Out of truth,
You started wildfires across my heart.
The noxious fumes choke me.
I'm blinded,
But dance in the flames as we persist.
Austin Reed Aug 2020
Give me undying love
My selfishness wants your time
Listen to my words;
They’re more important than what you’re doing

Fill my void
Be something I can’t conflict
Welcome me like I do my self-indulgent thoughts
Chaotic world Apr 2020
Some days I feel like a sailor lost at sea
Sailing the endless ocean not knowing
if I will ever find my destination.
Sometimes it’s like I’m surrounded by a cloud of fog, blinded to the point where I can no longer
tell where I came from or where to go next.
Some days I want to see a light from the distance shining through that fog
Calling my name
Showing me where I need to be.
I wanted you to be my light house,
Clearing the fog around me
And letting me know that my journey ended with you. But I felt so lost when I was with you
Maybe because the lighthouse in you,
never wanted to turn the lights on for me

You ain’t no good judge of me 
You’re way too much in love with me 
You’re biased eyes they mislead you
You don’t see what’s in front of you 

Don’t put me higher than I am 
**** the angel you think I am 
Adjust your vision to see reality 
Don’t be fooled by my beauty 

I am evil, a ruthless beast 
Don’t forgive me, don’t let me feast 
On you weakness and your care 
I’ll devour it and steal your air

There's no way
I want to stop it
But I ******* can't
It eats at me

She doesn't deserve to feel
as if every burden
is her doing
its mine

If I did things right
If I was better at this
I live in this constant fear
so trapped in my own afflictions

My lack of control
why does it have to be this way
it hurts like nothing else

Except for this one moment
I refuse to allow occupy my mind

Maybe if I listened
Shut my ******* mouth
did more, maybe then
she'll understand

my true love to her
my protective intentions
but I feel as if I'm so far
from these things I want to be

for you
I'm sorry.
This is my mind as I go down the road and think of the ways I've hurt her and dream of the ways to make things better

brisk nights hang low
baubles linger effortlessly

shimmering below streets.

Could find it,
               looking deeper towards

the light, then I collapsed within
              the darkness...

It was so bright, so lovely onyx
                petals lacerating me

like i was opening the door to a better place.

My blood was the nurture to open wounds
            that needed to show the bone,

            before I could heal from the  fall.

You never knew me, till you glued every
                scar after opening it to realise

that.. beauty was beneath every scar.

The luminosity blinded, headed my growth,
          for to grow,
I needed to be blind to see

                                  my purpose..

I'm tired, constantly,
physically, mentally,
in all regards, a blob
of exhaustion repeating
day after day the same
words, moving the
same way, lacking
the common thrill of living,
'I'm tired' we say, and fail
to notice the vast sea left

Baby I think we need to breathe
So much love lost
I'm smiling cause it's impossible to grieve
It's impossible to leave
I'm addicted to you darling
But your too blinded to see

When did it start?
My heart beats rhymed with yours,
Should I know you were leaving,
Long have I fessed to you,
These bottled words,

When did you notice?
Did I act differently?
Deserving, am I? For your worries.
How well do you know of me?
Give up, would I? On trying,
Should I know.

I met you.
On one fateful day? No, just a day.
You saw me, when I didn’t,
You held onto me,
When I was trying,
To let go,
Of me.

In truth, if I had known,
I deserved you,
Long would I see, your ascend,
As the sun rises,
A new light, over the mountains,
Paved a gold path,
For you along with my words,
And a tree, to carry beyond.

Oh, pathetic soul,
What could hurt me so bad,
That I won’t open my eyes,
Even the slightest,
Even to try,
To see you,
In your warmth of a smile,
To see me,
Caressed, by your halo.

Now, I bid you adieu,
Silently, without any say,
With the bottle, still in my hands,
With guilt and a thought,
What happened, happens for a reason,
Another mystery, a misery,
Which will forever mute me,
And blind me,
From seeing another,
Light as accepting as yours.
We've been through so much that sometimes we tend to focus more on things that suffocates us than those who cared for us. Don't let this blind you, look at them, truly see, what they've done for you, don't take them for granted, before it's too late.
