YOU ARE A GIFTMany moments I have spent,
Attempting to conjure the perfect gift,
But how could I possibly begin to stress,
All the splendor and beauty you possess?
A photograph to capture my hearts content,
Content from all the gifts you've sent,
Or a drawing with hues of colorful celebration,
To portray the thrill and excitement of your next deviation.
Neither medium, nor any other, could ever explain,
As you are a gift brought into this world far from plain,
Kind and generous, humble and honest,
Supportive, loving, and with talent you've been blessed.
With your birth, the world shed grateful tears,
And wish you many prosperous years,
Filled with serenity, love, laughter and blithe,
And to slumber every night, under the stars without strife.
YOUR DEMISEWith every day that passes me by
Frustration, I gather, comes from deep within
With every thought of every action ever taken
By you and what you consider generous or fair
Fully cognizant of your malicious intentions
As the icy heart that lives within you festers.
Beyond comprehension how it is possible that you remain standing
Standing in a pool of your own selfishness
Able to breathe, to smile, to sleep,
When most would feel the slow, deep penetrating dagger
That enters deeper and deeper into the skin of the victimized
YOU manage to slumber undisturbed by strife.
Thoughts of your reprehensible arrogance
Have kept me up for countless nights
As I succumbed to the reality of every lie told
Of every pretentious motive I now revoke the power given
When I gave you my heart to allow for healing
And finally discard my frustration, my anger, my agony.
THE LEGENDARY GIRLSuch innocence deeply hidden in her
The Legendary Girl,
Her long charcoal hair, curls with such confusion,
The dark clothing that envelop her
Make this girl a mystery,
Her home is the unknown world
Where the lost souls gather,
Her innocence is draped underneath
As she holds a cigarette in one hand
While she takes a swig from her big J.D.
The midnight moon calls her down dark lonely streets
As she ponders through her depths of innocence
And such innocence is deeply hidden
Her silence screams out all her secrets
The souls watch her from afar
Intensely lost in her enigmatic world of the unknown
Sitting around us but in another land
Where nothing matters
Where no one can touch her
Not a single soul or human being can understand
This Legendary Girl...
HIDEOUSIn the shower I try to erase,
All the horror that I must face,
Scrubbing the dirt and hoping to glow,
Wishing for my beauty to show.
Look into a mirror only to see,
Why I am so hideous to me,
There are many people whose opinions may differ,
But as they share, my muscles only get stiffer.
Uncomfortable to hear as I will never believe,
Anything more than you are trying to deceive,
I've tried many times to concede your benevolence,
Can't help but to think it's only malevolence.
I look again when the fog clears,
Only to have to face my fears,
It wasn't the fog that made me so hideous,
But the truth that my existence is heinous.
