To Singer with Love

March 27, 2019 at 9:59 am (Poetry)

To the Singer in the corner
You hold so many memories
You once helped to create,
so many lovely pieces.

To the Singer in the corner
I am sorry, you are not used
We love you dearly
You are valued beyond what you created.

To the Singer in the corner
If only you could speak
of what tales and stories that you keep!

About the poem: This is a re-edit of a poem that I wrote earlier in the course. The Singer Sewing machine that belonged to my Gran, since 1968, is now sat in the corner of my dining room. I am unsure about switching it on, it case I break it.

Memory and needle

March 27, 2019 at 9:57 am (Poetry)

To sew and sew
Where is the needle?
For I can’t sew and sew
Until I remember where is the needle?
From memory you hide
Until, my finger you find!

(it made me smile if nothing else!)

Me and tinnitus

March 27, 2019 at 9:57 am (Poetry)

I’m feed up of being me!
Of feeling useless and broken!

How do I look, to you?
To me I feel lost, broken and confused?

You look at me confused?

You don’t understand how alone I feel right now,
How isolating it is for me, to have this noise!
What you are seeing is a person looking blankly at you.
You’re not seeing me or my problem.
Are you seeing me as the problem, or the thing thats not providing the solution?

I feel lost, lonely, invisible, confused, scared, bewildered
I’ve isolated myself, cause I think that being by myself will help
But who is that going to help? It isn’t actually helping me at all!

You don’t know this, but it would be great to hear the sound of silence
To me silence would actually be golden
Anything but the whirl of tinnitus!

Wind

September 25, 2018 at 1:26 pm (Poetry)

I wish I was the wind
So strong and so free
I wonder if the wind
is ever scared and so weak
I wonder is the wind
ever thinks about the damage it causes?
is every sorry for the trouble it makes?
or is the wind just happy to be strong and free?

I feel lost

May 27, 2018 at 4:29 pm (Poetry)

Wrote 12 May 2018 @ 10:25pm

I feel lost
alone
confused
and broken

I hurt but not where
I feel everything and nothing
all at once

I’m helpless, unforgiven
useless
What can be done?
I don’t know
I just don’t know

Linkin Park’s – It’s easier to run

April 11, 2018 at 8:26 am (Poetry)

I have this going round in my head today!
Life is just a pain, you pick yourself up and then from nowhere something knocks you over again!

It’s easier to run
Replacing this pain with something numb
It’s so much easier to go
Than face all this pain here all alone

Something has been taken from deep inside of me
A secret I’ve kept locked away
No one can ever see
Wounds so deep they never show
They never go away
Like moving pictures in my head
For years and years they’ve played

If I could change I would take back the pain I would
Retrace every wrong move that I made I would
If I could stand up and take the blame I would
If I could take all the shame to the grave I would
If I could change I would take back the pain I would
Retrace every wrong move that I made I would
If I could stand up and take the blame I would
I would take all the shame to the grave

It’s easier to run
Replacing this pain with something numb
It’s so much easier to go
Than face all this pain here all alone

Sometimes I remember the darkness of my past
Bringing back these memories I wish I didn’t have
Sometimes I think of letting go and never looking back
And never moving forward so there’d never be a past

If I could change I would take back the pain I would
Retrace every wrong move that I made I would
If I could stand up and take the blame I would
If I could take all the shame to the grave I would
If I could change I would take back the pain I would
Retrace every wrong move that I made I would
If I could stand up and take the blame I would
I would take all the shame to the grave

Just washing it aside
All of the helplessness inside
Pretending I don’t feel misplaced
Is so much simpler than change

It’s easier to run
Replacing this pain with something numb
It’s so much easier to go
Than face all this pain here all alone

It’s easier to run
If I could change I would take back the pain I would
Retrace every wrong move that I made
It’s easier to go
If I could change I would take back the pain I would
Retrace every wrong move that I made I would
If I could stand up and take the blame I would
I would take all the shame to the grave

Confused

February 20, 2018 at 3:58 pm (Poetry)

I am a confusion
enclosed in doubt
lost in the gravity
of mistrust and lies!
I am lost in the darkness
afraid to be in the light
not knowing who to turn to!
No-one can see me,
only the darkness!

Not Strong Enough!

September 21, 2017 at 3:40 pm (Poetry)

Is this how it feels to be lost?
Is this how it feels to be alone?
What do they want?
Why is this now?
I am lost and confused.
I don’t care, but I care too much!
I don’t want to feel, but I feel everything!
I don’t want to be here, but I can’t leave!
I just want to be treated fairly.
But no-one sees me!
They just see someone who will do everything, whilst everyone does nothing.
I’m not strong enough to carry on!

Extreme – God isn’t Dead?

October 11, 2016 at 7:07 am (Poetry)

For some reason I have this going round in my head. I’ve not heard anything from Extreme in years, so this is strange.

God isn’t Dead? from 3 sides to Every Story

Ah look at all the lonely people, losing faith
In a world full of despair. No one who cares,
Wondering where God disappeared.

I see the pain in everybody’s faces, asking why
The God up in the sky didn’t say goodbye.
Please tell me God didn’t die.

Please tell me God isn’t dead.
Please tell me God isn’t dead.
Please tell me God isn’t
I wanna know if he’s
Please tell me God isn’t
Tell me God isn’t dead.

I wanna know

How should I feel?

September 19, 2016 at 2:51 pm (Poetry)

How should I feel?
I want to be alone!
But then I want to be with people.
Should I actually be here?
No-one see me any way!
No-one sees the pain I feel!
