I Remember
(written Sunday January 23, 2005)

Forced to spend time
You're not my friend
Don't pretend to be
Those glares cut thru
And I hear when
You don't talk to me

(ch)
I remember the times
You weren't there
I remember the days
You forgot about me
And I remember

It's my time
And I choose to not
Be around you
In denial I was
For so long

(ch)

And I hear when
You don't talk to me
And I know when
You discredit me

(ch)

And I remember...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I wrote this about the conflicts with my teammate Nick...another thing I wrote earlier that you might've already read was about him as well.

January in North Dakota
(written 1-21-05)

My heart is as cold
As the snow on the ground
Outside there's not a sound
Like the silence in my mind
I can't get it
Together

(ch)
It's a cold, cold night
In North Dakota
The brisk wind
Snaps at my face and I
Shiver
Will I feel again?

The snow flurries
On the streets
Confused
About the thoughts in my head
I'm staying in bed
Until I can get it
Together

(ch)

The wind is here
And it's a cold, cold night
In North Dakota
I will never feel again

Solstice in Seattle
(written 1-14-05)

Celebrating this holiday
When Jesus was born
Sometimes,
It's too hard
Memories of the years
(and I) wish I could forget

(ch)
(so I'll) point my face to the sky
And concentrate there
On the solstice
Solstice in Seattle

Believing in things beyond
(and) life after death
Sometimes,
It's too hard
Reminiscing the past
Go by in my head

(ch)

Living for Him
Further and further I go
Sometimes,
It's too hard
Walking down the streets
Of diversity

(ch 2x)

Untitled Friday January 14, 2005

Don't look at me
If you'll only judge
Don't talk to me
If you'll only label
'Cause I've seen
And I've heard
More than you'll know

(ch)
I am a girl (spoken)
Tryin' to make it
I am a woman (spoken)
Who's made it
Won't let you break it

Don't belittle me
I don't need that
Don't say to me
What you think you know
'Cause you're nothing
To me
So let me be what I am

(ch)

I don't want you
In my life
If you take and take
Never give
No more of this
Don't stare
If you don't really see me

'Cause I've made it
And as a woman
I won't let you break it
Just don't
I'm a girl

God, I'm glad I found this community. I really REALLY need some help. I'm writing this song for a friend of mine for a book shes writing and I'm so attached to it I can't figure out if its crap or if its any good. If you don't mind and you have the time could somebody read it and share their thoughts...I would really appreciate it and I would kill for a good suggestion. this song is sad, real sad, but its also got a lot of rage and anger throughout it. Thanks so much...well.....here it is

Scream
I'm so consumed in all my gloom
I haven't noticed the impending doom
I wanna scream ( x2)
My voice is locked deep inside
where my self confidence hides
I wanna let it out! I'm gonna let it out!
I'm shouting
no one hears me
I'm alone
I'm unknown
and I'm on my own
Why can't you hear me scream?! ( x2)
My frustration builds
My heart is sealed
I just can't take it anymore
I don't know what I'm yelling for
My mascara is running
My tears are falling
My heart is wrenched in pain
But you don't even notice I'm here
I'm gonna Scream!!!! ( gonna scream)
Have you looked my way
at all today?
Have you noticed my bloodshot eyes
or my heavy sighs?
You were my friend
the one I could depend
Where are you now?!!?
I'm in a crowded room
but I guess I shouldn't assume
anybody cares
Where are you know!!?!
I'll make you hear me
You just can't leave me
I'll scream

sooo....what do you think?

Hello, I'm Mark, and I've been searching for something just like this for a while...just an "Open-Mic" style communty to share my crappy poetry...poetry that I call crappy...here's one of my latest accomplishments:

"The moon lies..."

I.

The moon lies
Upon distant trees
It's face shadowed by the Earth
The dark side mostly showing,
Just a sliver of yellow
Shines in the night.
The snow falls, as the moon sleeps
Keeping that one eye open,
Always observing
Always alone.
Striving to one day take the light from the sun
Never succeeding
Never quite so bright.
The moon lacks that ambition
That passion
The sun possesses
And it lacks the burning fires that would produce light,
Merely reflecting the suns rays insead.

II.

The moon lies
To new love
Keeping the look
Of a romantic man
His passion hidden
Shadowed by the Earth.
When really
He is a jealous rogue
Stealing the light when he can
To steal the hearts of the lovesick
He murders that feeling within
That feeling of lonliness we do love so well,
We, us, everyone,
The emotional masochists.

III.

The moon lies
On clouds, with bleeding wings,
Soft frozen blood
Of a heartless beast
Flutters to the cold, dark earth.
It's soul devoured
By empty night.
The yellow moon tries to fly
But only gets a few inches off,
Before falling,
Down, Down,
Down through the cold Earth
Finding it's place among the dead stars.

IV.

The moon lies
Creating false images
Of searchlights
Scanning the sky
From dark smog clouds
That glow red
Over an abandoned post.
Creating false beauty
From pollution of this world
Pollution the soul creates.

V.

The moon lies
Sleeping silently
Behind clouds newly forming.
Ashamed, it hides its face
It, alone, can prosper through sadness.
We gaze up, hoping to catch a glimpse,
Hoping to see this dark eyed wonder.
We cannot see the moon,
Yet still it gazes down upon us,
Through the clouds it peers.
In shadow we stand,
Light from the sun is blocked by the moving body below,
We have one night where we can work
Unseen by the moon,
Unhindered by it's rays,
Unindulged by it's false beauty.
And we are free,
For one night.


Please offer some criticism, I'd like to see what people think about it.

It could be the way you smile
Or may be the smell of your hair
It's what keeps me around for a while
And hoping that you'll never let me go
Because its the way you look into my eyes
That makes me have to catch my breath
It's the way you take me by surprise
And it makes me want to stay forever
If I could
I'd make the sun shine
just for you
The ocean waves would crash
in time with your heartbeat
And for every breath you take
another star would shine in the sky
If I could
You know I would
Because you're so worth it
It could be the taste of your lips
Or even the just a touch of your hand
believe it or not, my heart skips
And the same feeling lasts forever
Sometimes I feel you can read my mind
You see everything past my butterfly eyes
It's people like you who are so hard to find
It makes me wish you could stay forever
If I could
I'd make the sun shine
just for you
The ocean waves would crash
in time with your heartbeat
And for every breath you take
another star would shine in the sky
If I could
You know I would
Because you're so worth it

[mood |complacentcomplacent]
[music |The blood brothers]

Its night at its finest
a glass monologue
shattered from a sputtering woman
too afraid to turn her head

Its lonely when its best
attracting men like flies
and tourniquets
tonight we dance
not on the stars but in our beds

Under the fictitious desperation
we created when we lost

we tried

and failed, but there is another way

And when the trees do sing
of a future bright and clear
you will realize my hand was fine
as it wrote
i dissapeared
