Poem: Future Me

Future Me

The passing wind sang a sad song
And I tagged along
The leafs started to cry
As their tears dropped down on me from up high
In the shadows of the tree
It was waiting for me
A cold star was directed towards me
When I looked at it
It was me
My eyes were red
And they bleed
My face filled with blood
And instead of a smile
It just lowered its head
The wind started to blow harder
Leafs started to dance with it as they were ripped of their branches
And than it got to me
That what I saw earlier
That used to be me
But now, now I stand tall
I grabbed a leaf that was blown away
I will show you all
That what I used to be is not anymore me
Even if the wind sings his sad song
Even if the leafs cry
I will not let you break me
Come out past me
Grab my hand and let us see
What we will be
The future me

Writing Prompt: Fear

How would you describe fear? What is it to you?
Not sure if I’ll do this often but from time to time I might throw in a writing prop like this with a simple description. If you want to you can add your description in the comments. Have fun!

Fear, heh , do you know what’s the worst part about fear? Its not the shaking knees or panic attack, its how you let fear shape your life.
Stand tall, charge your fear, shape it into a positive thing and never let it take the best of you. What I know about fear?
Well I know this one thing, that fear can’t compare to the feeling you feel towards someone you care about. If you can say that fear has a weakness , than its the will of the human heart, the obligation to protect what we think is worth protecting.

Poem: Pillar of You

Pillar of You

I lay awake and miss you
I just want to hold and kiss you
When I think about you
My hear beat starts to go crazy
Because you are so special to me
I need you to hug me
And when I am with you I feel like the world is mine
But now I feel so alone
Are you sure you don’t have a clone
Because my sleep is taken away by the thoughts of you
And when I lay awake
I miss you
The stars turn into your face as
I look into the sky
And it almost make me cry
I wish I could sleep safe and soundly
But I miss your arms around me

Poem: Atmosphere

Atmosphere

I gotta keep going,
Even if I can’t stay on that one road I will go on and on,
So even if I am wrong,
I have people around me that push me back there,
On my way to make my dream come true,
And that dream was dreamed since I was born,
They say only the strong survive,
Well I can’t deny I am weak without all of you,
Thats why I stay around you, that’s why I need all of you,
The world makes me feel like I am falling down,
I dont know if it is real or true,
But when I fall your hands reach to me,
And you push me forward again,
Dead hearts around me everywhere,
Its hard to see that,
But I know there are people that still care,
So I will revive those dead hearts,
And show them that there is someone that does care.

Poem: If I die young

If I die young

If I die young, don’t cry,
be happy,
Think what I’d wish you to become and go out and be that,
A short life was always had on mind,
My time was enough to see,
The world filled with love,
The world that hated me.

But that’s how it is,
At times it’s good,
Other times it’s bad,
So if I die, don’t be sad,
Be always, always happy instead.

And don’t waste your tears on me,
My life started out as a comedy but ended in a tragedy,
The mind fooled and used as a tool,
My heart played with like a ball,
But don’t worry I was sent away with the words of a love song.

In this short life I had enough time,
And if I die young just bury me in a bed of roses,
Throw me in the river and let me float,
If i die young don’t mind,
Brothers, sisters, mother, father,
All of you don’t worry anymore,
I will watch over all of you, I will guard you,
Maybe I died young, but that’s to give all of you time,
Time to think about what life is,
And how funny it is,
When you think about it,
How everyone starts to listen when to you die young.

Poem: Flying

Fly

Sometimes I wish I could fly,
So I can reach you faster,
I  can’t take another look at me without you,
And so I try to fly,
Dream how about flying,
And with your touch, there is no limit,
I, I am sick of all of my limits,
Tonight I will fly.

Poem: Cake

Cake

I was cleaning my room
When I found it in the dark corner without no sound
A golden spoon which I used one afternoon
It was full of dust and a bit of rust
I blew the dust away
The spoon shined
It was then I recalled
The cake we ate
That I had baked
And used the spoon
To take a bite of the cake.

Poem: It won’t be easy

It won’t be easy

I always had a plan
Always knew what I’ll do
And then, then I felt for you
My guard around you is down
And you turned my sad face upside down
The one I searched for was in front of me
You resurrected me
And my heart started beating again
It won’t be easy
But if your with me
Than I don’t have to worry

Poem: I won’t sleep tonight

I won’t sleep tonight

So are we staying this way?
What can I say I felt in love with you
And now my heart beats only for you
I wanted this since a long time
But nobody was close to me
And if they got close to me, they would fly away
Because of the differences, the irregularities
But I was still breathing
Like a teenage dreamer
What can I say I’ve always thrown love away
Yeah you know, I wasn’t that though tho
But I got infected by you
I was always fearless
But when I am around you, it’s like I am a hero in a movie
I want to protect you
What can I say
So are we staying like this
And I always said “Love won’t find it’s way to me”
But than it hit me
When you found me
Love found it’s way
They said god blessed me
Good life, Good looks and money
But I never cared about god anyway
So I threw all that away
I just wanted to be me
Can you see the real me?
So if you are staying, just say
I am still breathing, my heart is still beating
But it something wrong with it
I look at you and know the reason why
My heart skips a beat or two when I think about you
And I feel free
I told my mother I’d grow up one day
But it ain’t to today
What can I say
I am still breathing
Falling in love with you every evening
And I spent so many sleepless nights because of you
When I thought I’d fall asleep I tough about you
My heart went racing and I stayed awake
The colors of the world I never seen before, I see in you
And whats the craziest part of this is you
It was all planned out until you walked into my life
And than the plan was just blown away by the wind of change
I had to rearrange my whole life
Started to rotate around you and my mind was gone
The only thing I think about, is you
And I can’t keep myself away from you
So we are staying this way
Let the wind blow as away
Together floating flying away
And again I won’t sleep tonight
