i can't feel my head
but my heart is oh so
heavy.

unstable, unable

even if i can't get rid of the weight
i hope my head can help my heart carry.
A little house
On the hill
White fence
With a garden
People decorating inside
High school sweethearts
Laughing, smiling, kissing
They must be a couple
Husband and wife?
Big wedding
DJ, photographer, friends and family
Moving into their new house
The woman
Has a big belly
Twins?
A girl and a boy
Such blessings
Dogs?
Two
Soon to be parents as well
Watching the man
Old now
Hold his wife's hand
As she takes her last breath
To say...
She was living a dream
Oh, how he was confused
Only to find out
She had left him a note
On their counter in the little house
He unfold the note
All of a sudden
The sun came out
The weather didn't call for this
It looked like....
A dream
And in that very moment
He understood

FILLED WITH DARKNESS
IT’S SAD BUT MY MIND IS ENDLESS
I WANT TO ESCAPE
BUT THERE IS NO WAY OUT
NO ONE IS AROUND
YET I DECIDE TO SHOUT
BUT THE QUESTION IS
IS IT REALLY DARKNESS??
OR IS IT MY OWN VERSION OF REALITY??
OR IS IT JUST THE THOUGHTS CAUSED FROM ANXIETY
EITHER WAY I CAN’T ESCAPE MY MIND
I AM LOST UNTIL I CAN GAIN SOME LIGHT
I CAN ONLY HOPE THAT IT’S HAPPINESS
BUT UNTIL THEN I WILL CONTINUE TO FIGHT
FOR I AM LOST
AND I WILL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES NO MATTER THE CAUSE
I DON’T WANT TO BE ALONE ANYMORE
I DON’T WANT TO FEEL THIS PAIN
I DON’T WANT TO GO THROUGH MY WHOLE LIFE LIKE THIS
PLEASE
I WANT IT TO END
I DON’T WANT TO BE LOST
Emotionally unstable just words from my heart

Intrusive image invading unstable imagination

Bursting bright bringing bouncing bobbling bits of bubbling illusions into brain

A memory of magical messy minutes moseying and mingling
A menagerie of magnificent moments miraculously marked in my mischievous mind

Coming into chaotic corners of cornea calmly
Cruising without cares
Memory

I am the lonely boy who loves a lonely girl
When I’m blue, she’s the one I run to
You’d think we go together like two + two
But in fact, we make five and here’s why
—————————————————
We’re both equally traumatised
With a battlefield going strong in our minds
It tires her out all the time
Whereas I use drugs as a coping vice
We’re both fairly afraid to get close
Because past lovers still have a hold
Not in the sense we keep a torch lit
Just scarred and bruised from the flames within
We’re both so anxious about timing
She thinks she’s too much, I think I’m not enough
—————————————————
These are the cards we’re dealt with
But having her by my side is a blessing
Originally this was called “Lonely Girl” part two to my second poem “Lonely Boy” but renamed it after the Jack Nicholson film

INSECURE GENERATION

The generation of today is living an insecure life.
Life full of comparison
Possession of things without thinking of what may happen
A generation trying to prove others that they are the best

A generation where young and energetic men are trying to prove themselves by destroying others.
A generation where big and high class daddies destroy the young with material things
A confused generation showing their happiness and wealth through photography
A confused generation  hard to love people from a broken family
         Everything is invalid!

We suffer insecurities we didn't create
Many are becoming insecure
Completely unstable
Trying to compare themselves with our today's models and celebrities of our century
Probably hiding behind makeup
Cause probably without the makeup!
They,themselves are a hot mess!
They pay a ransom to look great!
If beauty is in the eyes of the beholder!
Then,why suffer so much trying to look spectacular?
Why spend to your last coin attracting a whole lot of people?
They say beauty comes from within
Our generation need to stand courageously
And fight against the enemy of self insecurity!

I'm twisted inside.
My emotions are unstable;
And just like my emotions, my choices are also unstable.
It keeps going back and forth.
I'm twisted inside;
And don't know what to do.
It is very confusing.

At the beginning the love was sweet...
We could check up
on each other every
single time of the day.
The love was real and
I enjoyed everything

I truly loved her yet she. claimed my love wasn't
enough, I showed her
real love coz she also
showed me the love
I've always been
wanting.

She was so supportive
when I needed her, we
enjoyed every beautiful
moments I had with her
To be she was beautiful
and her beauty was so much different it wasn't the way she dressed

But the way she stood for me everywhen i messed

He beauty

wasn't in her thin skin

But the times she forgave me everywhen i sin

Her beauty

Wasn't in one night stand

But the times I ******* and she still gave me a hand.

I didn't see her worth after
spoting  the outer
beauty of other campus
girls. She warned me but
I didn't gave her time

She cried the whole day and night and I didn't gave her
the attention.

I jumped from one
relationship to another but
she kept loving me
i didn't see her love and didn't gave her a chance
to explain herself

I lost her just because of
my lust for the women
beauty.

This entire house feels unstable
My life is shaking
As are my hands
Nothing is certain
Nothing is safe
Why... why doesn’t home ever feel safe?
