Default Poems

Here's a couple of poems I've written that I decided to record in video form. I'll post the text version as well. I dunno why my voice comes out so quietly, it doesn't seem that way in the recording, just in the final edit. I need to work on it.



Torn Heart:

You took my heart and tore it up
You smashed me with your words
Took away my mind, my soul
Banished them to the end of the earth

I was a package ready to be unravelled
Open to possibilities and the new
To you I was no better than trash
To use not reuse, left me cold and blue

I listened to my heart, yet didn’t hear
Fell through the cracks of pain
Held your words soft as silk
Was left to cry, left out in the rain

My hopes rose then were lost
From the light into darkness
A flower trying to grow and bloom
Petals falling, crumbling brown like rust

I’ll take my heart and I’ll fix it
Glue in the cracks, patch the holes
Pretend like all is back to normal
Your love was fake; I’m ready to play a role.

This one I posted already, but wanted to include it in this thread.

It's TR fan fiction:



Alone in the Dark of Heart and Mind:

Alone in the dark of heart and mind.
I look for a way out, to leave the past behind.

Wading through a swamp of memories
I may as well be climbing mountains and trees.

My history is dense, my future unclear
I hunt for a truth like I'd hunt for deer.

With caution I'll move pace by pace.
Take my time, I don't know what I could face.

Each new thought is another turn in a maze
I Need to find a way out of this haze.

I step into night when I need to find day
I struggle to find the right way.

My way ahead is like a scraggy wall
I'll need to take a leap of faith, try not to fall

If I can find courage, hope and sense
Maybe I'll break down this lonely fence.

I feel like I'm wondering into a dark cave
To save myself, I must be brave

To stop myself from being trapped
I can't let my energy be zapped.

I must fight to beat this confusion
Use my senses to see past an illusion.

Alone in the dark of heart and mind
To myself, I must be kind.

I hope you like them. I'm hoping t get more than just 2 views .
