tears stop.
Mitch Prax Feb 4
my baby girl
is like fresh laundry
straight out of the dryer-
so soft, so warm
so similar to home.
Mitch Prax Nov 2018
Look in the mirror.
If you still see something there,
then nothing else matters.
Other’s blindness to your worth
is a “them” problem,
not a “you” problem.
Mitch Prax Aug 2016
I do not get to hold you
But in my dreams that is not true
nor can I feel your tender kiss
but the thought alone brings me bliss

I do not get to dry your tears
but one day I’ll chase away your fears  
Nor can I see your glowing smile
The one that can warm any reptile

I do not get to hold your hand
But I can sing about you in a band
Nor can I wake up next to you
But give it time, we’ll make it true
Mitch Prax Mar 2
It stormed yesterday.
Today the sky is clear
and now they're yours
to conquer.
So remember, whenever struggle
and pain are present,
it will always pass-
the oceans are yours to surpass.
So fill your heart,
Purge your mind,
Spread your wings,
Go ahead and fly, kid,
The world is yours.
Mitch Prax Feb 12
Memories never leave us,
no matter how much time has passed.
How selfish of the human mind-
to dig up memories
one thought they had buried
long ago.
