No-one knows me,

I’m hiding behind a face.

Faking emotions on a daily base.

smiling, why thank you!

Laughing, oh Sir.

Sitting here writing this f*cking poetry blurb.

Can you not see through these eyes?

Can you not see through my deep blue lurk?

I question you,

Have you had nice day?

And then you yell,

Please look this way,

“I’ll pray for you with all my faith!”

Hiding Behind a Face

Hopeless Romantic X Practical Realist

[Art by James Muir]

[I will never give up on my man simply because he doesn’t live up to my unrealistic fantasies, look closely and I can see a man who works hard to give his family everything they need and I can see a man who loves me beyond words.]

 

My love, will you watch the sunset with me by the ocean?

Baby girl, it’s cold outside tonight.

Will you play me a song that you love?

I can’t think of any at the moment, I’m sorry.

Will you kiss me in the rain until our lips turn blue?

Why don’t we just stay inside where it’s warm?

Will you walk with me until the souls of our feet bleed?

You know I don’t like to go for pointless walks.

Will you marry me on the beach, in the summer, somewhere hot?

I would marry you right here and now.

Darling, will you love me forever?

Baby, I will love you forever more.

Hopeless Romantic X Practical Realist

Angels vs Devils

Above is the devil,

It’s trapped in mind.

Screaming at me,

‘Have a miserable time’.

Below is my shadow,

trapped to my side.

Desperately trying,

to flee from her crime.

I look to the sky

And I ask myself this,

Must I question the angels?

Or answer to death?

Angels vs Devils

Concentrate,

You weren’t put here to die.

Concentrate,

You weren’t put here to fly.

Concentrate and listen close,

The wind will whisper your fate,

Guided by the ghosts.

Concentrate and don’t let go,

The leaves with dance with hate.

Your mind is a powerful place.

This, they already know.

They count on murder,

They count on hate.

They run this world,

No pearly gates.

Except for the angels,

You can hear them singing in fear.

For the lives that were taken to settle a score.

For the lives that were taken to cover up more.

Concentrate,

Don’t be fooled.

You’re an angel in the dark

A secret weapon,

To destroy the patriarch.
