Strum me like a string with the coarse tune of your laughter,
embrace me like the quill that you use to write with a paper.
as I lie awake; reminiscing the times we've had together,
a ticking time slowly pacing from one way to another;
a kiss from the wind; leaving one's heart lost in constant blunder.

Balak - A Bisaya Poem.
(NOT A BISAYA POEM, BUT I USUALLY WRITE IN VERNACULAR)
Guss Dec 2020
The bitter cold snapping at my minds door,
As I sat there thinking on the floor about things I did before,
The rain I’m sure was coming in for a week or more,
And I had scraped out my insides to the bone of my core,

When I,
When I close my eyes,
I see you singing softly baby,
Take me back to paradise.
When I,
When I close my eyes,
I see you singin to me
and I’m back in paradise.

I scared away the fear,
But always waiting for the time,
Where I would see you callin’,
And we could go back to our crimes.
It’s only with you that I wanna die,
Like Bonnie and Clyde,
I will stay by your side.

When I,
When I close my eyes
I see you singing softly baby,
Take me back to paradise.
When I,
When I close my eyes,
I see you singin’ to me
and I’m back in paradise

I scared away the demon
That was chasing me all this time,
But when I hear you voice babe,
You’re killin’ me,  
And it should be a crime,
But baby you can **** me
you can **** me any time,
I’m just sittin’ here on the ground wasting all my time.

When I,
When I close my eyes,
I see you singing softly baby,
Take me back to paradise.
When I,
When I close my eyes,
I see you singin to me
and I’m back in paradise

She needs me to give her back her wings,
She didn’t have the heart to tell me,
I hade taken all these things.
My only play is to give her what she needs
And hope that when I close my eyes,
Shes what I see and I’m back in paradise.

Are you blind? Can you not see?
I do this **** without a thought
I do this **** so effort
Less - ly
Like an old man
sittin in his rockin chair
Sippin on some green - tea
Like I'm speedin down
The highway just free to be - me

Can you not see? Writings like an ***** and it functions like a heart - beat
Boom boom - strap your ***** in and find a comfy *** - seat
Boom boom - my writings all be formin when I'm walkin down the **** street
Boom boom -  Ima be lol'in as my fans line up - boom boom - for a meet n greet.

Do you finally - see?
Its like a mean grean hulkish transformation Ima straight beast.
I be smashing competition like
Michael Jordan - its a straight feast.
Hulk smash! Its a fine treat.
I be swishing all my buckets as they
All be kissin my - feet

It all comes without a thought and
Comes very natural- ly
like a virus - coursing through my veins like a musical dis - sease
Ima sneeze... Achoo!
And pass it onto others - as much as I - please. ***** freeze!
Ima infect the world with my
Musical. - ******

Now that I've laid my piece
While sippin on some green tea
While ridin so free
I hope you finally - see -
Ima straight beast.
Peace!

😂
I've heard alot of people say I write with a style that sounds like it could be music. So I took that idea and ran with it. This was more of a just-for-fun type of thing more than anything. I like it at least. I read it as rap 😁.

Work the bread and the butter to the bone,
Let it penetrate your pores,
Become your very blood,
A part of your soul,
Emerge a hero of your own.

Because if you’re not then who?
Who,
Who,
Who, who will be your own?

A true part of your heart.

Work the bread and butter to the bone,
Be the magic you speak of so,
Have it become your flesh and core,
The vital part of your all,
Emerge victorious on your own.

Because if you’re not then who?
Who,
Who,
Who, who will be your own but you,
Who will be the fuel but you,
Who will have the power but you?

Don’t lie to the single being who is a must for you to have a life,
                                                                          
for you to have it all,
Emerge a…
Emerge vic..
Emerge a…
Emerge vic…

You know thyself too well to lie.

There I was, Standing there
On the empty corner street
I gave you love, But you went and through it all away

I've had enough, I'm out of luck
Ever since the day I heard you leave
I gave you trust, But you said it wasn't good enough for me

Now I know, You're not the one for me
But here I am standing at the corner of Franklin Ave
I won't take long, I don;t have too much to say

I gave you love, I gave you trust
So, Why'd you have to go and throw it all away
It's over now, But please don't walk away

I'm out of luck, I gave you love
Was it not good enough, I gave you trust
Where'd you draw the line

It's over now, but baby you could stay
Just please don't walk away

It's a Poem song
It's a song about a Poem
Caught in a groove
Don't know where it's going

It's just a Riff thing
It's still a little bit iffy
Needs more working on
Won't take but a jiffy

And the Chorus, well it's just a Chorus
The Chorus is so the tune doesn't bore us
Choruses do that, 's what a Chorus is made for
Chorus's job is to try and be an ear worm

Maybe just a couplet as a bridge
Signal and manoeuvre into a switch...

So a song about a Poem
With a life of its own
Needs more work I think
One more verse to keep going

Can't tell sometimes
What words will do
They float out of nowhere
To be something new

And the Chorus, well it's just a Chorus
The Chorus is so the song doesn't bore us
Choruses do that, 's what a Chorus is made for
Chorus's job is to take the applause

But the last Chorus, can sometimes be more for us
It can make a few changes, stop being so cautious
Choruses can do that, when they can't do anymore
Choruses can hang... and ask for an Encore!

Choruses can hang... and ask for an Encore!

Yes... Chorus's job is to ask for an Encore!

We’re all a little lost until we lose ourselves
And we’re a little nervous.
Until we have something to be nervous about.

And we’re all a little numb.
Too afraid to feel.
And we’re all a little nervous.
Until we have something to be nervous about.

Up goes the shield.
And on spins the wheel
And spins goes the wheel.

This is something we have to feel
So up goes my shield

Self destructive, the way I always lived
can't take care of myself
I need somebody else
I'm not proud of the things I've done
I get drunk and I get stuck on having fun
its a curse and I'm sure I do it all
to avoid all the noise and how much I fall

but you believe in me
and its not at all hard to see
you are something else
you help me build a better version of myself
baby you made me, baby you saved me
I appreciate you, and all the little things you make sure I do
have no idea what you saw in me
you help me see who I'm meant to be
so I'll roll the dice, put my drink on ice
pretend I'm not a wreck
I get myself together, I'm not out of the game yet

Here we are it's pouring rain
I wait with baited breath
And fight the urge to choreograph
my delightful dance of death
hesitant to play again
because I always lose
but I cannot say no to you
so tell me, what's the use?

but you believe in me
and its not at all hard to see
you are something else
you help me build a better version of myself
baby you made me, baby you saved me
I appreciate you, and all the little things you make sure I do
have no idea what you saw in me
you help me see who I'm meant to be
so I'll roll the dice, put my drink on ice
pretend I'm not a wreck
I get myself together, I'm not out of the game yet

tell me, are you a gamblin' man?
or prudent with your bets
do you crown the middle ground
repay all your debts
maybe we could take the risk
50/50 go all in
because all I've ever wanted
is to someday, finally win

but you believe in me
and its not at all hard to see
you are something else
you help me build a better version of myself
baby you made me, baby you saved me
I appreciate you, and all the little things you make sure I do
have no idea what you saw in me
you help me see who I'm meant to be
so I'll roll the dice, put my drink on ice
pretend I'm not a wreck
I get myself together, I'm not out of the game yet

There's something wrong, there's something wrong
Yeah you're there for me
I'm a mess at my very best
Retrace steps yeah retrace steps yeah
I tag along, I tag along
Because you're fair to me
Its ok to make mistakes
But this one I can't seem to shake
I know
You're growing up
And I know
You've done more than enough
And I feel
Something I never have
Its just that 1%
amplified so ******* bad

Am I out of line?
I guess we'll see

So let us dance hand in hand
Knife stickin through my spine
You're the one yeah the only one
Who can pull it out in time
A sword in stone
I cry alone
Can you cradle me?
I'm not the same, I'm not the same
I let you bury me
I know
You're growing up
And I know
Youve done more than enough
And I feel
Something I never have
Its just that 1% amplified so ******* bad

Am I out of line?
I guess we'll see

So take a breath
You're quite a catch
I can't begin to be
The end it all the be it all
But maybe you can see
Why I chose
To stay so closed
So prove it all to me
And I'll do the same
Maybe I'm to blame
I'll stick around to see

I know
You're growing up
And I know
Youve done more than enough
And I feel
Something I never have
Its just that 1%
amplified so ******* bad

Am I out of line?
I guess we'll see
