Sounds of the City

Outside his window the world goes by

Lost in the confusion he wonders why

The sound of a train and its sorrowful horn

Brings within a saddening scorn

Cars drive by with a roaring sound

Unable to move he cannot be found

Within his prison he sits in pity

While outside his window the cries of the sounds of the city

Trapped by his unraveling mind

Its only a matter of time

Soon the world will be nothing but silence

At the end of his defiance

Keeper of Her Heart

Once upon a time
He was the keeper of her heart
Held tightly at the start
Eventually that heart did stray
And now it has gone away
Taking it for granted was his crime
Now alone he will spend his time
For he is no longer the keeper of her heart
And now they are apart

Prompt from: https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/2019/04/01/april-writing-prompts-2/

All Alone

Sitting in my room all alone
As my world crashes around me
All those I love have turned away
No one to trust no one who cares
So I sit all alone pondering my future
It grows dimmer and dimmer by the hour
Soon in will fade to black
And with that there is no coming back.


This maybe my last post for a while or maybe forever. I don’t know. Thank you all for reading my stuff. Goodbye…

Misty Morning Melancholy

As the darkness of night fades away
Before the brightness of the coming day
She sits upon a bed made for two
Another night she has made it through
Counting each moment, they are apart
Her heart was his from the very start
Knowing that the time grows short
The words of his love upon which she finds support
Upon this morn she finds no jolly
It is nothing but another misty morning melancholy

#TuesdayTunes – Pop Evil “Torn To Pieces”

Wow, such a powerful song, that’s why I put the one with the lyrics. This song just hit me hard. I think back to my big sister, she was the one that really left an imprint on me in so many ways. I still think would she be proud of what her little brother has become. I don’t know if she really realized how important she was to her little brother. I hope she knows, but it does sometimes I still feel torn to pieces.

The Dream of All Dreams

A thousand miles away

He sits alone in his room

Waiting for that special day

When their time together can resume

 

The thoughts of what is to come

Drives him forward through each day

As he feels his world come undone

He knows he must pray

 

His heart for her has always been smitten

Even though she may not believe it true

The day they met it was written

She made his zest for life brand new

 

So, he sits and waits alone

Sometimes just wanting to scream

He remembers his love back home

Which is the dream of all dreams

Apart

Being apart

Has been hard from the start

Leaving you alone

A sin I must atone

By your side

Is where I should reside

My past mistakes

Left you with heart aches

Our love is honest and true

But what can I do

Feeling you slipping away

Praying you will stay

Without you

I am through

Hoping you’re still there I pray

Knowing I should have stayed

Hoping it’s not too late

To set our love straight

The Absence of Her

It was four years ago today

That you left and passed away

A lifetime we spent together

I thought you would be around forever

When I was little you protected me from the monsters at night

That would come out when there was no light

As I got older you told it to me straight

If I was acting a fool you let me know post haste

When I was in trouble you were always there for me

You were the best big sister you could be

Always there when I asked

You were there to help so fast

Now you are gone and my heart breaks

Pain so great I don’t know if I can take

The absence of her still hurts in my soul

Without her in my life I will never be whole

For my big sister Donna, I miss you each and everyday.  You were the best big sister a boy could ask for.

Lonely

The miles between you and I are hard to take

A decision I made was an awful mistake

Leaving behind what I love and adore

For a chance at something, what for

Each day that passes brings me near

To the one I cherish my dear

Home in your arms I belong

I just wish it wouldn’t take so long

My life with you is what I desire

To be with you I shall never tire

You my love are my one and only

Away from you my life is lonely

Amethyst Tears

A day like no other
Upon waiting for her lover
The one in her life that made everything right
Praying with all her might
Wishing for his return
For that is what she yearned
Until the news broke
The words she feared the most was spoke
It was her worst fear
All she could cry was her Amethyst tears
