Mistakes A Minority

I tell myself it’s alright,
I say it’s okay.
These troubles will leave me,
Some day in some way.

I beg for forgiveness,
My tears remain.
But I know inside,
It’ll happen again.

What’s the point of remorse,
Or the need for a fight.
If I can’t even bother,
To escape this plight.

I’ve made mistakes,
I’ve done so many wrongs.
It might never matter again,
While you sing this song.

They listen to me,
Put me down,
Then Raise my hand,
Without a frown.

“You’re sick”, they say,
“You’ve gone wrong again.”
It’s just so confusing,
And the worst of pain.

These voices inside me,
They never cease.
I’ve made terrible mistakes,
I don’t want to believe.

I deserve no forgiveness,
I deserve no pity.
I’m a pathetic fool,
Locked out of my city.

I loved too much,
I hated none.
The cobwebs gathered,
From the sins I have done.

I was always loyal,
I never looked away.
They were just distractions,
While walking my way.

You deserve better,
It’s obvious and true.
I don’t need a solution,
I have all the clues.

These mountains of guilt,
Cry rivers of shame.
For there is no one else,
But myself to blame.

You don’t know my secrets,
But I wish you did.
What’s love if not expressed,
While my sins are well hid.

I’m tired of lying,
My mind longs for a priest.
I need you with me,
A smile at least.

Yes, this is the truth.
It’s a beautiful lie.
You’ve always been perfect,
But never was I.

These voices shall exist,
As long as my sins persist.
An endless pit,
Which I aimed to lit,
And failed everyday,
Terribly, I must say.

I hope I find solace.
I hope I can say,
That these troubles will leave me.
Some day. Some way.

Broken Hope

I wish someone would understand,
What it feels like to lose.
It’s like all I’ve been doing,
Has earned me nothing but a noose.

But that’s something we learn,
Over a period of time.
We can’t change the fact,
That life will never rhyme.

To the old, and to the new,
May our hearts remain constant as our lives continue.

For I am lonely, but not you.
‘Tis the way life works,
Out of the blue.

I hope you understand,
That I meant no harm.
The world may finally win,
But I just can’t keep calm.

We had hopes,
And we had dreams.
But now I’m empty a vessel,
No more bursting at the seams.

I knew it was different,
For no one else felt the same.
But I wish I knew,
It was my heart that I must tame.

I wish there was something,
Left for me to do.
But it’s too risky, no,
And the benefits would be few.

I’m restless and weak,
Dying for some sleep.
The tears don’t come out,
For they still feel the doubt.

In this mind of mine,
You shall exist eternally.
How can I ever stop loving you,
When you mean so much to me.

I know you want out,
And I understand why.
It’s all practically impossible,
But I choose to deny.

Because I know how to work,
I’ve understood my mistakes.
I won’t go wrong,
I’ll wait as long as it takes.

It’s been a complex journey,
You and me.
I’ve tried to move on,
But the reason I cannot see.

I wish someone would understand,
How I feel alone.
I’ve been fighting for you, sunshine,
Always will and always have.

Contrasts

For the things that define us,
The ones that destroy us.
To life and despair,
The unmatched pair.

For the spring blossom,
And it’s shades of blue-red.
To the autumn sadness,
They’ve gone, they’re dead.

For these early mornings,
The sudden bursts of sunshine.
To those thoughtful nights,
Spent in search for a sign.

For that twist of a smile,
and the tear of a cry,
For these things that perfect us,
The ones that try.

For the ones who see black,
As we think white,
It’s these feelings we lack,
That form shades of light.

For we may never know,
What is not and what may be,
What can be done or what has to be.

For we believe in destiny,
The hardest truth of them all,
The valleys wide and mountains tall,
We cry if we have to,
We die when we die.

Our World

It’s the things that matter,
And the things that don’t.
It’s the people who hurt us,
And the words they told.

It’s the ratios that change us,
And the constants we hold.
It’s the Love we fight for,
And the hate we ignore.

It’s the smile we live for,
And the happiness untold.
It’s the lives we change,
And the lives we fold.

It’s the dreams we die for,
And the Hope that we don’t.
It’s the sorrows we undergo,
And the tears that we show.

It’s the sadness we caused,
And the smiles we made,
The moments we had,
And the Love they hate.

It’s the world we created,
The one we built,
The one we cherish.
And the one we tilt.

Fallen

A cliff once stood out to the sea,
Standing upon it was hopeless me.

Her hair caught the air,
They formed the Perfect pair,
As my heart began to dare,
The love i wanted to share.

Her eyes were Beauty unbound,
I did not dare make a sound,
For my heart had finally found,
The love with which it was eternally bound.

Her lips ne’er did tremble,
Her voice was sweet as honey,
My faith did try assemble,
The cliff was a temple.

Then came the thought,
Against which I fought,
For it was my heart that taught,
Her Love I sought.

Love is eternal,
Love is infinite,
Love is forever,
Never finite.

Love is a prayer,
One to share,
Love is aware,
Never can tear.

Love is being brave,
In order to save,
The one you gave,
Your heart, your safe.

Love is to be sure,
Ready to endure,
This world of pain,
Just for her gain.

This is what Life is,
Not eternal bliss.
But a wait for the moment,
To end this torment.
To see her eyes, her hair, her lips,
As my thoughts begin to dip,
Into her Perfect world,
To take a sip.

The Journey

Nature’s palette is vast,
As ships are one with their mast,
Upon this Ocean wide,
Shall we all take a side.

Everyone is the cast,
There exists no time for the past,
Upon this Ocean tide,
Shall we all once have a ride.

Only Love will last,
As time passes fast,
Upon this Endless land,
Shall we never count sand.

Life is such,
It is never much,
Upon these Sands of Time,
Shall we never mind.

 

Shadows

Shadows, Shadows everywhere,
Provoking thoughts, Setting snares,
Creating fights, Dividing shares,
Stealing love and Separating pairs.

Yet they are what we cannot spare,
For life without downs is only worth a tear,
Happiness without sorrow is never fair.

And yet we never stop to stare,
How shadows and light form the perfect pair,
Why it is they have to be there?

But I have learnt one thing,
Life is worth nothing,
Without the Shadows, Shadows Everywhere.
