Heavy darkness all around,
In my footsteps, on the ground,
My path is lined by threatening trees,
Pale moonlight on my knees.

Push my muscles,
Closer to home,
Faster and faster,
Into nights catacomb.

The hour strikes three,
Quiet cold air creeps,
This is when I escape;
While the world sleeps.
An old one I wrote about going for a jog, I hate exercise but growing up I didn't have very many ways to get away from my dysfunctional home life so sometimes I would run or walk a short ways away and close my eyes and pretend I was somewhere else.

We are similar in so many ways
We love and hate pain
We love someone who pushes us away
Someone, someday, somehow, someway
I hate other’s pain, but love wallowing in my own. Real head scratcher
It's all new to me, this feeling of jealousy.
Why am I so insecure, when you keep telling me that you are mine and I am yours.
You give no reason for me to feel this way it's nothing you do or say.
I'm scared that it will push you away. As my insecurities eat me away.
Promise me you will stay.
It's hard as I don't see what you see in me, as you are perfect and well I am just me.
Keep going until a loss becomes a win.
Keep going for failure is not a sin
So don't you ever give up on anything
You never know what the next bend will bring.

Keep going, keep doing what you do
The bruises and scars you can't undo.
The world isn't interested in your downfalls
Some situations are just temporary walls.

Keep going until you can go no more
Success is a vault without a secret code
You never know when your day will come,
So keep going until you make it home.

Keep going until you fall asleep
keep going even if you'll have to creep.
Keep going even if you are shot at,
Beyond your efforts is where success is at.

Keep going till you die...just go!

A sign, it reads “Push”.
I pull, cause I’m a rebel.
Great, now I’m stuck here.

So much energy
Plenty to do
I can do anything
Except what I need to

My thoughts are a whirlwind
I want to escape
I can't drink liquor
When I'm working late

I can watch movies
Play games on my phone
Reorganize my desk
Sing a long song

When it comes to it
I'm just depressed
Life's going nowhere
Memories repressed

Keep pushing on
Take a deep breath
Practice mindfulness
Repair whats left

There is only today
What I don't get done
Won't go away

Grab up that energy
Make a big push
Write a little poem

I push my body to its limits,
Then push my mind.

There are no limits.
s Oct 2017
my mind is a war zone, my body’s shackled to depression
get to know me if you want to but use your discretion
i’ll push you far away and then i’ll beg for your attention-
i’ll convince us both it’s love though you’re merely a projection.

Anxiety rolls away in my tummy,
My heart flutters,
My head screams,
It's nonsense,
Nothing and everything all at once.
There's no reason for it,
No understanding,
But there it is,
Needling me,
Torturing me,
And there isn't anything I can do,
But to ride it out,
Smile it away,
"Fake it until you make it."
But will I?
Can I?
There is no other option,
So I just do it,
And hope it fades quickly,
God help me.
These moments,
They just suck.
But at least I'm alive,
That thought always helps me through it.

The tiredness behind my eyes
Keeps me awake
I push through

Asleep inside
I shut down
I go dark

No thoughts
No dreams
No breath
No desires
I hush

Its cold
But I'm awake
I work

I gave in
To keep up
Stayed back
To push forward
I push through
