Desire
I want to explore
I want to be lost
I want to run
To Feel my heart, beat,
Pounding in my chest
To live without regret
To be happy
That is what I desire

Will you Call
If our worlds do collide
Somewhere deep in the sky
My angel dressed in Saint Laurent
Will you call me
Will you call me

When our inner thoughts collide
Somewhere deep within the night
A fragile girl dressed all in white
Will call your name
And say her vows
Adapted from a "Mute-the-kid" song
"Call"

Us
Us
Our love is a silent story
No words, no letters
Just you and I.
Mar 17 · 79
Buried
Rain will come as the seasons change.
Butterflies dance watching my memories fade.
Know I chase not your love, but the thought of you
A heart given away, broken and fixed with glue.
Left alone to collect dust
The shattered fragments of us.
Healing is a distant land
And I remain buried in the sand

Love is War
If love is war, I'm still fighting.
If love is war, I'm still trying.
And if love is war I might be dying
Broken inside, but I won't give up the fight
A piece from my song
To a very special girl
I know I'm losing the fight
But I'm still gonna try
If Love is war
I'm losing the Battle
To win the war

To Forget
Forgotten, broken, mourned.
Remembered, fixed, celebrated.
Some stay forgotten,
Some always on mind.
Some forgotten to be remembered,
And I remembered to be forgotten.

Growth
Wisdom Osikwemhe Aug 2022
When I was little
The world felt so big,
And I so small.
But now, I am older
The world feels small
And I even smaller

We all do
Wisdom Osikwemhe Aug 2022
I have come to realize
That everyone
Good or bad
Rich or poor
Young or old
lives in a hell of their own

Mausuom
Wisdom Osikwemhe Mar 2022
I can't remember her well
Even though, once upon a time I loved her.
I can't remember her face,
Even though I fell in love with her smile.
I still remember the purple lip gloss,
The transparent elegance,
And those rosey fingers.
Her silhouette obscures my sight
But my ears receives silence.
I can never forget her,
But I don't remember her well.
Feb 2022 · 97
In Cloud
Wisdom Osikwemhe Feb 2022
Her lashes flutter
Those diamond eyes revealed
As she wakes up from slumber
Looking vivid yet unreal
With divine perfection,
Our hands are locked
Skin on skin,
A dance of bliss
I will get carried away,
For my head resides in the clouds.

Lie
Wisdom Osikwemhe Jan 2022
Lie
You are a lie
Though beautiful,
A beautiful lie is still a lie
Jan 2022 · 79
What are you made of
Wisdom Osikwemhe Jan 2022
What are you made of,
What makes you smile.
A shadow in your past,
An evenings delight.
Recalled like the wind
Effervescence of the mind.
What makes you cry,
What makes you hurt.
How do you fall,
How deep does it cut.
The thorns stays,
Beauty unaltered by the blood on the tip.
A crown of sorrow,
Royalty of pain.
What are you made of?
Asked the midnight gale
Jan 2022 · 94
I'm tired
Wisdom Osikwemhe Jan 2022
Sometimes, I wish I could fall asleep
And never wake up.
Sometimes, I wish I was sick
At least I'd have a reason to feel like I do.
Sometimes, I wish I would drown when I swim,
I wish I was dead.
But I'm not,
I haven't drowned.
I'm still healthy.
I'm still awake.
I'm still here.
Surviving with the unnecessary pain
Still faking a smile.
Jan 2022 · 179
RIP
Wisdom Osikwemhe Jan 2022
RIP
"You thought I was dead,
But I still live upstairs.
Inside your heart I will be,
Still alive
Still alive!"
Rip to all we've lost in 2021

My Hope
Wisdom Osikwemhe Nov 2021
I never showed faith
But that doesn't mean I never hoped
I never once prayed
But that doesn't mean I didn't believe
You never saw me succeed
But that doesn't mean I didn't try
So don't bury me with names
You clearly don't know my pain
I've lived, loved and been hurt
Failed when others passed
I'm surviving
And I'm still trying to live

The Cold
Wisdom Osikwemhe Aug 2021
Shivering deep inside,
the cold seeps through.
Losing concentration,
as asphyxia calls my name.
The water holds me tight,
Drawing me deep into the night.
That beautiful darkness,
peaceful and quiet.
Though cold,
it feels like home.
losing myself,
to you.

Cycle
Wisdom Osikwemhe Aug 2021
And so it starts again,
The deviation of my hopes.
From light to darkness.
They take, take and take.
With no remorse.
They cause me pain,
And act ignorant to their actions.
Like flies chasing dirt,
They follow without reason.
Never letting me have what I chose
Or even giving me the chance to.
To find happiness, peace
And love
Suffocating me in the cruel cycle that is pain.
Aug 2021 · 66
Healing
Wisdom Osikwemhe Aug 2021
Take you dagger
And stab my heart
When the pain is gone
Stab me again.
Again and again and again.
When you are done
Clean the wounds,
And erase the memories.
But the scars would always tell the story.
How you hurt me,
And how time can never heal scars.
From a broken heart.

10 Feets To You
Wisdom Osikwemhe Jun 2021
Fragile like glass,
Tender as rain .
Beautiful like sunset,
Graceful as the Swan.
Her smile can heal the sick,
If the diseased is me.
But there's distance between us,
At least 10 feets.
A mountain to climb,
Up here in my mind.
My wings are damp,
And my leg are tired.
I cannot fly,
Neither can I run.
So would you help me up,
Close the distance as you walk.
Stretch your hand and take my heart.

The Stranger
Wisdom Osikwemhe Jun 2021
Her eyes like stars staring through my soul,
Her lips painted purple, moves with angelic grace.
Her fingers gifts created by the gods,
A figure from my dreams.
Her voice though unheard by me,
I know it's the definition of beauty
What is her name?
Will I ever know
Will I be courageous enough,
To ask.
Or will I live with this regret for the rest of my life
Will her fragile and delicate frame
Hunt my dream
I do not know,
I really do want to talk
But I can't.
Cause she'll be the one that got away
Even before she came,
Close to me.
Jun 2021 · 74
Pain
Wisdom Osikwemhe Jun 2021
Is this what pain feels like
Is it a new emotion.
I know I have felt it before,
I know I have lost before.
But why does this feels different.
I know her not,
But why does her fading silhouette
Burn a hole through my heart.
Is this what pain feels like,
Is this a new emotion?
If it is, I never want to feel this way again.
Jun 2021 · 72
The truth untold
Wisdom Osikwemhe Jun 2021
You, love and I  is a lie
For if I were you, I wouldn't love me.
I wouldn't kiss me, the way you do
I wouldn't hold me, for fear of betrayal.
I would leave me because I know that I would leave you
I would love another man the same way I love another girl.
But I'm not you
And you don't know me, as well as you think you do
That is why,
You foolishly love me, with all your heart
And I betray you in the blink of an eye.
Showing you the truth,
That love is truly a lie
Jun 2021 · 199
You
Wisdom Osikwemhe Jun 2021
You
Every emotion I feel,
I feel it for you.
Every word I write,
I write it for you.
Though the 'you' changes,
Every once in a while,
The emotions are still the same.
A repeating cycle
That will never ever end.
That is you
Jun 2021 · 724
March 19
Wisdom Osikwemhe Jun 2021
I died.
I faded.
Like a dream, forgotten after wake.
I lost myself and you lost me too
Non-existent to you
To myself a ghost
I died.
But still I live,
Waiting to be revived.
Ignorant to the changes around me
A jaded memory, A forgotten name
I died.
Inside and out.
Jun 2021 · 59
What I need
Wisdom Osikwemhe Jun 2021
I need pain
I need joy
I need something
I don't care which
To make my empty life meaningful.
I need love, again
Even if it kills me.
I don't want to feel alone, empty.
I need something
Or someone
I just don't know, yet,
If it's you.
Feb 2021 · 98
Ache
Wisdom Osikwemhe Feb 2021
My chest is heavy
My eyes wet
I had to let go
But I wish you did it first
We couldn't be together
Couldn't even be friends
Our worlds were different
Even though we're both on earth
So I had to let go
Just wish you didn't care
Jan 2021 · 128
Happy New Year
Wisdom Osikwemhe Jan 2021
I forgot that it's a new year
New beginnings and fresh start,
I'm a sinner and you're an angel
That I need to change and you don't
Everything I say is a lie because you say so
I shouldn't be happy because I'm not you
I should only celebrate when you want to.
If so then, Happy New Year
As you drown yourself in misery
Jan 2021 · 109
My Heart breaker
Wisdom Osikwemhe Jan 2021
I remember it like yesterday
Her wonderful smile
That hid her lies
The way she hugged me
Her arms wrapped around me
The way her lips felt on mine
The way she made my heart dance
She was beautiful
She was my all
An angel with a soft spot
For pitiful men like me
Dec 2020 · 79
Your "Good"
Wisdom Osikwemhe Dec 2020
I am not good
I know
But what is your definition of good
Is it being like you
Is it defined by the ability to watch others suffer
Is it defined by your greed
Does my lacked of hatred soil your good
Does it make "it" bad?
If so I'd rather stay a bad monster,
Than a "good" human.
Dec 2020 · 96
Core
Wisdom Osikwemhe Dec 2020
The sky is red
The ground is wet
Chaos is loose
And order is caged.
But in the middle of it all
I see you.
In the middle of the world
I see your destruction
Your pain and shame
Moving all around
Oct 2020 · 60
Her
Wisdom Osikwemhe Oct 2020
Her
She was beautiful
She was kind
She was  loving
Always on my mind.
She was a gift, always full of life
I wanted to stay, forever with her
Now she is ugly,
Cruel and wicked
She is always on my mind,
But not in a good way
She's a burden
That steals even the smallest life
She scares me
So I want to leave her
Yet I want to fix her
She is still irreplaceable
No matter how horrible she gets
If you understand what I'm talking about, leave a comment
Oct 2020 · 56
Chatting with you
Wisdom Osikwemhe Oct 2020
I wait patiently
Yet I wait anxiously
Wondering
If the message was ever sent.
So I send another
And patiently do I wait
But the only reply I get, is nothing
So I send another and another and another.
Making silly excuses for you
But deep down I know that what I am doing is a waste.
Yet I still keep on sending messages
With the vain hope of a vain reply
Oct 2020 · 45
Shivering
Wisdom Osikwemhe Oct 2020
Winters rain heavy and cold
Terra form my liver and soul
Winters rain so heavy above
I warm myself with love from you
Though wind blows wet and cold
Freezes a man and turns to stone
Though cold wind blows at night
Love from you is the greatest light
Sep 2020 · 45
A Drink
Wisdom Osikwemhe Sep 2020
You make me sad
And you make me mad
You fill my life with sorrow
And you take away all my goals
So I need an escape
I need a drink
But I am not old enough
They say, to drink
So I'll just drown myself
In the sorrow that I have
Sep 2020 · 36
What I'm feeling
Wisdom Osikwemhe Sep 2020
I am sad
I do not know why
I have lost
But I do not know what
Am I mourning it's death
The death of the respect I had for you
Is that what I lost
Or is it love
The love that never existed
That has been lost
Sep 2020 · 36
Lies of truth
Wisdom Osikwemhe Sep 2020
You tell my friends that I am cruel
You say that I betrayed you
You say that you loved me
You say that you cared
But we both know the truth
That you covered with lies
Still it doesn't change the fact
That I am the villain in everyone's eyes
That I am trash
And you are gold
That I am evil
And you, good.
Sep 2020 · 36
First Love
Wisdom Osikwemhe Sep 2020
She held my hand
Her touch was warm
She looked into my eyes
And hers were deep
I felt lost
My throat dry
Words ran away
I was paralyzed
When I finally gained courage
To say the words
She left me
Before I had reached her
Sep 2020 · 108
Ruthless
Wisdom Osikwemhe Sep 2020
You ask me my goals
So you can steal my dreams
You tell me to listen
As you crush my soul
You make me wait
For the day I die,
The day I break.
To prove to me
That I am weak and soft,
Alone forever
In this cruel world
Sep 2020 · 32
Leave me
Wisdom Osikwemhe Sep 2020
Can you not do this
Can you not look into my eyes
Can you not see me
Can you not see the good hiding in my darkness
Can you not love me
Can you not save me
Sep 2020 · 40
Objectified
Wisdom Osikwemhe Sep 2020
I am a sword
I am your sword
Use me to your satisfaction
Use me till I'm blunt
Throw me when you're done
When I can cut no more
Sep 2020 · 43
Demons
Wisdom Osikwemhe Sep 2020
How will I survive
How will I live
I'm surrounded by demons
That turn my life to hell
They tell me do this
They tell me do that
They tell me I'm good
And they tell me I'm bad
How can I live
When I can't trust a thing
Sep 2020 · 379
See through
Wisdom Osikwemhe Sep 2020
To be ignored is a gift
To be heard is a sin
For if your words cause death
Would it not be better to be a ghost
Neither seen nor heard
Never giving joy
And never causing grief
Forever transparent
Sep 2020 · 39
Life
Wisdom Osikwemhe Sep 2020
You claim to be righteous
Yet you mock my pain
You claim to be good
Yet you let me starve
You call me evil
Yet you do what I do
You are disgusted by my joy
And wonder why I make you suffer
We are both humans
Who will do anything to survive
Aug 2020 · 32
Mirage
Wisdom Osikwemhe Aug 2020
As I sit on the desert sand
Under the canopy of a scorching sun
Counting the seconds,
Waiting for my last breath.
Regrets sweep my mind
The disaster I walked into
And would most likely die in.
The end draws near,
But wait
In the distance, I see something
Is it a lake or trees a hammock maybe
Nay it is all.
My suffering ends.
I run to my paradise
Eating as much as I can
Till my eyes go blank and I see no more
Aug 2020 · 40
Illusion
Wisdom Osikwemhe Aug 2020
I look at my reflection and ask
What is real
And what is fake.
What is good,
And what is bad.
Who are you
And who am I.
Am I you
Or are you me
Are we the same
Or are we different
Am I real
Or are you real
Who is the reflection
Me or you
Aug 2020 · 34
Mirror
Wisdom Osikwemhe Aug 2020
Her cold voice
And warm breath,
Whispers sweet nothings
Into my ears.
Those hard keys
And gentle pitch
The melodies of egress,
She sings to my fears.
What shall I find
In an angels eyes,
The fear of the devil
I see in myself.

— The End —
