Forget the sin
Smile on the sinner
Sip a shot of gin
Don’t forget the ginger
Grab the lighter
Ignite a cigarette
Drink your concerns out
Smoke your dreams deep in

Get out of yourself
Let go of your imagination
Put yourself together
It’s only a heartbreak
Your soul is still there
Don’t put it on the stake
You look up to the sky
only you can take you there

People let you down because of you
They only do what you allow them to
Your barrier was weak so they sneaked
While you’re busy placing them at the peak
Turn away for a second or less
And they will turn you to a mess
Trust them with meaningless lies
Cause when they fall your secrets rise

Now you have to build yourself
Start with your ruined reputation
It requires no further education
To place the order back to the shelf
You’ve been there and done that
Stand up your tall and wear your hat
Run away make another beat in your heart

It’s only a heartbreak
Your soul is still there
Don’t put it on the stake
You look up to the sky
only you can take you there

You want the glory of romeo
You want the story of Juliet
Nobel made a mistake
Only few can take
Yet he found a way to payback
For his greatest sin
You’ve made a decision
And you got a concussion
Then find a way to stay on track

They said you were the left
I said you stood on the right
They said you’re the darkness
I said she’s the one to shine bright
They bet on the ruin that would come
I bet on the family that would be done

I rushed to the dreams we used to have
Thirsty for more of the drug I’ve been taking
You got me high like no weed could ever do
All your talks and actions and everything you do
Like my sixth sense you stood there
Never to be real but all I can feel

Days went on with a growing heart
It grew as much as we’re now apart
They claim for every male there’s a female
And for every charge there’s a bail
I paid it all and I’m done with my debt
They were righteous you’re not the one
I smoke my feelings out
Till I fell in love and moved on

I ran to our castle on the beach
Waiting for more of the love I’ve been taking
You got me drunk like no liquor could ever do
All your whispers and kisses and everything you do
Like my destiny you stood there
Never to be real but all I can feel

Now that I’ve moved on to something new
I ran out of prison just like one of a few
At first it felt strange, I said it can’t be true
What rests in my cage is beating again
Until it all came clear to me that it was you
I guess I’m liking this ongoing game
Destiny never lied when it wrote your name
Right next to mine yea right next to mine
You better not let yourself down this time
I’m still betting on you just like the first time

Abandoned Friendship

You showed up on my doorstep
In tears,
I took you in
And listened to your woes
You cried about how your friend
Abandoned your friendship
You could not understand how
One day the two of you were friends
And the next you weren’t
I shared with you how that same person
Treated my friendship the same way
Through shared pain and hurt
We became good friends
Now a few years later
You have treated me
The same exact way
You don’t even have a few
Hours to spare to go to lunch
(In the last 2 years)
With a so called good friend
You must have forgotten
How much being treated
So callously felt
I am sure you are a good friend
Just not to me

Can’t save the world

Can’t save the world

I have been told many times
By many people that
I can’t save the world.
But I try….
I take in stray cats,
I help lost dogs
I feed the wildlife
I try to help anyone
In need..

But try as I might
I tried for years
To save my marriage
But it is beyond saving
Beyond repair
The wounds are open
And gushing blood
No stitches or Band-Aids
Can repair
Lost hope
Why do I still despair?
If I can’t save this marriage
I sure can’t save the world.

Rate this poem

Here I stand after a year
Thinking about things I can tear
There is nothing left to be
As you took all the best of me
I can’t adapt to what you made of me
If ghosts exist you’re a one to be

I just want a moment to quit
I’m still in, cleaning your shit
By the flu of memories I’m hit
Recalling all forgetting a bit
Your name is something I can’t even spit
But you represent all that I find to fit

I stare into our images
I reach to your hair
To your legs on the chair
I reach to those lips
Sense your soft tender hips
I long for your smell
Making fire in me like hell
I give you an eye to eye
Like a first time you get shy
I cut the images
For you are not real
For you are not here
For you I will never heal

Madness can not deliver myself
A proper remedy from the shelf
After a some months of twelve
We’re apart like a giant and a dwarf
Your name is something I can’t even spit
But you represent all that I find to fit
