  1.     

Sleep

Sleep, sleep,
Come my way.
Let me sleep,
So I can start a new day.

Sleep, sleep,
I take my pill.
My mind won't sleep,
Too active with chills.

Sleep, sleep,
Show me how.
What's that, sleep,
How now brown cow?

Sleep, sleep,
My brain is delirious.
Stop playing tricks, sleep,
You're making me furious.

I Told You So

I told you this would happen,
You had better watch your step.
But I wasn't good enough,
And now with what are you left?

The right decisions are hard to come by,
You screw up more than once.
But when someone gives you a word of caution,
You shouldn't throw them a one-two punch.

I really didn't want to have to say it,
Because I hate it when people tell me.
But if you had payed more attention,
You would have seen what I could see.

Now you are left all by yourself,
The world won't toss you a bone.
But if you hadn't acted so high and mighty,
You wouldn't had been knocked off your throne.

Am I Being Mean?

Hey bitch, this poem is for you.
What's that, you itch?
Gee, I haven't a clue.
Maybe you're allergic to my man's glue.

Hi there whore, how are you these days?
Not too good, well that's too bad.
Could it possibly be your plan
To travel from man to man?

Hello slut, oh sorry, I meant friend.
What do you mean you got nipped in the bud?
I'm guessing here, it's only a hunch,
Was it when I punched you in the gut?

Stone Wall

I lost my grasp
On all that I restricted.
Misplacing control over my thoughts and feelings,
Now everyone knows too much.

The stone wall that protects me,
It cracked one day.
I tried to patch the flaw,
But my world got easier to manipulate.

I feel shameful,
Letting the gaps in my wall get bigger,
Opening my entrails
For the world to set their eyes on.

'The less you say, the less you feel,
The less you show to others,
Less the chance to be hurt.'
That was always the motto.

Now I take inventory,
Of all the emotions I let out.
Gather them one by one,
Take back all that everyone knows.

Grabbing more stone and mortar
I place emotions back where they belong,
Restoring the wall that had shattered,
A creation impossible to destroy.
