Challenges VS Dreams

A challenge to every writer, artist, cook, etc is realizing that a percentage of your work will never be read, seen, heard or tasted. That can be pretty discouraging, but do not allow yourself to feed into it. If for nobody else, do it for you. Allow your expressions to influence you and continue on with a strong-willed attitude, eventually you will get your message out there. Giving up ensures that chance doesn’t happen, proceeding on guarantees there is always an opportunity out there for you. In a world centered by money, these dreams can seem irrelevant and unprofitable. Remember, you don’t take money out of this life when you pass, you take your soul. You decide which one to pour your energy into. 😀

DEMONS, DEMONS

“Demons” represent any negative thoughts or energy that may haunt you. For me, demons are things that have hurt me in the past, anything that upsets me or fears in general. Sometimes, I want to stay in the negativity and allow myself to get upset. We are all guilty of this. I just wanted to share and see what the world thinks, I have struggled with anxiety and some depression my entire life, and sharing this allows me to release some of that.

DEMONS, DEMONS

Demons, Demons I don’t know if I am running away or chasing after you?

These thoughts are killing me, yet aide me in such a twisted way
Everyday, loneliness keeps me company, and so do you.

I can’t seem to escape from you, but do I really want to?

Demons, Demons, you’re following me it seems

But, am I holding your hand?

Have I given you the coordinates to my destination?

Or is it you that already knew my plan?

Maybe I don’t want you gone, maybe I want you to come along.

What if, I am running from some, and welcoming others?

Pleasure is laced with darkness sometimes,

Pain wears an unrecognizable disguise.

How could I even tell the difference?

Are you dragging me down or am I pulling you along?

We are inseparable, that is the truth.

I must admit it. I want you here. Yes all of you.

Demons, Demons, you are part of me

It is you that has me chained, and I can’t get free.

Whether or not I have the choice, I’ll never be too sure

Because once I sense you’re not around

I feel myself searching for you once more.

Demons, Demons, oh how I despise you

Thoughts racing through my mind just to remind me

That this game we play, will never be through

You’re to stay, it is might as well be true.

If you were to leave me now, new ones would surely find me

Demons, Demons oh how I embrace you.

 I enjoy the sensations you create inside me.

Oh, I crave the chaos sometimes.

So, I’ll stop running for the slightest moment.

Just to allow you to attack me, harass me, and destroy me once again.

Demons, demons I wouldn’t be myself without you.

Eventually I’ll start to flee and pretend that it’s you I’m running from,

yet we both know that this isn’t over, and this will never be done.

I’ll Hold Out My Hand

I’ll Hold Out My Hand

Walking away isn’t nearly as hard as not turning around.

I wasn’t suppose to fall for you, yet here I am on my knees

You left me right where you found me.

 I’m wishing you would come pick me up again.

I’m drowning without you, but in your presence I will surely suffocate.

I know you aren’t coming back, but here I wait.

Do I turn around, go forward, or stay right where I am?

I reach out for your hand, and call out your name.

This was never apart of our plan, things may never be the same.

The emptiness lingers around me,

Keeping me company to remind that you’re really gone.

Will you come back for me?

Will I still be here if you return?

What if, I turned around?

Would you be there where I found you

Waiting for me to come back to you, too?

Lines Of Us

The worst kind of pain is the type that doesn’t even hurt.

You are the tear I didn’t let fall.

The missed opportunity I couldn’t take.

The disappointment to my expectation.

You are everything and nothing at all.

Pieces of our heart were tossed into an untraceable hole that we fell into blinded,

While we were picking them up, we decided to mix them with each other’s pain

Now we can’t seem to figure out whose piece we are trying to put back together,

Maybe we are trying to put each other together again, or looking for the pieces we left behind.

We are running away from each other only to turn around and do it all over again.

When will it be the last time, only one more time.

Closer yet farther apart, alone yet together, free but yet chained,

A perfect mix of right and wrong, choices of uncertainly fulled with indecisive thoughts.

For now, or for tomorrow, for today, but not later.

I am de-attached but completely connected.

Always and Never…

Solitude and Romance

No-More

Solitude and Romance

To be in love or to chase a dream

We must be stuck somewhere in-between

Either its you or me, how can we be free?

From this life, from our pain

Sometimes it feels like it is all just a game.

To be alone or to be together,

Whether or not

To go our separate ways

Maybe, it will all go away

And we can be happy for another day.

Solitude and romance are too opposite ends,

Is it possible to have both, do we have to pretend?

Why should we have to pick

To be in love or to chase a dream

When we can be stuck somewhere in-between.

Love Peace Happiness

Love Peace Happiness

We the people can’t see what is right in front of us

We always want to argue, fight, and cuss

Love is the answer to everything we hate

We need to embrace this feeling before it is too late

Life shouldn’t be as hard as we make it

In a world full of pride and misjudgment

When will we stop and take a stand for our actions?

We say enjoy life since we only have one to live

But we as people can’t seem to apologize or forgive

Instead we go against one another in hateful manners

  Our revenge is bittersweet and we fulfill our negative wishes

We do all these things to each other for pure selfish satisfaction.

When will we come together as a whole nation in order to conquer this domination?

To realize that we are not perfect and decide to change our ways

Life is beautiful, something that shouldn’t be taken for granted

Every day is a new beginning, a chance for an opportunity

So when are we going to wake up and take responsibility?

Peace is what we need to discover under all this chaos

Happiness would be the outcome if only we could see clearly

Yet, we continue to be blinded by anger and hate

There is more to life than what we know, if we would only show

Positive thoughts and compassionate feelings, this could be an end

To all this hurtful pain and heartache, yes it could all disappear

If only we could fathom love, peace, and happiness.

 

 

Alone is Home

Alone is Home

Safe in the shadows of the world

Hoping to be invisible to all that is around

Eventually quietness surrounds her soul

 Soon the sadness from the past comes flooding in

Memories rise back to the surface

Those she thought were buried long ago

They cannot be forgotten and shouldn’t be remembered

Pain left unhealed, wounds left still bleeding

Scars of yesterday gradually fading away

Only to reappear tomorrow the same as they were today

Wishing the future would soon appear

Because happiness awaits in that far horizon

In which the sun has secretly already set in

It feels so far away, yet it is so near

She feels powerless and unable to change a thing

Agony starts building up inside her mind

Suffocating the present moment

Drowning her with mixed emotions creating her personal apocalypse

Knowing only one can save her from herself

To rescue her from this place she visits too often

This place of emptiness, this state of being alone

This place that is starting to feel a lot like her home

A poem I wrote when I was having thoughts about my past relationships. I wanted my ex to be the one to take away all the pain but now I know that I was always the only one who could rescue myself from the emptiness.
