Football

Click clack
Click clack
We march to this battlefield
Yells erupting from within
We have prepared for this
We have wanted this
The smell of blood
Sweat
Hard work
Determination
Click clack
Click clack
This game is ours
Yes, this game is ours
It's that time y'all
Sixty minutes to prove you're the best
It's game time
Are you ready?

Winter

Visible breath appears
Disappears simultaneously
I smile to myself
As I wrap up tighter
My favorite time is here
That which I can bundle up
And cuddle with my darling
With no needed excuse
Snow will fall
Trees will be bare
Winter is here
My favorite time of year

Machines

My hands wrap tighter
Sweaty palms, beady eyes
A grin overtakes me
Shaking under vibrations
An amount of joy
Unmeasured by another moment
As this one steals my heart
I throw this machine into gear
And tear away into the night

Lips

You lay motionless
I smile at your beauty
A slight graze of the hair
I laugh at a hint of drool
Protruding
Ever so slight
From your
Breathless lips
No longer a breath to be had
As I speak gently to you
Lying motionless
With that knife
Protruding
Ever so slight
From your
Breathless lips

Poison

Why do I feel this way
Poisonous tingle at my throat
My heartbeat racing
Uncontrollably my blood pumps
Why is this happening
What has caused this illness
This disease overtaking me
My body now a captive
I fight to stay alive
To stay awake, eyes open
So I am not a victim
In this, my own world
Because this poison is my own
Put in place by incident
Stress has made me want freedom
So instead of taking a high road
This was my escape
But Lord save me now
In my time of dying
For I regret my choices
And wish to be at peace
Set me free from myself at once
Let me defeat my demons
And release all my hatred
So I may live once again

Squares

You look past me
An individual ignored
But it will not shake me
It will not deter me
I am here to stay
I will not let this end
Years of effort put in
With no results to date
I am a shy young man
But a blossoming boy
Talking to you has been
Well, impossible thus far
But today I will approach you
I am ready to speak
And as your eyes lock on mine
I lose my tongue to the air
And all words planned
Now never spoken
I will start anew tomorrow
Back at square one

Ant

The fear mounts inside
Watching these dangers
Towering obstacles
Terrifying predators
I scurry as quietly as I can
Trying to stay under radar
Although believed inevitable
I will attempt it
I treasure my life
My family and my home
So let me live in my hill
An ant of peace
And for peace

First

Silent
Steady
Patient
Smooth
Straight
Fast
Forward
This is my life
I will be quick
This is my weapon
My attitude
My drive
I will finish first
I will strive
This is my drive
This is my victory

Pedestal

I live in the clouds
Constantly in over my head
But no one should live low
Looking up at what could be
I sit in the clouds for a reason
To prove that the impossible
Is not actually so
This illusion will not detain me
And keep me from my goals
I will scratch and claw
Bite and rip my way forward
To get what I want
So live on the ground if you please
But you better get used to the idea
Of looking up at me
While I stand on my pedestal

Innocent

Dead in the water I lay
Sitting duck to a predator
Unaware of my vulnerability
Or the coming onslaught
It is destined I be here
In this very moment
In my prison cell of wood
Confined by those I trusted
I am a betrayed man
With imperfect evidence in play
So dead in this water I lay
Victim of my innocence

Fruitless

You would not believe
How I truly feel
I saw you once
Infatuated would be the word
Let me just say
That this beauty approaching
Is not simply put
So here I struggle to speak
This is my chance
For the girl of my dreams
But alas, I am fruitless
As words unspoken
Proved to be my achilles
And in retrospect
I am shamed by my efforts
As the girl of my dreams
Walks away forever

Selfdestruct

Defeated
I lay on the field of battle
Defeated
By my worst enemy
Myself
Lost my own battle
Myself
A broken being
Destroyed
All hope to carry on
Destroyed
Lost to sea
Gone
I am gone now
Gone
Never again to return

Transformations

I hope you understand
What it is
That's about to take place
In this very moment
A transformation
A rebirth
Of a man you have never known
Of a man never witnessed
A man possessed
With an unprecedented drive
A will to win
With the world in his palm
Reigns in his hands
No unlikelihood present
Nothing unattainable
He will take it by storm
Bring it to present
And we will all be here
As a part of history
As a part of the reshaping
Of our world

Deceiver

Why do you discount
What I believe?
Who are you
To tell me what is real?
I believe in what I will
And faith is the reason
I need no negativity
From you, deceiver
So doubt all you might
I will not waver
You will not change me
For my faith is strong

Motive

Let me free
From my prison
Let me loose
To my craft
I want to break away
And bring new light
Into a dark world
Surrounding me
Let me free
To set light
Into the world
And other's lives
I will be the crutch
I will be the motive
I will be momentum
I will be the light

Living

I'm dying
Little by little
Day by day
Too early it seems
So much left for me
I wish for extensions
For more time here
But alas, death has spoken
Set a timeline for me
So I act spontaneously
At a whim
To experience
All I can
While I can
Before my time is done
I'm dying
Little by little
But not today
Today, I live

Healing

Leave it behind
Leave your troubles behind
Be here now
Be here with me right now
I will heal you
Your broken heart
For I know pain
I know your pain
I will heal you
Let me heal you

Leaving

Silently, I move
Careful not to stir you
The angel in my life
Laying peacefully beside me
I am so grateful 
So indebted for her
But it is for that
I must leave now
I am not worth it
So goodbye my angel
And may your feet
Find their path

Inevitable

Lead me down this path
I may never come back
You create a monster
You may not like the result
I did not wish for this
Nor did you ask for it
But your actions are permanent
And this transformation, inevitable
I pity your understanding
Or lack thereof
For now I am different
With you to curse
As these black tides take me
Captive in my own experiences
It is too late
It is too late

Nature

Violence controls our fists
Anger fills our heart
It is saddening to realize
How driven by anger we are
The mere action of another
Can bring us to act
Aiming to harm them
Without pause or regard
People wonder what causes this
And sadly I disagree with them
Nothing causes it to happen
It is simply our nature

Excel

Too much is never enough
Never settle for what you have
When you can strive for more
And achieve greatness
Playing small and for average
Should not cut it in your world
But playing to be the best
Is the only way you should live
I will achieve greatness before death
And empower those in my shadow
Not only to achieve it
But to become better

Possessions

I crawl and I scratch
For everything I have
I appreciate it all
And take nothing for granted
But there you stand
With everything you were handed
No respect for materials
No respect for yourself
You look down on me
For the minimal possessions
But I pity you
For you'll never have enough
So I hope you recover
From your mental distress
So that you can learn value
And respect for the world

Unguarded

Let me see you
Vulnerable, unguarded
Put your faith in me
Put your trust in me
If you can't
How am I supposed to
Put my faith in you
Put my trust in you
I will stand vulnerable
Let down my guard
Allow my true colors to shine
So you know who I am
For love can't exist
Without understanding
So I open up to you
And here I stand

Escape

It pains me so
As you stay in the dark
Withdrawn from life's curves
Unwilling to confront them
It is puzzling to me
But more so than that
It angers me to see
For I know your pain
If you let these things rule
These obstacles before you
You will fall to them
Forever in the dark
So please stand tall
Allow me to help
Allow yourself the pleasure
Of freedom from your mind

Beauty

My eyes impart upon me
The beauty unlike another
Your snow riddled eyes
Your lips so luscious
But more than that exists
Present also is an attitude 
One unlike any other known
More appreciated than another
More beauty than surface permits
And I am enveloped, infatuated
By your entrancing presence
Ever indebted am I
For you have opened my eyes
To more than thought possible
And with this, a new world
Originated from your beauty

Forever

Come a little closer
Move a little closer
I need you here now
Need you wrapped up
Tangled up in my arms
With no solution in sight
With no care to move
As our hearts beat together
So this is what they call love
So this is what forever is
I have waited my whole life
And this moment is so grand
I will never be disappointed
I will never be let down
This is our life, as one
And there is no where else
I would rather be
There is no one else
I would rather be with
For you complete my life
And that's all I will ever ask of you

Shoulder

This shoulder I lend you
Now and for the future
To lean and cry on
In your time of need
You feel yourself a burden
But I assure you otherwise
You are simply in need
I am here to provide
I care about you infinitely
More than I'm sure you know
But here I stand, a rock
Planted firmly in your life
With no sign of removal
Unless specified otherwise
You need me you say?
I will be there to facilitate
I will be there to care
I will be there

Unaware

I only know my pain
Isolated in this world
By the demons inside
That possess and control me
My mind is a prison
To which only I am aware
As I turn away help
And supporting hands
Leave me alone now
For only I know my pain

Friday, August 3, 2012

Extraordinary

A fire burns within
Not of anger
But of motivation
To impart on my journey
My plan, my path
To find myself
And discover what I can
About my true potential
I am my own man
I am more than ordinary
I will be better
Extraordinary

Polar

Hatred
The only feeling I know
For people with no compassion
No kindness, no mercy
I can not reflect more intensity
Than into this feeling
As I withdraw into myself
To isolate myself in this time
But now I breathe deeply
And relocate my feelings
Into more constructive
Useful behaviors and feelings
I will not stand for hatred
I will deflect it
And own this feeling
Happiness

Average

As I am drawn down
Down into the Earth
I think about what I was
What exactly was my worth?
I weep for realization
That I was merely average
I was never called a gentleman
I was never called a savage
I wish to have been greater
Achieved more in my life
But as I am drawn down
I leave my kids and wife
This casket surrounds me so
No escaping this one
As my average life is complete
My average life is done
