It seems the harder I try
the less I prevail ,You know well
(Well )that water runs deep , an I’m knee deep in it
Only wanted to soak my feet
seems I’m in over the limit
It’s automatically assumed that you’d know what to do , if life handed you lemons
Implication
Nothing is ever easy an I tend to complicate things . That’s life
It's been awhile myself
seems I only write
to look busy at work
I have forgotten how
to communicate
always looking for
le mot juste
to tell myself
it's okay.

It might have been a week since last
What do I know
I don't think about when, where or who

You think so highly of yourself as I look at you
with tease in my eyes
                 but oh baby
it's just a disguise
You are not the one
Not for me

                                                    But easy

In the moment the only thing I see
is you pleasuring me
When I'm done
I leave you
like a piece of toy
left filled with joy
                                                    But easy
It's just for a time
you got the prime
When i find
something new  
You have been chewed

I leave you wanting more
Letting you know I'm out to explore

                    sorry boo
I'm not for you
oh baby
It has been a while,
since I last saw your smile.
But I know
that the smile that you give,
is one of the only reasons
why I live.
Some peoples' smiles really mean a lot...

It's been awhile since you've crossed my mind
Since I felt those memories and our lives entwined
Our film playing silently in the back
While our lives continue swiftly, steadily on track

And it's been awhile since I've heard your voice
That obnoxious laugh and those playful jokes
Your music that you so passionately create
Those songs you wrote, beautifully defined fate

And that smile of yours that gleamed like the sun
Paired with deep blue eyes like the raging rivers that run
Those dark brown locks that curled ever so slightly around
And for a moment everything ceases to make a sound

It's been awhile since I walked down our path
Since I entered those classrooms, since we were those outcasts
I haven't listened to our songs or read through our texts
I haven't talked about you or gone to such depths

As I remember more then anything they said
I knew you like non of them ever would
Define toxic, manipulative and wrong
But even if it's so, you're still my favourite song

And I loved you my dear, with a sincerest heart
But from the very beginning it was destine to fall apart
I miss you, and everything that we were
Even if now that period of contentment is only a b l u r

We talked for awhile, only moments ago
And it was as if for a second, time would slow
We talked about your girlfriend and for that I'm truly happy
I'm glad you found somebody perfect for you I say
As I attempt not to be too sappy

No matter the past, present and future
I'm glad you were a key part of my life
You gave me the world even if it were just a night
As in a world that is dark you were my light
And for that I'm eternally grateful

It's been awhile
Even so
I still love you all the same



~
Out of the entire world I live in
You were truly one of the only people I ever loved
And for that all I have to say is
Thank you, for being such an important person in my life

What is this ....

This feeling I cant explain


This feeling I get

Every time I feel something worth while for anything and it gets taken away


Why ?


I don't know ..
I don't ******* know


Its seems I am Destin  to mess everything up

Everything worth something





And I thought you might be different


That you might be the one thing I was capable of feeling something for without ******* it up


.....


Maybe I was wrong

Maybe you are not different or maybe I am just the same


The same guy that ruins every thing one way or another


What is this ?

This feeling I get every time I **** something up ?


Hahahaha
Haha

If I had to describe it .

I would say nothing

But a nothing that causes pain in everything that I do


Because no matter what I do

My mind always runs back to you


And then this nothingness returns


Cause I ****** up .....

with a few drinks
a couple friends
loud music
and
laughing so hard
it hurts to breathe
it's easy to feel like
everything is right
in life
I've thought for so long
that people who drink their
feelings away had it all wrong
but it turns out I wasn't the one
who was right
I like forgetting about
life for awhile
I like being able to be me
with no restrictions
or concern for anyone's feelings
or even having to worry
about anyone else
All I need is myself

She walked away, and I shouted back, "I'm not asking for forever!"
She stops. She turns in the aisle and sadly smiles.
"That's why I'm leaving." My own smile drops.
And that's the end of that endeavour. Because time never really stops.
Forever is all some people want, and they won't settle for just a while.
Even if a while is all that I've got.

I was in your dreams--
laying in your bed
I whispered sweet nothings,
thinking things were as they seemed
Let my memory linger in your head,
and remove from mine trivial things,
but only for awhile.

Professed your love unto me
and saturated with longing
Never had I felt such good grace,
nor managed to feel so free.
Burdens that broke me, no longer bogging
me down, while I gazed upon your angelic face,
but only for awhile.

Gladly gave you heart and soul
with no dread of death or doubt.
You'd gladly give me a home
where I'd pay not a toll
other than pouring my love out
unto you through praise and poems,
but only for awhile.

Then came the day
you cast me aside
to let me burn and rot
Shrugged and went your way
while I seethed inside,
and shrugged at the fire I was fraught,
but only for awhile.

I was stuck beneath yesterday
crush, Crushed, CRUSHING
Two years would smother my whole life?
Struck by flak--caught in the fray,
and I felt the knife pushing
in between the ribs with strife,
but only for awhile.

Bad blood and broken bones
mended
and made me all the stronger.
I suffered something fierce, alone,
but it ended,
and it wouldn't last any longer.
It was only for awhile.

— The End —
