Sometimes I wonder
Auss Apr 2016
Does my soul shine with light
Or does it hide deep in the night

My fear ever growing
With my mind not knowing

What will my judges say
Was I night or was I day

Can my mark of death be reversed
Or am I doomed to die cursed

Can I ever be truly saved
If to the darkness I'm enslaved.

Never in my life has the silence of this place
Been so deeply filled with His grace
I start to smile and begin to cry
Finally learning happy is no lie

I feel the wind blow
I smell the earth
Finally I have come to know
All that is my own worth

He gave his son for you and me
So that we can live sin free
I fix myself and begin to walk
While to him I continue to talk

Along the empty path
To help free others from the wrath

The Lord sets us free
Free of sin
Free to begin

Yet here we remain
Dwelling in pain
Our purity we stain

But by His grace
Those sins erase
And we return to His embrace

I made you my everything
so when you left I  had nothing

You shined so bright
Now the world is dull
Your face was light

Now I'm laying here in bed
just wishing I was dead,
evil thoughts echoing in my head

Auss May 2015
Let me go to sleep tonight
while all is calm, and all is right
then take from me the awful blight
take from me the twinkling light

For when i lay upon the bed
dangerous thoughts flow through my head
makes me want to wind up dead
this cursed life finally shed

If i am to re-awake
it would be a grave mistake
while my own heart should seem so fake
to lose this world would ice the cake

I don't know serenity
I'm drowning in obscurity
Sorry to speak so blatantly
but you're the reason for my trivalty.

If you were a rock you'd be a diamond,
no not a diamond but a ruby
Not because of your red hair
but because of your impurity

Because even with impurity,
you still shine so bright to me.

I would be a lump of coal
burning bright
so you can shine,
for one brief moment
My light is thine.
little red i love you so much.  But i worry that maybe... i don't give you the light that you deserve

The Promise I Never Broke
Auss May 2015
I wake up every morning
my heart for you is yearning
but your love I will never know
because for you I had to go
put on that uniform everyday
while you're on your knees to pray
I'd kiss your cheek and say good bye
then put on my wings so I could fly
I knew you couldn't see me
but I still tried to make you happy
Watching over you
making sure your sky stayed blue
I said I'd never leave
and I never did, so please believe
I may have passed beyond your touch
but I still love you oh so much
So please show me that grin
because I'll see you once again
I'll still be here when I'm gone, listen in the wind for my song. I love you beyond the test of time

Lit the match, to watch it catch a flame, the pain of passion is what's to blame. placing the world in a spire of fire that climbs ever higher.  Reaching for the sky refusing to die,  the spire of fire released a mournful cry.

You say you don't want to hurt me
I said you never could
in reality,  I meant you never would

I opened up to you
And to you I am 100% true
Please remember that

We have history you and me
You think you and he have any?
I want to be yours for once

Can't we just forget about you and him?
It makes my future start to seem really grim
Why not us like it used to be

Hey little red
Just relax and rest your head
I know i haven't been around,
But I'm still here to keep you out the ground
I won't leave so easy this time
If i did it would be a crime
I know now that it was a mistake
The people that i chose to trust were just fake
Please come back to me
I still love you can't you see?

I know it might be too late
Maybe I waited too long
I finally get now that what i did was wrong
Little Red, I'm sorry, for everything. Just know i love you and whatever you choose I'll try to live with it as best I can

We lift this drink those who're dead

We lift this drink to the Holy priest

We lift this drink to the grudging father
We lift this drink to the loving mother

We lift this drink for our past sorrow
We lift this drink for more tomorrow

We lift this drink for one more night
but most importantly...
We lift this drink for ONE MORE PINT

They lower you into the soil
You always passed on through each toil

Seven shots sound
Seven shots heard

Mother cries into my shoulder,
I look away as i lose my brother

Seven shots sound

This nations life you did preserve.

I wish that i had the ability
to alter the forces that made me

I would choose to be a champion
instead of the king of the demon

While every gold, diamond, and treasure
Can fill my earthly pleasure

Yours to serve, love, and protect
Treated with kindness, care, and respect

But sadly I am the demon king
Bound to darkness and suffering

I'm sorry for the joke i made
I know you are better then me

I'm sorry for my sarcasm
I got worried that i might let you in
I thought you were smarter then me

I'm sorry for that jab I through
I thought you were stronger then me

I'm sorry for everything I did
I just wanted you to be tougher then me

I didn't know you'd leave so soon
I must look like a goon
even though I'm the one who popped you like a balloon
Don't wait until it's too late to right your wrongs. Own up to your Errors and be polite. Every life and opinion is important

Sometimes,  somedays
I just want to fade away
to sink into my poetry
among the lines for all to see
my soul to rest on every word
such dreams, such nonsense it is absurd
but yet I hope to dare
That my work spread everywhere
filled with soul and loved with grace
pushing darkness from this place

but my presence you dread

Just leave me alone
take every last stone
and every last bone
I won't be your drone!

if you look a little deeper

I'm a lot less then you expect of me
Lived on the edge so long I don't even teeter

Iron rain with metal steel
Families and friends in horror cried
As under the destructive wheel
Their loved ones died

Around the world was silence
Shocked in awe by radical violence
My home now burning
My stomach churning

Death, pain and misery
Filled the land of the free
A tribute to the 2752 dead and their families from 9/11

Love is a rose.
Beautiful yet dangerous
Only dying if left untended
Only hurt you if you aren't careful.
Yet once you have the rose and are holding it safe, gentle,  and careful
you can understand the full beauty in the appearance,  journey, and danger

Too late
Auss Sep 2014
They say nothing lasts forever
So I called you my nothing.
That didn't mean I stopped loving,
I just wanted us to be together.

But I was too late.
You didn't want to wait
You didn't want to stay
So I let you walk away

I didn't realize it would end like this
My emotions a complete mess
While watching you lie there
Not a sign of life left anywhere...
Young love cut short.

Every smile on my face
Is simply feelings I misplace
I throw in my headphones
The ones with skulls and crossbones
Then I crank up my tunes and fly
To where the rocks touch the sky
I draw away my pain
Creating pictures all in vain
Because you won't see them
You won't ever realize you are my gem
then the darkness refills me
and I'll smile so weakly
As I give them all to you
She doesn't realize that my best art is her

Without ever wanting me to see

Silver haired and pearly whites
You always gave good advice

Loving grandfather full of care
A family of dozens for you to bear

A Wise counselor in the school
Respect all life was a rule

A loving husband for 60 years
You far surpassed all your peers

Your kids are grown
And their seeds are sewn.

Go in peace dearest Myles
For you have made many Smiles

Alas magic is not true
Once, it was to me
But then I met you
And you stole the magic so quickly

Put high on a shelf
Behind steel bars
Trapped in a jar

Magic is our individuality. And the you is Society.  It takes our special magic and makes us plain and normal. Trapping those who refuse to conform in institutions as "insane"

Says Pat to his mother, "It looks strange to see
Brothers fighting in such a queer manner.
But I'll fight till I die, if I never get killed,
For America's bright, starry banner."

The night before battle and all through the camp
the soldiers lay close in their quarters
The were thinking no doubt of their lives ones at home
Mothers, wives, children, and daughters

There was a blade in the east
who sat all alone, singing a song so gaily
Twas honest Pat Murphy of the irish brigade
Singing o shattered shillelagh

Unto the bugles call, did poor Patty wake
To give the rebel satisfaction
The Devils drummer beat a tune
That called the boys to action

The Day after battle the dead lied in heaps
Pat Murphy lay bleeding and gory
Caught in the gut by an enemies ball
It ended his passion for glory

And all around camp,  not a sound to be heard
No song of the land of shillelagh
His letters unread, from the family of dear Patrick Murphy

And far in the east say a dashing young blade
Who went by Pat Murphy
Singing a song of old Irelands cause
The song of the shattered shillelagh
War ballad of Ireland and the Civil War

Terror of all countries
Makes them shake at the knee

Just none to command them

Stay true to you. Don't CONFORm to make others more COMFORtable.

Cold steel slides across my skin.  
In so much pain. I let you in.
Now I bleed red.
I'm better off dead.

My life is cheap
30 pills and the bottle only puts me to sleep
A rope from a deck
didn't stretch out my neck
A gallon of gas
But my life didn't pass
And a blade, at least one for each finger
And yet my life seems to linger

I'm come to the conclusion
that happiness is an illusion.
And the only one who can take my life

Is the girl I gave a knife.
The girl I owe my life
The girl who causes my strife.
The girl who I love.

Wolves, not sheep
Auss May 2014
I am not a sheep
I am not a lamb
I will not docilate our race
That's just the way I am.

Humanity is a strange beast
we claim to be the sheep,
But for our Shepherd we do not weep

We are like the Hound
to the "Laws of Claw and Fang"* we are bound

We are a pack
Not a herd
Upon the weak we feed
Not upon those whom might attack.

So to call us a sheep
Is really quite absurd
For at least a sheep
Is safe in its loving herd
A reference to call of the wild.  I do not wish to receive any issue with this.  But it's a great book. Worth a read.

We are always getting pressured on how we should perceive things. What if everyone who acts the same,  dresses the same, talks the same,  and are the same,  were actually crazy.  What if those of us who are outcast and want to avoid their games are the ones who are sane. What if we are "crazy" simply because we are more in touch and aware of the world around us.? What if it's because we are more accepting?

Lost Hope
Auss May 2014
I have no more reason
To commit self treason

No more need for suicide
No need to split my skin so Very wide

I am broken
My insides breaking
My heart is tearing

You said you needed me
But I guess I wasn't who I ought to be.

You turned your back
Severed our friendship in one single hack

I loved you
You were my sister

You were my friend
But I forgot that I don't mean jack in the very end

I hope you are happy
And I'll wish you along
Because we both know I am too far gone

I'll stay here and wait
I'll wait till I fall
And all that is left is a memory
A memory on which you may never call

Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
I don't even want to know why.

Just leave so I can burn myself
So I can destroy myself
So I can recreate myself

Then I'll wear a fake smile
Around you awhile
Your new friends I'll beguile
Thinking through the ****** trial
That feeling when you had a strand of hope only to watch it literally get stomped out in your face while you know that there was absolutely nothing you could do to prevent it. That feeling of being powerless about the one thing you care for.
