My Tears

October 2nd, 2004

There’s nothing there to find
My hopes have disappeared
I could feel it
The misty tears running down my cheek
I tried to smile
But I couldn’t

I spun around
Feeling weak and dizzy
I knew I couldn’t change the world
I blinked but I couldn’t see
Everything was so blurry

[Chorus:]
Everyone’s so hard on me
Watching people tryna find out why
Blurry visions conquer me
Hope brings out my tears
Though I’ve gone through all these years

There’s nothing I can do
I can’t make a difference
Smiles are fading
I’m just waiting
I’m a waste of time
My life’s a waste of time

Hope is gone
Fear has come
Knowing I can never be number one
I laugh at myself
My life is fading

[Chorus:]
Everyone’s so hard on me
Watching people tryna find out why
Blurry visions conquer me
Hope brings out my tears
Though I’ve gone through all these years

I’m in a car
Running from my problems
My tears, my tears
Are streaming down my face

Water falling from the sky
The earth is crying too
I feel bad for the world
I’m lying to everyone

[Chorus:]
Everyone’s so hard on me
Watching people tryna find out why
Blurry visions conquer me
Hope brings out my tears
Though I’ve gone through all these years

[Chorus:]
Everyone’s so hard on me
Watching people tryna find out why
Blurry visions conquer me
Hope brings out my tears
Though I’ve gone through all these years

Alone…

I decided to post this throwback, as I found this hiding out in a writing assignment I kept from 2003. I can guarantee my writing has vastly improved in the last fifteen years! Also, I have absolutely no desire to be a singer, so let’s forget that line ever existed!

As an update to my followers, I am out of recent poetry, so expect some circa early 2000s popping up until I have new content!

Burning

August 13th, 2018

I’ve been siloed
You’re triggering my depression
I don’t know how to handle
All your passive aggression
You corned me
You robbed all my possibilities
You left me with nothing
But your hostility
Your actions differ
Then what you said were your intentions
When I wanted you to notice me
I got your inattention
This feeling is ineluctable
I’m overwhelmed by your censure
This building is filling
With nothing but tensure
I’m gasping for air
I need to respire
But this feeling won’t resolve
If I don’t step out of the fire
