upon the stars (part 1.)
Sarah Lin Oct 2016
i looked up at the stars
and i felt you next to me
far from the sound of cars
a place where only we could be
it's a land for us
i made it in a dream
so walk with me
until the dusk
for the shadows overwhelm me
and i get covered in dust
but your hands are always there
and serve as constant care
i never knew i'd feel like this
until i met you
so walk with me
until the day
when i feel safe
and can walk on my own
for every star we see tonight
stands for all those restless nights
i spent awake in fear of bliss
in fear of feeling any of this
but now that i feel it true
i know it's real and just for you
so walk with me
until we see
the end so clear
we cannot fear

Sorrow waited sorrow won
Sorrow found me when I was young
Sorrow came sorrow stayed
Sorrow took my mind and played

Joy tried but joy died
Joy fled from my side
Joy swam but joy drowned
Joy was buried underground

Fear owns a sword of lies
The sword has taken many lives
Fear wears a crown of disguise
Making us side with the lies

My heart ran a race and lost
I can’t remember what it cost
My heart tried to care
But in return got a tear

Emotions are a raging sea
They mask my eyes of all I see
Emotions cause my legs to bend
Never lending a helping hand

Love was beaten in her sleep
Interrupting her count of sheep
Love was torn from my heart
Now we live far apart

Arrogance took my pride
And spent it overnight
Pride gave into arrogance
Thinking he just wanted to dance

Love was given a second chance
But also thought it just a dance
Love was beaten one more time
Left on the street alone to die

My mind imprisoned in a cage
Only emitting a hostile rage
My skull will crack and break
Soothing my mind from its ache

Voices echo in my ears
Whispers of a nameless fear
Their words are luring me on
Towards their pit of a ****** dawn

Guilt abused my mind to dust
Making marks and scars and rust
Guilt took my pride and joy
And played with it like a toy

not a very good poem
Sarah Lin Sep 2016
I cannot fathom
how extremely loathsome
I must be to look at

I'm a burden you say
getting heavier each day
but some would disagree

I've spent my nights
crying on the roof
hiding from your sight
afraid of your next move

There came a day
when I could take no more
I packed my bags
and walked out the door

I don't regret a thing
except for loving you
but I threw away my ring
it sank to the ocean floor

Your mind is a puzzle
each piece is deformed
some are missing
lost in the past

I run with the deer
I fly with the birds
and if you ever draw near
I'll cut you with my words

a lighter path
Sarah Lin Sep 2016
I’ve walked the darkest path before
And many sorrows it bore
But in the dark my mine was free
And once again I could clearly see

My mind was tangled in a vine of lies
My heart was bound to an endless prize
And all along your voice was steady
Calling me home to find you ready

My thoughts were caught in a daze
My heart stopped through every faze
But once I saw your beautiful face
My body was rid of this awful place

My skin is scarred with wounds now healed
My mind is marred with thoughts now sealed
Your words are a light in the dark days
Your smile gives off brilliant rays

And in the end hope does stay
You just have to find it in the right way
Time will heal your scars
And one day they’ll shine like stars

— The End —
