Outside Love

HughFreakingDillonHughFreakingDillon I'm from Winnipeg, you idiot! (Chris Jericho)Posts: 23,843
on my mind every single day
my first thought to my last
all I find, other things to say
my wish is to go forward and fast

I must commit that I can't commit
the ultimate crime against the soul
to release it before it's ready
some things just take their toll

a fake smile and
an unfeeling kiss
a short while and 
an unappealing bliss

outside love is nothing
when the inside is empty
just a shove into something
where never is plenty

    just came across this. any time chadwick posted that he liked something of mine, it really, really meant something. 

    (I don't even recall writing this)

    you knew he wasn't just being nice, that he really honestly felt that way.

    Once he offered to break a guys' legs who wouldn't stop making unwanted passes. What a sweetie.

    Good poem. I can relate.

    he was a different bird to be sure. 

    he also once told me he was going to drive a truck through the front of my house for something i said to another member. 

    ah, chadwick.

    Evsgjamm once said to me that he finds it best to meet poetry with poetry. Here is my feeble response.

    Dead inside
    No light outside
    Breadcrumbs all eaten up
    Nothing left in the cup

    No smiling eyes
    No butterflies
    No breath taken away
    The darkness is day

    Good Mourning

    Mourning the new morning
    Each beautiful dawn silently greets me
    The melodic birdsongs mock me
    The pink sky cuts my eyes
    As I wait for the darkness to fall
    Greeted by beautiful dreams
    Till the next
    Mourning

    A month later...many years ago.

    The beautiful warm sun shines deeply 
    Through my blessed life
    Capturing the energy
    That blows through me
    All the peoples' thoughts they share
    Cover the dark spots on my heart
    The blood from this pen
    Drains the sickness out of me.
    What do I choose to see?
    Empty black space...
    Shimmering stars...
