Recession

Standard

this poem wont be about the economy or government
so you can cancel the premature rebuttal sense
this is a story about a mans life
about how he lost everything including his child and wife
they were on vacation in a small town feeling airless
they were filled with love and happiness and were almost careless
until the final day of the trip they encountered some danger and bad luck
things went wrong faster than they could handle
the happiness they felt began to dismantle
it was replaced with pain and tears
it was like this day became their biggest fear
smoke appeared as fire erupted stories above them
all the man wanted to do was tell his family he loved them
but his screams were coming from too far away for the child and wife to hear them
as the first building fell and the father’s life came to an end
as the second building fell with the wife and child standing to close ensured the family that they would soon be together again

Pyramids

Standard

we have no points in which we meet
all were worried about is defeat
so we fight for no reason pushing it all away
i tried but i wish that was something you could honestly say
i love you and i tell you every day
i stopped getting a response a while ago
i wish i could find a way to let you know
that i wish you never let me go
because the things that you know
dont seem to be enough
im lost in my heart
stranded in my feelings
i wish there were some form of healing
i wish the happiness could spark
but i knew that it wouldnt from the start
i still chose to jump in this and i dont know why
we couldnt make a pyramid and your distance emotionally is the reason why

Things I Cant Do

Standard

as years pass and i think about the last time i saw you
i feel more like a baby that has no one to crawl to
i miss everything about you and it saddens me because i cant see you
i cant hear you
i cant feel you
youre gone and im starting to feel like id love to be too
youre up above and i guess its for the best
you used to be what protected what was in my chest
we would talk until the sun went away
we were falling deeper in love day by day
the day i lost you is the day i changed
i think about the fact that no one else knows about you and i think its a shame
thats probably why my mind is in the shape that its in now
i used to smile at the thought of you but now sometimes i forget how
i still wish you were here
when i close my eyes i still see your last tear
i think about how much i changed inside
i dont think i could tell anyone how much you meant to me no matter how hard i tried
you were what held me together
you told me i was what kept you warm as if i was your sweater
the last words you said to me are very hard for me to repeat
and sometimes in some nights all i look forward to is nights full of sleep
because i can see you
and hear you
and in those dreams i can feel you
i just wish i could open up to someone and reveal you
maybe i will one day
not anytime soon because i dont know what i would say
one thing i do know is ill never manage to forget your face

Suspense

Standard

scared of the voices he hears he hides himself from reality
scared of falling apart he tries to ignore the presence of emotional gravity
he thinks that if he opens up he’ll fall and break
he thinks if he tries to love someone all he’ll get back is hate
his past is hidden
his happiness has started to diminish
he sits by himself and talks to his thoughts
he runs away from authority in fear of being caught
to him emotions are dangerous
to him nothing in his mind can be explained to us
he fights his own thoughts when negative ones arise
he never gets over the pain no matter how many tries
hes stuck and damaged
thinks theres no way to manage
but the voices are telling him there are some things he can use to his advantage

Sounds

Standard

i hear your voice but i cant see you
i hope my thoughts make it from me to you
because theres alot ive been holding in
i cant even find a slight reason to grin
i dont think i could handle it if what we have reached its “Fin”
the things ive said in hopes that you hear me
are bringing back emotions that i thought were dissapearing
the love that i had for you and thought was extinct
is coming back with a vengence and has attacked me without giving me a chance to think
i hope you see this somehow
i hope the next time i hear the sound
of your voice it says that you loved how my poem to you sounds

Cemented

Standard

the fact that shes by my side is the reason i havent quit

when i was falling apart she came along and acted as some form of cement

she holds me together and never lets me break

if i ever lost her i dont think id know how much i could take

shes my everything and more

ive never felt love like this before

shes all i need and all i want

i love this so much its so hard not to flaunt

when we talk i smile

when we dont i frown

id walk thousands of miles to bring the forwn on her face down

love is only love when you dont have to question it

and we both have no doubts so this must be it
