I know that I took a switch blade and cut a hole in the fabric of your heart

I know that I have no right to ask for the forgiveness to patch it up

I know that you no longer recognise me and that I no longer recognise myself

I know that I took our Heaven and turned it into Hell

I know that when you touch me, in your mind you see me touching him

I know that I will pay dearly for this sin
mistakes cause damage

It REALLY Is...
An AMAZING Thing... !!!

To See How QUICK...
Some People SWITCH...
When PRESSURE Liks’... !!!

And NOT The Type of Pressure...
That Brings... BAD Weather... !!!

I Mean The Type...
That Affects Mankind... !!!
And Women TOO...
When They Switch Their Moods... !!!

In Times Like THESE...
Where A... VIRAL DISEASE...
Has... LOCKED DOWN Streets... !?!

It’s AMAZING To See...
How The LOSS of MONEY...

Has AFFECTED Heads...
Who CLAIM To Care Less...
About MONEY CHESTS And Bank Interest...

Because They SWITCH...
Like... IGNORANT Kids... !!!

When It Comes To CASH...
That They CAN’T Grab...
To Fulfil Their Plans...
To Do This And That...

It’s... Really SAD...
To See People Get MAD...
And... Start To Act...
Like An IGNORANT *****...
Who Is PRONE To SNITCH... !!!

Sometimes I DO WISH...
I Could Turn OFF The Switch...
That Inspires Scripts of Lyrics Like THIS... !!!

But The PROBLEM Is...
That It’s The Type of Gift...
That’s... HARD To Resist... !!!!!

When I Start To Think...
And Suddenly LINK...
My Thoughts With Ink...
Or Of Course... Typing...

Because of The SWITCH...
To TECHNOLOGICAL Things...
That Now EXIST Like This Virus Is... !!!

You See This Poetic Piece...
Has Been Inspired...
By The Things I’ve Seen...
Since This NEW DISEASE...

Has Started Putting OUT Fires...
of... Lives And Desires...

And BROKEN Dreams...
As Well As LIMITED Means...
of People Who NEED...
To Really Stay HEALTHY... !!!

Instead of Having To FEAR...
of Now Being TOO NEAR...

To... People Who...
Have Got THIS FLU... !!!

A SWITCH That In TRUTH...
Is Just NOT COOL... !!!
Because It’s Now REMOVED...

How We... TREAT...
The People We’d GREET...

BEFORE This Disease...
SWITCHED Societies...

To Be... DISTANCED Beings...
Whose Switch Is Leaning...
To... SWIFTLY DEMEANING...

... Historical Teachings...

Like Communicating...
WITHOUT All This... SPACING...
That’s Clearly FRUSTRATING...
A... LOT ot of Locations... !!!

Where They’ve HAD TO SWITCH...
Because They Were TOO QUICK...
To... RE-OPEN Things...

So Their Switch Now STINGS... !!!
And May Now Be Bringing...
A SWITCH In... THINKING...
As SECOND Waves...
Start To RAISE The STAKES...
ALL OVER The Place... !!!

Which Would Be A SHAME... !!!

Even Those Who CREATE...
Are SWITCHING In Ways...
That AREN’T So Great... !!!

Because They’re Trying To Play...
The Game In... NEW WAYS...

When Basically Things...
Will Remain The SAME... !!!

SWITCHING Up Names...
And SWITCHING Up Tracks...

Instead of Sticking To FACTS...
And NOT Trying To Act...
As If They’ve SWITCHED...
How It Is That They THINK... ?!?

I’m NOT Switching My Vibe...
From... REALITY Rhymes... !!!

Because... If The Cap FITS...
You KNOW You NEED To WEAR It... !!!

Because You CAN’T SWITCH Hit...
Like... BASEBALL Swings... !!!

Or Like Black Lives...
That Only Matter When We DIE... ?!?

By The Hands of A Guy...
Whose Skin Tone Is WHITE...
And Has POLICEMEN Ties... ?!?

That’s A SWITCH That MY MIND...
REALLY DOES NOT LIKE... !!!

What About Black Rhymes... ???
That DON’T Energise Vibes of Packing NINES...
And Running IGNORANT Lines About Gang Fights...
That SWITCH Like Tribes of The AFRICAN Type... !!!!!!!

That... DESTROY Lives...
And The Chance To UNITE...

I Mean... WHY OH WHY... ?!?

Do We SWITCH And Then DENY...
The TRUTH To Feed... LIES... !?!

In... Chatter That Matters...
About As Much As These SLAPPERS....
Or These... Young Gun Clappers... !!!!!!

Who SHOULD...
Choose To SWITCH Targets...
And STOP Being So HEARTLESS... !!!

And MAYBE Then Black Lives...
And The Minds of Whites...
Might SWITCH From Fights...
of The... RACIST Type... !!!

And Then Guys Like I...
WOULDN'T Have To Write...

About HYPOCRISY...
Within Our Human Breed...

Because We’d Learn To FORGIVE...
And NOT Have To Live...
Like Some Kind of SNITCH...

Who Is FAR TOO QUICK...
When PROBLEMS Persist...

To Start To TWITCH...

And Then SUDDENLY.....

........ “ SWITCH “.......
Well, one things fa' sure now, with all that this year of 2020 has brought, one of the biggest changes it's brought, has been the switching of peoples' priorities, and sadly, in many case, their attitudes towards each other !

It's

switch

I don't really like this one, but it was how I felt that day so I want to keep it up as a tribute to that I guess
Jim Kirk Feb 23
Elizabeth And Josie

Her weeping tears flow over her eyes,

Only because her love surpassed her hold,
I felt passionate love myself, but you are mere lies,

DIVINE LOVE!,, You betrayed our hearts, the fiendish lies you told,,
 

My beloved, see flesh and blood, truth not illusions,

I do know the truth, and all my passion cries for her, another,

She a picture, not Love, to be loved, YOU!  created this conclusion,

She cried our love IS divine, we DO complete the other.
 
I love her more

Shorter rewriting of earlier poem of mine.

I have finally found it
a single switch to cure all my ailments.
Led by old heartaches whispering new phrases
and ancient fears with different faces.
Wary looks and tired eyes
aching bones and empty rooms
that rend my hopeless heart
and scar it afresh.

"You're not suited for each other"
and "you will fall out of love"
echoes down these dark halls
like an ominous sea
rearing back and baring teeth
before it swallows me whole.
And though I promise to walk away
should it ever be too much to bear,
I know. I know. I know.

I know it in my heart
that I will break with every step that carries me away.

And I am not sure what it is
that I feel anymore
because lost, hopeless, substandard
are the only words I can make out
among the deep ruts in my mind.
Even when I know
that once the words lovely, splendid and beautiful
were written on my skin.

Though I have no way of knowing,
I agonise, I rant and rave.
Could I do it? Would I be brave enough?
To shut down every thing I feel?
So, shortly after I confessed my feelings to the girl I liked, the entire household was fighting over the relationship. And my best friend gave me a long talk on how the two of us weren't suited for each other, even when we'd just started sneaking around and writing letters like Rosalind and Juliet. The next morning I woke up in an awful daze and spewed poetry.

if the roles were reversed
if the shoe was on the other foot
would you have let me hurt you
the way you did?

would it be emotionless
would the pain be non existent
would everything be the same
would it just be without me

would you hug yourself?
would you scream at the pain I caused you?
would you be too hurt, to even see my name?
would you lose yourself in a mess you couldn't control?

would you hope that the pain wouldn't stay?
would you hope maybe you could be okay again?
would you hope you could look me in the eye?
would you hope to be able to trust,like you once did?

would you hope one day you could trust again?
would you hope one day you were able to feel again?
would you hope one day you would love
the way I loved you?

no.

you wouldn't smile the way you did when you met me
you wouldnt feel how you did when I numbed all the pain.

Is love the fuel of our hearts?
Because maybe we should switch fuel.
Because our hearts are polluted.
Having some difficulties with leaving bad people.
Raven Mar 2019
Vanity stole me
Vanity corrupted me
Vanity tranquilized me
Vanity disrupted me

These lines have me thinking wrong thoughts, thoughts that are of uncanny nature and vain thoughts of selfishness and unhealthy erotica.
Vanity took all the sanity away from the head, and left me alone, not even therapy can stabilize me, I rebuild my soul.
I'm out of my mind, and I'm yellin' out, vanity
...
Like a drug itself, these lines are like decaf and vanity is my addictive curse.
Addiction not to the drug, but to the feeling of such an intense self love, it eats you up inside, you take the substance to escape the sinful feeling.
Logic, and proportion, all dead.
Losing myself,
Get out of my head.
Get out of my thoughts.
Nothing to say ...

The dark smiles back
Because I am its friend,
Though silent I breathe
I am a deadly hand,
And just like the sea
That sits next to the land,
The weight I can make
Can crush your soul like sand,
But I'm no demon
So don't fear me as such,
Just heed my warnings
Don't get bold with your touch,
Cause you will just know
When I start to smile,
What you'd call normal
Will soon become wild.
●○
The light smiles back
Because I know what's planned,
Yes, soundly I sing
I am just doing grand,
And just like a wing
The might want to expand,
I may have the flight
To fly to the dreamland,
But I'm no angel
So don't think me as such,
Hear what I'm saying
And it won't be too much,
Cause you will just know
When I start my singing,
The present you know
Will meet awakening
