The ripples in the water
Have gotten larger and larger
The calm relaxing stupor
Of the lazy candlelight
Becoming a full blown fire.
And all I can advise
Is that you take it all in your strife
Because I’m not the type that’s used to this
You’re use of silly words
When you’re to scared to use a fist.
With every jab fought hiding behind a wall
My friend I hate to give
You a wake up call
But I really
To the front of the queue
And all over you
Sidelined once again
I wouldn’t really mind
But I know she doesn’t care.
The type of girl who can make out with him for thirty seconds
Brush it off
And call it an indiscretion
Flip a coin
And decide on you for that day
Once again pushing me out of the way.
And yeah she’s totally “punk”
A gamer girl who will show you what’s up
Tell it like it is
Excluding the small print
Because when she’s used him all up
And she’s gotten her way
That’s when I’ll sit here and say
I tried to warn you
Here I was all along
Now you’re sitting on the corner of heart torn and the friend zone.
Lyrics in a song
Sing all that can’t be said
As true as any alcohol tainted brain
Unfiltered with anxiety and dread*
Telling everything that’s been bottled up
Uncorked, its contents empties out
It’s honest words
With a backing track
That we play relentlessly on repeat
Somber, enlightening, happy and sad
And all the other seven dwarves whose names you can remember.
It’s hard not to relate
With a beat, guitar or violin
We don’t have to bare our hearts
But let the rhythm of someone else’s voice
Do it for us.
* Until the next day that is haha 😀
Pulled the trigger without warning
And blew me to smithereens.
Well, I’m not the guilty party
I hope the ghost of your actions
Plague and follow you around.
Because I was an innocent
A new born foundling
Who you wrongly accused
With your torrent of cusses
That left me dumbfounded and baffled.
Tried to play me like those before
And failed to notice that I had a holster of my own
That I could brand you in my own way.
Don’t attempt an apology
My memories long and I remember these things.
The dazzling frost and blinding lights
The sparkle that is present in my eyes.
This time I promise not to run away
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.
