Losing you for the last time

Losing you for the last time

A year of this mental tug of war
Trying to be better than last time
To walk the line between demure and powerful
I tried to distract myself with the glitters of others
Yet still you’re always the light
But I feel it growing darker around me
Familiar and horrific.

World without war

World without war

Wouldnt it be nice in a world without a war
no more people dying no fighting any more
just  a world of love where we could live as one
living all in harmony all fighting would be gone

just a land of peace with a life thats free
in a world of love way that it should be
where we could live as one in each and every place
all across the universe in each and every place.

A War Within Me

A War Within Me

Once I used to live at peace,
There came two invaders love and loss.
Put me through hell, left me in ruins.
It came to an end but all at a cost.

Since then, there’s a war within me,
It is for me yet against myself.
I’m too humble to break down,
But too proud to submit and ask for help.

It is a war between my heart and mind,
Both are aware that their fate is entwined.
Mind throws spears of practical things,
Heart keeps dodging, flying on imaginary wings.

Not seeking God for resolution or any guidance.
No human can assist me with my own defiance.
All I see is chaos and turmoil,
It doesn’t seem to end, no matter the toil.

I wander deep into the abyss of destruction,
I no longer care who’s going to win.
It seems it’ll only end when I do,
Maybe I had committed the worst of sins.

Suicide is for weak but death is not my fear.
No more tears to shed, it feels my end is near.
I’ll die naturally in this war within me,
Just as a soldier sets his own soul free.

Mind War

Mind War

I sit
looking around at the mess I have made
unsure where to start

My life is unraveling
complete chaos
and not enough time

not enough time
for myself….

So can I find the reasons
to make it through the night?

World is Sold

World is Sold

The world 
is sleeping with gun 
under its pillow,
dreaming of fa­ntasies
to efface sorrows.

The world 
is­ sleeping in terror.
This is the coldest war 
of the year.

Unglorified Victory #Poetry

2017-21-10-23-01-36

There are some wars
Which cannot be lost
Which cannot be won.
Where you used swords
And I used guns.
There was bloodshed,
Deep cuts and wounds.
And each soldier each side did swoon.
Yours more than mine!
In the fought span of time.
And when we were done
The world around thought, I had won!
I looked around,
My gaze to the ground,
Covered in red.
‘Tis true all your soldiers were dead.
And half of mine remained
Going never to be the same.
We hung our heads in shame
Killing is not a game.
There are some wars
Which cannot be lost
Which cannot be won
And…
Which cannot be undone.

WAR IS AT HAND (TRUMP AND NORTH KOREA)

GifsSMS_20170918_085157
TRUMP AND NORTH KOREA
ARE YELLING FIRE AND BRIMSTONE
IF IT COMES TO WORLD CONFLICT
CAN AMERICA STAND ALONE
WILL PRESIDENT TRUMP ATTACK
IF NORTH KOREA ATTACKS GUAM
IT WOULD BE BETTER TO HAVE DISCUSSIONS
TO KEEP IT NICE AND CALM
WILL THE WORLD END AND
WILL WE SEE ANOTHER WAR
IF WE DO DESTRUCTION WILL COME
LIKE NEVER EVER SEEN BEFORE

We Lived Happily During the War #Poetry

And when they bombed other people’s houses, we

protested
but not enough, we opposed them but not

enough. I was
in my bed, around my bed America

was falling: invisible house by invisible house by invisible house.

I took a chair outside and watched the sun.

In the sixth month
of a disastrous reign in the house of money

in the street of money in the city of money in the country of money,
our great country of money, we (forgive us)

lived happily during the war.
