Poem: Spellbound

 

 

I can run from my demons
but they won’t leave me
in a which hour they keep wake me up
tearing my soul apart

In cold sweat, I cannot breathe
why do they won’t leave me
I can’t take it anymore

Just when I am on the edge when I’m about to broke
they just stop and laugh to me
Is this some joke?

And they come back every night
torturing me ’till I have nothing left for the fight

Broken down with tears and shakes
they keep adding more pain
leading me to new mistakes
turning my life in hell.

Poem: My Guardian Angel

 

 

All these years it’ s driving me crazy
My heart is broken, living in pain
My guardian angel is so lazy,
Drunk, or kicked out in the rain

When he’s sober and with the hangover
He does something for me
Like a foreign movie without a subtitle
I don’t understand what he’s saying

I pray to him to watch over me
I pray for help and good luck
But he’s at the bar, you see
He’ s drunk again and he doesn’t give a fuck

Poem: Take It All

 

 

Take all our money
take all the power
what will you bring
when it comes to the final hour?

Hide behind the diploma
hide behind the uniform
get up from this mental coma
hide from a bullet storm

Under the curtain of madness
in the surface of ignorance
you only bring the sadness
giving nothing for existence

Drowning us, we hit the bottom
and everything we have
takes Babylon

Poem: What do you fear?

 

 

Head up high looking for the sky,
Only gray clouds again, no end in sight,
I am sitting, just listening to the drops of rain,
A happy home, but what’s the reality?
Does your mind go fast?
And how long does that last?
How fast does it break the walls around you?
Can you escape the prison you built yourself?
I can see the state of misery from the introduction,
Maybe I will use my eyes to see a brighter day,
The pictures don’t get clearer, but I feel like I am nearer,
Am I from around here?
Don’t want to be everything you want,
Don’t want to be everything for you,
I don’t even fucking know you,
Could it be to be my destiny,
Something that killed me?
Well I can’t follow, because I am still alive
Only the scars are there and I just fly I don’t care,
If you try to kill me, your life I won’t spare,
You want to take me far away from here,
What’s your true intention?
What the hell do you fear?

Poem: In memory to you all

 

 

I wake up , another morning, another stop
My head hurts, my heart beats fast
They all came in my dream again
My eyes are red
I was supposed to lead
Never show emotion
But the day you left me
Its the day everything felt apart
I want to get back to those days
When we were all together , no hate , no death
And the one who saved my life
The one who made me laugh
All of you, how are you now?
Is it a better place
Should I join you too?
Everyday people die, others cry
I never shed a tear for anyone of you
Because they went down under the earth with you
It might be true that to get to the top you have to walk over bodies
But why does it have to be yours
All of you are gone now
And I am a bit alone now
But from time to time I see you all in my dreams
When we are still were young
No plan for the future
And when the future came
It stung , I was in pain
Because all of you
Why, why did all of you have to die?

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.
