Those Who Stab Friends In The BackAll that remains of dismalThose Who Stab Friends In The Back2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Reality has been long forgotten.
Can you imagine for a second
A close friend is talking about you,
Not to your face, but behind your back?
Eventually it gets to the boiling point.
She who remained by your side constantly,
Helping you when it comes to problems
And having so much fun together at times.
Daring not to take your side now, she
Obviously doesn't believe a single
Word that you say; slagging you off.
Really, is this how loving friends act?
All you can do is bring up my past mistakes,
Zealously crucifying me to the crosses that
I carry for the remainder of my life.
Lose the pretense, you are beguiling.
Unbecoming ArroganceYou have a cucumber up your arse,Unbecoming Arrogance2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
That's why you're an arrogant king
Portrayed in fairy tales, however your
Smug face is painted like a joker.
Although you are my elder as such,
Don't rely so heavily on the assumption
That you have my adoring respect;
Your feeble mind warps with delusions.
Who are you to ruin my gift?
Acting no better than a pompous
Brat, you resort to harshly undermine
My abilities with poisoned arrows.
I consider the art of writing as
A close friend, their pages listen
To everything I write down, giving
Me endless amount of great support.
To not speak openly of my fleeting
Emotions would be such a crime.
My profound words breathes new life
Into this aspiring artist.
So what if a few of my poems
Are to be considered depressing?
I write only for myself, all my
Personal experiences strengthens me.
You accuse me of repeating myself by
Saying the same things? Your heart as
Well as your eyes are vastly blinded;
Open them, so you can learn the truth.
Immediately you know ev
Nobody's PuppetMaybe it was all worthwhile,Nobody's Puppet2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The ties have been severed
And now at last I am free to
Become my own person again.
My mind has been liberated,
Wanting to expand even further.
I am no longer a spineless puppet,
I am nobody's fool, not even yours.
Falling Short Of The PrizeKeep on saying things are fine whenFalling Short Of The Prize2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Realistically the truth is stretched.
Ironically the betrayed becomes the betrayer;
Meddling with hot wires and devices;
Slowly a very strong heart ceases to beat.
Once she trembles and quivers with silent rage
Negativity pours rapidly from every outlet;
Falling fast, she misses the safety mat.
Undeserving of obtaining her pleading hand,
Readily your acute attention wavers to the
Young kid, deeming her as your favourite girl.
Ghost LoverI'm holding myself back,Ghost Lover2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I am not going anywhere in life.
I have no direction at all,
No wind propelling my sails;
Everything is deathly quiet.
He's nowhere to be seen,
I can't be with him physically,
Strong water separates us.
At times I feel I'm waiting
For him to break my heart.
Empty promises like before,
Everyone else is doing so much
Better than what I've done.
Some are married with children
While I haven't got that at all.
The distance is suffocating me;
No guidance, no acceptance and
Certainly no chance in us.
Why am I holding tightly onto
A relationship that isn't there?
There's no way of being together,
We're just merely fooling ourselves
Into believing what is not true.
I know he is not welcomed and
He has nobody's approval anymore.
I sometimes yearn for more,
Actually holding someone in my arms
And to be able to see them each day.
He is never going to provide me
With that choice no matter what.
Everything is not going to plan,
Everyone is telling me he has to go.
He was eng
AftermathDear you,Aftermath2 years ago in Letters More Like This
Anything can happen; last night was solid proof.
The one thing I didn't expect to happen actually did happen. Instead of being deeply upset about it like the first time around, I'm more in a state of utter shock and disbelief. It's kinda like having someone throwing water from a cup directly at your face. The impact is so swift and afterwards you're left asking yourself "Did that really happen to me just now?"
No other feelings rise to the surface all because you're stuck in a stupor, not realising the proverbial bombs has just landed and now all that's left around you is raw and utter chaos. However you're oblivious to the damaged environment that exists in real life, the outer world. You're standing there as if frozen in time, clearly in a trance as it would seem. Somewhere in your mind you have registered the unexpectedness of the situation, yet it refuses to spread through your system like an ill-gotten disease.
That is what I'm going through right now. That's the honest
Friendly EncouragementI can't thank you enoughFriendly Encouragement2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Even if I possibly can.
You're the wind beneath my wings,
The loyal compass directing me,
The voice of reason and logic.
Never have you deserted me,
Always by my side to the end
In times were only darkness exists.
A small supporting smile
Means more than you can imagine.
