So, here we go... Welcome to the City of Lies. Welcome to my world, my city, my house. I don't live in it, I die in it each and every day...

As I walk down the street

In the City of Lies

I think about the pain

Hiding my cries

***

Stopped for a moment

Looked at my shadow

To see it grow large

And burst in flames.

***

Took a look at the mirror

To see my bloody tears

Looked around me

And saw the demons of my fears.

***

Struck to the ground

By unspeakable force

Lying there, helpless

Watching the horrors…

***

You gave me a hand

And when I thought its fine

You broke my wrist

Such a crime

***

Cut me open, with a rusty blade

All over the street – flood of my blood

***

Took a heavy brick

And hit my fingers – one by one

Me, screaming

Till you’re done.

***

Bleed, break, hit, cut

No matter what

At the end, I’ll stand up

***

Still alive, but breathing hard

Listening to the sounds of the gun

It shoots, bullets hit my heart

I’m dead, it’s no longer fun

***

Finally I’m awake, but the nightmare stays:

Welcome to the City of Lies

Wow. Emotionally draining, yet beautiful word choice. Nice work Alek, you presented great personal voice, and told a story that was easy to understand and relate to. Keep it up, because you seriously rock. And thanks for letting me know that you wrote another poem. :)

You wrote such an amazing poem.Im sorry for everything that you are going trough.I am.Really.Ja odlazim s Booksie,jer mi se sve raspada.Nista nije ostalo.Ako umrem,bit cu najsretnija osoba na svijetu.Zivot mi vise ne vrijedi ni lipe...Samo hocu umrijet i to je sve.Hvala ti na svemu...Ajde cuvaj se i probaj biti sretan.Good luck.

Alek you seriously have such talent its not even comprehendable.

I loved this.
So meaningful, so straight forward.
You definitly got the idea.

Its darkness reflects on you
And that itself is sad
Find relief in writing friend
It will help you live
