Poetic Verses

Email Poem | Today's Poetry

 I lied
Sometimes I lie
so you don't know
just how deep in the shadows
my heart and soul go

The fact is I'm broken
something you deny
Always trying to convince me
that if I spread my wings I can fly

I traded in my wings
the day reality crashed into me
There are just some demons
I will never free

If I were to do this
the pain I could not bare
It would be inflicted on you
that's a side of me I will not share

There are things that I have gone through
in fire I've always walked alone
What is hidden behind my eyes
are the evils I can't show

I am not a bad person
but I may not be the one for you
The disaster I am inside
you don't have the slightest clue

I can plaster a smile on my face
conceal the demon well
But let's be honest here
most days I'm stuck in hell

Let's look at this in reality
the two of us should not be
Both of us hiding who we are
so neither of us can see

I can't give you what you want
only a little of what you need
Love sometimes is not enough
especially when doubt has planted its seed

I don't ever want to see you hurt
knowing it was me who caused the pain
When anger rises inside of me
the demon won't be contained

I wish I could be more like
what it is you see
but I fear your eyes are blinded
when it comes to how they view me

Alone I can hurt no one
no rules, no games, no fear
But I know I'm in too deep
for you I'll always be here
