Temptation

April 30th, 2011

I heard temptation say my name
It whispered in my ear
And all this guilt lays on my mind
Blasting for all to hear
The emptiness just can’t be filled
No matter who’s around
And the devil knows just what I want
But it never will be found
I found comfort in my ways
But it never fills the hole
And the more I try to drain my mind
The more my thoughts are full
And as I wait so pathetically
I wonder if anyone knows
I wait for a simple word
That passes as it goes
And these moments are slipping away
I’m wasting my own time
But I know to hold this in
I’ll always be just fine

Accomplice

January 28th, 2011

I’m still dreaming about you
I never pictured this outcome
You’re like a nightmare
That I can’t wake up from
So many words wasted
On poems written about you
I never wanted any of this
I hope you’re haunted too
Get out of jail free
Should not exist
As partners in crime
You also deserve this
I’m drowning in guilt
There is no remedy
You can leave a person in the past
But you can never erase the memory

Write You Away

December 18th, 2010

No other words to describe it
I still wonder in guilt
I call this confusion
Locked in the walls I built
They’re not coming down
I live life in shame
And the more I start to wonder
The more I feel insane
Nothing’s alright
Nothing’s okay
Why are you still on my mind
Why won’t you go away
I write you off
The words drop from my pen
But after sometime
You’re back once again
