a collection of poems that are about overcoming hardships in life

Over Coming Disaster 

By Douglas Bourdon

 

 

 

Tears of sorrow

 

Thoughts run through my head

The many fears that I dread

My mind is a locked book not easy to be read

Pain in my eyes but my tears do not surface

Wallowing in my suffering

Hiding behind the curtains

Wanting to break free from this closed in cell

Banging on the door But no one hears me yell

Anguish and torture hatred and despair

I wish someone would save me from my own personal hell

 

 

Overload of thoughts

 

Thoughts go through my mind

Little comfort do I find

Overloaded with thoughts

An avalanche of tears

Too much to count

Too much to track

Things that attack me

The stabbing of my back

I try to get better

However still a cure do they lack

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Therapy

 

Sit in a chair

Asking for help

None do they give

Finding out soon this how I will live

Living in fear

Living in stress

Knowing not to expect anything less

Wanting a cure

None is in sight

Day by day I am slowly losing this fight

 

 

One pain at a time

 

Pain in my eyes

Tears show behind the well disguise

Tension flare

Showing itself like the dawn of the skies

Carrying on week after week

An end to my torment

The outcome is oblique

Trying to act like the world is not hell

I put on my disguise

I wear it very well

 

 

Did I

 

Did I upset someone

I do not know

So I must apologize

Sorry I must show

Keep on the act

Till I feel comfort

Then another trigger starts

I begin to suffer

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Glass

 

Glass glass , everywhere I see

Glass glass , why do you bother me

I should not be bothered

I should not fear

No matter what I feel it is always near

Tortured by it alone in my mind

I could forget the ritual

Give in I choose instead

Glass glass

Just you and me

Insanity I feel it creeping over me

 

 

Numb

 

I wash till my hands go numb

I wash till the blood drips down from my thumb

Washing so long

My hands start to crack and bleed

I cry to myself wishing I was freed

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Frozen in time

 

I remember the day like it was yesterday

Like it was not so long ago

Stress came over me

No relief to be shown

I felt like my world was torn

Something snapped inside

A piece of my brain torn

From that day on

My life has been a hell

Wishing I would die

Not able to yell

 

Wreck

 

It felt like time was not moving

Like the world was trapped in a never ending pause

I looked around and glass was all around

All over me covered in glass drowns

Stress to this day around me surrounds

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Close

 

Held me close when I cried myself to sleep

Kissed my arm

When I fell and was full of woes

Loves me for all that I am

She made me who I am

 

 

 

 

One day

 

If for one day

No sadness did we see

If for one day no pain did we meet

If for one day

The sky was not so gloom

The world would not feel like a never ending doom

 

 

 

 

 

 

When the world sleeps

 

When the world falls asleep

Does the world still go on

Or does the world choose to sleep along

For how would we know what the world does

When we close our eyes

Maybe when were fast asleep there is more beauty to the skies

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Where to go

 

What to do and where to go

What my life has in store

Yet to be shown

Should I go left or should I choose right

Should I choose to go towards the unknown

Should I seek greatness

Or content should I be

How much to wonder

What all is in store for me

 

 

Full of promise

 

World full of kindness

Lies that I was told

Gave in to this world

The deal that I was sold

Days turn into years

Growing older is my greatest of fears

Soon I shall fall into

The never ending slumber drawing near

 

 

 

End

 

One day this world is gong to end

We will see for our eyes

That no more time is there to lend

One day we will meet our final fate

Hopefully by then it has not been too late

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fear of the mind

 

If for one second

My mind was not full of fear

If for one minute

Death did not feel so near

If for one day

My life was not pain

Then maybe one day I would feel like I was sane

 

 

 

 

 

Yell yell

 

Yell yell

Argue back and forth

What is the outcome

To what is it worth

Instead of fighting

Maybe we should just talk

Then peaceful we would be

And pain we would be without

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When

 

When will this pain end

When will it cease

Will I only be free

Of madness the day I become deceased

I hope my pain ends soon

Sometimes I wish I would not wake up

From this dream I have been through

 

 

Spinning clock

 

Seconds go by

The pain never stops

Minutes fly by

The spinning of the clock

Day after day

The pain always stays

Day after day

I wish I could block the pain away

 

 

 

 

 

 

Roller coaster

 

Marriage is a roller coaster

It does not stay in one place

It has it’s ups and downs

Sometimes you feel your losing the race

Just hold on

Talk it out

The race will soon begin to slow down

Try not to dwell on the little things

The good things will come around

 

 

 

 

 

 

Greatest pest

 

Annoying a pest

Some days I wish I never woke from my rest

I hear those words

Day after day

Tears form from my eyes

The pain is delayed

I try to hold it in

Only so much can I hide

I wonder to myself

Would the world be better if I had died

 

 

Formation of sorrow

 

Tears form fast

They quickly fade

The tears might fade

The pain however stays

My eyes seem dry

If I said I was happy

That would be a lie

 

 

 

Clock set

 

Crying and upset

Comfort I have not met

My mind is like a clock

It has finally been set

Time to end this pain

Tears fall down like rain

My thoughts so tight

The choking of a bicycle chain

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yesterdays tomorrow

 

Today is yesterdays tomorrow

Yesterday has no time left to borrow

Take the time

Left this day

To make the most out of today

 

 

 

 

 

Tired of it all

 

Tired of the fear

Hatred of the pain

I annoy others

I start to feel my shame

I try to stop

My OCD will not let me

God please help me

 

 

 

 

Why oh why

 

Why was I born

If only to suffer

Why should I live in pain

When there is no cure

Why should each and every moment

Feel like a chore

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Page

 

Words to a page

Helps control the rage

Writing out my pain

Helps keep me sane

My own personal therapy

Still my suffering

Controls all of me

 

 

Time stops

 

Stop the time

Let my restless mind

Begin to unwind

Put myself at ease

The fear would cease

Dreams and hopes

I hold onto so dear

If for one minute

My life wasn’t controlled by fear

 

 

 

 

 

Lyrics of a dream

 

Dream a peaceful dream

Let your worries start to leave

Dream a better day

When all the troubles of the world

Will be yesterday

Dream a sweet song

A lyric strong enough

To carry all day long

Dream a love so pure

A love strong enough

That it will always endure

 

 

 

 

Light of my life

 

The way she lights up the room

The way she makes me realize

How lucky I am to have her

The way she makes the butterflies

In my stomach stir

The way she pulls me close in so easily like a lure

 

 

 

Stars align

 

Two hearts align

Star crossed lovers coincide

Brought together

Like the current of the tide

Met by chance

His life she would enhance

He looked into her eyes

And asked her to dance

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The mess

 

God help me

I am but a mess

Sad and alone

Feeling nothing but depressed

Anger swells like an infection untreated

Causing so much pain

No love do I gain

How can I be loved

When all I cause is pain

 

 

 

 

Cold and alone

 

The clock strikes four

I cannot go on anymore

My life feels as an unending chore

The end starts to begin

My head hits the cold floor

 

 

 

Just one day

 

If you were given just one day

To right all the wrongs

That you have made

If you only had twenty four hours

To live , before forever you will lay

If that was the case

What would you do

What would you choose

Tomorrow is never guaranteed

So fix today before

Tomorrow you lose

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Silent words

 

Silence can say it all

Too much can make

Even the strongest warrior fall

Screaming but all comes out as a silent call

Silence of death

Comes quickly as the leaves pouring down in fall

 

 

 

 

Raining tears

 

Tears fall down like rain

Nothing can stop the pain

Pain and agony

Gripping tightly around my neck

Choking of a chain

No more can I disguise

Pain I feel inside

Torment is to stressful to hide

Happiness I put aside

The stress I have embraced

The insanity I start to know

As my mind begins to race

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Perfect day

 

We had a perfect day

One free of all dismay

Although my ind decays

My love will forever stay

Do I believe in hope

If more days are like today

I do believe I may

 

 

 

 

 

Harder choice

 

Choosing to die

Is a simple choice

Choosing to stay is harder

For one can opt to end their life

As easy as the flipping of a dime

Choosing to stay

Means even if it feel like torture

You choose to stay

 

 

 

Only hear love

 

If we choose only to hear hatred

That is all we will know

If we choose to get upset

Than ugliness we will show

If we only offer negativity

Than from us only

Sorrow will flow

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Losing time

 

Words cannot describe

The pain that I feel

The worst part is never really believing it is real

It felt like just yesterday

Everything was good

Nothing was wrong

Now I have to accept

You don’t have very long

 

 

 

 

Staying pain

 

Life goes on but the pain stays

Nothing left to do

I can only pray

I want you to stay

Not if it means that you live in dismay

 

 

 

 

 

The rut

 

Stuck in a rut

It feel as if I am lost

Need to find my way

So that I can be free

This is the hope that I so desperately need

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oh I wonder

 

Where have we been

Where will we go

What will we see

What will we know

What will we hear

What will we say

It is time to enjoy the most

Out of each and every day

 

 

 

 

 

 

Forgive to be forgiven

 

Forgiveness is not always easy

Sometime it is very hard

Forgiving someone who your emotions they have scarred

To be forgiven we must forgive

Or else in never ending torment will we be forced to live

 

 

 

 

 

Live each day

 

Dry your tears

Forget your fears

Live your life

As though you had no more years

Make each moment count

To make sure our lives

To something amount

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Beating hearts

 

Love is caring

Love is kind

Love is understanding the others mind

Love does not hate

Love never forsakes

Love does not distaste

Love is not an option

It pulls you in like a current

The highest of stakes

 

 

 

 

 

Smiles are the best disguise

 

Trying to hide my pain that is inside

Trying to live on

I feel as though a part of me has died

Day by day

Swallowing my tears

I try to remember mine and his good years

I still can not believe that he is really not here

Wishing just for one more day

That I could have him near

I know as I am reading this

He is smiling down at me

The words I am reading I know he can hear

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Better world

 

Love and compassion

Hatred begins to decay

If we choose to show kindness

A better world

Will be made

If only for we saw it from others views

There would not be so much

Violence and despair

On the news

 

 

 

 

 

Tick tick

 

Tick tick

Tick tick

The time goes by

No turning back the lock

Once it has been opened

There is no going back

No reversing the clock

Once a year goes by

You never get it back

Enjoy each moment

As if it were

Your last

 

 

Lost limb

 

Losing a limb is what it feels like

Losing someone for whom you care

Too much to take in

Losing control and just shout

You try to hold it in the tears start to begin

You wish it did not happen

You wish they were still here thought running through your head

Of when they were near

 

 

The greatest waterfall

 

Tears fall down

Like a waterfall

Returns the water to the stream

Rest your head forget about the pain

Start to dream

Vivid pictures fill your mind

A calming melody

Peaceful thoughts appear

A distant memory

Take advantage of this time

Spent inside your head

Soon you will wake up

And your mind will fill with dread

 

 

 

 

 

Melody

 

Melody fills your head

The moment you contemplated the end

You try to calm down

The pain that does offend

Look at my life

What to which I strive

I look at my boy

And thank god that I am alive

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Deepest despair

 

 

Crying of despair

No one seems to care

Day by day

Stress causes me

To pull out my hair

I need some help to find me some peace

Hope in this world

I fear I will always cease

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Darkness

 

If the world was kind

The darkness we would put behind

If the world was ever so pure

We would love each other

Like it was not a chore

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dream vacation

 

Dream dream

The night away

Dream dream

Dream the pain away

Dream away

The sorrows of yesterday

Hope and pray

For a better day

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Presents given

 

I have a great life

I have a great loving wife

This game of life

I have won

God gave me the gift of my son

No better life could I live

No greater presents

Could god ever give

 

 

 

 

 

 

Scars

 

Time does not slow down

No matter who you are

Years that go by

Stay with you like a scar

Enjoy the time we have

On this earth

The time we have starting from our birth

Make the most out of today

Use each day for what it is worth

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All alone

 

I sit here alone

In my bed

As the never ending thoughts begin to fill my head

The pain is too much

My thoughts become heavy like lead

As my torment begins

I start to wish

That I was dead

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Only one

 

Where would we go

If we only had one choice

What would we say

If only one word

Were we allowed to voice

What would we do

If only one action

Was our only choice

What item would you keep

If all others you had to lose

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shout shout

 

Screaming on the inside

Nothing comes out

Crying all day

No one hears me shout

The pain I fear

Will never go away

I fear this torment

With me will

Forever stay

 

 

 

 

 

Read between the lines

 

Read between the lines

The friendship finally shines

Look between the the stars

Look past the deepest scars

Share a sweet song

Carry the note

Oh so ever long

Spend the day away

Leave your worries

Put them to lay

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Destined

 

Today will never last

Destined to become the past

Tomorrow is soon here

The strike of midnight

Soon to be here

The clock strikes 12

Tomorrow is finally here

 

 

 

Never owed

 

Tonight I thought before I slept

What if tonight was my last

What if tonight was all but the past

What if tomorrow’s morning never showed

Tomorrow you are never owed

 

 

 

 

 

Ease

 

Your love to me

More wealth

Than any money

That is made from trees

Your lover never does cease

Knowing this puts my mind at ease

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stay

 

I wish I had one more day

To tell you

The words I wish I could say

I wish I had one more hour

To spend with you

Hugging you I would stay

I miss you with all of my soul

Without you I feel

Like my life has a huge empty hole

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here

 

I had a dream that he was still here

Talking to me and holding me near

Waking up is now a sorrow

It is now my greatest fear

For when I wake up

I have to accept

That he is no longer here

 

 

 

Crumble

 

Time and time again

Where do I begin

The pain that never does end

Sleep is now my closest friend

Waking up is now what I dread

My comfort begins to crumble

Like bread

Every second I am awake

My life is full of dread

 

 

 

 

How can I

 

How can I see

With my eyes shut tight

How can I enjoy the day

When all I see is night

How can I laugh

When I feel is fright

How can l live

When each day

Is an ongoing fight

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Never ending loop

 

tears of desperation

Anger and defeat

Pain in my chest

Pulls me to my seat

Played on a loop

An en ending repeat

I try to look for hope

All I see is defeat

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Doomed past

 

Nothing ever lasts

Time always becomes the past

Everything doomed to change

Easiness out of range

Doomed to suffer

Stuck in never ending torture

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Calling out

 

Calling out for help

No one care to hear

Calling out so loud

No one around or near

Calling out my screams

Unheard

Screaming for help

No one hears a word

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Refrain

 

Stuck in pain

No happiness left

To gain

A repetitive chain

The OCD begins to take over

The rituals

I can not refrain

 

 

 

Always better

 

To miss is better

Than to have never known

To have loved

Is better than

A moment never shown

To hurt is better

Than to never care

But my dreams are better

Because in them

Your still here

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Speeding

 

Words to paper

Rhymes to a song

Put in a distraction

So your pain

Does not hurt so long

Chained in a reaction

Set in in time

The public’s reaction

Brain runs wild

Like a speeding car

My brain bursts

As the tires blow

From the traction

 

 

In range

 

Pain and discomfort

Lies and the hurt

Chaos and envy

The world never does change

Tired of the pain

It seems as though

Happiness will forever out of range

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Biggest lie

 

Try and try

Short lived

Forever destined only to die

Try and try

I begin to wonder why

As I fake a smile

And say that I am good

The biggest lie

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Standing still

 

Time stands still

Death begins to take it’s fill

Day becomes night

Darkness grows into sight

No more days

No more light

The life I have lived

Today I have lost the fight

I sink to my knees

As my surroundings

Vanish from my sight

 

 

Confide

 

Take her arm

By my side

In her my life

I will confide

Our lives

Together coincide

My life every day

She does enhance

Love or lose

Took the ultimate chance

Took her in my arms and asked her to dance

 

Dwell

 

Love and live

Need to forgive

Love and loss

Condolence I give

Remember the good

Forget the bad

Try not to dwell

On all the sad

Live life with no regret

Before the hands of time

Are set

 

 

 

Better

 

Acceptance gained

The pain however stays

I thought It would get better

But it is just as bad

As the first day

All I can do is cry

I know your in heaven

You can hear

When I pray

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Push on

 

Life is a game

Either you lose

Or you win

Some are set to fail even before they begin

If the odds are stacked up

High against you

That is just more

Of a reason for you to push on through

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Over Coming Disaster 

By Douglas Bourdon

 

 

 

Tears of sorrow

 

Thoughts run through my head

The many fears that I dread

My mind is a locked book not easy to be read

Pain in my eyes but my tears do not surface

Wallowing in my suffering

Hiding behind the curtains

Wanting to break free from this closed in cell

Banging on the door But no one hears me yell

Anguish and torture hatred and despair

I wish someone would save me from my own personal hell

 

 

Overload of thoughts

 

Thoughts go through my mind

Little comfort do I find

Overloaded with thoughts

An avalanche of tears

Too much to count

Too much to track

Things that attack me

The stabbing of my back

I try to get better

However still a cure do they lack

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Therapy

 

Sit in a chair

Asking for help

None do they give

Finding out soon this how I will live

Living in fear

Living in stress

Knowing not to expect anything less

Wanting a cure

None is in sight

Day by day I am slowly losing this fight

 

 

One pain at a time

 

Pain in my eyes

Tears show behind the well disguise

Tension flare

Showing itself like the dawn of the skies

Carrying on week after week

An end to my torment

The outcome is oblique

Trying to act like the world is not hell

I put on my disguise

I wear it very well

 

 

Did I

 

Did I upset someone

I do not know

So I must apologize

Sorry I must show

Keep on the act

Till I feel comfort

Then another trigger starts

I begin to suffer

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Glass

 

Glass glass , everywhere I see

Glass glass , why do you bother me

I should not be bothered

I should not fear

No matter what I feel it is always near

Tortured by it alone in my mind

I could forget the ritual

Give in I choose instead

Glass glass

Just you and me

Insanity I feel it creeping over me

 

 

Numb

 

I wash till my hands go numb

I wash till the blood drips down from my thumb

Washing so long

My hands start to crack and bleed

I cry to myself wishing I was freed

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Frozen in time

 

I remember the day like it was yesterday

Like it was not so long ago

Stress came over me

No relief to be shown

I felt like my world was torn

Something snapped inside

A piece of my brain torn

From that day on

My life has been a hell

Wishing I would die

Not able to yell

 

Wreck

 

It felt like time was not moving

Like the world was trapped in a never ending pause

I looked around and glass was all around

All over me covered in glass drowns

Stress to this day around me surrounds

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Close

 

Held me close when I cried myself to sleep

Kissed my arm

When I fell and was full of woes

Loves me for all that I am

She made me who I am

 

 

 

 

One day

 

If for one day

No sadness did we see

If for one day no pain did we meet

If for one day

The sky was not so gloom

The world would not feel like a never ending doom

 

 

 

 

 

 

When the world sleeps

 

When the world falls asleep

Does the world still go on

Or does the world choose to sleep along

For how would we know what the world does

When we close our eyes

Maybe when were fast asleep there is more beauty to the skies

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Where to go

 

What to do and where to go

What my life has in store

Yet to be shown

Should I go left or should I choose right

Should I choose to go towards the unknown

Should I seek greatness

Or content should I be

How much to wonder

What all is in store for me

 

 

Full of promise

 

World full of kindness

Lies that I was told

Gave in to this world

The deal that I was sold

Days turn into years

Growing older is my greatest of fears

Soon I shall fall into

The never ending slumber drawing near

 

 

 

End

 

One day this world is gong to end

We will see for our eyes

That no more time is there to lend

One day we will meet our final fate

Hopefully by then it has not been too late

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fear of the mind

 

If for one second

My mind was not full of fear

If for one minute

Death did not feel so near

If for one day

My life was not pain

Then maybe one day I would feel like I was sane

 

 

 

 

 

Yell yell

 

Yell yell

Argue back and forth

What is the outcome

To what is it worth

Instead of fighting

Maybe we should just talk

Then peaceful we would be

And pain we would be without

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When

 

When will this pain end

When will it cease

Will I only be free

Of madness the day I become deceased

I hope my pain ends soon

Sometimes I wish I would not wake up

From this dream I have been through

 

 

Spinning clock

 

Seconds go by

The pain never stops

Minutes fly by

The spinning of the clock

Day after day

The pain always stays

Day after day

I wish I could block the pain away

 

 

 

 

 

 

Roller coaster

 

Marriage is a roller coaster

It does not stay in one place

It has it’s ups and downs

Sometimes you feel your losing the race

Just hold on

Talk it out

The race will soon begin to slow down

Try not to dwell on the little things

The good things will come around

 

 

 

 

 

 

Greatest pest

 

Annoying a pest

Some days I wish I never woke from my rest

I hear those words

Day after day

Tears form from my eyes

The pain is delayed

I try to hold it in

Only so much can I hide

I wonder to myself

Would the world be better if I had died

 

 

Formation of sorrow

 

Tears form fast

They quickly fade

The tears might fade

The pain however stays

My eyes seem dry

If I said I was happy

That would be a lie

 

 

 

Clock set

 

Crying and upset

Comfort I have not met

My mind is like a clock

It has finally been set

Time to end this pain

Tears fall down like rain

My thoughts so tight

The choking of a bicycle chain

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yesterdays tomorrow

 

Today is yesterdays tomorrow

Yesterday has no time left to borrow

Take the time

Left this day

To make the most out of today

 

 

 

 

 

Tired of it all

 

Tired of the fear

Hatred of the pain

I annoy others

I start to feel my shame

I try to stop

My OCD will not let me

God please help me

 

 

 

 

Why oh why

 

Why was I born

If only to suffer

Why should I live in pain

When there is no cure

Why should each and every moment

Feel like a chore

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Page

 

Words to a page

Helps control the rage

Writing out my pain

Helps keep me sane

My own personal therapy

Still my suffering

Controls all of me

 

 

Time stops

 

Stop the time

Let my restless mind

Begin to unwind

Put myself at ease

The fear would cease

Dreams and hopes

I hold onto so dear

If for one minute

My life wasn’t controlled by fear

 

 

 

 

 

Lyrics of a dream

 

Dream a peaceful dream

Let your worries start to leave

Dream a better day

When all the troubles of the world

Will be yesterday

Dream a sweet song

A lyric strong enough

To carry all day long

Dream a love so pure

A love strong enough

That it will always endure

 

 

 

 

Light of my life

 

The way she lights up the room

The way she makes me realize

How lucky I am to have her

The way she makes the butterflies

In my stomach stir

The way she pulls me close in so easily like a lure

 

 

 

Stars align

 

Two hearts align

Star crossed lovers coincide

Brought together

Like the current of the tide

Met by chance

His life she would enhance

He looked into her eyes

And asked her to dance

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The mess

 

God help me

I am but a mess

Sad and alone

Feeling nothing but depressed

Anger swells like an infection untreated

Causing so much pain

No love do I gain

How can I be loved

When all I cause is pain

 

 

 

 

Cold and alone

 

The clock strikes four

I cannot go on anymore

My life feels as an unending chore

The end starts to begin

My head hits the cold floor

 

 

 

Just one day

 

If you were given just one day

To right all the wrongs

That you have made

If you only had twenty four hours

To live , before forever you will lay

If that was the case

What would you do

What would you choose

Tomorrow is never guaranteed

So fix today before

Tomorrow you lose

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Silent words

 

Silence can say it all

Too much can make

Even the strongest warrior fall

Screaming but all comes out as a silent call

Silence of death

Comes quickly as the leaves pouring down in fall

 

 

 

 

Raining tears

 

Tears fall down like rain

Nothing can stop the pain

Pain and agony

Gripping tightly around my neck

Choking of a chain

No more can I disguise

Pain I feel inside

Torment is to stressful to hide

Happiness I put aside

The stress I have embraced

The insanity I start to know

As my mind begins to race

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Perfect day

 

We had a perfect day

One free of all dismay

Although my ind decays

My love will forever stay

Do I believe in hope

If more days are like today

I do believe I may

 

 

 

 

 

Harder choice

 

Choosing to die

Is a simple choice

Choosing to stay is harder

For one can opt to end their life

As easy as the flipping of a dime

Choosing to stay

Means even if it feel like torture

You choose to stay

 

 

 

Only hear love

 

If we choose only to hear hatred

That is all we will know

If we choose to get upset

Than ugliness we will show

If we only offer negativity

Than from us only

Sorrow will flow

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Losing time

 

Words cannot describe

The pain that I feel

The worst part is never really believing it is real

It felt like just yesterday

Everything was good

Nothing was wrong

Now I have to accept

You don’t have very long

 

 

 

 

Staying pain

 

Life goes on but the pain stays

Nothing left to do

I can only pray

I want you to stay

Not if it means that you live in dismay

 

 

 

 

 

The rut

 

Stuck in a rut

It feel as if I am lost

Need to find my way

So that I can be free

This is the hope that I so desperately need

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oh I wonder

 

Where have we been

Where will we go

What will we see

What will we know

What will we hear

What will we say

It is time to enjoy the most

Out of each and every day

 

 

 

 

 

 

Forgive to be forgiven

 

Forgiveness is not always easy

Sometime it is very hard

Forgiving someone who your emotions they have scarred

To be forgiven we must forgive

Or else in never ending torment will we be forced to live

 

 

 

 

 

Live each day

 

Dry your tears

Forget your fears

Live your life

As though you had no more years

Make each moment count

To make sure our lives

To something amount

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Beating hearts

 

Love is caring

Love is kind

Love is understanding the others mind

Love does not hate

Love never forsakes

Love does not distaste

Love is not an option

It pulls you in like a current

The highest of stakes

 

 

 

 

 

Smiles are the best disguise

 

Trying to hide my pain that is inside

Trying to live on

I feel as though a part of me has died

Day by day

Swallowing my tears

I try to remember mine and his good years

I still can not believe that he is really not here

Wishing just for one more day

That I could have him near

I know as I am reading this

He is smiling down at me

The words I am reading I know he can hear

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Better world

 

Love and compassion

Hatred begins to decay

If we choose to show kindness

A better world

Will be made

If only for we saw it from others views

There would not be so much

Violence and despair

On the news

 

 

 

 

 

Tick tick

 

Tick tick

Tick tick

The time goes by

No turning back the lock

Once it has been opened

There is no going back

No reversing the clock

Once a year goes by

You never get it back

Enjoy each moment

As if it were

Your last

 

 

Lost limb

 

Losing a limb is what it feels like

Losing someone for whom you care

Too much to take in

Losing control and just shout

You try to hold it in the tears start to begin

You wish it did not happen

You wish they were still here thought running through your head

Of when they were near

 

 

The greatest waterfall

 

Tears fall down

Like a waterfall

Returns the water to the stream

Rest your head forget about the pain

Start to dream

Vivid pictures fill your mind

A calming melody

Peaceful thoughts appear

A distant memory

Take advantage of this time

Spent inside your head

Soon you will wake up

And your mind will fill with dread

 

 

 

 

 

Melody

 

Melody fills your head

The moment you contemplated the end

You try to calm down

The pain that does offend

Look at my life

What to which I strive

I look at my boy

And thank god that I am alive

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Deepest despair

 

 

Crying of despair

No one seems to care

Day by day

Stress causes me

To pull out my hair

I need some help to find me some peace

Hope in this world

I fear I will always cease

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Darkness

 

If the world was kind

The darkness we would put behind

If the world was ever so pure

We would love each other

Like it was not a chore

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dream vacation

 

Dream dream

The night away

Dream dream

Dream the pain away

Dream away

The sorrows of yesterday

Hope and pray

For a better day

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Presents given

 

I have a great life

I have a great loving wife

This game of life

I have won

God gave me the gift of my son

No better life could I live

No greater presents

Could god ever give

 

 

 

 

 

 

Scars

 

Time does not slow down

No matter who you are

Years that go by

Stay with you like a scar

Enjoy the time we have

On this earth

The time we have starting from our birth

Make the most out of today

Use each day for what it is worth

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All alone

 

I sit here alone

In my bed

As the never ending thoughts begin to fill my head

The pain is too much

My thoughts become heavy like lead

As my torment begins

I start to wish

That I was dead

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Only one

 

Where would we go

If we only had one choice

What would we say

If only one word

Were we allowed to voice

What would we do

If only one action

Was our only choice

What item would you keep

If all others you had to lose

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shout shout

 

Screaming on the inside

Nothing comes out

Crying all day

No one hears me shout

The pain I fear

Will never go away

I fear this torment

With me will

Forever stay

 

 

 

 

 

Read between the lines

 

Read between the lines

The friendship finally shines

Look between the the stars

Look past the deepest scars

Share a sweet song

Carry the note

Oh so ever long

Spend the day away

Leave your worries

Put them to lay

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Destined

 

Today will never last

Destined to become the past

Tomorrow is soon here

The strike of midnight

Soon to be here

The clock strikes 12

Tomorrow is finally here

 

 

 

Never owed

 

Tonight I thought before I slept

What if tonight was my last

What if tonight was all but the past

What if tomorrow’s morning never showed

Tomorrow you are never owed

 

 

 

 

 

Ease

 

Your love to me

More wealth

Than any money

That is made from trees

Your lover never does cease

Knowing this puts my mind at ease

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stay

 

I wish I had one more day

To tell you

The words I wish I could say

I wish I had one more hour

To spend with you

Hugging you I would stay

I miss you with all of my soul

Without you I feel

Like my life has a huge empty hole

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here

 

I had a dream that he was still here

Talking to me and holding me near

Waking up is now a sorrow

It is now my greatest fear

For when I wake up

I have to accept

That he is no longer here

 

 

 

Crumble

 

Time and time again

Where do I begin

The pain that never does end

Sleep is now my closest friend

Waking up is now what I dread

My comfort begins to crumble

Like bread

Every second I am awake

My life is full of dread

 

 

 

 

How can I

 

How can I see

With my eyes shut tight

How can I enjoy the day

When all I see is night

How can I laugh

When I feel is fright

How can l live

When each day

Is an ongoing fight

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Never ending loop

 

tears of desperation

Anger and defeat

Pain in my chest

Pulls me to my seat

Played on a loop

An en ending repeat

I try to look for hope

All I see is defeat

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Doomed past

 

Nothing ever lasts

Time always becomes the past

Everything doomed to change

Easiness out of range

Doomed to suffer

Stuck in never ending torture

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Calling out

 

Calling out for help

No one care to hear

Calling out so loud

No one around or near

Calling out my screams

Unheard

Screaming for help

No one hears a word

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Refrain

 

Stuck in pain

No happiness left

To gain

A repetitive chain

The OCD begins to take over

The rituals

I can not refrain

 

 

 

Always better

 

To miss is better

Than to have never known

To have loved

Is better than

A moment never shown

To hurt is better

Than to never care

But my dreams are better

Because in them

Your still here

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Speeding

 

Words to paper

Rhymes to a song

Put in a distraction

So your pain

Does not hurt so long

Chained in a reaction

Set in in time

The public’s reaction

Brain runs wild

Like a speeding car

My brain bursts

As the tires blow

From the traction

 

 

In range

 

Pain and discomfort

Lies and the hurt

Chaos and envy

The world never does change

Tired of the pain

It seems as though

Happiness will forever out of range

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Biggest lie

 

Try and try

Short lived

Forever destined only to die

Try and try

I begin to wonder why

As I fake a smile

And say that I am good

The biggest lie

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Standing still

 

Time stands still

Death begins to take it’s fill

Day becomes night

Darkness grows into sight

No more days

No more light

The life I have lived

Today I have lost the fight

I sink to my knees

As my surroundings

Vanish from my sight

 

 

Confide

 

Take her arm

By my side

In her my life

I will confide

Our lives

Together coincide

My life every day

She does enhance

Love or lose

Took the ultimate chance

Took her in my arms and asked her to dance

 

Dwell

 

Love and live

Need to forgive

Love and loss

Condolence I give

Remember the good

Forget the bad

Try not to dwell

On all the sad

Live life with no regret

Before the hands of time

Are set

 

 

 

Better

 

Acceptance gained

The pain however stays

I thought It would get better

But it is just as bad

As the first day

All I can do is cry

I know your in heaven

You can hear

When I pray

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Push on

 

Life is a game

Either you lose

Or you win

Some are set to fail even before they begin

If the odds are stacked up

High against you

That is just more

Of a reason for you to push on through
