~Videl~ Posted February 17, 2002 Share Posted February 17, 2002 [color=blue]Here's a selection of my poetry for you to (hopefully :D) enjoy. These ones are quite old, I did them a few months ago but I'll try to update this thread next time I get inspired. Any comments gratefully appreciated. [U]Untitled[/U] By day I shield my eyes From the garish "real world" At night I leave them open Running from the creeping darkness in my soul. Surrounded by friends and family Yet I always am so alone, I retreat to my safe haven Inside my head. Prison of flesh and bone. Outside the pettyness and chaos Drive me inside myself. But inside is no better, The constant battle with my light Always just ahead of the creeping blackness. This coldness inside me is Like a dead weight destined Forever to be carried In the warm place where My soul should rest. YOU put it there, but Your memory is what keeps me Chained to this millstone of self doubt Anger and hate. Free me! But even now something inside, Some little remaing spark of me Knows that only I can free myself From the internal prison Laid on me. One day the flames of my soul Rekindled only by a kind of love I have yet to feel, Will burn away my prison Sear away the weak flesh. Then I will be revealed In all the beauty no-one else sees. In the meantime I will wait. Biding my time knowing One day I will soar free. And you will be forever trapped In the enduring bleakness Of your black unfeeling soul. [U]Glazed[/U] What do I see When I look in your eyes? No spark of friendship, Warmth or recognition. Just my own reflection Staring back at me. Beacause they're galzed. Another day, another bottle, Swinging limply from your pallid hand. This sick compulsion slowly drawing The light of life from within your soul, Leaving only emptiness in it's place And a stronger need. Because you're glazed. What dreadful feeling drives you? Is the outside world really so bad? Did all your walls come crashing down? Your hopes in ashes at your feet. And you standing alone In the midst of carnage Looking glazed. Can you not see the harm you're causing? Body and mind weakening day by day. The light within you slowly fading, People around you lost, despairing. But of course you can't Because you've always Been glazed. This one is about an alcoholic. [U]The Fast Lane[/U] Nothing is without a price Life is never simple Sell your soul for pretty things Pay the toll in blood. So here you find my story A lesson to you all Life in the fast lane may be fun That is until you fall... Lonely girl Pretty thing Young at heart Got sucked in Crazy man Lots of cash "Come back to mine, raid my stash" Man and girl Whirlwind life Highs and lows Mostly high Expensive Tates Designer Clothes Is it love? She doesn't know Dangerous times Hide from cops The leser evil Fear the boss Blue and cold Stiff but rich Crazy man Dead in a ditch Fear and panic Girl escapes Draughty doorways At least it's safe Haunted eyes Tormented dreams Now nothing is ever As it seems So now you know the price to pay Is it worth the pain? Life in the fast lane gets you dead All for material gain. This is about some trouble I got myself into a few years ago. I varied the pace in the middle to try to convey how fast the whole experience flew past me. Life can overtake you sometimes if you're not careful.[/color] Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
