#PoetryLovers: Demons.

Invisible but the effects unmissable,

Consistent in the way the pursue a fresh mind only to grind it down into nothing more than doubt,

Good fortune brings surface smiles while deep inside the happiness is slowly being chipped away,

Feeling fearless, 

Yet the demons stay, 

Pray’s on the highs and emphasises the lows,

Leaves you in a state of frustration with confusion as to why your feeling the felt emotion,

We all have them but a person’s own is the biggest battle,

To convince yourself that life is what you make it,

Stop dreaming dreams and take it,

While they take time to seek the source of your strength,

Go to great lengths to distort your vision,

When they whisper in your ear don’t listen,

Don’t let them force you towards a bad decision,

Limit your creations with no hope of salvation,

They don’t need to be seen to be felt and to be heard,

As hard as it is it’s our motivation they yearn,

Wired to function surrounded by dysfunction demons can’t shatter my protection,

A soul as deep as the oceans around us,

Keeping me afloat in this world drowning in sorrow,

Keeping me sane as they taunt my night time thoughts,

Yet no matter what, I always look forward to tomorrow.

#PoetryLovers: You.

It’s crazy the way to fazed me,

In a blink of an eye your character dazed me,

Lifted my shady thoughts,

Brought me to the sunlight,

Sunshine blessing us as we unwind,

Never have I felt so appreciated I appreciate it,

The words of wisdom and fountain of knowledge fuel my duality as you see the best of me,

The best in me realising it’s only me,

Flaws and all that’s what you told me,

Consoled me, shit it seems like this was meant to be,

Call it destiny I resist temptation to benefit me, myself and I that’s what it used to be,

Before you turned up and showed me there’s more to life than insecurity,

Stop and think is this another game?

Play with my emotions and toggle with my mind frame,

At first the burst of affection caught me of guard and I must admit I fell hard,

Lifted me when I was low,

The reason for my morning glow and my permanent smile on show,

It all made sense,

I finally found something real to heal the hurt I’ve endured endlessly,

Then you saw your own light that made you fight me,

Convinced that I wasn’t right like all the rest,

Stepped in the direction of the rest,

Clearly for the best in your eyes you left me wondering are all guys really the same?

Not in general just with me as an individual with a heart as big as lion heart but still none are real from the start,

Accept what I can’t change I fall back and leave you to be you,

Little did I know that meant no more you,

I realised what little you actually do,

I don’t know why I expected to be respected when every other time the concept was neglected,

Damaged,

I paint on the temporary smile, hold my head high and continue my lifestyle.

#PoetryLovers: Stay.

Please stay,

I mean every time you go you take away my new day,

Leave me locked up in memories,

Temporary moments that believe it or not meant the world to me,

Acknowledging your angle I accept the outcome,

Seen a lot of things come and go that made love unwelcome,

What can I say I feel the same way,

Been at rock bottom where the light is dim,

Looking up from within the dark depths I search for light as bright as your smile on a bad day,

When I’m in a bad way the simple words you say sooth the bruises of my pressures,

Allow me to do the same for you,

Be the name you call on, that shoulder to lean on,

But you led me on and now your gone,

They usually come and go and I’m willing to show them the way, but with you,

Please stay,

The gentle but still a let down was a burn,

A burn scolding my heart followed by heartache I can’t make sense of,

Can’t hold a grudge because the good deserve credit,

Yet credit is all I give and receive nothing,

Learning experience definitely so,

Learnt never to let go, never keep them emotions on show,

Stand firm and hold your own because love can’t be found but keeps getting lost,

As this draws to a close I want you to know even though your gone,

I didn’t want you to go but going seemed like the best way to go in the end.

#PoetryLovers: Our Generation

Why?

Why do the boys of today pursue the body instead of the mind,

High standards yet low earners,

Boy where’s your right?

And women losing themselves,

Trying to prove themselves to the people that made them lose themselves,

Layers of make-up slowly erasing themselves,

Feel, do you remember what that is?

Genuine emotion, real satisfaction,

Why aren’t we making self development the main development?

Making ourselves relevant instead of deviant,

These white collars aren’t right about us,

Do fuck all by us but the first to judge us,

A man’s ambition is the best recognition that credit is deserved,

A woman’s strength to rise above suppression, practice expression and make an impression,

They say money makes the world go around,

Does it whisper a sweet sound?

Let you know you’re alright, hold on, stand your ground,

And when your alone, money doesn’t change that,

The fact that you lay there at night with only demons in sight,

Yet the new day is bright, shine on,

Happiness is on the horizon, it won’t be long.

#PoetryLovers: Up’s and Down’s

I caught it shouldn’t have caught shit,

Let my guard slip which allowed it to catch me,

Same mistake twice, three times like the endless cries didn’t teach me,

Teach me that feelings defeat me,

My own fault I let you in open arms,

Ignoring alarms of the past,

The memories of the last,

You brought me up left me speechless,

Had me questioning whether I found the realist,

Can you believe this?

The mutual interests, the flattery the nicest,

Left me debating my own mindset,

Unlocked the sacred door to show affection more and I started falling,

Hit the ground face first knowing my actions were appalling,

To drop the ball and fall for the same thing,

You let me get lifted then left drifting wondering how someone drowns in a puddle,

A puddle so deep as the hurt begins to creep,

Seep through my aura,

Taking it out on the world around me when my own stupidity led me to be this persona,

I sought isolation as the best solution to avoid devastation,

Let my words flow as the best form of meditation,

Dancing with the clouds making clouds of stress fade before my eyes,

In my mind I go over the continuous lies being fed to me.

#PoetryLovers: Our Generation

Why do men pursue the body instead of the mind?
Go blind when their penis goes hard,
High standards, low earners,
Boy where’s your right?
And women losing themselves,
Trying to prove themselves to the ones that made them lose themselves,
Feel? Do you remember what that is?
That numbness in the centre of your chest, yes,
Making self development the main development is the only development,
The right mind makes the right decisions,
A mans ambition is the best recognition that credit is deserved,
A womans strength to rise above suppression, practice expression, make an impression,
They say money makes the world go around,
Does it whisper that sweet sound to you?
Let you know your alright,
Don’t give up that fight when you’re not alone,
But alone you are and money doesn’t change that,
Weed doesn’t change that,
You have to proceed that’ll change that,
The fact that you lay there at night with only demons in sight,
Yet the new day is bright, you gotta’ shine on,
Happiness is on the horizon,
It won’t be long…

#PoetryLovers: City Lights.

Beyond beauty my city is my city,

Where the streets are gritty but offer more than legality,

Street lights shining down on money-making deviance,

Bright city lights reminding me why I can’t leave this,

Grafting goes unnoticed,

Black people made the focus,

Yet a bankers bonus gets swept under the carpet,

A job market oppressing the youths of today,

Yet the government wonders why gangs won’t go away,

Why bloods shed, kids are dead and they can’t get ahead,

Bright city lights,

My heads channeled to stay ahead,

To stand out like a star, to change the views of the past,

My city is my city i’ll be sure to make it in this city,

Regardless of rejection, deception or pity,

Success preserves my dignity,

Dignity deserving of equal respect in my city.
