Flashback Friday Poetry: Buckle Down

mistake after mistake
i constantly make
before i lose face
changes must be made
losing all faith
sacrifice what i crave
though it seems strange
all must be changed

it’s time i find
my priority of time
focus my mind
and feelings inside
no more sublime
nothing undefined
lost in my pride
stuck in the stride

focus must come
i must be one
no more fun
for nothing is done
time to grow numb
to get things done
i’ve had my fun
serious time has begun

Flashback Friday Poetry: The Never-Ending Story

raped again
it never ends
molested again
too many friends
it hits within
the pain wont mend
i can’t defend
it happens again

why’s this happening
it isn’t stopping
all of them screaming
i can do nothing
i hear when i’m dreaming
all of the screaming
it keeps increasing
never ceasing

causing more tears
from childhood fears
the devil’s face appears
through eyes, oh so sincere
all it does is leer
at everything from the rear
while their future is unclear
his thoughts they will fear

Flashback Friday Poetry: I Am Jaded

i am jaded
these are things you cannot see
my life should be traded
traded for nothing at least
i crawl through the desert
searching for something in me
no one will help me
help me or make me achieve

i am naked
in this illusional stream
wash away the pain
pain that infests within me
my life feels empty
because of the torture i’ve seen
my heart is bitter
as bitter as an untamable beast
all that i wanted
has been nothing more than a dream
and all that is given
is nothing but torment for me

i am the maiden
searching for true love’s company
into the fire
the fire of Hell where i’ll sleep
dreaming of whispers
that cannot penetrate the deep
with my sorrow
sorrow that never lifts from me
