Ron Dec 2019
I think I've run out of things to say.
I'm staring out into pouring rain
Wishing, hoping, it will take the pain
Away, away, away.

More Time
Ron Sep 2019
I want to spend more time with you.
Doesn't matter how.
I could spend it all with you.
Doesn't matter where
I could spend it anywhere.
I want to spend more time with you.

From The Start
Ron Jan 2019
Your smile lights the room.
Your laughter fills my heart.
With eyes so warm and loving,
It was love right from the start.

Ron Oct 2018
I've been struggling lately
Fighting with myself
A war inside my own head
I'm in need of help.

The End
Ron Aug 2018
Please listen close
I'm only gone for the moment
But I'll be close
I'm in your heart
Be stoic
I know you're strong
So show it
Because death is not the end
It is only the beginning
And though I might be gone
My spirit lives on
In my friends
And in my family

Getting Lost
Ron Aug 2018
You've captured my attention
I'm slowly getting lost
Let's make our own adventure
Sit alone and share our thoughts
Enjoying all the laughter
And the chance to see you smile

Self Aware
Ron Jul 2018
Always up
Late at night
Smoke alone
Feel alright
Thoughts wander
To the great beyond
Into oblivion
Searching for a brighter Sun
Light another one
Chase away the dark
Searching for another spark
I need a little hope
I've been lacking that
Stuck on contemplating past
Choices, I've been forced to ask
Is this worth it?
Will it pass?
Am I destined or am I ******?
May 2018 · 309
Your Eyes
Ron May 2018
I'm hooked
I'll admit it
The way your eyes light up the room
It makes everything else diminish
I can't look away
I'm captivated

Every Night
Ron May 2018
Always at night
When the thoughts flood my head
Keeping me up
Thinking bad things instead
I try to force them all out
Though they sneak their way in
Night after night
Again and again
May 2018 · 296
Sorting Time
Ron May 2018
Wanna sit on beach somewhere
Cold drink, without a care
Not a thought in my mind
About stress or self doubt
Just alone with some time
Enough to clear my head out
Gotta sort through the mess
Sort the trash from the treasure

First Sight
Ron Apr 2018
I remember blue skies and laying there
Staring at each others faces
You were the most beautiful thing I had ever seen
And I knew.
Apr 2018 · 186
Drift Away
Ron Apr 2018
I want to drift away
To a place unknown
A place far from here
A place far from home

Your Voice
Ron Mar 2018
I can still hear your voice
Even though you've gone away
It brings a tear to my eye
Feels like only yesterday

Night After Night
Ron Feb 2018
Night after night
I stare blankly at the screen
Night after night
Maybe it's all just a dream?
Night after night
Coming apart at the seams
Night after night
Don't know what to believe
Night after night
I've been hunting down dreams
Night after night
I've been thinking of things
Night after night
I still cannot sleep.

The Voice
Ron Feb 2018
Locked away
Deep in my mind
There is a voice
It whispers

Lazy Sunday
Ron Nov 2017
My lazy Sunday
I spent it all in my bed
It was well worth it
Aug 2017 · 347
Ron Aug 2017
Trapped in my mind
No escape in sight
Controlled by these thoughts
Another sleepless night
Aug 2017 · 701
Ron Aug 2017
I was standing there
Gazing into your blue eyes
When I first realized
Jun 2017 · 247
Ron Jun 2017
I'm scared.
Scared of life
Scared of death
Scared of things that don't make sense
Like love and loss and how the world ends
Scared to die
Scared to live
Scared to enjoy my life and loosen my grip
On love and loss and how the world ends.

Two Sides
Ron May 2017
I can see it.
It's ahead of me
The future seems so bright
I can still feel it
It's deep inside of me
The darkness lurks inside
Apr 2017 · 863
Ron Apr 2017
We all have them.
Yet for some reason some of us hold back
Like we don't have the motivation
Lacking the drive to push ourselves
It's a plague and it's affected our whole nation
It's something that needs to be fixed
Our hearts need healing
And our souls need freeing
It's only a matter of time
So I'll plead with you now
Never hold yourself back
Never tell yourself that you're nothing
Because I guarantee
That you are something to someone
You mean more than you think
Don't give up on your dreams
Because your dream could be the most important of all
It could save you
It could save the world
You never know.
Dreams are important
They should be treated like gold.
Wrote this to a motivational rap beat. So I don't know how well it will translate without a beat.

Can't Sleep
Ron Mar 2017
Please let me sleep.
I shut my eyes.
I count the sheep.
But still I lay here.
And still I think.
1. 2. 3. 4. Sheep.
Keep on counting.
The thoughts are hounding.
It drives me crazy.
So I stay awake.
Mar 2017 · 242
Ron Mar 2017
Do you see?
There is more to this
I know there is
How can I see?
I have not found out
But I will

Wake Up
Ron Feb 2017
Empty faces
Plastic smiles
Shallow minds
Follow thoughtless
Through the crowd
Feb 2017 · 332
Ron Feb 2017
There is a spark
Deep inside
Hidden away
And if it's found
You will shine
Feb 2017 · 466
Ron Feb 2017
You broke my heart
I have to admit
I should have seen it from the start
All the signs were there
But for some reason I do not care
My love stays strong
My heart can bare
And at the end of time
I'll meet you there
Feb 2017 · 547
Ron Feb 2017
Always counting the hours
Until I have to be awake
Never able to ease my mind
To let me fall asleep in time
So my sleep becomes restless
My days become bleak
Everything is running together
My world is turning grey
All I need is a good nights sleep

Hidden Identity
Ron Feb 2017
We hide behind our masks
Never showing our true intentions
Drinking from our golden flasks
Or smoking to ease the tension
Feb 2017 · 282
Ron Feb 2017
Can you feel it?
The memory fading
Lost with time and age
Slowly degrading
You try to hold on
With whatever you can
A letter, a song
Every word you've taken in
Memories fade
Share them while you can
Jan 2017 · 233
Ron Jan 2017
A constant war inside my head
It rages on, I see no end.
It keeps me awake
It drives me mad
I hate this war inside my head...
Jan 2017 · 254
Ron Jan 2017
Where am I going?
When will I die?
These are the questions
I ask myself all the time
What is my purpose?
When should I decide?
So many questions
No answers yet in sight

Last Conversation
Ron Dec 2016
If I could have one last conversation with you,
I would tell you how much I love you
I would show you how much you are missed
We'd laugh at terrible jokes
And we'd reminisce
If I could have one last conversation with you...
Dec 2016 · 447
You're Gone
Ron Dec 2016
You're gone
And you left us all here
You're gone
And there is nothing I can do

Fallen Soldier
Ron Nov 2016
A fallen soldier
All in the name of freedom
The ultimate price
Gone, but never forgotten
Dry your teary eyes
Let the memory live on
Forever in time
Carried in our hearts and souls
A heroic death
Nov 2016 · 359
Ron Nov 2016
I'm looking for a map
One that can show me the way
To a place I've never been, but always wanted to go
Because I'm having trouble on my own
Seems like I've been lost for ages
Walking the same worn path, asking myself questions
What is my purpose?
Why am I here?
Is there a reason why my life has to be this way?
All of the questions
But nobody has the answers
Nov 2016 · 638
Killing Me
Ron Nov 2016
Your smell lingers on my sheets and in my dreams
And it's killing me
I crave your touch, laugh, and smile
And the way we would shut up and kiss for a while
It's killing me
To know that things could have been different
If I never had to leave you that August morning
And it killed me
To just drive away, leave it all behind
With tears in my eyes I stayed stoic
Nov 2016 · 452
Ron Nov 2016
I want you
I want you like you wanted me
But the sad truth is
It will never be
Because you're with him
And I just can't compete

My Pedestal
Ron Nov 2016
It's strange
How much an object can take you away
From the stress and the pain
When I put that board down
It's like everything fades away
All that is left is the wind in my face
And the feeling in my chest
Like a weight has been lifted
A veil pulled from my eyes
On my board I feel confident
Like I'm on top of the world
It's a liberating feeling and it never grows old
Nov 2016 · 378
Ron Nov 2016
Late nights
Sitting behind brightly lit screens
Always searching
Never finding the answers
You would try to sleep
But the thoughts wouldn't cease
What is your purpose?
Why are you here?
There are so many questions
So you search and you search
Never looking within
Always looking around

Ron Oct 2016
Life is a labyrinth
And we are all wandering
Searching for ourselves
Sep 2016 · 312
Ron Sep 2016
Where am I going?
Is it somewhere I've been?
Will I know when I get there?
Or am I at the end?
Sep 2016 · 988
Ron Sep 2016
It's pressing on my chest
Like a weight that can't be lifted
I hate the way it feels
As if the world is tilted
I climb and climb
But fall back down
To my place
Here on the ground
I've lost my wings
I've lost my hope
I need a reason to climb back up

I'm riding the waves
Enjoying the sensations

Pain is inevitable
It cannot be avoided
It can only be eased
Some drink it away
Others may smoke
We all handle pain differently
Who am I to judge?
Sep 2016 · 748
Ron Sep 2016
Just a kiss
I knew it was meant to be
Because the last time that we laughed, I could see it in your eyes
It was there
Just a glimpse
And I saw what those beautiful eyes could hide
Something deep
Something pure
Something that goes beyond the mortal soul
You may not know it yet
But believe me, it's there
Hidden behind eyes, a shade of bright blue
It's something inside
Something that shines
It's what makes the cold, rainy days fade away too
It's called love
And I'm feeling it for you

Follow Your Bliss
Ron May 2016
Late nights with friends
Drinking, smoking, and hoping for no end
It's the times like this
Video games, beer pong, and hoping you don't miss
The days and nights
Road trips, laughter, and conversation
Making memories
Be it friends, family, or strangers
Embrace life to the fullest
Make the most of it
And follow your bliss.

Take A Moment
Ron May 2016
Take a moment and think
At all of the beautiful scenes
To all of the wonderful sounds
Take a deep breath and let it all in
Life is just an adventure, let it begin
May 2016 · 969
Ron May 2016
Take another puff
Float up to the sky
All I need is another hit
Just one more
And I'll be high
High above the worry
High above the pain
Floating comfortably in peace
Feeling nothing but at ease
This pleasant feeling
I must be dreaming
Not a worry on my mind
Only laughter and red eyes
Maybe I'll be creative?
Write a poem or two
Maybe I'll be lazy
Eat some cereal, then some pie
What is this feeling
I haven't felt in quite some time
I feel it bubbling from inside
Is it hunger?
Is it hate?
It's something different
Not from what I ate
I know this feeling
I've figured it out
No more stress
No more worry
No more anxiety
Yes I know this feeling
I'm feeling happy
May 2016 · 325
Only Love
Ron May 2016
I begin this journey
Your hand in mine
Not a fear
Not a care
It's just you and me
Discovering life
Living our dreams
Not a fear
Not a care
Only love
Mar 2016 · 338
Ron Mar 2016
Why do we become the people
Other people idolize?
Reminded by commitments
Surrounded by a sea of lies
Heaven or hell
I don't know where I'm going, so
Pray for me and hope that I
Succeed in life
And afterlife
Time to make a sacrifice
Agreement for my soul
Never thought twice
