the ones that are initialed n.j.w. or s.w. or solemn-writ are mine. there are a few in the beginning credited to lethargiclunacy which is my old url. the rest are poems i liked and felt like sharing. I also tag all the poems I write under “poetry” or “poem.” the ones i reblog aren’t tagged.
Thank you for your kind words. Beautiful poems for beautiful people yeah? :)
Thanks to the editor for the blue tag and people who like my writing. though it baffles me why you do. I hope I don’t let you guys down with my future poetry. And thanks for liking my scribbles.
Sometimes it’s all we can do to stop killing ourselves.
I’m left bleeding with a hole in my chest
left out feeling like all the rest
you told me I was special
your voice was so gentle
but you walked out like the air
in my lungs thought we shared
something but it wasn’t nope
so much for all of my hope
so I’m left bleeding on the floor
my hearts extracted from my core
and every warm heartbeat I felt
from meeting you just up and left
and now it’s such a cold damn world
watching all my suppressed demons unfurl
they’re ravenous and waiting for the rest
of me to just give up all of my best
leaving me alone like a pile of leaves
blown away by the wind’s deeds
so I’m left bleeding all my feelings
leaving everything I felt really
watching it all flow down the drain
all of my life down a basin in vain
I think I’ll just lay here for a while
stiff and cold and violated and vile
waiting for my last visitor from hell
black robes and a scythe he lookin’ well
I’ll just close my eyes now and hope
my next life I’m not tied with so much rope
Just remember that the sun always rises somewhere in the world.
