When something is ugly and hideous, it is human instinct to change it make it more presentable. To make it beautiful. But that doesn't take away what's underneath. These collection of poems are blunt, honest, and discuss sadness which is something most people would want to decorate and hideaway. Beautiful words used to describe the raw truth.

Ineffable

Best to get these thoughts out of my head

They’re so strong and demanded to be heard

I am not sinking

I am not swimming

I am drifting by the things I’m letting drown

The dark is unshameful that’s why I sleep through the day

The light shines the truth

And I don’t know what that is

I have an idea of what’s going on

But the opinions of others strike that down

They eventually become my own thoughts

Stay happy

Stay light

It’s easier to deny once you’ve been practicing it for so long

One mind doesn’t matter next to the precious and fragile

What I want to be and what I am doesn’t fit what’s needed

I am here for you

I am not here for me

I comes before u but I comes after b

Be you

Be me

Be what I’ve always wanted

Wanted

Believed

Dreamed

Tried

Keep going

I’ve tried

I don’t know where success comes in

What does the future hold

And if it holds nothing more than the past

Why repeat the damage that’s been done?

You can’t repeat the past

But you can make it worse

Learn from your mistakes or perfect them

Make them colossal

The mistakes you fixed let them tear you up

Resisting my demons is a sour taste

Is it worse than what I wanted?

I still want

Wanted

Want

Choices I can make again

Will make again

Shouldn’t make again

I’m not sure what I’m trying to say

I’m just getting some words across

Words I don’t know how to say

Can’t say

Won’t say

Should say

Please say

But I can’t

Won’t

So I’ll keep playing

Pretending

Fantasizing

Instead of trying

Urging

Wanting

 

Hiraeth

A land of dreams

I never went there and never let it in my veins

Years later I want it to

Such an inspiration for children

Why didn’t it inspire me

Why am I untouched

Ungraced

What is my motivation

It’s all so great

All so grand

All so not historic

Why can’t I be a tragedy

Why can’t I be something that makes sense

Something to follow and dream in

Motivation

Exploitation

Admiration

Imagination isn’t enough

Compared to the minds who have already beat you

The dreams already dreamt

You’re too late

A back hand thought

A back hand dream

A dream dreamt by the big minded and go getters

In dream land where you are not

 

Epoch

Second born

Supporting act

Last place

Almost there

But not starlight

Just a mere blink

Better luck next time

 

Limerence

Can’t you see it

Love is all around you

You are loved

You love others

Is it not enough

Let it tether you

Let it root you to this earth and never let you go

You still have the knife

You are loved

You still snip it away

You love others

You still selfishly let go

Of course you did

 

Nefarious

Mother

Father

Friend

Mentor

Acquaintances

Possibility

They are waiting

Willing

To give you the benefit of the doubt

To lead you down a path better traveled

Don’t turn left

Don’t go that way

You are wicked with your choices

With your persistence

Take your evil away

Lock it up

Seal it tight

Don’t taint to goodhearted

With your emptiness

 

Serendipity

You don’t know

There’s still hope

Hope

Chance

Luck

Prayer

You don’t know

Maybe sanctuary is around the corner

Good things still happen

Kindness of strangers

Strength of loved ones

Happier days to come

Just wait one more day

One more day

Then rest

If you still want

Just one more day

 

Iridescent

She’s so pretty

She’s so smart

She’s so lively

She’s so loved

He’s so bold

He’s so talented

They’re so adored

They’re so treasured

She’s so orange

She’s so blue

She’s so purple

She’s so green

He’s so yellow

He’s so red

They’re so marvelous

They’re so extraordinary

You’re so blank

 

Ephemeral

Pain

Aching

Affliction

Infliction

Madness

Sadness

Trouble

Torment

Terror

Loss

Woe

Worry

Misery

Agony

Happiness

 

Eloquence

I don’t know to do poetry

Words are so foreign to me

I speak in thought

Ideas that I can’t get across

No matter how many synonyms I use

Or all the beautiful words I use to lure you in

Can you understand what I’m saying?

Do you hear the plea in my words?

Some things I can’t explain to myself

Can you do it for me?

Please
