Trust

I put my faith in you
And exhibited my confidence
But trust is much easier to lose
Than it is to gain
So now that I see past your curtain
And a web of lies entangling
You make it difficult
To trust others ahead of you
Because now my faith is tired
And my guard is high
So feel proud of your accomplishment
For you have certainly succeeded
In being the end of me

Fortress

I am human
This I cannot help
I wish to be a fortress
With reinforced walls
But alas I am not immovable
I have missed judgments
I have emotions
But most of all I make mistakes
I was programmed to
And I accept that
But even so
I will fight against nature
To defeat conflict
To destroy this menace
And I will overcome these obstacles
And make myself a fortress

Fate

Fate is tricky
Never predictable
Never a steady trend in sight
Unstoppable as a hurricane
Is the wake of her decisions
Fight all you can
All you truly are doing
Is swimming upstream
Drowning, struggling for air
So you fight for what you want
But lose the battle
Because ultimately
No matter what you do
Or how hard you try
Fate will do as it pleases
As she whips her nasty head
And forces you
Into her personal oblivion

Living

The day I looked,
Observed your eyes,
I didn’t see a woman.
I saw a future.
Bright, vibrant, lively
Something to build on,
Something to strive for
But it takes hard work,
And patience will weather.
Giving up will seem inevitable.
But with time,
We will develop,
And mold into one.
Through harder times,
And through easier times,
Because I am living to breathe
Not just any air,
But to share yours
Through better or worse
And I will do anything
To see it through
Until the very end
Because a future without you
Is not a future at all

Patience

I roam the paths
Steady, controlled
But alas others differ
Erratic, wild
I wonder as they pass
What causes this reaction
Why someone would be so
But as they scramble
Realization slaps cold
These people are mirrored
And I see myself
But how could I preach patience
When I, myself
Have very little to start?
I slow my feet
And soothe my beating heart
To clear this picture
And enjoy life for what it is
Instead of rushing through
And missing my chance

True

I kiss and fall
Into my light abyss
No end in sight
With endless bounds
And absent faces
All just a copy of the next
Except for one
The one that lights my way
I have a connection
Unexplained but extraordinary
Love and pain
Contained between us
A journey unexplored
Awaiting my compass
And I will direct myself through
To be with this angel I see
And to discover
That which I have never known
The mystery that avoids so many
Their one love
The one they were meant for
And I will treasure it
For all eternity

Faceless

I walk through the halls
Blank face, ghost-like
Unseen by many
Unheard by all
In need of attention
That was never earned
A cry for help to all
A plea for what I lacked
They will remember me
My thoughts on it
Clear as a window pane
They will feel this pain
My emptiness inside
Will not be felt by any
And I will not be missed
As the chair slips
And the noose tightens
Many mourn my passing
I misunderstood everyone
I was adored, cherished
But now it is too late
As my eyes close forever
And I leave a bright world

Angel

As the angel sleeps
I smile in her presence
Astonished by her serenity
And grateful for her love
I wish not to leave
But know that I must
So in my heart she will stay
Until the next time
That my angel and I
Can share another kiss
And lie down gently
In each other's arms

Soul

I may search the seas
And scan the clouds
I may walk the earth
Though it can’t be found
I search for a soul
Yin to my yang
Though I find none
So I endure pain
In my soul
The incomplete piece
Without my true love
For which my search will not cease
Though unknown to me
A person so complete
Did not require a search
Found not by incredible feat
So the puzzle finally solved
And my life made whole
Entire and complete
As I have found my soul

Hypocrite

How dare you
Criticize me
When you stand there
Doing the same?
You act better
Holding your nose high
When humility
Is massively more desirable
So I will not stoop
Will not conform
But will act taller
When I know my flaws
So keep on preaching
And be damned asunder
For I am of purer state
Than the lies personified
Within you
Oh wretch of hypocracy

Fear

I tremble violently
My mind is no help
As it races through scenarios
Making me see things
I try to ignore them
But they push me
Play to my disease
And their upper hand
I feel like I am drowning
Suffering in my own body
But the solution shows itself
As steel crosses my wrists
And it all vanishes to black

Heart

The mind is a dangerous tool
It can distort judgments
Your heart can answer
Completely and correctly
Feelings your heart has
Should not be overlooked
Follow them more often than not
And happiness will be unveiled

Unconditional

The care I have for you
Goes unmatched in all bounds
I would do anything for you
And protect you by any means
Because you have proven yourself
To mean more to me than most
And chivalry is not dead
Because while dormant in most
I will open that door for you
And go the extra miles
To see your gorgeous smile
But I have one condition to this
Love me unconditionally
And simply respect me
And for the eternity ahead
I will stay yours

Race

The rumble excites
As the fire ignites
And the pistons pump
Speakers thump
Exhaust pops
The crowd hops
Oil’s scent occupies air
A dangerous affair
Tires tear road paved
The flag is waved
And the race is on

Vengeance

Misguided
Betrayed
Vengeful
Determined
Planned
Attack
Siege
Encounter
Struggle
Kamikaze
Eliminated
Nevermore

Man

A struggling man
A poor choice
A perished man
A broken conscience
A driven man
A noble mission
A respected man
A second chance
A saved man
A clear conscience
A continuous cycle
To pay it forward

Cleansed

Through wicked eyes I see
The world cleansed
Every vessel except mine
Angel's presence
Devil's absence
I can't hide my evil
And purity surrounds me
I just want stability
But no one can help me
My cries are unheard
So into abyss I fall
Into the hands of the loved
As they pull me back
High above the water
And the light is present
Angel's wings presented
And I am saved

Swallowed

A cursed man
Rolling along blind
Down the tracks
The long black train
Devil as conductor
Welcoming sin
Rejecting purity
Therefore in his eyes
I fit perfect
Model passenger
Devil's student
Lost forever
Through the fire
And the gates of Hell

Paths

A bright future
Lost in darkness
A strong talent
Lost from neglect
Take the broken
Mend them
Take the fallen
Hoist them up
Take your advantages
Practice them
Take your abilities
Use them
You will find yourself
On top of the world
Walking tall
And living taller

Wait

I try to forget sometimes
But there you linger
I try to move on
But I’m not strong enough
I see your face
But you’re not there
I reach for you
But feel nothing
My heart is yours
But you can’t take it
I may not see you now
But can you wait?
I have life to live
But yours is gone
I love you
And always will

Desire

Desire can turn evil
To simply have it,
Nothing offensive.
But when turned to envy,
It drives insanity
Cruise control to Hell
And someone lays the track
Only one can stop it
But who is there to do it?
When a man is on a path
It is difficult to redirect
But the conscience knows
It is up to the man
To desire for himself
To renew appreciation
And look to what they need
Rather than what they want.

Half

Reckless, I stumble
Searching for the lost
What is lost though?
Something creates absence
A mystery to me
Curious of this empty spot
I employ help
Shrinks to analyze
Am I going crazy?
What if it is constant?
Will I always feel it?
And so as my eyes wander,
Her eyes find mine,
And absent no longer
I found what I missed
And I am born
Brand new beginning
One life ahead
Made from two
And angel’s wings to fly

Kingdom

The unexpecting innocence
Sheltered in each tense
Past and all the time since
Holding a weak presence
Life brings blueprints
Pulls back mind’s curtains
No longer blind, restored sense
Unveils a new prince
One of wisdom and valiance
Pure with no need to rinse
And God’s prophets
Follow a mortal’s guidance
Hence
A new kingdom

Shadows

Shadows dance around me
Mockingly so
I can hear their laughter
And they can see my failure
But I cannot stand in this shadow
For I have my own life
My own goals and dreams
Standards may be different
But determination is high
For I need to cast my own shadow
And prove to them all
That my friends and family
Cannot keep me down

Will

Though many miles seperate us
We will not be deterred
For we know what we have
And know that we are capable
So shy away, we won't
We will stand strong
In the face of adversity
And in the eyes of the doubtful
We will prove them wrong
And withstand the tests
Because all it takes is will
And we have plenty

Concede

Reaching for air
I gasp for nothing
My body longs for life
My mind wants none
I am old and worn
My family all moved on
I know what awaits me
A better life
No more tiring
No more fighting
Just a new life
And the return
Of those I love

Nerves

The object of a man’s affection
Evident deal with the devil
One foot in front of the other
Right for my table
Eyesight must be going
Sweat beads upon my brow
I lick my lips anticipating
Words a tongue twister
Shapely are the hips
Gorgeous as a nautical sunset
And golden as sand
Seat is taken
Smiles exchanged
Nerves are ignored
A new man is born

Matrimony

Love is fickle
Misunderstood to many
Cherished by more
A heavy word, compassionate
Not meant lightly
Commitment to follow
Unless misused
But in this case
Used in perfect conjecture
For the light of my day
And the lightness of heart
Are all due to you
And the love I project upon you
And receive in return
Which compound to one
God’s everlasting bond
Man and woman
Husband and wife

Opportunity

He felt rewarded
He felt compassion
But he was misled
He was betrayed
Life altered eternally
A life unwanted
But a horizon is unseen
Opportunity lurks near
Proximity nearer than ever
Unnoticed as a fly
Slips from fingertips
And dwindles into nothing
Nonexistent ability hereforth
To capitalize
Until the next person makes the turn
