Unknown power.
Nas Feb 2014
Isn't it scary
how powerful you are?
Your ability to
smile with
a broken heart,
scarred past,
and a shredded soul.

Yet, you have
the audacity to
look down
and say
you're not
strong enough.

Do You?
Nas Feb 2014
Do you miss me,
like I miss you?
Will you find someone else
to love?
Or will you look back
and smile,
say it was true?

Do you love me,
like I love you?
The way I'd give up
the world
in return of our
that were so blue.

Do you want me,
like I want you?
The way I smile
at the thought
of us,
being alone,
lying under the moon.

Do you remember me,
like I remember you?
The way I wake up
everyday with surprise
and tears of joy thinking
you'd be here, stupid me,
shedding worthless tears.

Do you hate this distance.
like I do?
The way I cry
day and night,
grasping onto my
last inch of hope before
I lose sanity,
and become cruel.

Do you think about us,
like I do?
The way I look at
other boys and
they were you..

Misleaded Misleaders.
Nas Feb 2014
Untold secrets,
unknown saviors.
Unheld barriers,
unseen failures;
Mysterious behaviors.

Revolutionary creators,
merciless dictators.
Heartless players,
hypocritical traitors;
Misleaded misleaders.

you kiss her,

you hold her

Call it grief,
call it anguish,
call it misery,
call it torment.
But tell me what it is,
at least.

What is it called?
What do you call that feeling when,
you feel like your existence doesn't,
matter to anyone,

What do you call that feeling when,
you feel like striving for that one person,
will lead you to nothing,
but heartbreak?

What do you call that feeling when,
you feel so fragile that,
it seems like everyone you get,
attached to,
will shatter you,
after all..?

What do you call that feeling when,
you feel like you're losing,
the light of hope,
and every breath you take,
is worthless and plagued with misery?

What do you call that feeling,
that you get when you,
are smiling with joy,
but crying from withing?

The World.
Nas Sep 2013
Hi there ,Alice.

This world is a nuisance.
The people are ruthless.
The rulers are merciless.
The animals are wild.
The weather is *******.

The sun will burn you.
The moon will scar you.
The angels will guide you.
The devil will destroy you.

The good are non-existent.
The bad are overloaded.
The looks will deceive you.
The wealth will mislead you.

Love will blind you.
Satan will tempt you.
Distance will break you,
and time will end you.

What it Takes.
Nas Aug 2013
It takes a smile to hide the pain,
it takes a laugh to shrug it all away.

It takes a shadow to hide the light,
it takes a flame to eliminate your might.

It takes a thought to change your mood,
it takes a memory to make you cruel.

It takes a heart to feel the sorrow,
it takes a pain to make your heart hollow.

It takes a breath to keep you alive,
it takes a second to take your breath away,
and let you die.

You are my 'Peace Of Mind'.
Nas Aug 2013
A cloud of smoke,
leaves through my parted lips.
I close my eyes with the urge,
to caress your body,
with my fingertips.

Another sharp bitter puff,
taken in by my lungs.
I'm just like "Baby,
come here, we are young."

A sharp bitter liquid,
is poured down in my throat.
In remembrance of the ring you bought me,
but now its gone.
I say "No, no! Don't leave me!"
You glance back,
In a blink of an eye,
you leave me.

someone is shaking me by my shoulders.
Sweat is trickling down my forehead.

"Baby, don't scream,
it was just a dream,
our little princess is sleeping next door,
you're going to wake her up."

And then you wrap your arms around me,
you hold me tight,
throughout the night.
We're sleeping fine,
with tranquilled minds.

is a traitor overtime.
is a sweet beautiful lie.
will chew you up and spit you out.
will ***** you up and let you down.
will make you laugh and make you cry.
will leave you there and let you die.
In the memory of my Aunt who passed away today. You will always remain in our hearts.

The Truth About The World.
Nas Aug 2013
The truth is that the Cupid's arrow,
only struck Adam & Eve.
That's how love,
became a deadly disease.

The truth is that compassion doesn't exist.
We've always been deceived.
Tears, lies, betrayal, and blood curling screams.

The truth  is that after death,
life will become a tear-soaked cloth of regrets.
The things you could've done,
and the things you decided to neglect.

The truth is that we're in a competition.
The competition of who's good,
who's bad,
and who's not even worth this emulation.

The truth is that the world,
has run out of enlightenment.
The river of simplicity has run dry,
and the world just wishes for refinement.

The truth is that we're all alone,
at the end of the day.
Filled with grief,
we're standing by the never-ending bay.

Someone will care.
Nas Aug 2013
Tomorrow will be better,
someone will care.
A beautiful future,
so **** enchanting.
Filled with love,
filled with smiles.
Someone will hold you,
and walk with you for miles.
The laughter within your talks,
the happiness within you voice.
After so much, here you are.
You've finally rejoiced.

"This happiness we share,
will last forever,"
you swear.
And you say,
"Through these smiles and cries,
I'll be here,
'cause darling I care."

What she couldn't tell him..
Nas Aug 2013
The less expected, the better it is.
He left but he forgot something that was his.
A mystery it was, what he forgot,
A dark stormy heart; with grief it was distraught.

She loved him a lot, but couldn't show him that.
She had scars on her wrists, but couldn't show him that.
She hated seeing him with someone else, but couldn't tell him that.
She wanted to be his one & only, but couldn't tell him that.
She slowly died more & more, day by day,
While he laughed & smiled, he walked away....

My possession
Nas Aug 2013
Messy hair,
Baggy clothes.
My appearance may be bizarre,
But my thinking glows.

Smudged mascara,
Faded lipstick.
Trying to keep up my tiara,
But I’m a little pessimistic.

Five-inch heels,
Bright red dress.
My attitude is my appeal,
My knowledge is what’ll get you possessed.

Not saying that I’m perfect,
Not saying that I’m the best.
But just be careful,
My success has gotten you oppressed.

— The End —
