Dangerous things that haunt your mind
Tend to keep you up at night
A burden, a promise that you have to keep
But it’s burning in the back of your throat
The words are heavy on your tongue
Ready to spring out into the unknown.
Now a friend notices that something’s wrong
You figure, you might as well tell someone
A cruel game of Chinese Whisper’s begin
That spreads like wildfire
Catching onto everything.
You betrayed their trust and now they know.
Secrets aren’t secret for very long.
Hey guys I know I haven’t posted in a while but I’ve been spending quite a lot of time on Wattpad writing. Most of my poetry is on there now but alas I haven’t given up on this blog just bare with me. :)
Thanks for reading!
I don’t look where I am
Just where I’m getting too
Why stay in reality?
When I can drift up to Cloud Nine
Perch there and look down
At the world I left behind.
The tranquility is mesmerizing
But I can’t stay here forever
There’s plenty of time
To dream and hope
When I close my eyes.
*Morpheus is waiting for me
Wiping the slate clean
On my bad day
By creating the perfect landscape.
Also here’s a link to my Wattpad page which has some of these poems and more as well as a story I’m working on! http://www.wattpad.com/user/pixiepolly
You get what you’re given in life
It’s true when they say
That no good deed goes unpunished
You wonder why you even try
What part of the Bigger picture
Includes your life
Constantly out of the loop
If you could would you
Runaway from everything?
But then you’d be giving up on it all.
And I never pegged you for a quitter
The Underdog, Quirky One
Your time has finally come
You’re not a sheep like the rest of them
Go against the current
After all, like they say
If you follow the crowd
You’ll never make your own way.

Venom in your words
A sneer upon your lips
Your angers contagious
Your poison infects my bloodstream
As you fire your insults one by one
Whoever’s in your way
You choose to victimize
Making them your next prey
And when you’re done
You carry on
Whilst they are left to suffer.
Some of them are immune to you
Thicker skins than the others before
Stronger, more agile
They tread on your tail
Rather than ushering you away
They aren’t warned off
By your colourful spots
Or the dangerous glint in your eye.
They don’t fall for your tricks
Or are consumed by your hate
Instead they stand up to your egotistic
Ways and make your poison
Soaking up the sun
In the garden we lay
Listening to music
We constantly replay
Our favourite loud rock band
In the BBQ scented air
Giggling as I realise
I’ve burned – yet again.
And when the sun goes in
We hang our heads in defeat
Pick up the towels and earphones
Heat inside and retreat.
A rush before we run out of time
Hair and make up
Don’t make me look like Frankenstien
Limo’s, champagne, I don’t know where to look
There’s so many camera’s flashing
And photos being took
Arrival is awkward to say the least
Off come the heels
I’m dancing madly with bare feet.
Teachers grinding on each other
I don’t know where to look
I wonder if they’ll remember tomorrow?
Sweets, Prom nominations and our King and Queen
We all just stare and wonder who it is?
Ending the night with the Titanic theme song
Looking over and watching my best friend slow dance
Aaah and Oooh we all say together
It’s a night that no doubt, I’ll always remember.
I’m the one in the black dress and blonde hair :)
I have feelings and so do you
We keep them bottled up
But then they leak through
I see the drawn expression that is never replaced
The empty look that clouds your face
Your system reboots
And momentarily I catch
A glimpse of the human in you
You are not mechanic
You are allowed to feel
That cavity is not empty
Like the tin man
You always had a heart.

I guess I found your weak point
The chink in your otherwise fool proof armour
The words tumbled out of my mouth
In the heat of the moment
And I can’t take them back now
The cracks in your otherwise placid behaviour
You broke down like I never expected
I stood there numb as you ran to your haven
Even now I can hear the sobs that echo through the walls
Ingrained in my mind
I’m so sorry I found your kryptonite.

Little miss daydreamer
Lost in her own world
Think I don’t understand
But I can hear every word.
Twiddling with my hair
I bat my eyeslashes and blink
Away with the fairies
Or is that just what I let you think?

In the summer she paints the roses red, white and yellow.
Watches on as others pick her daisies to make
It makes her smile as a little girl
Takes a violet to put in her hair
Her garden of Eden
Is eternal here in this season
Where the beauty never ends.
