My Own Inward Turmoil

   Posted by: T-bird Tags: ,

 (I am not posting this to gain anyone’s approval nor do I want to hear any kind of feedback that my belief is false.  I will respect your beliefs if you will respect mine.)

I see the lies as they spread like fire:
That we are all the same,
That we have conformed to rules
Which were never really true.
Our book of rules is called a book of lies
Which has been “lost in translation.”
And many feel all we wish to do
Is shove our beliefs down your throat. 

A few people flaunt the name
As though it was a parade balloon,
And they have tried to change the minds
Of those who are callous to their belief.
They go as hypocrites and ignore the law
Which was written down centuries ago.
And people think because we bear the same name
We are all the same deep inside,
And we are full of lies. 

Yet tell me this:
If faith has made me stronger,
If prayer has saved my life,
If I have felt the hand of God,
If I know someone who has changed,
If jubilation comes with my love,
If I have witnessed to prophesy,
How Christianity can be false.

Excerpt: FREEFALLING by Darlenne Susan Girard

   Posted by: darlenne

look at my life
it’s going nowhere
each step I take
just takes me down
the roads I walk
all lead the same way
each turn I make
just turns me around

Facade

   Posted by: Allustriel

I guess the Facade I put up is a good one,

No one notices that what they see, isn’t really me.

They see the smile, but not the pain,

The pain and confusion fills me,

Yet it’s never seen.

 

People don’t see the other side of me,

I don’t let them see it.

I don’t want them to see it.

I want them to stay happy.

So, I hide behind the smiles and the laughter,

You will never know that it’s not real.

 

I will continue to hide,

I will continue to lie.

As long as the people around me are happy,

Then I am ‘happy.’

Forever,

I shall hide behind this Facade.

A Street that Circles

   Posted by: fg351401

A serpent street in constant dusk

I walk its tar with calloused feet

It’s lined with glass and needled husk

Poisoned mouth where rattles meet

The people change but scenes cannot

A middle maze for suffering men

They’ll always be a vacant lot

Sign the lease with red ink pen

A loon with spoons had points to make

“Don’t look back to jagged past

Or dress it up in fake mistake

The present makes the future last”

A flaring girl with hair that’s pink

Like bubble gum in summer’s heat

Sang a song that made me think

“Letting go is such a treat”

I asked where to that she might skip

The street went only round and round

She said with every jumping trip

She found it clear to hear God’s sound

I smirked at her in sweet regret

And said God left here long ago

She said the street found hope a threat

It closed it ears to God’s bestow

She danced along in luscious leap

A grime lined loner chimed away

“The devil whispers in my sleep

Confusion grasps and makes me sway”

“He reminds me every night

This cursed place that swallows souls

Cannot be left without a fight

A fight that left my heart in holes”

He died within his passing breath

He cashed out with a smile

His way out had been his death

I liked his timeless style

“Looks like he can finally rest”

The girl crooned from a lawn

The loon with spoons than said it best

“There goes another pawn”

Then a man called from his porch

“It’s not so bad in circled truth

Feelings fade with whiskies torch

There’s fireworks for troubled youth”

“There’s pools when fevers get too high

Learn some comfort in our crime

Don’t let others make their pry

In their constant mindless chime”

The girl made shout across the lane

“You’re depraved you fickle fiend

Hold your tongue if your insane

I feel the evil where you leaned”

I walked away with thoughts that swim

Not sure to die or try and live

Or trod in place without a whim

I need a place I can arrive

Mirror to Nowhere (Lyrical Poem)

   Posted by: T-bird Tags: ,

Every day I always look
Into my mirror to see my face.
Blank eyes stare back
And I turn away.
The one I wish to be
Is a face I’ll never see.
Who is it in the mirror?
This imposter of me?

It’s like a mirror to nowhere,
A face without a name.
A creation of this world,
Not my own reality.
I’d rather look in the mirror
And not see a thing at all
Because it’s a mirror to nowhere,
And no one can see.

And as I watch o’er this mirror
I feel the tears begin to form.
A stray rolls down my cheek
And I turn away.
That face so hideous
Does not belong to me.
Who is in this body?!
The controller of me?

It’s like a mirror to nowhere,
A face without a name.
A creation of this world,
Not my own reality.
I’d rather look in the mirror
And not see a thing at all
Because it’s a mirror to nowhere,
And no one can see.

Perhaps if this mirror is shattered,
Maybe then I’d finally see
That this mirror to nowhere
Can lead to somewhere indeed.
But for now…

It’s like a mirror to nowhere,
A face without a name.
A creation of this world,
Not my own reality.
I’d rather look in the mirror
And not see a thing at all
Because it’s a mirror to nowhere,
Just a mirror to nowhere.
It’s a mirror to nowhere,
And no one can see.

Meet Myself in Time (Lyrical Poem)

   Posted by: T-bird Tags: ,

I’m standing up
To stand out.
I’m reaching up
To reach out.

But that is now,
Not then.
That is here,
Not there.

Feared for life,
Feared for you,
Feared for love,
Feared for me.

Looking back upon myself,
Seeing through different eyes,
I wish I could talk to me.
I wish I could meet myself in time.

A new life
A new beginning.
An old life
An old beginning.

But that is my wish
Not reality.
That is my fantasy,
Not truth.

Feared for life,
Feared for you,
Feared for love,
Feared for me.

Looking back upon myself
Seeing through different eyes,
I wish I could talk to me.
I wish I could meet myself in time.

Loving my life,
Loving you,
Loving this love,
Loving me.

Looking forward upon myself,
Seeing through these eyes,
I wish I could talk to me.
I wish I could meet myself in time.

Falling

   Posted by: Kaylex Tags:

Could you tell me just what you’re doing?
Ignoring me from far away?
When every pretty word we ever said
Was the opposite in every way?
You claim to have been losing me
But I think you really just lost sight
It is I who has remained the same
And you who’s fallen from our friendship’s light.
I refuse to point my finger, though
I won’t shout and put you to blame,
It’s just I hurt inside from everything
Even the sound of your name.
Why isn’t it okay for me to do something
When you do the same yourself?
Why should I force myself to be what I’m not,
A cardboard copy from the shelf?
I am done living for you,
If you wish to return I won’t be there.
I won’t keep wishing and waiting
I will turn my back and walk away while you stare.

The Shadow

   Posted by: Emi

As a girl, I dreamed I was a goddess,

Clothed in white and gold.

Who danced among the midnight clouds,

A sight so clear and bold.

 

But when I tripped and fell back down,

I realized who I am,

From god to girl is such a drop,

I feared it was my end.

 

Life with you began so sweetly,

Until you changed your heart,

But now looking back upon that time,

It was me who fell apart.

 

I never thought I’d live this life,

But now it’s all I own.

As a girl I dreamed of guys and friends,

Now I dream alone.

 

My only friends in times of hate,

Is the blood I cry,

And the presence of the darkness,

In the shade I hide.

 

I once thought the world could never,

Make me hurt this much.

But when I scratch, cut, burn or bite,

I feel the shadow’s touch.

I Lost Everything

   Posted by: T-bird Tags:

I told him everything.
I gave him everything.
I knew everything.
Then I lost everything.

He was my dearest friend.
He was the one I confided in.
He was the one who knew everything.
And I lost everything.

I thought I knew him.
I thought he knew me.
I thought we knew eachother.
Still, I lost everything.

He was my friend,
But he was his friend,
And he was my enemy.
So I lost everything.

Maybe I was wrong.
Maybe he was right.
Maybe he lost everything.
Maybe I lost nothing.

Love

   Posted by: Kaylex Tags:

A flash of light
Across the scales and eyes
Bats away the darkness
Of demise
It saves the soul
And heals the wounds of time
Love conquering the shadow
Spread over like an ocean
But not cold as water is
Rather warm and welcoming…
Something one must earn
Yet equally give
