The only time you said you loved me back,
You lied.
You lied.
You lied your heart out,
Claiming our love was all that you were about.
Back Pedal, Back Pedal, I distinctly remember,
A could and wet night,
Our minds shot to a fight.
I remember, I remember.
You lied, you lied, you lied.
But I’ll get my reward in heaven, she said.
Yeah I’ll get my reward in heaven, she said.
You’ll find your severance in hell, I say.
Someone will figure it out some day.
I’ll get my reward in heaven, she said.
You lied. You lied. You lied.
The curves of your body can’t contain the evil that you harbor.
It defines your entire life.
It cracks your chances at being a wife.
You lied.
I’ll get my reward in heaven.
Yeah, I’ll get my reward in heaven.
I’ll get my reward in heaven, she said.
You lied.
Choir: ( It’s a shame, It’s a shame, It’s a shame. )

Hi

As per the Poetry Forum Rules you can only have one poetry thread and it should be used to post all of your poetry.

This thread is now your anthology thread. All your future poetry should be posted in this thread.

I have locked your other poetry thread Empire, I would suggest that you repost Empire in this thread as the locked thread will be deleted in a week.

Thanks

Family isn’t always blood, sometimes it’s found in mirrors and carinval rides.
But, even when all the lights fade and the dreams fail,
I will fight tooth and nail.
I will see you again.
We will be together again.
Without anyone, without anything.

I will find you.
Let me find you,
Let me in. Let me in.
Let me save you one last time, we can find our way back.

We will be together again, when the sun goes black.
When all the crowds get pushed back.
I will find you,
But please don’t wait in heaven for me.
I have done too many fucked up things and I don’t think they’ll let me in.
Through it all, the rise and fall,
I will find you.
Just don’t wait for me in heaven.

Let me in,
Let me in,
Let me find a way.
Let me find a savior.
Can you find one?

I don’t care where you went, because,
I will find you.
I will find you through the blood and the guts and the glory.
I will find my way home.
You light the way.

So, Let me in.
Let me in
Let me find a way to a last savior.
Let me find you,
Can you find a way?

I would have done anything for you, one last time.
I would have spent my last dime.
You were the most beautiful thing that I ever called mine.
But don’t ask me where you are now,
Because I can’t figure out where we took the wrong turn.
I don’t care.
Don’t wait for me in heaven, I don’t have the fare.

The world is quiet here.
The leaves rustle and settle.
The sun dims and starts to bruise.

But you can find this anywhere, in any needle or crowded room.
Because it doesn’t matter where it comes from as long as you find it.
I could spend forever here, but I choose to spend it there.
With you. Doing simple things, feeling extravegent things.
We come from two different worlds, but it doesn’t matter.
The world is quiet here, there, everywhere.

We joke that we’re the same, but I’m ust hoping that we’re sane.
Design. Combine. Align.
Are we the same?

I am certain I could find it elsewhere,
That I could find it everywhere.
But I’m here with you.
So what’s the news around? Are we the same?

probubly the best one, so far.

Because Depression is so much more comfortable,
I’d rather live my life behind the scenes.
Because being sad is so mundane, I’d rather slice my skin below the knees.
If crying yourself to sleep at night was a paying job,
I’d be paid in high explosive bullets and lies.
Because that first tug of the knife, just feels so damn good.
Because that first swish of a pill and cup of booze just makes it all not feel so bruised.
Because if I have to spend another day, living and working under the same sky as you,
I might just give it all up,
And find, another way to claim blood at night.
If I have to deal with the poison you left in my lungs,
Why didn’t you just stay?
I’m hunting. I’m hunting.
But I can’t count on you.
I’m hunting and hunting,
But there’s no relief from the gloom.
I’m burying and burning,
But there’s still so many left.
Because depression is so comfortable, I’d rather kill the rest.
Because sadness is so mudayne, I’d rather fill up my chest,
With keresone, and a full liquor batch.
I’d rather someone drop a match, and say that it’s just for fun,
Then sit here and burn in hell, for all the things I’ve done.

On a roll today.

Little angel full of mace,
Little angel full o grace,
Come visit me tonight where the moon doesn’t quite reach.
I have brought you bullets and knives to feed what wants to leave.
Come to me, angel of sorrow,
Come to me, angel of lace.
I brought you turpentine and
Flowers blooming great.
I shall lay them on your grave, when you are feeling ill.
I shall lay them on your bed, when you fall asleep again.
Little angel full of grace,
Little angel full of mace.
I asked you to stop once before,
But once is ever enough for your lure.
I asked you twice, I asked you thrice,
Please just leave me alone, so I can lie.
Little angel full of mace,
Little angel full of grace.
Lay your hands upon my heart,
Lay your hands up on my lungs,
Fill my world with spiders eggs, and moonstruck dances on the sand.
Angel of sorrow,
Angel of lace,
Tomorrow will I see your face?

I might have wished for simpler things,
For better days flown in on angels wings.
But my love did come easily. He was scratched in with knives.
He was suffered and tried and true, and almost always blue.
My love did not come easily, even though he tried.
I had seen his face before, with hopes to be his bride.
But he took a new and left me high and dry.
My love did not come easily, fighting for our lives.

I heard that he had better things, oh, better things abroad.
I heard that he had been broken hearted, most certainly by adultery or fraud.
And I waited, I waited near the stairs. I waited by the ocean and the cliffs to feel his fair.
But he did come at once, and I thought he would not come at all.
But my love did not come easily, he had suffered through it all.

How did they look at you and see a cautionary tale?
It took so long, so much force, so many veins bled dry. But I can’t not look at you and see the moon.
You are the light in the world, and I am just a moth.
East to West, I’m still not impressed.
I guess I need the moon to keep in tune.
North to South I’m just a mouth.
I just need to see the sun again and I’ll be okay.

disregard everything else i've ever written.

this is the first song i feel like i can do something with


Set me on fire and I’ll feel better in the morning.
Wake me up and I’ll scream through the flames
THIS IS LOVE
THIS IS LOVE
THIS IS LOVE
Screaming through the pain,
THIS IS LOVE
THIS IS LOVE
THIS IS LOVE
Set me on fire and I’ll feel better in the morning.
Wake me up and I’ll scream through the flames
THIS IS LOVE
THIS IS LOVE
THIS IS LOVE
Screaming through the pain,
THIS IS LOVE
THIS IS LOVE
THIS IS LOVE
(stuff)
Hearing this, holding onto this, feeling this – gives me so much hope.
So turn them up, set them up, flick the switch, pull the trigger.
I don’t matter as long as it’s going somewhere.
We are the kids who don’t give a fuck where we came from.
We are the fuckers who lost the fight.
We are the bitches who never got stitches.
So, turn that ghost light on tonight.
And through it all I’ll be screaming:
THIS IS LOVE
THIS IS LOVE
THIS IS LOVE
THIS IS LOVE

Sleep in, stay out, it won’t matter.
Disregard everything else I’ve ever said.
This will be my last remark, this will be my final embrace.
The flowers all die here, beneth the soggy interstate lights.
One more stop until we make it.
Because you can call me a criminal if I fit the crime.
I used to think that I was missing out, that I was failing.
Guess I’m just past my prime.
But you can call me a criminal if I fit the crime.
When late nights at gas stations seem to outweigh flashy parties built for the scene don’t have that same rhyme,
I think I’m past my prime.
When taking a walk with your best friend felt so fine.
When sitting alone at the beach felt more like home, than a two hundred squarefoot slab of muscle and bone
Because, You can call me a criminal if I fit the crime.
Should I keep driving or should we pull over?
Rest stops and rhododendrons
Because you can call me a criminal if I fit the crime.
State to state, city to city, guess I’ll never find my way to friendly.
Loosing sleep, loosing weight, I can’t seem to find my way to the ending.
